Radeon HD 5770 driver/screen resolution pains


On a rusty bucket of bolts and new to Linux, what could possibly go wrong? Sorry if I’m missing something very obvious here. Latest version of Manjaro with KDE, mhwd only suggests and installs video-linux and while the performance is fairly snappy I can’t set my screen resolution above 1024x768, which makes for an unpleasant experience.
