Bug Description

When trying to install fglrx / fglrx-updates driver listed in the software-properties-gtk on 14.04.2
the installation failed (see bug 1446037), but it failed silently if you didn't run the software-properties-gtk from a terminal.

It should provide a log for user to check, or tell user where to find the log, otherwise it would be difficult for debugging.
