I have just got an R9 280x AMD Gpu card. I have ubuntu 16.04 and when I run boincmgr I get the message "No usuable Gpu found".
I know that with ubutnu 16.04 it is difficult to get a driver for AMD cards especially the R9 280X ones.
But any help of any one was able to run Boinc with R9 280X on Ubuntu 16.04?
Your help would be really appreciated. I have been googling for two days and I am kinda stuck here.

In which case you can look for Open Source drivers. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/AMD for more on that.
Else you'll have to return to the previous Ubuntu (15.04) for support from AMD.
Please do not private message me for tech support. Use the forums for that. Tech PMs will be ignored.
