Sapphire Nitro Radeon RX 480 OC on Linux Mint 18.1

I think I followed the procedure, but it has not been working for me.

 

I can work, but right now it acts as one display (I have dual monitors).

 

Here's what happens.

 

I tried to follow this script:

 

How-To Install/Uninstall AMD Radeon™ Software AMDGPU-PRO Driver for Linux® on an Ubuntu System but substituted the actual file name, amdgpu-pro-16.40-348864, but it produced an "os not supported" error

 

Then, I tried this one:

How-To Install/Uninstall AMD Radeon™ Software AMDGPU-PRO Driver for Linux® on an Ubuntu System  which gives me the 16.60-379184 driver, so I followed the script for that.

And now I get a little bit further, but while I can list the files that are extracted, and the install script is there, I cannot run it:

I tried it with sudo, same result. command not found, while the file is right there?

 

There is an extensive comment on the Linux Mint forums about this issue, from someone who has apparently made it work with an older driver (amdgpu-pro_16.30.3-315407.tar.xz), but I have not been able to find that one. One way or the other, I am stuck, and Cinnamon is "Running in Software Rendering Mode." My prior graphics card, which was an R7 performed just fine with the standard Radeon drivers, but could not reach the UHD resolutions of my current monitors.

 

Message was edited by: Rogier van Vlissingen Additional detail added on 3/20 about the older driver which seems to have worked for some.

 

And on 3/21 I tried the whole thing one more time, just in case... but I continue to get the "unsupported OS."
