Jockey still failed to detect any available proprietary drivers to install. However, I installed fglrx via Synaptic (along with the dependencies) and rebooted. No xorg.conf was present until I performed a sudo aticonfig --initial and a sudo service gdm restart. Jockey then indicated that the proprietary driver ATI Fire GL. (Test Failed because jockey did not detect any proprietary drivers for installation although it was successful with a workaround.)
