i simply went to the amd site
and downloaded the driver, which was a .run file which couldnt be opened. the page came with a pdf that said intaller instructions so im following tha.
when i tried t click the .run file it read this
Could not open the file /home/david/Downloads/at…r-10-7-x86.x86_64 (2).run.
and then says "gedit has not been able to detect the character encoding.
Please check that you are not trying to open a binary file.
Select a character encoding from the menu and try again."
