    Doesn’t work on my end, direct rendering went tits up and this is the only relevant output from the terminal:
    libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/dri/
    libGL error: open uki failed (Operation not permitted)

    And now I know why… Fuckin’ AMD can’t make a driver worth a fuck.
    Any way, here’s how to solve it.

    1. Make executable, either through chmod or the right-click – properties – permissions tab

    2. Run it (not as root) it’ll extract everything to a subfolder from where you have the .run file.
    eg.: In my case it was called “fglrx-install.OFVhy5

    3. Enter your password and minimize the installer (Don’t close it)

    4. Inside that temporary folder it creates do a search for firegl_public.c

    5. Open firegl_public.c and do a search for this line:
    root = KCL_create_proc_dir(NULL, “ati”, S_IFDIR);

    6. Replace it with this one:
    root = KCL_create_proc_dir(NULL, “ati”, S_IFDIR|S_IRUGO|S_IXUGO);

    7. Now you can resume the install and reboot when prompted.
