I've spent too much time trying to install AMD driver [Model R5 M335] on Ubuntu 16.04, I knew that it's' not possible to install flgrx since upgrading to 16.04. So, I installed AMDGPU-Pro but it didn't work and my GUI crashed [I found it doesn't support my card model] I read too many threads about that but I can't make it till now! Also I've installed Oibfa so? nothing happens, I don't know what to do after adding their PPA and update my system?

I found that amdgpu is installed after adding Oibfa but it doesn't control my graphics! here is the driver version from man amdgpu:

X Version 11 xf86-video-amdgpu 1.3.99 AMDGPU(4)

Also this the output of lspci -nn | grep -E 'VGA|Display':

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Sky Lake Integrated Graphics [8086:1916] (rev 07) 01:00.0

Display controller [0380]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Sun XT [Radeon HD 8670A/8670M/8690M / R5 M330] [1002:6660] (rev ff)

Could I switch them?

And here is glxinfo|egrep "OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer*" output:

OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center

OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) HD Graphics 520 (Skylake GT2)

Any help?
