I'm running Linux Mint 16 and have a Radeon HD6670 card and an AMD A6-3670 APU with its own GPU capabilities. The event log states: "No usable GPUs found". I'm using xserver-xorg-video-ati driver which is the one recommended. I have SETI set up to work with a GPU (but one is not being detected by BOINC). I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, just not sure what. Please can anyone guide me on what I need to do to get GPU working on SETI?

You need drivers that support OpenCL
I don't know the Linux world but think that only drivers from ATI AMD have OpenCL
After installation of ATI AMD drivers you can test the functionality of OpenCL by LuxMark
