Davinci Resolve on AMD

So, I heard, that you need the amd pro drivers to run davinci resolve on linux. I followed dezigner’s tutorial(sorry, I can’t post my Topic if I include links, btw his name is just dezigner, and has only one topic, so no searching)
up to step 3, where he gives a link to the driver, however, the link is empty.

Could anyone please help? Thank you



pamac build amdgpu-pro-libgl

that doesn’t really work, because then the system won’t boot. if you look at the article i meant(dezigner has only one answer fo rone post please look it up) you can see, that he put the driver into a non root location and used a special command to launch the application

Ah yes… you use KDE right?


Workaround for using proprietary OpenGL

Curently (as of version 20.20_1098277-1) you can use proprietary OpenGL with workaround. You need to install amdgpu-pro-libglAUR only before launching application that requires it (DaVinci Resolve in most cases). Remove it, after your are done. Otherwise, your Display Manager (sddm, for example) could not be loaded at next system boot. In case you are already in such situation, just switch to the tty2 (Crtl+Alt+F2), login to the system and remove amdgpu-pro-libglAUR. Then run systemctl restart sddm.service , then switch to tty1.

Alternatively, you can extract the amdgpu-pro-libglAUR package to a non-root location, then launch the program that requires the drivers with the following environment variables:

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$PACKAGEPATH/opt/amdgpu-pro/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}" LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH="$PACKAGEPATH/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/" dri_driver="amdgpu" command

Hey there, using an AMD card on my desktop. I followed instructions on the ArchWiki, which state that

As of 20.45_1188099-5, you do not need to use workaround. Just launch your application with progl prefix, for example:

$ progl glmark2

However, despite having that version (latest) of the driver and following instructions, I cannot start DaVinci Resolve. Any fixes?
