Open source graphics drivers should be easier to install than the closed source ones

If AMD and NVIDIA can make easily installable closed source drivers to support their latest graphics cards on day one, proving that graphics drivers on Linux can be that modular, the open source drivers can be made that modular and easily installable as well.

Is there any work around fixing this problem yet so that open source Mesa drivers will be available for new cards on day one?

White Boxes Behind Text

Alright, so I've searched everywhere I could think to look for answers to this problem, but I just can't seem to find one.

A lot of people have reported that they have white boxes instead of text. My problem is that there is indeed text, except there is white boxes behind it, making it nigh impossible to read lightly colored text, especially when it's white on white.

I've tried installing all the fonts, changing video drivers, giving WINE an XP theme, changing fonts, etc. Nothing has worked, yet.

Crazy thing is, I was on a different Linux distro, long ago, and never had this issue-- the program worked just fine, without any glitches.

Info: Xubuntu 18.04; GeFore GTX 1070

Any ideas?

State of AMD's 2200G (Vega 8) right now?

I am a long time Arch user.. Recently, I built myself this rig for an upgrade, and it got a Ryzen 3 2200G CPU and a Vega 8 iGPU. I have heard about the poor performance of AMD's APUs on GNU/Linux, but what I saw was over a year old.

Which Kernel version should I use in order for random freezes not to occur? Is there any Distro that can provide stability out of the box?

As for now, I consider using Pop!_OS, but I might go for Arch in case it is stable. Any help is appreciated c:

Opensuse VS Manjaro or maybe other distro for gaming ?

might be a stupid question but what do you think who runs games better Manjaro or OpenSUSE I have a lame laptop so I want the one who takes less resources i have AMD btw and all I'm gonna play is CSGO so yeah
if there is any other distro let me know my fps on windows 10 (ugh) is around 60 fps on OpenSUSE was around 80ish so IDK if Manjaro can give me more

switching GPU's directly on steam launcher?

So steam has this "set launch options" which I wonder if I can use it to select which gpu I want to use? I could go and apply it directly to the game launching file (I have gnome so it has an option called "use dedicated graphics card"), but since it's a windows exe and steam is using proton I need another solution.

It's bad if I have to do this on the steam launcher itself because then I would need to keep switching (some light games I wanna use my integrated gpu, while more heavy games I wanna use the dedicated graphics card).

Most of the tutorials online either show a windows tutorial or an intel/nvidia tutorial (nvidia even with worse drivers have better options for this case-scenario, ugh). I have an full amd laptop, with both the integrated and dedicated graphics being amd. Since amd has no control panel I presume this might take some work.

Gaming using tiling managers

How does gaming work with tiling managers like i3 or bspwm? I've been considering these, but do to the nature of how they handle windows, it seems to me that they wouldn't really behave well with full screen applications like games. Granted I haven't tried. Any1 have some experience with this?

Update from Developer of 'Path of Titans' (Dinosaur Survival game coming to Linux)

Just wanted to give a update to everyone who has been following us and helping us with Linux Support for our game.

We have had a number of companies push back against supporting Linux including a incident with Vivox earlier this year. Regardless we continue to support it regardless of the cost because we believe in cross platform multiplayer and players being able to use whatever platform or operating system works best for them!

We have spent thousands of hours working with Epic Games to fix a number of bugs in the Vulkan and Shared Library Implementation of UE4 as lots of bugs go unnoticed in the engine because Fortnite does not support Linux.

We are currently undergoing a crowdfunding with our community but this post isn't a recommendation to back it as heaps of Linux Gamers have been burned by crowdfunding in the past with poorly made games or ports. I ask that you make your own judgement call if you would like to support us!

We also have a downloadable Launcher as snap and app image if you are interested in testing it. We don't want to launch on the Epic Games Store due to their serious lack of linux, modding support etc and we are avoiding steam so we can have more control over our game and earn more revenue to do charity drives. (Such as donating a large % of the game to charity for all copies sold)

For more information and or a better summary please checkout the article posted by Gaming on Linux:

Thanks for the support Everyone! <3

Tired of Windows Crap. Want to change to Linux.

I have used different flavor of Linux Before (Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Mint.) Never for gaming but low end laptops for performance. I miss Linux and getting tired of the little annoyance of Windows.

but I have recently known that Gaming of Linux have improved a lot so I decided to bite the bullet and switch. Willing to try a new Flavor too. So which Distro/Flavor you Lads would recommend for me?

How to run 32-bit Wine programs on 64 bit install?

I'm trying to get the Q4Wine program running on Linux Mint, but I'm having trouble getting the right Wine version to work. The only way Q4Wine works is if the command-line Wine works - I need to use sudo apt-get install wine-development in order for Wine to be set up properly. Then I can type wine 'winprogram.exe' to run programs and Q4Wine recognizes the install. The problem is that this gives me a 64 bit install and I can't run 32-bit programs, even though I already have the 32-bit architecture downloaded. Also, running sudo apt-get remove --autoremove wine* does not completely uninstall all wine-related packages - what gives? This method only uninstalls the packages installed by apt install wine-development and ignores all other wine packages such as the i386 distributables. How can I completely purge my system of Wine components so I can start fresh?

Is anyone successfully running Vulkan on Navi right now?

I don't know of any place on the Internet where I could maybe get an answer other than here. This might be tech support; but I haven't been able to find any reports of this working properly anywhere on the internet. This should all be generally interesting information to a lot of people, I think.

I picked up a 5700 XT card a few days ago and I've spent days trying to get a really annoying bug to go away.

I been compiling and trying the latest git versions of LLVM, Mesa and AMD's drm-next kernel branch,and everything I've tried with the video card works pretty much flawlessly (except for the kernel driver lacking fan control support, not having an interface for freq/voltage editing, and hanging the SMC if multiple programs try to read sensors at the same time). OpenGL games work great and even Vulkan games seem to run extremely well except for one big problem:

The moment any Vulkan program renders anything using RADV (even vkcube), my entire desktop corrupts itself and anything transparent gets rendered as solid rectangles (thus rendering most games unplayable). This requires a reboot of the system to fix.

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/226922581612167169/599418403224158218/2019-07-13_11-24-34.png (the game seems to run completely fine and performant behind the coating of green giga-pixels which I assume are supposed to be alpha'd out normally)

And my browser, for example, will now look like this: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/538731978556440586/599420418264268800/2019-07-13_11-32-28.png

It seems like something so trivial and simple is going wrong and leaving the card in an invalid state, but I am too brainlet to even know how to start step-through debugging vulkan commands; so I'm just curious if anyone has gotten Vulkan on Navi working correctly at all, so I could try to replicate a working setup.

The source-code release of AMDVLK with Navi support happened in the last 24 hours and I attempted to build that. No success getting it to load, though (I assume I need the rest of the AMD GPUOpen driver stack to make it work).

My next step is probably going to be an Ubuntu 18.04 install and trying to use the binary release from https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-amdgpu-unified-navi-linux. I'm not sure if the AMDVLK release from yesterday forms part of that, though; and it doesn't look like there's any new package here yet: http://repo.radeon.com/amdvlk/apt/debian/pool/main/a/amdvlk/

Xbox One S Controller via Bluetooth + Running WINE Under a Separate User Account

Alright gents, this took me longer than it should have to work out, so I'll put this here in case anyone else has the kind of OCD which requires a squeaky clean home folder. This is a guide to make your Xbox One S / Xbox One X wireless gamepad work with a separate user's account, which is useful for security and aesthetics. This guide is aimed at Arch, and I didn't take the time to see whether there are idiosyncratic differences between Arch and (insert your distro here) before making this guide. See relevant man pages for help before commenting for help.

Basically WINE, Steam, and Lutris all put a ton of folders in your user's home folder, and I'd rather not look at them. Additionally, I don't really want anything that's running under WINE to have access to my home folder, so it makes sense to make an unprivileged user (by the name of wineuser in this case) to run these things through. This keeps my home folder safe from clutter and inspection.

To see how to set this up, follow the steps here. That is a requirement for the rest of this guide. In your $PATH, set /usr/local/bin to be before /bin if it's not already, and you can drop the some scripts in /usr/local/bin/ by the names Steam and Lutris. See the runaswine script in that section of the wiki. Basically we're going to do that, but instead of running "$@" (which means whatever you type) through wine, we're going to make launchers for Steam and Lutris.


xhost +SI:localuser:wineuser

sudo -u wineuser env HOME=/home/wineuser USER=wineuser USERNAME=wineuser LOGNAME=wineuser /bin/steam

You have to give it the absolute path like that (/bin/steam) for the actual executable so it doesn't just try to run the same script you're trying to launch steam with instead, since /usr/local/bin is global. Let's do the same for Lutris.


xhost +SI:localuser:wineuser

sudo -u wineuser env HOME=/home/wineuser USER=wineuser USERNAME=wineuser LOGNAME=wineuser /bin/lutris

Make them both executable with:

# chmod +x /usr/local/bin/lutris /usr/local/bin/steam

This is awesome. Now we can use dmenu, rofi, or terminal and simply type steam or lutris and it will automatically launch under the correct user. If you're using gnome, or otherwise launching these apps graphically instead of through a(n) fzf-like launcher, click here to learn about .desktop files and where to find them, what to do with them to achieve launching /usr/local/bin/ versions of the executables instead of the /bin/ versions.

Don't forget to follow the "WINE as a separate user" all the way through, you'll want to edit your sudoers file to prevent having to type your password when changing to the user wineuser for this to be seamless.

Once you're done there, get your bluetooth Xbox One S / Xbox One X controller connected. Here's a video guide for Ubuntu, and here's an Arch wiki entry for Archers. Great. Now we have games, and we have a wireless controller. Now why tf doesn't the controller work on the games, when stuff like keyboard and mouse will? The secret lies in udev rules.

Udev is a device manager for the Linux kernel. It does things like adds USB drives to /dev/ when you plug them in, and loads kernel modules for devices that need it when they get plugged in. It also handles permissions for devices, and we can tell it to give ownership of the Xbox controller to wineuser from now on via udev rules.

Go ahead and cd into /etc/udev/rules.d/ and pop open bluetoothctl. Get the controller's mac address by typing 'devices' (this assumes your controller has been paired before). Type exit to leave bluetoothctl, we're done with it. Anything in this /etc/udev/rules.d/ directory will need to have the extension .rules or it will be ignored. We're going to make a rule. Mine is named 50-xbox.rules. We have to tell udev what it's looking for, and we have to tell it what to do with that info. It uses "==" for comparisons, and it uses "=" to assign values. Let's say bluetoothctl told you your controller's mac address was 11:22:33:44:55:66. This is what our rule should look like.


ATTRS{uniq}=="11:22:33:44:55:66", OWNER="wineuser", MODE="0660"

If we wanted to expand it to also include rules for when our controller is plugged in via USB, it might save us some grief when our battery dies, so let's go ahead and do that now. Plug in your controller via USB and check the output of lsusb. You should see something like Bus 001 Device 005: 045e:02ea Microsoft Corp. Xbox One S Controller. The first number, 045e for me, is the vendor ID. The second number, 02ea, is my product ID. By the way, you can learn how to format the udev rules with strings like mine with some quick research on the command 'udevadm'. For now, copying my rule with your device-specific info is sufficient.

Add this line to the rule, adjusting the values based on your lsusb output:

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="045e", ATTRS{idProduct}=="02ea", OWNER="wineuser", MODE="0660"

You should be good to go. Launch steam and hit the xbox button on your controller to test. If big picture opens, you're golden. Unplug and connect via bluetooth. You can test in the same way with big picture. If it's not working you can manually reload udev rules via sudo udevadm control --reload.

Last thing, I personally deleted my games from my home folder and re-downloaded them under the other user's account, but it's probably possible to move your library to their user folder as root, then give them ownership of those files with a recursive chown command.

Keep those home folders clean my dudes. Happy linux_gaming!

CS:GO + Redshift

I'm sure I've found the issue, but has anyone else played CS:GO with Redshift enabled?

I'm on a fairly modest machine, but my FPS in online matches WAS horribly low even considering that. I disabled Redshift and it seems my FPS is now at a normal/playable level.

I'm just wondering if there is some issue with OpenGL + Redshift or if anyone else has seen this sort of behavior previously?

Im considering linux gaming, is lutris a good option?

I'm considering making the switch to linux for gaming and stuff when I eventually put together a new pc. However I've recently started using GOG more often on my windows laptop. I've messed around in ubuntu studio and mint on an older computer and although I really like ubuntu, I've had quite a deal of trouble getting GOG to work consistently on it, and it doesn't look like its getting native support any time soon. I stumbled across a video of someone talking about Lutris, which seems to make a lot of the complication easier based on what they had shown. I was just wondering what the broader linux community thought of this particular program and ask for any advice for future linux ventures.

STALKER Anomaly: no light from flashlight


I tried my luck on the STALKER reddit but didn't get much there.

I had this game working perfectly last year, wanted to give it another go, so I started it (I hadn't uninstalled it) and created a new character. I have the flashlight, I have put it in the detector spot and I press O, I have the sound of the flashlight turning on put no light... What did I forget? The flashlight doesn't need batteries, right?(I have the Universal Charger anyway).

This is on Fedora 30, Nvidia GTX980M, proprietary drivers 430.34; Anomaly is version 1.4.0, and wine is 4.11 staging. I have overridden d3dx9_31, 36, 41, 43 and d3dcompiler_43 and 47. Trying with d9vk didn't give anything (said my video card didn't meet the requirements...)

Thanks for any hint!

holding down shift/ctrl/alt does not repeat keypresses

Hi there, i hope this isn't a duplicate of an older post here, but i couldn't find anything related to this.

Also sorry if this isn't the appropriate subreddit for this.

I'm using Debian 9 with wine 4.0.2. When holding down shift/ctrl/alt on the keyboard in installed games, it only registers as one press, even though other keys repeat the press as usual. Is this a known issue with a workaround, or something that has been since fixed in a newer version of wine?

Crackling audio playing skyrim on macos

Hey guys,

so I downloaded the Skyrim wrapper from Portingkit. I've used Portingteam's wrapper before, but it seems to be down. Anyways, I installed the game, everything seemed fine and then I realised that the sound is crackling and popping already from the main menu (right after the Bethesda logo). I am not running wine via terminal and I don't have Pulse Audio. I have set my Audio MIDI settings to run at 24bit 48Khz (really thought it would work, as it did sound like an audio format issue) and it's not helping. There was a thread on this about 10 months ago here, but it didn't address what to do if setting audio midi to the right format doesn't work.

About my Mac:

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports)

I made a lightweight ubuntu distro for windows users

As recent project of mine I've been developing a linux distribution with a familiar UI for windows users. I've gotten feedback saying it has a very low cpu and RAM footprint.


I figured I would mention it here, as I think it could be a good distribution for linux gamers, especially those with low-end machines or who are coming from windows.

You can get an ISO from SourceForge: https://sourceforge.net/projects/bluebuntu/

The release history and more information is available on my website. https://louisrosenblum.com/bluebuntu

Let me know if you have any questions or feedback.

Steam in-home streaming from Ubuntu 18.04 to Windows


I've been trying to stream Ubuntu desktop using steam stream play. However, I'm running to constant issues. When I try to connect using my Windows 10 computer, 19 out of 20 times I get "Could not connect to remote computer'. When using Steam link I connect to the computer without any problems. The thing is that 1 time that it works is confusing me. That would point that network or firewall should not be the problem.

Just wanted to know if anyone else is experiencing the same problems and if maybe someone has found solution.

Also I'm open to other real-time streaming solutions like parsec.

PSA: The mouse polling rate issue in Wine might not be totally fixed.

As some of you might remember from around when Proton first launched, a long-standing Wine bug got traction. The bug caused erratic mouse behavior when the polling rate was set too high, leading to the mouse panning from one side of the screen to the other, or incredibly stuttery movement. The bug was promptly fixed and everyone forgot about it.

...Except it seems it wasn't fixed. In the recent thread discussing Proton and the evolution in game compatibility, an argument was brought about regarding the accuracy of ProtonDB ratings, with one of the games put forth as an argument being Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (rated Gold in spite of multiple reports of severe mouse issues in the game's map screen). I quickly set about testing the game for myself to see if I could nail down the problem and help the contribute to a more accurate rating on ProtonDB.

Upon launching the game and opening the map I noticed a very erratic pattern, almost like the mouse was being forced into a certain position. Toggling between the game's "Fullscreen" and "Borderless Fullscreen" options expectedly did nothing. Disabling the "Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows" option in the graphics tab of winecfg partially fixed this, but then I'd lose all mouse control on the map screen. Emulating a virtual desktop the same resolution as my real monitor helped quite a bit, making the pattern erratic but somewhat controllable. However, when I switched to my mouse's "Wine" profile (created specifically because of the polling rate bug, with the polling rate set to 125Hz) the problem was gone almost in its entirety. It was still a little bit jumpy, but considerably less so.

It's probably too early to tell whether this bug is indeed the same bug as last time, but I'd like to see this post as a call to arms. We're going to need a lot more samples on different setups to confirm whether or not I'm on the right path. So, if you've got a game with weird mouse issues in some kind of edge case, please test your game with your polling rate set to 125Hz and let everyone know if that fixed it or at least alleviated the problem. If you need information about how to set your polling rate in Linux, you should generally be able to follow this Arch Wiki article.

TL;DR: If you're having mouse issues in Wine/Proton games, try setting your polling rate to 125Hz and see if that alleviates it.

Upgraded to a ryzen 5 3600, now some wine games will no longer work.

So I have a couple of cracked games that used to work using wine but stopped working when I upgraded my CPU/motherboard. In some of the games the lutris logs said that stack smashing was detected, while in other games it comes up 2irh an error "unhandeled exception: page fault on r3qd access to 0xffffffffffffff in 64bit code (0x0000001444d26053)." I tried using multiple versions of wine from staging 3.21 up until 4.10. I did get the games to work again by installing my linux hard drive into my dad's computer. So it is likely a hardware related bug, but I have no clue what is causing it, nor do I know how to fix it.

So far I haven't had any new problems with legitament games/software on wine. Nor have I has any issues with proton or native games.

I have a ryzen 3600, Asus TUF b450 motherboard, nvidia 1060 (430.26), and linux mint 19.1 using kernel 5.0.

I'm a 100% Linux Twitch streamer, and I might have to run a windows partition for the dumbest reason...

I started streaming on Twitch about a month ago, here's my channel, a follow is always appreciated.. I use Linux full time, and I found that with what Steam is doing and other wine type services, I could fully get away with only playing games that work completely on Linux.

Great, being a Linux gamer on Steam is a great way to get noticed, I don't have to boot into Windows all the time. Good stuff. BUT...

Being a new streamer I don't get a lot of views, so I thought I would try to make some content that I can use to promote the channel. So I created a podcast, on Twitch called Small Streamers Connect where I interview OTHER small streamers and talk about Life, Streaming, Gaming, the Future... etc.. (Always looking for new guests!)

As you can see success has been, pretty much all over the place.

Part of the issue is it needs a certain professional look to really attract more viewers, cool, I'm a developer, I can learn anything lets do this!

Here is the problem.
If you stream you know the program used to stream is OBS, Open Broadcast Software, its great, its open source, it's the industry standard. Works perfectly on Linux. However when I conduct an interview I need a video chat program, that displays my face and the other persons face, side by side, or in a tiled view.

The BEST option, is if that Video Chat software has the ability to stream into OBS.
That way I can fully make my own graphical Interface around the incoming windows, transitions, etc.. everything OBS can do, with the video chat full integrated. (Webcam only works on one application at a time)

Awesome, I wanna do that.
The technology that can do that is called NDI, it's ALSO open source.

BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT, the ONLY video chat program I have found that uses NDI or something like it, is Skype. Well, good for Skype right? So use Skype?

Nope, Skype for Linux is just Skype for web with an electron wrapper, it doesn't have the NDI option.

So now I feel stupid, OBS is open source, it's even written in Python. NDI is open source, but there seems to be nothing else out there to bind those two together, at least not in a manner that I have managed to figure out.

At some point i'm going to want those podcasts to look better. And it seems the only way to do it is to go back to dual-booting Windows 10. :sadface:

Unless someone knows of some alternative that I have not found?

GOG Installer for Furi Cannot Find .exe

I posted this on the Lutris forums a couple days ago and haven't heard anything yet, so reaching out here too. If anyone knows of a workaround in Lutris, that would be great, but also if anyone can point me to any resources for installing GOG games outside of Lutris that would be great too.

I recently bought Furi from GOG, and am trying to install it using the Lutris script titled 1.4.95 (GOG). However, I get an error at the end of the install saying that the executable could not be found. Ive included more details below, but any help people could give me would be much appreciated!

Anyways, the process Ive gone through is to download the setup .exe and .bin files that GOG provides. Then, when I run the installer it asks where I want the game installed, and I point it to my Games directory. After that, it downloads a wine staging .tar.gz file, then it gives me a prompt to Select the games setup file. Ive tried pointing this prompt to both the .exe and the .bin I downloaded from GOG, but both lead to the same error. The installer goes to the normal install screen, which stays up for a few seconds before it goes to a screen with check boxes for creating desktop/app menu shortcuts. At the top of this screen, it says The executable at path /home/thomas/Games/furi/prefix/drive_c/game/Furi.exe cant be found, please check the destination folder.
Some parts of the installation process may have not completed successfully. From there, Lutris seems to think the game is installed but if I try and launch the game I get a similar error about not finding Furi.exe.

Again, any pointers/ideas you have would be awesome. Thanks!

Serious Sam VR issues

Hello guys, i have this issue with SSVR where my pc get's completely frozen after i launch it (reported here https://steamcommunity.com/app/552450/discussions/1/1648792158823582585/) and I'd like to ask fellow linux gamers if anyone has tried to run it on linux at all? I use arch (used to be antergos, but i think there is not much antergos-specific stuff left), but i've tried it on ubuntu as well and the result was more or less the same so the question stands. I'm a bit angry about it to be honest, since i started that thread in May, I still can't play any of the "serious" games in VR and it doesn't look like this issue is of any priority to the dev team. My main goal here is to understand whether i've paid money for the game that doesn't work on any linux pc or just mine. Any input is greatly appreciated, cheers!

BF3 runs in black screen ubuntu 19.04

Hi. I installed bf3 through lutris and set everything up. However, when I connect to a server, a game launches but its black screen. Nothing helps and either I have to close it or it closes on its own. Im using ge4.10.protinified version and dxvk 1.2.3.

I can run it because it worked on windows. Other games like bf1, bf4, warframe and gta 5 work well on ubuntu.

I have a laptop with core i3 4000m, amd r7 m265 and 8gb ram.

Practical CPU stress test


I'm looking for a practical way to test the stability of my CPU, mostly my new cooling system. I could run mprime (and do often for other purposes) or alike, but I'm not too interested in those unlikely scenarios, for instance nothing I actually use has come close to mprime in driving the temperature so high so it's a bit meaningless...

What game, console emulator, video encoder or such would you recommend for that purpose?

Thank you!

Running Slightly Old Games/ Backwards Compatibility Issues.

How do you guys manage to actually keep your game libraries running? From what I can tell if a game was released natively for Linux in 2016 for Ubuntu 16 or something with old libraries it won't run without tons of effort.

As far as I can tell right now gaming on Linux doesn't make a lot of sense if I can't run slightly old games easily.

Please convince me not to go back to Windows/ tell me how/why I'm wrong.

Ok, so my last post was me saying I was going to give this Linux stuff a whirl, and It's taken me all day to get up to this point. Hello from the new computer! =)

Running Ryzen 5 3600, X570 board and a RX 5700.

I can't even figure out how to install anything, getting the USB to install Manjaro was write off, gave up. tried to make a windows USB , failed at that, then tried Ubuntu and managed to get into the OS. Woo-hoo! I was hoping to be playing rust by this time at night, but hey ho =)

It's working at least!

Havin' fun, will figure this all out soon enough I am sure.

Thinking of giving linux gaming another try

I am thinking of giving linux gaming another try. This time I am thinking of going with Arch instead of Ubuntu. Although I don't have a spare computer to read the installation guide off of, I do I have the ArchWiki Viewer app on my phone (from F-Droid).

I plan on dual-booting again because I know for sure that certain games I play simply won't run under WINE. Then on top of that some games I have to play on Windows in order to play them with mods.

So what's the point then? Well maybe I'm crazy, but gaming performance almost seemed to drop for me after an intel microcode update was installed and I hope that for the games I know I an run on Linux will perform better (even despite some of them using aweful DX to openGL translation). Also hope that I can have settings for atleast some of my software synced between Windows and Linux.

Why Arch? Well I want to take advantage of the newer packages in the base system (compared to Ubuntu) and while Manjaro is generally recommended to even average users, there is a whole page documenting issues with that distro and I think I would be better off going for straight Arch. I might also have another distro installed as a back up in case something goes wrong on Arch.

As for my partitioning set up, here is the plan

(This is on a 480GB SSD, my 1TB HDD drive is filled to the brim and can't really be used for running games off of for that reason)

Partition 1: Windows (roughly 240GB/480GB)(I already merged system reserved into this partition)

Partition 2: /home (roughly 224GB/480GB)

Partition 3: / (roughly 16GB/480GB)

(If Arch doesn't support Swap files then I will need a separate partition for that. not sure what size swap should be)

I also am using an nvidia graphics card and I'm limited to Wifi on my pc so if I need additional pages from the wiki that aren't linked in the guide, please let me know. If this kind of post doesn't belong here, I apologize ahead of time.

Microsoft putting patent traps inside linux


Not strictly gaming related, but windows gaming on linux relies heavily on some of the stuff they are trying to sue over. So to all the idiots who bought the whole "MicRoSofT lOveS LiNuX" shit hook, line, sinker, rod, reel, and fishermans cock, good job dumbasses.

EMBRACE: Microshit loves linux

EXTEND: Linux runs inside windows (how god damn stupid, let's run the better OS inside the shitty one)

EXTINGUISH: Suing companies over stuff made to mimmick windows, which will destroy the ability to run windows programs on linux - which directly affects wine and proton, as well as any projects branching off them.

MS just got added to my do not pirate list. I wont even give them the satisfaction of knowing i want their shit, on top of not giving them my money. I was really looking forward to MCC on pc but I'll not support any company that tries to fuck up linux.

Microsoft is the same exact powerhungry piece of shit they've always been. Every idiot who actually thought they "loved" a free competitor should be slapped with a steel toe boot. So once again, to all the assholes that gave Microsoft power in this arena by supporting the whole windows+linux lure, fuck you.

Build new machine or change GPU

I built a windows 8 machine a while ago. I recently decided to add another ssd for a dual boot with ubuntu 18.04. My main focus for ubuntu is programming python/vscode, not gaming. I have issues with my gpu + ubuntu 18.04, I tried everything my modest linux skills would allow me, including all variations of "nomodeset/grub" stuff. I tried to make my gpu work with ubuntu for too long, my linux skills are not enough, my few hours of digging suggested I was not alone and that there might be no solution for my specific HW.

I am done weeping.

Should I built another machine for linux and buy some switch for keyboard/mouse/screens or change my gpu? Changing the gpu might be cheaper and simpler but I am lost as to what to look for and previous experience proved I was not skilled enough to get gpu working with linux. I need a gpu with similar or better performance for windows gaming (hdmi+dvi or 2xhdmi) + won't give me headaches on ubuntu 18.04 + max 200$ cnd.

Please Obiwan Kenobi. You are not my only hope but I would appreciate a hand.

HyperX alloy core RGB: It is compatible with Linux?

So, in the Venn diagram of things I look in a keyboard, the aforementioned keyboard is the one in the center (cheap but not too shabby, backlight, in stock on my stores, latinamerican layout), but I'm afraid that It may need a windows-only software to run some things. The website says nothing about needing some sort of software suite, and I know that is usal that cheap keyboards does not come with that kind of stuff and rely on simple onboard chips and some ky combinations/buttons. But in the other hand the page only lists windows as compatible, not even mentioning mac.

Does anyone around here has some experience with it or by chance has it /uses it?

Any meaningful differences from the default/vanilla kernel to Liquorix while gaming?

As title says. I've been trying the Liquorix kernel lately with the latest games and the differences between Liquorix and the "vanilla" kernel doesn't seem that much of a big deal...

...other than the less 50 mb usage of ram, that is.

Am I supposed to do something with the Liquorix kernel to (fully) take advantage of its benefits or is it really just a "placebo" kernel?

Stuttering in Heroes of the Storm

I've been interested in giving Linux gaming a whirl for a while now and finally took the plunge. I'm trying to get Heroes of the Storm to work using this Lutris install script. It uses I have DXVK & Esync enabled, using Wine ge-protonified-nofshack-4.9.

I've set all of my graphics settings to the lowest they can go. Although the FPS is quite high, I get an insane amount of stuttering that makes it unplayable. When looking at the frametime graph I see significant spikes on a frequent basis.

I think it might have something to do with shader caching, but even after playing several games it doesn't seem to be improving. Any ideas?

New user, new build AMD, hello! =D

Hello, I have decided to make the jump to Linux with my most recent purchase, a new gaming PC. I have been an AMD fan for quite some time and with the launch of their 3rd gen processors and Navi cards I was also spurred to change up my OS - thought I should drop by here and ask for any tips starting out. I remember back 10 years ago having a play aground with Linux but at the time gaming was a struggle and all my friends had Winblows so jacked it in fairly quickly. Thankfully as I understand it this is not the case as much so more! I think I've picked a distro, was thinking manjaro but that is still up in the air at this time =)

And for the components, as everyone loves a good bit of dickwaving and it would be interesting is anyone would know of compatibility issues I might have, I assume I may have some as the CPU, GPU and motherboard only came out in the last few days:

Ryzen 5 3600 AM4 CPU, MSI Radeon RX 5700 GPU, MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS motherboard, G.Skill Trident Z 16GB 3200 Mhz, 960G SSDNOW A1000 M.2 2280 NVMe , 240G SSDNOW A1000 M.2 2280 NVMe, EG 27" QHD 144hz 1ms Gaming Monitor.

Anyway, good to be here, and let's see if I can avoid windows on the new system =D

Using Renderdoc with Launchers

I have having trouble getting a renderdoc capture for an Epic exclusive title: The

Sinking City. But the difficulties would apply to other Launchers, e.g., Uplay.

There are two ways to work this suite. First, you fill out the fields: Executable

Path, Working Directory, Command-line Arguments, and Finally Environment Variables.

Second, you attach to an already running process. That only works if you can attach

before your vulkan instance is created.

One big problem I have is isolating the main game binary from its DRM. I tried the

first approach only to be told be the game that Epic needed to be run and logged in.

I was but the game couldn't see it. I'm not sure what to do here.

RVGL (ReVolt) Tab key

I am using the latest version which could be found here: https://re-volt.io/downloads/game

The game does have a native version which I intend to play primarily on, but if compatibility issues arise, I would like to have a way to play with my friends that run Windows.

When people are gathered in the lobby, the Tab key is used to start the server, but the Windows version on Wine does nothing when tab is pressed. Does anyone have any tips on making this work?

Its not a real issue since there is a native version, but if there is a simple fix, I would like to know how it works. It might help with any other games that experience similar issues.

Issues with Discord client?

I've recently started having issues with the native Discord client locking up. seems the UI gets stuck but the voice channel will still work fine for a while and eventually will lock up for a short while as well. The voice channel will eventually come back but the UI stays locked up until the app is force killed and restarted. It doesnt take long for it to lock up (usually shortly after minimizing or switching to another window).

I tried to kill .config/discord and re-launch

I tried to run, apt purge discord, apt autoremove, apt clean

reinstalled the .deb from the discord website and im still having the same issue.

Ubuntu 18.10x64

Intel i5-2400

nvidia 770

8gb ram

actually I had just updated my kernel to 5.1.16. has any one had any issues with discord on newer kernels?

Dark Souls 2 Keyboard/Mouse Workaround Script

So I recently finished Dark Souls REMASTERED and figured I'd play Dark Souls 2. I play using keyboard and mouse instead of the controller; it just feels better to me. Well I quickly found out just how bad the input handling is!. I did some searching only to find workarounds for Windows using AutoHotKey. Ended up hacking together this little script to fix the mouse click latency and a minor QoL adjustment by making Q and E similar to how the remaster is done. It does require sudo to read the mouse input but this is good enough for me.

Key Bindings: https://imgur.com/a/eMIrLBE
Script: https://gist.github.com/kantlivelong/198bd0792579976dd90b7ce268c5acb0

When running you can press F1 to PAUSE/UNPAUSE the script and F4 to exit.

Hopefully this helps someone else out there.

Switching from Ubuntu to Debian and Debian still has a broken kernel?

I wanted to try Debian due to Ubuntu dropping 32 bit libraries. But then I noticed that Debian 10 is still using linux kernel 4.19.37-5 which can't connect to steam https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/6326

Is Debian really a serious alternative? It has been almost a month since this broken kernel was released and I need to downgrade or compile my own kernel to get it to work??

Has Ubuntu changed their mind about 32 bit support?

CD-ROM Not Found With Torrented Game in Crossover

Hey guys! I'm pretty new to using Wine and not much of a gamer so apologies for any basic errors/mistakes.

One of my favorite games as a kid was the Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets PC game, and I suddenly had an urge to play it again. However, my old copy of it was lost and my Mac doesn't have a CD drive, so I can't buy one off eBay or anything like that. I torrented a cracked ISO of the Windows version and tried running it using both Wineskin and Crossover. While it installed fine, with both Crossover and Wineskin I get the 'Please insert the correct CD-ROM' error when I try to run the game. The torrent readme said to copy the crack from the ISO into the game folder (I assume this means the drive_c folder), which I did, but that doesn't work either.

Anyone encountered a similar issue and know how to fix it? Alternatively, if you have recommendations for a better program/skin, that would be great too. Thanks!

Trying to run Vortex throught Lutris, instant crash at startup

Hi, so I downloaded this install script, but when I open the app, the screen goes completly blue with the program icon on the top side of the screen.

I tried all versions of the installer, but it gave me the same results, when running the install script throught lutris it innicially says that Mono doesn't seem to be installed (and it is, but after some research it seems that this is a bug with Wine iself). Also, the crash logs shows this:

[Discussion, hopefully] Linux distributions are ready for gaming, yes, but they are not ready to be the sole OS for the average gamer.

Not trying to downplay the huge advancements linux gaming has made over the course of the last year, but the previous thread regarding this topic is too full of people ignoring some very obvious issues and impediments.

I'm making the following assumptions about 'the average gamer':

  • The average gamer wants to play any AAA title which just caught his interest

  • The average gamer wants to play any indie game that's become the flavor of the month or which has gotten attention by friends/Youtube/Twitch

  • The average gamer wants to play old favorite games

  • The average (PC) gamer wants to be able to do all of these things without having to fiddle with anything beyond in-game settings

I think these are apt assumptions, but obviously up to debate.

I don't think I could honestly say that linux distributions are capable of succeeding at any of those four points. They are certainly able to meet them partially, but that's just not enough.

I personally barely play games anymore, but I've been on linux full time for over a year now. When I do play games, though, it's rare that it works out of the box, without any tweaks, without me having to do more than click buy & play.

Again, I don't want to downplay anyone's enthusiasm, but I think if you were telling an average gamer that he or she could switch to linux they'd end up disappointed and switch back very quickly. And then tell their friends about that experience.

do people here remap WASD to the Vim keys (KHJL)?

I was too used to using the Vim keys as directional keys that because I always map them to my Window Managers configs and Gnome (which I think its designed to be a keyboard focused DE). Honestly, Im soo used to the keys that Im hitting J once I open a *.text file in a conventional text editor like gedit or nano.

This has caused me think why not do it on games?. So I did. I remapped it to KHJL and got better results

Should I use Manjaro or Ubuntu if I want to game on linux?

Ubuntu has got more stable but older software whereas Manjaro's packages are newer but not that stable. Which of the two distributions is good for gaming for my system in particular (ASUS F550CC)?

If you've got a different distro to recommend then feel free to do so.

Amd driver or Mesa for RX 5700 xt?

I'm pretty new to Linux and totally new to Amd Radeon. I've read really good things about Mesa drivers' performance with Radeon, but the card was just released. Should I be using the proprietary Amd drivers, or will Mesa be ready for the new card? Also, can someone please point me to the best place/ method to get the Mesa drivers? I've read a few different articles with conflicting instructions on how/ where to get them. I'm on Linux Mint 19.1.

Switching to Linux

I'm going to try and make the switch to Linux gaming. I already have a few distros I'm going to test on my old gaming rig. I have no doubt the drivers and such will be good for that rig. However, If I finally make the switch with my main rig I want to be sure it doesn't have problems with my RTX2070 and i5 9600k. I'm also a bit curious about how Linux handles multiple DACs. Does anyone have experience with that hardware? Also a bonus question. Do you recommend dual booting windows or having a windows container in case there is software that just won't run on Linux.

5.2 kernel supports case-insensitive directories

You may have heard that the 5.2 kernel supports case-insensitive directories. I just tried it out, and it works.

Prequisites are:

  • a 5.2 or later kernel built with CONFIG_UNICODE=y
  • an ext4 filesystem created with "-E encoding=utf8"

Well, actually, encoding can be set to any valid value; it just needs to be there at all. The right value for most people is probably utf8 though.

Then, with the kernel loaded and that fileystem mounted, you just create an empty directory and make it case-insensitive:

mkdir drive_c
chattr +F drive_c

Presto: drive_c/ is now case insenstitive. Yes, it's recursive; any directory under drive_c is also case-insensitive.

This should be extremely helpful to players of games whose mods expect a case-insensitive filesystem: Quake, Balder's Gate, etc.

Civilization 5 DXVK/DX11

I'm trying to run Civ5 via Wine (Lutris), with DX11 and DXVK enabled in Lutris. Also using Wine Steam runner with wine version 3.21-x86_64.

I'm on a 2012 laptop (Mint Tessa) with hybrid Intel/AMD cards (HD4000 and Radeon 7650M, respectively). With DX9, I'm not able to select AA and GPU texture decode in the video options. Although the Intel card handles it well and I can play just fine, it's a waste of a dedicated video card.

When I select the DX11 launcher option in the game and enable DXVK in Lutris, the game goes normally until the start speeching. I can select AA 4x and 8x (but not 2x), and put everything in High and enable the GPU texture decode....but the game crashes to desktop in the middle of the speech.

Does anybody knows what is the problem here? Video driver, wrong settings somewhere...? Is this even feasible?

Reminder: Undervolt and custom fan curve for AMD users with reference RX Vega 56/64 GPU

For anyone out there with a reference Vega 56/64, be sure to grab a program like radeon-profile or similar to setup an undervolt profile, and a custom fan curve because the default curve is atrocious. I haven't experimented with undervolting yet, I'm curious to see what everyone else is setting their power states at, because these things run hot.

We're talking idle temperatures of 65-70 degrees Celsius pushing 80+ degrees under load because the blower is only spinning up to maybe 20% speed which is ridiculous.

Of course, this is in my personal experience with a Sapphire reference Vega 64 card. But if anyone else has one of these and hasn't looked into doing it, you totally should. yo

Thought this might be helpful, cheers!

Help - Lutris/Steam from scratch

Just got a laptop from system 76 (Darter Pro = awesome) and I'm trying to understand how Lutris works and how to get some non-native games going.

So, I download Lutris, open the application, then what? Do I treat this as a windows installation process? - install steam through Lutris(as if it were a windows environment), install Windows native games on Lutris(windows) Steam, play the game? Or do I download and install games on Linux steam and then Lutris installs scripts to make them run? How the hell does Lutris even know I own a particular game before allowing me to download it?

I'm so confused.

Vega 64 performance

I changed for linux last October and so far I've loved it!

I used to have a GTX1070 and a i7-6700k with 16Gb of RAM running Archlinux but I recently bought a Vega 64.

I have installed the AMDGPU drivers.

Problem is I don't see any increase in performance in any game. I play CSGO with ~250fps with everything maxed out at 1080p and witcher 3 at 60fps also at 1080p.

This is about the same performance I used to have.

My question is: how can I make sure if everything is installed correctly? Is this the kind of performance that would be expected?

Morrowind on LXDE or Gnome: Ubuntu v Lubuntu

Searched around for a couple hours to find more information on this, but I came up with an overall conflicting takeaway.

The main source I'm going from is a benchmark that was done with a multitude of different distros and flavors. The test used quite a few different games. Some games came out ahead with Gnome/Ubuntu, while other titles reigned with LXDE/Lubuntu. The only game I'm particularly concerned with is Morrowind. Does anyone have any experience with this specific area of Linux gaming? I'd switch from one or the other over even a few FPS increase.

Compiling shaders...why?

I've been curious for a while, why do shaders need to be compiled when playing under Wine/DXVK?

It's in the documentation that for Overwatch at least is that it will take around 30 minutes to compile shaders, until then, gameplay will be laggy. Sometimes the shaders will be done compiling, then a few hours/days later it will compile again.

Why do shaders need to be compiled? AFAIK I don't have this performance penalty under Windows. Does linux do something different?

Note: I've install dotnet40, dotnet 4.74, vcrun2015 x64 and x84, did "winetricks -q directx9", I've also configured a bit with the setting.txt: changing resolution, switching to windowed taking the borderless option off but nothing works.

Apex Legends is running perfectly on Linux through Wine up until landing

Just installed a fresh build of Mint 19.1 and decided to give Apex a try. I installed Origin via the Lutris install script, and then downloaded Apex from there. I actually dual boot W10, so after I started the download I paused it and copied the game files over from my Windows partition to the Wine directory. Origin found them with no issue, so I started the game and everything seemed to be golden. It was a bit choppy at first, guessing due to shader caching? I went through the tutorial with no problem, and then joined a match and everything (again) worked fine.

We all selected our characters, got shown the champions, and loaded into the dropship. I was obviously connected properly, because my squadmates were getting all of my pings on the map. After the jumpmaster launched us out of the dropship, the skydiving was working fine up until we were about to land. Then I got kicked and an error came up saying the EAC server couldn't start. I went through the same process multiple times, and everything was fine and dandy until we were about to land. So the game itself works fine on Wine. The problem is with EAC. Unfortunately, since good ol' Epic bought EAC they don't seem to be in any rush to fix it. Because if they did, Apex (and probably many other games) would work completely fine on Linux.

Vega 56 overclock issues

Hi community,

due to it's recent inclusion as humble monthly bundle headliner I gave "kingdom come deliverance" a shot. However, the game doesn't seem to work that well, so I considered overclocking which led to let's call it "unexpected" results.

For simplicity I adjusted my script to use the same clocks/voltage on all states:

I am running Solus 4.0, Kernel 5.1.14-121, Proton 4.2-9, Mesa 19.0.6 on an R7 1800x, 32GB of 3000MHz RAM, a 970 evo nvme SSD and Vega 56

This is the games average framerate in the starting area when looking into the distance. I know it's pretty demanding, but that looked wrong (it's on low graphics settings btw).

Here my set OC:

user@user-pc ~ $ cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage
0:       1550Mhz       1070mV
1:       1550Mhz       1070mV
2:       1550Mhz       1070mV
3:       1550Mhz       1070mV
4:       1550Mhz       1070mV
5:       1550Mhz       1070mV
6:       1550Mhz       1070mV
7:       1550Mhz       1070mV
0:        950Mhz        920mV
1:        950Mhz        920mV
2:        950Mhz        920mV
3:        950Mhz        920mV
SCLK:     852MHz       2400MHz
MCLK:     167MHz       1500MHz
VDDC:     800mV        1200mV

I also increased the power limit to 200W just in case:

user@user-pc ~ $ cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon1/power1_cap

However, this is what amdgpu_pm_info shows ingame:

GFX Clocks and Power:
        950 MHz (MCLK)
        417 MHz (SCLK)
        1269 MHz (PSTATE_SCLK)
        700 MHz (PSTATE_MCLK)
        1000 mV (VDDGFX)
        56.0 W (average GPU)

GPU Temperature: 52 C
GPU Load: 58 %

Correct me if I'm wrong, but as I read it it only runs on pretty low clocks (417MHz here). I didn't measure the correctness of the power it's drawing, but my case is hand warm and it usually heats up quite a bit in gaming so I think I can confirm that this is correct. CPU utilization stays at around 20% as well, no core going above 50% according to the graph plot in Solus.

Am I missing some bottleneck here? I couldn't find any known regressions that would affect it either. I also tested monster hunter world in which this doesn't seem to be an issue (stays 60fps locked with higher utilization overall) so it might be something specific (cryengine?)

Google couldn't help me, so I am looking forward for any suggestions on how to get the game from miserable performance to playable ;)

Make 1024x768 Game Fullscreen

When I played the game in Windows, it will set my resolution to 1024x768 and when I closed the game it will set my resolution back to default (1920x1080). How will one do this on Linux with Wine?

What's the best distro for Steam gaming?

Hi gamers!

I'm new to the entire Linux gaming scene, and I am considering switching to Linux. I just want the distro which has the best gaming performance. From what I've heard these are the best ones: Manjaro and Solus. I think Solus is much better because it has tweaks for Steam and such, but I am not sure. My PC isn't on the heavy-end side, so every extra frame is useful. If you know the answer to my question please let me know. Thank you in advance.

Resident Evil 7 Strangeness

Stumbled upon something quite odd today. I've been trying to get RE7 working on both Arch and Ubuntu 18.04 for a few weeks now.

I've done the required mfplat stuff (RE2 works fine), but no matter what I kept getting a crash at the intro video on RE7.

I was playing around with some debugging settings and found that setting winedebug to "warn+all" (must be warn) fixes the issue! Why on Earth would a debug verbosity setting allow a program to continue? I've been trying to trace it out, but I'm an idiot and relatively inexperienced...I just happened to notice that the debug thing fixed it.

The crash happens on any version of Proton for me, even a self-compiled version from GitHub.

It's working now, but I'm tortured by my own curiosity. Any ideas?

Any time it crashes, it asks him if he wants to recover and then shows all of this.

This isn't happening on my system, though I'm using completely different hardware (All AMD, opensource drivers, and he's on an nvidia/intel setup, with official drivers)

Is this a known issue? I've googled all over and cannot find anything on this.

Xpad kernael driver has good rumble functionality but lacks any button customisation , on the other hand xboxdrv has incomparable button mapping but rumble/vibration seems experimental or not working at all !

I tried adding the argument --force-feedback to the xboxdrv command but nothing in-game.

I think it's an old kernel problem , and xboxdrv website states force feedback has issues and was not tested enough (but working).

I think I'm doing something wrong , does anyone have information about this topic ?

Overwatch compiling shaders EVERY TIME i load.

Is this supposed to happen?

The shaders that get compiled don't seem to save so every time i load up overwatch it says "compiling shaders" and my performance takes a massive hit.

The game works flawless after they get compiled but it takes a long time and i cant really play until they compile.

If this is normal then no problem but i would think the shaders are supposed to get saved somewhere and not make me go through this every time i boot the game.

FFXIV Online on Linux

Anyone doing it? Its the main game I play anymore and I am concerned about how it performs on Linux. I have yet to install it on that partition but I don't want to waste my time if it doesn't run well.

Steam in home streaming from Ubuntu Server 18.04.2 LTS

Hi folks, I'm in the process of setting up a plex media sever on an old PC I have. I had initially installed ubuntu server (command line only), but now I'm thinking about running steam in home streaming from this device in addition to plex. Would I be able to stream from ubuntu server, or would I need reinstall with the desktop version? I'm thinking I wouldnt be able to stream video from a commandline only OS, but I havent worked much w/ this before.

Ryzen 7 3700X and Radeon RX 5700 XT on Manjaro

Is there any support yet? I see that the amdgpu release has a new version out just for these cards, but the one provided by amd is ubuntu only, and from what i can tell, this should come through mesa, which hasn't been updated since june 26. I also saw something about a lack of support for the kernel used on Manjaro from the new higher-end ryzen 3000. Has anyone gotten either of these working? I just picked them up from micro center this morning and would really like to upgrade my shitty little Ryzen 5 2400G to those behemoths asap.

What are your hidden Linux gems of the Steam sale? Linux games that are both great and incredibly cheap that everyone should have in their library?

My go to recommendations are always shatter $2.19 w/ the awesome soundtrack, Serious Sam 3: BFE (go Croteam) $3.99, Portal 1&2 bundle for less than $2, and for those with no shame and who want a great puzzle game there's HuniePop(NSFW!).

So which are your recommendations? (Preferably Linux native)

D9VK using proton?

Trying to play Fable Anniversary and there's some graphical glitches on it and people are saying on ProtonDB that a fork of DXVK fixes these issues, the problem being that being new to Wine and Proton and the sorts, I don't really know what to do with the files and how to get it to the run the different version of DXVK.

Right now I've found some DXVK files under lib and lib64 under the proton folder in my steamapps common, Do I just swap the files out in there? Sorry if any of this is confusing.

The Forest on Mac

Hey everyone! I bought a copy of The Forest on Steam and need to get it running on my Mac. Im aware of the different options there are (Parallels, bootcamp, etc) but to keep it short, it needs to be done using Wine.

So far, Ive had the best success using a wine Steam installation from PlayOnMac. However I can get only to the point right after the splash screen, and then I get an in-game pointer, black screen and background music. Ive tried playing with the screen resolution settings under wine configurations, but have had no luck.

Has anyone got this gam to run on a mac using wine? Ive found tutorials on making it run on Linux, and even some youtube videos of people downloading cracked versions of the game and getting it to run o macs using custom wrappers, but no one mentions the settings.

On a last note, im aware that the portingteam has a wrapper for this game, but I am unable to log into their website to download it for some odd reason, so thats out of the gate.

Thanks on advance!

Battle net crashes after logging in

I think the problem is due to D3D11 ( Cannot create texture) since the launcher itself opens but nothing can be rendered and then it crashes. Maybe the problem is the Haswell Vulkan thing but I think I've set up everything correctly in terms of vulkans and dxvks and wtv.

I hate asking for help but I've looked everywhere but can't find the solution for this one.

Gotchas while developing for Linux?

I'm developing a game, and I want to support Linux as well (it'll be released on Steam), and I want to do it right. Based on your experience with Linux games/ports, is there anything that frequently goes wrong? Any WM, DE or GPU you have that typically isn't well-supported by games?

07/07/2019 07:59:31 CEST

The Myth that Linux dosen't hang is not true.

You know something I used to see a lot of people say when they tried to "sell" Linux was this idea that Linux doesn't freeze like Windows, I'm almost a full year running Mint 19.1 and I have had to cold boot my computer 3 times now when playing games. No Alt-F4.F5.F6 didn't work, the system was completely locked up. This time it was XCOM 2 and while loading the HQ it got stuck repeating the same 3 seconds of voice line on repeat forever.

I think this idea comes from the idea that since Linux powers servers that stay up for years at a time, this somehow translates to people thinking everything on Linux is super stable, but that's really just not comparable to using Linux on a Gaming PC.

I think this Myth needs to be put to rest. Linux (Mint specifically) is about as stable as Windows XP was when it was turning heads and making us all realize there really was a computer that didn't have BSOD every week, but rather every 6 months or so, which was amazing to me at the time, and is acceptable to me as an end user now, but don't expect to never have a lock up if your using Linux for gaming, it will happen from time to time.

Using Lutris for Unity based desktop app, upon opening it runs great but if window loses focus fps drops to 10 and stays there, input messes up.

Hey all, I am fairly new to Lutris but wanted to see if a Unity based 3d application (https://www.world-creator.com/) would run so I followed some steps I came across on a forum that told how to add a new game to Lutris and what to set the basics to and I was able to get it installed and then running and it ran great (capped at 60fps no matter what I tried, that I could find at least?) unless the window lost focus such as simply clicking outside of it (application runs windowed mode), or alt-tab, or even hitting open within the application to load map data from the Wine input boxes (which makes sense though, if they are separate windows).

The fps drops to 10 and stays there pretty consistently, but then also certain mouse functionality no longer works. Middle mouse works to pan, but left and right click no longer work properly. Everything stays goofed up until you close it and reopen.

The things I tried (as I mentioned, I am new to it, so I wasn't exactly sure what all to try yet), were installing a few different version runners, including the specific tkg (not sure what the acronyms stand for yet) unity4.5, an experimental lutris 4.10, , ge-proton 4.10, 4.9, DXVK version 1.2.3, 1.2.2, e-sync on and off, DXVK on and off (off I was not able to use the mouse at all), disabling lutris runtime, and possibly a few other random things but unfortunately none of the things I tried made any noticeable difference at all in any manner.

Does anyone happen to have any suggestions I might be able to try? Thanks!

Distro recommendations?

I'm wondering what the best Linux distro would be to run on my MacBook Pro. I'm exclusively going to use it to play Fortnite (don't hate me).

I have a 2017 MacBook Pro with a 2.3GHz Intel Core i5, 8 gigs of ram and an Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 graphics card. It's a low end model and doesn't run Fortnite well that's why I'm looking to dual boot Linux. My machine only has 128gb of storage so I'm looking for a lightweight distro.

Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

Valve Index and Linux gaming (Proton included)

Hello everyone.

I'm hyped for VR since Oculus DK1. Didn't buy any headset yer for various reasons.

Now I'm on the tipping point on decision of ordering whole set of Index. Only caveat is compatibility with available games.

My two go to games are Assetto Corsa (already running it on linux with great success) and Pavlov. Would ofc like to play more native games but those only are not enough to justify the purchase (atm).

Can anyone help me? Do you know if Liam from Gaming On Linux gonna get one for review? Do you know anything about the other road blocks other than running the game it self with proton?

Would very much appreciate your help fellow penguins!

Sekiro: full system crash

Well I got my controller working with Sekiro. Now the problem is that it crashes and takes down the whole computer. The game will randomly freeze, the screen will go a solid colour and then black and the fans on my PC will spin up to max. The only thing I can do is a hard reset.

This only happens with Sekiro, and always within 30 mins of getting in-game. Other games (including Dark Souls III) work fine and don't cause a crash. I've tried adding loglevel=7 systemd.log_level=debug to my kernel parameters but there's nothing obvious there. I've also tried running the game with lutris -d > logfile but there's nothing in there except lots of lines with 00e2:fixme:d3d9:D3DPERF_GetStatus (void) : stub.

Does anyone have any ideas for finding the source of the problem?

Personal Cloud Gaming Server

Hey all,

I'm thinking about buying some more servers soon and beefing them up. Likely a Dell Poweredge R720xd with some low form factor GPU. I've gotten my Emby Media Server VM to run solely on CPU (dedicate 18 threads to it on a spare server) runs anything from 720p - 4K UHD full quality to my phone/laptops from across my province without any buffering.

Here are my thoughts, all my of Laptops have CPUs only (e.g i5-4300U, i5-5300U), and about 8-16GB DDR3, very minimalist but the batteries last me all day so whatever. The problem is that I can't even play Cities Skylines without significant lag on these machines even with SSDs. But my servers are on a symmetrical 300/300mbps link to the internet and if I purchased one with say 128GB of DDR3 ECC and dual Xeon E5-2650 v4's, I'd be able to get some good shit done.

My two problems:

  1. Sourcing an adequate GPU, maybe a GTX 1050ti or 1060, or if possible some used Tesla P100 GPUs.
  2. Software setup, do I want to run Xen-NG with hardware passthrough to my VMs? Or should I buy a cheaper server and just say "to hell with it" and dedicate all the hardware to gaming?

If I'm seriously spending $2000 on an R720xd with all that glorious RAM, 6 to 8 500GB SSDs, dual amazeballs CPUs and a pretty good GPU, I want to use the thing for more than gaming. I run servers for reasons unrelated to gaming of course (web hosting, 10's of TBs of file storage, application services for business customers etc), so making a huge asset purchase just for gaming would be unreasonable in my mind.

I know this post is somewhat out of the ordinary for this thread but if you could at least give me pointers as to what I should do for the interfacing, that'll serve me well enough. Also, I'd much rather a personal cloud gaming server to say an $800 gaming tower because I'm not at any specific location for long periods of time. Thanks everyone!

Can anyone tell me if FFXIV Shadowbringers is working properly

I have been considering getting back into this game for a while, but some very recent posts as well as concerns at Lutris say it doesn't work properly after 5.0 have me holding off. The only threads I saw from people saying it's working seem to be from those who had to make a lot of edits to various files, configs, and settings. I'm not comfortable with that, being relatively novice in Linux, so I need to rely heavily on games working out of the box or using a Lutris installer.

Thank you in advance.

Looking for suggestions for good MMORPGs that run well on Linux?


I've been a Linux user for a while now (Ubuntu, Gentoo, arch) and have only gamed on Windows. I did play some games such as csgo, borderlands and left 4 dead 2.

On Windows I played world of Warcraft (my favorite) and overwatch. Among many others.

I'm looking for a good MMORPG that will run well natively or on the latest version of wine without too much tweaking.

It's important to mention that I'm using a laptop, Acer aspire e1 572g, 12 GB ram , i5 4200u, built in Intel graphics and Radeon 8670m which I have yet been able to use on Linux ...

I'm running Ubuntu 19.04 .

Which package to install on my Mac?

So I was looking into installing Wine on my Mac. Honestly though I have no clue what Im doing haha. I mean it seems pretty self explanatory but Ive never used anything like this. I installed XQuartz already and the site says its better for inexperienced users to install a package. Cool, easy enough, except theres three different packages and I havent found any information on the difference between them. So does it matter which package I install? Do I need all three? What the heck am I doing?

(2nd of 4 surveys) Opportunities, threats, and strategies of esports sponsorships (Only for people who watch/participate in esports) [Ends on 14 October 2019]

Hello everyone, Im doing my PhD in marketing and Im focusing on esports sponsorships. Until the end of 2019 I will be doing 4 different surveys on this topic. Each survey will be launched only once and on different months to avoid fatiguing the community. The only exception is the 2nd survey which will be launched a second time, one month after all 4 surveys have been launched, because I need a larger sample for the 2nd survey.

All surveys are anonymous and done on Google Forms (a completely safe website). The data from the surveys will be used for my PhD thesis and to develop 6 articles that will be published in scientific journals. The participation of all esports fans is extremely important and greatly appreciated (surveys are only for people who watch/participate in esports).

This is the 2nd survey. It takes about 8 minutes to complete and is related to the benefits, risks, and strategies of sponsoring esports. Here is the survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdUacl74DMc_BofKbD90NwRmohYAAgBlXmjjG_-P3QBmP6hCw/viewform?usp=sf_link

Thank you so much in advance.

If you are interested in easily following my next surveys (and their results), you can follow me here on Reddit or on Twitter: @EsportsAnalyses

This survey has been approved by the kind moderators.

Speedrun timer for Linux

So far I've tried Llanfair and it doesn't show up on OBS so I guess I can't use it.

I've also tried Linux Speedrun Timer which DOES show up on OBS but has the problem that I have no idea how to make splits for it.

I downloaded urn but I don't have any of the dependencies in my repos and I don't know where I can find them (LinuxMint 19.1)

Is there another one that I'm missing? Or is there someone who could help me make splits for LST? There doesn't appear to be any documentation for it that I could find. Urn seems to be the best one from what I can tell, I just don't know how to get it working.

I'm probably taking the Linux plunge for my next gaming rig, help me out

I'm building a gaming rig in August after all the new gear is out (Radeon 5000, Nvidia Super, Ryzen 3000), and I want to ask something.

-What kind of performance hit would I (approximately) get on games compared Windows? I already checked ProtonDB and everything I want to play is on Linux.

I'd be running something like this: Ryzen 3600 (for comparisons sake let's say it's about equivalent to 2700), GTX 1660ti (or AMD's equivalently priced if that's better), 8GB RAM, and a SATA SSD running Pop! _os. By the way, I have a 1080p 60Hz monitor (might upgrade to 1440p 144Hz monitor if 1440p 60fps or 1080p 60Hz+ is obtainable but that's not necessary.)

I'd really appreciate the help for some extra peace of mind when it comes to this.

Sekiro controller problems

I'm trying to use my Xbox One Wireless Controller over USB with Sekiro. I feel like I've tried every available option and it's still not working :'(

ls /dev/input/by-id shows the controller is detected. fftest will make it rumble. Starting Sekiro with Steam Play, I cannot get past the 'press any key to continue' screen. I've tried with Steam Input forced on and off, and checked that controller support is enabled in Steam settings.

Is there something else I can do? I've tried xboxdrv and xpadneo as well. Installing through Lutris winesteam didn't seem to help. The controller works fine in other games, including Dark Souls III.

The steam hardware survey for the last month has not been posted here…

It shows a drop of 0.08 percentage points for linux. The last one was posted here, it showed an uptick.

The thread was full of people using it as an indicator that linux gaming is growing (relatively, compared to windows) and downvoted everyone who pointed out that the hardware survey gets posted here more frequently when it shows positive and less frequently when it shows negative signs.

This subreddit has a serious problem with ignoring anything negative and clinging way too much at anything that could be interpreted as something positive and I'm sick of it.

Back when linux only had OpenGL everyone was totally convinced that OpenGL is the best thing ever without problems and that developers only didn't invest enough time into OpenGL to make something good. With Vulkan arriving suddenly most people are saying that OpenGL is really bad. Classic example of not acknowledging problems but luckily the wider ecosystem doesn't give a shit about the opinions of this sub.

Same happened with Wine. It was the devil and everyone here said it's impossible to get good performance until Proton/dxvk happened.

Another thing this sub is always repeating is that shipping games on linux is not a problem when it really is. This perception might finally also change with Valve saying they're and have been looking at improving the their runtime.

My point is that this sub really likes to ignore problems just so they can say that linux gaming is actually super great. This is not helping anyone. Not the people you're giving a wrong impression of linux gaming and end up being disappointed, no the developers who actually want to fix the problems and not developers who want to ship their games to linux.

Backing up saves

Hey guys!

So, I'm really considering making the switch to linux this summer and wanted to know the best way to backup all my steam saves. I've read that GameSave Manager is the way to go. However, it saves everything in .gsba and it looks like you need the program again do unarchive everything, and you don't even have control to where the saves go... Do I really have to backup everything manually?

Sorry if this has been asked before. I looked around but didn't find anything on this sub Thanks a lot!

Linux support for Mobile gpu drivers


AMD support for their graphics driver has been great on Linux and Nvidia has their proprietary drivers too. I currently use a 1050TI on desktop myself. Thing is I have been planning to ditch my desktop for whatever little gaming I do. I hardly play for more than 30 mins a day if I can at all and it is reduced to mostly indie or esports titles. Dont mind dropping resolution or details either. Also I have been looking for a laptop for my work related activities.

After some digging I have been leaning towards a Thinkpad E series with R5 3500U which fits my needs perfectly. So I wanted to ask how has been driver support on Linux for AMD integrated mobile solutions like Vega 8 & 10 and is it on par or worse than Windows. I am gonna install Linux anyway for work so should I game on windows or Linux depending on driver support. Also if Thinkpad is not a good option then please suggest another one as well.

PSA: Latest KDE Plasma patches on Manjaro fixed my issues with KDE compositor auto-disable and Steam(maybe other?) graphical games

Previously, if I tried to minimize or switch to another desktop while a steam game was open, my KDE Plasma bar/panel would be extremely buggy and unresponsive, and always show the time as 12:17. It was connected to the compositor being disabled when launching said games (it may be for non-steam titles as well, but I never tested it). After the latest update pushed through Manjaro Stable repos (meaning something more bleeding edge has had these changes already), I no longer have the issue!

I just thought I would mention this in case anyone is still running compositor on KDE (and slowing down their games!) while gaming to avoid this issue, or if they have had the issues with their bar/panel/system clock while having games open and were unaware of the cause!

How to play Diablo 1 on Linux

Hey reddit. I made this video on YouTube showing how to play the reversed engineered version of Diablo 1, for Windows, on Linux. The way I show how to do it is kind of weird. But it's kind of hard for me to set the Linux version up, as I'm not sure if I have all of the 32bit drivers set up right. I have gotten a little bit further on getting the Linux version to work. Right now I have some kind of problem with SDL_Init working with UDEV. But the Linux version is closer to working for me than it was when I made the video yesterday. Either way; the Windows version is playable on Linux.

Anyway; here is the video. How to play Diablo 1 on Linux. I hope it helps some of you with getting it to run.

Looking for a distro

hello everyone,

Im looking to finally abandon windows. Only reason I still use it is because of gaming.

Now I'm looking for some distro's to test on my previous gaming rig before making the switch.

Can I get some distro suggestions? (no ubuntu) I'm not a leek. I have been working as a support engineer for a year at a hostingcompany (proxmox, jelastic,centos,freenas,...) and since two months i'm a junior linux engineer.

TLDR: not a linux leek, need distro suggetion for gaming (no ubuntu).

"Wineskin is currently busy Please wait..."

I'm sure this has been here before but the only solution I've ever found is "hold alt while opening Wineskin.app" and that doesn't work. (This just confuses me because there's only an option key with an alt function. Holding fn+option does not work either.) I've searched for other solutions and tried a whole bunch of stuff in Terminal to get it to shut down/restart/kill/etc. but none of that stuff worked either. Please know that I'm new to this so if I'm doing something wrong please point it out...

Remember, I'm new to all this Wineskin stuff so I would really appreciate it if anyone used simplified terms and/or thorough explanations on how to get Wineskin to reopen so I can kill all the processes and reselect osu!'s proper .exe...

Native Linux Mod Manager

Hi, so some time ago I was seeing a post here about a native mod manager for linux, and decided to check if it was already requested, and it was, I've seen one post on the nexus forum, and one open issue on github.

There appears that someone is working on porting Nexus Vortex to Linux, sadly I don't know how to code, so I figured I'll try to post here to see if anyone here can help him out.

This is the open issue (the guy creating the port is one of the last repliers).

LTS vs Rolling

So this won't be about the differences in the two, but about some use cases from each.

I am a long time Linux user on servers, home servers, media centers etc. With that, I have always been an avid gamer and have used Windows on my Desktop to accomplish this. With the recent changes in the Linux gaming world, and just how easy and stable it is to install and run those same games now, I am on my way to ditch the clutches of Microsoft (for home atleast) on my Desktop and finally make the leap to a free Desktop that I have wanted to do for years.

My question is, with LTS releases being the most stable than Rolling releases, would it be wise for me to run an LTS release and update on each LTS be a better option for someone that wants things to just work, or am I going to run into more issues with games breaking because the game updates, but my packages or distro is not?

I am aiming for Pop_OS! 18.04 with Nvidia for my OS of choice.

Debian Buster and Steam problems.


I am not sure this is the right place but I am trying anyway.

I have just setup Debian Buster (using the RC3 installer).

I have installed Steam and the closed source driver from Debian's repo. And when launching Steam (after login) then I get error saying "could not connect to steam network"
The output from the console is:

Running Steam on debian 10 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
Pins up-to-date!
[2019-07-03 19:03:13] Startup - updater built Jun 17 2019 23:31:08

[2019-07-03 19:03:13] Verification complete
STEAM_RUNTIME_HEAVY: ./steam-runtime-heavy

This link suggest that it is due to a kernel bug:
It should be fixed in 4.19.55, but Debian Buster is only running 4.19.37.
Do you think that is the issue or should I look somewhere else?

Native Dying Light is now playable again with Mesa master

For those that care and had issues with Dying Light since their distribution switched to using libglvnd, Timothy Arcery got patches in last week that make it work now. I don't think his patches fixed the actual underlying issue, but that's irrelevant to end-users.

(Proton may still offer better performance though.)

Thanks to everyone involved, including /u/tarceri, /u/Vaiski and of course the guy who debugged the issue, sorry John I forgot your reddit username :/

How to start Nvidia Driver ?

Hi people, a strange thing is happening to me.After i install on fresh system nvidia driver a can't load it =/

> nvidia-settings
ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded

> nvidia-smi -a NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

At same time

I set myself the task to achieve the simplest result - to find an opportunity to switch to nvidia card.No switching on the fly, the fact that I will need to reboot the system to switch between cards - suits me perfectly, so I don't need bumblebee.

I need drivers for nvidia, without it nothing will work, so i download from official site drivers for MX150 (MX 100 series)NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-430.26, unpack it

 sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-.run --extract-only  

disable the nouveau driver (NVIDIA driver is incompatible with the nouveau)

sudo mkdir /etc/modprobe.d  echo "blacklist nouveau" | sudo tee --append /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-disable-nouveau.conf echo "options nouveau modeset=0" | sudo tee --append /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-disable-nouveau.conf

install drivers

sudo ./nvidia-installer --no-nvidia-modprobe --no-distro-scripts --no-opengl-files --no-libglx-indirect --no-install-libglvnd --no-install-compat32-libs --dkms --ui=none

Reboot and now i here.Nvidia kernel modules loaded but not... run?

Not releasing and open sourcing GOG Galaxy 2.0 is a missed opportunity for Linux gaming

GOG Galaxy 2.0 not releasing on Linux is a giant missed opportunity. Not open sourcing the whole client is another missed opportunity. Imagine Galaxy 2.0 on Linux with further community integrations with Lutris/PlayOnLinux. Imagine a DXVK/WINE/Proton wrapper natively integrated into the client that just works with Battle.net/Origin/Steam/Twitch/uPlay and even x86-based Microsoft games on Windows.

This would bring all the platforms together under a single, beautiful client and it'd easily allow Windows users to transition and play all their x86-based Windows games on Linux with ease.

The open source community integrations could be bonkers Except the community could technically integrate streaming into GOG Galaxy 2.0 via the open source plug-in feature. There's little to show for community-made plug-ins beyond launcher integrations right now, but some pretty wild stuff is possible.

A GOG rep tells me that some people have already made plug-ins that allow users to launch and stream Xbox games to PC (or Mac), a plug-in that pulls in your entire iTunes library, and a Discord plug-in that integrates your Discord friends and conversations into GOG Galaxy 2.0.

Some ideas off the top of my head: someone could make a plug-in that lets you install and launch PS4 games in GOG Galaxy 2.0 via PlayStation Now. Maybe Twitch and YouTube plug-ins allow for easy streaming or clip-sharing. A plug-in that connects to your Stadia library and launches it via a Chrome plug-in from within the Galaxy client. A plug-in that makes a fart noise every time you launch a game. The possibilities are beyond anything on offer from any launcher right now.

All these clients work on Linux already. It takes a little more work than it should and lowering the barrier for entry would be a net positive for everyone involved. It's a shame GOG/CDPR hasn't acknowledged how big this would be for us. Galaxy isn't just "another client" and I hope people realize what kind of potential this has for Linux gaming because this is basically what I've dreamed of for Linux gaming since I started many many years ago.

copied games from a linux drive , then copied them to a new formatted linux drive , now they all need to redownload?

so i copied about 300 gigs of games that where all working fine with no issues in ubuntu before my switch to mint , now i am installing them all again and its telling me they all basically need to download 10-20 gigs each

for example , my project cars was working fine but i just copied it over and now it needs to download 19gigs out of the 25ish i copied over. same with borderlands 2 and pre-sequel

i thought just doing the copy pasta trick would work no issues but i guess i was wrong which really sucks cause my download speeds are only 400kbs so i got anywhere from hours to days downloading these , and thats just a few of the games i haven't even copied them all over yet

Hopping distros

Due to an increase in annoyances and issues with my current Mint/Mate gig (worst of which renders the computer useless) I feel it's time to try out another distro.

Mint is only my second go, the first was ubuntu. I don't intend to stick with any single distro forever, preferring to keep trying and seeing what is out there. With that in mind, I would like my current problems to NOT be an issue next time over, if possible. As such a primary wish from a new distro would be excellent handling of multiple monitors (including of course within games).

That said, I have no idea how to gauge if any specific distro is better than others for this.

So far I have been sizing up OpenSUSE and Manjaro, but I have also seen popOS pop up more often on here lately.

Lastly I have a strain of wanting to just go for something weird like kali or one of the options on this list and make it more of a learning experience before moving on to another more gaming oriented platform later.

In other words, Lubuntu or Pop_OS will be affected by the 32bit drama in the long term (+20.04)?

I am a linux newbie and I have been running only these kind of distros because I am more familiar with apt than any other package manager, and just thinking if I should do the jump to some Arch based distro to get used when the times come. I think it is crucial for me since I play in private WoW servers and retro games with retroarch.

Cannot install WoW with the Battle.net Launcher

Hey everyone,

For the past several months I have been completely unable to install WoW in a fresh prefix using the Battle.net app. I've posted on a few WineHQ threads and bug tickets but I can't seem to find anyone else still having this issue so I was hoping someone here might be able to help.

I'm running wine-staging 4.11 on Arch Linux, and I'm installing Battle.net into a fresh 64 bit prefix. corefonts have been installed with winetricks and I've also tried installing vcrun2017. When I try to install WoW, I get to "Checking residency", and then Agent.exe hangs indefinitely or crashes/restarts. This also happened when I tried to install via Lutris so I don't believe it's an issue with my prefix.

I've tried the workarounds listed here, (deleting the product.db file, restarting Agent.exe, launching Battle.net Launcher.exe instead of Battle.net.exe), but no matter what it always gets stuck on "Checking residency".

Has anyone else ran into this problem? Let me know if there's any other information I can provide.

I'm sure that the Sims 3 questions have been answered before, but here we go.

So I have the disc based copies of The Sims 3, I have installed it using WINE on my PC (4.0.1) and added the NoCD patch and am able to launch and play it. But while I am playing it seems to get into these moments where it slugs pretty hard and requires some patient waiting to make a move such as opening the menu to save and quit.

So here are my questions...

  1. Is there any recommendations that I can try to get some of this lag under control?
  2. Did I go about the installation wrong?
  3. Would Proton work better for this purpose? If so how do I use disc copies with Proton?
  4. Should I have used a different Wine version?

Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide.

Edit: just realized that the rules say not a support forum. My bad. off to r/linuxquestions

Sensitivity in Super Hot?

The in-game sensitivity setting in SUPERHOT doesn't go nearly low enough, although it doesn't seem to affect the sensitivity at all. I also tried to modify the config in ~.config/unity3d/SUPERHOT_Team/SUPERHOT/ but it made no difference, even if changing it to 0.

Update on the Ross Scott (Freeman's Mind) situation, still needs a bit of help for his upcoming video on Linux Gaming

To recap: Last month, Ross Scott (creator of Freeman's Mind and Game Dungeon), mentioned that he could use some help with an issue he was having while attempting to benchmark wine games under Linux for his upcoming video on the subject.

I made this thread to try and gather experts that could offer advice. Apparently, someone sent him the link to that thread, and he responded with more information to help diagnose the issue, which you can read below:

Hi, this is Ross, I was linked to this thread. If people want further clarification, I made a video on this a while back:


The beginning is still completely relevant. Everything after 5:20 is outdated, it was defaulting to an older version of WINE when I typed in the frame monitoring for the terminal. I'll try to test the nvidia_drm thing soon.

If you think you know the solution, you can contact Ross at: RossWScott@gmail.com

(be sure to read the responses from the original thread first, to avoid duplicate suggestions! :P)

I'll also ping him here again in case he checks reddit randomly. /u/Ross_Scott

Has anyone managed to get Bloodstained running via Lutris?

I unfortunately forgot to change my key from GOG to Steam when I backed it. The game doesn't work for my when I try and run it through Lutris. It works if I run it through Steam as a non-steam game however I can't get my 360 controller to function with it.

Anyone had any luck?

Grand Theft Auto 5 .NET plugins: A How to guide

I just found out how to install .NET Plugins in gta 5 via wine. I didn't find anyone else explaining how to do this, so let me explain how I did it.

In lutris I opened winetricks and went to the "Install a Windows DLL or Component". I then selected d3dcompiler_42, d3dcompiler_43, and d3dcompiler_47. Along with d3dx10, d3dx10_43, d3dx11_42, d3dx11_43, and d3dx9. And for .NET and vcrun select vcrun 2012-2017 and dotnet452. Remember to add dinput8.dll to winecfg if you didn't already.

TL;DR in winetricks install d3dcompiler_42, d3dcompiler_43, d3dcompiler_47, d3dx10, d3dx10_43, d3dx11_42, d3dx11_43, d3dx9, vcrun 2012-2017 and dotnet452. And remember to add dinput8.dll to winecfg if you didn't already.

If you did that, you are free to install scripthookvdotnet and install other .NET mods!

Wine with native-raw-input patch Lutris build.

Hello, I recently made a wine patchset that adds native raw-input support to wine, which (in games that utilize it) removes all mouse acceleration or other effects your DE may apply to your mouse movement. This patchset also fixes the Overwatch bug where the mouse would move after releasing the emote wheel. The patches can be found on the wine mailing list and if any of you want to try it, here is a wine build for lutris. (drag the folder inside the archive to ~/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/)

Installing vcrun2008 on a 64 bit Wine prefix ?

0144:fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.VC90.CRT" (9.0.21022.8)

The game needs vcrun2008 , I already installed it from Winetricks , vcrun2012 and dot NET 4.0 but still same error appears .... setting it to Builtin didn't make any difference !

I think there's something wrong with the package Winetricks installs but I really have no clue !

The arguments section appears to only be for windows commands.

World of Warcraft on Lutris problem =(

Hi Guys

I'm having a little bit of trouble getting World of Warcraft to work through Lutris. I think I may just be doing something dumb as I don't see a lot of people running into this particular problem. I'm hoping maybe someone can point me in the right direction :)

I am using Linux mint(I have tried popos as well and received the same problem).

I have installed wine and Lutris.

I have checked to make sure my Nvidia graphics card driver is up to date.

I have checked to make sure I meet prerequisites listed on the World of Warcraft Lutris page.

When trying to install Battle.net from lutris I run into a error message telling me that the folder(that battle.net is trying to install to) does not exist.

It seems like lutris is trying to read the battle.net executable file from a /Program files (x86)/ directory. This folder however does not exist.

Has anyone perhaps run into this problem before?

League of Legends on Linux

tl;dr: I think there is no way to play LoL on Linux anymore.


I played LoL with wine until last year then it stopped working do to a patch by riot to block all possibilities to play on Linux. Now I thought I give it a try again and check if there is a solution left.

it's the same for all solutions, you get into the client everything works you start a game and at the point where the game window should open you get a critical error


  • like I said I started with a standard Wine install: error
  • the install via snap(also based on wine): error
  • VirtualBox with Windows 10: error


solutions I didn't try:

I haven't tried lutris because it's also based on Wine and I don't expect anything else.

Last idea is to try a different Virtual environment or a virtual machine with macOS.

How to use a Steam Proton game's prefix to launch something else?

Hi all. After much teeth grinding work and effort, I *finally* have Assetto Corsa running in Proton after using Proton tricks to install a tons of extras. There is another game being tested (Infinity Battlescape) not yet downloadable from Steam whose launcher supposedly requires similar mods to be able to run. Rather than build another prefix from scratch for IB, is there a way to start the launcher's .exe using the Assetto Corsa's prefix I just built and added to? Is it just a matter of:


then just:

WINE .exe

A few other questions:

  • Is there any harm running another title can do to the prefix?
  • Can you also copy one game's prefix (this one, for example, with a working dotnet!) to another title's prefix to gain the same augmentations?

Vega 64 users who would like to share theire experience with DXVK?


So I recently purchased a Vega 64 by Asus and then switched back to Linux. Before that I used a GTX 970 on Win10 and before that I played on Ubuntu 16 to 18 with the 970.

I would really like to know what performance I should expect, since I watched some videos on YouTube by people using the Vega 64 or weaker cards and they get better performance than me.

My setup:

CPU: i7-7700k

GPU: Asus Strix Vega 64

RAM: 16Gb 2400

Storage: 250Gb Samsung m.2 and two times a 500Gb Samsung SATA SSD

OS: Pop OS 19 with 5.1 Kernel via Ukuu

GPU via Screenfetch: GPU: Radeon RX Vega (VEGA10, DRM 3.30.0, 5.1.10-050110-generic, LLVM 9.0.0)

Games I play are World of Warcraft, Overwatch and Battlefield V.

In World of Warcraft I still barley hit 60 fps at full HD.

Overwatch runs quite fine, except for some big frame drops when someone is using an ultimate for example.

Battlefield runs barley any good. It is really stuttery.

My performance seems way of compared to this (WoW).

Even more compared to this Battlefield V Gameplay.

I really hope some other Vega users can help me out here.

Steam Play overlay reduces fps

Hello there,

so I have a headless setup at home, Ubuntu 18.04.1, liquorix kernel LTS, oibaf-ppa, R7 2700X, Vega 64 and I stream to my television. I start Anthem and Star Citizen via Steam from Lutris and in both games I experience severe low fps. So I started playing with the settings and reducing bandwith for the connection and tried both games with a direct cable connection to the PC. The bandwith experiments didnt do much, yet when directly connected the games run around 45 - 60 fps, so a good increase from former 20 - 30 fps.

I figured when I stream to the steam link and start the games without steam directly from lutris while streaming, they almost run with normal fps. Maybe 5 fps less, due to the streaming overhead. I tried different wine versions and had several dxvk versions over the time but those do not have an impact on the situation.

So I played Anthem with direct output to the television and figured, it runs at 45 - 60 fps showing around 6000 graphic pipelines in use. I earlier recorded Anthem being started via Steam Remote Play and have a look at the graphic pipelines:


They are multiplied by ten. So the Steam overlay seems to gravely impact the game performance during streaming.

Regarding lutris games its ok, since I can circumvent the overlay. But I was wondering how I can deactivate it for proton games, cause I guess it does have an impact there too. Can I deactivate it by simply switching off the overlay in steam?

If you have any information here, I'ld be happy if you could share them and tell me if maybe I am doing something wrong.

Thank you in advance,

Greetings ~ent

Is Linux not ready to take advantage of high-end gaming hardware yet?

this is kind of a rant, but also a real question. This is by no means saying that linux is "bad" or whatever, since i started using it It's been a pleasure to work with, both for games (which at the time, i only played few lighter titles) and for general work.

But not too long ago i bought a new laptop and decided to invest some money to get RTX2060 and 144hz screen, and quite frankly, it's the first time that i'm even thinking about switching back to windows since i ever touched windows

Never-mind the drivers, which are harder to setup for optimus laptop on most distros, but it seems like no matter how much i'm trying to tweak some games, there is significant performance plenty on most titles. Obviously it's more apparent with proton-games but really, proton was the reason i felt like i can finally to linux full time because most games works well enough.

But it seems like there is just no way around it: if you want to get the highest frame-rates possible and this is quite important if you own high-refresh rate monitor and you want to take advantage of it, then Linux is not a good option yet (?)

[issue]Thinkpad x250 - Warframe

Hello r/linux_gaming,

I have a x250 i5-5300u with 8G ram.

I recently switched to Linux only on this machine because reasons and am occasionally gaming - WF, CS:GO.

After I switched to Linux (Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian and now Manjaro) from Win10, I experienced this issue with WF - I am able to get into the game and play for a bit, after a certain / random time the game just kills itself, no crash status, nothing. Sometimes it happens to be 5 mins into the game, sometimes it takes a bit longer. On win10 it ran just fine with no issues. CS:GO runs smooth.

Has anyone experienced this issue?

Age of Mythology EE via Steam through Wineskin on Mac - Black Menu Screen

I've got Steam running in Wineskin. I was recently able to play Vampire - The Masquerade: Redemption flawlessly which was a whole lot of fun. I just downloaded and installed Age of Mythology EE as it is currently on sale for $7 in the Steam store.

Unfortunately, when the game boots up the menu screen is black and the music is playing in the background. Any suggestions or known methods to fix this?

Apparently the issue happens on Windows 10 on PCs, but I'm not sure how to 1) adjust 'compatibility mode' on MacOS as you would on PC and 2) the recommended solution of entering "alt+E" as you would on a PC doesn't seem to be translating as "option+E" on the Mac.

Paradox on Linux: May Abandon Linux - Stadia Might Rescue It.

Interesting comments from Paradox on Linux. It's about 1% of their revenue but significantly higher percentage of support costs. Their Linux share has been declining. They are inclined to abandon Linux but are deciding on a title-by-title basis. Interestingly, they mentioned that they are looking at Stadia and that the requirements there might make it less expensive to continue to support Linux.

Wii U Gamecube adapter doesn't shows up in Steam

Colonizations II (CIV IV - Colonizations) randomly crashes or freezes.

Hi, I'm (trying) to play Colonizations II on Manjaro Linux with Wine 4.9. However, most times when I want to load a game it freezes. Rarely when playing it just closes. I am able to play. But when I want to play a saved game I often need to start the game 5 - 6 times so it finally doesn't freeze. So far I added in the winecfg library d3dx9_36 (builtin, native), gameus (disabled), msxml3 (native, builtin), msxml4 (native, builtin). I'm not sure if I need them all or if I need more. Ah, one more thing I did: Putting msxml3r.dll into the game's folder. So, I don't know much how about using wine, but I'd be really happy if I could play this game without fearing it to crash. Any tips appreciated! Thank you.

Well Fallout 4 works in Proton if anyone is wondering.

I tried it with Proton 4.2 and the game loaded, I made a character, and made it to the Concord part of the game. I havent tested with any mods or creation stuff, but all of the DLCs are loaded. There are some issues however: 1. None of the dialogue loads nor is there any music (ambient sounds and combat noises still work however). 2. At the beginning of the game, the cursor kept jumping randomly. 3. The game seems to be locked in a tiny resolution in pip-boy mode, you cant move your mouse to the outskirts of the pip-boy screen. 4. There are random white boxes on the heads up display.

Epic games's games through Steam's Proton?

We all know Epic doesn't support Linux as of the time of this writting (which isn't suprising because they don't even have a shopping cart yet), however a user found a workaround for this issue: https://itsfoss.com/epic-games-lutris-linux/

Now Steam has this interesting feature on Proton (A set of tools that lets you play windows games on linux) that you can play even games outside steam through this feature (so cool!). Anyway, sure I could go and put every single Epic game on my steam library (which I haven't tested also), but it would be cool if there is a workaround to make this automatically work once I hit "Play" on the Epic Launcher. Does anyone know how to do this?

Building new PC. Any MB vendor recommendation for Linux?

Hey all,

I'm building a new PC soon and I'll attempt to go full Linux once again (last attempt was 2-3 years ago and lasted only about 4-5 months but that was before Proton and DX11 support in Wine). I used Mint but I might give Pop OS a go this time.

I will most likely go Ryzen 3 for CPU, GPU is still up in the air (I heard both teams have decent drivers now, is that right?) but I was mostly wondering about motherboards. Is there a vendor with a better track record for Linux? Or one to avoid?

I understand that they will probably all work fine and that their included software is mostly trash anyway, but sometime a few features can be interesting (thinking about fan curves for example). Besides, since there is not much to differentiate MBs sometime I might as well encourage the vendor the most friendly to the Linux community.

Thanks for any tips!

Installing asynx dxvk on Lutris

Hello, i got to the point where i have decent FPS in a game (AC:Ody) but it still far from good and it is most likely shader issue.

people suggested me to try async but it doesn't improve much, but i'm wondering if maybe i just installed it wrong.

From what i have seen, you just create dxvk-async folder on the lutris's dxvk folders and just drag and drop the x32 and x64 folders from the async binaries, change dxvk version to "dxvk-async" and DXVK-ASYNC=1

is that it really it?

[Guide] : How to kill a freezing Wine game .exe or an out of memory app.

If you find a game freezing your machine and takes control of the screen focus the follow these steps:

[This only will work if the game didn't take full control of keyboard, otherwise a hard power off is the only option.]

[I tried this on Manjaro and Ubuntu but can't approve for other distros.]


  1. Press alt + ctrl + F4 (Works on Manjaro and Ubuntu).
  2. The tty console will open, login with your username and password.
  3. In Ubuntu type the command: [ps -a] or in Manjaro: [ps -e].
  4. A long list of running processes will appear, look for the freezing .exe name in it.
  5. At the left of it's name there's an ID number, to kill the app. type [kill -9 ].
  6. To go back to the desktop in Ubuntu press alt + ctrl + F1 or in Manjaro it will be alt + ctrl + F7.


Another step you can do to prevent the game from taking the focus from desktop is (By using Lutris) go to the game configure menu > System options tab > turn on "disable desktop effects".

This will help when a game sits on top of your desktop and refuses to alt + tab.

There's a workaround the others use is to navigate to another desktop workspace (If you enabled multiple workspaces from your system) and safely kill the app from the second desktop by task manager or system processes app. but since I don't use multiple workspaces I find the two above solutions to be sufficient.

Hope it helps anyone in need.

Truing to setup Warframe using Lutris, having trouble with DXVK.

So Lutris said I needed DXVK to play Warframe, and should go to the like it gave in the pop-up to set it up. I followed the tutorial (given at https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=X6Vk_J3p2KA&feature=youtu.be). Though as I'm on Ubuntu 18.04 I couldn't get 6.0 version of mingw-w64 so instead of using

> ./package-release.sh master /home/xaud/.local/share/lutris/runtime/dxvk/dxvk-async --no-package

I used:

> ./package-release.sh master /home/xaud/.local/share/lutris/runtime/dxvk/dxvk-async --no-package --winelib

However in the end I got:

> fatal error: windows.h: No such file or directory

So any idea how to convert the build setup to be compatible for lunix?

Anyone else tried the Index (VR Headset) in Linux?

It's supposed to be officially supported by Valve - but it doesn't seem to have any sound device to output the sound to? With the HTC Vive, I just select the audio device, and it works.

I thought I'd ask here before creating a ticket with Valve. It's not meant as a support question, so I don't expect any suggestions on how to get it working. I'm just trying to figure out if the device works as intended in Linux for anyone.

New linux user gaming issues.

Hi so I've installed Linux Mint Mate like 2 days ago and it is just amazing for a first timer (might switch because of the following reasons in gaming and I don't like the icons and how it feels), but I tried installing League of Legends, had a hard time doing it and getting it to work. In the end it worked after 3-4 uninstalls and like 3 hours on searching the internet for a way that works for me. Got League installed, might seem perfect, right?! Actually not, I went in game and my frames were 20-30(on windows 70-90) and I had alot of lag on my pings: as an example I tried to ping that an enemy is missing, but my cursor moves like 5cm to the right and it pings to be careful (sometimes the moving thing doesn't happen but still it's frustrating).

Browsing experience on linux? LOVE IT. No more 100% CPU USAGE with browser spotify and discord open lol. It is just perfect.

Gaming experience? Sucks for me, any tips to improve it? I am running league trough Lutris and WINE. Have all my drivers updated.

Any other distros I can try for low PC's and for both gaming and browsing, programming etc?

Is this performance as expected with an Vega 64?


yesterday I switched back to Linux after getting my new Vega 64 (had a GTX 970 before). To be quiet honest I dont know why I switched to Windows but well here I am back back at Linux.

I followed the instructions here to get Mesa updated and followed these instructions to get Vulkan up and running.

Then I installed the dependencies for battleNet and followed this guide (I did not add the repo for drivers since I am on Pop OS 19).

After that I installed Lutris and used the install script for World of Warcraft to get started. Everything went fine, the game starts without any issue at all, but the performance is kinda poor or not as expected.

I watched a few videos and people could easily reach a stable 60fps with the Vega 64 on maxed settings.

So I barley hit the 60 and it is mostly around at around 48 fps, also it feels stuttery.

Everything runs on Pop OS 19.

CPU: i7-7700k

GPU: Asus Strix Vega 64 - kernel driver: amdgpu

RAM: 16gig

Game is on a Samsung SATA SSD, while root is on an M.2.

If there is any further information needed let me know.

32bit, Valve vs Canonical and toxicity-free attempt to argument

When Mark Shuttleworth came with the idea of "Linux for human being" not everyone were happy. The philosophy of Unix is something like "Do one thing, do it good and don't mess with everything at once: its up for the user to build up their own living space in the system". Back then what Mark wanted wasn't seen as " humanify" but "dumb-ify". It was seen as " the Apple way".

Valve today is here with Linux because the "humanify thing": its not just Apple, Microsoft or Google that went for it. Turn out, Unix philosophy can work even when you take in account that sometime humans prefer to run the default setting first, and then adjust their living space once they get how thing work. I would dare to call a Unix philosophy 1.01 with a " but make it understandable" addition.

But living in that time, the more you loved the Unix philosophy the more you distrust Mark. The positivity around Ubuntu and all the *buntu (that worked almost like a lingua franca between gnome, kde, etc) made Linux being something more than just could,server and supercomputers.

Lot of people didn't like Canonical follow the Apple/Google way of things (dumb-ify the beauty of Unix from clean and isolated instances to in centralized binary with unified searches etc): but they through this path by their own. There were strictly Unix-agnostic distro, Gentoo/Arch diatro, RedHad/Suse distro, Hannah Montana distro... No one had worries about the "Linux future" because that was exactly what Linux was (and currently is) about.

Canonical isn't dropping 32bit because they want upset your gaming thing in the same way they didn't "betray" the Unix philosophy at that time. Cloud virtualized architecture) and Raspberry Pi (ARM architecture) are coming our way: you're willing or not. maintainers can't both support the legacy (32bit) and prepare themselves for the new paradigm of these new things.

To Valve Canonical drop of 32bit is an issue, just not the one you think (ie: Mark Shuttleworth being mean to Gaben). As Storefront holder, Valve pose themselves as neutral: they wouldn't have no problem in to switch to whatever they want... the problem is not Canonical, but find something else to say to Linux's customer and keep neutrality.

I think it's undoubtedly that Canonical today represented the most neutral ground in the Linux ecosphere.

Are Valve gonna suggest Arch? Does Arch sounds neutral to everyone taste?

They will advise the System76's PopOs! What they will say to System 76 competitors such as Dell&co.?

They got few actual options, they could also just that a look at snap, make their own ppa or whatever.

So, stop talking this as something like Valve vs. Canonical. Linux isn't Canonical-Linux like its Microsoft-Windows on the other side.

Canonical doesn't need Valve and Valve doesn't need Canonical: but both these parties doing what they are uniquely good at will mean only good for them both and us all.

Shenmue 1/2 &amp; Proton 4.2-8

The new proton update has listed

Upgrade wine-mono to 4.9.0, which includes winforms support. This may help some game launchers.

I currently don't have the data left to download Shenmue 1/2.

I was hoping to see if anyone with it installed has gotten Shenmue 1/2 Launcher to start up normally with 4.2-8 or if you still need to work around the game launcher?

SUSE &amp; Gaming

After all the Canonical and Valve stuff, decided to have a go with opensuse, and considering a few commenters mention wondering how it is I thought I'd post my experience with OpenSUSE Tumbleweed.

Setup was clean and painless. Had to install nvidia drivers and set up my cpu governor to performance with the below commands:

- sudo zypper addrepo --refresh https://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/tumbleweed NVIDIA

- sudo zypper in x11-video-nvidiaG05

- sudo nvidia-xconfig

- kdesu nvidia-settings

- made gsync changes, saved xorg.conf after applying to make persistent

# CPU Governor for max performance

- sudo cpupower frequency-set -g performance

This Is not persistent after reboot, had to do the below:

- cd /etc/systemd/system

- sudo nano cpupower.service


Description=CPU Performance Govenor



ExecStart=/usr/bin/cpupower frequency-set -g performance



- save and exit nano

- sudo systemctl daemon-reload

- sudo systemctl enable cpupower.service

- reboot

Result was a surprisingly smooth experience, really enjoying KDE and below you see GW2 with D9VK running nicely too on my 4k monitor using Lutris.


I can't complain with how it's going so thank you to KDE, SUSE, Valve and Lutris for the gaming!

Any other tips on setup or improving performance, please let me know.

OpenGL 4.0 on Ubuntu 19 ft. AMD Radeon HD 6450

I have an Ubuntu 19.04 PC (with an AMD Radeon HD 6450 'Caicos' graphics card) that I'm trying to get to run a game that requires OpenGL 4.0. The problem is, my computer stubbornly insists that I am cut out for OpenGL 3.3, even though I updated to the latest version of Mesa from the "oibaf" repository.

Searching online has given VERY confusing and contradictory information about what I'm supposed to do now, so I figured I'd ask. Is there any way I can get the OpenGL 4 that this graphics card is heir to?

WINE is Not an Emulator - So what about a Windows emulator?

The major uproar around the dropping of 32-bit libraries got me thinking about the nature of Windows and other application support going forward. Eventually, 32-bit support will end, and with it we'll lose access to a huge collection of culturally significant works, particularly on the Windows platform although others, such as iOS, have experienced similar tragedies.

While we currently have ways of mitigating this (such as VMs), as time progresses it becomes increasingly difficult to legitimately run older versions of Windows within them. For example, psycocod3r explains that Windows 95 requires a specific patch to run correctly since VirtualBox mirrors your physical hardware and Windows 95 is not designed to run on CPUs with much slower speeds. Windows 98 requires the installation of Scitech Display Doctor in order to get working video display drivers.

The real answer seems to be emulation. Wine is the closest thing we have, but as the Wine site will tell you, it's a compatibility layer, NOT an emulator.

Now, my understanding is that most emulators focus on the hardware rather than the software aspect. UAE, for example, emulates the Amiga's hardware, which then allows you to run and install AmigaOS and other Amiga software in an environment they understand. Without any software, UAE can provide no actual capabilities of the system beyond, I assume, that which is accessible on boot. But Dosbox is both a hardware and OS emulator, since it emulates both the hardware environment DOS would run in, and then similarly a version of DOS itself (with some omitted and enhanced functionality).

My question: is it not possible to create a Windows equivalent of Dosbox? A Windows Emulator? A WinDoes? I imagine the nature of Windows makes this a daunting task both technically (like, which version of Windows?) and legally, and the performance knock would be... it'll be an experience, that's for sure. But such an approach has the potential to provide a commercially-independent, open-source and platform-agnostic method of running old Windows software in the future, which would be invaluable.

Please feel free to own me for my ignorance, but I'm really curious about the nature of this topic. Given the work done by the likes of the WINE and ReactOS teams, how difficult would such an undertaking be? Is it even possible?

Gaming keyboards for Linux

Currently I'm using an old generic keyboard but it's getting a bit tired and the crumb count after so many years is probably best not thought about. Thinking about getting a more gaming oriented keyboard to replace it so a couple of questions for the community:

Most such keyboards come with at least a few dedicated keys for volume control and the like and usually some kind of macro assignment functions. I assume this all needs Windows drivers so won't work under Linux. Are there any that will have any of this functionality under Linux?

Any recommendations as to keyboards that either work well under Linux or should be avoided like the plague as they won't work properly even as a generic keyboard?

Anyone having occasional problems in running games in bpm

Sometimes It happens that when i run a game in BPM It remains stuck with the screen showing the "three bars" animation indefinitely. In this case steam overlay doesn't work and i can't kill the process. So the only solution is to push reset. My system is Ubuntu with a steamos session ontop (a "fake" steamos we could say...). It happens both with native and with Proton games. I suspect that's because the system is indefinitely waiting for something from the net (valve authentication?) that doesn't arrive. Do you experience similar problems? How Can i investigate?

Let me start off with saying, I'm not a super tech boi. I just use google, and this is the first issue google couldn't help me with so I'm reaching out. Basically, I'm trying to run ps4 remote play with linux (wine) so far ive tried running it with play on linux with a 64 and 32 bit virtual machine to no avail. I keep getting the same message that "PS4 Remote Play cannot be installed on the following Windows versions" and then lists a bunch of versions of Windows I guess. If anyone knows a work around or a way to install it that would be gr8 thanks.

So, when i try to load in a game, the game freezes and stays there for a while. After it throws me to the desktop, when i run the game again, it works fine, and doesnt crash anymore..

The PlayOnGit Project aims to facilitate the installation of Windows games and software with just a single command, and will install everything that is necessary for the program to run, similar to playonLinux and lutris, however, updated and without bugs. Performance-focused, with correct and functional support for dxvk and d9vk. The project is constantly updated.

Who has never gone through those insane bugs of the playonlinux, has he? Then PlayOnGit automatically installs your favorite game. It downloads a version of the wine binary, and then automatically runs winetricks, correctly preparing the prefix. Leave everything ready so that the person can run his favorite game. The project is in Git, and aims to make life easier for all users, from the ordinary to the advanced.

To those who are interested, on the project page there is a tutorial that can be accessed by clicking here. On this page, the creator details and explains very intuitively, including having gifs that guide the whole process, how you can install and use the program.

[UNCONFIRMED] You might want to get Rocket League from Steam when there is a sale right now

As Epic acquired Psyonix while ago and there is still no confirmation whether Rocket League will be unlisted from Steam in favour of Epic Store, Steam Summer Sale 2019 is a nice opportunity to get the native version. While 50% off isn't a great deal, it is important to get the native version while it's available and let the Steam gets its cut instead of Epic getting whole profit.

Now that all these racing simulators are on sale it's time for valve to fix force feedback wheels in proton

All of these games have working force feedback if your run them in plain wine through wine steam, but if you try to use a force feedback wheel in proton, force feedback doesn't work. It would be amazing if force feedback would work in proton with these games since they're the only steam games i have to use lutris for, with all the problems that that brings:

  • no ingame overlay
  • winesteam stays running when you close the game
  • terrible fullscreen handling
  • the game crashing when you alt+tab

it makes me not want to play these games.

How to set up OC Genie with Linux

So I have a i5 4790K (I think, I know it's 4-series and is part of the K line) and I'd like to use the MSI built-in gentle overclocker, in part because I'm a coward and don't want to accidentally break my system.

However, when I turn it on in UEFI, my processor never scales above the normal limit. Even though it looks like a firmware thing, I wanted to see if there's anything I can do on the OS level to get OC Genie going.

EDIT: Oh God I just saw that there's a tech support thread, let me know if I need to move this there.

ZED releases for Linux today! This game was started in part with help from r/Linux_Gaming!

Pleased to announce that by the time you're reading this, ZED by Eagre Games has released a native build for Linux..

Several years ago, I popped by this sub to say hello and encourage people to try a demo we'd come up with to gauge Linux interest and feasibility. The response was overwhelming, and thanks to r/Linux_Gaming and Gaming on Linux and the awesome folks on IRC we made it, and I've said for years that I genuinely do not believe it would be possible without the support from our Linux backers who have contributed in many different ways over the years. There's been a lot of debate in gamedev on whether or not building for Linux is worth it for developers, and after the response we received I decided it was worth it and that I'd prove it.

A very long backstory cut short: ZED was probably one of the worst development hell's imaginable. Everything that went wrong did, from deaths in the family to losing funding, to sleeping on the office floor for over a year, to being forced to upgrade engine versions twice in the month before launch and being forced to delay our Linux release two weeks because of it (really sorry folks). The truth is that the Linux release almost didn't happen, and we had to engage in serious debate with our publisher over the merits of Linux. For years now I've been advocating Linux builds to other developers - they're fairly accessible now and from the time we started development on ZED to now, we've reached a Golden Age of Linux gaming with greater support and capability than ever before.

Thank you to this sub, the Linux community, and our amazing Linux beta testers who provided hundreds of hours of testing on Ubuntu 18/19.0.4, Arch, Manjaro, and even Solus on OpenGL and Vulkan. There's even SteamVR compatibility! We've got feedback from commited Linux gamers that this is "an outstanding Linux port, probably the best Unreal Engine port (they) have played" and we're really proud to have crafted a tight, compelling, and meaningful narrative adventure that's finally on Linux!

As with any Linux game, if you end up picking up a copy please let us know you're on Linux and show support! This will let us take this to our publisher and other developers (who I actively engage with) and advocate building for Linux. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a tremendously supportive and positive community. We look forward to continuing to engage with you further, both on ZED and further titles.

Diablo II botting?

I want to write bots using tensorflow. I had thought to use winedbg to trace and parse the running instance of Diablo and other games.

What I'm looking for is a method to set a watch point on any encountered conditional branch as this is where user input would be injected(blue pill style).

I also need to log writes to memory(just to collect the address and pointers these addresses) to have something to feed tensorflow. This would be done after D3D presentation... and I also need the screen image.

Is this possible? I had thought I could write something that would take the place of gdb.

I tested 4 "Linux-compatible" USB 3.0 HDMI capture cards

My Specs:

Manjaro Linux (KDE) - Kernel 5.1.8-1

Windows 10 (idfk what update)

CPU: Ryzen 7 2700X


GPU: Sapphire Vega 56 Pulse

OBS Version: 23.1.0-1 (linux), 23.1.0 (64bit, windows)

Devices Tested:

Plus impressions given before testing.

Criteria for getting on my test bench:

  • 1080p 60hz (duh)

  • USB 3.0 minimum or PCIe

  • HDMI Passthrough for 0 latency on another monitor

  • Under $200

  • Has Linux in the search terms and looks like it supports V4L2 at a glance. (Otherwise, UVL is acceptable, but V4L2 wording is preferred.)

MiraBox Capture Card (HSV321) with updated firmware (more info on this later) @ $99 (on sale from $179, but unsure if it goes up from $99 due to reviews and Honey saying it didn't see any price changes in 30 days.) (Also, bypasses HDCP which is a nice bonus, but might make some companies or countries mad)

ClonerAlliance Flint 4KP @ $140 (The most expensive one here, but boasts USB Type C, mic + audio in + audio out jacks, and 4K@30fps passthrough.

Plugable Performance NIX @ $100 (When I was first looking around, I was stuck between this and the MiraBox before I decided to buy them all for this post.)

Bonus Cheapo:

"HDMI Game Video Capture Card" @ $80

This one I just wanted to add for that one person who just wants to see how a $80 "card" functions compared to the rest that have proper Passthrough and other neat features.

  • Being compared against:

Elgato HD60 Pro @ $160

I got this card back when I first got my Nintendo Switch in early 2018. And my experience with it was pretty consistent until I switched to Linux.

Things to note in no particular order:

  • Crappy sound grounding (very noisy, lots of ticking and sometimes hissing)

  • Default software... kinda sucks. But AFAIK, you can't get "Instant Gameview" without it. (I could be wrong, though)


  • Rather user friendly.

  • Good video quality with minimal lag that did me fine for most of BoTW, but started using HDMI Passthrough when I got into Celeste due to the input latency. (HDMI IN - Switch. HDMI OUT - Monitor. Software on for audio, monitor switched to HDMI input for video)

I will be daisychaining the output from the cards to the Elgato to give an exact comparison of how the other card compares in terms of video fidelity.


Detailed Reviews:

  • MiraBox

Well, this one had a bad start. First, every USB 3.0 port on my motherboard/case did not work! At all!

It was only until I plugged it into a USB Type A (Yes, A. Not C.) 3.1 port that it started outputting video consistently, and not only after reboots and only for 5 mins. Not sure if that's an issue with the Mobo, but still.

Turns out, my mobo only supports USB 3 DATA on it's usb ports. I grabbed a new PCIe USB 3.0 card, and it works fine.

After that, I had 0 audio from the card. Nada.

I had to contact the support to get the newest firmware to flash onto the card, which then solved the no-sound issue. You may be wondering "Why, Tony. Why didn't you get photos of how the output was before the update?"

Because screw having no audio! If it can't do audio on its own (even if its crappy), then I see no point in keeping the card around for video (especially since it's not the best quality to begin with).

Additionally, I did the update in Windows 10, as the updater was an EXE and I didn't wanna test my Wine or VM luck, as it had been quite low lately.

The audio however, is quite nice! No crackles, no sutters, decent latency.

Video though, is another story. If I had to put it into one word, it would be JPEG. It feels like every frame was run through a Windows XP machine (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEzhxP-pdos)

I think, if I had to guess what the issue is, it's a low bit/color depth. Maybe even a low resolution? Very fine details are smeared, alpha channels don't much exist, etc.

Also, everything is darker.

Overall: 6/10. Good audio, shite video if you actually wanna stream or record with it, unstable (freezed up a lot), strips HDCP.

  • Plugable Performance NIX

If you wanna waste your money, go here.

Crap video, audio is ok, doesn't strip HDCP, had to plug and unplug several times, etc.

Do not bother.

Overall: 3/10. It works I guess

  • Flint 4KP

So what do you get for $140? The best card I tested here, plus some USB C-A dongles.

Video quality is spot on, with no color banding, and decent color representation. Runs at 60fps without noticeably extra crappy compression.

When I got the new PCIe card, the audio did start to get a little crackly, but it's possible that's just an issue with my case/grounding. And when it was plugged into other machines or in the Mobo's USB ports, there was none.

It does strip HDCP, which is +1 point.

Bundled software is ok, but does offer a game mode for Windows users.

Using it in OBS is perfectly fine, however.

Overall: 9/10. Great vid, ok audio (could just be me), strips HDCP, USB-C, Line In/Mic In/Line Out 3.5mm jacks. Today's winner.

  • Bonus Cheapo

ditto from NIX, but without passthrough but does strip HDCP

Overall: 5/10. Cheapest one here, does what it came out to do, supports YUYV.

Winner: ClonerAlliance Flint 4KP for $140


  • The lesser performing ones do work a fair bit better if you run at a lower framerate (30 instead of 60)

  • Uncompressed comparisons here.

  • Set resolution to 1080p with YUYV for each card in OBS. Framerate is 60fps unless stated otherwise.

  • I am not sponsored, just a guy who wanted some answers and decided to share said answers.

Manjaro is best for older AMD cards.

I have an AMD HD 7950, got it to mine bitcoin and play games back in the day. Getting this card to work on anything that isn't manjaro is crazy hard. On Manjaro all I gotta do is add the AMD experimental features library and both Vulcan x86 and x64 Vulcan library's by doing a search for "amd" and I'm good. I had a breakthrough tonight was able to run soul calibur 6 via proton.

The future of linux gaming just keeps getting better all the time.

How come Overwatch runs much better under Linux than Window?

Not that I am complaining, I've been trying to make the switch permanent for a while now and I think it might be time.

Ryzen 5 2600x Amd 580

On Windows (latest drivers) I get about 150fps, on Manjaro (5.1 kernel) with the same settings I get about 240-300??

Only thing now is fully supporting Adaptive Sync for everything. I've gotten it running when I'm on desktop but it's buggy when running games and I don't think it's reading the active program correctly.

Does amdgpu support driver based adaptive overdrive?

Modern monitors commonly implement overdrive feature, aimed at reducing ghosting.

Overdrive increases voltages for pixels, to speed up color transitions. The level of overdrive that produces proper effects (and doesn't cause inverse ghosting by "overshooting" such transitions) is dependent on the refresh rate. Since variable refresh rate monitors (for adaptive sync) are becoming more common, some monitors started implementing adaptive overdrive, that changes based on the current refresh rate.

However I've read somewhere, that AMD implemented some kind of GPU side overdrive for monitors that don't support adaptive overdrive on their side. I.e. the driver adjusts intensity based on the refresh rate through its own means, thus compensating for the monitor's inability to do it dynamically.

Does amdgpu have anything of the sort? And if it does, how does it differentiate between monitors that have adaptive ovedrive, and ones that don't?

06/25/2019 20:25:37 CEST

I will go all in, right now. Am quite nervous but this will be fun. So many things that will need fixing.

Alright, I have taken the day to get PopOs up and running in a dual boot, just to get a feeling for it.
I have since about 2 years back only had Fedora on my laptop, but that was never my main and mostly for online stuff, so only takes around 60 minutes to get up and running fully again.

But now I will say goodbye to Windows from my tower. I will leave support for the little RGB I have, not have any drivers for my Logitech G19 keyboard and still need to figure out how to get my Philips Hue Sync to work and this is all a bit scary. But I think its time now and I will just get rid of the windows partition so that I am not tempted to get into it anymore, because srsly. No matter what distro or flavor, Linux/Gnu is just so god damn smooth and doesn't annoy me with all the fucking notifications and updates all the time.

So if here is anyone else out there thinking about it and is giving it a thought. It's not all that hard, the tutorials here are really usefull and wine and Lutris are not as complicated as they look like. Goodbye Windows.

Conspiracy Theory?

An alternative take on recent 32bit events: Firstly let me start off by stating that this is nothing but conjecture and lacks any evidence whatsoever. It is merely based on a few posts I have read recently, along with MS historical EEE philosophy.

We all know that in the last year Linux gaming has taken massive strides. Proton, Lutris, DXVK, D9VK (the new kid), Faudio and of course the daddy of them all WINE.

The rate at which these projects are continually adding support for more and more Windows games is astounding. Each update sees literally hundreds more games being playable with merely a few clicks or quick install (Lutris).

Given all of this progress, it is easy to assume that the majority of ALL .exe games will be easily available to users by the end of the year (EAC and Batlleye don't appear to be far off).

Also we have LTT and others creating serious articles supporting the whole Linux gaming ecosystem and in doing som raising awareness for Linux gaming to unprecedented levels.

Now here comes the theory part: Windows 7 (the wimdows gamers choice) is entering End Of Life at the start of next year. Many 7 users have shown an extreme reluctance to switching over to 10 (and who can blame them eh?) By this time Proton/WINE et al will pretty much be ready as a seious gaming alternative to Windows.

MS are well aware of this, so how can they try and ensure that they take as big a slice as possible of the 7 users over to 10. One way would be to derail the Linux gaming onslaught and what would have the greatest impact on Linux gaming? Simple, get our friends over at cannonical (who have the largest Linux gaming user base) to announce that they are dropping 32 bit support, right before Win 7 EOL, thus causing proton et al serious issues being able to even function on the new 64bit only distro.

However, with Valve's quick reaponse stating they will no longer be supporting or recommending. 19.10 going forward, this whole decision has come back to bite Ubuntu right in the arse.

All in all it is simply a tinfoil hat conspiracy theory, but given MS track record, I wouldn't put it past them pulling such a stunt.


P.S on a practical note: Sure there will be migration headaches for many Ubuntu gamers, but remember, we as a community are here to help you make the transition to whatever new distro you choose.

[Howto] Run Steam in a container without 32bit support

With the latest news of Ubuntu finally abandoning 32bit, there was much disinformation about the end of 32bit gaming and Steam on Ubuntu in general.

Now it seems that Ubuntu has temporarily delayed the decision. However, with OSX and Android abandoning 32bit apps, the writing is on the wall for 32bit multilib and it will be removed if not now then in 1-3 years. Further many users would prefer to purge their systems from 32bit mess or Xorg mess today.

These users can now explore running Steam in a container using steps below - assuming they are not afraid of some terminal work.

First, create the container

On archlinux

pacman -S arch-install-scripts
mkdir steam-dir
cd steam-dir
mkdir scontainer
cd scontainer
pacstrap -i -c . base

On ubuntu

Install arch-bootstrap from https://github.com/tokland/arch-bootstrap

mkdir steam-dir
cd steam-dir
mkdir scontainer
cd scontainer
arch-bootstrap scontainer

launch the container. You may wish to copy the command below to an .sh file (e.g launch.sh) and launch with sh launch.sh

cd path-to-steam-dir
systemd-nspawn \
-bD scontainer -M "scontainer" \
--volatile=no \
--bind=/dev/shm \
--bind=/dev/snd \
--bind=/dev/dri \
--bind=/dev/kvm \
--bind=/dev/input \
--bind-ro=/run/user/1000/wayland-0 \
--bind=/run/user/1000/wayland-0.lock \
--bind=/run/user/1000/ \
--bind=$PWD:/steam \
--bind=$PWD/wine:/wine \
--bind=/tmp/.X11-unix \
--setenv=DISPLAY=:0 \
--property="DeviceAllow=/dev/tty1 rwm" \
--property="DeviceAllow=/dev/dri rwm" \
--property="DeviceAllow=/dev/shm rwm" \
--property="DeviceAllow=/dev/kvm rwm" \
--property="DeviceAllow=/dev/input rwm" \
--property="DeviceAllow=/dev/dri/renderD128 rwm" \
--property="DeviceAllow=char-usb_device rwm" \
--property="DeviceAllow=char-input rwm" \
--property="DeviceAllow=char-alsa rwm" \
--property="DeviceAllow=char-drm rwm"

Once the container launches, it may ask some setup questions, press space or enter to skip these. Then, in a separate terminal

machinectl shell scontainer

Then create user

useradd user
passwd user
mkdir /home/user
chown -R user:user /home/user

Then, add a adguard dns, because systemd DNS is not working

echo "nameserver" > /etc/resolv.conf > /etc/resolv.conf

Disable useless systemd-resolved which breaks DNS. remove linux-firmware on the container

systemctl disable systemd-resolved
systemctl stop systemd-resolved
pacman -R linux linux-firmware
trust extract-compat

enable multilib and install steam, vulkan

sed -i "/\[multilib\]/,/Include/"'s/^#//' /etc/pacman.conf
pacman -Sy
pacman -S connman weston steam xorg-server-xwayland mesa  ttf-dejavu
killall dhcpcd
systemctl enable connman
systemctl start connman
pacman -S lib32-vulkan-radeon lib32-vulkan-icd-loader vulkan-radeon vulkan-icd-loader

Now, login with user user in the terminal where you launched the container first. And enter below command

echo 'weston --backend=wayland-backend.so --xwayland --fullscreen & sleep 4 && DISPLAY=:0 steam -tenfoot' > ~/.bash_profile

Enter exit and relogin. Steam should start in few seconds.

first login on steam

steam does not respect -tenfoot switch on first login after setup, and steam does not work well on xwayland/weston with the mouse. So use keyboard and the tab key, enter username/password, check remember me and enter 2FA number. Once you get to the Finish button, use another terminal from the host and kill steam. In the container, click on the terminal icon, and enter steam -tenfoot

You should see the steam in the big picture with the mouse working.

closing steam

Close normally or via machinectl poweroff scontainer.


On the host

cp -r ~/.steam steam-dir/
cp -r ~/.local/share/Steam steam-dir/

In the container

mv ~/.local/share/Steam ~/.local/share/Steam2 
mv ~/.steam ~/.steam2
ln -s /steam/Steam ~/.local/share/Steam
ln -s /steam/.steam ~/.steam

i also have the staging version of wine 4.11 and that brings me up to the game but it doesn't detect directx.

CS:GO Players, Interested in Starting a Community Map Hub/Server?

Howdy, all

I've been playing CS:GO for a long while, and I'm a big fan of a lot of community maps (Subzero, Austria, Season, etc.); they add a lot of fun to a game that is otherwise playing the same six or so maps over and over again. Subzero is probably my favorite Counter-Strike map hands down. I've been lamenting every now and then not being able to play on Mapcore's FACEIT hub, as it requires Faceit's anti-cheat client (which isn't available for GNU/Linux). It's really the only project that allows people to play community maps on GO unfortunately.

So I was wondering if any of y'all would like to join forces in starting our own hub (or just a server, but I'm not sure how that would work out) that's Linux-user-friendly. The only way to add custom maps to a hub is getting partnered with Faceit, which I cannot do on my own.

Teamfight Tactics is working in Linux

I made this comment in the /r/leagueoflinux subreddit, but figured I'd cross-post here for anyone dying to play this extremely addictive game. I'll also use this opportunity to plug Manjaro--if you haven't tried it in a while, it's far and away the best desktop Linux experience I've had in the 14 or so years I've used it. I'm thankful Canonical gave me the push to try something new. Anyway, here's how you can get it up and running:

  1. Install Manjaro.

  2. pacman -Syu

  3. Compile and install wine-lol-glibc can be found here

  4. Compile and install wine-lol can be found here

  8. Wait in queue for 8 hours

  9. Finally play!

Ace Combat 7 crashes when dualshock 4 is connected - help please!

I bought Ace Combat 7 on sale at the Humble Store a few days ago and tried to play it for the first time last night. I am playing it on Ubuntu 19.04 on Steam through Proton 4.2-7 (platinum rated on protondb), intending to use a DualShock 4 controller that Steam recognizes natively as it should and which works as it should on other games.

If my controller is turned off, the game runs fine. I even managed to finish the first mission with keyboard+mouse, but that's definitely not going to work for anything harder. However, if I have my controller connected Ace Combat crashes when I try to launch it. The splash appears and then it hangs at a black screen for a minute or two and then both Ace Combat and Steam exit. And if I turn it on after the game is running that either crashes the game or the controller gets ignored.

Any ideas what's going on and how to fix it? It's a bummer not being able to play because of this.

I am trying to switch off of Ubuntu, and looking at jumping over to Solus, as it seems to be a stable OS with rolling release. The big question I have is installing DXVK on it to use with Lutris. When I tried installing Lutris it didn't prompt me for it like it normally does on Ubuntu. Does this mean that DXVK is already installed or installed when a game is installed via the scripts? Does anyone else here use Solus for gaming? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I can't seem to find a whole lot of information on this.

VM Passthrough with Integrated Graphics?

Hi all. I have an i5-6500, which is HD 530 Integrated Graphics. I have an RX480 that I use for my gaming. However, I did a bit of digging and found that I could perhaps use the iGPU on a Virtual Machine running Windows. This isn't for any heavy gaming, but it's for running tools and software that I can't through Wine (such as the Modding Tools for A Hat in Time) and maybe some very light games that happen to not work well with Proton/WINE. I understand that the Integrated Graphics isn't all that powerful and that's fine!

From what I understand, I can use QEMU to do this. But I'm unsure where to begin. I realise it's probably not the easiest task in the world but I'd like to get a VM up and running using my iGPU while keeping my dGPU for Linux gaming. Any pointers on where to begin would be appreciated!

06/24/2019 19:04:25 CEST

Help me understand what will change with 19.10 and up, regarding to gaming.

I don't play games that needs wine or middle-ware, I only play native linux port (Rocket League, CSGO, Shovel Knight...) If Ubuntu really drop 32bits support, will the native games become unplayable or does the drop only concerns games that needs "proton" and such to run ?

G-Sync Multimonitor Issue

Hi All,

I've been researching all day and trying to find more information on this, but the posts I did find were rather old and the one or two people who claimed they got it working, never did post a solution.

Has anyone been able to get g-sync to work on Linux with the latest Nvidia drivers if you have a secondary monitor?

If it helps, I've been testing it on PopOS, the moment I disable my secondary monitor in the os, it all works. I know it has to do with the X screen and the fact that linux considers them to technically be one monitor for the purposes of flipping.

Does this issue also exist for freesync and amd cards?

popos or linux mint, for non rolling release distro, now that ubuntu is going full derp?

Personally I do prefer manjaro, but also trying to help a couple of less savvy friends move to dual booting. But with ubnutu going full derp causing even valve to drop it im not sure which os I should be recommending they look into. :/ I'm leaning towards popos but not 100% certain since mint as always been good to me too.

Ok what if Valve is hiring kwin developers because Ubuntu is dropping 32bit support and Valve wants to work with Neon?

Not so far-fetched. If I was The KDE Corporation I'd be reaching out to Valve and putting effort into keeping 32bit support in KDE Neon. Their long lasting competition with gnome would see some massive changes if a Neon/SteamOS hybrid became the defacto Linux gaming platform.

Going to be installing Linux on external usb 3.0 hard drive this week, what distro should i pick for gaming?

I'm going to be installing a Linux Distro on my external usb 3.0 toshiba 1 TB hard drive this week, however after the ubuntu crisis with 32 bit libraries, i don't know what distro to pick anymore. Usually i'd pick a flavour of ubuntu or linux mint but i don't really want to pick those anymore.

So what are my options now? i'm a bit scared of Manjaro and Arch Based distros because i'm used to using sudo apt install, and using apt in the terminal. I don't know any arch terminal commands :/

Anyway i'm excited to use Linux, can't wait to play Team Fortress 2 and Half Life 2 again, but with Linux :)

Also, does anyone know if Quake works on Linux? i have the GOG Version of Quake 2.. and what about Logmein Hamachi? for LAN games.

Try StreamPi for those that can't run OBS Studio on *nix

I created a project called "StreamPi" that originally started when fed up with OBS's OpenGL requirements preventing me from streaming or recording on older hardware, so I started to make my software. It started out on the Raspberry Pi of all things and was therefore called "StreamPi." However, not having the greatest frame rate, I moved on to more beefier but older hardware made about ten years ago and continued the project (command-line only at this point) and could get 15-20ish fps on 2008 laptops and netbooks. I then later kicked it up a notch by finally creating a GUI (Graphical User Interface) version. You can find videos of the GUI version here https://peertube.mastodon.host/videos/watch/5c6cbf16-2a86-4434-875b-067067a2ba6b and here https://www.bitchute.com/video/MM2YcMYnqldc/.

My friends and I just released our very first game, and it's made from the ground up with FOSS tools.

Hey all!

Long time lurker, and Linux Gamer/User.

Anyway, my friends and I just released our very first game! And we made not just Linux, but Open Source a top priority! We used GoDot, Blender, Audacity, etc. I really just cobbled together shitty code, but I can try to answer any questions as best I can, or ask my other two friends who worked on the project. I'm definitely not an expert, as this is my first project like this of any kind.

We also released a fully rigged 3D model (with more on the way).

Our game is called `Segmentation_Fault`.

Segmentation_Fault is a simple walking simulator with a subtle eerie story unfolding as the player navigates the depths of a cave in an attempt to record and gain understanding of what happened to their expedition team.

Anyway, here's a trailer for the game that makes it look way cooler than the actual like...>10 minutes of game play that it is -- https://youtu.be/OFIK-v2ZZhE
https://newyearstudios.itch.io/segmentation-fault -> Here's a link to the itch store page. (You can just click "Download Now" then say "No Thanks, take me to the downloads.") I'm not here to rattle my cup at anyone.

https://www.newyearstudios.com/ -> Here's a link to our site that also has some assets and will have the other stuff we put out.

And of course, here's the source code if you wanna check it out yourself: https://gitlab.com/newyearstudios/ritual-jam

Critical Feedback is welcome! Again -- first project like this, so tear it apart, ya know? We learned a *LOT* and there are definitely things we'll be doing differently in our next project. :)

Hope you all enjoy, I'll pass any feedback onto my friends as well. :)

Lutris and Wine not working on league of legends/Steam games

Hi everyone, i recently installed Arch on my pc, so far im really happy with it. But, Lutris is not working. The problem is, when i change the runner from default (Linux) to Wine-staging, League just wont start again, and if change it back to Linux, it wont work either. Steam games wont work too. Im new to this whole gaming on linux (though i have experience on Linux, as i work as an IT and manage multiple linux servers+i took a linux sysadmin/sysengineer course, so i don't get what i have to do so i can make my games work on wine.

Mac Borderlands Pre-Sequel Pulled from sale and why it matters on Linux

On Steam, Aspyr pulled from sale the Mac version of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel because they won't be able to meet the September deadline for 64-bit support. If you go to the page on Steam you can see the Mac icon and Mac is missing under System Requirements. This is from the Aspyr Discord:


While it still looks like the game is still installable based on steamdb.info, if you already own it. Why does this matter on Linux? Because if distros end 32-bit multi-lib support then we could see similar things happen on Linux. And there's no guarantee that game companies would spend the time to port their games to 64-bit. We've seen similar situations where games do support Linux in some fashion, but from the Steam page they appear as unsupported. This makes it harder for Linux gamers to find Linux games and be assured that games are supported & will work on Linux.

Manjaro Nvidia Driver Switching Hell

Experienced Debian server admin, finally got round to dual booting Manjaro and Windows to try and move to full stack Linux.

Switching Nvidia Drivers to 'nonfree' using the GUI interface (and then terminal after in hope) and just getting the black screen issue after reboot where I get no desktop but can tty. (Completely new install, updated full, and rebooted before attempting the driver switch)

Non of the googled answers seem conclusive, it more looks like a stream of people who asked questions, getting no where and gave up. Considering doing the same.

Is this really what I should expect, I assume there's Manjaro Nvidia users out there using the non free drivers right?

My way of getting Overwatch to launch automatically in Lutris

After an entire night of experimenting, googling, and procrastinating on Cloud Security homework, I figured out one way of getting Overwatch to launch automatically when battlenet opens rather than having to click the play button. This is specifically for Lutris use but I suppose it would work in other cases too.

I made a file called Overwatch.bat that I put in the same directory as battlenet, and it contains:

`start Battle.net.exe

PING localhost -n 4 >NUL

start Battle.net.exe --exec="launch Pro"`

Then set "Overwatch.bat" as the executable in in Lutris.

The ping is to produce some kind of delay in between the executions. SLEEP and TIMEOUT didn't work, but that did. I do know you can detect executables running when you do batch files in normal Windows but I don't think that works in Wine. I tried a looping script that did something like that and it just launched battlenet over and over and over again because it couldn't detect Overwatch running.

You might need to extend the ping duration depending on how long it takes for your battlenet to launch? I'm not sure though. As long as the first one even gets to launch at all. The issue I seemed to be running into is when using start, the bottom one took priority.

You might also want to add "start.exe" to "exclude processes."

Works for other blizzard games too, that's just the only one I play. :p

With Ubuntu dropping support for 32 bits, what would be the ideal gaming distro?

Ubuntu is not supporting 32 bit libraries anymore and Steam already said they won't be supporting Ubuntu (from 19.10 onwards). This is an issue because lots of games are 32 bits.

Ubuntu has been an ideal distro for its ease of use and enormous community. But now that it isn't anymore, which distro would you guys recommend for the average (Linux) Joe?

Here I'll describe my use case, but I'd would also like if you guys could give more general answers so other people can benefit from this post. I'm a student and developer, dipping my toes on many fields. Although I'm a Linux enthusiast I'm not that well versed on it and I value above all else stability and not having to fiddle with stuff to have basic things working (although I love problem solving sometimes I just don't have the time). I game very occasionally, so when I do I prefer to have things just working (but still I prefer to avoid Windows to the max).

It takes 1 minute for this piece of junk just to open Firefox, so naturally, not a lot of games will run on it. I was thinking maybe Dwarf Fortress could work, but I'm still worried it'll burn the CPU.

One final thing, I'm mostly looking for free games. I hope I can get some suggestions!

Non-native games, but supported through Wine, DXVK, Steam Proton, etc.

How do you feel about games which do not have a native Linux version, but that are actively supported by the developers so that they run fine under Wine, DXVK, Steam Proton, etc.?

On one hand, I prefer that engines move to Vulkan and offer native builds. On the other, I also think that developers that give at least some support to their games running through some layer of abstraction is better than nothing, since it helps players that want to migrate.

There is also another angle I have been giving some thought: given how well Wine and friends work nowadays, having a single build for a game may end up working better than a bad port done for PR reasons... Specially if they use a different graphics API than the main Windows build.

Cool things that VALVe could do with their own desktop distribution

Just dreaming..., some features are possible now but as a official feature it could be much easier and secure than now:

-Steam Link App/hardware would boot your PC without security risks via internet (you will be able to send your security credentials via streaming and your PC will be locked in local access).

-Steam Input/Overlay would work with everything out of the box (and you will be able to introduce your login credentials with a controller).

-An "Sleep mode" would download games an updates.

-Steam mobile app would manage notifications about download and update games and system when you are at work and update your PC without stay there.

-Boot with SteamVR, finally an OS that doesn't need desktop interactions to start a VR environment.

-Proton by default, easier setup for windows non steam apps.

-Easiest Gaming OS of the world.

What about your dreaming features?

RGB control for laptop keyboard?

after using Pop_OS for a day the rgb on my laptop's keyboard started to mess up. the keys were just blue, but now the rgb is turned off until i press a key and then the pressed key and the surrounding keys have that weird rainbow effect .-.

It's really annoying, and until this point i didn't really care for RGB, but now i have to change it.

I Tried CKB-NExt but it just says that "no devices connected" - maybe it's because it's on the bulit-in laptop keyboard, is there any workaround that?

What are your thoughts on Valve and what their plans going forward will be?

This is a really crucial and yet excited time for Linux Gaming even with all the 32bit drama going on - there is room for excitement.

Especially when you look at Valve and see what their plans could be going forward.

I'm really hoping Steam either gets behind OpenSuse or Solus.

I really like the idea of Steam getting behind Solus which is built from the ground up and Valve could help build Solus up even more. Solus would be the perfect OS to build Steam around in my own opinion anyway.

What are your thoughts?

Black Mesa Issues

I just did a fresh install and when I click "play" it goes to the logo and loading screen then exits back to the desktop.

Anyone else having the same issue?

I'm running Solus with latest Mesa drivers for my rx580 and using Steam Beta client.

Our game is Bite The Bullet. A run and gun side scroller where you eat defeated enemies to gain power

We have designed it with Windows,Mac,Linux in mind and are currently looking for anyone interested in testing it out and fill out a short survey.

You will be provided with a steam key. All we ask is that you don't stream or post any content of its content online. We are also offering a little gift as thanks for people who take the time to do this. Message me if interested!

How do you feel about valve's decision to drop ubuntu support?

I am a windows user but i keep track of Linux gaming often..

Now that canonical have basically screwed themselves with their decision to remove 32-bit libraries, and now that valve are also dropping support of ubuntu. It's sad for ubuntu but it's also exciting because valve's new recommended distro is going to create an increase in popularity of "the chosen distro". which likely could be openSUSE....

It's also a good time to move on from ubuntu i guess since it's been the recommended distro for a long time now, a good time to give the throne to another distro.

Which open source real time strategy is the most prohibitively complex with a mercilessly competitive fanbase and unsolved constantly evolving metagame?

As openage is not yet fully implimented and playable yet afaik, and Age of Empires II is the only reason I still have Microsofts Monster inhabiting the dark reaches of my hard drive, I am looking for a more Debian way to feed my lamewalling addiction.

I have very briefly looked into Openra, 0 ad, megaglest, and Battle for Wesnoth but I know nothing of the games or their communities.

current JRPGs?

Hi, all. I've been reading around and found a number of old posts with suggestions for JRPGs on Linux, but I'm hoping to find some more current suggestions. I'm looking for things like the older Final Fantasy series, Dragon Warrior/Quest, Xenogears, Suikoden, that type of thing, and preferably FOSS - or at least free. I really have very little time for gaming these days, so I'd be playing very intermittently.

I found some recommendations in old posts - some several years old; a couple are still in the Mint repository but for the others I can't find a ton of info and am trying to get away from the Windows mindset of installing random software from the Internet. ;) Here's what I've found:

  • OpenMW (in the repo)
  • Wesnoth (in the repo - more like Final Fantasy Tactics?)
  • Mana World
  • KQ
  • Exit Fate (similar to Suikoden? can't find much about it)

Anyone know anything about the ones I've listed that aren't in the repo, or have any other 2019 suggestions?

Edit: typos

[Discussion] Could/should Steam OS move towards Manjaro/Arch?

With Ubuntu dropping support for 32bit architecture and Valve developer Pierre-Loup Griffais tweeting that "Ubuntu 19.10 and future releases will not be supported by Steam", I got to wonder if they couldn't or shouldn't base Steam OS and it's games on Manjaro or simply Arch Linux.

Steam games that run on GNU/Linux still show Ubuntu 14.04 LTS as a minimal requirement, since valve has selected it as it's "base" for development. That is a considerably old distribution and installing up-to-date drivers in Ubuntu is not nearly as easy as on Manjaro.

So I'm thinking: could valve start using Manjaro or Arch Linux as it's "base" for software development? Do you think that would be a good/viable idea? Does any of the things I just said make any sense at all?

I'm still a noob when it comes to gaming (I've mostly just played valve games) and I'd like to get the opinion of people who actually understand something about this.

How I set up multiple users to access the same Wine prefixes using Lutris as a game manager

This was born out of my two Sons desire to play Battlefield 4 (one on the test range only because of his age!) and my Daughters' desire to play Kerbal Space Program, amongst other things. I've done this for a total of five users. I'm currently using Ubuntu 19.04 after upgrading from 18.04 LTS through 18.10.

As most know, it's difficult to get multiple users sharing a Wine install and after reading up a lot this is how I've achieved it. The great advantage is each user can access all the games without having to have a separate Wine prefix for each user taking up huge amounts of storage space. Imagine having to have 5 installs of Battlefield 4! My Wine Prefix for Origin only to play BF4 without any DLC is 40.1GB!

On this setup I have a secondary SSD alongside my primary SSD with the Linux install, the secondary one literally only contains the Games folder you see. With how things are plugged in and how they've been assigned, my Primary drive/partition is /dev/sdb2 and this secondary games only drive/partition is /dev/sda1. These should changed accordingly to your drive/partition layout.

# add group games_access: (technically not necessary but it's good for uniformity)

sudo groupadd -g 1337 games_access

- creates a new user group to help define ownership later

# add each user to the new group:

sudo usermod -G games_access -a $user$

- adds each user to the new group we just created

# Create the following folders (move your Wine prefixes into "Wines")

sudo mkdir /mnt/sda1/Games
sudo mkdir /mnt/sda1/Games/Wines/
sudo mkdir /mnt/sda1/Games/Lutris/.config/lutris
sudo mkdir /mnt/sda1/Games/Lutris/.local/share/lutris

- we're creating the folder structure required to organise our lutris settings, wine prefixes etc.

# Run Lutris once on any user and use the name of that user in the following two lines:

sudo mv /home/$user$/.config/lutris /mnt/sda1/Games/Lutris/.config/lutris
sudo mv /home/$user$/.local/share/lutris /mnt/sda1/Games/Lutris/.local/share/lutris

- moves the configuration files for lutris from the user profile to the new folder structure on the other drive.

# For each user:

# You could go into root to set this up, as long as you also "chown /home/$user$/.config/lutris" and "chown /home/$user$/.local/share/lutris" afterwards

ln -s /mnt/sda1/Games/Lutris/.config/lutris /home/$user$/.config/lutris
ln -s /mnt/sda1/Games/Lutris/.local/share/lutris /home/$user$/.local/share/lutris

- now every user has the same Lutris settings

# Add the following lines to sudoers (one pair of lines per user):

sudo vim /etc/sudoers

$user$     ALL=(games_user)        NOPASSWD:ALL
$user$     ALL = NOPASSWD: /bin/chmod, /bin/chown

- this part is necessary for the next part, otherwise the next part does not work at all.

# in each "/home/$user$/.profile" add:

sudo chown -R $user$:games_access /mnt/sda1/Games
sudo chmod -R g+s /mnt/sda1/Games
sudo chmod -R 755 /mnt/sda1/Games

- this will take ownership of the Games folder on the secondary drive when a user logs in, allowing Wine to work correctly.

# Log out of any/every user (possibly a restart is best)

# Pick any user to log in and set up your Wine prefixes in /mnt/sda1/Games/Wines and modify any existing games in Lutris to point to the new folder in /mnt/sda1/Games/

# Try to prevent multiple users being logged in at the same time to prevent a clash of ownership

# on the Games folder, I've noticed wine games tend to crash anyway when switching users.

# The amazing thing is when each user plays a game, wine automatically sets up a windows style user

# that has their own personal saves etc. This may not apply to some games, I know Kerbal Space

# Program doesn't but each user can still create their own save/profile.

This is now working very well, everyone can play all the games without a problem. I need to check and maybe tackle Steam itself for a few others and if I do need to tackle those games, it's pretty much the same method as this (I'd create a Steam folder in Games and take it from there). I'd love to turn this into a script so if I ever have to do a full reinstall I can quickly return everything back to normal.

If you have any recommendations on improving this I'm completely open to implementing it.

How is gaming on a Windows vm?

Ive been meaning to fully kick my desktop to Linux, but a couple of lutris garbage rated games are holding me back. Think Im ready to just ditch it for good, but I am curious how well do the games perform on Linux on a Windows VM, does anyone do this?

Preferably with pass through/low latency, if you know one.

I have an Elgato HD 60pro (which had kinda crappy latency, so I used Passthrough), but I got it months before I went to Linux. Now that I'm here, I have this dilemma!

Under $200 would be nice.

Overwatch stuttering

tldr; overwatch studders for me, i don't know why

My background is 15+ years linux administration, but linux desktop gaming is new to me. I switched over after hearing that getting banned on Overwatch is a thing of the past. I'm a FPS junkie, and Overwatch scratches my itch after growing up on TF2.

I've followed the lutris overwatch guides. I've disabled compositing and went down to Low settings and 75% render scale. And I'm still getting some stuttering to the tune of maybe half a sec to a full second during a game. Is anyone else getting the same? What have you done to get a smooth experience? When it's not stuttering, I'm getting 160-170 fps. Are others able to set a resolution higher than Low and maintain smooth gaming?

Specs below:

  • OS: Manjaro 18.0.4
  • Kernel: 5.1.8-1
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700
  • MEM: 16G
  • GPU: AMD RX580 4G
  • HD: SSD EVO 850
  • DE: KDE/plasma 5.15.5
  • lutris
  • wine-staging 4.9-1

EDIT: To install Overwatch, I used the installer from the Lutris site. It installed flawlessly.

Shout-out to Steam &amp;&amp; question about Shadowrun: Dragonfall

I'd like to give a shout-out to Steam. A few days ago I bought Dragonfall on GOG and have been playing ever since. Today I noticed it was on sale on Steam, alongside other games in the series. I actually bought it again (alongside Hong Kong) just so I could have it on Steam and replay through there next time. I kind of hated buying via GOG. Since they don't really care about me, I feel much better.


Now, onto my question. I spent karma kind of badly early game. I wonder if I should restart from the beginning and make something better (also chose another class since it doesn't matter which I choose, all the models look ugly, and choose a better etiquette). I think I'm about to start the Aztechnology mission, is this close to endgame? Is it better to just finish it as is?

Fedora for a gaming PC

Noticed more and more traction for Fedora as a gaming distro. Not very familiar with it (I've used Debian and Arch based distros only over the last ten years).

Favourite things about Linux Gaming or Linux in general?

I'm feeling pretty wholesome right now so I feel like sharing some of my favourite things about Linux gaming. What things do you guys love about gaming on Linux? Some of my favourite things include:

The beauty and elegance of a modern OS. Windows 10 even to this day is bloated and old, Windows 10 contains relics like the group policy editor and other things like the Control Panel which clash with the newer Metro Apps and Powershell which are all newer ideas slapped on top of legacy code leading to a clash of UI paradigms and styles that are not appealing at all. If you compare the modern design of GNOME, the powerful features of KDE or the simplicity of XFCE to Windows there is no comparison. The archaic patchwork design of Windows is nothing compared to the well thought out elegant design of Linux DEs and interfaces.

The control you get. If a program misbehaves in Windows you are left fighting with the System over what to do with it, often it will continue hanging or in some cases force a system reboot. With Linux you are the master of the machine and you ultimately are in control. If a program of game malfunctions you can choose to kill it, debug it or end it. With Linux you are the one who owns the Computer you are not bargaining with it to delay updates or install unwanted software, the Computer is a tool for you to use and not get in your way.

The flexibility of Linux is amazing, if you want your system to be a gaming rig or a server you can do it all on the same OS. With a large amount of large packages available to create myriad of configurations the sky's the limit with any Linux box. Want to make a lean lightweight server? Don't install X and just install the components YOU WANT! Want to create a powerful gaming rig with a ton of emulators, games and libraries ready to play a ton of games from a range of systems well install those! From a tiny raspberry pi to a monster gaming rig, Linux will suit the hardware.

Lutris running everything is so much more convenient than having like 5 launchers for games, while they still exist you can just hide then in background and run them all through Lutris. Having your Steam games, Dolphin ROMs, native games and configured wine prefixes in one location is really nice and with the install scripts is so simple and really shows how brilliant the community is!

Linux has less overhead . When you run Linux on a PC it feels right. It just feels better and less encumbered. Even moving the mouse feels better. Less junk like telemetry, Candy Crush updates and services that are scouring your disks make the PC feel better. The more lightweight nature of Linux allows for OS to get out of the way and let you focus on what you want to do instead of the OS wasting it all. This has a great impact on games as they are able to take advantage of the hardware instead of fighting with the OS over what to use.

The talent and dedication of the people willing to contribute is inspiring. Linux gaming would be nothing without the amazing people who dedicate their time and effort to making Linux gaming viable. Wine devs, emulator devs and guys behind Lutris are all legends who have all made Linux gaming what it is and nothing like what I could've imagined years ago. People like this inspire me to carry on no-matter how easier it may be to switch to Windows and sacrifice my freedom for convenience. The people who put in the effort for Linux gaming always make me realize that there will always be an audience and no matter how hard it is to game in Linux there will always be people willing to do it, and in the end isn't that what Linux is about? The community?

This is just a few things I love about Linux and love to hear what other people enjoy about gaming on Linux and Linux in general.

Force specific GPU in vulkan applications/games

I two GPUs, one rx470 and one vega64. For DXVK and OpenGL I've figured out how to force which GPU to use, but not for native applications or games like Mad Max with vulkan. Anyone know if it is possible if the game itself doesn't support changing which GPU to use? Vkinfo shows the rx470 with ID 0 and the vega with ID 1. Distro is Opensuse Tumbleweed with Mesa 19.1.0.

Unity 3D games seem to be performing better under Wine for me than natively.

My laptop is fairly weak when it comes to gaming. Here are the specs:

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHz
GPU: Mesa DRI Intel(R) HD Graphics 620 (Kaby Lake GT2)
DRI: Mesa 19.1.0

I tried native and Windows versions of two games from GOG:

  • Return of the Obra Dinn
  • Epistory: Typing Chronicles

With Obra Dinn, I get better frame rate under Wine. With Epistory, the frame rates are similar but the rendering looks much better under Wine+d9vk.

Has anyone had similar experiences?

Phantasy Start Online 2

Hello everyone! After the announcement of PSO2 at E3 for the NA release of PSO2, I've really been itching to play. Last time I played PSO2 it was on W10 a few years ago. I'm trying to get it working in WINE/Lutris but am running into this error:

Unhandled Exception: System.InvalidProgramException: Invalid IL code in .: (string[]): IL_002a: call 0x0600058e

[ERROR] FATAL UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: System.InvalidProgramException: Invalid IL code in .: (string[]): IL_002a: call 0x0600058e

2019-06-21 11:51:24,900: Unable to read stat for process 16940 2019-06-21 11:51:24,901: Unable to read stat for process 16940 All children gone Exit with returncode 0

Now this is a Japanese game that has a pretty huge NA community which resulted in some people making a English game manager that will download the game for you, install all of the prerequisites, and apply the english patch to it. I saw another thread where someone got the same error a few years ago but there was no real solution besides running passthrough in a VM. I figure since its been a few years and WINE has seen progress that maybe someone could assist me in getting this to run? The error was given on Wine 4.9.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

PSA: enable __GL_MaxFramesAllowed = 1

I did this and it substantially increased my FPS in many games on my Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050. Pretty much inline with Windows now in performance which is awesome! before FPS would hover around 30 and no matter what setting i changed in game it would the same. now when i lower settings in games the FPS jumps up significantly (depending on the settings of course) and higher settings are more playable now. example: dirt 3 i could barely run 50 FPS at ultra 1080p with 2xMSAA. now i can run full 60FPS ultra 1080p with 4xMSAA, 8xMSAA has some frame drops but its much better than 20 FPS i would get before!

Dota Underlords and Vulkan

As most already know, Dota Underlords only supports Vulkan on Linux. That's a great thing for us in general but for those that use a low end intel igpu that usually means no support. In this case it's no text, just blank boxes.

As luck has it, adding this PPA fixes the issue and the game now runs pretty well considering.

Steps in terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

After those steps I recommend restarting your pc. Enjoy the game :)

Can't play Dauntless (or some other game on the Epic Games Store) since the store client got an update? Here's the solution!

So there I was, minding my own business, enjoying the hell out of Dauntless, when Epic pushed an update for the store that broke Lutris compatibility. What jerks! Anyway, let's get it working again.

All thanks go to Lutris user dermeister, who posted these steps in the comments. The long and short of it is that you need .NET 4.8. If you dig around your version of winetricks, you'll probably notice that it's not there. Never fear. (Note that the rest of these instructions assume that you're running the Epic Games Store through Lutris with the default settings from that install script.)

Run the following two commands:

wget  https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks
chmod +x winetricks

This will make a shell script in your home directory called "winetricks". Now we just run this command:

env WINEPREFIX=/epic-games-store WINE=/home//.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/ge-protonified-4.9-x86_64/bin/wine /home//winetricks dotnet48

This installer will say you need to reboot your computer, but that's for crazy Windows users. You just need to launch the Epic Games Store from your Lutris window as always, and it should work now.

Here's a thought: "Use native binaries" should be a compatibility tool option in Steam

Lots of older games had their source code released and have community-made Linux ports available. Some games, like Unreal Tournament, shipped official Linux binaries with retail copies but not on Steam. It would be nice to be able to configure the Steam versions of these games to run user-provided native binaries rather than running them in Proton.

KungFu panda showdown legendary legends--- and KungFu panda: The Game

I finally got the game to work in Windows10. I have no idea where these settings are for Wine, or which ones are needed or not. On steam it looks like people are running into issues running it.

I got it to run with: Windows 7 compatibility, reduced color (8bit or 256 colors) 640/480 and as admin (superuser in unix speak)

Supposedly you can also change a registery key but it wasn't showing up for me might be a 64 vs 32 bit thing:


Sufficed to say someone that knows the Mysteries of Wine settings and speaks Wine (the emulator not the drink) can help can translate that to the WINE equivilants. It might make the game work! Hopefully I have the energy to set up Ubuntu tomorrow to try.

It's a fun brawler IMO.

--KungFu Panda-- the game.

For anyone wanting to try this neet gem of a game. I used lutris for the initial set up. It might complain about several legacy libraries: Dx9(2005 version as I recall) MSVisual Scripting. I simply pointed lutris at those, and the game worked. I only did part of the first level. However, for some reason the controlls were litteraly backwards as in left turned pow to the right and right turned him to the left and I think normal space bar press didn't do any thing while holding it down briefly he'd jump. I haven't a clue if that's a WINE-staging bug or part of the game, or something else.

Hope this helps people enjoy some surprisingly well done movie to game...uh games?

WINE: Modded Oblivion skin textures are missing in recent Ubuntu 18.04 update. Workaround is here.

Heads up, updating Ubuntu borked skin textures in Oblivion (modded) I'm not sure yet exactly which mod is affected or which update caused this, but after using winetricks to install d3dx9_27 the textures appear correctly again. I can say it does not have to do with WINE or nVidia (also tested that it affects Intel IGP) but some other Linux graphics library or rendering subsystem. I hope to discover exactly what is causing this and what mod is affected (my guess is Oblivion Character Overhaul)

FFXIV/GW2: Any info on group content performance on Linux distros?

I tried searching for threads like this but didn't find anything.

I'm very tempted to start using Pop!_OS, but some concerns are holding me back. I find videos of both GW2 and FFXIV running on Linux based distros that are recent and use DXVK (or D9VK in GW2's case) with good performance, which is great! But these videos (or stream archives) never really showcase endgame group content performance.

Is there anyone on here that play one of these games, or similar ones like LOTRO or WOW, and can tell me if the endgame group content has good performance as well?

Thanks in advance and sorry if this is similar to other threads that I didn't notice!

Battlefield 1 and POE unplayable.

Hi everyone,

Im running anteregos and an r9 390 and lutris. I will say I don't have much experience with linux but I'm about ready to give up attempting to game on it.

I've installed battlefield 1 via the lutris installer but as soon as I launch the game i get an directxerror. Configuration does show enable dxvk blue. I've installed vulkan radeon as well as mesa but as I was learning I might have installed other drivers that conflict but dont know how to check or what exactly I need.

Potentially related to the driver issue I can play POE but it experiences a reduction to what looks like horrible resolution graphics when theres any activity as well as in town. I tried following the process to install the patched dxvk but inside configuration the folder I created doesnt appear and enable dxvk option is greyed out and even if I enable and save when I return its greyed out as well.

Hope someone can help as Im on my last leg.

A native release is supposedly planned, but this would be a good opportunity to try the game, and maybe even play online if we can find an EAC-disabled server:

Interesting note: there is also a protected "NWI Internal Linux Test Server" listed on this server browser.

When I try to run the game, i get error "No compatible graphics hardware was found (0xE0070160)". I have folowed all the steps that requiered to run the game, as also instaling any possibly necessary drivers.

I've tried everything to fix it, but from the log I can see that the problem is on Vulkan/GPU.

I am running:

Pop!_OS 19.04
Intel Core i5 4440 3.1GHz

Amd Radeon R9 270x

8gb RAM

Ubuntu is going to remove ALL 32 bit support, even for libraries and multiarch. This would kill hundreds of thousands of games and apps. We need to show to Canonical that we don't want this!


If they go through with this, many of your favorite Steam apps and games will simply cease to work because of the lack of libraries. This will KILL ubuntu, and unless there is a suitable userfriendly distro, it will kill linux gaming and slow-halt the adoption of Linux. We need to band together!

I'm about install wine on Manjaro, but when I look for "wine" on the pamac repository it shows me two options:

wine 4.9-1

What exactly AWS game server does?

I'm making a game (FPS) and managed to do the client side on my engine. Now i need Authorized Server software to communicate, basically send and receive my game data while players are playing. i heard about AWS and went to their website for read more about it.

But unfortunately, due to super messy website layout and super mega products, i got lost so fast and i couldn't find my solution. That's why I'm asking here.

So are they only host (let say IF i make) my own server program OR they have game server(API) for different game styles to rent and Host?

Sell me on Linux gaming

I've probably gone back and forth a dozen times since windows 8 launched on switching wholesale over to Linux. The one thing holding me back, gaming support.

Lately I've been hearing, reading and watching articles about gaming on linux being in the best state it's been in... basically ever. From those that actually do it, is this true?

Gaming library wise, I've got a decent size steam library and most of my stuff on GOG has Linux support. MMO's are typically of the City of Heroes, Star Trek Online and The Old Republic variety. I don't really expect them to run outta the box, and I'm willing to put in the effort to try and get them working.

Hardware wise, I've got: i5-7600K w/Corsair H100i v2, Vega64, Freesync monitor, Xbox one controller and a Corsair RGB keyboard (K55).

The corsair hardware under linux in the past have given me problems with fan controls and getting the RGB to work.

Anyway, sell me on linux!

Ubuntu DROPS i386 support, and with it, Steam and hundreds of apps wont work. We need to fix this.

This is a massive fucking shame. This could well kill linux gaming and the recent turn of support of linux. I liked ubuntu and used it, But you know what, Now, FUCK YOU, CANONICAL, FOR RUINING IT. I am so fucking annoyed right now. Why the FUCK do they have to do this? There is no goddamn reason. We need to band together as a COMMUNITY and TELL CANONICAL TO FIX THIS. Not because we like Ubuntu, but because it affects linux support. Do you REALLY think devs are going to bother porting, now that 32 bit isn't even supported for the biggest linux distro? We need to tell canonical that THEY ARE MAKING A BAD DECISION. AND WE NEED TO FIX THIS. Or else, Linux gaming is fucking dead. https://www.change.org/p/canonical-canonical-dont-remove-32-bit-support-in-the-next-version-of-ubuntu Sign this petition, and tweet to ubuntu, and start a riot on the Ubuntu forums.

No Mans Sky on Wine Staging 4.10?

So, I am playing No Mans Sky on Wine Staging 4.10, on Ubuntu 18.04(Mint 19.1) on a laptop with 16GB of RAM, and I am using a Radeon HD 8970M GPU.

I'm going back to ArchLinux in the next few days, I am wondering, has anyone else played NMS on ArchLinux, and is there any performance increase to be had by switching?

I am thinking of enabling Gallium Nine, will this affect anything?

Apart from my own feeling that KDE Plasma is generally snappier than Cinnamon, is there anything that I can do on Arch that will increase my gaming performance any?

Laptop recommendations? (Risk of Rain 2 focused)


  • I would like to showcase Risk of Rain 2; with all settings maxed out. I'll play other games but I want RoR2 to shine.
  • Laptop should run very cool with no melting of my "boys." I'm willing to pay a little extra for the coolness.
  • No number pad! This is what takes System76 out of the running.
  • No loud fans if possible. I realize in some cases fan noise may be necessary just not obnoxiously so.
  • Everyone wants good battery life, but as long as most of the requirements are met I'm willing to deal with meh battery life.

I'm open to suggestions but I'll likely go with PopOS 19.04 on this one.

Cooler Master Devastator 2 / Other Keyboards' Backlight Working In Linux (Enabling Scroll Lock)

Ever since I got this gaming keyboard its bugged me that you can't turn on the LED backlight in Linux. I can't even read the keys at night. Finally it occurred to me that the entire backlight is essentially the LED indicator light for the scroll lock key, which would normally just be a small light. If there's no indicator light, it means scroll lock doesn't work in Linux, which makes sense because [no one even uses it.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dmeC_fRGCU). That's actually why they chose it to control the backlight. It's a key with an LED indicator that no one uses. Why not expand that into a backlight for the whole keyboard?


This should work for any keyboard with a backlight controlled with Scroll Lock. This works in my Ubuntu based distro and may or may not work in others.

Look for an empty keyboard modifier slot, which will probably be "mod3"

xmodmap -pm

Which will return something like this:

xmodmap:  up to 4 keys per modifier, (keycodes in parentheses):

shift       Shift_L (0x32),  Shift_R (0x3e)
lock        Caps_Lock (0x42)
control     Control_L (0x25),  Control_R (0x69)
mod1        Alt_L (0x40),  Alt_R (0x6c),  Meta_L (0xcd)
mod2        Num_Lock (0x4d)
mod4        Super_L (0x85),  Super_R (0x86),  Super_L (0xce),  Hyper_L (0xcf)
mod5        ISO_Level3_Shift (0x5c),  Mode_switch (0xcb)

Alright, since mod3 is empty, assign Scroll lock to it:

xmodmap -e "add mod3 = Scroll_Lock"

If that works, we still need to make this a permanent change, otherwise you'd need to run those commands every time you log in. We need to modify the file /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/us. It's a good idea to back it up first. This assumes you're using the US keyboard layout. Modify the file that corresponds to your specific layout.

Find the section that starts with xkb_symbols "basic" {. After the last line that starts with "key" add a new line:

modifier_map Mod3 { Scroll_Lock };

That's all I had to do to get it working, but you may also need to clear a cache like this:

sudo rm -f /var/lib/xkb/*

Linux Gaming (and general utility) Laptop Recommendations

I'm looking to get a laptop that plays nice with Linux. I've got a budget of about $1,300. Do you guys have any recommendations on the choice of laptop and OS? Here are some of things I'm looking for:

  • Linux Compatibility: Obviously. Does it play nice with Linux? How many extra hoops will I have to jump through to get Linux to run on it?
  • Good CPU and GPU (Basically, able to run relatively recent, computationally-complex games on High graphical setting. I've heard good things about AMD GPUs but everything I've come across features Nvidia because of course it does.)
  • Decent RAM: Not really sure what a good minimum is, but it should definitely have the option to upgrade
  • Hard Drive: At least 1 TB HDD, 128 to 256 SSD. I want to be able to hold all of my important data on this computer, then back it up to another HDD as needed.
  • Modularity/Long-lasting: I'm looking for something that's upgrade-able and decently durable. I'd like to be able to use it more than three years from now.
  • At least 3 USB ports

I don't care about:

  • Fancy Decals: I don't need to brag to the world that "I'm Such A Gamer Fortnite 420 LoL XD My Eyes, How They Bleed XD"
  • Any resolution beyond 1920x1080
  • Size, beyond not being unreasonably tiny
  • Speakers: I use headphones

Not mandatory, but nice:

  • Decent battery life
  • Won't turn into a volcano in my lap
  • Backlit keyboard
  • A keyboard that doesn't move the keys around drastically, or cause me to constantly fat-finger the touchpad
  • Can be opened and cleaned easily

I copied the format of this post to write this out, and a lot of my preferences are similar to theirs.

Manjaro and Steam Link audio question

Using Linux Manjaro and Steam link, having an issue where the audio plays on both the PC and TV the Steam Link is on. I have "play on host machine" unchecked.

Two audio sources I see on my host machine, "Playback Sources" and "Capture Sources". Muting the "playback sources" gets rid of all audio on both host and TV, while muting "Capture sources" mutes the TV and plays on the host machine (opposite of what I want....)

Any advice?

Why is the Linux gaming community sabotaging itself? (Codeweavers, DXVK)

Hi All,

I've been using Linux exclusively for both work (I'm a web developer) and gaming (including some VR gaming) since mid-2017, and I've been simply blown away by how much easier it is for people to started with Linux gaming.

With Steamplay/Proton and Lutris, I have access to a huge catalog of games. Even VR gaming is accessible, Skyrim VR runs really well (although I did need to compile FAudio with WMA support).

Combined with Google Stadia coming down the pike, and I think we're really ramping up to a "golden age" for Linux gaming.

So my question is this: why the heck is the Wine team going to reinvent the wheel when DXVK (and now D9VK) already exist?! It doesn't appear to make any sense whatsoever, as it will just create more fragmentation, and more confusion for folks wanting to try out Linux gaming. Valve is sticking with DXVK for the foreseeable future, and therefore most games will most likely be played using DXVK. I personally think DXVK is incredible, and opened up tremendous possibilities for running games. So once again, why not work together?!

The other thing I don't quite understand is why more prominent members of the community (GamingOnLinux, Phoronix, etc.) aren't pushing back and calling into question these decisions. It's almost like everyone has resigned themselves to this course of action being inevitable.

From what I've read (albeit this is an extremely limited and simplified understanding) the Codeweavers team emailed the DXVK developer, and because they never heard back - decided to forge ahead with their own implementation.

This seems completely crazy, we all get so much email all the time, it's easy to see a single email failing through the cracks. If the DXVK developer really didn't want to help or participate, then so be it, but I'm not so sure this would be the case.

Please for the sake of a platform that I love dearly, and for the sake of making Linux gaming better and better, consider working together!

The Elder Scroll Online seems to run perfectly with Proton 4.2

I just want to share my experience running The Elder Scroll Online (ESO) using Proton 4.2: the game seems to run perfectly out of the box with no Proton specific tweaks needed at all (I'll rate it Platinum on ProtonDB).

I played so far for circa 3 hours: done the tutorial and a couple of quests on Morrowind and reached level 4.

The performance are really good , between 40 and and the max fps limit of 120, but I have a quite beefy machine (2080ti, 2700X, 32 GB RAM).

I made a gallery with some screenshot from the game, including my custom settings: https://imgur.com/a/vksigdI

I also installed several add-ons to improve the UI, mostly listed on this web site: https://altarofgaming.com/the-elder-scrolls-online-must-have-addons/

Sadly I was not able to use Minion to manage them (is not finding javafx on my OpenJDK 1.8) but the manual installation is very straightforward: just unzip the addon archive and copy the folder in //steamapps/compatdata/306130/pfx/drive\_c/users/steamuser/My Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/AddOns

I have done also some UserSettings.txt tweak to improve the performance of the game (same tweaks that you do on Windows):

  • SET GPUSmoothingFrames "0" to reduce the input lag on low fps conditions
  • SET MIP_LOAD_SKIP_LEVELS "-3" to prioritize the load of hi-res textures (you need to have a lot of VRAM)
  • SET SkipPregameVideos "1" to skip the intro videos
  • SET MinFrameTime.2 "0.00833333" to set the max fps limit to 120 (the value is the result of 1/, in my case the result of 1/120)

The game is currently on 50% sale on Steam, for the next 21 hours: https://store.steampowered.com/app/306130/The_Elder_Scrolls_Online/

There is no mandatory monthly subscription like in WoW, you only pay for the new chapters but, even if you only play the base game, for 10 you will get a lot of content.

The game had a really bad launch but now it seems to to have fixed a lot of the issues and they recently released a new (paid) expansion: Elsweyr. I'm not planning to buy it now because it currently costs 3 times the base game and, since I never played the base game, I still have hundreds of hours of quests and explorations to do there before the need of an expansion.

Anyway, I just started playing (Nightblade PvE Stamina build), if someone want to do some quest together just ping via PM.

Setting up macros for gaming with 1 hand

So I use my PC for 40% gaming, 20% media consumption, 20% work, and 20% editing. The main problem is in gaming part. My problem is in setting up macros. I have a condition where I can't move my left arm because an accident, so I rely heavily on macros to play games since I can't use keyboard and mouse at the same time. After months of reading a lot of article in internet about setting up macros,I still can't figure it out till now. All of the article are really old. And that's why I still can't totally switch to Linux. Any suggestion?

My mouse: Madcatz M.M.O TE and I use no-name USB footswitch with 3 buttons

I use manjaro KDE

First linux gaming experience

Hi everyone

I really want to try swithing permanently to Linux on my personal computer, and I was wondering which distro I should use to begin, I'd like it to be light so I thought about an XFCE environment but I don't know which distro I should use

I'd like to have a dualboot with my Windows system and I was wondering if I could share the files between my windows and linux (to share my games for example, I don't want to install them twice)

I'm already using Debian at school so I'm not really afraid of console commands (I like it to be honest)

I thought about Manjaro but I really don't know if It's good or not, so I'm just looking for advices before jumping to linux

Thanks for reading btw

Proton purposed hardware build resources...

Anyone have any good resources for tailoring hardware/upgrades for building a dedicated system to run Proton? Something to avoid picking problematic components? (Ie. AMD or Intel? Nvidea or Radeon? Particular MOBO/socket/processor combinations to seek or avoid?) And baseline, dead simple, moron-proof, distro as OS base for least hassles/best driver support? I prefer Mint, but will go back to Ubuntu if the consensus is that gives the broadest range of playability.

The issue is random but appears so far 5 times out of 7. Seven times is not random is how many times I launched the game. Funny enough.. the remaining two is when I tried to capture the game for proof of the issue. The issue came back (randomly!?) when I closed (but crashed) firefox. It happens once in awhile when I close a tab.

it is extremely annoying and breaks completely the game immersion. I was about to ditch the game completely until I heard it right for the first time, I thought may be there is hope.

Wineskin Winery Game Issue Mac OSX


Today I was trying to get Football Manager 2019 to work on my Mac OS (using wineskin winery), on OSX Mojave.

I was using wrapper version 'Wineskin-' to create my wrapper, with the 'WS10WineCX64Bit18.5.0' engine.

The football manager game was in a folder, that was run directly with an exe file inside that folder, which is why I used the 'Move a Folder Inside' option when creating my wrapper.

After creating the wrapper and running it, it didn't load up anything. However, when I went into wineskin and ran a test run, I got the following lines of text in the logs:

0009:err:seh:setup_exception stack overflow 1680 bytes in thread 0009 eip 000000007bc8a491 esp 0000000000140f80 stack 0x140000-0x141000-0x240000

I also got another run log, but that just had info about my computer hardware.

What does this error mean and how can I fix it so that I can run the game properly?

I wonder how many games would work with Proton if BattleEye and EAC had Linux support.

Even non-steam games like Apex Legends (Which used to work but Epic bought them out and intentionally seized Linux support, which angers me.)

I feel like 90% of the games that are "Borked" are merely because they can't get into game due to the anticheat. Makes me sad.

State of GPU Drivers 2019?

So last time I massively explored Linux as a full board option as my daily driver on my computer I was plagued by one major issue: My NVIDIA driver (tried both proprietary and open source) was terrible. It wouldn't perform up to what it should have at all, when it did perform there would often be screen tearing and other graphical issues, and just as a whole it was clear that this aspect on Linux wasn't quite there yet.

My question is I have gone through and updated everything, though still running an Intel cpu with a Nvidia you, and I am curious on what the state of driver support and performance is like as of mid-2019?

An Update on the Linux exclusive PS4 Emulator "Spine"

Recently there was a dev commenting on the Orbital PS4 update posts and was showing off his 'Spine PS4 Emulator' that is already capable of playing 2 games. It was assumed to have been fake and another case of RPCS4, but even more obvious due to having 0 documentation and just a random guy saying its real and providing a "demo" to download, it all seemed really fishy.

I brought this to the attention of /r/emulation and after some willing participants took the risk of trying it out, the emulator turned out to actually be real!!

Since then the dev has moved some of his information to Github and is still closed source cause its just a hobby project of his own for right now, but he plans on releasing it openly later on.

Spine is a PS4 emulator that is a Linux exclusive emulator, in which if Spine was to get to a level of playing games commercially before Orbital or anyone else, it would give a huge advantage for Linux over Windows and would be enticing for people who emulate on Windows only.

That being said, props to /u/devofspine

Hi guys,

I've been trying to get Dark souls remastered working on Manjaro, however upon launching it a white window flashes and then it closes itself.

I've also noticed I can only access the directory of the wine prefix with root access, something no one else online seems to have mentioned.

Would someone please be able to walk me through, step by step, how to get this game working on Manjaro?

[Help needed] Disgusting sound when using alsa/pulseaudio (Buffer Underrun)

Hello everyone , i'd like to share a problem i have on most linux distros , except Arch , and Calculate Linux (Gentoo) I'm currently running OpenSUSE Tumbleweed , but this also occurs on every Ubuntu varriants , i'm getting sick and tired of it , it hogs up my CPU every time it happens.

-Info about my soundcard :

-Realtek ALC1150 on MSI z97 gaming 5 Motherboard (built-in audio)

-"pactl list sinks" command output : https://pastebin.com/WH5yM4cX

-My default.pa file : https://pastebin.com/43QXupNa

This problem occurs on PCSX2 and Discord , and probably other programs as well.

PCSX2's console screenshot : https://discord.sucks/7jf.png

I managed to bypass this problem on PCSX2 since it supports SDL/OSS/Pulseaudio , but discord fucks up real bad. Additional info : i edited default.pa so sinks would not get purged when theres no sound , because it kept shutting down the sound card itself , which made the start of every sounds/music very distorted at the begining while it ramped up to the correct volume.

Linux input lag analysis(7DEs tested + Windows)

Hi there, i recently tested myself the input GNUlag that Linux and Windows might have and i thought sharing those would be appreciated here considering the complete lack of tangible proof that X or Y DE is better than the other on a technical standpoint.

For the test method, i recorded at 240FPS my mouse(Logitech G603 1ms 1000hz) button being pressed in front of the screen(Samsung C24FG70, 1ms 144hz), i did this once on the desktop with a web browser's(Opera) close button by measuring the number of frames since the button was pressed and the moment the close button changed color or the "close" tooltip started disappearing, whichever was faster.

I then did the same thing but with Xonotic(xonotic.org, the SDL fullscreen executable) by measuring the amount of frames since the button press until the muzzle flash finally appeared. Frame count always started from 1 instead of 0 and this method should yield about 1 to 2 frames of inaccuracy camera-wise(4.166*2), the total latency is calculated with (1000 / 240) * number_of_frames_camera. Ubuntu 19.04 and proprietary NVIDIA drivers with default DE compositing settings were used for all tests, the Xorg version was used everytime i could. Vsync was disabled in Xonotic's settings of course.

And now the podium, sorted by worst to best in gaming performance(cf means camera frames measured from the output video) :

8th - MATE (83.3ms/20cf desktop, 120.8ms/29cf gaming)
7th - Xfce (41.6ms/10cf desktop, 95.8ms/23cf gaming) HOWEVER it is "hardcoded" at 60fps and had horrible diagonal glitches, very bad if you ask me. https://i.imgur.com/N6OHiTC.png
6th - KDE Plasma Kwin (41~45ms/10~11cf desktop, 83.3ms/20cf gaming) i've had to do this test twice to confirm it was indeed 20 and not 19 with bad timing in the recording.
5th - Windows 10 build 1809 (79.1ms/19cf both on the desktop and in game)
4th - Gnome 3/Mutter (33.3ms/8cf desktop, 79.1ms/19cf gaming) Crazy how they went from having an infuriating 59.940hz hardcoded lock to having this kind of performance, though Phoronix says this version of Ubuntu doesn't have the recent latency improvements for Mutter, anyone can comfirm this? https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/commit/4faeb12731b81ce617042973155cc4b5737e1133
3rd - Ubuntu Unity 7 (33.3ms/8cf desktop, 62.5ms/15cf gaming)
2nd - Enlightenment (62.5ms/15cf gaming, i was unable to test the desktop because it refused to show the browser's top bar and would often be unresponsive)
1st - LXDE (37.5ms/9cframes desktop, 54.1ms/13cf gaming)

Now i don't know if it can be improved from the user side, realtime kernel(maybe) and disabling the desktop composition "should" help but if a DE has suboptimal or outright bad latency problems even without composition then is it objectively a mediocre DE? It can be asked in the other direction too.(a DE considered superior for its technical performance rather than its design)

I also didn't test tiling window managers due to lack of familiarity with those, i would have liked to test Windows 7 too(both with and without composition) but couldn't due to """uncompatible""" hardware. Windows native vs. LXDE/Unity Wine in both exclusive and windowed fullscreen modes is a very good idea too. Audio latency with Pulseaudio against that of Windows could be tested with optimized buffer lenght settings too.

Hi, after finally figuring out most of my problems getting linux to work on my cevo laptop, Ive only got one last thing that is holding me back from dropping the horror of Microsoft forever. Faceit anti-cheat client, as I mostly play cs:go and only on faceit, this is something I need. However, their client is only for winblows, and from what Ive been able to find of previous answers from them, they seem hughly reluctant to change that, they seem to not give two shits about peoples preference for OS. Does anyone here think there is any hope for this beeing changed? Anyone with the aame issue? Is there anyway to try and fix this? Or get them to change their minds?

State of gaming on Oculus?

I have an Oculus Rift as well as a pretty decent library of Oculus games. Would it be possible to still have access to all of those games if I decide to switch over to Linux? I don't plan to sell my Rift or switch headsets any time soon, so this would be the deciding factor on whether or not I switch.

Thank you!

BioShock Remastered Textures missing

Does anyone have an issue where the textures for BioShock Remastered don't load in? I have an RTX 2070 with 8GB of VRAM, 16 GB of RAM, and a 6-core i7, but textures seem to never fully load when playing the game. Signs are just a blurry mess, the statues and room decorations are just blobs. Can't tell what anything in the game is supposed to be.

Is PS4 plaguing the gaming industry?


I wanted to share my thoughts on this and also ask for your opinion on this topic. I know it's not directly related to gaming on linux, though I will mention gaming on linux, but I decided to post this on this subreddit, since people here strive for platform openness, FOSS and similar, whereas the vast majority of content of other gaming subreddits consists of people buying expensive hardware/pressing download button on steam (no offense).

Recently there's been quite an outrage about the exclusivity deals that the Epic Store has been very actively engaging in. However absolutely no one is bothered by the fact that PlayStation is doing exactly the same, but ten times worse. PS entire business relies wholly on exclusive deals. People buy PSs not because of superior hardware performance compared to Xbox, but because PS has tons of exclusives.

I wanted to know if PS is not judged as heavily as the Epic store because people think it's okay for Sony to do such things? I mean, exclusivity is a terrible thing! It's essentially forcing people to use a product/platform/software of some sort not because of the benefits/features of the product/platform/software, but because it has something, that is unavailable elsewhere.

Exclusivity is (in my opinion) very clearly analogous to trading/manufacturing monopolies, which led to the stagnation of the whole industry and the monopolized branch in particular.

Is this a valid analogy? Should companies launching games employ exclusivity tactics? Where am I wrong? Isn't PlayStation essentially holding back the entire gaming business, with people simply having to wait sometimes years to play the same game on other platfors (or never).

(Important: I understand the use of exclusivity when the service has just been launched (like what Google Stadia will be doing soon) just to give it a sort of initial boost, but PS is more than 20 years old, so that is clearly not the case here)

[Question] PopOS or Manjaro?

Hello everyone. I recently discovered Lutris and the possibility of playing on Linux.

I used windows but I "got tired" of it and I definitely moved to linux, more specifically PopOS.

I simply love the linux system and the fact that it is so versatile in my daily life (which I had no idea)

but at the time of change I read and a lot of people said that PopOS was better because it already had the drivers of nvidia. On the other hand there were a lot of people who said the manjaro was a lot better.

I would like to know the opinion of who is more in the subject and if the manjaro is better, if it is possible to install the nvidia driver as in PopOS (which already has origin)

thanks and best regards to all !!

Ps: sorry for my English :/

Lutris Game Installation Directory &amp; C Drive?

With PlayOnLinux you can create virtual drives with each game and it will create a C:/ drive for each game so it will work well with Wine and ensure there are no issues when the Windows code is looking for files in certain directories since Windows has a absolute path for certain dll, the registry and other Windows functions.

I do not understand Lutris and I understand this may someday replace PlayOnLinux. Is there a way to have virtual drives for each Lutris game that is based off of Wine? Am I able to choose the wine version for each virtual drive? Any help or breakdown will be most appreciated?

[USB] PS4 Controller (on Ubuntu 19.04) not working

Hi, I am trying to make the switch to Ubuntu, but that'll be very difficult if I can't play my favorite game (Rocket League). My PS4 is plugged in through USB, I do not have a bluetooth adapter.

Things I have already tried:

  • Big Picture Mode:
    • Enable PS4 controller support
  • Installed steam-devices
  • Installed ds4drv
  • Plugged PS4 into different USB ports

GTX 960 or R9 280 for dedicated Linux gaming?

New poster here so if I'm violating a rule or anything please feel free to remove or let me know. I was curious whether a GTX 960 or a R9 280 would perform better in Linux. I know Radeon cards have better open source drivers in newer kernels but, I'm not sure how that would stack up against Nvidia's proprietary drivers. I know that the 960 typically is only about 10% faster but I just want to use the one that has the best performance for gaming in Linux. I plan on using Pop_OS if that helps.

Direct X Copyright Infringement

Sorry if this double posts, I had to change the title a bit.

First off: Please don't say "Just use it, who cares if it's illegal! You'll never get caught!" I prefer to use software ETHICALLY, and I believe people have a right to be paid for their software. (Don't get me wrong, I try to use FOSS software wherever I can, but sometimes you don't have a choice)

Now that that's out of the way: When installing a game via WINE, and the game's launcher prompts you to install DirectX or a variant of DirectX, would accepting that be violating any laws? (Given that I don't have a Windows license?) I don't mind installing .NET as they made it opensource, but I can't find any recent info about Direct X online.

On a side note is there anywhere I can learn more about using/troubleshooting WINE? I'm still semi-clueless when it comes to Linux and I just moved from Ubuntu/Gnome to ARCH/Plasma 5 (loving it btw) I installed it via a Youtube video (I know I know, but you've gotta start somewhere. I still had to do some stuff on my own with the Wiki, and once I break something I'll do it the real way) I've been trying to install IL2 following the instructions HERE and it just doesn't seem to work. When I try to launch the desktop icon nothing happens. This also happened back when I was on Ubuntu. I'm not asking for hand holding (though I'd appreciate any help), but before I waste thousands of hours in the WINE wiki is there anything I should know? (I get this bit shouldn't really be posted on here, if the mods want I'll delete this bit)

If anyone has any recommendations for games that don't take a ton of work to get running (Preferably milsim-esques) I'd love to hear them. I've been playing Arma 3 SP for a few months now, and I think I'll buy Squad tonight. Once I get IL2 working I'll be playing that as well. I'm considering RS2 ATM. Thanks!

DirectX Copyright Infringment/The Ethics of Unreal Engine

First off: I don't want to start any rants against any companies, I have my own reasons for not wanting to support them, and secondly please don't say "Just use it, who cares if it's illegal! You'll never get caught!" I prefer to use software ETHICALLY, and I believe people have a right to be paid for their software. (Don't get me wrong, I try to use FOSS software wherever I can, but sometimes you don't have a choice)

Now that that's out of the way: When installing a game via WINE, and the game's launcher prompts you to install DirectX or a variant of DirectX, would accepting that be violating any laws? (Given that I don't have a Windows license?) I don't mind installing .NET as they made it opensource, but I can't find any recent info about Direct X online.

Also would buying a game that uses the Unreal Engine be supporting Epic? They made it free to use IIRC so none of my money is going towards them, but still... I'm not sure I 100% believe the rumors about them, so it doesn't really matter.

On a side note is there anywhere I can learn more about using/troubleshooting WINE?

I was able to simulate Dynamic Super Resolution in Linux Ubuntu 19.04

Its probably not a new thing for those who are expert Linux users, but I just officially dropped Windows full time a few weeks ago and only have Linux now. Once I found the correct information, its working pretty well, about equivalent to Windows 10.

Specs: Dell XPS-8910 i7-6700 16GB DDR4/GTX-1070FE/ 1TB 7200 HDD/Logitech G703 Mouse/Logitech G413 Keyboard/PS-DS4 Wired Controller/Ubuntu 19.04/LG 1080P 60Hz HDMI TV

I have disabled Wayland in /etc/gdm3/custom.conf, though might work better with Wayland and experimental fractional scaling turned on.

I have a bash script running at startup using the Startup Applications settings in Ubuntu, like this (I just made a text file and then went into properties for the file and set it to execute):


xorg.conf overclock

nvidia-settings -a '[gpu:0]/GPUGraphicsClockOffset[3]=60'

xorg.conf overclock

nvidia-settings -a '[gpu:0]/GPUMemoryTransferRateOffset[3]=800'

Upscales to 3840x2160

xrandr --output HDMI-0 --scale 2x2

For steam scalling but Im just using Big Picture Windowed Mode now as I cant figure out how to edit the actual Steam app icon to do this

env GDK_SCALE=2 steam

Pertinent /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/xorg.conf settings:

Option "Coolbits" "28"

Option "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0{ForceCompositionPipeline=On}"

Option "AllowIndirectGLXProtocol" "off"

Option "TripleBuffer" "on"

I then have display scaling turned on in display settings to 200%

I then set the font to +1.15 in donf Editor, but you can use Tweaks to set the font too.

This works great in Steam games like Surviving Mars, Eve Online etc, where Iam able to now set the in game resolution to 2560x1440 which works really well since I can't get Anti-Aliasing to work in allot of Linux games.

I haven't tried all my games yet, but so far I'am pleased with the results.

Vortex Mod Manager update breaks older versions

A recent update to Vortex Mod Manager changed something regarding how data from Nexus is presented to the client interface and as a result you may find yourself in a crash loop depending on the version of the manager you are using (confirmed on 0.17.11, the version you'll have if you're using the Plug 'n Play installer from Lutris).

At first the solution seems to be updating Vortex, but sadly prefixes which worked for 0.17.11 do not work for the latest stable release (0.18.6). My recommended solution is disconnecting from the internet and disabling "Recently Managed", "Announcements" and "Latest Mods" inside "Settings", after that the client will no longer fetch data from Nexus and you can get back online.

It is unknown to me whether this also affects Vortex on Windows or not but Windows users should be able to just update the program.

Trying to get borderlands 2 to update to 1.8.5 (Debian 9 "stretch")

so hi, I'm running Debian 9 and I wanted to play borderlands and I expected to just hop on with some friends and play but they are on 1.8.5 and I'm on 1.8.4.

I would like to know how to get steam to update bl2 to 1.8.5

I've tried to use proton v4.2.7 to make it do things but then it returns that steam cant write

I'm unsure if this is the appropiate place to post this, so sorry in advance if it is

Linux-compatible gaming laptop advice for the coming 6-12 months

Hello Linux gamers :)! Thank you very much for taking the time to read and comment. It's much appreciated.

My current getup is a Dell Inspiron 15 7548 running Xubuntu 18.04 that's been pretty hard used for the past ... 5...? years? I'm looking to find a replacement that's at least a small upgrade that will last me another 5 years. Doesn't have to be top of the line but I am happy to shell out good money to get a good fit. I'd like to keep this under ~1000 pounds, but if that's not possible with my extensive list of requirements, please at least don't suggest anything over 2000. Hoping to curate a list of different appropriate models I can price track and pick up at a large discount within the next ~6-12 months. Happy to wait for the right model or deal, no rush.

Use case 1: gaming/streaming

New machine will have to run a wide array of games & preferrably stream them, too. I mostly play smaller/undemanding indie titles, but more heavy-duty things I have in mind are: The Witcher 3/Baldur's Gate 3 (when it arrives)/Civ 6/Pillars of Eternity/Divinity Original Sin II/Kingdom Come Deliverance/Firmament (when it arrives)/perhaps TES 6?/any other games coming out that strike my fancy ;). (mostly via wine/Proton obv.). I typically pick up games a few years after release at massive discounts, so probably don't need the specs for things that come out in 5 years. I'm happy to run them on moderate or low settings. If they run reasonably smoothly and I can experience and share them, I've won.

Use case 2: proffessional data processing

I'm currently not well enough to work, but if I recover enough I will return to my PhD in clinical neurosciences. I work with very large datasets (large quantities of very high resolution MR imaging, a single ~70 GB file is not uncommon), and hence need a decent amount of RAM and a robust CPU. Please note this is only for data visualisation & smaller data analysis tasks, for larger computations I will have access to a cluster.

Other uses: office stuff, voice/video calling, web browsing, YT, films, the usual.

Quick note is that I am dealing with a chronic illness that is both physically and cognitively debilitating, so I have some odd requirements thrown in that might not make sense to you. I did not want to bulk the post out by explaining every one, but feel free to ask why. Also please excuse any spelling/grammar mistakes. I've spent over a week on putting this post together, but reading, writing and attention are hard at the moment, and I miss things.

Must haves:

  • It has to be a laptop. No desktop recommendations please.
  • Linux compatibility (Ubuntu) in terms of drivers, now and future support, no locked UEFI, etc.
  • Longevity and reliability over top performance. I'm mostly housebound and sometimes bedbound, and my laptop is my access to the world. Losing it for days or weeks for repair is not cool. I'd love for the next one to still work as great when it's 5 years old as my current laptop is now.
  • Decent, current CPU See above use cases
  • Decent, current, dedicated GPU on board & hybrid graphics are a dealbreaker. Needs ongoing linux driver support for the forseeable future. Longer == better.
  • At least 16 GB ram See above use cases
  • SSD, at least 512 GB. HDD only is a dealbreaker.
  • 15.6" screen, 1920x1080 resolution.
  • Max 2.5 kg in weight.
  • Standard stuff I need: bluetooth/wireless/camera/mic/at least 3 USB ports or a dedicated wired ethernet port and at least 2 USB ports, headphone jack TO THE SIDE of the laptop, NOT the front.
  • Housing I can open reasonably easily to dust, replace battery/hardware, or do maintenance without breaking/bricking the laptop.
  • Keyboard backlight
  • 'flat' keyboard that is happy with a light touch.

Non-essential would like to haves:

  • Aluminium/metal housing, rather than plastic. Plastic finish over metal is also less desirable.
  • 32 GB RAM
  • AMD GPU? From my preliminary research, this seems to be the consensus for linux at the moment? I'd like to support their open source drivers initiative (put your money where your ideals are), but from what I have read linux support and performance in general are better for AMD compared to nVidea at the moment. Please give your opinions, but don't start a flamewar.
  • Built-in/dedicated ethernet port rather than needing a USB-to-ethernet connector
  • SD card reader
  • More than 3 USB ports
  • Design features, willing to ignore any and all for the right laptop, but this is my preference:
    • Rounded corners
    • Minimalist/sleek design, less faff is better, no gamer branding, etc
    • White/silver/black/neutral colours, but most definitely no gold/rose gold, also no yellow, red or orange anywhere, either all over or details/lights. Blue/green/purple/pink details/lights might be ok.
  • Matte/non-reflective screen.
  • Modes for sensory processing issues: I have days with light/sound sensitivity that can become problematic.
    • Lowest screen brightness should be very low.
    • Keyboard backlight with adjustable brightness as well
    • Low sound/noise mode, happy for this to come with a massive performance cut. I'd be nice to be able to chat in text with people without the laptop fan noise driving me up the wall.

What I do not care about:

  • Touchscreen
  • resolution over 1920x1080
  • optical drive
  • num pad
  • battery life (will mostly be used on charger)
  • HDMI/firewire/NFC
  • speaker quality
  • Ubuntu pre-installed
  • multimedia keys
  • fancy lights/colour change lights/special keys etc
  • A windows licence

List of suggested models for feedback (to be filled from thread):

If you made it this far, very, very many thanks indeed!

Lutris DXVK uses wrong GPU

I'm trying to play Starcraft 2 (via the Battlenet launcher) but it gets passed the wrong gpu.
I have an RX Vega64 and RX 580 in my system, shutting down the 580 is not an option since I need it regularly for OpenCL workloads.

A lot of googling brought me two results:

Change the VideoPciDeviceID and VideoPciVendorID in the wine registry: now starcraft would show AMD RADV VEGA10 (LLVM 8.0.0) as the used graphics device under options - but it would still use the RX 580

Add DXVK_FILTER_DEVICE_NAME AMD RADV VEGA10 (LLVM 8.0.0) to the Lutris environment variables - no change

But all of that was to no avail and it's still using my RX 580. Using DXVK 1.2.1

Steam Survey on Windows-to-Linux users

I keep seeing comments or posts about how some Windows users deleted their Windows installation then switched to Linux because of Steam Play. I think it would be great if Valve include in the results of Steam Survey the number of former users of Windows that has switched to Linux and have been using Linux for at least 6 consecutive months.

Would you guys be ok if Valve release that info?

Vulkan call failed on Steam

Hi, I've migrated to Ubuntu 18.04 about 5 months ago, and was using Wine to play Starcraft 2.

Yesterday, I installed Steam with CSGO to play with friends, and got no issue whatsoever. However, I downloaded Total War: Three Kingdoms during the night and it won't even launch.

An error window pops out with the following text:

"Game crashed with signal 6
Vulkan call failed : -3

You may be able to relaunch the game to send the crash log automatically

You can contact support@feralinteractive.." and such and such, giving me the path to the memory dump file

I updated my drivers before sending this message, rebooted my laptop, made sure to update and upgrade my packages, and it still won't work.

Here's my config :

Intel i5-7200U

Nvidia GeForce 940MX


Running on laptop.

Any idea how to deal with this please? I guess the most obvious answer would be to contact the support considering the game is 3 weeks old, but still, I'd like to see if there's a faster way.

Thanks a lot!

Steam Controller: Does it work AT ALL without special drivers?

I know there's some community project to make the Steam Controller usable without Steam, but I kind of assumed if Steam was running I could just plug it in and have it be recognized just like in Windows. But it's not. There's no pop-up, no indication whatsoever that its presence been noticed. Is that normal? This is on a fresh install of Kubuntu 19.04, with a fresh copy of Steam installed from Discover.

Psychnauts, game is growing on me.

Got it to work with play on linux. The bad is it my PS3 controll in the settings for controlls didn't have buttons setup. I haven't played the game before. So I don't know if that's a game thing, or something else. Otherwise the game so far seems to run well I think it was in the linux gaming reddit forum a few people have suggested it as a more or less fun game. Hopefully I like it!

KungFu panda show down of legendary legends almost works.

Trying to get it work with lutris first. It gets where it'll install. I am using a PS3 controller. pressing start or triangle to start a new game it freezes then crashes.

If I switch to 4.5 or 4.9 it starts fades to black, and then crashes

4.1 (386) had to install Xaudio2 listed as Xact in winetricks. That just crashes and doesn't go any farther.

I couldn't find a entery on in Wine AppDB. anyone know where else to check if it even works with Wine?

Gonna be switching to Team Red, any advice?

So I'm finally looking to upgrade my GPU from a GTX 970 to a Vega 56 or 64, depends on what funds I have next week and what MicroCenter has in stock. Anyway, any advice from switching to Team Red? I'm currently running a 4790k OC'd to 4.5GHz, DDR3 1866 CAS9, and my OS is Ubuntu Budgie 19.04. I have two steam links that I use very heavily, however I'm moving my rig to a new media room shortly so they will most likely be used less frequently. So other than that, what can I expect and how can I prep for the transition?

The Sims 4 (Lutris): mods preventing game launch

So I downloaded the game through Origin and I played it for a while all smoothly, then I decided to transfer my old Saves, Mods, and Tray folders that I had on my old computer. The Saves and the Trays transferred just fine, but when I copy all my Custom Content into the new game's Mods folder, it gives me a pop up window saying "failed to launch", and links me to what exact file is causing the problem. When I remove that CC file from the folder, the same message appears again, but for a different file. Some CC files don't produce this message. I'm curios as to why some of my CC break the game and if there is anything I could do about them. I don't have tons of CC (exactly 1 GB), but adding the files into the folder one by one and seeing if the game launches is a long painful process, and also I love all the CC I have and it would suck to have to delete it because it's unusable. The game worked just fine on my old macbook so I'm guessing there is a problem with compatibility

Mouse Settings

I am having trouble getting good mouse settings for my games in Linux. I am using a G503 with the New Hero sensor. 2400 DPI feels just right for me on Desktop with mouse acceleration disabled (Flat acceleration profile in Gnome Tweaks). Furthermore, as far as I understand, the following shows that mouse movement is currently 1:1 translated to pointer movement:

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.mouse speed


So far so good. However, in multiple first person games, such as Borderlands (Proton) and Talos Principle (Native), the smallest movement possible is in jumps of multiple pixels at a time, resulting in a very jumpy view. One way to fix that is to set the ingame sensitivity way down (for example 0.05 in Talos Principle), resulting in a very accurate, but very slow movements. Cranking up the DPI on the mouse will compensate that, giving me the best of both worlds with very smooth ingame movements at a nice sensitivity.

However, whenever I jump back to the desktop, at these high DPI settings the mouse is waaayyyy too sensitive as expected. Of course, I can relatively easily jump between low and high DPI settings by cycling through the mouse settings with the DPI buttons, but having to do that each time I alt-tab is not ideal. Moreover, I don't recall ever needing insanely high DPI settings during Windows gaming to get smooth mouse movements without skipping pixels.

Is there a way to:

  1. Have good sensitivity ingame and on desktop with the same DPI settings on the mouse
  2. Without skipping pixels while tracking ingame
  3. Without introducing acceleration or interpolation?

Thank you very much in advance for all the information!

I have run the new clean game for half an hour just in case the folders didn't show up yet, but now I'm lost.

Dear people.

Still somewhat of a n00b but I have been looking on Google, on Reddit and elsewhere. In case my questions are stupid, I apologize. (I have experience with those who just nag)

1) Now as for my question. I am running ParrotOS (Home) and I installed PlayOnLinux. As I changed the theme of Parrot to light, PlayOnLinux is just ridiculously dark. I can not find a way to change its theme to a more lighter theme.

2) Also, when I want to install a game (in this case Morrowind GOTY) I am sure it asks for me to install Mono, but the popup is about four pixels wide and forty high. Can't click, can't make it wider to see what it says and just hitting enter or tab and enter (to basically say Install) won't do anything.

Borderland 2 on a laptop

Good day/night everyone,

I saw this sale on steam and decided to give Borderland a try, i heard there is a little performance drop in linux (compared to windows) and i'm not sure about my specs, so i'd like to ask about your opinion whether if this could work or not.

I'm on Manjaro-KDE 18.0.4, I'm playing this game on an ASUS UX410UA laptop (i5-7200u - 8 GB RAM - 256 GB SSD - Intel iGPU 620)

Also should i install anything or will steam-manjaro (comes pre-installed on manjaro) handles everything?

Thank you in advance

The Witcher 1 &amp; 2 &amp; 3 are on sale -70% and i need some help

So i bought the witcher 3: game of the year edition yesterday on sale, i know that the witcher 3 has a golden tag on protondb with platinum tags for the latest two proton updates. Most users are replying that the game runs like its a native game, no issues !!

But i have a problem, when i launch the game steam show me "preparing to launch the witcher 3" for 2-3 seconds and then it just disappears, nothing happens , no error messages just nothing!!!!

I found that some players have the same problem with "the game of the year edition" but on windows, i though maybe one of you guys went through this and might help.

This is not the first time this is happening ! I had the same issue with one windows game, i don't remember which one !

Also gives a VisualStudio 2005 error something about end of string exception. The two comments on wineapp db are from way back on 1.x

Anyone have some ideas why it's not even starting right? or is it just a Tribble and Gremlin case ie lots of problems lots of bugs and probably won't work?

I made a little commandline script that configures any generic controllers for Xinput to use in Wine but I need help testing it !

I made a video tutorial since 2/3 weeks demonstrating configuring any gamepads manually using xboxdrv for playing Xinput games in Wine.

I was having exams at the time that I could barely try to find a better solution.

If you watched the tutorial you can see how time consuming the procedures for configuring the controllers, the old script was very simple that it only did the finishing moves but didn't have any effect on the troublesome controller configuration and couldn't track the controller event number if the number changed which means all the work was thrown at the user !

After finishing the exams, I was working on a better script but totally advanced on the older one in every way that not only gives commands for xboxdrv to work, but also helps configuring the controller, helps in assigning the controller USB port for automatically replugging it and finally, it will always track the event number of the controller whenever it changes so no need to modify it yourself.

Today I was testing the script with 2 controllers of mine, one is a PS2 controller with USB adapter and another old Twin USB gamepads to check the functionality of the script.

Test results:

  • PS2 controller: Worked flawlessly.
  • Twin gamepads: Worked with a little issue that the vertical and horizontal axes of the two analogs were reversed.

I fixed this by making a small external script that will reverse them and they worked correctly just like the PS2 controller.

The problem is I tried to make this script to be less vulnerable to bugs by any means I got but as you have read it didn't perfect with my old controller, and of course I can not share something to the public that I'm not certain of it's functionality with all controllers laying around.

I'm writing this to ask for anyone willing to test this script or better contribute to it and report feedback whether it worked or not and details about the problem.

Downfalls of this script:

  1. It has a partial support for a second controller, the only way to add a second controller is that the two controllers must be of the same type so that both will have the same configuration but 2 controllers of different types is still not implemented.
  2. Still no idea about vibration, this is something to do with xboxdrv driver itself, I was having game crashes from using vibration back in Windows + x360ce combo, that's why I didn't bother with this feature.

Requirements to work:

  1. xboxdrv: sudo apt-get install xboxdrv
  2. jstest-jtk (Used for checking gamepads and the emulated one): sudo apt-get install jstest-gtk
  3. Any generic controller that have 12 buttons and 6 axes, by other means it must have the same button layout of the XBox 360 controller. Your controller must be set to js0 in the system, if it's reserved remove the first device first.
  4. Lutris: Download
  5. dumpXinput: Download
  6. Ubuntu 18.04 or any Ubuntu-based system that's not ridiculously outdated.

Note: This post is by no means a tutorial but somewhat a test session for the mentioned script, I'm going to make a video tutorial explaining it after ensuring it's functionality.

  1. Download the script, you can get it here.
  2. You will find 4 files and a data folder, your main concern here is the 2 files 1_test and 2_configure, to start run the 1_test script by opening terminal in the folder and type ./
  3. The script will search for the controller js0 and show it's input buttons on the terminal window.
  4. Open a second terminal window and run the second script 2_configure by the same method, a list with all your controller button kernel names will show in the screen with every one of them assigned a code number, the terminal will ask you for entering a button code number that resembles the Y button on the emulated X360 controller.
  5. On my PS2 controller for example, when I press the triangle button it's kernel name is BTN_TRIGGER in the first terminal screen and has a code number 1 in the list, if I want to make my triangle button to be mapped for Y I will just type 1 and press enter, simply repeat this step for the other buttons and if you can memorize the button names, you can configure the controller in less than a minute !!
  6. You can close the first terminal screen after finishing this step, another message will come up asking you what is the type of your controller (single or with double controller adapter), either way the terminal will generate the suitable script according to your choice and make sure you choose correctly.
  7. The last screen will list the connected devices and will ask you what is the port and bus number of your controller, your controller will have name like (Human Interface Device) but if you can't differentiate them just unplug your controller and press R, the question will reappear again with the list updated without the controller, just find the port number (In the same line with the controller) and the bus number (A line above it) and enter both numbers in the terminals, this step is required for auto plugging the controller when we want to stop xboxdrv.
  8. The terminal will close now with 2 files generated named start xboxdrv holding your button configurations and kill xboxdrv that will stop the emulated software, grab the dumpXinput files from the link above and copy/paste the 32 bit xinput3.dll beside the game .exe if it's 32 bit and the same for 64 bit games.
  9. It's recommended to download xinput pack from Winetricks and putting an override for xinput3.dll from the Wine configuration window but that's up to you if you want.
  10. Go to Lutris and right click your game > configure > System options tab > Pre-launch command > Start xboxdrv script Post-exit command > kill xbox script.
  11. TEST



  • The Clean file located within the script folder is no use for you, the script uses it to start fresh whenever the user runs the 1_test file.
  • The configure script will not run (or at least run correctly) without the test script running before it, this should also be done if you want to make a fresh new configuration.


Please if you have time test it and if you have any feedback on the functionality or the bash code itself I will be glad to help, if it worked correctly for everyone I will update my tutorial video with it so feel free to use it.

Midi not playing correctly in programs

I installed both Timidity and the soundpack associated-but the soundpack doesn't work. If I load a soundfont I found via Audacious, that program works but in no other fashion. Nothing else with midi is working. Timidity seems to be working-otherwise the soundfont wouldn't work at all-but I can't get the soundfont to load anywhere else. Tutorials and various forums elsewhere have been unhelpful or stuck at my problems. When I try to ping the default soundfont that tutorials recommended, I get this
$ sudo modprobe snd-seq-osspats

[sudo] password for [user]:

Building Proton issue: involves wine-mono

This could be a simple fix, for all I know.

I try to organize cloned repos so they aren't all just laying around in my home directory, so the cloned Proton directory is in /home/my_user/Tools/Gaming/proton/. I follow the instructions that build with the Steam runtime, and a do this step:

mkdir build # in the /home/my_user/Tools/Gaming/proton

cd build

../proton/configure.sh --steam-runtime64=docker:steam-proton-dev --steam-runtime32=docker:steam-proton-dev32 --steam-runtime=$HOME/steam-runtime/runtime/

Ok well 2 issues.

  1. There is no steam-runtime directory in $HOME. But I didn't notice that until writing this post. The runtime is in ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/ there is no runtime/ directory in that directory. But I just changed the path to the ~/.local/share/ directory. Runs fine.

  2. There is no directory proton in the directory above...because that's the directory proton. So I'll just run

    ../configure.sh --steam-runtime64=docker:steam-proton-dev --steam-runtime32=docker:steam-proton-dev32 --steam-runtime=$HOME/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/

Runs fine. Creates the Makefile. Run make install, and I end up with

if [ -e "../../mono/wine-mono-bin-4.8.2.tar.gz" ] ; then \
    tar -xf "../../mono/wine-mono-bin-4.8.2.tar.gz" -C "dist/dist/share/wine/mono/"; \
else \
    mkdir -p ../contrib/; \
    if [ ! -e "../contrib/wine-mono-bin-4.8.2.tar.gz" ]; then \
        echo ">>>> Downloadibg wine-mono. To avoid this in the future, put it here: ../../mono/wine-mono-bin-4.8.2.tar.gz"; \
         wget -O "../contrib/wine-mono-bin-4.8.2.tar.gz" -C "dist/dist/share/wine/mono/"; \
     fi; \
     tar -xf "../contrib/wine-mono-bin-4.8.2.tar.gz" -C "dist/dist/share/wine/mono/"; \
tar: This does not look like a tar archive

gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

That's what I got. Ask me if you need more details.

PSA: If you're having issues with games running choppy despite having high fps &amp; 144hz, try disabling compton.

I just spent an entire evening fiddling with drivers, monitor settings, game settings etc. etc. only to discover that it was compton which was responsible. Playing CSGO felt like dragging your balls through broken glass despite having 200+ fps and the screen running on 144hz.

I really hope this helps someone.

Have a nice day!

Skyrim SE steam proton Faudio fix randomly cuts audio

Anyone that has tried Skyrim SE with wine or steam proton which is basically wine, have noticed that voice and music does not work. I found the semi solution which is to use Faudio, but now I have a new problem. When I start the game up and play, all the audio works. Randomly the audio can cut completely leaving no sound at all. This especially happens if I reload a save or enter a building, the audio will just cut. Has anyone here exprienced this?
