How To Install AMDGPU-PRO On Ubuntu 16.04 (Guide)

506 ratings | 78194 views
A quick tutorial video for installing the AMD proprietary driver on Ubuntu 16.04. Recommended that you watch the video in at least 720p for clarity of text. I have included English subtitles to assist you, just enable it in CC. This video is meant for beginners who have just done a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 on their computers or are currently running the open source drivers and want to use the proprietary driver for their AMD card. Step-by-step: 1. Make sure you have an Internet Connection. 2. Download the AMDGPU-PRO driver from their website. 3. Right click and Extract the driver file. 4. Open a new terminal, type in 'cd' without the quotes and then pull the driver folder into the terminal and hit Enter. 5. Type in the same terminal the following and hit Enter: sudo ./amdgpu-pro-install 6. Restart Ubuntu once it's done. 7. You're done! To check that it installed successfully, open a Terminal. Enter the following: dpkg -l amdgpu-pro It should now list out the amdgpu-pro driver and it's version number AMD driver link: https://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ubuntu/amdgpu-pro-16.40-348864.tar.xz Please note, if you're using a hybrid/crossfire/laptop things may be different. I will not be able to assist you here as AMD's own drivers struggle to work properly in these scenarios. My main computer rig specs: CPU - Intel i7-4770 3.4Ghz GPU - AMD R7 260X 1GB RAM - 16GB DDR3 ADATA 1600MHz OS - Ubuntu 16.04 64Bit/Windows 10 Pro 64Bit (Dual Boot) Video recorded using: Media Express Blackmagic Intensity Pro 4k Audacity 2.1.2 Blue Yeti Mic Video edited using the following software: KDENLIVE 15.12.3 GIMP 2.8.16 Download Ubuntu 16.04 and 16.10 for free: http://www.ubuntu.com/ Download GIMP 2.8.16 for free: http://www.gimp.org/ My small development blog: techpromad.wordpress.com My alias in ubuntuforums.org: myromance123 About me: I'm just a Malaysian, who loves Ubuntu and Linux, and more so gaming!

I got an AMD FirePro W5170M in a Dell Precision 7510 ( bought in December 2016 ), and last driver for Linux is from Januay 2015. Now I cannot upgrade my OS version. Total joke by Dell and AMD. Looks like support is done according to the revenue stream. I will not buy Dell or AMD anymore

Hi there! I just installed this a few hours ago on Ubuntu 16.04 and now everytime I boot I get a black screen with nothing on it. Anyway to fix this? Please don't suggest options that require putting in commands unless they're for the grub menu, I can't bring up a terminal whatsoever.

I had the problem when restarting the laptop, the system did not start, the solution was to stop the presentation in black screen type ctrl + alt + (f1 or f2) depends on your device, login mode will appear and write: sudo apt-get remove amd * then: sudo reboot and ready.

beadon1 (9 months ago)
it looks like you're getting errors in your UI, the package *is* installed as you check with the package manager, but the drivers are not getting used by Ubuntu (you need to confirm that with the X server). If you follow the error messages closely you will see that X windows is actually defaulting to software rendering.

Christopher Staples I finally got OpenCL working on RX 550 in Ubuntu 17.10. Here's what I did: 1. Remove ALL previous OpenCL associations. :~$ dpkg --get-selections |grep opencl :~$ sudo apt autoremove [whateveroutputyougotfrompreviouscommand] 2. Download and install the AMDGPU-Pro Beta Driver version 17.40. This is the only driver version that seems to work with this card. :~$ ./amdgpu-pro-install --compute 3. Follow AMDs instructions "Enabling Large Page Support" to edit grub.

Jorge Arturo Pérez Arcos (11 months ago)
I had Ubuntu 16.04 and the same problems, black screen. The problem was caused for the linux kernel, if you used the console like root from the grub options, you'd realize the problems in the amdgpu-pro error log. THE SOLUTION, just upgrade your linux kernel, in my case (Ubuntu 16.04), I upgraded to 4.5 and that was all, the next time I installed amdgpu-pro I had no problems. :)

I have version 16.60 of this driver installed successfully, however I cannot seem to get Vulkan to work. I can confirm that the driver is installed, as some programs I know don't work with it crash. The steps on AMD's website do not work, and one of the ways I can confirm this is that the Dolphin emulator's Vulkan backend gives me an error when I select it. Could you possibly make a video showing how to install Vulkan with this driver? Thanks.

one point u forgot to put your name in the video group, u have only installed the driver your desktop has no openGL support. ::: Configure ::: Ensure that your user account is a member of the "video" group prior to using the vulkan driver. You can find which groups you are a member of with the following command: groups To add yourself to the video group you will need the sudo password and can use the following command: sudo usermod -a -G video $LOGNAME You will need to log out and in again to activate this change. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Read help file before u make a video !!! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDGPU-PRO-Install.aspx

Not only you have to put your user to the video group, but after you do that and before the driver installation you have to logout and login again (or reboot).

Nerangen Pathum (1 year ago)
my installation was successful, however upon restarting my monitor turns off... and nothing happens there after :( I'm an R9-380 user
Not after this! You have to first put your user to the video group and then logout and login back (or reboot) and then proceed with the installation. Also you have to change the command a little bit with the user name of yours: If you username is neranjan, then you have to give the command "sudo usermod -a -G video neranjan".
morgogs (1 year ago)
Same :(. I think you need to run the "sudo usermod -a -G video $LOGNAME " after this.

4.4 doesn't support all the features, so should I upgrade the Kernel to 4.8/4.9? What's the best way to get a newer Kernel, so that it will still be updated automatically? Do I need to update AMDGPU-PRO manually or is this automatically? It said that FreeSync now should be supported under Linux. Are there any options to turn it on/off and setting target framerates like in Windows?
Dr. NGamer (1 year ago)
The MSI R9 390 is still not working on the driver. It cause hard flickering in games :(
Dr. NGamer (1 year ago)
the fglrx or the amdgpu-pro drivers?
Stryker A. Wolfe (1 year ago)
Dr. NGamer If 60Hz is your max than the only option is to get another one with higher refresh rate. But for me the 60 and 120Hz setting fixes the issues with flickering. 90 and 144Hz I get issues. It's weird but I can't go back to proprietary driver since I updated to 4.9.1 kernel and AMD doesn't support it yet.
Dr. NGamer (1 year ago)
ok thanks :D, but i have an 60Hz Screen. And how can i switch the refresh rate?
Stryker A. Wolfe (1 year ago)
Dr. NGamer It happened to me but I found an unusual fix. After wasting money on a second DP cable and DVI. I found that setting the refresh rate to 120Hz fixed it for me. As soon as I switched back to 144Hz the flickering and lags came back.
Dr. NGamer (1 year ago)
ahh good to know :D. But with Mesa it flickers too and hangs :( so i cant use it

Unfortunately, no. AMD's driver still does not support 16.10. There may be ways to hack the driver to get it working, but I don't know the steps.

thanks dude, helps a lot..!
Friend, I'm sorry for my English. Thank you very much for sharing this video with us. Friend I followed the steps of your video, however when restarting my PC was an infinite black screen, I had no video signal ... What could be happening? When I used vgas from Nvidia, I always created a new Xorg.conf. I even thought if there is that too for Vgas from AMD. Appreciate your help! My Pc is an Asus Rampage Extreme 3, RX 480 XFX Black Edition 8GB, Intel Xeon x5660.
Before proceed with the installation of the driver, did you put your user to the video group? If yes, did you logged out and logged in again after that (or reboot) before the installation of the driver or you installed the driver just after you put your user to the video group? Also are you sure you installed the right driver? What version of Linux is installed in your PC? The right order: Put your user to the video group with "sudo usermod -a -G video username" (replace "username" with your username). Log out and login again (or reboot) and then proceed with the installation of the driver.

I have an Hp pavilion (ab141na) with a10-8780p and a radeon r8 (cant really figure it out). Ubuntu 16.04 is booting only with nomodeset (grub). I tried the lspci -k | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D' i've got the following results: 00:01.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Carrizo (rev c4) Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Carrizo Kernel modules: amdgpu Is it possible to install a driver to work with a decent graphics mode? I dont care if its 15.10 or 16.04 or 16.10. Please advice
George Ntavelis (1 year ago)
Awwww that was quick :) Thank you for your answer! Yes that is correct. Its an A10 8780p carrizo chip with an amd radeon r7 m360 according to hp site. At first i wasnt even able to boot the live cd (ubuntu 16.04). I dont know why, the operating system was halted and all i had it was a black screen. I have checked again and again the md5 hash and it was correct. I have read somewhere on the internet to put the nomodeset option to grub and try again. It worked, i installed the 16.04 of ubuntu and i thought that everything was ok. So now, i have everytime to edit the grub and add the nomodeset in order to have a gui. I never had an issue like this one before. I always enjoyed ubuntu distro because it is straight forward for a beginner like me. I dont know what to do really. I will try to follow your instructions :) Again thank you for your time :)
Penguin Recordings (1 year ago)
By default, when you first install Ubuntu you already have a driver. It's the open source AMD radeon or amdgpu driver. You should really only attempt to install the PRO driver if you need access to Vulkan, or you're checking for performance improvements. The problem here is your laptop is using a new chip called Carrizo, and if HP's webpage is correct you have an AMD Radeon R7 M360 discrete card in there as well. This means your laptop is in a Crossfire configuration most likely. AMD's CrossFire support is very bad on Linux. When you first install Ubuntu, are you able to access the desktop? If yes, then my advice to you is to use the open source driver you're using and not the PRO driver. To get the latest open source driver, you can install the Padoka PPA and simply update Ubuntu and restart. That should get you the latest amdgpu open source driver. It's possible to switch between the APU and the GPU, but I can't help you with that. Right now it seems you're on the APU only which is why performance may not be that great.

Can not get two PPAs
Penguin Recordings (1 year ago)
With Intel graphics, you already have a driver installed automatically on Ubuntu. If you would like to update that driver, you can use the Oibaf PPA or the Padoka PPA. 1. Install either one of those PPAs 2. Update Ubuntu 3. restart. That should be it.
