How do you install AMD GPU drivers for Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Desktop)? It only installs the archive and not the drivers.
Well I suppose you have installed the deb from amd.com, and looked at https://amdgpu-install.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
However, these instructions do not currently work, it seems. A lot of people around the interwebs have the same problem.
A couple of solutions have been presented, ie Unmet dependencies ubuntu 22.04 & amdgpu HIP support
But I myself haven't gotten any proposed solution to work. It seems we have to wait until amd at a random moment decides to actually fix this....
It works for me with an amd radeon rx580 on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. I use the 22.20.50204-1 version of the amd driver with linux-image-5.15.0-46-generic. I noticed this when I tried to fix the system when gui crashed on booting after installing the driver on a newer kernel version.
I chrooted from usb and removed all installed kernel versions as I knew there was trouble with newer kernels with another, a bit older, amd driver. Then I forgot to install the kernel version I had planned to install before i started the amdgpu-install in the chrooted system.
I used it with workstation profile, legacy opengl and vulkan pro and the installer installed the 5.15.0-46 kernel as dependency. All worked fine, modules were compiled and system is running with the new driver. I blocked the installation of newer kernel versions for the moment, but I will test newer ones from time to time ;-)
The solution that worked for me -
I installed the
sudo apt install gdebi
Then I went to and GPU drivers for linux
I downloaded the driver for Ubuntu 22.04. It is named
I installed it using -
sudo gdebi amdgpu-install
sudo apt install amdgpu
