Enable Arch/Manjaro opencl-amd in darktable

So… no good. worked out I needed ocl-icd by reading the Arch Wiki, but same result still.
I found some guides for adding the opencl bits from the amdgpu-pro package to the opensource driver in Ubuntu and Fedora, but not Manjaro.

So yeah. Very happy now :grin:


You could’ve just changed your user name…

I couldn’t see a way to change it. Display name yes, but not login/username? oh well :laughing:


Voce pode usar o Rocm ou AMDGPU-PRO

Nice reference, thank you!

@darix that is no longer required with the opencl package from the AUR it seems.
