Ok, cool. Thank you. I checked thoroughly, and there are no instructions in there. Just some sort of warranty and permissions type info. I ran both using both the run in terminal and jsut plain run options given to me after double clicking the install file(s). Still no reaction from Linux really. Gonna restart and see if it did it and just didn't pop up with a 'success' message.

Ok--

The driver is still downloading:-

Once it's on my system I'll open it, look at it and see if I can help you get it installed.
If not I'll have to ask another Guru or Moderator for their help.

I might be a Guru but I don't know it all-

UPDATE: After rebooting and re running the code 'dpkg -L amdgpu-pro', I found I had NOT successfully installed anything by double clicking on the included install files and running them.


* just read the above reply and that sounds fine. thanks for all your help so far, and your patience.

While your waiting have a look at this:

https://superuser.com/questions/9040...file-in-ubuntu

It should give you a basic idea of what you will have to do in the terminal as root:-

That doesn't seem right for 133561032 bytes that took me about 2 minutes to download on a cable connection as slow or slower than average in the USA.

https://amdgpu-install.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ has the instructions.

How do you invoke a script, and what do they mean by the '-y' option?

You invoke a script like this:

Code:
./name of script

Use of the -y option is recommended to avoid prompts from the package manager.

Ok. I put ./amdgpu.install in the terminal and hit enter. It said no such file or directory. So, should I put ./home/ellie/Downloads/amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022-ubuntu-18.04/amdgpu.install in there?

**** and yes, THNX mrmazda

You have to be in the directory in which the driver is in friend.

Let's say for example the driver was in my Downloads directory. I could change directory and run the script.

Code:
cd Downloads
Hit Enter
Type ls and hit Enter
Than type
./name of script and hit Enter
The script should take off:-

Once you have downloaded and extracted the AMDGPU-Pro tar archive, access the directory where you extracted it. Invoke the script as ./amdgpu-install. Exact name of script)

Oh, I think I get it. So... I copied the results from my terminal. Can you tell me what I did wrong?

ellie@ellie-MS-7B24:~$ cd Downloads

If this:

Code:
amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022-ubuntu-18.04
is the script run it like this:

Code:
./amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022-ubuntu-18.04
Check your directory with the script in it. I'm thinking (according to the instructions) it should be ./amdgpu-install.

If your still having trouble, right click on the script and go to properties.

Is it executable?
