AMD Radeon Ubuntu problem

pajuhesh80pajuhesh80 Member Posts: 39 Troubleshooter
Hello.
I have ubuntu and windows10 (dual boot) on my Aspire E1-572G.
I want to install AMD Radeon drivers on Ubuntu. I downloaded and installed four first files from here. No success.
Then I downloaded zip file from here but after running .run file, I see this error:
"ported versions are X.Org 6.9 or later, up to XServer 1.10 (default:v2:x86_64:lib32:XServer 1.19.6_64a:none:4.15.0-22-generic:)
Installation will not proceed"
Also tried to download AMD Catalyst™ 14.6 Beta for Linux. But when I click download link, it redirects to Download Not Complete page.
when I run "lspci | grep VGA" output is:
"00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)"
There is no AMD. But when I run "lspci" last line of  output is:
"03:00.0 Display controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Opal XT [Radeon R7 M265] (rev ff)"
AMD works well on windows10.
What do I have to do?
***
Ubuntu version: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Graphic card: AMD Radeon R7 M265

    If you're running Ubuntu 18.04, you already have the open source AMD drivers installed. They're integrated into Mesa and the Linux kernel. However, if you want the absolute latest as long as you're running your system, there's an excellent PPA that packages Git versions of Mesa.

    Following PPA also includes the Gallium Nine patches which enable DirectX9 support for Mesa. You can use it along with Wine to play older Windows games with near native performance.  PPA details https://launchpad.net/~oibaf
    $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
    $ sudo apt-get update
    After you've added the PPA, update Apt, and run a full upgrade.
    $ sudo apt update && sudo apt -y upgrade
    Apt will automatically pull in the updated packages from the PPA.

    Enable DRI3

    DRI3 will increase graphical performance with the AMDGPU drivers. In order to enable it, you need to add a few lines to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Open it with sudo using your favorite text editor. Add in the block below.
    Section "Device"
        Identifier "AMDGPU"
        Driver "amdgpu"
        Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"
        Option "DRI" "3"
    EndSection
    Once you've added that. Save, and restart your computer. When it reboots, you'll be using the latest version of Mesa with DRI3 enabled.

    To see the list of adapters ( VGA / 3D / DISPLAY )

    Run command lspci -k | grep -EA3 'VGA|3D|Display'

    to check which one is in use type command

    glxinfo | grep OpenGL

    Thanks

    Thank you for your replay.
    Seems that ppa.launchpad.net is blocked in Iran. I can't use that. Is there another way to install that?
    Enable DRI3: there is no xorg.conf file!
    I ran those commands and here are outputs:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
    	Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller
    	Kernel driver in use: i915
    	Kernel modules: i915

    	Kernel driver in use: radeon
    	Kernel modules: radeon, amdgpu
    
    and:
    OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Haswell Mobile 
    OpenGL core profile version string: 4.5 (Core Profile) Mesa 18.0.0-rc5

    OpenGL core profile context flags: (none)
    OpenGL core profile profile mask: core profile

    OpenGL extensions:
    OpenGL ES profile version string: OpenGL ES 3.1 Mesa 18.0.0-rc5
    OpenGL ES profile shading language version string: OpenGL ES GLSL ES 3.10
    OpenGL ES profile extensions:
    *sometimes before shutdown I see a line like this:
    [   50.910416] radeon 0000:03:00.0: failed VCE resume (-110).
    I saw that in older ubuntu versions also (while OS was booting).

    as my experience with linux, you can't use linux and switchable graphics in the same sentence.
