Ryzen 3 2200 Debian 9: "Running in software rendering mode"


I have many problems to install Linux in the following setup:

AMD Ryzen 3 2200G

Asus A320m-k

Ballistix 8GB DDR4 2400 Mhz

WD Green SSD 240GB M.2

I tried installing Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Linux Mint and Fedora, but with none of these distros I could not even boot. I was able to install Debian successfully but now I can not solve the following problem:

Running in software rendering mode Cinnamon is currently running without video hardware acceleration and, as a result, can see much higher CPU usage than normal. There could be a problem with your drivers or some other problem. For the best experience, it is recommended that you only use this mode to solve problems.

Help me, please!

Hello I also just installed a new Asus motherboard and the AMD Ryzen  32200G processor. I am running linux mint 19 but can only boot up through the recovery mode and  then I only have a small image on my screen, Not able to change. I looked for the dirvers, but can only find the ones for Windows 10. If there are no drivers for linux, is it  possible to add a graphics card and if so are there any linux compatible graphics cards available? I am not a gamer, just an older user
