I had always been a Windows user, But yesterday I downloaded and install ubuntu 18.04 TLS from this page https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop, But i can't find a way to install AMD graphic drivers,
Right now linux only works in recovery mode, in normal mode it shows a blank purple screen and nothing works, after searching on internet i found there could be something wrong with my graphic drivers, i have tried many things to install amd graphic drivers on my laptop, But nothing seems to work, I ran this command on my laptop
lspci -nn | grep -E 'VGA|Display'
and the results are
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller [8086:0166] (rev 09)
01:00.0 Display controller : Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Sun XT [Radeon HD 8670A/8670M/8690M / R5 M330 / M430 / R7 M520] [1002:6660]
So i have a hybrid graphic cards or something, I tried this installation guide https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-install-the-latest-amd-radeon-drivers-on-ubuntu-18-04-bionic-beaver-linux but didn't work (even for the users in comment section),
It was very easy on windows, i would switch back to windows, But just wanted to ask here for last time. is there any solution available for installing amd graphic drivers on ubuntu 18.04 ?
You can do this quite easily without having to download anything and installing it in a way that is not automatically updated.
Use the Ubuntu GPU PPA
First add the Ubuntu GPU PPA to your system. From the command line run:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt-get update
Then go to your activities window (grid of nine dots on dock) and search for "software" and click on the "Software & Updates" icon.
Click on the additional drivers tab and you can install drivers there.
