    Your title says you are running Ubuntu Core 22. This is the only version that uses a single digit version. The body says 22.04. Please EDIT the question the clarify the version.

    AMD graphics work with open-source drivers, there's absolutely no need for any user action. Sep 27, 2022 at 8:34

    Does this answer your question? Ubuntu 14.04.5/16.04 and newer on AMD graphics

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....

  • Thank you. I'll just wait for the new instructions to come out in the meantime and will try your suggested method. Ill update you all on everything that happens. Once again, thank you so much for the help. This explains a lot. Sep 27, 2022 at 22:48
  • worked for me... see my own answer askubuntu.com/questions/1433335/…

  • AMDGPU just simply doesn't work, has not worked for years (if it ever did...) and they don't care enough about you to provide working drivers because they spend all their time on developing solutions for the only OS that can get a computer virus. I am posting aggressively on this to finally just call them out because I paid over $300 for a GPU to play a single Steam game on Linux, got it working once after days of effort, and 2 days later it all broke with a security software update. Just RMA your ATI card and get a refurb NVidia because they at least provide drivers.

I ended up having to downgrade to Ubuntu 20.04. AMD drivers work fine with that, could not get them to work in 22.04 no matter what I tried.

  • That's maybe a half-decade ago. Why would anyone want to spend money for this? AMD claims it works, and even throws in a HWE kernel option, but clearly hasn't done any work to update their soft in forever.

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 gdebi package

sudo apt install gdebi

Then I went to and GPU drivers for linux

I downloaded the driver for Ubuntu 22.04. It is named amdgpu-install

I installed it using -

sudo gdebi amdgpu-install


sudo apt install amdgpu
  • Your solution isn't even close to usable. Even on a fresh OS install of 22.04.
