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
My installation run smooth, but Dota 2 start nice but crash in the middle of the game. Maybe because I have 2 GPU one AMD and one Intel. I try to disable the Intel one. Let’s see.
Try download steam, Dota 2 and enable Vulkan support on the steam launcher.
Could someone help me figure this out? I’m running Linux Mint 19.2 (based on Ubuntu 18.04) on a laptop with an AMD A8 APU (which is listed on AMD’s website as being compatible with Vulkan). Lspci lists the graphics card as a Radeon R4/R5. I’ve got all the listed Vulkan packages installed. When I run vulkaninfo, I get:
Vulkan Instance Version: 1.1.70
ERROR: [Loader Message] Code 0 : /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libvulkan_intel.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32
ERROR: [Loader Message] Code 0 : /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libvulkan_radeon.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32
/build/vulkan-UL09PJ/vulkan-1.1.70+dfsg1/demos/vulkaninfo.c:2700: failed with VK_ERROR_INITIALIZATION_FAILED
Any ideas how I might proceed from here? Thank you!
