When I open Blender through terminal it has no error messages, however when I open settings I am greeted by this message.


I am using an AMD Radeon R9 390X graphics card with the amdgpu driver. I know that my GPU is supported.

Is there anything that I can do?


You might need to install the proprietary AMDGPU-PRO drivers, or at least the OpenCL part of it. The quick fix is to install opencl-amd from AUR:

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/opencl-amd.git
cd opencl-amd
makepkg -s
sudo pacman -U opencl-amd-*-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

(You might have to downgrade libdrm for opencl-amd to work, see here.)

Note that Arch Linux is not officially supported by AMDGPU-PRO.
