Argh! I followed everything, and Ubuntu seems to indicate that Vulkan is now installed, but I can not run “vulkan-smoketest” (typed from Terminal, simply says “Unrecognized command”. “vulkaninfo” responds:
What am I missing? Any help is appreciated.
Yuo should already have vulkan-utils installed.
The problem was resolved long ago. The fix was to use nVidia’s own installer from the CLI.
I installed Ubuntu 18.04 on a Lenovo w520 and I followed the steps to get vulkan installed but it seems like the repository that housed vulkan no longer has it. Does anyone have a repository were I can download this from? I also couldn’t not find the nvidia driver but figured I could just use the 390 that comes with 18.04.
Had Errors at WoW (using Ubuntu & AMD) They were solved after additionally adding 386 drivers:
sudo apt install libvulkan1:i386 mesa-vulkan-drivers:i386
Thank you for the manual
