I’m having a lot of problems installing the package fglrx. This is my system information:

seraphid@Astrocleyer ~ $ cat /etc/os-release

BUG_REPORT_URL="http://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/"
VERSION_CODENAME=sonya

and this is my error:

seraphid@Astrocleyer ~ $ sudo apt-get install fglrx

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

              xorg-video-abi-18 or
              xorg-video-abi-19

I have tried to clean the broken packages, and installing xserver-xorg-core, but nothing works. The goal of installing fglrx is for installing the catalyst control center from AMD.

  • Send your cv to AMD, wait to being employed, persuade your boss to maintain an abandoned code, work on it, release it.

  • So simply I can’t use my graphics card because AMD doesn’t want to? Sounds something marvelous
