I had always been a Windows user, But yesterday I downloaded and install Ubuntu 18.04 LTS from this page, But I can't find a way to install AMD graphic drivers,
Right now Linux only works in recovery mode, in normal mode it shows a blank purple screen and nothing works, after searching on internet I found there could be something wrong with my graphic drivers, I have tried many things to install AMD graphic drivers on my laptop, But nothing seems to work, I ran this command on my laptop
lspci -nn | grep -E 'VGA|Display'
and the results are
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller [8086:0166] (rev 09) 01:00.0 Display controller : Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Sun XT [Radeon HD 8670A/8670M/8690M / R5 M330 / M430 / R7 M520] [1002:6660]
So I have a hybrid graphic cards or something, I tried this installation guide, but didn't work (even for the users in comment section),
It was very easy on windows, I would switch back to windows, But just wanted to ask here for last time. is there any solution available for installing AMD graphic drivers on Ubuntu 18.04 ?
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-driversthen
sudo apt updatedid you get any errors? Usually after the
sudo apt updateit will automatically install the drivers. It worked fine for me in 18.04. Have you also tried disabling Secure Boot in the BIOS before installing these drivers?
lshw -c videoYou should be able to see

[AMD/ATI] ....It seems like i have installed the amd drivers, But in Software & Updates->Additional Drivers it says , "No additional drivers available" and i have still the problem with normal boot (blank freezed purple screen), actually installing amd doesn't seem to change anything, anyway, thanks for your help :)
