To avoid confusion with the Xorg configuration, you may want to delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and use the following command to have it generated (assuming 2 monitors per card): prompt$ aticonfig --initial http://alladinsys.com/debian-jessie/debian-xorg-conf-ati-driver.php
Unfortunately fglrx/Catalyst trigger segfaults in Xorg newer than 1.11.x, and the driver was removed from Wheezy and Sid. This service is sponsored by 1&1 Internet AG.
