@ozzy: Press alt + F2 and type Terminal. After that navigate to the folder of the miner using cd.

Which Catalyst version is installed? Are there multiple cards installed (I'm wondering what * - Default adapter means)? If there are multiple cards you have to run sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial and then reboot. Furthermore, is there a running X-server because OpenCL does only work without X-server, if there is a not too old Catalyst version installed and if the application is run with sudo (that is not best practice because of security reasons)? Could you post the output of dmesg | grep -i fglrx?

Just one card. The Motherboard also has an onboard adapter, which is not in use. So I don't think it has any influence.

Catalyst 14.3 Beta.

How do I know if X-Server is running?

Could you tell me what this line of command does? I just want to know what I'm messing with!

Thanks

Is the onboard adapter a AMD or Intel adapter? Perhaps you can PM me your xorg.conf.
If ps -A | grep X shows any non-void output then a X-server is running. Did you install one Catalyst version first and then another? This could wreck the driver if the old version is not removed cleanly. Another possibility is that you did not install all necessary packages before installing the driver. This guide helps http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Saucy_Installation_Guide but make sure you use the right code-name of your Ubuntu version.

Hm, this seems to be ok. Perhaps running fglrxinfo reveals some errors but my guess is that the installation of the driver is incomplete. Which guide did you use (not using a guide will certainly fail for beginners)?

I do not know which card are you using because the your linked guide says "Important: I suggest going with 13.11 since 14.x seems to break stuff for basically all 290 users."

Click on the icon in the left bar, below the one that looks like a keyboard. It's the black screen looking one with ">_" in it.

I'm afraid there seems to be an effort across all OS's to make things less obvious or more touchscreen like and that includes Ubuntu's custom desktop-UI.

I'm using a Gigabyte 280X. I tried before with the 13 Cat, same output. :/

Once there went something with the Catalyst wrong it is very difficult to repair the damage (on Linux).  I guess that the best thing is to try a fresh Ubuntu installation.
