Is there anything that can be done to prevent games from placing config files directly in my home directory?

I have several games installed from Steam that place their configs directly in my home directory: Gonner 2, Runescape, Duck Game, SEGA Mega Drive Classics, Wizard of Legend, etc. It's not a big deal, but it does clutter up my home directory which I'd rather avoid. Just wondering if anyone knows how to fix or prevent this, thanks!

Nvidia 470 (latest Ubuntu build) - Doesn't work with FreeSync?

Hi,

As per subject just installed the latest 470 from Ubuntu repos (I believe it was the latest build - today's).

Looks like all the titles which run full screen when freesync is enabled do display a black bar on top or don't even work (i.e. DotA2 does display such bar and Warframe doesn't).

Am I the only one?

Running on 3080 Ti, kernel Ubuntu 20.04 HWE.

CSGO not launching after the Riptide intro on ZorinOS

When I click "Play" it starts in a windowed mode the Riptide intro, then black screen (still windowed). Can't press ESC or Space to skip the intro either.

I'm on ZorinOS 16, RTX2060S Ryzen 5 3600X. Others games work fine, even those with Proton (Age of Empires II, Mordhau).

Cant install some windows only games

Normally, I can install any game on steam after enabling steam play for all other titles. Now I can not install them. The list includes Among us, Deceit and kovaak2. These all are games that I have previously installed, played and deleted. If anyone can test installing the games above and let me know. Hopefully this is just a bug that gets fixed soon.

DualShock 4 not working

I wanted to use my DS4 with a game, but when I plugged it in it wasn't working.

It didn't show up when I ran lsusb :

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

I tried to reboot and use a different kernel. i normally use the zen kernel on Arch Linux. I tried using the LTS kernel but I had the same problem.

I tried running udevadm monitor --environment --udev before plugging in the controller but there was no output.

I know that the controller works because I can use it with my PS4, my PSVita and my laptop over bluetooth, but my desktop doesn't have a bluetooth card, so that's not much help. I tried using every usb port on my computer. I know that they all work because I tried using them for other devices as well and they worked. I even tried using a different DS4 but that had the same result.

I'd appreciate any help

Terminal Velocity's Linux versions added to Luxtorpeda for Steam

Context 1:

Terminal Velocity is a simulation video game originally developed by Terminal Reality and published by 3D Realms for DOS and Windows 95 and MacSoft for Mac OS. It is an arcade-style flight combat game, with simpler game controls and physics than flight simulators. It is known for its fast, high-energy action sequences, compared to flight simulators of the time.

Context 2:

[Luxtorpeda is a] Steam Play compatibility tool to run games using native Linux engines.

News:

u/d10sfan has added terminal-recall engine re-implementation for Terminal Velocity to Luxtorpeda repo. Thanks to that, native Linux versions of the games can be played as Steam games.

Installation:

Follow "Installation (using tarball)" method, pick "Luxtorpeda (Runtime)" as Steam Play compatibility tool for the game, install and launch the game.

Information:

Need to configure the paths to the POD files using the in-game configuration menu for the first time.

Proton and Nvidia On Demand: Not using the correct GPU?

Hello all, something has been bugging me out lately:

I have a hybrid Laptop, with an Ryzen 5 CPU (which has Vega Integrated Graphics) and a Geforce 1050. I am using Linux Mint and the "Nvidia On Demand" option on PRIME, which I like, as it tends to get noisy when using the discrete GPU.

Recently, I started to play Total War Fall of The Samurai (using Proton). To start the game, insuring the use of the discrete GPU, I start the game through the applications menu, right clicking on the icon and selecting "Run with Nvidia GPU". However, in the game's options menu, the card being used is show as "Radeon Vega Graphics" (the integrated one).

Now, I am kind of dubious: which GPU is being used? Nvidia or Vega? Does the "Nvidia On Demand" does not work with Proton? There is any way to make a "Steam - Proton" game to use the correct GPU?

Custom/multiple HID Devices in Steam Proton (Arduino Jostick Controllers)

So, I recently switched to Linux and trying it out as a replacement for Windows. With Proton and very good support from most Steam games, it seems like a viable option.

However, I also like to Sim Race and made my own custom shifter and handbrake using Arduino. The board has the Joystick library on it, so OSes like Windows detect it as a regular HID input device. It works fine in Windows, but I'm not sure how to enable this using Proton translated Steam games like Dirt Rally 2.0.

How does one go about adding support for custom devices like these?

Has anyone tried BE on native linux games?

Supposedly, there has been a native BE client for native Linux games for a long time now. The problem and place where AC is most prevalent are non-native games of course and that's being addressed now.

Has anyone tried such a game though? Do they require kernel modules or something? I'd imagine Windows games would require the same BE native parts as native games, just that they'd work with WINE in the future.

A previously working Steam game immediately crashes after reinstalling the OS

Hi,

Recently I reinstalled my system and I'm having a problem with a game (Tropico 3 Absolute Power). Every other game runs how they used to be but not this one. When I check what's happening on terminal I see this error:

ERROR: ld.so: object '~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/gameoverlayrenderer.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object '~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_64/gameoverlayrenderer.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64): ignored.

Though as I learned this happens with every game and is actually not an error.

What could be the problem here? (I have Nvidia by the way.)

Garuda steam games not launching from NTFS drives help

I have switched over from windows to garuda Linux, and originally had a lot of issues with steam games not launching from my other NTFS drives. After a lot of searching, what seemed to finally work for me was follow the instructions from another post to install the gnome disks package for mounting my internal storage drives. Under mount options, instead of auto at the bottom, i typed in NTFS. After this, steam was able to launch games with the proton compatibility layer. This may or may not help someone out there, and if this post sparks a conversation, that's good too.

Unable to launch Windows game with Wine after installation

I am trying to play Growtopia on my Arch Linux. The installation goes fine, but after that the game itself won't launch. This is the log from PlayOnLinux: https://pastebin.com/QFnMMwHQ

Is there a way to get a game launched through Lutrius to recognize my DS4 controller?

So I'm trying to play Diablo 2 Resurrected through Battle.net launched through Lutrius. It's working great, and I can even play with the controller when it's plugged in via USB. However it doesn't seem to recognize the controller when it's connected over bluetooth.

The controller works fine over bluetooth when playing games through steam/proton.

Is there anything I am missing, or anything I can try?

Calling all Tarkov gamers.

Hello Linux Gaming community!

A user on the Escape from Tarkov forums made a post requesting that Battlestate Games enable anti-cheat support for Mac/Linux.

There have been videos of users playing Tarkov through wine before the implementation of anti-cheat so we know that it is possible to run the game (unless patches since have borked it).

If you want to try get Tarkov supported under Wine then please head over to the forum I have linked below to show Battlestate Games that we are here and we want to play on our OS of choice! Please keep comments respectful, we want to show developers that we exist and we want to play their games.

If you currently don't play Tarkov and you still want to support the cause or you do play Tarkov but want to run it under wine, please head over to the forums and make your voices heard.

Thanks!

cant launch steam game

im on arch and i have just installed steam and the witcher 3. i selected the latest stable proton and tried to launch. upon starting the game, it says running for like 2 seconds and the it stops. I have the drivers ,the vulkan stuff are there any logs i can read to see why this is happening. i only use a wm so there is a chance that i forgot to install something but at least a hint from some kind of error message would be nice I have played this on linux on less powerful machines with no problem, so the hardware not being able to handle it is not an issue.

So long Microsoft. Linux becomes the logical next step in curbing corporate greed and their hold on gaming (probably)

Anyone else hyped for the coming couple years? Not only is switching to linux a viable option for the everyday gamer, but it seems like everything is falling into place for it to become a leading OS.

  1. AMD got their s*** together and became a competitor
  2. Valve made proton a beast of a program
  3. Linux is becoming easier and easier to configure, and most distros' GUI are completely viable alternatives to using the CLI if you're into that kind of thing
  4. Open-source anti-cheat is a thing now apparently (Riot... pls)

And right when the timing was right, windows decided to announce Windows 11 which appears to just be a port of windows 10 with "better" visuals and more advertiser-tracking capabilities. Not to mention that people are becoming more and more aware of how bad the tracking issue actually is, and in researching it are finding out that windows isn't helping in the slightest... right when they have to decide if upgrading their windows license to a new version is worth it...

If someone asked me 3 years ago if I'd be gaming on linux (or even using it) in 2021, I'd say fat chance. However, nowadays if someone asked me how easy it would be to get into it, I can tell them with absolute certainty that installing linux can actually be easier than installing windows, and on top of keeping you just a little bit safer from swiper the data sniper, can run most games just the same as windows with an AMD system. You have an nvidia card? safe graphics install, boot in recovery mode and apt install the nvidia driver you need.

EZ PZ. later windows.

Is there a way to use your phone as VR headset?

I've been recently searching for using phone as vr headset and found Vridge(Riftcat) or Trinus VR, but couldn't find anything related to linux.

I tried running Riftcat with wine but setup window didn't even show. Trinus VR worked, but it couldn't switch view port to other windows. I was able to see Trinus configuration window and only it. It didn't detected software running on wine either.

Are there any alternatives for those programs? If not, are there tweaks for those programs to run them properly? Even if that is not an option, are there any projects that use arduino or raspberry pi for vr on pc?

Steam not connecting to the network through Wine or Lutris

Ahoy ahoy friends.

Currently i'm running Civilization V fine with Lutris, but unfortuantely i got heavy issues with Steam at all using Lutris.

Always when i open up Steam it is not able to connect to the friends network, so i'm always offline.

Is there a way to fix that? I've found some older related topics, but these advices won't work anymore in 2021.

I hope someone might help! Thanks in advance.

how bad is it to play games of internal SSD with linux OS runnig of USB

to be frank, origin -the shitty EA launcher- couldn't work on my windows pc and i'm sick of troubleshooting it. the alternative is to try linux, and because i'm somewhat low on storage i can't do partition. so i was thinking about installing linux on usb and then download the game i want on my internal ssd -nvme2.0-.

my question is: how much will running live OS effect performance?, keep in mind my game is fully installed in my internal ssd.

  1. are there other thing i should watch out for since windows is also installed in that same ssd.

i would appreciate any kind of deep technical explanation. thanks in advance

Basilisk V3 issues under Linux (openSUSE), anyone?

So my old Logitech broke (again) so I switched to Razer and the Basilisk was affordable and looked cool.

But I have issues where it stops clicking - meaning I can move the mouse around but cannot click windows borders. It sometimes works inside a Firefox window though where I can select the text, type an address and all. It happened on both KDE and XFCE (openSuse flavor). I'll test further this evening on a Windows computer to make sure it's not a defective mouse.

I thought about some QT bug, but XFCE does the same. X11 and Wayland both does it. Although it took longer before Wayland started having issues. Plugging another mouse (Roccat) worked but only if the Razer was unplugged, else it would do the same thing.

Does anyone here have that mouse? What distro/DE do you use? Any issues?

I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this, dmesg and journalctl looks okay..

Can I trust linux with a thicc system?

Hey y'all, just finished the greatest computer-related purchase of my life. I've been daily driving Ubuntu and gaming every now and then with Proton on an older system and I've had a great experience overall, really no problems other than anti-cheat games which was expected. That being said, the PC I've been using is kind of old, it has a ryzen 5 1600 processor and a gtx 1060 graphics card. No fancy fans, big bulky motherboards or whatever.

My question is, can I just plug my new RTX 3080-liquid-cooling-blah-blah PC, flash it with Pop_OS! or Ubuntu or whatever, and just start playing? Do I need software to set the fan curve, or to be able to use the GPU to its full extent or anything like that? I recently built a thicc (windows) system with my GF and when we booted into it, there were a lot of proprietary tools to set settings and create profiles and whatnot. I'm just wondering if I'll be having problems playing games with a super strong system. Thanks

Completely switching to Linux: Can I get away with this?

I use Windows on my gaming desktop that I've been using and continually upgrading for over 3 years. I've been daily driving Linux (Manjaro) on my cheap school laptop for years, and at this point I'm not afraid of anything technical. Because anti-cheats work on Proton now (until developers decide to turn them on), I've been thinking of completely switching to Linux, and if I need anything for Windows, my Ryzen 7 5800X is probably good enough for a QEMU VM. Here are the only things that I'm concerned about:

  • I've dealt with finnicky Nvidia drivers before (especially on my old Thinkpad that used Optimus). How well will my RTX 3060 Ti work on Linux? Should I stick with Xorg instead of using Wayland?
  • For things like Oculus (I'm planning on using Air Link to play Rift games on Quest), is there any way to run these games in a VM with GPU Passthrough (keep in mind that my CPU isn't integrated)? I simply refuse to repurchase my Steam games on the Oculus store as I refuse to create a Facebook account. Dual booting also isn't out of the question.
  • Game Pass can also be done through Windows but xCloud should be good enough. Hopefully Game Pass comes to Steam soon with the Deck on the horizon.

Again, I can do any other Windows-exclusive stuff in a VM.

Edit: clarified Oculus stuff

EVE Online mouse issue with GE

hey everyone,

GE works beautifully with Eve online apart from 1 particular case where the mouse does not seem to be detected properly in particular cases.

In my case it is when I resize windows by dragging the bottom or right side of the window (left and top work fine). The mouse just jumps to the edge of the screen giving me a massive window and it's not possible to reduce it past a particular point.

Others have also reported issues with no detection of right-clicks apparently but I only have this issue when I right-click something at the top of the screen/ingame overview.

Does anyone have any ideas for launch options I could use that somehow lets me detect the mouse more...raw I guess?

I use 6.16-GE-1

Here is the link on protondb so you can see other people's comments on the issue: https://www.protondb.com/app/8500

Thanks to valve soon the Linux will be a decent OS for gaming. With that being said the market share will be increased so the OS will be more vulnerable to hackers and malware attacks as it is on Windows based OS. Am I right about that thought?

Has anyone checked Unreal in Lutris? It just works for me with Wine-TKG 6.17

So, I checked Fortnite yesterday, which doesn't work for the moment, and since i had EGS installed in Lutris I decided to check the compatibility of Unreal after a LONG time in Wine and eveything just works. Levels, blueprints, models, animations, enemies, AI. I haven't checked the marketplace but the engine itself seems to work amazingly well, which to me is really surprising. Can anyone confirm if this is actually valid or I am just lucky so far?

Tweaking proton for a new game

Hi,

I was trying Captain of Industry with proton 6.3-6, and it is basically working. I have a problem with changing tasks, because once switched to a different task the Captain of Industry windows stays black.

Furthermore, I already had this problem with another game where I was not able to solve it.

Has anyone an idea, on how to tweak the proton prefix, or knows about a forum, etc. on how to tweak things?

Anti cheats

So the last 2 days were awesome for linux gaming. But i have to ask when ? I read that it is optin feature dor both easy anti cheat and battle eye. Did any of you saw anything that indicates that the developers will activate it in any popular game ? I sent ticket asking for Apex and For Honor but only bots answered. They said that currently linux is not supported ...

Do the games need to be written again in order to work on linux

not talking about proton/wine,

im no game developer, but if games are written in c++ and use some windows libraries/frameworks to function, if they were to create a native version for linux, would that mean to completely rewrite the whole code or only patch some code ?

Stardew Valley with mods working on Linux Mint 20/Manjaro

Finally got it working after a couple of days of tinkering. It was so difficult because of the lack of helpful resources on this subject. From what I have learned Stardew Valley Mods work perfectly on PopOS and Ubuntu. When i tried to load mods on Mint and Manjaro, SMAPI couldnt find libgdiplus.so which mono uses to load pngs. After awhile i figured Id use lutris to load the StardewModdingAPI.bin.x86_64 executable and with gameoverlayrenderer.so preloaded. It worked but it still wont launch from Steam directly. This workaround is the best i could figure out.

Boomer looking for a 2 players game :)

Hey!

I am searching for a simple game with 2 players mode for me and my girlfriend :)

The last game I was playing on my PC was Max Payne 2 a few years ago... I am no longer in the loop, I do not know any new games or the current Linux gaming state. Now I have only one machine with Linux. Can you recommend me something? It does not have to be a new game, it can be something old. For now, I do not have any controllers, only a keyboard. We just want to have some fun :)

My specs: Fedora 34 Intel i5-7200U Intel HD Graphics 620 8 GB RAM

Thanks in advance!

I have Dualboot on one drive and games for Windows on a second drive - can I access the games from my linux distro?

Hey guys,
Im using a dualboot with endeavour and Windows. The first I mainly use for studying and university, second for gaming. After recent problems with bullshit windows I think about also switching to Linux for gaming. The problem is that all my games are installed on a NTFS disk and I dont have place on my partition disk for all these games. To summarize:
First disk: 500GB with Windows and Linux dualboot
Second disk: 1TB with Steam + Games, Rockstar Launcher + Games

Whats my best chance to play from Linux without reinstalling all the games (~500GB) or deleting Windows?

what should my course of acction be to play this game? as on the protondb site it says that its platinum so whats the deal?

Any method to get gaming VPN's working under Linux?

I'm in China and cannot connect to most international game servers without one of these so-called gaming VPN's. I can use my regular VPN but it doesn't deal with games so well (it's playable, barely)

Without VPN it's a crapshoot on whether it'll connect at all and if it does it's almost unplayable. This is due to the Chinese great firewall inspecting traffic and slowing my connection down but not consistently so it's lost packets and variable ping all the time.

So under Windows I use Leigod or UU... but all of these only support Windows/Mac and will not work under WINE.

As the title reads. I had this problem before when I first installed arch but that was solved by installing lib32-nvidia-utils. Now it just came back for some reason. I have tried reinstalling lib32-nvidia-utils and running pacman -Syyuu and rebooting after that, but it just doesn't work. I have no idea how this happened.

An argument in favor of a Proton only approach

I've been linux only gaming for a few years now, and when the rumors with the Steam Deck started, that Valve was pushing for a Proton only approach, as opposed to developing Linux ports, I was quite disappointed.

But I've thought about this and would like to share 3 data points.

This summer, I went back and tried to play some old games that I liked. In Hollow Knight, there's a room in the Crystal Peaks that goes haywire the moment you walk in. You can't make sense of anything in there. Granted this seems to be a bug in the Linux port, but its been several months and it still hasn't been fixed.

I went back and also tried to play Guacamelee! Gold Edition, and the game first of all cannot quit. After exiting, you need to hit "Stop" in Steam to get the game to quit. But more so, it crashes if you try to enter the third area (the Tree) in the game.

Another action game that I like has this horrible input lag which basically makes the game unplayable.

I don't know if my issues are distro specific (Manjaro) or if simply new updates to Linux and the lack of updates to the games (the latter two haven't been updated in a long while) has created an incompatiblity. But the three games are all unplayable right now.

But if I play the Windows specific versions using Proton/Wine the games run fine. No input lag, no crashes, no weird glitches. I don't know why or how, maybe game developers do a better job of keeping the windows versions up to date, and Proton/Wine do a good job of updating along with current versions of Linux.

Maybe somebody more technical can comment on my experience, maybe its bad luck, I don't know. Or maybe the problem is on my end (weird app, distro I"m using, I don't know), but after these experiences, I am beginning to see the benefit of a Proton only approach.

Multiple monitor mouse jumps out of gaming window

Hi folks. I'm trying to play ARK on Linux on my triple monitor setup (game window only on center monitor). I'm running XUbuntu 21.04 with a 3060ti. The center monitor is set as my primary monitor. Whenever I open my inventory or the game menu my mouse immediately jumps to the center of my right monitor. I then have to drag it back into the ARK game window.

I have tried setting "click to focus" and "focus follows mouse" (the former works better) but the problem is the same. When I disable the right hand monitor and open the inventory the mouse jumps to the right hand edge of the game window. Not as bad an issue but still odd.

I've searched and read a number of posts but nothing addresses this issue. All suggestions welcome.

Thanks.

I am using nvidia 470.74-2 and I have a file called /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf which has the line blacklist nouveau on it. Running lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 vga gives me

Is there a way to force Steam to use WINE and also place it in the folder where WINE would put it?

Hey all, I have a pretty unique issue, so I figured this warranted a thread.

I'm trying to escape from the hellscape that is Windows, but I play a lot of Microsoft Flight Simulator. The base game runs just fine but the really study level aircraft are all made by third party developers, which come packaged in .exe files.

These .exe files just say "Fuck it" and take their ball and go home if they can't autodetect the game, and they don't give me an option to point them to the game directory, they just instantly close.

Since the game is on Steam, it's being run under Proton, while the installers for the planes are being run in WINE, so that's probably why it's not working. Is there a way to install MSFS using WINE so it hooks into WINE's file system? Maybe that would allow the .exe files to autodetect the game and I can have study level goodness without having to deal with Billy G's bullshit.

Thanks for the help!

How do I modify windows files from manjaro?

how do i modify windows files from manjaro?

A few months ago I installed zorin os in dual boot with windows but a week later I wanted to change from zorin to manjaro and I did it,

but in some step when eliminating zorin I was wrong and windows gave me a blue screen, I followed the steps of a video to recover the windows boot but it was worse,

completely remove the boot and it does not appear in the manjaro grub screen and since then I am using manjaro

but now I'm running out of space in the manjaro installation and I need the free space that I have in windows but I can't find a way to modify the files in there

"Linux is obviously extremely influential"

The quote is from Richard Geldreich's blog, former Valve employee, who spoke about their benchmark of Left 4 Dead 2 on Windows (D3D) vs Linux (OpenGL) , and how Linux performed better. It's not unusual when I've discussed with people about Linux and Microsoft, there are those that often dismiss my points. As if Linux is a so insignificant that I am a conspiracy theorist for simply asserting that yes Microsoft does care and they do pay attention.

With amazing news of WINE/Proton anti cheat support coming to Linux and Deck, I came across this article by Verge too:

Xbox gets a new Edge browser that can play Stadia games, access Discord, and more

It makes you wonder what Microsoft plans? Whether you admit it or not Linux has been held back by Microsoft for years through D3D exclusivity. By keeping PC gaming centered around DirectX and being at forefront to dictate what implementation industry uses for innovating tech (e.g raytracing, DXR), they keep adding hurdles that makes chances of native development slimer and compatibility through WINE worse.

What are your thoughts?

Master Thread for EAC/BattlEye Opt-In Requests?

Would it be worth making a master thread, with a predetermined template and a link to each dev's specific contact us form (as well as any reddit/twitter threads etc.)? Will stop the sub getting cluttered and focus the message, and the more painless it is to submit a request (i.e. copy text, change a couple of names, paste onto a contact form on the same thread) the more people will speak out. Something like the following:

As per [Epic/BattlEye]'s recent announcement, anti-cheat support for Linux via Proton has become available by simply selecting a couple of checkboxes. With the upcoming launch of the Steam Deck, as well as a lot of people's dissatisfaction with Windows as a gaming platform, enabling the Anti Cheat service to work with [Game Name] would be an easy win for the community. In addition, the Steam Deck pre-sales are rumored to be in their hundreds of thousands - a brand new market to tap into, which will not be possible without enabling this anti-cheat Proton compatibility.

Dev Contacts:

DeadByDaylight: https://support.deadbydaylight.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

I'm open to suggestions on tweaking my wording, and I will update Dev contacts as they are commented - I'm not the most eloquent wordsmith!

I Know Everyone (Including Me) is Pumped, but Please Chill Out a Little about EAC/BattlEye

Literally all that's being posted on here the past two days have been posts about EAC and BattlEye, and a lot of them are copies of shit that's already been posted. What's more, a lot of them are posts asking about when it'll work and it's obvious a ton of people out there are expecting every EAC and BattlEye game to start working in the next couple of days. That is not going to happen.

First of all, everyone needs to be prepared for the fact that it's not unlikely that several (or even most) EAC and BattlEye games will never enable Proton/Wine support and will therefore never work on Linux. Despite the initial announcement claiming that Proton/Wine support could be enabled "with a few clicks," that's actually not the case. The actual developer documentation from Epic says:

To enable support for your game, you must be using SDK version 1.14 or greater and activate a client module for the Linux platform.

Players running the game using Wine or Proton will use the Linux client module, so you should test and activate client module updates for Linux regularly in addition to Windows.

So they have to be using SDK 1.14 or later, activate the Linux native client module, and keep the client module up-to-date in addition to their Windows stuff. They'll also surely have to test it to make sure it works.

That right there is more than many developers will be willing to do. If it really were just a matter of a few clicks, then yeah, most games would probably enable it. But it's more than that, and many games' developers have already demonstrated they're unwilling to do much of anything to help Linux compatibility. I would be genuinely surprised if more than 50 or 60% of the EAC or BattlEye games out there ever enable Linux support.

So everyone really needs to chill out and temper their expectations. The fact of the matter is that it will definitely take some time, there's zero pressure on game devs to do anything until December (when the Steam Deck launches), and it's very likely that a large number of games just won't even bother. I'm as excited as everyone else (Apex Legends is literally the only reason I use Windows, and I set up a single-GPU passthrough VM explicitly just to play Apex), but we all just need to see what happens and be aware of the fact that we haven't "won" like some people are claiming.

Let's get it GOING! Fortnite on Wine 6.17! (the game crashes though when I'm about to land)

This was just taken on ZorinOS with Wine 6.17 staging. What I did was download the game through Lutris and then import it in Heroic. The game crashes when I'm about to land, gonna try GE and update. Anticheat works though works and is initialized properly. LET'S GO! Apex next! :)

Yeah on GE 6.16 it doesn't work at all unfortunately. You will need to get 6.17 staging to have any chance.

Valve should present SteamOS as a viable alternative to Windows 11 that is fast,lightweight, secure, private, customizable and game-ready for even greater sucsess.

LTT has said that already. Valve should do a better job at focusing on SteamOS as a viable alternative for gamers to Windows 11. This is a major chance since Windows 11 is incompatible with a LOT of devices (even I had problems with my Ethernet and my system is brand new) and also it's boated and unethical. If Valve strikes a deal with a single OEM and the system is a success it will be a literal avalanche for Linux as a whole. What do you think?

How can I block Shadow of War from connecting to the internet?

Shadow of War currently has a bug in proton that causes it to freeze if it is launched with an internet connection. The current solution of turning off my network adapter before playing works but is hardly elegant.

Any idea on how I could stop just Shadow of War from connecting to the internet? I'm on Pop!_OS 21.04.

Thanks.

OBS Issues

CPU: Intel i5 6600K

GPU: GTX 1070

RAM: 8GB T-Force DDR4

I have two problems involving OBS and minecraft.

One fps loss, whenever I record with OBS in linx I have a huge fps loss (is cut in half), this doesn't occur when using OBS in windows, so is there any reason for this.

Second, and issue I have always had with obs in Minecraft is, black bars flickering on the top of the screen, in the past I've done things, but they have never fixed the issue, they either lessned it for move the bars to appear somewhere else in the recording.

Help for ExaGear/Limbo x86 ?

So I have an Onn 8 Pro tablet, android 10. 8 core arm cpu, 2 gb ram, and a decent glue to boot. 32gb storage. Immediately found wine, exagear, and Limbo x86 PC emulator. Others seem to have gotten windows xp to work on Limbo, I however only ever get to a blue screen[not bsod]. In Exagear, I can run Mirc and Filezilla, but trying to run Change My Software seems moot.

Any help on how to get either to work better? Exagear has a wine 6.0 OBB file for it it function. I can try the wine apk, but didn't give me any luck before.

I Do have DSL running like it's a gaming PC.

Usual setup is sandybridge or ivybridge cpu with 2-4 cpu, almost a gig of ram, 4 gb hdd space and that's the basics. I have a USB keyboard and mouse using otg cable to use.

Tldr, can't get cms to run, so I cam side by side install windows and android, also wondering why Exagear will tell me I need windows 7. ?

Storing game libraries in NTFS partitions makes things worse

I advice anyone storing steam games in NTFS partitions, specially Unity and Unreal games, even if you have encountered no problems yet, to switch to ext4 if possible. I was having a lot of problems previously with several games, and after a long time trying to solve them I realized it could be because I had my steam library on an NTFS partition. I decided to format the whole drive to ext4, and all my problems are now over.
This is a small tip so people can avoid bad surprises.

Now that official support for EAC is here for WINE, does it actually work yet? Is there a miimum WINE version I need to make it work or do the WINE devs still need to do some more work on it?

Pretty much the title, now that it works, is there a minimum version requirement for WINE? Assuming the devs for whatever_game have flipped the switch on EAC WINE support should it just work now? Or is there still some work that needs to be done?

What Flight Simulator 2020 controllers work?

I have FS 2020 installed on my Ubuntu 21.04 machine via Steam and ProtonDB. It runs fine with the " -FastLaunch" option. But my Thrustmaster T.Flight HOTAS 4 just pops up as a Generic Controller and quite unconfigured.

So, in the hope that I don't have to reboot back to Windows to play, has anyone got a T.Flight HOTAS controller working in Linux? Or failing that, do you have any other brand of HOTAS controller working?

Let Facepunch know we want Rust Support for Linux!

I saw a post about apex and thought I'd add to the conversation about the recent news regarding EAC becoming supported optionally through Wine/Proton. Rust is one of my favorite games and I haven't been able to properly enjoy it in months since I switched to Linux, I'm sure other people are in the same pool as me, especially the people who used to play Rust Natively through linux

So lets all get together and pester these developers into addding patches for Wine/Proton support as soon as possible! (I'm sure based on what garry newman said that we'll be seeing Rust EAC support within the next force wipe, but still.)

Question about flatpack steam

I recently found out that the Steam Flatpak version has fewer "compatibility issues" than the .deb version, so i decided to switch to that version. I also found on the Steam forums that I need to mount my hard drives (where I have the games) in a folder where root is not the only owner.

I mounted my games hard drive in /home/user/hard_drive but Steam still doesn't recognize it. Any idea what I should do or if I am missing something, could you please explain what?

In case you're wondering, I'm using Pop.OS 21.04 and downloaded everything from Pop.shop!

I foud the logs folder but was unable to find a log that corresponds to the time of the crash. So does anyone have any ideas?

Steam suddenly requests screen share on launch, should I be worried?

I just turned on my PC and suddenly got a window titled "screen share" with the prompt "Select monitor to share with the requesting application" and a couple buttons with the names of my monitors, with a little trial and error I noticed it was from steam, since it went away when closing it and came back up when opening it.

So what gives? Should I be worried? I haven't seen anything like that on linux before, and I haven't tried or even set up steam link yet so this really baffles me, I have POP OS and have it installed from the pop shop. I have been using linux for about a month this time, I have used pop os in the past a few years ago, this is completely new to me.

Just questioning this, it could be a good idea but not sure at all

Payday 2 crashes when I install Beardlib (mod)

So, I just downloaded Payday 2 and I wanted to install some mods I just can't play with... I'm using Proton, since the Linux version seems to perform worse (it's using OpenGL, so I expect it to perform worse).

Most mods require two dependencies: SuperBLT and Beardlib. To install SuperBLT, you need to drag and drop a dll file (WSOCK32.dll). Trying to run the game afterwards doesn't work, the game just launches as if it isn't installed.

However, a DLL override fixes this, and SuperBLT works as expected. The first time, the game itself doesn't launch, it instead opens a window and SuperBLT asks to download some required files. If you say yes, it all works as expected, and launching the game afterwards works fine, and in the menu you can see that SuperBLT works.

Then, to install Beardlib, you need to drop it into the newly created mods folder in the game's directoy. Doing so makes the game crash on startup, it just doesn't work, at all. Removing Beardlib makes the game launch again. I also tried to install a separate mod, the MUI HUD, and it also crashes the game. So i suspect the issue is SuperBLT not being able to load mods? I'm not sure. After this tho, the game wouldn't launch at all, SuperBLT got borked, I had to remove it to make the game launch again.

So, does anyone know how to mod this game on Linux? There is a guide, but it's for the Linux version, it doesn't even mention Proton.

I don't this this is required, but just in case, here is some system info:

  • Arch Linux with KDE
  • Ryzen 5 3400G with open source drivers
  • 16GB 3400Mhz RAM

"Failed to initialize graphics device" when trying to run Diablo 2 Resurrected

Hey mates!

I can't run D2R... when I want to run it, I get the following error:

---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
Failed to initialize graphics device. Please ensure your PC meets the minimum system requirements and your drivers are up to date.
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------

I can run any other game though. I even installed another Blizzard game in this WINE bottle, which also ran.

I'm running Manjaro, everything up-to-date.

I also already did the "black screen fix" (modified VKD3D), which won't help much for me, I guess, as I don't even get into the game.

If there is anything I can provide you to help me, please ask me!

I have an NVIDIA card (RTX 2080).

Moving to linux! what are some good first steps?

As the title indicates I am moving to Linux on my main gaming / workstation rig!
I would love some good suggestions for first steps ( ill be using POPOS. )

I would also like a good recommendation for a Virtual machine. Since I still learn using Visual Studio ( the full IDE ) ill need access to this from time to time. ( this mainly means I don't need the best GPU virtualization mainly CPU )

Hope you guys can help me out a bit here.
Have a great soonish Weekend!

Gaming On Linux Virtual Machine ( Is it Possible? ) ( Pls give your advice and help )

I know.... You guys may call it the biggest blunder but still how can I game in a VM which runs ArchLinux + KDE. I have AMD ryzen 3500u + 8gb ram.

I allocated 3.5gb of it to the VM. Any Hypervisor which you think can do a decent job pls tell about it. Some say QEMU / virtualbox/ Vmware but pls tell me which works the best. I should atleast be able to play minecraft on low settings.

Someof you say GPU passthrough. I really dont know much about it + I have integrated GPU (vega 8 graphics). I jus do some kinda casual gaming and satisfied with low fps less lag and low settings.

So please you guys tell how do I game on a VM which runs linux. All of your suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Upgrading GPU

I've currently got a Radeon R9 290x which is pretty decent for it's age. But I'm starting to encounter graphical errors exclusive for this GPU in Vulkan and have for a while. I'm running arch. I'm wondering which GPU I should upgrade to preferably budget friendly (hope this GPU bubble bursts soon). I've been looking at a Rx 5500 XT or Rx 580. I mostly game, watch movies and some light CAD work and fluid simulation.

Is Uplay slow for everyone ? (Lutris)

Hi gamers!

So I have a few games on Ubisoft account and want to buy Assassin's Creed Odyssey. However since ubisoft doesnt have anything native for Linux I had to use Lutris. The catch is that no matter the settings the whole app is very slow responding and not really working well. Yes I was able to install and run the AC Black Flag, however it was pain in the ass and I cant imagine always running the Ubisoft connect crap every time I want to run the game. Is there any setting or wine version which runs the connect app better ? Also if I buy the game on steam I have heard that I still need to install ubisoft connect so I guess that wont help, right ?

Thanks for any advice and have a great day!

Linux, Wayland and Freesync/VRR

Hello everyone,

I'm hoping to find someone who could help me with a few of my questions around Freesync/VRR support on Linux and Wayland. I don't want this to become an 'X better, Wayland suxxxx' thread, I'm just trying to understand the reasons behind developing Wayland a little bit better.

A bit of background about myself: I've used Linux for my PhD and post-grad studies (started with OpenSuse, then Ubuntu). I've been running Windows on my private desktop for most of my life because of gaming, but because of the recent developments with Proton and the Windows 11 leaks I started looking into using Linux for gaming. I'm currently running Manjaro with Gnome on X11 and I absolutely love it!

Everything was basically plug and play, except 1 thing: VRR. I've got a 144Hz VRR monitor (connected via DisplayPort) and was struggling to get the refresh rate match my framerate. I've discovered quickly that Wayland on Gnome does not seem to support VRR as of yet (the PR is now more than a year old...) and generally there seem to be only less than a handful of Wayland implementations that allow VRR to function (KDE and Sway are all I know). But even switching to X11 didn't give me VRR straight out of the box. I had to create a 20-amdgpu.conf and set up the configuration manually.

That leads me to my questions:

  1. Why is VRR on Linux not detected automatically like it is on Windows? Is the Linux development just a little bit behind, or is it a feature that the Linux community doesn't recognize as high priority? Or was it all my fault and I didn't set something up properly?
  2. I know that Wayland is still in active development, but it seems to be especially far behind with VRR. I've also read that VRR isn't something Wayland has default protocols for (is that correct?), so I'm wondering why's that? Is it because Wayland is meant to be tear free by default and therefore the developers didn't think VRR support would be beneficial?

I know my knowledge about Linux isn't the most complete, so my apologies if the answers to my questions are super obvious. I'm genuinely trying to understand this part of the Linux ecosystem a bit better.

Does VKD3D (DirectX 12 to Vulkan) perform worse on Nvidia cards compared to AMD?

I've been playing Cyberpunk 2077 on Windows and Linux using my GTX 1660 Ti. I've noticed that performance is significantly worse on Linux. Some rough performance stats below (via Steam in-game counter, didn't bother with something more comprehensive because Mangohud hates Cyberpunk 2077 and refuses to launch with it).

Windows 11 LOW EndeavourOS LOW Windows 11 ULTRA EndeavourOS ULTRA
Street Kid Bar Intro (Standing Still) 78-79 fps 53-54 fps 44-45 fps 29-31 fps
Street Kid Bar Intro (Looking Down) 109-110 fps 81-82 fps 61-62 fps 44-45 fps
Street (Standing Still) 80-83 fps 59-60 fps 45-47 fps 33-34 fps
Street (Driving) 81 fps 54 fps 33 fps 23 fps

I know Proton has a performance impact, but I expected better performance due to videos like this where the performance gap is extremely small. What could be the reason behind this gap?

A few wine games feel laggy when moving mouse

When moving my mouse on such games like satisfactory and the witcher 3 (which are both platinum on ProtonDB the game feels laggy even at 60 - 80 fps

im aware of high polling rates being an issue, but using a mouse at 150 hz does the same thing but just slower as if im using my steelseries one at 1000hz but inching my mouse.

For satisfactory I have it on epic games and i run it through the heroic launcher and iv tried it with multiple wine launchers including steam proton with no change.

For the witcher 3 iv tried multiple proton builds with no difference either.

Does anyone know a fix?

After speaking with everyone yesterday, my game Couplinked is now open source!

Yesterday's post for anyone curious.

I ended up going with the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International license for now. TLDR: you can do what you want with the game as long as it's non-commercial. Will likely switch to the MIT license once the game reaches the end of its sales lifecycle.

That being said, Couplinked is still available for purchase on Steam and Itch.io.

For those interested, the game was made in C# using the Unity engine. Source code here! Have fun (and please don't judge too hard)!

Big thank you to everyone who contributed to yesterday's discussion!

Discord push to talk not working when Discord window isnt focused (Manjaro Gnome)

For some reason my Discord absolutely refuses to let me use PTT when i have any other window focused. Doesnt matter if its games, Firefox, or even the terminal.

I have googled the issue a bit and believe it may be an issue with Wayland not allowing background windows to intercept keyboard input, but i havent been able to find an actual fix for this beyond some sketchy script that globally mutes and unmutes pulse-audio microphone input for some super sketchy pseudo PTT nonsense (not sure if this will even work for me as i use a USB razer headset). There were also some other instructions relating to KDE and 'global hotkeys' that didnt seem like they would work for me as im using Gnome.

I certainly understand that not allowing background apps/windows to grab kb input is a security design choice (and a good one, normally), but there has to be some way to whitelist certain apps or specific keys or *something* so that discord isnt completely useless for me for voice calls.

More info: i have Discord installed via Flatpak, but has similar issues when installed via AUR and even when run directly via the app downloaded from discord's site directly. I have not tried Snap but expect that it would also behave similarly.

Running games in other languages using PlayOnMac

There are games I want to play that do not function unless run in Japanese. The way I got around this problem with base Wine, running the game in the terminal using the command "LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine Game's.exe" instead of doubleclicking the executable, appears not to work with PlayOnMac. When I put that in command in the arguments line of the game's configuration, nothing changes.

A workaround I've attempted is to run PlayOnMac in Japanese, but haven't been able to so. Trying to change things in system preferences just gives me a grayed out dialogue box with "PlayOnMac.app doesn't support additional languages". The terminal command "LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 open PlayOnMac.app" doesn't change the application's behavior compared to opening it normally.

How can I run a game in another language using PlayOnMac?

I opened it selected 1.17.1 version and launched it, after opening a looked around and it was looking good, then i pressed w key to move and then it just closed everything. I have up to date nvidia drivers (proprietery). I added a "crash" report log to imgur page with a link - https://imgur.com/gallery/MmFhF7p . If anyone has idea why it suddenly closes the game for no reason please let me know. P.s. no errors windows/pop-ups are shown after it closes the game.

Has anyone's Blackmagic Intensity Pro 4K just stopped working?

I've been using the Intensity as a capture card and a way to play consoles through my PC. It's been working fine for a month or so, but recently just stopped being recognized by the desktop video software. Linux and my motherboard still recognize it as what it is. But the Desktop software, and by extension, OBS cannot see it. All I see on the desktop software is "No device detected." OBS can't interface with it at all.

I've also already contacted support, but communication is sluggish and I wanted to come here and see if there's anyone else with the same issue that knows what's going on.

Want to double check a dual boot set up before I pull the trigger on it.

I already have a manjaro linux system on ssd #1, and I'm installing windows 10 to ssd #2. I'm adding ssd #3 which will be the drive all my games will be installed on.

The plan is to be in linux for 99% of the time, and use the bios boot drive override to boot into windows when I want to play something with HDR / non steam game.

ssd #3 should be formatted as NTFS, not fat32, right?

If I install a game to ssd #3 through steam in linux, will I be able to play the same install through windows later on, or will proton and all the other steam linux comparability make that difficult?

Will this set up cause any problems that I might not have thought about?

Thanks a ton in advance for any suggestions!

I don't understand RAM resource management on Linux

First of all, please don't comment with the "usual unused ram is wasted ram". I already know that.

I have 16GB ecc ddr4 and a xeon e3 1275 - v5 (3.6 ghz quad core, nothing special).

My system, after 2 days or so, becomes noticeable less responsive in application that, i assume, deallocate and allocate memory often (Especially Games, Browsers, ...).After some testing, i figured out that it's when the RAM is full (Cache + Used);It shouldn't be a problem, since cache is replaceable, but apparently that's not the case.

I started looking what could possibly hinder my system when the memory pressure is high.I looked up and discovered that ZSwap is enabled by default. I tried different compression algorithm but only disabling it via zswap.enabled=0 i noticed that, at least, when RAM get full the system is somewhat more responsive.Still, the issue was still there. I then managed to avoid the cache to fill up too fast by reading this doc. https://docs.gluster.org/en/latest/Administrator-Guide/Linux-Kernel-Tuning/

I change my values to vm.vfs_cache_pressure=175 Which, to my understanding, should reclaim 75% more than usual.I haven't fiddle with vm.dirty_background_ratio and vm.dirty_ratio since i am not confident enough.

Ultimately, i had to resort to have a systemd job every 4 hours that does this stupid thing:

#!/bin/sh
sync 
echo 3 >/proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
sync

I REALLY don't want to use this kind of solution. There's gotta be something else i can do to have my system behave correctly.

Any advice?

Wine can't find dlls because of case sensitivity

The problem that I currently have with my wine installation is that it doesn't find the dlls to start the game, he says something like:

0100:err:module:import_dll Library D3DCOMPILER_43.dll (which is needed by L"B:\\Games\\Atelier Sophie... DX\\Atelier_Sophie_DX.exe") not found

but I know that the dlls are in the wineprefix, only thing is that the dlls are all lowercase and it seems to work if I symlink the mixcase names to the lowercase names. The weird thing on this is, that prior of knowing it was a case sensitivity problem I just rebooted my system a few times, sometimes it works and the case sensitivity isn't a problem, sometimes it doesn't and says again that he can't find the dlls. Also it was not always like this, but I don't know since when it started to act like this (but could be since I did set up my system again because of a mistake)

Because I don't know whether this is a bug or a misconfiguration of my system I do ask you people whether you know more about.

Is playing games on linux as horrible as it looks?

I was very exited to try linux since im building a new gaming rig. 5 minutes on the proton db website killed any excitement i had. Listen, if something doesnt have a rating of platinum or native, im assuming its more trouble than its worth and will be dogshit on linux. Heres what i saw.

Street fighter 5: gold, many users complaining about slowdowns and slow framerates. NOT ONE USER EVEN MENTIONS ONLINE FUNCTIONALITY? It lags on windows in some matches cuz the netcode sucks, will linux and proton make that worse? I dont know.

Fallout new vegas: gold, many users saying the game wont even launch and has bugs that arent in the windows version.

Deathloop: silver, many users reporting crashes and low frame rates.

Team fortress 2: silver, apparently linux users cant access any servers that run VAC, so its unplayable

From my perspective it seems like using linux for gaming gurantees that ill have to treat every single new download like im using an early 2000s snes emulator. Ill have to fuck around with code and online tutorials just to get games to run, and after all that work, more bugs and worse performance than windows.

If you can prove me wrong PLEASE DO, I WANT TO DUMP WINDOWS AND MICROSOFT SO FUCKING BAD! But im not willing to gut out my whole gaming experience for it. Is linux gaming really as bad as it looks? Am i overreacting over nothing?

Far Cry 5 , works only once while updading drivers.

I run FarCry5 using wine and dxvk. Whenever a update is received my installation works and I can play , but when I open it for a second time , it stops working

This is the exact error

014c:fixme:dbghelp:MiniDumpWriteDump NIY MiniDumpWithDataSegs

For playing again , I need to wait for the next update where I can play it again only for a single time.

The updates are related to vulkan (Vulkan-icd-loader , vulkan-headers etc)

Linux FSRed from 1440p vs Windows 4K Native Benchmarks on a 5950X and 6800XT

Hello, in continuation to my previous post I wanted to complete this with a comparison between Linux vs Windows on 4K FSRed from 1440p vs 4K Native. Here are the benchmarks:

Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Control

Cyberpunk

Death Stranding

Final Fantasy XV

Overall there's some slight visual fidelity loss but I think it's more than acceptable for the change in frames (especially if you don't handpick pixels in Zoom mode). Control especially is practically the same. I think I found my perfect balance for gaming and I'm so happy! :) A massive thank you to all the Linux devs who made this possible. :)

Looking for help to test if our games' Linux builds are working

Hey!

So, we publish video games. And we want to make sure everyone has a chance to enjoy our games, so we try to have the games on Linux always in addition to Windows and Mac. But there's a problem: we don't have Linux in use! We would love to find new friends from the Linux gaming community who could be able to test our games and tell if everything is working or not.

If there are any people who would like to help us and try out our new games among the first ones, just DM us or join our Discord and find Sami! Thanks all.

Odd Steam games quirk in Wayland

Im having this odd issue when I play certain Steam games in Wayland, it seems that the intro screen (usually the games logo) will animate at like 1FPS and be really laggy, but as soon as it gets to the main menu everything is ok? It doesnt happen at all in Xorg.

Just for reference here are my system specs.

For further context, games like CS:GO, AoE2:DE, and Risk of Rain 2 (although the issue no longer happens with RoR2, even on Wayland), are all games where I experience the issue. I seem to be able to work around it by pressing the Super key to get to the applications overview (where it shows all my open windows with a little preview thumbnail) while the 1FPS loading is happening. In the overview it loads like normal so I just press the Super key again once the game reaches the main menu and its all ok. I can also work around it by launching the game with gamescope in the Steam game launch options and using my screen resolution as the width and height arguments.

Has anyone experienced this before or knows whats happening? Its not really a dealbreaking issue at the moment but I was wondering if its a known problem and whether or not theres something I can do so I dont need a workaround? Seems to be something to do with compositing? But I dont know enough to know whether or not thats accurate so if someone could shed some light that would be really good!

How Will We Control Nvidia GPUs On Wayland?

So, obviously it's awesome that Nvidia has finally started supporting accelerated XWayland. I'm still using X11 right now, but that was obviously the biggest obstacle to Wayland becoming viable for Nvidia users.

But I wanted to test it out, 1) to make sure it was actually working, and 2) to see how it performed (I actually got like 10% higher fps in Cyberpunk 2077 but it didn't feel as smooth).

But I encountered a huge problem - I had no way whatsoever to configure anything to do with my GPU. The GUI Nvidia X Server Settings obviously wouldn't open because NV-CONTROL X extension wasn't found. Obviously I figured that, since it's literally titled "Nvidia X Server Settings," but that completely screws up everything else. GWE doesn't work, because it uses NV-CONTROL. nvidia-settings from the terminal doesn't work, either.

Obviously this sucks because it means no overclocking, no raising power limits, etc. But what's worse is that it means you get zero fan control, and have to let the VBIOS control the fans. That really sucks, especially since I prefer to have an aggressive fan curve in order to keep my temps cool. On X11 my GPU maxes out at 60C, but with VBIOS control the GPU will get up to like 80, and I don't like running my GPU that hot for an extended period of time.

Has anyone heard anything on whether or not Nvidia plans to separate nvidia-settings from X11 in order for it to work on both X and Wayland?

Questions about switching over to Linux

So I have used linux for about a year as a day to day on my laptop when I use it(which is rare)Linux. My main desktop has an rtx 30 series card that I got for SR-IOV. Which I guess isn't happening. I understand I need to buy another GPU for games that will not work on linux. My question is where does that stand currently. Direct X 12 support and raytracing I kind of want as I have a raytracing card. I also wonder how well modding games are supported and to what extent as well as what is getting online with games like namely battlefield games and other big titles? Thank you. Please keep things as simple in terms as possible as I am not that far into linux I just dislike where windows has gone since windows 8 and try not to use it other than my main gaming machine because gaming

Using the MAYFLASH GameCube Controller Adapter for Rivals of Aether on Proton! (And other games too.)

If you have tried to use a MAYFLASH GameCube Controller Adapter to play Rivals of Aether on Linux through Proton, you may have noticed a few things:

  • The UI shows Xbox buttons.
  • In training mode, you can't use the dpad to enable frame by frame.
  • Holding straight left or right causes the stick to drift slightly up or down, making horizontal perfect wavedashes/wavelands a nightmare to perform.
  • Assuming your adapter supports it, you can't use the trigger buttons for anything.

So today, after ripping my hair out for a few hours, we're going to fix that! This involves a few steps:

  • Enabling udev access for your adapter.
  • Disabling Steam input for generic controllers.
  • Calibrating your controller using evdev-joystick-calibration.

PREREQUISITES!

First of all, make sure that you have nano or another editor installed on your system, and either sudo or doas is installed and configured. On most distros, sudo should be configured by default, and most come with nano. If not:

Ubuntu/Debian/Linux Mint/Pop!_OS: $ sudo apt install nano

Arch Linux/Manjaro/ArcoLinux/EndeavourOS: $ sudo pacman -S nano

We will be using sudo for this, as if you have doas installed you probably know more about what you're doing than I do. If you have no clue what either of these are, don't stress over it.

Also be sure to have python3, git, and pip installed:

Ubuntu: $ sudo apt install python3-pip git

Arch: $ sudo pacman -S python python-pip git

Install evdev-joystick-calibration!

This is simple enough, and universal.

$ sudo pip3 install git+https://github.com/Virusmater/evdev-joystick-calibration

To check, we can use which:

        $ which evdev-joystick-calibration
        /usr/bin/evdev-joystick-calibration

Creating udev rules!

First, we need to get the id of your controller adapter using "lsusb" in a terminal:

        $ lsusb
        Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
        Bus 003 Device 006: ID 1b1c:1b55 Corsair CORSAIR K70 RGB MK.2 LOW PROFILE Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
        Bus 003 Device 004: ID 1b1c:1b5a Corsair CORSAIR M65 RGB ELITE Gaming Mouse
        Bus 003 Device 007: ID 0079:1847 DragonRise Inc. MAYFLASH GameCube Controller Adapter
        Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
        Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
        Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

We're looking for this one:

Bus 003 Device 007: ID 0079:1847 DragonRise Inc. MAYFLASH GameCube Controller Adapter

And more specifically:

ID 0079:1847

Write those numbers down. You'll need them, and they may be different for you.

Now we need to make the udev rules.

$ sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/10-mayflash.rules

Copypaste the following in:

        KERNEL=="hidraw*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0079", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1843", MODE="0660", TAG+="uaccess"
        SUBSYSTEM=="input", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0079", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1843", ACTION=="add", RUN+="/usr/bin/evdev-joystick-calibration -l"

Change the numbers inside of "ATTRS{idVendor}=="xxxx"" and "ATTRS{idProduct}=="xxxx"" to match those ones you wrote down earlier.

        KERNEL=="hidraw*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0079", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1847", MODE="0660", TAG+="uaccess"
        SUBSYSTEM=="input", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0079", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1847", ACTION=="add", RUN+="/usr/bin/evdev-joystick-calibration -l"

Finally, hit ctrl + s to save, and ctrl + x to exit.

Now we just have to reload the rules we just made:

$ sudo udevadm control --reload-rules

Unplug and replug your adapter, and close and reopen Steam.

Calibrate the controller!

Follow the guide at https://github.com/Virusmater/evdev-joystick-calibration for more info.

Basically, just type:

$ evdev-joystick-calibration

and it will guide you through calibrating your controller. It may be a wild guess as to which number is your controller port.

Move both sticks in slow, complete circles, and be sure to press the triggers down just enough that they don't click at the bottom.

Press any button to save your calibration.

Final steps!

Make sure that Steam input is disabled for Rivals of Aether. To do this, I'd recommend going into the Steam controller settings, and disabling generic controller support, then setting Steam Input for the game to default in the properties.

The reason you shouldn't disable Steam Input in the game's specific properties is because it can break PlayStation controllers.

Then finally, change the launch options to the following:

evdev-joystick-calibration -l && %command%

If you have any parameters to add that you need, put them between the "&&" and the "%command%".

evdev-joystick-calibration -l && PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1 %command%

Any help/criticism appreciated. Hope this helped someone.

Some Old Games (Like Quake 3) Locked to 24-bit Color?

This is something really weird that's been going on with two clean brand new x64 Linux installs. One with MX Linux 19.4 AHS KDE, and another, most recently, with Ubuntu 21.04. All using Proton 6.3-6 for all games with the latest Nvidia drivers (470 as of this writing)

First game I tested was Unreal Tournament '99. I tried both the vanilla DirectX driver that came with the game and the community-made (and quite excellent) OpenGL driver. Both run amazing except for the fact that the game is locked to 24-bit color only. The old OpenGL driver, weirdly enough, has no such issue, but with that one, I can't change the gamma/brightness, and it's darker over how it should look.

Quake 3 suffers from locked 24-bit color too. I can change brightness in that game, but only up to the halfway point. If I try to move it up past that point, it won't do anything.

Morrowind, same issue. 24-bit color only, but I can change the gamma in that game. Half-Life OG, no issues. Quake 1 remaster, no issues.

If I had to guess what was going on, the best I could say is that there's something odd in the Nvidia Linux drivers for my Quadro that these old games/Proton might not be expecting to be there. I could pull it out and try my 1050 Ti to test, but I'm lazy and I'm hoping I can fix this without pulling out my massive workstation and unscrewing a bunch of stuff.

Specs:

Ryzen 5 3600XT

16 GB ECC DDR4 2400 MHz

Quadro RTX 4000

ASUS Prime X570-Pro

120 GB Kingston SSD

I need a PC for gaming and....

So I have used windows on laptops (since most shipped with it) and due to a lot of proprietary components in ever laptop I was sceptical to move. Recently I decided to go old school and thought of building a PC. By the time I finalized stuff and started purchasing components, the great gfx card shortage started. I could manage to get my hands on a P2200, which I knew would work awesome for Plex. I then tried the Unraid OS which worked awesomely well for everything else I needed. The Dockers on it are robust and reliable. I was able to get things like Plex, Emby, Sonarr, Radarr etc work on it perfectly. I even went ahead and made a few VMs and could do most of my work on a puny RPi3B. This was the time I started dabbling into linux and found most of the things suitable. I purchased the Unraid after the trial. I have tried PopOS, Ubuntu and the shiny Garuda Dr460nized which did work for the most part. I finally managed to get my hands on a 3080ti and I'm still waiting to purchase a monitor since I'm tied between a triple 1440p or a single 4k, but more on this later. The passthrough seems to be decent and I haven't been able to test a lot of gaming coz of work. Tackling the 3080ti on the Unraid wasn't easy and I seem to have got the video passthrough going for PopOS. Now my question is, do I need an Unraid running things apart from the PC or would Ubuntu/PopOS be able to run my dockers natively without a hitch? Is VM with hardware passthrough available on PopOs?

My system has R95900x Asus Dark Hero Vengeance Pro 3600 (4x16) Strix 3080ti P2200 1tb NVME.

Has anybody tried using GTA V mod menus on Linux? (hear me out)

I mainly play GTA Online with a close friend who really doesn't enjoy the PvP aspect, so I sometimes use a mod menu to defend us from other hackers and toxic players who constantly chase us down to kill us. Nothing terrible, just trying to have fun. Was just going through my game library seeing if there's any that wouldn't run under Proton/alternatives, and got to GTA V.

99% of mod menus only offer Windows builds for obvious reasons, has anyone used a mod menu under Proton and had it work? I doubt it since they use a lot of injection methods and stuff, but worth an ask. Thanks

Switch pro controller to Pop! OS?

Hi, I would like to connect my switch pro controller to my linux machine even for game outside steam, I know it can be connected directly via bluetooth but I would like to have rumble support for the dolphin emulator so I'm looking for a more "definitive" solution. https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/fxwh54/using_nintendo_switch_controllers_on_linux/ this used to work fine on older version of Pop! OS but I decided to refresh my system with the 21.04 update and now I can't get it to work again (the controller just won't connect, the leds blink back and forth for a 'lil bit and then they turn off completely and the pc loses the bt connection)

I'm looking into buyng one of those mayflash / 8bitdo universal adapters, do they work well on linux?

Do You Back Up Your Game Configurations?

Games like Quake have files you can easily edit to change bindings, settings, etc. I am curious, does anyone here back up these configurations like they do their dotfiles?

Question about ThrustMaster T150

Hello I have a t150 racing wheel that I got before I started using Linux and I noticed that there is some community driver support for it. I tried out the one by Scarburato but I couldn't get it to work, and then I noticed that the kernel now has ThrustMaster drivers built in. I was wondering if the drivers included in the kernel support force feedback as I noticed it was absent when I tried it out. In case you need it I am currently using Fedora 34. Thanks in advance!

Is it possible to use an 8bitdo retro receiver as a bluetooth dongle?

This is specifically a question about the models that are designed for consoles such as the one found here: https://www.8bitdo.com/retro-receiver-snes/ I don't have one of the stand-alone bluetooth receivers to test with.

Basically, when on Windows, I can use one of these devices as a bluetooth receiver by plugging it into my computer using a microusb cable. This is useful for using 8bitdo controllers wirelessly on my HTPC setup.

When I try to do the same on my linux install (KDE Manjaro), I haven't had the greatest luck. The device lights up as if it's working, but my bluetooth dongle is not recognized in KDE's bluetooth device manager and it's impossible to sync any controllers to the retro receiver.

So my question is: Has anyone had any luck using this device this way?

How do you install a random Windows game via WINE?

Normally I use Steam or Lutris to install all Windows games, but I've got one that hasn't got a Lutris installer for it, I just have the original CD files and EXE. How do I install it?

I think I've heard before that I need to make a WINE prefix or something, but I'm not sure how that's done and I'm also curious if there's a GUI tool that makes installing these games easier. I'm on Kubuntu 21.04.

gaming HTPC running linux someGPU questions

i have 2 graphics cards a gtx 980 and a rx570. the 980 is fastest in windows but i was wondering if the 570 is a better fit for linux and proton. currently waiting on parts so i havent tested yet. would probably also want to undervolt the gpu since its probably going to run toasty under the tv. might also need to flash the 570 to a non mining bios seeing i got it cheap from a miner. any idea on driver stability on nvidia vs amd cards on arch

Rocket League launches with a black screen and no sound, before crashing to desktop on wayland. help?

Hello! Recently, I've been working on moving from Ubuntu to Arch, and for some reason, rocket league is having some issues with launching. I try to launch it using heroic, and rocket leagoe's window pops up, but is black, then it eventually goes fullscreen, but still black, and has no sound. it will sit like this for a few moments before crashing. I checked the logs myself, and it seems that rocket league cannot run the dGPU (failed to create swapchain). Tested under X11, and it launches just fine, so what am I missing for Wayland?

This isn't an actual question. I'm just ranting. I try to for the first time today in a long time. Finally got past that one point where it used to freeze on me. Played a solid 15 minutes. Then I went back to freezing on me. Freezing up my whole computer.

I am finally clean of windows.

I dual booted for a while. Linux for everything and steam games and Windows for epic games. I stopped playing games on epic games and then I needed a drive for a other computer, to put popos on it, so I removed windows from my computer. Just wanted to say that. I use steam and playonlinux to play all my games btw and mint is on my main computer.

Heroic Launcher FSR

Hi all,

Just to clarify, if a game has native support for FSR, then as long as I use Proton-GE, I can simply enable it in game, and leave the FSR hack unselected for the game (as long as it's fullscreen) ? Or do I need to turn on the FSR hack option as well ?

Thanks.

Is there a way to get Valve's "fossilize_replay" shader thing to use more cores?

Has Steam changed the way it applies/delivers Vulkan shader updates?

I used to get the occasional large update for the latest Vulkan shader stuff, but for the last week I'm constantly getting multiple tiny updates ranging from several hundred KB to a few MB for most of not all games!! Am I bugged or has Steam changed their delivery strategy?

Any way to remap gamepad buttons or other workaround?

I pulled out an old Guitar Hero III disc (pc version) to see if I could get it working under linux, and found that it runs quite well but I am having a weird problem with the gamepad buttons. While they all work normally in the menus, track selection, etc, as soon as a song is launched, none of the buttons are mapped right. This is true for the guitar that came with the game as well as a normal xbox 360 controller.

In the case of the guitar, 2 of the notes are permanently being held down and is basically unusable (are they registering as some kind of axis?) The game is playable with the normal controller, but the green button activates the orange note instead of the green one, and the shoulder buttons activate the others. Note that none of this is related to the lefty-flip setting for playing guitar left-handed. Both controllers function normally outside of the songs, as well as all the buttons registering normally in KDE's gamepad settings. Wanted to check if there was anyone that knew enough about how wine handles gamepads to work around the issue somehow so that it can be played with the guitar?

How to install vcrun2010?

I'm trying to play Tails of Iron, and the most recent protondb report says that installing vcrun2010 through Winetricks will fix the game's issues. https://www.protondb.com/app/1283410

I have tried installing it, but am running into a lot of problems. When I launch Winetricks, I get this error:

You are using a 64-bit WINEPREFIX. Note that many verbs only install 32-bit versions of packages. If you encounter problems, please retest in a clean 32-bit WINEPREFIX before reporting a bug.

But it lets me continue... on the main screen I select "Install an application," and there is not vcrun2010, but there is vcrun2010express. I'm assuming that's what I need ?

When I try to install it, I get some errors..

I get the 32/64 bit error again

Mono does not appear to be installed.

Running /usr/bin/wineserver -w. This will hang until all wine processes in prefix=/home/loren/.wine terminate

Working around wine bug 12501 -- Installing mspatcha to work around bug in SQL Server install

32/64 bit message again

Note: command wine setup.exe returned status 1. Aborting.

And it stops there. I have no idea what I'm doing with Winetricks (obviously, I guess) and could use some guidance as to what I need to do...

I am running Manjaro, kernel 5.13.15-1

How do you guys get 64bit codecs on 64bit wine prefix

Hello all, i wonder how do i get 64bit codecs on 64bit prefix, most tutorial on internet use 32bit prefix and playing some VN games. But i need 64bit codecs, install K-Lite Codec the color is reverse if i play on MPC-HC, no long after that the app stopped working.

I want to install Project Diva Simulator (Link if someone want try https://projectdxxx.me/, the client is open source if you search or find on Github), the website is reccomended me use LAVFilters but it doesnt work. Looking another Codecs and i found K-Lite but the app is stopped working, sometimes cant open Movie because the codecs cant detect 32bit Codecs (If i install 32bit codecs).

My computer is R7 250 (Support Vulkan by MESA), Ryzen 7 1700.

Can I use an ISO in Wine when I don't have the EXE? [Mac]

this is likely something super newbie of me but i can't find the answer for mac, i just keep finding linux and ubuntu and i'm not even sure if those would help as none of them are written from a starting point, they're already like

waist deep in knowing what's going on

so i'm ultra new to wine, i'm using gcenx's version, and i downloaded it to play a window xp program and followed a youtube video
but with that tutorial i followed the iso wasn't int he equation, we already had the exe and all the game files striped out of its iso

for some other niche games i had when i was younger almost no one remembers, all i have is the .iso

which no matter how many times i double click, like most isos i've ever had on my mac, refuse to mount which is a common step i keep finding for ubuntu and linux

i found a thing telling me how to add a drive to wine through the wine config, which i've done

i added the D: drive and then in D: i added a path directly to the .iso i wanted it to use, but now i don't know where to go from here

is there a way to get wine to crack open the iso and get the installer? or do i need to know what the installer might be called inside the iso? or do i just need to find a way to mount/extract the setup exe myself?

if it helps/matters i'm running osx 11.2.1

Failure to scale & Start

I am trying to get fallout 4 to run through lutris but I narrowed down the problem to wine, the window comes out at this size regardless of the ingame resolution or resolution in lutris. (https://imgur.com/a/pWcC3tq) Plus when I hit start on the tiny screen it fails to start, the game just crashes. I know fallout 4 should work well because I had it running on Ubuntu but I havent gotten it up on Gentoo, I could be missing something but Im rather lost. Thanks!

Street Fighter V freezes every couple of seconds

The game otherwise runs fine, but every 30 seconds or so the game freezes for about 5 seconds. None of the visuals move, but the audio in the background continues as normal. Any idea why something like this might be happening? For the record, this isn't because my hardware isn't up to snuff; the game ran without issue on Windows. I have tried using Proton-GE and Gamemode, but none of them did anything.

Steam not detecting DualShock 4 on Pop_OS

I own a DualShock 4 that I connect to my PC with a USB cable and it worked perfectly fine on Windows, however neither Steam nor Cemu (running through Wine) can actually see it now. I did install ds4drv, however when I run the command "$ ds4drv --hidraw" to detect the controller, it just stays stuck at

"[info][controller 1] Created devices /dev/input/js1 (joystick) /dev/input/event20 (evdev)

Mouse look cannot turn 360, invisible borders?

i5 10400 2.9GHz, GTX1660 Super 6GB, 16GB DDR4

What Remains of Edith Finch (Wine) is unplayable due to strange mouse-look glitch where camera/mouse can only pan 180 left to right at one time, and about 45 up and down at a time. This plane changes in unpredictable ways as the character moves (sometimes plane is E-W limited, sometimes N-S, vertically similar, sometimes looking at sky only, other times ground). It happened in Road 96 after tabbing out and back in once so I think its a local setting. Has this happened to anyone else before?

Controller problems on Linux Mint 20.2

I just switched from Ubuntu to Linux Mint and everything works fine except for my controller. Usually if I wanted to use my controller in Ubuntu I'd go to steam then general controller settings and then my controller then click identify, and done it's connected. On steam on Linux mint there isn't any identify option. Is there some package in missing or something else? My controller is a wired Xbox one controller.

VR Gaming + Privacy

I'm thinking about buying a VR headset. As far as I understand, the valve index would work best for linux. But (as far as I understand) it requires you to place cameras in your home. So, what I'm wondering: what happens with the images recorded by the cameras? Can I be certain (for example by using foss software, restricting internet access, or whatever), that these images are not sent to some server? What kind of software do I need, how does it all work together? What about the Vive (pro)? Are there differences? If yes: What are they?

Can Linux detect/use a mouse rate over 1000hz?

I recently got a Razer Viper 8K which can do a mouse polling rate up to 8000Hz. Most of us have been fine and use 1000Hz mice for a while now and should be fine. I think these 8K mice are for those gaming monitors at 360Hz refresh rate.

When using a program called `evhz` (I grabbed from the AUR) with the 8000Hz enabled, it will still only max out at 1000Hz in the detection. I don't know if the software won't go up higher or that the OS currently only supports a max of 1000. For example, this only lists 1000 as the max: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/mouse_polling_rate

I'm currently using Xorg since Wayland has an issue with a lot of games I play (native and Proton) and wasn't sure if Wayland had higher support or not. Could be a limitation of the current evdev.

Anyone tried a mouse with a higher rate and/or know a proper solution?

Hi-Angel
Library to play games in slo-mo

Have you ever had a game the requires quick reaction, while you don't have one? Did you ever think "I wish I'd play this game with Flash abilities"? Say no more, this library comes to the help https://github.com/Hi-Angel/clock_gettime_override

I created it a few years ago, but never posted on reddit till now. It is funny to play for example GTA and be able to shoot everyone on high speed because in your reality the game goes very slow.

Sorry, along with this post ought to come a video of me playing Alien Shooter 2 "Survival" mode, but long story short, I didn't manage to make a recording. I stumbled upon various problems, and in the end decided it's just no worth the effort. Believe me, the recording would be boring it's just half an hour of me shooting monsters in a veeeery slow game, and losing at the end anyway.

The library works both with native and WINE games. I tested it in particular with GTA and Alien Shooter in WINE.

Under the hood it works by overriding clock_gettime function and collapsing its reports to make them look 4 times slower. It is theoretically possible that it may not work for some games, but so far I haven't found such examples.

How to use

  1. Get the binaries (either by compiling per instructions in README.md, or by getting precompiled ones from the releases page and unpacking with tar -xvf binaries.tar.gz).
  2. Run LD_PRELOAD="/path/to/libclock_gettime_override64.so /path/to/libclock_gettime_override32.so" ./my_game.

You might see errors like wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64/ELFCLASS32, ignore them. It just says that depending on whether your game is 32 or 64 bit, the library with incorrect bitness was ignored.

As result you should see slow in-game animations, slow gameplay. Audio typically works as usual, only gameplay is affected.

FAQ

  1. Can I have a hotkey to enable/disable slo-mo as needed, rather then whole game being slow?
    • Sorry, no. It is very hard to implement but for unusual reasons. You see, when game creates new processes (mostly relevant to WINE), it's impossible to tell which one should own the hotkey, and should do the switch between slow and "normal" modes. I'm not saying it's impossible, but it requires some pretty complicated hacking, which I'm not interested in spending time on. Contributions however are welcome!

How well does Steam Play work right at game launch?

I'm upgrading my PC in anticipation of Elden Ring and taking the opportunity to (try out) migrate to linux. I want to play it immediately at launch, so I'd like to know if Steam Play usually works for brand new games or if it takes some time before a working version comes online. According to ProtonDB all of the Dark Souls series works well through Steam Play.

FFXIX+Steam+GE Problem

Using Arch on 5.15-RC1. Using Open-Source AMD drivers (6600XT). FFXIV works wonderful on steam with Proton+GE version except whenever I alt-tab out of the game back to say, Chrome - the FPS seems like VSYNC turns on or something. The reason I think this is because I'll go from having 144FPS consistently to seeing the FPS drop all the way down 49.0 and literally stay there. Restarting the system is the only way to fix it. Closing all apps, restarting Xorg. Nothing works.

To add to the mix, the problem isn't reliably produced. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. There are times when I can alt-tab out several times to Chrome or something else and have no issues. Other times, the first one does it.

Some persuasive advice, or pointers.

I'm in the process of building a new system:

AMD Ryzen 3700x MSI B450 max motherboard 16gb DDR4 3000mhz Ram AMD RX 6600 XT Asrock Challenger D 2x 2tb SSD 2x 6tb Western Digital Blue

So my main aims are video editing and gaming plus media storage. I'm happy to not use Adobe, so no issues there.

Gaming wise most of what I own is fine gold and above on proton. I do have a handful of anti cheat which I'm hoping Steam deck does some magic, like the rest of us. My concerns are.

  1. I've never used a AMD GPU with Linux always Nvidia laptops, how do they compare to Nvidia?

  2. Do I need run a late kernel for the GPU?

  3. In windows, ryzen software is the only real accurate temp monitoring software, what is used to check temps for the CPU and GPU?

  4. If I'm mainly gaming should I just stick to windows and anything dx12 will just be lacking and not do the hardware justice.

nVidia laptop screen lag

Hi everyone.

Having used Linux at work (server) for many years, I've finally decided to move from Windows 10 to Linux desktop. Bit by bit I have weaned myself off all the dependencies in software so that I'm ready to move to Linux. But there is one final hurdle that prevents me and it's driving me nuts!

I have an ASUS ROG laptop with nVidia 1660ti connected to 34 inch external laptop. When I install Linux (Manjaro, Fedora, OpenSUSE), everything is fine - until I install the nVidia drivers. Once I do this, there is window drag lag. To be fair this exact same thing happens on Windows 10, so it's likely a driver issue. On Windows 10, the "fix" is to disable the Intel graphics card, forcing it to use nVidia all the time. This works fine. I can have the laptop monitor on or off an it's fine (though I usually switch the laptop monitor off when using the big monitor).

But on Linux, if I switch off the laptop monitor, the lag increases to an insane level. Clicking, moving the mouse - it's really really slow. Re-enable the laptop monitor and it's usable, but with some smaller lag.

If I don't install nVidia drivers (but use Nouveau), then the lag issue goes away completely. But I don't want to use Nouveau, as I want to game.

So, could anyone please advise what is the way to achieve nVidia gaming, with no lag and with the laptop monitor switched off?

Thanks!

Global Launch options for Steam?

Hello there penguin friends. I'm still learning the ropes over in the Linux land having a grand old time. There is one question of support I would like to ask you guys and gals since ducking gave mixed results.

Im looking at ways I can use global launch variables like MANGOHUD=1 gamemoderun cause doing it for every single game is starting to get old. The other reason I ask is that i got an AYA NEO coming Monday and would like to use Linux on it instead of Windows since proton has FSR built in with Glorious Eggroll's version and I'm looking at taking advantage of that for the device with WINE_FULLSCREEN_FSR=1.

Thank you~

Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous keeps crashing at Drezen loading screen despite new dxvk dlls

I have been dealing with this issue for weeks now. I cannot continue my game of Pathfinder Wotr since the game hangs up when moving to Drezen for first time. Loads to 88% then crash.

Now, many people report that new dxvk dlls fix the issue and for most it seems to work.

My issue is that updating said dlls doesn't fix the issue for me.

Unlike others, I am running the gog version through wine.

Does anyone have an idea why I still have the issue while other people seem to have moved past it?

If you need any logs etc please ask. I don't post any yet since I am not certain which ones would be helpful in this situation.

SOLUTION: Running steam on (debian) firejail, all windows are black

Version: Built Sep 13 2021, at 22:01:31, Steam API v020,

Steam package versions: 1631572918 AND "Steam Beta Update" (local)

Symptoms:

  • steam starts, but all UI window contents black
  • every 10 seconds, a dialog pops up for 1/10 second, stating "Updating Steam runtime environment..."
  • View -> Small Mode "works" (games can be launched, but pop up still happens & kicks you out of fullscreen games)
  • Big Picture Mode "works"
  • when opening a bash in the same firejail (using the same profile), .local/share/Steam/logs/steamwebhelper.log shows an error:

$ tail .local/share/Steam/logs/steamwebhelper.log
Updating Steam runtime environment...
/home//.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_64/steam-runtime-heavy/setup.sh: line 99: /dev/fd/62: No such file or directory
  • The same error can be seen by directly trying to launch the setup script:

~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_64/steam-runtime-heavy/setup.sh
Updating Steam runtime environment...
/home//.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_64/steam-runtime-heavy/setup.sh: line 99: /dev/fd/62: No such file or directory

Analysis:

The problem stems - as indicated - from line 99 in the setup.sh script:

   mapfile -t executable_output_array < <($identify_library_abi --ldconfig --skip-unversioned 2>/dev/null)

hat is happening here, is that the <(..) syntax uses a file descriptor in /dev/fd to store the output of the command in parentheses, and to source that into the mapfile call.

Minimum command to reproduce error:

- when executing (in a bash, same jail rules) the following test command, the error is reproduced:

$ read input < <( ls ) && echo "${input}"
bash: /dev/fd/62: No such file or directory

However, access to this /dev/fd path is blocked in the /etc/firejail/steam.profile because the setting private-dev is active.

Solution: comment "private-dev" setting in /etc/firejail/steam.profile

$ sudo sed -i 's/^private-dev$/#private-dev/g' /etc/firejail/steam.profile

After this (upon next start of the firejail, of course), the command to reproduce the error executes fine, and steam updates & loads correctly.

Gamepad with paddles that you can map from Linux

I'm interested in a gamepad with paddles (buttons on the back/bottom of the gamepad). Use case is mapping the right paddle to the XBox B button for From Software's games. Which gamepad would you recommend?

I see that the both Scuf and Razer's gamepads (e.g. the Razer Wolverine Ultimate) let you map the paddles without any extra software. I also see that the 8BitDo Pro 2 (which I'm leaning towards) lets you map them using an iOS or Android app. That works for me; as long as you can do it without either a console or a different desktop OS.

I will be using this wired.

Ubuntu 20.04 GNOME Flashback with Metacity has trouble starting certain Unity games fullscreen

There's an issue with certain Unity games failing to start in fullscreen on Ubuntu 20.04 with GNOME Flashback and Metacity. The problem resembles closed Metacity issue #11 SDL2 fullscreen apps w/ window decorations fight for mode change.

Linux versions of Unity games I've tested:

Game Status
Valheim Always fails to start in fullscreen (starts windowed after editing its config file)
Kerbal Space Program Sometimes starts OK, often either fails to start or starts with choppy sound
7 Days to Die Usually starts OK

I'm not sure how to proceed looking for a workaround. I'd been hoping that it was a Metacity issue because a single fix would suffice for all games, but the Metacity bug tracker points to an SDL issue that was closed with a patch.

Compiling SDL 2 seems like a non-trivial task compared to Metacity, which I've patched in the past. Does Unity even use SDL 2? I'd hate to go to the trouble of compiling SDL 2 to find it didn't fix the issue.

Has anyone else run into this? Suggestions appreciated.

Why is mouse acceleration neglected on Linux distros?

On Windows, disabling mouse acceleration generally just works. Meanwhile my experience with Linux distros in that field has been cumbersome, with workarounds being necessary more often than not. And it seems I am not the only user with such complaints. Why do Linux OSes struggle so much with this? It's a very basic settings that's all but necessary for gaming and still good to have for other uses.

Do you think its a good idea to recommend gamemode for the steam deck/laptops

My reasoning behind this post is because I heard that gamemode would set the cpu governor and gpu to performance which I understand as using more power and fps for the games, Is it a good idea to recommend gamemode for laptops/steam deck that are being powered by batteries would gamemode still be safe for battery based devices or would it degrade the battery quicker.

I obviously don't everything about gamemode, but from looking at the github page it does mention setting the cpu and gpu to use performance modes.

Check your mouse polling rate

Wine seem to have a problem with mouse polling rate of 1000hz, which (for me at least) manifested in higher mouse latency. If you are using 1000hz polling rate, consider turning it down to 500hz. You can use piper to change the polling rate. I also used evhz to verify the change. The latency diff is very noticeable for me.

Some more tips on reducing latency:

  • Ideally, keep using xorg. Wayland compositors seem to add additional frames of latency right now.
  • Lock your frame rate to a level, your GPU can sustain without using it at 100%. Watch this excellent video about this.
  • If you have a VRR capable monitor, lock your frame rate to (your_monitors_max_refresh rate - 1) to keep for fps in your monitor's VRR range and turn off vsync.
  • Increase your mouse's DPI to 800 if you can. Video about this from the same author as before. You can use Piper for this.

Can i get microsoft-like Spider solitaire on Linux?

Before i switched the parents' PC to ZorinOS Linux, dad played Microsoft's spider solitaire every day on Windows 10.

It looked like this and he played on highest difficulty and i tried the built in AisleRiot spider solitaire but that's not it... He wants the same as he was used to.

If it could be with the exactly same layout, that would be great, or i can somehow use emulation for it if there's no exactly the same game on Linux.

It's basically the only thing he needs next to a Firefox web browser.

Lutris game freezes gnome after switching to amdgpu-pro

Now dont get me wrong, I would rather not use amdgpu-pro, but I need a profesional Adobe Premier alternative and Davinci Resolve just doesnt work without them.

I tried installing rocm/rocr and while DR opens, it can load any video

I tried installing only the OpenCL part of amdgpu-pro but then it gets stuck on the splash screen

So I installed the whole drivers, and everything works fine, I had to tell a couple of other games in lutris to use the radv Vulkan to get them to work, the rest works fine with the pro-vulkan one

Except one Guild Wars 2, as soon as the splash screen launches gnome freezes, I can open tty and return to gnome, but its still frozen solid

Running the game in windowed mode works too, and gnome doesnt freeze, mostly what I want is to know is how to troubleshoot whats wrong, and hopefully I can get some help here

Help running games through steam

Hi, im totally new to this, as I was just trying to play cruelty squad on mac, since its windows only right now. I downloaded PlayOnMac, and got it all set up, but where do I go from here? Steam won't even let me install the game since it's windows only, so how do it run it through PlayOnMac? Sorry if this is a stupid question, as I said before, completely new to this.

Nvidia alternative of FSR for Linux?

I just saw that AMD GPUs Linux users can use WINE_FULLSCREEN_FSR=1 to activate FidelityFX which boost FPS so much.
Is there any alternative of that for Nvidia GPUs?

Black Mesa won't load - HELP

I saw black mesa has 75% of disscount on steam, I wanted to play it since a lot time ago, so, considering that it runs nativley on linux, I bought it.

I waited it to install, and then I played it, everithing was great until I started a new game, when the train reached the first load, the game keept loading like for 20 seconds and it closed.

I tried it like 5 times more, but they drived me to the same result: the app closes when the train reaches the first load.

I verified the integrity of files, they're all ok, I also ran steam by the console, it said this:

failed to dlopen /home/(my user)/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Black Mesa/bms/bin/game_shader_dx6.so error=/home/(my user)/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common
/Black Mesa/bms/bin/game_shader_dx6.so: the file of the shared object can't be opened: the directory or the file doesn't exist.

I went to /home/(my user)/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Black Mesa/bms/bin to check if the file game_shader_dx6.so existed, it didn't

The only time I was able to go further than the first load point, was when I lowered the graphics settings, but in the second load, BM closed again.

I'm really confused, does anyone have any solution?

I need some help running a bat file on wineconsole

Recently I downloaded Resident Evil 4 to play the HD Project mod, but to install the mod you need to run a .bat file. I made a post in another subreddit about the issue, and one person said I should manually convert the bat commands to bash, but it's very hard for me to understand what should I do, so I tried to use Wine to help me, and found out that Wine can run bat files with wineconsole, I opened and tried, but when the files were being moved, this line appeared in all lines

wine: Read access denied for device L"\\??\\Z:\\", FS volume label and serial are not available.

All that was appearing for me in the wineconsole was: Path not found.

Does someone knows what is the problem and how to fix it so I can install the mod?

If you're at all interested, you can sign up here to request access to the playtest build. We'll be testing throughout the weekend.

The game is called Aquamarine. Here's a little more info:

Aquamarine is a contemplative, turn-based survival adventure about perception and discovery in an alien ocean. Inspired by the psychedelic sci-fi of the '70s & '80s, the game combines the mystery of classic adventures and open-ended survival mechanics with elements of exploration, puzzle-solving, and strategy.

How to properly use Lutris?

GOG buyer. I buy there anything except rare occasions there are not available.

I don't like Steam in background collecting data and resources, so I purchase GOG titles. I use Proton-GE due to this: however, games sometimes don't run through it. I was told running them trough bare Wine is not good, and Steam Proton is the way. However Proton GE doesn't always work. I was also told that Lutris requires a lot of elbow-grease -- it's labor-intensive. I am willing to work that much to fully configurate it. I also quote:

if you're only using wine -- like, via command line or via Lutris or something -- you're definitely doing things incorrectly. Running games through Steam's Proton is the way.

So, what is the way of properly using Lutris? Thanks in advance.

Has anyone tried the Alienware 2021 m17 R4 RTX3070 w/ linux for gaming?

Hi all,

Title kinda says it all. I'm considering upgrading my existing gaming laptop to this model, but I wanted to see if it's worked for anyone so far? Only thing I've read about is people using Ubuntu 20.04 having issues with a black screen on the 3080 model but that it seemed to work with the 21.04 version; I'd be using 21.04 Pop_OS! (ubuntu derivative), so I'm kinda hoping for success?

I would consider getting a System76 (I like the idea of supporting the community) but it seems the Oryx Pro is always out of stock these days :(

Black Mesa isn't a linux-native game?

I stupidly assumed this was a native Linux port and bought it. It shows the penguin logo on the store page, and is built on the Source engine (which obviously supports Linux). I even remember reading some news articles from years ago which said it was a native port.

I bought it yesterday (on sale!), and loaded it up. I immediately could tell it didn't feel native. It's hard to put my finger on why. The menus were weird, as was some stuttering (despite having a high-end PC). I wondered if something was wrong, and wanted to try using the Lniux Soldier runtime to see if that would help, but it wasn't in the menus..... Hm... After some digging it seems the devs cancelled the native port due to bugs, and the Linux version is just using proton. I'm a little disappointed. (side-note, I wonder if this is related to Valve recently telling companies to not write native games, but target proton, as even devs on the source engine couldn't resolve native-linux issues)

Running games that do not need installation with PlayOnMac

Because of the recent FORCEDENTRY exploit forcing me to update to Big Sur from Mojave, I need to switch from using base Wine to PlayOnMac.

When I opened PlayOnMac, I felt lost despite people touting it as intuitive. Between stuff whose installer worked with base Wine back on Mojave and stuff that simply doesn't need installation in the first place, most of my programs do not follow the use case the interface is optimized for.

Thus, my primary question: How do I run programs that do not have an installer with PlayOnMac? Running them out of their current locations would be preferred, but isn't strictly necessary.

In addition, where can I find the location on my Mac that PlayOnMac stores files corresponding to locations in Windows in? Essentially, the stuff which a base Wine installation puts in the ".wine" folder. Asking for the purpose of transferring existing save files into the new paradigm.

A little while ago I wrote a little program called IfOnlyIWasRightHanded. I made it as a nice little solution for gamers that use their mouse with their left and game. Problem was I wrote it in bash beacuse at the time I wanted to practice other languages. But alas, I have re-wrote the program in Python with a few features that I didn't know how to code in bash. I know this program fills a hole that never existed but it was fun to make and I wanted to share with yalls. I plan to learn how to use GTK and make it a GUI soon here

Do I need a dedicated graphics card?

I'm in the market for a new laptop as my current one is at least 5 years old and starting to slow down considerably. I've been looking into a lot of laptops and I've been leaning towards some with a Ryzen 7 5700U and I've been wondering if that would be enough for my work load.

For work I am a programmer and I regularly have 2 monitors with VsCode on one and Firefox with YouTube playing in an offscreen window. Aside from that I usually have Slack and a few terminals running. Occasionally I have to screen cast while I code, but I imagine that's more dependent on my internet speeds than anything.

On the side I maintain a WebGPU tutorial. I'm also interested in doing some light development streaming and potential game play streaming as well. As far as games go I mostly play Minecraft and Factorio. I've dabbled in making my own games with Godot as well as Unity. I would like to make a game with WebGPU, but I haven't had the time.

I've had issues with my current computers dedicated graphics card, but that may just be due to it's age. I'm worried that the GPU sharing RAM with the CPU might be an issue, but I don't have a lot of experience on the matter.

Any insight on the matter would be great.

My Experience Modding Mass Effect Legendary Edition on Linux

TL;DR I modded Mass Effect Legendary Edition by installing ME3Tweaks in a Windows VM, adding the game's install directory to the VM as a shared folder, and installing the mods in Windows to the host.

The past several days, I've been working on modding Mass Effect Legendary Edition on my Arch install. It's been a bit of a struggle but I think I've finally got it working and want to share my method in case anyone hadn't thought of it. I installed the game through Lutris Origin.

Modding MELE requires a program called ME3Tweaks; while in some cases, you can just pull the files and overwrite the ones in the game, this isn't recommended and some mods use a format that makes this extremely difficult. However, ME3Tweaks doesn't function on Linux; you can import mods, but can't choose the game directory as a target. I'm no developer, so I didn't investigate this. I then tried modding manually; however, as I mentioned, many mods use a special file format, called a merge mod. A merge mod, from what I've learned, is a set of JSON instructions that tell ME3Tweaks how to modify a specific file rather than simply overwriting it. This allows mods to play nice together, but to install these mods manually, you need to decompile the merge mod, decipher the JSON instructions, and then manually edit the file in question.

I was willing to do this, but the file I needed to modify could only be opened in another program called Legendary Explorer... that also doesn't work on Linux. I tried doing it on my Windows laptop, but Legendary Explorer will only work if you have the game installed.

My last option was to reinstall the game under Windows, mod it, then move the files over. That was going to be painful, as the game is over a hundred gigabytes. However, at this point, I had an idea: what if I installed the modding tools in a Windows VM, and pass through my game install directory as a shared folder? This seems to have worked! ME3Tweaks installed the mods from my Windows VM directly into the game's install on my Linux host. This has me wondering if I could do this in similar use cases; for example, modding Skyrim when it's installed on a different drive than your home directory (since Vortex on Linux needs the game installed on the same drive to work), or any other game that needs a modding program to work that doesn't play nice on Linux.

I'm sure people have thought of this before but wanted to make a post about it in case anyone else was looking to mod MELE and wanted to try this method.

Looking for a python script for binding my linux steam folder to my windows exFAT drive steam folder

Three days ago I was playing around with a new distro and with the idea of having a shared steam folder so I could use my steamlibrary on my dual boot setup.

I found this post on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/SteamPlay/comments/irj1bl/using_exfat_for_a_shared_steam_library_between/ and it was exactly what I was looking for, I had some troubles setting it up and in one of those google searches I found a python script that automated all the process, you only had to clone it on the steam folder and add a function to your bashrc so you could call fix_steamlibrary and it would detect changes on your library and fix them.
The problem is that I had to do a fresh install and now I can't find that comment anywhere.

I think it was an amazing tool for all the people that feel tempted by linux but are not yet ready to take the leap, so it would be great to add it here as a tutorial.
Does anyone know the script I'm talking about?

Everything was working fine, but i changed the location the mods are downloaded to. It was a normal C:// path that windows uses, but being on linux, and also have duo boot of windows, i was thinking that it might was gonna install stuff on the windows disk, so i changed it to the actual location of where the game was.

After that i got spammed with permission errors that i cannot get to stop, the program is unusable now and i dont know how to fix this.

Gzdoom only launches about 1 in 5 times with wayland?

So I recently made the jump to Arch and decided to go with sway as my WM to try out wayland. Being able to play the original Doom/Doom2 is a must for any system i have and I installed gzdoom-git.

Gzdoom launches but when selecting a game it fails to launch often with an error about x11. So I installed xorg-xwayland to see if thatd help and it does... sometimes.

So now I will have to try and launch a game multiple times for it to even get a successful launch. Anyone else run into something like this? I'm still setting up my environment as I need it and so far have gotten everything I need to work but if I can't have Doom I might have to move to i3. This is my first time using a WM as well as Arch but I am really enjoying it and have learned a lot so far.

Any thoughts would be appreciated thanks!

I know my system can run it, I've ran it on windows a week ago with a solid 60fps.

I'm running arch linux, with the lts linux kernel(5.10.64-1 lts) and I'm using bspwm as a WM.
I've tried using proton experimental, 6.3-6 and 5.13-6. None of them work.

I am running my rtx 3060 with the nvidia 470 driver(that has been reported to have the memory leak), however the game doesn't get the chance to even reach a high percentage in ram usage. I've ran it alongside htop and my ram stays underneath 20%(I've got 16gb ddr4). It crashes before it can really impact my ram.

Does anyone know how I might fix this, or at least learn more about it?

[New to linux] 15 FPS on Splitgate

Hi, I recently set up a dual boot to try out Linux. When I tried to play Splitgate (the Linux version, not proton) my fps drops so bad to about 15 in the main menu and 12-30 ingame. If I restart the game, my fps bumps up to 80+ and stays so for like 5min - a round. But after that, it drops down again. On windows, I had around 80+ consistently.

The game is on an Samsung SSD 860 qvo 1TB. Using the same Ext4 partition as the operating system.

I've tried to use the windows version using Proton and then I get 60FPS but I get kicked after like 3min for suspicious activity.

My specs are:

Distro: Pop!_OS 21.04 (Nividia version)

CPU: Intel i7 8700

GPU: GTX 1060 3GB

Main Monitor: Samsung g5 odyssey 144hz 1440p

Secondary Monitor: Some old 1680*1050 60hz Philips monitor

Any help is appreciated.

Full-screen games reset my display settings

Hey guys,

I'm new to Linux gaming, so I'm still learning the best way to do things. I use 2 different monitor resolutions, so I use fractional scaling to match window sizes on them and make things line up better (LOVE this feature). The trouble with this comes when I launch a full-screen app, one of 2 things happens.

1: The window will open at 150% (interacting with fractional scaling) and be unusable until I turn off fractional scaling and restart the app.

2: The window will open as fullscreen, but allow the mouse to leave the border, and also completely reset my display settings (refresh rate, monitor placement, scaling etc.)

I could live with these if there was a command line that I could just run every time I get out of game to reset everything without messing around with GUI settings, or if I could program each game to run a different display setting depending on how they interacted with my default.

Has anyone here come across similar issues and either have a solution, or at least a direction to point me in?

All help is appreciated, thanks!

winetricks can only set vram size up to 2048?

I've been having problems getting the new Windows game Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous to load save games and I suspected it might due to VRAM allocation problems. So I fired up regedit.exe, added a VideoMemorySize key, set it to "6144" and presto! now those save games load properly.

Then I tried to duplicate this with winetricks, and found that I could only set pretty low memory sizes - only up to 2GB. Why the hard limit? Modern video cards can go up 16GB+.

System wide mic noise cancellation.

I want something like Discord's Krisp Noise Cancellation because I have no AC and my fan is very loud and.

So far I've found these 3 options:

Cadmus (Las release on November 2020)

NoiseTorch (Last release on June 2021)

Real-time Noise Suppression Plugin (Last release on October 2020)

Which one would you recomend? Is there another one? I'm leaning towards NoiseTorch but idk

I have terrible fps when gaming

So i just downloaded manjaro xfce today ans dual booted it with windows and tried to play minecraft and was averaging around 45 fps and in windows i usually get around 200+. I then downloaded csgo and had a similar result in very low performance. I have no idea why my fps is so low because i have a rtx 2060 super and a ryzen 5 3600x.

Error Rockstar games launcher in Lutris

Good, after trying and trying to install the rockstar launcher several times I don't get it. When I get to the part where the client opens directly I get an error saying: "An error has occurred. Make sure you have closed all open Rockstart Games Launcher processes and try again. If the error persists, visit here referring to rockstar support." And well, I thought that error had to happen, but once I got there when starting the rockstar client says: "This game has not executable. The install process didn't finish properly." Once I get here I don't know what happens, since it seems that I can't even install the Rockstar client on my computer.

Do you know any that can happen?

FSR - Shadow Of The Tomb Raider (Proton / SteamPlay) Side by Side comparisons

https://imgsli.com/NzE3MjA/
Cloud saves are borked on the proton version, so I'm at the very beginning of the game. Might retake them on a more crowded scene.
I forgot that screenshots from Steam cuts off the fps overlay. I get 40 fps (max) on 4k while balanced gives me between 60 ~ 90 fps, depending on the scene.I also included a screenshot (https://imgsli.com/NzE3MjA/3/5) where FSR is disabled so we can compare it side by side. FSR is waay better than traditional upscaling and there is no performance penalty in using it.

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider (Preset High)
Ryzen 5 3600
GTX 1660-TI (overclocked)
I'm using WINE_FSR_STRENGTH=1 as a param, so sharpness is a bit off, but I kinda prefer that way.

Intel Arc

Anyone excited for these GPU being released in 3-5 months from Intel? Given their drivers and first class Linux support I am excited for it. The XESS which uses AI to upscale games seems neat as well. I think it will be great to have another graphics card producer other than AMD who supports Linux for a bit of competition.

Hi, I've got a small issue with the size of my "/" folder and the games I've been playing :

[Linux Mint 20 Ulyana (Kernel update 5.11.0-34-generic)]

So, for the past few months, I have been playing a game that required compiling of part of the game's files/shaders at every launch due to a bug of how the game is handled by the Proton compat layer. This came with a constant but fluctuating warning about the space on my / drive being low. It could go from being just 123MB to 800 MB. And since it was fluctuating from time to time, and that my game is installed on /home, which is on another partition, I didn't pay much mind to it. Here's where it came to a brutal end : today, it stopped fluctuating. I'm stuck at 100% utilization of drive space.

Now, I had done my research to verify that 20GB would be enough for the / partition as all my files/games/archives would be put on another, much larger partition, which would be more than enough for all of it. And it still is, no complaints there. However, such is not the case for the / partition, which I thought would not be touched much aside from mainline updates getting dumped there, and I didn't envision that part of the install to ever reach more than 18GB (starting at 15) Dunno how it got so full.

Hope you guys can help me shed some light on how this situation has arisen, can't seem to fathom how my system now takes so much space that I can't even download a file anymore. I could definitely delete the contents of "tmp" is that's a smart move, which I'm reluctant to do. Or I could try and expand the partition using so far non-allocated space on my SSD. Can't say that sounds super safe either. Thanks for your attention.

Basically if i press the keys W and A in Windows it would come out as WAWAWAWAWAWAWA, but in Linux it only goes WAAAAAAAA or AWWWWW, depending on which key is pressed first. Is there any way to fix this? My keyboard is a Dell SK-8115.

Asking for help testing an upcoming Linux version of an indie game

Hi everyone!

A little while back, I asked for help from this sub:

https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/ol0h77/asking_for_help_with_proton_testing_in_advance_of/

I asked if any you had hardware similar to the SteamDeck, and if you could see how well our game ran via Proton on your hardware.

Many of you responded, and it worked fine - but one of the biggest asks from this sub was that we tried to release a native Linux version of the game, rather than relying on Proton. Honestly, you were all so welcoming and keen to help that we really wanted to follow your suggestion.

At the same time, we managed to crowdfund 500$ to support some of the development for a new update to the game.

It's taken some time, but I'm back here to that we have created a Linux version of the game, which will go out in a future update, alongside several other new features.

So once again, we're asking - do you have a Linux box which is broadly equivalent to the hardware of SteamDeck? And if you do, could you try out our game on your machine? We can supply you a key for this purpose. If so, please reply to this thread and we'll get in touch via DM.

Also feel free to reply again even if you replied to the last thread.

We have quite a big community, including a testing group on our Discord, but very few of them have a Linux setup, and we could do with some more.

The game is here, if you need more info: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1547290/Nina_Aquila_Legal_Eagle_Season_One/

240hz on Samsung G9 still an issue?

I've had my G9 for a while and have been gaming at 120hz no problem since my computer couldn't really push much more. But just got a new computer with a 3060 Ti and a fresh install of Pop_OS. I am trying to get it to run at 240hz. It did just fine in the live usb but after install its no longer an option.

Xrandr doesn't show it and manually adding 240hz option isn't working. Also, nvidia drivers are up to date.

I have seen lots of posts about this around reddit but haven't found anything more recent. Is there a way to get this working yet?

Lutris - Origin: Loads games in broken window?

So I never had this issue before. I have played games just fine for well over a year now. I tried to play something the other day and when the game launches from Origin, the window gets minimized, and when I go to maximize it the screen is broken. I see a small part of the game window on the bottom of my screen and the rest is just my desktop frozen. I can see the game is running fine but for whatever reason, the window for the game is broken. I did some updates on my computer prior to this, minimal ones. I can't seem to trace those to be a cause for this. Any ideas?

Desktop with AMD for monitors and Nvidia for Games/CUDA

Searching for it I only find articles about iGPU on Notebooks.

Since I am quite annoyed on Desktop with my Nvidia Card I thought about getting another AMD just for the monitor output but I would still like to use the nvidia card for games and cuda.
Has anyone done this before? Cuda should be no problem. But games?

Advice would be nice. Thanks!

What issues should I expect with my planned setup?

Hey there,

I plan to get a Samsung QN95A TV /same features as QN90A in the US/, and wire it with an optical Ruipro HDMI 2.1 cable to a (also planned) 3080Ti for both content consumption and gaming. On Windows I would expect that the display would turn up when I connect the TV to the GPU and auto enable 4K 120Hz, VRR, HDR etc features, however I am running Linux Mint 20.2 as an only OS. My question before I spend my money on the GPU is what issues should I expect on Linux, would this setup run at all, would I be able to force 4K60 or 120/VRR/HDR on if it doesn't auto enable? Is AMD's support for said features better?

The TV is 100% chosen, however I am not 100% set on the GPU and I can get an AMD one instead. I just really don't want to have to dual boot Windows to game on the TV unless there is no other option.

Windows media encoder on wine?

Hi there!,

I'm testing a few games on Linux and I can't get around a few bugs on the game "Acts of Aggression", from Steam. When launching there is a pop up error saying that media enconders 9 are missing. I've looked for them and installed them on wine but I still get the same error. It is not a huge deal as the game works fine, but I would love, just for the sake of understanding wine, to know how this could be solved.

I've tried to install VLC too as VLC has video codecs. I even tried to use wine 32 bits to install the 32 bit version of the windows encoder, but I still get always the same error. And the main screen that has a video playing on the background is green.

Also, if instead of downloading it manually, you tried to install windows media encoders from wine, it says (broken on wine).

Should I do a prefix on the games folder with custom settings?, I've tried to find information about wine and windows media encoder and I don't see anything relevant. I also tried a few things on my own, but they didn't work.

How does it compare to Intel i3 or i5 with a Nvidia GTX 1650 ?

I had no 1st hand experience with AMD or Radeons, integrated or not, on Linux for a long, long time

Cant get any mod manager to work like Vortex and Mod Organizer 2

I am using Manjaro linux and i am trying to use non steam version of Skyrim with a mod manager like Vortex (nexus mods) or Mod Organizer 2. Been trying for 2 days to get it to work and i keep failing.

Skyrim itself works just fine, and i normally dont have this much trouble installing stuff through lutris (although i AM a noob).

The vortex installer at one point tells you to disable your internet, so i did, but it tried to install something called Wine Mono after that step and that failed since it couldnt download it. I tried reinstalling several times and always ended up with error that vortex couldnt launch because of missing executable or something. Tried different runners but didnt matter.

For Mod organizer 2 kinda the same story. During install it asked me to choose between steam version or wine version for skyrim se, since i have non steam version of game. After install i tried to launch but it couldnt because of "Missing proton 5". My lutris does have access to a Proton 6 egg roll thingy , but also that one didnt work, seems it needs a 5 version.

SO i am now a bit at a loss, i also tried manual installing of mods but i mess that up so :P i kinda need a mod manager for it. Maybe there is another one i didnt try yet?

Do you think it would be difficult to change from KDE to gnome the day my steam deck comes in the mail?

Okay just a heads up I HATE KDE, Im a fan of gnome because of the OS X feel. I also believe that it would run better with the GUI.

Steam is shipping the steam deck running arch with KDE.

If I install gnome do you think it would be hard? I also dont want performance being bombed. Ill be installing a lot of programs day one.

Touch/form factor wise, I think it would work better. Especially with the app manager and dock.

How do i give lutris access to all proton versions my steam can use?

So i am trying and failing to install Mod Organizer 2 for skyrim on Manjaro and this makes use of proton 5, other versions dont seem to work with it. (ill make seperate post for this)

And this is not the first time i am trying to import proton versions into lutris runners. So once and for all, i want to just have lutris get access to the folder where all proton versions for steam are located.

"Doom 3" demo, "Quake III Arena" demo and RetroNinjaCyberAssassin's Linux versions added to Luxtorpeda for Steam

Context 1:

Doom 3 (stylized as DOOM) is a 2004 survival horror first-person shooter video game developed by id Software and published by Activision. Doom 3 was originally released for Microsoft Windows on August 3, 2004, adapted for Linux later that year, and ported by Aspyr Media for Mac OS X in 2005. Developer Vicarious Visions ported the game to the Xbox, releasing it on April 3, 2005.

.

Quake III Arena is a 1999 multiplayer-focused first-person shooter developed by id Software. It is the third game in the Quake series and also the first spin-off to Quake; it differs from previous games by excluding a story-based single-player mode and focusing on multiplayer gameplay. The single-player mode is played against computer-controlled bots. It features music composed by Sonic Mayhem and Front Line Assembly founder Bill Leeb.

.

RetroNinjaCyberAssassin is an early access 3D story driven FPS constructed using the Zandronum engine, which is a source port of the open sourced id Tech 2 engine that was used to create Doom.

Context 2:

[Luxtorpeda is a] Steam Play compatibility tool to run games using native Linux engines.

News:

u/d10sfan has added dhewm3 source port for Doom 3 demo, ioquake3 source port for Quake III Arena demo and Zandronum source port for RetroNinjaCyberAssassin to Luxtorpeda repo. Thanks to that, native Linux versions of the games can be played as Steam games.

Installation:

Follow "Installation (using tarball)" method, pick Luxtorpeda as Steam Play compatibility tool for the games, install and launch the games.

Note: Click Install/Owned button on SteamDB page of Doom 3 demo and Quake III Arena demo to install those demos.

No more vulkan on older AMD GPU?

Mint 19.1 Kernel 5.7 MATE 1.20.1

GPU: R9 280X

CPU: R5 2600

After an update in the last month or so a bunch of my proton games stopped working with errors along the lines of "Installed video device does not support DirectX11 features". After usual off and on again stuff I noticed when launching steam from terminal it throws

Vulkan missing requested extension 'VK_KHR_surface'.
Vulkan missing requested extension 'VK_KHR_xlib_surface'.
BInit - Unable to initialize Vulkan!

I double checked I was still running the amdgpu driver with lspci -k | grep -EA3 'VGA|3D|Display' as it's required for vulkan on the amd tahiti cards but all good there

-System-Product-Name:~$ lspci -k | grep -EA3 'VGA|3D|Display'
09:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Tahiti XT [Radeon HD 7970/8970 OEM / R9 280X]
    Subsystem: Tul Corporation / PowerColor Tahiti XT [Radeon HD 7970/8970 OEM / R9 280X]
    Kernel driver in use: amdgpu
    Kernel modules: radeon, amdgpu

From some googling it looks like what I'm missing/should be using to resolve steam's errors is amdvlk but looks like my GPU isn't supported by the current version found here https://github.com/GPUOpen-Drivers/AMDVLK and it recommends older cards use v-2021.q2.5 or older. Does that sound like the right path and if so could anyone give me a walkthrough or point me in the direction of one for how to go back to that older driver and prevent it from updating to the one that doesn't support my gpu? I'm comfortable using the terminal but I've never used it often enough to remember how to do anything without a guide.

What optimizations have you done for your system?

I am curious as to what kinds of tweaks Linux gamers have done for their system that has improved overall gaming performance?

Did you tweak any configuration files? Did you download and install a software package outside your distro's official repositories (AUR, ppa, clone git repo, source tarball, or ????) that you found helpful? Do you use a custom kernel (Zen or other)?

Did you turn off a particular setting? Did you have to turn off a particular background service?

Can this question be answered? Is this question too broad? Too many variables to consider?

Games working fine, rest of desktop stuttering and lagging

Hi there, I am having issues with all of my desktop and applications when playing Steam games, besides the game window, that works fine.

System information:

-- Software --

Distro: Arch Linux

Kernel version: 5.14.2-arch1-2

GPU Driver: nvidia 470.63.01-7

Display server: X11/Xorg

Window manager: BSPWM

Compositor: Picom

-- Hardware --

CPU: Intel i7-9700KF (8 cores) 3.6GHz

GPU: NVIDIA GTX 1650 4GB VRAM

Memory: 16GB

The problem:

When playing games, if I switch windows, minimize the game, go to another workspace or simply use other apps, the mouse, keyboard, and the whole interface lags. When typing on Discord I get super slow responses, and moving around is an incredibly bad experience.

Example of games I have tried playing:

- War Thunder

- Muck (meme game, lagged my system despite the fact it takes very very few resources)

Solutions I have tried:

Both of the games I tried run natively and run very smoothly, but they lag the rest of the computer. I changed the game compatibility tools to Proton, then Steam Linux Runtime, and nothing fixed the issue. And also tried looking at online forums and searched for similar issues people had, and none are the same case as mine, apparently.

My Xorg logs: https://files.catbox.moe/vqibo0.log (it is possible to see the warn messages of USB GAMING MOUSE showing slow response)

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Edit: fixing some words

Little help with Wasteland 3

Hey, hey.

Here my problem. Yesterday I was playing Wasteland 3 and today it just doesn't start. I have already verified the integrity of the game files and also the permissions to access. All I did was add portraits for the characters and when the game didn't start, I deleted them .-.

The last option will be to reinstall the game, so if anyone knows something about this and communicates it to me, I would be very grateful

PD: the game runs natively, when I try to use proton the game gets bug

Low FPS, high input lag on CSGO on pop os 21.04

I am on pop os 21.04 with nvidia 470.63.01, on a dell 5577 with a gtx 1050 and the i7-7700HQ, connected to a 165hz display with my laptop monitor off. (Over HDMI 1.4 but 1280x960 165hz works on HDMI due to lower res)

I have verified the game is running on the nvidia gpu using nvtop, and I am on official nvidia drivers not nouveau. I verified my cpu is at the correct clockspeeds (same as on windows), and all my temperatures are in check. nvtop shows the gpu boosting correctly to 1680+ Mhz as well. VSync is disabled, and the game is in fullscreen mode.

While in front of players, I get 80-90 fps and 110 fps while staring at a wall (1280x960 stretched all low). With input var at around 3-8.

In comparison I get 160-180 fps usually and 250+ fps while staring at a wall in windows. With input var always below 1.

Things I have tried:

1) Running with and without my launch params and exec file

2) I tried using gamemode, but csgo says its started in untrusted mode (and aim_botz showed 70-80 fps) so clearly this also was not working.

Two observations that may not mean anything:

ALT-TABing is instantaneous for some reason (unlike in windows where it takes a second)

fonts around the fps and other readings when net_graph is enabled are a little blurry and distorted.

I've also been through numerous other threads such as this one: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/ewnryj/cs_go_super_low_fps_pop_os_1910/ without finding any working solution

Need to update from OSX 10.11.6, concerned that updating will break.

So im on mac osx 10.11.6, and i need to update to a later MacOS version as it is starting to get too old and unsupported. I was thinking about updating to high sierra 10.13 but I am concerned that doing so will cause my existing ports to break, some of which, to the best of my knowledge, are no longer hosted anywhere online (such as my JPOG port).

I dont understand how wine ports work, for the most part these were downloaded via YouTube video links/torrents, so if anything breaks im not gonna be able to figure out what did and how to fix it.

Can I bundle a specific build of WINE together with a prefix so that I can easily transfer it between machines?

What I'd like to do is take a self-contained build of WINE, package it together with a prefix containing a program I want to run with that build, then set up a little script to run the program in that specific prefix on that specific copy of WINE, preferably all in a portable, distro-agnostic format.

Why do I want to do this? One reason is that I want to make it easier to take my Windows programs with me when I distro hop, or use different machines. Another reason is that I just really like the concept of portable applications, which is something you see a lot more on Windows than on Linux. Yet another reason is that Wine is weird, and sometimes programs run better on specific builds than others.

I suppose you can sort of do this with with Lutris or PlayOnLinux, but I've used both of these programs enough to know that they are a complete PITA, and I'd rather come up with a more elegant solution that doesn't rely on external programs.

Error running Yume 2kki

I'm trying to run Yume 2kki on Mac OS X Big Sur 11.4. I followed the linked tutorial, but clicking test run gives me the error message in the image. What does this mean? Is there a way around it or am I SOL? I've used the same method on older versions of Wine and OS X to run other Japanese RPG maker games in the past and had no problems.

Help needed to find a linux based gaming os for my potato pc.

Hi everyone, I want to play minecraft in my potato pc. It's a dell inspiron n5050 with intel i3 3rd generation processor, intergrated graphics and 4gb ram. Currently i have about 20 fps with the default texture pack and this goes up to 50 with texture packs. The problem is the veryoften lag spikes. I want an os that will help me to increase my pc's performance to the maximum extend and help stabilize my fps. to be simple, i need an os that will consume less resourses and isnt too bloated. i tried about 8 linux distros and still cant come to an apt conclution regarding the os that gives my pc maximum performance. Also i am a student, so it shouldnt be 100% game orinted line GamerOS.

Any fellow SteelSeries and Linux enjoyers out there?

Finally got Steel Series Engine working on my laptop - complete with system-tray context menu.

As a brief bit of background, this became essential for me as I upgraded my mouse to a Rival 5 - but, annoyingly, every time I pressed the CPI button twice the mouse would freeze. Running GG or Engine would solve the freeze issue, but up until just now I could never actually get them to actually do anything (apart from run in the background I guess)

Anyway, for anyone who's interested, here are the steps to get it going:

  1. Go here https://gist.github.com/ToadKing/26c28809b8174ad0e06bfba309cf3ff3 and perform the udev rules setup
  2. Download Engine from here: https://engine.steelseriescdn.com/SteelSeriesEngine3.22.2Setup.exe
  3. Install this into a brand spanking new 64bit Wine Prefix WINEPREFIX=/my/ss_engine/prefix wine64 SteelSeriesEngine3.22.2Setup.exe
  4. Perform the wine setup parts from ToadKing's instructions

At this point, if you close and then go to rerun Engine you'll probably find it crashes (well, I did anyway) to fix this:

  1. Create another new wine prefix and confirms it works by running notepad WINEPREFIX=/my/new/prefix wine64 notepad
  2. Copy the new prefix over the top of the engine one cp /my/new/prefix/* /my/ss_engine/prefix 6a. (Optional) - remove the new prefix rm /my/new/prefix/ -r
  3. Run Engine WINEPREFIX=/my/new/prefix wine64 C:/Program\ Files/SteelSeries/SteelSeries\ Engine\ 3/SteelSeries\ Engine\ 3\ Launcher.lnk

And that's it - Engine should be working for you. You should also be able to configure this in Lutris should the desire grab you.

The same method works for GG too - the only difference is step 7 - as you run a slightly different .lnk file to start it (WINEPREFIX=/my/new/prefix wine64 C:/Program\ Files/SteelSeries/SteelSeries\ Engine\ 3/SteelSeries\ GG\ Launcher.lnk). GG is also more sensitive to the registry tweek - it kept crashing until I applied that.

I'm using Wine 6.16 on Manjaro. I've also, quite by accident, confirmed the lutris-ge-6.16.1-x86_64 version of Wine runs GG fine (installed via system wine-staging @ 6.16 in case that somehow makes difference.)

TF2 Raw input is WAY too fast.

To preface:
Mouse acceleration is completely off both in-game and in my Linux in general.

My DPI is set to exactly 800 on all DPI settings, so I'm not switching to the wrong DPI

My sensitivity is 2.5, and normally, with these settings when I played on Windows, I would do just a little over one 360 degree turn when going across my mouse pad. Now I do around three and a half 360 degree turns.

I use raw input on both Windows and Linux, but I get a SIGNIFICANTLY higher sensitivity on Linux. How do I fix this?

This isn't the only game that has this issue, but on CS:GO the issue is entirely absent for some reason.

(If it's at all relevant, I use Arch with the KDE desktop environment)

Mech Keyboard key rebinding and fn layer customization software for LTC Nimbleback and others

I've been looking onto getting a LTC nb681 nimbleback keeb for modding and upgrading it down the road, but i've seen it lacks media and system functions key combos with the fn key on it's keycap (i.e: play/pause, next track, mute, volume up, etc) and also would like to set a numpad fn layer with the

I've seen its windows software allows you to rebind its keys and customize layers and key combos, but i don't know if that configurations require the software to be running all times or if the changes are portable, so i have been wondering:

Is there any software or utilitiy on linux (gui, preferrably) that allows this kind of customization for non-QMK keyboards? Something like Piper but for keyboards?

***

*Ps:* i know stuff AHK exist, but as far as i'm aware, this kind of software doesn't work with the fn key since it's not an actual key per se that layouts recognize but sort of a gate for sending a totally different input

I posted this a week ago on r/ mk sub, but i got no answer and then got my post deleted for whatever reason, so maybe you guy could help me

Best SSD storage solution?

Alright, so I'm not really sure how I got into this mess, but my rig currently consists of these SSDs:

  • 2TB NVMe SSD
  • 1TB NVMe SSD (PCI-E 4.0) (Windows install)
  • 1TB SATA SSD (empty)
  • 500GB SATA SSD
  • 250GB SATA SSD (Linux install)

I've been distributing data among them as to not keep any of them full, but it's getting annoying to manage.

Basically, I'm wondering what is the best way to kind of merge them together. In my ideal scenario, I would partition the 1TB NVMe (which is the faster one) to host both the Windows and Linux installs, and then merge everything else together into one "Big Bertha" for games/media/etc. I've been keeping games in the 2TB NVMe for speeds, but to be honest I don't notice much of a difference in loading times between games installed on it versus games installed on the SATA SSDs.

I've been looking into RAID setups, but I'm not sure if they actually support many drives of different sizes, and I don't even know if SATA and NVMe SSDs would play together nicely in a setup like this.

Another aspect in this case would be the filesystem, because I want "Big Bertha" to be accessible from both Windows and Linux, including games.

Is there a kind soul who could point me to an ideal solution here?

Razer blade 15 (2018 I believe) Max Q 2070 battery life with gaming

Hi all,
I am considering getting a Razer blade 15 with a 2070 in it at some point. Do you think the battery life would be okay ? Also is it possible to be able to turn off the gpu portion or give it less power so that I can get a better battery life if Im not gaming. My goal is to be able to get the most battery life out of it.

Your help is appreciated.

GTA V won't launch on Ubuntu Steam

Hi! When I try to launch GTA V on Zorin OS 16 (Ubuntu 20.04), the prompt for selecting 'Story mode' or 'GTA Online' appears normally; following a screen asking me to copy the license key. But when I click 'Play' nothing happens and Steam shows the game as not running.

I've already tried with Proton 6.3-6 and Proton Experimental and both of them yields the same result.

Other games work normally.

Steam Linux Bug.

All of these problems started happening after steam was updated to the latest version yesterday. I reinstalled my OS manjaro, but all of my steam games were on another drive. Installed 'steam-manjaro'. Steam didn't recognise the GTA 5 game as installed (even though it was) and showed a greyed out install button. Tried everything : reboot, reinstalling steam, even deleting the game files completely doesn't help, the greyed out install button persists.

System :-

Ryzen 5 3500 ,Nvidia GTX 1650 , 16 GB RAM

Manjaro - 5.14 kernel

IMO the best multiplayer game with native Linux support, is for the first time, not a Valve game.

Its Splitgate.

Just my opinion, but for the longest time, the only multiplayer games with native Linux support, that I felt were worth their salt, is CSGO, Dota, and TF2.

Disclaimer, not big into Turn Based Strategy, so I know there are some awesome games in that genre which many could consider better than Valve's offereings.

Anyways, I think Splitgate is amazing, and it supports Linux natively. Have not been this excited about a game in many years!!!

All my Steam games (both native and Proton/DXVK) recompile shaders every single time I launch them.

I've noticed it happening for the last 2 days or so. DXVK games stutter for a while after I launch them, while native games have longer than usual loading times. I've tried clearing all the Steam shader cache and let Steam redownload all the shaders, but it didn't help. My GPU is an RX 580 and I'm currently on Mesa 21.2.1. I have never experienced this issue before and It started happening after I received the new Steam client update, so I strongly suspect it's a bug in the new update. Has anyone experienced this issue lately?

Bloons TD6 does not work, even after trying various Proton versions/uninstalling it a few times

I am new to gaming on Linux, and already on my first try nothing works. I run the latest fedora Linux version on my laptop and installed steam through Gnome-Software using flathub repositories. Steam works fine. After enabeling Steam-Play and selecting the latest stable version, I then installed Bloons TD6 (a game ranked "Gold" on ProtonDB), but although it did started for a second without opening any new window the steam button changed again from Close (which means the game runs) to the Play button. After this I tried different uninstalling/reinstalling which didnt help and selcted older versions of Steam-Play leading the game to open a black window with the bloon mouse cursor, before closing 1 second later.

I really dont want to give up gaming on Linux, so I ask for help here. Does anyone have any idea how to get the game to work.

Thanks for your time and help!

Steam proton crashes after launching games

Hello. I've recently moved to Manjaro Linux and proton seems to just not work for me. I can play games with proton if I download them to my main drive but I cannot play them if i download them to my secondary hard drive. I've tried things such as reinstalling steam, formatting my hard drive and installing custom versions of proton. Could I please have some help? Also, here's a log file.

Wineskin app not installing on OSX Catalina

Hi all!

I'm following this guide to get Pokemon Insurgence running on osx mojave:

The trouble is, once I get to the part where I move the install folder into the Wineskin-created app, nothing happens. I get a screen that says "Wineskin is busy, please wait" but the loading icon spins infinitely. I left it running for about 2 hours and nothing happened.

I wrote a script to control fan speed based on the worst temperature in the system

I wrote this script for my personal hardware, but maybe it helps someone else.

I wrote this script because every program that I could find was only capable of binding a specific fan to a specific temperature. This script looks for the worst temperature, calculates how bad it is, and applies a fan speed based on it.

Disclaimer: This script is written for my personal hardware. If you want to use this, you probably have to adjust some values, and I'm also not responsible for any damage you might inflict with it.

How To Install Linux-TKG Kernel On Ubuntu, Fedora &amp; openSUSE Distributions

Hey guys, I've recently produced a video on installing TKG-kernel, a kernel often recommended for gaming,

In this case I installed and are still using it on my installation of Kubuntu 21.04.

The video is below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3F7Jx4yhbjc

Alternatively for people who prefer written guides see below.

Step 1. Install git

Install this using your package manager, for example for Ubuntu based distributions, use the following Terminal command.

sudo apt install git

Alternatively for Arch based distributions.

sudo pacman -S git

Step 2. Clone the Github repository, change directory and execute the script.

For Ubuntu, DEB, or RPM based distributions, running the following in sequence will achieve that end.

git clone https://github.com/Frogging-Family/linux-tkg.git 
cd linux-tkg 
./install.sh install

Alternatively for Arch based distribution, run the following instead.

git clone https://github.com/Frogging-Family/linux-tkg.git 
cd linux-tkg 
]makepkg -si

The installation will next run through a series of questions about your hardware, choose the most logical answers.

Once answered, the compiling process starts which can take a while depending on your hardware.

With a Ryzen 5 3600 it took about 20mins.

Once completed, reboot and choose the TKG-kernel.

Done.

Performance.

I recommend checking out this video by Bero Tech to see the difference using this kernel.

How To Suspend Games and Applications in Linux With Nyrna

Hey guys, it's been a while since I've posted here, but I've just produced a quick video on the open-source application Nyrna, a tool for suspending running applications, similar to how modern game consoles do it.

The video is below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dw6GuE7KI-o

As always, please see below for a summary of the video.

1. Installation

https://github.com/Merrit/nyrna/releases

Simple, download and launch the AppImage.

2. Usage

Once launched, suspend an application by clicking the green dot, and un-suspend by clicking the orange dot.

A simple but effective application, but thought it might be good to raise awareness, and the developer is really active as well.

As always, if you like what I do, please check out the rest of my content, and subscribe to support me.

A Guide for Getting Mods to Work on Linux

TL;DR: Mods often don't work on Linux because they ignore case in their file names. This is not a problem on Windows because the file system is case-insensitive. This guide shows how to use the ciopfs utility to create a case-insensitive FUSE to store the mods in.

Any case-insensitive fs will work with a normal mount however using this utility means no new partitions or virtual file systems have to be created. This is both cleaner and means the mod folder will not be limited to a set size. I have not tested this but I have heard ext4 has some way to do case-insensitive folders which may be a cleaner/more performant solution than this. I do not use ext4 so this is the solution I went with.

  1. You'll need to find the workshop folder. This should /path/to/steam/install/directory/workshop/. From here on out I will assume this folder is your working directory.

  2. mv content content.real

  3. mkdir content

  4. ciopfs content.real content

You may need to redownload your mods after this. Also this will need to be done every time you restart the machine. You could probably make a systemd unit file but

That's it! Let me know if there's any problems.

Link to ciopfs here. (Same as above link.)

Credit to this Civ forum post for identifying the problem and suggesting the idea of using a case insensitive file system. I have improved on this post by using ciopfs instead of a virtual file system. No hate to the user of course ciopfs probably wasn't created at the time and their solution is more portable as it does not require an extra utility. Also it may be the only solution for MacOS users if they encounter this problem.

I followed WineHQ Wiki MIDI, but didn't understand these steps:

If other ports are listed along with their number, verify that aplaymidi -p128:0 myfile.mid produces sound.

Where should I get myfile.mid? No file with this extension exists in the game directory.

There is no point in creating an application-specific MIDI bug entry if you have not verified that at least one other application in Wine is able to play MIDI in Wine on your system.

The MCI shell

One such application is the interactive MCI shell attached to bug #20232, comment #10. It allows you to send MCI string commands to any device. A sample session goes like this:

$ wine wintest.exe mcishell

I don't have wintest.exe in my wineprefix:

$ ls -lah ~/wine/pathologic/drive_c/windows/system32/ | grep wintest.exe

Please help me, I'm kinda lost.

Bio shock Remastered has terrible performance in proton and wine.

I recently purchased the Bioshock Collection as I have never played them, so I installed Bioshock Remastered, and I get terrible performance. I have an Intel Core i7 3770K and an NVIDIA GTX 1080 with 16 Gb of RAM. I clearly surpass the recommended requirements, but the game chugs for some reason. The original Bioshock doesnt even start, so I cant use that. And yes I am using the launch commands that disable e sync and f sync. I am using Proton 6.16 GE, but this also happens on other versions of proton. Does anyone have any fixes?

Linux + MSI GL65

Hello everyone!

First of all, if this is wrong subreddit or flair, please forgive me and I'll appreciate any pointers where I should post this question. Also, I don't have much experience with writing in English, but I'll try my best :D.

I'm planning to buy a new laptop, for now I'm thinking about MSI GL65 with i7-10750H + GTX 1650. Do you have any information or personal experience how it will work with Linux? Will hardware work as it should without applying any Linux guru magic, could require some additional steps or won't work at all? I'd like to install Arch (btw) on it, or Mint, which I'm using on my current laptop.

I would gladly read about your first hand experiences on working with such configuration and any suggestions - maybe some other laptop with similar specs will be better or should I try different OS?

Wallpaper engine

Since Valve is working hard to get every game working with proton for it's steam deck. I was wondering if they are also trying to get wallpaper engine working with it. Al though I have heard from the devs that it is a f*ck ton of work/ would have make a ton of different versions for every setup. Could Valve bypass this with proton?

When is valve releasing its majorly improved version of proton?

With the announcement of the steam deck, valve has been talking about a highly improved version of proton. Is there any information on when they plan on releasing it to all desktops?

What do I do with Open Gothic after building it?

I am very new to linux and I am trying to get a few classic games set up. After failing to get modded Gothic 1&2 running in wine or Proton I decided to try Open Gothic. I followed the instructions on the git. Everything completed without error but now I have no idea how to actually launch it!

What do I? need to do now?

Thanks.

How to move the Steam library to a non-linux hard drive?

I have only 50Gb available for Linux, and don't want to waste the space on games, so was thinknig about moving the steam library to one of my windows data drives (ntfs). Is that possible?

So far I have only found how to change the directory inside the linux drive, but nothing else :/

Mass effect LE origin error

Hi new to Linux and using endeavour os,

Downloaded mass effect le through stream and have tried using proton recent version and experimental but when origin opens it'll close and pop up saying "There is a problem with your games setup please reinstall your game" which I've done go no help

Was hoping someone would have a fix or any advice thank you very much for any response.

I have ryzen 5 3600 + 5700xt and my amd drivers are up to date and so are my packages. Also have wine installed and lutris am trying to install proton ge now to see if that helps but not hopeful as I don't think it's proton being an issue

My elgato streamdeck driver for Linux has just released

Hi, I've just released v1 of my Elgato Streamdeck Driver for linux written in Golang, which features a headless daemon, an API with a D-Bus interface so you can write your own editor UI or extensions for the daemon, and a UI written in Fyne (thanks to the Fyne team and especially Andy Williams for the help with maxing the UI in Fyne), and testers/suggestions/contributors would be appreciated, the current features include

  • Multiple streamdeck support
  • Gif Support
  • Show the album art of the current playing song on spotify via the spotify D-Bus interface
  • Built-in button actions including deck brightness control, run any command on the shell, run keybinds with xdotool, and open any url via xdg-open, and these can be extended via writing own modules with the API

I will soon be releasing an example custom module which will be a toggle handler, which has 2 states, an up and a down, which shows different images and runs different commands based on the state, and runs a command to calculate the current state.

The repositories can be found here: https://github.com/unix-streamdeck

There is AUR repos for the daemon and the ui which can be found here:

daemon: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/streamdeckd/

ui: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/streamdeckui/

And as I said above any feedback/testers/suggestions/contributors would be appreciated.

Thanks!

TF2 runs much slower with NVIDIA on dedicated graphics mode vs hybrid mode (PopOS 21.04)

I recently installed Team Fortress 2 on my Pop OS 21.04 install using a laptop with NVIDIA graphics, and noticed a much lower frame rate than expected with a 2070 Mobile: ~80fps with frequent dips into the 50s at 1440p.

After fiddling with everything I could find, switching off of dedicated graphics mode and into hybrid mode solved the issue for TF2, and I was up to ~200fps.

Unfortunately, I experience a number of issues in other games and apps while in Hybrid mode using an external display. I'm guessing it has something to do with my DE (GNOME) or something running on the dedicated card instead of integrated graphics, going off of nvidia-smi and a comment I saw elsewhere on this sub.

Hoping someone out there might know the root cause and if there's anything I can do!

Image Sharpening and other Shaders for AMD GPU's?

Hi!, I have an AMD GPU, and what I like a lot about the Windows 10 drivers (Yeha only 10 because Windows 7 drivers don't have this feature), is the Radeon Image Sharpening, which in my opinion makes the games look a lot better.

I have heard it is open source and we can have something similar on GNU/Linux through some other means.

And if it is possible recommend other shaders like motion blur, or Gshade's fake HDR, or just some shaders installable on GNU/Linux that you really feel make the game look better.

I will be using them mainly for World of Warcraft and FFXIV, maybe Steam games like The Witcher, CSGO or Left 4 Dead.

Mouse sensitivity always more smooth and fast on Windows rather then Linux?

For the past few days I've been tearing my hair out trying to get a consistent DPI between my dual boot system but no matter what I feel like Linux is always much slower then my Windows boot. The DPI on my Windows boot is much much lower then the DPI on Linux boot.

For Windows I use a DPI of 2200, on the new mouse settings menu I selected 5, and on the older mouse settings the one though control panel is on a 3 with mouse acceleration off.

On Linux I have mouse acceleration off as well and I'm using piper, DPI is set to DOUBLE of what I normally use 3200-3300 switching between the two and it still feels so much more slow then what my windows boot does.

The only way I could put it is the Linux one feels "slow" as if im moving it through mud and its not snappy and responsive, on my windows boot I can snap all over the place and everything feels right.

Has anyone else had this issue before, Im not gonna lie this is enough to make me need to put down Linux cause I've had a lot of other technical Issue.

Unable to launch any Windows games from NTFS drive

I've set the whole uuid gid fstab options and all that, not sure what the deal is.

I launched Steam from a terminal to see what the deal was, here's a log of that if it helps. https://pastebin.com/K1H8M52d

Risk of Rain 2 has poor performance compared to expectations. All other games work fine.

I'm using Arch Linux with the latest 5.14 kernel. My computer has a Ryzen 5 3400G and I play with the integrated graphics, I'm using the open source drivers.

All games I've played so far have outperformed my expectations, according to benchmarks on YouTube. This may be due to my RAM, which is 16GB clocked at 3400Mhz.

Risk of Rain 2 tho, underperforms, severely. It's not unplayable, but it should be doing much better. Benchmarks show 30FPS at 1080p completely maxed out, I get around 5-10. To reach 60, I should be using mid-high settings at 720p it seems, although I seem to be able to get by at 900p, low settings, and it has some dips to low 40s at times.

I tried 720p, and it doesn't constantly stay at 60 as it should.

It is a posibility that the game just performs worse on Linux, however another system that has a Ryzen 5 5600x and a GTX 750 TI can max out the game and it doens't ever go below 60.

Any way I can troubleshoot this?

The proper way of Screen Sharing with Desktop audio on Discord (Without mixing desktop audio with your microphone)

First of all HUGE thanks to guest271314 for his Javascript knowledge!

I made a guide with the same title on this subreddit about 20 days ago but the way used to achieve the result wasn't very good. We had to create a local streaming server, stream to it using OBS, capture the stream using Chromium and then stream it to Discord. A bit complicated and not light on resources, today I come here with a better one. Old guide was on: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/p8rltx/the_proper_way_of_screen_sharing_with_desktop

The only dependency is Chromium, you should be able to find this browser on every distro's repo. If you use a Chromium-based browser like Brave the solution should also work.

The line of thought is very simple, since Chromium cannot capture desktop audio we'll make it capture a virtual microphone using Javascript and then disconnect the fake microphone and connect the audio of our application using a patchbay/soundboard. We had to do this last part on the previous tutorial too to avoid obs from capturing other people's voices. Everything is meant do be easy so follow along and ask a question in the comments if you get stuck somewhere.

First we will create our virtual microphone. So open your terminal and type

pactl load-module module-remap-source source_name=virtmic source_properties=device.description=virtmic

This creates a copy of our microphone called virtmic (name matters).

Then on Chromium we login to Discord (https://discord.com/app) and press Ctrl+Shift+i to open the dev tools, then go to console and before joining a call paste this code and hit enter

navigator.mediaDevices.chromiumGetDisplayMedia =

navigator.mediaDevices.getDisplayMedia;

async function getDisplayMedia(

{ video: video, audio: audio } = { video: true, audio: true }

) {

let captureSystemAudioStream = await navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({

audio: true,

});

let [track] = captureSystemAudioStream.getAudioTracks();

const devices = await navigator.mediaDevices.enumerateDevices();

const device = devices.find(({ label }) => label === 'virtmic');

if (track.getSettings().deviceId !== device.deviceId) {

track.stop();

captureSystemAudioStream = await navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({

audio: { deviceId: { exact: device.deviceId } },

});

[track] = captureSystemAudioStream.getAudioTracks();

}

const gdm = await navigator.mediaDevices.chromiumGetDisplayMedia({

video: true,

audio: true,

});

gdm.addTrack(track);

return gdm;

}

navigator.mediaDevices.getDisplayMedia = getDisplayMedia;

var gdm = await navigator.mediaDevices.getDisplayMedia({

audio: true,

video: true,

});

This will open Chromium's streaming dialog, choose to stream your whole screen or a window and then click Stop Streaming.

Now join a call on Discord and start streaming, same dialog will pop-up, choose your whole screen or a window and start streaming (this time don't press Stop Streaming).

Now you are streaming with audio but the source of your audio is virtmic, we don't want that. If you want to stream your whole systems' sound (which includes the voices of the people talking in the call) you can use pavucontrol and on the Recording tab change virtmic to the monitor of you audio output. Now if you don't want to stream all your systems' audio mainly because that way other people on the call hear their voice you can use a patchbay/soundboard. If you are on pipewire you can install qjackctl and launch it usingpw-jack qjackctl , if you are on pulseaudio you can get pagraphcontrol.

To check whether you are using pulseaudio or pipewire (pulseaudio on pipewire) use the command pactl info .

To screenshare on Wayland you'll need pipewire, the Arch Linux wiki helped me set it up on Swaywm (wlroots) https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/PipeWire#WebRTC_screen_sharing

To check whether you are using Wayland or X11 use the command echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE

The Javascript code is a bit lengthy so to make it always execute you can download TamperMonkey on Chromium, click add script, delete the template and paste the contents of this instead https://pastebin.com/raw/UaH5Ht08

To execute the command that creates the virtual microphone each time you boot add it on ~/.profile

Using AMD GPU overheats the system and CPU

Hey Guys,

I have Lenovo 14 iml

having Intel i7

and AMD GPU as dedicated.

I play a few games and I found that my CPU and GPU temperature goes above 97 deg I thought this is normal (The gaming experience gets choppy after the temp raise). but recently I tried playing few games using my intel's integrated GPU and then with the dedicated one (Using the variable DRI_PRIME=1 and mangohud to monitor which GPU is in use) what I found was using intel integrated game me fewer fps but the temp was very cool around 75 to 78 deg but using AMD GPU there was not that much fps gain but then the temperatures raise to 95 to 98 deg .

If anyone can help me out with this.

Exactly rn I am using "warsow" game to test the temperature and fps on AMD GPU I get the very high temperature with 40-100 fps (but after a few times when the temperature stays at 97 playing become very choppy) on the other side using intel's integrated GPU gives me 40-60 fps but with 75-77 deg only

Hi, is there anyway I can disable the shift + f1 tip popping up? I've tried launching just the origin launcher without launching the game but haven't found out a way to do this.

This is while the app is sitting idle. I run other apps, photo editing, and they don't come close to taxing my hardware unless I am doing some batch processing.

Is there a way to limit how much cpu and GPU it can use in wine?

I am running kubuntu, 20.10, the apps are installed with playon linux and using wine 6.3-stagig. I have 32gig of ram and i7-9750h cpu, Intel uhd 630 gpu and nVidia gtx 1650 mobile gpu

Steam Fix: Alt + Tab Out &amp; In Causes FPS Drop

Using Big Picture Mode solves this issue.

You can use Big Picture Mode only as a tool to run your games, while doing everything else with the standard interface.

I enabled in the options to open it in windowed mode and chose the lowest resolution, so the Big Picture window doesn't annoy me.

Note: Your launch options are also valid in Big Picture Mode, although there might be none shown when you check the launch options for a game within the Big Picture Mode interface.

How do I install files downloaded from gog.com?

I'm fairly new to Linux. I'm using mint on an old laptop a friend of mine didn't use anymore. So I looked up which games I had in my library and downloaded costume quest since I had a lot of fun with it on the ps3.

Now to the question at hand: How do I install the file? It just downloaded an .sh file and the tips given on other forums don't seem to help or I am just incompetent. I really want to play this game but I can't.

Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

What is the deal with Metro Exodus

Hello everyone

I just bought metro exodus and for my surpise saw that it has native linux support

So I launch the game and I have 11FPS on the menu, in-game is unplayable 5-6fps, I can see by the GPU temps that is not even being used, 46C in-game, something is not right, it looks like the game window is "out of focus"

This machine can run games like GTAV, RDR2 smoothly on 80-90FPS via Proton

"Cheating is allowed on PC platform"

This is quote from a post about Escape from Tarkov.

My question is, if industry collaborates on alot tech, why dont they collaborate on anti cheat? It would involve data collection but the industry already intrudes on privacy and don't worry about morally bankrupt practices (mtx). So what stops the whole industry from having a common anti cheat software? Or a proccess where they can rely cheating data to one and another?

Is it greed? That is they dont want their competitors to have better anti cheat?

Can Fossilize work on non-steam games?

Hi, I'd like to know if Valve's fossilize can be triggered to run on non-steam games.

Most of my games I play are either not on Steam or I don't own steam licenses for them (FFXIV, various Battlefield titles, Battlefront 2, etc etc)

These games for the most part, run on Linux, but the issue is shader compilation is so awful I don't want to use Linux. I heard Fossilize can do this shader compilation ahead of time.

Can this be run on non-steam titles or is this a thing that valve whitelists for games on their platform?

Dead Space Mouse-lag Fix for Linux?

While the game itself runs great and at a stable 144 fps, there is just one thing I always disliked about Dead Space: the damn input lag for the mouse.

I know theres a fix for this for Windowsno clue, however, if that still works in 2021but after trying it on my machine, I can tell that it changes nothing. The game was barely playable on Windows what with that terrible mouse lag and sadly its just as bad on Linux. Does anybody know of a way to fix this?

Debian Gaming is not working properly

Today I switched from Pop Os to Debian, and now with a fresh install of Debian Bullseye games, even native ones, are either not working or under 10 fps. For example Deus Ex Mankind Divided is not even launching but Payday and Csgo launch,they are under 10 frames per second.

Pretty sure this is a driver related problem but I can't find anywhere how to update the drivers and, unlike Pop os, there is no option to update it directly from the software app.

War Thunder performance issues on Linux Client

Hi, WT used to run perfectly on Windows but i'm having performance issues on Linux. Here is a comparison that shows the issue.

OS Windows 10 Linux Mint Cinnamon
Resolution 1920x1080 1280x720
Avg. FPS 80 - 90 50 - 60 with frequent fps drops (especially when turning camera)
Graphical Settings High Ultra Low Quality
System Info:
OS: Linux Mint 20.2 x86_64
Kernel: 5.4.0-74-generic 
CPU: Intel i7-6700HQ (8) @ 3.500GHz 
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 530
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M
RAM: 16 GB

It is somewhat playable on ULQ but i know my GPU is much more capable than this. So far, i tried these:

  1. Running with Proton which made the performance worse.
  2. Switching between different drivers. So far tried Nvidia drivers 470, 460 and 390. Driver 460 gave some minor performance improvement but nothing major.
  3. Making sure my system is not overheating.
  4. Reinstalling the game which did not cause any change.
  5. Running the game with this command: __NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD=1 __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=nvidia %command% (It gave some fps so probably WT was using integrated graphics before.)

I googled a lot but could not find any solutions for this, maybe the problem origins from Gaijin not focusing much on Linux support? Anyways, thanks.

Nvidia proprietary drivers vs open source?

Hello, initiatory I know that there are some discussions on the internet that proprietary drivers has better performance, but they are quite old (several years), so I would like to ask you about current situation, what is performance difference between Nvidia proprietary drivers and open source drivers? I would like to use Nvidia PRIME for GPU offloading (I have GTX 1060). And another question what is performance difference between Nvidia proprietary drivers on Linux and on Windows? Is there some quite new benchmark? I wonder how much there is performance drop on Linux vs on Windows with same proprietary drivers.

how to disable nvidia gpu in rog g15 (2021) without going into windows or bios?

i have a zephyrus g15 rtx3060 model and the only thing holding me back from completely switching to linux is not being able to diable the dgpu when not needed. since nvidia gpu runs in the hybrid mode by default, there is is no problem with the switchable graphics part.

but i want to be able to temporarily disable the dgpu when i need every bit of battery life i can get, like while travelling or going to class (offline classes are gonna start soon, hooray!!) coz as it is linux laptops suffer from poorer battery life as compares to their windows counterparts.

as of now, the only way for me to disable the dgpu is to boot into windows, open armoury crate and choose "igpu on" option

i'm running debian testing btw

Looking for older, but still living MMO? PlaneShift is still alive

There is a game. Nice, friendly MMO in fantasy setting. Available on all major platforms: Linux, macOS, Windows. Completely free to play, no micro or macro transactions, no hidden costs (except of emotional ones after getting addicted). Open Source.

The game was created over a decade ago, so its graphics may look a bit outdated now. But there is still a friendly community playing and having fun.

You can download game from https://www.planeshift.it


I've recorded some gameplay video...

Harnquist asked me to find and question few Hydlaa citizens. I was about to ask each of them about their favorite thing in their specialization. I needed some outside help because I forget where those people are. You can also get outside help using the handy map tool from http://www.planeshift.org .

Steam flatpak on Linux Mint isn't working.

Whenever I try to launch it, it gives me the following error messages:

"Couldn't set up the Steam Runtime. Are you running low on disk space? Continuing..."

and

"You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may no run: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 libbz2.so.1.0".

I'm not running low on disk space and the packages mentioned aren't found in synaptic package manager. I tried installing them with sudo apt install but the terminal said E: Unable to locate package.

About six months ago or more it worked on my current instance of Linux Mint but since then it hasn't so I've been using Steam without a flatpak. I don't remember what version I was on back then but right now I'm on 20.2.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

Lowest input lag "viewer" for VM

What is the display method with the lowest input lag for a windows VM on QEMU/KVM?Is it still Spice?

Latest "guides" on how to have decent gaming performance in Linux on a windows VM required using stuff like Looking Glass. This was because to get good performance, you wanted to passthrough a GPU through VFIO, but then the game would be outputted to that GPU and you needed some way to send the screen buffer back to Linux to view it somehow (unless you actually just gamed on a monitor physically connected to the GPU).

However, this is no longer a requirement since Windows 10 build 20190, as they added inside windows the possibility to render on a different GPU than the one providing the output.https://blogs.windows.com/windows-insider/2020/08/12/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-20190/

This is neatly demonstrated in this video for example : https://youtu.be/puu-iyTsZtg

With the exisence of this feature, all we would really need for very low input lag / near-native gaming performance would be a virtual display driver with focus on low latency instead of 3d acceleration performance. Has any work been started for such a thing / does anything better at this than Spice alrealy exist that I am unaware of?

Edit: Wish I could change this title, poorly worded, it's much clearer in the rest of my message

Strange gaming performance on my Macbook Pro 13' (Late 2011) with Pop!_OS

Hi, I've been using Pop!_OS for about three days since it was recommended to me for my Macbook Pro 13' (Late 2011), I'm in love with how well everything works and how nice it looks, I only have one problem: performance in video games.

On macOS I can run Half-Life one and two in a stable and playable way (60~30 FPS), by the way, these games RUN FINE on this system, I emphasize this so I don't get useless comments like "What did you expect with an iGPU?" without a coherent explanation of my performance).

Running the same games (natively) on Pop!_OS makes FPS unstable (20~40 and changes in every moment) and even the performance is a bit slower than on macOS, this also happens on Half-Life with the lowest settings considering it's a very old game,

I've installed Steam, Gamehub, Lutris, Feral Gamemode, XanMod kernel and KDE Plasma (it runned equal in GNOME).

These are the specs of my system:

Operating System: Pop!_OS 21.04

KDE Plasma Version: 5.21.4

KDE Frameworks Version: 5.80.0

Qt Version: 5.15.2

Kernel Version: 5.13.15-xanmod1

OS Type: 64-bit

Graphics Platform: X11

Processors: 4 Intel Core i5-2435M CPU @ 2.40GHz

Memory: 15.5 GiB of RAM

Graphics Processor: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 3000

I can provide other data if needed

Game on Proton suddenly stopped working, don't know why.

I tried opening Ghostbusters The Video Game: Remastered on my Manjaro linux laptop, and it wouldn't make it past the initial copyright screen. This game had this problem around 2 months ago, but it was fixed suddenly when I started my laptop the following day. Tried it again, and it doesn't work. I have tried the latest version of Proton, the experimental version, and both the latest version of GE, and the version before it that worked fine. Nothing. I've reinstalled the game as well, didn't fix it. I haven't changed anything in my laptop since then, so I know it wasn't anything I installed.

Also, are there any distros that come with multi-touch gestures support OOTB?

What's the outlook for ray tracing in DXVK?

So I understand that Vulkan supports ray tracing, so this should theoretically be possible right? Does anyone know if there is effort going in this direction?

Team Fortress 2 flickering in game

Hello, I recently started playing more games on Linux and TF2 is one of the games that I am playing, I am using the native opengl version but encounter flickering while playing (both UI and particles).I have a couple of mods like Toonhud, first person animation overhauls, an alternative medic beam and mastercomfig with these launch options: gamemoderun %command% -novid -nojoy -nosteamcontroller -nohltv -particles 1 -precachefontchars -no_texture_stream.Both completely vanilla or with these mods I will have the same flickering issue example.

I am running Arch Linux (btw) with the linux-zen, nvidia-dkms, lib32-nvidia-utils installed.
Does anyone have suggestions on how I could fix this?

Need help with a game hogging up too much RAM on Proton

Just gonna drop the specs and other relevant details: OS: Archlinux CPU: Ryzen 5 1600x GPU: GTX 1060 6gb, using the proprietary drivers and running the game on a SSD, 8gb of RAM. I'm using i3wm, so the memory footprint of my system when its running idle is very minimal.

The game in question is A Hat in Time, and I am running it with feral gamemode. While the game runs flawlessly itself, it uses way too much RAM. If I don't have the game open, my system uses around 600mb-800mb RAM and that is with steam only, but when I turn the game on it shoots up to around 5 GB, increasing when loading levels and some levels don't even load because my system goes OOM and I need to restart it.

So, is there anything that I can do on my system or with proton to reduce that RAM usage when playing games even just a bit? Buying more memory is out of the question for now sadly.

Issues with Cyberpunk

So I'm using Proton 6.3. I had Cyberpunk launch once, I got into the game, noticed my frames were low, so I closed the game. Put the gamemode command in the launch options, tried to relaunch the game, and now it either won't load or crash.

I've removed gamemode, tried different proton versions, restarted my PC. Please help.

Why isnt there a proton 'app' like there is a Wine app? With Valves hypothetical progress with proton making it work with every game, will there be one in the future?

I am a linux newbie.

I understand that Proton is just Wine + dxvk, vkd3d and other libraries so you can achieve a similar end goal by just using these things within the application but why isnt there a proton application for simplicity sake?

The bigger point of this post is the development of Proton according to Valve. Lets say for example Valve somehow achieve their goal of getting 99.99% of Steam games working at platinum to gold level for the Steam Decks release. Lutris no longer supports proton because of some compatibility stuff and the Wine app in theory wouldn't be as robust as that proton build. I've read some comments from people theorizing that valve might use the kernal in some ways ppl dont like to achieve their compatibility goal (i dont understand enough about linux to comment on that). if this is the case then the only way to access the level of linux compatibility Valve is promising would be through Steam. Which brings me to the question of why there isnt a dedicated 'proton compatibility layer' app.

IF Valves promise holds true then I think an app like this could be big for trying to run 3rd party game clients (GoG Galaxy etc) on linux. Currently with lutris you use certain scripts to get the storefront working but anything installed through that storefront might needs their own seperate script which causes a lot of problems. If proton works with everything then this wouldnt be a problem.

(yes i am aware most likely proton will not be compatible with every steam game when the deck launches so please don't waste time commenting that)

GTA: SA crashes with Xbox (compat) controller attached

Like the title says: When I start the game with an USB dongle attached for my Xbox 360 compatible controller, which just works with ANYTHING else, GTA: SA crashes. I tried wine ( 5 and 6) , Lutris and Proton: all the same. I came to two missions, Lowrider and Dance Off at the beach to gain access to some van, where I simply do not understand which buttons to press to pass those mission, so I figured I would try with controller.... Has anyonw figured out how to get the game running with controller? I tried to detach the dongle, start the game, and re-attach the dongle in game, but then the controller is not detetced by the game...

Do you think valve will make a effort to support android games on the stream deck eventually?

Im a apple user but one game I play a lot of supports cloud saves between android and iOS.

That game is guardian tales, its one of my favorite games! Ive maybe put in about 75hrs into the story.

Well I bring this up because if valve made a modification to proton. I dont see why it couldnt be supported with android apps.

It would open the system up to so many more options! Personally I cant wait to see what happens.

What's the right formula to have raytracing working on games?

I'm using an AMD RX 6700 XT, and I can run raytracing in Quake 2 RTX, with the AMD-PRO drivers.

But the option to enable raytracing is not displayed on some games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, or Zero Dawn Horizon.

Did any of you manage to have it working on linux? How?

Unable to download games on steam

Hey all. Im on Mojave, and using wine to play a windows game. Im able to install and open steam from wine, and can use Small Mode on steam to see my games library.

When I try to download the game I want, however, I never get past the Preparing the files for install screen. Seeing the game in my library also shows Downloaded 0 bytes / 0 bytes.

Ive noticed that steam consistently says No Connection on the bottom - which I suspect is the problem.

The only workaround I can think of is to download the game on my normal desktop, outside of Wine, and then use wine to open it. However, Steam wont let me do this - I get the message An error occurred while updating (invalid platform).

Is there any way to download the game outside of Wine, or a solution to the lack of connection?

Fortnite on Linux ALMOST working (Manjaro + Heroic Game Launcher + Proton Experimental)

I have fortnite on Linux on the VERGE of working but I have one last issue that's completely stumping me, at some point during the game, no less than 5 minutes after loading into a game, creative or multi player, the fortnite window suddenly disappears, when I alt+f4 it shows the window is clearly still there but it shows as transparent, in the lutris logs I could only find one error

Wine: RLIMIT_NICE is <= 20, unable to use setpriority safely

It seems like an issue I can circumvent seeing as how Fortnite doesn't actually crash and there are no bad error messages but I'm just stumped on this one issue because I'm far more experienced with Linux as a whole than I am with WINE debugging, Any ideas boys?

The broken state of... everything?

So I am about to rant a bit: I've been gaming on linux using a Windows KVM for about 7 years now. Yesterday I got my new 6900XT so I was like, how about switching every game to linux? Since I only play: Starcraft 2, Counter Strike 1.6, my computational needs are low for those games but I've a full fat workstation.

The issues I've ran into so far:

  1. Linux is not consistent on those games. I've been gaming on only those 2 tittles for about 8 years, it feels... broken, not up to the task for competitive play, maybe to burn a few hours, but not up to the task to be reliable.
  2. Wine + BattleNet don't get along, plus you have to run the permutation of scripts in a given order to have the correct battlenet and then install the tittles you want. This happens with every single game client, even steam feels buggy as hell.
  3. Resolution + Cursor restrain + Multiple Monitors: OH GOD... The nightmare, THE FREAKIN' Nightmare...
    1. First off: Resolution... it doesn't like my 165hz monitor like windows, so it keeps changing it, also the framebuffer or the compositor breaks constantly (never happens on workloads, it breaks only taking Screenshots I've to force an Xrandr Script because KDE display settings never works) OK.. so I ll just restrain the game to my primary monitor and force the settings.
    2. Cursor restrain: 2021 and every single game ignores cursor restrain. This is a feature of KDE yes.. but it can not be fixed unless using a crappy script or third party apps like gamescope (Which doesnt work since it takes for granted the display settings resolution and not my Xrandr script, so it creates a 1920x1080 "screen" in the middle of 2 monitors since the position is relative). Nothing works, and I am not even talking about working "out of the box"
    3. Multiple monitors: Every game starts on every Freaking monitor at random, I'have 7 monitors, 3 pluged into a 1070 (Windows KVM) 4 pluged into a RX6900, since restrain is not working and resolution is a mess, if it doesnt start on the right monitor I have to move it manually every time (It also ignores the KDE Windows Settings / Window management rules)

To sum up: This is why I will keep gaming on my kvm, and if this is not fixed by 2023 or so, then I'll slowly go back to Windows and ditch my arch linux box, unless this beautiful subreddit has a few tips to address these issues?

I might be at a stage of my life where I can not waste hours troubleshoting, yet I don't want to wipe my linux machine.

Does VKD3D work any better for the Nvidia 10 series cards and below nowadays?

I hope this question doesn't come across as rude or anything, it's not my intention.

I am on my way to switching to Linux full time but since I still have a Maxwell Nvidia GPU and a lot of the games I curently play support only DirectX 12 they ran very very slow on my poor old 980. From what I heard when I was testing this it was due to some missing vulkan thing in Nvidia's drivers for Pascal cards and older? Not 100% on the details but I think it was something along those lines.

Anyway I am on Windows for now until I get a new GPU but Windows is really getting on my nerves and I would like to switch asap. I'm just afraid I'd end up wasting hours upon hours setting up a full Linux-only system again only to run into the same problems.

So that brings me to the question, has VKD3D improved for Pascal and older Nvidia GPUs?

Thoughts on Zorin OS?

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I last used Linux but it's the first time I'm planning on playing games on it. I have some experience using Zorin and I like it due to it's appearance, but I don't know if anyone has some complaints about it. I know most people recommend using Ubuntu but I'm not a big fan of the distro, I'd rather use Mint if that's the case, but I'd like to hear some opinions from this sub in case anyone has encountered problems with Zorin. My main concerns is regarding GPU compatibility and software/drivers, I'll be using an Nvidia GPU, I read on Zorin's website that it has compatibility with Nvidia, but I'd like to hear some opinions.

(Endeavour/Arch) How to install and play games on Steam using an external disk as your main games installation.

This guide is made in order to set up steam games onto an external disk drive, either formatted onto ext4 or ntfs. I've written this steps in order to be the most simple to understand. Unfortunately, I'm not an expert and I can't answer any troubleshooting. Proceed to your own risk.

Supported OS in this guide

I'm currently using EndeavourOs Linux x86-64 With Kernel 5.13.13-arch1-1. You can use whatever linux distro, but this guide will cover this particular version.

list of applications used:

  • fdisk or gparted (gparted is easier)
  • nano
  • Steam
  • Any file manager (Optional)

I've formatted into ext4 format

Mounting your Disk

First you need to know where's your partition and disk you want to use.

fdisk -l

This will output all disks and partitions installed in your computer. Now you need to remember the disk you want to use. The fist column its the name of the device. For example, /dev/sdc3 is my device.

The device must have this structure: /dev/sdXY where X is the letter of the disk and Y is the partition number.

It's recommended to also search for the UUID of your partition. If you have gparted installed it's easy. Just right click your selected partition and then select "Information". It should pop up the UUID

If you want to use blkid, you can run this instead

sudo blkid | grep UUID=

Find your device and save your UUID somewhere.

Then you must create the mount destination folder. It's usually on /mnt/ but you can do it on /run/media/USERNAME/sdXY/ or elsewhere. In order to create folders, navigate to /mnt/ (for example) and then mkdir:

cd /mnt/
sudo mkdir sdXY/

You can check if it's the good UUID by running sudo mount -f ntfs-3g /dev/sdXY /mnt/sdXY . It should mount inside /mnt/. Don't forget to unmount the drive (sudo unmount /dev/sdXY).

Mount your disk at startup

To edit fstab:

sudo nano /etc/fstab

It should pop-up a window with something written inside. If it's blank you don't have fstab file for some reason.

Now, you're going to need your UUID, your uid and your gid.

Your fstab should look like this

#                      
UUID=1234567898745632       /mnt/sdXY      ext4 exec,nofail        0       0

Note: this must be in one line separated with TAB. Change your UUID to your desired one.

  • exec: execute permissions
  • nofail: Avoids getting stuck on emergency mode if the mount fails (Highly Recommendable)

Save with CTRL+O and then close with CTRL+X

You can test if it works without rebooting by mounting all the devices

sudo mount -a

This way you've mounted your ext4 device but with root permissions and read only to the rest of users. Below I'll explain how to give read-write-exec permissions

Before adding the folder to the steam library

If you've recently mounted your device and you try to add a folder inside your sdXY device into the steam library. Steam will pop-up a "read only" error. Also if your partition it's completely empty, you can't create a directory using thunar or dolphin.

If you want to create a folder. You must create it as root inside the device:

sudo mkdir Steam/

Then, in order to transfer the ownership from root. Run chown:

sudo chown USERNAME Steam/

Where USERNAME is your current username.

After this you must be able to create directories and files inside Steam/ without sudo or root perms.

"My Disk is in NTFS format!!" (not recommended)

I don't recommend mounting ntfs formats. I've never run a game inside the ntfs format.

Mounting your Disk using ntfs-3g

Exactly the same steps as "Mounting your Disk" in ext4.

Mount your disk at startup

Before editing /etc/fstab. You need your user id and your group id. You can check that by typing:

id

That should give your uid and your gid. Usually it's 1000 both.

To edit fstab:

sudo nano /etc/fstab

It should pop up a nano window with something written inside. If it's blank you don't have fstab file for some reason.

Now, you're going to need your UUID, your uid and your gid.

Your fstab should look like this

#                      

This part differs with the ext4 tutorial.

UUID=1234567898745632       /mnt/sdXY      ntfs-3g uid=1000,gid=1000,rw,user,exec,unmask=000,nofail        0       0

Note: this must be in one line separated with TAB. Change your UUID to your desired one, your destination point, your uid and your gid.

  • rw: Read/write permissions
  • user: Not mount as root
  • exec: execute permissions
  • unmask: Controls masking of filesystem nodes.
  • nofail: Avoids getting stuck on emergency mode if the mount fails (Highly Recomendable)

Save with CTRL+O and then close with CTRL+X You can test if it works without rebooting by mounting all the devices

sudo mount -a

Add the folder to Steam Library

  1. If Steam is completely black, go to Steam > Settings > Account and enter the steam beta and restart steam.
  2. Open Steam, go to Steam > settings > Downloads > Steam Library Folders
  3. Add your folder by pressing the plus sign. Don't forget to set as default.
  4. Close steam and install your games. Don't forget to enable Steam play if you need to.

Poly Bridge wrong scaling/resolution

I am trying to run Poly Bridge on my Linux Mint 20.2 but every it starts, the window is very small and the buttons are aligned i a way in which i can't really access anything. I somehow managed to set the right resolution (1440x2560) but it's still not as it's supposed to be. Any ideas on how to fix this?

This is how it looks right now, I can't even access the options anymore, because the actual button, that reacts to a click, is somewhere else then the icon, probably not even inside the window:
https://ibb.co/2ZfjCck

Alt+Enter does not do anything and I can't resize the window. To be honest, I don't even remember how I managed to change the resolution.

Bridging the gap for Linux newcomers - gamified experience

Hey Community!

Last week, World Wide Hack by Lotus Innovations has its Kickstarter launched. I had the opportunity to play the alpha versions and I find this game has a great potential, it is very stable and there is a lot more than just "another hacking MMO". I'm myself a propagator of learning cybersecurity on my blog and I have written the first impression here: https://blog.cyberethical.me/world-wide-hack-alpha-first-impression

Gamified experience can be sometimes enough to bridge the gap for people wanting to try Linux for the first time.

I'm not associated or sponsored by the developers of the WWH, just want to game to get as much exposure as it is possible, without force-advertising.

Xanmod good on lower spec machines?

I literally just heard about it recently, and before trying it for myself I wanted to see if it'd be good for a lower-mid tier laptop like mine. I've got a dualboot going with windows because it came with the laptop (keep your windows opinions aside).

I'm wondering if xanmod for example is worthwhile on a lower specced machine like mine or is it just cause more slowdown/harm than good?

Ps3 controller not connecting

I have a non-genuine ps3 controller (I couldn't find a genuine one) that I want to use on my linux system via bluetooth, the problem is it recognizes the controller and connects to it but never pairs and eventually it disconnects and I tried everything I could find on the internet, I don't know if this is because it's not genuine or something else. P.S: when I connect it via usb it works fine but all the LEDs stay lit up, it never changes to something like controller 1 or 2.

Run Rainbow Six Siege offline without anti cheat?

I tried solutions from the internet to put in launch arguments:

%command% /belaunch -be

or

/belaunch -be %command%

or

%command% "/belaunch -be"

etc... but still crashes on startup. I will be good to play offline till anti cheat will work, thanks.

Proton support in new releases

Hi all hopefully this post is ok.

I'm considering a Steam Deck for my daughter. most of the games she currently plays are compatible, and I'm happy with that. One thing I'm not clear on and can't find anything related to is what percentage of new releases work well with Proton? Does anyone have any hard statistics or even a gut feeling?

New to linux. Want to game from USB.

Hi Guys,

I am new to Linux and i was wondering if could i install Linux on USB stick and game on it. I got new PC in office (i3 9th gen with integrated graphics, 8GB ram) and want to play some low spec games on it but can't install anything and was asking myself could i just game straight off of USB. So my questions are: 1. Is it possible even though i don't have admin privileges on this PC? 2. Are there any tutorials how to do it? 3. What Linux OS should i use?

[Not Political] Tripwire Interactive CEO resigned; can we please retract negative reviews?

This post has no intention of involving politics of any sort. I suggest discussing the new law in question somewhere else.

Context:

Tripwire Interactive CEO John Gibson made an unpopular remark regarding Texas' new abortion law that causes massive uproar on Internet including social media and Steam. Many prominent industry veterans, executives, developers even partner studios distance themselves from Tripwire Interactive while players review bombed Tripwire Interactive titles.

News:

John Gibson stepped down shortly after his controversial tweet. Current Tripwire Vice President, Alan Wilson, will take over as interim CEO. Tripwire also released an official disapproval statement:

The comments given by John Gibson are of his own opinion, and do not reflect those of Tripwire Interactive as a company. His comments disregarded the values of our whole team, our partners and much of our broader community. Our leadership team at Tripwire are deeply sorry and are unified in our commitment to take swift action and to foster a more positive environment.

https://www.pcgamer.com/tripwire-ceo-steps-down-following-comments-on-texas-abortion-ban/

Question:

Can we please retract non-gaming negative reviews of Tripwire Interactive titles? Cause, I see plenty of Steam friends who put negative reviews to Tripwire Interactive titles as an act of protest. As of now the CEO in question is gone and the company distanced itself from him, wouldn't it fair to retract those reviews? I find it important, cause Tripwire Interactive brought some great titles to Linux such as Killing Floor, Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45, Road Redemption, and Dwarfs!?. Thank you!

FSR changes to Proton GE

Right now I am using Proton GE and am trying to lower the input resolution to the lowest I can. In the launch options for the game I put in WINE_FULLSCREEN_FSR=1 %command% in the launch options of my game and I got roughly a 10% performance increase in all games, how could I lower the input resolution so I can get higher frame rates? I dont know if WINE_FULLSCREEN_FSR_STRENGTH Is the key since that seems to only be the sharpening of the image.

PSA: Found out how to get current LOOT versions to work with mod organizer 1

This took me over an hour to find out, and I'm writing half so I can find it when I inevitably forget and google it up in the future.

Mod organizer 1, being old, doesn't like current loot a whole lot, at least not in linux; If you sort and apply the load order nothing changes, joy of joys.

So, for the TL;DR of how to make it work:

  • Launch LOOT thru Mod Organizer 1
  • Sort mods there, open the menu (The three dots) and select Copy Load Order
  • This load order has several columns we don't want with the load's hex values.

A good way to remove it is using sublime text and using shift+drag right click, which allows you to select squares. (This'd be easy to regex, but I can't be assed. Feel free to post said regex in the comments), to get only a list of ESP/Ms in the loot-sorted order that mod organizer will take.

  • Now we go to our modorganizer's profile folder and replace loadorder.txt's contents with LOOT's load order.
  • This is a sham, because gamebyro uses filedates for load order. MO's GUI is only being briefly tricked, and there's no direct way to tell it to write modified times.

Launching the game, drag and dropping files, and other such things that'll make mod organizer tell you it wrote the file dates won't actually do so. Don't believe its lies.

  • What you do instead is to backup the current load order, then restore it. This will cause it to write the file dates. And now you finally got loot's load order in place.

Control RTX Lutris not working

Hi.
I have installed Control from Epic Games Store in lutris but launching it from Epic doesn't enable the RTX options. Plus, it launches the Control_DX11.exe file by default. So, I added Control_DX12.exe separately in lutris and it launches perfectly. I came till this point after getting help from another subreddit r/wine_gaming which is this one.

Now the game is working and MangoHUD shows it is using VKD3D. I have added DLL overrides of VKD3D_CONFIG=dxr and added the flag -dx12 in the Runner option in Lutris. But still the RTX options in Control are not enabled. The video is attached with this post.

Team Fortress 2 doesn't use the GPU

I don't know what is going wrong. I switched back to linux after a few days of using windows, I installed plasma-meta, xorg, nvidia, everything as usual like I always do on a clean installation.

But when i run tf2 and join a match (or display 3d models like in the character screen) it goes from 60fps, to >1fps.

nvidia-smi throws information as normal:

Seeking some recommendations for laptops with GPU for WoW TBC (a 15+ year old game)

Hello, I am trying to make linux my single OS and replace windows. Currently i used Fedora + lutris to play world of warcraft- the burning crusade which is a pretty old game....my laptop is a older acer swift and only has integrated graphics. But still pulls off rather decent performance when everthing is on ow settings..

Thus i am seeking a quality replacement laptop with a independent GPU (even older ones should be more then enough)......

Steam bad download speed, with a Twist!!!

I've been experiencing unstable download speeds on Steam, but there's a catch!

I've read a lot about previous people who experienced the same issue, but nothing of that worked.

Disable IPv6! I modified the grub file (etc/default/grub) and wrote this:

ipv6.disable=1

It didn't worked...

Install dnsmasq! dnsmasq is up and running in my machine. It didn't worked...

I'm not using Wi-Fi, I'm using a wired connection

I'm using the same download server on a Windows VM, and the Windows machine downloads at full speed.

I'm using the same hard drive for the Windows VM, so it's not a hardware issue.

Now, the problem in detail, checking the system monitor, my download rate goes full speed for around 1-3 seconds, and then drops to 0 for 1-2 seconds, and then again goes full speed, for a couple of seconds to drop to 0 again and again, so steam struggles to reach the full speed of my internet. In the end the average speed of download in steam is half my internet speed, if not less.

I'm using Arch btw!

please someone help me....

Doom Eternal - Bethesda Launcher - Does anyone have this working?

Just getting my feet wet with Lutris and I wanted to get Doom Eternal working, however it's not easy because my copy is using the Bethesda Launcher. So far, I can get Beth Launcher to run and work, even without using the "helper.sh" script; even Doom Eternal downloads and seems to install with no problem. However, depending on which Running/DLVK version you try, you either get an automatic crash or a warning about old GPU drivers.

Doesn't seem like anybody is properly running the Beth Launcher version of Doom Eternal so the Internet is scarce of information on this. I even tried to run this through Steam (non-Steam game added to library) but nothing happened.

Does anybody have this working or have some tips on how to get it to work? Logs don't tell me anything and I have literally nothing to go on. Help!

Nvidia drivers causes green dots all over the display + screen goes off and on

I'm new to Linux and especially new to gaming on it. I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 and the gpu is a GTX 1660 super and have been using the nouveau driver since I switched to Linux recently. I wanted to play some steam games and found out I need directx for steam play, so I switched to the proprietary drivers (tried 440 to 470) and they're all shitting up the screen (green pixels flickering on the screen + screen goes off and on a lot). I tried blacklisting nouveau, and tried some suggested setting changes in the Nvidia serverx settings. Anyone know the fix to this?

My experience with gaming on Linux.

Very possible, but many games have lower than Windows performance and some doesn't run at all. I will keep dualbooting with Windows 10 for now and I will come back when gaming on Linux gets better.

So i recently installed CS:GO after having it and playing on windows. now ubuntu 20.04, however i am unable to reach the "GO" button to start a match, as it is out of view (down the bottom of the monitor, and my cursor cannot reach it.) What can i do? I try changing the resolution and all that in hopes of something working, but the apply changes button is in the same place.

I know these buttons are there, i can see them when i super key out.

Ive tried using the tab key to cycle though but it does not work.

any help would be great, as i am very new to ubuntu and linux.

Cheers.

Content Manager for Assetto Corsa

So i'm having some trouble getting content manager running on linux which is a launcher/mod manager for Assetto Corsa. I am a beginner to linux (using Pop_OS for about 2 weeks now. Liking it so far) so I may be missing something fairly obvious.

So basically, whenever I launch content manager using wine I get 'It appears that .NET 4.5.2 is not installed.' so I just downloaded .net and installed it using the wine uninstaller tool but when I launched the application again it told me to same thing so I just skipped the prompt and then I got this massive string (https://imgur.com/a/RT8gw1p). I also tried to install .net by just running the installer but that didn't help. Any ideas?

Issues with KDE and Framerates

So for the last 8 years I have used a KDE based DE (I literally hate all the others, so switching is not an option). Since KDE 21 was deployed on Arch/Fedora/OpenSuse(the flavors I prefer) I have been having issues where X11 doesn't always recognize that my main monitor as being a 60hz display. I use a 43 inch TCL 4k TV for my primary, 50% of the time when I boot up my PC I get the 30hz or 24hz options but not the 60hz options.

The alternative is to use Wayland for the compisitor, which always sees the 60hz option for my monitor, but there are certain features I use daily such as Ksnip to capture regions and edit the screenshots, that are not useable in Wayland, even Spectacle only works 50% of the time.

So I am stuck between using Wayland just because I can get the full speed of my monitor, but missing the convenience of X11, or using X11 and crossing my fingers it decides to let me use 60hz.

I actually use my machine for gaming and using it at 30hz is painful, I didn't build this behemoth to play games at 30 fps. I know everything in Linux is a file, so I was wondering if there is simple config file, I can just manually set it to recognize the 60hz range of my monitor within X11, at least until Wayland gets more features.

I am not a Linux master, I know my way around it, but knowing all the ins and outs is not something I have had time to learn. So any assistance I appreciate in advance.

Im super excited for the steam deck. Emulation will be one of the first thing Im doing.

Ive already preordered my stream deck. Hopefully, Ill get mine in the first or second quarter of next year.

Ill be using this device for everything! Im a casual gamer, but prefer pc because of the open markets for games.

One of the first thing Im doing is installing a massive amount of emulators. Figure Ill want the everything Nintendo and PlayStation.

Just hope everything works day one, but dont have high hopes. Maybe within a few months of its release. Who else will be tinkering with this?

wine-stable: ""gdi32.dll" failed to initialize, aborting"

I am using Ubuntu MATE 20.04 with Wine 6.0.1 and had no problems using my old Windows programs. I am also using the nVIDIA 470.57.02 video drivers. I just reinstalled a fresh copy of the operating system and sometimes anything that relies on Wine fails to load, resulting in the following error:

02a8:err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "gdi32.dll" failed to initialize, aborting 02a8:err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Initializing dlls for L"C:\\windows\\system32\\conhost.exe" failed, status c0000005 02a0:err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "gdi32.dll" failed to initialize, aborting 02a0:err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Initializing dlls for L"C:\\SDL2VICE-3.5-win32-r40031\\x64sc.exe" failed, status c0000005

It happens with every Wine program I try (not just x64sc.exe) and there is no way I can fix this. I have tried logging myself back in and reinstalled Wine, but to no avail. Then I am forced to restart my machine if I want to run them again. Strange thing about it is that I was able to run one Wine program before the error occurs. Is someone familiar with this problem?

Need help deciding between the 6900 XT &amp; 3090

Hey everyone,

My 1080ti died (after 4 years service!) yesterday and I'm looking to replace it with either the 6900 XT or the 3090. I duel boot Windows 10 as I need Windows Mixed Reality to run my HP Reverb G2.

I want to get the AMD because of the whole open source drivers thing, it's also quite a bit cheaper than the 3090 but the issue I am facing is I have a 1440p 165hz G-sync monitor and I would miss the G-sync features using the AMD card.

I'm really just seeking advice, should I stick with Nvidia and get the 3090 due to my G-sync monitor or is the AMD the way to go if I am to continue using Linux into the future?

Playing Rocket League split screen with two monitors on Arch via Proton?

Hi, so I'm on Arch and I'm trying to play Rocket League with my partner on the same computer. I have two monitors. First, I tried to combine both monitors into a single screen using xrandr (I think it worked, even though my taskbar is still only one screen? I'm a little confused tbh) and then I followed a couple tutorials online that said to go to C:/users/(User)/Documents/Games/Rocket League/TAGame/Config and edit TASystemSettings.ini and set ResX=3840, Borderless=True and all instances of Fullscreen=False. However when I tried to launch Rocket League it would just overwrite the file and only show up on one screen. Setting the file to Read Only did nothing. I'm kind of at my wits' end. Any ideas how to fix this?

Generic DS4 Controller Questions

I got one of these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RLWTXKG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_7V8P4ARGX6GCV99B0KVE?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

It seems like a generic DS4 clone controller. I'm on Pop OS, and it connects with Bluetooth just fine and steam picks it up instantly. Connecting it with usb also causes steam to detect it. The controller works fine on the steam games that I tried (American truck simulator and Scrap Mechanic and a few others) but I'm having a weird issue with non steam games.

It seems like the input polling rate is low in non steam games, causing jerky movement in a racing game. I can see how jerky it is if I look at the input mapping menu. Looks to be polling at around 5fps or lower, so if I slam the stick to the left it just jumps to full left with no build up. Now I know that this controller is no where near the quality of a real DS4, but is this behavior the same on a real controller?

I also can't get ds4drv to detect the controller over usb, although it works with Bluetooth.

I'd like to be able to use this controller down the road when EAC support gets add so I can use it with a few FPS games. That's the other thing- dead zones. Is it normal to have a tiny dead zone in the center of the sticks? I'd imagine to aim precisely you'd need very slow movements along with very fast movements. I'm new to using a controller. Is there a way to calibrate the controller outside steam?

Newer Windows games will require TPM and Secure Boot. How does that affect us?

https://www.pcgamesn.com/valorant/windows-11

Apparently Valorant is one of the first games to require TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot to play on Windows 11 when its out on October 5th.

This is more of an anti cheat thing, but if more devs push this, it could could be an issue if developers want this for multiplayer and then eventually single player.

I dont play this game, but it does have me worried. This is why I try to do GOG when I can.

Real Dx12/Vulkan games and just Dx12 wrappers

Hello All!

I was thinking that I consider Horizon: Zero Dawn and Doom Eternal as real examples of DX12/Vulkan API usage. These games should have low CPU usage, good multi-core support with high GPU usage.

Do you think that games like Metro: Exodus, or Resident Evil: Village are just using DX12 as a wrapper for DX11 ?

Hello everyone!

I come before you to ask for assistance with the game Escape from Tarkov. It requires the kernel to support fsync, no idea what that is exactly, and I've looked it up but all I get are posts about how to generally patch the kernel but not a way to patch this thing specifically.

RPCS3 - PS3 Emulator - Can not add game, but can install download games

Hello linux gaming community.

Installed and can run RPCS3. Downloadable backups (non-disc games) such as Tokyo Jungle (great game btw) can installed, and run well enough. (Extremely high bloom... but that's a different story).

However upon trying to add / open Red Dead Redemption GOTY edition, I get:

F sys_process: Failed to boot from exitspawn! (path="", error=Invalid file or folder)

Now, path = "" seems like a permission error, where RPCS3 can't access the file location, but after moving the backup files to the same SSD, and same folder even, it still doesn't boot.

Any ideas?

My specs are an i3 10th gen. 8 gb of ram and Intel intergrated graphics. I put the settings on low and installed the game but it was only 36 GB. I then tried to play single player.

2080ti fans running at 100% when in any game!

Hey /r/linux_gaming

I am having an issue with my GPU, I have a Gigabyte 2080ti OC Gaming that is blasting my fans at 100% as soon as I open any game in proton. I checked NVIDIA X Server and under Thermal settings I watch the temperature go from 45 degrees idle to over 90 degrees as soon as a game is launched, this makes the fans take off and spin at max speed, as soon as I exit the game the temp goes back down to 45 degrees and the fans slow down again.

There's no way the GPU is doubling its temp in the 10 seconds it takes for a game to open so I am wondering where this bug is occuring and what I can do to fix it. I do not get this extremely drastic fan speeds under the same conditions in Windows.

I am running Linux Mint 20.2 and the Nvidia 470.63.01-0ubuntu0.20.04.1 driver

Can the odin handheld android device handle linux gaming?

Hello people of the linux_gaming sub.

I'm here to ask a question about the odin handheld android device.

basically its going to have a snapdragon 845 inside and i was wondering, since the snapdragon 845 support linux on arm (and windows but lets not talk about that) maybe it will be able to run some light games (that work on arm) and because its linux, it might be able to run some android apps (if someone want to put some work into it) so do you think it will be able to compete with the switch at a price point of 165 to 250 bucks right now and 199 to 299 at a later stage.

Issues with Vulkan ICD loaders on AMD

Hello,

Relevant system details I can think of: Arch Linux, 5.13.13 zen kernel, 3700x CPU, 6900XT GPU. Mesa 21.2.1-1, Vukan-radeon 21.2.1-1, amdvlk 2021.Q3.5-1, Lutris 0.5.8.4-1,

I recently got my hands on a 6900XT, and I've noticed that I have to keep on switching between ICD loaders in order for my games to work. Just now I tried to launch Overwatch using radeon_icd.x86_64.json but it errored out, saying it couldn't detect a gpu. Here's the log for that particular event. I switched to amd_icd64.json and it worked perfectly (also relevant log here). I've noticed this trend with FF14 too, wherein one of them would work just fine then the next day I'd have to switch to the other just to get the game to boot. I've had to go into the launch options in various games in Steam to switch to the other ICD loader as well in order to troubleshoot.

I was under the impression that, if all those comparative benchmarks online are anything to go by, they both work at getting the game booted, but as an AMD user I can choose which one runs that particular game the best. Am I mistaken here? If not, that's not the experience I've been getting.

I'm out of my element when it comes to ICD stuff, the Nvidia one I used previous just worked. The only steps I've taken thus far is to make extra sure I have no leftover Nvidia stuff on my system.

As an aside, Hades on Steam doesn't work with either ICD loader when running the Vulkan version through proton. It worked a week or so ago. They both come up with the same "No GPU found" error, sort of the same ballpark.

TL;DR Is it normal to have to keep switching ICD loaders on AMD to get games to even work? Or is something messed up with my system? If the latter, what're some steps I can take?

Proton seemingly randomly stopped working.

Hey,

Yesterday I tried installing a game through proton (Lego Indiana Jones, platinum on protonDB) and it won't open, Steam just says "playing" for a second. I tried using PROTON_LOG=1 %command% and PROTON_LOG_DIR %command%, but I couldn't find a log file anywhere.

I then went to try a different game, Spelunky, which I had played through proton the day prior, and it had the same issue, immediately closed on startup. Since I'm unable to get a log, I'm really not sure what the issue is here, hopefully you guys can help me out. Here's a pastebin with my system info from steam, and I should also mention that I've tried launching games from 3 different drives: my boot drive that's ext4, a games drive formatted NTFS, and a game drive formatted NTFS, mounted with LDMtool. Let me know if there's any other info I can provide, thanks.

[FIX] Oblivion launcher has all options disabled/greyed out on Steam (Proton)

I wanted to play my Steam copy of Oblivion via Proton, but all i got was this launcher screen, and there was barely any information on how to fix it, so i wanted to make an easy guide here so someone like me would easily get Oblivion up and running.

Step 1:

Open Terminal and run this

WINEPREFIX=/home/$USER/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/22330/pfx/ wine regedit

This will open a regedit for your Oblivion Wine instance

Step 2:

  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Wow64Node
  • Create a new key (folder) by right-clicking on Wow64Node, name it Bethesda Softworks
  • In Bethesda Softworks key, create another key and name it Oblivion
  • Then, create a String value in your Oblivion key, name it Installed Path
  • Finally, double-click on the Installed Path entry, and put Z:\home\\.steam\steam\steamapps\common\Oblivion as a Value data (if it won't work in step 3, try navigating to your installation path through Steam (right-click on the game -> Manage -> Browse local files), copying the path and putting it there instead, don't forget to flip the slashes though :D)
  • Close regedit

Step 3:

Launch the game! If you did everything correctly, Oblivion will launch as normal, with all of the options available

I know that 99% of people probably won't need this, but i've seen some people complaining about this on ProtonDB, so i hope this guide will help at least a few linux gamers out there :)

Can't control NVIDIA GPU Fan Speed on driver 470.57.02

Earlier this morning I've decided to update my NVIDIA drivers from 460 to 470 in my Ubuntu machine.

After the update, I noticed the fan control stopped working. I normally use GWE (Green With Envy) to set the fan speed, and now the fan curve that I've configured doesn't work, the fan keeps at 0%. Even on the X Server GUI it doesn't let me set the fan speed.

I've already tried setting the cool-bits=4 with the terminal, execute the [gpu:0]/GPUFanControlState=1 command, etc. I've even tried to downgrade back to the 460 version, but even so the fan control isn't working.

Does someone know how to fix this? :(

I don't know if it's relevant, but I have a GTX 1070ti on my machine.

EDIT: I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 with kernel 5.11.0-27-generic x86_64

People with RDNA1/2 cards, do you also experience GPU crashes?

Any of you who have 5000 and 6000 series cards, do you experience any hard crashes that require reboot when playing games (mostly demanding ones)? I have been playing GTAV and Death Stranding, but also previously Diablo 3, and with all of those so far, I have experienced crashes that result in a sudden freeze that is followed by black screen and/or frozen frame with some red/black/green corruption over the frame (in a checkerboard pattern). It happens infrequently, sometimes not once in one session, sometimes many times.

The closest bug report I could find was https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/amd/-/issues/892 and even though there is A LOT of people reporting, there doesn't seem to be any progress on it whatsoever.

I'll have to add that I have been playing the same games on Windows, just to see if it happens as well and it DOES NOT. So there is prolly an issue with the linux driver.

Discord Tray Icon on Linux not displaying voice status

I've searched for this everywhere but nobody seems to have made this question. Is there a way to show the "round green led" that lights up every time I talk? On gnome and kde it only shows the default icon logo without changes. So there is no way for me to know if my mic is picking up noises while the main discord window is minimized. Is it possible to do this on linux?

The discord folder in .config has the icons for it but they don't seem to work. Here is the screenshot below.

Anyone use android emulator in Linux?

I tried Genymotion but i had a hell of a day today trying different ARM translation tools but nothing worked.

Any recommendation, suggestion or a guide on how you install apk in your emulator will be really helpful for me.

Install Proton-GE with two clicks - ProtonUp-Qt: GUI for ProtonUp

I've created a GUI for AUNaseef's ProtonUp to simplify the installation of Proton-GE.

It's available as an AppImage from here: https://github.com/DavidoTek/ProtonUp-Qt/releases

It supports the normal Steam version as well as the Flatpak version. Tested on Ubuntu 18.04+ and Manjaro.

I would appreciate your feedback!

Steam app is blank, instructed to use 'Big Picture'

I'm curious if anyone else has noticed this.

The classic steam interface doesn't work anymore, and you are instructed to go to 'Big Picture'. The shell of Steam exists, but everything inside is blank, unless you go 'Big Picture'.

Moving to kernel 5.14 breaks the steam browser?

So I use manjaro and everything was smooth as butter until I moved to kernel 5.14.

Now steam won't work in it's normal browser mode.

Looking online, the only solution I found was here, that is to run in small mode.

I was wondering is this happening to anyone else? Or has anyone has a solution for it besides going to small mode?

Thanks

Worms Armageddon crashing on kernels 5.13.13-0 and 5.14.0-0

Hey, I know that there are very few people who still play this game, but I was surprised to see it not working on my Manjaro machine. I knew it worked flawlessly before, even just with Wine.

So after trying to change the display backend to everything (Dx7, Dx9, OpenGL, all software and hardware), I gave up. The only thing that worked was the single player match against the computer and the menus looked shoddy (LAN and Single Player). Everything else crashed it to the desktop, like in these images: https://imgur.com/a/81jvmrZ.

After this, I remembered I had another Manjaro installation on a separate drive, fired it up, installed Worms, and it worked. The difference was the kernel. It had 5.10.61-1, the one which it installs by default. I changed that to 5.14.0-0 and it exhibited the same odd behaviour. I installed 5.13.13-0 and that also didn't work, but it did with 5.12.19-1, so I'll stick with this for the moment.

I'm not sure if this information helps anyone or what to do with it from here, but wanted to give some heads-up. Maybe I'll write a report on ProtonDB.

Can someone figure out why Proton refuses to launch Tales of Symphonia?

The game is Tales of Symphonia. The game ID is "372360".

I'm running Manjaro. It's an old system that does not support Vulkan. As a result, I enabled "PROTON_USE_WINED3D". The game does not start. I do not get an error message, the play just turns blue then green again. Here is log:

How to update xonotic?

It's on the pop store, and I downloaded it and played (it's really fun). But on the server I was on said it's on version 1. something, I don't remember, and I'm useing version 0.8.2, and on the pop store it said it hasn't been updated since 2017. So how do I update? I tried sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade, but it didn't update.

I tried looking this up, but most of the content I could fine was about downloading the game, not updating it.

Getting a few pieces of hardware to work

So I got everything working, games run pretty much as they do on linux minus a few hiccups.

I need to get my elgato hd60s working as this is what I use to capture my sony a6400, without it it's kinda useless outside of being a camera.

Also I need to get my Elgato 4k60 pro working as well for console streaming.

Everything else just.. works, any help is appreciated!

Psychonauts 2 asking to install Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime

openSUSE. GOG version. This is an issue that only happened with this game so far. What should I do? C++ is well, Windows exclusive software, what should I do to play this game?

I don't think installing it will work: I think I did something wrong. Just like DirectX12 is solvable with VKD3D, this very likely has something similar that needs installation, but I don't know what. mf-install is needed for this game, but not for this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Fallout: New Vegas Modded Experience?

Hello guys, I am really into FNV and I am well aware that the Linux vanilla version runs like a charm. Problem is, I really do not want to play FNV vanilla ever again, so I was wondering what modding the game has been like in Linux for people. Is there any mods that specifically have issues, or is it generally a similar experience if I use Mod Organizer or some other mod manager? Any help and advice would be appreciated!

GTA 5 running like crap.

I have a ryzen 7 3700 X and A RTX 3070. I'm trying to play GTA V on pop OS and the game does not run well at all. Every time I try to apply settings the game doesn't look any better and I'm pretty sure the settings don't apply I also get so many micro starters and FPS drops down into the 20s. I tried the current version of proton and glorious egg roll proton to no avail. I tried DirectX 10 and DirectX 11. What can I do about this?

WineBottler keeps saying I have"No connection to the internet" even though I do.

Every time I open winebottler it tells me I have no connection to the internet even though I do. When the app opens I don't have access to any of the downloads. I've restarted my mac and router a few times but it didn't do anything. I'm just trying to play Fallout 1 so I would appreciate some help.

My mouse gets locked in the center when I play games in grapejuice (roblox)

When ever I play a fps game my mouse locks to the center of the screen. Alt tab helps but can get repetitive real fast. Is there any solution or remedy to this?

Edit: I know there a solution for normal roblox games but the majority of the games I play are fps games.

How can I run a program in a games proton prefix?

I am having lots of trouble with this, i'm experimenting with some modding (which requires a program, and that program seems to be hardcoded to find the game in C:\Program File\Steam\blah\blah so I need to run the program in the prefix) and so far this is what I have:

STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH=/home/sol33t303/.steam/root/steamapps/compatdata/489830/ WINEPREFIX=/home/sol33t303/.steam/root/steamapps/compatdata/489830/pfx WINEDLLPATH="/home/sol33t303/.steam/root/compatabilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/files/lib64/wine:/home/sol33t303/.steam/root/compatabilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/files/lib/wine" ~/.local/share/Steam/compatibilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/proton run ~/Downloads/Wabbajack/Wabbajack.exe

Which does not work with the following output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/sol33t303/.local/share/Steam/compatibilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/proton", line 1472, in 
    g_session.init_session(sys.argv[1] != "runinprefix")
  File "/home/sol33t303/.local/share/Steam/compatibilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/proton", line 1255, in init_session
    g_compatdata.setup_prefix()
  File "/home/sol33t303/.local/share/Steam/compatibilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/proton", line 660, in setup_prefix
    steamdir = os.environ["STEAM_COMPAT_CLIENT_INSTALL_PATH"]

    raise KeyError(key) from None
KeyError: 'STEAM_COMPAT_CLIENT_INSTALL_PATH'

FYI this program works fine in my system wine, so it's proton it's self not wanting to run and not an issue with the program.

Grim Dawn black screen no sound

OpenSuse Tumbleweed

Grim Dawn was working fine but something in a recent update has broken it.

Black screen with no sound.

Happens with both GOG version locally with Wine and Steam version with Proton.

Screen tearing in Empyrion (no build in Vsync)

I play Empyrion (v. 3.4) through wine (6.13) on my Ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit, Desktop).

The game has no build-in Vsync, so I get alot of Screen Tearing.

Is there something I can do ?

My System:
Intel I3-10100
AMD RX 550 (2 GB)
8 GB RAM

What I also tried yet:
Launch Empyrion through Lutris using GE 6.14

Steam Arch problem

OK, right after the Freetype update I had problems with Steam--updated the Steam Beta Client & everything "seemed" to work normally...... I play Serious Sam ( all of them) & SS4 was working before the update. I reinstalled the game & applied the changes to make it run with Proton (I'll detail the 2 mods if anyone wants)--long story short, the game "starts" with Vulcan--but audio-only. I'm thinking this is still the FreeType problem---thoughts anyone?

Certain games crash with FSR

Using GE 6.14 both DOOM Eternal, Subnautica, and Batman Arkham knight crash when using WINE_FULLSCREEN_FSR=1 %command%, I can't find anyone else having crashes when running these games with FSR, so I don't know what to do to fix this. I'm on Arch Linux using the 5.13.12 zen kernel with a GTX 1650.

State of Decay 2

I've really been enjoying my decision to abandon Windows entirely; it's truly been an awesome experience. The vast majority of my games play out the box and I think that's pretty freaking awesome.

But.

State of Decay 2, bruh, ya killin me. You're like the black sheep of my games list now because I you crash as soon as the tutorial's completed. You went from being one of my long time favorites to being that ugly 2nd cousin thrice removed that just sits shamefully in the back corner.

"C'mon man", getcha chit together.

Privacy friendly multiplayer games.

This isn't really a linux question (I don't really care if the games work on linux, I imagine a lot of games are going to work on linux at one point, so i just want to know these games exist) I just want multiplayer games that are privacy friendly.

I understand they need your ip address, but when I read the eula, it's usually more then just your ip address, some of them are explicit about selling your data, but some are VERY long and try to dance around it.

They can be free or not, they can be whatever genre, I just want safe multiplayer games that respect you.

Good game to benchmark hardware-accelerated 3D performance on old GPU?

I have an old Pentium 4 desktop with an NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT video card. It functions okay (if a little slugglish) as an office desktop with a 32-bit Ubuntu derivative installed, but I am interested in testing the 3D performance of the video card using the Nouveau driver. Is there an application / game, which would actually run on this hardware, and which would make use of the video card to render 3D graphics?

TailQuest - game made on linux for linux

Hi! My name is Izabela and together with my husband we have been creating TailQuest for several years (yes, only the two of us :) ) (only music is made by Wojciech Usarzewicz).
We've been using Linux and open source since 2007, and we've made several games since then. Except for TailQuest - every previous one was created 100% using open source software like LibGdx, blender, Inkscape etc.

In TailQuest, this statistic is disturbed by Substance Painter :P (waiting for an alternative!).

My husband is a contributor and experienced user of Godot Engine - this is the engine we use to create TailQuest.

TailQuest is a game for everyone. It's mostly tower defense, but it's also an adventure and puzzle 3d platformer genre. And of course there is a local coop so you can play with a friend! :)
If you have any questions - I will be happy to answer them!

I will be very pleased if you add our game to the steam wishlist <3

Would you be able to run mobile games on Linux?

So I've seen that on some chinese linux-based operating system you can install mobile apps, i tried looking into this a bit more to see that there are some apps (like Anbox for example) that let you install android apps, so is there any way you can use this to install and run games that don't really need your keyboard? (games like Arknights, or Azur Lane, etc.)

[Help Request] dx12 GPU not detected as dx12 capable

Hi!

I've been using Wine 6.0a for a pretty long time and things are working great, dx12 is working, performance is OK, no weird stutters or freezes in Electron-based software.

Recently I decided I wanted to upgrade to Wine 6.16, so I did, but suddenly games that were formerly working great with dx12 suddenly report that no dx12 capable device was found.

It seems to work fine for other people, but I can't tell why it's going wrong for me.

The game where this is most easily noticeable is WoW Classic TBC, which has the following in its startup gfx log:

I'm starting everything through lutris, dxvk/vkd3d-proton are installed with TkGs dxvk-tools I have tested this using the same prefix as well as using a different prefix, it makes no difference. The only thing I changed was the wine version. All prefixes are set to Windows 10

Could they make wine/proton somehow illegal by the law in the future?

You might have seen gta 3 and wine developers case. Similiarly, if the steam deck and linux gets really popular, could they somehow maybe bribe the law makers and judges, to somehow prove that wine is illegal? Since they got a lot of money. Microsoft that is.

Filesystem for gaming on an SSD?

I have two gaming rigs that I also do a lot of programming and tinkering on. I've been running Manjaro for about a month now and am absolutely loving it. When I installed Manjaro on them I just selected ext4, since I know it is a very good choice all around, however, I installed EndeavourOS on a low-spec laptop that I have and discovered BTRFS, and specifically the amazing BTRFS CoW backup.

I am thinking about reinstalling Manjaro on the lower-spec gaming rig that I tend to do most of my tinkering on (I test on it and make changes to the more powerful rig if they work out well) so I can try out a different filesystem. This computer is running a SATA SSD, RX590, and intel i7-4790K (the processor is a major bottleneck at this point, but it works well enough still).

Anyway, I was set to re-install with BTRFS, but noticed there are other options I should potentially consider. XFS and F2FS offer better speed in some benchmarks, but I'm not sure how relevant that is to my situation. They also don't have BTRFS' CoW backup. That said, would I get noticeably better performance out of an SSD formatted with XFS than I would with BTRFS on this computer? I am still leaning towards BTRFS, but I wanted to get some more input. Should I just stick with ext4?

I know there are other comparisons out there, but I couldn't really find anything that related to gaming that was written in the last year or so. I apologize if this is duplicate.

Is it normal to experience lower performance in Linux compared to windows?

I switched to Linux a few days ago mainly to get away from windows but also to use a more polished and optimized OS, and for the most part I really like it. The issue I have with it tho is performance in games.

Most games and emulators I've used have generally performed worse. On windows, Battlefield 1 ran from 50 - 70 fps on High/Ultra settings but with Linux the game performs from 40 - 55 fps. Emulators like Cemu and Ryujinx give good but VERY inconsistent frame rates. Is this a problem with Wine/Lutris? Is it a problem with Nvidia's prosperity drivers? Or is it that Linux generally performs worse with laptops?

My specs are:

GTX 1650, Ryzen 4600H, 16GB RAM

All of the Games that I've ran have been through Lutris and Steam and the emulators (except Cemu) have been native to Linux.

DLSS + Ray Tracing in Doom Eternal is Unreal

So I figured I'd test out the new Doom Eternal update with Ray Tracing and DLSS finally enabled, since DLSS is now enabled in Proton for Vulkan titles.

And my god, is it incredible. I've never tried out DLSS before, but I've tried Ray Tracing, and I swear I've never been able to tell the difference, I've never thought RT looked much better (or better at all) than rasterization. But the second I turned RT and DLSS on, it was like a whole new game. It looks incredible.

Also it's just mind-blowing how fast things are starting to come along, as far as getting Linux gaming closer and closer to parity with Windows.

Anyone with an RTX GPU needs to try Doom Eternal out with DLSS and RT asap.

Anyone still playing Final Fantasy XV on Linux?

I have ~120 hours in the game and thought it would be cool to revisit with FSR/DLSS as it seems to be implemented in the latest Proton versions. However, the game crashes on start for all Proton versions > 5.13-6. The game loads and plays great on Proton 5.13-6, haven't tried all the earlier ones but the only issue with 5.13-6 is it doesn't support FSR/DLSS as far as I'm tracking. I've tried on both of my machines, one being a desktop with a Ryzen 3900x/6900xt GPU and a laptop with a 6c/12t intel cpu + rtx 2080 max q gpu. Anyone else here experience this issue and know how to troubleshoot it?

GTA V, Lutris, WINE, and Winetricks Errors (vcrun2017, dotnet472, and others)

So my two week old Manjaro install got messed up the other day. Totally my fault, big newbie error, and I hadn't yet done a proper backup for it, so I had to do a fresh install.

I installed everything, got it back up to speed, and went about installing Lutris, and then GTA V.
Now, when I had first installed it a few weeks ago, I installed Lutris, GTA V, Winetricks, and then copy pasted my GTA V folder into the Games folder for Lutris. No problem, the launcher picked it right up and added it. Then I fired up Winetricks, installed dinput8, dotnet472, and vcrun2017, which make it possible for me to run the few mods I have for my singleplayer game (I have the yacht and Cayo Perico).

Everything worked so well in that first install. Then the crash happened, I wiped everything, and reinstalled Manjaro.

Got everything back up to speed, installed Lutris, installed GTA V, installed Winetricks, and did everything like I did two weeks ago. Then the problem happened. I clicked the options to install Dinput8, dotnet472, and vcrun2017. Winetricks installed dinput8, no problem. Then it downloaded dotnet472, and disappeared. I mean, the dialog box just went away, it didn't follow up. I waited half an hour for it to pop up with anything and it never did, so I closed everything, went back and clicked the install DLL for vcrun2017. I get the error "SHA-256 mismatch," and that I should rename the file and try the download again.

So I did, and of course it did nothing.

Then I downloaded the files manually, put them in the folder, and chose "install exe inside of Wine prefix." The dialogue box told me both dot net 4.7.2 and Visual Studio 2017 are already installed. They are not because I could go to the DLL dialogue box and it showed none of them installed, and of course GTA V would crash upon trying to load the game because the mods didn't have the files they needed to run properly.

I have never had this issue before. Last time I installed GTA V, I just checked the boxes for vcrun2017, dotnet472, and dinput8, and they installed. This time around they absolutely will not install for anything. I tried to force the install of dot net 472, and the terminal said that the operation was aborted having errored out with status 1.

I try to force update WINE, Lutris, and Winetricks, and they always come back that nothing needs updated.

I don't know what to do. All of this is in an effort to get myself off of Windows 10 permanently, and so I'm curious if maybe the libraries are corrupt, or something has been broken somewhere. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Lutris, Winetricks, and WINE several times, cleared out the caches, and I don't know what else to do. I'm hoping someone who has faced this similar issue can help.

OS: Manjaro Linux 21.1.1 Pahvo
Lutris is the latest version from the repository
Winetricks is the latest version from the repository

Sorry, this is probably not the best place to ask such a simple question but I can't seem to figure out the right words to Google to get the result. It's just a tool that lets you use Source Ports for certain games like Doom and Quake in Steam and I can not rememeber what it's called.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Lutris setup.

Hi guys, I've been trying to gather RDR2 set up on pop_os but I'm running into a problem. Ive done what most people say and I've downloaded the custom proton runner. Before I installed the custom runner It allowed me to open rockstar launcher and install the game but when I would click play the play button would turn from play to loading to quitting and wouldn't even do anything. After I installed the proton, I hit play and the launcher acts as if the game is working the button turns to exit game but the game still has not opened for me. I went to system monitor to see if there is a process open and I found rdr2.exe but it's status was sleeping. How do I "wake" it up? Sorry if this is confusing but I am just as confused.

PRIME GPU offloading with all-AMD hardware?

Okay, so I'm building a PC around a Ryzen 5 2400G I have and my RX 550 4GB. The thing about the Ryzen 5 2400G is that, when combined with high speed RAM, the integrated graphics can actually SURPASS the performance of the RX 550. Stupid me thinking I could save 40$ by buying an RX 550 instead of an RX 580...

Anyway, I'm thinking about setting up PRIME GPU offloading with this so I can let games have the eGPU all to itself and let the iGPU do regular desktop stuff (Chromium, KDE Plasma). Would this degrade performance? Would it work with multiple monitors without issues (if the monitors are connected to the motherboard and not the eGPU)?

Grim Dawn black screen - was recently working

OpenSuse Tumbleweed

This might be more Wine than r/linux_gaming but I'll start here in case anyone else is seeing it.

Grim Dawn had been working fine for me, both the GOG version run locally and the Steam version run through Proton. I've tried two older Proton versions but with no improvement.

After some recent OpenSuse Tumbleweed updates (I think) it no longer works and only gives a black screen with no game music or other sounds heard.

Other games I play through Wine / Proton still work.

The only errors I am able to find so far are just "fixme" stuff which I don't think are critical.

Any other Linux Grim Dawn gamers also seeing this? I'm trying to at least determine if the trouble is in Linux or in Wine.

We just released our vehicle building game Making it Home (and it's 20% off!)

Hi everyone,

We just launched the version 1.0 patch for our vehicle building game Making it Home on Steam. Making it Home is a vehicle building game where you combine simple elements into complex contraptions. Youll need to use your engineering and creativity skills to design vehicles to overcome challenges, or just go really really fast.

We have been working on the game for three years, lots of you hear helped with the closed beta (which we really appreciated), and we are super excited to launch the version 1.0 patch today!

If it sounds like the sort of thing you might be into pick up a copy!

Any questions just ask :D

New to Linux

Hello. I'm completely new to the Linux community. I want to experiment Linux in my Laptop, it's an Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G, with i7 Intel and Nvidea MX 940 graphics card.

I did some research and I am divided between two distros: Elementary OS and Pop! OS. Both of them seem very easy to begginers. I liked Elementary OS by it's interface and because it seems easy to use, but Pop! OS seems to have better support for the Nvidea MX card. Am I right about that?

I want some advice on what should I choose for my laptop, considering I am a begginer to Linux.

Also, I'm not a native english speaker, so please pardon any mistakes.

Question about optimal scripting language for larger games on Linux

im a beginner programmer, like turbo beginner, but I ma quick learner and love to go down rabbit holes.
im in one which is causing me to question where I want to place my focus in game development.

as it sits, the language and engine I choose mean nothing because im a beginner and whatever I make wont have enough of an impact for performance to be a considerable issue (outside of memory leaks because bad at coding). think basic platformers and classic Doom style FPS stuff.

but im the kind of person to constantly worry about what's most efficient. I've already convinced myself not to go hard in the paint and learn C++ even if its 2x as fast as C# (at calculating algorithms. it was the only baseline test I could find on raw performance).

on to the actual question. on windows the big guys are obviously C++ and C# because of AAA studios and Unity, plus the fact that C is a Microsoft product native to Windows. on Linux, from what I can find, Lua, Python, and Java are the main languages.
if my future goal is a larger game on Linux, like AA or AAA for arguments sake, is my best bet still C# as opposed to Lua on something like Godot or O3DE? is there a C++/C# equivalent on Linux?

from what I gather in my research, Lua and Python have inherent overhead being interpreted languages and Java is just poop at games, thus lower performance if compared 1:1. I see plenty of games written in C++/C# that run well on Linux through compatibility layers but I would rather develop natively with the advent of the Linux gaming golden age and just avoid Microsoft (for arguments sake, lets ignore possible profit loss due to userbase size).

VKD3D installation walkthrough help needed

Hi,

I am fairly new to the linux gaming landscape. I am using an Ubuntu 20.04.3 distribution and have an RTX 2080 card. I managed to set up Steam and enable RTX for Shadow of the Tomb Raider fairly easily (no complexity in that whatsoever), but now I have to set up Control for RTX. I have Control in my Epic Games Launcher and I use Lutris for that. Here's where things got complicated in my research.

As I understand, VKD3D-proton from the official repo was stopped being supported by lutris. So, we have to manually install it ourselves. But anything proton related doesn't work well with lutris now. I have to use other forked distributions and manually add it to lutris. This is getting confusing for me now. I cloned https://github.com/Frogging-Family/vkd3d-git.git but the installation required makepkg binary, which I cannot install using sudo apt install pacman.

Maybe someone can give me a walkthrough, or refer me to some source with the complete setup guide.

So the new Steam Cookie Clicker just came out and I wanna play it on Linux but no native and Proton wont run it. I just made it run natively but now I have a problem... how do I get it to run natively through Steam because hitting "Play" attempts to launch "Cookie Clicker.exe" through Proton. How do I make Steam launch "Cookie Clicker" natively when I hit the play button for the game because theoretically that should make the Steam Integration work. If I can do this, I've made a finished port and proof at how easy the port was, then I send it to the original dev. :)

This is a little game I made while our GFX-Artist is busy with our current Mainproject. It is developed using SDL2 under OpenSuse. Most of our testers use Windows, so tell me if you encounter problems.

You'll need SDL2, SDL2-gfx, SDL2-mixer, and SDL2-image installed. 64 bit only.

Gameplay is heavily inspired by Icy-Towers, but much faster. Custom Soundtrack made with LMMS.

Have fun, glad if you check it out!
