here and here, I found that things weren't as smooth as they could be, with Compiz crashing out from time to time.
I've played around over the past two days ( well, what else is Christmas Day and Boxing Day for ) and have taken a slightly different path to the same destination.
Instead of using Synaptic, Envy or apt get install, I chose to download the proprietary ATI driver from here.
This downloads a 80 MB file ati-driver-installer-8-12-x86.x86_64.run. It's necessary to make this file executable ( chmod +x ati-driver-installer-8-12-x86.x86_64.run ) and then execute it with root privileges ( sudo ./ati-driver-installer-8-12-x86.x86_64.run ).
The installer walks you through a series of simple screens, and, following a reboot, you're good to go.
Will continue to play ...
