I installed it, but I can't understand why I have to run steam in a root terminal, or it says command not found... that's annoying and I don't usually run applications as root user, is there a way to edit the script and make steam work for a normal user? I've seen zachr asking that but I don't see the answer.. could you explain me how you made it work for every user?
Yeah, Don't run the script with sudo.
Please excuse my mistake I haven't used Ubuntu for quite some time. But, As far as I know you have to use xorg 1.12 with the legacy driver which is also available on the official amd website. So, You should be able to manually install that way. Also, I thought Ubuntu 12.04 shipped with xorg 1.12?
The reason you have breakage is because HD 4xxx and lower need the legacy driver.
This guide will explain how to get the fglrx legacy driver via ppa located under the "Our Solution" tab.

I just migrated over from Arch a few days ago and I honestly didn't have a problem with the repo drivers on Waldorf.
Note: Just noticed when this guide was made and the info is really outdated now. The xorg 1.12 compatility issues have been resolved with the catalyst 12.6 update back a few months ago which is the current version used in the repo.
Actually, It is possible to view flash drm content such as Amazon Instant Video on Google Chrome. To do this you need to navigate in the address bar to > chrome://plugins > click "details" in the upper right > disable libpepflashplayer.so plugin listed within the Adobe Flash tab. Note: libflashplayer.so should be left enabled.
Also, Like you mentioned the hal package must be installed since this is required to watch flash drm as well. Anyways, Just thought I'd let you know.
