Cannot change the resolution on my display

Hi guys, I’m very new at manjaro.So I’m having a big issue with my old GPU (AMD ATI Radeon R7 260X/360 ). I been reading about this issue but i cant find the way to add my resolution to the display settings. I do all the steps (xrandr --newmode &&…)

Screen 0: minimum 16 x 16, current 1024 x 768, maximum 32767 x 32767
XWAYLAND0 connected primary 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
   1024x768      59.68*+
   800x600       59.86  
   640x480       59.38  
   320x240       59.52  
   720x480       59.71  
   640x400       59.20  
   320x200       58.96  
   1024x576      59.58  
   864x486       59.45  
   720x400       59.55  
   640x350       58.91

1600x900_60.00 59.95
1600_900_60 60.00

Are you using AMDGPU really? or ATI/radeon ?
mhwd -li
inxi -G

For example if using ATI but resolution seems unsupported please see:

mhwd -li give me this

Installed PCI configs:
                  NAME               VERSION          FREEDRIVER           TYPE

Warning: No installed USB configs!

the second one give me this.

Thanks for replying so fast! I will read more about what you told me! Anyway I don’t have this issue with my other boot (windows 10) so I figure that it has to be some solution.

You are using radeon (makes sense - AMDGPU is only for newer cards)
So that link above should be helpful

After seeing the link below i make a bash script for my problem and some how work. But I have to run it every time I log in. After a week I install something call “gtk2” and magically all work out, now my resolution (and others) are available in my config GUI and I don’t have to run anything in order to my resolution be the right one. I would like to know what happen in order to understand. Thanks

Do you mean package gtk2 ?

It has a number of dependencies - so while it could be the package itself it could be one of those, such as libxrandr.
Something like this will show us the last 20 things newly installed

grep -i installed -w reinstalled /var/log/pacman.log | tail -n 20

This is the output of that command

After a month it happen all over again. I’m kind of frustrated about this. I guess that some update change something about gtk2. Now I don’t know what to do. Any help will be very appreciated
