Gaming on Radeon HD 7950 using Mesa 17.3.2

To my fellow Linux gamers and soon-to-be Linux gamers, I just want to share this YouTube video I found wherein a Radeon HD 7950 is tested on Linux using Borderlands 2, DiRT Showdown, Mad Max, Metro 2033, and Dirt Rally.

Does linux run starforce/defenseline DRM games?

I have two games I want to play, trackmania sunrise and original, they dont work on windows 10. starforce and windows 10 absolutely hate each other. So i was thinking of just installing linux to play these games? Will it work? Alternatively i could also installing windows 7 x64. Also VM'S are slow and laggy.

Steam acting strange... unusual prompt box/window.

I'll ask here because /r/steam keeps deleting my submission... i was watching a TV show, this pops ups: https://i.imgur.com/Xg9uEcS.png

I haven't changed anything relating to my account (not recently anyway). I logged in, got my auth code from the steam android app, logged out/logged back in... every thing is now normal?

Why did this prompt appear? First time i've ever seen it since steam was initially launched on Linux. Maybe i'm being overly paranoid about this, but i'd like to know why this appeared anyway. Has anyone randomly had this before?

[Mafia Steam version] black screen "Unhandled exception:"

Hi, my fellow wine lovers.

after a long time, i tried to get Mafia 1 to run again on my Ubuntu 16.04 Machine.

to that end, i bought the steam version. My steam WINEPREFIX already runs Fallout New Vegas and Subnautica without problems.

I made sure to install VCRUN6 and the MCF42.DLL before installing mafia.

Installation went without problem. The first attempt to start the game brought up the Configuration UI ( as normal with older games).

I choose the appropriate resolution for my screen and close it. Then I start the game again.

-> Black screen and an error message pops up

here the error message: HERE

I have no idea what to do now.

First time linux user. I have a Thinkpad T430 and with an Nvidia NVS 5400m and intel i7 integrated graphics. Why does CS:GO not run well?

It ran well on my Dell Inspiron with an i3 dual core Intel HD 4000 1.9gz. But this Thinkpad I bought seems to have an actual Nvidia graphics chip and it runs worse on CS:GO. However, Half-Life 2 runs buttery smooth and they're both off the source engine.

I know the NVS 5400m isn't supposed to be powerful, but I at least assumed it would be just as, if not a little more powerful than integrated graphics.

I updated the Nvidia drivers. Should I switch back to the open source drivers?

what upgrades for windows 10 gpu passthrough?

My current build is an i5-6500 ASUS H170 ATX board LGA1151 rx 480 8gb 2x4gb 2133 ddr4

I've gotten it working on this hardware, but It's VERY slow . I am planning to run Linux as my host OS and have windows 10 installed for games. Which processor should I go with to be able to run both? I know that many of you are probably going to stay to stick with Intel or the same socket because of my intel board, but I've been considering switching by board to a smaller one anyway to get rid of my huge tower. I'm interested in AMD or Intel options.

I also have 3 monitors that are used by this computer so this CPU would have to do some heavy lifting for those as well, so suggestions for a good low cost graphics card (I know that's impossible to find nowadays) to go with it and use for the host.

Basically I'm just wondering what CPU I should get for running Linux and Windows 10 for gaming simultaneously and also wondering what good low cost graphics cards I could use to still play some native Linux titles. Thanks.

Old GPU and Not enough memory Error

Trying to play Overwatch with a Radeon HD 5870 2-Gb edition, old but in theory should work. The problem I am having is after I log in and load up the game to the main menu it freezes and the graphics get funky. Afterward, I get the error from Lutris

radeon: Not enough memory for command submission.
radeon: Not enough memory for command submission. 
radeon: Not enough memory for command submission.
radeon: Not enough memory for command submission.

Now I beleive this is due to Wine making assumptions about the GPU memory or of something similar in nature but I was wondering if anyone had some knowledge on how to fix this problem.

Question: Linux-friendly gaming keyboards & mices

Hi guys,

I would like to know which companies still make linux-friendly/supported gaming keyboards and mices, officially or unoficially.

I am looking to buy soon a MMO mouse (LOTS of buttons) and a mechanical keyboard, and I am wondering which companies remain, as I see that Roccat has fantastic support but, alas, the maintainer left the driver project

The only gaming brand I see that currently has fantastic driver support is Corsairand Razer remains out of the question

Is there any brand hidden out there?

How to get wine-staging-pba 3.3 on Ubuntu?

I'm using PlayOnLinux and I used it to install Wine 3.3 on KDE Neon 16.04, but I'm looking forward to testing wine-staging-pba 3.3 as well but there doesn't seems to be any PPA that provides it.

I'm already running my games in PlayOnLinux so don't want to use Lutris if there is a way to install this system-wide. Any ideas besides compiling wine + applying wine-staging patches + applying pba patches myself?

EDIT: Ok, thanks to @yulizi comment, I tried wine-staging-pba. Ok, so I just tested this with NeverWinter Online, and while the FPS was definitely highly by ~15 FPS, I noticed the following issues:

  • Lots of stutter!! The FPS counter was 60 FPS but the stutter was great and just ruins the increased FPS.
  • Random graphical glitches here and there.

I will stick with 3.3 for now and will give 3.3-staging a go as well.

AMD Radeon RX 480; Significant Performance Issues On Devuan


I am having significant performance issues on Devuan Jessie. On the dreaded Windows side, I have great performance on all sorts of games and applications, but on Linux, I have terrible graphical performance. I know this isn't anyone's fault in particular, but I'd like to diagnose and resolve this issue.

I am pretty much unable to play any game, because the moment that I open up anything even mildly graphically intensive, I am faced with a frozen screen until I alt-f4 the game. I am not even playing intensive games; I am trying Night In The Woods, OpenMW, and Faster Than Light. Balder's Gate 2 is pretty much the only game I have gotten to run at any framerate above nought. It was choppy and unplayable, but it ran.

Below, I have included a bunch of information that I think may be helpful.

Kynseed developer will consider Linux if there is demand

Kynseed is a 2D RPG sandbox life sim coming to Windows through the Early Access program this year: http://store.steampowered.com/app/758870/Kynseed/

Description from the store page:

Kynseed is a sandbox RPG adventure life sim brought to you by developers who worked on the Fable series for Lionhead Studios.

Live your life in a quirky world where everyone ages and dies, including your pets! Take control of the mystical Kynseed and grow your family legacy over generations as you pass your skills and powers down to your children.

  • Run a tavern, apothecary, goods store or blacksmith. Farm your land. Go adventuring and battle dark faery tale creatures. Or do them all. The choice is yours.
  • Develop relationships with NPC’s who have their own lives and loves, and who will remember your deeds, actions and pranks!
  • Find and use Proverbs to unlock the secrets of each ingredient, creature and inhabitant of a place where folk tales are all true.
  • Gather the materials to create better items, craft beers or to mix cures for a range of bizarre maladies for the simple people of the land.
  • Deal with the mysterious Fae gentleman, Mr Fairweather and buy strange artifacts from him that aid your chores, help you in combat or let you just mess with the world….but be aware of the life tax he extracts annually!

In Kynseed, live your lives the way you choose in a lovingly hand-crafted and huge 2D open world.

I think it looks extremely interesting.

Let's show there is demand for Linux by making noise (nicely and politely, of course) in this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/758870/discussions/0/1694914736012629819/?tscn=1520437207

Games crashing when alt-tabbing

Hello all, this is my first post so I apologise in advance if I've missed out any information. On most games I've been playing using wine lately I have noticed that when alt-tabbing out of the game and going back in, it will crash the game and sometimes even hard crash the whole computer, forcing a reset.

The games this has been happening on so far are doom 2016, swtor and skyrim.

Also with doom I keep getting random hard crashes when playing it, seemingly at random, but a couple of times when the game is saving, does anyone know of any issues/resolutions surrounding either of these?

My details:

Gtx1080ti proprietary drivers i5 6600k @4.5ghz 16gb ddr4 ram 500gb ssd

Solus budgie

Various versions of wine, most notably version 3.3pba for skyrim and swtor and 2.21staging for doom 2016, although I have tried others and the same issues have persisted.

Also if anyone plays swtor 3.3pba gives practically identical performance to Windows, even on max settings.

Any help would be appreciated and again, first post, sorry if it lacks sufficient info, please let me know if that's the case.

I look forward to your assistance, thank you all

Edit: all games installed through lutris just so you know

Lutris & Blizzard Games: Installers updated to Wine Staging 3.3 (+PBA)

I have updated the Lutris installers for the Blizzard Games that can be run with Blizzard App (Except for Overwatch.)

What's new:

  • Wine-Staging 3.3 for every game. The games that benefit from Wine-PBA are using Wine Staging 3.3 patched with PBA (pba-3.3 runner).
  • No longer do you need to run "killall Battle.net.exe Agent.exe" after starting a game, this problem doesn't exist on Staging 3.3
  • "winetricks nocrashdialog" is used to stop those annoying .exe errors Blizzard App was throwing lately. Also hides the error when you shutdown HearthStone.
  • "UseXVidMode=n" Stops Blizzard App / Games of changing your desktop gamma. If you use Redshift (or similar) to reduce blue light at night, you don't get blinded anymore when starting a game.
  • All game prefixes are set to Win 10. Sometimes you can get better fps with another win version, but that seems setup depending. You can fiddle with it yourself if you want.

Here is the list for quick access:

Possible Issues

  • Wine-PBA should work for NVidia and AMD, and give more fps. But I only have NVidia, so I had to rely on others to tell me that it works for AMD.
  • Wine-PBA on Intel is unknown to me completely. If you feel it doesn't work for Intel, change the wine-runner to Wine Staging 3.3 (staging-3.3).
  • I updated everything today in 1 sitting. I could have made an error.

Please test the installers, and report back to me here on Reddit. I want to know any issues you might have, but would also like to hear your successes. You can keep your current installs by "Adding another version". Just make sure you don't install into the same prefix, just add something to the default prefix name. I like to add "2" to the end of the prefix if I install a 2nd copy, etc...

I hope you enjoy these updates, may the FPS be with you.

Questions about Raven Ridge

So I want to put together a new system and I want to give the new Raven Ridge APUs a try. I don't game as much on PC as I used to and this system would be mostly for emulators (Dolphin and older Nintendo consoles mostly).

I'm pretty confident that an r3 2200g would be more than capable of running Gamecube games, but would it be fine running stuff like Rocket League and CS:GO at decent framerates? I haven't really seen any tests for these APUs on Linux using those titles.

Choosing a distro

I recently began building my new gaming PC, and I wanted to run Linux as opposed to windows. I use the computer for various types of gaming and gaming software, from hosting my Steam and GOG libraries, to playing League and hosting the Battle.net client. I also typically use it for schoolwork (writing papers and the like), and various other general use (googling, movies, etc.). I'm looking for a distro thats very flexible, can run a lot of programs and whatnot, but also quite stable. I've heard Debian and its derivatives are often the most stable, but also not very flexible. I'm new to Linux and coming from Windows, but not afraid of doing a bit more work to get a much better experience, within reason.

Anyway to reach and report some kind of bug about Talos Principle Vulkan?

I'm having an awkward problem. Talos Principle 64 bit with Vulkan starts stuttering after 5 mins into the game and then either completely freeze my system or just quits after a complete freeze moment.

Odd thing is ; after that happened other games start to stutter or quit themselves.

I purged Nvidia drivers and problem was there again. Then i switched to Intel again ( Prime based laptops ) and after that to Nvidia and problem was gone with other games. I didn't try Talos anymore.

"Input not supported" monitor error upon launch

When I try to run a game through Steam on WINE, right before the game loads I lose my monitor. I just get a floating screan-saver-esque box with "Input Not Supported" that appears to be part of my monitor firmware rather than my actual computer. Any idea what's going on or how to fix it?

Getting a lot of mixed information on getting Overwatch to run on Wine. How, in noob(ish) terms, would one get OW to run?

Running macOS 10.13.3, High Sierra (a Hackintosh). GTX 1050 Ti, Pentium G4560.

I have heard that OW runs well in Wine. However, I am very inexperienced with Wine (I've only ever used CrossOver) and don't know where to start. Would anyone please point me in the right direction? Thank you!

What do you guys think - how should we allocate the giveaway? We'll give a few copies away here on the sub and the rest on www.twitter.com/Mostly_Linux or twitch.tv/MostlyLinux.

Terrific game with Day 1 Linux support.

Wine freezing on fullscreen (Rimworld) with minimized icon on corner when alt-tabbing

What I've tried: Changing versions to devel and staging (I think, please let me know if there are any solutions pertaining to this because anything helps).

What happens: Game works fine in fullscreen initially, but when I alt-tab the game freezes with a small miinified screen version on the top left corner. Tilda works but no other windows focus. The game works in windowed and in virtual desktop but that leads to bugs and lower performance. I remember I got this working on xfce on the same computer but I recently switched to gnome and just wiped everything, so idk if I did any fix before to solve this issue.

Can I disable the Wine System Tray?

I'm on GNOME with wine-staging 3.3. Every time I open the Battle.net launcher, a little window saying "Wine System Tray" appears. It's really annoying and I'd like to disable it.

SwingSwingSubmarine has stopped making games - Seasons after Fall release suspended

Bad news everyone. At least this explaines the silence.

Hi Swiftpaw,

Unfortunately no, there is a huge chance that there will never be any Linux version of Seasons after fall.
Our company has stopped creating games for now.

That's too bad, but at least we have these other games to look forward to!

FoxTail - in early access now

FOX'n'FORESTS - releasing in spring

TUNIC - releasing next year

Foxfolk - there was news of it coming, but I can't find the source at the moment

Decreasing resolution brightens the output on external monitors

I have a dated laptop, but like to play some games from time to time. In general I have the laptop screen turned off and everything is rendered on my 2k monitor. please note: some games played via wine behave better if I decrease the resolution and set a virtual desktop inside of wine. So when playing games I decrease the resolution from 2k to e.g. 720p via xrandr which immediatley gives a very bright screen -> Black is grey and stays grey. I tried this with 2 different machines and either HDMI or DisplayPort. Also it does not seem to matter if this is Xorg or Wayland.

a quick guide on how to fix screen tearing when using XFCE, LXDE, MATE and other DEs

This is a problem that I was recently dealing with and which I fixed on xubuntu.

First of all, try the native DE options and see if screen tearing can be fixed via those options. This usually works on modern AMD and Nvidia GPUs. If they fail, install compton and run it as a start-up application.

compton --backend glx --paint-on-overlay --vsync opengl-swc

That's it. :)

You can also install the compton settings editor to enable or disable fade and shadow features for windows.

Need help trying to get a game to run in wine?


I use OS X and I've recently been trying to get Deathsmiles (a shmup form which I've read have no problems running in wine) to work in wine and I've had trouble doing so. I tried to get steam to run for the longest time, and it's just too buggy for it to perform properly. I decided that I'll try a cracked version, and the installation went smoothly, and I replaced the default.exe with the cracked version. And when I try to play it, I get an error message saying that the program default.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close.

So I decided maybe I should try it without the crack, and still got the same issue. I have the program error details here.

PSA: Found possible fix for overwatch on amd with staging higher than 2.16 (works on 3.3 staging!)

So as many of you know, AMD players havent been able to use anything higher than awesie's overwatch 2.16 wine build due to a hard lock with amd gpus.

Well, I think I found a solution:


with this i was able to run overwatch on wine 3.3 staging, using mesa 18 rc4 and my vega 64. Video incoming shortly!

Trouble finding CD/DVD drive in PlayOnLinux

Hi, I think i'm doing this right, I installed the newest version of PlayOnLinux via the command terminal in Debian 9 (Gnome), I am trying to get Starcraft 2, wings of liberty to work, i get to the part where it asks me to insert the disc, i do, then it asks me to mount the cd/dvd drive, ok, I do. Then it says it does not have root command even though I enabled it earlier using "su". The drive shows up in files, and I'm able to access the files, but it just wont get past the part in PlayOnLinux, yes, I have tried copying the files from the usb to the conputer, but the disc seems to be copyright protected, and I cant extract the files. I hope you wonderful people can help, please and thank you!

Humble "Classics Return" Giveaway!

Hiya, I've purchased the $15 tier of the Humble Classics Return Bundle and I'll be giving away the contents of it to you guys.

If you're interested write your 4 most wanted games from the bundle and tell me about a song or band that you're into right now.

Even if you donate as little as $1 it will be amazing. If you can't donate all I ask is you share this around to help her reach her goals.
If you are feeling generous feel free to sponsor her here and let her know Sacharias sent you with a comment =)

I've decided to port 'Forgive Me My Henchmen' for Linux :)

Hey Linuxers,

For three years, I've been working on a game called Forgive Me My Henchmen. In it, you play as the typical action movie head-bad guy, deploying henchmen and sabotaging a building to delay an unstoppable one-man army.

If you want, you can check out the trailer.

I had a friend saying "man, don't hit up this subreddit unless you can 100% guarantee the Linux port doesn't get cancelled because that's happened a bunch of times" so I want you guys to know that I'm going to do my absolute best to make this happen. Even though I've never ported to Linux before, I am using Gamemaker Studio, which (supposedly) makes porting to Linux relatively straightforward. Hopefully, that is the case. If not, I will do everything I can to make it happen regardless.

I am hoping to release the game on all platforms on July 9th BUT that will depend on how the kickstarter goes. If the kickstarter doesn't work out, then I'll keep on working on the game (and a Linux release), it just might just take a LOT longer to release, that's all.

Anyway, if you're curious, wanna show your support, or simply want more Linux games, check out the kickstarter which is going on now. You can also ask me any questions if you have any. Cheers guys!

The Humble "Classics Return" Bundle only has 24 hours remaining, only one game isn't Linux compatible!

The best part is probably Wasteland 2 for Beat The Average, it's such an amazing game.

Playing Stellaris/EU4/presumably any paradox game at 1080p with 4K desktop resolution doesn't work

Does anyone play Paradox games on Linux? I just downloaded Steam on my brand-new Linux Mint 18.3 install, and unfortunately it doesn't appear that I can play Paradox games on any resolution other than the native resolution. If I keep my desktop at 4k but try to run the game at 1080p, I get into a very strange state where my "viewport" onto the desktop appears to go into 1080p, but it's like I'm zoomed in onto my 3840x2160 desktop. The game runs at the lower left corner, but I can't click anything or interact with the game window at all. After force closing the game I have to reset my resolution back to 4k.

I have worked around this temporarily with a Bash script that xrandr's my desktop down to 1080p and back, but it is really annoying. I couldn't find much on Google about it, unfortunately.

Anyone else had (and hopefully solved) this issue?

Need help running Hearthstone

I have tried 32-bit with/without -force-dxd9 on winehq-staging 2.21 and winehq-stable 3.0 . The game boots but I get a black screen. I get the cursor and moving it around tells me that the UI is working (the clicks when you hover over Arena/Tavern Brawl). I use Debian Stretch.

edit: solution was to use -force-d3d9 instead of -force-dxd9. Thanks to /u/IngeniousDox . For those googling this issue, my current setup is using Debian Stretch with Winehq-staging 2.21 with a 32-bit prefix. I have used the latest winetricks to download vcrun2017, vcrun6, latest directx9 and latest directx10 libraries.

Windows vs linux

ok. so we have the facts. linux is far better than windows. any true computing enthusiast will agree. but why IS windows SO terrible? i thought windows 98 was bad back in the day. now we have windows 10. and its all about invading your privacy, and slowing your computer down to a crawl. i cannot help think that M$ does this on purpose. How can M$ make windows so terrible after 10 versions? not to mention the xbox! again, windows 10. total rubbish in comparison the the ps4. (linux,freebsd) is microsoft all about the money and not the customer?

Getting StarCraft II running on Fedora 27


I am having trouble getting StarCraft II running on Fedora 27. I have tried just installing WINE and then trying from there. Couldn't get it work so I tried doing it through Lutris, got further, was able to sign in to Battle.net but then all kinds of errors. Is there a detailed guide or can a Fedora user point me in the right direction?

trouble installing bnet and overwatch under wine 3.2

as the title says I can't get either bnet or overwatch to work. The second I launch bnet I get an error message telling me SystemSurvey.exe encountered an error and has crashed and then it says bnet was encountering an issue. I can keep using bnet after this but attempting to close either of the error windows will cause them to pop up again. Overwatch also doesn't work, attempting to launch the game just gives me something along the lines of "game initialization failed" has anyone encountered this issue? How do I go about solving it

1-) Game looks like compared to Deus Ex HR and users call it pretty bad. Is it really that unbearable game?

2-) I have a habit. When i buy a game ; i also purchase it's dlc's or deluxe edition. Should i do it witrh that one too?

3-) I have a Gtx 1050 4 gb. Can i get some respectable framerates or not?

Hi, I am just wondering if there are any good free games out there for Linux? I am rocking a i7-2600(non k) with 8gb RAM and a GTX 580 so requirements won't be much of an issue. Sorry if this question is asked a lot. I would really appreciate nonetheless though if you did leave your recommendations.

Insurgency not launching (Ubuntu 17.10, Mesa drivers)

After updating to Ubuntu 17.10, attempting to run Insurgency through steam does not work. It opens the Steam window that says "Launching Insurgency", then the window closes and nothing opens.

Running the Linux executable (insurgency.sh) in the terminal gives me the following message:

libGL error: unable to load driver: radeonsi_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi
libGL error: unable to load driver: radeonsi_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing

  Minor opcode of failed request:  3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
  Value in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  85
  Current serial number in output stream:  86

It then exits.

Neither verifying the game files nor reinstalling Insurgency have fixed the problem. I have tried reinstalling Steam, which did not fix the problem. I am currently on the Padoka stable Mesa drivers.

Can't get SteamVR working at all (AMD)

I have a Radeon RX 580 that I use with Solus (and now Ubuntu too). Despite following the instructions to a tee, and even installing Ubuntu on a second hard drive and doing it again but with a PPA, I just can't get SteamVR to work no matter what I do. Has anyone had any luck with this recently? All I get is this 306 error. I know this is still in development stages, but surely someone has this working with an AMD graphics card? What am I missing?

[Test] Wine performance v 3.3

Note: No absolute numbers because I never recorded it

Holycrap what an improvement, from the moment I turned on the game (Heroes of the Storm) it was no difference, but when I was in the game (playing the game not being in the lobby) the smooth performance was equal to Windows 10. I did not put on the FPS counter at first, but at the second game I was amazed that I got ~90 FPS with my system.

I play with the lowest graphic settings because Blizzard are known for not optimizing their for systems, "it just plays okey on EVERY system". inxi output:

System: Host: phasedraco Kernel: 4.15.7-60.current x86_64 bits: 64 gcc: 7.3.0 Desktop: Budgie 10.4 (Gtk 3.22.28) Distro: Solus 3.99 CPU: Quad core Intel Core i7-2600K (-HT-MCP-) arch: Sandy Bridge rev.7 cache: 8192 KB Card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Hawaii PRO [Radeon R9 290/390] Display Server: x11 (X.Org 1.19.6 ) drivers: ati,amdgpu (unloaded: modesetting,fbdev,vesa,radeon) Resolution: 1920x1080@60.00hz OpenGL: renderer: AMD Radeon R9 200 Series (HAWAII / DRM 3.23.0 / 4.15.7-60.current, LLVM 5.0.1) version: 4.5 Mesa 17.3.6

Going to try more demanding games with my low end/old system. Exciting times for wine, that is for sure !

Does anyone know of a good SNES emulator?

I tried to obtain ZSNES. Downloaded the "linux build" from the site, was surprised to see it was only source code. Tried to build it, didn't work. Fixed really blatant errors in the source code (e.g. they tried calling posix methods without including the appropriate header files for some fucking reason, no idea how that'd make it into a release) and eventually got to the point where my only errors were:

/usr/bin/ld: i386 architecture of input file `video/sw_draw.o' is incompatible with i386:x86-64 output
/usr/bin/ld: i386 architecture of input file `video/2xsaiw.o' is incompatible with i386:x86-64 output

/usr/bin/ld: i386 architecture of input file `video/hq4x32.o' is incompatible with i386:x86-64 output
...a fuckton more...

Can't resolve these ones, despite specifically selecting an i386 architecture when running ./configure :(

Any other SNES emulators that actually work on linux?

Dirt Rally crashing on start

Hey, for the past few months, whenever I stay Dirt Rally, and click play on the launcher, it crashes seconds later. I am running on Ubuntu 17.10 and NVIDIA 390.25. Feral Interactive has been unable to help me. Does anyone else have this problem? Had anyone fixed this?

Running games on Linux, What's the best path to choose?

I'm currently a Windows 10 Pro user looking to switch to linux for all my needs including gaming, I have my chosen distribution which is Deepin OS 15.5, I want to play GTA V/Online and Assetto Corsa on my Linux install and wanted guidance on how I go about setting it all up, unfortunately for me GPU Passthrough isn't an option as I don't have a good enough secondary GPU and I am limited to how many PCIe slots I have available, my system is a Dual Xeon X5650 workstation with 48GB of RAM and a GTX 1060 6GB, the CPUs do not have inbuilt graphics so I only have my GTX1060 for video output, any help would be appreciated, I need to be able to run Assetto Corsa as I am an Admin on the largest unofficial Facebook group for the game and I am creating a website for the group as we speak, I also really want to show others that gaming on Linux with Windows based games is possible and provide a tutorial going through how it's done once I have done it myself

Stellaris: What is "ALL DLCs" ?


while playing my first matches online with Stellaris, i saw many rooms flagging with "ALL DLCs". I usually get access deniend, obviously because i dont have the needed content.

So what DLCs would i need to be compatible to all multiplayer games content ?

I saw on Steam, its far over 100.-€ for "ALL DLCs" but there is music and stuff i may not need ... so, whats needed ?

Is there an on-going effort to develop a program for Linux that is similar to FRAPS and MSI Afterburner? Also, why is OCAT still Windows-only?

I know there are games with built-in benchmark tools but few of them reflect real world game play. Also, most of them only show the benchmark results as frame rate data.

For GLXOSD, can we ask Ryan Gordon to pick up its development? It currently does not work with Vulkan and is not as easy to use compared to FRAPS.

03/03/2018 09:07:25 CEST



I did a plenty of research and covered most of my questions, but two still remain.

  1. RAM caching, in windows i can configure to use X MB of RAM to cache recent files requested from hard disk (as i dont have ssd yet). My cache hit rate goes up to 80-90%, which means most of files are instantly load from RAM. Is there a way to enable it in linux?

  2. Post-processing shaders. I use reshade.me to add adaptive sharpen, colorfulness and smaa, which improve picture a lot. I put a d3d9 dll file into game bin folder and it loads these shaders. Any way to get it working on linux?

Since WINE 3.3 came out today, and CSMT is on by default, I figured I would take a stab at it with Diablo 3.

The thing is, I'm not sure why the game isn't launching.

I can get into the bnet app just fine, but when I hit play, it tries to launch, then nothing comes up. I assume it's crashed, but no feedback is given.

Previously I was using 2.21-staging, and this is a 32bit prefix with POL of course.

Has anyone else gotten D3 going with 3.3? And if so, what did you have to do? Did you see any gains?

03/03/2018 02:32:29 CEST


I recently fully committed to linux, and there's new things to learn every day. I'm at Wine 3.0 and my desktop icons work. I update to 3.3 - they don't work. Change back to stable branch, and they're back to working. How do I stop them from breaking, or fix them after updating?


03/03/2018 01:41:34 CEST


I love Linux, been a user since 1994 (slackware). I've always had a Linux machine to use, sometimes as my main device, but not very often. More often than not I would have a spare machine with linux on it or, more recently, as a VM on my laptop and always one or two always on VMs at my house for messing around with. I moved to Debian based distros in about 2011, Ubuntu a bit but really clinged to the now defunct CrunchBang. Now on the flip side, I've always had a Windows machine, mainly for gaming, I know common excuse. I've attempted to virtualize windows on Linux with a dedicated gpu using passthrough with minimal luck. My mobo doesn't support it and I'm too cheap to replace it at the moment.

Currently I'm back on trying to make it my main OS on my Dell Precscion 5520 laptop. Ubuntu 17.04 updated to 17.1 was the first attempt. It was going great for a few days, then I would use the machine after suspending it for only a few hours and the battery was dead. I had nothing to loose reloading a different distro and flipped to Elementary OS. Pretty much the same battery issues, but it was a little better. Ran that for about 2 weeks.

Aside from the battery the real kicker here was track pad sensitivity. While typing my cursor would jump around not ignoring my palm randomly touching the track pad. Very annoying to say the least. I'm in the process of abandoning my laptop linux project since windows 10 ran so well on it. I think my best bet is to pony up for a new mobo, maybe one that can take my ram and potentially CPU (currently rockin 64GB ddr3).

So in all this is just a rant, if you have any feedback let me know. Thanks for reading

TL;DR Linux is awesome but sucks on laptops. Ideally I should try to run it as my main desktop machine and virtualize Windows for gaming.

Hello all. I'm a linux newbie and have been trying to get my ps2 guitar working with a game called Clone Hero. The issue isn't with the game but with the controller emulation software I'm trying to use. I've heard xboxdrv is the way to go when trying to emulate an xbox controller but I have an issue that occurs anytime I try to run "sudo xboxdrv --detach-kernel-driver" or any xboxdrv command for the most part. When I run it it gives me an error saying LIBUSB_ERROR_IO. I have looked it up on google and searched for hours but haven't found any fix that has worked.

Any thoughts?

Hi guys, I'm planning to make a new PC for gaming, running Ubuntu.

I got the RX480 that I want to use in my new PC. My old PC's CPU is i7 2600k 3.4Ghz. The socket used for this is LGA 1155. I can't use the motherboard anymore because it has an old legacy BIOS that doesn't work at all with RX480

While browsing for mobo, I figured out that LGA 1155 compatible motherboards are really rare and really expensive. Do you think I should even go for it ?

If I buy a new motherboard+new CPU, which ones should I go for ? Are the AMD Ryzen CPU great ?

Thank you for reading me

So here's the thing, i got a Lenovo latop (Legion Y520) with 8 gigs of ram, an I7 and a 1050 TI, it's more powerful than my desktop, I installed Ubuntu 17.10 on it and have installed mostly development tools (i got the laptop mainly as a game dev machine), but i still want to play games on it, so i installed the proprietary nvidia drivers, i switched to xorg from wayland, i installed oracle java 8, but i still have worse performance than on my desktop, which has a 5 year old I5, and a R7 260x.

Vanilla Minecraft runs at around 60 fps, with the ocassional dip down to 40, while on my desktop it runs at 60 with the ocassional dip to 55.

Heavily modded minecraft if it doesn't crash runs at 50 fps, with frequent dips to 10, while on my desktop it runs a stable 60 fps, with the ocassional dip to 40.

Serious Sam Fusion 2017 freezes my system if i try to run it.

Anyone got any tips on how to make things run better ? I am open to suggestions of other linux distros, though i'll have to try them after sunday, cause i've got an exam i need the laptop for on sunday.

Oh and another thing is that when i open the nvidia settings, if i press advanced, absolutely nothing happens

Hi, I've been trying AssaultCube, mostly for when I don't want to launch something super graphics-heavy. However, I've run into a couple major issues.

1: I can't alt-tab out of the game, I have to quit it entirely to exit it

2: For some reason, ACR lags extremely horribly on my NVIDIA GPU (I haven't tested with Intel yet.) It doesn't even perform well at the lowest setting, which is basically the equivalent of the original game's highest graphics setting. Considering I can get games like Portal 2 and Overwatch to run on this system without a hitch, that's a bit of a tip-off that something else is going wrong.

Has anyone else had these problems? Has anyone found a remedy?

I'm trying to run dota 2 in a low end machine (apu amd e-350 - hd radeon 6310 - 3gb ram) the thing is even if I use the smaller resolution and all graphic settings to minimun the fps never changes, it's always at 10.

I know the machine can't run it in a way people would consider "playable" but just want to play some bot matches and that's it.

Does anyone has any idea of what can be?

Hi, I was playing XCOM2 with no issues on my old laptop then I bought a new one. I was expecting better performance but for some reason I've got 10 fps regardless resolution or graphics settings. 10 fps in 1024x768 at lowest possible settings, 10 fps at 1920x1080 at medium settings altough games like Deus Ex MD, Dirt Rally, CSGO, Life is Strange, Hitman etc. run fine with excellent performance in 1080p. XCOM2 is the only game with this problem.

HW/SW specs of my old laptop:

  • i5 4210H
  • 16GB RAM DDR3
  • GTX 860M 2GB / Optimus disabled
  • Arch Linux x64 + Gnome Shell 3.26

HW/SW specs of my new laptop:

  • i5 7300HQ
  • 8GB RAM DDR4
  • GTX 1050 Ti 2GB / Optimus disabled
  • Arch Linux x64 + Gnome Shell 3.26

I have no idea what is going on. I've played 148 hours on my old laptop with no issues in 1600x900 medium settings around 30-40 fps. I should now be able to play in 1080p. I should also say that GPU utilization is less than 10% and the game is extremely slow (1-3 fps) even on the 2D avenger strategy map so something is wrong.

Does anyone have any idea how could I fix this? Nvidia drver 390.25.

  • EDIT: updated with glxinfo https://pastebin.com/1meUeUM3
  • EDIT 2: yes, even with mods disabled and happens in both vanilla XCOM2 and WOTC
  • EDIT3 - Fixed by deleting config folders in "~/.local/share/feral-interactive" and unsubscribing from all mods. Thank you everyone for trying to help me, I appreciate it.

So I've been searching all over online. I get steam downloaded and installed (I've used the repositories as well as steam-launcher in a few different forms including the .deb file from the Steam website). Every single time I get the same problem. Steam installs fine, then when I run it it gets stuck in an update loop. I have seen many people have this problem but none exactly like mine, or if it was similar, the fixes didn't work. I've wiped, purged, re-installed. I've installed packages, changed the libstdc++ to add .bak as some have suggested. Installed fonts of all kinds and nothing works. I've tried using PlayOnLinux with Wine and it does the same thing. It seems to have troubles with package sizes or compressed files and I get checksum errors during the update that set it back almost to the beginning sometimes. Eventually it quits and says Steam needs to be connected to the internet even though my connection is working well. I even tried looking in the steam.sh to see if I could set mirrors thinking one of them is bad but have had no luck. Sorry for the long rant, I'm used to figuring these problems out on my own and I've hit a brick wall. I'm not proficient at scripting so much of steam.sh didn't make a lot of sense to me. Has anyone run into this and found a solution?
