Title: AMD A10-5745M APU Radeon HD Graphics
Post by: Brotherred on December 24, 2019, 06:43:44 pm
Hello all, is there anyway I can get the propitiatory drivers for my system?
CPU~Quad core AMD A10-5745M APU with Radeon HD Graphics (-MCP-) speed/max~1790/2100 MHz Kernel~4.15.0-72-generic x86_64 Up~3:03 Mem~3153.8/5165.7MB HDD~500.1GB(31.3% used) Procs~212 Client~Shell inxi~2.3.56

I am getting more into Steam enabled games that install but will not run. Like War Robots, World of Tanks, and Mechwarrier online will probably be the same...


Regards

Nope, AMD dropped proprietary graphics drivers for that card after 14.04 .. they consider it legacy, so it's not covered by amdgpu, an fglrx doesn't work in anything after 14.04 :(

Hi brothered,

I am sorry to tell you that your thank you to PCNetSpec's reply is a little late now.

Mr. Greaves, our Peppermint forum and Peppermint Distro leader, passed away on Jan. 14th 2020.

I replied there. But PCnetSpec is not a person, but a pseudonym for the selected Hero Mod, as the linked article briefly mentioned.

Forgive me but you did not understand correctly,

PCNetSpec Is, was, and will always be a real person to us, not a psuedonym, but will always be Mr. Mark Greaves. He was the one and only "Hero Mod" in the Peppermint Fourms

"PCNetSpec". is/was, the name chosen here on line by Mr. Greaves, for his own personal use, Just as your name is "Brothered", here in the forums, "PCNetSpec" was the name used by MR. Greaves and only by Mr. Greaves, NO one else has used it or will ever use it since he passed away.

PCNetSpec and Mr. Mark Greaves were one and the same.
