Re: [SOLVED] HP 255 No wireless connection option

Post by Rob67 »

Hi again Lord Boltar.
I've re-downloaded the files and seem to have done something right as I can now see that the amdgpu-pro-install file now has a script/content in it.
I managed to open a terminal while inside that folder and ran the command.
It has responded with "Unsupported OS" for both files (amdgpu-pro-install and amdgpu-install)

Just to be clear. Is this the reason why the laptop is still in software rendering mode?

Thanks for responding Deepakdeshp.

So it looks like I can't use those Drivers.
Do I have any other options to make this laptop totally compatible with Mint?
