Graphics Card
ATI Radeon HD 3450 Video Card

AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx

Operating System
xubuntu 13.04

Issue Details

When I run the driver installer I get the following error and it quits the installer

ATI error 

Here are the contents of the log file

"Check if system has the tools required for installation.
fglrx installation requires that the system have kernel headers.  /lib/modules/3.8.0-19-generic/build/include/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system.
One or more tools required for installation cannot be found on the system. Install the required tools before installing the fglrx driver.
Optionally, run the installer with --force option to install without the tools.
Forcing install will disable AMD hardware acceleration and may make your system unstable. Not recommended."

My system is a "Dell OptiPlex 960 " desktop with 4Gs of RAM, 3.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 processor, and Intel Q45 chipset.

Any help would be most appreciated

Radeon HD 2000, 3000, 4000 are legacy cards and there are no official AMD driver for Ubuntu 13.04 because latest supported driver for these cards is 13.1 with support up to kernel version 3.4.
