How to install amdgpu-pro

only for my steam games so every thing runs smooth

So …

You have an AMDGPU card … you play games … and you just ‘want the best experience’ and you think those things will give it to you?

I rather doubt thats the case.

I suggest you take a read of this recent post … amdgpu-pro is unsupported and generally performs worse … but if there are components of it you want to add to amdgpu … you can install those packages from the AUR.


Ok thanks i will do that

but in the mean time can u please just tell me how to install the man redean software

or u are saying i dont need it ?

im new

AMD is opensource.
You should already be running the correct drivers.

If you want to check … take a look in mhwd or Manjaro Settings Manager.

Take @cscs advice, you really don’t need those things for gaming.
Those files are archives, if you extract them you’ll probably find readme files.

What are you trying to do with gparted?

I am on XFC now its much faster for me to work around
