Before I found out about a different script for 19.04, I had to install 18.04 just test out amdgpu on Ubuntu.

If I install on Manjaro it'll work but it breaks Vulkan. Out of the box, the Radeon VII renders really slow.

@Ashark - Still, thank you for all that you have done. I'll continue to test it out some more because DKMS gives me errors too.

(TimeShift helps out a lot if something goes wrong)

@Ashark I have a black screen with moving mouse pointer. I can get to dell splash screen only. Can we please see if your script works in Kbuntu 19.10 and advise me what to install first before I try to install the graphics. Ubuntu 18.04 runs like a champ with 0 errors so I have to do something. Thanks for all the help.

@ Ashark so I see at the bottom of the page about the black screen.I believe this is what happened to me when I tried it so now I really have no idea if I should try it again or not but I believe I will. I have a switch to disable switchable graphics in Bios but I am worried about heating problems. I use my PC a lot. And like you I see no info on the other packages.

@Ashark And thank you for sure. let me ask you since the PC came with Ubuntu would I be better off in Ubuntu. I really don't care for Ubuntu but for for the sake having the same packages what is your opinion?? I would be I guess trying Kubuntu 19.10 or .04 because my wifi is too new for KDE neon installer or Kubuntu lts.

@Ashark And that would so greatly appreciated because for someone like me that has only ever had Intel up until this point I am feeling a little confused. I have used Arch for 2 years and when I got this new AMD Pro card for some reason I can install Arch base and make it thru the first reboot with no problem but when I install plasma desktop as I have done a million times I just get a black screen. I am on manjaro now because of it.I am sure I am missing something probably about the drivers but I am not sure. I tried 4 times before I gave up so I did try. Any help or wiki edits to help would be greatly appreciated.I have been contemplating all day moving to Kubuntu 19.04 or 19.10 because Ubuntu came oem on the laptop but it is gnome and I don't use gnome. I am stuck. I have a ton or errors in the logs and with the OEM Ubuntu had 0 errors. Also I normally enable early KMS on intel but I am not sure whether I can do that or not now either.

@freefreeno I have just read your comment on my youtube video. I think I will edit the AMDGPU PRO page to contain more extensive information, but I do not know all details to be honest.

freefreeno commented on 2019-10-18 05:12

Can someone please tell me if this and the lib32-amdgpu-pro-libgl are the only two packages to install to get this up and going. I have intel driver and the normal amdgpu already but the wiki just states to install these two and that is it.It would really be of help to just to pin a comment here with all the packages needed and whether they will automatically install or if we need to install things first and afterwards. Also do we need to be in the video group like in Ubuntu? One more thing is having xf86-video-intel required or can we run just the modesetting driver and xf86-video-amdgpu then the the pro diver on top. I have a new laptop with AMD Radeon PRO and this is the only reason I am wanting to install this. Please help clarify if you don't mind. If you have the PRO graphics card installing the PRO driver is recommended correct ???

@aDogCalledSpot Can you provide exact actions, so I could reproduce?
