I installed amdgpu-pro on ubuntu 16.04. After reboot the screen resolution was low and unity not start. But I can open applications by right clicking and opening terminal. The speed was low too. The following is the output of gpu-manager.

Is the above configuration is correct for amdgpu-pro work properly?

graphics card (before installing amdgpu-pro):

Card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] RV515/M54 [Mobility Radeon X1400]
bus-ID: 01:00.0
chip-ID: 1002:7145
Display Server: X.Org 1.18.3
drivers: ati,radeon (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
Resolution: 1280x800@60.04hz
GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on ATI RV515
GLX Version: 2.1 Mesa 11.2.0 Direct Rendering: Yes



The output you pasted seems to suggest amdgpu is not loaded, and you have no DRI available. It seems also that previously you were using the radeon driver, not amdgpu. It seems you need to uninstall amdgpu-pro, as your graphics chip is not supported by it, being too old, and you must use the radeon drivers instead.

The amdgpu-pro installation appears to have blacklisted the radeon driver, which is required for your card.
