tuxDB - linux gaming aggregate





New Twitch streamer aggregation implemented (#FuckTwitch) due to Twitch's API issues (more info on my Discord )
Problems with Battle.net/Launcher, Lutris/Wine, with respect to login/loading D2R

Back story: I'm building a new Ryzen PC and switching from nVidia RTX 2060 Super to AMD RX 6800 XT. Before building the new PC, moving hard drives around, and installing OSes, I'm testing some of the new components using my existing PC. As a part of the testing I'm attempting to run games through Wine/Lutris and Steam on the new hardware. I haven't tested Steam yet.

What I'm testing: * Kingston Kc3000 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD (Skc3000d/2048g) * (2x) Seagate BarraCuda Pro 10TB SATA-6 7200 RPM Hard Drive (ST10000DM0004) * ASUS TUF Gaming AMD RX 6800 XT OC Edition Graphics Card

What's in my existing PC: * Asus Crosshair VII Hero WiFi/ac * Ryzen 7 3700x * 32GB RAM * 4TB Seagate BarraCuda SATA 6GB 7200 RPM Hard drive

Two installations: Because I encountered problems on my existing install of Manjaro, I did a new separate install of Manjaro. I'm encountering different issues/problems between the installs with zero success.

Old Install: * Manjaro KDE v21.2.0 * Lutris v0.5.9.1 * Wine Runners = lutris-ge-6.16-1-x86_64 (default), ge-6.20-1, ge-6.21-1

New install: * Manjaro KDE v21.3.7 upgraded to v22.0.0 (current) * Lutris v0.5.11 * Wine Runners = lutris-ge-6.20-1-x86_64, ge-6.21-1, lutris-GE-Proton7-14-x86_64, GE-Proton7-27, GE-Proton7-28, GE-Proton7-29, and others

Old install issues/problems: When launching D2R from Blizzard launcher I encounter "failed to initialize graphics system..." error. Switching between the runners gives the same result. I did not do in depth troubleshooting. I putting this information here for a point of reference. The Old install was originally done with the nVidia RTX card and it worked for a while.

New install issues/problems: When launching the D2R game entry from Lutris, the battle.net launch asks for my login information. After entering the info. and approving the login, the sequence fails with the following Blizzard specific error: BLZBNTBGS80000011. Switching between runners gives the same end result. This forces me to remain in the off-line state in the battle.net launcher and I can't install D2R.

Am I missing some component or is this a known problem? I expect that Blizzard's changes to the game and/or launcher to break Wine/Lutris. I'll post Steam testing result in a reply to this post.

Problems with Xbox 360 wireless controllers on Fedora 36

I've always used Debian based distros and my controller always worked fine after some sudo apt install xboxdrv however, when I tried to sudo dnf install xboxdrv I realized that it did not existed on RPM repo. Upon some more reading however I realized that it was not necessary over Fedora and that using sudo modprobe xpad would make my wireless adapter be instantly recognized. I tried and it worked, but then problems started.

it worked and when I turned my controller on it got connected to the adapter, but after turning the controller off and trying to to turn it on again, my controller now WON'T turn on at all when pressing the middle button as if there's nothing to pair it with.

I tested with another Xbox 360 controller and NOTHING on the other controller either. I decided then to try different batteries on the controller and to my surprise, at first pressing the button it worked but now after trying to turn it on again it did not worked at all, I hold the Xbox button and it doesn't light up nothing, meanwhile the adapter is with the light on meaning it's working.

What could be the problem here? drivers? the controller? the adapter? I'm really lost here and dunno what is missing.

GNOME "secret" feature: Shell holds keystroke

(Not quite an intentional "feature", more like a unique way gamers can take advantage of the way Mutter/Gnome handles window management with Sticky Keys enabled.)

Launch a game or full screen app on GNOME. Let's say we are playing an action/shooter game and we want our character to continue moving forward without having to hold W. It's as simple as pressing the Super key to bring up the GNOME Shell. That's it. While holding W to run, press Super to open Shell then press it again to close it. You can now let go of W, you will still be running. Press W again to cancel the keystroke aka "turn it off."

This can be done with any key. Shhhhhhhhhhhh.

I was looking for a solution for getting g-sync/freesync working in Wayland...

As the title says, I am looking for a way to get g-sync or freesync working with Nvidia in Wayland for gaming.

Now the reason I am looking for a solution with Wayland is due to multiple monitors and they have different refresh rates. My primary at 165hz (freesync), the secondary at 144hz (freesync) and my vertical side panel at 75hz (no sync). If you have any experience with this you will know the xorg is less than ideal when it comes to different refresh rates and Wayland just works... for the most part. The only thing is, there are no options in the Nvidia settings GUI to apply the sync feature in Wayland. I experience a lot of studdering in gaming, so I am getting a little desperate for a solution to achieve that sweet buttery smooth gameplay.

Now there was a post from about 4 months ago that suggested using a cheaper or low-powered AMD GPU as the system GPU along with your high-powered Nvidia GPU as the gaming GPU. The idea is to get the sync feature and all the compatibility that comes with an AMD GPU but then use the more powerful Nvidia GPU for gaming by utilizing PRIME render offload to offload the game to the AMD GPU.

In my head, this makes sense, but logically, I know things are just not as simple as said. I was wondering if this is possible or not really the solution for this issue. I don't have any other GPUs to test this or any experience with PRIME offload to know how it works exactly so I am hoping maybe for a little more insight.

Anyways thanks for any input.

Playing ets 2 through another linux pc with NFS fileshare, it's perfectly playable and no visible lag

I had this old atom n270 32 bit laptop, I installed devuan 32 bit into it and made it a server for various purposes. It's useful now. And it has 2.5 W TDP, very cool right? Here is a picture of the htop of the server while playing: https://imgur.com/a/FyrpOxM

And no overheat either, it's always around 50 C. Why I did this? This way I don't need to use an external disk for my laptop, ethernet cable is now for internet+NFS share. Two birds with one stone.

Coming back to Linux. Building a new desktop PC. I want to use Linux but also stream to Twitch. Suggestions for PC components? Nvidia vs AMD etc.?

I'm a bit stuck since I've seen Nvidia recommended for streaming but AMD suggested strongly for Linux. Do you all have any ideas?

I'd like to do as much as possible on Linux and do a Linux host GPU passthrough to Windows for any games etc. that misbehave. I'd like to set the computer up to stream from either OS, so am trying to figure out the fundamental hardware. I'll likely go with Intel 12/13th 17 for the CPU, but it seems that the iGPU wouldn't be ideal for streaming?

NTFS-3G creating dozens of appmanifest files for left 4 dead 2 (NTFS Hard Drive)

I had Left 4 Dead 2 on an ntfs hard drive that I share with windows, but for some reason Steam didn't pick up Left 4 Dead 2, and trying to make it detect the game causes NTFS-3G to create over 100 random files that cannot be deleted under Linux at all. No other Linux games have this problem (Portal, Portal 2, TF2, CSGO, all the HL games work fine), except for L4D2.

Trying to install Marvel Ultimate Alliance (2006, Raven Software Version) but .wine directory seems to be a fake? - Kubuntu

Hi. I'm trying to install it through Wine but It seems like there's a second, hidden wine directory? I've installed it through WIne as well as a second time in Proton but I can't find it. I made a new 'test folder' in program files in the viable .wine directory but it seems like the games are installing in another location. I have Roblox installed through Grapejuice and when I use the Wine browser, it shows up in there but not in dolphin.

Chimera and a GTX770

Good morning all,

I've been playing quite a bit recently with my SteamLink, which has caused me to want a slightly better console-like experience. So I've put together a light gaming box for some couch gaming (specs below).

I was all set to try Chimera OS and then noticed that one of the requirements as a GTX900 series GPU or better. How hard and fast is that requirement? I like that I can boot directly into BigScreen right away and use that console-like experience w/o keyboard and mouse.

My other thought was Manjaro, but then I'd have to use keyboard/mouse. Thoughts and/or recommendations?

Couch Box Specs: i3 4130, GTX770, 8gigs Ram.

User experience: I've dabbled with Mint a few years back and have a Pi-Hole up and running.

Do Pascal (GTX 10xx series) GPUs still have terrible VKD3D performance?

This was a story that stood out to me because while I don't have a Pascal card I have some PC gamer friends who do and I have to asterisk their ability to get into Linux gaming by mentioning this issue. I know NVIDIA has started open-sourcing their drivers. Has this helped remedy the situation at all?

10/01/2022 18:16:10 CEST

Linux gaming without already-made friends can be very lonely [DISCUSSION]

Most of games where they matchmake you with random players have anti cheats blocking Linux users. For the longest time using Linux, I felt very isolated. Friends I already had would pretty much only play games with anticheat blocking Linux (i.e. Valorant or COD). Only recently did I find Deep Rock Galactic and how it matchmakes you. I knew of the game, but I wasn't aware it let you find other players to play with. To say it's great is an understatement. Overwatch 2 is coming soon as well and to my knowledge it doesn't block Linux players. There's of course League of Legends, but, frankly, I tire of the game plus every few updates it introduces weird bugs, some even present on Windows computers. Yes, you have CSGO, Dota 2 and TF2, but those are older games so if you've been a gamer for a while, chances are you've played them too much for your own good and can't even look in their direction anymore. Recently Guild Wars 2 joined Steam and it ran flawlessly via Proton, but the reality is MMOs aren't all that common nowadays and many don't let Linux players in.

I would love to hear from other people with this issue where they felt isolated due to anti cheat and how you dealt with this.

Oh, I almost forgot. Splitgate was a really cool game, but I left it due to the bot presence not being completely transparent. I'm fine with a choice to opt into bots to shorten the queue, but I also want to be able to know when bots are in and to be able to opt out. It was very frustrating when I was trying to find a buddy to play with with 0 responses from full lobbies only to later learn the game uses bots...

Running OW2 through Proton &amp; skipping BNET?

Hello, anyone figured out how to use launch options of Steam adding BNET as a non-steam game to skip straight into Overwatch 2?

I found this post where someone tinkered with it, but I was wondering if anyone confirmed it for OW2 yet (I don't have the pre-purchase so I have to wait till the 4th myself).

Anyone experienced with steam and its launch options has any idea if adding

--exec="launch Pro"

to the launch options here:


would make it launch straight to OW2? I don't have any apparent issues with BNET, I just dislike having to deal with it.

PrimoCache equivalent on Linux?

When I still used Windows, I used to have this nifty little app called PrimoCache that cached data from my spinning metal disks for fast load times in games.

Now, I know my Manjaro already caches disk reads to RAM by default if RAM is available, but the nifty thing about PrimoCache was that it was able to cache spinning metal to an SSD, and that cache was persistent through reboots. It was a read-only cache, so there was no danger of filesystem corruption.

So in effect, my games would always be transparently and silently installed to my fast SSDs while I was playing. This was super neat.

So, how do I do this in linux?

Garuda Gaming experience

Who else is using Garuda? I installed about a month or so ago and, despite a few hiccups (non gaming related), Im really enjoying it so far. Every game Ive tried in Steam has worked so far, and a couple have performed surprisingly well. In particular, Doom Eternal has really impressed me. I have some slightly older hardware (first gen Ryzen 3 and RTX 2070) but Doom runs flawlessly on ultra settings with Raytracing. I was shocked and very happy to see it work totally out of the box in Garuda. All I had to do was update my system after install and the gaming experience has been solid.

What are your thoughts on this distro for gaming?

How does one get MangoHud to launch with PolyMC Minecraft Launcher, the launcher has wrapper commands, but I haven't found a command specific for this launcher that successfully launches the game with it; I've seen ones where you put the path to MangoHud, once that it's just "mangohud", "MANGOHUD_DLSYM=1 mangohud", "mangohud --dlsym", "mangohud %command%", none of them work. have any of you figured it out?

10/01/2022 04:17:30 CEST

Why exactly is MangoHUD not on Ubuntu's repositories? It is on Debian's, Solus's, Debian's &amp; more


As one can see Ubuntu is "left out". Why?

Or should i use the Debian package? Why is there no snap either? Adding PPA's is out of the question.

Am i missing something here? Or how do you guys install MangoHUD on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS?

Does any distro provide recent packages for alvr, steamvr, proton, nvidia drivers etc.?

I want to try linux vr gaming. I have a nvidia cpu, intel cpu, oculus quest 2, so I need alvr. I'm not asking about performance, what I want to avoid if possible, is compiling different packages, dealing with dependencies, etc. I thought ubuntu at first, what I used years ago, but I can't seem to find info on latest packages. I see people mention arch distro which has nightly alvr packages, but I also see posts with arch of compiling alvr and dealing with a bunch of issues.

Does a distro exist, or someone who runs their own repository for a given distro, that has this stuff in up to date packages?

For anyone using TuxedoOS, update your kernel for gaming.

Downloaded it today, as it became available. Amazing OS with the crippling disadvantage of using 5.15 kernel. Here are the results on vanilla kernel and Xanmod-Edge kernel on FF XV Benchmark on a 5950X and 6800XT.


So, gamers using Tuxedo out there, update your kernel, it makes a serious difference.

Deep in the Void - Update 0.2 - New Inventory/Item/Crafting System Bug Fixes - Polish. Play now for Free on Itch.io! Playable on Linux!

Hello dear r/linux_gaming Community,

Thank you all for the past few weeks. We received a lot of feedback, with many constructive ideas and suggestions for improvement.

Gameplay Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYdlcCsYbC8
Game Page: https://whacklandstudios.itch.io/deep-in-the-void

So what have we done so far?

We have completely revamped the game's inventory/item and crafting system, as well as fixed many bugs that were present in the first version. We have also made many adjustments and improvements to existing features. A lot of behind-the-scenes systems have been redone in preparation for new content.

  • Inventory/Item/Crafting System
  • Switchable Controls
  • New Quests
  • Minimap
  • Quest Arrow
  • Better Enemy AI
  • Mid-Game Quality of Life improvement
  • Many more!

What will be included in the next update?

The plan for the next update is to start work on the early-game logistics system. We currently have cargo drones that transport everything to where it needs to be automatically, but this is a system that will only be unlocked in a later stage of the game. We want to create a system that is flexible and restrictive enough to force the player to come up with interesting solutions. The goal is for the logistics to be one of the main challenges in the game. The System will be a lot more puzzly and a lot more fun than it is now.

Poor gaming performance.

Recently my performance is tanking, i used to be able to get 60-80fps with Cyberpunk 2077 and was consistent in other games as well but now Im lucking to hit 40fps in Cyberpunk and very stuttery in other games, all of these are at 1080p.

Manjaro KDE Kernel: 5.19.8 AMD Ryzen 5 3600 AMD Radeon RX 6600 32Gb of Ram at 3600Mhz Every drive is an M.2 or SSD

I recently switched from X11 to Wayland and gained performance back on a few games but Im still struggling. I also changed the CPU governor to Performance and had no change.

Can anyone shed some light as to help bring back performance?

Another Distro Suggestions (Finale)


I've had used Linux since 2021 but I don't remembered what makes me to be in Windows 10 again.

I am really felt guilty. I set my mind to not changed my OS again. I think you already know why I am switching. I got a several problem to run this bloated OS.


The company behind it were scummy as hell I couldn't trust this company after watched SomeOrdinaryGamer's video.


"Bloated and Slow". I used Firefox and it got problem on Windows. On Linux , not so much.

The update takes a long time and I cancelled it by "Force Shutdown" it.


"Complicated Design".

So all these problem will not solved until the judgement day comes.

So what's the best distro. I am no that's no "best distro". But can it be easy and less pain. I heard GNOME were better than KDE in terms of NVDIA GPU?

I just need a stock design without an extension added.

Hunting down lag spikes

1080Ti, Ryzen 1800x, xfce on Arch. Game is Nex Machina on Steam.

Trying to figure out why I'm getting stuttering where the game fluctuates between 15 and 160 fps but seems to be unrelated to the particular graphical load at the moment. This game also used to run flawlessly so I'm pretty sure it's a configuration issue. I've tried switching proton versions and killing all extra processes but that doesn't seem to have done anything. turning the game graphics down doesn't appear to help either. what are your tricks for troubleshooting this kind of problem?

So I'mma just be frank up front, I'm not spending any more money on streaming gear as pretty close to $1k already let alone the $5k PC I built a year ago.

I know PCI passthru exists for a virtual machine so what I'm wondering is, would it be possible to use passthrough to be able to use my wave xlr and 4k60 pro mk.2? if not PCI passthru covers the mk.2 but I still kinda need to get my hd60s working and pretty sure the wave xlr might come up as a generic mic (which is fine).

As for the rest of my workload I have found a suitable replacement for everything, and I only play fighting games so I'm not worried on the gaming front.

any ideas other that virtual machine passthru?

Is there a way to make FSR work in borderless mode?

As far as I'm aware, FSR only works if the game is in fullscreen, and it's resolution is lower than your screen's. However, there are games that either don't support real fullscreen and use borderless mode instead, or upscale themselves to monitor resolution, resulting in the game not working with FSR. Is there a way to get around it somehow? Force fake resolution? Force FSR even on windowed apps? Something like that? I'm okay with external programs, if any.

PsyDoom now has Linux binaries


This isn't another source port of the id Tech 1 engine.

It comes from reverse engineering of the PS1 versions of Doom and Final Doom. You'll need PS1 disc images of these games to play (which aren't hard to find).

What's driver support like on rx580 vs rx5500 vs rx6400 ?

I recently bought a laptop with Ryzen 5 PRO 5650U and the integrated graphics chip "just works". No proprietary drivers, no extra blobs needed, good enough for gaming right after OS installation. I had never experienced this with discreet GPUs on linux before. This is the hw support I want for a gpu on my desktop. Among these 3 (rx580, rx5500, rx6400), which one(s) have the same driver support? And how much more troublesome is the least supported of the 3?

Is it possible to use Wine-GE runners with the flatpak version of Lutris? [steam deck user]

I installed the FLATPAK version of Lutris on my steam deck and downloaded the latest Wine-GE release, but Lutris does not add it to the list of usuable runners.

Does the Lutris flatpack load runners from the usual folder?

Reduce size of full screen PlayOnLinux games on ultrawide monitor

There's one game in particular (Populous The Beginning) that I'd like to improve in PlayOnLinux on Ubuntu, but it also goes for several titles.

It's working, but I have an ultrawide monitor and the game only offers a full screen option. Can't play it in a window (as far as I can find anyway). It uses the mouse pointer pushing against the edges to scroll, so the pointer needs to be "locked in".

Anyway, I'm wondering if there's a way to create a "screen within a screen", reducing the side of the full screen game so it's not stretched out across the ultrawide monitor, but still works as a full screen game?

I've set Wine to use a virtual desktop, which mostly works and limits the size well, except the mouse pointer status outside of the game window and confuses it when the pointer goes back into the game.

Any ideas appreciated!

RTX Remix looks really cool. Do you expect Linux support?


Nvidia announced their new software RTX Remix and it's honestly like magic. It can allow users to remaster their games on their own and the tech demo is honestly very very impressive.

I looked at their description and it says it'll support Vulkan hardware but it also provides its own DLLs and launcher.

Do you think Wine could run DLLs? Do we have any other examples of Nvidia tech like RTX Remix not working on Linux?

Sharing a drive between Windows and Linux?

As the title suggests.

Has anyone found a way to get steam on Linux to recognize that games that were installed on a secondary drive in WIndows?

This secondary drive specifically only holds my games, and I don't want to double install the games. Is there any way to get steam to recognize they exist and not install them on my Linux drive?

I've got that drive as a Steam Library folder but it doesn't seem to recognize them as installed.

Game can't connect to network on host, but can in Linux/Wine VM

I'm trying to play Pokemon TCG Online, but it's not working right.

When I try to run the game in my host OS (Linux Mint 20.1, Ubuntu package base 20.04), the game launches okay but regardless of whether I select Start (the new user option) or Log In, the game tries to connect to the servers but instantly fails and says that the servers are offline.

Here's the crazy part: When I open up the game in a VM (the one I used was a Linux Mint 18 or 19 VM, Ubuntu package base 16.04 and 18.04 respectively), it works! It's ungodly slow and laggy to the point where it eats half of my inputs even when I go slowly, but that's just how VMs work with gaming IME.

At first I thought it had something to do with changes I made to the network stack - I run some kernel options and other things that disable my IPv6 (for privacy reasons). However, when I booted into a different copy of Mint 20.1 that didn't have these changes to it (I made it a few years ago to troubleshoot/track down a different problem and never deleted it), it still doesn't work! What's more, after testing my VM and my main Mint install, both read as inaccessible to IPv6.

Yes, I've tried disabling my firewall. Yes, I've tried using different WINE versions and installation methods. Yes, I've tried both PlayOnLinux and Lutris. None of it helped.

Can anyone give me some hints on what might be the problem, and how I could fix it?

64 bit windows games on mac?

I've been trying to get windows games on steam to work with mac, games like TF2 and Outer Wilds. After hours of searching I found playonmac which allowed me to run a bunch of valve games I bought, and for awhile I was content. But then I downloaded a more 'modern' game and it refused to open. I downloaded dozens more (splitgate, hitman 2 and whatnot) which all resulted in a crash.

I notice that steam is called wine32on64preloader or something similar which helps me narrow down my search. I tried to do some debugging to see if it was the system messing up, re-installed the virtual drives and even tried downloading it on a different device but it always resulted in the same realization. Playonmac doesn't support 64 bit games. Now, given that playonmac uses wine, I was wondering if there's anybody who knows how to get these games running on my mac. I'm getting a gaming laptop sometime, but as of now I want to use what I can, bootcamp and other paid methods are something I'd definitely get if it was long-term, but if I'm getting a laptop meant for this... Thanks!

Words Can Kill: Slay the Spire meets Scrabble - Linux release

Hi guys! I'm a dev of the game Words Can Kill. The game launches on Steam today.

It's a roguelike deckbuilder where your cards are letter tiles akin to those in Scrabble. This adds a neat dimension to which letters you add to your deck or take away, because it completely changes what words you can play in which situations. And this game is not about your vocabulary (I'm not even a native speaker). It's mostly about tactical decisions and resource management. Your letter tiles and your health are just resources.

You will travel through the fantasy world and fight monsters trying to find a more efficient way to use your letters and your gear. The key aspect is future planning: attack now without a bonus from your weapon or wait a turn and spell a longer word, discard a tile or leave it in your hand for the future.


Northenlion played an early demo of my game and missed lethal twice during the fight with the final boss. Hope you can do better!

I developed my game under Linux, but it was not easy. Unity has so many problems in this OS. Unity cannot correctly define supported resolutions on the multi-monitor systems. My NVIDIA drivers were in conflict with the Unity editor, so I've seen a lot of black screens instead of Unity UI after 10 mins of work. Steam tools work well only under Windows. Anyways, it was nice experience! Now I can call myself a true game developer.

Only 4K @ 30hz and Im not sure why.

I have this motherboard: https://www.asrock.com/MB/AMD/Fatal1ty%20B450%20Gaming-ITXac/index.asp#Specification And I have a Ryzen 4350ge: https://www.amd.com/de/products/apu/amd-ryzen-3-pro-4350ge I tested Ubuntu and Mint and found out I can only choose 30hz for 4K resolution. Xrandr doesnt show 60hz. Wayland also only offered 30hz. The board is suppose to give 60hz on hdmi 2. my tv is a 2022 Oled tv with up to 120hz. I might run it with 1080p@120hz anyway. But Im just curious. I also tested without the hdmi cec Adapter and bought a new really pricey hdmi cable. Any suggestions?

Setting a fake resolution for X11 (Kinda like DSR on windows)

I tried all the guides out there such as "How to Set A Custom Screen Resolution in Ubuntu Desktop" by Tecmint and other tips found on reddit and every other possible place but they sadly dont seem to work.

I added the resolution, i can even select it (KDE) but the output doesnt change at all. I can set the output manually by something like:

xrandr --output DisplayPort-2 --mode 1920x1080 --scale 1.50x1.50 --panning 1920x1080

But it doesnt work properly.

Basically what im trying to do is ideally create a fake 1440p or 4k resolution so i can use it as an upscaling solution in games.

On windows it was easy with DSR but on linux (Arch+RX6700XT) i cant find a way to do so, and gamescope is out of the question because it locks me to 60hz as does wayland in general unfortunately.

FFXIV Seems to be eating keyboard inputs when a mouse button is held

Running Nobara and launching FFXIV through Steam and XIVLauncher from flatpak. everything seems fine, performs about as well as expected, though whenever I am holding any mouse button, keyboard inputs seem to get eaten almost at random. For instance, the W key could simply not function until I release and press it again, and then everything will seem fine for a little while until another key just doesn't respond until I release it and press it again.

This issue does not seem to be occurring in other games- tested with monster hunter rise, Satisfactory, and Risk of Rain 2. I think it might have something to do with how XIVLauncher handles compatibililty tools, but I am struggling to find proper information on it. If I should look elsewhere, I would happily accept a recommendation.

New World joining World issue on specific character

Hey !

I recently decided to switch to Linux again and tried out New World since they adjusted their EAC.

The game itself runs fine but I can't connect to one of my characters who is currently sitting in Winsward. Whenever I try to join the world, the loading spinner just stops but the game doesn't seem to freeze as I can still hear music and even voice chat

I tried creating a new character (on a different server but same region), which worked fine and I could log out and log back in without any problem. Even after moving the new character to the same city as my problem char, I could still log out and back in while the problem character still didn't work.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing my issue?

The games become slower after saving the game to disk. How to make the games run faster?

I use wine on Linux to play various Windows games.

The games run fast at first. If I save the game progress and load the saved file again, the games run much slower and all the animations run much slower. Restarting the game or rebooting the system does not fix the issue.

It is not limited to any single specific game. This issue is observed in all games.

I run the games on Wine 6.21.

Can anyone point out how to fix this issue?

flatpak randomly ignores DRI_PRIME

I use DRI_PRIME=1 to launch Steam with my more powerful secondary GPU. Both GPUs are AMD. This has worked fine for years. I just tried switching to flatpak Steam in order to improve stability and fix a couple bugs, and I'm finding that most but not all of the time, flatpak Steam will insist on using the wrong GPU. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. Sometimes when I launch flatpak Steam, it respects DRI_PRIME=1 and uses the correct GPU. Sometimes it doesn't. AFAIK I am doing this correctly--I'm adding --env=DRI_PRIME=1 and --env=DXVK_FILTER_DEVICE_NAME= as arguments to the flatpak run command for Steam.

What gives??

linux-6.0-rc4 makes practically no difference to Ryzen 5000 performance, may adversely affect bluetooth.

There have been a number of articles going up recently regarding an old hack in the Linux kernel for the Athlon era of AMD processors that can negatively impact performance and is still being applied universally to all AMD processors, which is finally being patched out in the 6.0 kernel. That fix has been merged in, so I decided to try the most recent release candidate to see if it made a noticeable difference.

I installed linux60, linux60-acpi_call, and linux60-headers under Manjaro Linux. When compared to the 5.19 kernel I have been running on identical settings, the Phoronix kernel build test had essentially identical results, and gaming benchmark performance was the same. So if you have a Ryzen 5000 series CPU, do not expect a big jump in performance from this patch.

At the same time, i noticed that Steam can no longer detect my Playstation DualSense (PS5) controller over bluetooth, although USB still works as expected. Pairing it to bluetooth was also a bit of a hassle, and even when it successfully paired, the pairing utility in KDE reported that it failed. Booting back to the 5.19 kernel and re-pairing worked fine. This is on an Intel AX210 chipset, so your results may (probably will) vary. I did try a couple of the simple solutions to "DualSense works on USB but not bluetooth" like setting a udev rule that prevents the bluetooth adapter itself from enumerating as a joystick, and removing/reenabling the hid-playstation kernel module with no success, so it is likely this is a new problem which will have to be worked out in the coming weeks by someone more intimately familiar with the low-level workings of the OS than I am.

Just figured I'd give everyone a heads up on what you may be able to expect when the 6.0 kernel goes live on October 2nd. I wouldn't rush out and install it until some of the kinks are worked out, you probably aren't missing anything, at least on modern AMD.

World of Warcraft classic PopOS slow Lutris

So last weekend I dropped Windows 10 and thought I'd give Linux a try. I installed wow classic only for it to break from an update, I've managed to get it working but it takes an age to get the game started.

I installed it using the wow classic community installer using Lutris, I really just want to know if this is normal or do I need to install any additional dependencies.

[Proton] Running a .bat or .sh that then launches the game

I am running Turtle WoW right now and its running flawlessly. I simply downloaded it and added it to steam as non-steam game and applied a proton and I'm off.

The game recommends deleting your cache directory often however. So, I want to run a script that handles that prior to launching the game. I thought I could do this with steam launch options, but I feel like the problem is staring me in the face and my search results are not going anywhere.

Anyone accomplished something like this already?

[Mist Survival] - "Microsoft Visual C++ Required" -&gt; UE4 Prerequisites crashes "0xsomething Invalid ACL" cannot install/play

Platinum ProtonDB rating my ass.

All Proton versions except 3.16-9 and 4.2-9 crash in milliseconds after hitting the green "Play" button. It immediately turns back to green "Play" again with no error message.

Proton 4.2-9 will never ever leave the tiny "Preparing to launch Mist Survival" little blue box. You are forced to manually kill Steam.

Proton 3.16-9 will eventually load in 3-4 minutes, and pops up a Windows box message saying "Microsoft Visual C++" is required and you hit yes to download.

It pops up a Windows box saying "UE4 Prerequisites" and fails in about ~10 seconds saying 0xSomething Invalid ACL.

The only thing I can think of is that I don't have a certain package installed.

If this is true, why does Steam not install this automatically?

You are missing the following 32-bit libraries and Steam may not run: libc.so.6

Hi all - today randomly, after a few power outages (not sure if this matters) I tried launching steam and receive this hell error message: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries and Steam may not run: libc.so.6. I am on Debian testing and NOT using a flatpak version of Steam. I downloaded directly through apt and not through Steam.

I was playing games yesterday without an issue - and I have tried re-installing steam and the dependencies over again, but they are all installed and up to date. These commands below do not help:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libc6-i386
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1:i386

Another thing I tried was steam --reset and which it gave me the same libc error. In reading the Arch wiki article I attempted to run the command on ./steam.sh --reset but then get a different error stating:

 "Couldnt find bootstrap, it's not safe to reset Steam. Please contact technical support."

Not much on this error except hardware issues, but I am not sure. Since this is out of the blue and I was playing fine yesterday, does anyone have any suggestions or did power cycling while the computer was on damage something?

What's the alternative for OneDrive.


I know this topic weren't open source related. But I don't find another subreddit better than this community.

As someone who used Linux for quite while. I am surprised about Linux's Performance lately. But that's besides my point.

My question is....... What's the alternative for OneDrive?

The key problems with OneDrive :

First. It's slow

Seconds. I hate Microsoft.

Third. Buggy and outdated looking.

But I heard quite a few of you like NextCloud and Linode. But maybe I am wrong? I don't know?

Either way , Thanks for all the people that helps these noobs (including myself).

Tempted to give up on Linux/PC gaming in general

Im tired of playing roulette with the gods of software engineering. Ive avoided known issues like anti-cheat and games with poor ProtonDB ratings, but Ive still been bitten by other problems. A few weeks ago, a Skyrim update broke SKSE, effectively rendering the game unplayable. The issue I posted on the Steam Github page got closed as wont fix: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/8802 Likewise, an update broke Proton compatibility with Dragon Age: Inquisition.

These arent always Linux-specific issues either; the Skyrim/SKSE thing affects Windows users too, and while Linux has its issues, the reason I switched to it in the first place was because Windows had so many problems of its own. Drivers and updates can be problematic on either platform. And poorly-performing games abound, with serious stutter issues (Elden Ring) or insane system requirements.

Ive set a few ground rules for future purchases:

  • Mods should not be required to enjoy the game. Skyrim, for example, has weak combat, and the NPC followers are boring AF, with no personality, dialogue or relationships. Mods should be an optional tweak, and the game has to handle them gracefully with stable APIs.
  • Obviously, good Proton compatibility.
  • Good performance out the box.
  • Minimal bugs and minimal updates.
  • Minimal complexity.

Most AAA games end up being too much of a hassle because of the last 2 points. Indie games at least work reliably even I don't always enjoy them. I remember playing games on Kongregate and Armor Games, and it was so much more fun. Ever since I came over to Steam, the joy left gaming. Gaming has started to feel more like the software development assignments from my masters courses. Even maintaining Linux is only a fraction of the headache.

Can I use upscaler tech on a rx6600 to play games at a higher resolution while still getting good fps in Linux land?

I think upscaler is the correct term here. Basically if I get a 1440p screen but m gpu performa much better at 1080p, can I use upscaling or something to "emulate" higher fps at a higher resolution at the trade off of some quality? Is that how this tech works?

Any tips greatly appreciated.

how does proton sometimes perform better than native windows?

I know linux is more light weight, but it still has to translate windows calls to linux calls and direct x calls to vulkan calls. What does windows use a translation layer similar to wine/proton to get software compatibility on various windows oses that adds overhead to them enough to make them perform worse than linux in stuff like god ofwar

BeamNG Native Linux

BeamNG came out with two patches recently, I read the patch notes and there was literally 0 word about any updates to the Native Linux version of the game, but I went ahead and tested it anyways to see if any issues are fixed.

It seems that Beam now has a significantly better X windows implementation in the main menu. The game now properly starts as a window and you are able to drag the window around without it doing weird desktop/cloning and clipping across the screen, and it seems instability and lag in the main menu have been fixed. The game also no longer warns about a case-sensitive file system, but ext4 still may be slowing down the game, as I still ran into stability issues.

Loading into the game is different, as X windows starts to not work as well and clones the background when dragging the window around, and load-times/stability appear to be just as bad. I still have to drag the window around to get it to update the load bar.

I was just wondering what luck you guys have had running Beam on Linux? I've found the game to run quite well if I baby it and don't alt-tab and close other programs and I've been able to play for long stretches but there is clearly some weird texture issues going on and the game is unstable because of it.

09/28/2022 00:13:16 CEST

Holy shit, what has this become?

So basically things go like this: I've been a Linux user since SuSe 7.0 - so around 2000. It's been a constant on-and-off relationship, with the first attempts to fully switch over to GNU/Linux when Ubuntu 6.06 released. There always have been several reasons that made me switch back to windows or dualboot both OSes.

Now, as Windows 11 is a steaming dump of feces, I could not stand it anymore and made the switch to Linux on all of my PCs (except one Thinkpad - some proprietary stuff still needed for work this year). Currently I am running the Fedora 37 beta + mesa-git copr on my main machine (Thinkstation P500, Xeon E5-1650v3, 32GB RAM yaddayadda) and have found replacements for all my needs, although not all of them are FOSS:

As I have not been gaming that much in the past years because two children were born and work has eaten up most of my time, I didn't bother all too much trying things out. Of course I looked into the state of linux gaming with Proton/DXVK here and then, but did not engange all too much.

Yesterday I felt like playing a little so I installed ET:Legacy, which is a native client, and noticed just how smooth and (using Gnome 43 + Wayland) without any screen tearing it runs. So after finding that out I opened my steam account and just tried to run some of my all time favourites: BF1/BFBC2,Anno 1404 and the like. I was really blown away how well that all worked, which framerates AND consistent frame times I could get out of my system. Last time I tried especially Battlefield V and 1 were a stuttery mess on my dated hardware (RX570 4GB). It's just so smooth now. Incredible.

So what has happened now? Games HDD formatted, redownloaded everything except Destiny 2 (fuck you, Bungie!), capped FPS at 60 using MangoHud and for the first time in the past 20 years I don't think I'm going back to Windows all too soon.

Bonus: Found replacements for all my work-related software that functions nicely, except GIMP, which I need to tweak I guess. Scribus also is no replacement for Affinity Publisher but that might change. It's not needed that often. Softmaker Office replaces MSO, while not being FOSS it's such a good piece of Softwakre.

Microstutter in all games regardless of framerate, undetected by MangoHUD


I've been having this issue where all games, regardless of resolution or framerate, have this constant microstutter that makes gaming quite unpleasant. It's especially visible when panning the camera, where instead of "linear" movement I get something much more "stuttery", even though it's not always evident. On Windows I have no such issue. The problem: MangoHUD reports a buttery smooth 60FPS/120FPS and the occasional stutter due to shader compilation, but shows no indication of these other stutters.

I am currently on GNOME X11, Arch w/ zen kernel, RTX 3090 with latest nvidia drivers (closed source), AMD 5800x with governor set to ondemand. I have two monitors, a 27 inch 2560x1440 G-Sync monitor set to 120Hz and a Samsung Odyssey G9 5120x1440 "G-Sync capable only on paper" set to 120Hz. Linux runs on 1TB NVME dedicated drive.

I've already tried:

  • Enabling/disabling (Full)CompositionPipeline
  • Enabling/disabling Unredirection
  • Switching to KDE/XFCE4
  • Turning off / physically detaching my secondary monitor.
  • Moving my secondary monitor to the right of my main monitor (I read that the leftmost monitor gets some special treatment)
  • Enabling/disabling TripleBuffer in xorg.conf
  • Playing with nvidia-settings (VBlank, flipping, image quality, etc)
  • Praying to the old gods that lurk in the dark corners of the universe
  • Using gamemode, gamescope, MangoHUD FPS Limiter, DXVK_ASYNC (with DX11 games)
  • Setting the CPU governor to performance
  • Using Steam Native, Steam Runtime, Steam Flatpak
  • Using all the environment variables I managed to find on long dead forum theads
  • Forcefully sincying to main monitor
  • Reverse the order of the DP cables on the card
  • Switching to Wayland, which of course seems to solve the problem but this bug makes things even worse, and I can't honestly tell if the other issue is still there or not but the stuttering seems different.
  • Trying different kernels
  • Compiling my own kernel
  • Enabling/Disabling GSync
  • Trying to run games on the other monitor

I'm honestly out of ideas, short of nuking the entire installation and trying again from scratch. Maybe someone else has experienced this? Maybe there's something else I can try?

Random audio crackle in games after PC has been on for a while

Hi all, I'm currently facing a weird issue with my audio. When ever my PC has been active for half a day and I then start a game, I sometimes experience some random audio crackle, which can only be rectified by restarting my PC. I'm currently trying to test if its an issue with my audeze mobius headset, but since this is a fairly new issue, I doubt that my headset is the issue, since its only present on this machine.

Videos and Music dont seem to be affected by this, only games started through steam crackle. Even discord remains unaffected. The issue appears both under official and GE proton GE releases.

I'm currently running a fairly fresh fedora 36 install on an Asus b550 e gaming motherboard pared with a 5800x and 6900xt. Kernel version is 5.19.11-200.fc36.x86_64. My headsets are running at 96khz 24bit and are connected through USB. I dont know if this could cause issues with pipewire.

Has anyone experienced a similar issue? Any help or suggestion is welcomed.

As confirmed in the issues logged upstream and on the Arch tracker, there seems to be an rendering issue causing graphical glitches resulting from an update to Mesa 22.2.0 affecting AMD GPUs with the only solution as of now being a rollback to Mesa 22.1.7. It is advisable to hold on to that version till the issue is resolved (hopefully) in the next point release.

Can't get the Cyberpunk DLSS2FSR mod to work under linux (deck)

Hi there, I've been trying to upgrade cyberpunk (and a few other games) to use FSR via the DLSS replacement mod. I've seen quite a few other people successfully using it but have been unable to get it to work myself.

For those unfamiliar the mod comes in the form of a couple of files dropped into the game folder (mine are in the correct location) and a registry edit file. I have used protontricks to install the registry edits, and have made sure that I am accessing the correct prefix (GOG version imported to steam). Everything is correct, I am able to find my active save games under the default prefix, which is different from the prefix created by heroic.

I've watched a few different guides for getting this mod working on the deck, I seem to have done everything correctly. The files are where they should be in the folder with the game exe / beside the DLSS files, the regedits are where they should be when I navigate to their locations. When I load up the game though DLSS remains greyed out.

Other things I've tried include; making sure protontricks is installed correctly, making sure it has the correct permissions via flatseal, attempting the mod with games not installed via heroic like Control and Death Stranding (dropping the files and importing the regedit each time).

I've also been in discussion with other people having the same problem. One of them has gone as far as to factory reset their deck and reinstalling everything from scratch to try and get this working. Still no dice.

Does anyone have any suggestions on getting this to work?

Distro Suggestion!

Ladies And Gentlemen,

I have finally done thinking about fork (leave) Manjaro. But, I couldn't just fork (leave) without thinking about another distro. Yes , I could just put FreeBSD and play games on it. But that's besides the point.

The distro that I need is -

Got a larger community (on Reddit especially)

No Arch (just Debian or based distro)

Don't Care about snaps and all that bs.

Maintain by company not community.

Nice GNOME experiences.

I found out that all the community maintenance distro were unstable. Come on, I've been hopping distro for several years. I know what's up.

I upload this post on r/linux_gaming because I forgot about distro since I was busy studying and that bs.

I just got back to PC and I still don't like KDE and Manjaro.

I just beg somebody won't give a manjaro download link.

Sincerely ,

(Random Person From Russia)

Did anyone manage to play Trackmania (2020) on linux?

Hey, I've become a big fan of Trackmania, and I had no issues playing it on windows a few days ago, but having some issues on linux.
Mainly that the game freezes my pc up on startup, or if it starts then I have around 10-12fps and can barely do anything in menus

I tried to install through lutris with both install methods, and from Heroic Games Launcher and tested a few wine and proton versions.
From HGL it didn't even launch at all, and from lutris it did what I mentioned above.

Hey, I got the newest version Ubuntu 22.04.1 . Neither CSGO nor Dota2 start. They always crash even with the libtcmalloc_minimal.so.0 library installed. I also used the commands -novid and -nojoy for CSGO because someone said this could help. Anyone else got an Idea? Would appreciate any help!

Spider-Man Remastered "Something went wrong with this game

I bought Spider-Man Remastered for Steam and have been trying to run it without any success. I keep getting this error.

I'm on a fully updated Arch Linux install using the Nvidia beta vulkan drivers and tried both the latest proton-ge and proton experimental but both give the same result. I tried with and without any launch options (PROTON_ENABLE_NVAPI=1 VKD3D_FEATURE_LEVEL=12_1 VKD3D_CONFIG=dxr11 mangohud gamemoderun %command%). Does anyone have an idea on how to get it to start?

For anyone having issues with GROUNDED and dotnet40

If you tried to install dotnet40 and failed like me, you should install msxml3 first.

protontricks 962130 -q msxml3

protontricks 962130 -q dotnet40

and then follow this video for online play.

Done with GE-Proton7-35. Experimental or newer(might be change in future) should work.

How to run GTA VC on Linux?

Hi. Trying to run GTA Vice City on my Arch. I tried different archives and instructions, but they refused to work for various reasons. There is also Lutris, but it does not work with older graphics cards and drivers (390). In some places they give links to these archives, but for me these instructions are not very clear.

I'm looking for help from those who recently successfully installed GTA VC on their Linux.

Strange Steam Issue

I ask Steam to create a desktop shortcut after installation was long over with, and it puts the shortcut into a desktop folder. I click the shortcut, and it opens an entirely new instance of Steam that does not remember my library or settings.

I have had this happen a few times, just having a strange two steams issue with different things. Is there a way to fix this? And namely a way to make the shortcut communicate with the correct steam install?

I went through a lot of headache setting up Fallout 3 and New Vegas, I just forgot to create shortcuts and I would really rather not reinstall them and go through 2 days of headache again

Also according to them the workaround for "d3dcompiler_47.dll" is now upstreamed but the Win7 workaround requirement remains since the game uses the Winsock Registered Input/Output (RIO) API.

An update for the game should land in the next 24 Hours.

I finally got my around 350 mods working in fallout 4 in linux and im happy

Ive hated windows for a long while, but linux never seemed viable to me as a pc gamer. With the steam deck's release however I've been following it again and finally decided to partition my nice nvme for garuda after i ran into a bad bug in windows that was the last straw for me. I feel free from all the bs i hated in windows, and this shit FLIES. I spend nearly no time waiting for loads unless its a game, its fast.

But i am a big fan of fallout, so being able to mod those games is a must for me to actually swap and today I actually got it working. All nearly 400 mods, and I'm one away from fallout 4's plugin limit, and it works just as well as windows so far. It took more work than in windows yes, but it was mostly me learning so id call it worth it. I'm happy cause this means fully swapping over may be possible for me.

Debian 11 Bullseye - Games wont launch / crashing. "Video adapter doesn't meet specifications"

I'm on a 5700 XT and have been having some issues for a while now I think (perhaps bringing over windows drivers to linux when I switched OSs). I was on Arch and then had stability issues (crashing) and moved to Debian, initially things were fine but then I started having issues again with games crashing. I'd hard reboot the system and it would be fine for a few minutes and then continue to crash.

I've tried installing drivers and using commanders in the properties menu for the games in Steam (and changing Proton versions), but am still having these issues, with it now being that the "System video adapter doesn't meet minimum specifications" on Age of Empires. Reminder : High end system. What?!

Your help is appreciated.

Help needed with latencyflex installation nvidia Overwatch

I need help installing latency flex and possibly other suggestions on how to improve performance in Overwatch.

I recently switched from Windows to Arch and I'd say Overwatch runs fine ish on Lutris using gamemode, dxvk-async, and linux-zen Although I've noticed my fps dipping from 250 to 230-200 sometimes even when nothing impactful is happening, and that's with the pre-included shader cache and me having played 20+ hours already.

I was wondering which runner is recommended and how to go about installing latencyflex as the game either doesn't run (on lutris) or B.net opens and says it can't find a graphic device thingy when you try and launch the game. I tried changing the environment flags and moving the files, but I honestly don't fully remember everything I've tried, so if anyone can help out I'd appreciate it.

I'm running at the same settings as I used to on windows btw with which I didn't have this framedrop issue: https://imgur.com/a/v0cFE7S


- Which runner is recommended for overwatch?

- Can anyone help an arch user install latencyflex?

I was just browsing through settings on discord and noticed Krisp is an option, I remember updating to 0.0.20 and didn't even investigate further. Looks like Krisp is finally in that stable release. I really wish they had some patch notes or even a blog to update linux users or something ya know. Finally I can talk without worrying about the sound of food or people or dogs in the background.

Sorry if this is old news I was googling it and couldn't find much talk about it other than the Discord support page having 3 comments about it finally being added.

Now I wanna see if audio in screen-share is working later today, if not then just gotta still do one of the many workarounds to do it cause it's fun to share games with friends and sucks when audio isn't included.

Multi-monitor Freesync Xorg compatibility

I have a question about using VRR on Xorg, I know apparently my Freesync HDMI monitor does work, but I want to connect my 60hz 720p TV to my computer as well. I have heard there are problems with using VRR on Xorg with multiple monitors connected, but it's unclear whether that's specifically with regards to multiple VRR displays, mismatching refresh rates, or what. I would be running both displays at 60hz, but only the Freesync 1080p HDMI monitor would be using VRR. I know Windows wouldn't have any problem whatsoever with this kind of setup, but I can't find solid information about Linux with regards to this. I am running Ubuntu 22.04, Gnome desktop, with an RX 570 as my display adapter.

tl;dr: do I have to ditch Freesync on my monitor to connect my TV to my PC?

Dualshock 4 overclocking (reaching 1000hz polling rate)

Hello everyone

I have recently switched to a Dualshock 4 controller and I found out that you can overclock them to work on 1000hz polling rate. But I cannot seem to find a way to do it on Linux. I already tried editing "/sys/module/usbhid/parameters/jspoll", but it doesn't seem to make a difference and I can tell the difference when the controller is overclocked on Windows. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Btw I use Linux Fedora 36 with the default kernel on KDE Plasma.

Suspiciously Dramatic FPS gains -WotLK Classic WoW

So I'm a little suspicious of how good the FPS gains are that I'm getting in linux. But also I don't have a tangible reason to suspect it. It stays around 60 FPS and it's also looking smooth and good.

I am running Classic Wrath on two Dell Inspiron 7 gaming laptops. One has Windows, one has Linux Mint. The Windows machine I can't get above 20 FPS, and I'm pretty dang sure the Nvidia drivers are working.

I feel like I need a computer scientist to tell me what must be going on. The hardware is nearly the same. Intel 7th gen i5, Nvidia 1050ti... Slight differences on ram, slight differences in SSD speed (but they are both SSD).

The Linux machine is running Wrath very tightly around 60 FPS. The Windows Machine is about 20. The Windows machine has a gigabyte connection, while the Linux machine is on the same network but Wifi. its nearly an order of magnitude difference on the data speed and yet the linux machine is just running the game inexplicably better, like 300% better.

One thing though is that I have removed the battery from the windows machine. It had a spicy pillow and so I jst removed it and the Laptop only runs on AC power. I'm wondering if that is putting the GPU on some kind of voltage diet? I've really taken care with installing the drivers. I don't know what else it could be but I'm absolutely shocked at the dramatic increase in performance that I'm getting in Linux

Dualsense vs Logitech F310 gamepad?

I want to buy a new gamepad to use for games that don't need mouse.

Choice is basically between 2 in title. F310 is cheap, inexpensive, with solid Dpad and is plug and play, but has mushy buttons, very stiff dpad and bad triggers. Dualsense on the other hand is wireless, has all the bells and whistles, much better feel etc., but costs almost as 4 times as F310 and doesn't have support for all the features (yet? I know driver is in the kernel, but I am not too up to date here).

Now, I don't want to buy F310, then Dualsense. But I also don't feel like spending 70 Euro on a controller.

Basically what I'm asking is, whether F310 is merely serviceable if one doesn't have the money for Dualsense, or will it be comfortable as the controller to use?

How can gaming on Linux overcome the anti-cheat issue?

I've recently picked up a Steam Deck and, while working around the immutable filesystem has been a bit of a learning curve, I've been really impressed how well Proton has handled non-native games.

However, it seems to me that the majority of games which have zero playability on Linux are those which implement an anti-cheat which isn't native or compatible with Linux. I'm just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on how this can be overcome?

The obvious answer would be that the anti-cheat developers should implement Linux support. However, without some kind of government intervention (unlikely, as desktop OS monopoly hasn't been a hot topic in the halls of power for decades now), it will require a business incentive.

With the release of the Steam Deck, I think that the business value of Linux support is highlighted in a big way. But I also feel as though we're yet to see real incentive for companies to provide Linux support in games which have no focus on controller-based gameplay.

Do you think that someone will eventually figure out how to implement a compatibility layer for these kernel-level anti-cheat softwares? In the same way that Proton brought widespread compatibility in the first instance?

r/Steamdeck soon overtaking r/linux_gaming - some thoughts

on 20 september r/steamdeck had 214.000 users. today they are 222.000. Same day r/linux_gaming had 231.000 users, today they are 232.000. Also comparing concurrent users, the first hits generally 5-6k, compared to the around 700 of the second.

According to these numbers, it seems r/SteamDeck grows of 1000 users per day, while r/linux_gaming grows of around 200 or less. So, round 8 October, r/SteamDeck will overtake r/linux_gaming.

The strange thing is that when looking at this data, it seems Steam Deck Users are more then linux gamers but we know that it's obviously not so.

To explain this, and make it consistent with valve statistics about OS use, we should imagine that at least almost all r/linux_gaming subscriptions are also r/SteamDeck subscriptions.

But concurrent user count says only around 1/8 of them are shared between this two subreddits.

So the question is: how can these statistics be explained, especially if compared to steam statistics?

  • Are there any more recommendations for more projects which I can help package? (Popular open source software which Do not have both flatpak and snap version)

What controller setup do you use for local multiplayer / couch gaming?

I like to play local multiplayer games with my family on our couch. We usually have two to four controllers connected, depending on the game. I've been working on removing Windows from our house and so far it's going great.

Currently I use Xbox controllers with the official wireless adapter. I am using the xone driver and I haven't had any problems.

It doesn't look like Microsoft sells the adapter by itself anymore. You can get it if you're willing to buy an entire controller that includes it for $70, which is absurd. Since the adapter could quit working and I have no reasonable way to replace it, what do you use? What is an alternative setup that I could deploy if I needed to?

[RDR2] Game wont open in steam

PC, Nvidia gpu, 5.19.10 zen kernel, playing at 720p with 1080 screen
Hello im trying to play Red Dead Redeptiom 2 (RDR2) with Proton Experimental (i have also tried 7.1 GE) and the game wont open. Rockstar launcher WILL open but then it will just crash.

I saw a post and also checked proton.db and it said it is now playable with proton experimental.
Any of you had this issue? If so, how to solve it?

Cyberpunk 2077 poor performance

I got the itch after watching Edgerunners, but my performance is trash. Across the board, on every setting, I don't make above 14FPS.

I'm running EndeavorOS with GNOME, Steam from the AUR, and using GE-Proton7-35. 5.19.11 zen kernel, and Mesa 22.1.7.

My system :


RX 6700xt

32GB DDR4 @ 3600 MHz

Installed on a 1tb NVMe Gen3 drive

First monitor is a 3440x1440x144 that I'm trying to play it on, second monitor is 2560x1440x144.

Currently installing Final Fantasy XV right now, as that's my only other DX12 game that I have to see if I get similar performance issues, but other games like GTA V, TF2, and Final Fantasy XIV do not have the same issue.

Anyone have any experience with the Playstation Plus client on Linux? I've successfully installed it but when I try launching it it enters a loop of telling me it may not function correctly in a VM and showing the logo.

I'm using Fedora 36/XFCE4 and used Proton GE 7-29 to install the app and wine 7.12 to run it (GE 7-29 didn't want to work). Any ideas on how I can even begin to bugfix this? Is it even possible?

My right trigger doesn't work

I loaded up Cyberpunk and realized my trigger doesn't work. In the Steam controller config it's not mapped, but when I map it and save it doesn't take. KDE recognizes the trigger pull. This is incredibly frustrating. Please help.

eGpu, anyone familiar why slow mouse?

The setup is awesome but I'm wondering why with the monitor run by the eGPU the mouse seems slow. The frame rate is supposedly 60 hz. I've tried every configuration but so far nothing works perfectly. Using X since it's Nvidia laptop and Nvidia 3080 in the eGPU enclosure. I'm using the egpu-switcher scripts. Any advice would be great.

Linux gamers, what is making you stay?

Hello everyone.

First, let me point out I've been daily driving Pop OS for the last few months and I love it!

No more Evil Microsoft pyring eyes and bloat and all that nonsense.

Freedom! Open source! I love it!

But I have a problem. There are still some limitations that I have a very hard time dealing with. I'm a simracer. ACC barely runs, my G29 works when it feels like so, forget about iRacing... Even other driving sims like ETS2 and ATS refuse to accept my wheel.

This makes me look a little bit towards flipping back to Windows, but the feeling of that is painful...

Help me stay! What aspects make you "stay strong"?

Will Apex Legends ever be fixed?

I play Apex Legends quite often, so it really bothers me when I get into a game of ranked after an update I didn't know about and my game is completely fucked for an hour while the shaders compile. And even after that process it is still not 100%, it is super stuttery, and it affects my performance greatly.

Also, the DXVK cache file thing is dumb too, why doesn't Steam/Respawn include that by default?

It has been this way for me since day 1 of support, and yet Apex Legends is "Steam Deck Verified".

Is it possible to run Frosty Mod Manager on Linux?

I've tried to run this thing a few times but no luck.

I've followed the instructions on this post and I've gotten to the point where it complains about not finding Origin. I could probably get farther than that but reading down the thread I've read it complains about NTFS.

I tried to google for solutions but I couldn't find anything there, besides the aforementioned post.

Has anybody managed to get FMM to work via Wine/Proton? Thank you in advance!

Classic WoW randomly crashing

Does anyone else have an issue of Classic WoW randomly crashing? This has happened before the whole issue with BattleNet started happening, and it wasn't a big deal until recently because now I'm doing battlegrounds and it crashes multiple times when playing a single bg. I originally had Arch installed, but I recently installed Manjaro and it's still having the same issue. Before I had installed BattleNet through Lutris, and now I installed it using Proton.

After it crashes, I have to force quit from Steam, and then restart it. I'm wondering if there is a way to check logs to see what is causing it to crash.

My Nvidia drivers and kernel are up to date.

This is on a 5900HX and 6800M. Over 15k in FF XV Benchmark Standard Settings. "Linux High" should be a measure of scoring now. Last time I ran this on Windows it was a little higher than 11k. How much more can Mesa improve?

NOTE: This is WITHOUT the RADV throughput 40-50% improvement which should wield 5-10% more FPS when it's merged.

GoVerlay on Zorin OS isn't great.


I tried to install GoVerlay by apt. But I discovered that GoVerlay isn't stable as the Manjaro does.

Every time I hit "Run". The app just crashed immediately or it just pop-up 2 different windows at the same time. Or both

Either of those could happen at the same time

My Question Is :

1) How to fix this crash

2) Does this always happen on everyone's PC?

3) Is this "apt" fault or the developers's fault?

4) How do you make a LogFile? Especially on Zorin OS?

5) do you recommend Zorin OS as the "main" pc for new users?

PS5 controller not working anymore with Steam Input

About two months ago I switched from arch to Artix and ever since then I couldn't get my PS5 controller to fully work like before. This only affects specific Steam games though that need Steam Input + Playstation Controller support enabled in the settings, i.e. GTA V. It worked flawlessly when I was still using Arch but since moving to Artix with OpenRC only games that already have built-in support for PS5 controllers work without any issues. Not sure if I might be missing some relevant software that was provided with Arch?

Another weird thing I noticed is that a Steam game with built-in controller support (Fifa 22) would always recognize the PS5 controller as an XBox one when enabling Steam input on Arch, but now with Artix it is always detected as a PS5 controller, doesn't matter whether Steam input is enabled or not. I am really confused as to why this is happening as I never encountered any issues with my controllers on Arch, it always worked out of the box. I think I might be missing a driver or a piece of software that can help with that. This issue happens over Bluetooth as well as when connected with USB. Other than some Steam games, the controller works perfectly fine with other applications.

Please let me know if you need any more information. Here is some system information if needed:

Artix Linux x86_64
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X
NVidia RTX 3080
KDE Plasma 5.25.5

And last, why some games that do not use EAC do not work on Linux?

Can I use the DualShock 4 touchpad in WINE?

I'm trying to play Spider-Man Miles Morales via PlayStation Plus installed in WINE. I have an official DualShock 4 v2. The game doesn't really understand that though, and I have several points in the game where I need to boot into Windows just to use the touchpad for a moment. If I don't use the touchpad, I can't progress. Just the regular sticks and buttons work, and I can use the touchpad as a mouse controller in Linux, but I haven't been able to use it in WINE.

Windows does automatically install drivers and detect it as a game controller. If you press the joypad, button 14 is shown as being pressed. I don't see the touchpad touches themselves in the Game Controllers part of the configuration screen on Windows. I don't know if PlayStation Plus does some sort of direct access and skips the Windows drivers, or if it uses the drivers for the buttons and joysticks as well as the touchpad.

Is there a way to make WINE fully aware of my controller? Maybe even use some sort of passthrough method? I don't know if passthrough or direct USB access would work though since I don't know what PlayStation Plus does.

NFS Payback works great, sort of!

RADV_DEBUG=gcc PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 gamescope -f -e -- gamemoderun %command% -mat_vsync

Only thing though, my PS 5 controller will not work no matter how I configure it using the available tools on steam and end up using a old Xbox 360 game pad and it worked fine.

I maxed out all graphic settings except for the post processing option which I left at high.

All settings maxed out at 4k 2160

For some reason when postprocessing is set to ultra it slows down quite considerably, not sure why!

Other than that the game works great.

  1. RADV_DEBUG=GCC - resolved audio issues I was having.

  2. PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 seem to have helped with performance

  3. gamescope -f -e -- This enables gamescope, it launches the game in fullscreen mode and automatically minimize all the annoying popups from EA's launcher from getting in the way. A must have for game that depends on ea launcher which starts before the game actually does.

  4. gamemoderun %command% -mat_vsync - I use nobara distro so can't say for any others.

I noticed with game mode on it,s own , games would be fast but the frame rate would be very inconsistent. But on all games I have tested with the above launch option I get really smooth gaming experience on all my games at 4k with great latency on a system with the following specs a RX5500 XT b350 board PCI xpress 3.0 8GB

2400g ryzen apu and 16GB RAM with sabrent 240GB nvme Samsung Au9000 Tv. OS GNOME on Wayland. Am using GE-Proton7-35 on most titles

My GPU does Rev up significantly with the above launch option but the games all play amazing at 4k on my modest setup. Before I needed FSR to enjoy anything at 4k.

I am still trying to figure out how to setup my edid . Bin file for my Samsung au9000 tv

GE-Proton7-24 for NFS heat works great -

Being that NFS payback uses the same game engine, may be the config file used for NFS Heat may also prove to be beneficial. Can't say for sure could be a placebo but it seemed to help performance.

NFS heat needs a user.cfg text document to add to -

common / need for speed heat

user.cfg ' contains the text below which is what my 2400g APU configuration is - the slowness in NFS heat is real this config file really sloves the stuttering.

Understanding Heroic Proton Prefixes

Im running a Steam Deck, using Heroic to access Epic games library.

What I dont understand is by default games install to Proton prefix paths like: /SonicMania

However, I cant find this prefix anywhere in the file system in Discover. I installed KFind and searched all hidden files and still cant find it. Even searching for all pfx folders cant find it.

If I manually change the path to something else, then I can actually find the prefix and verify it exists.

Im thinking that maybe it is using some sort of default shared prefix if I dont manually change the path. Is that correct? If so is that best practice? Steam gives all games their own prefix environments, so that is what I was expecting in Heroic.

I am a Linux User for years and also own a Steam Deck. As Valve didnt release a full release ISO for Steam OS yet I am not sure which distro to chose. I got experience with Arch and Fedora/RHEL. I read about Nobara and this seems to be the way to go. Any other distros I should take an eye on it? I got no gaming experience in Linux besides the Steam Deck.

Steam doesn't want to launch games

I have always run games like CS:GO on my Manjaro Installation from Steam. But now, when I tried to launch CS:GO from steam, it doesn't launch! I thought maybe I was running a very heavy game, so I tried to launch Virtual Cottage. But that too doesn't launch. So, I am sure this isn't a hardware issue.

I have tried to reinstall steam but the problem persists. What can I do?

Also please do tell me where do I find logs so that I can submit and maybe it will help?

SupraLand Problems

Greetings ,

I've installed SupraLand on Heroic Launcher. When I started the game, suddenly it ran like 2-6 frames per seconds with blurry objects. The brightness was a little bit too dark.

When I used a controller, I saw a 3ms delay for the game to recognise my controller's input.

I've used the Wine's compatibility and ProtonGE's compatibility. Both got the same results.

Other than this game , The Captain ran smoothly with Wine.

Gotta hand it to Gnome; I'd have never thought of gaming on Wayland with a Nvidia card

I play a lot of fighting games so latency is very important to me, that's why I was very skeptical with Wayland and its forced vsync.

After a few months I decided to try daily driving Wayland on Plasma. I tried for a day and immediately went back to X11... Plasma was very buggy on Wayland and just not a good experience. Kwin crashing, session restarting randomly etc

Made the switch to Gnome since then, and also because of preference. Heard it also had better Wayland integration than Plasma, and wanted to test it out eventually.

Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago, I hardly ever go back to X11 now. I don't notice any increased latency while playing on my ps4 controller, not on TF2 when playing with mouse and keyboard. Discord is a broken mess so I switched to the web version instead (Webcord did not work well for me)

The only thing missing for me it's the occasional stutters when opening up some Gnome apps, this is mostly due to the Nvidia card as this doesn't happen on X11. Overall, I'm positively pleased with Wayland and hope it keeps improving.

TL;DR: Thanks to Gnome I can game on Wayland with Nvidia without sacrificing latency and half of my apps. There's still some small issues but nothing that makes the experience worse.

BF1 unplayable framerates on DX11

Hello all. I'm playing Battlefield 1 on Linux right now. I own the game on Steam and using Proton-GE 33 for the game. When playing the game using DX11-DXVK, the game is completely unplayable. As soon as I load into a match, I'm stuck at around 6fps (ultra settings). I let the game run for about 10 minutes, to see if it was a shader cache issue, but no. The weird thing is, the moment I switch to DX12, the game runs perfectly minus some performance drops from Windows 10. About 100fps on Ultra settings. one thing to note is that mangohud reported that on DXVK, I was only on about 50% CPU usage and 70% GPU, whereas on VKD3D, I was on about 90-100% on both. Does anyone know why this may be?

I can no longer launch steam?

Hey so I'm running arch Linux i started my pc today and tried to launch steam but for some reason it doesn't steam to open. running steam in the command line shows this

[xanthus@xanthuslinuxdesktop ~]$ steam
steam.sh[63485]: Running Steam on arch rolling 64-bit
steam.sh[63485]: STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
setup.sh[63559]: Steam runtime environment up-to-date!

Any reason as to why this may occur?

Fallout Terminals MFBOOTAGENT as a splash screen for login?

Hi yall, Im on KDE Plasma with Kubuntu as my distro. I was able to make my GRUB menu look like the terminal, and my entire desktop and theme looks like a fallout terminal.

I was wondering if anyone knows where I could find or how to make a splash screen of this boot loading startup screen from Fallout 3/New Vegas. It would complete the vibe of my PC as right now I have no splash screen.

Its the string of text and keystroke sounds on the monitor screen when you attempt to hack the terminals ingame. Ive done a lot of googling around but have not found anything close. This steam deck intro screen is the closest example to what I am looking for.

Popular Lineage 2 servers that work with wine (or proton)

I am playing in l2 classic club with no issues, when I launch the L2 launcher with proton experimental through Steam.

However, I don't like the classic chronicle. I want to be able to explore newer places like Goddard, Gracia etc. Are there any servers as popular as l2 classic club that have other chronicles (etc high five, gracia, goddess of destruction etc) that work with Proton? Definitely looking for active servers too, that have a lot of players.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Getting OpenMW running with mods

I've got both the GoG and Steam version (tested more with GoG's version if that matters), and with either version i can get OpenMW running via flatpak no problem. Where I start to have problems is adding other mods on top of that (for example, Texture mods, Solstheim Rumor Fix, maybe Morrowind Rebirth). They show up in the OpenMW Launcher and everything, but when I tick them, no dice. I'm installing them manually because 1) I'm more used to it and 2) I doubt mod managers will play nice with Morrowind

Anyone able to point me in the right direction? Would appreciate it

How to store linux steam library on a NAS?

I have been thinking on building a NAS, and would like to store my steam games in it. I came across this video:


It does explain in detail how to do it, and why iSCSI is needed for windows. But, does the same thing apply for Linux Ubuntu? If I create a storage partition in my NAS with ext4/ , will Ubuntu recognise it as a local drive and be able to mount it so I can store my steam library? Or will it only see it as a network drive and I need to use iSCSI to get it to recognise as a local drive?

Hope I was able to explain clearly my intentions, I'm new to networks, and still pretty green with Linux.

NeonCode (a native game) how to get it launch on Steam? The symlink creation way doesn't work

This used to be the solution:

ln -s ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/NeonCode/{neoncode,NeonCode}_Data

But i had to use:

ln -s ~/mnt/17c8bb34-2769-47b5-b0b7-1fc31d849362/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/NeonCode/NeonCode_Data

because of external HDD. the symlink gets created but the game won't start. This is a Solus operating system. The solution used to work also in Solus as in Ubuntu.


Trying to launch from terminal gives:


" Set current directory to /mnt/17c8bb34-2769-47b5-b0b7-1fc31d849362/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/NeonCode

System info script for support threads


you were directed to this page, because you were asked to provide extra system information on /r/linux_gaming thread.

Open a terminal emulator (i.e. Gnome Terminal, Terminator, Konsole, rxvt, xterm), paste this command (as a single line) and press enter:

echo;echo;(uname -a;(lsb_release -d||grep . /etc/*_version /etc/*-release;grep . /sys/devices/virtual/dmi/id/{sys_vendor,product_{name,sku},board_name})2>/dev/null;grep '^model n' /proc/cpuinfo|head -1;grep -E '(Mem|Swap)Total' /proc/meminfo;lspci|grep VGA;echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE;glxinfo -B|grep -E 'Device:|Version:';vulkaninfo --summary|grep -E 'deviceName|driverInfo';pactl info|grep "^Server N";mount|grep -E 'ntfs| on / ')2>&1|sed 's/^/ /';echo;echo

Then copy-paste the output (including all spaces) into your original post (using edit function), so everybody can see it.


Ps. Why not inxi? It is enormous and not everybody has it installed.

Does mf-installcab work on Mac?

I wish to play a game that unfortunately starts with a cutscene that is encoded as a WMV file. The game runs smoothly with the sole exception of these circumstances.

After doing some research, I have discovered that mf-installcab is something that can help remedy the situation. However, the only help I've seen is for Linux.

Is mf-installcab able to work on Mac, and if so, how? What are the steps I must do? I'm very new to this.

Also, if mf-installcab truly isn't able to work on Mac, are there any ways to make my Wine Prefix play WMV files?

Keyboard not focused in game

Since a few months i have a problem that most of my games(AmongUs, Phasmophobia, It takes two) won't let me type since the focus is always on the app in the background.
So when i try to move in game, i actually write in the terminal or some other application in the background.

No matter what current proton version i use, i always have this problem.

I use Arch as my os, other than that, there is not that much special about my build.

I hope that someone has an idea how i can fix this problem.

Thanks for your help

Unlocking the screen causes the linux session to freeze

I am running a lot of games through wine/proton from steam. I've encountered a problem when I pause the game, go to get some snacks and the screen gets locked; once I enter my password the lock screen freezes and cant access my session anymore, I have to open a TTY and reboot my system or close the game from htop.

Is this common? Does it has a fix?

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to properly add a non-steam game on the steam deck and get it to launch.

The main one I'm trying to get working is GTA V, installed with Epic, though I've tried a few others not installed through Epic and had the same issue. I add the .exe as a non steam game, force it to use proton experimental, and when I click play it will briefly show the cancel button, not launch, and show the play button again. I'm new to Linux, so I might be missing sething obvious, but I've watched a few tutorials and can't figure out what the issue is.

Best Linux Gaming Laptop out there

I am a software engineer (SRE) and I am looking for a Linux laptop to use as my daily driver. My company has provided me a Macbook Pro, but it ain't cutting it for me. I feel restricted by it. I have been running my old ThinkPad for few weeks and the experience has been 10 times better than the Mac. (Mostly to do with window management and how fast cli applications are in linux )

Now, I could buy the HP Dev One or any of the laptop that does not have a dGPU, but I want to play some games as well. I mostly play League (please dont judge) and Apex Legends, I know Linux should be able to handle both perfectly alright.

So I have narrowed it down to

  1. System76 Oryx Pro

  2. Zephyrus M16

  3. Legion 5i Pro

Now, good people of reddit, please help me finalize a laptop. If you have some other laptop that fits my needs, suggest that too.

My number one priority is Linux hardware support, Gaming performance can be a bit lower. Legion has the best performance, but I don't really need that high end performance since I don't play that many demanding games anyway.

Oryx Pro looks like my best bet with the best Linux support, but I have read that it heats up quite badly

Help with overclocking RX 6600 XT on unmodified Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS.

Hello, so lately I wanted to overclock my GPU. I want to know these things:

  • How to increase maximum power usage,
  • How to increase clocks frequency,
  • How to increase memory frequency,
  • How to undervolt,
  • How to manually set fans speed at certain temperatures.

I already know the values that my GPU can handle, since I overclocked it before on Windows. I just don't know how to do it here, on Ubuntu.

Cyberpunk 2077 map lag

So currently (and always, as far as I'm tracking), when you open up the map in Cyberpunk 2077 the framerate slows down to a crawl and when you leave the map your current framerate is cut in half unless you go in and out of the map a few times. I've seen some other players report this on protondb, but I couldn't find anyone saying there was a fix or workaround. Is there?

How do I exit some of the open source games in Linux?

This tends to happen to some games, not all.

I'll launch some open source game, it opens in full screen, and none of the keyboard controls work for the game, but also, I'm unable to get out of full screen of the game. I can run all sorts of commands, but all other programs and the desktop are inaccessible because the game's fullscreen persistently stays up.

I had to CTRL+ALT+F4 to terminal and F3 back to desktop, just to 'killapp' the program. Is this the only remedy to games like these?

Bioshock Remastered - FSR not working because the game... I don't even know

So, there's a difference between "window resolution" and "internal resolution".The internal resolution is different from the window resolution, basically.

Bioshock Remastered doesn't understand that (Bioshock 2 Remastered does) and if I change resolution DXVK hud doesn't get scaled properly, a sign that the game is tampering the internal resolution, not the "window" resolution.

That pisses me off a lot, because I want to use FSR and that's the only game, apart from Devil May Cry - HD Collection, that doesn't give me a true resolution scaling.

Notice how the HUD remains like it's rendering at 1080p, while I'm rendering at 540p:

zorin gives me less fps

why does zorin os give me less fps its faster than windows but when i open a game i get less fps i have the drivers installed an its the right driver also i dont think its because i chose the power plan of windows to be ultimate perofmrance and added 64 gb virtual ram and installed quick cpu park control and smart game booster because as i said zorin os runs smoother normally its just the games

my specs are

State of refund requests for Take Two Interactive games on steam

Hi all,

So as mentioned 2 weeks back Take 2 Interactive (2K games) retroactively added a new launcher as an (unwanted) quality of life improvement to many old games. This has broken the Linux version of these games (such as bioshock infinite) and has also caused several issues with the windows version. This is a pretty sh*tty launcher change as well since it can be easily bypassed by just running the game executable directly. Despite this I disagree with this change on principle and am interested in getting a refund for my purchase or otherwise holding 2K or Steam accountable for doing or allowing this to the detriment of users. I would not have purchased this game were i aware they were going to add this sort of unwanted breaking functionality down the line. I'm aware Australian law already gives consumers protections against this and valve has already accepted some refunds (others seem to have been forwarded as complaints to the relevant Australian regulatory institutions and should be investigated soon). The question for this post is whether anyone is aware of any other regions under which a refund is permittable for this change. For personal reference I'm in the UK so I'm most interested on this but if anyone has any relevant information for other regions then please share.

Looking for social games on linux

Heyo. Lately I've been on a social game craving but a lot of the classics seem to be giving me issues.

Garry's mod doesn't have any sound in the native Linux version, and the proton version has sound but performs worse overall for me to the point its not really playable on a larger server.

I couldn't get VRchat to work. It would load but I'd just get stuck saying it can't put me into non local worlds.

I've got a craving for a social game to talk to people in but I'm not having any luck on Linux. Does anyone have any suggestions

Popular Lineage 2 servers that work with wine (or proton)

I am playing in l2 classic club with no issues, when I launch the L2 launcher with proton experimental through Steam.

However, I don't like the classic chronicle. I want to be able to explore newer places like Goddard, Gracia etc. Are there any servers as popular as l2 classic club that have other chronicles (etc high five, gracia, goddess of destruction etc) that work with Proton? Definitely looking for active servers too, that have a lot of players.

Getting an Xbox One S controller work on Ubuntu 22.04.1

Hi! It's my first time using Linux as my main OS.

I have been trying to make the controller of my Xbox One S work with my PC with a fresh install of Ubuntu. I don't use cables or an adapter. I just want to use it with Bluetooth.

So I paired and connected the controller. It now says Connected in the Bluetooth settings and it recognizes it as a Joypad.

However, I can't seem to play with my controller even though it's already connected. The games I installed from Steam and Heroic have controller support.

I followed this video to disable ertm (which seemingly fixes the issue for most people), but I was unable to find any luck after following the instructions.

What should I do?

Can't buy Steam Deck because I have no phone number. :'-(

I have an odd problem. I just got the message in Steam that my preservation is ready to be purchased. And i was going through the steps to pay. But I can't buy the device, because a phone number is required. But I don't have a phone number at the moment (and it takes a while before getting one).

When reserving the device there was no note that a phone number is required. And I can make game purchases without one, so that comes at a surprise to me. I really want to buy the Steam Deck. What should I do?

I asked this in r/steam first, but it got removed because the post violates some rules. I am so disappointing at the moment. Steam support also don't have the correct option so I could ask them: https://i.imgur.com/yRTLwDR.png

The recent Glibc 2.36 update breaking EAC fiasco has inspired me to try Steam Flatpak for the first time.

I'm currently on Fedora Silverblue 36 and I used to use Steam as a layered package from RPM fusion. As you probably know, Fedora 37 will ship with Glibc 2.36 and according to this Fedora dev discussion, it seems DT_HASH is not going to be enabled for Fedora 37 unfortunately. I really want to upgrade to Fedora 37 when it's going to be released, but that means I will not be able to play some of my favorite games if I continue to use the RPM fusion package.

Previously, I was pretty hesitant about trying Steam Flatpak because I heard it had more issues than the repository package. But since I didn't want to lose some of my favorite games when I upgrade, I decided to finally try it (I've read that Steam Flatpak currently uses the recently released freedesktop 22.08 runtime which uses Glibc 2.35, so that means Steam Flatpak users will not have to worry about something breaking Anticheat for at least a year). And it turns out, compared to the RPM fusion Steam package, I actually have better experience with Steam Flatpak.

The RPM fusion package had some really annoying issues with the Steam client window: After I lauched it, it usually took forever to load the Library / Store page. And when there were game / shader cache updates, it also took forever to start downloading them. Sometimes it was also losing connection (there was a "no connection" message at the bottom of the client window). I experience none of these issues with Steam Flatpak.

Game performance is identical to the RPM fusion package. I even verified it by doing some in game benchmarks for myself. The only cases when there is performance difference are most likely due to different GPU driver version that Flatpak uses compared to system packages.

The only issue I experienced is when I pressed X to close the Steam client window. After I tried to open it again from the dash, instead of opening the running instance of Steam like with the repo package, it launched a second instance, so in order to completely close it, I had to close the second instance and then kill the first instance in system monitor. Tbh, not a really big annoyance because I can just minimize the Steam window.

So yeah, just wanted to share my experience. Overally I'm very happy because now I'm sure that I'll be able to upgrade to Fedora 37 and still enjoy some of my favorite games. However, if you're interested to try Steam Flatpak, I strongly recommend to take a look at its Github issues page and see if there aren't any deal breaking issues that affect you personally. For example, it still has some issues if you store your games on a separate hard drive.

issues regarding the World of Warcraft Dragonflight Beta

Both the PTR and the beta version of WoW Dragonflight won't start with any wine version i have installed (system, lutris, lutris-fshack, proton7, proton experimental, proton-ge), they all give me the error that I am using an unsupported 3d accelerator card... I'm running a GTX 1080.

I suspect this might be a wine issue with the new version rather than blizzard trying to eliminate a market for themselves.

It's an issue on both of my systems, the other running a Quadro m3000, which usually runs wow completely fine as well.

The PTR was also working fine a few days ago, just before they updated the login screen.

New build, need advice, have been out of the loop.

I have a really great AMD gaming PC that got f***ed up when my house got struck by lightning. It was a pre-built, and insurance says they'll cover a new one. So I have a few questions before I start putting my build together.

My preferred OS is vanilla Arch with SDDM DE. I tend to switch up DE/WMs, but I generally use GNOME. Any hardware issues based on this?

Any particular advantage of AMD Radeon vs Nvidia that has changed in the last year? I don't mind using proprietary drivers if the Nvidia open-source aren't ready for primetime yet. I ended up choosing a 6800XT with my last build and was pretty happy with it, but I wouldn't mind the ability to use nvenc encoding again (used to have a 1080).

I'm leaning toward the Ryzen 9 5900x. I know the 58003d is better for gaming, but I do use it for other stuff than gaming, and would like the extra cores. Is there any issue with using AMD CPU with an NVidia GPU?

I think that's all I've got. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Is it possible to "overclock" gamepads on Linux

I have been having some latency issues with the 8bitdo gamepad I like to use for retro stuff and have found on windows "overclocking" it (increasing the poling rate of my Bluetooth adapter) helps tremendously. Is there any way to do the same on Linux?

Bottles prefixes and Steam Proton

I am very unfamiliar with how compatibility works and the file systems regarding Bottles and Steam Proton. All I know, is each game creates its own Windows File system in /compatdata/ with a c-drive and stuff.

Bottles does the same thing, creates a c-drive for the windows stuff. Prefixes I assume? I dont know.

What I really want to know is, can I make these programs talk to each other more, and unify the wine folders? Or somehow train Bottles to run exes using the windows folders from Proton?

Would save a lot of headache having all windows related bunk in a single c-drive structure. But maybe Im misunderstanding the best use-case for these programs.

Im on Kubuntu

Rant: Current Anti Cheats are not a good solution

I have no expertise with Anti cheats or cheat creation, so please do enlighten me if I get somethings wrong

Currently, the anti cheats running at Kernel level puts too many people at risk and exposed just for trying to play their favourite game. These anti cheats are racking up in numbers, you can have at least 6-7 installed and more on their way(EA's for example) and more anti cheats at kernel level = more vulnerabilities

Not to mention that they disable us from playing a good couple of titles on Linux

I am so happy to be on Linux and worry a lot less about having these anti cheats, but for everyone else using Windows, this is just a security disaster. Note that I am not a fan of Windows or Microsoft, but rather just worried about the future of these anti cheats and the people who have to download them

Anti cheat creators don't care about your security too much, they just care about the game and how you interact with it

I still come across a lot of cheaters in MP games which have anti cheat "protecting" them. These cheats also need to run at kernel level nowadays, which puts the person downloading them at a huge security risk too

There needs to be a new way, a new method of dealing with cheaters rather than putting everyone through installing a good number of Kernel level anti cheats. Maybe some sort of immutable/locked container that the game runs in. I am sure that some people will still find ways to break into such a solution, but there must be a better way of doing it

Shatterline EAC no longer supports Linux

There was a new patch this morning and when the servers returned, I got kicked from games by EAC. I took a screenshot and posted about it in the discord and I was told that it wasn't officially supported so the update didn't have linux users in mind during the patch. Not sure what this means for the future of linux users and Shatterline, but they do not currently have EAC support turned on for us anymore.

As one of the people that bothered them to allow EAC support, I really hope that they fix this issue and will allow it again. It was fun for the 3-4 hours I got to play. We will see what happens.

Wine + DXVK FPS Is Capped At 60

Hey gamers!

As the title of the post suggests, I am not able to get framerate higher than 60 when playing games using Wine, however this is not the case when using Proton, with Proton I get 140-144 frames like I am supposed to get. I have so far tested this with 2 games in particular, Dark Souls Remastered and Blasphemous, both of them cracked.

Running Games

I am running the games through terminal in the following manner:

mangohud WINEPREFIX="/storage/Games/blasphemous_prefix" GAMEMODERUNEXEC="env __NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD=1 __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=nvidia" wine blasphemous.exe

The games run without any issues like stutters or lag but I am not able to get higher FPS. Unlike Dark Souls Remastered, Blasphemous shows a peculiar behavior i.e. when I launch the game I am getting 144 FPS till the "Press any key to continue" screen. Once I press a key to continue, the game goes from full screen to windowed mode and the FPS is capped at 60 from there.


As you might have guessed from the command that I am using to run the game, I am on a hybrid GPU system, so I am using the command above as per this guide.

However, when I run gamemoded -s in another terminal when the game is running, i get "gamemode is inactive" message. But if I run like the following;

mangohud WINEPREFIX="/storage/Games/blasphemous_prefix" gamemoderun wine blasphemous.exe

I get "gamemode is active" message. But makes no difference, the game is capped at 60 FPS.

Please let me know if you will need information regarding anything else apart from what I have specified in the post.

EDIT: I have installed DXVK on both wine prefixes.

FreeMazes3D, my FOSS/Linux adventure game (version 0.7.1)

I have recently released a seventh version of my adventure game featuring procedurally-generated mazes with 24 different puzzles that randomly spawn within.

This release is larger than many of the previous releases and features four totally new puzzles, plus two complete re-writes of two earlier, lower-quality puzzles from version 0.1. A number of other features have also been added, including improved interface graphics, better texture mapping on meshes, a primitive day/night cycle, and a feature so you dont see the exact same puzzles in back-to-back mazes. I also implemented many fixes for various glitches found in version 0.6.

If you want to try it out, a native Linux version can be downloaded from my github and played right away (no installation necessary):

battle.net on Lutris Sep 22, 202

Update on where things appear to be.

  1. Installing b.net on Lutris. the only way today I have found to install b.net on Lutris is to use the method in this post but instead of the 8009 folder, it will be the 8012 folder. If Lutris complains that it can not find the battle.net.exe file, you will need to download a copy of the Battle.net setup file from the Blizzard site and use run EXE inside wine prefix to finish the Battle.net installation.
  2. If you already have battle.net installed and running, you might be lucky this afternoon. One of the errors with missing ocsp***.bmime files with the 8012 agent seems to be fixed. To check if you are one of the lucky users, navigate to ProgramData folder and rename (don't delete just in case) the existing Battle.net folder to Battle.net.old. Launch battle.net from Lutris using the default lutris.7.2-2 runner or wine-staging 7.17 (only 2 I have had time to test, lutris-ge-proton7.29 did not work on my setup) and disable esync/fsync (on my setup, these enabled will lead to an immediate freeze of battle.net.exe either at this point or on the next launch). After the Agent.8012 folder is created, you may notice some errors log appearing until you locate your existing games or download a new game. Make sure you have the automatic updates turned off. So far I have tested this on 2 existing prefixes and 1 new installation. On all 3, I was able to update games which need updates (PTR updates but I wish I hadn't), and games that were not able to run because the play button was disabled became available. Once the real updates are complete, you will get to the same agent crashing loop until you pause that games updates (appears in the launcher as initialising then moving to reclaiming space then waiting for another update loop).
  3. The 7984 work around does work with lutris-7.2-2 and wine staging 7.17 runners when the file is immutable in the Agent.8012 folder. If you want to try this route, I have had it work by just dropping it into the folder, launch battle.net.exe and update or scan/repair a game.

The error with 8012 is still a call to something that is not found in your wine prefix. Hopefully the info becoming available will help someone with the right skills to look at Agent.exe executing on Win 10 during all phases (update, idle and game download) and compare the libraries called or referenced with what is currently available in Wine.

Your mileage may vary, I have not tested every possible runner or combo. The bad things are the esync and fsync, if you need these point the executable at your game directly and only use battle.net launcher if you need to update it.

SteamOS with Holoiso or another distro?

Hello! I recently bought a Lenovo Legion 5 with Ryzen 5 5600h and an rx 6600m. I'm a newbie in linux ( i tried it in the past but i had a lot of issues with it, one main problem probably was the fact that i had an nvidia gpu ) and I still want to at least try again to switch to linux because the amount of control and customizability that linux in general provides is amazing and since i'm pretty much a gamer, i'd like to hear your opinions: Is it worth to get steam os with holoiso installed as a linux distro or not? If not , what distro would be the best for gaming?

Running into severe, and mostly* consistent issues running Unity games on any combination of Proton, and Steam Overlay Settings


  • OS: EndeavourOS
  • LinuxKERNEL: 5.19.9-arch1-1
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core
  • GPU: AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT (navi10, LLVM 14.0.6, DRM 3.47, 5.19.9-arch1-1)
  • GPU DRIVER: 4.6 Mesa 22.1.7
  • RAM: 16 GB DDR4 @ 3600Mhz

I'm not entirely sure how the etiquette of posting tech support threads works in this subreddit, but it's the only place I can think of that I could potentially get some answers.

Ever since I've switched to Linux, I've noticed a really odd issue with Unity games specifically. When in-game my GPU usage spikes to over 99% if I have my textures set to "Full". regardless of any other setting I touch, If I have Textures at "Full" it will spike to 99%, and as well use all 6GB of my VRAM (not sure if that's actually the culprit here, or just a correlation).

I can have basically all other settings completely maxed out, and if I change textures to "Half" it will be a mostly** solid 60FPS. I've looked into it, and I'm struggling to find much on the topic.

*And to further muddle things, not all unity games seem to be affected by this at all.

The Forest runs beautifully on maxed out everything, 0 framedrops. Slime Rancher as well, both Native and Proton versions have buttery smooth 60FPS no issues on Ultra. Mind you Slime Rancher isn't exactly the most graphically intense game around, but neither is the likes of Phasmophobia.

**And to even further muddle things, the game that prompted me to finally post this, Ghost Exorcism Inc, has had a terrible issue with consistency with frames, and I've had exactly 1 launch with the game that had stable 60FPS. Setting the textures to "Ultra (High-End Systems)" for some reason, for only this one launch gave me 60 FPS. Every other setting, and even switching back to it, have yielded unplayable framerates.

I've created several albums of screenshots with MangoHud enabled so I can show what my system was doing in each, I can provide whatever logs may be necessary, I'm just unsure as to what I need to provide.

GTFO: https://ibb.co/album/kgnrrc

Ghost Exile: https://ibb.co/album/DgR704

Ghost Exorcism Inc: https://ibb.co/album/k4NTYw

Phasmophobia: https://ibb.co/album/McNkRN

To add some more context: I also own a steam deck, and outside of the actual hardware limitations of the device (it runs on like 25 watts MAX iirc), it doesn't seem to have the same issues I'm experiencing at all.

Any help regarding this issue would be highly appreciated. I'm leaning toward hardware fault, but I just upgraded practically everything else in my system, minus my GPU.

Elden ring on arch not launching

To preface I am aware of all the other reddit articles on this particular issue but after spending 2 days closely following their instructions i am unable to get Elden ring to launch.

What happens?:

I press the green play button on steam it goes blue beginning to load and when you would expect your screen to change the button is green again and no game is launching.

What have I done?:

A few posts said the only solution needed for them was to delete "1245620" in the steam compatdata but this did nothing and when attempting to launch Elden ring the file re made itself after steam re did the "first time start up"

I have also changed gpu's, co incidentally I just bought a new GPU going from my rtx 2060 to an AMD 6900XT. As I am often reading that AMD works better with Linux I held hope that maybe NVIDIA was my issue, nope.

I have also done a uninstall and re install

I have also renamed "start_protected_game.exe" to "start_protected_game.exe.old" as a post recommended. there are also some smaller things i have done that i forget.

I am new to Linux (2 weeks into it) but I'd like to think I would know if my issue had been addressed in a previous article. If there is any information you need to help me please ask.

Edit: I am a ok with doing a reinstall of arch but would prefer that to be the very last option.

Team Fortress 2 stuttering.

Hello. Let's start by saying that I'm new to Linux environment. Im running Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. I've installed Team Fortress 2, and I've noticed that quite often it stutters very hard. I don't think its related to bad hardware, since I'm running Ryzen 5 5600, Radeon RX 6600 XT and 32GiB of ram and the game is installed on SSD. I didn't experience drops in fps when playing on Windows. I suspect that this may be related to loading textures or something like that. I ask for possible solutions. Thanks!

Highlighting new Steam chat massages on the taskbar?


so one thing I really miss from Windows is having new chat messages highlighted on the taskbar by a glowing border around the Steam icon. I'm using Plasma and have "flash window when I receive a chat message" set to "always" but I'm not getting the flashing. But getting a message in Path of Exile will highlight the icon on the taskbar so it seems possible to implement.

Is there anyone that has this working on Linux? Is this maybe working on other DEs/WMs or on Steam Deck?

Wayland vs Xorg performance?

I heard mixed opinions about this, in benchmarks from phoronix it seems like xorg is ahead in most cases but i was wondering as to what are your experiences.

For reference, im using nvidia rtx 3060 but im also interested as to how amd looks in that matter because im considering switching now that fsr 2.1 is finally starting to look like a decent competitor to dlss.

steam to wine: explain like i'm 5?

hello all, i purchased a macbook a few years ago since i'm horrible at actually using a computer. now i have the issue that literally nothing works on it.

i'm very inept, i've downloaded winebottler (which.. seemed like the one that suited best?) and now i am trying to get a game working from steam that only works on windows.

can this even be done? i bought the game and now can't download it, so how do i get it into wine?

thanks so much in advance, i promise i have other talents LMAO i just can't figure out computers to save my life

Tired of my 3060 performance being trash

I've been beating my head over my desk for hours now. I'm consistently getting about a 40% performance decline via dxvk for games like Cyberpunk and Ghostwrite Tokyo compared to my windows install (something I am trying to avoid using).

It seems like I just can't get my GPU to be fully utilized like it is in Windows. Mangohud shows 60% utilization. When I turn settings down, bizarrely enough, the utilization goes down further with minimal frame gains.

I'm about to hop distros (using Zorin OS), but I just have a hard time believing the distro is the issue.

Any thoughts?

Every Proton game is quickly freezing with FAULT_PDE ACCESS_TYPE_WRITE. Common NVIDIA issue?

Hi, I'm sorry that I posted here and couldn't find the info on my own, but I'm at my wit's end. I'm hoping my post qualifies for the "general interest" clause in the posting rules as this issue appears widespread in forums.

  1. I'm on Manjaro 22 with Plasma 5.25.5
  2. 5.19.7-1 kernel
  3. Latest NVIDIA proprietary driver (515.65.01) for a 1080 Ti

After an indeterminate amount of time, the game crashes with an error in the journal.

NVRM: Xid (PCI:0000:08:00): 31, pid=19466, name=AirborneKingdom, Ch 0000006c, intr 10000000. MMU Fault: ENGINE GRAPHICS GPCCLIENT_T1_2 faulted @ 0x0_021c0000. Fault is of type FAULT_PDE ACCESS_TYPE_WRITE

XID 31 indicates a driver issue, and general consensus for FAULT_PDE ACCESS_TYPE_WRITE suggests some sort of invalid memory write from the application. Except it's pretty much every application I'm attempting to run with Proton. The time duration varies on the game. For example: Civilization VI could run for hours, while the most recent game I'd like to play (Airborne Kingdom) crashes within minutes.

It seems many users are having this error with NVIDIA in Proton games, and I see posts all the way back to 2019 about it. There are a ton of threads about this on the NV forums.

Does anyone have any advice? Is there a memtest equivalent for a GPU in Linux?

I'm a recent convert to Linux and have been running it for about 8 months. I have been so impressed with the functionality of DXVK and Proton until recently, and I truly believed I was never going back to Windows until this started happening frequently. I really don't want to go back to Windows, but being unable to play these games with my friends is an absolute deal-breaker.

Steam ROm Manager terminal equivalent?

I'm working on a little TV arcade box, it's mostly running Steam via HoloISO, but I can't get ther AUR Chimara to compile. Don't particularly want to mess with desktop mode since I don't have a keyboard or mouse attached, so I'm wondering if there's any way I can just SFTP and run SSH commands to add certain (of course homebrew and legal) items to Steam?

Problem with cheap-o PS4 compatible controller

I recently bought a cheap-o ps4 controller from an unknown brand called iQual (you get what you pay for, I know, I know). The only reason I bought it is because my old PS3 controller died, and I was using that to play on my PC and because I've been thinking on selling my old PS3 and needed a new controller to wipe out and factory reset the system. So I didn't want to spend a ton of money just for that and wanted to keep the joystick to play on my PC. The joystick is listed as PS4/PS3 and PC compatible -obviously PC assuming Windows- but strangely enough it doesn't work on Windows either (didn't fiddle too much with it). It's supposed to download some drivers (I'm assuming automatically because it doesn't specify in the user guide book) but it doesn't do anything and there is no sign whatsoever of an official page (hell, there isn't even an unofficial way) to download such drivers. Is there any sort of generic driver I could get on Linux to make this work? I assumed it would just use PS4 controller drivers that come in the kernel, but that's not the case it seems.

It's no big deal, if there isn't a way I will just sell the controller along with the PS3, I just wanted to double check if anyone here does have some tips.

The joystick model is iQual L8951 if that's relevant info.

Can't install games on Battlenet Lutris.

So after mashing my head against a wall for the duration of today, I FINALLY have Battlenet installed (hooray), but now when I try to install games, I just get the constant loading animation and it never actually starts installing. It even re-highlights the install button after a while underneath the loading icon. I understand Battlenet is a bit busted right now, but is this common?

Can't join online match after today's Shatterline update

I've been playing Shatterline for the past couple days, mostly without issue (apart from a weird bug where I have to restart my PC between play sessions otherwise the game won't launch). However, this morning the game downloaded a roughly 25 MB update, and I can no longer join any online match. I can make it to the loading screen for joining a game, the bar gets about 95% filled, then the screen goes black for a few seconds and eventually kicks me back to the main menu. Is anyone else having a similar issue after today's update?

It seems that they made changes to an EAC-related file about 4 hours ago. Could this have anything to do with it?

How to run Windows only MMO mouse in Linux?

Hi community!

I'm looking to move to Nobara but have identified one thing that is a major blocker - My MMO mouse.

I have a Titanwolf System modular mmo gaming mouse and the drivers are only for Windows. I've asked Titanwolf about Linux support and the answer is, we won't make it.

I'm guessing I could run Windows in a VM Box and use the mouse and it's software there, but tbh, I don't want to. I'd like to try going 100% linux.

Is there any way I can run the software in some kind of emulator? Any other methods? Anyone eles have/had this use case?

Thanks for the advice.

Real World Experience - 3090 vs 6900

So I was an idiot who paid MSRP for an EVGA 3090 FTW3 during the Crypto scourge of 2021-- this was right as I was transitioning away from Windows and I didn't know better. Now that I have been running Linux exclusively for almost 8 months, I can't stand NVIDIA. The drivers are garbage and I can't do anything with Wayland.

I'm thinking of sucking it up, eating my losses and trying to sell this and get a 6900XT. Since basically every review is on Windows, I was curious if anybody else had done the swap (30xx to 6x00) and what their experience was. I have a 49" Samsung Odyssey G9 Neo so I am pushing some pixels (5120x1440 IIRC) so I need something beefy.

Before I end up loosing even more (this is going to end up being a $2500 GPU sigh), I wanted to make sure I am not just trading one problem child for another. Are AMD drivers really that much better? Will I be able to ditch X11 and game on Wayland as long as I am OK without Ray Tracing unless it supports FSR 2.0? Or should I keep it and suck it up? Thanks in advance for the suggestions; no matter what happens, I won't ever buy another NVIDIA product as long as an alternative exists (RIP EVGA) but I have to deal with the now first...

Hearthstone on Linux, no Battle.net App

If you play the Windows version of Hearthstone using Lutris/Bottles/WINE on Linux, you might be having problems after a recent update broke the Battlenet client.

I have been playing Hearthstone on Linux using the following git repo's magic for about a year and have had no problems. Updating can be a bit tricky, but it works.


The README.md should have all of the info you need to get up and running with a "native" Linux client.

There might be a couple of pip modules that need to be installed.

If anyone has an issue getting this to work, paste a code-block here and I will see if I can help you.

Steam downloads quickly taper off in speed, Ubuntu 22.04, System76 Oryx Pro

I have this really weird issue where my steam download speed starts strong, over a MB/s and then tapers off to under 100 bytes per second, which makes it unusable. At the same time, the Steam download server tapers off to nothing I can stream video flawlessly, so it's definitely an issue with Steam.

I have tried DNSmasq, disabling IPv6, disabling firewall, and servers from Vancouver, Seattle, and Washington DC and they all have the same problem.

Does anyone have a solution to this weird problem?

Advice on hardware upgrades and optimizing for them

So currently i'm running an Nvidia GTX-1080 and a samsung display with Free-Sync running at 75hz. I don't believe what i'm using (pop_os) can actually support freesync but i'm not sure. Regardless i'm going to be running linux for the forseable future so i've been thinking about getting an AMD card.

Some of my questions are as follows:

If I get an amd video card like a RTX-6800 or 6900 would it be worth it to upgrade my display as well for something running at 125hz or greater?

Can I get free sync to work on my current distro or would a different distro support it better?

I really appreciate any input as both of these are significant investments.

Playing LAN Coop on single PC


There are some LAN Coop Games which I would love to play on local splitscreen. My idea was to just run to instances of the game where the first hosts and the other one connects to it. However, even when I host in game instance 1, I can't find it via game instance 2. Was wondering if anyone knows how to do that, ideally in a general way? If there is no general way because it differs from game to game, I am trying to do it with Borderlands 3 (I managed to somehow sign in with the same account on two separate instances and my PC is rather beefy).

Thanks in advance :)

Apex Legends low FPS

So right now on Apex Legends, after installing gamemode and configuring the DXVK files to fix stuttering, the game is running smoothly but I'm still only getting 80-100 FPS. According to an FPS calculating benchmark I should be getting an average of 163.

When the games running it's using: 60% of my CPU 7GB of RAM (out of 24GB)

Is this a common issue?

Wine cant play game RPG on Linux mint

I've only been using Linux mint for only 2 days from Windows because the main reason is lighter, I want to ask something
I have an RPG mode game but it's still an .exe, I installing the latest wine ver and when I try to run the .exe file it says "0024:err:winediag:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated" (more details in the picture) ,I tried to find it solved and tried to install winbind and tried to run again, then changed "[456:464:0920/145406.801:ERROR:gl_surface_egl.cc(840)] eglInitialize D3D11 failed with error EGL_NOT_INITIALIZED, trying next display type"

and finally I'm stuck.
Is there anything I have to install additionally to run the .exe game, thank you

AMD gpus on Linux?

Hi. I. Have been Linux only on my desktop for almost a year now. Just out of the fact that I still had it I run a gtx 1060 on my Tumbleweed install. I'm the future I want to get my hands on a newer gpu. Probably something from AMD for various reasons. I remember someone on reddit having issues with an amd gpu because it wasn't supported on Linux. Can't remember the post or what gpu that was sadly.

How is the experience of AMD gpus on Linux for gaming, emulation and productivity? Which gpus are supported on Linux? Is there actually good software to tune and control your amd gpu? Does smart access memory or whatever amd call resizable bar supported on Linux?

Decided to inquire about Battle.net situation with Blizzard directly

I preordered Overwatch 2 and have been excited about it for a while. I started Overwatch (1) basically the first week it came out and have played it constantly since then. I wrote Blizzard to inquire about status of Linux situation (and WINE/DXVK) regarding and if it was intentionally being blocked or if it was unintentional. I stated that if it was unintentional, I would be willing to wait prior to submitting refund request. If it was intentional, I would like to process a refund for my preorder. The reply regarding an imminent refund approval came through with a written note explaining that, after review, given the circumstances, the refund had been approved as an exception.

Not looking good, unfortunately, and I just wanted to share it with the sub. Take care, and RIP Battle.net.

Elite Dangerous- Constant Network Errors on Steam Deck


Completely new to Linux- trying to play Elite Dangerous on my Steam Deck turned out to be quite a nightmare. 95% of the time I launch the game, it throws the "unable to initialise network" error. It results in me not being able to play anything except the tutorials.

It is the Epic version, running through Heroic Games Launcher. Game's launcher usually takes a while to open but then it works as intended. Rarely the game would launch normally on the first attempt, sometimes it wouldn't even after 10+. Switching between networks didn't yield any results, same goes for coming closer to the router. When the game does spit the error, it seems like it is unable to detect my Deck's network adapter, since in such case the menu for it is grayed out.

Including the logs:

Undervolt CPU and GPU and use default settings according to workload

Hello, I live in a country where temperatures go above 28C even at night and when I have my PC on the heat in my room becomes unbearable.

To fix this I thought about having some kind of key bind that can undervolt the CPU and GPU when I'm just watching videos or anime, and overclock them when I'm gaming, this should also help with power consumption.

I have tried limiting the GPU usage using GWE, but I can't go any lower than 90%. For the CPU, I installed CPU Power Manager Gnome extension which limits it to 70%. Although this isn't a lot, I have noticed a difference, and know that if I decrease the voltages I can achieve what I want.

OS: Manjaro
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600X
GPU: NVidia GTX 950

I know someone probably has had the same idea, using something like amdctl, but I still don't know my way around the tool. All the help and advice is much appreciated, thank you in advance.

What's the story in 2022 as far as AMD vs NVIDIA for Linux gaming?

At some point, it seemed like the consensus was that AMD was the best choice for Linux gaming.

I've been using a 2070S for linux gaming for some time now, and mostly it's been pretty great.

Is the AMD advantage still real? If so, in what way is it better?

Garuda vs Manjaro vs Pop Os

Hello Reddit!

I have a question and am looking for personal experiences here. I have already googled the question itself but I want to read real examples.

Long story short, I have a KF intel cpu so no integrated graphics, along a Gtx 1060.

I am currently running Pop OS and things are going generally well.

After reading more on Linux and gaming, I feel very attracted to use a Arch (btw) based distro, so I found these two, Manjaro and Garuda.

So, what are your experiences with these? Should I switch? I don't mind the tinkering.

"Sound system initialization failed" when using Lutris

I want to play "The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing".

I installed the game through Lutris, but when I start it, in the main menu I get:

Sound system initialization failed. 

Please run dxredist from the game library. 

If the problem persists, please try updating the audio driver of your sound card as well.

If I start the game directly (*.exe) and use my system's default wine version (wine 5.0) the issue is gone.

But I would like to play it through Lutris to use some performance improvements, aswell as latest wine ge version.

Any idea what I could do?

Magic The Gathering: Arena missing in ProtonDB and Heroic Games Launcher.

I am trying to learn how to play MtG through their Arena game, and so far it seems to run flawlessly on Linux (haven't tested multiplayer yet) through the Lutris install. The game is also available via Epic Games Store and I might be interested in installing it from there via Heroic Games Launcher so that I can keep all my game installs down to Steam and Heroic. The strange thing is that the game does not appear on Heroic even though it is in my Epic library. The game is also not found in ProtonDB. Does anyone know why this is? This is a first for me.

I did the usual calibration and stuff but when I got into game, I noticed that it was recognizing it as an xbox controller and wouldn't recognize certain axes or buttons.

When I tested the joystick out in Antimicrox, the axes worked just fine and it detected pretty much everything without a hitch.

Does anyone know how I can get Elite Dangerous to see the joystick as a proper joystick and not as an xbox controller? I'd even settle for just having the missing axes show up in game.

EDIT: I have a thrustmaster T16000m flight stick too and that works ootb just fine. Everything works as expected with it. So I'm puzzled why the VKB one wouldn't work in the same way.

Unable to set powercap with AMD GPU overclocking.

Hi everyone. I am posting here to see if anyone else has run into this. It seems despite having set overclocking featuremask in my grub boot, I am unable to set power cap. I can set clock speeds, voltage, etc, but the power cap will not take. I feel that in the past this used to work as I used to hit 293 in mangohud and used to have a higher clock speed reported around 2750mhz for my 6900xt. Below are specs and screenshots of this in action. I feel it probably was working around 5.12.x kernel version but I have no proof of that. I have a second GPU (6600xt) for a windows VM, but it gets the VFIO dummy driver at boot. I tried unplugging it to see if it mattered, but it doesn't. Just straight up seems to be something that changed from the past kernel or driver updates.

Image shows the 255W limit. Just also to note, if I set the power cap to say 69 watts, it still stays at 255w. Only when I decrease the clock speed setting do you see the power usage decrease like if I set to 1800mhz.

Anyway to keep myself from gaming?

So I love to play rocket league. I uninstalled it a little while back and I found that I wasn't so irritated. Rocket League, while fun was also irritating because of my frustration with my performance, bad teammates, general toxicity, and so on and so forth.

Anyways a friend asked me to play so I installed and have been playing a few games each day. The only issue is that I am playing a little more each day.

I keep finding myself saying, "Eh, one more game".

Since I'd like to keep that at bay, is there some way to kill the game after 20 minutes of play and then keep it from launching again?

Some kind of parental controls, or some way to add limitations to my game time?

Thanks for any help

Got WOLK Classic WoW running, now I want addons...

I'm finding an uncommon amount of leads online suggesting this is easy but I'm being foiled at every turn.

Overwolf has a client download even. wtf am I supposed to do with that .zip? I tried even extracting the image file and installing that via lutris.

Not to mention lutris has 3 different guides on installing overwolf. The most recent of which has a bunch of jokes, which is great, but doesn't help me.

Also on youtube there are a lot of alternative solutions that even use the command line. But they seem tailored to minecraft whereas the overwolf download from the official website was made just for WoW.

I'm confused, Lutris doesn't work, the download is a .zip... How can I install addons for WoW!? Halp!!!

Black screen on SteamOS(steamdeck) with Linux game?

Hello! So I've been playing around with steamdeck, and unreal engine 5, building a Linux game using a latest toolchain, but everytime I send the tittle to deck using steam OS dev kit, and lunch it, I get a blackscreen, and after about 15 seconds, it closes, I tried to use "-fullscreen", messing with resolution, vulkan enabled, nothing seems to launch it, anyone came across this? Any recommendations?

I have been using Debian Stable/11 as my primary gaming platform since it was released and it is working surprisingly well

Everything just work after I have configured Debian according to my needs. The only downside is that Proton experimental dont work on my machine but since none of the games I play requires that new version of Proton then I dont have a problem.

All the games just run smoothly.

And before people say that I am missing out on optimization then remember that I have:

Intel i7 4770s

nVidia GTX 1070

4*4 gb ram

So all the optimization been optimized years ago

Wabbajack and Wine/Proton (unable to find any games)

I'm just wondering if anyone out there knows how to resolve the issue with wabbajack not able to detect games. I do of cause run the game first in any prefix I setup to test this.

I'm thinking there is some sort of missing dependency that causes the game finder from working as it does produce some Json error initially.

I'm not doing anything special to the prefix except setting up the game with Proton-GE initially and setting the config up and launching game initially.

I shouldn't need .NET installed do I? I do know Wabbajack won't render correctly without WineD3D, that much I know.

Wayland, KDE, Ubuntu base

As the title says, i want a distro or a way to modify kubuntu for example to get Wayland with Kde and an ubuntu base. (Nvidia rtx 2060)

Why Wayland? I have a 4k monitor and 2 1080p monitors and i need per monitor scaling.

Why Kde? I just like it better, ok?

Why Ubuntu based? Most apps are available for ubuntu and i like the apt manager. Also it seems very stable.

So ive tried it on kubuntu, the result was a black screen... arch, unstable.... kde neon, very very long loading time and sometimes a black screen...

with the main purpose being gaming i thought it post it here.

Any help is welcome!

Borked drivers. Any way to avoid reinstall?

Hey all,

I was trying to get wrath classic up to date before the launch in a couple of weeks, but was having an issue where the update would just hang at 0% saying it was waiting for an update that doesn't seem to exist. So I tried fixing the download, did nothing, tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game, which failed to install, and then trying to uninstall the Battle net app from Lutris and reinstall that. That failed as well and gave the error "We're having trouble launching the Blizzard Update Agent"

Checked the github on that here https://github.com/lutris/docs/blob/master/Battle.Net.md#were-having-trouble-launching-the-blizzard-update-agent and it says:

"This is caused by broken or missing installation of 32-bit nvidia-utils (or mesa)

It's a very common problem among users who attemped to install Nvidia driver using .run file. To fix it, it's suggested to completely reinstall your system and get drivers from repositories instead."

I've got a AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT and I'm running Fedora 36. Everything is up to date and I've restarted my machine. Basically, am I screwed and have to do a whole reinstall here or is there a way to fix the drivers without a full reinstall? Anyone else run into this?

Thanks in advance for any and all help or advice.

Preferred gaming controllers for multiplayer(local)

I'm looking to replace my aging Xbox 360 controllers. I use them frequently for playing games with friends that visit.. The OS I use primarily is Ubuntu.

I was considering Xbox One controllers but I don't have access to any to test. Due to my setup wireless is mandatory.

The basic criteria I'm looking for:

  • Decent quality
  • Wireless
  • Capable of multiple controllers attached simultaneously
  • Minimal to no effort to get working preferably plug and play.

Questions about Xbox One controllers:

How are they compatibility wise? Plug and play? And if not using the kernel drivers what is missing the xboxdrv offers.

Do you use the xboxdrv or kernel drivers?

How it is with multiple controllers connected simultaneously (multiplayer)? In addition to this question how well does it work wirelessly? Dongle Or Bluetooth? My concern is that if I went with the BT route I might have issues having 4 connected.

I'm not against another controller if another brand meets the criteria.

Steam Proton and GPUs

I'm new to gaming on linux and thought I'd try it out. Just got everything installed (ubuntu, steam, drivers, etc), and I noticed that the game I'm playing (Cyberpunk 2077) seems to think I have an AMD graphics card (I got a rtx3080) so DLSS and raytracing are locked off. Is this just a quirk of running games on linux where the compatibility layer just assumes everything is an AMD card?

Interested About Switching To Linux But Worried About Game Support and Performance

Hello! So lately I've seriously been considering switching to linux, the privacy and control you have over your own laptop is a luxury. My problem: I'm worried about whether or not the games I play will support it, but more importantly if I'll get worse performance. My laptop isn't exactly the best, I'll put my specs below.

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7360U CPU @ 2.30GHz 2.30 GHz
GPU: Intel iris plus 640 (integrated)

As you can see, these aren't the BEST. All the games I play on my pc currently run well, but Im worried that they'll run worse on linux which I cannot afford. Does anyone know if this will be the case, and if so, how drastic it will be? Just for game support I'll give a quick list of the main games I play:
- Minecraft (Curseforge)
- Cuphead (Steam)
- Terraria (Steam)
- Kerbal Space Program (Steam)
- Fall guys (Steam)
- Risk of Rain 2 (Steam)

Shatterline has enabled EAC support for proton!

The Game has a couple of bugs that need manual intervention.

1) install d3dcompiler_47 with protontricks

2) set the wine Windows Version to Windows 7 otherwise you'll get connection error.

Other than that it works perfectly

How to get the driver for my ATI Radeon HD 5770 to work on linux?

How do I get my ATI Radeon 5500HD to work on linux? I found a page with drivers on ATI's website, but I can't seem to play any games with it and even though linux detects it, it won't be used for games. I also installed the old ATI drivers on fedora but it did not help.

I found some benchmarks of various games that the video card can run even in 2020 so I was hoping that I could use it for gaming on linux (as linux makes my old pc snappier).

How do I make the card work on linux when it clearly works on windows10?

HotS worked last night but not today

I have, of course, seen the shitstorm that is the new Battle.net update. Last night I was able to install and play Heroes of the Storm. I used the overwatch install script on Lutris, and the 7984 version of Agent.exe. I set the .exe to be immutable when launching Battle.net, and then removed the immutable flag once Battle.net had started so it could update. Otherwise, HotS would simply hang on "waiting on another update."

Well, I was really happy with how this turned out - but now today it is broken again. The immutable flag fix doesn't work any more for me. Regardless of whether I remove the immutable flag, HotS still just sits on "waiting on another update."

I have no idea how to fix this - and I am incredibly pissed off with Blizzard for leaving HotS in this state. I feel like this wouldn't be a problem if HotS wasn't bugged to always have """updates."""

For compeleteness' sake, I am running Arch on a 9900k with a 2070 super. I am using wine-GE 7-28. I have tried wine-staging 7.17 but it throws an error due to no esync or fsync support.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

How To: Multiseat Gaming w/ Streaming 1 Instance via Steam Remote Play

Usecase: You have a PC capable of runing 2 (or more?!) instances of a game, but instead of a 2nd set of monitor and input, you have another PC. Requirements: * 2 Steam accounts and licenses. You do not need 2 copies of a game. * A GPU that can run Wayland, as IIRC Xorg does not support to be nested. * A Linux user with sudo access and Steam account set up with the game you want to stream on host computer. Guest can be any computer. Steps: (guide assumes Arch Linux or a derivative, for other distros package names and paths can be different) 1. Install "xhost" and "doas". Also install "bindfs" if you want to use Proton. sudo pacman -S bindfs opendoas xorg-xhost doas requires to be configured to be used on Arch. see https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Doas#Configuration 2. Create a new user. The UUID and username can be changed. If you already have 2 or more users, UUID 1001 is likey to be used. Set a password. sudo useradd -m newuser -u 1001 -G wheel sudo passwd newuser 3. Allow the other user to access your display. xhost si:localuser:newuser 4. Switch to the new user. doas -u newuser bash -i 5. Set up the environment for the new user. These commands should be run on behalf of the new user. cd # Default directory is the dir of the old user, this causes Konsole to not work on 2nd user and should be fixed sudo systemctl start user-1001.slice sudo systemctl start user@1001 export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/1001 export DISPLAY=:1 # doas already exports display, this is unnecessary unless you don't use doas. This variable should be same as on host. export $(dbus-launch) 6. Start a graphical session for new user. I use KDE Plasma, however GNOME, Sway etc. should also work. Gamescope may require additional steps. startplasma-wayland 7. Resize the new Plasma window by dragging its edges. You may open System Settings and go to Hardware > Display and Monitor to see your current resolution. 8. Enable all permissions for the host's Steam library. My username is mr-victory, change appropriately. Also create a symlink for the new user. sudo chmod -R 777 /home/mr-victory/.local/share/Steam/steamapps ln -s /home/mr-victory/.local/share/Steam/steamapps /home/notauser/ 9. Start Steam on the new user. Steam will redownload itself, but it should detect all your games once it is running. Disable automatic updates for new user to avoid a clash between host's Steam and new user's Steam. 10. If you want to use Proton, use bindfs to trick Proton so it thinks it owns all files. Keep in mind that bindfs heavily tanks disk input/output so you may experience long launch times. Please inform me if you know a way to avoid bindfs. sudo bindfs /home/newuser/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata /home/newuser/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata 11. Start Steam on guest PC. You should be using the same account for new user on host PC and client PC.

Steam Beta

Hi All,

Tried to get DayZ running today, one of the websites said to log into the steam Beta, so changed over to the Beta in the Steam GUI, it prompted for me to restart steam. Now I get to a different looking log in screen, after entering my details it just sits there thinking.

Can I get back into the non-beta steam?

Thanks for anyhelp / ideas

(I have uninstalled and re-installed the flatpak)

Manjaro, ryzen 5, radeon 5700xt.

What extra packages does the Steam Deck have, and how can I install them? [Endeavor OS]

I'm told that the OS on the Steam Deck is based on Arch, like Endeavor (the distro I run). I've found that my brother's Deck runs much more of my Steam library than base Endeavor and Proton. I'm however more comfortable with my desktop computer, and don't have the money for a new game system. I must surmise the Deck has packages pre-installed that I don't, but theoretically should be compatible. I would like to know how to access them on my computer so I can play more games without resorting to something like dual booting.

Do you think AMD will be a better contender?

Hey there. So I find myself ready for a potential upgrade and I was wondering if you think AMDs new GPUs will be the better contender when it comes to features and performance compared to nvidia. I understand that some will say that AMD is already the best contender on linux. In desktop, I 100% agree with you, however, in gaming I find it at lack in ray tracing dlss and in content creation, encoding. Now I am not taking 40 series into consider but a 3090ti. Thanks to gpu pricing plummeting, they are more reasonable in price. Anyways, thank for taking the time to read this and potentially respond.

tearing on games with intel

guys, I'm having massive amounts of tearing when playing games with the compositor off, I've already tried to modify xorg conf with stuff like "TearFree" but nothing that I tried worked. Rn I'm having to play games with the compositor on, but performance is bad

Anyone else with this problems? Or with a fix?

Micro stutter in all games when using side buttons on mouse?

Ive set up keybinds for my Logitech G600 using libratbag+piper. For some reason, whenever I press one of the side buttons, it causes a small stutter in whatever game is currently open. Its only the mouse buttons that cause this, if I press the key that the button is bound to it doesnt stutter at all. Does anyone here know if theres a way to fix this?

However, i'm trying to figure out how to associate nexus links with mod organizer when its launched by launching fallout new vegas from the steam launcher.

Some weird findings about gaming performance with a Ryzen 5 3400G

I have a Ryzen 5 3400G and no dedicated GPU with 16GB of dual channel RAM at 3200MHz. Lately it has been giving me performance issues, and I was able to narrow down some culprits, however I don't know what to make of it.

I did most of my testing on Teardown, since it's a small game, but very demanding. I use Arch Linux, but I also installed OpenSUSE Tumbleweed on another partition.

Performance was atrocious before I began to look into it. It was great when I first got the system, but I apparently changed some settings that made things worse. These settings are:

  • Resizable BAR in BIOS
  • TearFree option
  • Gamescope FSR enabled
  • WM of choice

Teardown was running horrendous when I was using AwesomeWM with Gamescope with FSR, Resizable BAR enabled, and TearFree. I began to tick things off, and things began to improve. Disabling Resizable BAR made quite a difference in stability, but I saw huge gains when disabling TearFree. It was destroying my FPS and I didn't even realize it. Then, I disabled FSR, it was causing some weird stuttering, and then, I switched to Qtile instead of AwesomeWM, and the game works pretty much how I would expect. 30-60 FPS on 720p with low settings and 50% resolution scale. Yes, it's blurry, but playable and it has good FPS. I actually completed the game to 100% like this.

But why? Why do these settings make things so bad? On OpenSUSE I installed KDE. However Resizable BAR was disabled, and TearFree was off (or at least, I didn't set it myself). The game ran fine, but I could still observe that weird behavior with FSR, which causes stutter.

I don't remember this ever being an issue before, maybe it's a regression on the AMD drivers? I remember FSR to just work fine, no problems.

Also, I had enabled TearFree because on AwesomeWM games would have insane ammounts of tearing. I can usually tolearte a bit, but this was on another level, moving the camera even slightly cut the screen constantly. TearFree made this issue go away. I could observe the same behavior on Xmonad. However, Qtile doesn't have this issue, with or without TearFree, games are smooth. Whatever they are doing, seems to be working just fine.

What are your thoughts on this? I'll have to do more testing on more games, but at least I'm happy to have narrowed down the possible factors for bad performance. If anyone is having similar issues, take a look into these first!

RX 5700 XT making me go insane. Tried to make it work better, and made worse instead.

Hi everyone. Im on the end of the rope here already. Need help, dont know what to do. So im making another go at Linux, particularly Manjaro. Using it already for couple of months. Everything were okay, or a least i thought it was okay. Recently i decided to replay Cyberpunk 2077 and here where my problems started. First couple of day i player Cyberpunk with average fps between 40-50 on almost maximum settings. I added some mods, mostly related to gameplay rebalance and some visual changes to character model. Only 2 mods affected performance, increased LOD and better crowd density. They gave me together around 5 fps drop, so sometimes my game dropped to 35-40 in particularity heavy areas, but i was ok with that. Without those 2 mods fps was stable around 40-50.

My hardware specs:
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, Radeon RX 5700 XT, 16 GB RAM.

But then, i saw videos on youtube. Where people were testing 5700 XT with proton, and they had almost always 55+ fps even in heaviest areas. Most of the time it was 60-70. I thought because of proton overhead my game played bellow 50 fps, but turns out that is not the case. And my specs were almost the same as theirs. So. I decided to figure out why. Internet gave me no information, besides trying to install mesa-git instead of regular mesa + some launch parameters for the game.

So. I made a full update of Manjaro. Didnt do it for 3 weeks. Installed Mesa-git instead of Mesa.

Launched the game. First thing i noticed, I lost half fps. Game run fucking awful. 16-30 fps all over the place. 35 max in closed environment where it should've been stable 50. So, i reverted back to Mesa. Rebooted system. And it didnt helped, at all. At this point i started to panic. I deleted game's compatdata, where proton settings resides. Launched validation. After that relaunched game. Same thing. I removed all mods. Nothing helped, same awful fps. I put game on lowest settings. Didnt help either.(how the fuck?) My radeon-profile shows that my GPU works at 100% both core clock and memory clock. How the fuck i get fps that low? Can someone help me with this situation? I dont know what to do next. Wasted evening on this shit already.

HOTAS being recognized as Xbox controller

Hello! I just purchased some Gladiator NXT EVO sticks to play Elite Dangerous with but am having issues with the game only seeing them as Xbox controllers. I found these searching around to see if people have had similar issues:




I did the things outlined in those posts but the game still only sees them as Xbox controllers. The issue persists whether I'm on Steam with Proton or using the standalone launcher with Lutris. I'm not sure what I'm missing here and am hoping somebody could give me some insight or ideas about what's going on.

vkBasalt Will No Longer Receive New Feature Updates

I haven't seen anyone post about this on /r/linux_gaming, so I just wanted to let everyone know that the dev said this:

Sorry for noticing this mess too late, I blocked the guy now. I'll keep this issue open but to be honest, I don't plan to work on this project anymore. Feel free to keep using it. (I still use it myself and will try to make sure that it continues to work in the current state.) But I won't spend any time on improving the admittedly very poor user experience.

It looks like the dev will keep vkBasalt working as it is, but there will no longer be any more feature updates.

I installed Steam on Ubuntu via the App Store (Snap). I installed ESO and set it to use Proton Experimental. When I use the Play button, I get a brief Steam window that disappears so quickly that I can't see what it is, and then the button reverts to Play. Per running it via terminal, this looks to be the key problem:

bwrap: Can't bind mount /oldroot/home on /newroot/home: Unable to mount source on destination: Permission denied

The only suggestion I've found is to chmod u+s on bwrap, which did not change any behavior. Other suggestions? I'm passing PROTON_SET_GAME_DRIVE=1 %command% as recommended on ProtonDB but it does the same thing without that. Thanks in advance.

Cant find bottleneck

first i have to say that im quite new both to gaming on linux and gaming in general (except nintendo). ive got an ryzen 5 5600g, 32gb ram and am using pop os. gaming works very well on this machine, even without a dedicated gpu but somewhere is a bottleneck. if i play far cry 2, for example, with most settings on high and ultrahigh, antialiasing off and playing it in fhd and with fsr to 4k on balanced (but i tried it also with fsr off and other resolutions) and gamemode on i get only around 55 fps, sometimes its around 45fps, sometimes a bit oder 60, when loading its between 25 and 250 is say. BUT (hehe, butt..) gpu says around 80% max, cpu around 10%, ram is under 30% and the cpu/gpu-temperature is under 50C. Ive got similar problems with newer games, so i dont think its just multicore-problems. Oh and its in Bottles, Lutris and Steam and in my bios i selected that it should use up to 8gb vram. anybody got an idea what stops mi machine from giving me more fps? (i dont need more than 60, but id like higher settings or antialiasing on without falling down to 20fps)

Brave Vs. FireFox

Hello to everyone . Hopefully you are well and still steady.

I am sick of Brave Browser Sync System. I have these question about FireFox (I know yall use FireFox). Does FireFox are privacy-focus browser? Or it's just a gimmick that any company are using right now. I know Brave are but it just painful where comes to syncing system. I've been researching about Firefox but I need Reddit Users experience as well. Cause I know you are genius then Albert Einstein. I know some creators like SomeOrdinaryGamers (Mutahar Annas), The Linux Experimental & DistroTube are using it. And I switch to Manjaro KDE. I tried Kubuntu, always lag. Thanks


Sorry for my bad English Grammar.

Insanely low performance in God of War and absolutely nothing else.

I am running God of War on a 3080, and a 12900k. I have the latest kernel, the latest drivers, and am using proton-ge (but this issue exists on all versions of proton). When I launch God of War through Steam or Lutris I get around 25 fps, on lowest settings and at 10% resolution scaling. It says only 2% of my CPU is being used, but my GPU is being used as expected.

I am using all of the ProtonDB recommended settings for both launch options as well as the steam play settings. Again, every other game in my steam library runs perfectly, and utilizes the CPU properly. I am also running gamemode but this issue existed before use.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Help Requested

I need some help. I am trying to play Skyrim special edition on Steam, but when I launch the game it won't respond to any keyboard/mouse inputs. Steam is saying it is connected to a non-existent Xbox 360 controller, I don't own, nor have ever connected a controller to this computer. I opened the SkyrimPrefs.ini file and changed bGamepadEnable=1 to bGamepadEnable=0, no difference. I can't seem to find any way to disable the imaginary controller in the steam menus. running lsusb doesn't turn up anything useful, the only non integrated device I have connected is my mouse. I don't know what is going on, what is tricking steam into thinking it's an Xbox controller, or how to disable it.

I am running Ubuntu 22.04 on a Lenovo Ideapad Gaming 15ACH6

Need help debugging performance issues on integrated AMD GPU

Ever since I've got this PC it's been a rollercoaster regarding performance. Firstly, specs:

  • Ryzen 5 3400G
  • 16GB dual channel ram@3200MHz
  • A320M-K motherboard
  • Arch Linux
  • AwesomeWM

So what's the issue? That I can't seem to be able to have consistent performance with this thing. I bought this like a year ago and I remember games to run beautifully, but they are performing much worse nowadays! How can this be?

I remember to play Wolfenstein II pretty decently at 900p, I replayed it recently and it had severe drops all the way at 720p, but still generally playable. I also remember GTA V to run very well, now it runs with various drops too. Teardown used to be a mostly 60FPS experience, now I'm lucky if it gets over 30. I don't understand what's happening.

I'm doing everything in my power to keep frames up, and I've tried a combination of things to no avail. I've enabled resizable bar in the BIOS, I've ensured the RAM settings are set by the ai tuner, I'm using feral gamemode and gamescope, I use the open source drivers, I just don't know what else to do. The system is installed on an SSD.

I also launched Teardown with mangohud, and while it reported 70-80FPS, it actually felt like 20, it makes no sense. Mangohud seems to think I'm running the game very smoothly but that's not the case at all.

So in general, I remember to be amazed at the performance of this little chip, but now? It kinda baffles me how bad it is. I don't know how to debug it. I did a separate arch linux installation on another partition and tried teardown since it's both demanding and small, and it seemed to run better... somewhat, but still not what I was expecting. I also found that apparently gamescope adds stutter and lowers performance, at least on Teardown. I'll have to make tests with other games too.

But seriously, could someone who has more experience with amd hardware lend me a hand? I just want to get the most out of this chip, and I know damn well it can do better because I've seen it do MUCH better.

It may also have something to do with the compositor? I'm using picom, although it is configured to be disabled when it detects a fullscreen application. I've tried to manually kill it too but i made no difference. It may also be the WM, I'm using AwesomeWM. I used to use KDE plasma before, and I just installed it and it feels like it's better? I can't really tell, maybe it's placebo.

Failed to initialize graphics

Whenever I try to boot up Bloons TD6, I get this error:

Failed to initialize graphics.

Make sure you have DirectX 11 installed, have up to date drivers for your graphics card and have not disabled 3D acceleration in display settings. InitializeEngineGraphics failed

This is the only game it happens on (even BTD Battles 2 works, a game on the same engine) and I have up to date drivers. The game used to work, but doesn't anymore.

Any ideas?

Problems with battle.net today

There has been a lot of comments showing up about problems with battle.net games starting today. It appears that Blizzard has updated their Agent.exe to a new build today. The new build is

You can check this by navigating to your ProgramData/Battle.net/Agent folder in your game prefix and you should have Agent. folders for the different versions. If you examine the Agent.8009 folder, there is a Errors folder with a bunch of crash reports. It seems that something is missing leading to an ACCESS_VIOLATION error and the crash of the Agent.exe. Hopefully someone with more knowledge of working out what file is being called can use this information to announce how to rectify this issue.

Diablo 2 Ressurected on Linux

Anybody else having trouble getting the game running? It was working fine since launch. I use it on Proton. All of a sudden, it is not working anymore and battle.net only boots up about half the time. I tried installing it on Lutris and I am not finding success. When it actually runs, battle.net gets stuck on updating D2R or it says Playing Now and then automatically closes. Anyone experiencing this or have a fix?

Illuminaria, a resource management game where you command a swarm of robots, now available on Linux

Hello r/linux_gaming

I'm one of the developers of Illuminaria, and I'm happy to let you know our game is now available on Linux!

We have a free demo, and the game will be on sale until Sep 22. I hope you can check it out. Here's more information about it

Illuminaria is a resource management game where you command a swarm of robots in their quest to save the world. It blends multiple strategy genres as it incorporates elements of tower defense, base-building, and auto-battles.

Illuminaria is a goal-oriented and finite experience. (It is not a sandbox game). We put a lot of effort into making it welcoming to newcomers to the genre, even though the game grows in complexity as you progress through it.

It is available on Steam, and we want to offer it in other stores soon. Here's our trailer. If you have questions or comments feel free to ask :)

The Ultimate Garry's Mod Linux Performance Guide

Through countless hours of arcane magic and goat sacrifice, I have finally bent the Source engine to my will. I'm not going to give you a billion cvars that may or may not do anything, I'm just going to give you the most important ones.

  1. Use the 64 bit version, obviously yada yada yada. Also the game is broken without GModCEFCodecFix so do that as well.
  2. mem_min_heapsize and mem_max_heapsize. This is VERY important, as it tells the game how much memory it can use (in megabytes). With kernel 6.0.0-rc5 with MGLRU, uksmd, and earlyoom (just in case), I can set it to 16GB (which is how much RAM I have) without issue. Here's what I have in my autoexec:

mem_min_heapsize 256
mem_max_heapsize 16384
mem_max_heapsize_dedicated 16384
  1. This one could get you banned online since you're editing the script that starts GMod, but I doubt it. Login as root and type ulimit -Hn. The number you are given is the max number of open files.

Go into your Garry's Mod folder and find hl2.sh, open it, and find the line that says "ulimit -n 2048". Replace 2048 with the number given by ulimit -Hn.

You can also increase the max number of open files in your /etc/security/limits.d folder if you haven't already, I have mine set to 128000. Here's the Archwiki guide:


Scroll down to "nofile", I have both set to 128000. And finally, put this convar in your autoexec:

filesystem_max_stdio_read 128000

Change 128000 according to the number you were given previously. Your game should load faster now.

  1. Ohhh boy. This is why Garry's Mod stutters. However, this is a singleplayer only optimization (unless you're hosting the server yourself). You know cl_cmdrate and cl_updaterate? They actually affect singleplayer too. I have no idea why, but they do.

These convars tell Garry's Mod how many times to update per second. So, it makes sense to set them to your monitor's refresh rate. They aren't locked to 33 or 66, you can use any number in singleplayer. My monitor's refresh rate is 78Hz (overclocked), so replace 78 with whatever your monitor's refresh rate is.

First off, go into your launch options, and put "-tickrate 78" in there. As well, Garry's Mod is not the best at detecting refresh rate, so put "-freq 78" in there as well. Then, go into your autoexec. Put this in.

sv_mincmdrate 78
sv_maxcmdrate 78

sv_minupdaterate 78
sv_maxupdaterate 78

cl_cmdrate 78
cl_updaterate 78

Note: I don't think you need to force the minimum rates to 78, you should probably put it to 0, especially if you're hosting a server with your friends, because it will most likely boot them off the server.

  1. If you have an AMDGPU and are using X11 (or Wayland with the mesa_glthread merge request, in my case), go back into hl2.sh. Below the ulimit line are these lines:

    enable nVidia threaded optimizations


Below that line, put this line in:

export mesa_glthread=true

Mmmm yes give me all the threads baby.

  1. There are a couple experimental launch options for both AMDGPU and NVIDIA. -gl_enablesamplerobjects and -gl_amd_pinned_memory have caused me no issues. The below link is for TF2, but the launch options I listed below work for Garry's Mod too. If you look at your journalctl or launch Garry's Mod manually it will tell you if they are supported/enabled correctly.



Also, it is unclear if -no_texture_stream does anything on Garry's Mod. I didn't notice any difference in performance with my RX 550 4GB, but you can try it if you feel like it. It's most likely TF2-only though.

Epic Games Launcher won't connect via Lutris; cannot connect to epicgames.com/status in browser

Since today EGL won't connect.

  • I tried to start Lutris from terminal, no unusual output.
  • No logs in Lutris as well (right click -> show logs: "exit code 0" which I presume is normal).
  • I also can not connect to epicgames.com, no ping either - but I can ping store.epicgames.com!

Any suggestions? Tried "the Windows way" and restarted computer, no change; tried different browsers (firefox, chromium, opera), none can connect.

edit: Debian 11 testing, could connect just fine yesterday and there were no updates today. Last thing I did was update Elite Dangerous.

Can I inject FSR generically into any game? And how do I do it?

Haven't messed with DLSS or FSR before but I recall reading that your able to inject FSR into any game, how can I do this on Linux with Nvidia drivers and my 1080 ti?

My use case is I'm running an older, opengl, native game that runs at one specific resolution (720p, the game is sprite-based so the devs weren't able to easily add different resolutions without redoing sprites). I was hoping to inject FSR into the game to run it at 1080p without any loss of quality.

I'm not concerned about performance in the slightest, the game could probably run on an Apple II.

Unsure how to manage multiple Blizzard games

So I'm enjoying an unprecedented level of stability with blizzard games. Funny enough what worked was just installing Heroes of The Storm via instructions from the Lutris website. But then I have installed Diablo 2 Ressurected and Diablo 3 natively from the battlenet app with no problems. So to be clear the file path for my diablo installs looks like:

/home/user/Games/heroes-of-the-storm/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Diablo III

But I just decided to give Warcraft 3 reforged a shot and it's not playing nice. What seemed to be a general solution is not working here. I can get an initial load screen with the lion. Then black with a cursor and I can heard some clickable buttons. Toggling windowed mode seemed to give a tiny bit of progress but not a lot.

What I'm trying to do now is install another virtual C drive following instructions on lutris. Is this necessary? Will it change anything? How can I clean this sort of thing up?

Any advice is welcome. I figured since its kind of a general question about handling multiple virtual drives that I wouldn't need to include specs and stuff but I'll include some and cross post with r/lutris

I'm Linux Mint on a Dell Inspiron 7000 gaming laptop that I've upgraded the SSD to a crucial brand m.2. Nvidia 1050ti GPU, intel i5 7th gen CPU.

Is this what a "bottle" is? having it in its own virtual c drive / installation environment?

Weird skipping in Horizon Zero Dawn

Hello folks.

I've been scouring the internet for anyone else having similar issues, but so far no luck in just searching, so here goes posting about it:

Basically, I just bought a new gaming laptop (Lenovo Legion 5, with Ryzen 7 5800h, RTX 3070, 16GB RAM), installed Linux Mint (20.3, kernel 5.15.0-46). Most games work with no issue, but Horizon Zero Dawn, specifically, exhibits some very weird behaviour. In menus, there's a weird flicker when moving between options, where the animation flickers a bit after moving the cursor - like it's pulling frames out of order occasionally. In game, it's much worse, with the game "skipping ahead" of itself something like every second or two. It's not exactly a stutter, because the game doesn't, as far as I can tell, freeze, and it really shouldn't be a case of low specs, considering the machine should be more than capable of running it at full blast. It's very noticeable in the benchmark especially. A strange outcome of the benchmark was that it reported 0 FPS for the CPU (and something like 195 for the GPU), so I'm not sure if it's a CPU issue somehow..?

I've tried with both version 470 and 515 of the nvidia driver, and several different iterations of Proton with no luck, and I'm honestly not even sure what to search for anymore, since all the responses I turn up are about updating drivers, the game, or the hardware, and, well, I've kind of done all three?

I've also tried gamemode (no change) and a few different command line options, again with no change.

Is anyone here plays CSGO on linux, competitively ? I have been daily-driving linux for a month, forgoing Windows completely. Most of my experience is excellent except this one.

CSGO acts a little bit laggy and I'm feeling the shots are registering a bit late. I hope there is an answer for my problem.

I am abandoning minecraft

Dear Linux gamers,

As the migration from mojang to microsoft for mineraft java edition is almost finished you wont be able to play the game anymore without having a microsoft account. For me, who deliberately deleted all my Google, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft accounts just few months ago this is a complete dealbreaker.

I find it extremely hard to abandon a game like minecraft that has accompanied my childhood for such a long time and where I spend so much time having fun with friends or just letting out my creativity.

From this regard we are witnessing the loss of an excellent and educational part of the gaming world to the tech corpos.

Bye Minecraft, I will really miss you!

GSYNC Compatible option won't stay enabled after reboot

Every time I log in I have to manually enable the GSYNC-Compatible (Allow G-SYNC on monitor not validated as G-SYNC Compatible) option. It doesn't save my choice.


I tried adding the following in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/xorg.conf under Screen>Option:
"DP-2: {AllowGSYNCCompatible=On}"

But that still doesn't help for some reason and it's always disabled when I log in.

Forza Horizon 5 with gamescope

So I recently completely switched my setups to Wayland and have since played my games with gamescope only, which has been working without problems. Although I have recently bought FH5 and noticed that the game seems to open two separate windows.
There is this one window that is basically just a black screen and then there is the actual game window. The problem I have been facing is, that gamescope focuses the black screen one and runs the actual game window in the background (can hear sound and stuff but I only see a black screen).

Is there any way to avoid this or maybe block/blacklist a window?

Battle.net No Longer Updating Games

Hello all!

First of all, I'm new to this sub, how is everyone doing? I've been daily driving Manjaro Linux for about 2 years now but only just found this sub. Happy to be here!

Onto the issue, as of 3 days ago Battle net will no longer update any games. The app itself launches fine and the games do too when they're already updated, however anytime I try to update anything it will just show

Whoops! Looks like something broke. Give it another shot.

in a pop up window, and that's it! It provides me with no further information, and this happens every time I restart the bnet app as every time I do it wants to update my games.

The only workaround I've discovered so far is fully reinstalling a game every time I want to play it, but that can be very slow on a 100Mbps connection! Other things I've tried are reinstalling my Bnet and wiping my Wine prefix, neither of which solved the problem.

I'm using Wine and the dependencies listed for Bnet from this list. I am also not entirely sure what broke Bnet, as this wasn't happening before, and I haven't updated the app or wine. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Playing control using DirectX 12

Hey yall!

I'm trying to play control (egs version) using DirectX12 so I can use raytracing (nvidia 2070 super). Just running the DirectX12 executable in the installation directory isn't working.

I looked in the internet and tried several methods like adding "-dx12" as an argument, disabling DXVK, adding the "VKD3D_CONFIG=dxr" environment variable and so on but nothing worked. It always either crashed immediatly or went into a blackscreen and I had to kill it using htop.

Can someone tell me which settings I need to tweak after a clean install using the lutris script for control? Thank you for reading.

Hi all, recently Ive installed PlayOnMac, added Steam, and disabled the browser. But for some reason Team Fortress Two (and Omori for some reason) still don't show up. Only Five Nights at Freddys 2 does. Again Ive disabled the browser, so thats not the issue. Does anyone know what to do?

I also get an error message saying PlayOnMac was unable to connect to Steam, so thats something.

Locked out of launching Judgment by Denuvo

Advertised as being Steam deck compatible but wasn't able to launch it. Tried a few different versions of Proton and they didn't work. Did an upgrade which installed new AMD drivers, probably the issue. Go to try again and I get an error message directing me to a web page saying I can't attempt to re-activate the game for 24 hours: https://imgur.com/a/qHugRfJ.

Just a heads up for anyone thinking of purchasing it. I haven't had this issue before, could be that Denuvo thinks the Proton container is a new machine and it hit whatever activation limit it has.

I'm fucking pissed because I wanted to play this and now I need to refund it on principle.

Wonky controller stuff

Hello. I have a Steelseries Stratus Duo. It can connect to my PC in 2 ways, either via Bluetooth, or wireless using an included dongle. My PC is set up mostly as an emulator rig, with a handful of PC games running via WINE. For whatever reason, the button mapping is seriously screwed up when the controller is in wireless mode, which is the mode I prefer. This is not a huge issue with emulators that run natively in Linux, as any button/axis on the physical controller can be mapped to any button/axis in the emulator, however when running Windows games or Cemu, a Wii U emulator, through WINE, the x/y buttons are flipped, and L2/R2 does not register whatsoever, neither as axes or as buttons when fully pressed. This is a pretty glaring issue and I'm not sure if it should be fixed via some kind of winetrick, or some Linux utility or config file. Curiously, putting the controller in bluetooth mode completely fixes this, however I don't like using bluetooth for 2 reasons: my bluetooth 4.0 USB dongle is trash, it routinely drops inputs if I am more than 2 feet away, and I don't want to buy a better 5.0 one. The other problem with bluetooth mode is that the "Home" button on the controller is actually mapped to a special key called "XF86HomePage", whereas in wireless mode it's just another "gamepad button", which I can have mapped to the Escape key using a utility called QJoypad, which allows me to use the Home button to exit emulators like Dolphin and PCSX2. This can't be done in bluetooth mode. I have attempted to get around this by using xmodmap to flip XF86HomePage and Escape, but for whatever reason this only works in the 2 aforementioned emulators, it does not close others like Mednafen or Mupen64plus. The wireless/QJoypad method works for those. So I would really just like to fix whatever the heck is wrong with the button mapping issue in wireless mode. Any help is appreciated thx

Having a lot of difficulty trying to find a good way to capture games on OBS with minimal performance drop.

I'm running Nobara 36 with KDE, and Judgment (actually, the whole computer too) lags REALLY badly when capturing it (both with software and hardware encoding), and Monitor Capture is black. The two methods that are used for more direct game capture just refuse to work for me.

With the most popular solution, obs-vkcapture, the plugin refuses to initialize. In the OBS logs, it tells me that it can't run on non-EGL platforms. But some lines before that, it literally says that EGL is being used and was initialized. Trying OBS_USE_EGL=1 doesn't change anything.

The only other solution I see from people is obs-nvfbc, which right from the readme on GitLab tells you that it doesn't work on OBS since version 28 due to the removal of GLX code which is required for NvFBC support to be added, and NvFBC doesn't support EGL.

So am I just screwed?

I want to run multiple (two) game controllers on linux - what is my best zero-hassle "it just works" option?

I have two xbox one wireless controllers with the MS usb dongle for PC use. It does not work. I have a shiny new opensuse tumbleweed install, and I have tried the xone packages but can't get it work. Not effing around with complex command line tinkering to get games controllers to work. My fault, the MS usb dongle doesn't have mainline kernel support, and everything is trying to hack around that problem.

So what is a better hardware alternative? That will "just work"...

Some data points:

PC has an intel BT/Wifi6 module and runs opensuse tumbleweed.

I need two controllers connected wirelessly, because this is for a htpc 'console' gaming setup. I know an Xbox One controller can connect via BT, but i think only one controller device can connect that way.

All useful suggestions welcomed.

Which is the preferred method of limiting fps in steam (proton) games

So, I've mainly come across 4 ways to limit fps.

Using libstrangle, using mangohud, and launch commands like "DXVK_FRAME_RATE=# %command%" and "+fps_max #"

Are there any downsides to using any of them, or is there a preferred method?

Workaround for screen and audio sharing with Wayland on Discord (and maybe other apps)

Recently I stumbled on a relatively easy workaround to share my screen and system audio on the desktop Discord app on Wayland, which may work on other apps too like MS Teams.

Install the packages obs-studio and v4l2loopback-dkms.

Open OBS and add a source for your entire screen or one window. Then click start virtual camera. It will ask for your sudo password to load the v4l2loopback module.

Go to your Discord call and open your camera. If you have a real webcam, select the OBS virtual camera instead of your real one.

And you're done. Now your friends can see your screen or window that you selected from OBS through your camera in 1080p 60fps.

Next, if you use pipewire, install the program qpwgraph and open it. Find the entry for the program whose audio you want to share. Then simply click and drag that program's L and R output into Discord's L and R input (Discord should show up as WebRTC in qpwgraph).

Now your friends can hear that program's audio coming through your microphone in Discord, effectively sharing your audio. It may not be as high quality as Discord's normal audio sharing, since this method is subject to noise cancelation or other filters that Discord applies to your microphone, but it's better than nothing.

How to force run Vulkan on 2nd Gen Intel HD Graphics

Now, getting straight into point, I am presently using a Thinkpad T420 which ran Win10 once. During that period of time, I used to play titles appropriate to my GPU (Intel HD 3000), like FC2, Fallout NV, GTA Vice City, Cuphead and Undertale. It ain't great, but decent for moderate gaming.

Now I completely shifted to Arch and tried doing some gaming using Proton, but seems DXVK doesn't support anything below Gen 3 Intel iGPUs. For a reason, ik Arch sucks less than whatever Windows was and I am not returning to Windows for good. I am not in a stage to put in any sort of investment for a better machine. Is there any way to brute-force Vulkan to run, so that I could at least play some ancient titles like FC1 and Mafia and call it a day?

Is it possible to tell Proton to run an executable as Linux binary?

So basically sometimes I add extra launch options to my games on Steam, and sometimes these other executables are Linux native, instead of Windows native. Steam however always tries to run games with Proton (unless the game in question has a Linux port) which means that it also tries to run these native executables with Proton. Is there a command line argument or something to let proton know that its being given a Linux executable? Or some batch script that lets me run a Linux binary?

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars' Linux version added to Luxtorpeda for Steam

Context 1:

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is a first-person shooter video game developed by Splash Damage and published by Activision for Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. [...] It is a spinoff of the Quake series and the successor to 2003's Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.

Quake Wars is a prequel set in the same universe as Quake II and Quake 4. New features include the addition of controllable vehicles and aircraft as well as multiple AI deployables, asymmetric teams, much bigger maps and the option of computer-controlled bot opponents.

Context 2:

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


u/d10sfan and jm2 have added Linux version of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars to Luxtorpeda repos. Thanks to that, native Linux version of the game can be played as a Steam game.


Follow the installations steps in GamingOnLinux article.

Additional info:

As ETQW has been delisted from Steam long time ago, it is no longer available for purchase. Also due to licensing issues, it became an abandonware which is still being played online by a small community in the evenings. It is possible to get the retail version and play it stand-alone or run it as a demo version on Steam via Luxtorpeda.

Unpopular opinion about Linux

Hello fellow penguins. I want to vent a little bit.

I know I'm gonna get crucified for this but hear me out. It's objectively a fact that gaming on Linux has improved like crazy. Over the last few years we went from having barely any playable games to having almost everything playable. I can legit count the unplayable titles on my fingers now which is f***ing nuts.

I decided to distrohop dozens of times this week and I'm sad to say that most distros have gotten worse over time. I feel like the devs behind each distro have lost their passion about it. So here are some that come immediately to mind for results.

- PopOS. I loved the 20.10 version of it. This version is the holy grail of quality when it comes to Linux. Even some of my hardcore windows friends even gave it a try and had no negative things to say about it. I absolutely loved it. Mostly vanilla gnome, it was buttery smooth. No hiccups, nothing broke ever. BUT 22.04 LTS feels awful. Apt immediately broke something (Not talking about the thing with Linus) with the packages as soon as I booted the fresh install of it. Cosmic is.... an acquired taste. May be good to some people, maybe it won't be. I didn't like it and tried putting vanilla gnome on it and something felt off. I noticed that Gnome was defaulting to x11 on my AMD card and it felt sluggish when compared to Wayland. 20.10 was great 10/10, 22.04 felt mediocre even bad sometimes 4/10.

- Manjaro. What the f*** is this? I tried both Gnome and KDE versions. KDE bricked itself after 2 reboots. I don't even know what I did, I just used pamac to install adblocked spotify on it and played some Minecraft. Gnome, is full of useless shit that no one will even use. I tried messing with custom kernels like Xanmod. Next reboot boom. Doesn't boot. Reverting kernel also didn't work. So I went away to another distro. Also couple of days ago I talked to someone in one linux subs and the dude gave me an entire link to shit the devs have pulled. Pamac DDOSed the AUR TWICE in the past. The devs have been dicks to some fans in the past aswell.

- EndeavourOS. Calamares was a pain in this one. When calamares launched I had to wait like 10 minutes to be able to proceed after the language selection. When I got to partitioning it crashed twice on me. Tried to install with a swap partition for hibernating and with swap to file which both didn't work. I installed after a painful hour and it felt fine afterwards, only hiccup I had was bluetooth which is disabled by default for some reason. And I gave up entirely.

- Void. Used to daily drive on main gaming machine. Installer was fucky, it's not calamares btw, Void has it's own ncurses installer. Wifi card WAS working but the installer refused to connect, had to go through some hoops to get it to work. Setting it up is painless. XBPS is THE FASTEST package manager. Bluetooth, printing, audio, GPU were all painfull to set up. I was missing packages and services left and right. But I guess that's how Void is like its name implies, it's so minimal. Gaming... some stuff worked some didn't. Mass Effect Legendary edition worked flawlessly, Minecraft did but wasn't giving any good performance. Lol was fine but Multiversus and KOF XIII were crashing and I didn't bother find a solution to fix them. I went with Gnome btw and this is where gnome felt the smoothest and the fastest. Gnome shined on Void. Which is ironic because Gnome used to heavily depend on systemD and Void has runit.

- Arch (btw). Decided to give this one a try after.... certain specimen decided to put in my face everytime. Archinstall crashed once but the other time it was fine.... ehh. Other than that Arch felt good. Everything was like clockwork. Got yay to run immediately. Minecraft, LoL, steam games everything was working. Also wasn't bloated despite going with Gnome. Overall solid experience 9/10.

- Nobara (Standard edition -> Basically heavily customized gnome). (Made by the legend himself GloriousEggroll). First time trying a distro with dnf. Games felt amazing. Everything else was kinda bad no offense to the guy. The whole desktop lagged sometimes for some reason. Was playing Minecraft with some mates and had music playing, everything is smooth for 2 minutes then stutter, 2 minutes is good again then stutter. This pattern was repeating. Dnf is slow, holy shit it makes apt look fast. Also doesn't feel as responsive as the others. Games were buttery but as I said the desktop lagged sometimes.

- Ubuntu. Snaps are bad I agree. Firefox was slow af and unresponsive. Tried getting rid of the snap firefox but for some reason apt was installing the snap version. Did some research on this apparently cannonical made apt so that when you try to install something it prioritizes the snap version. WHY? This distro has so much potential, but it's all hindered by cannonical.

- Artix. Oh boy I really want to love this one but I can't. It does everything Void does but in a worse way.

- This one isn't a distro but I gotta include it. GNOME. How did we go from the perfection of 3.38 to whatever the f*** we have now. It's slow first of all. Secondly. Horizontal workspaces? I mean I know about the extension but it conflicts with other extensions. Who wanted this? Hot corner? Why is the activities button there then. Also using super key to access workspaces feels so much more convenient as a gamer. Base themeing is garbage. Adwaita is awful to look at. The icons are shit, the top bars are shit. And you think "I'm just gonna apply a theme" Good luck with it... Now my windows are mismatched. Some apps are light mode with blue accents while other apps are dark mode with red accents.

But yeah this is my opinion.. rather vent for the current state of Linux and gaming on it. Gaming on it is fine, better than ever in fact but distros haven't gotten much better than their previous version, some have gotten even worse. If I'm wrong feel free to criticize me but be civil about it or maybe if I'm right and forgot something also feel free to add to this.

General questions about Wine Prefixes and Winetricks

Hi! I've been using Q4Wine and just recently tried Bottles as Wine GUI frontends, but the way they work confuses me: the Winetricks elements.

Q4Wine doesn't come with any prefix suggestions like Bottles, but the default "Gaming Bottle" upon inspection doesn't come with, just to name a few: XNA 3.0, 3.1, 4.0 Redist or Visual Studio Redists 2005-2017 (both x86 and x64). Back on Windows 10 I always installed all redist and it would let me play anything (KAO Kangaroo 1, Toy Story, Dark Souls 2D) without community compatibility mods, but on Linux there are Winetricks, that on Q4Wine appear as a huge list of (meaningless to me) name abberations with check boxes, and on Bottles as a bit more elaborate list full names sometimes with descriptions - both options with no button to "select all".

  1. Are there Winetricks presets to use all the drivers I've been using?
  2. Or should I just launch each driver setup in my Wineprefix for it to install and be available for anything I try to launch with Wine?
  3. To not repeat that process, can I import/export my Wineprefix between computers (possibly with different Linux distros)?
  4. Back to Winetricks addon selection dialog: is there an issue to be expected other than waste of space on printer drivers that I don't have?

I thought Wine is a pretty automated process to use, but with the amount of juggling I'm expected to do according to several guides (proton or proton-ge or wine or wine-staging or something else on GitHub...) I'd say it's one of most complicated things in Linux Gaming, harder than managing VMs. Is there a Winetricks GUI? Lutris on the other hand I read it creates new wineprefix for every app which I don't prefer and I don't know if I need in the first place.

Is it possible to run MESA Vulkan drivers for older Intel iGPUs on windows using WSL2/WSL?


Intel HD 4600



I did try Linux mint and Ubuntu and vulkan on my specs works great in linux but I just had this idea in mind

Elden Ring runs better on Linux than it did on Windows for me.

Just a little amazed/surprised is all.

Decided to dive back into Linux and Linux gaming when I installed a second SSD in my gaming laptop and installed Pop OS LTS 22.04 on the second drive.

Its pretty new (12th Gen intel i5 and RRX 3070), and I had no major complaints with performance in Windows, but I got the poor frame timing and occasional stutters.

All I did was install steam, set proton on (experimental), and I was playing at the same settings but silky smooth. It also seems like there might be slightly lower input latency, but that might be placebo effect.

Time to try other games, Id love to start gaming primarily on Linux and use Windows only for productivity and music (Ableton Live). I just wish G-Sync and Nvidia drivers in general were a bit more robust on Linux.

My Brother and I are working on a Game called Deep in the Void and released an Alpha-Version on Itch.io for FREE. We are supporting Linux from Day one! Go Linux GANG! We are happy to hear your Feedback! https://whacklandstudios.itch.io/deep-in-the-void

Hello r/linux_gaming Community!

My Brother and I have started to make a Strategy-Factory-Survival Game called Deep in the Void.
We released our free-to-play, 2D Strategy-Factory Game on Itch.io!
The Link to the Game: https://whacklandstudios.itch.io/deep-in-the-void
It's playable on Windows, Mac, and Linux
Link to the Gameplay Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LW79r0E0vIM

The Game is still in early development, but most people are already more than happy and spend a lot of Hours in the Game. We Would love to have more people playing the Game and are always happy to receive feedback from experienced players like you!

Check out this video to see all the features that are in the game already: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LW79r0E0vIM

Planned Features

The Game is still in early development and many of the planned features are yet to be implemented.

- More complex and challenging logistics, beyond cargo drones simply delivering everything where it needs to be automatic.

- Different enemy types and enemy bases need to be destroyed to make room for expansion. Alien technology can be salvaged from enemy bases.

- Many more buildings and technologies.

- Population and Crew mechanics. Most buildings will require a crew, and they need water to be sustained. You can find survivor pods in space to increase your population.

- The ability to manufacture and command AI-controlled spaceships.

- Energy system. Solar Power, Nuclear Energy, and more exotic technologies.


Deep in the Void plays in a Sci-fi Universe where you, the Player, were part of a Space Expedition with others from your home World. On your way from Platina X-27 to Frek Z-Y your expedition fleet was mysteriously pulled out of your Warp drive, destroying most of the fleet and heavily damaging your ship.

Fortunately for you, during the incident, you were doing an Inspection on a mining Vessel. After a couple of hours, you wake up and start to realize your situation. The mining ship's Artificial Intelligence Cora has started an emergency procedure and activated an emergency Station.

The Ai gives you control over the mining vessel and gives you first Instructions. She tries to scan the surroundings and tells you to start mining the asteroids close to the Station.

The goal of the Player is to construct infrastructure to help save survivors that are still alive and lost in the void. Defend yourself and your colony from enemies. The end goal of the Game is to construct a Warp Drive Device to rescue you and your people.

anybody else having issues with vortex mod manager?

hey guys, so ive previously used vortex for modding fallout new vegas on linux but not since like 2020 when i last daily drove it. i remember it worked nearly flawlessly back then but for some reason nowadays it just doesnt work for me anymore and im not sure why. for one, the lutris install is broken so ive tried to roll it back to a different release from github and now while it does finish installing, im always getting a deployment failed error so none of my mods work. this sucks because mostly i just use mods for texture packs to make the game look better since its pretty dated these days and im not really motivated to finish my playthrough without those mods lol. anybody else have this issue? anyone know any workarounds or vortex alternatives?

edit: for the record i have tried moving the vortex base path for the mods folder into the proton prefix that steam uses for the game, which ive found in a youtube video to fix it for steam deck specifically and no dice

Hey, that's basically it. I saw that EA play is just 3.99 but I wanted to know if linux is (officially) supported there and kind of surprisingly I didn't find a similar question on the internet.

Thrustmaster T.16000m FCS issues - maybe I should emulate?

So, I have a few problems with my T.16000m FCS and I hope you can help me. I am trying to play Simple Planes with it, but yaw and throttle axis, despite beeing detected in game options do not work on Linux (Fedora and Ubuntu tested). On Windows both work fine, also T-Flight HOTAS One works perfectly, but my fav joy doesn't. Anyone has any tips?

I also thought about emulating this joy as Xbox controller and use it that way, but for real, I cannot find any way to do it. I am using Bottles to play, and XOutput doesn't work without ViGEm Bus Driver, which doesn't even install on Bottles. Any idea how to emulate joystick as a Xbox controller?

Gaming PC has higher framerate but "choppier" than steamdeck?

Hi all,

I have a PC set up with Manjaro that has an i7 6700K, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and RTX 3060 that gets triple digit FPS in most games I play.

My steamdeck gets much lower fps at a lower rez (around 50fps usually), but feels MUCH smoother when playing.

On the PC I am getting more stuttering, and average framerate just feels "bad". It's like there's some layer of smoothing on Windows and steamOS that isn't happening here.

I have played around with V-sync in games / Nvidia driver, and nothing has hugely improved things for me.

Games in particular are FFXIV and Warframe. Using same version of GE Proton on both machines.

Any help appreciated, thanks

How to switch from intel graphics to nvidia gpu?

Hi I'm kinda new to Linux. I switched from Windows 10 and now I use Mint.

I have a geforce gtx 1650 ti and I would like to use it on steam and on minecraft but it uses mesa intel(r) uhd graphics (cml gt2) instead.

I tried a lot of things like installing new drivers but it says I already have them installed.

I typed "inxi -G" into the terminal and I got this

  Device-1: Intel CometLake-H GT2 [UHD Graphics] driver: i915 v: kernel
  Device-2: NVIDIA TU117M [GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile] driver: N/A

And then ran it.

But I can't see any new option in game. What did i miss ? Arch, steam with proton GE, nvidia card

Old 3D Possible Point and Click game for Linux

Does anyone know a game that looks like Radiohead's music video. I played this when I was 9 or 10 yrd and my family's PC was running Linux back then (~2010). I remember that a polygon weird looking guy (or person) was arriving somewhere foggy by a ship, it was creepy but really interesting. I wish I could find it again.

Anno 1800 worked flawlessly, then suddenly I can't launch it

I was playing through lutris. I played it for more than a year (last time was on Monday) without any issue, and now it crashes on launch.

Here is the log of the game : https://pastebin.com/aVCz9UaA

Here, the log after changing the runner to lutris-GE-proton7-28 : https://pastebin.com/Ys3NQhU1 (because, I don't know, could have helped. But no)

Here, the end of /var/log/apt/history.log, showing the latest updated package: https://pastebin.com/dH59dv6C. I don't see any that could interfere with wine...

I don't know what changed, why it won't launch now... Any tip?

Protontricks error: could not find proton installation

Hi,i'm kinda new to linux and i'm using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. I'm trying to launch Persona 4 Golden with "protontricks 1113000 wmp9 quartz devenum" i found on ProtonDB, but i get this errors: protontricks (ERROR): Could not find configured Proton installation!

protontricks (ERROR): Active Proton installation could not be found automatically.

Proton installation could not be found!

I'm currently using the Steam runtime application ( i found that this problem can be caused by the flatpak version) and protontricks 1.9.1

Krisp is coming to Discord on Linux!

This is quite a big news for all of us that use Discord while playing or just chatting with our friends on Linux! On the most recent Discord Canary update (early access branch), Krisp has been made available and works right away, without the need to use other tools to provide "good-enough" noise suppressor software, like Cadmus: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/hi0mw5/cadmus_a_realtime_microphone_noise_suppressor_for/

Here you can see it working: https://imgur.com/a/YTrGWVg

It is just just a simple on/off switch, like on Windows. This means that Discord is now even closer to the Windows version, which is great for us!

For those who are interested in testing Discord Canary, it'll be necessary to download the package from Discord's website (only the .deb is available, which works for me, given that I'm running Ubuntu 22.04). Install it and you are good to go! Link to download: https://discord.com/api/canary/download?platform=linux

(now we just need to have that lovely Wayland screensharing, also audio in screensharing, and it will be perfect!)

GPU fans not kicking on during gameplay

So I have a GeForce RTX 3090 in my desktop PC and the fans don't seem to be kicking on in Linux but they do in windows. I have a GeForce RTX 3080 in another PC and they kick on high in Linux. The one that doesn't kick on is an old AMD machine and the one that does is an Intel NUC extreme. I was thinking it was just that the nuc was poorly designed but the fans on my 3090 don't kick on at all, which worries me.

I cna't swap the cards, the 3090 is too long for the nuc, but I can put the same 3080 in my desktop if anyone thinks there is something wrong with my 3090.

Looking for a specific Linux Release(game)

Hi there.

i was wondering if any of you fine people out there have the install file for: watchdog 2 - LinuxRuleZ?

I've sat up a huge server where I've started adding Linux games for seeding. (Because it seems like Linux games loses its seeders really quick) So far, I've collected shy of 100 games that I've put on this server, and i plan on adding more as i go along. Goal is to fill up 15TB worth of games at least.
full file name is Watch Dogs 2: Digital Deluxe Edition (v1.017.189.2) + 29 DLC [CPY] [Uplay-Rip] [DXVK/Esync/Wine]
Watchogs2: Digital Deluxe Edition (v1.017.189.2) + 29 DLC [CPY] [Uplay-Rip] [DXVK/Esync/

I've been trying to get ahold of this game for a few days, but its 100% dead. (torrent)
i figured I'd ask here, in case someone have it laying around! if not, Ty for reading anyway :D

According to the latest Protondb reports, Crossout now works on Proton for the first time. (uses EAC)

This is a game I wanted to play on Proton for a very long time. However as many of you already now, there is a high chance it may "accidentally" work for a limited time, but in the future it may stop working again, as was the case with other EAC games if EAC doesn't load properly. So far nobody in Protondb checked for "success" message in EAC log file, so if anyone currently has this game installed, do you see a "success" message in EAC log file?

Lexip Pu94, how does it work for linux?

I'm about 50/50 as to if it's a gimmick or not right now, but eitherway I'm done dealing with windows' crap and I've moved my main PC for gaming to linux just a few days ago. On linux does the tilting aspect of the Lexip Pu94 just come through as if it were analog inputs from a controller joystick, or without the software is it basically DOA for anything other than just, being an overpriced mouse.

(or have you used it personally and, whether it works on linux or not, I shouldn't buy it, it's just a complete gimmick)

They say no compatibility with other OSes, but well, so does every company; the linux community is usually good enough to make "no support" turn into "no official support" pretty fast. Not having the accompanying software can of course present challenges,

Help with Fluffy Mod Manager

Im a first time Linux user who just got a SD, and am having trouble playing DMC5 with mods. I have mods that I downloaded and on Fluffy Manager they all pop up and allow me to turn them on/off.

However, the only mods that have worked are the ones that were preselected to download from Fluffy Manager itself. For example, I downloaded Neros DMC4 outfit as a skin and it works! But anything I have downloaded off of Nexus doesnt seem to work at all.

Now Im not sure what I did but now I cant turn off the texture mod that I did get to work (the DMC4 outfit), and even after I deleted the file it still hasnt been undone. Im at a loss at what to do right now and would appreciate any pointers!

I was able to boot The Division 2

Hi, everyone!

I was reading the Outriders's ProtonDB page and before the game was patched, one way of playing it was putting the "easyanticheat_x64.so" file from Apex Legends into the game folder. This gave me an idea: what if I tried to do the same with The Division 2?

For those who haven't the game or haven't tried to boot it on Linux, the game hangs on the EasyAnticheat screen and never opens. But after putting the Fall Guys ".so" file into the game folder (drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Ubisoft/Ubisoft Game Launcher/games/Tom Clancy's The Division 2/EasyAntiCheat/) the game booted!

I got excited. I was able to log in and select my character. But after the initial loading screen, to get into the game, it crashes with the "DELTA-03" error.

I really do not know if it is the anticheat blocking me from entering the game or some other thing. Searching, I read some inconsistent things about what might have been causing this.

Anyway, I know that the developers have to activate the functionality of the ".so" file on their side, but almost getting into the game made me have hopes.

Gamepad for Linux Gaming.

Linux gaming has be treating me well, I just bought a game on steam that's painful to play without analog sticks (Katamari Damacy). Which would be no problem if my 360 wired controler had not died in my hands when I plugged it in.

I need a new gamepad. And since I just don't want too much hasle with drivers/bad quality devices I just want to guarantee that what I'll buy will work as intended. I'm running a Ubuntu machine btw.

I need a wired gamepad (for some reason bluetooth just won't work on my machine regardless of what distro I use.), I'd like it to have a supported driver and hopefully a reliable brand that'll work for a couple of years. It doesn't need to be an official Xbox/Sony controller but I don't want to just buy a cheap knockoff brand.

What are some do's or don'ts of choosing a gamepad for Linux?

GTA V woes on one OpenSUSE Tumbleweed install

I have no idea why but it works fine on my laptop but it's broken on my desktop. Same install, same packages, same setup. Both have Nvidia GPUs, both have the latest snapshot from yesterday installed, both are using the latest Nvidia driver (515.65.01), have the right packages for Vulkan/dxvk, use X11, etc.

Singleplayer loads and even plays just fine other than when I go to adjust settings. The game crashes as it doesn't detect my GPU as having dx11/dx10.1 support. I've tried enabling NVAPI in Proton as well as setting the flag that unhides the GPU (PROTON_ENABLE_NVAPI=1 PROTON_HIDE_NVIDIA_GPU=0) with zero luck. I'm able to adjust settings for the game just fine on my laptop.

I've tried both Proton Experimental and Proton GE 7-33.

Again, these setups are identical to a tee. The only difference being one uses PRIME offloading while the other doesn't because it's obv. a desktop.

Any ideas on how I can fix this?

How to access hidden folders in Wine?


Trying to use ModAPI with The Forest, the only way I know of to mod the game, and can launch it through Wine only since it's an .exe. However, it can't automatically locate the game folders (understandable), but when I try to direct it to the path it does not show the .steam folder necessary to access the files for The Forest.

Anyone know how to access the hidden folders whilst in Wine? Thanks.

How is Solus for gaming?

I love Solus' desktop speed, boot time, and unique stable rolling release model, and for these reasons would love to use the distro as my gaming rig's main OS. I can find all the software I need and know my way around the distro by now, and can even get newer online games working fine, but the kernel is very very old (5.15), which I heard can cause some issues with certain games and lacks newer performance enhancements that come with kernel updates.

Trying to launch Among Us through steam open play 7.0-4

I've gone through the steam settings on the open play to enable everything and set it to the version listed in the title. I checked this site and there's a post from just yesterday that is using the same version on the same pop os I'm using and they said it worked perfectly out of the box. I've gone through several youtube videos and the instructions just insist on doing the steam settings nothing else to it. Another post on that same site above said they changed directories and that fixed it for them; I also tried this, but nothing changed. I've also tried using versions 5.10, 5.13 and experimental to no affect.

Whenever I go to launch Among Us it acts like it's launching says it's running but nothing ever happens and it eventually "crashes". I'm not really sure what else to do I'm really new to Linux currently using Pop.

I can't seem to get a Terraria server started

I can't figure out what I am missing here.

I have set a static IP address on my PC (, and I have set the port 7777 to open on that address as well. I am launching the server by navigating to /home/candroid_man/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/tModLoader and running the ./start-tModLoaderServer.sh command. Here is the entire server.log file: https://hst.sh/izubicucap.md. It is important to note that while this is a tModLoader (modded) server, a vanilla Terraria server results in the same thing, which is not being able to connect globally whatsoever (local connect works fine using or loopback)

Now, there is a weird thing I can't quite figure out; there is a second IP address associated with my PC in my router ( Just to be clear, my motherboard has Wi-Fi built in, but I have never once used it and even disabled the radio on my system using nmcli radio wifi off. I cannot figure out where this IP is from, the output from ip address shows nothing about (https://hst.sh/eqojeverow.pl). Note that esp3s0 is my motherboard's NIC, which I don't use (I use an Ethernet card which is esp4s0).

Within my port forwarding settings, I have added a new reservation making sure the local IP address, and MAC address match my PC, and the port 7777 is open using both TCP and UDP. I do not have an active firewall or VPN enabled, and I am currently on the phone with my ISP seeing if it is something on their end, if it is, I will just edit the post and mark as answered.

Is there a way to run Sonic 1 Forever and Sonic 2 Absolute on Linux? And if so, how would it be done?

As the title says, I'm wondering if there is a way to run Sonic 1 Forever and Sonic 2 Absolute on Linux, specifically Ubuntu, and if there is how would I go about doing it?
(Also if this is the wrong flair or subreddit please point me in the right direction to ask.)

Why Suse and Redhat don't care about laptops or pc gaming? Someone can say: They are in servers... well yes, Microsoft is in the server market and also they are doing a Microsoft Surface gaming laptop

I would love support and of course buy a laptop, phone or whatever with a RedHat/SUSE Logo behing but simply they don't care.

i hate this situation.

I want go to a random mall centers and see a stand with RedHat/Suse products like that happen with Apple and Microsoft

Unfortunately i'm not rich, i can't buy a company or create a new one and do this.. all i can do in buy their product...but...even i can't do that... that product don't exist

By the way... i got ilusion when in 2019 Redhat in the GDC did the next ( https://twitter.com/redhat/status/1108850839001747457 ) ( https://deifoexkvnt11.cloudfront.net/assets/editorial/2018/12/ad018485.JPG ) but again... nothing more happened

Issues with VR console in Half-Life: Alyx

Hello fellow Linux VR adventurers. Can you three lend me advice on how to use the VR console in Half-Life: Alyx?

I completed the game months ago and had no issues once I discovered how to start it properly. I was quite baffled that there seems to be no "chapter select" or the ability to create infinite "save states" like we are used in regular ego shooters. How should I present Alyx/VR to visitors? I want to show them certain train scene or some of the arena fights.

I know that there is the VR console, where I am able to change maps and "cheat" the weapon upgrades, unlimited ammo etc.. The thing is, I was unable to get it working.

  1. The launch options "-console -vconsole" or "-dev" seemed to have no effect.
  2. Changed the keyboard layout to English for the tilde key, no effect
  3. Tried to remap the console to another key, no effect
  4. Used the proton version of Alyx (that solves the sad Subtitle-Bug), no effect

After that, I gave up. Now I want to try it again. Probably I made some mistake.

Can someone confirm that the VR console of Alyx works on Linux? If yes, what could I have made wrong? Thank you!

Steam-Proton Games don't start

Just upgraded to mint 21, now all of my Windows Games on Steam won't start anymore. I tried to use every Version of proton and installed different versions of wine.

How do you support Linux?

Since there is not such thing as a free lunch then I am wondering how you support Linux?

I personal do:

1: Donate money to Open source projects such as (but not limited to)

KDE: ttps://kde.org/community/donations/

Libre Office: https://www.libreoffice.org/donate/

2: Buy hardware that is fully supported on Linux (preferable using open source drivers but closed source driver is acceptable if no better alternative is acceptable)

3: Using open source tools if available (eg now it is only games and steam I use that is closed source).

4: When buying games then I am only buying if there is a working Linux native version. If there is none then I skip and find another game

What do you do?

[Sync][Mir4Global] Where did the game crash?

Hi, I'm a newbie, I just recently used wine to play games. One of them is Mir4Global.

Yes, mir4 can launch in OpenGL+ mode (Windows XP mode)

But I want more, in my assessment, mir4 has less fps drop when using directX.

So I need to set windows version in Wine to windows 7/8/10.

But unfortunately something happened, mir4 can't boot anymore...

Detail: After mir4 finished the video intro, it was forced to close for some reason.

Ok, I remembered that mir4 has a steam version, so I downloaded mir4 on proton.

A miracle happens, mir4 is no longer forced to close! But it freezes after about 30 seconds!

after doing some research I found out that proton has a debug tool - "gdb", i used it, and another miracle happened:

All I did, it was Attach > cont and this game passed the 2 bugs I listed above...

Is it a divine tool? or wine(proton,lutris,...) is giving error?

I think this is a Sync related bug...

Have you ever encountered this error? how do i fix it?

I built a custom lutris wine build with a patch that allows you to play Soldiers: Heroes of World War II!

Hello! I recently bought this game on the gog sale, and I was disappointed I wasn't able to play the first game in the series of games I purchased (Soldiers: Heroes of World War II, Faces of War, and Men of War).

Using the information I found from this bug report on WineHQ, I found the patch needed to compile with wine. It took a while for me to finally get a build that worked. I'm currently running on Ubuntu 22.04 and had to chroot into 20.04 in order to get it successfully built since apparently the binutils version that is on 22.04 doesn't build wine properly with mingw. I compiled the lutris version of wine 7.2-2 (with fshack) and 7.2 (without fshack). I used both a 64-bit and a 32-bit chroot so each build of wine had every single dependency for a fully featured build of wine.

You can find my patched wine build here. Just unzip it into $HOME/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine and select a Wine version from Configure -> Runner options.

The game not only requires a patched version of wine, but also a dll fix that you can get here. Just unzip it into the same directory as the main exe. This will allow higher resolutions without throwing an error message. In order to use it, you have to go into wine configuration -> Libraries -> Add "dinput8" as "native, builtin".

One more necessary step, open regedit, and add:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Wine -> Direct3D (if it doesn't exist, create it) -> right click on the key and add a new String "VideoMemorySize" as "2048".

Or you can run winetricks videomemorysize=2048 in the prefix (for GUI, winetricks -> Select the default wine prefix -> Change settings -> videomemorysize=2048)

Let me know if this worked for you!

TF2 uses wrong keyboard layout.

I need help with this. My keyboard is Turkish Q 105 keys. Default key for changing classes is ',' in Team Fortress 2. With my keyboard, it used to work when I hit 'i' key but on linux doesn't work (this works fine on Win10, got a chance to check it somewhere). Weird thing is regular ',' doesn't also work here. Changing teams normaly works with '.' but with my layout it is on ''.

So long story short, I am using Turkish Q 105 keys while (I believe) game thinks I am at regular US English layout. Since like 80% of keys are at the same location in both 'TR Q' and 'US Eng' it is not the end of the world. However It would be wonderful if I had a workaround for this, like forcing the game to use a specific layout or something.

Thanks in advance, everyone :D

I had problem like this before and when I changed wine version from vanilla to ge in lutris it got solved but now I have problem with lutris with "missing vulkan liberaries" and when I ignore it and try to run the game with lutris-ge proton it does not work at all.

Anyone know how to get Cube, the predecessor of Sauerbraten, running on modern distros?

Hi everyone! Probably a dumb question but I love the original Cube, probably even more than Sauerbraten that came after thanks to its stronger focus on singleplayer maps against mobs, however I can't seem to get it running and would love to know if anyone knows how to do so. I've tried the Windows version via WINE and Protontricks but the game doesn't boot at all and after trying to build it from source the process seems to refuse to finish.

I used to play it a lot many years ago and helped to get me through a ton of tough times back in school so I've been really itching to play it again. Though it's a shame I can't find it packaged in any repositories, it's not even available in the AUR (I'm on Garuda Linux) or installable via programs such as Lutris. It's a massive shame that this game seems to be completely lost to time with no up to date way for people to easily play it.

DS4Windows alternative

I'm primarily using a DS4 for gaming on my laptop, and after switching to Linux, there're several functionality problems I'm encountering that was solved on Windows via DS4Windows

  • Globally warping to XInput for compatibility
  • Disable the touchpad mouse and per-app mapping
  • Gyroscope and touchpad config/passthrough
  • Hotkey/shortcuts for switching mappings/disconnecting the controller

While using Steam Input can solve some of those, it's not system-wide and not working properly for non-Steam games/apps and things like disabling touchpad as mouse is straight-up not available.
Is there any alternative or do I have to switch to Xbox Controllers and live with less functionality all-round?

Games feel sluggish on Mint 21 Cinnamon

Hi all

Please let me preface that I don't know a lot about Linux so please bare with me.

I've recently installed Mint 21 Cinnamon to get a feel for Linux. So far, every game feel like they're running at 30 FPS with horrible input lag, despite Steam's FPS counter displaying the contrary.

I've heard that Cinnamon runs a compositor by default, and I'm wondering if this is the issue. If it is, I have no issue switching DE's to say KDE or MATE

These are the games I've attempted to run

  • Left 4 Dead 2 - Averages 300 FPS on counter
  • DOOM (1993) - Max FPS 120 in setting
  • Painkiller - Black Edition - I know this games is kinda janky even on Windows but it has the same problem of feeling like it's running at 30 FPS

Okay, so this is both a bit of a rant and a serious question/cry for help. So I've been using Linux, Arch Linux specifically as my daily driver for the last couple years or so, and I, naturally, have been attempting Linux gaming. So far I'm happy with Steam and a couple of good native games installed, like Xonotic, Veloren and Blue Nebula (there are also some of my... questionably acquired games via "pure" wine, but I'm not here to talk about that). This is all fine and dandy, and I really enjoy what I have, but a question has been puzzling me the whole time.


Seriously, where? It is a Linux-based system with Java-based apps after all, there should be a somewhat good compatibility layer. But to my knowledge, there is... None.

I've first tried Anbox, but its revolting interface and snap-based nature have thrown me off, and when at some point it just broke due to something, I ditched it. More on why I haven't tried it ever again later. Then Waydroid caught my attention with its flashy and well-designed website, and an impressive-looking installer and featurelist. What I've experienced is an incoherent buggy mess that was painful to use, that required a lot of tweaking and community-bothering to even run a simple home control widget app, and when it did it was so horrible I again had to stop using it. I've finally resorted to BlueStacks, the leading solution for Windows, but I've harly managed to get it to install (in Wine), and most unsurprisingly, it didn't even launch properly, let alone run any games. Then, after reading tierlist after tierlist I've attempted ARC Welder, Genymotion and Android x86, but the former has been taken down and discontinued, and a quick Google search brought me nothing useful but this totally legitimate and not suspicious extension that I would definitely install on my Chromium. Really not shifty in any way, yeah. Oh and it also does neither support Play Store nor .obb cachefiles, so no games. Genymotion was very promising at first, but it was here when I've come to a final understanding. All these emulation projects don't actually emulate an ARM cpu, they just port the system and the binaries, recompile them, and call it a day. And most Android games use native binaries. Genymotion actually did some work on emulating a proper CPU, but it's so abysmally goddamn slow compared to an actual phone it's eye-watering. But BlueStacks had somehow managed to pull this off efficiently, and Linux's similarity to Android could be probably used to improve on that result, not to flop. But then again, it is unwise to ask too much about gaming of a commercial development emulator I haven't even bought a proper subscription for, just downloaded the official but still local version (AFAIK the cloud one runs on the real deal ARM so it's better). And it is even more unwise to demand commercial-level performance of what is basically a glorified chroot in a cgroup. Not that Waydroid, Anbox or their relatives are worthless, soulless, effortless projects that are hastily slapped together, no, they're probably great, it's just that I've managed to get games up and running on those.

Yet the question remains: how do you play Android on Linux?

It's not like this is a stupid question, lots of good Android games like Soul Knight or Standoff 2 or The Battle Cats come out every now and then, and some people would definitely like to play them more with a bigger screen and a more fluid, more familiar control system. Maybe I'm missing something? Maybe there is a particular piece of software I haven't heard about and it's goddamn great (what the hell, it took me half a year to find DuckStation, and that was by sheer accident). Or have I just overlooked something I've mentioned and used it wrong, or it has improved over the years to a point where my experience is now irrelevant, and it is The New Big Thing, so I should stop ranting on Reddit and go pacman -S it already? I'd really love to hear anyone's opinion on this.

Oh, and sorry for the English - I'm not a native speaker, and it's ~1AM right now in my timezone, so feel free to correct me, there might be some stroke-ish bits.

Still no support for GSYNC with multiple monitors?

I have 2 simple 60Hz monitors and an Asus (ROG PG35VQ) 200Hz that supports GSYNC (btw it's GSYNC ULTIMATE but for some reason, nvidia-settings shows "unvalidated" and I can only activate "GSYNC COMPATIBLE").

GSYNC is not working while all 3 monitors are enabled but with just the Asus monitor GSYNC is working properly.

I have been looking around online and understand that this has been an issue for some time now and couldn't find any workaround.

Is there still no solution?

Convert MineCraft Texture Packs?

Say, for instance, that I want to use the Faithful 64x texture pack in MineClone 5. How would I go about converting it to be compatible with MineClone?

Wayland gameplay recordings look magnificent

I won't deny the fact that Wayland introduces a slight amount of input latency (at least as of the date of this post on Gnome Wayland.) Not enough to break the deal for most or even be noticable on higher refresh rate monitors, but for 60hz screens it is noticeable enough to at least consider.

I am a high-octane gamer / completitionist- I use a 144hz monitor and Logitech G Pro Wireless and like to consider myself "good" at competitive shooter games such as Insurgency Sandstorn Apex CSGO that type. I also record most of my gameplay, using OBS, just to have a record of it / for the fun of it. This led to me becoming obsessed with finding my ideal recording settings for Linux etc. In the end I use Arch with OBS and the obs-vkcapture Game Capture plugin enabled, works great on both xorg and Wayland.

Perhaps it is ironically due to this input latency, or system-wide "triple buffering" vsync-like compositing that Wayland does, but my gameplay recordings with OBS and Wayland look so unbelievable smooth and come out so reliable in terms of framerate, it often looks indistinguishable from my gameplay. I have tested with different settings and with all sorts of games, and on xorg (with all the variables of tearfree/VariableRefresh configs and/or ingame vsync toggled on and off) they are passable but compared to Wayland look choppy, have more of those laggy moments, and less of the "oh wow it looks like the video is just the game playing on my monitor" effect. When I record a game using Wayland, I know the resulting video will be superb, or at least how I saw it when I played on my screen. xorg "works" great, and supports OBS hotkeys (mediated by Game Capture on Wayland, just use appindicator icon menu) but the video can sometimes look not smooth. And, the Steam app itself has severe hiccups using Wayland that is true, for example if I don't disable animated avatars in the Friends List my whole Steam locks up. But the moment that OBS starting working Wayland using xdg-desktop-portal, and I noticed how amazing my beloved recordings began to look, I switched for good.

So I 100 percent understand the arguments presented against Wayland for gaming, in terms of input latency. I have seen the tests in real time and it is true that tearing-enabled (Tearfree=false) xorg responds to your mouse movements more quickly than Wayland does. Personally, considering how I use a 144hz monitor and don't notice it until it's tested, and how I still do well in online games, the caveat of input latency in Wayland is worth dealing with in exchange for the buttery smooth video response I get in return, at least for my use case of wanting a perfect picture. But if I were at some game competition, I admit I'd probably flip back to xorg for that session.

Best way to use ProtonGE over time?

Hello, I use Arch and ProtonGE for some newer online games, really helps with stutters and sometimes compatibility. I used to just get it off the GitHub page directly but got tired of doing this every few days so now I just use the Protonup-qt AUR package and check there when I do my updates.

What I'm wondering is, considering how often it releases, what is the best or "intended" way of actually using Proton GE? Should you keep several versions, or one at a time? There are sometimes several new versions even in just one day, and for the longest time I assumed the best practice when it's updated would be to delete the previous version of GE, and install the new. But I'm realizing now, that this might be the wrong way to do it. Some games, like I've discovered Dark Souls 2 and Yooka Laylee, don't always carry cloud saves over, and a ProtonGE update in this method would require me to copy over my local saves. So wouldn't this method (removing old GE, installing new one) this be like reinstalling the games that Proton version is using every time it's updated?

For example, let's say I am using GE-Proton7-33 to play a newly supported ONLINE game like Apex or Elden Ring. Both games with online EAC capabilities. Would keeping this older Proton GE version cause issues in the long run? Would these games need new advancements provided with future GE versions, as the game keeps updated?

Basically, should I keep one version of Proton GE for when I need it, or should I have multiple versions of ProtonGE and keep the games I have selected with that version as is, instead of constantly having to go back in and set compatibility to the newer one? Moreover, wouldn't this method (keeping all over time) take up considerable disk space and convolute my prefixes?

There's a new GE version so often, idk how to keep up. I've been considering just ditching GE altogether and sticking with the latest stable or Experimental and let Steam handle it, so I can just set and forget, which doesn't seem to be an applicable mindset when using GE.

Apex Legends stutters exactly every 30 seconds.


Not something to be fixed, because I already fixed itbt patching proton/wine, but I wonder if others also see this.

To prefeace: It has nothing to do with state cache or shader compilation.

On normal proton stable and experimental, Apex Legends stutters exactly every 30 seconds for 1 second. Even in menu or start screen.

Only Apex Legends. I tried some other dxvk d9 games, and no issues.

Different kernel versions, Mesa versions, proton versions, different desktops. Fresh system. Amdgpu rdna2.

I tracked the issue to ntdll working memory set query done by apex (I suspect EAC, is doing this), which can be very inefficient, and take up to 50ms, which causes drop from 150fps to 20fps for a second or two.

The only unusual thing about my system is big amount of memory (255GB), and the fact that I run from overlayfs over tmpfs.

So real question. Is anybody else experiencing similar stutter every 30 seconds?

Ps. Here is the patch to fix this: https://gist.github.com/baryluk/943cfafc8e3dc8d8a9c882e2e42d17fb

Wireless Gamepad with good linux compatibility

Hi all, I have an HTPC that is set up with Moonlight to a gaming PC in another room. I want to grab 4 controllers for the HTPC for when people are over, so I can just use moonlight to play any multiplayer games.

Right now I'm using an Xbox wired controller, and it works fine, but I'd prefer wireless if I'm going to buy more.

Also, I may not buy four of these, but if one has gyro that would be excellent as I use it for shooters.

DualSense Haptic Feedback on Linux

If you own a DualSense and a gaming PC, you probably know that there are some games like Death Stranding Director's Cut, Ghostwire Tokyo, Deathloop, and many others, that feature the cool stuff from the DualSense like haptic feedback and adaptive triggers on PC. However, booting up those games on Linux is quite disappointing, as they don't feature the coolest part: The Haptic Feedback. From my testing, it seems that right now the only thing that is actually missing is the haptic feedback itself, because the adaptive triggers and the controller speaker (the one that plays specific audio like the sound effect of changing a gun or Julianna talking with you via radio on Deathloop) are completely functional already.

I'm trying to dig up information here, because searching on Google for "DualSense Haptic Feedback on Linux" only brings up old posts and no information at all. PCGamingWiki says that "there are patches to Wine adding native support underway", but I couldn't find any font on that end.

Does anyone know anything about this at all? Where can I find such information? I tried looking up at the issues and pull requests on the Wine repo, but also didn't find anything. The haptic feedback effects are so cool, and it would be awesome to be able to use it on Linux. It is just so close from being perfect right now.

New AMD RT MR dropped that doubles the frames for RT on Linux

So, I've been keeping up with the latest MRs concerning RT on AMD on Linux and about 4 hours ago a new MR just dropped that works just as well as this MR. I can't compile with the second one as it probably needs a rebase but the first one literally doubles the frames in Control and Resident Evil 8. Exciting times if both can offer the uplift needed to make RT games playable on AMD on Linux! :)

Deathloop broken on latest mesa git drivers in nobara

Hello all I come to you today for help. I have played deathloop with very few issues in multiple linux distros on older mesa drivers but with nobara and manjaro both upgraded to the latest mesa git the game is very much non functional. Im not sure of any logs that I could send as the game does play it seems to be purely graphical. I tested the game on the latest mesa git drivers with proton version 6.3-8, the latest stable release 7.0-4, proton experimental and proton glorious eggrole. None of the above rendered the game properly aside from 6.3-8 and it crashed within a few minutes of my testing but the graphics did render properly. My Hardware configuration is as follows, my cpu is a Ryzen 7 5700g, my gpu is an rx 6600, I have 16gb ddr4 2x8gb modules running in dual channel mode and clocked at 3200mhz,and im running the game off of a 1tb sata 3 ssd. The linux distro im using as previously stated is the latest release of nobara that being 36. I am running linux kernel 5.19 and the latest mesa git release 22.3.0. I was reaching out to see if anybody had experienced similar issues to me or if anyone could help me find a solution to this problem. Here is a video I made showcasing the games issues and thanks in advance! https://youtu.be/EjNgRbQqQ0k?t=395

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

I'm using Arch Linux with the latest 5.14 kernel. My computer has a Ryzen 5 3400G and I play with the integrated graphics, I'm using the commence source drivers. All games I've played so far have outperformed my expectations, according to benchmarks on YouTube. This may be due to my RAM, which is 16GB clocked at 3400Mhz. Risk of Rain 2 tho, underperforms, severely. It's not unplayable, but it should be doing much better. Benchmarks show 30FPS at 1080p completely maxed out, I get around 5-10. To reach 60, I should be using mid-high settings at 720p it seems, although I seem to be able to get by at 900p, low settings, and it has some dips to low 40s at times. I tried 720p, and it doesn't constantly stay at 60 as it should. It is a posibility that the game just performs worse on Linux, however another system that has a Ryzen 5 5600x and a GTX 750 TI can max out the game and it doens't ever go below 60. Any way I can troubleshoot this?

GTA 5 mods not working

I have ScriptHook + Trainer, Menyoo, and VStancer installed. None of them work. Pressing the ~ key doesnt bring up a menu for vstancer, and pressing F4 for the trainer briefly freezes the game before continuing like the key wasnt pressed. What have I done wrong? I installed the mods just like I was told to. My copy of GTA 5 is from Epic Games (Heroic launcher) if that helps. They definitely are interacting with the game somehow, judging from the F4 freezing the game for a brief second.

Old Linux Side Scrolling Arena Shooter

Hey everyone.

I'm trying to recall an old multiplayer side scrolling shooter game I remember from the mid-90s. One characteristic was being able to play as different characters in each respawn, including a xenomorph. There were different weapons and powerup pickups. Kind of like an early Soldat.

It believe it was included on Red Hat 5.x floppies.

I've done a lot of searching and can't figure it out. Anyone recall off the top of their head?

Dualshock 4 navigation/commands outside of games (Arch/SteamOS)

I'm using Steam deck in desktop mode to run emulators; they seem to perform much better without the Steam overlay making "virtual gamepads" in game mode. PlayStation 3 Dualshock 3 controllers work absolutely beautifully with SteamOS (and I recall them working will with Ubuntu previously); pairing with cable magically confers BT pairing with no extra steps.

PlayStation 4 Dualshock 4 pair fine (though are labeled generically "wireless controller") and seem to work fine but there seems to be some system-level functions that the DS4 is triggering outside of games/applications.

DS4 issue 1: When assigning buttons, I cannot press the DS4 "X" button without it shutting the window I'm using!

DS4 issue 2: After using the emulator and shutting down program/disconnecting gamepads, it appears the DS4 has been busy sending out commands in the background, including copy/paste/search!

I'm afraid this is a cross-post from r/SteamOS, as there wasn't much discussion and I'm not sure if this occurs with pure Arch or other Linux distros. https://www.reddit.com/r/SteamOS/comments/xas5a9/dualshock_4_with_steam_os_steam_deck_desktop/

Can anyone help me with a guide as to what commands the DS4 is sending to the OS, and/or how to stop this happening? Or is this a SteamOS-specific issue?

Thank you.

Fallen Earth Classic


Fallen Earth is back since October 21 already.

Yesterday i made it work on Fedora36 with wine-7.17 and had a toon with lvl 35, when i learned there was a wipe :O .. Everyone lost everything.My Clan, Rangers, was also gone, all was gone, but the game was back up under a new owner, what i was told last night. That made me amazingly happy, because Fallen Earth is an incredible post-apocalyptical scenario in a huge world and really deserves some of our attention, its working great with wine and its unmonetized and free for all !

So how to make it work ..

export WINEPREFIX=~/Games/fallen-earthexport WINEARCH=win32


winetricks ie8

~/Downloads/dxvk-async-1.10.3/setup_dxvk.sh install

wine ~/Downloads/Fallen_Earth_Downloader.exe

That should install it and make it playable.
I also set windows 10 in winecfg.

For some reason, i can not bring vkbasalt to work. Same with Anarchy-Online, wich is also a 23bit game. The documentation for vkbasalt said, its the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable, but meh ..

How do you ppl add vkbasalt to a 32bit app ?

Nevermind, Fallen Earth is worth a view, its total oldschool cyberpunk futuristic mmorpg.

Go, give it a try ^^

I am confused about fsync/futex2/wait_v_futex or whatever. i need help.

In a nutshell. I am trying to figure out how to enable the latest "sync" protocall for linux gaming.

I know there is esync but fsync gets kind of muddy for me because i hear about things like futex2 or futex wait multiple or futex_v_wait or whatever its called and i just dont know what to do.

I use lutris and steam so i just want to know how to enable the latest "sync" protocall for the both of them. Thank you.

Network help with Steam Deck and New World

I posted https://www.reddit.com/r/newworldgame/comments/xb8bv4/new_world_and_steam_deck_connection_support/ to both the new world and steam deck subs but I thought I might try here. I, and some others have are having issues when trying to use Steam Deck to play new world. Beyond what appears to be a shader caching issues some of us are having issues using an wireless AP. However the problem goes away when using a hotspot. Both a phone, and a windows hotspot have resolved the issue. Interestingly the windows hotspot is part of the same network that the steam deck can not connect to the server on. Any advice or things to try on the steam deck? I have exhausted all the options I can try from the router side of things.

Apricate any help.

Some games play so well with Proton that it offends me they don't release a native build

I've got hundreds of hours in Cyberpunk 2077 now, and some other games. Never a single glitch, and I've play a few of my games in windows on the same pc. They play, in proton, so perfectly, that it really bothers me they don't just release it for Linux. I understand that proton itself would give developers a stable platform to shoot for, but sometimes, I just want a win for linux.

[Guide] Running World of Warcraft with DX12/Vulkan on Fedora

It took me a while to find this information, even the wine wiki is out of date. This should work on other distros as well with minor modifications. The fps are comparable to windows.

  1. Make sure you have sufficient memory/swap space
  2. Add the wine repository for wine staging (https://wiki.winehq.org/Fedora) and install wine-staging # dnf config-manager --add-repo [https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/fedora/36/winehq.repo](https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/fedora/36/winehq.repo) # dnf install wine-staging64
  3. Download vkd3d-proton from https://github.com/HansKristian-Work/vkd3d-proton/releases , extract it and execute setup_vkd3d_proton.sh as your wine user

  4. In winecfg change the OS to "Windows 10"

  5. Run WoW with: WINEDEBUG=-all wine _retail_/Wow.exe Make sure you have the API set to DX12. If the performance tank while targeting, disable outline mode.

Windows Steam to Linux Steam

If I change my OS from Windows to Linux, will Steam recognize the games installed and just patch the necessary files, or will I have to redownload and install everything from scratch?

My Windows is in one SSD, Steam games are on another, and Linux would be on a third, just a clarification.

Gamer seeking Android emulator for Genshin Impact on Linux

I'm an avid gamer who's desperately thinking of possibly permanently switching from Windows to Linux, especially since Windows is such a resource hog and is notorious for running so many unnecessary services while gaming and I'm seeking advice.

One of the games I love playing is Genshin Impact, but the problem is the game's kernel-level anti-cheat system which makes it impossible for Wine to run; so I was just wondering if anyone knows of any good Android emulators for Linux that's capable of running Genshin Impact?

Steam Deck Crash/Blackscreen when quitting games

I have had a steam deck for almost two weeks. Its been great except occasionally it has been hard crashing my steam deck when exiting a game and the only fix is to do a force shut down and reboot the system.

Does this happen to anyone else, or know what the issue could be. It's only done it on two games so far and once went to a black screen when visiting the store even though I could still hear the volume and navigate the menu.

High AMD GPU (RX5500XT) temperatures exclusively for UE4 games on wine

When running various games with Wine I noticed that some of them drive my GPU fans crazy. Even when barely anything happens in the game, fans spin so fast and loud I'm unable to think of anything else.

After some time I deduced that this happens only for game on Unreal Engine 4: "Outer Worlds", "Eternal Cylinder", "Jedi Fallen Order".

Lowering various Graphics settings doesn't help at all.

Other games which are gpu intensive (Horizon Zero Dawn, Death Stranding, Elden Ring) run just fine and spin up fans only occasionally when a lot of stuff's going on.

I googled a lot and didn't find anything specific to UE4 on this matter, perhaps someone here knows something? Does this happen only to me? Is this wine-specific? Any setting I could tweak to stop this?

PSA: For those who are having some trouble launching their Ubisoft Games that were bought on Steam because of Uplay/Ubisoft Connect, I may have stumbled upon a fix from my 1-week search. I'm using an Arch-based distro with KDE. ( I'm not sure if it would work on others), but might be worth a shot.

What I did lately was just install the Steam client via Discover on KDE...

What I didn't know back then was that, Steam also installed lib32-amdvlk which is AMD's standalone Vulkan driver...

The problem with that is I'm using an NVIDIA video card.

I was not aware that Steam installed it, until I checked when I saw this post on r/archlinux

After entering

pacman -Qs vulkan

I saw, that lib32-amdvlk was also installed on my system and when I tried to remove it by entering

pacman -Rs lib32-amdvlk

It said that Steam has it as dependency.

So, I uninstalled Steam from Discover, uninstalled lib32-amdvlk using pacman and then downloaded and installed Steam again, but now, using pacman and chose nvidia-utils .

After that, I tried to launch the Ubisoft Game again and then everything worked flawlessly.

It was able to install Uplay and upgrade it to Ubisoft Connect and everything.

What I found odd tho is that I sometimes need to re-login on Ubisoft Connect and when I tried to launch my other Ubisoft game, it installed another Uplay/Ubisoft Connect client.

But, for now, I'm satisfied.

Technically, I wasn't the one who solved this issue, I just wanted to spread the word just in case the OP delete his post/comment.

Hope that it helped someone.

Rocket League Help!


I've started out on my journey to transition all my Windows games over to Linux., & while I expected there to be snags, I'm pretty much stuck on what to do next.

I recently saw Lutris had a community install for Rocket League, so I decided to give it a shot.

Lutris setup a wine prefix & installed Epic Games for me, from which I subsequently downloaded RL.That went pretty smooth, until Epic couldn't launch the game, but looking around, many just use the Heroic launcher instead, so I went with Legendary, given that's what I'm comfortable with.

Legendary works great, & I have full functionality within the game, expect for the performance. While I don't have a FPS counter, I am defiantly under 30, with frame drops & lag spikes. A far cry from the 200-240 I pull on Windows.

Laptop: `Zephyrus G15 2021`
CPU: `R9 5900HS`
GPU: `RTX 3070 Max-Q`
Wine: `wine-staging 7.15-1`
Lutris: `lutris`

Please let me know if I need to post more information, I doubt it's a driver issue, I'm able to play Minecraft with better performance on Linux vs Windows.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Playing older Linux games on new Linux OS

I'm curious:

If you have a Windows Game, that came out when Windows 95 or 98 was available, then it might be very difficult to get it to run on Windows 8 / 10 / 11 (while it might work very well on Linux tbh).

But I'm curious: What about Linux native games? Like if I buy now a game that came out for Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04, how well will it run on Ubuntu 26.04 or 28.04 (in the future).

Of course you might not be able to answer me a question on how good a game is running in the future, but I'm a german and its hard for me to describe what I mean, but maybe you get it:

Old Windows games run poor on new Windows Operating Sytems.

But do old Linux games run also poor on new Linux Systems, or is that only a Windows issue?

09/10/2022 19:00:03 CEST

So, how about a Linux support focused gaming studio?

So, I was thinking what is the problem with minimal native Linux games support is. The main issue is not developing a game for Linux. Nowadays you need only click a button in Unreal or Unity or Godot or any self-respecting engine (ok, Unity is extra) to have a Linux build. The problem is support.

So what about a studio that does exactly that? Takes the Windows code and only implements Linux specific bug fixes and is responsible for Linux tickets for a low price?

They let the main studio do their own thing and they just focus on bugs for Linux. That reduces the amount of work by A LOT and also allows for a good fee fort he work.

Am I crazy or should something like that exist?

Screen freezes/soft hangs and GPU resets with AMD GPUs and Kernel 5.19 - [gfxhub0] no-retry page fault issue: Solved!

Long story short, a driver oopsie managed to sneak into linux-5.19 since rc6 due to what's presumably an incomplete last minute revert. You may notice GPU hangs with soft driver resets and your screen freezing/turning black out of seemingly nowhere.

To diagnose, after the issue occured, switch to a text console (Ctrl+Alt+F3,F4,F5.,.. - this should still work), log in as root and run

dmesg -t | grep amdgpu

or reboot the machine and check the previous journal

journalctl -k -b -1

for amdgpu related errors like these:

amdgpu 0000:0a:00.0: amdgpu: [gfxhub0] no-retry page fault (src_id:0 ring:40 vmid:7 pasid:32781, for process firefox pid 387524 thread firefox:cs0 pid 387644)

amdgpu 0000:0a:00.0: amdgpu:     RW: 0x1

(...) repeats a few times, then:

[drm:amdgpu_dm_atomic_commit_tail [amdgpu]] *ERROR* Waiting for fences timed out!
[drm:amdgpu_job_timedout [amdgpu]] *ERROR* ring gfx timeout, but soft recovered

If you're seing a similar log output, the solution is to temporarily change to another kernel version, i.e.: 5.15.X LTS, 5.18.Y or 6.0-rcZ, as the issue only affects 5.19 (at the time of writing this, up to and including 5.19.8).

If you're running a kernel with custom patches anyways, you can also apply the following commits from the drm-next repo to a local source tree. The patches may require you to also "make oldconfig" or "make olddefconfig" before compiling due to the new DRM_BUDDY symbol:

For convenience, you can also get the all patches combined into one file from pastebin: kernel-5.19-no-retry-pagefault-fix

I hope this helps, Cheers!

Is it normal for performance to be significantly worse than Windows in some games?

I have an old hp computer with an i5-4590 that Ive been playing around with.

I installed arch, and everything worked fine, but the gaming performance was AWFUL. Portal 2 was laggy and had fucked up textures/lighting, and a pretty simple board game (root) was running at less than 30 fps.

I figured maybe it was just an Arch issue (even though I game on arch at home with zero issues), but after trying Mint I had the exact same issue. I dual booted Windows, and both games ran flawlessly.

This is the first time Ive had an issue with gaming like this. Is it normal for performance to be way worse on older hardware? Do integrated Intel graphics need special drivers or something?

MCC anticheat support on Linux coming soon??

Just thought I would make a post because I have just noticed that MCC now works on Arch Linux with extremely limited anticheat support.

I was able to get into co-op campaign in Halo Reach, CE and 4 though the rest still do not work. I was also able to access the season passes and buy things with my season points. The game also let me play casual slayer in Halo Reach, though none of the other games or game modes worked in multiplayer.

So pretty much, for whatever reason easy anticheat in mcc is letting me play very limited online content now so I think full support may be coming to Linux soon.

Horizon Linux Progress Update 9/9/22

A progress update following the original post here.

OpenGL 4.3 Support

Since my last post, I recalled the fact that Yuzu hadn't always required full OpenGL 4.6. This is useful because I've been virtualizing Horizon Linux on my MacBook under VMware Fusion, and VMware's SVGA driver recently got to OpenGL 4.3. So after backporting Yuzu's old GPU emulation to (optionally) compile into Mizu, I can now run games under Horizon Linux on my Mac with some degree of GPU acceleration. Check it out:

Puyo Puyo Tetris

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

Unlike last time, some games are actually playable!

Now there are some important caveats:

  1. The SVGA driver that is currently publicly available has a bug which breaks things. What I'm running in the screen capture is a version that has not been upstreamed into Mesa yet, but I'm told it will be soon (thanks to the hard work of the VMware graphics team!).

  2. SVGA is a *paravirtualized* GPU driver. This comes with inherent limitations; virtual machines are never really able to use the full power of your GPU in such a setup. As of now, macOS does not enable GPU passthrough to virtual machines, which would be the only way to really harness the entirety of the GPU. Oh well. Still, you can see it's vastly superior to software rendering.

  3. The OpenGL 4.3 version of yuzu was not as good. It did not support as many games (yuzu compatibility looked like this), and ran much slower (at least, from what I observe when I compare to modern yuzu under software rendering). So I'm not yet sure how more intensive games will perform.

I'm very hopeful for Asahi Linux's GPU driver thoughwhenever this pulls through, hopefully we can avoid dealing with virtualization altogether!

Services / System Calls / Scheduler

I've implemented a few more Mizu services and Horizon Linux system calls, and most tediously, a (rough) approximation of how the actual Horizon scheduler worksthanks to Mesosphere's u/SciresM for talking me through some of the concepts! All of this enables some more games to run under Horizon Linux. These include Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (shown above), along the first non-2D games. Unfortunately, these expose another SVGA driver bug which prevents them from running with graphics acceleration, but I am aware that this bug is being actively worked on. For now, here they are running unbearably slow through software rendering:

Yono and the Celestial Elephants

Super Mario Odyssey

I have actually tried running SMO on the Jetson Nano, but to my disappointment, it runs very slowly. I didn't take into account the significant overhead of GPU emulationthe pertinent Mizu threads totally dominate the CPU and use a lot of memory, causing kswapd to kick in and gobble up even more CPU. Unless there's some obvious optimization I'm missing, the Nano's hardware appears to be simply insufficient to run Yuzu's GPU emulation.

One way to potentially avoid this for L4T (Linux 4 Tegra) devices, including the Jetson Nano, would be to forgo GPU emulation completely and have the NVDRV Mizu service communicate with Linux's Tegra driver directly. I haven't researched this idea enough yet though, and so I don't have a good idea of how much engineering effort this would take. My motivation is a bit stronger given that L4T can run on the actual Switch, so we'll see.


I whipped together a kernel module for tracing Horizon system calls and scheduler activity, as well as overriding the behavior of system calls. This is mostly just useful to publicize in case anyone else is interested in contributing. Here's the repo for that:

Wasteland 2 DC via Heroic Launcher on steam deck - save games?

So I installed the GOG version of Wasteland 2 Director's Cut on my steam deck using the Heroic launcher. All good - the game runs and plays fine. I'd like to import my save games from my pc so I can continue my playthrough but I can't seem to find where the game is storing it's save files in this setup. Even though it installed the linux version I can't find the saves in the usual location (~/.config /Wasteland2DC/) nor in the the WinePrefix advertised by Heroic (/home/deck/Games/Heroic/Prefixes/Wasteland 2 Director's Cut). The game does save somewhere as I have made new saves, restarted a bunch of times (the game and the device itself) and I can successfully see the saves and load them. I also tried searching for them in the command line to no avail. There seems to be something going on behind the scenes which I'm not accounting for because this whole setup is very new to me so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Performance issues on different games

Hello everyone, I'm having some issues and i was hoping maybe someone here can help me out?
I really want to switch over to Linux but the strange performance issues are holding me back.
Some games run really well, and Valheim runs even better on Linux than it does on windows.
The issue I'm having is that the reported frame rate does not look or feel right.
Let's take Prodeus as an example, its running at 240fps. Seems pretty good right? But when I'm playing the game it feels and looks more like I'm playing at 60-80fps and also it feels like i have a very slight input lag (or maybe I'm just not used to low fps anymore).
While 60 fps might be fine for some, its a significant downgrade for me coming from windows and it's holding me back to fully switch over to Linux.
Other games I've tested that had the same types of issues were: Titanfall 2 and Satisfactory.
Titanfall 2 also has noticeable stutters.
I haven't tested other games yet but I doubt these 3 I've tested are the only ones having these issues.

Kubuntu 22.04LTS
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU
32Gb RAM
Asus ROG Strix x570 Gaming-E Motherboard

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hollow Knight without V-sync is unplayable on Wayland

Hi, r/linux_gaming.

I have a weird problem with Hollow Knight where the game will look like it is running at 10 fps while actually running at above 150 fps. V-sync completely fixes this, but on my 60Hz laptop the input lag is very distracting. Forcing a 60 fps cap in game's config files or with libstrangle alleviates the problem for a short while, but it comes back after 5-10 minutes of gameplay.

Forcing the game to run on OpenGL with -force-opengl also kind of solves it, but it comes back when my framerate drops below 150 (it usually runs at 180-200).

This is not a problem on Windows or on X11 and I have not seen a similar problem on any other game on this or any other computer.

Mods On GTA V with Linux?

Hello ,

You already know me from this post right here : https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/x89vnl/asking_about_something/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share

By the way for an update , I already bought Grand Theft Auto V (not IV) and Final Hours Of Tomb Raider on Steam. I been searching a lot of distros and I finally choose Fedora 36 KDE (Spins Edition). I will finally go to the Linux ecosystem after I finish my tuition on Saturday (GMT+8).

I got these questions stuck on my head :

  1. Can I put a mods on GTA V with Linux?
  2. Is the method same as the windows route?


If you ask me for a detail specs of my PC , I would be happy to reply and I will not put it unless it's important. (:

All EAC games ignore controller inputs

I have a ps4, ps5, steam controller, and xbox knockoff controller. All of them are ignored when playing in a game that uses EAC

Elden Ring and Back 4 Blood are the only two games i own with this

Keyboard and mouse work. Steam controller will work if i assign the desktop controls to the keys but i can't assign actual controller buttons to that one

Has anyone figured out how to get the steam inputs working? Is there a 3rd party tool i'm supposed to be using? My google fu is failing me and i can't even find anyone who tried outside of steam deck users and apparently that controller is supported but not the steam controller

Warframe Massive Shader Stutter with proton

Hi all, I have warframe installed on my steamdeck and it runs PERFECTLY, no stutter at all.

On my desktop which has much better specs, I also installed Warframe, and it is stuttering like crazy with shader compilation. Is there any way I can troubleshoot why the preload shader compilation isn't happening? I also don't see the window pop up for this when I open the game so I think it's being skipped for some reason.

Bottles: trying to install a game but nothing seems to happen / work giving it .exe?

I created a Bottle as instructed. It loaded stuff then long time and bottle was "created". I didn't even give it a games name nevermind an executable. Huh? Very confusing.

I then went to this bottle and there is "Run Executable". OK, got it! Browsing the executable (setup.exe) from mounted .ISO image. This is an older Harry Potter game and has worked always via this image.

I located the .exe and chose it. Guess what? Nothing happens! Now what? All i have is this "bottle" saying "Run Executable" and i see the chosen .exe on the tab list next to this button.

I was told this is the easiest way to play Windows games, even easier than Lutris. Doesn't seem so. Why is Bottles so confusing? What exactly am i supposed to do even?

I've encountered something rather interesting when I tried installing Ubisoft Connect on Lutris.

So, I'm using an Arch-based distro with KDE as my WM

First, I've installed Steam, wine and lutris via the AUR.

After logging in to my Steam account, I've downloaded and installed AC3 Remastered just to try it out.

Weirdly enough, I keep on getting an error like "Uplay Install is missing" or something similar when launching it via Steam+Proton.

Out of frustration, I've decided to just use Lutris to launch the game.

So, I launched Lutris and then downloaded and installed Ubisoft Connect and logged in after that.

But, for some reason, the game was still not launching even if the game is installed on my Steam Library and I've hooked up my Steam Library to Lutris.

Not knowing what to do and out of desperation, I right clicked the game title inside Ubisoft Connect that is inside Lutris and tried to experiment.

After right-clicking, I clicked on Browse files and it led me to:

/home/heathenhacks/Games/ubisoft-connect/dosdevices/c:/Program Files (x86)/Ubisoft/Ubisoft Game Launcher/

Apparently, that's where the Ubisoft Connect Launcher resides.

After seeing that, thinking it's the Uplay launcher, I double-clicked on upc.exe and it installed another Steam client and another Ubisoft Connect program.

Out of curiosity, I've decided to go along with it.

Uninstalled AC3 Remastered from my Steam Library and then uninstalled the Steam client from the AUR.

While on Ubisoft Connect (the one installed by double-clicking upc.exe), I clicked on Games and it showed me my Ubisoft Games, so, driven by curiosity yet again, I clicked on AC3 Remastered and clicked Download, then Install.

For some odd reason, it pulled up the recently installed Steam client (the one that's not from the AUR) and then downloaded and installed the game using that.

After installation, while still inside the new Ubisoft Connect, I clicked on Play and it launched the game properly. I was even able to continue my saved game from Windows.

Using the newly installed Steam client to launch the game worked perfectly as well.

I'm really confused.

Was that a known workaround? Or was what I was experiencing a bug?

Thanks in advance!

How to get SDDM to work on docked laptop with external screen on boot

I use KDE with a docked laptop and an external monitor connected to my NVIDIA 2060 graphics card with USBC. I have encountered a problem where SDDM doesn't work on my external monitor forcing me to open the laptop to login and only does it project fine after that.

Is there a script that I can add to SDDM to allow it to load on boot and project to external screen when laptop lid is closed and its docked or to laptop screen when its not connected to external monitor?

I have found a script that allows me to do this for LightDM but it would be more convenient if I could somehow use a similar script for SDDM on KDE (or even GDM)

I would greatly appreciate someone helping me write a script for this as I'm not a programmer and have no idea how to do it myself.

Is there an updated ranking for graphics cards in terms of QOL somewhere?

I've been looking for a while, and all I find are buying guides and lists that just mention the performance and price. Sure, those are valid concerns, but it's not what I'm looking for.

I want to see some sort of ranking based on how easy it is to set up in linux, mentions pains and problems with needed workarounds for drivers, limitations, performance hits compared to windows or for specific applications, etc. With special considerations too, like how with amd for specific stuff you may need proprietary drivers or stuff like that.

I know nowadays you can enjoy linux with most cards, it's just that some are more hassle free than others.

If such a ranking doesn't exist, at least I would like to find all of that info in one place. Know of a resource? I'm still enjoying my 5700xt, but because of economy stuff where I live, it might be worthwhile starting to consider an upgrade for the upcoming years.

Does anyone know how to control lighting and fans on an All-AMD Alienware laptop?

I'm getting an M17 R5 all-AMD laptop in the mail, and I want to try running HoloISO on it. I could set my lighting and fan curves in Windows, but I don't know if they'll actually stick when I'm not using Windows. I don't know if I want to dual boot or go all-in on Linux. But I have four questions really:

1) Can I run AWCC (Alienware Command Center) under Wine 7? 2) If not, are there any alternatives that work for setting fan curves on the laptop? 3) If not, can I run Windows in a VM and do what I need to do with AWCC? 4) If I have to use a dual boot or VM kind of setup to have any control over the fans, will my fan curves remain when I'm not using Windows? Like when I close the VM, or reboot the machine and hop into Linux if I'm dual booting?

How to enable DLDSR or DSR for an nvidia graphics card on linux?

I am trying to enable dynamic super resolution setting, which can be found in the windows nvidia control panel settings, but I am disappointed to not find any setting in the linux x server settings menu. This feature was released in January. Why is it not in the linux proprietary driver settings?

I am on 515.65.01 nvidia driver.

And where are the rest of the settings in the windows driver anyway? How do I even enable features?

Some have tried running the windows nvidia control panel in wine to enable settings however I am not sure if this will be able to change anything.

How can I use this feature? Is it even supported on linux?

Issues with gamescope and specific keyboard


I have a very specific issue for which I'd love to get tips or even the confirmation that anyone else has this issue.

I have the System76 launch keyboard (https://system76.com/accessories/launch) and for some reason I cannot use gamescope with it. It just seems to not recognize it as a valid keyboard: gamescope: ../gamescope/src/wlserver.cpp:801: void wlserver_key(uint32_t, bool, uint32_t): Assertion `wlserver.wlr.virtual_keyboard_device != nullptr' failed.

Gamescope does start (most of the time) when I have another keyboard plugged in.

I have described my issue in more detail on the gamescope bugtracker: https://github.com/Plagman/gamescope/issues/608

I'm using archlinux and gamescope version 3.11.43-1. I do have an nvidia graphics card but that doesn't seem to be the problem anymore.

Thank you!

wineclick: barebones win32 API click event listener for Wine applications (reliably send click events into Wine from host Linux system)

wineclick provides a barebones event listener for sending simulated win32 API mouse input into Wine applications from a host Linux system.

An issue I had over the years when writing input automation scripts to be used in Wine was that virtual input from programs like xdotool on the host system did not reliably break the Wine barrier and send click events into Windows applications, which expect raw input or input through the win32 API.

I wanted something totally no-frills that would provide a drop-in "bootleg IPC" solution, letting me just issue these click events from within a shell vernacular and not have to think about creation or teardown of named pipes, sockets, etc.

Simply launch the executable in the same Wine prefix as the target app, then echo commands into a plaintext file that sits adjacent to wineclick.

The listener responds to these commands:

  • left: click left mouse button
  • right: click right mouse button
  • middle: click middle mouse button

As well as suffixes on those commands: _up and _down (e.g. left_down). This is used to simulate click-and-drag actions where a sustained hold is needed.

This hopefully makes it more painless to create macros for productivity applications, autoclick scripts for tedious wood chopping/crafting minigames, or RSI solutions to reduce unwanted repetitive gestures.

You can use your existing shell scripts and xdotool for cursor movements, then echo out click events to wineclick as needed from within the same script.

Further explanation can be found in the README. Hope this helps.

Chiaki Remote Play Security Concerns?

So I recently started looking into Chiaki for playing PS4 remotely on my Steam Deck and while it seems like a great program, I am somewhat concerned about the process required for obtaining the PSN ID:


Requiring you to put your account details into a URL the script generates sets off alarm bells for me. I set up a burner account to give it a go and it works pretty well after setting it up, but I can't seem to switch accounts when connected to the burner and I would still want to make progress on games and trophies using my main account. However, I don't feel comfortable putting my details in there.

Basically, is it known whether there is a less sketchy feeling way to obtain the ID required or if there is a way to verify how safe the process given is? Am I just being overly paranoid? Whether the answer is something that assuages my doubts or confirms them, thank you in advance for any replies!

How is wayland for games? Is it at a stage where you can just forget and play your games?

To clarify, I play a few games on Steam via proton, some linux native games, and some old games running on Lutris.

Keep in mind we're already pushing at the boundaries of my technical abilities to get the above games running.

To that end, I'm wondering if with an AMD gpu, can just launch games.

I've been itching to distro hop a bit, but the fear of wayland is preventing me from doing so. Any thoughts?

Stuttering in games and normal windows moving upon upgrading CPU

Hey guys, I upgraded my CPU from a Ryzen 7 5700G to a Ryzen 9 5900X and now I'm getting stuttering when moving windows in desktop. Surprisingly, when having something like a 4K video playing in the background mitigates this stuttering a bit.

In games tho, something like CSGO, I should supposedly be getting 300+ fps minimum (I would think), but a lot of times I get less than 230fps and occasional stutters that are pretty damn annoying because it's usually when an enemy shows up or if I turn around quickly and then get killed.

I've tried setting up reinstalling microcode_ctl, I've put the cpu frequency governor to performance, I've put the minimum CPU frequency to 3.7GHz (was previously 2.2GHz). All to no avail.

Has anyone faced this issue before and/or have any tips to fix this? I'm just trying whatever is possible right now before reinstalling the entire OS.

Btw here's some info on my setup:

Payday 2 Proton: Constant freezing yet only when moving mouse, and in Multiplayer?

Got to be one of the weirdest bugs I've seen in a while. Running Payday 2 under Proton, everything is perfect. In fact it feels smoother than Windows perhaps.

But the instant I join a multiplayer game, even just sitting in the pre-game lobby in the menu, the game starts getting incredible stutters: Upwards of a full second, every time the mouse moves. This persists into gameplay and makes it entirely unplayable. If I walk around without touching the mouse it's perfectly fine again.

I see that the game has a Platinum rating on ProtonDB, has anyone else encountered this, and does anyone have an idea for a fix?

09/08/2022 00:22:08 CEST

Proton experimental updated, Mesa 22 and Nvidia 510.47 or newer required. New playable games (Deathsmiles II, Primal Carnage: Extinction) and fixes for RDR2

Doom Eternal suddenly not working today?

I am wondering if this is just a me thing. Doom Eternal loaded perfectly last night. Today it crashes after the Bethesda logo. Doom (2016) still works without issue.

I tried a computer reboot. Tried different versions of Proton. Verified the game files.

Did an update bork it?

I am using Pop_OS, and Steam.

Posting this here for people like me who are having some trouble launching Ubisoft Games on Steam because of Uplay. Specifically, AC3 Remastered that was bundled with AC Odyssey's Gold/Ultimate Edition. [Not sure if this would work with other Ubisoft games or if using the correct flair, tho.]

After finding out a guide on AC3 Remastered's Proton DB page, I followed it, but failed many times and have surrendered in defeat 3 times... I think it was missing some steps, so, I'm posting this here.

Here's what I did.

First, I've downloaded and installed AC Odyssey and since AC3 Remastered is bundled with it, it was downloaded and installed as well.

However, when trying to launch the game, Steam would show a notification saying that "UPlay is not installed" or something similar to that, which is really weird, because it should've installed everything that's needed to play the game.

So, as per the guide I found, I've also installed Protontricks .

I installed it via AUR, because I'm using KDE on an Arch-based distro.

I've also installed the git version, as a fellow Arch-user suggested on r/SteamPlay

So, after installing Protontricks, I ran it and chose AC Odyssey just to check if it would work, but, it didn't. It's saying that I'm using a 64-bit WINEPREFIX.

To circumvent that, I deleted the .wine folder inside the home directory, and then entered this to the terminal:

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=path_to_wineprefix winecfg 

As what winehq.org/FAQ suggested

Also, I had to delete the contents inside the Steam Proton's created folder called pfx and replaced it with the 32bit version by changing "path_to_wineprefix" with the path of the pfx folder

Mine goes like this:


In addition, to find where your pfx folder is located, you can try entering

protontricks --gui

to the terminal. (at least, that's what I did.)

So, after selecting your game, you would see the typical Wine window. It looks like this.

Choose Install an application and then look for "Uplay".

After installation and if everything was successful, it would then update Uplay to Ubisoft Connect.

Disclaimer: These are just some of the steps I did that worked for me, I'm not sure if this would work on every system.

Steam: ONE PUNCH MAN: A HERO NOBODY KNOWS - now working...

Hi Linux Gamers,

A small patch so as to play it on Linux

You only need to download the below zip file :


unzip it to:

/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/ONE PUNCH MAN A HERO NOBODY KNOWS/EasyAntiCheat/

(you can easily find the folder from steam - browse local files)

overwrite the files and then launch one punch man and enjoy the game.

(I have tested it on Proton-GE and proton Experimental

ps: The game plays fine , I have test it online as well but as you know this is not an official patch so dont blame me if something happens...

New to linux...

With an AMD gpu! (6700XT) First time I've owned an AMD gpu in well over a decade. What do I need to know about being an AMD gpu user on linux? Any common issues with certain games with amd or anything? I know the drivers are baked into the kernel, but is there anything I need to download/install extra for gaming? Is there any useful tools for amd gpus (think i remember hearing about corectrl?). Is there anything else i may need to know using amd vs using nvidia?

I was affected by arch grub issue making endeavor unbootable, so I decided to wipe it and try out Opensuse, so its a fresh install. Figured since I was switching from nvidia to amd anyway, and feel like a fresh install also would be better for that.

"Best" General Wine Version for Lutris/ HGL

Asking About Something......

Gettings ,

I've used both Windows and Linux. I can't decide whether I should be on Linux or Windows? I am still (currently) on Windows 11. For privacy reasons , I decide to pass my PC into the Linux world after I buy several games from Steam on my Windows 11 Machine. I'm going to buy these games :

  1. Tomb Raider (2013)
  2. Grand Theft Auto IV (2008-2007)

But I had my "Shadow Of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition" on Epic Games Store with my account on it. My question is :

I. Do those 2 games (on Steam) support Linux?

II. Is the Epic Games Store available for Linux?

III. Which Distros I am going to use for my long-term as a PC gamer.

IV. Is Playstation 5/4 controller works on Linux?

**Notes* Forgive me for my bad English. I am still learning about English.

[Idea] Minimal standalone (dual-bootable) linux distribution, made specifically to only run games under wine (like wine virtual desktop)

Why not making a minimal standalone Arch distro (dual-bootable), bundled with everything needed to run a wine virtual desktop made specifically to play LoL? By wrapping all the needed system/wine libraries, constraining unneeded software, making UI utilities for firewall management, driver/packages installation, even players who do not have any linux knowledge would then benefits from linux performances when playing LoL, or any targeted game. Having, hazarding to say, a lag-free game experience.

If you'll like to take this idea further, feel free to notify me about an eventual development stage, i'd really like to get involved in case you'd need my collaboration :)

About FSR, proton GE and gamescope

Hi guys, so recently I heard about gamescope and did some research on using it. I have a Nvidia card (1660) and be able to setup gamescope for a few games. So far so good. After that I read more and try to use FSR inside proton GE (steam) and wine-ge (heroic).

This is what I've been thinking and some confusion between places, hopefully you guys can correct me if I get it wrong.

  • We have a bunch of games thats support FSR, here: link, If I use proton-ge to play them, it can use FSR as ease, I do see the effect of those FSR to my card (lower gpu usage, good display output). So far so good with my test on "No man's sky"
  • Some of the youtube video as well as news telling me that any games using proton ge (or wine with fshack new version) can use FSR, but I can not seem to see significant effect. Eggroll does kind of mentioned:

    By default, the "balanced" resolution option for FSR is added to the resolution list if a mode is not specified.

    So if the game doesn't have an "option" to choose "balanced" or "ultra", its mean we can not use FSR? My test was "Witcher 3" and its doesn't seem to look better. But ofc, its just my eyes telling.

  • Gamescope, this is weird case, even though I got crashed a lot on different games, but with gamescope I actually can use both FSR and NIS (using hotkeys toggle), within a few games, including witcher 3. Its seem to me that inside gamescope, FSR does work!

With that , my question is: does FSR work for all (majority of games not in AMD's list) inside wine (GE) without gamescope? Is this noted somewhere that I missed it?

Thanks bunch!

Getting a for Windows compiled Electron app to run on Linux - DiscordBotStudio

I am trying to run Discord Bot Studio which I bought on steam, on Linux.

Please tell me what logs I can provide or maybe even disassemble that asar file since I heard you could do that. Thanks!

Any updates or your experience with Forza Horizon 5? Did buy it, could run it, but it freezes after some minutes.

Tried it, used Proton Experimental and although it ran fine, it crashes after 5 to 10 minutes (didn't time it).


  • Ryzen 3900
  • 32G, NVidia RTX 3060 Ti
  • current Fedora
  • proprietary nvidia-drm drivers

Tried some options (vsync on/off, fullscreen on/off, wayland/x11, frame rate limit, lower graphics settings, different solutions 1440/1080) and sometimes I could run it longer (e.g. with 1080), but in the end it always froze. The built-in performance check just gave me ~25 FPS, but when I actually ran it (before it crashed) I got actually stable ~75 FPS and ran extremely well ... but then there triggers a bug somewhere and it freezes.

It didn't help, that I had to go to the initial intro sequence 10 times, which takes some minutes, so I capitulated and refunded it (because Steam tells me I already had 90 minutes, but I was mostly debugging and having to play the fucking intro over and over).

On protondb it has Silver status, but for me it's unplayable obviously.

For what it's worth, I successfully ran Cyberpunk, Elden Ring and Metro Exodus on this machine.

What are your experiences with Forza?

Chefs Kiss to the Folks that made Bottles.

I have had a journey. Long story short the Steam Deck got me into Linux gaming. I jumped into the deep end and installed Kubuntu on a spare laptop laying around. Runs like a dream now, very cool.

Main point; I wanted to play Fallout 3 with mods and was very frustrated with a number of noob road blocks that prevented me from using everyone elses methods. So I made my own.

This is by no means a tutorial. Not yet anyway, I will have to refine that. But I downloaded Bottles the windows compatibility thing for Linux to use my tried and true favorite mod manager; FOMM, Fallout Mod Manager.

I have relied on this .exe like a bed spring for my modding experience, years and years Ive been using this program.

In order to use FOMM I went through a days worth of headache getting .NET 2.0 installed for it. Bless Linux gaming gods though, .net successfully installed in the Bottle I made.

Thank you Bottles. I can mod Fallout again. Time to tinker to New Vegas!

Steam kinda uninstalled itself and sound stuff is no longer being recognized

Hello. neofetch attached as text in bottom I turned on my computer and noticed Steam on my taskbar was a file with a question mark. I checked Lutris and the files and all my games are stlll there. I tried to launch a game through Lutris and a thing came up saying steam wasn't installed. I then tried to install it with the .deb from steams website (apparently this was a bad idea, sorry) and an error showed up saying "You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: libGL.so.1" I looked it up and a lot of the results are saying something about nvidia drivers, even though I am on AMD. I did have a GTX 1080 installed previously, but I haven't had any issues with anything since I installed my 6600, and Minecraft does appear to have normal performance when I tested it just now.

I also noticed that sound devices aren't registering, and I don't know if that is related or not.

Things to note:

I installed RDR2 while I was asleep last night (about 24 hours ago ish)

I did restart my computer, but that didn't seem to help either problem

I might take a while to respond since I am going to bed soon, but I will try to answer any questions

how to combine two commands when launching a game?

in order to measure a game's fps without using steam, i use gallium hud and i do like
GALLIUM_HUD="simple,fps" /mnt/hgfs/Darkest.Dungeon/nstart.sh

this works perfectly, however now libstrangle also requires me to do
strangle -vsync 0 /mnt/hgfs/Darkest.Dungeon/nstart.sh
in order to launch the game with its modifications like vsync off, so how do i combine both gallium hud and strangle now? i'm new to linux, surely the mighty linux has a way to combine two commands into one?

obs-vkcapture (Game Capture) on Arch/AUR

I use the obs-vkcapture plugin which is essentially the Game Capture option available on Windows ported over to Linux. It is prepatched into GloriousEggroll's Nobara distro and also available distro-wide on Flatpak. It is a much more efficient capture method than Window Capture and makes it to where I don't have to alt-tab to record every single game, it captures any fullscreen app.

Based on the Arch instructions in upstream's GitHub, use this AUR package, but it appears to be very outdated. In the comments is another user who very recently said they've made a new package. I'm having trouble determining if it's a good idea to use this new one or what to do in this situation, I'd hate to mess up my working OBS setup..

If you use this Game Capture plugin on Linux, how did you acquire it? Is it easy to build one's self? Could someone maybe hit the developer up on GitHub to inform him the AUR link is outdated?

Where will compatibility be in five years?

Ive recently been running a linux distro (the one everyone gets btw) experimenting on my old drive since I was upgrading to a 2TB SSD, and thought that though Ill likely install and return to windows 10 on it to play some titles such as Cry of Fear and Rainbow Six Siege, Im looking forward for the day when I wont have to do that to play those titles. If that day comes, how far ahead would it be? Five years? A decade? Where will compatibility be in five years?

No sound on Steam games

I've downloaded TF2 And noticed it had no sound. How do I solve this?

HOWTO: Run Far Cry 5 (Steam) using the FC5Resistance mod and DARK v2 or any other ReShade preset

HOWTO: Run Far Cry 5 (Steam version) using the FC5Resistance mod and a ReShade preset (in this case, DARK v2). This is written from memory, some details might be inaccurate. The unmodded game runs fine out of the box using regular Steam Proton 7.0-4, so this is also the version I use for this modded installation.

  1. Install Far Cry 5 normally via Steam

  2. Run the game once using default Proton (e.g. 7.0-4), configure in-game options how you want, maybe play the intro, then exit the game. NOTE: You can close the "graphics driver unsupported" popup using Shift+F2 to open the UPlay overlay (might take a few seconds to open).

  3. Download FC5Resistance mod

  4. NOTE: You can viruscheck the file(s) if paranoid. It's also on nexusmods.com but I think it's an older version there which might not run anymore.

  5. Unzip it and move the directory FC5Resistance into the folder where FarCry5.exe is located

  6. Install ReShade into the game's wine prefix using reshade-linux.sh (run reshade-linux.sh and follow the prompts. The game is based on DirectX 11, so select that when asked)

  7. NOTE: I tried using steamtinkerlaunch for this before, but couldn't get ReShade installed using that for some reason. The script above worked well for me.

  8. Download a ReShade preset of your choice (e.g. DARK v2. Copy the .ini file into the game directory where ReShade.ini is located as well

  9. Change the Steam launch options for FC5 to: WINEDLLOVERRIDES="d3dcompiler_47=n;dxgi=n,b" xterm -bg black -fg white && echo %command% >/dev/null

  10. Run the game in Steam, which now opens an xterm window which runs within the Steam container context

  11. Create a launcher script launch.sh inside the FC5Resistance directory (where FC5ModInstaller.exe is located), make it executable (chmod +x), with contents (adjust paths): ```

    Regular use

    ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Proton\ 7.0/proton run FC5ModInstaller.exe

For use with ReShade preset: DARK v2.ini

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="d3dcompiler_47=n;dxgi=n,b" ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Proton\ 7.0/proton run FC5ModInstaller.exe ```

  1. Change the Steam launch options for the game to: WINEDLLOVERRIDES="d3dcompiler_47=n;dxgi=n,b" xterm -bg black -fg white -e "cd FC5Resistance; ./launch.sh" && echo %command% >/dev/null
  2. When running FC5 from within Steam, launcher script will now run, which will in turn run the FC5 Mod Installer.
  3. NOTE: If FC5ModInstaller doesn't run (nothing visible happens) with the error in the logfile "Failure to create directory /home/you/.cache/dotnet_bundle_extract", use this workaround: Create the RELATIVE directory structure where the program expects it, e.g. from within the FC5Resistance directory do: mkdir -p home/you/.cache/dotnet_bundle_extract # no / before home

  4. Mod installer should now run (GUI might flicker, but it's usable). Add/install the mods you want to the game (some of FC5 Resistance mod is pre-selected, but not everything it seems. Just add what you want)

  5. From now on, FC5 in Steam will always run your script, which runs mod installer, and from there you run the game using hotkey F

  6. From within FC5, press Home key to configure ReShade (select your ReShade preset .ini, maybe configure it further)

  7. Enjoy a modded FC5

Has gamining got any better for non steam users ?

I have been a Windows user since Win95 and only tried out Linux last year, started with EndeavourOS but was able to install Arch Linux myself (with help from YT guides) Arhc+KDE-Wayland+pipewire.

It worked well, better than Windows and honestly I wish I could have abandoned Windows due to how horrible the OS has gotten since Windows 7. The data collection, preinstalled crap, forced outlook account and other things just make me hate Windows.

Gaming on Linux however was hit or miss...sadly mostly miss. I play MMO games and games from GOG, I do not use steam and never will, so Lutris was the obvious choice. For an example I will use The Witcher Enhanced Edition from GOG, Lutris installed the game correctly as far as I knew and ran...but no sound.
According to the Lutris website this game should have no issues, it wasn't until I asked on the EndeavourOS forums that someone mentioned Lutris/Wine didn't install a certain DLL. After installing it the game worked perfectly but some games were not so easy to fix.

I know a lot of Linux users say they have had no issues with many games so maybe I am doing something wrong but with over 140+ games on GOG I don't want to spend 20+ mins fixing every single one. (Every game gets a seperate prefix)

I don't know if Lutris checks the install to make sure everything is installed,but it doesn't seem to work half the time. For me a lot of the problems were due to a lack of extra components like .NET framworks or C++ Redistriburtable leaving me with no idea what ones needed to be installed.

I really hope Linux improves since Microsoft is really ruining Windows, but gamining seems to be all over the place. Yes Linux is community driven which is great, but doesn't make it easy to find solutions due to different distros or the fact the issue may only effect a hand full of people.

So have things improved since 2021 ? I know steam+Proton are big wins for Linux, but as someone who doesn't use steam I hope it doesn't take over the entire gamining community here.
Would be amazing if Linux could be as easy as Windows when it comes to games, just install and play..but I don't see that happening for a long time.

Issues updating Cyberpunk to 1.6 in Lutris.

Hi everyone! Cyberpunk 1.6 just came out and I'm trying to install the update via Lutris, however for some reason it gives me this message:

Start monitoring process.

fsync: up and running.

Wine cannot find the FreeType font library. To enable Wine to use TrueType fonts please install a version of FreeType greater than or equal to 2.0.5.


Wine cannot find the FreeType font library. To enable Wine to use TrueType fonts please install a version of FreeType greater than or equal to 2.0.5.

Now, I don't know when this started or why. But I have fonts installed:
ibfreetype6/now 2.12.1+dfsg-3~22.04.sav0 amd64 [installed,local]

libfreetype6/jammy-security,jammy-updates 2.11.1+dfsg-1ubuntu0.1 i386

The 1.5 version boots up just fine, I just can't run the installer for some reason in Lutris.

Any idea how to proceed?

Using mangohud with GDLauncher flatpak ?

Hi ! I'm trying to monitor my performance and temps in minecraft from GDLauncher Flatpak, therefore I want to use Mangohud that I configured through Goverlay.

When starting GDLauncher I get and error telling me that libMangoHud.so cannot be preloaded :

``` $ mangohud flatpak run io.gdevs.GDLauncher

ERROR: ld.so: object 'libMangoHud.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (cannot open shared object file): ignored. ```

Has anyone got a solution to get this working ?

Edit : I'm using - GPU RX 6700 mobile - OS Manjaro unstable - mangohud-git from the AUR (tried with the repo's version, didn't work either)
