Are you trying to use GNOME 3 with fglrx? That won't work, as stated in Jessie's release notes.

That's why I was asking...

Please show me where in your post where it says what desktop environment you are using (hint: ldm and gdm do not provide this information, they only manage the desktop(s)).

Forget you, if you get defensive about a simple question, fix your own damn screwup.

Then there are many others, you can choose the ones you like best.
Nobody, is going to write a manual here, just for you.
