Have you tried the sgfxi?


I ran the sgfxi script with an ATI card on Debian and it worked well (it 
also does Nvidia as well), it installed the ATI drivers for my card.

Looking at the Wiki it say it now been expanded to work on Ubuntu as 
well, so It might work for you if you can get to a cli.

The sgfxi web site can be found here
