It all started with me wanting to use
OpenGL 4 to play games on my ubuntu 16.04 laptop. I was running on intel integrated graphics and even if the processor is suppose to handle
OpenGL 4 I could not find a way to install it as intel drivers are already installed on 16.04.
However i quickly realized that I have another video adapter on my laptop :
[AMD/ATI] Mars XTX [Radeon HD 8790M]
So I tried to make this one work by installing AMD proprietary drivers (
fglrx). I activated them in the additional driver setting but I cannot for some reason switch from intel graphic to my AMD GPU.
I looked everywhere and trying a bit everything. Using
amdconfig gives me:
no suported adapter detected.
I am running out of ideas and would appreciate any advise. P.S: I am no expert at ubuntu.
EDIT: AMD proprietary driver do not work on ubuntu 16.04. I would therefore try to get OpenGL 4 to work on intel graphics. The only information I got as for driver is that it is i915. The laptop has a i7-4810MQ which runs Intel® HD Graphics 4600. This is suppose to run openGL 4.3 ....
