After downloading the most recent driver for my graphics card from the AMD website, it seems impossible to install the driver.
The easiest, most logical way, would be to click on the file and to run it with the terminal but that doesn't work. Dragging the file inside the terminal doesn't work either and changing the permission under the properties doesn't change anything as well.
The file is a
*.run, so after searching online I figured I need to open the terminal and do the following:
cd /home/user/Downloads chmod +x some-app.run ./some-app.run
(Note: the above assumes the file is called
some-app.run, and is in the folder
/home/user/Downloads. You will need to modify these instructions to fit your situation.)
Doing this gives the following error message in the terminal:
error: Detected X Server version 'XServer 1.19.5_64a' is not supported. Supported versions are X.Org 6.9 or later, up to XServer 1.10 (default:v2:x86_64:lib32:XServer 1.19.5_64a:none:4.13.0-26-generic:) Installation will not proceed.
Should I retrograde this Xserver thingy to a 1.10 version so I can install the newest video driver, or is there a simpler way that works?
