Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon and AMD GPU

Recommended Posts

I was setting up my Folding rig on Linux Mint Cinnamon, and yet once again, my AMD graphics card refuses to work.  Seems as though the Linux kernel only favors the green team rather than red.

Where do I download compatible drivers for my AMD card? I have:  ASUS Radeon R7-250, 1GB GDDR5

 

I would have picked a subtle NVIDIA drop-in replacement, but the motherboard uses PCIE 2.x cards.  It didn't have issues running this PCIE 3.0 card when I last used this as a gaming rig, albeit a bit bottlenecked.

And in the past whenever I go install the drivers for Ubuntu and other Debian-based operating systems, it had locked me out of the desktop, crashed X-Window System, etc.

from my understanding your card is not supported with amd's latest linux drivers from their web site so you are stuck using the open source driver included in the kernel and installed already.

if it was supported (which according to amd's site it is, which confuses me and i have no way to test it), seeing how mint 19 is based on ubuntu 18.04 then you could have installed the driver from here :- https://www.amd.com/en/support
