Option to install proprietary drivers are missing

I’m on an Acer Aspire 5 and after installing I don’t see an option in the hardware configuration to install proprietary drivers for my AMD GPU. I have another laptop that has these options. I posted a screenshot below of the window in question. There’s usually an option for Auto-Install proprietary drivers which is no longer there

I’ve also posted my system info. Not sure what I’m missing here.

AMD GPU’s don’t really have any proprietary drivers anymore.

That’s only if you need amdgpu-pro, which you probably do not.
And those are in the AUR if you decide to try it out (not recommended).


Sounds good to me, thanks for the response!
