I'm sorry if this duplicate question is not allowed on stack exchange. I posted this in ask Ubuntu originally, but I figured I'd get a answer here.

I'm trying to get back into Bender. The last time I used it was in Windows 7 during 2.49b stage. I'm having issues since I'm now using Ubuntu MATE 18.04.1 as my primary OS.

I seem to be unable to set 'Cycles Compute Device' to anything at all. The option is highlighted and reads "None". I want to be able to render with the GPU. How do I do this?

I learned I may not have OpenCL installed. I have driver ppa from https://launchpad.net/~oibaf

If I have this driver can I follow this example to install the opencl packages from amdgpu-pro drivers without messing up my current drivers?

Thanks for the input
