My bug 428810 was considered a duplicate of this one.

I am on Karmic Koala Kubuntu and trying to activate proprietary fglrx driver in Karmic Koala. It just hangs and never activates. So I cannot get the Catalyst 9.10 driver installed.

Use jockey-gtk to install it in Kubuntu.

user@computer:~$ sudo apt-get install jockey-gtk
user@computer:~$ sudo jockey-gtk
Install the Driver and be lucky;)

If you use jockey-text you can enable the driver without installing jockey-gtk. Just run:

$ sudo jockey-text -u
[will update the driver list]

$ sudo jockey-text -c
[will check for new usable drivers]

$ sudo jockey-text -l
[will list all available drivers for your system]

$sudo jockey-text -e [driver]
[will enable driver for your system. for example on my machine I used 'sudo jockey-text -e xorg:fglrx' to enable my ATI drivers]
