Hi, this is very easy to do from Mint 17 but first let me tell a bit about my PC.

     Board - Gigabyte F2A88X-D3H
     CPU/APU - A4-6300
     Memory - Kingston HyperX 4 GB
     HDD - old from my Sony that the graphics broken will update to SSD.

My system info..

you can see Linux Mint 17
kernel -
AMD A4-6300
graphics HD8370D

Test and working with this hardware and kernel, if you have the same kernel and APU then go to the AMD website and download the driver 14.201.1008



after the download finish go to where you save it and extract,

you will have this folder fglrx-14.201.1008, inside you have """" if click in that file you can run from terminal..

this now will run from terminal will ask for password and install..

reboot and then run in terminal the command
and you will have the same output of my snapshot.
