Bug Description

Laptop is an Acer Aspire V5-552PG-X809. AMD A10-5757M Processor with Dual Graphics (Radeon HD 8560M embedded, and Radeon 8750M dedicated). FGLRX driver was working fantastically prior to upgrade to Ubuntu 14.10. After upgrade, after login to desktop Unity will not fully load (desktop loads, but Dash and unity side bar does not). FGLRXINFO reports no devices found.

I have tried the FGLRX, FGLRX-UPDATES, and the latest driver straight from AMD, none of them have worked for me.
