Yes, it seems like AMD Download page only has drivers for Windows 10.

I would either go and ask at a Ubuntu Forum like this one which might help concerning the same Laptop processor:

also this thread which shows which Linux OS works with your processor:

Or ask at one of the leading Linux Websites:


Thanks, but my laptop is using Processors with graphics,rather than hybrid graphics.

I have tried many linux distributions, but none of them work normally


What you need to do is upgrade your kernel version to 5.6 +, i've managed to make kubuntu 20.04 and 20.10 work with kernel 5.8.


so... i somehow managed to update my kernel to the latest one and now i can get my external monitors to work but not the laptop display...  when i do look at it, the AMD hardware isn't recognized and i've not been able to install the amdgpu 21.10 drivers - it seems that AMD itself hasn't updated their drivers to work with the latest version of ubuntu as well.

so the combination of an older kernel and no support YET from AMD for the linux drivers means that whilst you can make it work you proabably shouldn't

It seems that the next iteration in April will support hybrid graphics in AMD GPU's better, so till then, my 4600H/1650 GTS laptop is just an Nvidia device at this point.

(my dreams of dual monitors with my laptop display in the center, just like in windows is on hold)

total newbie with ubuntu so this is what most likely keeps me from getting it going.
