Welcome pl0xy to Linux Mint Forums,

Unfortunately I think your card is not yet supported with linux drivers. It's not Mint's fault as AMD has not released the driver for open source yet.
here's an Article that will enlighten.

That being said someone may have gotten it to work and have a work around until the official drivers are released.

There is the Catalyst driver page that may be of help but remember these are experimental.

Hi. I have the same problem. Catalyst doesn't seem to work for me either. Nor do any flash programs, but I have flash installed. Just bumping this thread to see if anyone has any recent info on this.
