but to install fglrx, you really should use the Additional Drivers tool, or
whatever it is called in Lucid - it is in the System menu.
If you want to install it manually, you need to do more than just install
fglrx, you need to run the command:
$ sudo aticonfig --initial
Which sets up a basic xorg.conf
(note that using the restricted drivers/additional drivers tool does this step
I don't know if that will help with the usb issue, but it is worth a shot.
Perhaps the lack of the xorg.conf as needed by the driver is confuing things.
