So, should I put ./home/ellie/Downloads/amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022-ubuntu-18.04/amdgpu.install in there?
Yes only change /amdgpu.install to ./amdgpu-install.

Code:
$ pwd
~/amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022-ubuntu-18.04
$ ls -lGg *ll
-rwxr-xr-x 1 6868 Oct 18 10:10 amdgpu-install
lrwxrwxrwx 1   14 Nov 26 21:17 amdgpu-pro-install -> amdgpu-install
$
The install script
Code:
amdgpu-install
is in the amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022-ubuntu-18.04 directory in whatever directory the download was extracted.
Code:
$ cd amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022-ubuntu-18.04
$ sh amdgpu-install
or
Code:
$ cd amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022-ubuntu-18.04
$ ./amdgpu-install
should run it.

Check your directory with the script in it. I'm thinking (according to the instructions) it should be ./amdgpu-install.

https://amdgpu-install.readthedocs.i...ll-script.html
I put in './amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022-ubuntu-18.04/amdgpu-install' and it came back Unsupported OS.

I'm about to go to work for a couple of hours, but I'll be back later. Thanks for helping. If you have any idea where to go from here, let me know. Otherwise, enjoy your evening. You're awesome for taking the time.

Try:

Code:
 
cd amdgpu-pro-18.40-676022-ubuntu-18.04
Than type:
Code:
./amdgpu-install
Don't work to hard.

Is the script executable?

Lol, I never do. Well, not true, but it's a rewarding job. It is executable, and maybe I did it wrong? I am alllllmost there with understanding it.

I wonder could the script be written to reject usage in Ubuntu's parent Debian or its derivative Mint? If so, I'd expect Debian or Mint repos to provide an appropriately conformed version.

Glad to hear it's a rewarding job.

Mine is too:-

That's good that it is executable. I'd like to know why it returned Unsupported OS.

When you have time run this command and post the output.

Code:
cat /etc/os-release

This is interesting, but I'm not sure what action to take. Are you thinking there is a version of the driver out there that would work better with Mint specifically? Bc I will say, I noticed in the files that the Documents file folder (within the download, not my system doc folder) had a changelog in it called 'changelog.Debian.gz'. Something? lol I don't know.

This looks like it MIGHT contain my solution somewhere, but ffs I cannot understand what they are talking about well enough to get my bearings and try anything. It's the link you gave me, Cat. I downloaded version 18 of this amdgpu pro, and I have Mint 19. Could THAT be the issue?
