Hi, provide us with information how you try to run BBox:

1. From flash
2. HD install
3. VM install (if yes, you can't install them because virtual machines use own drivers for graphic)

To install drivers:

Quote
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install fglrx

When you are done with install, remove this repository from your /etc/apt/sources.list.d folder if you don't want to have problems wtih your system.

Quote
sudo apt-add-repository -r ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa

If this is not good version for you (this will install version 13.2 i think so) go to :

It didn't work :'( 
1. HDD Install
2. AMD/Intel Hybrid Graphics
The problem is the new intel graphics driver???

I don't see how that is possible, i tested last night, and install working just fine. I don't have AMD but, i don't see what is wrong with yours. You don't provide us information from your log file and you don't explain error you get. You need to share that information to us like that we can assist you.

Hope that you understand.

 ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver (**experimental** beta) works.
Thanks!
