First off, let me apologize as I'm still at the bottom of the learning curve of Linux; hence the likely silly question and the fact that I'm posting it in this forum. That said:
I have a Radeon HD 6970 graphics card, but right now Linux Mint 14 is using a generic graphics card driver. For the most part this driver is fine, but on occassional boots certain letters are missing from the menus. I downloaded the latest driver from the AMD website, but it came in a .run file and Linux can't utilize that file.
I am assuming that I'll have to install the driver through the terminal, but I am lost at where to even begin to do this. I can copy and paste or re-type what people give me, but if I really am to get in to having Linux take over my Windows desktop, learning how to find/determine these strings on my own seems not only worthwhile, but essential.
All that said, does anyone know how to go about installing the ATi driver for my Radeon HD 6970?
