I didn't know that Ubuntu was using AMDGPU by default and I've installed fglrx. It's already removed now.

I want to reactivate AMDGPU, how can I do that?

lspci -nn | grep VGA

Graphics Card

lsmod | grep amd



If your graphics card is supported you may wish to consider AMDGPU-PRO. You can find the latest 16.60 version of the driver here [link] (http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDGPU-PRO-Driver-for-Linux-Release-Notes.aspx)

    @George JMKõ edited his answer and fixed the broken link with an updated link to the latest version of AMDGPU-PRO (version 16.60) which is now out of beta. – karel Jan 31 '17 at 7:00
  • This card is NOT supported. – Pilot6 Jan 31 '17 at 15:48

The opensource amdgpu driver is for GCN+ class hardware only. Your GPU is a VLIW-based HD 5000 series that works with the radeon driver out of the box, and is NOT supported by the amdgpu driver.
