Any way to keep an eye on gpu temp and fps while gaming?

Hello guys I joined the big Linux family using elementary OS and thanks to proton and lutris I am able to play games I ever thought I could. The problem is that I have a Vega 64 a pretty hot GPU compared to others. Is there a GUI interface or an overlay with which I can have GPU stats under my eyes? Oh and sorry if OT but I'll go for another question: eOS is 18.04 Ubuntu based. So it's better to use mesa AMD drivers or should I install the proprietary ones.

Speculation: Can a mixed streaming approach work for streaming?

So we have two distant opposite approach to gaming. The old pc-centric gaming that uses 100% home stuff and horsepower on One side and the server centric 100% server horsepower approach of stadia. I was asking myself if One Can Imagine a mixed approach in which you Can use all the horsepower your machine Can deliver and get only the needed from the net. That could solve problems of latency, Power and bandwith at the same time. Is It technically feasible?

HELP - High reported FPS, but not seeing all frames?

So, I'm finally diving into the world of gaming on Linux using Rocket League as the guinea pig of my experiments.

The game works no problem, but there's a strange issue happening. Multiple FPS displays tell me that the game is rendering ~100 FPS, but what I see on the screen looks to be about 30 FPS.

Is there any explanation for this?

I've tried this on Linux Mint and am currently using Manjaro and the performance has been the same, reporting high FPS but displaying much less on screen. I've run the game natively on Linux and with Valve's Proton compatibility and it doesn't seem to change anything.

How to play GTA roleplay servers on GNU/Linux?

Hi guys,

Am currently enjoying GTA5 on GNU a lot, it works great, including multiplayer, installing it through Lutris(it's the rockstar version, not the steam one).

I got a lot of people around me talking about how awesome the roleplaying servers are.

It seems those need a third party client software, like fivem or Ecclipse RP. So, is it possible to make them work on GNU? If yes, how? They are not listed on lutris and some google search does not provide any help.

Jerky mouse in Blood: Fresh Supply running through Proton

I know there's an official port coming out for Linux, but personally I can't wait. Blood: Fresh Supply runs fine, but it's almost unplayable due to how jerky the camera is. If it makes any difference, I'm running Kubuntu 19.04 with a GTX 1050ti and proprietary drivers. Is there any way I can fix this?

Any working method for PS2 controller adapter to Xinput ?

I followed 2 guides , one using x360ce but it didn't let me record inputs with occasional unhandled error.

The other guide used xboxdrv and strangely the OP had the same controllers like the one I own , the jstest reads my controller as 360 controller but games didn't take any inputs from it + tinkered with Wine control panel turning on and off those event and js thing but to no avail.

I tried with 2 games (Rocket League & Assassin's Creed) the first works with correct mappings without applying the above solutions , the second has wrong mappings and if I apply xboxdrv fix it doesn't respond at all !!

Any solutions ?

Can't get Steam to run

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to, ultimately, get Stronghold Crusader to run on my Macbook 12". I'm trying to setup multiplayer, but for some reason GameRanger doesn't recognize the GOG Mac version install - and since I already had the Windows version purchased in Steam, I thought I'd try that through Wine.

I can install Steam just fine - the installer runs fine and installs it in the drive_c folder. Then I got to run Steam.exe - nothing happens. No errors, no blinking screen. Just nothing.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on and what I need to do to fix the situation? Thanks!!

Witcher 3 gamesaves user.settings etc Now in a different location. HELP.

My Witcher 3 install is broken.

Started the game as usual with Wine etc and had NO "Continue/Load Save" options, only "New Game". A little investigation reveled that the game had created a new "gamesaves" folder in `/The Witcher 3/bin` instead of reading from My Documents. WTF is this?

Ok so I simply copy the save data from My Documents into this new "gamesaves" folder and it works. Ok but now all my settings and keybindings are set to defaults, Mod settings are all borked etc.

The game created a NEW default `user.settings` in the `/.wine/drive_c` folder. Copying the real user.settings to this location works but `input.settings` does NOT. Changing keybindings in-game does not create a new `input.settings` file anywhere. Nothing. input.settings and user.settings should be read from the same location.

Why did the game spontaneously begin ignoring "My Documents" and create new locations and files? Why is there no `input.settings` file?

The ONLY thing that has changed since the last time I played was the Ubuntu Software Update did update the usual stuff this morning and restart. I wouldn't think that would effect Wine or game files.

Black and white texture issues on wine 4.0.1, macOS

buildings, trees and villagers aren't displayed correctly, instead are all loaded in black. It's been identified in wine's forums here https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14939 and back in 2011 and again in 2015 patches were uploaded to merge with with, now either I'm the one making a mistake patching wine or the patch is outdated for the version of wine I'm using and if so how could I install an older version.

Here are the commands given to patch wine:

mkdir ~/src
cd ~/src
git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git ~/src/wine
cd ~/src/wine
wget -O wine-dxt13-to-argb4444-xrgb1555-conversion.patch http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=34559
patch -p1 < wine-dxt13-to-argb4444-xrgb1555-conversion.patch

Next, install the dependencies which I know nothing about nor how to install, then finish with these commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr
make depend
sudo make install

I'm not sure if it's specifically for the one who's asked but there's seems to be an updated patch here, to get these results. Regardless this is what I get when I try to run the first patch:

-p1 < wine-dxt13-to-argb4444-xrgb1555-conversion.patch

When I try to run the second patch these are the commands I use and what i get:

Any guess on what should I do to make the game's textures load properly? If you intend to test the game yourself to see what's wrong, the game executable has to be launched through wine's file manager using the "winefile" command.

Is there a way to set the SDL mapping for the wine integrated xinput wrapper? (My DS4 controller has no dpad input in GTA5)

The dpad works fine in joy.cpl, though. I've tried setting the SDL_GAMECONTROLLERCONFIG environment variable, but that didn't do the trick. Not sure what I'm missing.

Also, the dpad works with dumbxinputemu, but the mapping is there broken otherwise.

Recommend me a screen recording app please

It'll be 99% used for game videos, meaning it needs to work with Steam etc. Ideally, I'd like a Linux version of the Windows 10 game bar, something that runs as a daemon. I've tried OBS and SimpleScreenRecorder. The latter requires you to name the video beforehand (rather than just give it a name like $timestamp.mp4 or something. OBS errors out when I try to start recording with a cannot find URL error.

Kazam? Would that be what I'm after?

how to enable GameMode 1.3 lutris

hi guys.

I recently installed lutris and all the packages needed for gaming ... I followed this guide https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki

But I couldn't run or enable GameMode ...the old way to enable it is to add this key and path (LD_PRELOAD="$LD_PRELOAD:/usr/\$LIB/libgamemodeauto.so.0") to lutris

this is how to run GameMode ...you must manually request GameMode when running the game. This can be done by launching the game through gamemoderun:

gamemoderun ./game

After running that command it says gamemoderun: command not found

Github repo of GameMode: https://github.com/FeralInteractive/gamemode

No luck installing GTA V (Rockstar Social Club) via Lutris. Any tips?

I've tried to install GTA V multiple times across two different machines. My primary gaming machine has a slightly uncommon drive setup, so I thought I might have more luck on my laptop with a single drive. I actually did have more luck on the laptop, because I got much farther off of the install, but then after the patch was downloaded (all 80 GB of it), I got R* Download Thread Failure messages. Subsequent attempts to re-install the game from scratch have led to the executable silently crashing, and nothing gets reported in Lutris' view into the terminal except for "Waiting on children; Exit with returncode 1". Has anyone gotten this working consistently? I've tried installing wininet via winetricks and setting command line options for -noChunkedDownloads, but I still have yet to see the proper game executable launch.

Does Steam Play and Proton work better on Clear Linux with an i7-6700 and Nvidia GTX 1070 than lets say, Ubuntu 19.04?

The recent articles about how much faster Clear Linux is has got me thinking of maybe switching from Ubuntu 19.04. Im a pretty new Linux user and have just got my Windows games working very well, and really enjoying not having Windows 10 to worry about.

I seem to be more into how well the system runs than enjoying the games Im playing, so seeing the benchmarks that www.phoronix.com had done, immediately got me interested. Not sure if the performance increase translates to gaming or not though?

Help needed with control pad.

Hi everyone, I've been trying to get an EasySMX wireless joypad (model number ESM-9101) working on Devuan (Linux [redacted] 4.9.0-9-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.168-1 (2019-04-12) x86_64 GNU/Linux).

Windows 7 registers and automatically installs drivers for two devices: one USB input device, one XBOX 360 Controller For Windows. I can successfully calibrate and use the pad within Windows so I know the device itself is not defective. However, after doing a bit of digging and exhausting duckduckgo/google I've come to a bit of a road-block; none of the joystick calibration tools I've installed register the pad and udev seems to eject the device immediately upon it being identified.

I manually loaded the xpad module and verified it's listed with lsmod:

Does Wine support (stretch to screen/aspect ratio upscale) option ?

Many old games run with native resolution with black bars in full screen , playing in a window doesn't solve it either and dragging edges just leaves the game window and make corrupt graphics.

Lutris doesn't have a fix too.

Any workaround for this ?

In home streaming wine games

Has anyone had success with using steam to do in home streaming with wine games? I've got an Nvidia shield I'm trying to use the steam link app to stream games from my desktop. Native linux games stream fine and run great. But if I try to stream a game that uses proton it's like it's streaming what would be on a second monitor.

Resident Evil 2 just does a black screen and Life Is Strange 2 just shows the background of the menu.

My Desktop is running POP_OS! with an NVidia RTX 2080.

I also get the same result when I try streaming to a laptop running POP_OS! or to the Steam Link Device.

I've tried searching around Reddit or google but not getting anything that seems related.

anyone else's steam downloading 5-50mb of files each restart?

every time i restart my steam it re-downloads 5-50mb of files for different games but each game is always the same amount each time i restart , so say i restart once , my borderlands 2 will download 31mb of files , restart and it also restarts and downloads another 31mb of files . i fear this is filling up my SSD with a large amount of unnecessary files and ill have to reinstall the OS but im unsure how to check and find out , all i know is that my SSD space is going down on each restart. any fixes to this ?

Catherine Classic and ff7 (steam release) with proton?

Anyone have experience with these? They are both failing on every proton i have tried so far.

Catherine: I can make it to starting a new game but the loading screen immediately after never finishes

ff7: Made it past the opening FMV but it hard crashes while loading the 1st scripted encounter

Thanks in advance -- I might just run ff7 in whatever the best linux emu is fwiw, ideally something where i could use the new textures

Gaming with proton VS windows (temperatures)

Hey guys,

i'm playing No Man's sky on linuxmint 19.1 using proton 4.2-4.

While the game runs perfectly fine on my HP omen, the temperatures get very hot. This laptop is only a few months old, so the fans are good to go. Is there anything to do with gaming on linux vs windows?

will the same game runs cooler on windows? The fact i'm playing with proton, means more intensive processing?

Right now the temp is 45, i'm not really doing anything, but 10 min ago it reached 90 while playing.

I really love linux, and i rather use it than windows 10 crap, but at the same time i don't wanna burn my cpu :s

Graphics card selection based on drivers support

Hey guys! Long story short. I am about to buy a new VGA (a low budget one) due to my old ATI Radeon HD5850 having no support (even on Windows) since 2015 and I want my purchase to be almost entirely based on the quality of official support the card will have. My budget is limited to a GTX1650 or an RX570. Consider light gaming on Steam and Wine with a Debian based OS (probably Mint) or Manjaro. My question is which company offers the "best" support in proprietary drivers? I 've seen both companies releasing new drivers on April/May 2019 for Linux so I think it's the best time for them to be compared "on the same level".

Proton Graphics Quality and Native Linux Ports Graphics Quality

When games are run on Linux using Proton (e.g. on maximum settings) are they visually identical to playing on W10? That is, the only drawbacks are framerate and bugs? So, do you get all the visual effects like AA and Tessellation and PhysX etc.?

Secondly, how do I know whether a Native Linux port will look identical to the W10 version? I only want to play a Linux port if it has the same visuals.

For example, in Native Linux, the Metro games are missing Tessellation and significant lighting effects (and maybe other things). I saw this in screenshot comparisons - particularly the lighting issues. But this doesn't seem to be documented. So this makes me concerned about Linux ports of other games.

Steam update broke online connectivity / friends?

Since the last Steam update, the one that added the new shader pre-caching features, my Steam client no longer opens my Friends or lets me use the in-game overlay or anything. I haven't changed a single thing with Steam.

I currently participate in the public beta, but that's never caused me an issue like this. Anyone else having this problem?

I ran Steam from my terminal and this is what it outputs - in case anyone wanted to see.

'Half-Life 3 Linux Exclusive for 1 week,' post locked by apparent Windows fan Admin as "All over the place" and "Anti Windows"

This was on a suggestion thread to Valve proper. If anyone wants to get it unlocked then good, report the admin. Have mine in. Wanted to show the guy with 'Animated Wallpaper for Windows' as his answer to why Windows beats stuff on r/unixporn he was replying to was not legit with some KDE Cube shiznit, but it was locked 10 sec before I could post. I started the thread and some, i'm guessing Canadian shut it down of all people, as they are the most reasonable people it seems in general. Sad these guys can shut down suggestions about Linux advancement fantasy suggestions to Valve on a whim because they don't seem to like Linux. It seemed like some people were saying some pretty positive things, and negative, but these discussions seem to just get shut down and mods say, we heard this before, disqualified. I knew it would be a 'hot' topic but we can't sit in the corner, there needs to be a discussion of where things are going. People were bashing a Linux exclusive as a using a Corporation for promoting your OS as hypocritical if you want freedom. What about the 99.99% Windows exclusives that promote no freedom that the same person eats up? Should I start hating Red Hat now or something too? Some kind of identity politics or something with this mod it seems.

Tales of Berseria?

Has anyone had any success in getting this to run? The protondb says it borked but I've also seen reports that it is because of DRM. I've also seen a few reports showing that if you crack it the game will work.

I have the steam version. I'm just wondering if anyone has had any success doing this. I want to finish this game but I also don't want to boot into windows to play it.

Need help with Pronton and drivers on Manjaro.

Hi everyone, looking for some knowledgeable folk to help me out with a confusing problem I have.

In a nutshell, I believe my drivers are out of date - or not right, but I cannot figure out what the right course of action is.

It started with noticing some older games (cs 1.6, Modern Warfare 4 etc) would give very low FPS (below 15) while other games like GTA 5 and MGSV ran at a stable 50 - 60 FPS at all time.

I was due for a reinstall and thought I'd fixed it by doing so, however MW4 on testing again was very 'stuttery'.

I went to upload a report to ProtonDB and upon filling out my System Specs got this warning;

saying my drivers are unsupported/out of date

(Unsupported Drivers Detected Your system's display driver does not meet Proton's current minimum requirements! You may experience crashes, slow performance, or graphical degradations. You may still submit reports and there is still value in your contributions, but your reports will show your graphics drivers in red and will not be counted toward aggregate ratings for games. Please update your drivers!).

So I went onto the Proton Discord and asked about but I couldn't find a concrete answer.

Some people told me mesa was for AMD (I have an Nvidia GTX 960) however as far as I can tell my drivers are okay and up to date;





Maybe I need to install Wine? I installed the Manjaro i3wm iso and installed that, but upon checking wine I don't have anything installed?

Starting to wonder if that's why it's claiming its out of date?

Thanks in advance for anything helpful folks :)

Madden 19 on Linux?

Anyone have Madden 19 working? I installed Origin via Lutris, the game downloaded fine and the installation threw out a DirectX error. I did the fix specified on the Lutris Origin github page and the game appeared to successfully install. However, when I launched the game, after successfully going through the intro screens, it didn't go to the main menu. Instead, it went to a screen that said the game was still installing and let me play a Play Now while I waited. That installer was stuck at 22% with no progress. The Play Now instance played totally fine, which was exciting; now the question is, how do I get it past that screen to the actual game menu?

I had a (maybe stupid?) idea to create such an online game, managed via the CLI. The interface would be like a Space Commander dashboard (vintage, green on black), where you manage your resources, your fleet, your planets, your economy etc. A bit like OGame (before they turned into a pay2win game). Do you think some people could be interested in?

Photoshop Working Perfectly for anyone?

Has anyone been able to get any version of Photoshop working fairly well in wine?

Every Photoshop version I've tried so far has been somewhat good but there's always quite a few tiny little glitches.

For example, moving around windows is pretty annoying as they don't render in real time, and whenever I do a filter or make a change, I have to click on the screen to show the change on the screen, and this gets really annoying over there.

Has anyone got Photoshop (any version) working near-perfectly on wine these days?

FYI: VkGHL can fix RAGE 2 proton freeze for NVIDIA

So I kind of wanted to support Bethesda for being on Steam (which means sort of Linux friendly to me) and bought a copy of Rage 2. But unlike other ID games (maybe due to Avalanche being involved), it is not stable on Proton and my Nvidia 1060.

I have a 1080@60 monitor and opening "M" and leaving menu crashes unless you have <= 60 fps (don't know why). Which means vsync, and full vsync is really heavy in the game. So I could either run on minimum settings and vsync on or freeze almost every time menu is closed. Like GPU lockup freeze.

Rage 2 had a patch today, that fixed some scaleform menu crashes, so I bet it is the culprit here too, but the patch did not work for me.

Then VkGHL saved the day! You can put it's .so library and .json config in exe folder, add variables like in example at launch settings in Steam, and limit fps on Vulkan without vsync. Now I have good fps and no crashes.

Real big thank you to the author!

What distro for Steam gaming?

Preface: I am not interested in Ubuntu or it's derivatives, please do not suggest them.

I was thinking of either Arch or Fedora for my gaming systems but unsure which people may have a better experience with. I have used Arch extensively in the past so am used to it's quirks.

My system is currently Intel and Nvidia but when I upgrade I will likely be going the full AMD route.

I figure any distro could work but some may have less quirkiness with gaming, hence the question.

Thanks in advance

[Testers needed] A system diagnostic tool written specifically for Linux gaming

Hi r/linux_gaming !

I need testers for a new system diagnostic tool that I am writing specifically for Linux gaming.

As we all know, the gaming experience on Linux has improved by leaps and bounds in the past year, but there are still a lot of pitfalls that newcomers are often unaware of.

Here are a few examples picked from my personal experience:

  • AMD Radeons card using the wrong kernel driver
  • Conflict between Vulkan ICDs in multi-GPU setups
  • Distros shipping with outdated drivers

Most of the time those problems have very simple and well-known solutions, but they are so recurring they make up a large part of the support request on forums, chatrooms and subreddits. Worse, debugging them often takes a lot of time because users have rarely identified them as the root cause of their issues. For instance, having the wrong driver running on a Radeon card will disable Vulkan support, but all a newbie will see is that all his Proton games are crashing, with absolutely no clue that the problem comes from the driver.

As a die-hard Linux user it's very frustrating to see Linux gaming being held back and potential new users being driven away by such minor roadblocks.

I want to help, so I am writing a tool which will diagnose your system to make it ready for Linux gaming. It will gather the pieces of system information that are relevant to gaming, try to spot common issues, and suggest fixes. I plan on making it entirely distribution-agnostic as well as easy to download and use, so that it can be easily linked to whenever a support request comes up.

The system info gathering part has been written already, but before moving on to the next task I need to make sure it supports as many hardware/distros combinations as possible. That's where I need testers !

All you need to do is this :

git clone https://github.com/Askannz/gaming-flightcheck cd gaming-flightcheck/ ./print_system_info.py

Then report back the result (use a pastebin please), especially if :

  • Any piece of information reported looks wrong

  • There is any error printed that you think shouldn't happen

  • The program crashes

Bonus points if you have an exotic system configuration. If you have a multi-GPU system, feel free to run that tool multiple times while switched to different GPUs.

The tool also queries your package manager for some distro-specific packages (Vulkan loaders for instance). This functionality is only supported on Archlinux and Ubuntu at the moment, but I am still interested about the test result even if you use another distro.

Is it true that a game update can break Wine/Proton from playing the game for a few days?

I currently have Windows 10 gaming PC and I'm considering migrating to Manjaro. I remember seeing comments where the commenter says they can't play a game due to new updates.

Say I have Rage 2 installed with Lutris and tomorrow when I try to launch the game, Steam tells me its installing an update for the game.

So I wait for a little while and after the game updates, what are the chances of the game launching successfully? Do I need to worry whether the game would launch as usual or do I need to look for answers in forums or something?

I use Debian at work and Manjaro on my laptop but have stayed with Windows 10 because of this.

Have you experienced it or do you know someone who did?

Are the majority of you using the stable or unstable Padoka mesa drivers?

I'm on 18.04 with the stable driver and everything is working pretty well apart from having less fps than I would in windows

It seems everyone made the jump to 19.04 for its "gains" I noticed the stable mesa driver hasn't had time to catch up.

Just want to grab some thoughts on these two versions, cheers

Few questions to game developers

Im sorry in advance if this is not the right to ask this, but as my question directly related to gaming on linux i thought this would be the right place:

  1. Is porting a windows game to linux means that the code should be completely rewritten?

  2. Why there is game developers that still doing a linux native support for their games, i mean nowadays there is wine, lutris and proton, wouldn't it be easier for developers to support lutris, proton .....etc. instead of wasting time and resources on porting it to linux?

  3. I have noticed many comments in some places like protondb.com about some games running smoother and faster on linux using proton even though these games have a native linux version, is this true ? If so is this a general case rule ?

  4. I know that vulkan can provide a smoother gameplay and higher FPS in many cases, also i know that its free API and support almost every platform out there, why most game developers choose DirectX instead of using vulcan ? I mean if they want only to support windows at the moment maybe in the future they would like to port it to other platforms, wouldn't it be better to go with vulkan from day one ?

Thanks in advance

Feral Gamemode problem

Hey guys.

So I recently switched back to Arch and I've been having some problems making gamemode run. I was on Ubuntu for a time and it was working fine, but on Arch, using the same method, I get some errors.

So what I do is go to Lutris system settings, and to environment variables I add:
LD_PRELOAD as a key and /usr/lib/libgamemodeauto.so as a value.

When I launch a game, it will not change to active, I check this by running gamemoded -s when on Ubuntu it did all the time.

Checking the console logs I get this error:

ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/libgamemodeauto.so.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64): ignored.

Does anyone have a clue what this problem may be?

Mounted ISO not recognized as CD-ROM

I installed Need for Speed Underground 2 using wine and Lutris and it works perfectly (thank you to the contributors for making it so easy today). However, I do not want to put the CD into my PC every time I want to play the game, thus I created an ISO image of it and mounted it with sudo mount -o loop NFSU2.iso /mnt/NFSU2 , but when starting the game a window pops up saying that no CD can be found.

I did the same thing with Need for Speed Most Wanted before and it worked. I mounted the first CD of NFSU2 as iso as well during installation which also worked.

Things I noticed:

The pop up window is in German, whilst the game's language is English (my system language is German though)

I had to use ddrescue for the second CD (the CD in question) using this method: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Disk_cloning#Using_ddrescue . In the mounted iso every file seems to be present. The second step of the rescue process didn't work at all, though.

The Volume Label and Serial Number is not the same as when using a real CD in wine-config, and changing it (using lutris) didn't make any persistent changes.

Thanks in advance!

Red Faction Guerilla Remarstered seems to work perfectly at first but has a gamebreaking bug in wine/DXVK.

All the people on protonDB rate this game gold. There's video's of people playing the game with wine in the starting area. But has anyone actually tried to progress in the game? I tried and the game will crash consistently whenever the player enters a walker (mech). And you need to enter one to liberate Dust from the EDF and make it into Badlands. Is this a DXVK bug or a wine bug? The game won't even launch without DXVK so it's hard to tell.

Albion Online: Anyone have it running on a distro other than https://albiononline.com?

Albion Online "officially supports" running in Ubuntu.

Is anyone running it successfully in another distro? Lots of bug reports around the WWW, some years old, but I don't see any working solutions.

I don't know what's so unicorn about Ubuntu.

Question about Winetricks

Hi, i tried to install Dark Souls Remastered so i installed the required Winetrick to make it work, but before doing what this guide told me, i just downloaded Winetricks from here, followed the "Getting started" section and installed vcrun2017, so my question is what happened to my first vcrun2017 install? Did it just vanished? Or did installed somewhere else? (The first vcrun2017 install didn't worked btw, that's why i followed the steam guide).

Cuphead on Ubuntu via Lutris. What am I doing wrong??

So Ive installed Ubuntu 19.04. I've I stalled lutris. And I've installed got. But when ever I try and install cuphead, it downloads, installs, then says Cuphead was not installed. Am I missing any dependencies? I'm trying to install again. When I get to the error I'll snap a picture and post

Multi-Monitor G-Sync

I am trying to use G-Sync with a multi-monitor setup. I have two 144hz monitors. I know that the game must cover the entire X window to use G-Sync, and so using the Lutris setting to disable my secondary monitor when I launch a game does work, but is not an ideal workaround. I am rather new to all of this and don't fully understand it, but hoping someone here can offer some advice.

Is it possible to use Lutris, or otherwise, to start a second X server session and launch the game in that X Server (which only covers my Primary monitor) and then close that X server when I close the game?

So basically I want my computer to operate as if I have an X server session for each monitor, only when I launch a game, and immediately switch back to one X server across both screens when I close the game.

Nvidia 430.14


Release notes Improved performance of the Vulkan title, DiRT4. Added support for presentation from queue families which only expose VK_QUEUE_COMPUTE_BIT. This improves performance of Steam Play title, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Fixed a bug that could cause the display to be driven at a low resolution when configuring PRIME display offloading with nvidia-xconfig --prime. Added HEVC YUV 4:4:4 decode support to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver. Added the new per-decoder profile capability bit VDP_DECODER_PROFILE_SUPPORTED_CHROMA_TYPES to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver. Added new VdpYCbCrFormats VDP_YCBCR_FORMAT_Y_UV_444 and VDP_YCBCR_FORMAT_Y_U_V_444 for accessing YUV 4:4:4 surfaces via VdpVideoSurfaceGetBitsYCbCr() and VdpVideoSurfacePutBitsYCbCr() in the NVIDIA VDPAU driver. Added support for creation of YUV 4:4:4 video surfaces in the NVIDIA VDPAU driver. Raised the minimum supported X.Org xserver version to 1.7 (video driver ABI version 6). Updated the NVIDIA VDPAU driver to support allocating VDPAU video surfaces with explicit field or frame picture structure. Added support for the GL_NV_vdpau_interop2 OpenGL extension, which allows VDPAU/OpenGL surface sharing with explicit field or frame picture structure. Picture structure selection by applications can avoid the need for implicit surface structure conversion by the OpenGL implementation. Updated nvidia-installer to avoid problems with commands whose proper functionality may be dependent on system localization (e.g. via the LANG environment variable.) For example, some kernel configurations may produce unusable kernel modules if LANG is set to a language other than English.

Overwatch isntalled on Lutris mouse keeps going up

So I am new to linux and lutris and have just installed lutris and overwatch (I am using a 2560x1080 21:9 Monitor), when I first booted up the game the mouse was going crazy spinning around in circles then when I switched the game to fullscreen and 21:9 mode the mouse just started to slowly go up. I have tried to set the game to 1920x1080 mode and it just goes crazy as well as creating a virtual deskop and going it that way but it still moves. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Help me not have to install Windows again

I have been using Linux for quite a while, on and off since 2008 and in late 2018, I decided to stick to it for good, but now I really need to play certain games (that run just fine) on Linux, yet I am having controller issues and playing with the keyboard is a no.

My distro is Manjaro (xfce) and I am trying to use my Wii U Pro Controller, which apparently should work perfectly with XWiimote, which managed to install after a lot of struggles. However, the controller keeps pushing up on the analog stick, making playing any game a miserable experience. Now, I know it isn't a problem with the controller itself because I tried using it on the Wii U itself and on my brother's computer (running Windows). I tried using Steam itself to calibrate it, but it didn't work at all.

I have had this issue with my PS4 controller, when I had one, on Windows at some point in the past, and I managed to fix it with the DS4 software for Windows, by significantly increasing the Y deadzone of the left analog stick. However, I haven't been able to install any software the promises allowing you to edit the deadzones of controllers yet.

How should I proceed? Thank you.

Origin doesn't display content when I launch it

Hi everyone, after I launch Origin and sign-in, the main screen template shows up (the places in the screen for text and stuff like that) but no content gets loaded, no matter how long I wait.

I've tried installing Origin twice:

The first time with Wine 3.xx (the version that's recommended by lutris) and DXVK 0.9x(also tried DXVK 1.2 and no DXVK).

the second time, I created my own Wine prefix (without lutris), using Wine-staging 4.8 and DXVK 1.2 (also tried disabling DXVK).

Any help is appreciated.

Winewindow looses focus but game is still working

Using Wine 4.0 (stable) on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS.
The only games I use Wine for is Magic the Gathering Arena (MTGA) and Blizzard Hearthstone (HS). I play both games on a 1920x1080 resolution desktop in an

HS is working fine. The game MTGA itself works fine as well, but when I open another window like Firefox or Filebrowser the window somehow looses focus and I can't click or write in the Wine MTGA window anymore. The game is still working and the animations keep doing their job. I tried Alt+Tab, pushing it onto another Desktop, but nothing changes. Still when I hover the mouse over the gamewindow, the mousepointer changes to the gamestyle arrow.

I found a workaround, when I open the Main Blizzard Hub Window in another Wineprogrammwindow, I'm able to reactivate the focus and the game is clickable again, when using Alt+Tab.

Is this a MTGA games problem?

Is there some support for nvidia-sli/crossfire + vulkan/dxvk

I've spent some time already, but cannot find any benchmarks, that compares multigpu configurations with single gpu or windows dx11/dx12 gaming with sli compared to linux + vulkan. I know already that for now game developers should implement multigpu support by hand.

My experience shows that lutris/proton performance is good enough. But is there on this forum someone who has something like 2x2080 geforce to make some tests or tell about your impressions? There is nothing modern on phoronix for example. Is the multigpu support in linux still dead?

What's the deal with Native ports?

I switched my main machine to Linux a few weeks ago. I play Civ 6 with my friends (all Windows gamers), and get a desync and loading screen after every turn. Today I decided to play Borderlands 2 with a friend, game versions are not the same. Had to run the Windows version using Proton in order to play coop.

What's even the point of having native ports? I know a lot of people will disagree for ethical reasons (and they're not wrong), but I'd rather have Civ 6 Windows running with proton at this point...

Steam In Home Streaming with Lutris kinda works!

I was looking for a in home streaming solution for a Linux host and unfortunately nothing I could find supported streaming with a Linux host. So I was like to hell with it and thought about adding a Lutris game to steam since you can create desktop files with Lutris. That didn't work but I remember the notepad trick for Battlefield V ... so I added a launcher for Lutris and alas I could launch games with Lutris over in home streaming! The only weirdness I saw was that if you're using a virtual desktop in Wine, the mouse sometimes loses its capture. But if it's a regular full screen game it works well enough! I tried both BF V and Assassin's Creed Odyssey running on Linux on a Linux client.

I've made a few edits to my Vortex Lutris installer and now it can automatically detect and manage the following games:

  • TESV: Skyrim
  • TESIV: Oblivion
  • Fallout 4
  • Fallout 3 - Game of the Year Edition
  • Fallout 3
  • Fallout New Vegas
  • Morrowind

Currently, the installer on lutris.net is waiting for moderation, but you can download it here and install it manually with the command "lutris -i ~/Downloads/vortex.yml" without quotes.

Out of all the supported games only Skyrim Special Edition was fully tested, so if you try it out with another one from the list please let me know how it went.

In case of any questions, ask me here. Remember to also check the GitHub repository for detailed information on the installer.

Feel free to open any issues on the GitHub repository in case something did not go as you expected.

Advice for Lutris &amp; FPS Limiter

Hey all,

I'm currently running Kubuntu 19.04 with the NVIDIA 430.09 drivers. Lutris 0.52 is installed and was used to install League of Legends (with the recent D9VK installer). Everything installed and works fine for the exception of vsync not working. I've got vsync (and gsync) enabled in the nvidia settings, as well as the game itself, but the game isn't syncing to my monitors refresh rate.

Now, I learned of libstrangle and it seems that, as of Lutris 0.5.0, there is a flag for fps limiting that is possible (as long as libstrangle is installed).

So I wanted to confirm what is the appropriate flag to use is. At the moment, i've set FPS_LIMIT to 75 under System tab - Environmental Variables.

The above didn't work but assuming it is correct, the issue could stem from the fact that the executable that is set to run is the launcher (LeagueClient.exe). However, when a map actually loads up, it's the League of Legends.exe that runs. So it is possible to edit the runner so the settings also apply to all game .exe's involved?

Cheers everyone!

Blizzard Agent fails during battle.net install through Lutris

Im trying to get battlenet installed and working on my Linux Mint PC, but the installer gives me a Battlenet Agent error. I followed this DXVK installation guide, installed everything as directed, including all dependancies, wine staging, wine tricks etc... I then tried to install the launcher through the Lutris app.

Unfortunately the install gets stuck at about 50%. I tried installing again on a different drive (in case my main drive was NTFS) but I get the same error.

Here are the installation logs. I would really appreciate some advice, thanks!

Gnome: Keep fullscreen game in focus

Hello Linux Gamers,

My question is (I think) specific to Gnome. I run a dual screen build, and I love to have my fullscreen game on the left screen, my browser to the right. I will often alt-tab between both.

Problem: With gnome, alt-tabing will automatically reduce the fullscreen window. I do not want this behavior, and I haven't found a satisfying solution yet.

The common solution is to export "SDL_VIDEO_MINIMIZE_ON_FOCUS_LOSS=0". That doesn't work (at least not on all games).

Is there any way to stop Gnome from automatically reducing my fullscreen windows?

Linux_Gaming Online Clans &amp; New Friends

A few days ago I started a thread to see if there was any interest in members of /r/Linux_Gaming who play League of Legends, CS:GO, Overwatch, DOTA2, and other titles and if there was any interest of avid users of this subreddit to create a clan on League of Legends, or get some games going, play together and interact on more of a level then threads in the sub and talking about the games we play, when a lot of those games are the same games.

It seemed to have taken quite and interest, and I'd gladly keep this up to date and continue to add new users and information to this topic rather than having to keep making updates if there is interest from one of the mods in pinning this post. /u/Chun /u/PencilAbuser /u/johndrinkwater /u/uoou /u/monolalia

Does anyone know of an alternative to xte that works with games?

I'm working a small tool that uses xbindkeys to rebind extra mouse buttons to keystrokes when you run games that do not support buttons beyond the standard left, right, and middle buttons. It's just a shell script that loads a specific profile when invoked, runs the command you passed through it, then kills xbindkeys once your game closes.

Everything works great except games like UT99 seem to be ignoring keystrokes emitted by xte.

Anyone able to get Lossless Scaling running on Linux?

Used this thing to scale up my emulator games on Windows, but since I've switched to Linux I've been looking for a way to get it running. Was hoping someone knew how to get it running, or knew an alternative program. I've tried running it using WINE and Lutris, but I don't really know what I'm doing so I haven't had luck with it.

05/12/2019 04:25:57 CEST

Which is generally better: Lutris, PlayonLinux or vanilla Wine ?

I'm on Win 10 and thinking of transition (NO dual boot) , my biggest interest with gaming is emulation and luckily every emulator I use is multi-platform (except Nox for android but that has 1000 alternatives).

My only obstacle to Linux is the compatibility layer for Win. apps, I have no problem sacrificing some PC games for a better system but reading through guides and posts I'm overwhelmed by tons of varying experiences , Lutris is bad , Lutris is decent , PoL is obsolete , vanilla Wine is better , vanilla Wine is experimental and not user-friendly , etc.....

I have read the migration thread but it didn't answer the title question , just left the door open with (Choose what you like) which doesn't declare a winner !

Is there a pretty consistent and straightforward answer for this ?

Heroes of Newerth (HoN) is still functional with Intel Mesa (not with Nvidia proprietary) on Ubuntu 18.10+


Official Linux and Mac support for Heroes of Newerth was dropped in December 2018 but those versions remained available for download via hidden URLs. As of Ubuntu Mate 18.04, I was able to install, update and run the game with my GeForce 940M GPU (Nvidia Optimus).


My discovery;

When I attempted to give it another try to see if the game is still functional on Ubuntu Mate 18.10 with Nvidia proprietary drivers, I found out that the game fails to launch with a libcairo error.

$ LC_ALL=C ./hon.sh
./hon-x86_64: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcairo.so.2: undefined symbol: FT_Get_Var_Design_Coordinates

After searching a bit, I found a guide that suggests removing ~/HoN/libs-x86_64/libfreetype.so.6. Doing so causes a weird segmentation fault:

$ LC_ALL=C ./hon.sh
warning: The VAD has been replaced by a hack pending a complete rewrite
Crash log saved as '~/.Heroes of Newerth/game/crash_4.7.5.0_01.log'
Segmentation fault

However, when I switch to integrated Intel GPU which uses Mesa drivers, it's entirely a different story. The game still crashes with the same libcairo error if libfreetype.so.6 is in place. But if I remove it, it launches, updates and runs just fine. Despite being unsupported for months, I am able to update the game from v4.7.3.1 to v4.7.5; it's able to play the game with other people just fine. Though, the console shows the same warning with no crash or segfault;

$ LC_ALL=C ./hon.sh
warning: The VAD has been replaced by a hack pending a complete rewrite

Though it's unfortunate that the game no longer works with Nvidia proprietary drivers, it's nice to have it functional with Mesa drivers. I believe it should also works with AMD Mesa drivers.

Steam Proton all games crashes when I use GPU

I am trying to play games with steam proton which uses wine. I have a Nvidia optimus laptop, gtx 1060, runing Ubuntu 19. Nvidia driver is 418. If I disable the nvidia card all games runs fine on the intel processor. If I enable the nvidia card, no game starts up, only a short black screen and then crash. I cannot find anyone else having this problem. I tried generating a steam log, but it is far too long not understand anything.

How to associate file to Wine (WineBottler) app?


I have MacOS Mojave. Successfully installed my favourite windows program IrfanView to open images.

Used a WineBottler for that. Now I can open IrfanView.app and open images in it without problem.

But I would like to associate .JPG and other image files to open with that .app. I can see it in "Open with..", but it says this problem:

The document 37.jpg could not be opened. wine cannot open files in the JPEG image format.

I guess there could be done some settings in Wine to tell it to open this extension in IrfanView. But how? Any clues please?

(sorry that it is not really gaming related, but I did not found better subreddit)

Update on Freesync multimonitor support with amdgpu?

Follow up on my previous post:


So now that the amdgpu has Freesync support in Linux 5.0 it would seem it has the same limitations as AMDGPU-PRO, in that if you have any other displays connected that don't support Freesync it just gets disabled completely. Will Wayland ever support Freesync with multiple monitors attached or should I just accept that if I want something like this I'll have to stick with Windows? The limitations of Xorg are really starting to wear thin.

(Though being able to send custom resolutions for CRTs is nice and I doubt Wayland will support anything like that for a long time)

Clone Hero - No Sound

Hello Reddit!

The title pretty much explains what the problem is and my question is if someone know if there is a simple fix for this. I am running KDE with pulse audio and the game doesn't even show up as an application where it is possible to change output device.

The game seems to run fine except there's no sound. However, when I start the game via the terminal it says that libbass_fx.so cannot be preloaded. I do not know if this problem is related to the loss of sound, but the package seems to be related to sound.

I am running Arch linux and I tried to install libbass_fx and it didn't make any difference.

The output from the terminal when starting clone hero is provided below.

Pandemic Express Adopts EAC (No longer runs with SteamPlay)

Man, I put some time into this game and I'm a little upset. I got it for free since I was doing the alpha testing, and all I have to say is: it was fun while it lasted. I don't blame the developer of course, but figured the talk about EAC made this relevant. Sad to see it go. Also, I mentioned this on the community discord and got flamed for us representing "0.000001% of the gaming world".

Can't Install Winetricks.

First and foremost, I'm not very good at using computers. So if say something stupid then forgive me.

I can't seem to install winetricks. Im trying to run the visual novel, White Album 2. These are the steps I'm following: https://todokanaitl.github.io/wa2-wine/. Every time I type in copy and paste the command to install them nothing happens. I then type in various winetrick commands in my console and every time it says "-bash: winetricks: command not found"

Can someone please help me install it, from beginning to end?

Run DOS games on Steam through native Linux DOSBox


This tiny project is for people, like me, who think running DOS games in Linux using an old version of DOSBox for Windows, through Proton is a bit too much and would prefer to run a game using native DOSBox from repositories.

I would appreciate help with testing (my library of DOS games on Steam is rather limited) - feel free to open new issues on GitHub, if something does not work right.

BTW, I think this is the very first unofficial Steam compatibility tool in the wild (not counting all the Proton forks) :)

Assassin's Creed Odyssey - Cannot open

I installed this game using wine on Manjaro. But I got an error when opening it after splash screen disappears.


When I opened it in Lutris the error is a bit longer:


I don't know what to do now. I was using Wine before, but I don't know it well. I want to play ACO on Linux, because I read somewhere that it is possible.

Would be awesome if I could monitor temps and other health stats while gaming. (something like conky would be perfect!)

Is that possible with the gallium hud? or dxvk hud?

Gift for my Kids (9+11yy)

School is going to the end of the year, and i'm gonna buy a gift for my Kids. They (9 and 11 years old) are devoted to Minecraft so i want to buy something that implies construction and management. There are two interesting games for them: Castle Story and farming together. Can you give me a hint about both or eventually something else? THX.

can anyone recommend a kid friendly FPS for linux?

My son is 8 and wants to play fortnite. I'm not installing windows. I'm sure he'll be happy enough just playing any new to him first person shooter. He's not big on blood and I don't think I want him playing doom anyways... Can anyone recommend something that will play on linux preferably is on stream or even better is free?

Vortex Lutris installer

I wrote a simple Vortex installer for Lutris, as the two officially available seemed to be broken. I submitted it as an edit to avoid cluttering the "game" with lots of installers and to keep people from getting broken installs. While it does not go through moderation you can get it on this gist (install with lutris -i ).

Everything seems to be working fine, other than launching games through it (due to different prefixes). I did not test profile specific saves and configurations but I expect these to not work as well. You may get an error when adding a game for the first time but that can be safely ignored.

Let me know if you see anything misbehaving and I'll see what I can do to improve it.

I'll be making an installer to automate Skyrim's installation from this guide next (Skyrim + Audio fix + SKSE64) .

Help deciding for an AMD graphics card?

Hi there,

I really really want to pick up a replacement for my 1070 soon that itself just isn't capable of running games in 144fps (so it fits my new screen) at all times, most noticable in GTA5.

Others already suggested to wait for Navi but to my knowledge it's is aimed at the midrange market for now.

So wouldn't it be better just to take the pill and grab a Radeon 7 albeit it is a bit pricey?

The idea too is to keep my 1070 in the system so I have a machine that can handle multiseat and gpu-passthrough as well.

I don't really know what to do, any ideas?

steam cemu using wine directly without proton - controller mapping

I'm adding cemu to steam as a non steam game and pointing it to a custom bash script that launches cemu using wine directly with proton disabled because proton gives reduced performance.

I'm launching the game in bpm but I would like to assigned a controller long press mapping to call alt + f4 to close cemu.

It doesn't seem to be working and I think it's because it requires steam overlay and that requires proton?

I'd also like to use in home streaming but I think the controller issue needs to be resolved first.

League of Legends Linux Clan? (And more games)

In light of recent events on this sub, I feel the need to see if we can get this topic to actual existence. I don't play League really anymore, but if I can remember my login I'd gladly join as well.

So I'm hoping this topic would get pinned, or something for new eyes to see, and want to contribute and be apart of the clan.

Anyway. I'm looking to see if there is any interest in the community to create a league of legends linux gaming clan

We can discuss details, eventually, I figure if there is a Mod of this sub who is a league player (and good) maybe they can be the clan owner, if theyre interested, or whoever, we can figure out the full details later in an edit.

If you feel like you're interested in creating a clan of League of Legends or other games, please feel free to express your interest below and communicate with other users and become pals and see if this can take off.

If someone is good with discord perhaps we can get a discord channel as well.

If there is interest in other games, please list them below and I'll add them to interested games list.

Interested Games:

League of Legends

CS:GO (Figure there would be interest here as well)

Im running a laptop with elementary os juno that does not meet the game requirements (its an hp 8470p: i5 2.8, 8gb RAM, intel hd graphics 4000) for Everspace but I was able to play it fine until a recent update that switched some backend stuff Im guessing. I have to use the launch option -opengl3 in order to get another error message that says I am missing a global shader cache and some other stuff about a cooked version and that I may want to try to launch an uncooked version instead. In the end I get a game that no longer launches. Any idea what I can do to finagle this game to run? Thanks for anything!

Heroes of Newerth is still functional with Intel Mesa but not Nvidia proprietary on Ubuntu 18.10


Official Linux and Mac support for Heroes of Newerth was dropped in December 2018 but those versions remained available for download via hidden URLs. As of Ubuntu Mate 18.04, I was able to install, update and run the game with my GeForce 940M GPU (Nvidia Optimus).



When I attempted to give it another try to see if the game is still functional on Ubuntu Mate 18.10, I found out that the game fails to launch with a libcairo error.

$ LC_ALL=C ./hon.sh
./hon-x86_64: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcairo.so.2: undefined symbol: FT_Get_Var_Design_Coordinates

After searching a bit, I found a guide that suggests removing ~/HoN/libs-x86_64/libfreetype.so.6. Doing so causes a weird segmentation fault:

$ LC_ALL=C ./hon.sh
warning: The VAD has been replaced by a hack pending a complete rewrite
Crash log saved as '~/.Heroes of Newerth/game/crash_4.7.5.0_01.log'
Segmentation fault

However, when I switch to integrated Intel GPU which uses Mesa drivers, it's entirely a different story. The game still crashes with the same libcairo error if libfreetype.so.6 is in place. But if I remove it, it launches, updates and runs just fine. Despite being unsupported for months, I am able to update the game from v4.7.3.1 to v4.7.5; it's able to play the game with other people just fine. Though, the console shows the same warning with no crash or segfault;

$ LC_ALL=C ./hon.sh
warning: The VAD has been replaced by a hack pending a complete rewrite

Source mods (HL2, Portal, etc) launches via Proton instead of native if Steam Play is enabled for every game

Many Source mods (Half-Life 2, Portal 1/2, Left 4 Dead 1/2) can run natively via gameinfo.txt edit and/or other tweaks as it is shown in following URL:


However, if Steam Play is enabled for every game, there's Steam Pay disclaimer next to Play button. So, it is suggested to disable Steam Play for the particular Source mod to play it natively.

Re-opening Steam through Wine after installation [HELP]

What I have: MacBook Pro (Late 2013) OS 10.13.5 (High Sierra) Installed Windows Steam through Wineskin 2.6.2

I was able to install Steam with Wine via Winetricks on Wineskin (wanted to play AoE2HD). But, once Im done and I close it out, how do I reopen it when Im ready to play again? Im unfamiliar with Wine so Im sure theres something simple that I should be doing that Im not aware of, but right now the only way I can find to get Steam to open again once Ive closed it is to just reinstall it through Winetricks every single time, which is obviously not ideal. I have the Windows Steam file itself on my computer (multiple actually, since Ive installed it at least four times now), but I obviously cant run it just on my Mac. Ive tried just keeping Steam open but it closed itself eventually, not sure why that happened but Im just assuming thats what its going to do. Any ideas are appreciated, as you all certainly know more about it than me.

Is it Possible to mount an ISO in Android Wine?


I tried really hard to register for the wine forums, but could not answer any of the questions successfully on the registration page. So, apparently I am a robot and not a human being (or maybe just a dumb human being).

I have successfully installed the Android APK for Wine on my Oculus Go.

Thanks to the interwebs, I figured out my first issue, which was changing my Z drive so I could see my directory. Hooray.

I have Star Trek Elite Force installed and runs successfully on my Windows 7 machine, and I have it cracked so I don't need to use the CD.

I hoped I could just copy it from my PC to Android and run with Wine.

I get an error, but the error isn't words, just symbols. So no help.

I thought I would try starting from scratch by mounting the Game Install disc as an ISO, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to mount the ISO.

Any comments on the above is appreciated (especially if I'm just wasting my time).

Have you tried libstrangle? The OpenGL/Vulkan frame rate limiter for Linux allows games to run "smoother".

Posting for awareness of what I think is a must have tool for Linux gaming, libstrangle.

"Why the heckin frick would I want to limit my frames, I paid for those frames!" - BDJ

For smoothness. When the frame rate is uncapped and goes over your monitors refresh-rate it can cause ugly micro stutters. Even when running lower than the monitors refresh rate locking some games frame rate can feel much smoother since the frame time variance is constant.

You could lock your frame rate to your monitors refresh-rate by turning on v-sync in most games settings, but that can introduce lag and also reduce the over all performance. Games will often v-sync to the monitors refresh-rate but if the game can't maintain that fps, it will drop to half the refresh-rate (drop from 60 - 30 fps) and bounce between the two causing very ugly and unnecessary stutters. With libstrangle you can lock the fps to your refresh-rate and disable vsync in game, no more stuttering. This also saves electricity since you don't render extra frames and reduces stress on the system.

I would love it if Valve incorporated the functionality of libstrangle into the Steam client, but for now you need to build it from source. Wait wait, don't run away it's easy

if you're on Ubuntu just extract the folder, install the three build dependencies in the readme, navigate into the extracted folder containing the "makefile" and run


sudo make install

Important tips for SteamPlay/Proton/DXVK on NVIDIA Optimus PRIME graphics

Hello, I don't know who here is using an NVIDIA Optimus setup on a gaming laptop, but I recently switched from Ubuntu to Gentoo and have been getting a lot deeper into the nitty gritty of my system, so I've discovered a few things that may help others.

1> Ubuntu and most other distributions will have a functional Optimus setup for the proprietary NVIDIA driver to at least be able to render your screen and give you NVIDIA GL over the Intel pipeline. What most distributions don't do is go the extra step and enable modesetting for the nvidia-drm module, which syncs your NVGPU to your Intel display. Without this, you will experience massive amounts of screen tearing. For me, this was accomplished by adding a .conf to /etc/modprobe.d with the following line:

options nvidia-drm modeset=1  

2> Now that the NVIDIA card is linked to the Intel framerate, traditional VSYNC is now horribly broken. If you try to play without disabling VSYNC, you'll experience horrible framerate issues and hangs. I've discovered that there's a way to disable VSYNC via DXVK/Proton by creating a drop-in file in the game's base directory called "dxvk.conf" with the following line:

dxgi.syncInterval = 0

With this modification, I can see that VSYNC is OFF in Sekiro in the GL stats that the NVIDIA driver can be set to draw in the top left of the screen, and there are no hangs or frame drops. It now runs just as it would (more or less) on a non-Optimus gaming desktop.

I hope that the collection of information I've written here helps others to achieve perfect performance on an under-represented configuration!

Steam proton games only work on intel not nvidia

This is a new issue for me. I used to play steam proton games just fine. Now after some months I have returned to steam proton and the games only work if I disable the GPU. I am using a laptop with Nvidia Optimus. If I switch to the intel card, the games open up and run just fine. If I switch to the nvidia card, the only thing I see is a black screen and then the game crashes. I have tried Skyrim, Dark souls, No mans sky and more.

Integrated graphics + dedicated GPU?

I've been using Manjaro on all my devices for 2 months now and am very glad I made the switch. However, the only way I was able to get my dedicated GPU to work was disabling my integrated Intel GPU. This works well, but I'd really like to be able to use both, my integrated and my dedicated GPU.

I've heard there's PRIME for laptop's to utilize hybrid GPU setups but the only solution I found for desktop PCs was Bumblebee and I heard that it doesn't support Vulkan and that I should not be using it.

So how do I use my integrated GPU alongside my dedicated GPU? Thanks a lot!

Driving force GT configuration


So I bought a second hand DFGT and I would like to configure it. I read that such software is no longer necessary since the drivers for this wheel are included in the kernel. And indeed I found /sys/modules/hid_logitech/drivers/hid:logitech/ which I think is the place to configure it.

However, I do not know what file to edit and what commands to use in order to set ramp speed, autocenter, force feedback strength and all the other things that you would be able to set under the windows logitech software.

Anyone of you that had a similar issue?

Installed it on my UPlay in Lutris (Wine tkg 4.6 + DXVK 1.1.1) and it works out-of-box (gets to the menu at least, I'm sure the rest works fine). However, it doesn't seem to be able to determine the NAT status, and therefore, doesn't let me play multiplayer (so stupid, I'm sure it can be bypassed through some hack). Any ideas/solutions? I could totally forward the ports and all but it looks like the game isn't even trying to check (and therefore MP remains grayed out).

What is GOG Galaxy like via Wine?

I play quite a few GOG games but I have them with the regular binary installs. If I was to mess with the Lutris install of Galaxy how would that work? If it works do I install the games as normal or will have to do something extra?

Denuvo and Linux compatibility

Hello everyone! I am running a dual boot, Windows 10 and Kubuntu, before i do the full change to Linux. What is stopping me Denuvo. I like to play Tales of Berseria, but i read on protondb that because of the DRM the game is unable to start. Can anything be done? Besides from cracking, even though i own the game, and that should be legal -i think- i don't know how to do it.

Toying with trying out Linux on my gaming machine. Do I go Arch or Manjaro (or neither)?

I have been using Linux casually and professionally for a few years, so I'm def not a newb, but I'm a far cry from an expert, too. Let's call me intermediate+.

I usually use some sort of debian based distro, like Debian herself or Ubuntu, Pop!_OS, etc. I've also dabbled in Arch through virtual machines and there are somethings that I really liked, but the setup was convoluted enough that I haven't adopted it yet because I often have to reinstall distros... I get carried away experimenting sometimes.

On my gaming machine, I still run Windows. I want to dual-boot with Windows and experiement a bit to see if Linux is or could be a viable replacement on my gaming rig. I've seen lots of linux gamers using Arch, and I also see that Manjaro is basically Arch but a little lower maintenance. Is this the case? What would you recommend?

What are the best dungeons and dragons type/or general rpgs for linux?

Ones like baldurs gate. I know there are quite a few about now.

Pillars of eternity and friends, pathfinder kingmaker looks sweet too. I know the fallout one forgot its name the one it was based off of. I read about another one only the other day too - sword coast legends though was sad to see how it was destroyed and abandoned by the developers and not given an open source treatment when they went bust - star ruler guys had the decency to do that.

Any others worth mentioning? Don't have to be isos, though I do have a special place in my heart from them having grown up on BG series. Love skyrim style ones though don't see much on that front for linux - witcher I haven't really gotten into. I tried the 2nd and first a little I think but the ninja style martial arts fighting I thought was stupid tbh and incongruous and jarring in a medieval style fantasy.

Pop! OS or Manjaro?

I recently watched linus tech tips video, and I want to leave windows! I can't really decide what I want to use as my distro.. Manjaro seems to get a bit more performance out of games when reading the forbes articles. Everyone says pop is better for beginners and manjaro will break. I feel like both is fine when I run them in VM.

What do you use for gaming and why?

Binding Keys to my Razer Mamba Tournament Edition

Hey guys,

So I have switched to linux on my new PC for a month or so now, a long time linux user (Didn't game on linux before, because of all the hassle, bought a new PC since I used to use laptops because I travelled a lot). However I can't seem to get keybinding the Control_L and Shift_L to work with the left buttons on my mouse. I have tried using the combination of xte and xbindkeys, but to no avail.

What I want to do with that keys is be able to hold Control_L (which is Button 9) or Shift_L (and Button 8) on my mouse and combine it with any other keys on the keyboard, such as in DotA 2 Control_L + q/w/e/r to upgrade those skills or in MMORPGs I would bind some Function keys with the ctrl or shift keys.

Currently I have in my .xbindkeysrc:

"xte 'keydown Control_L'" b:8 "xte 'keydown Shift_L'" b:9

As you can see, I can get the Control and Shift key to press down, but I don't know how to get it to keyup after another key is pressed. Any ideas?

Help with resolution scaling using nVidia drivers

DISCLAIMER: this is NOT a hidpi thread. I repeat, THIS IS NOT!!!! a hidpi thread! (because for some reason internet think scaled resolution is the same as hidpi...)

Ok, for the real problem: I want to make games in Linux to see more than xrandr informs my LCDs are reporting like a 3200x1800 or a 1620x2880 or even a 2560x1440 instead of 1920x1080 jumping directly to 3840x2160..............

Creating working scaled (to 4k) in the middle resolution is VERY easy inside nVidia drivers for windows but on Linux this is so painfull hard that I keep reconsidering going back to windows because games. So, please, help. Xrandr solutions over the internet don't seems to work properly when nVidia is present and nVidia itself have a thousand safe locks obscured comands inside xorg to prevent you from breaking Xorg.

So, there is some peace of miracle software that PROPERLY handles custom resolution in Linux? Or some way to do this by command that don't involve 13 "easy steps" just to change resolution every time?

(To linux devs: how can a thing this simple can be such a hell? This and mouse scroll speed... just, really!? why anyone fixed that after so much time? Just make things easier and help us leave windows behind!)

Is WSL2 to Windows what Wine is to GNU/Linux?

I just read this article from El Reg: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/05/06/windows_subsystem_for_linux_terminal/

Obviously the way it works is completely different to Wine but the end goal is pretty much the same, or at least to my understanding.

Is Microsoft trying to do the same thing to get software/apps that might be available only on GNU/Linux? Is WSL2 how Wine would have looked if the Windows kernel was open-source?

The Story So Far: Epic Games, Linux, And EAC Support | PC Invasion

05/07/2019 17:45:50 CEST

Is the rate of games releasing with Linux support slowing down or speeding up because of Proton or other changes to Linux gaming?

Has anyone pulled info directly from Steam or from SteamDB or elsewhere showing the rate of the release of Linux games, then normalized it to the rate of release of all games for all platforms on Steam, in order to see if our rate has been dropping or increasing lately? If so, have these drops or increases been correlated to various Proton announcements or other changes, perhaps ones that have caused public stirrings?

I feel like there has been a slow down of both larger and smaller games releasing for Linux. We used to get a lot of reports about larger games coming and releasing for Linux, but it just feels weaker and less common now, but I want to know for sure. There have been no confirmations of this yet that I've seen, just hearsay about developers saying, "Just play the Windows version in Proton." If true, Proton may have hurt Linux gaming more than it has helped. Proton was supposed to help Linux gaming and give us more games with official Linux support because it would grow the Linux gamer base by a lot, but so far I'm not feeling that happening and would like some hard stats about it if anyone has them or can get them.

Thanks in advance!

Steam games icons

Hi, So I recently switched to Linux and installed steam, everything is working great. I'm running Ubuntu, and I have an icon theme enabled that supports steam games. So when I create a .desktop file for my game, the icon from the icon theme shows as expected but when I launch the game, and if I look at the icon in the Ubuntu dash, it will be either the original icon or no icon at all . Is this behavior normal ? How to make it so that she icon from the icon theme shows in the dash and in the task switcher ?

Thanks in advance.

Will the Linux game library continue to grow?

I realize I'll probably get fairly biased answers but that's still better than NO answers...
With the end of Win7 on the horizon, I'm considering switching over to Linux. However, I use my PC pretty heavily for gaming. I looked for my most important Steam games in the Proton DB and, to my surprise, a lot of them had native Linux support.
However, a friend pointed out that that's probably just a result of the Steam Machine having been Linux based and now that has been discontinued, most developers might lose interest in Linux.

Can I trust the Linux gaming library to grow? Are current game devs still interested in native Linux support now that Valve's incentive is gone? I'm mostly talking about indie games, I have little to no interest in AAA titles...

Lutris and WII games on Debian

I installed nvidia drivers and they are updated. Using dolphin emulator, games are working perfectly.

I tried "Disable Lutris Runtime" and "Prefer system libraries" (all combinations) settings but the Lutris terminal output is the same: https://pastebin.com/ddx1pKub

How can I solve the issue? I suppose I need a newer version of GLIBC and Qt but they seems updated in debian, is there a package that I need and it's not installed?

League of Legend

Hi everyone,

I switched to Linux a year ago and recently move to arch Linux. I thought I could easily run League of Legend through wine and Lutris, so I downloaded it and everything went fine. I even could get to the lobby and pick a champion. But I cant actually launch the game. It says I must reconnect wich doesnt work. So I was wondering is that because of the anti cheat ? Is there a way around it, a way to solve that problem ? Or is there no way to play LoL on Linux ?

Changing to Linux and i have a Question.

So yeah, i have hated win10 for sometime and wanted to start using some Linux operating system, probably ubuntu or manjaro, even steamOs. it would be used mostly for gaming. (I take any recommendations.)

But the real question is, can i get Rainbow six: Siege to work via virtualization. I have read that battle eye doesn't support Linux and that's main reason why R6:S doesn't work on unix operation systems.

I play a lot of ESL and Rainbow Six is the main reason why i haven't changed operation system yet.

Dual boot is possible yes, but it feels stupid to just have WIN10 hanging around for R6:S...

Thanks for any help and advices in advance.

[wine 4.7][ubuntu] eve online can't manage mouse position when keep clicked

so I updated to wine 4.7. Before I was using the version of winehq-staging provided and it was ok.

Now in Eve, when I keep left click, middle click, or when I just right click, the position is off.

I made some tests and it seems the game receives the position of the mouse related to the top left (0:0) of the screen, not the app, but handles it as related to app.

This can be fixed by

- playing the game full scren (alt entrer) but then I can't play multiple accounts

- using a virtual desktop but then it's difficult to use several accounts (I'm used to the ubuntu window manager to switch windows)

Both those fixes are not possible. However they tell me it's a problem of relative/absolute position translation.

My second account in on the second screen, and I just can't use the right nor middle click. right click does nothing, middle click means I can't move my cursor (like "the mouse is out of the window") , and even if I keep left click I can't do anything for the same reason.

Again, no issue with previous version of wine.

Linux gaming is so good

Got you! Linux gaming is worst pile of stinking crappy crapping trash. Nothing works, not even native steam linux games work flawlessly. Proton is a joke, wine is a joke, drivers for gaming is a joke. WINDOWZ FOREVER MICRO$OFT IS THE BEST COMPANY BILLY NADELLA BALLMER FTW.

Has anyone tried pop os for gaming here? How is it?

Yeah I know it says it's more targeting towards developers and such which being one myself I do love very much. It's Ubuntu based so yeah dat stability and wide range of support. But we'll i like amd gpus and gaming, so an up to date kernel as soon as possible and same with Mesa is very important to me. Which is why I'm currently using manjaro.

So I'm wondering how pop os works for gaming and keeping Mesa and the kernel up to date. Has anyone played around with it here?

Dolphin over Steam Link?

I was trying to move over to Linux for gaming, but one thing I was having issues with controller input on Dolphin over my Steam Link with my Xbox One controller.

Skyrim + SKSE, saving freezes the game

I'm trying to get Skyrim working with SKSE + SkyUI so the interface isn't complete garbage. The base game without SKSE seems to work fine. Even with SKSE, the game runs smooth and has no issues. I just can't save without the game freezing up. It's not even 100% consistent, either. I can -usually- save the game once, but any subsequent attempts freeze the client. I used the SKSE installer to replace my launcher. This happens without even loading any mods.

I cannot find any logs with relevant information. How should I troubleshoot this issue?

Heavy stuttering in 3D Wine games

I'm beginning to suspect I have a bottleneck somewhere on my system, maybe hardware, maybe software. (Probably the latter). I get really abysmal performance in 3D games in both Wine (wine-staging) and Proton, even if they are 10+ years old. I have fairly high-end hardware and have toggled most of the "important" settings (see below). The last two games this just happened with were Vampire the Masquerada: Bloodlines and Battlefield Bad Company 2.

Vampire is a very buggy game, so I was willing to chalk up performance to that. But BFBC2 has absolutely horrendous stutter. Not a slideshow, but smooth movement for a few seconds punctuated by a massive and long-lasting frame drop every 4 seconds, in a cyclical fashion. This renders it unplayable. This made me begin thinking if some background process is interfering. I don't think it's the state cache, as I left it for awhile.

Data points:

  • Using 32gb RAM, GTX 1070, Ryzen 7 1700, asrock ITX mobo, nvidia driver 418.56, antergos
  • Enabled performance governor
  • Set powermizer to performance
  • Increased nofile limits
  • Enabled/disabled esync in proton launch options
  • Enabled/disabled d3d11 in proton launch options
  • Installed newer version of dxvk to prefix
  • Using latest drivers
  • For some reason, nouveau and mesa were installed as dependencies of some other package, but I confirmed by using lsmod, and nvidia onscreen flags and dxvk hud options, that g-sync and dxvk are working. I don't have integrated graphics.
  • CPU/GPU temps are fine. CPU usage in htop when a game is running lists 200-300%. Is this an artifact of using a multicore CPU and not indicative of a bottleneck? Renicing processes to have higher priority did not show any performance change.
  • htop does not show any processes in particular consuming outsized amount of resources, beyond web browser
  • Not using a compositor. Also disabled redshift to stop adjusting gamma ramps.
  • Disabled force composition pipeline and flipping in nvidia-settings, enabled sync to vblank. (Honestly, I'm a bit lost in these settings as to which combination is optimal.) I do notice that when opening and closing nvidia-settings, it resets gamma to a warm tone resembling previous redshift settings. I'm not sure where this gamma profile is stored or why this is happening. I have to use 'redshift -x' to disable that and wipe gamma changes, even though redshift is not definitely not running.
  • Not using a full xorg.conf, only xrandr to configure displays, and a minimal xorg.conf with triple buffering enabled. Not sure if I should write out a full xorg.conf from nvidia-settings or write one by hand.
  • Vsync is off in games
  • Haven't updated my BIOS from factory default firmware
  • Running games at 2560x1440. Even setting all shadows/textures to low and disabling AA does not improve stuttering.
  • Using pulseaudio
  • I do have various background scripts writing to disk and polling things, but their footprint appears to be minimal at best. Drive is SSD.
  • Using i3wm, games set to fullscreen
  • Steam overlay is disabled (incidentally, the achievements popups still appear, and these cause massive frame drops when the bar slides in and out -- something to do with the overlay being drawn to the screen in i3wm?
  • Before playing, opening a standalone TTY3 with a reduced xinit script and blanking all monitors but one (for g-sync)
  • Tested on lowest settings: closed all web browsers, background processes, and set game graphics to 1024x768 on lowest possible settings. Still heavy, unplayable stutter. What is going on here? Surely I'm not running software rendering?
  • Anecdotal: I get random resets/shutdowns about once a week, which from some exploration on another thread, may be traced to an error in an early production run of first generation Ryzen CPUs. I'm not sure if that would impinge on this issue. I ran the hardinfo CPU benchmarks and all came up clean, with high marks.

Does anything here stand out as a culprit? I feel I have taken reasonable steps to improve performance, but something is wrong. I haven't noticed this much in native games, although to some extent it is there. CS:GO is also kind of stuttery for me. I ran the Talos Principle benchmark for a bit in native and averaged about 80 fps, although it, too, had some heavy swings up and down.

I would greatly appreciate some mentorship here and auditing running processes or other settings to figure out what the heck is going on, since I know people with lesser hardware can run many games fine, let alone ones from 10+ years ago. I can pay you an honorarium for your time if it winds up being time consuming.

steam-mv, workaround for the Move Install Folders bug in Steam for Linux, is now considerably less fucky.

Hi all, steam-mv has been refactored, and includes new features like sanity checks and support for Steam libraries created on Windows.


What's New:

  • Should now work with Steam Library Folders created on Windows.
  • Apps are alphabetically sorted.

  • Terminates Steam Client processes before moving files to prevent client from freaking out. (The script asks for permission.)

  • Checks available free space and total file size of move before moving. Exits gracefully if there isn't enough room.

  • Progress bar based on file count.

  • Refactored and readable. Obeys PEP8.

Silly question about EGS exclusivity contract

Problem with Rise of industry from GOG

Hello! I have a problem with Rise of Industry, when I launch it as an application or through Lutris it shows me the splash screen, then crashes and opens the Steam store page for Rise of industry, just like it wants to start trough Steamplay. Even if Steam does not run, after the game crashes Steam opens, logs me in and puts me in the Rise of industry store. I'm using Manjaro.

I bought the game on GOG because their store said it had native support for Linux, but I can't get it to work. Does anyone have a fix?

New Vegas Radio Fix for Gentoo

Hello Reddit,

Recently, I've been experimenting with Gentoo and so far I love it. However, New Vegas proved tricky to get working in terms of the radio. After an hour and a half of diagnostics, I determined it wasn't a missing libmpg issue like it was on other distros I used. Reading through Lutris's output log further, Wine kept complaining about GStreamer failures, so I tried setting winegstreamer to disabled in the DLL overrides, and boom, it worked. I figured I'd share this here for anyone having the same problem. The steps you should take:

-Enable multilib for mpg123 by either setting it in /etc/portage/package.use/mpg123, or globally in /etc/portage/make.conf

-Run "sudo emerge --ask --quiet media-sound/mpg123" and ensure it builds correctly

-Use winecfg to set winegstreamer to disabled for your New Vegas prefix. No quartz overrides should be needed too.

That's it. It worked for me, and I hope it works for anyone else having the same issue. It seems to be a Gentoo-specific problem. At least now it works, and I can even use FOMM to load some mods.

Steam re-downloads games in library when I switch distros

I have games installed on disk B and the distro installed on disk A. When I distro hop, and point the library folder in steam to the location on disk B, it tries to redownload some (not all) of my games. I've tried halting it and verifying the local files and it still insists on downloading the game again.

For example, Mass Effect 2. Tries to redownload 9GB every time I change distros.

Freesync+A good beginner's guide

Extremely long disclaimer: I'm extremely new to Linux and advanced usage of computers in general, all I've done up until recently is standard Web Browsing. I just built a PC and I tried Ubuntu. (Its for gaming but I don't want to use Windows, and I can't afford it) Now that I know a tiny bit more about Linux ( I'm still a complete newbie though) I want to start afresh with a more barebones distro (Antergos) and I want to do it right. I know beginners aren't supposed to start with anything Arch-based but I don't mind messing things up a few times and learning as I go. I'm going with Antergos because it seems slightly more beginner friendly than pure Arch. End of extremely long disclaimer.

Question One: Now I haven't been able to find a definitive answer for my question: Does freesync work on Linux or not? (AMD RX 580)

Question Two: Is there any general guide for getting games up and running on Linux? I mean stuff like troubleshooting and Macgyver-ing your way through problems with Wine, Proton, and whatever else you need to make things work. I don't mind having to learn, as long as everything is laid out clearly.

d9vk with Lutris steam/battle net runners


Has anyone gotten battle net and steam dx9 games to work through d9vk over lutris? I grabbed the precompiled binaries from https://git.froggi.es/joshua/d9vk/-/jobs and copied them over to ~/.local/share/lutris/runtime/dxvk/d9vk

Then in the client itself I enabled dxvk for starcraft 2 and changed the version to manual. Then I renamed 'manual' to d9vk. However, the battle net client does not seem to work; a tray icon is created but that's about it. Same for steam.

Any ideas?

need help with obs. trying to stream on Ubuntu 19.04 but getting a really choppy stream

im not sure if I should ask for help here or on the obs subreddit because its a linux issue and im sure most people on that subreddit are familiar with obs on windows.

my specs first

ryzen 2600

16gb ddr4 3200

GTX 1060 6gb

300mb down 25mb up connection hardwired

Ubuntu 19.04

from what I've read I should be able to stream 1080p 60fps with this setup at a 6000 bitrate using the nvenc codec. however, my stream shows otherwise. it is super choppy and lags beyond belief. I have down scaled to 720p and put it to 30fps and it is less choppy but its still there. I have played with so may different settings and nothing seems to help. I've brought the bitrate down to 2500 and it doesn't help. am I missing a tweak or something? any help would be awesome

SteamVR extremely unstable on Nvidia?

1080Ti with binary driver 430.09, Ubuntu 18.04

Very, very frequently, I get a freeze where both the HMD and desktop displays were just frozen. Ctrl+Alt+F# won't work. I'd shell in and find Xorg using 100% CPU. Sometimes, I could recover the system by killing Xorg. Other times, it would die, but the desktop displays were unrecoverable. Other times still, it just wouldn't quit even with SIGKILL. At one point, after trying SIGKILL, Xorg was showing in top as a zombie, but still somehow consuming 100% CPU.

After physically disconnecting my second monitor, I was able to run Beat Saber for 5-6 songs, bumped the system button, tried to go back to the game and I had a corrupt display in the HMD. Desktop mostly unresponsive. Shelled in and killed every vr* process I could find and managed to recover my X session.

Proton being what it is at this stage, applications behaving poorly, crashing etc. just comes with the territory. But the X server itself crashing or hanging is unacceptable, period.

In dmesg I'm getting a lot of lines that look like this. Driver bug?

I've seen multiple people have a better experience. Is there a certain driver I should be using? Is an AMD GPU mandatory for the time being? Is it Ubuntu 18.04? Is having a 4K monitor a problem? Gnome's compositor somehow interfering? Or is this just the state of things and a few people got lucky?

libperflogger 0.0.1 released - A game performance logging library


Since Valve's voglperf doesn't have Vulkan support, I wrote a simple library to capture frametimes in OpenGL and Vulkan applications.

It should work in all such games, but don't hesitate to open an issue if something doesn't work!

Half Life 2 mods on Linux?

I switched over to Linux after a hard drive failure a few weeks ago. I have used Linux for a while, but not on my main computer. Upon trying to get Half-Life 2 mods such as MMod working via proton (since they don't appear to work natively) I was met with failure. I was wondering if any of you know of some mods that do work?

Anyone know how to get Half-Life 2: Cinematic Mod to work in wine?

I've been unable to find much of anything on how to get HL2 to run in wine (it does have a native Linux port after all) let alone this specific mod. If you don't know, the Cinematic Mod is a HL2 mod that's a complete graphical re-haul of HL2 to make the game more uh, cinematic. That being said, it's a Windows only mod, so I'm unable too just set it up alongside the Linux port of HL2, so wine it is. The thing is, HL2 and the episodes refuse to launch; I'm able to run the Cinematic Mod launcher and character pimp tool fine, but attempting to launch HL2 itself just crashes right away, same if I try to open it manually in a terminal. Here's the dump info http://dpaste.com/3DRH722

And the CLI errors (notice how it crashes because it doesn't have d3d9.dll, except I've installed multiple versions of directx9 in an attempt to fix this and it still doesn't work, and sorry for the screenshot, I can't figure out how to copy-paste from this weird PlayOnLinux terminal) https://files.catbox.moe/8e0dox.png

Wifi/BT Adapter Help

So I just installed Ubuntu 19.04, and so far I'm loving it. Things have come a long way since last I tried. One thing would really be the icing on the cake for me though, getting my wifi/bt adapter working. I have an AC55BT from Asus. I tried installing the driver I downloaded from Asus' website via the command line, but saw no effect. Hoping someone can help me troubleshoot this and get this adapter working, mostly for the bluetooth capabilities. Thanks!

Added a command line interface to my game, need suggestions on what features to have it support?

Hello r/Linux_Gaming!

I come to you to ask for a bit of help. I'm working on my next game, Space Mercs - a dogfighting game that turns you into a bullet dodging badass, and I have added a CLI as a main hud in the game.

In the chance that I'll port this game to Windows later on, I want to ask you guys, what bash specific commands would you like to see in it? I'm developing the game as part of my Linux 1st Initiative and I believe it would be a good way to teach possible Windows players to use Linux without them knowing and promote linux this way.

So far you can do "ls" to see your in-game's computer directory structure. Cat to read .txt messages and you can execute programs like your in-game e-mail client with ./email and navigate through the menus with ./campaign, ./quick_battle, ./main_menu, etc.

Since this is done, I kinda want to extend it, and add more easter eggs that would benefit the players while also teach them not to be scared of a CLI.

One easter egg for example is, if you do ls, in the CLI while in flight it will display a folder called cheats. Typing chmod 777 Cheats allows you to access it and execute the "following scripts": * ./restore_hull.sh * ./increase_damage.sh * rm -rf *.enemy to destroy all enemies on screen!

Some screenshot goodies here!

I would want to know what's the procedure of playing a unzipped game directly on Linux.

How do I troubleshoot poor Ubuntu (Pop!_OS 19.04) performance? - 9900K - 2080 TI

System runs great on Windows, but under linux, I tried Quake champions, it drops to like 3FPS. Hitman 2 works better, but still not smooth, with frequent stutters. Benchmarks like Superposition play with lots of tearing, and even videos play with occasional tearing.

I am using a fresh Pop!_OS 19.04 install with Nvidia latest drivers and steam play with Proton experimental enabled.

Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks.

05/04/2019 03:37:03 CEST

I found the magic formula! 60fps, no stutter, no tear, no input lag.(Nvidia)


I discovered a combination of settings that would give me constant 60 fps with no stuttering or input lag.

Silky smooth gameplay!

The trick is to provide "60 fps cap" via nvidia driver settings and not from in game vsync.


i5-4670K @ 4.20GHz


Games tested:

LoL, Wow, Witcher 3, 3x Tomb Raider Games, Sekiro, Metro Exodus (couldn't get sound working)


Force Composition Pipeline. Prevents tear.

Allow Flipping. This gives the smooth 60 fps. Game must be fullscreen. I use wine's virtual desktop at 1920x1080. Also extending desktop with a second monitor breaks flipping. Mirroring doesn't break it.

Enable DXVK and ESYNC.

Disable any desktop compositing. Compositing breaks flipping.

Disable any in game fps limit and vsync. Vsync is provided by Composition Pipeline and flipping.

Disable Threaded Optimization by env variable __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATION=0. Dxvk is multithreaded. Experiment with it.

Force Composition Pipeline

Allow Flipping


Threaded Optimization is disabled.

To test if flipping is working tick Enable Graphics API Visual Indicator in the driver settings.

You should see green FLIP and red VSYNC OFF when you start a game.

FLIP - VSYNC OFF. Our setup is working.

The downside of flipping is that other applications cant grab whats on the screen.

Meaning you cant use obs or ffmpeg to record the game.

That is why this post is written and not a video.

You can however use one of those hdmi usb video capture devices to record/stream games.

I hope you get the results i get. I am very happy with it.

Thanks to people involved in developing wine and dxvk.

Newcomer searching for advice

Hello everyone! I am a "newcomer" to Linux (i am studying Linux system administration/engineering and currently studying for the LPIC 101) who had enough of M$ sh*tty schemes. I made the jump to Linux mainly because of two reasons. First. i saw the video of TechYesCity about how X58 lost performance on Windows 10 over time, and i noticed my i7 2600k lost perfomance too (my rig is an i7 2600k @ 4.2GHz, an Asus p8p67 evo b3, 8GB of DDR3 1600Mhz RAM in dual channel, a GTX 970 and 2 1TB HDD's). I tried Windows 7 with my old Ultimate key, and that was even worse, i mean, over 200 updates, and ONE of them borked my PC, making me lose over 600gb of important files (to make things worse, my 1TB SSD was stolen from my workplace, and there was my backup). I came back to Windows 10 because some of my Steam games won't work on Proton. But yesterday, after another borked update, i decided i had enough. I decided for Pop_OS, and i'm loving it so far. Overhead in Linux is practically non-existent (i could download a Steam game at full speed without clogging my HDD, unlike Windows, in which i had to throttle the speed to be able to navigate through Windows without it taking 30 seconds to open a folder). The thing is, i'm not sure what is the correct way to play games, for example, i installed Steam, Lutris, and Wine. Lutris can open Steam games, and it seems it does a better job on Wine-based apps than Wine itself. But im not sure how it works with Proton and such. Could anyone lend me a hand on this?

Radeon RX570 drivers for Linux Mint 18.3 , Open GL issue

I joint team read and got an RX570 yesterday to replace my GTX750 which I use for emulation on dolphin, retro arch, ppsspp and steam.

Popped the new card in and after some difficult got it to install the drivers with guides found in Linux mint forums.

I though I had it right as I got it to boot without recovery mode but now when I open ppsspp, and retro arch it flashes and doesn't open. When I open steam and it gives Open GL issue and when I open dolphin, and run the open go backend it gives an error. When I change the backend to Vulkan it runs the game but stripped horizontal graphic error lines.

Is there something I'm missing?

For the run file I only changed the os type to linuxmint if that changes anything.

Also, would it just be easier to reinstall Linux mint or repair it to give and option on default amdgpu drivers

Any help much appreciated

Menu items take multiple clicks to activate

Hoping someone can help me with this. Every game I run with wine requires that I click multiple times on menu buttons before the buttons are activated. Sometimes the animation plays showing I've clicked on a button, but nothing happens. It's incredibly frustrating. This only happens in menus. In-game, mouse clicks operate as expected. Even simple ascii roguelikes with menus that require mouse clicks have the same issue. Any idea what could be causing this?

Dead Space 2 (Origin) through Lutris

I just can't seem to get this game to run on my installation, I've seen it working on youtube and such so I know it's able to run with Lutris.

I've followed the following: https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki/Game:-Origin as I did have the DirectX issue. I'm running Manjaro so I've installed all the required dependencies listed for Arch.

When I launch the game, I can see the proces Dead Space 2 being created, I see it launch in a black screen and it immediately crashes. I've tried to find the settings file to set the resolution but it's not in the location it's supposed to be, which makes me believe it doesn't crash on that.

Any of you know how to get it running? Thanks!

Struggling with PlayOnLinux on Fedora 29

Hi there!

So I've installed POL on my Fedora 29 installation. I have both wine32 and wine64 installed, but still every time I try to install anything, I get stuck on the "please wait while the virtual drive is being created" message with the following log if it runs from the terminal:

Wine cannot find the FreeType font library. To enable Wine to use TrueType fonts please install a version of FreeType greater than or equal to 2.0.5. http://www.freetype.org err:syslink:SYSLINK_SetFont Failed to create link font!

I have a newer version of Freetype, even the i.686 version, and it still doesn't work :(

I've seen posts about this issue online, but all of them were outdated/unhelpful. Anyone got a clue what could be wrong?

No previous experience with linux, which distro would you recommend?

Hey guys!, so i recently watched a video about Linux Gaming and i've been compelled to experiment with it, my main point of interest is how Linux feels snappier and more "responsive" in comparison to windows, i've always tried to get the most out of my rig and normally that means making everything as ugly as possible for the sake of performance, but i've seen that most distros offer great performance and good visuals aswell so why not? i've tested a few distros using a virtual machine(Linux Mint and Manjaro) i leaned more towards mint, for some reason it just felt better, but hey here i am asking those who have more experience. Which distro would you recommend me? be it Mint or Manjaro or even a completely new one

05/03/2019 01:36:34 CEST

This has been said a thousand times already, but because of recent developments: It angers you that a company will drop Linux support? DON'T BUY FROM THAT COMPANY.

I am not talking a small studio that isn't getting any sales from Linux, so they decide to drop support because they need even dollar they can spare, I am talking about multi-billion dollar companies that refuse to support Linux. Sure, they aren't obligated to port their games to Linux, but if it angers you, they stop giving them any money.

If you don't care about Linux support, and wouldn't mind playing a game through wine from a company that would drop Linux support as a Fuck You, sure, you do you. I can't and won't force you to not buy it.

But if it annoys you, don't give in. Buying their games would prove their point: They can drop support, and still get our money. Why would they continue support then?

Tweets will only give their PR team some headache, nothing more. Voice your unsatisfaction with your wallet. It may not be enough, but it is the only thing that can actually make a change.

No Tux, No Bucks.

Not looking good for Rust Linux client

From today's blog post


Linux UpdateAndr Straubmeier

This update brings a new set of fixes for the Linux client that should resolve some of the issues that have been reported. Unfortunately I also have to take this moment to address the future of Rust on Linux. We are currently debating internally whether or not to end Linux support in the near future. There are many reasons for this but the biggest issue right now is the problematic state of Linux support from third parties. Any software that supports Linux faces the same problem of putting in a lot of effort for an extremely small customer base, so we are sympathetic for the decisions our partners have been making. Unfortunately this means we keep encountering problems with Rust on Linux that cannot be solved by us directly and require us to wait around for fixes, which can take months or in some cases never materialize. We have not made a decision on whether or not to continue supporting Linux yet, but we wanted to communicate this process early so the community is aware of it.

Hello everyone.

I haven't tried out Linux for the purpose of gaming. Usually it is just Ubuntu, CentOS or something like that for some server purpose.

But can I run the following games on a distro like Manjaro (or any other):

  • Battlefield V
  • Battlefield 1
  • Fortnite
  • Paladins
  • Risk of Rain 2
  • Total War: Warhammer 2
  • Rainbow Six Siege
  • GTA V
  • Sekiro

Also, do any Linux distro yet support the RTX 2080?

I have old hardware, specifically AMD A4-6300 APU with Radeon HD 8370D integrated GPU. I was just wondering if my games would run well on Linux vs Windows 10. As a basis, I think I'll be happy if I could run Dota 2 smoothly on Linux.

Just a heads up that The Swapper, a really awesome sci-fi puzzle game is 85% off right now in Steam and has native Linux support!

I have no affiliation to the game devs, just a frugal fellow linux gamer. This game is really cool, the graphics are beautiful, soundtrack is great, it is near perfect for a puzzle game. It is a bit like Portal but not first person. It comes out to like $2.24 in the US. Here is the link to the Steam page

Trying to get Marvel vs Capcom Infinite to work on Steam Play!

Hey guys! I'm brand new to Linux with a total of about 24 hours experience (been planning to make the jump from Windows 10 when Fedora 30 dropped and I grabbed that last night), with Marvel vs Capcom Infinite being the main point of friction as that is currently the main game that I play and I couldn't find any positive reports on it working on Steam Play.

Then I came across this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCzhBd_GKVE

I figured give it a shot, so I installed all the drivers and got everything running just fine. Dota worked to confirm my R9 270 was able to run on the provided drivers, Duck Tales worked to confirm that Windows games worked, so I went ahead and downloaded Marvel.

In Steam, using Proton 4.2-3, it would say "running" and just stop, with absolutely nothing coming up. Trying everything that I could, I decided to just install Lutris and try get the game running through that. To my surprise, the game runs just as well as it ever did on Windows! The biggest difference was that the video wanted me to run a different version of Wine (I found a newer one, tkg-protonified-4.6-x86_64), enable DXVK and Esync. Bear in mind, at this point I still have absolutely no idea what any of this is, I'm just following instructions.

My problem is that I'm sorta stubborn, I kinda want everything to fall under my native Steam install if it can be helped, though getting it to run on Lutris is good enough if this isn't possible. My first instinct was to change the version of Wine being used, but Steam's only letting me use different versions of their official fork of Proton or something? Is it possible to use that version of Wine I used for Lutris?

Thanks in advance! It means a lot that I'm able to carry on with my business and leave Windows behind me.

No sound in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey Uplay

I've tried installing AC: Odyssey from the game-specific Lutris installer and also via the generic Uplay installer. Neither has audio when I run it. I'm on Manjaro running the stable drivers (Mesa 19.0.3).

Things I've tried:

  • winetricks xact
  • Adding an override for xaudio2_7 to native,builtin
  • Setting ACOdyssey.exe to Windows XP mode
  • Installing faudio (I noticed that it's included in the Uplay installer)

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Edit: Audio works fine in other games for me

The future of Rocket League on Linux

So, Epic Games bought Rocket League's developers, Psyonix.

The game will still be available on Steam, but it was strongly hinted they will stop selling it there (and honestly, why wouldn't they?). As Epic Store doesn't support Linux we're left to wonder what will happen.

I can imagine 3 scenarios, from worst to best: Linux support is dropped, the Linux port still gets updates through Steam, or this marks the launch of Linux support for the Epic Store.

All those three seem unlikely to me. The first at best would be terrible PR, they wouldn't do the second because there's no point support something that isn't selling, and on the third Epic has been historically anti-Linux, which is understandable from a business POV.

But of course something has to happen. Which scenario do you think will play out? Are there other possible scenarios?

Gaming without a Full Desktop enviornment

I see a lot users on r/unixporn who don't use a full Desktop Environment (like MATE, KDE, GNOME, ect) but just use a window manager. Apparently you can still use graphical applications if you install the right stuff. I'm wondering if you can do this for games. Has anyone tried installing steam and running AAA titles without a full desktop environment?

Just wanna give one for POP!_OS

So I moved to Linux almost a year ago, and immediately settled on Ubuntu, cause that was the only distro I had used before (school computers). I had a lot of trouble solving driver issues (thanks, NVIDIA) and getting stuff working.

last week i finally decided to try something new (albeit not too different, heh) and moved to POP. My games install right out of the box, even Overwatch.

Really happy about it, could have saved me so much sweat. So, do some reading on distros and don't be afraid to change, it can totally be worth it!

Steam controller, Cemu, gyro on linux?

I am trying to play Zelda BotW on Cemu on Arch linux, and I am having some troubles. The game runs very well using steam proton, but I can only get it to recognize my xbox one controller, and not my steam controller. As soon as i open the input section in the emulator to configure the controller, the steam controller switches to desktop mode. I know some shrines in the game requires gyre, which the xbox one controller does not have, but the steam controller does. Also I would really like to use motion controlls when aming.

I have stumbled across this link which makes it possible to use the steam controller gyro in the emulator, on windows at least.

Are there anyone with a similar setup that know what I can do? Feel free to ask for more information about the problem.

Solving the GLFW First Responder Problem on Mac OS X

If you are running OpenGL in the XCode and getting this error message on program start-up.When you run your OpenGL program you find that you will need to resize or move the window before rendering will begin. If this is the case you are in the right place, this article will show you how to solve it.

Error Message:

Setting as the first responder for window , but it is in a different window ((null))! This would eventually crash when the view is freed. The first responder will be set to nil.

GLFW v3.2.1 causes this problem. You have probably installed glfw from brew and it has installed this version because it uses the current stable release. In my previous article, I actually show you have to installglfwusing brew. But it turns out that this is not as stable as it makes out on a Mac.

So to solve the problem you need to install themaster branch of GLFW, which involved downloading the source and building from scratch, which is a good thing for your system. Here are the steps to do this:

Uninstall glfw 3.2.1

($brew uninstall glfw)

Download glfw-master fromhttps://github.com/glfw/glfwandunzip

In the root of the folder structure:


$ cmake

$ make

Output from this should be:

$ make

Magic online with lutris, cannot find executable.

Has anyone managed to use magic online with lutris (or any other way) ?

With lutris i get a warning in the installer, saying the executable path will contain randomly generated folder names that the installer cannot predict and that i have to set the exe path manually after installation.

My problem is that the exe is not created, and the file path itself is not fully created. The installer gives me a path that looks like "c_drive/users/$username/AppData/Local/Apps/...." and the file path that exists once the installation finihes is rather "c_drive/users/$username/AppData/LocalLow/" and then that strange LocalLow folder is just empty.

Has anyone experienced similar issues ? has the executable simply been moved in the install path ?

Thanks in advance.

Unable to run StarCraft Remastered

I'm unable to run StarCraft Remastered using wine-4.0. on Fedora 29.

I kinda tried everything:

  • following instruction from AppDb,
  • Using proton by adding the .exe to steam.
  • Using Lutris

Battle.net run fine, but launching the game from within or manually won't do anything.

Is it possible to force a compatibility profile?

Trying to figure out if there's any way to work around City of Heroes (an OpenGL game, according to the Internet) not allowing me to use certain graphics options. I think modern Wine defaults to a core profile, so maybe it is not providing some extension the game needs for that reason.

Tips or tricks before installing Linux on gaming laptop

I picked up a budget gaming laptop (ASUS FX505DY-ES51 - Ryzen 5 3550H processor and Radeon RX 560X discreet GPU) and was thinking about putting Linux on it. I'm thinking Pop OS will be what I install since it's based on Ubuntu and there is already a ton of support existing for Ubuntu and that's what I used in the past (I have done Linux gaming a couple of years ago on a desktop with decent success through a combination of trial and error and scouring the internet for help, so I shouldn't be completely lost when I go back to it). However, I'm wondering how much different it will be with laptop hardware instead of desktop hardware as far as drivers go.

For example, will Linux switch between integrated graphics and discreet graphics when going from desktop usage to gaming to preserve battery? Is obtaining the correct drivers more difficult with laptop hardware compared to standard desktop stuff? Assuming I don't have the LED control options in the BIOS, will there be any way to control the keyboard LED backlight? What will gaming performance be like compared to gaming on Windows?

I'm also just looking for any other tidbits of wisdom from people who have done this sort of thing before. I'm hoping that being an all AMD system will work in my favor in this endeavor, but also the price on this machine was right in my wheelhouse and I didn't want to spend a lot of money.

Thanks for any input you all have, I'm looking forward to getting this machine up and running with Linux soon.

Question: What are the disadvantages?

So what are the negatives on converting over. I've been trying it now and then. Was hoping SteamOS was gonna be the breakthrough. But since there's more launchers and stores, I guess we're here now with the Lutris and Manjaro options? So now I'm willing to give it another go.

So what are the disadvantages right now, what type of games can't you play? Which launchers can't be used etc? As far as I've understood it, Windows Store games like Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2 can't be played? And some games with anti-cheat might not be willing? Some Steam games that aren't marked for Linux of course. But what else, what other launchers? And what anti-cheat engine games won't work?

Gamepad configurators? Do you guys use them?

Do you guys use these types of programs? Do you need them? Are there any in particular you recommend?

Before my glorious ascension, I used a nifty little program on windows called xpadder that I could use to calibrate and configure my gamepad - things like increase dead zones, account for analog sticks being slightly off-centre, assign button presses to keyboard/mouse inputs for older games, assign a particular analog stick to control mouselook etc

Meanwhile, I recently discovered I could run Colin Mcrae Rally (a game I used to love when I had it on PlayStation a long, long time ago) using steamplay/proton but it's having a hard time with my xbox 360 controller. It works, but not very well.

I've been looking into programs like qjoypad but thought I would seek the advice of the lovely, knowledgable people in this forum to see if there's something better I should be using instead

After going through the tutorial I installed the game fine, ran the game fine, but the actual window of the game does not appear anywhere. Theres no glaring error in the console from what I can tell. Other games work just fine, though they are a bit sluggish. Is there something obvious I am missing, or is this just something weird about the game itself?

Need advice onto switching

Hi i have wanted to switch to linux for so long, but the main game I play is League of Legends. I rarely play any other game, maybe CSGO but not much else. The only reason that is keeping me from switching is not being able to play League anymore. Is there any way to make it work properly in Linux? I really want to switch. Thank you for your attention.

PlayOnLinux Wine Bottles Version Stability Question

I am new to Linux, and Wine. Now correct me if I am wrong but with PlayOnLinux you are able to set the wine version for every game you install which means if you know what version of wine works best for game X and Game Y you can have both games using the wine version the works best for it.

Now with new versions of Linux distros, linux kernals over the years do these preferred versions of Wine no longer work for games. Lets say Game X works great on wine v2.0.0. In 20 years time will this still be true or could it not work and require a different wine version to run Game X?


Is it best to use the latest version of Wine regardless, and new versions of Wine will not break games that ran excellent on older version of wine?

online games in Ubuntu have considerably more lag whereas in Windows 10 the lag is not present

I'm currently running a dual-boot system with Ubuntu 19.04 and Windows 10. My Wi-Fi drivers work on both systems, but in Ubuntu, I get worse latency issues in online games such as TF2 and Rocket League. I've looked online for a possible fix to the issue to no avail. I am using a Panda Wireless N-300 USB Wi-Fi Adapter. Any ideas?

I am very pleasantly surprised

A few days ago I tried CS on Manjaro, first time trying any sort of gaming on Linux in ~2 years. I was insanely surprised when I saw that not only was the game perfectly playable, it ran BETTER on Linux. The mouse feels more responsive and my framerate is higher, my configs all work perfectly fine. After seeing that, I jumped ship; Windows is no longer on my computer and I have yet to try a game from my library and have it not work perfectly fine. Quake Champions, Overwatch, CSGO, all of my indie games such as Hollow Knight and Starbound, they all just work. Very little if any configuration was needed for any of it. Even my PS4 controller didn't need any configuration at all, it even has a battery monitor under the Battery & Brightness applet in KDE (I had trouble even seeing what my battery level was on my controller through various programs on Windows). I'm hoping that if anyone reading this is considering switching but is worried about gaming being a drawback, they shouldn't worry that much. I've had a great experience so far with gaming on Linux and can definitely recommend it. Some games I know don't work such as Fortnite and Apex, but I can't imagine that we will be that long without support for them.

New rig with questions

Hi All!

I'm new to this community and gaming on linux but have been active in /r/linuxmint for a while and am not new to linux as a whole. My question pertains to a rig i'm building, linux mint, and gaming (specifically csgo)

I'm ready to build this system and have a question on Ryzen/AMD and gaming on linux.

I want to use Linux Mint as my OS instead of windows and was wondering if anyone had experience with gaming on Ryzen/AMD and linux. I pretty much only play CSGO and I know that Steam supports it for linux so thats not an issue for me. Right now I get about 120-160fps on my laptop at 2560x1080 ultrawide and I will be sticking with that monitor. My laptop is a i5-8300HQ and a GTX 1050 but on windows. Will I be okay or at least experiance similar results?

The system is a bit more powerful than i'm sure I need for gaming but I also am a software developer working with Machine learning and need a bit more processing power than normal

This is the build

FFXI on MacOS (High Sierra) issues

I've been itching to reactivate my character on retail FFXI and I'm hitting the same wall no matter what I try. I get PlayOnline to boot up the first time and after updating it, I get a black screen. I can hear the background music.

Game itself isn't an issue as I can get private servers working without issue, just POL. I have tried 4.0 stable, 4.1, 4.6 and currently, 4.7 development. I'm installing the required dependencies to avoid this particular issue, according to the WineHQ AppDB.

Has anyone run into this issue? If so, how were you able to correct it?

I'm using a 2018 15" MBP (Radeon 555X) with High Sierra 10.13.6

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

GameDev: Something that really frustrates me about trying to support linux


When contacting a voice chat middleware company vivox about paying them to add linux support, they instead just suggested I drop the entire platform.

I'm sorry, I'm not dropping a entire platform over a god damn voice chat middleware.

Fortnite and PUBG both use this middleware for voice chat. I'm not surprised that they don't support linux given how some of these middleware providers act.

Just one of the many things game developers run into on a daily basis that push them in the direction away from supporting more platforms.

Building new gaming PC, differences to windows?

So I'm gonna build a new gaming PC in a few weeks and really want to switch to Linux (from Windows).

Now as I have no experience with Linux, is there anything I have to keep in mind hardware or otherwise? For example CPU manufacturer XYZ doesnt work well with Linux or graphics wont look as good as they would on Windows with a GPU from manufacturer ABC.

Is there anything like that? Or can I just choose as if nothing was different?

Oh and if there are already tons of posts about this, then a good search term would be appreciated or if you have a link, that would be even better (as I didn't find any)

Thanks in advance :)

Insufficient virtual memory: rFactor + d9vk + Lutris

Hello everyone. I'm trying to run rFactor on Lutris with mods, I followed the tutorial "How to add and use D9VK with Lutris" on YouTube but it didn't work, I'm getting the "Insufficient swap space or virtual memory detected" from the game. Also when I'm not using d9vk, game launches but I get a stressing lag which is like 1 frame per second. I followed the Lutris tutorial for graphics and I have the proper drivers installed. my OS is Lubuntu 18.04 and I have an Intel HD Graphics 5500 iGPU. Back when I had arch linux the game ran flawlessly, so that's the reason I need help. Any help is appreciated. Edit: forgot to tell I'm using the latest stable wine build (4.0)

[Fallout 4] ModOrganizer+F4SE = infinite load screen for vanilla saves and newgame - even with zero mods.

wine f4se_loader.exe = saves load fine, new game works fine.

wine ModOrganizer (zero mods) > f4se_loader.exe = infinite loading screen on either new game or load save.

Google has been singularly unhelpful as there's widespread reports of similar issues (although I found none that specifically compared MO(no mods) vs f4se alone) and nothing helpful in the logs to narrow it down.

Anyone had a similar issue, or perhaps some inkling of how I can find what's happening?

I just picked up the game recently, so can't compare to previous behaviours.

Tekken 7 lutris help, 60fps stable dxvk off, green flashes

Hey guys, I can't seem to optimize Tekken 7, specs are:

i5 6600k 4.2hgz

8 gb 2133mhz ram

gtx 1050ti

I'm capable of running T7 on ultra at constant 60fps in windows, but not in linux (manjaro KDE)

No matter how I tweak it, my fps drops. But with dxvk off, it's 60fps stable. Skin color of characters are darker and green flashes happen in menus though. Any advice? I tried wine-staging and all the other guides on various posts but I'm still not successful. Thanks in advance.

Solution for rust's model explosion on linux (patch to disable gpu skinning)


I saw this comment https://old.reddit.com/r/playrust/comments/b9ij5y/qol_update_april_bug_reporting_megathread/ek4v8lz/ (kudos to /u/Herobrine2Nether for finding the possible problem) and decided to see where unity stored this "gpu skinning" option.

So i installed unity 2018.3.3 then i created a project and exported it with and without gpu skinning, then i checked for changes on the exported files. Turns out that the file "globalgamemanagers" stores this setting.

The diff between the exported "projects" that i did yielded the following:

< 00001170: 6761 6d65 7300 0000 0000 0000 0000 0001 games...........

00001170: 6761 6d65 7300 0000 0100 0000 0000 0001 games...........

Then i went to rust's "globalgamemanagers" and searched for that "6761 6d65 7300 0000 01" pattern, then swapped the last "1" to "0" and voi la, the game finally works (though it still crashes some times on the warmup, but i guess that's because of the lack of ram on my pc).

If you don't want to go through the process of editing the file yourself you can grab it here https:// anon file. com /Z4u9m7kcnd/globalgamemanagers (no clue about good file hostings :D) and swap it for the file inside rust_Data folder (make a backup of the old file just in case)

IIRC this problem also happened on windows if -force-vulkan flag was used, so i guess that this should also fix the problem on windows when using vulkan

This worked for me, give feedback about this, now i'm curious if i am just lucky or if this actually fixes the problem, if it does... then... Facepunch... really? it's just a matter of unticking a checkbox and building the game again...

TL;DR; Download this file https:// anon file. com /Z4u9m7kcnd/globalgamemanagers (remove the spaces on the link) and overwrite the existing "globalgamemanagers" file on rust_Data folder

DISCLAIMER: Though i really doubt that you will get banned by doing the patch, there is a possibility, because you are modifying a file of the game (which some cheats do), so, do patch it at your own risk

CSGO set CPU Affinity

Hey guys,

finally after 8 years I updated my rig and went for a ryzen 5 2600x.

Also I finally say goodbye to Windows as any main OS, Manjaro it is.

I got a bit of linux experience from administrating servers, so the transition is a bit easier on me.

Read a bit about ryzen regarding csgo performance wise and people get best results with giving csgo 4 non ht cores.

So I searched google a lot realize this with Linux, found taskset for that matter. Wanted to try it manually but just saw cs gets a lot pids. So is there an easy way to script something, which reads all the pids cs gets and sets the cpu affinity for those? Or does anybody have a better or simpler solution at all?

thank you in advance

Gaming on Windows Virtual Machine on Linux?


I have a Lenovo Ideapad 510, from the research I have done so far the processor (i5-6200U) support V-td technology, so I was wondering would I be able to run a windows virtual machine on a linux system for games that currently don't work with proton or are not native to linux? Or is my hardware just not powerful enough?

Linux gaming 144hz hows it been working out for you ? Would you call it a gimmick?

So it's been few months since Linux gaming seems to have gotten better. Not sure if it's still at a point where it'd beat Windows in terms of performance?

I was having a discussion where I wanted to switch my Intel and nvidia system to amd and was greeted with "Windows is the best period. Linux gaming is nothing but a gimmick for people who insist just on using Linux with no logical reason" . I was also told it'd be pointless to switch from intel and nvidia over to amd as it'd be "performance drop" and that I'd pay for nothing.

Now that kinda triggered me a bit, since I've been trying to read and seen how vulkan and proton have helped people to play games that they couldn't before.

I personally have not been using Linux, since I'm scared to do the jump and not sure if the games I play would work on it and if the game's anti-cheat would think I'm "cheating" .

If I had to go with Distro.. I think I would choose Q4OS since it seems to mimic windows task bar and that stuff that I've been used to. I'm completely a beginner and all I really know about Linux is just "sudo" and that Terminal is pretty important.

Games that I play are: Warframe,CS:GO,Overwatch,Path of Exile, Monster Hunter World, Dark Souls/Sekiro and few MMOs(GW2/WoW/FFXIV/TERA)

So how's 144hz gaming been for you? Would you say I'm better off just waiting a bit longer before doing the jump?

Help getting Shenmue I &amp; II to run. ELI5

I really want to get it to work on Steam rather than Emulate it. I bought it for that reason (When I used Windows) Seeing as how it runs on Linux now even has Gold Rating on ProtonDB.. I can't figure it the hell out xD

I would greatly appreciate it if someone can ELI5 on how to do this.

There is a guide here: https://www.shenmuedojo.com/forum/index.php?threads/request-shenmue-1-ii-for-linux-steam-install-guide-request-even-if-you-dont-use-linux-so-that-linux-users-can-play-the-game-as-well.399/ Stuck on Step 6 and don't get where to go from there.

and on ProtonDB There is a guide to follow up on the shenmuedojo guide

"ollow the ShenmueDojo guide up to Step 7. When editing run, add the following (you can use also use protontricks/winecfg to set xaudio2_7 (native, builtin)): WINEDLLOVERRIDES="dxgi=n;d3d11=n;xaudio2_7=n,b" \ PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC="30" \ If the sound is still garbled, try increasing the latency to 60 or 90. Finally, add the script to Steam. Works perfectly with the Steam Controller - export your configuration from the base game and apply it to the script shortcut."

However, the way they explain is it as if they assume you know more than you actually do. In my case, more than I actually do lol.

I'm running Solus OS.

Anno 1800 only working with strange workaround

I used the Lutris install script to set up Uplay and install Anno 1800, I also switched to wine tkg-4.6.

However I just couldn't get this game to run, in process monitor Anno1800.exe was running, but not even a black screen was showing up, also no errors.

Then I killed Anno1800.exe and suddenly the game started, everything working fine.

Has anybody else experience this behaviour?

Windows 7 no longer supported after Jan. 14 2020. Was considering moving to Linux instead of Windows 10, but mostly use PC for gaming/VR.

Not sure if this is the right subreddit to post this...but here it goes. So the other day a message popped up on my screen after booting up my PC saying that Windows 7 will no longer be supported (security updates) after Jan. 14 2020. I've been wanting to try Linux for a few months now, but I'm afraid most of the games I play won't work on Linux, and I feel like you have to be a programmer to use Linux to its fullest (which I am not)...but at the same time I don't want to upgrade to Windows 10...but I will if I have to. I also have Oculus Rift, and I haven't researched anything about VR working on Linux, if at all. I play Origin games like Battlefield, and Steam games like PUBG, CoD WWII, Insurgency Sandstorm. I've seen some say to use Unbuntu with the Proton distro, or something about Wine, but I haven't actually played around with any Linux distro, let alone Linux at all. I just need something that's most compatible for gaming, easy to use, and maybe something similar to Windows (if that's possible with Linux). I'm sure most of you will just tell me to create a bootable USB and play around with different distros to see what best suits me for my needs, but I was just seeing if anyone out there uses Linux that just mainly plays games on. Thanks in advance.

TL;DR: Total noob to Linux, almost too scared to give it a try. Looking for something easy to use and also mainly supports gaming/VR, but don't want to upgrade to Windows 10 if I don't have to.

Why won't online gaming stores allow you to completely remove a game from your library?

Perhaps this is a gaming question but since I only play games on Linux, I am not certain if posting there would be appropriate for me.

There are games in my library of GOG, Humble Bundle and Steam that I have no wish to play ever again. Be it that I ended them and they no longer have any updated content or they did not work out for me. Perhaps, I got them during their free giveaway or perhaps I paid for them. In either case, I no longer want them in my library.

GOG allows you to hide the game. Sent in some emails about it and they do not remove games from players libraries.

Steam allows you to remove them but you can retrieve them and they stay part of your library in some fashion because when you go the store pages you can still leave reviews for them. Also if you remove them they still count as played and if you happen to go to the store you get recommendations from playing them. You can also hide them in Steam but that offers nothing if you just don't want to see them anymore.

Humble Bundle has no way to remove them or hide them that I was able to find.

Not sure about other stores like Epic, GMG, GameJolt, itch.io and others.

Perhaps, I'm in a very nich minority but I wonder why online stores will not allow you to remove these games completely. I would like fine tune my online library to the games I really enjoy and play. I've tried a few games here and there. I just not feeling them and would like them gone. I tried one RTS game and now I get RTS recommendations for life...

Using Proton in Lutris for Battle.net

So I've seen a bunch of posts here and on Youtube about using Proton and some Protonified Wine in Lutris, but I haven't been able to get it to actually run any games. I have Proton 4.2 selected under runner options and launching Battle.net is fine. When I try to launch Overwatch, it will saying "Playing Now" and that the game is running, but after a few seconds, it goes back to just "Play" and nothing is running. The only interesting thing I see in the log is:

011c:err:seh:setup_exception stack overflow 1552 bytes in thread 011c eip 000000007bc9cc71 esp 0000000000131000 stack 0x130000-0x131000-0x230000

For the record, I can get Overwatch running using plain Wine, and I've gotten games to run through Steam with Proton 4.2. I've seen a few people comment about having a similar issue, but no one gave them an answer, at least not publicly. Has anyone here had any luck with recent Proton versions and Battle.net?

With regard to a Protonified Wine, is the way to build that by compiling from this repo? It says it's an addon script for the other wine-tkg-git build. Can I just build from the link and it be "protonified"?

A possibly unrelated issue, but recently while using just Wine, Overwatch has been crashing to a red screen after a few matches, freezing my computer. I wonder if it's more related to DXVK, but I'm not sure.

Any help with anything is greatly appreciated!

Xbox One S Controller - 3,5MM jack not detected on linux

Hi everyone!

I've been preparing myself to switch from windows to linux. I've used linux before, but switched back to M$ OS. By now, I have all the software alternatives on linux settled, but one thing stops from installing Ubuntu 19.04: it can not detected the 3,5MM audio jack of the Xbox One S controller. I've tried every distro from ubuntu to manjaro with the lastest kernel. No success. I need this to work because my pc's front audio panel is broken and my desktop is too far way for me to connect the p2 in the motherboard's jack. Moreover, I find the audio from the controller to be much more louder.

If anyone has any information regarding this, please share.

Change AMD Freesync Range

So on Windows you can create a custom inf file and install it as a monitor driver, it will force your monitor to display whatever freesync range is designed. My monitor only does 70-144Hz in Freesync and I find it stupid that it won't go lower than that, especially when it comes to emulators.

Is there a way to load a custom edid.bin on Ubuntu/Mint? I already have a modified bin file and I'd flash the edid to my monitor itself only when I try flash it with edid-rw, it doesn't give an error, but the monitors edid never changes. That means it's not flashing successfully whatever is going on. Since it won't work and you can't use an inf file for a monitor like windows, I'm thinking that loading a custom edid.bin on boot would be the best option.

Xbox 360 Controller no longer working with proton games.

Worked fine for a while, not sure what could have changed but controller works fine with native games and "big picture" but no longer works with proton games while still running 3.16-9 or 4.2-3. Controller actually still works in steam itself. Any ideas?

Not able to map joypad inputs in snes9x.


I'm having issues getting snes9x to work with my snes controller which is connected through a USB converter.

The OS recognizes my controller. If I input;

cat /dev/input/js0

I can see that my inputs are being recognized. I've also installed jstest-gtk, and I can also see my joystick there.

However, when I open snes9x-gtk -> options -> preferences -> Joypads, I'm not able to map any of those inputs. I am able to map keyboard inputs.

Does anybody have any ideas on where to go from here? all resources I've found have been unhelpful thus far.

I'm not opposed to manually mapping inputs in the config file. I see when I map up to "e", in the config file it shows

Does anybody know how I might get the "IDs" of my controller inputs?

Problem with Steam Play on Pop OS 19.04

I deleted my Ubuntu MATE 18.04.2 LTS installation and switched to Pop OS 19.04. Jason Evangelho was right, it works out of the box on AMD Radeon GPU. I installed Steam from Pop Shop and Vulkan games (native Linux and Steam Play) run without problem even if I didn't add the Stable Padoka PPA.

However, there are some Steam Play games that won't run no matter what Proton version I use. Here are the games that won't run in my new installation of Pop OS 19.04 but previously run in my Ubuntu MATE 18.04.2 LTS. 1. DOOM 2. The Surge

Now here are the Steam Play games that run without problem. 1. Death's Gambit 2. MOTHERGUNSHIP 3. Wreckfest 4. X-Morph Defense

By the way, I have 2 SSD drives. The 1st one is where I install the OS and native Linux games and the 2nd one is where I install Steam Play games. I only reformatted the OS drive and did not change anything on the 2nd drive. I don't dual boot with Windows so the 2 SSD drives are both in EXT4 file format.

Here is my PC: Intel Core i7 7700 AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB 16GB DDR4 2133 Pop OS 19.04 Linux kernel 5.0 Mesa 19.0.2

I already tried deleting the compatdata folder for DOOM 2016 and The Surge but it doesn't help. I also Steam verified the game files and Proton files and there were no errors.

I hope someone can help.

Thank you.

Fake PUBG on Linux video on YouTube

Hello guys! I just want to notice everyone that there is a youtuber called Sherram Anthmorph who made two videos about playing PUBG on Linux using Wine. Please note that this is currently impossible and I told him why in the comments. First he tried to explain his methods and gave me another fake video proof. I tried his methods but I was sure it won't work. And it didn't. And then he just deleted my comment and blocked my account. Here is a picture about our conversation and you can see here that he is talking about lots of fake stuff. First he told me that I need Proton to run it and then he told that we need wine stable and a 32 bit Linux client..

So watch out for fake news like this.

Origin doesn't work with tkg 4.6 builds in lutris.

I was stuck in a origin update loop. I received an update so I quit origin and run the origin updater script. Then launched origin and it tried to update and failed. I realised the 4.6 tkg build caused issues with origin so switched to tkg 4.5 and everything worked fine.

Lutris runner VS just running standalone?

Dumb question time: I got battle.net up and running in Lutris today, and it seems that Lutris downloads another instance of WINE that's known to work and configures it. Is this preferable over just downloading the client from Blizzard and installing it into my normal WINE installation? I usually belong to the "higher version number = better" school of thought, but does Lutris ever issue updates to their runners in case a better version of WINE for Blizzard games comes out?

Basically, I've heard of Lutris's greatness before but I'm a little skeptical if I need a whole bunch of WINE versions running different programs.

[Help] Steam Play Proton

so i'm having one issue whereas proton ties to append "/drive_c/windows/..../" instead of "drive_c/windows/..." and that leads me to an error because it ends with a double // ? or at least i assume that is what is happening =(
I don't really know if thats what is happening or not, but its the only clue i got from terminal!

it only happens when i try to run games windows outside my home partition(on my NTFS partition), linux native games that are installed in this partition works fine though.

image -> error

bonus problem : any rpg maker game i try to play goes without sound, the rest of my library seems to be working fine though, is it rpg maker related? or i'm i missing something important

Updated a free game after two years - still supports Linux!

Hey there :D

We updated our game "Intra-System: Trust Issues" after a long time (1,5 years after the last update, 2 years after release) and gave it a lot of polish and a bit more content!

We still support Linux although we dropped the 32 bit Linux support since almost no one played it and the vast majority of Linux gamers play on 64 bit systems. We are very happy because the Linux community was always a big part of our community (our largest share is a game called Flufftopia and it has 13 percent Linux downloads which is really large).

If you want to download the updated game you can do it here: https://smokesomefrogs.itch.io/intra-system-trust-issues

Why is linux poor for gaming?

I am a computer science student, and an admirer of the recent Linux gaming initiative. I am keen to bring gaming to open source platforms and to learn no matter how matured the topic is. I am wondering why Windows outperform Linux in gaming, So I picked up books like Jasons Gregory Game Engine Architecture and Tanenbaums Operating Systems. Nonetheless, I could not spot my desired point. I hope to gain some guidance.

What are your favorite Guilty Pleasure games?

What are your favorite games that are often regarded by critics and/or players to be bad or janky but you still personally enjoyed? My best friend and I are kind of connoisseurs of bad games. We enjoy looking at them sitting down and trying to figure them out and what the developer was going for, where they went wrong and finding any kind of redeeming quality or aspects that may be hidden deep down. We enjoy diving into these things blind making a good Let's Play just for our own enjoyment to reflect upon and letting the laughs roll in.

Note I am looking for poor quality of game itself that you still enjoyed and not poor quality of port. Thank you.

Now i know there will be a performance drop off, but are there any tips and tricks to minimize it more then i have? (and yes i installed the latest NVIDIA drivers) It should also be noted i am some what of a Linux noob but i can learn quick. Thanks!

I wrote a simple systemd service to fix control keys while playing Overwatch

Inspired by this comment, I wrote a simple script and systemd service file to fix the control key issue while playing Overwatch.

The service/script checks if OW is running and that it hasn't already switched the control key codes. If those are both true, then it swaps the right and left control key codes. Once OW closes, it swaps them back. Pretty straightforward.

This is the bash script. Put it in ~/bin or somewhere similar. Don't forget to chmod +x it.



while true; do
    pgrep=$(pgrep -i overwatch)
    if [ "$pgrep" ] && [ "$switched" = false ]; then
        xmodmap -e "keycode 37 = Control_R" && xmodmap -e "keycode 105 = Control_L"
    elif [ ! "$pgrep" ] && [ "$switched" = true ]; then
        xmodmap -e "keycode 105 = Control_R" && xmodmap -e "keycode 37 = Control_L"

    sleep 5

This is the systemd unit file. Put it in ~/.config/systemd/user. Replace $script-location with the directory where you put the script.

Description=Swaps the X key codes for the control keys



Now you can systemctl --user enable --now $ow-service, replacing $ow-service with whatever you named the unit file. If your distro doesn't support systemctl --user enable --now for some reason, you can always systemctl --user enable and then systemctl --user start.

Have fun!

Sekiro : Freeze at loading screen (Statue with blue orbs)

GTX 750 Ti / nvidia 418.56

Proton 4.2.3

CPU governor : performance

Graphics : 1080p low

I already tried disabling compositing, playing with Proton 3.16.x and ESYNC but it doesn't work.

Any pointers welcomed !

Running DLL mods through Steam Play

I've been playing Just Cause 4 through steam play and enjoying it, but I wanted to try out some mods and stuff to just mess around with the mechanics. I figured this console mod would be the easiest one to start with and most likely to work since it's just a dll file I add to the installation folder, but it doesn't seem to work for me.

I used WINEDLLOVERRIDES="xinput9_1_0=n,b" %command% as suggested by a previous post but none of the text renders and it destroys my performance. It uses FW1FontWrapper to render text via Direct3d 11 so that's probably the issue. Any ideas on how to fix it? I understand that proton uses DXVK for converting directx stuff to vulkan but I don't know if it's just not being used in this case. Thanks for your help.

Hi guys!

I opened the indiegogo campaign.

PunkCraft is a computer game inspired by Dungeon Keeper 2, dwarf fortress, Minecraft and others.

Settle down and defend your flying island from outside threats with an crafting

and trap system, develop your island, or branch out, explore new islands,

andextract resources you may find in a immense world - alone, or with your friends.


Is there anything special you want me add to game or what did you want to see on my game?

Total Warhammer 1 - Disable Feral Launcher?

This is a minor nuisance, I've googled for a solution with no luck but perhaps someone here has come across a fix. When I launch the game (the Linux version on Ubuntu 16.04) the Feral launcher always nags me that my driver version is unsupported. The tick boxes to 'don't show this again' or to skip the launcher entirely have zero effect. Lately, presumably as part of an update, when I just continue then click 'play' a further nag dialog has been added just to make sure I really want to do this.

Needless to say the game works fine and with WH2 there are no such complaints about the driver version even though you might expect that to be more demanding. It's just a couple of clicks so not the end of the world (that happens in game) but if anyone has come across a reliable way to bypass this please fire away.

Manjaro KDE, FPS drops in rocket League

OS: manjaro KDE System: CPU - Ryzen 1700 GPU - Vega 56 16gb RAM tridentZ @ 3200 M.2 Samsung 970 Evo 250Gb Mobo MSI x370 Carbon

With that out of the way. I got a vanilla install of manjaro with updated drivers and kernel. No extra drivers or optimization since I don't know if I need any? I get 144 FPS but it drops down to as low as 90. When I use Windows I'll get a steady 144 with the occasional dip to 142. Is there something I should install to get steady FPS in rocket League?

Hey guys. So I've gotten DMC 5 running and it runs pretty good I just had a couple of questions. Is there anyway to jump it to 144HZ or am I stuck on 60? #2 the game runs great the only problem is the cutscenes the lip movement is slower than the sound by about a second and it's a bit annoying aesthetically. Could this be from the fix I did so that latter on the end cut scene runs or does anyone else have experience with this game https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/886#issuecomment-458487008 (it says re2 but is for DMC5 as well)?

A Question for new users to Linux Gaming

How has the experience been for you?

Are you still dual booting or have you made the full jump?

How was migration for you?

I love hearing about new users to the Linux scene and seeing how excited they are at the vast differences between Windows and a good Linux Distro.

Currently I still dual boot, and have been for a few years but I started with a 1tb NTFS drive full of windows games/isos/etc and now its only down to 70gb, I slowly cut/paste the windows games that gain better performance on proton over to Solus each time there is an increase of performance or playability with Proton. Sooner or later that 70gb will become non-existent, as will Windows.

Games are ESO, Dishonored death of the outsider, and GTA V

Edit: I should also mention if I use wine to directly open ESO then it works but I can't login because of the way steam works.

How do you handle emulation on Linux? What emulation frontend do you use? Is there anything with batch support and metadata scraping (release date, box art, etc.)?

I've been looking for something along the lines of Playnite, Phoenix, OpenEmu, etc. for Linux. While Emulation Station and Attract Mode are great full-screen applications for "kiosk" devices (Raspberry Pi, etc.), I was hoping for something a bit more oriented towards desktop users. I love being able to sort my entire collection by Genre, Release Date, Metacritic Score, etc. and choose to group by platform, console, etc. Unfortunately, there isn't really anything on Linux (that I know of) that makes browsing a large collection of games easy. Maybe that's because it's only recently that Linux users have had access to so many libraries!

In all seriousness, just adding batch emulation importing to Lutris would make it the ideal solution to having an all-in-one games launcher. GNOME-games-app comes close, but unfortunately doesn't have .zip support - not a deal breaker, but kind of a bad idea to detect the proper emulator based on file extension - especially since it supports Retroarch, which can handle .zip on its own.

GameHub is quite nice too, but feels like it's a little too focused on native Linux games, making it not quite a Lutris competitor (lack of built-in Wine/PlayOnLinux/Proton choices) and not quite an emulation frontend (no batch support or built-in scraping).

While you can batch-add your ROM collection to Steam, this lacks metadata support, so there's no automatic sorting or grouping, making it hard to launch a game unless you already know it by name. The rigid Steam Grid icon format makes adapting the varying aspect ratios of box art difficult as well. Emulation libraries aren't really suited to any of Steam's interfaces (except Big Picture) anyways. Grid view is terribly slow with hundreds of custom images as well.

Steamworks Common Redistributables Updates?

Why do I keep seeing this in my Steam downloads every few days? It really only began when I started using Proton when it came out, but I'm seeing these updates all the time now. I got a 56.6 MB update to it just now. What is this and why does it keep getting updates?

I looked up the package on steamdb.info and it reports the last update to this package 7 months ago. Apparently it contains things like the msvc redistributables, but then why am I even getting this on Linux? Don't games ship their own redistributables that get run in Proton?

If anyone has any idea, feel free to shed some light on the matter.

Where do SteamPlay games store their save files and such?

I'm in the process of migrating over from a dedicated hard drive that's almost out of room to a larger partition on my new drive, and decided it'd be better to just go with a fresh install rather than dd the old filesystem over. But some of the games I've been trying out with SteamPlay don't have Steam Cloud support, so uh... where are my save files? I'm guessing Proton creates a folder somewhere that %userprofile% aliases to, but I haven't found it yet.

Wine on a Chromebook

Hi all, hope newbie questions are okay: I couldn't find an FAQ post.

I'm trying to make Wine work on my Chromebook. I've unlocked the Linux terminal, and have successfully installed the Linux versions of a few apps, InkScape, Python, OpenTTD, and Prison Architect. I've used very basic step-by-step instructions for all of them.

I'd like to play SimCity 3000 (GOG), which I read is a platinum rated game for Wine. However, I can't get it to install. Can anyone provide command-line, click-by-click instructions?

2x 1TB NVMe Dualboot. Proposals how to partition them?


I currently have 1TB SDD dualboot Linux + Win10. Now I bought 2x 1TB NVMe and want to setup a new dualboot system.

I want to play on linux and windows and most games are from steam. Also main disk usage comes from games + some CAD programmes.

I planned to do the following:

  • 1st 1TB: 1 x 500GB Win10 (NTFS) + 1x 500GB Linux (Manjaro) (ext4)
  • 2nd 1TB: 100% NTSF for shared steam library between Linux and windows games and other shared data.

Any arguments against this proposal? If yes why?

Topics not to be discussed here please:

  • Skip windows go full on linux
  • Linux distro

Thanks and waiting for your feedback.

Which HOTAS for my Arch GamingRig ?

hey folks,

now that Elite:Dangerous is working well with proton i buyed myself a joystick (Speedlink PhantomHawk) which added alot of quality to the gameplay.

now iam thinking of buying a hotas instead (hotas is a joystick/throttle combination).

searching the internet for some days obviously brings alot of different posts up from works out of the box with hotas xyz to works not at all.

personally i like the look of the saitek x52 or pro.

my qeustion is are here some saitek x52 users? is it working out-of-the-box? maybe a E:D player?

an alternative is the TM 16000 hotas.

any tips ?

thanks alot

I'm considering making the jump, but there's a few things I'm unsure about

The biggest being how many hoops would I have to jump through to partition a drive that already has Win10 installed, and get an install up and running. The last time I was fighting with that was long before Win10 was even out, so I'm not sure how much of a fight it would be now. I'm working with a prebuilt Lenovo desktop, and while I don't think it would make the process any more annoying, I figure it's worth mentioning.

The second is slightly more obscure, AMD's linux driver lists that it supports the R9 360, but not the R7 360, despite that as far as I know, they're pretty much the same card with only a few minor changes. If any of you know if their driver would work with that card, I'd appreciate the info. (On top of that, if anyone knows if it would work with an R7 integrated GPU, I'd appreciate that info too).

Lastly I see something called OpenRazer as an alternative to Razer Synapse, since Razer doesn't make a linux version, is that my best bet for managing mouse performance/buttons/etc, or is there another option?

Thanks in advance

Laptop not starting if not plugged in

So I have a Gigabyte Aero 15x GTX 1060 edition, and I've installed Pop OS for my development work. However it doesn't boot without the power cable plugged in, it works when I put the computer to sleep instead of turning it off, however a cold start means that it will just hang after the login screen.

I've tried installing Ubuntu LTS 18.04 and Kubuntu as well (same issue), might be a problem with debian...

I've read https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/8gz8wy/installing_ubuntu_mate_1804_on_the_gigabyte_aero/, and it seems like he doesn't have the same issue, I was wondering if anyone was familiar.

Radeon upgrade question

Hi all,

Currently I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 with a Radeon R9 290x with the open source drivers. I'm running FFXIV through Lutris and getting really choppy frame rates. In the city, I get 10-20fps, and in a 4 man dungeon I get 30-35fps. I'm not sure if upgrading the card would help? Would an RX 580 be worth it? Or just make the jump to Vega 56?

Piper not applying settings

This is a repost from /r/linux4noobs

Using a Steelseries Sensei 310 and I'm trying to get Piper to apply settings.

LED settings were set to solid despite being disabled on Windows(through the steelseries software).

DPI settings aren't applied at all, instead setting everything to 100 DPI. Had to reboot back to Windows to get it back to normal.

Received error message "Something went wrong. The device has been reset to a previous state." when trying to do LED and button bindings on the mouse.

The mouse is supported according to libratbag, am I missing something?

On xUbuntu 18.04

Poker Night 2 works decently with D9VK

Steam's FPS counter showed that with D3D9 the game was consistently getting 60 FPS using D3D9. D9VK's HUD says that the game is getting a consistent 45FPS after switching. The game itself also has some minor stutters during scene transitions after installing D9VK, however the textures are much more crisp and the mouse seems to respond much better.

This is all on Fedora 30 with a GTX 1060 on the Nvidia 318 driver.

If I get time I'll make a video and post it.

Help with a distro.

I have been using Ubuntu for a while now and I have just finished watching LTT's video on Linux gaming and have been wanting to finally switch over from Windows. They mentioned POP os and Manjaro and I have used and loved Manjaro in the past. Which do you guys think is better for running games on? POP will be easy since I have experience with Ubuntu and Manjaro will also be great choice since I have experience with it as well as Arch.

wineskin won't work on my mac

So I've just downloaded wineskin on my MacBook Air, it's a Mojave 10.14. It actually runs until I click Test Run, then it says "Do you wish to view the Test Run Logs?"; when I click yes or whatever it brings me to a textedit file, when I click no it doesn't do anything. I've tried to run three CDs so far, and I've downloaded Wineskin twice.

Not sure if it matters, but the CDs I've tried to run are compatible with:

  1. Windows 98 and Macintosh
  2. Windows 95/98/2000
  3. Windows 3.1/95

Thank you in advance!... also if you could please use uhm, "normal" terms in your answer lol, because I'm a TOTAL noob. I'm actually surprised I went so far in the installation process.

Running fitgirl repack setup files (?)

Hey guys, my friend had given me his hard drive which contained many fitgirl repack files. I took a few and wanted to try installing them on my ubuntu machine. I tried running it on wine but ran into some errors. The game is natively playable on Linux, but this is an exe. I was just curious about the process that one would follow to install (if it's even possible). Thank you.

Lutris - Can't install Elder Scrolls Online

I've been chasing what I thought was a [0422/203439:ERROR:network_change_notifier_win.cc(143)] WSALookupServiceBegin failed with: 8 problem, but I get the same error in the logs on the same PC on a Linux Mint install, though it does not hinder downloading/updating/playing.

So! I've been trying to update my "copied" (cp -r /game game/ etc) from another drive to current Manjaro install. I only get the following error:


So, I moved my games directory and began fresh. I started at the Lutris website, ran the install script, and when it got to this part of the actual "install" as you can see once clicking INSTALL I still get the error. My normal "custom" prefixes did not work, nor do the ones baked into Lutris.

Again, same exactly PC (besides the hard drive which has Linux Mint on it) works just fine with Linux Mint. I've been booting to Mint, updating, then copying the data over to my Manjaro install. Manjaro is up to date. I tried wine-stable, wine-staging, the tkg-* wine runners, and I've tried running the Launcher outside of Lutris via WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix /usr/bin/wine(64) /path/to/Launcher without any luck. Each attempt at something different I've wiped the prefix directory. Any suggestions?

Nvidia Drivers 430.09 GTX 1650 Support


Added support for the following GPU:

GeForce GTX 1650

GeForce GTX 1650 with Max-Q Design

GeForce GTX 1660 Ti with Max-Q Design

Fixed a bug that could cause the display to be driven at a low resolution when configuring PRIME display offloading with nvidia-xconfig --prime`.

Added HEVC YUV 4:4:4 decode support to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver.

Added the new per-decoder profile capability bit VDP_DECODER_PROFILE_SUPPORTED_CHROMA_TYPES to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver.

Added new VdpYCbCrFormats VDP_YCBCR_FORMAT_Y_UV_444 and VDP_YCBCR_FORMAT_Y_U_V_444 for accessing YUV 4:4:4 surfaces via VdpVideoSurfaceGetBitsYCbCr() and VdpVideoSurfacePutBitsYCbCr() in the NVIDIA VDPAU driver.

Added support for creation of YUV 4:4:4 video surfaces in the NVIDIA VDPAU driver.

Raised the minimum supported X.Org xserver version to 1.7 (video driver ABI version 6).

Updated the NVIDIA VDPAU driver to support allocating VDPAU video surfaces with explicit field or frame picture structure.

Added support for the GL_NV_vdpau_interop2 OpenGL extension, which allows VDPAU/OpenGL surface sharing with explicit field or frame picture structure.

Picture structure selection by applications can avoid the need for implicit surface structure conversion by the OpenGL implementation.

Updated nvidia-installer for better compatibility with ncurses when libncurses.so.6 exposes the ncurses reentrant ABI, such as on openSUSE Leap 15 and SUSE Linux Enterprise 15.

The super fun and shiny Faerie Solitaire Harvest is released on Steam and we're giving away the Linux version for free (gratis) on day 1!

Puppygames is committed to supporting the Linux gaming community to help it grow, and their way in doing so is free games for the Linux community! (They previously made Basingstoke free on Linux!) We agreed to make the game we are publishing with them (FSH) free too, but I bet you didn't expect us to do it on the day of release!


You can download the Linux version here https://puppygames001.itch.io/faerie-solitaire-harvest

Or buy on Steam for $8.99 while the launch discount is active https://store.steampowered.com/app/348910/Faerie_Solitaire_Harvest/

(We currently do not list Linux support on that store page because there is a lingering issue with SteamOS which prevents us from checking the Linux+SteamOS box but there is a Linux build up on Steam too and so far with testing works on all non-SteamOS versions of Linux.)

As usual if there are problems you find in the game please contact me about them (either here or at brian@subsoap.com) or post about them on the Steam community forum for the game.

There may be some lag with me publishing new builds on itch.io so if you are waiting on an update there for a future version just ping me!

If you love what Puppygames is doing then please consider supporting them on Patreon!

GPU Recommendation?

I'm doing a new build in a few weeks and think I can stomach an upgrade over my poor GTX 960 2GB.

I'm definitely going AMD; even if an Nvidia GPU has theoretically better performance at a given price point, I both don't want to support them and don't want to be in their driver rabbit hole, completely depending on their proprietary package support.

I'll be gaming at 1080p and am not overly invested in FreeSync; my target is playable framerates (comfortably 30+ FPS) in modern games at max settings. I don't game competitively and rarely multiplayer at all so this is adequate for me.

Initially, I was targeting a Vega 56, which is the priciest I'd be willing to go. However, I recently saw some gaming benchmarks for the RX 580 (in Windows) and it's still getting 50-60 FPS on average in current games maxed out. This has made me consider saving a few bucks. After all, even if I lost HALF the frames on Linux it gets on Windows (a worst case scenario I don't anticipate), I'd be near playability.

Other considerations are the well-known issues with Vega on Linux; if I still get reasonably smooth gameplay on a Polaris card without the headaches while also saving a hundred or so bucks, that may be the way to go.

So, thoughts? Should I be safe and reach for the Vega? Will an RX 580 or maybe the little bump of a 590 be good enough? Help a friend avoid buyer's remorse!

[Armikrog] Is there a way to programmatically change a cursor theme in KDE?

I found a way to work around Armikrog double cursor bug caused by some old issue in Unity. I simply made a cursor theme called nocursor with invisible left_ptr cursor (default arrow). That works well in the game, but requires manually changing cursor theme before launching the game. And changing it back after playing (while cursor is invisible) is annoying.

Is there some way to make it from a script? I've seen some ideas like XCURSOR_THEME=foo, but that has no effect for me for some reason.

New User: Moving Wine game to another drive?

Hi All - Just swapped to Manjaro over the last few days - Really liking it so far.

I am having an issue with getting a Wine game moved to another drive. It was installed to the default location when I originally did it all, but the drive is quite small, so I want to get it moved.

When I try just copying the folder from the games directory in Home, I am told there are some invalid file names I have to skip, which of course makes the game not work when I change the executable path and wine prefix to the new location in Lutris.

Is there a proper way I should be moving this? I think the files that are failing are Wine files, so not sure on how to proceed.

Any help is appreciated!

Wanting to go to linux again, but I have a few games that aren't in steam that I think I'll need to dual boot. Suggestions?

I want to go with linux as a main system again after the updates it seems as this is pretty possible to do for the most part. 95% of my games are on steam I just have a couple big ones I play with friends that I'm worried won't carry over.

#1 Division 2 via Ubisoft launcher. Any idea on this one? Haven't heard much on it

#2 The most important is Apex Legends. When I play with friends this is the game we deal the most hours into and I've read it hasn't been working I'm not sure if this has changed / will change soon any idea's on this?

For Distro. I was using Linux Mint and I loved it for what it was I was thinking I could try out POP if that would work better.

A couple things I want to be able to do as smoothly as possible is 1 under volt & overclock my Vega 56 and 2nd Get one of my monitors to run 144hz easily while the other chills at 60.

Other than that I think I'd be set on transitioning over at least for the majority of the time. Help would be appreciated.

Thanks everyone!

Unable to write to new HDD for Steam

Hello, I have a 500gb HDD that is split with 200gb NTFS for Steam Games on my Windows Drive(Win is on an SSD), and I made another 300gb available for Solus as EXT4 (Solus is also on an SSD)

As I install Steam, I cannot for the life of me write to the 300gb EXT4 partition on the HDD. I can only read it.

I've tried mounting through Gnome Disks, and I've tried mounting through Terminal. Both tries, won't let me write a Steam library folder to the drive.

I know about editing the Fstab, I've tried in the past for an NTFS drive but I only broke my installation then lol. Not sure if I'd need to do this with an EXT4 partition though?

Any help would be appreciated.

Why does the Wine team keep making it harder and harder to install Wine?

Can somebody please explain to me why Wine has to change how it's packaged every year? I really wish Wine could just maintain one single repository with all of the required packages in it and we could stop having to update our sources list or update keys all the time.

Back in 2012:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wine

Pre-2017 April:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wine/wine-builds sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install winehq-devel

2017 April:

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key sudo apt-key add winehq.key sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main' rm -f winehq.key sudo apt install -y winehq-devel

Yet now, users can't just copy-paste this, because "bionic" is different for each Ubuntu release.

2018 December:

Same as before but you have to re-add the key file.

2019 April:

Same as before but now we need the FAudio package:

"The quickest and easiest way to satisfy the new dependency is to download and install both the i386 and amd64 libfaudio0 packages before attempting to upgrade or install winehq-devel."

So we have to manually download and install two deb files, which probably will become outdated in the future, in addition to all of the above commands, just to use the latest version of Wine?

Why is the Wine team making it regressively more difficult to install Wine? Ideally I should be able to run one script / one set of commands and then I should not have to worry about setting up Wine again. Package managers are supposed to make keeping software updated easier, not harder.

But the biggest problem of all, with changing how Wine is installed, is that the answers on help forums and places like Ask Ubuntu all become outdated very quickly. Most users will just search for their problem online and get frustrated when the first few answers don't work. Installing Wine should be as easy as possible to discourage users from switching back to Windows.

Ubuntu 19.04 Fractional Scaling Broken (in games)

HiDPI fractionals scaling is an experimental feature in 19.04 and it's amazing (yeah, I know, welcome to the club Ubuntu / Gnome) but unfortunately it's broken in proton games when enabled. It looks like the games pick up the scaling effect in game (ie at 150% the game thinks that the screen resolution is +150%).

Turn it off if your games are getting screwed up.

Witcher 3 Mod/Script Merging

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

So Witcher 3 runs great- wine4.5 + dxvk.

I have spent most of a day attempting to mod the game, specifically with Friendly Meditation - Friendly HUD - Preparations - and Primal Needs.

Biggest issue is WitcherScriptMerger.exe crashes when detecting conflicts. There are quite a few as the Mods deal alot with inventory and meditation scripts.

Now KDiff3 runs perfectly- My eyes hurt from trying to manually merge all the conflicting .ws files, scrolling through miles of scripting code. I am writing it off as impossible for me to do it that way.

Anyone have luck with WitcherScriptMerger?

Anyone have suggestions for using KDiff3?

My computer completely locks up when I've been playing a game for a bit

The only thing I can do is the SysReq REISUB thing when it freezes. It's happened in Alien: Isolation and Slime rancher, but not Factorio, Terraria, or Rimworld. I'm using 4.19.12-arch1-1-vfio, but it happens with the normal 5.0.8 kernel as well. Intel i5-8600K, AMD Vega 56, 16GB Ram, 8 Swap. I monitored the temperatures while I played. GPU was at 56, CPU 75. I figured it was a GPU issue, so I did journalctl -b-1 | grep amdgpu and I got this. Normal journalctl just adds wifi related stuff. Anyone know what to do? I can't really game until it gets fixed

What I need to switch.

I have always been interested in Linux but am a huge gamer. I would use Linux but the games I play aren't supported. ie: AC Origins (etc.), Just Cause (3-4), and Forza. I also don't know about emulator support. What I'm saying is unless most/all of the games are supported I won't switch. That being said, is there a way to make UWP Apps work? How do more games get supported. I'd like feed back on this topic thx.

From Windows OEM to Linux

Hey guys! I would like to install my Arch system on my Windows OEM machine, but I'm affraid that I will loose the license for my computer (Win 10 home OEM). I know that when I install Windows 10 and activate the code for it, the mainboard will register the code, so I won't loose access for it. Is this true? I use Linux for 3 years for now, but I had no bravery to fully switch for it (I dual booted it with two different HDD). Anyone has experience with this? Thanks for the answers!

I'm amazed how good wine cross compatibility has gotten in the last year alone.

I've been using Linux as a daily for years and the main drawback was games, but I always kept a black sheep HDD with windows around to play with friends. I usually spend my money only on Linux supported games, but about 7 months ago I set up starcraft 2 in wine. It ran great, I was pumped.

Recently, I grabbed Assassins creed unity for free and worked getting it running in wine. My wine and graphics drivers were a bit out of date, so I upgraded things and decided to try Lutris and it worked perfectly out of the box.

So I decide to step it up, I look at some games on protonDB and lutris, and install Subnatica through Epic, and GTA V through steam. Both are flawless. I can't believe even games like this are working so well.

I remember years ago, getting a game like Fallout New Vegas working was a chore, now even these big games with side programs that need to work together just work on the first or second try. I can confidently suggest these games on linux to even less tech savvy friends.

I don't hang out in gaming communities much but I want to give a big thanks to the community drive and the developers that have made this possible. Even LTT is talking about Linux now.

Unsuccessful attempt to update the app on macOS

Hi, guys!

I have an issue with the last update od MtG Arena on my mac.

I remove wine from Applications - uninstalled it. After that, I install new wine and I couldn't uninstall the last version of the game, because my wineskin uninstaller doesn't detect any installed programs.

I can't game, because of arena crush during launching.

I tried to remove all wineskin and install the game again, but it didn't work, due to wine detect arena as installed program( which not installed - I can't launch again).

I tried to rebuild wine, and use a new exe file - but it didn't work as well.

I tried to use terminal to remove all wine file:

rm -rf ./wine.*

rm -rf ./wine*

rm -rf ./.wine*

rm -rf ./.wine.*

But it didn't work either.

Unfortunately, I got this notification:

No new executables found!

Maybe the installer failed...?

If you tried to install somewhere other than C: drive (drive_c in the wrapper) then you will get this message too. All software must be installed in C: drive.

Does anyone struggle with this issue too?

Can't increase videomemorysize through Wine Linux

I'm experiencing frequent crashes with a game due to not having enough memory allocated. I've tested my Vram available, and it's way below what it should be.

I'm playing it through Wine and Winetricks. I found this command to modify available memory:

winetricks videomemorysize=x

Problem is when x is greater than 2048, I receive the following error:

Unknown arg videomemorysize=x

I have 8192 memory hardware wise and I'd like to make that available to Wine.

What puzzles me is doing internet searching can't find me a solution, there's a guy reporting the same error as me four years ago and apparently a solution was never found.

I also typed into a terminal:

wine regedit Then went to > HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Wine > Direct3D and modified video memory size to 8192, but it doesn't appear to have had any positive impact.

Any idea why I can't increase the videomemory? What can I do to increase it?

My tool tells me that I only have 1664 Mb video memory available.

Using Ubuntu MATE for whatever it's worth.

Told my buddies 4 years ago that as soon as Linux could play most of my steam games that'd I'd go back. Just found out about proton 2 days ago. I'm back and loving it! Wife and I can play risk of rain 2 and both be happy. Although I wish I didn't have to keep a partition for windows for MechWarrior online and destiny 2 but other than that no complaints at all.

Anyway y'all are awesome and I'm so glad I found out this was a thing!

Proton games won't start from NTFS drive

I know this was already posted many times, but the solutions posted so far didn't work for me. In the last minute I found a solution, but still posting here, in case someone with the same problem googling for help, they could find something here.

Background: after many years of Windows gaming, I've decided to try Linux gaming. Unfortunately I was only able to create a small partition for Linux. So I was planning to use my existing steam library from Windows, which is on an external USB hard drive with a huge NTFS partition. My internet connection is pretty had, so that is another reason why I didn't want to download the games again.

Linux native games run fine from the NTFS drive, but most of the proton games didn't start. Proton log didn't show any helpful error or warning messages. I clicked play, "preparing to launch..." appeared a little, then after the name of the game I could see "Running", but it disappeared in less than a second, nothing more happened. I also had an empty steam library on the ext4 partition, and I noticed that if I move a game to that library (I was experimenting with a small game) then it runs. If I move it back to the NTFS partition, it stops working again.

The first suggestion on the internet is to change the mount parameters in /etc/fstab. I tried several combinations, none of them worked. Second suggestion was to create a symlink on the NTFS driver to the compatdata folder in the ext4 steam library. Nothing changed with that.

Finally I moved the games from the steam library to some other folder on the NTFS drive. I created a symlink on the ext4 drive to the game forder on the NTSF drive (in the steamapps/common subfolder) and I also moved the corresponding appmanifest file from the NTFS drive to the ext4 one in the steamapps folder. So I suppose steam was thinking that the game is in the ext4 steam library, while it was really on the NTFS drive. All the games I tried so far was working with this change.

If someone knows a better and more elegant solution, please post here.

Bioshock 2 Original/Remastered Wine DXVK troubleshooting (low-res graphics)

I'm creating this post for anyone who comes across the same problem as I did while trying to play Bioshock 2 via Wine. Installation was smooth via Lutris but there was a problem: upon starting the game, graphics looked extremely low-res and hitting ESC to bring up the menu caused the game to crash.

SOLUTION: DISABLE ESYNC! It does not work well with Bioshock 2 at all. This applies to both the original and the remastered version. I hope this helps some people because I was not able to find anything useful on search engines.

What I used:

GUI: Lutris

Wine version: tkg-protonified-4.6-x86_64

DXVK version: 1.0.3

Esync: OFF

Feral gamemode: On

Lets reflect on our individual and collective success as Linux Users and a Gaming Community

Our collective efforts particularly in the last decade have had an incredible yield in content and software and tooling improvements across the Linux ecosystem.

ProtonDB reports 4,516 games running with 39,184 reports written by our users.

Steam reports there are 12,557 games, dlc and other products on linux.

Major engines have been ported, new state of the art graphics stacks have been built, drivers have come up, layers like FNA, FAudio, DXVK and many other projects have been pioneered and spearheaded with great success.

No matter how big or small, we have all had an effect on our immediate community and the world at large.

I want to personally thank everyone for their investment of time, energy and resources to make Linux Gaming the success that it is today whether you are a Linux news god, or just someone who helps other users out with tech support, we are all part of the wheel and make the Linux Gaming Machine roll and work.

We've come far, and no doubt we'll have new ground to trek one day at a time, but I think a reflection on our collective successes is overdue if we haven't already.

So to everyone out there, congratulations! And stay awesome!

Is there a way to configure Proton to properly upscale programs on high dpi monitors?

I've grabbed RPG Maker MV for some rapid dev experiments (and also just for fun), but when running it on linux via Proton, the UI is freakin' tiny -- apparently the Steam client's high dpi setting doesn't carry over. :(

Is there a way to tell proton to scale the software it runs so I don't have to dual-boot into my Windows partition to make this usable?

Screenshot of stage 34

There source code is available on GitHub and some binaries are up on itch.io; the github version is more up-to-date than the itch version, so best compile from source if you can.

itch.io: https://parallelrealities.itch.io/water-closet

Github: https://github.com/stephenjsweeney/wc

The game is only up to v0.4 and doesn't save your progress just yet, but at least you can reconfigure the control (with the github version).

Should prove an amusing distraction for some ;)

Question about game launchers...

Sorry if this has been asked before but I'm kinda new to this whole Linux gaming thing.

When it comes to games that require a 'launcher' (Such as Battle.Net or uPlay) can I just install the launcher using Lutris and then install the game through the launcher like normal or should I install the game using the Lutris installer?

I'm asking because I noticed there was an installer for Battle.Net (https://lutris.net/games/battlenet/) and a separate one for Diablo 3 (https://lutris.net/games/diablo-iii/).Installing Diablo 3 also installs Battle.Net so you end up with two installs of Battle.Net.

I'm assuming installing any other Blizzard game would result in Battle.Net being installed as well which would result in multiple instances of the launcher.

(Hope that makes sense)

Whats the proper method of installing games like this?

Serious Sam 3: BFE (Fusion 2017) as a Vulkan stress tester

Just want to share this to anyone who is looking for a Vulkan stress tester.

Serious Sam 3: BFE has a built-in benchmark. Choosing the "Under the Iron Cloud" level for the benchmark and setting the duration to No Time Limit will make the benchmark run for about 22 minutes.

With everything set to Ultra with MSAA and all blur settings manually disabled at 2560 x 1080 resokution, my Radeon RX 580 manages to reach 80 to 90 FPS in the area with lots of buildings. In the large open field of the boss fight, frame rate is around 100 to 110 FPS.

Those with more powerful GPU's can enable 4x MSAA or 8x MSAA. There's even an SSAA (Super Sampling Anti-aliasing) for those who have really fast GPU's.

I know F1 2017 has a built-in benchmark that can be infinitely looped for stress testing but it's not that demanding (no MSAA or SSAA) and I don't think many have a large SSD to retain a 35-GB game just for stress testing.

If someone has ideas for other Vulkan benchmarks / stress test, just comment here :)

warframe launcher works but crashes when launched

i've been trying to get warframe working using the steam play's proton after seeing that the launcher got fixed.

i'm on a fully ~amd64 multilib gentoo install, everything is fully updated and all the other dx10/11 games i tried with dxvk+wine and proton launches properly.

i tried both with the gloriouseggroll's proton-4.6-ge-2 and steam's proton-4.2-3, both causes the same thing to happen.

after a bit of a research, i found out that for warframe to work with steam's proton, you need to either plug a controller or run xboxdrv as a system service. i installed xboxdrv and ran it as a system service, saw that steam registered it as a controller when i launched it from a terminal.

anything i can do to fix this?

i'm using a 7.5th gen/haswell intel modesetting driver.

enbhost.exe not launching, Ultimate Skyrim

I'm wanting to play Ultimate Skyrim on Linux. It seems to work except for the horrendously unavoidable memory allocation crashes I'm receiving.

I checked active processes that are running when I launch Skyrim, to see if enbhost.exe is running like it should do, but it's not. I figure not having enbhost/enboost aiding the memory is what's causing the memory to result in a CTD.

Do I have to do anything to make enbhost run on Linux? Is it possible that it is running, but just isn't showing up in a process list like it would on Windows?

I tried installing Emire Earth from GOG on my POP OS System.

The Problem is that i can run GOG and i installed Empire Earth but everytime i start Empire Earth it shows the starting Screen and then crashes. Its not even a Black screen or something , just the starting "banner". The resolution of the monitor isnt normal after that. From about 1366x768 to 800x600. I looked that Problem up but i havent found a good fix.

I updated the packages before starting (all packages on the system).

Its an old Laptop but its definetly working since its working on the Win 10 OS on the Laptop.

Will they ever work? Is there a work around like running them on a windows 7 or 10 virtual machine on top of the linux distribution I would be using?

No Man's Sky Performance

Hey all. I am pretty new to Linux gaming and have been playing No Man's Sky using the latest version of Valves Proton.

I am using Pop!_OS 18.10. I have an i5 9600k, 16GB RAM a 512GB NVMe and I RTX2080 (upgraded last week from a GTX980 Ti)

Basically gaming at 1440p with settings on high I can just about manage 60fps with constant frame drops. Weirdly, my performance did not change one iota when upgrading from the GTX 980 To to the RTX 2080.

Anyone else playing No Man's Sky? How's your performance? Obviously I understand this is running though a comparability layer and is not going to perform as well as the PC version.

Are any of you aware of any performance tweaks I could add?

Has anyone managed to compile Ryan 'icculus' Gordon's sdl12-compat (SDL 1.2 to SDL 2 compatibility layer)


A month ago, Ryan 'icculus' Gordon informed people on his Patreon page that he revived sdl12-compat project which is essentially a compatibility layer that provides SDL 1.2 API backed by SDL2.


Although, there exists a similar project called SDL Compatibility Library (SDLCL) which does pretty much the same, it hasn't been updated for months and in need of bug fixing.


I wonder if anyone managed to compile sdl12-compat? The project seems require cmake to compile it but I am seriously ignorant in such areas.


Any ideas? Thanks!

Need help with League of Legends (gimme a damn Linux client already)

Hey guys/girls/whatnot

i recently switched from Win10 to Manjaro Deepin because i use Linux at work and wanted to make the switch after seeing the LTT video!

Now i have a testing Laptop (T480s) which was hard enough to get running lol but sadly i can't run the normal Lutris League of Legends because Wine always tries starting but instantly says:

Wine: access denied

League of Legends is under /home/me/Games/Leagueoflegends (standard path of Lutris)

I installed lutris as me and NOT as root so there shouldn't be a problem.

If i run LeagueClient.exe without Lutris Wine just crashes after the Game Lobby since it seemingly can't open up the actual Game?!

Maybe some folks here can help

Thanks in advance

Which Linux Distro for a Game Developer?

Hey Linux community,

After I developed some games for Linux but was mainly using Windows, I wanted to switch more or less completely. Windows 10 is an absolute nightmare, Ads in the start menu, updating my system when I put it in hibernation and deleting all my unsaved files, massive privacy issues and is just taking too much from my system ressources. I hate Windows and I really hate MacOS.

The thing is I don't have a lot of experience with different Distros. My ThinkPad X220 is running Lubuntu at the moment but on top of that I don't have any experience.

What I need is something

  • that is relatively easy to use, I'm not very patient.

  • active development

  • doesn't need to be one of the major distros shouldn't be too obscure

  • that is lightweight

  • that is stable

  • easy to install

  • where I can do more or less advanced video editing, making a bit of music, using Unity3D, Gimp. I don't mind to switch from FL Studio and DaVinci Resolve to open source programs, that is no problem and I already use Blender (this program is a gift). I just don't want to switch from Unity. I need to use a drawing tablet.

  • starts fast

  • Steam works reliable

Bonus (optional)

  • Gaming Performance

  • Even more private (no systemd)

  • Dumb people friendly community

  • most programs I need are preinstalled (Gimp, Video editing software, Wine or a competitor)

  • LTS version

  • good support for different network cards and good network stability

  • shortcut support? Is there like a program? I would like to use a Razer Ornata Chroma and rebind a lot of the keys but that's optional.

I use a i7-4790 paired with a RX570 (8GB) and 32 GB of RAM (two sticks of 1066 CL9, two sticks of 1600 CL9), Samsung SSD 860 Evo. I use it with three different displays (1920x1080, 2560x1440, 1280x1024).

I think about dual booting but I want to do most of my work in Linux.

I thought about Manjaro, Lubuntu or VoidLinux but I still want your recommendations. Thank you very much for your time, I really appreciate that :)

LinVam - Linux based Voice Activated Macro tool

While the catalogue of games available via SteamPlay is growing daily including the number of VR titles the one area which Linux Gaming has seriously been lacking is the user support tools. A Linux equivalent of VoiceAttack for instance was not available so I hired a freelancer to write me a small application to monitor voice commands and perform actions to key phrases.

The project is written in python3 and utilises the Pocketsphinx Voice to Text engine. It supports profiles and allows you to add voice commands and complex action responses including keyboard, mouse movement and ability to execute system command such as opening an application.

The tool is available on my github https://github.com/aidygus/LinVAM

A small demonstration of using the tool with Elite Dangerous


If anyone wants to contribute to the project then please feel free to fork it. There are some UX issues which need addressing which are listed in the readme as well as some planned features further down the line. but all in all it is a functional voice to text macro tool which is certainly making my gaming experience a lot more enjoyable.

I've seen on Youtube that people have gotten this working, but it just keeps crashing on startup for me. After I hit "Play" in Origin, a black window appears titled "Mirror's Edge Catalyst" and eventually crashes after a good 20ish seconds.

I've tried this with Wine Staging 4.5 on my own prefix (which works fine for other DXVK games on Origin, like Mass Effect Andromeda) as well as the Lutris script for Catalyst to the same result on both.

PC crash while playing CS GO

From few days, my PC is crashing in the middle of my gaming session on Steam. I used to play it for more than 5 hours and never had a crash. I open Steam, start playing CS GO and the PC crashes, one important point is, when I start my PC immediately, I am still on my Steam-CS GO page and all the other processes like firefox, calligra are still open and my PC is disconnected from internet. I connect via a LAN from my WiFi router.

My PC specs follow.

Operating System: Fedora 29

KDE Plasma Version: 5.14.5

Qt Version: 5.11.3

KDE Frameworks Version: 5.55.0

Kernel Version: 5.0.7-200.fc29.x86_64

OS Type: 64-bit

Processors: 8 AMD Ryzen 5 2400G with Radeon Vega Graphics

Memory: 6.8 GiB of RAM


To test that Steam/ Steam-CS GO game play is causing this, I have uninstalled Steam and used my PC for about 10 days and never encountered a crash. When I uninstalled Steam , my average usage of PC was around 3 hours from boot to shutdown and 10 hours of usage per day. Activities include browsing, simple java programs and utility apps.


Is or had anyone encountered this issue and any possible solutions to it?

but who exactly are the maintainer of this third-party repositories? As far as I can tell they are not official maintainers from Canonical
do people just trust them because they don't want the manual work of building packages them self?

With the advances in Proton, has anyone changed their feelings towards native vs. Wine/Proton?

My opinion has always been a more moderate, "I'd like native games, but if the game runs in Wine with no issues i don't have a problem with that" and Proton has made the process even better. I'm now wondering if it even bothers me if a developer doesn't release a native version of the game, so long as their Windows version runs flawlessly via Proton.

I know this thought is anathema to a lot of readers on this subreddit, but I'm curious: has anyone else had their opinions on this changed?

[Proton][Question] How to reset wineprefix for a game?


Example 1: I have installed .NET framework for some games but now with Proton 4.2-3 we have wine-mono installed by default. I want to test these games but with a clean prefix to see what games work and what games don't work out of the box.

Example 2: I installed some libraries with protontricks to test Dark Souls mouse mods in the past (I'm no wine expert, so this was more of a trial and error thing). Now I want to have a clean prefix and document better what I install, what works, and what doesn't work.

Divinity Original Sin 2 with WINE

I am sorry if this is the wrong place to post. I have Divinity Original Sin 2 through GoG and downloaded all the files.

Anyone playing Heroes of the Storm? My game launches but it's unplayable due to lag/stutter.

Can't really figure out what I've done wrong. Running Ubuntu Budgie 18.04. I have the latest nVidia drivers installed (418) and run a GTX 1070 Ti. Wine is working great. Lutris is working great. DXVK and Esync enabled. I've tried windowed and full-screen mode but that makes no difference for me. Not sure what else I can do to make it playable. On Windows 10 it runs as smooth as silk as it always has.

Problems installing 2 games with Lutris

I posted here a couple days ago asking whether or not I could install Kerbal Space Program and GTA V on Linux.

I have used Lutris to attempt to install both games, and both times I've run into problems:

  1. KSP keeps coming up with an error saying a particular destination path already exists (this came up the first time I tried to install it, when there was no destination path there)
  2. GTA V (Social Club version) is asking for an installer file and I'm not entirely sure what it means/what file to use

Ubisoft recently release AC Unity for free this week and i thought i would try it out with lutris. I installed uplay from lutris and then downloaded AC Unity. upon starting the game it would show the splash intro screen and then stop playing. to fix this you have to install directx manually. to do this i opened up terminal in the directx folder in AC Unity that is in Uplay folder. i used this command WINEPREFIX=/home/USERNAME/Games/uplay/ wine "DXSETUP.exe" After that just start uplay as normal and the game should work.

How well can a PC with these specs run games with Linux? (Solus btw)

I'm building a new PC, and I've been playing around in Solus OS on my laptop and I love it! When I game it however, My fps spikes pretty badly compared to windows.

How well will a computer with these specs run games on Steam? (roughly speaking)

- Sapphire Radeon ITX RX 570 4gb GPU

- Ryzen 5 1600 CPU

- 8gb ram

What kind of settings would I be able to play at roughly? Would there even be a difference between windows and linux? I did a lot of research on this topic already but I wanna see what reddit thinks.

Talking about relatively modern games like RO Tomb Raider or Total War Warhammer, I know my machine will run league or Overwatch just fine!

I'd also like to hear people's game experiences with other distros

On the fence about switching and looking for a push.

TLDR; 1. is overclocking different with linux? Best tools? | 2. RGB control, is it a thing? | 3. monitors of different refresh rates 60/144 | 4. chrome cast support through browser?

So I am on the fence about hoping over from windows for my battle station. I am pretty familiar with Linux from a development point of view but I've never used it for gaming and I have a couple questions about some stuff holding me back. I have used Linux in school as all the lab PCs were running it and my old laptop (R.I.P.) was running Ubuntu. I have been thinking about it for a bit and that new LTT video gave me a new rush of inspiration to really consider it for real (And it introduced me to this wonderful subreddit!)

I have done a little bit of research into some of these and I have been unable to find current answers to theses question so far. I also figured I'd ask the experts before I sink too much of my time into it. I would probably try out Manjaro although I haven't settled on anything yet.

  1. Overclocking: I'm currently running an i5-9600k and and 1660Ti. How does GPU overclocking work on linux? is there a GUI tool (Like MSI afterburner)? whats the best way to go about it?. And will the different OS have an effect on the stability of my current overclock (GPU and CPU), can I expect the hardware to perforce the same or does the OS have any effect on how far I can push my components? Lastly whats the best stability/stress test people use? and best monitoring tool(s)?
  2. RGB control: I know some people think its dumb but I spent money on these parts and I don't want them to look like rainbow barf all the time. I have no idea how current it is but from what i've read this might be challenge. I have found some stuff on GitHub that might work but most of it seems kind of old and un-maintained. What the best solution here? I'm not looking for anything fancy but I at least want to change everything to a static color of my choice. I have G Skill Trident RGB Ram, Corsair LL120 RGB fans with the node pro thingomabob, RGB logo on the GPU and some case lights going through the RGB headers on my board. I'm fine making my own script for it if i have to as long as its not going to take me weeks of work to figure it out. I know its dumb that stupid lights are potentially holding me back from the freedom that is linux but I'm a new desk and some cable management away from posting my baby to r/battlestaitons.
  3. How is support for monitors of different refresh rates. Ive got my main 144Hz monitor and a secondary 60Hz one. I know windows doesn't always play nice with these but is Linux better or worse?
  4. Chrome cast support: I know this is an odd one but I often download movies and then stream them to my TV with the chrome cast through the chrome browser. Wondering if that will work the same as on windows?
  5. Any other hurdles I might encounter that im missing if I switch my main PC from windows to Linux? I don't really use MSoffice so I'm cool ditching that.

Now some of you might be thinking, why not dual boot and try for yourself... well I cut some corners on my build and I don't have a lot of storage and I don't want to wipe my windows until I know Linux can meet my needs. I plan on getting more in the next couple months but if i can switch now why not. I also plan to play around with some stuff just booting off a USB to see if I can figure some of this out myself but I'm bored at work so I'm asking here first. If you guys can help me out with this stuff you will likely have another convert by the end of the week! Thanks in advance for any help!

No Man's Sky: Vulkan performance fix on AMD Vega cards

Recently, Hello Games released experimental version of the game with Vulkan renderer instead of OpenGL, however, it suffers approx 50% performance penalty on Vega 56 + MESA drivers.

"To play in Experimental, right-click on No Mans Sky from the Steam library page and select Properties. Among the available tabs will be the BETAS tab. Enter 3xperimental in the textbox and click Check Code. experimental Experimental will now be available in the dropdown menu under Select the beta you would like to opt into."

What you basically need is AMDVLK driver instead of RADV delivered by MESA.

For Ubuntu and derivatives you can download .deb package and install it like any other application.

Arch users can build/install it via AUR

This driver can be installed along side of MESA - it will be recoginzed as additional device

Thankfully unlike some other games NMS allows switching rendering device via graphic options menu - just select 'Radeon RX Vega' instead of 'AMD RADV VEGA10' restart the game and you're set.

Performance improvement over OpenGL, is MASSIVE Also, terrain tesselation doesn't degrade performance to unplayable levels anymore.

Have fun :)

Losing Mouse/Keyboard Input on Window Focus

A bit of a long problem, sorry!

I run Gwent (through GOG) on my default Wine prefix. The game itself runs fine, with all graphics/visuals displaying correctly once you drop the correct DLLs into the game file.

The issue I'm having is if I start the game, and click on something on my other monitor, when I go back to Gwent my mouse/keyboard input completely cuts out. All I can do is force close the game. The same issue occurs if I alt-tab to another window, I can't get back the focus of the game.

My initial fix for this was to change winecfg so that the mouse was automatically captured in the window. Whilst this does work it means I can't use my other monitor at all while playing Gwent.

I've tried running the game in a virtual desktop, tinkered with some more winecfg settings, running it on the other monitor, changed some KDE window manager settings and installed GOG through Lutris and none seem to solve the issue. The problem only occurs with Gwent, no other games.

No doubt there is some combination of winecfg/KDE settings that will resolve this and I would really appreciate any help/suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

Questions before switching to Linux

Hi, I been interested with Linux and wanting to switch from Windows as my daily driver which of course includes gaming. I would like to ask a few questions before making the switch.

Q1: Any recommended distro for newcomers?

Q2: I don't have a decent enough PC so FPS can be a concern to me. I would like to know what kind of performance difference I would expect when compared to Windows?

Q3: Is there any programs on Linux similar to Rivatuner? (FPS limiter)

Q4: Beside gaming, I would also like to know a few recommended programs to do light photo and video editing.

Thank you for reading this, I hope I can get my questions answered >.<

My experience on using Sony DS4 on Linux

Sony DS4 works out of the box through Bluetooth on Ubuntu MATE 18.04.2 LTS / Linux kernel 4.15. Just hold Share button and PS button at the same for about 5 seconds. It will enter pairing mode then just select it in the list of active Bluetooth devices.

The touchpad also works on the desktop. It's perfect for couch gaming. Here are the functions I tested: 1. Double tap - open files 2. Single tap - select files or click buttons of windows/apps 3. Two finger tap - equivalent to mouse right click 4. Press touch pad then drag finger - equivalent to mouse left click and drag

Now, for the game compatibility. All on Steam / Steam Play except for Enter the Gungeon.

Games where it works: 1. Dead Cells 2. DiRT 4 3. Enter the Gungeon 4. Hollow Knight 5. Mad Max 6. Smith and Winston 7. Wreckfest

Games where it doesn't work: 1. CrossCode 2. Death's Gambit 3. Devil May Cry 5 4. RUINER

I hope newer Linux kernels would fix the issue of Sony DS4 not working is some games. I find this gamepad perfect for couch gaming, no need for keyboard and mouse to access basic functions of desktop.
