I'm using Linux Manjaro 0.8.13 on my laptop and want to install proprietary drivers. Here is what i have:

efog# lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Thames [Radeon HD 7500M/7600M Series] (rev ff)

At first, i've tried to install drivers using "Manjaro Settings Manager" and "Hardware detection". Right-clicked on "video-catalyst", then "Install", rebooted and got black screen without X.

Then i've tried to install it manually. At first i downgraded my xorg-server to version 1.15. Here is all what i did then:

yaourt catalyst-test #conflict with mhwd
yaourt catalyst-total-pxp #conflict with mhwd
sudo mhwd -i pci video-catalyst #ok, but black screen

Then i've removed mhwd with -Rdd option and tried to install catalyst again. I got this:

Building fglrx module for 3.18.15-1-MANJARO kernel ...

---------------- I/O BUG ---------------------------------------
There's a bug in fglrx found by lano1106 which generates
great amount of unneeded I/O operations

To activate workaround enable systemd service:
systemctl enable temp-links-catalyst
systemctl start temp-links-catalyst

Help me please, what i have to do? I'm totally new to Arch Linux, was using Ubuntu before.

I have only 1 assumption:

efog# uname -a               
Linux efog-pc 3.18.14-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon May 25 01:26:15 UTC 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux

And in .log file i see version 3.18.15-1. But i really dont know what to do.

I think that now the recommended one for AMD graphics is the AMDGPU-PRO and not the Catalyst.

If the whmd can't find the proper ones, you can still donwload the Linux ones by searching you model at the webpage: https://www.amd.com/en/support.
