ubuntu graphics troublshooting

get current driver info:

sudo lshw -c video

current driver:

configuration: driver=amdgpu latency=0

replace AMDs driver with MESA:


So folloing the advice in the above link i first purged and removed then did

sudo lshw -c video

and it's still using the same driver, so i don't think it's actually using the mesa driver at all

after re-adding the packages it still shows the driver as:


seems the right driver is installed you can check with:

glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"

says mesa there

The mesa drivers are better but I am still getting graphical problems.
