    I also tried to add to the spec patch that posted ext73 but it did not work.
    Unpack the driver in a directory (--extract dirname)

    find the /common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/firegl_public.c file (relative to the extract folder)

    Just look for this around line nr 821:

    Code:
    root = KCL_create_proc_dir(NULL, "ati", S_IFDIR);
    amd replace it with this (add "|S_IRUGO|S_IXUGO"):
    Code:
    root = KCL_create_proc_dir(NULL, "ati", S_IFDIR|S_IRUGO|S_IXUGO);
    Save the file, install with

    Code:
    sudo ./ati-installer --arguments --install
    run from the folder where it was extracted.

    If it complains about previously installed stuff ,use

    Code:
    sudo ./ati-installer --arguments --install --force

      Brutal Legend menu fixed

      (just a quick check) For me, this Cat 13.8b1 fixed the corrupted menus in Brutal Legend.

        kde 4.11, ati fglrx 13.8 beta, ubuntu 13.04 - opengl doesn't work

        Hi,

        I have just upgraded to ubuntu 13.04 with kernel 3.10.6. After that I have updated my fglrx to 13.8 beta and after that I have added ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports and I have upgraded my system.
        After reboot my effects settings changed to xrander, so I tried to apply new opengl 2.1,2.0 and 3.1 but none of them works. It says that "it was not possible to activate effects using those options, check the X configuration or change the options about the composition type".

        Here is my xorg.conf:

        and my Xorg.0.log:

            You should have updated your system before you installed the driver.

            I am not an expert, but would try just to install the amd drivers again.

              No update problem, its a driver issue.
              He has 2 choices - applies the patch (its in this thread somewhere afaik) and reinstalls the driver or launches opengl apps as root (not really desired).

                yes it is. The problem is that those drivers are a .sh file, I don't know how to extract them and apply patch in there.
                Btw I also tried to reinstall 13.4 drivers with kernel 3.8 and everything works fine.
                I hope it will be fixed with next fglrx release.

                Thanks

                  The following command helps before launching steam or any games

                  sudo chmod -R 777 /proc/ati/

                    That will have to do after every reboot.
