Setting up Freesync in Pop!_OS

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I just made the switch from windows to linux, and I'm trying to setup freesync in linux. My distro is Pop!_OS. I have gotten freesync to work on windows, so I know it's not a hardware problem. I'm fairly certain that I am using the amdgpu drivers needed for this to work. My problem is that I can't get Pop!_OS to tell me if freesync is running or not. I've been following the directions from the amd website, which can be found here, and I can't find the correct field after I run this command: "DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --prop". I'm supposed to be looking for anything that says "freesync", but the only thing I can find is "tearfree" which I don't think is the right thing.

 

I thought maybe I should just try enabling freesync anyway, so I ran the command "DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output DisplayPort-1 --set "freesync" 1", but then I get an error. The error shows up like this:image.png.25c6d405aa219606c25514c9a6bb2d28.png

But when the terminal listed my displays earlier, "displayport-1" was apart of that list. So not only am I unable to find the correct field for freesync, I am also unable to change the "freesync field."

 

Any help with these errors would be appreciated.

After trying this, I get a warning.

Any idea what that's about?

gvfs is a gnome thing and unrelated, you can ignore that.
