Can i get microsoft-like Spider solitaire on Linux?

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

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

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

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

Lutris game freezes gnome after switching to amdgpu-pro

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

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

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

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

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

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

Im running Ubuntu 20.04 and I have an RX 580.

Thanks Im advance!

Help running games through steam

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

Black Mesa won't load - HELP

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I need some help running a bat file on wineconsole

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

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

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

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

After 4 years, my sci-fi survival adventure about exploring an alien ocean is nearly to v1.0. Now we just need to playtest!

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

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

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

How to properly use Lutris?

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

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

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

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

How can I play AFK Arena in Linux Mint

AFK Arena works flawlessly in Bluestacks or NOX, but sadly these emulators don't work in Linux.

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

Hi all,

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

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

Black Mesa isn't a linux-native game?

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

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

Running games that do not need installation with PlayOnMac

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

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

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

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

Ive released the Python Version of IfOnlyIWasRIghtHanded

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

Do I need a dedicated graphics card?

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

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

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

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

Any insight on the matter would be great.

My Experience Modding Mass Effect Legendary Edition on Linux

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vortex Mod manager "access denied" spam file permission issue

I am trying for few days to mod my skyrim se on manjaro linux. I at least managed to install vortex mod manager now, but i ran into new problems.

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

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

CS:GO performance

I have some performance issues on my linux. I tried ubuntu, manjaro and windows 10, to make sure where is the problem. Manjaro seems to perform 10-15% better than on ubuntu. But what is the case:

I have some fps drops, from 150fps, to 40fps. Most visible drop is when the game starts, and I see all of my mates. When I turn back, I have something around 130fps.

Gzdoom only launches about 1 in 5 times with wayland?

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

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

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

Any thoughts would be appreciated thanks!

In a hypothetical future where Linux and Windows are neck and neck could we end up seeing a universal binary/executable being created for easy access to both markets?

Like for example a single version of a game that would run on Windows/Linux/FreeBSD

How do you enable fsync on openSUSE Tumbleweed?

After doing some web searches I could only find guides for other distros. Does anyone here know how I could enable it and ensure that it's applied to each new kernel release.

Cyberpunk 2077 won't even launch, stops running before any window is shown

Hey everyone. From what I've seen, cyberpunk(steam version) is supposed to run really well on proton via steam. I've barely seen anyone with issues(except for the memory leak in the nvidia driver 470). However, for me, it hasn't been able to start at all. I know my system can run it, I've ran it on windows a week ago with a solid 60fps.

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

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

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

[New to linux] 15 FPS on Splitgate

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

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

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

My specs are:

Distro: Pop!_OS 21.04 (Nividia version)

CPU: Intel i7 8700

GPU: GTX 1060 3GB

Main Monitor: Samsung g5 odyssey 144hz 1440p

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

Any help is appreciated.

Full-screen games reset my display settings

Hey guys,

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

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

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

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

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

All help is appreciated, thanks!

winetricks can only set vram size up to 2048?

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

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

System wide mic noise cancellation.

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

So far I've found these 3 options:

Cadmus (Las release on November 2020)

NoiseTorch (Last release on June 2021)

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

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

Error Rockstar games launcher in Lutris

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

Do you know any that can happen?

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

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

I'm using WINE_FSR_STRENGTH=1 as a param, so sharpness is a bit off, but I kinda prefer that way.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi everyone!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

240hz on Samsung G9 still an issue?

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

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

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

Lutris - Origin: Loads games in broken window?

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

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

Advice would be nice. Thanks!

What issues should I expect with my planned setup?

Hey there,

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

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

Windows media encoder on wine?

Hi there!,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Steam is shipping the steam deck running arch with KDE.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Context 1:

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

.

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

.

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

Context 2:

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

News:

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

Installation:

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

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

No more vulkan on older AMD GPU?

Mint 19.1 Kernel 5.7 MATE 1.20.1

GPU: R9 280X

CPU: R5 2600

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

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

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

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

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

What optimizations have you done for your system?

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

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

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

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

Games working fine, rest of desktop stuttering and lagging

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

System information:

-- Software --

Distro: Arch Linux

Kernel version: 5.14.2-arch1-2

GPU Driver: nvidia 470.63.01-7

Display server: X11/Xorg

Window manager: BSPWM

Compositor: Picom

-- Hardware --

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

GPU: NVIDIA GTX 1650 4GB VRAM

Memory: 16GB

The problem:

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

Example of games I have tried playing:

- War Thunder

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

Solutions I have tried:

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

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

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Edit: fixing some words

Little help with Wasteland 3

Hey, hey.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Things I have tried:

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

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

Two observations that may not mean anything:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Error running Yume 2kki

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

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

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

Any fellow SteelSeries and Linux enjoyers out there?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TF2 Raw input is WAY too fast.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

***

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

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

Best SSD storage solution?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Your help is appreciated.

GTA V won't launch on Ubuntu Steam

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

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

Other games work normally.

Steam Linux Bug.

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

System :-

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

Its Splitgate.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks for your time and help!

Steam proton crashes after launching games

Hello. I've recently moved to Manjaro Linux and proton seems to just not work for me. I can play games with proton if I download them to my main drive but I cannot play them if i download them to my secondary hard drive.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The video is below.

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

Alternatively for people who prefer written guides see below.

Step 1. Install git

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

sudo apt install git

Alternatively for Arch based distributions.

sudo pacman -S git

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

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

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

Alternatively for Arch based distribution, run the following instead.

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

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

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

With a Ryzen 5 3600 it took about 20mins.

Once completed, reboot and choose the TKG-kernel.

Done.

Performance.

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

How To Suspend Games and Applications in Linux With Nyrna

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

The video is below.

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

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

1. Installation

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

Simple, download and launch the AppImage.

2. Usage

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

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

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

A Guide for Getting Mods to Work on Linux

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

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

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

  2. mv content content.real

  3. mkdir content

  4. ciopfs content.real content

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The MCI shell

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

$ wine wintest.exe mcishell

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

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

Please help me, I'm kinda lost.

P.S. I am aware of the re-release of Quake on Steam, but I would prefer to use a source port.

Bio shock Remastered has terrible performance in proton and wine.

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

Linux + MSI GL65

Hello everyone!

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

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

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

Wallpaper engine

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

My elgato streamdeck driver for Linux has just released

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks!

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

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

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

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

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

Image Sharpening and other Shaders for AMD GPU's?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Unable to launch any Windows games from NTFS drive

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

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

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

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

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

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

Any way I can troubleshoot this?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

navigator.mediaDevices.chromiumGetDisplayMedia =

navigator.mediaDevices.getDisplayMedia;

async function getDisplayMedia(

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

) {

let captureSystemAudioStream = await navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({

audio: true,

});

let [track] = captureSystemAudioStream.getAudioTracks();

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

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

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

track.stop();

captureSystemAudioStream = await navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({

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

});

[track] = captureSystemAudioStream.getAudioTracks();

}

const gdm = await navigator.mediaDevices.chromiumGetDisplayMedia({

video: true,

audio: true,

});

gdm.addTrack(track);

return gdm;

}

navigator.mediaDevices.getDisplayMedia = getDisplayMedia;

var gdm = await navigator.mediaDevices.getDisplayMedia({

audio: true,

video: true,

});

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Using AMD GPU overheats the system and CPU

Hey Guys,

I have Lenovo 14 iml

having Intel i7

and AMD GPU as dedicated.

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

If anyone can help me out with this.

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

Upon running the exe file, I get this error that the game doesn't start. However, some people found a solution which involves the NVIDIA control panel here: https://www.reddit.com/r/yakuzagames/comments/kv1zye/application_failed_to_initialize_gs_settings/

But since I'm on a Mac, I'm unable to download or find one. Any solutions?

Can't find a fix for having two different refresh rates with a hardware accelerated browser

As the title says, I have a 144hz monitor and a secondary 75hz monitor. I like to have videos playing on the side when I'm playing games, but there's this really annoying issues that despite every search telling me that its allegedly no longer a problem still occurs. Whenever I play a video on the second monitor, it always makes my main monitor feels choppy, as if it also started running at 75hz. I'm on arch linux kernel 5.13.13-arch1-1, using a 6700xt gpu and 5600x cpu with chromium and mesa drivers. Here's my launch flags:

--ignore-gpu-blocklist
--enable-gpu-rasterization
--enable-zero-copy
--enable-features=VaapiVideoDecoder
--disable-features=UseOzonePlatform
--use-gl=egl

Mirror's Edge Catalyst how to disable shift + f1 tip popping up

Hi, is there anyway I can disable the shift + f1 tip popping up? I've tried launching just the origin launcher without launching the game but haven't found out a way to do this. The reason I need this is because I'm fairly sure that it's preventing mirror's edge from loading (game appears, new window pops up telling me to press shift + f1, game turns into a black screen.)

CPU and GPU running 100%

I have an app.i run, Scrivener, which is basically a word process, and when I run it it runs my cpu and GPU at Max causing them to hit 80+ in the matter of seconds and then kicks on my cooking fans. This is while the app is sitting idle. I run other apps, photo editing, and they don't come close to taxing my hardware unless I am doing some batch processing.

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

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

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

Using Big Picture Mode solves this issue.

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

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

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

How do I install files downloaded from gog.com?

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

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

Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

What is the deal with Metro Exodus

Hello everyone

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

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

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

"Cheating is allowed on PC platform"

This is quote from a post about Escape from Tarkov.

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

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

Can Fossilize work on non-steam games?

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

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

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

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

Dead Space Mouse-lag Fix for Linux?

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

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

Debian Gaming is not working properly

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

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

War Thunder performance issues on Linux Client

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

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

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

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

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

Nvidia proprietary drivers vs open source?

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

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

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

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

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

i'm running debian testing btw

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

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

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

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


I've recorded some gameplay video...

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

Steam flatpak on Linux Mint isn't working.

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

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

and

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

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

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

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

Lowest input lag "viewer" for VM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I've installed Steam, Gamehub, Lutris, Feral Gamemode, XanMod kernel and KDE Plasma (it runned equal in GNOME).

These are the specs of my system:

Operating System: Pop!_OS 21.04

KDE Plasma Version: 5.21.4

KDE Frameworks Version: 5.80.0

Qt Version: 5.15.2

Kernel Version: 5.13.15-xanmod1

OS Type: 64-bit

Graphics Platform: X11

Processors: 4 Intel Core i5-2435M CPU @ 2.40GHz

Memory: 15.5 GiB of RAM

Graphics Processor: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 3000

I can provide other data if needed

Thanks in advance for your help.

What's with all the Gundam merch?

I don't know if this has just started, or if it's been going on for a while and the ads have just finally got to me, but I have noticed a lot of Gundam related stuff on online retail stores. Is there a new Gundam TV series or video game? Is it available for Linux/Proton?

Any news about Bluetooth compatibility with the Xbox Series X Controller?

I've been searching for this for a while. Some sources say it can work with newer kernels plus xpadneo, while others mention that you need to either disable it's low energy Bluetooth feature or get a Bluetooth 5.0 dongle or update its firmware via Windows. Others say it only works with the official Xbox dongle.

So far I only tried using xpadneo on Ubuntu 20.04.3 with its default kernel, without success. Are there any news on this issue and a cheap/recommended approach?

Game on Proton suddenly stopped working, don't know why.

I tried opening Ghostbusters The Video Game: Remastered on my Manjaro linux laptop, and it wouldn't make it past the initial copyright screen. This game had this problem around 2 months ago, but it was fixed suddenly when I started my laptop the following day. Tried it again, and it doesn't work. I have tried the latest version of Proton, the experimental version, and both the latest version of GE, and the version before it that worked fine. Nothing. I've reinstalled the game as well, didn't fix it. I haven't changed anything in my laptop since then, so I know it wasn't anything I installed.

log from steam start to game crash: https://pastebin.com/Mpi74MYw

For reference my laptop uses an intel i5 (I forget which model, can't find it in Manjaro settings) CPU @ 2.5 Ghz and has a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti with Q-Base Design (whatever that means) with 8 GB of RAM.

How to apply CODEX crack when running .exe on wine on macOS Sierra 10.12.6?

I'm running Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition Dawn of the Dukes on a Codex .exe. I need to copy contents of codex directory to installdir, but when I tick the box "copy contents of CODEX directory to instaldir" and start the instalation, the box instantly unticks and the instalation proceeds. So the game can't be cracked while running it on wine. I am running the downloaded iso file on DiskMountImager btw.

pls help!

Team Fortress 2 flickering in game

Hello, I recently started playing more games on Linux and TF2 is one of the games that I am playing, I am using the native opengl version but encounter flickering while playing (both UI and particles).I have a couple of mods like Toonhud, first person animation overhauls, an alternative medic beam and mastercomfig with these launch options: gamemoderun %command% -novid -nojoy -nosteamcontroller -nohltv -particles 1 -precachefontchars -no_texture_stream.Both completely vanilla or with these mods I will have the same flickering issue example.

I am running Arch Linux (btw) with the linux-zen, nvidia-dkms, lib32-nvidia-utils installed.
Does anyone have suggestions on how I could fix this?

Need help with a game hogging up too much RAM on Proton

Just gonna drop the specs and other relevant details: OS: Archlinux CPU: Ryzen 5 1600x GPU: GTX 1060 6gb, using the proprietary drivers and running the game on a SSD, 8gb of RAM. I'm using i3wm, so the memory footprint of my system when its running idle is very minimal.

The game in question is A Hat in Time, and I am running it with feral gamemode. While the game runs flawlessly itself, it uses way too much RAM. If I don't have the game open, my system uses around 600mb-800mb RAM and that is with steam only, but when I turn the game on it shoots up to around 5 GB, increasing when loading levels and some levels don't even load because my system goes OOM and I need to restart it.

So, is there anything that I can do on my system or with proton to reduce that RAM usage when playing games even just a bit? Buying more memory is out of the question for now sadly.

Issues with Cyberpunk

So I'm using Proton 6.3. I had Cyberpunk launch once, I got into the game, noticed my frames were low, so I closed the game. Put the gamemode command in the launch options, tried to relaunch the game, and now it either won't load or crash.

I've removed gamemode, tried different proton versions, restarted my PC. Please help.

Why isnt there a proton 'app' like there is a Wine app? With Valves hypothetical progress with proton making it work with every game, will there be one in the future?

I am a linux newbie.

I understand that Proton is just Wine + dxvk, vkd3d and other libraries so you can achieve a similar end goal by just using these things within the application but why isnt there a proton application for simplicity sake?

The bigger point of this post is the development of Proton according to Valve. Lets say for example Valve somehow achieve their goal of getting 99.99% of Steam games working at platinum to gold level for the Steam Decks release. Lutris no longer supports proton because of some compatibility stuff and the Wine app in theory wouldn't be as robust as that proton build. I've read some comments from people theorizing that valve might use the kernal in some ways ppl dont like to achieve their compatibility goal (i dont understand enough about linux to comment on that). if this is the case then the only way to access the level of linux compatibility Valve is promising would be through Steam. Which brings me to the question of why there isnt a dedicated 'proton compatibility layer' app.

IF Valves promise holds true then I think an app like this could be big for trying to run 3rd party game clients (GoG Galaxy etc) on linux. Currently with lutris you use certain scripts to get the storefront working but anything installed through that storefront might needs their own seperate script which causes a lot of problems. If proton works with everything then this wouldnt be a problem.

(yes i am aware most likely proton will not be compatible with every steam game when the deck launches so please don't waste time commenting that)

GTA: SA crashes with Xbox (compat) controller attached

Like the title says: When I start the game with an USB dongle attached for my Xbox 360 compatible controller, which just works with ANYTHING else, GTA: SA crashes. I tried wine ( 5 and 6) , Lutris and Proton: all the same. I came to two missions, Lowrider and Dance Off at the beach to gain access to some van, where I simply do not understand which buttons to press to pass those mission, so I figured I would try with controller.... Has anyonw figured out how to get the game running with controller? I tried to detach the dongle, start the game, and re-attach the dongle in game, but then the controller is not detetced by the game...

Do you think valve will make a effort to support android games on the stream deck eventually?

Im a apple user but one game I play a lot of supports cloud saves between android and iOS.

That game is guardian tales, its one of my favorite games! Ive maybe put in about 75hrs into the story.

Well I bring this up because if valve made a modification to proton. I dont see why it couldnt be supported with android apps.

It would open the system up to so many more options! Personally I cant wait to see what happens.

I'm using an AMD RX 6700 XT, and I can run raytracing in Quake 2 RTX, with the AMD-PRO drivers.

But the option to enable raytracing is not displayed on some games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, or Zero Dawn Horizon.

Did any of you manage to have it working on linux? How?

Unable to download games on steam

Hey all. Im on Mojave, and using wine to play a windows game. Im able to install and open steam from wine, and can use Small Mode on steam to see my games library.

When I try to download the game I want, however, I never get past the Preparing the files for install screen. Seeing the game in my library also shows Downloaded 0 bytes / 0 bytes.

Ive noticed that steam consistently says No Connection on the bottom - which I suspect is the problem.

The only workaround I can think of is to download the game on my normal desktop, outside of Wine, and then use wine to open it. However, Steam wont let me do this - I get the message An error occurred while updating (invalid platform).

Is there any way to download the game outside of Wine, or a solution to the lack of connection?

Fortnite on Linux ALMOST working (Manjaro + Heroic Game Launcher + Proton Experimental)

I have fortnite on Linux on the VERGE of working but I have one last issue that's completely stumping me, at some point during the game, no less than 5 minutes after loading into a game, creative or multi player, the fortnite window suddenly disappears, when I alt+f4 it shows the window is clearly still there but it shows as transparent, in the lutris logs I could only find one error

Wine: RLIMIT_NICE is <= 20, unable to use setpriority safely

It seems like an issue I can circumvent seeing as how Fortnite doesn't actually crash and there are no bad error messages but I'm just stumped on this one issue because I'm far more experienced with Linux as a whole than I am with WINE debugging, Any ideas boys?

The broken state of... everything?

So I am about to rant a bit: I've been gaming on linux using a Windows KVM for about 7 years now. Yesterday I got my new 6900XT so I was like, how about switching every game to linux? Since I only play: Starcraft 2, Counter Strike 1.6, my computational needs are low for those games but I've a full fat workstation.

The issues I've ran into so far:

  1. Linux is not consistent on those games. I've been gaming on only those 2 tittles for about 8 years, it feels... broken, not up to the task for competitive play, maybe to burn a few hours, but not up to the task to be reliable.
  2. Wine + BattleNet don't get along, plus you have to run the permutation of scripts in a given order to have the correct battlenet and then install the tittles you want. This happens with every single game client, even steam feels buggy as hell.
  3. Resolution + Cursor restrain + Multiple Monitors: OH GOD... The nightmare, THE FREAKIN' Nightmare...
    1. First off: Resolution... it doesn't like my 165hz monitor like windows, so it keeps changing it, also the framebuffer or the compositor breaks constantly (never happens on workloads, it breaks only taking Screenshots I've to force an Xrandr Script because KDE display settings never works) OK.. so I ll just restrain the game to my primary monitor and force the settings.
    2. Cursor restrain: 2021 and every single game ignores cursor restrain. This is a feature of KDE yes.. but it can not be fixed unless using a crappy script or third party apps like gamescope (Which doesnt work since it takes for granted the display settings resolution and not my Xrandr script, so it creates a 1920x1080 "screen" in the middle of 2 monitors since the position is relative). Nothing works, and I am not even talking about working "out of the box"
    3. Multiple monitors: Every game starts on every Freaking monitor at random, I'have 7 monitors, 3 pluged into a 1070 (Windows KVM) 4 pluged into a RX6900, since restrain is not working and resolution is a mess, if it doesnt start on the right monitor I have to move it manually every time (It also ignores the KDE Windows Settings / Window management rules)

To sum up: This is why I will keep gaming on my kvm, and if this is not fixed by 2023 or so, then I'll slowly go back to Windows and ditch my arch linux box, unless this beautiful subreddit has a few tips to address these issues?

I might be at a stage of my life where I can not waste hours troubleshoting, yet I don't want to wipe my linux machine.

Does VKD3D work any better for the Nvidia 10 series cards and below nowadays?

I hope this question doesn't come across as rude or anything, it's not my intention.

I am on my way to switching to Linux full time but since I still have a Maxwell Nvidia GPU and a lot of the games I curently play support only DirectX 12 they ran very very slow on my poor old 980. From what I heard when I was testing this it was due to some missing vulkan thing in Nvidia's drivers for Pascal cards and older? Not 100% on the details but I think it was something along those lines.

Anyway I am on Windows for now until I get a new GPU but Windows is really getting on my nerves and I would like to switch asap. I'm just afraid I'd end up wasting hours upon hours setting up a full Linux-only system again only to run into the same problems.

So that brings me to the question, has VKD3D improved for Pascal and older Nvidia GPUs?

Thoughts on Zorin OS?

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I last used Linux but it's the first time I'm planning on playing games on it. I have some experience using Zorin and I like it due to it's appearance, but I don't know if anyone has some complaints about it. I know most people recommend using Ubuntu but I'm not a big fan of the distro, I'd rather use Mint if that's the case, but I'd like to hear some opinions from this sub in case anyone has encountered problems with Zorin. My main concerns is regarding GPU compatibility and software/drivers, I'll be using an Nvidia GPU, I read on Zorin's website that it has compatibility with Nvidia, but I'd like to hear some opinions.

(Endeavour/Arch) How to install and play games on Steam using an external disk as your main games installation.

This guide is made in order to set up steam games onto an external disk drive, either formatted onto ext4 or ntfs. I've written this steps in order to be the most simple to understand. Unfortunately, I'm not an expert and I can't answer any troubleshooting. Proceed to your own risk.

Supported OS in this guide

I'm currently using EndeavourOs Linux x86-64 With Kernel 5.13.13-arch1-1. You can use whatever linux distro, but this guide will cover this particular version.

list of applications used:

  • fdisk or gparted (gparted is easier)
  • nano
  • Steam
  • Any file manager (Optional)

I've formatted into ext4 format

Mounting your Disk

First you need to know where's your partition and disk you want to use.

fdisk -l

This will output all disks and partitions installed in your computer. Now you need to remember the disk you want to use. The fist column its the name of the device. For example, /dev/sdc3 is my device.

The device must have this structure: /dev/sdXY where X is the letter of the disk and Y is the partition number.

It's recommended to also search for the UUID of your partition. If you have gparted installed it's easy. Just right click your selected partition and then select "Information". It should pop up the UUID

If you want to use blkid, you can run this instead

sudo blkid | grep UUID=

Find your device and save your UUID somewhere.

Then you must create the mount destination folder. It's usually on /mnt/ but you can do it on /run/media/USERNAME/sdXY/ or elsewhere. In order to create folders, navigate to /mnt/ (for example) and then mkdir:

cd /mnt/
sudo mkdir sdXY/

You can check if it's the good UUID by running sudo mount -f ntfs-3g /dev/sdXY /mnt/sdXY . It should mount inside /mnt/. Don't forget to unmount the drive (sudo unmount /dev/sdXY).

Mount your disk at startup

To edit fstab:

sudo nano /etc/fstab

It should pop-up a window with something written inside. If it's blank you don't have fstab file for some reason.

Now, you're going to need your UUID, your uid and your gid.

Your fstab should look like this

#                      
UUID=1234567898745632       /mnt/sdXY      ext4 exec,nofail        0       0

Note: this must be in one line separated with TAB. Change your UUID to your desired one.

  • exec: execute permissions
  • nofail: Avoids getting stuck on emergency mode if the mount fails (Highly Recommendable)

Save with CTRL+O and then close with CTRL+X

You can test if it works without rebooting by mounting all the devices

sudo mount -a

This way you've mounted your ext4 device but with root permissions and read only to the rest of users. Below I'll explain how to give read-write-exec permissions

Before adding the folder to the steam library

If you've recently mounted your device and you try to add a folder inside your sdXY device into the steam library. Steam will pop-up a "read only" error. Also if your partition it's completely empty, you can't create a directory using thunar or dolphin.

If you want to create a folder. You must create it as root inside the device:

sudo mkdir Steam/

Then, in order to transfer the ownership from root. Run chown:

sudo chown USERNAME Steam/

Where USERNAME is your current username.

After this you must be able to create directories and files inside Steam/ without sudo or root perms.

"My Disk is in NTFS format!!" (not recommended)

I don't recommend mounting ntfs formats. I've never run a game inside the ntfs format.

Mounting your Disk using ntfs-3g

Exactly the same steps as "Mounting your Disk" in ext4.

Mount your disk at startup

Before editing /etc/fstab. You need your user id and your group id. You can check that by typing:

id

That should give your uid and your gid. Usually it's 1000 both.

To edit fstab:

sudo nano /etc/fstab

It should pop up a nano window with something written inside. If it's blank you don't have fstab file for some reason.

Now, you're going to need your UUID, your uid and your gid.

Your fstab should look like this

#                      

This part differs with the ext4 tutorial.

UUID=1234567898745632       /mnt/sdXY      ntfs-3g uid=1000,gid=1000,rw,user,exec,unmask=000,nofail        0       0

Note: this must be in one line separated with TAB. Change your UUID to your desired one, your destination point, your uid and your gid.

  • rw: Read/write permissions
  • user: Not mount as root
  • exec: execute permissions
  • unmask: Controls masking of filesystem nodes.
  • nofail: Avoids getting stuck on emergency mode if the mount fails (Highly Recomendable)

Save with CTRL+O and then close with CTRL+X You can test if it works without rebooting by mounting all the devices

sudo mount -a

Add the folder to Steam Library

  1. If Steam is completely black, go to Steam > Settings > Account and enter the steam beta and restart steam.
  2. Open Steam, go to Steam > settings > Downloads > Steam Library Folders
  3. Add your folder by pressing the plus sign. Don't forget to set as default.
  4. Close steam and install your games. Don't forget to enable Steam play if you need to.

Poly Bridge wrong scaling/resolution

I am trying to run Poly Bridge on my Linux Mint 20.2 but every it starts, the window is very small and the buttons are aligned i a way in which i can't really access anything. I somehow managed to set the right resolution (1440x2560) but it's still not as it's supposed to be. Any ideas on how to fix this?

This is how it looks right now, I can't even access the options anymore, because the actual button, that reacts to a click, is somewhere else then the icon, probably not even inside the window:
https://ibb.co/2ZfjCck

Alt+Enter does not do anything and I can't resize the window. To be honest, I don't even remember how I managed to change the resolution.

Bridging the gap for Linux newcomers - gamified experience

Hey Community!

Last week, World Wide Hack by Lotus Innovations has its Kickstarter launched. I had the opportunity to play the alpha versions and I find this game has a great potential, it is very stable and there is a lot more than just "another hacking MMO". I'm myself a propagator of learning cybersecurity on my blog and I have written the first impression here: https://blog.cyberethical.me/world-wide-hack-alpha-first-impression

Gamified experience can be sometimes enough to bridge the gap for people wanting to try Linux for the first time.

I'm not associated or sponsored by the developers of the WWH, just want to game to get as much exposure as it is possible, without force-advertising.

Proton new releases, news, or git?

Hi.

I am starting with Steam + Proton with the Disgaea games. I love the Disgaea 4, but on linux have some issues, also I already submitted a bug in protons page. Watching the protons page, where in the news section, there are only updates until nov 28 2020. In Feb 07- 2020 was releases proton 5.0-1, but now we are on 6. https://www.protondb.com/news

Xanmod good on lower spec machines?

I literally just heard about it recently, and before trying it for myself I wanted to see if it'd be good for a lower-mid tier laptop like mine. I've got a dualboot going with windows because it came with the laptop (keep your windows opinions aside).

I'm wondering if xanmod for example is worthwhile on a lower specced machine like mine or is it just cause more slowdown/harm than good?

Ps3 controller not connecting

I have a non-genuine ps3 controller (I couldn't find a genuine one) that I want to use on my linux system via bluetooth, the problem is it recognizes the controller and connects to it but never pairs and eventually it disconnects and I tried everything I could find on the internet, I don't know if this is because it's not genuine or something else. P.S: when I connect it via usb it works fine but all the LEDs stay lit up, it never changes to something like controller 1 or 2.

Proton support in new releases

Hi all hopefully this post is ok.

Hi Guys,

I am new to Linux and i was wondering if could i install Linux on USB stick and game on it. I got new PC in office (i3 9th gen with integrated graphics, 8GB ram) and want to play some low spec games on it but can't install anything and was asking myself could i just game straight off of USB. So my questions are: 1. Is it possible even though i don't have admin privileges on this PC? 2. Are there any tutorials how to do it? 3. What Linux OS should i use?

[Not Political] Tripwire Interactive CEO resigned; can we please retract negative reviews?

This post has no intention of involving politics of any sort. I suggest discussing the new law in question somewhere else.

Context:

Tripwire Interactive CEO John Gibson made an unpopular remark regarding Texas' new abortion law that causes massive uproar on Internet including social media and Steam. Many prominent industry veterans, executives, developers even partner studios distance themselves from Tripwire Interactive while players review bombed Tripwire Interactive titles.

News:

John Gibson stepped down shortly after his controversial tweet. Current Tripwire Vice President, Alan Wilson, will take over as interim CEO. Tripwire also released an official disapproval statement:

The comments given by John Gibson are of his own opinion, and do not reflect those of Tripwire Interactive as a company. His comments disregarded the values of our whole team, our partners and much of our broader community. Our leadership team at Tripwire are deeply sorry and are unified in our commitment to take swift action and to foster a more positive environment.

https://www.pcgamer.com/tripwire-ceo-steps-down-following-comments-on-texas-abortion-ban/

Question:

Can we please retract non-gaming negative reviews of Tripwire Interactive titles? Cause, I see plenty of Steam friends who put negative reviews to Tripwire Interactive titles as an act of protest. As of now the CEO in question is gone and the company distanced itself from him, wouldn't it fair to retract those reviews? I find it important, cause Tripwire Interactive brought some great titles to Linux such as Killing Floor, Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45, Road Redemption, and Dwarfs!?. Thank you!

FSR changes to Proton GE

Right now I am using Proton GE and am trying to lower the input resolution to the lowest I can. In the launch options for the game I put in WINE_FULLSCREEN_FSR=1 %command% in the launch options of my game and I got roughly a 10% performance increase in all games, how could I lower the input resolution so I can get higher frame rates? I dont know if WINE_FULLSCREEN_FSR_STRENGTH Is the key since that seems to only be the sharpening of the image.

PSA: Found out how to get current LOOT versions to work with mod organizer 1

This took me over an hour to find out, and I'm writing half so I can find it when I inevitably forget and google it up in the future.

Mod organizer 1, being old, doesn't like current loot a whole lot, at least not in linux; If you sort and apply the load order nothing changes, joy of joys.

So, for the TL;DR of how to make it work:

  • Launch LOOT thru Mod Organizer 1
  • Sort mods there, open the menu (The three dots) and select Copy Load Order
  • This load order has several columns we don't want with the load's hex values.

A good way to remove it is using sublime text and using shift+drag right click, which allows you to select squares. (This'd be easy to regex, but I can't be assed. Feel free to post said regex in the comments), to get only a list of ESP/Ms in the loot-sorted order that mod organizer will take.

  • Now we go to our modorganizer's profile folder and replace loadorder.txt's contents with LOOT's load order.
  • This is a sham, because gamebyro uses filedates for load order. MO's GUI is only being briefly tricked, and there's no direct way to tell it to write modified times.

Launching the game, drag and dropping files, and other such things that'll make mod organizer tell you it wrote the file dates won't actually do so. Don't believe its lies.

  • What you do instead is to backup the current load order, then restore it. This will cause it to write the file dates. And now you finally got loot's load order in place.

Control RTX Lutris not working

Hi.
I have installed Control from Epic Games Store in lutris but launching it from Epic doesn't enable the RTX options. Plus, it launches the Control_DX11.exe file by default. So, I added Control_DX12.exe separately in lutris and it launches perfectly. I came till this point after getting help from another subreddit r/wine_gaming which is this one.

Now the game is working and MangoHUD shows it is using VKD3D. I have added DLL overrides of VKD3D_CONFIG=dxr and added the flag -dx12 in the Runner option in Lutris. But still the RTX options in Control are not enabled. The video is attached with this post.

Team Fortress 2 doesn't use the GPU

I don't know what is going wrong. I switched back to linux after a few days of using windows, I installed plasma-meta, xorg, nvidia, everything as usual like I always do on a clean installation.

But when i run tf2 and join a match (or display 3d models like in the character screen) it goes from 60fps, to >1fps.

nvidia-smi throws information as normal:

Steam bad download speed, with a Twist!!!

I've been experiencing unstable download speeds on Steam, but there's a catch!

I've read a lot about previous people who experienced the same issue, but nothing of that worked.

Disable IPv6! I modified the grub file (etc/default/grub) and wrote this:

ipv6.disable=1

It didn't worked...

Install dnsmasq! dnsmasq is up and running in my machine. It didn't worked...

I'm not using Wi-Fi, I'm using a wired connection

I'm using the same download server on a Windows VM, and the Windows machine downloads at full speed.

I'm using the same hard drive for the Windows VM, so it's not a hardware issue.

Now, the problem in detail, checking the system monitor, my download rate goes full speed for around 1-3 seconds, and then drops to 0 for 1-2 seconds, and then again goes full speed, for a couple of seconds to drop to 0 again and again, so steam struggles to reach the full speed of my internet. In the end the average speed of download in steam is half my internet speed, if not less.

I'm using Arch btw!

please someone help me....

Doom Eternal - Bethesda Launcher - Does anyone have this working?

Just getting my feet wet with Lutris and I wanted to get Doom Eternal working, however it's not easy because my copy is using the Bethesda Launcher. So far, I can get Beth Launcher to run and work, even without using the "helper.sh" script; even Doom Eternal downloads and seems to install with no problem. However, depending on which Running/DLVK version you try, you either get an automatic crash or a warning about old GPU drivers.

Doesn't seem like anybody is properly running the Beth Launcher version of Doom Eternal so the Internet is scarce of information on this. I even tried to run this through Steam (non-Steam game added to library) but nothing happened.

Does anybody have this working or have some tips on how to get it to work? Logs don't tell me anything and I have literally nothing to go on. Help!

Nvidia drivers causes green dots all over the display + screen goes off and on

I'm new to Linux and especially new to gaming on it. I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 and the gpu is a GTX 1660 super and have been using the nouveau driver since I switched to Linux recently. I wanted to play some steam games and found out I need directx for steam play, so I switched to the proprietary drivers (tried 440 to 470) and they're all shitting up the screen (green pixels flickering on the screen + screen goes off and on a lot). I tried blacklisting nouveau, and tried some suggested setting changes in the Nvidia serverx settings. Anyone know the fix to this?

Any way to move steam games over to other Distributions?

Hello there,

I have a few games installed in steam. My internet is bad and I was wondering if I could avoid re downloading those games by moving files or something. I know how to move the local steam game files and later tell steam to look for the files but not fully sure if it will break stuff?

If it helps, I'm running PopOS on my laptop and want to install LinuxMint.

CS:GO problem

So i recently installed CS:GO after having it and playing on windows. now ubuntu 20.04, however i am unable to reach the "GO" button to start a match, as it is out of view (down the bottom of the monitor, and my cursor cannot reach it.) What can i do? I try changing the resolution and all that in hopes of something working, but the apply changes button is in the same place.

I know these buttons are there, i can see them when i super key out.

Ive tried using the tab key to cycle though but it does not work.

any help would be great, as i am very new to ubuntu and linux.

Cheers.

Edit: Fixed a typo

Content Manager for Assetto Corsa

So i'm having some trouble getting content manager running on linux which is a launcher/mod manager for Assetto Corsa. I am a beginner to linux (using Pop_OS for about 2 weeks now. Liking it so far) so I may be missing something fairly obvious.

So basically, whenever I launch content manager using wine I get 'It appears that .NET 4.5.2 is not installed.' so I just downloaded .net and installed it using the wine uninstaller tool but when I launched the application again it told me to same thing so I just skipped the prompt and then I got this massive string (https://imgur.com/a/RT8gw1p). I also tried to install .net by just running the installer but that didn't help. Any ideas?

Issues with KDE and Framerates

So for the last 8 years I have used a KDE based DE (I literally hate all the others, so switching is not an option). Since KDE 21 was deployed on Arch/Fedora/OpenSuse(the flavors I prefer) I have been having issues where X11 doesn't always recognize that my main monitor as being a 60hz display. I use a 43 inch TCL 4k TV for my primary, 50% of the time when I boot up my PC I get the 30hz or 24hz options but not the 60hz options.

The alternative is to use Wayland for the compisitor, which always sees the 60hz option for my monitor, but there are certain features I use daily such as Ksnip to capture regions and edit the screenshots, that are not useable in Wayland, even Spectacle only works 50% of the time.

So I am stuck between using Wayland just because I can get the full speed of my monitor, but missing the convenience of X11, or using X11 and crossing my fingers it decides to let me use 60hz.

I actually use my machine for gaming and using it at 30hz is painful, I didn't build this behemoth to play games at 30 fps. I know everything in Linux is a file, so I was wondering if there is simple config file, I can just manually set it to recognize the 60hz range of my monitor within X11, at least until Wayland gets more features.

I am not a Linux master, I know my way around it, but knowing all the ins and outs is not something I have had time to learn. So any assistance I appreciate in advance.

wine-stable: ""gdi32.dll" failed to initialize, aborting"

I am using Ubuntu MATE 20.04 with Wine 6.0.1 and had no problems using my old Windows programs. I am also using the nVIDIA 470.57.02 video drivers. I just reinstalled a fresh copy of the operating system and sometimes anything that relies on Wine fails to load, resulting in the following error:

02a8:err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "gdi32.dll" failed to initialize, aborting 02a8:err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Initializing dlls for L"C:\\windows\\system32\\conhost.exe" failed, status c0000005 02a0:err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "gdi32.dll" failed to initialize, aborting 02a0:err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Initializing dlls for L"C:\\SDL2VICE-3.5-win32-r40031\\x64sc.exe" failed, status c0000005

It happens with every Wine program I try (not just x64sc.exe) and there is no way I can fix this. I have tried logging myself back in and reinstalled Wine, but to no avail. Then I am forced to restart my machine if I want to run them again. Strange thing about it is that I was able to run one Wine program before the error occurs. Is someone familiar with this problem?

Need help deciding between the 6900 XT &amp; 3090

Hey everyone,

My 1080ti died (after 4 years service!) yesterday and I'm looking to replace it with either the 6900 XT or the 3090. I duel boot Windows 10 as I need Windows Mixed Reality to run my HP Reverb G2.

I want to get the AMD because of the whole open source drivers thing, it's also quite a bit cheaper than the 3090 but the issue I am facing is I have a 1440p 165hz G-sync monitor and I would miss the G-sync features using the AMD card.

I'm really just seeking advice, should I stick with Nvidia and get the 3090 due to my G-sync monitor or is the AMD the way to go if I am to continue using Linux into the future?

Playing Rocket League split screen with two monitors on Arch via Proton?

Hi, so I'm on Arch and I'm trying to play Rocket League with my partner on the same computer. I have two monitors. First, I tried to combine both monitors into a single screen using xrandr (I think it worked, even though my taskbar is still only one screen? I'm a little confused tbh) and then I followed a couple tutorials online that said to go to C:/users/(User)/Documents/Games/Rocket League/TAGame/Config and edit TASystemSettings.ini and set ResX=3840, Borderless=True and all instances of Fullscreen=False. However when I tried to launch Rocket League it would just overwrite the file and only show up on one screen. Setting the file to Read Only did nothing. I'm kind of at my wits' end. Any ideas how to fix this?

Generic DS4 Controller Questions

I got one of these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RLWTXKG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_7V8P4ARGX6GCV99B0KVE?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

It seems like a generic DS4 clone controller. I'm on Pop OS, and it connects with Bluetooth just fine and steam picks it up instantly. Connecting it with usb also causes steam to detect it. The controller works fine on the steam games that I tried (American truck simulator and Scrap Mechanic and a few others) but I'm having a weird issue with non steam games.

It seems like the input polling rate is low in non steam games, causing jerky movement in a racing game. I can see how jerky it is if I look at the input mapping menu. Looks to be polling at around 5fps or lower, so if I slam the stick to the left it just jumps to full left with no build up. Now I know that this controller is no where near the quality of a real DS4, but is this behavior the same on a real controller?

I also can't get ds4drv to detect the controller over usb, although it works with Bluetooth.

I'd like to be able to use this controller down the road when EAC support gets add so I can use it with a few FPS games. That's the other thing- dead zones. Is it normal to have a tiny dead zone in the center of the sticks? I'd imagine to aim precisely you'd need very slow movements along with very fast movements. I'm new to using a controller. Is there a way to calibrate the controller outside steam?

Newer Windows games will require TPM and Secure Boot. How does that affect us?

https://www.pcgamesn.com/valorant/windows-11

Apparently Valorant is one of the first games to require TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot to play on Windows 11 when its out on October 5th.

This is more of an anti cheat thing, but if more devs push this, it could could be an issue if developers want this for multiplayer and then eventually single player.

I dont play this game, but it does have me worried. This is why I try to do GOG when I can.

Real Dx12/Vulkan games and just Dx12 wrappers

Hello All!

I was thinking that I consider Horizon: Zero Dawn and Doom Eternal as real examples of DX12/Vulkan API usage. These games should have low CPU usage, good multi-core support with high GPU usage.

Do you think that games like Metro: Exodus, or Resident Evil: Village are just using DX12 as a wrapper for DX11 ?

RPCS3 - PS3 Emulator - Can not add game, but can install download games

Hello linux gaming community.

Installed and can run RPCS3. Downloadable backups (non-disc games) such as Tokyo Jungle (great game btw) can installed, and run well enough. (Extremely high bloom... but that's a different story).

However upon trying to add / open Red Dead Redemption GOTY edition, I get:

F sys_process: Failed to boot from exitspawn! (path="", error=Invalid file or folder)

Now, path = "" seems like a permission error, where RPCS3 can't access the file location, but after moving the backup files to the same SSD, and same folder even, it still doesn't boot.

Any ideas?

2080ti fans running at 100% when in any game!

Hey /r/linux_gaming

I am having an issue with my GPU, I have a Gigabyte 2080ti OC Gaming that is blasting my fans at 100% as soon as I open any game in proton. I checked NVIDIA X Server and under Thermal settings I watch the temperature go from 45 degrees idle to over 90 degrees as soon as a game is launched, this makes the fans take off and spin at max speed, as soon as I exit the game the temp goes back down to 45 degrees and the fans slow down again.

There's no way the GPU is doubling its temp in the 10 seconds it takes for a game to open so I am wondering where this bug is occuring and what I can do to fix it. I do not get this extremely drastic fan speeds under the same conditions in Windows.

I am running Linux Mint 20.2 and the Nvidia 470.63.01-0ubuntu0.20.04.1 driver

Hello people of the linux_gaming sub.

I'm here to ask a question about the odin handheld android device.

basically its going to have a snapdragon 845 inside and i was wondering, since the snapdragon 845 support linux on arm (and windows but lets not talk about that) maybe it will be able to run some light games (that work on arm) and because its linux, it might be able to run some android apps (if someone want to put some work into it) so do you think it will be able to compete with the switch at a price point of 165 to 250 bucks right now and 199 to 299 at a later stage.

Issues with Vulkan ICD loaders on AMD

Hello,

Relevant system details I can think of: Arch Linux, 5.13.13 zen kernel, 3700x CPU, 6900XT GPU. Mesa 21.2.1-1, Vukan-radeon 21.2.1-1, amdvlk 2021.Q3.5-1, Lutris 0.5.8.4-1,

I recently got my hands on a 6900XT, and I've noticed that I have to keep on switching between ICD loaders in order for my games to work. Just now I tried to launch Overwatch using radeon_icd.x86_64.json but it errored out, saying it couldn't detect a gpu. Here's the log for that particular event. I switched to amd_icd64.json and it worked perfectly (also relevant log here). I've noticed this trend with FF14 too, wherein one of them would work just fine then the next day I'd have to switch to the other just to get the game to boot. I've had to go into the launch options in various games in Steam to switch to the other ICD loader as well in order to troubleshoot.

I was under the impression that, if all those comparative benchmarks online are anything to go by, they both work at getting the game booted, but as an AMD user I can choose which one runs that particular game the best. Am I mistaken here? If not, that's not the experience I've been getting.

I'm out of my element when it comes to ICD stuff, the Nvidia one I used previous just worked. The only steps I've taken thus far is to make extra sure I have no leftover Nvidia stuff on my system.

As an aside, Hades on Steam doesn't work with either ICD loader when running the Vulkan version through proton. It worked a week or so ago. They both come up with the same "No GPU found" error, sort of the same ballpark.

TL;DR Is it normal to have to keep switching ICD loaders on AMD to get games to even work? Or is something messed up with my system? If the latter, what're some steps I can take?

I have browsed on Google for solutions but majority of them are either for Nvidia or are massively outdated.

Any help would be appreciated

Forgot to add steam was installed through the application manager so Flatpak

Help needed

Hey there so, I need some advice for a Monsters expedition.
The texting pigeon island that you used to be able to access the island off to the side which I think has my last snowman on it can no longer be accessed the way most people have done in walkthroughs in the past with the new update. Please can someone explain to me how to do it. Its my last island

The Steam handheld is pushing linux gaming forward, but we also need something for desktop/laptop

We need something like razer but not razer. Good hardware, clean lines, decent quality that is built from the ground up for linux gaming. Amd gpu (or intel when the new good stuff is supported) and running a derivative of what the handheld is running. Am I crazy or is this a small but unserviced market niche?

Proton seemingly randomly stopped working.

Hey,

Yesterday I tried installing a game through proton (Lego Indiana Jones, platinum on protonDB) and it won't open, Steam just says "playing" for a second. I tried using PROTON_LOG=1 %command% and PROTON_LOG_DIR %command%, but I couldn't find a log file anywhere.

I then went to try a different game, Spelunky, which I had played through proton the day prior, and it had the same issue, immediately closed on startup. Since I'm unable to get a log, I'm really not sure what the issue is here, hopefully you guys can help me out. Here's a pastebin with my system info from steam, and I should also mention that I've tried launching games from 3 different drives: my boot drive that's ext4, a games drive formatted NTFS, and a game drive formatted NTFS, mounted with LDMtool. Let me know if there's any other info I can provide, thanks.

[FIX] Oblivion launcher has all options disabled/greyed out on Steam (Proton)

I wanted to play my Steam copy of Oblivion via Proton, but all i got was this launcher screen, and there was barely any information on how to fix it, so i wanted to make an easy guide here so someone like me would easily get Oblivion up and running.

Step 1:

Open Terminal and run this

WINEPREFIX=/home/$USER/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/22330/pfx/ wine regedit

This will open a regedit for your Oblivion Wine instance

Step 2:

  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Wow64Node
  • Create a new key (folder) by right-clicking on Wow64Node, name it Bethesda Softworks
  • In Bethesda Softworks key, create another key and name it Oblivion
  • Then, create a String value in your Oblivion key, name it Installed Path
  • Finally, double-click on the Installed Path entry, and put Z:\home\\.steam\steam\steamapps\common\Oblivion as a Value data (if it won't work in step 3, try navigating to your installation path through Steam (right-click on the game -> Manage -> Browse local files), copying the path and putting it there instead, don't forget to flip the slashes though :D)
  • Close regedit

Step 3:

Launch the game! If you did everything correctly, Oblivion will launch as normal, with all of the options available

I know that 99% of people probably won't need this, but i've seen some people complaining about this on ProtonDB, so i hope this guide will help at least a few linux gamers out there :)

Can't control NVIDIA GPU Fan Speed on driver 470.57.02

Earlier this morning I've decided to update my NVIDIA drivers from 460 to 470 in my Ubuntu machine.

After the update, I noticed the fan control stopped working. I normally use GWE (Green With Envy) to set the fan speed, and now the fan curve that I've configured doesn't work, the fan keeps at 0%. Even on the X Server GUI it doesn't let me set the fan speed.

I've already tried setting the cool-bits=4 with the terminal, execute the [gpu:0]/GPUFanControlState=1 command, etc. I've even tried to downgrade back to the 460 version, but even so the fan control isn't working.

Does someone know how to fix this? :(

I don't know if it's relevant, but I have a GTX 1070ti on my machine.

EDIT: I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 with kernel 5.11.0-27-generic x86_64

People with RDNA1/2 cards, do you also experience GPU crashes?

Any of you who have 5000 and 6000 series cards, do you experience any hard crashes that require reboot when playing games (mostly demanding ones)? I have been playing GTAV and Death Stranding, but also previously Diablo 3, and with all of those so far, I have experienced crashes that result in a sudden freeze that is followed by black screen and/or frozen frame with some red/black/green corruption over the frame (in a checkerboard pattern). It happens infrequently, sometimes not once in one session, sometimes many times.

The closest bug report I could find was https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/amd/-/issues/892 and even though there is A LOT of people reporting, there doesn't seem to be any progress on it whatsoever.

I'll have to add that I have been playing the same games on Windows, just to see if it happens as well and it DOES NOT. So there is prolly an issue with the linux driver.

Discord Tray Icon on Linux not displaying voice status

I've searched for this everywhere but nobody seems to have made this question. Is there a way to show the "round green led" that lights up every time I talk? On gnome and kde it only shows the default icon logo without changes. So there is no way for me to know if my mic is picking up noises while the main discord window is minimized. Is it possible to do this on linux?

The discord folder in .config has the icons for it but they don't seem to work. Here is the screenshot below.

Install Proton-GE with two clicks - ProtonUp-Qt: GUI for ProtonUp

I've created a GUI for AUNaseef's ProtonUp to simplify the installation of Proton-GE.

It's available as an AppImage from here: https://github.com/DavidoTek/ProtonUp-Qt/releases

It supports the normal Steam version as well as the Flatpak version. Tested on Ubuntu 18.04+ and Manjaro.

I would appreciate your feedback!

Steam app is blank, instructed to use 'Big Picture'

I'm curious if anyone else has noticed this.

The classic steam interface doesn't work anymore, and you are instructed to go to 'Big Picture'. The shell of Steam exists, but everything inside is blank, unless you go 'Big Picture'.

Moving to kernel 5.14 breaks the steam browser?

So I use manjaro and everything was smooth as butter until I moved to kernel 5.14.

Now steam won't work in it's normal browser mode.

Looking online, the only solution I found was here, that is to run in small mode.

I was wondering is this happening to anyone else? Or has anyone has a solution for it besides going to small mode?

Thanks

Worms Armageddon crashing on kernels 5.13.13-0 and 5.14.0-0

Hey, I know that there are very few people who still play this game, but I was surprised to see it not working on my Manjaro machine. I knew it worked flawlessly before, even just with Wine.

So after trying to change the display backend to everything (Dx7, Dx9, OpenGL, all software and hardware), I gave up. The only thing that worked was the single player match against the computer and the menus looked shoddy (LAN and Single Player). Everything else crashed it to the desktop, like in these images: https://imgur.com/a/81jvmrZ.

After this, I remembered I had another Manjaro installation on a separate drive, fired it up, installed Worms, and it worked. The difference was the kernel. It had 5.10.61-1, the one which it installs by default. I changed that to 5.14.0-0 and it exhibited the same odd behaviour. I installed 5.13.13-0 and that also didn't work, but it did with 5.12.19-1, so I'll stick with this for the moment.

I'm not sure if this information helps anyone or what to do with it from here, but wanted to give some heads-up. Maybe I'll write a report on ProtonDB.

Can someone figure out why Proton refuses to launch Tales of Symphonia?

The game is Tales of Symphonia. The game ID is "372360".

I'm running Manjaro. It's an old system that does not support Vulkan. As a result, I enabled "PROTON_USE_WINED3D". The game does not start. I do not get an error message, the play just turns blue then green again. Here is log:

How to update xonotic?

It's on the pop store, and I downloaded it and played (it's really fun). But on the server I was on said it's on version 1. something, I don't remember, and I'm useing version 0.8.2, and on the pop store it said it hasn't been updated since 2017. So how do I update? I tried sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade, but it didn't update.

I tried looking this up, but most of the content I could fine was about downloading the game, not updating it.

Getting a few pieces of hardware to work

So I got everything working, games run pretty much as they do on linux minus a few hiccups.

I need to get my elgato hd60s working as this is what I use to capture my sony a6400, without it it's kinda useless outside of being a camera.

Also I need to get my Elgato 4k60 pro working as well for console streaming.

Everything else just.. works, any help is appreciated!

Psychonauts 2 asking to install Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime

openSUSE. GOG version. This is an issue that only happened with this game so far. What should I do? C++ is well, Windows exclusive software, what should I do to play this game?

I don't think installing it will work: I think I did something wrong. Just like DirectX12 is solvable with VKD3D, this very likely has something similar that needs installation, but I don't know what. mf-install is needed for this game, but not for this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Fallout: New Vegas Modded Experience?

Hello guys, I am really into FNV and I am well aware that the Linux vanilla version runs like a charm. Problem is, I really do not want to play FNV vanilla ever again, so I was wondering what modding the game has been like in Linux for people. Is there any mods that specifically have issues, or is it generally a similar experience if I use Mod Organizer or some other mod manager? Any help and advice would be appreciated!

GTA 5 running like crap.

I have a ryzen 7 3700 X and A RTX 3070. I'm trying to play GTA V on pop OS and the game does not run well at all. Every time I try to apply settings the game doesn't look any better and I'm pretty sure the settings don't apply I also get so many micro starters and FPS drops down into the 20s. I tried the current version of proton and glorious egg roll proton to no avail. I tried DirectX 10 and DirectX 11. What can I do about this?

WineBottler keeps saying I have"No connection to the internet" even though I do.

Every time I open winebottler it tells me I have no connection to the internet even though I do. When the app opens I don't have access to any of the downloads. I've restarted my mac and router a few times but it didn't do anything. I'm just trying to play Fallout 1 so I would appreciate some help.

My mouse gets locked in the center when I play games in grapejuice (roblox)

When ever I play a fps game my mouse locks to the center of the screen. Alt tab helps but can get repetitive real fast. Is there any solution or remedy to this?

Edit: I know there a solution for normal roblox games but the majority of the games I play are fps games.

How can I run a program in a games proton prefix?

I am having lots of trouble with this, i'm experimenting with some modding (which requires a program, and that program seems to be hardcoded to find the game in C:\Program File\Steam\blah\blah so I need to run the program in the prefix) and so far this is what I have:

STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH=/home/sol33t303/.steam/root/steamapps/compatdata/489830/ WINEPREFIX=/home/sol33t303/.steam/root/steamapps/compatdata/489830/pfx WINEDLLPATH="/home/sol33t303/.steam/root/compatabilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/files/lib64/wine:/home/sol33t303/.steam/root/compatabilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/files/lib/wine" ~/.local/share/Steam/compatibilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/proton run ~/Downloads/Wabbajack/Wabbajack.exe

Which does not work with the following output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/sol33t303/.local/share/Steam/compatibilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/proton", line 1472, in 
    g_session.init_session(sys.argv[1] != "runinprefix")
  File "/home/sol33t303/.local/share/Steam/compatibilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/proton", line 1255, in init_session
    g_compatdata.setup_prefix()
  File "/home/sol33t303/.local/share/Steam/compatibilitytools.d/Proton-6.16-GE-1/proton", line 660, in setup_prefix
    steamdir = os.environ["STEAM_COMPAT_CLIENT_INSTALL_PATH"]

    raise KeyError(key) from None
KeyError: 'STEAM_COMPAT_CLIENT_INSTALL_PATH'

FYI this program works fine in my system wine, so it's proton it's self not wanting to run and not an issue with the program.

Grim Dawn black screen no sound

OpenSuse Tumbleweed

Grim Dawn was working fine but something in a recent update has broken it.

Black screen with no sound.

Happens with both GOG version locally with Wine and Steam version with Proton.

Screen tearing in Empyrion (no build in Vsync)

I play Empyrion (v. 3.4) through wine (6.13) on my Ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit, Desktop).

The game has no build-in Vsync, so I get alot of Screen Tearing.

Is there something I can do ?

My System:
Intel I3-10100
AMD RX 550 (2 GB)
8 GB RAM

What I also tried yet:
Launch Empyrion through Lutris using GE 6.14

Steam Arch problem

OK, right after the Freetype update I had problems with Steam--updated the Steam Beta Client & everything "seemed" to work normally...... I play Serious Sam ( all of them) & SS4 was working before the update. I reinstalled the game & applied the changes to make it run with Proton (I'll detail the 2 mods if anyone wants)--long story short, the game "starts" with Vulcan--but audio-only. I'm thinking this is still the FreeType problem---thoughts anyone?

Certain games crash with FSR

Using GE 6.14 both DOOM Eternal, Subnautica, and Batman Arkham knight crash when using WINE_FULLSCREEN_FSR=1 %command%, I can't find anyone else having crashes when running these games with FSR, so I don't know what to do to fix this. I'm on Arch Linux using the 5.13.12 zen kernel with a GTX 1650.

State of Decay 2

I've really been enjoying my decision to abandon Windows entirely; it's truly been an awesome experience. The vast majority of my games play out the box and I think that's pretty freaking awesome.

But.

State of Decay 2, bruh, ya killin me. You're like the black sheep of my games list now because I you crash as soon as the tutorial's completed. You went from being one of my long time favorites to being that ugly 2nd cousin thrice removed that just sits shamefully in the back corner.

"C'mon man", getcha chit together.

Privacy friendly multiplayer games.

This isn't really a linux question (I don't really care if the games work on linux, I imagine a lot of games are going to work on linux at one point, so i just want to know these games exist) I just want multiplayer games that are privacy friendly.

I understand they need your ip address, but when I read the eula, it's usually more then just your ip address, some of them are explicit about selling your data, but some are VERY long and try to dance around it.

They can be free or not, they can be whatever genre, I just want safe multiplayer games that respect you.

Good game to benchmark hardware-accelerated 3D performance on old GPU?

I have an old Pentium 4 desktop with an NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT video card. It functions okay (if a little slugglish) as an office desktop with a 32-bit Ubuntu derivative installed, but I am interested in testing the 3D performance of the video card using the Nouveau driver. Is there an application / game, which would actually run on this hardware, and which would make use of the video card to render 3D graphics?

TailQuest - game made on linux for linux

Hi! My name is Izabela and together with my husband we have been creating TailQuest for several years (yes, only the two of us :) ) (only music is made by Wojciech Usarzewicz).
We've been using Linux and open source since 2007, and we've made several games since then. Except for TailQuest - every previous one was created 100% using open source software like LibGdx, blender, Inkscape etc.

In TailQuest, this statistic is disturbed by Substance Painter :P (waiting for an alternative!).

My husband is a contributor and experienced user of Godot Engine - this is the engine we use to create TailQuest.

TailQuest is a game for everyone. It's mostly tower defense, but it's also an adventure and puzzle 3d platformer genre. And of course there is a local coop so you can play with a friend! :)
If you have any questions - I will be happy to answer them!

I will be very pleased if you add our game to the steam wishlist <3

Would you be able to run mobile games on Linux?

So I've seen that on some chinese linux-based operating system you can install mobile apps, i tried looking into this a bit more to see that there are some apps (like Anbox for example) that let you install android apps, so is there any way you can use this to install and run games that don't really need your keyboard? (games like Arknights, or Azur Lane, etc.)

[Help Request] dx12 GPU not detected as dx12 capable

Hi!

I've been using Wine 6.0a for a pretty long time and things are working great, dx12 is working, performance is OK, no weird stutters or freezes in Electron-based software.

Recently I decided I wanted to upgrade to Wine 6.16, so I did, but suddenly games that were formerly working great with dx12 suddenly report that no dx12 capable device was found.

It seems to work fine for other people, but I can't tell why it's going wrong for me.

The game where this is most easily noticeable is WoW Classic TBC, which has the following in its startup gfx log:

Could they make wine/proton somehow illegal by the law in the future?

You might have seen gta 3 and wine developers case. Similiarly, if the steam deck and linux gets really popular, could they somehow maybe bribe the law makers and judges, to somehow prove that wine is illegal? Since they got a lot of money. Microsoft that is.

Filesystem for gaming on an SSD?

I have two gaming rigs that I also do a lot of programming and tinkering on. I've been running Manjaro for about a month now and am absolutely loving it. When I installed Manjaro on them I just selected ext4, since I know it is a very good choice all around, however, I installed EndeavourOS on a low-spec laptop that I have and discovered BTRFS, and specifically the amazing BTRFS CoW backup.

I am thinking about reinstalling Manjaro on the lower-spec gaming rig that I tend to do most of my tinkering on (I test on it and make changes to the more powerful rig if they work out well) so I can try out a different filesystem. This computer is running a SATA SSD, RX590, and intel i7-4790K (the processor is a major bottleneck at this point, but it works well enough still).

Anyway, I was set to re-install with BTRFS, but noticed there are other options I should potentially consider. XFS and F2FS offer better speed in some benchmarks, but I'm not sure how relevant that is to my situation. They also don't have BTRFS' CoW backup. That said, would I get noticeably better performance out of an SSD formatted with XFS than I would with BTRFS on this computer? I am still leaning towards BTRFS, but I wanted to get some more input. Should I just stick with ext4?

I know there are other comparisons out there, but I couldn't really find anything that related to gaming that was written in the last year or so. I apologize if this is duplicate.

Is it normal to experience lower performance in Linux compared to windows?

I switched to Linux a few days ago mainly to get away from windows but also to use a more polished and optimized OS, and for the most part I really like it. The issue I have with it tho is performance in games.

Most games and emulators I've used have generally performed worse. On windows, Battlefield 1 ran from 50 - 70 fps on High/Ultra settings but with Linux the game performs from 40 - 55 fps. Emulators like Cemu and Ryujinx give good but VERY inconsistent frame rates. Is this a problem with Wine/Lutris? Is it a problem with Nvidia's prosperity drivers? Or is it that Linux generally performs worse with laptops?

My specs are:

GTX 1650, Ryzen 4600H, 16GB RAM

All of the Games that I've ran have been through Lutris and Steam and the emulators (except Cemu) have been native to Linux.

DLSS + Ray Tracing in Doom Eternal is Unreal

So I figured I'd test out the new Doom Eternal update with Ray Tracing and DLSS finally enabled, since DLSS is now enabled in Proton for Vulkan titles.

And my god, is it incredible. I've never tried out DLSS before, but I've tried Ray Tracing, and I swear I've never been able to tell the difference, I've never thought RT looked much better (or better at all) than rasterization. But the second I turned RT and DLSS on, it was like a whole new game. It looks incredible.

Also it's just mind-blowing how fast things are starting to come along, as far as getting Linux gaming closer and closer to parity with Windows.

Anyone with an RTX GPU needs to try Doom Eternal out with DLSS and RT asap.

Anyone still playing Final Fantasy XV on Linux?

I have ~120 hours in the game and thought it would be cool to revisit with FSR/DLSS as it seems to be implemented in the latest Proton versions. However, the game crashes on start for all Proton versions > 5.13-6. The game loads and plays great on Proton 5.13-6, haven't tried all the earlier ones but the only issue with 5.13-6 is it doesn't support FSR/DLSS as far as I'm tracking. I've tried on both of my machines, one being a desktop with a Ryzen 3900x/6900xt GPU and a laptop with a 6c/12t intel cpu + rtx 2080 max q gpu. Anyone else here experience this issue and know how to troubleshoot it?

GTA V, Lutris, WINE, and Winetricks Errors (vcrun2017, dotnet472, and others)

So my two week old Manjaro install got messed up the other day. Totally my fault, big newbie error, and I hadn't yet done a proper backup for it, so I had to do a fresh install.

I installed everything, got it back up to speed, and went about installing Lutris, and then GTA V.
Now, when I had first installed it a few weeks ago, I installed Lutris, GTA V, Winetricks, and then copy pasted my GTA V folder into the Games folder for Lutris. No problem, the launcher picked it right up and added it. Then I fired up Winetricks, installed dinput8, dotnet472, and vcrun2017, which make it possible for me to run the few mods I have for my singleplayer game (I have the yacht and Cayo Perico).

Everything worked so well in that first install. Then the crash happened, I wiped everything, and reinstalled Manjaro.

Got everything back up to speed, installed Lutris, installed GTA V, installed Winetricks, and did everything like I did two weeks ago. Then the problem happened. I clicked the options to install Dinput8, dotnet472, and vcrun2017. Winetricks installed dinput8, no problem. Then it downloaded dotnet472, and disappeared. I mean, the dialog box just went away, it didn't follow up. I waited half an hour for it to pop up with anything and it never did, so I closed everything, went back and clicked the install DLL for vcrun2017. I get the error "SHA-256 mismatch," and that I should rename the file and try the download again.

So I did, and of course it did nothing.

Then I downloaded the files manually, put them in the folder, and chose "install exe inside of Wine prefix." The dialogue box told me both dot net 4.7.2 and Visual Studio 2017 are already installed. They are not because I could go to the DLL dialogue box and it showed none of them installed, and of course GTA V would crash upon trying to load the game because the mods didn't have the files they needed to run properly.

I have never had this issue before. Last time I installed GTA V, I just checked the boxes for vcrun2017, dotnet472, and dinput8, and they installed. This time around they absolutely will not install for anything. I tried to force the install of dot net 472, and the terminal said that the operation was aborted having errored out with status 1.

I try to force update WINE, Lutris, and Winetricks, and they always come back that nothing needs updated.

I don't know what to do. All of this is in an effort to get myself off of Windows 10 permanently, and so I'm curious if maybe the libraries are corrupt, or something has been broken somewhere. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Lutris, Winetricks, and WINE several times, cleared out the caches, and I don't know what else to do. I'm hoping someone who has faced this similar issue can help.

OS: Manjaro Linux 21.1.1 Pahvo
Lutris is the latest version from the repository
Winetricks is the latest version from the repository

Red Dead Redemption 2 Lutris setup.

Hi guys, I've been trying to gather RDR2 set up on pop_os but I'm running into a problem. Ive done what most people say and I've downloaded the custom proton runner. Before I installed the custom runner It allowed me to open rockstar launcher and install the game but when I would click play the play button would turn from play to loading to quitting and wouldn't even do anything. After I installed the proton, I hit play and the launcher acts as if the game is working the button turns to exit game but the game still has not opened for me. I went to system monitor to see if there is a process open and I found rdr2.exe but it's status was sleeping. How do I "wake" it up? Sorry if this is confusing but I am just as confused.

PRIME GPU offloading with all-AMD hardware?

Okay, so I'm building a PC around a Ryzen 5 2400G I have and my RX 550 4GB. The thing about the Ryzen 5 2400G is that, when combined with high speed RAM, the integrated graphics can actually SURPASS the performance of the RX 550. Stupid me thinking I could save 40$ by buying an RX 550 instead of an RX 580...

Anyway, I'm thinking about setting up PRIME GPU offloading with this so I can let games have the eGPU all to itself and let the iGPU do regular desktop stuff (Chromium, KDE Plasma). Would this degrade performance? Would it work with multiple monitors without issues (if the monitors are connected to the motherboard and not the eGPU)?

Grim Dawn black screen - was recently working

OpenSuse Tumbleweed

This might be more Wine than r/linux_gaming but I'll start here in case anyone else is seeing it.

Grim Dawn had been working fine for me, both the GOG version run locally and the Steam version run through Proton. I've tried two older Proton versions but with no improvement.

After some recent OpenSuse Tumbleweed updates (I think) it no longer works and only gives a black screen with no game music or other sounds heard.

Other games I play through Wine / Proton still work.

The only errors I am able to find so far are just "fixme" stuff which I don't think are critical.

Any other Linux Grim Dawn gamers also seeing this? I'm trying to at least determine if the trouble is in Linux or in Wine.

We just released our vehicle building game Making it Home (and it's 20% off!)

Hi everyone,

We just launched the version 1.0 patch for our vehicle building game Making it Home on Steam. Making it Home is a vehicle building game where you combine simple elements into complex contraptions. Youll need to use your engineering and creativity skills to design vehicles to overcome challenges, or just go really really fast.

We have been working on the game for three years, lots of you hear helped with the closed beta (which we really appreciated), and we are super excited to launch the version 1.0 patch today!

If it sounds like the sort of thing you might be into pick up a copy!

Any questions just ask :D

New to Linux

Hello. I'm completely new to the Linux community. I want to experiment Linux in my Laptop, it's an Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G, with i7 Intel and Nvidea MX 940 graphics card.

I did some research and I am divided between two distros: Elementary OS and Pop! OS. Both of them seem very easy to begginers. I liked Elementary OS by it's interface and because it seems easy to use, but Pop! OS seems to have better support for the Nvidea MX card. Am I right about that?

I want some advice on what should I choose for my laptop, considering I am a begginer to Linux.

Also, I'm not a native english speaker, so please pardon any mistakes.

Question about optimal scripting language for larger games on Linux

im a beginner programmer, like turbo beginner, but I ma quick learner and love to go down rabbit holes.
im in one which is causing me to question where I want to place my focus in game development.

as it sits, the language and engine I choose mean nothing because im a beginner and whatever I make wont have enough of an impact for performance to be a considerable issue (outside of memory leaks because bad at coding). think basic platformers and classic Doom style FPS stuff.

but im the kind of person to constantly worry about what's most efficient. I've already convinced myself not to go hard in the paint and learn C++ even if its 2x as fast as C# (at calculating algorithms. it was the only baseline test I could find on raw performance).

on to the actual question. on windows the big guys are obviously C++ and C# because of AAA studios and Unity, plus the fact that C is a Microsoft product native to Windows. on Linux, from what I can find, Lua, Python, and Java are the main languages.
if my future goal is a larger game on Linux, like AA or AAA for arguments sake, is my best bet still C# as opposed to Lua on something like Godot or O3DE? is there a C++/C# equivalent on Linux?

from what I gather in my research, Lua and Python have inherent overhead being interpreted languages and Java is just poop at games, thus lower performance if compared 1:1. I see plenty of games written in C++/C# that run well on Linux through compatibility layers but I would rather develop natively with the advent of the Linux gaming golden age and just avoid Microsoft (for arguments sake, lets ignore possible profit loss due to userbase size).

VKD3D installation walkthrough help needed

Hi,

I am fairly new to the linux gaming landscape. I am using an Ubuntu 20.04.3 distribution and have an RTX 2080 card. I managed to set up Steam and enable RTX for Shadow of the Tomb Raider fairly easily (no complexity in that whatsoever), but now I have to set up Control for RTX. I have Control in my Epic Games Launcher and I use Lutris for that. Here's where things got complicated in my research.

As I understand, VKD3D-proton from the official repo was stopped being supported by lutris. So, we have to manually install it ourselves. But anything proton related doesn't work well with lutris now. I have to use other forked distributions and manually add it to lutris. This is getting confusing for me now. I cloned https://github.com/Frogging-Family/vkd3d-git.git but the installation required makepkg binary, which I cannot install using sudo apt install pacman.

Maybe someone can give me a walkthrough, or refer me to some source with the complete setup guide.

So the new Steam Cookie Clicker just came out and I wanna play it on Linux but no native and Proton wont run it.

How do I make Steam launch "Cookie Clicker" natively when I hit the play button for the game because theoretically that should make the Steam Integration work. If I can do this, I've made a finished port and proof at how easy the port was, then I send it to the original dev. :)

This is a little game I made while our GFX-Artist is busy with our current Mainproject. It is developed using SDL2 under OpenSuse. Most of our testers use Windows, so tell me if you encounter problems.

You'll need SDL2, SDL2-gfx, SDL2-mixer, and SDL2-image installed. 64 bit only.

Gameplay is heavily inspired by Icy-Towers, but much faster. Custom Soundtrack made with LMMS.

Have fun, glad if you check it out!

this one bug that prevent me from using my gaming monitor with linux

A year or two ago NVIDIA introduced the xorg bypass for laptops with integrated NVIDIA graphics. This technology allowed the NVIDIA driver to send the frames of a game directly to the monitor (if wired to the NVIDIA gpu) instead of going through the integrated gpu, resulting in lower latency and a massive performance increase (csgo 300fps -> 500fps (main menu)).

But here is the catch since all this time NVIDIA hasn't fixed the fact that some games give a black screen (most are dxvk using games).

I created an issue on the developer forum https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/t/blackscreen-with-the-xorg-bypass/182215

all i want is that some of you takes the time to test the issue with their hardware and send a bug report to on the dev forum.

here are the games i tested witch are broken : Among us, 10 miles to safety, Going medieval, Stick fight the game, Space engineers, mass effect legendary (launcher & mf2 but not mf1 & mf3), breathedge, Starcitizen, Portal 2(native - vulkan)

Winebrowser

Hi, i've got a problem with something called "winebrowser". I don't know what it is, but it appeared when I installed wine.

The problem is that when i open a link, in place of opening it with my predeterminated browser, it opens it with winebrowser. and it doesn't seems to do nothing.

The last time it happened was with discord, but it happened with libreoffice too, and when i try to do something in the console it happens too!, What do I do, plz help me.

Guilty Gear Strive slowly gets laggier as it stays launched

When I launch Guilty Gear Strive from Steam with Proton 6.3 and enter training mode, my GPU usage goes up to 100% and my CPU to about 40%, but as time passes, the GPU usage decreases and the CPU usage increases while the FPS drops. The framerate ends up being < 10FPS after about 2 minutes. Any idea what might be causing this? For the record, my hardware is good enough to run the game at 60fps consistently when I was on Windows.

I have some problems running a game in wine do you guys mind giving a hand ?

The game i'm trying to run is called Alicia Online, it's a horse racing game, not too conplicated, the game has two installers ( one for the game files, and one for the launcher ) and a locale dependency, the problem is, even if i fix the locale dependency through a LANG environment variable, when running it, the launcher won't detect the game files and tell me to install them even though they already are. I tried multiple stuff, installing the game with Lutris ( didn't work ), PlayOnLinux didn't work either. So yeah, i'm stuck..

Tl;dr : The game launcher won't detect the game files even thought they're installed

We just released our new historical adventure about WW2 aftermath for Linux and we're excited!

Hello everyone!
TL;DR: Linux gamers are great and we have a new native adventure game!

You might remember me from a year ago when we released our previous game Attentat 1942 for native Linux. Well, we just uploaded another free OS build to Steam! It's a follow-up called Svoboda 1945: Liberation, taking place after the World War 2, exploring dark chapters of history and historical as well as personal traumas.

We strive to do something unique with games and it helps that the response from the great Linux community was immense! So it was no-brainer that we should port our next one over to Linux as well. It took some fiddling with videos, but it's finally live at https://store.steampowered.com/app/1076620

Here's a post with a special image I created to celebrate, there's a little something hidden in, guess which: https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/1076620/view/2974053085633515365

I can answer any questions, naturally :) Thanks a lot for all the support throughout the years and the vibe Linux gaming community gives and happy playing (whichever game that ends up being).

Good 75% wireless gaming keyboard

I am looking for a 75% wireless gaming keyboard. I live in Germany so I would like to have a German layout and for sure it should work well in Linux. It should also have low latency in wireless mode because that will be my main usage for it. I really like Keychron K3, unfortunately no German layout available for it and it has a quite high latency.

I was considering Royal Kludge RK84 but unfortunately it does not have a Germany layout. So are there any suggestions for a good Wireless gaming keyboard with Germany layout?

Solved: No log file using PROTON_LOG=1 for a non-Steam game

There seems to be a bug where Launch Options don't get set properly for a non-Steam game under Proton.

In the Properties/Shortcut dialog I set Launch Options to PROTON_LOG=1 %command but no log file was produced. A little investigation showed why:

188582 ?        S      0:00 python3 /d1/steam/steamapps/common/Proton - Experimental/proton waitforexitandrun /d1/protongames/Guild_Wars_2/Gw2-64.exe PROTON_LOG=1 %command%
188584 ?        Sl     0:00 steam /d1/protongames/Guild_Wars_2/Gw2-64.exe PROTON_LOG=1 %command%
188723 ?        Sl     0:18 Z:\d1\protongames\Guild_Wars_2\Gw2-64.exe PROTON_LOG=1 %command%

Yeah, no wonder that didn't work! There's a workaround, which is to start Steam in a terminal like this:

PROTON_LOG=1 steam

That proton Python script is the one that checks for PROTON_LOG, but it's there on the command line so an earlier step is bugged.

Unreal Gold (Steam) + D3D11

Hi, I'm playing Unreal Gold again and was looking how to make it run a bit more smooth and beautiful than the default state it came in from Steam. I found an unofficial 227i patch that adds D3D9 rendering support and that improves the visuals (among other things) already a lot. I also found a D3D11 renderer + normal/height maps on moddb, but trying to get this to work immediately threw this error. Anyone have an idea what I can try to make it work? I've been a long time Linux user, but the gaming side is pretty new to me. Thanks!

how do i play starcraft brood war on battle net and NOT starcraft remastered with takes up almost 7 GIGS

what an Odyssey of learning this has been, i want to say firstly that most of you have been really helpful and i really appreciate the free help you have given me.

secondly i want to say that a few have you have been real pricks who only want to make fun of people because they are ignorant.

2 days ago i didn't know what lutris was, or that you could download battle net through it, i have had absolutely no idea what i am doing and the written instructions people have given me make sense in their head but keep consistently not making any sense to me, but hey help vampires gonna help vampire right? it's my fault for not understanding your nonsense not your fault for not communicating clearly enough lol

anyway, i have installed lutris, installed battle net, logged into the account now after all that, i can't find starcraft brood war, it's only giving me the option for starcraft remastered, and it's almost 7 gigs, why can't i find brood war? i remember brood war being like less then a gig but this is almost 7 gigs,

thank you.

Guilty Gear Strive massive framerate dips

OS: Manjaro w/ 5.13.4-182-tkg-pds Hardware: Aurora-R4 motherboard, Intel Xeon E5-2690, Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 3GB, 4x8 GB DDR3

Issue: While playing, certain stages can cause the game to dip well below 60 FPS (30, or even less at times) making it unplayable. During the loading screen between stages, framerate will always dip to around 5-10 FPS. GPU usage seems to max out at 99/100% during gameplay, even though I'm running the game on extremely low settings (far lower than should be needed).
For reference, when running Tekken 7 on high graphics settings, I experience no framerate issues at all. I've tried multiple versions of Proton, as well as different kernels and the issue persists. The game can reach 1-2 FPS during character select sometimes, with no rhyme or reason as to when it chooses to do so. All other games run perfectly fine as well.

Problem with "blocking" WASD-keys in a Proton game

Hi,

I have this weird issue with game "Green Hell".

If I keep one of the WASD keys pressed (in order to move my character around) for longer, after I release it, my character will continue moving forward for some time. Generally the longer I keep the button pressed, the longer character keeps moving after I release the key. This issue persists in both single and multiplayer modes.

I use Proton Glorious Egg 6.15-2 to run this game (I found out it works best on my system), but with other versions of Proton I run into the same problem. My system is Pop Os 21.04 and I run i on an AMD based system.

I tried running the game with the same version of Proton on another computer with the same system, but it doesn't change anything. Therefore I have assumed it is an issue that is specific to my computer. It is a ThinkPad T14 (AMD version). I have found on this subreddit a suggestion that this command might be a solution:

xset r off

but it didn't change anything.

Does anybody have encountered this problem in Green Hell or other games? What can I do to fix this?

Thanks in advance for help.

No arguments: Game uses wrong GPU

primusrun %command%: Game doesn't start

optirun %command%: Game hangs then crashes on launch

__NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD=1 __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=nvidia %command%: Game doesn't launch

Corectrl performance issue

OS: arch w/ 5.13.13 zen

Hardware: ryzen 3 2200g, rx 570 8gb, 2x4gb 2400mhz ram, asrock a320m-hdv, 500w

Issue: corectrl, and the git version, seem to decrease performance in some games. Even if I dont touch any settings in corectrl it will decrease the performance. So far Ive tested this in 4 games; rage 2, yooka laylee, gta v, and sunset overdrive. Rage 2 and yooka laylee work fine with corectrl while gta v and sunset overdrive do have a noticeable decrease in performance. I usually play games at 60 FPS locked but there are times where it will dip below 60fps especially in gta v so I tried overclocking my gpu. After noticing a performance decrease I began to test different games with unlocked FPS. If its worth noting, Im playing rage 2 and yooka laylee through wine 6.16 and gta v and sunset overdrive through steam using proton experimental and proton fe 6.16

Compositor Screen Tearing fixed on Latest Manjaro / Nvidia drivers?

I just switched back from Windows 10 to Manjaro, and the very first thing that I noticed is that the horrendous screen tearing on Nvidia cards with linux appears to be totally gone. Usually I have to enable full composition pipeline to get that to stop, and that's usually super annoying as I have to disable it for various other games and programs that it interferes with.

Did Nvidia or Manjaro roll out an update that fixed this? I'm not using Wayland or anything, just bog standard Manjaro. It's such a nice change.

Advice regarding mobile GPU for Linux gaming needed.

Hello fellow linux gamers!

I'm currently eye balling for a gaming laptop, and wanted some insight on GPU selection specifically. Is it worth picking AMD Radeon mobile GPU over nVidia for sake of trouble-free experience?

I know that desktop AMD GPU in Linux works flawlessly out of the box (not sure about mobile GPUs though), while nVidia had/has some weird Optimus technology without any decent Linux support for ages, and I'm not sure what its current status.

I'm targeting to the rather budget-friendly RX5600m/GTX1660Ti/RTX3050Ti performance range, but can consider something like RX6600m/RTX3060 as well if I could see clear benefits in it.

I would appreciate any of your feedbacks regarding using Linux for gaming on laptops.

SteamVR picture in picture

I've seen a few solutions OVRDrop and DailyOVR, OVR Toolkit

I'm looking to implement basic picture in picture in a game like Elite Dangerous, much like this: https://youtu.be/kgLnGNrJPfI

I don't care to do much with applications, just want to watch a movie in VR while in ED. I have a ton of success with VR on linux but this seems like the/a last hurtle.

I can't find concrete way of doing this on linux so asking here in case someone has looked into this before.

It would appear OVRDrop's developer has mentioned it relies on Windows APIs. Not sure which ones but perhaps not in wine, but they don't outright say it won't work through wine. https://steamcommunity.com/app/586210/discussions/1/1835685838068610278/#c1835685838068982504

My Steam blacked out -- only big picture works?

I'd been playing a lot offline because I was transitioning in a move for over 2 months. Now I just don't bother because I can just play my game and be happy (I don't play much online and don't play well with others. :)

But yesterday I was playing a game and swapped online to check something, and when steam restarted, every option was black except for library -> downloads.

I'm fully updated (running Arch), I rebooted, and now I'm getting concerned.

Clicking the Friends & Chat button (bottom right) no longer pulls up the chat.

(At this point, I just went to bed. Now after a 9 hour workday with an hour lunch and 3 hours of commuting, I'm back home...)

I finally discovered that if I use the big mode picture (which is complete ass, and I'd know being asinine), I can access everything. I exited that, and I'm back to black screens everywhere.

I'm not finding anything similar online, so I'm hoping I find someone here since it seems to be the most relative option (linux gamers). If anyone has any input on this, please let me know? I've tried most everything, and I'm not finding any solid info except uninstall and reinstall. I'd rather have input from this community before asking /r/steam.

This is what I see in every menu except the library -> downloads: https://i.imgur.com/Jh9cuxu.png

Trying to get VR working on an Embedded Box

I'm trying to get VR working with this Embedded Box and a Valve Index, running Debian 11, not looking for actual games, (planning on running an embedded project). I'm using OpenXR and Monado for the VR runtime and even just running the hello_xr demo (only rendering some cubes and squares) I'm getting very poor performance. Is this something to be expected from the Vega 7 graphics, or are there some different drivers or something I can try. They advertise being able to use up to 4 4K displays so I figure it should be able to get some decent performance with the Valve Index

My 165Hz monitor is not being detected as such

I recently installed Arch on my 2019 Razer Blade 15 (RTX 3070, 1440p 165Hz panel) and it plays games (thank you Proton!) but there's screen tearing out the wazoo (this is of course easily fixed by turning VSync on) and it won't go higher than 60Hz. In nvidia-settings the internal monitor is detected as 60.00Hz and "G-SYNC Unvalidated". I can force-enable G-Sync using this hack, but I can't get the refresh rate higher than 60Hz. xrandr -r 165 just says "Rate 165.00 not available for this size", which I'm guessing means "Yeah sorry bud, that's a 60Hz monitor". I've disabled Optimus already, which is a prerequisite for 165Hz on this machine. Setting the display to 165Hz works fine in Windows. Is this something wrong with the graphics driver not being able to query the panel and I'm SOL, or is there something I need to install or override or what?

Here's a screenshot of nvidia-settings

Does wine/dxvk support directx12 yet? I thought it did but any game that has dx12 mode won't run for me

The few games I've tried that have dx12 tell me it isn't supported on my system, and tells me to run in dx11 mode or just resets itself back to dx11. I was sure I ran the ascent in dx12 mode a few weeks ago, now it says it can't. Was I under the wrong impression that wine/dxvk can support directx12 ?

Might switch to Linux (eventually)

Hello Linux World!

I am no stranger to the Linux desktop however apps have pretty much kept me away, gimp is still 5 years off of what Photoshop and Affinity Photo are now which is to say Linux will have more homes in the coming decade (yay!). I mainly game and most of my games actually run on Linux however there's pieces to my setup that don't quite work yet.

I got an Elgato Wave XLR to use my Shure SM7B which also powers my Sennheiser HD600s (always get an aftermarket cable and 1/4" to 3.5mm adapter (get the official one))

I se the Elgato 4k60 Pro MK2 to capture my Consoles (primarily PS5)

I use my old Elgato HD60S to use my Sony A6400 as a webcam

I also have a streamdeck and heavily use the Wave Link software

So yea kinda use Elgato stuff for streaming, wave link is probably the biggest one as I heavily use it for more than just streaming... No idea if Voicemod would be a good alternative (that integrates with the stream deck) if it is I would support the software and get potato as I need a few mixes (1 for game, 1 for web browser which generally is just youtube music, 1 for an actual music streaming software like spotify, another for console (4k60 pro mk2))

The next hurdle is my photo suite, I moved over the affinity suite at least for photo, vector, and publishing. Scribus looks like a good alternative to affinity publisher and indesign, and inkscape has always been an actual alternative to adobe illustrator ( I haven't used much of affinity designer but it was an upgrade over illustrator from the few times I used it..)

As for games 99% of my library has a platinum rating on Proton and that's mainly cause I just play fighting games.. yes a few pieces like FighterZ don't run online cause of anti cheat which I think might be resolved by the time the steamdeck is released. So gaming is a non issue, it's just my elgato hardware and apps that are sadly keeping me chained to windows atm and Windows 11 seems to be more resource intensive which for 32gb of ram, gtx 1080, 6700k @ 4.5ghz should be a non issue. Granted Discord and Chrome are running 100% of the time, If I closed everything I usually have an 8-15% cpu usage. Still, resource management has always been better on linux by a large mile.

Any ideas would be great, I don't want to dual boot as my boot drive is only 256gb

Hey, i need some help with a game, I am new to linux and i ran out of ideas

I am trying to run this game called Alicia Online, it's a preety old horse racing game that i used to play with my gf, but now that i switched to linux it's kinda hard to get it working, maybe you guys can help me. The game requires Microsoft AppLocale since it's native language is korean, on windows it's easy, just install the applocale and you're done, but here, even if i do it with wine, whenever i start the launcher it still asks me to install it over and over again, is there any way to bypass this problem ? ( i dont think running the game without the launcher could work since the launcher is tied to the login system )

Nvidia X Server Display Configuration not being saved

Since i got the nvidia driver (Version 470.57.02) on my Linux Mint 20.2 there is this problem that my display configuration is not being saved. I already configured and saved it to the file using sudo but it didn't work either. The only difference was that there was no "Really quit?", whereas when not run that way something like "X Server Display Configuration - Apply" would appear.

I red about editing the configuration files directly but only found posts where users tried to change other settings then I want to...

Do you think using an older driver might fix the problem?

Help in running Red Dead Online in Pop!_OS 20.04

I had recently downloaded Red dead Online via steam on my desktop running POP!_os 20.04. After working around a bit, I figured that I'm only able to launch the game via lutris, using the lutris proton layer. however, the vram memory on my rx550 4gb is completely utlised by other background applications, despite no apps running in the background, and the game being in low settings. Can anyone suggest a workaround regarding this problem?

below are my desktop specs:

CPU: Ryzen 3 3200g

Motherboard: A320m chipset Galax

Ram: Crucial Ballistix 2*8 gb 3000mhz running at 2667mhz

GPU: PowerColor RX550 4gb with 3840mb available

Proton stopped working for all games after a few weeks without using Linux

I play Fallout New Vegas, GTA SA and stalker CoP on my laptop. After a few weeks of me not using it, I suddenly cannot run the first two mentioned games, despite they ran ok before. I've used proton 4.13 before, but I tried the 6.x and experimental too, and GTA doesn't launch at all and FNV gets into the launcher and after clicking OK on 'fnv will detect graphics settings', the launcher disappears. I have yet to test stalker and some of the lower proton versions, but I don't think it'll be different. Wdid?

High CPU Usage - linux-tkg-bmq

Hello. I just upgraded to kernel 5.14 and I noticed high CPU usage in Proton games. I tried playing Witcher 3 and saw 90% CPU usage. In Skyrim and Fallout 4, I saw 100% CPU usage all the time. I thought FSR launch command is the culprit and disabled it and saw the same result. Lastly, I downgraded back to 5.13.13 kernel and there's no 100% CPU usage in those games.

My questions are:

Is this issue only with me or is it happening to you guys too?

Are the stock 5.14 kernel and xanmod like this or what?

I'm running an i5 4th gen CPU and has 4C/4T, OS is Arch with plasma DE.

Anyone else experiencing this problem? The update was last night. Was working flawlessly yesterday. Now, some toons crash almost immediately when logged in. Others can move around for a while but the client locks up eventually.

Happening on mine and my wife's laptops (both Thinkpad X1C6). We play through Lutris. We're on Manjaro and it's completely up to date.

Not really sure how to proceed to troubleshoot and resolve this so any help is appreciated!

Loadless Speedrunning on Linux

If I recall correctly, someone once made a script which can loadlessly time on Linux. It connected with LiveSplit (Wine) Trough a socket and could do things like loadless timing on Linux if you provided proper route files.

Unfortunately, I forgot what that project was called and I wanted to check on it's current state and maybe even provide code or routefiles myself.

So my question is, does anyone know what that project is called and can ideally provide a link?

Fortnite on Linux soon or never?

First off; please don't mock me for wanting to play fortnite, i know the entirety of reddit will hate me now but i do like enjoying games. Since I've heard that Valve is working with EasyAntiCheat (i think, for it to work on proton) would it be possible to run Fortnite off Steam if that whole ordeal goes well? Possibly add the executable as a non-steam game? Hopefully, but it could also never happen; what do you think?

How to maintain single drive_c for multiple games.

Hey im new to linux gaming and to reddit.

I am using steam to run games like csgo, gta v, and lutris to run battlefield v. They run smoothly to my surprise, thanks to all contributors.

I have question regarding the installation procedure, as I noticed each games have their own drive_c containing folders like program files, users. These folders are duplicated across different games and taking up more disk space and also i feel it as little unorganised.

I have noticed same behaviour for both steam and lutris installation although multiple games run with same proton or runner versions respectively.

Is there any way to maintain/force one drive_c for steam and one drive_c for lutris (like real windows) for each proton or wine runner version respectively and use/share it across different games?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Call of Duty Deluxe on Mac via Wineskin with controller. Is it possible?

I would like to play the first Call of Duty so I can proudly say I have played them all ;) The reason I don't play it on my PC is the fact that there is no comfortable place in my home to setup and play. I would like to sit comfortably on my sofa. So, I tried all sorts of combos, trying in vain to stream it via Steam Link or via Apple TV to my TV, which both lagged horribly. So, I settled for playing it on my Mac, on MacBook which I can have on the sofa with me, and having CoD installed via Wine on the Mac, which is running beautifully. Now my options are to plug in a mouse and go the keyboard/mouse route (but it's hard to use a mouse on a sofa), or using a controller on my mac (I managed to connect my PS4 one via Bluetooth), playing CoD 1 via Wineskin, via controller emulator (sine CoD doesn't have native support)

; TLDR

CoD1 installed on a MacBook via Wine, with a controller emulator (in Wine) that is plugged into my Mac

Switching from windows to Linux: is it good for me?

Hi!

The title seems weird, I know. But it will make sense in a moment. I hope this is the right place!

I am a computer engineer student and a gamer. I use a lot Linux through WSL2 because I love the Linux terminal and using it but I use to play with my notebook with different games too, in particular from steam and outside steam I use league of legends.

Now, for steam games I know about proton and protondb and it seems that a lot of titles I play are good (except destiny 2). But what about League of Legends? How good it is with Lutris and what happens at each patch? I should wait for a community launch script every time or this is usually needed after big updates? What is the situation about riot's anti cheat support and other anti cheat support like the one in Destiny 2?

Actually the only thing the stops me to switch full time to Linux is gaming. I don't want to reboot my PC to play something, maybe because between a long running script and another I want to do some LOL plays or finish Horizon Zero Dawn.

I really would like to switch full time to Linux (always in dual boot with windows, it can be always useful). What do you suggest to me, and in particular what are the answers to my questions?

If you are asking, actually my notebook has a 6th i5 and a 960m. I know how gaming on Linux works actually, with a translation layer from DirectX to Vulcan but I don't know how much "heavy" this translation is in practice. I know, it's pretty old but I've to finish my studies before moving buying a new desktop rig where I want to use Linux too (and here, how is the support for Ray tracing?).

Thank you for reading all this poem!

Why do YOU use Linux to game?

I'm looking for people's reasons for switching from Windows to Linux for gaming. I'm not looking for a "f*** Microsoft" or a "Windows is spyware" argument either.

For example, my reasons for switching are, better performance in titles I care about (~4k low 45fps -> ~4k med 60fps), MangoHUD and the biggest one is Alt-Tab always just works.

If your reasoning was better performance please include your approximate performance, system specs, distro and any performance tweaks you made. i5-4690k + GTX 1070 PopOS 21.04

eGPU on Linux and its future in general.

Every source i checked was same page about eGPU on Linux : "it works fine !" . I love to see first hand experience from Linux gamers about this subject. Ofc in few words i do not obligate someone write 5 page review, but i will read all of them if u put link here. Also very interesting subject, main way to use eGPU is intel licensed thunderbolt, so if they have good time on there in-house GPU, also new thunderbolt will go to 80gb, will this technology see more sunshine ? And be more competitive for people how needs laptop at work and gaming system at home.

Question about modding the Half-Life games

I've recently tried to install some mods for Half-Life 2 and the results were mixed at best. I tried installing SMOD and while it seemed to launch ok, there were many missing textures and models and the campaign levels were unable to load.

I did some research on my own and the general consensus is that it's very difficult if the mod doesn't have native binaries.

Now I'm here and asking for help. Is there any hope or am I SOL?

I'm using Manjaro with KDE and run an AMD Ryzen 3700X, 16GB of RAM and an RX580 with 8GB of VRAM.

Is there any way to make Dota 2 playable@30 FPS &amp; lowest graphics on Intel HD3000?

Here's what I tried:

  1. Using stock Vulkan renderer results in extreme graphical bugs both in game and main menu.
  2. Using Vulkan and setting MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=crocus environment variable in /etc/environment results in Dota launching with a blank screen.
  3. Using OpenGL renderer results in PowerPoint presentation level of performance

Is running a completely barebones Dota 2 setup on Intel HD 3000 possible, or should I just give up and revert to Windows 10?

Setup: Kubuntu 21.04, HP Elitebook 8470p, Intel i5-3380M, 8GB RAM, an SSD.

Moving from consoles to Linux, with a strong Linux background

Hi everybody,

I'm a console gamer, but I work heavily on Linux for my job. I'm considering building a Linux-based gaming rig because I really, really dislike running Windows. The thing that set me on this is that my cheap-ass media server needs to be replaced, and it occurred to me that if I don't cheap out on it this time, I might have a decent time playing games on it instead of my PlayStation from time to time.

I've read up a bit on Proton and I feel like I've got a fundamental idea of what percentage of games are likely to run natively, how much time I'm likely to spend fixing stuff, etc., but I have some questions I'm hoping you'll have opinions about.

  1. I've got a TV that I like in my living room, and I don't really want to be sitting at a desk looking at a proper monitor like I do all day at work. Can I reasonably do something like launch games from an SSH session from my laptop? Is this a common pattern? Is this a terrible idea?
  2. How much am I likely to spend if I want a build that's comparable to current-gen consoles, and leaves me in good shape to upgrade later? The last time I built a machine for gaming was like 20 years ago. From reading this forum and others, I get the impression that I'll just be swapping out graphics cards as the major "upgrade" component for a few years, as opposed to replacing the main CPU. Does that impression seem accurate?
  3. How is performance in Wine for big, current games? If a game can run in either Wine or Proton, does one consistently offer a better experience than the other?
  4. Given my couch situation as described in #1, am I gonna have a bad time if I use a traditional controller rather than setting up a mouse and keyboard?
  5. Any other gotchas or things I should be thinking about coming from consoles, but knowing a lot about Linux?

I'll do some research and/or ask on r/buildapc as per the wiki for specifics on hardware, but if you're reading this and have thoughts I'd love to hear them.

If this works out, hopefully I'll be in a good position to provide some quality support to others in here once I see what I'm up against.

Thanks!

Having trouble downloading genshin impact on lutris.

It got stuck after this

01a8:fixme:file:ReplaceFileW Ignoring flags 2.

It says it's launching the game installer but the game installer has already launched and the game itself is downloading.

I've done this 3 times so far.

The first the lutris downloader did it's job and it closed, but while the genhsin impact installer was downloading the game I had to restart my pc.

Before downloading I deleted the game's directory in /home/******/games/.

Then I tried downloading it again, so I went back to the lutris installer and tried that again. It got stuck on the same problem but since the game appeared to be downloading fine, I tried to cancel the lutris installer but not remove the game's files and this cancelled wine too causing the genshin impact installer to close.

Then I deleted the game's directtory again and it got stuck on the same problem.

New distro for gaming needed!

I've been trying to find a good gaming distro for AGES that will work on my computer. Searched high and low, made friends on the way, lost them, and now here I am.

I need something that will run on an average mid-level performance HP notebook laptop from 2016. My CPU/GPU is an AMD A4-5000 GPU with Radeon HD 8330 graphics. I have tried Linux Vulkan on it and I can't get it to work (dang that Unity). It always has driver problems no matter whether I install open source drivers or attempt to get proprietary drivers working (never works). I always use Team Fortress 2 first when trying it out since it is the PC game I play most often and uses the Source engine which many of my other games use. It was also the first game VALVE ported to Linux in their wonderful venture that made Linux gaming good. I will also say if I have tried them with the GoldSRC engine if I have tested. The distro also needs to be dual-bootable and needs to be able to be installed using at least a somewhat graphical installer with support for a partition manager such as GParted. A live enviroment is preferred.

Distros I have already tried (and don't want to see recommended unless I'm doing something wrong).

  • Linux Mint/LMDE - My first distro. I noticed some performance upgrades compared to stinky old Windows 10 but overall it was fairly average. Half Life and other GoldSRC engine games did not run without Proton.
  • Debian 10 Stable (Now OldStable) - Did not run properly. What more can I say?
  • Debian 11 Unstable (Now Stable) - Performance was the defenition of mediocre to bad performance. GoldSRC games (specifically Half-Life) ran without Proton, but with frames that made the games unplayable (I'm talking about 2 FPS Atari crap here).
  • Manjaro - Really nice, but all Source engine games I tried suffered a major graphical issue with everything stretching and going everywhere and being distorted at random at almost lightspeed making the games literally unplayable. I do not recall GoldSRC engine games working without Proton.
  • Pop!_OS - This is a case where it was wonderful and I honestly think Pop!_OS is that one beautiful and wholesome distro that loves everyone and everything. I used it for ages and suffered little major problems. However, I cluttered it up and at that point I was starting to think that sticking to Pop!_OS was becoming a bit of a crutch. I'd love to go back but something tells me not to, and I probably won't unless I never find anything better. GoldSRC engine games did not work without Proton.
  • ArcoLinux - Was wonderful while it lasted. After a while every page in Steam (the shop, community, library) showed completely black and blank. In the case of TF2, I installed alot of mods and then I got this problem where there were black polygonal flickering things that got worse and worse and eventually made the game unplayable. I tried uninstalling all mods including my custom HUD but the problem still persisted. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling TF2 in Steam Big Picture which still worked but the problem still persisted.
  • DraugerOS - I tried to install, I gave up. It still looks promising but there were enough problems to make me give up.
  • CentOS Stream - Currently using right now. It looked promising until I joined a server and got Vietnam War flashbacks (the same graphical problem from Manjaro happened here, just not as intense, but still making the game impossible to play).

Notes:

I have used Fedora but not with Steam. I do not expect it to be better than CentOS, though, because it is related to RHEL like CentOS is.

I do not want base Ubuntu or Linux Mint.

I will not install Gentoo.

FF14 non steam ver on Linus

Yo, Hi everyone. With the introduction of Windows11 I think I've finally made the deicion to make the switch that I've always wanted to. After years of saying "maybe next year, maybe they'll make something better" along comes PopOS and Valve's SteamDeck. The time has come, however I have one problem. Is anyone playing FF14 with the non steam version of the game? I've seen youtube videos of people getting the game to work, but they used the steam ver.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cyberpunk fails to run

Hey fellow linux gamers!

I've installed Cyberpunk 2077 on my computer using Proton experimental.

I can start the game, access the main menu where i can continue the save i have (made on windows, windows bad...) but it crashes before reaching the game.

I've tried creating a new character, i can go on with the full creation, then i reached the first images of the game and it generally crash after a few seconds... (i've tried several times)

The game is up to date with the patch 1.3, i don't know if it ran with the previous patch as i've switch back to linux a couple of weeks ago.

I am using ubuntu 20.04 (standard kernel 5.11.0-27-generic) with the NVidia driver version 470.57.02

Any ideas? Thanks!

Run league in a vm?

Hi

Today I set up gnome boxes with a windows 10 iso to play league, but as I got into the game, it suddenly crashed. I thought that since boxes uses kvm / qemu it would bypass anticheats found in games like league. Is there a way to make it run or should I just double boot?

Please tell me if I can give you more info with terminal commands etc because I'm not very experienced with virtual machines and I dont know how to trouble shoot the problem.

thanks in advance

Triple monitor gaming

I have managed to nick a 3080ti for a system that I started building in January. The box is an unraid server running various OS vm and I have tried a few linux distros as well. I quite liked them and yes I was a windows user and I think I'm liking linux more over the last few months. The initial plan was to run a windows setup with 3 monitors, but then since I couldn't procure a GFX card I was pretty much stuck. I took the opportunity exploring various distros and learning a little (very little) about linux and I must say it's become a lot better since I last used fedora in 2010. Now I honestly want to shift my core computing to linux and also want to game. My work needs multiple monitors at times and that is the only thing that I didn't find much information about using linux. Is there any distro which I can use for attaching 3 monitors simultaneously and also use it for gaming? Currently I'm working on a laptop which becomes quite cumbersome. Single screen monitoring is difficult. I want 1 VM to be doing both, work and gaming on variable number of monitors (3 maximum).

Manjaro won't stream to Nvidia Shield Pro

I used to run windows 10, but with the steam deck coming out soon I figured now is a great time to switch back to linux in hopes that games will be much better supported in the very near future

I have a i-10700 and a 3090 in my desktop, and when I was running windows I was able to use steam link to stream to my nvidia shield relatively easily.

I just installed Manjaro last night and I'm having some serious issues.

I'm able to get into big picture mode, and when testing the connection it says it passes great.

However, when I go to "play game," I get the red "poor connection" icon in the bottom right of the screen and the game won't display on my shield.

I feel like this may be a configuration issue somewhere... But google isn't telling me anything. Does anyone have any insight? Have a friend coming in this week and wanted to game on the couch with him, and I'd rather not install a windows VM only for remote play and only for when I want to play on my shield.

Edit: My PC and the Shield are connected via a gigabit ethernet connection on the same network, so I highly doubt this is a hardware limitation

AMD Radeon 7850 - How does this card hold up as of 2021? (looking for a decent video card that can handle light/medium gaming in WINE)

Hi all, so I'm building a PC after my old one finally died, and I have two choices for the video card: A Geforce GTX 1050 Ti or an AMD HIS 7850 2GB GDDR5. I would like to stick with the 7850 if possible since I am greatly interested in having a more "libre" system, and am not interested in heavy gaming. However, I am a bit skeptical about using the 7850, since last time I used it, it had a lot of driver issues. Suspend didn't work correctly, WINE support and game performance was very spotty, etc. It's been about 2 years since I used it and so I was wondering if things have improved since then. I should also say that I was using the amdgpu driver and not the radeon one.

Link related is the card I am referring to. http://www.hisdigital.com/un/product2-698.shtml

Setting firewall rules to separate games instead of the whole Wine

Hi, I use Lutris and Wine to run games. There is a little problem: I use a firewall and if blocked, Lutris gets stuck, for some reason, and the same for the games it runs. So I allow Lutris to run through, but there is a problem for the games. When opening two different games with the same settings, the firewall (OpenSnitch) does not know how to separate both game .exes, so the rule blocks the whole Wine: (ex: /home/username/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-fshack-6.14-3-x86_64/bin/wine64-preloader).

Basically, either I block all of them, or I block no one. I only want to block some of them, not all, but since the rules apply to all Wine, I can't block separate apps, forced to block them all.

Thanks in advance.

Steam executable file for CoreCtrl

I had a bit of trouble figuring this out and couldn't find much documentation on it, hopefully this ends up being helpful to someone.

I'm getting Manjaro KDE setup on my desktop and I kept trying to use /usr/bin/steam or /usr/bin/steam-runtime as my executable file in CoreCtrl (v. 1.1.5) to trigger my Steam profile but it just wouldn't work. I finally found it and tested successfully using ~/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/steam as the executable. I've tried this successfully with Pop-OS as well using the 1.2 dev version of CoreCtrl.

Need helping testing the Linux port of my game's demo on Steam. (Does it launch?)

Hello! This is the third round of testing I'm doing for Crimson Glaive Sigma's Linux port. The first and second rounds of testing of the Itch demo went well and helped me ensure it was at least in a playable state. Now I just want to ensure the demo version works through Steam on Linux before I actually release the full Linux port, both on Steam and on Itch.io.

There are a few problems with the Linux port that I suspect lies kind of with Unity, the most significant of which is the inability to change the resolution of the game from native fullscreen to anything else without running it with specific settings. If anyone tried, the rendering would break and at best it would just display a black screen. A little unfortunate, but overall something I'll have to put up with for now at least.

Though, all I want to know is if the game actually starts properly when launched through Steam. On the Itch demo version, there was always some issues with having to give the application permission to run as an executable. I just want to know for sure if Steam circumvents that problem and that it's universal. I included a readme file and a launch script just in case, but I still need to know.

You don't need to play through the entire demo or anything (unless you want to!) but just getting to the main menu without problems is enough with this final round of pre-release testing.

This subreddit has been really helpful, but I hope I won't have to resort to this type of public testing for a while. (Kind of feel like I'm intruding somehow)

Running Elder Scrolls Online on Steam

I downloaded the Game with Steam and launched it with proton 6.3 but when it started it was pitch black so I went to protondb and looked at how it can be helped, and I saw I need to put PROTON_USE_WINED3D11=1 %command% to the launch options. And it worked, but when I tried to install it showed that I have only 7 GBGB of storage left, which wasn't true (i have around 200gb of free storage). Then a added to launch options PROTON_SET_GAME_DRIVE=1 so now my launch options look like this PROTON_USE_WINED3D11=1 PROTON_SET_GAME_DRIVE=1 %command% and it bumped up my free storage to 18GB free but still not enough for it to install. I also tried to install it anyway, but it threw an error on me saying I don't have enough permissions to write to the disk. How can it be helped? Also forgot to mention it is installed on another drive not where steam is installed.

I mean what difference does it make if I have all my games in one prefix or if I have all my games in a unique prefix for each.

Steam won't detect my mountpoints

When I mount my game drive (sdb1) to /data with exec permissions, steam denies anything exists within /data despite the output of ls /data containing all my files. When mounted without the exec permissions it accepts the content of the drive but cancels due to steam needing exec permissions. I am on gentoo with an EXT3 root partition and an NTFS game drive. Reformatting the drive is not an option.

Skyrim SE not loading mods installed with Vortex on Manjaro Linux

Hello, everyone. I am using Manjaro linux KDE Plasma version. I launch Skyrim SE through SteamPlay (with Proton). The game itself works fine but mods do not load, I installed the Alternative start mod to test but the game still begins in a carriage. All the mods were installed through Vortex manager, which I downloaded with Lutris. I don't get any errors when Vortex deploys mods, the Data folder has all the .esp files but still no mods in game. Skyrim SE is installed on a Windows-shared NTFS drive, Vortex is installed on the same drive as well (via Lutris, as I stated previously).

SKSE was installed using this guide. I tried loading some of my ancient saves but SKSE didn't register, however, those saves were played using other mods I currently don't have, maybe it's the reason.

All the screenshots you might be interested to see are here.

Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition multiplayer broken in proton after latest update.

Warning for anyone looking to get this game. Even though protonDB says it's platinum the game is now broken for Linux gamers and there's no sign of this being rectified anytime in the future.

Proton is not a silver bullet, and with a single update your game library can be taken from you. Native ports are important still!

My thoughts on Linux gaming and what's making me move my gaming needs elsewhere

I've been a Linux enthusiast since taking the dive at the start of lockdowns in 2020 with ElementaryOS. After about two weeks I dove deeper and tried, tried, and tried, until finally successfully installing Arch Linux. Since then, I've loved everything to do with Linux - particularly the focus on community-based (as opposed to customer-based) development. More recently, I built my first PC (Ryzen 5 3600, RTX 2060, 16GB DDR4) with gaming in mind.

When it comes to gaming on an alternative operating system Valve is really paving the way for great things. I'm really looking forward to the stir the Steam Deck is going to make in big circles like Epic Games and Activision/Blizzard. If the console sells well, these companies are going to want their games to be played on them and with a smooth user experience. Right now though, we're left what Proton can currently offer and what it's limited by in Anti-Cheat and proprietary APIs that will never get ported to Linux (turns out Phasmophobia uses the Cortana API to understand voices in game). Proton has come so far in recent years for what can actually be run. Hell, even without it you can run Overwatch in a few clicks thanks to the Lutris community. That said, there's a difference in the overall experience and ease of use that's being offered.

When installing games on Windows it's like the "Just Works" distro to end all "Just Works" distros. Eat your heart out, System76. Most things work pretty easily because the developers have tailored the experience to be a breeze. When you do the same things on Linux, it can still be a breeze; Steam installs no worries and some distros even have it pre-installed (not that that would be an issue when it's literally a single command in a terminal). Then, Steam lets you play your games with no worries, and after enabling proton the only thing preventing the experience from being entirely natural is checking ProtonDB outside of Steam for if the game works. But then you want to try something outside of Steam and unless you want a world of headaches for games that aren't native to the OS you really should stick to third party scripts like what Lutris provides.

I predict this will all get a lot better a few months after the Steam Deck launches. I don't really see a world where Epic Games won't want Fortnite running on that thing. Plus, Valve is improving upon Proton at breakneck pace now that the launch isn't too far away. I'll install a customised kernel in a heartbeat if it means playing Anti-Cheat games on glorious Linux. Until then though, I've made a pretty upsetting decision to move my gaming needs over to Windows 10. Although promising comments from Microsoft about Anti-Cheat for Halo Infinite have been made that leads me to believe they could possibly support Linux, I love Halo too much to miss out. MCC on PC is beautiful. I love Rocket League too much to limit playing it on a first-gen Xbox One (60FPS is just a godly experience). I want to cyberbully ghosts in Phasmophobia and have the ghost get angry at me for saying it's name. Linux is still going to be a daily driver for reddit and multimedia, but I'm going to wait until next year to see how these developments with what looks to be an awesome and highly sought after console plays out.

Sorry for the long post, but tell me if I'm missing anything or could be doing something else for the best experience. Wish I had enough money for another graphcis card for that VM experience.

TL;DR I made the sad decision to dual boot Windows for my gaming needs. I'm keen on seeing how much the gaming space on Linux progresses though, and this decision is by no means a final one.

I'm never getting off the Linux train, but I might move to that dirty carriage at the back every now and then when I want the good stuff.

lutris/overwatch mouse just refuses to work

I've followed the instructions necessary to install Overwatch through Lutris, and my mouse (a 6502) works just fine with Battlenet, yet when I actually try to launch Overwatch, my mouse does not react to anything on screen. I've tried unplugging it, etc, just refuses to do anything with Overwatch. When I tab out of Overwatch the mouse works perfectly fine, but it just does not react to Overwatch in particular. Any help would be appreciated!

Share tricks when a game does not work with proton.

I'm relatively new to play games. So wanted to ask this subreddit for any trick or formula on how to make a game work with proton if does not work out of the box.

Right now I want to make Aviary Attorney and The Unfinished Swan, but I just know how to do so much, don't know how to continue.

I start with sharing sharing what I have learned until now:

  • The first thing to do is to review protondb for info about the game.
  • If a game does not work with proton out of the box, you should try with Glorious Eggroll proton. This apply specially with game that rely in the media foundation for cut scenes.
  • If Glorious Eggroll doesn't work the first time, you should try deleting the wine prefix (don't forget to back up the save file if necessary), and run it again with Glorious Eggroll, sometimes that solve the problem.
  • If neither protondb or Glorious Eggroll work for the game, is moment for protontricks, and download the required packages for the game.
  • Recognizing the packages is the tricky part of protontricks. What I do first is to go to the game's installation folder and scan for dll files, and then see if there is an equivalent in protontricks.
  • I that doesn't work, I add "PROTON_LOG=1 %command%" to the game's launch options. This creates a log file in the home folder. Then review the file looking for errors or warnings. Trying to figure what packages could solve those.
  • In general, the packages "d3dcompiler_XX" are pretty easy to spot in the dll of the install folder or are mentioned in the log.

So that is. I would love to see what you can share.

Xorg Error with Wine 6+ and dual GPU laptop

Im having issues playing lol with a newer version of wine 6.15 on my dual gpu laptop. I had no issues running on my old wine-lol 5.8, but now I always get this error:

X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) Major opcode of failed request: 156 (NV-GLX) Minor opcode of failed request: 43 () Serial number of failed request: 339 Current serial number in output stream: 340

Major opcode of failed request: 156 (NV-GLX) Minor opcode of failed request: 43 () Serial number of failed request: 339 Current serial number in output stream: 340

I can confirm that this issue does not occurs when disabling "Enable NVIDIA Prime Render Offload" and "Use discrete graphics" options on lutris, but in that way my integrated GPU is used instead.

Here are my specs

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7500U CPU @ 2.70GHz Integrated GPU: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 620 Dedicated GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 940MX Wayland or X11? X11 WM: 2bwm

And the full log and full lutris log (obtained with lutris -d). I'm also using the optimus-manager tool.

I've already posted this in r/league-of-linux, does anyone experienced the same error?

Wine-Staging stopped working, "ShellExecuteEx failed: File not found" on previously functional games

So I got my games working after much effort (I made a thread about it here a couple of months ago), then they just stopped working after an update. Double-clicking the icons in the applications menu shows the spinning circle for a few seconds and nothing else.

ShellExecuteEx failed: File not found.

I've tried reinstalling wine-staging and one of the games from scratch but no luck.

I see there's a mention of fonts in the code up there and I did have to install some fonts to run my games, I guess they could have gotten corrupted somehow but would that have given a "file not found" error on the actual games?

I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 and there was a software update yesterday or the day before, can't remember if I actually played anything on wine between the update and the failure.

Any ideas?

Any way to make steam emulation cracks work when forcing proton on launch?

Tried searching and was unable to find any information on what I'm trying to fix here. And yes this post involves piracy, you won't sway my beliefs on it, we can agree to disagree.

I'm using a cracked version of a few games and I added them as 'non-steam games' to steam and in the properties forced the use of proton. Things seem to work but, as would happen without a crack applied. immediately after launch the process is killed and I'm redirected to the steam store page.

I really don't want to use something like lutris as steam seems to be much more portable and easy solution out of the box. Anyone know if it's possible? I have to look into why it's even happening because I assumed it was just an .exe shortcut when adding non steam games. I assume the implementation may use it's own steam .dlls? Thanks!

[Question] Could we see Linux gaming performance technically outstrip Windows in the near-term across the board?

So, i've been thinking recently. Given our semi-recent breakthroughs in terms of Windows gaming parity on Linux; could we get to a point where gaming on Linux is actually far more performant than it is on Windows?

I ask this due to our increasing ability to control more and more of the gaming pipeline from kernel -> userspace -> graphics API layers and now that system wide FSR has been figured out it's starting to look like we could see other big wins in other areas because of the level of customisation afforded to us by FOSS. Further more, it's possible that if the SteamDeck is a success (which it looks like it will be) we'll start to see publishers meeting us halfway which will potentially strengthen that position.

I'm keen to hear your thoughts, but I for one am very hopeful that this is going to be a reality sooner rather than later.

Linux Game Testers Required | Demo Included

After getting so much great information from everyone, I managed to create a very short demo that can be tested with the main criteria of the game.

I tried Linux on a VM but I'm not able to play it. Therefore, I need more experienced Linux gamers to let me know if it actually runs (properly) or doesn't run at all.

If you'd like to help a solo indie dev, you can do that by downloading the demo and check if it runs. CABOUS | Testing Demo by CatCaveWithin (itch.io) (The password to the page is "CatCaveWihin").

If it runs that would be good. But I need you to make sure of the following:

  1. View the Loading Scene
  2. Load the Main Game Scene
  3. Move and navigate around
  4. Click the rock
  5. Listen to the played sounds
  6. Be followed by the Unknown.
  7. One last thing is the post processing effects whether they work or not

I highly appreciate your help.

Is there any front-end/launcher for emulation through Retroarch that supports robust metadata scraping and artwork (like Launchbox on Windows)?

I think this question has been asked a few times, so I am not trying to go back over any ground that has already been covered, but I am wondering if any other linux gamers who are fans of classic games / retroarch emulation can chime in.

Launchbox is by far my favorite frontend I have used on the Windows side (and BigBox, while IMO a bit "clunky" works when I feel like kicking back on the sofa to play games with just a controller).

On Linux (I am using Ubuntu LTS 20.04), I can't seem to find anything at all that even approximates some of the functionality that LB has, specifically when it comes to "scraping" metadata and having artwork and retail titles displayed. Retroarch can get "thumbnails," but only for console ROMS (I do some arcade stuff through FB Neo which it doesn't detect with its scans).

I have looked into Lutris, but the verdict is that it seems to come up short for ROMs in particular. Launchbox is dabbling with some linux support, but only through the most frankenstain's monster setup of Wine and .NET framework that ends up not working for me (and removing lots of functions even when it does work).

The other thing important for me about having a front-end is I play games on a secondary CRT display, so I need a front-end on my primary display to choose and launch the games with Retroarch set to use the secondary monitor.

So with that in mind, is there nothing out there for Linux better than Retroarch itself for these purposes?

How does the dxvk state cache work?

Were there changes recently? A couple months ago, I always had this message, that shaders were compiling at the start of the game, this message is gone now. Dolphin says, that the state cache file wasn't touched for a couple months, and there is nothing happening, when I delete it. I always thought, it would be generated on first launch, and when there are updates, etc. Is it possible to disable this somehow?

Asking because I'm currently trying to find clues why my game is lagging suddenly...

Search for RGB app.

Hello everyone!

I'm currently using Windows 10, but I'm tired of it. I want to make the switch to linux, and all the apps I've seen were compatible, but I have a Corsair Ironclaw RGB Wireless mouse and a Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless, and all are controlled by iCUE. The problem is that this program is not compatible with linux, and I can't find a solution to this problem. I tried OpenRGB, and a few others, but none are compatible with that hardware. All of the hardware specified works on linux, it's just that I can't configure the rgb.

I also tried using a VM with windows 10 to install icue, but first it was pretty heavy on my system (even though I have a very good PC), but still I don't want to have a vm occupying 2 gigs of memory just for a simple rgb control app, and second it didn't work, because when I passed the mouse, for example, to the vm, it became impossible to use on linux, so I can't do that.

As I said, I tried various ways to solve the problem, but they weren't successful. Can someone help me? Thanks for everything.

Proton question for gaming (moving from WinTrash to Arch)

Hello all !
Currently I am moving and in the meantime have put Arch KDE on my laptop (moving from Ubuntu) I am loving it and am considering on putting it on my main rig once I finish moving. What performance hit should I expect moving from native win10 gaming to Proton (if the game isnt supported) ? I have a Ryzen 9 3900x, RX 5700 XT, and 64 gigs of 3200mhz Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro RAM. My main games are CS:GO, Final Fantasy XIV Online, Civ 6, and other random older titles.

Thank you for your support and have a great day :D !

Proton Battleye Support?

Hey y'all, I'm new to the linux gaming community and I'm wondering if there is a way to get battleye working on proton. I have a Windows KVM that I am able to play most of my incompatible games on, but battleye is annoying and doesn't allow VMs to connect to servers, so I have to get those games to work on my native machine. Specifically, I'm trying to get Arma 3 to run with battleye. When I run Arma 3's battleye installer in it's wine prefix I get this error. Most of the research I've done on battleye has turned up negative, but maybe one of you has a nice workaround?

Which is your favorite controller for general purpose on Linux?

Just wanna read your thoughts, which is you favorite controller?

Mine is the dualsense 5, I use it for Steam games and emulators, but, for everything else like for example GOG and Itch.io games I use XBOX series controller because its compatibility.

Also, I use the steam controller time to time because I also like a lot

Steam Linux host, Remote Play not forwarding controller input

I am using a mostly headless Arch Linux host server, running Steam in a Gnome Xorg session, on AMD RX 480 8GB GPU, and attempting to connect to it using my M1 Mac mini with an Xbox Series X controller over Bluetooth.

Most of the time when I connect, even if I wire the controller directly to the host machine with a USB A to C cable, the game doesnt accept input. I have tried multiple games with the same result. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt.

I am not using Remote Play Together, so I cannot swap the controller inputs with another player, as I am the only controller in the game, unless there is a way to swap input 1 to local and then to remote again.

Apparently, this game doesnt support hot swappable inputs, either. (Psychonauts 2)

DirectX Error Black Ops Cold War

I'm thinking about switching over to linux mint as my primary OS, but before I do I want to make sure that I can get all my games working on linux. The only one that's leaving me stumped right now is black ops cold war on the battle.net launcher. I have tried running it through lutris and proton both of which give me an error saying "No valid DX12 video card found." Any help would be greatly appreciated.I've got a gtx 1080 running the latest nvidia driver.

What lightweight distro for gaming and game emulation are there?

Hey! I have a relatively low spec Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 4. I tried putting android x86 on it as the only os but it didn't really do what I wanted it to, so now I'm gunna try to use it for game emulation. I'm looking for a lightweight Linux distro that would also work to emulate ps2 and GameCube, and also maybe play some other games. Other than that, I may just watch media. I'm most familiar with Ubuntu based distros, having used Ubuntu, Linux mint, UbuntuM8 and Lubuntu, mostly for coding, but I'm open to anything that works. Thanks for help!

We cannot work around this. This message will likely be paired -- with a nearby 'Removing expired game' which means we cleaned up properly -- (we will log this event). This hint will be displayed only once.

This is the output from gamemoded when launching a game with gamemoderun. And it looks like it's effectively preventing gamemode from functioning at all.

This is on manjaro21.1 using the built-in gamemode packages (not the gamemode-git packages from AUR -i will test those as well and report on whether they have the same issue - but it looks more like a system problem).

Is there any way to fix this ? Running a chmod on the file has no effect (unsurprising, it's a virtual filesystem) and gamemodeD can't run as root or under sudo (already tested) so I guess there must be something, somewhere that can adjust the permissions to /sys ?

Update: confirmed, the git version of the package does not fix the issue.

I hope you like it. Afterwards ill be doing some hardware video reviews, post commentaries , gameplay's and more.

Overall it was interesting to do these series. Future top 100 lists will include post commentary for each game, or I might do live stream where I will play each game until I die once. That would be fun as it could easily lead to 12 to 16 hours live stream at least.

DLSS issues with Proton and Lutris

I'm running Manjaro with the latest NVidia drivers. Apparently DLSS is out and is working for some. I however cannot enable it in No Man's Sky on Stream or Wolfenstein Youngblood on Epic through Lutris. The option isn't even there. They both work just fine on Windows. Is there something special that I need to do to activate it? Is anyone else having issues?

Battle.net - Unexpected fatal error

Hello,

I have a fresh installation of Pop_OS! and have a RTX 3060.

I installed Battle.net via Lutris and then started installing the games. I'm running into and issue where the screen stays black for a few seconds after running the games and then it closes and an error appears: "An unexpected fatal error occurred."

There is a short explanation in the Lutris docs/wiki. I already have the required drivers. The Nvidia driver that I am using is the 470.57.02.

Has anyone experienced something similar?

mwheel sometimes acts as mouse5

I'm playing Team Fortress 2. My mouse5 button is binded to changing crosshair size. My mouse wheel has a 3% chance that the game will register it as mouse5, not as mwheeldown or mwheeelup. (No suck thing on Windows, same hardware) That means sometimes I scroll my wheel and instead of switching my weapon I change my crosshair size. (It could be tf2's mouse input lib, because linux tf2 lib has 2x the sensitivity than on windows, so anyone migrating from windows should divide their sensistivity by 2).

Greetings Everyone,

I'm currently working on building a Linux Port for my game and since I'm no tech geek, I'm in real need of game testers that would be expert enough to try out my game.

I'm using Unity engine for it. But I've tried to test with UBUNTU and couldn't figure out how to install it.

I really don't know if this information would help but I will be uploading the Linux port on itch.io.

Please contact me for further clarification and cooperation.

How well do old games run on linux?

There's a lot of old classics I've wanted to try (morrowind, thief, fallout 1,2 and tactics, psychonauts 1 star wars knights of the old republic, etc).

But I've avoided buying them because, if you read the user reviews, people are constantly talking about crashes, bugs and save corruption.

But a lot of those users are Windows users, not linux users. So how well do older games run on linux? Is linux prone to these same issues? Or is it more stable and playable?

Joining multiplayer games in Heroic

I've tried playing several Epic Store games using Heroic Games Launcher, and they seem to play singleplayer fine. However, I can't work out how to join or invite for a multiplayer game.

Normally, I'd open the Epic overlay (shift+F3) to either issue an invite or accept an invite, but that doesn't seem to be available. I'd also use the in-game server browser, but some games (like Mothergunship) don't have an in-game server browser and require use of the overlay.

What is the best workaround for accessing multiplayer games launched with Heroic? Is there a way to get the Epic overlay working, or is there some technique I can use to accept the invite without the overlay?

(Sorry for posting this here, but I couldn't find this week's stickied support thread.)

Problems with Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro

I just got a Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro wireless mouse. Unfortunately out of the box I had to slow down the mouse to the minimum in my Ubuntu. But even with that I can't set a proper sensitivity. I have installed openrazr with couple of front end tools which allowed me to control the DPI and the Polling, but I still feel something is not right.

And the worst annoying thing is the mouse freezes. Moving the mouse around i get a second or two freezes quite often.

Has anyone used that mouse before? Have you been able to make it properly working on Linux?

Does anyone know why Steam is downloading a bunch of tiny game patches lately?

Ever since the download manager was updated in beta, every evening I would come home to 7 to 10 game updates ready to be downloaded. None of them are more than a few MBs in size, and none of the developers are providing release notes so I can only assume this is Valve's doing.

radv is not a conformant vulkan implementation on PS4 Fedora

Then I rebuilt it using rpmbuild. The build went fine and the RPMs installed fine too. But, each time I try to run vulkaninfo or Wine I get the error, radv is not a conformant vulkan implementation.

Any suggestions are welcome. I have been trying for almost a month now with no success. I have tried different SRPMs including those from xxmitsu and gloriouseggroll. All of them throw this error. What am I doing wrong?

Skyrim SE - SSE Engine Fixes Audio Issue

Anyone else run into audio issues when using the SSE Engine Fixes mod in Skyrim SE? I've specifically narrowed it down to this mod. What happens is the game starts and boots fine, but after a couple of minutes the audio (except ambient noise like rain) completely disappears. Only fix is to restart the game. Also, while this post doesn't outright say it, I am 99% sure SSE Engine Fixes is what's causing this dude's issues too since his description perfectly describes the same issue I'm having.

My current workaround that seems to be working fine is using SSE Fixes for the performance improvements, and disabling pretty much every option in the the EngineFixes.toml file except MaxStdio which prevents that really annoying false save corruption bug. This tells me it's very likely it's one of the settings in the .toml file that's causing it. Either way, I'd love to be able to get SSE Engine Fixes working alone since it has changes I'd like to keep. Just need to know what option might be causing this behavior.

Currently disabling each option one by one to find the culprit but so far got nothing. Hell, disabling some of them resulted in almost instant CTDs when loading into the game so it isn't as simple as I'd hoped. Will update this post if I do find the solution. And before anyone asks; yes, I've already tried putting WINEDLLOVERRIDES=xaudio2_7=n,b PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=90 %command% in the Steam launch options.

Important info: (let me know if I missed anything)

- OS: Pop!_OS 21.04

- Specs: RX 580 8GB, Ryzen 5 3600XT, 16GB DDR4

- Using Mod Organizer 2 through rockerbacon's Lutris install scripts, which means I'm also using Proton 5.0-10.

- Load order, and list of mods.

Also, only somewhat related, but if anyone has figured out a way to run .NET Script Framework I'd love to hear it. Game wouldn't even start with it installed. Installing dotnet48 with protontricks (thanks to this) allowed me to load into the game, but the DLL Plugin Loader says that .NET Script Framework failed to initialize.

Unable to get 144hz at lower resolution for CSGO

Hey guys sorry to bother, I'm pretty stumped atm with an issue I've been trying to solve for last few hours - I'm using xrandr to force CSGO to use black bars at a resolution of 1024x768 which works fine, but for whatever reason my gpu/monitor can't output 144hz at that resolution, it will only do 75hz.

On Windows I don't have this particular issue, it just seems to be on Linux (Pop!_OS 21.04 - GPU Nvidia Driver 470.57.02). If I don't use xrandr in my steamapps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/csgo.sh the game will launch with 1024x768 stretched and the refresh rate at 144hz, but I want the black bars, but it will only allow 75hz at that resolution.

Has anyone had this issue before and know the solution, I appreciate if anyone can help

Thank you

How do I check if AMD FSR is actually working?

people say check the in-game resolution with your desktop resolution but I'm not sure if this makes sense because if my in-game resolution is 720 and my desktop resolution is 1440 then when I check the in-game resolution it's still going to say 720.

Not asking for solution. Just asking whether you face situation like me. Ryzen 7 5700U + PopOS 21.04 + Proton 6.3.6, dota 2 cannot start.

I am suspecting whether the CPU/GPU is too new to be handled. So asking whether anyone with similar series can run Proton layer properly.

I did report this on proton_db.

Similar laptop CPU: 5xxxU or desktop G series? 5xxxG

Splitgate on Majaro with previous Windows savegame [Steam]

I had been playing Splitgate on Windows 10 for like past 3 months. And I just shifted to Manjaro. I want to know how do I start the game with my Windows savefile [I have downloaded the file from the Steam cloud]. Cause every time I launch the game I get the initial tutorials. I tried running through Proton 6.3-6 but the game kicks me out saying suspicious activity. Please advice. Thanks!

I am not able to run Far Cry 5 in POP OS

I recently shifted from windows to Linux and wanted to try gaming on Linux but I am having some difficulties. When trying to run FAR CRY 5, it shows running but nothing appears and every time I try to run the game steam re-installs the scripts like Uplay, DirectX and Microsoft VC. I am using Proton 6.13-GE-1.

Messy directories

How do you deal with your messy /home directory?

I use Debian for 99% of my time on pc but when it comes to gaming I boot my windows partition because I hate how the games installed through different ways mess up my home partition.

Clearly I installed games through steam, steam proton, lutris, native, and there are always games which tend do bring in their own head and do what they want with my home directory

Is there anything I can do?

Fullscreen games minimizing/losing focus when mousing over notification

Hey folks, weird question. I'm running the latest Pop!_OS build and my fullscreen games have been either minimizing or losing focus when the mouse moves over a notification. They pop up in the top right for me and, when this happens, it's usually while playing an FPS game. The mouse will pass over the notification and leave the window, either minimizing it or causing me to be unable to look around until I bring it back and click into focus. Is there a way to fix this that doesn't involve disabling notifications? I like them and they're quite useful, but this is getting quite frustrating.

HELP!!!! Wine no longer runs applications

I've spent today trying to get some applications to work and I decided to try and install wine again. I'm not sure why I did this and I'm not sure if it's caused the problem, but now none of my previously running applications work at all, and using the console only results in "Wine is a 64-bit installation, It cannot be used with a 32-bit wineserver."
This happens despite me running programs just fine in the past, even running configuration results in this problem!!!
Help, please.

FPS Capped at about 60 fps suddenly. Checked usual suspects

I'm running a new Razer Blade base, and when I first set it up with Ubuntu 21.04 I was getting hundreds of FPS in CS:GO. Suddenly, about a week ago, things started to "feel weird", and I when I checked FPS again, I discoverd it was stuck right around 60, usually closer to 50. I'm running a 100 hz monitor, I checked all the vsync settings I could find in the game and in the nvidia control panel and confirmed they were off. I even confirmed that if I run windowed I get more FPS, so I assume this has to be some vsync setting coming from somewhere else, but I can't find it.

Any other places I should check? Some envvar or kernel param that the latest nvidia drivers want? This is driving my batty. It's playable, but now that I've gotten used to better it feels terrible!

REVO: Neon Space Shoot 'em up! - Out Now!

Hi there!

Im a first time game developer, working 100% solo, and Ive just released my studios debut title. REVO is a neon space shoot em up inspired by Galaga, TRON, and The Last Starfighter. It just launched on Steam and Itch.io on August 24th.

Gameplay Trailer

https://reddit.com/link/pcbf0n/video/4bi8cxjxesj71/player

This project has been in the works for nearly six years, Ive live streamed development a couple times a week, and have released playable builds quite often, sometimes monthly, for tester feedback. Now that its out, it feels like a huge success just to cross that finish line even without knowing how it will be received in the coming weeks and months.

Im very proud of what Ive made and want to make sure all of you 80s scifi and arcade nostalgia fans know its available to play right now. Did I mention it has an original synthwave soundtrack, too? Im also the music producer for this game.

Please leave a comment if you like it, play it, have any feedback whatsoever, or just want to talk about neon glows or how I probably shouldve made a Buckaroo Banzai inspired game instead. Regardless, Id love to talk about REVO and hope some of you give it a try and really enjoy it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Why do we nag indie devs to make native ports vs using proton ports?

If proton works, why do people still complain and not want to buy a game not given a native port on Linux? I feel like we should be rallying behind Proton, and Proton-GE. Its just as good, and sometimes better than playing on Windows.

Complaining to devs, indie ones in particular, just makes us look like assholes. However, more high budget studios should be expected to make Linux native ports. But sadly I feel like I constantly see small studios getting dogged for it.

Game closes immediately after launching

Hey guys, I'm new to using WINE as a whole, and I found myself at a dead end today. I got myself a copy of the VN Full Metal Daemon Muramasa. Everything, installation and all, ran smoothly, until it was time to launch the actual game. The game has a launcher, and when I try to run the game, the launcher works fine. But once I click start game, it immediately closes. I'm running this on Big Sur 11.3 Macbook Pro with Wineskin Winery 1.8.4.2. Any ideas on how I should start fixing this? All help is appreciated, thanks beforehand!

How to improve performance with Wine (Lutris) - Battlefield 4

So I have a 6900 XT and I was enjoying BF4 on Steam pretty easily. The annoying thing though is that origin is constantly crashing when I try to launch through steam, so I thought it'd be a better solution to setup origin via lutris instead.

However, the performance is inferior, and I'm not very well versed with lutris / standard wine. Is there anything I need to know?

I'm on NixOS which is why the setup with origin is just unpredictable, but even on Arch it was always a massive pain. I really hate that it requires origin to launch :(

Unpopular opinion: linux_gaming should be about native GNU/Linux gaming. Proton posts should be in /r/steamplay and Wine posts should be in /r/wine_gaming.

With subreddits dedicated to the discussion of gaming using Wine/Proton, why do we do it? Shouldn't we dedicate ourselves to discussion of actual, native GNU/Linux games? Shouldn't we strive to bring more native games to our platform rather than giving up and just being a poorly done copy of Windows?

I've given up using Wine/Proton for gaming because I want to encourage and promote native games on our platform. If people want to use Proton or Wine, I'm sure there will always be that part of the community that will do that. But as LINUX_gaming, shouldn't we concentrate on celebrating, promoting, encouraging, and finding native games to play, and leaving those other subreddits for Wine and its derivatives?

How do I get Clip Studio Paint (EX) working w/ Linux? (Pop!OS 21.04)

I'll just send the methods I've tried and the errors and problem's I've received.

Via *all* Lutris installs:

Path not found. It doesn't generate the .exe necessary to run the program.

Via custom Lutris install:

Syncing issue

Via regular installer running Wine & Proton (yes, I tried both):

Syncing issue

Running winecfg then wine:

Syncing issue

//

Running Clip Studio (just CS.)

Running every method I've tried:

Loads up perfectly, crashes 10 seconds later. No error messages.

I thought the syncing issue was because I already had an existing version of CSP installed, however, I completely *wiped* it from my PC. *Wiped*. Still experience this issue.

Is there any way to run it? I really wanna use it since I paid for it.

Gaming laptops without any Windows stuff

Say, I'm looking for a laptop with some decent gaming prowess, like a mobile 3070 or 3080, that:
a) Doesn't have Windows preinstalled
b) Doesn't come with any Microsoft logos on the hardware that I couldn't easily peel off, such as the one stamped on a windows key (as opposed to a generic logo on the same key, which is fine by me).

I'm a US buyer, and from my hunting around it seems like I'm limited to EU companies Slimbook and Tuxedo or the US-based System 76 (whose RTX 3000 series laptops are currently unavailable). Are there any other options I should consider for my apparently bizarrely specific set of requirements?

Wine error while running Psychonaut 2

I am trying to run Psychonaut 2 on linux but the game keeps crashing on me. The first loading screen appears and then the screen goes black. When I run the game from terminal using `wine Psychonaut2.exe` I get this error log (pastebin link).

FYI, I could run Subnautica easily using wine but this is giving me a tough time.

My machine specs:

Pop OS 21.04 (Ubuntu 21.04)

GTX 1050Ti

wine 6.15 (I have tried in all the latest versions - stable, staging and development)

Let me know if I should provide any other detail. I have spent the whole day googling about this problem but no luck. Any help would be highly appreciated!

Thanks.

Why does proton use so much of my VRAM and RAM?

Hi all,

i was wondering why proton uses so much of my VRAM and RAM when i play certain games on my laptop that i know i can play at proper fps when i still used windows. but now i can't play most of them due to the horrible framerate i'm getting when it runs trough proton.

for Example these are the stats i took when i played Mafia Definitive edition also pc specs will be displayed:

A new way to run Apex through WINE/Proton!?

Hey.

There is an open-source project called "R5Reloaded" which is like ElDewrito (community mod that wants to make it more moddable, add community servers, etc.). It doesn't run EAC!

So does it work?

Well, partially..

Myself and one other person have tried to run it, but there is some problem with the scripts not being applied correctly, causing the server browser to not display and mods in general to not work.

As I mentioned before the project is open-source (scripts, launcher,..)

https://github.com/Mauler125/detours_r5/

https://github.com/Mauler125/scripts_r5

If anyone would like to get more details, try it or help us come on their Discord there's a thread called "Linux" :)

Low-Spec Linux gaming in 2021

Hello, I haven't had Linux installed in my main rig for a bout a year now, I needed Autodesk Inventor for my thesis so there goes that. However, now that I'm finished I'm thinking of switching back to Linux. I have a Ryzen 3 2200G system with 16GB RAM, how is gaming looking right now wt this hardware level ? I remember I had quite a few problems and performance issues...

Minecraft Launcher Doesn't Preserve Settings

I have been playing minecraft on Manjaro, and its been running great due to the nature of java, but I am having some problems with the launcher. It doesn't remember any of the settings I give it. It remembers intallations and skins, but it never keeps me logged in, even when I check the box, and never remembers the amount of RAM I allocate to installations. This problem persists even when I reinstall the launcher, and wipe the local data. I am using the AUR version of the launcher (the one officially from mojang). Is there a 3rd party launcher I should use that works better? Is this a problem with the local data?

Youtube not work in VRChat

Youtube never worked, and for that I have to turn on Windows.

When placing a youtube link inside the game, it returns the following error "Video error, retrying"

I know it works with youtube-dll, I've tried using protontricks > winecfg and adding the youtube-dll library, but it didn't work successfully.

Running in Steam, Proton 6.3-6

Does anyone have any solutions?

Games stored on alternate drive won't launch.

I find this issue a curious one.

Title pretty much sums it up. I have a 2TB hard drive that I keep the bulk of my installed games on. But strangely enough it doesn't launch about 90% of the games installed on the drive. But it does launch SOME games, i.e. American Truck Simulator, Bastion, Battleblock Theater and Dead Island.

But the rest of them, you click play, it prepares to launch, then just stops.

I found this link on steam that suggested by deleting everything in the steam folder (excluding steamapps) that it would solve the issue; some responses say just deleting the config file was sufficient. But this did not resolve the issue.

Oddly enough, if I move the installation folder of a game that isn't working, to my SSD main drive, it launches just fine.

The steam library recognizes that the games are installed; but simply fails to launch most games.

Anyone more tech savvy got any suggestions?

Very impressed with Steam/Proton so far - Fallout 4 especially

I assume most people who have played Fallout 4 have experienced the same drops in performance in specific parts of the game as I have, notably the Corvega plant. On Windows my PC would drop from a pretty solid and locked 95 fps in most places to under 30 fps at times when looking at this area.

I have just started to play around with Linux and Proton and after a minor tweak to get the music working in Fallout 4 I have to say I am very impressed, since the performance dips have gone, I not get 95 fps around Corvega and consistently better performance everywhere.

I assume this is a result of Vulkan being more efficient in general, even with the overhead of Wine/Proton.

Anyway, apologies if this was a well known thing, I couldn't find much discussion with a quick search.

Help me choosing a gaming/browsing distro

Hello, I came from Manjaro and after few updates that broke my system, I decided to find a more stable distro for gaming (like Minecraft) and browsing (Netflix, Youtube, searches, etc)

I don't know what to say except I'm looking for stability like an Ubuntu-based and a really great support of NVIDIA cards like PopOS with its built-in hybrid graphics system (I could do the same on Manjaro so if there isn't this feature, I can add myself with prime-run) but I like the idea that I have the latests features too, like from a rolling-release...

Anyway. I looked for Debian and it seems like it's stable but I read it's not the best for gaming. Ubuntu is a pain in the ass with NVIDIA drivers so I prefer to avoid it.

I'm currently on PopOS and as I said before, I like system76-power but the bootloader is a bit complicated because I can't dualboot due to my small EFI partition where Windows boot manager is (100Mo) and I don't like GNOME so much. I prefer KDE Plasma

I don't know if I'm on the right subreddit and if not, I'm sorry. But I need help, please

Trainers under proton

I'm currently playing through RE7 which locks itself to 90 fov. Normally this would be acceptable but at ultrawide it is absolutely disgusting and unplayable as it gives me motion sickness. There exists an FoV trainer mod that fixes this. The game works flawlessly under proton, dare I say better than Windows, however I have not been able to get the trainer to work. I'm using ProtonPreloader to launch the trainer alongside the game (I've done this many times with Flawless Widescreen), but none of the hotkeys work. I suspect this is moreso to deal with how Proton/Wine/Linux deals with inputs rather than the functionality of the trainer itself not working under wine. Basically you have to press F1 for the FoV to actually apply in-game.

Does anyone have experience with trainers like this? I'd love to play games like this and the Ascent that require trainer patches to fix developers' shortcomings on Linux.

Question about Lutris

Is there a lutris build I can download that includes all the dependencies and required runtimes? I made a post before [asking about lutris](https://www.reddit.com/r/Lutris/comments/pb722t/i_cant_launch_lutris_please_help_me_btw_im_in/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3), since I'm in China at the moment, launching lutris for the first time won't download necessary runtimes. I'm asking if there's a build of Lutris that I can build myself so it will run without a problem.

Mouse gets stuck when right clicking or being captured in Grapejuice (Roblox)

Playing roblox and right clicking with the mouse makes the cursor get stuck in where-ever i right clicked, or after being brought to the middle for gun action it gets stuck there unless I alt tab.

Any way to remedy this? A few suggestions or perhaps some kind of python script that can unfocus a mouse cursor on a keybind or something?

Proton games fail to launch on external drive

I've recently moved to Linux from Windows, but haven't been able to get games to launch. I think I've narrowed it down to specifically Proton games that are launching from my external drive. I've set this drive to mount on startup, and disabled shader pre-cache since it was freezing, but games still won't launch. When I move them to my system drive, everything seems to work. Is there anything else I should try?

League of Legends on Lutris not launching DEBIAN 11

So i installed LoL on debian 11 through lutris, yes i did everything properly, but then when i launch it it goes to a login screen and then once i log in it just closes and doesn't do anything else even though on system monitor it said leagueclient was running. I couldn't find any fixes online i've tried reinstalling but it doesn't work.

Setup need more files to run

I have a setup.exe file that will install my app, but in the same place where I downloaded it, 9 more .bin files came together, and I think that the setup need them in order to install it.

When trying to install with wine setup.exe, the installation fails.

How can I give setup.exe access to that files? Thanks

Good recent guides to effective Linux gaming configuration?

I am a long-time Ubuntu Linux user and programmer, but new to gaming on Linux. I recently built a system with good specs, but I have found that many/most games in my Steam library do not run well with Proton. And by "not well", I mean <5 FPS at resolutions like 1600x900x60Hz for games such as Outer Wilds and Roguebook. I would like to diagnose and understand better why not, but I cannot find any recent guides to help me. My web searches tend to turn up articles from 2012-2013, which have led me down rabbit holes with obsolete advice a few times.

I read the "GNU/Linux Gaming" guide on the wiki here (https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/wiki/starting_guide), but it is very basic, without much detail on setting up the gaming side of Linux. I was hoping to find a guide more oriented toward gaming setup, configuration, troubleshooting, and benchmarking, covering questions like:

  1. Where should I expect to find my installed Steam games and configuration? When I first installed Steam, it was putting things into `~/.steam`, but then Steam via Lutris used `~/Games`what is the best practice here?
  2. Is it realistic to expect to be able to play Windows games via Proton on a strong system? What about if I have a more modest graphics card (mine is a GeForce GT 1030)?
  3. What else, if anything, should I do besides installing Steam and enabling Proton for all games?
    1. E.g., are 64-bit versus 32-bit drivers still a concern? Do I need to manually install 32-bit drivers on a 64-bit system? I've seen conflicting statements online about this.
    2. What about nvidia versus nv versus other kernel modules? I should be using the proprietary nvidia kernel module if I want to play games on Linux seriously, right?
    3. Do I still need to worry about installing things like Wine and DXVK myself? Or does Steam with Proton deliver effective versions of them automatically these days?
  4. I've noticed that running my desktop in 4K at 200% scale steeply harms performance of many games. Dropping my desktop resolution to 1080p makes a huge difference. Along those lines: is there a way to run Steam (e.g. in Big Picture Mode) that will just switch me to 1080p so I don't have to manually change my resolution every time I want to play games?
  5. Is the steam-login project or similar still a thing, where you can run Steam directly when logging in? Or something similar for Lutris, perhaps? Or is this unnecessary now (at least from a performance perspective)?
  6. How do people set up Steam versus Lutris for best success? Since you can add non-Steam games to the Steam interface, why would I want to set up Lutris? I do care a lot about using open software, but I also need my games to actually run with reasonable performance. When I tried Lutris, I found it very frustrating (e.g. there was a bug discovering installed Steam games: https://github.com/lutris/lutris/issues/3318), but maybe things are better now, or there is a guide I should have followed but didn't know about?
  7. How does running Steam on Linux affect compatibility of controllers? I tried to make my PS2 controllers (via USB adapter) work, without successthey were seen as joysticks by Linux, but Steam games refused to acknowledge them. I tried xboxdrv, but couldn't get it to work reliably. I had better luck with XBox 360/ONE controllers.
  8. What is the best way to set up RetroArch? Running it standalone works pretty well for me (as well as with RetroPie on a Raspberry Pi 4), but when I tried using it via Lutris, Lutris wanted me to add every single game as its own entry...

To be clear, I'm not necessarily asking for people here to respond to all of the above points directly in the thread. I'm mostly listing these questions to give you an idea of where I'm at, and the sorts of guides I'm looking for, that I haven't been able to find.

So: any suggestions to help me get myself up to speed?

Dual GPU Gaming Setup

I need help setting up a gaming VM on Manjaro KDE Plasma 5.22.4. My PC is not recognizing my second graphics card.

  • CPU: i7-9700k
  • Motherboard: MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon AC
  • RAM: 32 GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200 CL16
  • GPU 1: EVGA RTX 3080ti
  • GPU 2: EVGA RTX 2080 Super

In a terminal I get the following:

sudo lspci | grep -i nv
00:14.3 Network controller: Intel Corporation Cannon Lake PCH CNVi WiFi (rev 10)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GA102 [GeForce RTX 3080 Ti] (rev a1)
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GA102 High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1)
02:00.0 Non-Volatile memory controller: Samsung Electronics Co Ltd NVMe SSD Controller SM981/PM981/PM983
6e:00.0 Non-Volatile memory controller: Samsung Electronics Co Ltd NVMe SSD Controller SM981/PM981/PM983

sudo dmesg | grep NVRM

[ 7.525609] NVRM: loading NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module 470.63.01 Tue Aug 3 20:44:16 UTC 2021

Both cards spin when I power on my machine but then the fans stop spinning (I think due to temperature and energy savings) and never is recognized in Windows or Manjaro. I know the card works since I just bought my 3080ti. I've got it plugged into my new PSU with all new cables as well so I'm fairly certain it's not a hardware problem. Not sure what else to test here. Any help is appreciated.

Steam download games again everytime i reset my computer

Hey, i suppose someone already had this problem but i could'nt find anything. Everytime i reset my pc and go play a game on steam it says "install" so when i click it, steam starts checking the game files. When checking the files it deletes all the game folder and start downloading the game again even if the game folder already had all the files.

If this should be in Weekly Tech-Support let me know, i posted it here since i could'nt find anything related on google, thanks.

Minecraft (Java) Mod doesn't produce sound output

I wanted to play Minecraft Java edition with a mod called simple voice chat. Its a mod that adds voice chat functionality to the game.

The problem is SVC doesn't give audio output. I know audio output, for the game, works because I can hear the game sounds. I know that SVC is sending sounds, because my friends can hear me. When I check the settings menu I find that I can find my mic, but I can't find my speaker device.

I tried solving it in this github issue and found out it could be an issue with ALSA. I've found a few links (keithp.com and razorsedge.org) dealing with java audio on linux and their solution is changing the ALSA config so that java can use the speaker. I've tried changing my ALSA config to do that but it didn't work. I could see my device in the selection menu but it wouldn't produce sound output.

I feel like this issue could be solve with a proper ALSA config but I have no idea how to do that. Another solution, my friend came up with, was to send the audio stream to an external application (maybe pulseaudio somehow?).

here's my settings:

After a lot of hard work, I'm happy to finally announce the release of steamguard-cli v0.4.0! steamguard-cli takes the place of the Steam mobile app for generating 2FA codes and trade/market confirmations.

A few years ago, I released the initial version of steamguard-cli. It was originally written in C#, using the SteamAuth library. That turned out to be a massive mistake, because it was a maintenance nightmare.

Over the past few months, I've been painstakingly rewriting it in Rust, and today, I think it's finally ready for release! I've been rigorously testing compatibility with previous versions of steamguard-cli, and compatibility with SteamDesktopAuthenticator.

Some notable changes:

  • Startup time is way faster than before
  • No more external dependencies required (no more mono, nuget, etc), way easier to build!
  • Published to crates.io
  • Also works on Windows and Mac now! (probably, haven't tested)

Some cool things you can do:

  • One liner to generate a 2FA code and copy it to clipboard:

steamguard-cli | xclip -selection clipboard
  • Streamdeck button to generate and type the 2FA code directly
  • Import the 2FA secret into other applications, like google authenticator.

I'm still ironing out kinks in the release process, so if you have any problems with downloading, building, or installing, please don't hesitate to reach out and file an issue!

I'm eager to get feedback from y'all! Code reviews and pull requests are much appreciated!
