AMD Graphics Card Mint 17

Post by keeper20 »

I recently bought an AMD Radeon R9 290x graphics card and am trying to install it on my Mint 17 OS. I tried installing the drivers using the fgrlx-amdcccle program in the Software Manager but after installing I can't seem to find the program on my computer. I've also been to the AMD website to install the drivers. I am able to run the program but cannot find the correct drivers for my system. Any help is greatly appreciated.
