Install the AUR package.

For the value of shader-mode that works, please post
~/.Oolite/Logs/Latest.log on the Oolite forum, along with the highest shader-mode value that works for you.
This info will be used to determine the correct default shader setting for Oolite for your card/driver combination. This will then become part of the Oolite graphics configuration data in a later version.
