Installing Vulkan on Ubuntu

Hello everyone,

I'm currently struggling with getting Artifact (a Valve game) to run on my laptop. I also suck at using Ubuntu.

Essentially, Artifact only runs on Vulkan - as opposed to the rest of my steam library, and when I try to open it, I get the following error message:

"Failed to initialize Vulkan.

Please make sure your driver and GPU support Vulkan."

Can someone please help me install Vulkan and get this game to run?


I'm using a Lenovo Ideapad 720s with an i5-7200U, so graphics should be Intel HD 620 (right?).

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04.1.

Please keep in mind that I really, really don't know how to use Ubuntu. I just installed it cause I couldn't stand Windows 10.

I have been told that I just need to get mesa something something. As far as I can tell, I have done that.

There is a good chance I may have messed something up, but I have no clue, so if you have any ideas,

please explain them like you would to someone who has never used anything other than Windows, cause that basically applies to me.

Scratch that, you may not have a GFX card that is supported fully



OpenGL and DirectX only


EDIT again...

I may be wrong, I'm getting conflicting info

maybe it is supported: https://www.geeks3d.com/20180217/intel-hd-graphics-driver-v4944-opengl-4-5-vulkan-1-0-66/


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds
