I tried to install the proprietary fglrx AMD graphics driver on my computer which is running Freya, however it didn't work. Seems my graphics card is just too old and is no longer supported. (That's the last AMD card i'm going to be buying.)
Long story short I purged the installation of fglrx* but now it just boots to a blanks screen. I can still access the command line and strangely enough within command line it does seem to be using the correct driver (or at least recognizing my monitor's native resolution)
Nothing I've done so far seems to be working, and following any of the guides I've found online have been fruitless. (They're all written for Ubuntu which doesn't error out when trying to reinstall xserver-xorg with an error about gnome-control-center)
Any help would be greatly appreciated. At this point I'm just trying to revert to the graphics drivers it was using after installing from the CD-ROM.
And before anyone says it, no reinstalling is not an option.
