Is Radeon Rays v4 proprietary?

According to https://gpuopen.com/radeon-rays/ Radeon Rays v4 is proprietary. However there is a license file in the github repository that states the opposite. Does anyone know if Radeon Rays v4 is proprietary and if so, will it stay that way forever or will it be liberated? Will the Free and open source community have to work for years reverse engineering this shit so we can have Freedom rays?

Any suggestions for this build to run linux?


I am planning on building a pc :https://pcpartpicker.com/list/HHLp8JThe purpose of this machine will be to run a main OS of Manjaro, and make a virtual windows 10 machine purely for gaming, web browsing and office/uni work.

I plan on allocating the Windows VM 6 cores from the total 8 and run Manjaro with the remaining 2, does it work as such? or I can allocate all of 8 cores to the VM? (Not sure with the allocation)

The 710 GPU would be for Manjaro / RTX 3070 for VM.

32GB would be split in half for Manjaro and VM to run without any problems. (Too much?)

Explanation of setting up the cores/threads as well as the ram usage would be fantastic, as I think my thinking is wrong and I might just buy an overkill machine.

Any responses and suggestions will be valued greatly!

** I took the inspiration from this video:"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7SG7ccjn-g&list=PLUekG2ztTQ0j7TJsZNoftkJhHd2uNuToI&index=1&t=1405s&ab_channel=SomeOrdinaryGamers" seemed like a cool way to set up a PC, and I was thinking of moving from Windows anyway, so thought why not.

Record gameplay from video output (DisplayPort with HDMI adapter)?

I'd like to record gamplaying and since I don't want stress the hardware (Intel Core i5-3210M - Intel HD 4000 - Samsung SSD 860 EVO 500GB).
I was thinking to record audio/video from the video output of the laptop: it has a DisplayPort provided with an adaptor to HDMI; My screen resolution is 1366x768, and I play games to 1280x720 (some of them at 60 FPS, some others to 30 FPS). After some research seems that AverMedia Live Gamer Portable 2 would do the job. I just want record audio/video, I don't need any other functions like streaming, etc. At most I will transfer the video files from the SD card of Avermedia, on the laptop for editing them using Shotcut.

Is ok AverMedia Live Gamer Portable 2 for my purpose or there is something better/simple? Eg: in such device I will have to put in a microSD card (eg 256GB); there is something else which will also offer a internal disk or the ability to connect an external USB (3.0) HDD where record these video files?

Phasmophobia will not start

Hello, I recently purchased Phasmophobia after seeing that it has gold status on protondb, however after two installs the game will not run. When I press run, the menu to choose vr or non vr pops up, when I select the non vr option, the preparing to launch notification shows up and then the game preceeds to close immediately. I am running Arch Linux with the 5.9.1 kernel with an intel core i7 7700k, 16GB of ram, a Nvidia GTX 1070, and plenty of storage. If anyone could help that would be great.

[Lutris] Overwatch always compiling shaders

Hi, everytime i start Overwatch from the Battle.Net script, it compiles shaders. Now this is Really annoying since i really can't play until it has finished compiling.

Things i've tried:

  • Adding `__GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE_SKIP_CLEANUP=1` to system options.
  • Reinstalling the script
  • Reinstalling the game

None of these things have fixed it. Please help as this is annoying.

The Outer Worlds gog version don't start.


As the title says I'm trying to install The outer Worlds gog version. It installs fine but when i try to start the game I only get returncode 768.

I run with nvidia drivers 455.28 and linux-zen kernel (5.8) as 5.9 doesn't like nvidia right now. Tried lts kernel as well but with no luck. On 5.4 it complained about not being able to create driver L for NDIS. These does not appear on 5.8.

EA Play on Steam

So I want to try out both NFS Heat and also play the story of Titanfall 2. Upon googling "EA Play on linux" I see a lot of top results discussing permanent bans from linux users using wine/proton/dxvk/etc. The reports all seem specific to Battlefield V (which I have zero cares about) but I'm worried that I'll get scammed out of my 5 buck subscription if I try running NFS Heat as I believe it's one of them there always-online boobs.

Anyone else in the community been successful with using EA Play on linux? Or at least as successful as anyone but a top executive can be with EA....

Black screen when launching Layers of Fear 2

This may have already been addressed somewhere, so apologies in advance. I have Epic Games Store installed on my Elementary desktop through Lutris, and recently installed Layers of Fear 2 as it was a free offering. However, when I launch the game, I only get a black screen with no sound. I know it's not a GPU driver issue as I do a daily update check every day. Has anyone else experienced this, and if they have, were you able to resolve the issue? The first Layers of Fear I played on my Xbox One was really good, and I'd like to give part 2 a shot. System specs are listed below, and thanks in advance:

OS: Elementary 5.1.7

RAM: 16

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600

GPU: AMD Radeon RX 550 640SP

Awful Proton performance in specific games.

Hi, as the title says, Proton gives me really bad performance on some games. So far I've only encountered 2 distinct games that have a big performance hit, GTA IV and Risk of Rain. Now my PC ain't nothing amazing, full specs here but in short, I have an i5 3320m, Intel HD 4000 and 8GB of RAM. However, Proton really does work pretty well with some titles. Endless Space 2 works better than Windows, so does Human Fall Flat, other perform a bit worse but only a bit, barely noticeable like Dirt 3 for instance. But these two are awful.

GTA IV runs on Windows at almost constant 60FPS with everything on minimum settings at 800x600. Not the best experience but I've 100% the game multiple times, so definitely enjoyable. However with Proton, with the same, if not lower settings, I get 20FPS base, and constant dips when the action gets intense.

Risk of Rain also runs like crap. On Windows/Native version (the game has a Native Linux version, but it has game breaking bugs that will never be fixed and the game is effectively unplayable, so I have to run it with Proton) I get constant 60FPS everything on max with 1x scale (which is a superior way to play, since you can see way more of your surroundings). With Proton, the game runs at 60FPS only if there's nothing happening, if missiles or other projectiles appear on screen, or there's many enemies, the game chugs hard, it's really annoying.

Does anybody know why these games run this bad under Proton while others work wonders? Any tips to solve this? Thanks.

I can't get my wired xbox one controller to work.

I'm on arch, and my controller was working just fine last night. I tried it this morning and it wasn't connecting. It's an Xbox One S controller. It shows up when I type lsusb, but no games or steam detects it, and the light on it doesn't light up. I've tried xpad and xboxdrv, but nothing seems to work. The controller works fine on my xbox, and it works fine on my brother's windows 10 pc. I also tried another xbox one controller on my pc, but the same problem occurred. I've been trying all day to find a solution and I can't find one. All I'm seeing is "wired xbox one drivers are built in to the kernel and work out of the box," well clearly not in my case.

It's maybe worth noting that I didn't change anything over the night it stopped working. I did run a system update just to see if it was a broken driver or something, but it didn't help.

Current Status of AMD vs Nvidia Drivers

I've been gaming on Arch for the last 6 months or so on an rx 580 but it's about time to upgrade and initially I was stoked for the rx 6800, but given its $80 USD price hike over the RTX 3070 I'm strongly considering going green once we have 3rd party reviews of the rx 6800 and the GPU shortage/scalping craze has ended. I personally don't mind Nvidia's drivers being proprietary as long as it's stable. I know AMD"s drivers are baked into the kernel itself since it's open source so I was just wondering how Nvidia's drivers are today; is there much headache for installation and should I expect any kind of performance hits?

Titanfall 2 Stutters

I already did the chmod command to stop Origin from writing to the disk and causing a stutter, but when I play it still stutters on occasion. The game is still playable but I freeze for a few seconds on occasion. When we I do stutter the game says my ping is insanely high (like 700-900) and then the ping goes back to normal. I dont think its my internet connection because I play other games and my ping is perfectly fine and does not spike. I also dont think its shaders being compiled because I have around 20 hours on the video game.

Proton resolution funkiness on Wayland with multiple monitors

I was previously using Gnome, and I am trying out Sway right now (for it's VRR support).

I have had this issue on both Gnome and sway with Wayland. When launching any game that uses xwayland, the game only sees the resolution of my secondary display, which is lower than my primary display.

I mostly fixed this by swapping the display port cables between the two monitors, so now my primary monitor is DP-1 and the secondary is DP-2 instead of the other way around. Don't ask me how this works but now games like TF2 show the right options.

When running a game with proton, like Mordhau, the game still only sees the max resolution of the smaller monitor, so I am unable to play it properly.

Any idea how to fix this?

Unimplemented function iphlpapi.dll.IcmpParseReplies

I'm trying to run Project Diva Arcade Future Tone on my PC using Manjaro KDE and the version 5.18 stable of wine. The game has two modes, an Arcade Offline mode, and a Online mode with rankings and stuff, the Offline Arcade mode runs perfectly fine, and it runs great, the problem is with the online one tho, when I try to run it, it crashes almost instantly and the last thing at the terminal output is this:

0220:fixme:service:I_ScRegisterDeviceNotification Notification filters are not yet implemented.

After that it just closes, is there a way to fix this or does it mean that wine can't run it at all?

I can remember some time ago when I used Ubuntu 18, I was able to get the online mode of the game running, but when I try it now it gives me that. If anyone knows something please let me know.

Is a native D3D12 driver possible for amd/intel GPUs?

In mesa we have the radv driver, an open source vulkan implentation for amd gpus. Would it be possible to create a native open source D3D12 driver in a similar way?

As things stand if we want to run a D3D12 game we have to go through vkD3D-proton and translate to vulkan, which adds overhead, and from what I've heard may never be as performant as DXVK is for D3D11. It certainly incurs a hit at the moment. If there was a native D3D12 driver we could work around these limitations.


  • is it possible technically?
  • could it provide performance roughly equivalent to D3D12 on windows if done right?
  • Would there be any legal concerns or other qualms from the mesa folks?
  • exactly how stupidly large would such a project be, is it comparable to radv/aco development itself?
  • who would be interested in funding it?

What I found out so far:

  • Watch Dogs Legion uses BattleEye. The startup of the game won't progress any further than the BattleEye launcher if you don't set -BattlEyeLauncher as a launch parameter for the game in Ubisoft Connect. This will disable BattleEye (and stop you from accessing multiplayer features, just like disabling EasyAntiCheat in Watch Dogs 2 did). I found this launch parameter in drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Ubisoft/Ubisoft Game Launcher/games/Watch Dogs Legion/bin/BattlEye/BELauncher.ini in case anyone is wondering.
  • Splash screen. Couldn't figure out how to disable it yet, sometimes it gets hung up on the splash screen but from my tests so far in most cases the splash screen doesn't stop it.
  • When you first start the game it starts in DirectX 12 mode. The main menu and settings menu are accessible and you can create a new savegame. With Battleye disabled obviously the multiplayer menu is disabled.
  • After the savegame creation it loads forever for me - I couldn't get into actually playing the game.
  • In DirectX 12 mode the game floods my log constantly with fixme:d3d12_fence_can_signal_semaphore_locked: Timeline semaphore delta is 4294954171, but implementation only supports a delta of 2147483647. While stuck in the loading screen after creating a savegame my CPU is also well utilized and RAM usage also grew. In the end I decided to kill this process instead of waiting forever.
  • Since you have access to the settings, you may be inclined to switch from DirectX 12 to DirectX 11 mode. I tried it, it told me to restart the game to switch DirectX versions. It closed the game, tried starting it again and it doesn't start anymore. Already tried this with two installations of Watch Dogs: Legion - switching to DirectX 11 bricked my Watch Dogs: Legion installation making it impossible to start it up again (can't access the settings anymore).
  • The settings file drive_c/users/yourusername/My Documents/My Games/Watch Dogs Legion/WD3_GamerProfile.xml does not contain the information which DirectX version you want to use. With my second Watch Dogs: Legion installation I backed up this file thinking I may be able to unbrick the installation after giving DirectX 11 another try, but restoring the file from my backup did not let me launch the game again.

That's all I found so far. If any of you give it a try feel free to share what you found out.

how to fix horrendous window compositing on linux w/ nvidia cards ?

Hi. i wish to use linux (specifically Xubuntu or any varriant that isn't gnome) but withoout major FPS drops everytime i use OBS or steam if the window compositor is turned on. i tried all the compositors i could find, i even tried Compiz for some reason but none worked correctly.

what's strange is that if i don't use a window compositor at all, all my problems go away but if i do that, i get screen tearing i cannot fix. is there any way of fixing this madness without having to use nVidia PRIME ? nVidia PRIME fixed my desktop issues if i recall right but i get massive performance problems on everything using this method, which is obviously not desirable. (intel iGPU + Nvidia card)

Right now i'm on Windows 7 since i can't get linux to run correctly anymore, but i can confirm that this happens all the time. here's my hardware config (confirmed as working fine, the problem isn't hardware) :

GPU: nVidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB (PNY XLR8)

CPU : Intel Core i5-4690K (4.5GHz OC)

RAM : 16GB DDR3 1833MHz (OCd, original frequency : 1600MHz)

Sound chip: Realtek ALC1150

Motherboard : MSI Z97 Gaming 5

OS installed on a M.2 SSD (PNY CS3030)

Temps are normal, disabling overclock or intel c-states does not help. Problem does not occur on Windows 10, a similar but different problem occurs on Win7 (FPS gets havled when screen sharing on discord or using OBS with Aero turned on, but stays stable. Fixed by disabling Aero as well.)

I tried the following distros without success : Most flavors of Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Artix Linux, Calculate Linux. Ubuntu with the Unity desktop gave me the best hope, but had small graphical glitches while recording some stuff.

i think i'll have to either :

  • Make nVidia PRIME have similar performance as using a normal dedicated GPU, thus bypassing the whole problem

  • Fix windows compositing

I hope someone got the solution to this ... distrohopping is driving me crazy !

Thank you in advance.

(PS: would nVidia prime make Wayland and xWayland work like it's intended to ? that could be interesting.)

Is ultrawide worth the investment? Straight vs curved

With Big Navi coming I've been looking at new monitors (since I accidentally bought a 32" 1440p at 75Hz, not 144Hz, a year ago) and can't find much info as to ultrawide support in Linux, specifically for gaming. Other than the assumed dependence on games individually offering 3440x1440, can anyone offer their experience?

Should I go UW, or is it better to stick with a good 144Hz standard 1440p.

Also, does a curved screen make a noticeable difference or is that pure marketing

Did anyone here tried previously running Virtual Desktop or ALVR servers for Oculus Quest on Linux either through Wine or VM?

Is it even possible in theory to run VD or ALVR through VM, connect to them and run games installed on Linux? Or it's better to try running servers in wine? And if Wine, do you have any suggestions on how to set it up for running these servers?

Get Steam (and games) running natively on a x86_64 Android TV environment for HTPCs

Steam Machines are good for TV gaming, but they lack friendly non-gaming experience i.g streaming media, especially when I are lying in sofa and don't want to use wireless mouse, while Android TV products are opposite. So I think if I can run steam games and services natively on a x86_64 ATV device with good enongh hardware, even directly launch games from ATV leanback launcher, Maybe I could achieve a execellent experience?

Linux optimisations for gaming

Lately I've been interested in what we, as users, can do to optimize linux for gaming. So far I've got:

  • Using the Zen-kernel to enable F-sync.
  • Use Zram to buffer game-content in memory. (will result in higher ram-usage, so enough ram is needed)
  • Use Aninicy to manage nice-levels.
  • Use Corectl for CPU-management.
  • Close compositor before running fullscreen apps.
  • Enable Feral gamemode
  • For Nvidia, enable shader-cache, disable shader-cache-cleanup and set a dedicated shader-cache path per game (otherwise it'll be limited to 128mb).

Any other tips to add?

I'm wondering if Nvidia prime render offload will do anything (like having the onboard graphics take care of the desktop while the dedicated GPU handles the game exclusively), or if that only is useful for laptops.

Overwatch unplayable after recent update

I didn't do anything. Overwatch updated and now it's completely unplayable. It runs my CPU at 100% and my graphics card at 30%. I always let the game finish compiling shaders before I entered a game. Running target practice is fine, I get >60 fps, no slowdown or stuttering. But when I enter a multiplayer game I get simulation issues, the image freezes, models move slowly, and inputs take hundreds of milliseconds to happen.

I already saw this and added the environment variable, no change. I'm not 100% sure that Overwatch is using the graphics card tho. The image is fully rendered (barring the animation), I have graphics setting set to Medium even though this card should beable to do high.

Can someone please help me out with this. When the lag gets too bad Overwatch crashes and I'm already getting warned for abandoning matches.

Regular stuttering in Ghostrunner

Hi. I'm running Mint 20 and trying to play Ghostrunner. I'd pre-ordered the game on GOG at a discount since I played the demo, enjoyed it, and I remember it running quite well on Proton. When the full game came out, I installed it and used the latest version of Proton (5.13) to run it. The game started with a black screen, but I fixed that by using the media foundations install script (https://github.com/z0z0z/mf-install) which I also had to do with MechWarrior 5 Mercenaries (they're both Unreal Engine games, so I figured it was the same issue). Lo and behold, I was right and the game got past the intro movies and started.

From this point on it works with a good framerate. The only problem is that every 2-3 seconds or so, it hitches or stutters for a fraction of a second, almost imperceptibly. The hitching is very consistently timed and happens regardless of what is going on in the game. This wouldn't even be an issue on a slower-paced game, but Ghostrunner is anything but slow-paced, so it is quite annoying. Sometimes I mess up jumps because I didn't turn at the right rate due to the hitching. I can't exactly remember if this hitching occurred in the demo; maybe it did and I just forgot because it was so short, although I played through it 2 or 3 times. The hitching seems to persist regardless of the in-game graphics options I set.

Has anyone encountered similar issues in this or other UE4 games?

Mouse input / stuttering issues when disabling Vsync

Just installed Halo MCC on Steam using Proton 5.13-1 (or to be more precise; I've added the Steam library from my windows partition and enabled Steam Play for unsupported titles using Proton 5.13-1) and everything worked great running at 60 fps until I tried disabling Vsync, which caused the game to become sluggish / laggy while running at 240 fps. First I thought it was a screen tearing issue (although Gsync should be enabled) but then I noticed everything moves smoothly while walking around using only the keyboard, it seems that mouse input is what's causing the stuttering. I'm quite confused at what the issue is. According to Piper my mouse is set to a 1000Hz report rate and 3200DPI. I've tried disabling the Compositor but that somehow made it even worse. CPU and memory usage were both low.

I've also played Overwatch using lutris and noticed something similar. When disabling vsync the game goes from 70 fps to 110 fps but feels very laggy. But unlike Halo it's not just the mouse movement but the game seems to be laggy overall.

According to the NVIDIA X Server Settings GSync is definitely enabled for my monitor.

Linux Mint 20 on a switchable Intel/AMD Radeon 8870m GPU not living to its full potential. Expected behavior or is there something I can do?

So, the thing is, I did that whole DRI_PRIME=1 with some games (TeamFortress 2) and launched sudo radeontop .

And, while the game did ran and on sudo radeontop it showed the radeon gpu was working, I'm ashamed to say that this gpu is delivering much less than it delivered on AMD Catalyst drivers on another OS I used.

I understand it's a hassle to set up AMD, specially on Linux and a switcheroo graphics card, but my question is, is there ANYTHING I can do to get better results?

For example, Team Fortress 2, a 2007 game, was running below 25 fps on this 2013 GPU.

Anyways, it doesn't hurt to ask, I'm asking hoping that someone has a similar GPU or could just tell me if I should keep trying or give up.

OBS HEVC Hardware Encoding

I usually don't mess around much with OBS' settings. I keep what just works but I noticed few demanding games take a heavy performance toll trying to record them. I had it default to CPU software encoding with x264 but I read I should let my GPU do the encoding instead via VAAPI. So I tried recording 1080p 60FPS with vanilla OBS, the gameplay itself had almost no impact on performance but the video output resulted in a slideshow. Reducing it down to 1080p30 or 720p60 makes it smooth again. So I just assumed my GPU (AMD RX 580) can't handle more than 1080p30. But then I read it should do even up to 4k but with HEVC. OBS we get from Flatpak and the official repository doesn't support this codec however I found this from AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/obs-hevc-vaapi-git/

That indeed managed to produce a lagfree output with almost no to little performance impact. I just wonder why it isn't on master. But this might help others who are having also these kind of issues!

Selecting a graphics card and I'm honestly losing my mind

As with selecting any product on the internet these days, it's a minefield. I've been looking to an AMD RX 5700 XT and have seen a few possible 3rd party models, the trouble is there doesn't seem to be one that doesn't have at least a decent percentage of buyers complaining of all sorts of problems with them. I have no idea what percentage of actual owners of these cards this is, I have no idea if these people know what they are on about, I have no idea if they even know why they are having the problems that they are. I have no idea how many of the reviews are genuine. To make matters even more confusing, I'm pretty sure 95% of them aren't running Linux.

Can anyone weigh in on the 5700 XT's stability under Linux is? I'm also open to suggestions of other less able cards, especially ITX / SFF cards if anyone actually knows of a decent AMD SFF card? I'd value stability over performance if that matters at all.

Old joystick support

I have been using Linux flavors at home and work for decades and a big part is being able to get almost anything running with enough patience, google and tequila. But I'm stumped on one.

I have an old saitek joystick that's usb v1 and I'm try get it to work ( doesn't even look to recognize it when plugged in).

My platform is an hp laptop with ubuntu 20.04. It has a usb 3 and usb 2 port and I'm trying mostly on the v2. I thought usb 2 was backwards compatible in hardware so I'm hoping I'm just not yet finding the right package or flag to allow usb 1 connections.

Any tips or pointers are greatly appreciated.
And just to head off the discussion, yeah I plan to get a new HOTAS in time after some other more critical upgrades. But my flight sim attention is usually classic XWing, TIE, Wing Commander, etc so I really prefer to just get this little stick going again.

Overwatch compiling shaders every time it opens

I installed overwatch yesterday, it opened, compiled the shaders and I played with no issues, today I went to play it again and it started compiling shaders once more, I didn't think much of it tho so I just waited and once it finished I played the game normally, but then I went to play it again and once more it is compiling the shaders, does anyone know what's happening? It's very annoying having to wait 20 minutes every time I open the game.

I want to be able to adjust the size of the chat with mouse or keyboard shortcuts,being able to make it transparent,and being able to hide it with a shortcut.

A cool thing would be if it looks good with compositor disabled,so I don't have to waste gpu power.

I also want that it doesn't use much resources.

Nvidia Geforce RTX 2060

Hey guys

Now I do know most Nvidia cards have problems with drivers on Linux. Anybody that has this specific GPU can comment on performance? Thanks in advance!

Countryballs Heroes might get a linux port.

I've asked the devs of Countryballs Heroes if it will get a Linux port and they said "If 5% of our wishlist/ backers gonna ask for it - sure"

It has not been confirmed yet but if we can get 5% of the backers of the game to ask for it then we can get a Linux port!

This is great news for the Linux community and I, wanting the game hope this works well

Worse performance with Nvidia card than integrated Intel

I'm trying to run a couple of games on my laptop and running into problems using the nvidia card as opposed to the integrated graphics. Using the intel graphics the games will run on low graphics but experience some slight stuttering and slowing down. When I switch to the Nvidia graphics the problem gets considerably worse. I'm not running any games that should require super high specs although some are Windows games (mainly playing Magic: the Gathering Arena [Lutris], Mythgard [Steam], and Vecter [Steam]). Vecter specifically is almost unplayable on super low graphics when using Nvidia. I was able to install optimus manager which is allowing me to switch which GPU is in use, and I verified the Nvidia card was running with nvtop. I know there are long running problems with laptops using hybrid graphics cards but I can't believe that the games should be running better on integrated graphics than a discreet GPU. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Assassins Creed Syndicate 750ti

So I've been playing assassins creed syndicate and it runs and works fine through proton. I get around 30-40fps on 720p which is what the game defaults to. I am unable to run higher than 720p I suspect this is due to the impact of wine and dxvk in addition to running the game and the fact that ubisoft pc ports are kind of shit. I

know my 750ti is more than due to a replacement at this point and performance is in line with what I was experiencing on unity but a little better.

Is anyone able to run this game on 1080p with similar gpus ?

/sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage doesn't exist.

I'm trying to undervolt my RX580 card (DUAL-RX580-04G), but I can't seem to find the file that should be at /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage, and neither CoreCtrl nor radeon-profile let me see or adjust voltages. Am I missing something? I edited my grub so that it now looks like GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash udev.log_priority=3 amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffffffff".

How can I disable the Steam shader cache creation at games startup?


As per subject with update to most recent Nvidia drivers (455 series), I have to wait minutes every time I want to run a game because of the shader cache creation (even if the game hasn't been updated nor the drivers).

I understand that's the case because of some dodgy Nvidia code in the drivers, but is there a way to disable such cache creation?

Full Steps I have tried so far

  • Create a symbolic link for steam to run the game exe directly and avoiding the splash screen and EAC
  • Different Proton Versions (Proton-5.11-GE-3-MF, Proton-5.11-GE-2-MF, Proton-5.6-GE-2, Proton-5.9-GE-8-ST, Proton 5.13-1, Proton 5.0-9)
  • Also tried installing Watch Dogs 2 through Lutris but it keeps hanging on installing the game.

If anyone has some steps from me to and get this game to launch I would greatly appreciate the help from the community. Also if someone can explain the error or needs more information I would love to hear from you.

super noob question about mf-fix

So I'm trying to run call of cthulhu and it works almost perfectly with proton-5.11-ge-3-mf except from some cutscenes, looking at protondb https://www.protondb.com/app/399810 people say that it works using "MF-fix" I thought that mf-fix was just installing the mf patch but it seems that I was wrong and I couldn't find any info, whenever I find a thread or something is someone saying "use MF fix" or "it works with mf fix" etc. So what it is the mf-fix thing? A command in the set launch options of steam? Something with winetricks? An alternative version of the mf patch?

Graphical issues/broken textures with Among Us

Hi all, making a thread as I figure this is a popular game and could help others, hoping that's ok.

When I launch Among Us (latest version as of today, "version 56" on itch) with Wine Staging 5.17 on Manjaro, it works fine except all the graphics are corrupted, i.e. all text and buttons are messed up and instead of astronauts floating around there are just polygons of glitched noise.

Does anyone know what might caused this? I have a Radeon R7 260X (AMD/ATI Bonaire XTX [Radeon R7 260X/360]) and I use the 'amdgpu' Linux driver, which is experimentally available for my card and provides Vulkan support. I also tried rebooting and using the old 'radeon' driver, which didn't change anything. I tried Windows 7, 8.1, and 10 in Wine, removing all my library overrides, and using a virtual desktop. Any and all ideas would help, thank you!

Nuc Hades and DOOM


TLDR: y is muh game not runnin?

I went full linux (just ubuntu) few years ago, mostly due to it being necessity for work (robotics). I got myself a nice Intel NUC Hades Canyon 8thGen i7-8809G with a vega gpu. I was rubbing my hands and thinking that this will do well to run my fancy shmancy visualisers/simulations, but also... if i find some time, i'll be able to play some games...

Recently I tried to up my game and downloaded something released after 2015. It was DOOM (2016), I ran it on steam via proton etc. And It was absolutely unplayable... I was getting 20 fps on low settings and very low resolution"

Now granted, my serious gaming days are behind me and I have not kept up with the newest gaming pc requirements. But Hades Canyon is suppose to be "VR - ready", which, from my understanding means - can run 2x displays at 2K+ res and decent settings.

Am I mistaken about my performance expectations of my little nuc?

Or is it that I'm trying to run a windows game on linux and that is what is causing the issue?

Bad performance using minecraft shaders with gtx 1060 arch linux

After watching some fps tests on youtube I realize there is an issue with my gpu performance in this game.

Running with no shaders and a light texture pack gives me no issues. However when using even sildurs lite shaders my frames tank to 40-50 fps when it should be around 100+ at the least. My gpu usage is also low usually less than 30%. I haven't had any performance issues on other intensive games like Dark souls 3 or Fallout 4/Skyrim.

I would really appreciate any help or suggestions and can provide more info if needed, thanks.

New Ryzen 3600x rig: 5700XT or 2070 Super? With a small twist

The twist is: through a series of freak accidents, I already have both cards, just no computer to put them in yet. So price is not a factor, only compatibility and ease of use with Linux for gaming, and the hardware itself.

Ive used NVIDIA with Linux in the past(think 8-10 years ago), but upgrading was really annoying, and at the time AMD Linux drivers were the literal biggest joke in the world.

Times have changed, and AMD has a great open source driver in the kernel, while NVIDIA pursues the same strategy as always.

Which is easier to manage overall? Ive read some complaints about how to manage AMD driver versions and related issues given that its tied more directly to the kernel, but recompiling kernel modules for NVIDIA when the kernel changes was daily life, at least last I looked.

Management aside, my understanding is the 2070 Super is substantially more powerful and stable than the 5700XT, but Im not sure if that was a Windows specific viewpoint(I know AMD Windows drivers are still nightmarish).

Thanks in advance, apologies if this is super redundant.

Need to assign custom action to mouse5 button, cant find any software to do it with.

Hello, using Windows all my life and hating it, I loaded Manjaro linux distribution to my side drive a few days ago to see if it's usable for gaming and productivity at all. After falling in love with it i installed all the software i needed without many problems, and for the software i couldn't find i found decent enough alternatives. The one program i can't find an alternative to is X-mouse button recorder. I need a macro that keeps pressing mouse2 every 120miliseconds when i hold down mouse5, none of the software that i loaded from the official package manager or got from github would let me do that, do you guys know how i could get something like that on linux? I really really don't want to have to go back to windows.

RX 5700 XT + R7 3700x -> having second boot linux / VM for minecraft JAVA?


How much preformance gain is expected if running minecraft java in linux compared to windows with amd hardware? Read that they are shit at OPENGL on windows.

I am currently playing with sues renewed on 12 render distance at amplified and i am having 50 (lows) to 70(avg) fps. It's playable for sure but if i could increase the fps by like 10 fps it would be alot better cause then i could just run Vsync on it without having small stutters when it drops.

Would such an increase be possible? Also would i need a seperate boot or could i force gpu through VM?

Thanks :)

Some questions about VFIO

Hello everyone

I hope you're all alright

A few days ago, I learnt about VFIO because I wanted to create a windows 10 VM for gaming(mostly because of fall guys )

I have a laptop which has 2 gpus (nvidia gtx1050 and amd which I'm not aware of the model), 8gb of RAM, and 512gb of ssd, also It's running manjaro linux

I've watched some tutorials on how to make it work

Now I have some questions:

  1. Is 8gbs of RAM enough for this process?

  2. If I pass nvidia gpu to VM, can I use that again on my host machine?

  3. Because I don't play much I wonder which of windows 8 or 10 would be better and lighter?

  4. As I said, my laptop has 2 gpus, so I use this script to make the switch. Won't VFIO disrupt it?

I appreciate your help in advance :)

Are wine developers working with the leaked Windows xp code?

The Windows xp code got leaked some time ago, will wine developers be able to create perfect wine compatibility for games with that code?

Anybody know how to enable vulkan in gzdoom?

I've built the latest gzdoom on my raspberry pi 4, and want to try running it with the new vulkan support for the pi. I've tried setting vid_backend to 0 in the config file and passing it my DOOM2.WAD but an error pops up saying I need at least opengl 3.3. same as when I try to start it normally. So how do I make the game start up in vulkan instead of opengl?

Thinking about switching to Ubuntu from Manjaro - I have some questions / concerns

I've been using Linux since June as a replacement for Windows. I chose Manjaro because the two recommended distros I kept hearing were Pop_OS! and Manjaro, and I preferred how Manjaro looked. It's been great so far, I haven't ran into any major issues. However, I'm thinking about switching because of all the negative things I've heard about the Manjaro dev team. I also like the prospect of having access to more support on Ubuntu, because I can't always find a solution with Manjaro.

Anyways, I have some questions:

First and most important to me - Mouse sensitivity. I'm a big FPS player and having a sensitivity that is 1:1 or at least close to my Windows sensitivity is extremely important. I need to be able to have 0 mouse acceleration and a similar sensitivity to 6/11 Windows. I was able to somewhat achieve this on Manjaro: I was able to disable mouse acceleration, but my sensitivity was about half of Windows, which I dealt with by doubling my mouse DPI. Is this possible on Ubuntu? I've done a bit of Googling but haven't found a clear answer.

Secondly, I'm a bit intimidated by PPAs. I like Manjaro's access to the AUR, and the integration it has with the standard software store. However, PPAs seem like a pain in the ass from what I understand. Is there a unified place to easily browse PPAs for software that's not on the default store? Finding a PPA for every single program that's not available on the store does not sound fun.

Lastly, I wanted to ask if there are any real differences between the different flavors of Ubuntu vs standard Ubuntu. I really don't like Gnome from what I've seen / tried, and which much rather use something like Xubuntu. Do updates come simultaneously with standard Ubuntu updates, or do I have to wait for the Xubuntu devs to push the update?

Running windows installed games through Linux

Alright, so here's my problem. I've got 3 drives, one with windows, another that belongs to windows I use for all my games, then one just for Linux. I'm trying to play the games off my drive where all my games are which were obviously installed through windows. I'm able to do this, but haven't found a way to that's not all fucked off and has a bunch of problems. The easiest way I found is to run my windows steam through Lutris, but the problem with that is compatibility. In order to get all games working properly I need to add individual ones to Lutris to launch with their own settings, it becomes tedious and steams GUI is all glitched out. In steam native, when it's working, all games work properly through proton and if I feel like trying to optimize a specific game better I can set launch options, it's cleaner, so I'd prefer to use it if possible.

With steam native on my Linux drive I just added my steam folder to its library...that comes with a whole hoard of problems. The first time I install steam native, every game downloads files for Vulkan/OpenGL, then after that I can launch any game and it works fine. But, if I decide to reboot my PC and open steam again, every one of my games starts validating. Then, when I try to launch a game, it's completely busted and just takes forever to try launching, then when it does it never actually opens. Then, if I dare open steam on windows, it'll download all the Vulkan/OpenGL files again on linux.

Using Arch, idk if this is related to the problem, but my fstab is written as so:

UUID=driveID /run/media/anon/storage ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.UTF-8,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0

How do you deal with UPlay in Proton?

I've just started playing AC: Odyssey which runs great on Proton and I'm loving the game.

There is a rough patch in between hitting Play on Steam and the game starting that involves UPlay doing whatever it likes. It will often sit on the Proton taskbar in the top left over the top of the game screen, this could be mostly my fault (using bspwm and using steam big picture mode). To make it worse when you close the game UPlay stays open and Steam thinks the game is still running. It's so very unnecessary.

Does anyone have any tricks or hints to minimise the impact of this intrusive bit bloat when using Proton?

Best Headset for VR W/ Proton?

I'm in the process of moving entirely over to Linux. My last holdover is VR as I use an Oculus. I tried a VFIO setup, but I wasn't happy with the results and ended up dropping it when the cost was going to go up due to the use of a USB3 hub that I'd pass through to the VM.

Instead, I want to go the path of least resistance (Aside from dual-booting), and sell my Oculus CV1 in favor of a headset with better SteamVR/Proton support. Protondb indicates to me that at least some of the headsets function under Proton.

Which should I get? Do I need the Valve Index, or will an old HTC Vive work fine?

Manjaro users really need to check out Garuda Linux

Let's face it, Manjaro has been kind of dropping the ball lately. While they're having deals with hardware manufacturers like Pine64 and Tuxedo, their community side has gone to hell in a hand basket. First, they had the whole thing with FreeOffice which was supposed to be "no big deal." Then, their old forums experienced an unspecified "technical error" and the new ones have seen the loss of the "off topic" section, a growing level of entitlement from the moderation staff, and lots of click-bait posts from the team. And now we are at the most recent situation, being the slow dissolving of the release cycle of the distro and the completely out of date wiki.

With all of this stuff in mind, where does someone who wants access to Arch Linux with more stability and ease-of-use go? Well, this is where Garuda saved me. It uses a few back-end tools like mhwd from Manjaro as well as original programs to create an incredibly simple user experience. Plus, it also has some additional performance tweaks such as using linux-zen as the kernel as well as many others. Finally, the devs seem to be really open about things and friendly on their forum.

There are a few slight caveats, such as the packages being straight from the Arch repos. However, Garuda uses BRTFS and Timeshift by default, allowing users to create and restore backups without an external device. Another minor gripe is that the devs do provide/sponsor other services, but those are only visible on the start-page in Firefox and in the welcome menu. It is important to note, however, that these are all claimed to be open-source, but I wouldn't be able to judge them myself.

In short, if Manjaro is starting to concern you, try out Garuda.

Anyone else having issues getting into uplay after os update?

I updated to popos 20.10 this morning and now uplay is stuck in offline mode when I launch it, I can try to login but then it didn't work and told me I need to go online. I tried uninstalling it from lutris and then installing it again, same issue.

CS:GO runs choppy on Pop_OS 20.10, was fine on 20.04

I have a decent laptop, but i play on (almost) lowest settings to get the best performance. Everything worked smooth as butter until I updated to Pop_OS 20.10 yesterday.

I have since installed gamemode, but that hasn't changed anything. Any clue on what's going on? Maybe someone else has the same issue on Pop / Ubuntu 20.10?

Applying the libstrangle command in Steam games

Few days ago, I got to know about libstrangle, and after building it, I was able to use the FPS limiter option in Lutris, which worked.

However, I'm not sure how to make it work in Steam. I am currently playing DeusEx: Mankind Divided. I already have a command for MangoHud (mangohud %command%) in it. Going theough the github page, I came across this command: strangle %command%. So I tried these:

For 60 FPS:
1). mangohud %command% strangle <60> %command%

2). mangohud %command% -strangle <60> %command%

3). mangohud -strangle <60> %command%

4). strangle <60> %command% mangohud %command%

And many other combinations but none of them worked. The game wouldn't even launch.

Can anyone assist with this.

Thank you.

How To Run The Outer Worlds On Linux - Steam Method

Hi everyone, as many of you may know, the Outer Worlds is now available on Steam after ending the exclusivity period with Epic.

Unfortunately it does not work with the latest version of Proton (5.13-1), as the game does not even load up.


The solution is to use GloriousEggroll's latest Proton-GE build (5.9-GE-8-ST) which does load the game as well as fix the opening cinematic, thus avoiding the use of media foundation patches which are a legal grey area.


As always I've produced a quick video on this which is designed to help new users of Linux get this game running, which you can watch below.


Bugs & Performance

In terms of bugs, the only show stopping one I've found is not to do with the game itself, but Feral Gamemode, as on my system if I use the gamemoderun %command% in the game's custom launcher option, the loads to a black screen and then hangs.

In terms of performance, with the exception of slight frame dips when loading a new area, I would say it runs in par with Windows.

As always, if you found this helpful, please check out my YouTube channel where I have more video likes this aimed at the new user of Linux, and if you like what you see, please consider subscribing.

Problem with steam games saying I need a direct 10 gpu. Intel 5100

Hey, I decided to install Ubuntu on my laptop, it has a 5100 Intel integrated card, yes I know it's not that good for gaming but it's enough for some light indie stuff I have on steam. The thing is, some games work some others gives me an error saying I don't have a direct 10 card when the same game works fine on windows, I was wondering if it's a driver problem or if there's a Intel driver different from the one Ubuntu installs.

Thanks in advance.

PSA Rocket League with Lutris/Epic Gamestore creates My Documents.winecfg &amp; breaks links

After launching Rocket league I noticed that Remnants from the Ashes stop working. When I closed Rocket league and try to open EGS again I get an error that "My documents cannot be found" . What happens is Rocket League makes a change to the folder (In my configuration - Arch linux) from /home/(user)/.wine/drive_c/users/(user)/My Documents to /home/(user/.wine/My Documents.winecfg and it breaks hard links. After renaming these "winecfg" folders to backup Remnant from the Ashes work. What sucks about this is when you delete this folder you WILL LOOSE stored data for Rocket League. I will try to post my findings to Lutris forums as well.

Project Winter finally works on Linux !

Hi everyone, as stated in the title. Project Winter is a game in which a team of survivors try to escape from a frozen hell while one or two traitors try to sabotage their attempts. It's different than Among Us in that traitors can sabotage finished tasks, plant traps etc, and the area is huge. Check it out on Steam, it's actually really good.

Well the only problem since the release was that the game uses local voice chat based on the player's position, via the Vivox client. As the token generation for accessing Vivox server was done client side, Proton clients were systematically rejected and even though they were able to play the game, voice chat was disabled, when the game relies solely on it for its social side.

So the devs opened a Linux Troubleshooting Channel on their official Discord server, where this problem was tracked down and isolated by a team of brilliant linux users (I was there but am not knowledgeable enough to do anything else than testing newfound workarounds). After discovering it and being certain that the problem lied there, we just had to wait for the devs to handle it, but they are currently preparing the console release of the game so it felt like it wouldn't come soon.

However ! This past week the devs got out of their way to put the token generation server side, improving the overall security AND permitting linux users to use their game. So here am I to spread the news, because the next Steam Sales are approaching, and devs who support Linux are of a rare kind.

TLDR game didn't work, linux users found the fix, devs corrected the error, game works flawlessly with Proton.

I'm just so sick and tired of these game developers

I mean, just look at this game:



The audacity! thinking Linux user's aren't GAMERS! I'm appalled. I'm angry

So I did what any sane person would to spite a game devoloper.

I contacted the developer through twitter and let him know how frustrated I was and told him my evil plan to ruin him. I purchased some game keys that I'll spread around the linux gaming community!!

It's easy to win, all you have to do is comment:

  • Your favorite Linux Distro
  • Favorite Game

That's it!

and as needs to be said, I'm in no way related to the developer. I'm just a Linux gamer who's fortunate enough to have found a job during this terrible pandemic and would like to give back some way.

Also created a new account because I don't want my main reddit account tied to me personally :)

Mirage Online Classic

Anyone looking to play a simple free-to-play web-based top-down 2D online role-playing game that supports and was entirely developed on Linux? Mirage Online Classic uses HTML5 and is playable on just about any platform supporting a modern web browser with or without hardware acceleration. We also have a Steam app that supports Linux, but your mileage may vary (and really it's just a bundled browser, so you might as well just use your own browser).

You can play at https://play.mirageonlineclassic.com/. Real-time and butter smooth gameplay in the browser running at 60fps (or faster if your display supports it) on even the most modest of hardware. If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them, and feedback is appreciated! You can play with a keyboard/mouse, using any xinput/dinput gamepad, or via mobile devices (though warning the touch interface is fairly clunky).

The game plays similarly to Zelda on the NES. Dungeons in Zelda are analogous to quests in Mirage Online Classic and typically have a boss and set of equipment as a reward at the end. You can start a guild and buy a guild hall to store your treasure. The game has a PvE focus, but we do offer opt-in PvP for players and guilds. Stop by and say hello and let us know what your Linux distro of choice is!

Switched to Linux so I could run my native Windows games better than Windows

No, the title isn't a joke or some overhead reference, this week I was away from home with my Thinkpad running Manjaro and realized I can do pretty much everything that I thought I couldn't do on Linux. However, this isn't what tilted me over the edge, what tilted me over the edge was remembering a game I got and loved playing until it just broke one day on my gaming pc. So I went onto ProtonDB to see how compatible it was with Linux (it's Ori and the Blind Forest incase you're wondering) and I see its platinum! Done, I'm sold. I get home today and install Manjaro onto my gaming pc (dual boot just for the 1 or 2 things I literally can only do on Windows). Long story short couple hours in, I'm loving it so far! I've had a lot of issues trying to set it up with my UEFI being a pain but otherwise, it's rock solid.

Specs for those curious: 5-2600x, GTX-1070Ti, 16GB RAM, dual-booted on an SSD.

I've still got a lot of things to try and figure out to get the majority of my programs or an alternative over on Linux but I'm sure I'll get it eventually. Prior to this I've only used linux off and on every couple of months when I actually use my laptop (especially with COVID now I'm always home with my PC).

If you have any tips on stuff I should do feel free! I'd greatly appreciated them as I'm as close to noob as it gets.

Here's to linux filled future, cheers!

Should I switch to Linux for "gaming"?

"Gaming" because I don't usually play high-end performance games, I'm only playing Genshin Impact or some Steam Games like Sonic Mania.

I have 8GB RAM, AMD FX-6300 Six-Core Processor 3.5GHz and a AMD Radeon HD 6670, so I don't even go that hard in gaming for Windows.

I just wanted to know if it'd be better for me to switch, and try a Windows VM if I need to, to play Genshin Impact for example, or I should stay in Windows.

I do use Linux, though I'm not a very experienced user. I have a VM with Kubuntu for programming for university, but that's how far I went. Though I'm willing to watch tutorials and stuff to make the switch easier.

I'm going to build a PC with a Ryzen 3 3400G, and 8GB DDR4 RAM. I'm saving money by getting Ubuntu instead of Windows because Proton is a thing. I have no dedicated GPU, only Radeon Vega 11. Will using Proton reduce my Frames by a lot, or will it be barley noticeable? Games I'm probably going to try to play: Star Wars Battlefront 2, Doom, Doom Eternal. (I am OK with 35-40 FPS minimum)

[Solution] Game find gamepad even if it's disabled in Wine Control Panel

I have dInput gamepad (8bitdo SN30 PRO xcloud edition), since it has few issues which prevents from paling with it without workarounds, Steam helps a lot, it simulates correctly gamepad (in a big picture, import layout in pc specific gamepad setting and gamepad works anywhere). So, I have virtual 2 gamepads and one real.

I had an issue in a single game - A Hat in a Time. Whatever I do, it always sees my gamepad (even if it's disabled in Wine Control Panel), so there is workaround:

  1. Install AntiMicroX
  2. press button in left down corner
  3. in new window spam any one button on gamepad
  4. when you reach end of list, just press real button which it wants
  5. Save, and open this window againe
  6. Copy text in down-left corner
  7. paste it in lutris (system options-show advanced-sdl2 gamepad)
  8. you are good

Did the Wine EAC initiative fail? Do they need help?

I heard a lot of news in June and August about u/guy1524 developing a set of patches to make EAC work on Wine. I entered the Discord channel and learnt that, among other things, guy1524 was waiting for blitzcrankbot to reverse-engineer the driver. But I haven't heard anything through any means in the last months. Even guy1524's GitHub page seems to be mostly inactive. I heard that they had encountered some sort of problem (EAC was updated and didn't work now or something). So, does it mean that development in that direction has entirely stopped? If they need help with testing or otherwise, I'm willing to lend a hand.

I've noticed that for Metro:Exodus playing with DX12 (VKD3D) my FPS are ~15 lower than on DX11 (DXVK) but the game feels much smoother on VKD3D. There are no visible fluctuations in frame time. Are DXVK/VKD3D using different Vulkan flip/present modes that may result in different Fullscreen Redirect paths in xwayland?

Same graphical settings
Vsync off
Fullscreen on

Linux Mint 19.3 + MAME .195 Questions

OK so I'm been using MAME32 Plus! Plus! 0.119 on my Windows machines for years and years. All my ROMs work great.

Since I'm slowly migrating to my Linux Mint 19.3 machine, I thought it would be fun to use MAME on it. So I used the Linux software manager to install the current MAME .195.

I must be doing something right, because some of my ROMs work just fine. But sadly, the majority do not. Like my favorite Street Fighters (3rd Strike, Alpha 3, etc.) and NEO GEO Mark Of The Wolves do NOT run on MAME .195 from the Mint Software Manager. I suspect my ROMs are too old and I need to update them.

So I figure I have two options: Find an older MAME that runs my older .119ish ROMs on Mint 19.3 OR download a whole newer set of ROMs (ugh) that work with MAME .195 from the Linux Mint software manager.

Can anyone point me to an older MAME that runs ~.119 ROM set with Linux Mint 19.3? If that's impossible, which ROM set should I seek to download for Linux Mint's MAME .195? Will a .193 ROM set work? Or something else?

Please note: I am NOT asking for ROMs here. I am only asking which ROM set works best with Linux Mint 19.3 Software Manager's MAME .195.

Thanks in advance for throwing a noob a bone here.

High latency on a Xbox One S gamepad over bluetooth

Hello everyone, I've been struggling with my gamepad since it has a too high latency while connected over bluetooth, making gaming impossible. It is a Xbox One S gamepad and sometimes it takes a few seconds to register my input.

I'm using Void Linux, XFCE, Bluez 5.55, Blueman 2.1.3, Linux Kernel 5.8.16_1, my system is up to date. My desktop does not have wi-fi boards. I have a 2.4GHz and a 5GHz wi-fi router on the other room.

I have a UGreen USB 4.0 dongle bought on AliExpress, it is sticked on the frontal USB port of my CPU. I've held some test keeping my gamepad one meter away from the dongle. I get this outputs with sudo l2ping:

So I've tried setting the gamepad bluetooth device to slave (it's currently a master) with hcitool but I keep getting a Input/Output error that makes impossible to switch roles.

This gamepad works fine over bluetooth with my windows 10 notebook, but I can't test how this dongle performes on windows since I only have linux on my desktop.

I will provide any information needed, thank you for your attention.

When you install a game via Steam, does every steam game have its own proton/wine prefix? Or will your games share a single proton/wine prefix?

Games keep opening on 2nd screen

As the title suggests. My games, when launched via Steam keep opening up on the 2nd screen.

Guild Wars 2 which is obviously independent from steam actually launches properly on the main screen.

All my games used to launch properly on the main screen but somewhere along the way it decided to start launching onto my secondary.

I've gone into the display setting in Manjaro and verified that my first monitor is primary. Ive done the same in Nvidia Server settings and both see the proper monitor as primary. I've also tried changing drivers to no avail.

Has anyone experienced this issue and fixed it?

Operating System: Manjaro Linux

Kernel: Linux 5.8.16-2-MANJARO

F3 Key on Among Us Wineskin Disables Keyboard Controls

Hey, today I was sent a couple files and a list of instructions for installing and setting up a wineskin for Among Us on catalina, so I dont have to use Bluestacks. I followed all the directions, and I got it up and running after a while. However, I found out that pressing F3 will disable keyboard input for controls and theres nothing i can do to fix it except closing the game and opening it again. (Text boxes like chat and name do accept the keyboard input though, even after pressing F3.) Is there anything I can do to fix this? switching windows is a must-have and its really annoying to need to restart the game if i want to play it again, only to press it again and need to restart again.

Desolate - No Audio/No Sounds through Proton

Hey fellow Linux gamers, I'm having a no audio/no sound issue with Desolate which is built on Unreal Engine. I've searched here for similar issues with Unreal (or Unreal based games) with no luck. I'm currently running on Pop!_OS 20.4. I already have (and setup) alsa and pulseaudio, just installed alsa-oss and osspd - no luck still. I have also tried various versions of Proton (5.9-GE-3/6/8) and no luck. I event went back to Proton 4.11-13, still no audio.

The game renders beautifully - the only issue is sound. Has anyone encountered a similar issue and solved it? Thanks!

Installed a new hdd to my build and I'm trying allocate the steam file to the hdd but don't know how to find it.

I dual boot on this new system I recently built and I had booted up with windows first to make sure everything was good and downloaded a few games on to it. Now I'm on linux mint and I'm trying to move my steam file to the hdd. The hdd is showing up in my home folder, but when I go through steam to change the install folder I can't find the hdd. Is there a command I can use to move the original steam file from home to the hdd so all the games I install will go there?

Steam games not launching

I'm not a linux-savvy person, unfortunately, but I've been trying to share my Steam library with a friend, and they are finding that supposedly linux-compatible games will install and "run", but without the game actually launching. From the point of view of the steam client, they are running, but they don't seem to actually launch. Can anyone help/point me at a fix?

Trying to run Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition on Wineskin and having issues

Downloaded Steam via Wineskin onto my Mac and it runs very well. However, when I downloaded Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition through Steam it downloaded fine but when I click "Play" Steam indicates that the game is running for about seven seconds and then nothing happens. The "Play" button eventually reappears, indicating that the game is not open at all.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this? Haven't been able to find any solutions on WineHQ just yet as the game recently came out.

Rocket League missing executable Steam Arch Linux

Hi Guys,

ive got this really strange Problem with my Rocket League on my system. As much as i know, Rocket League is not natively supporting Linux. So i activated Proton on Steam to play some games. The most of the games are working quiet fine. But Rocket League wont start at all. It says "missing executable" and i cant find an executable myself. When i deinstalled steam and used flatpak for steam, i recognized that steam lets me install Rocket League without even enabling Proton. But the executable wont be found anyway. Did anyone have the same problem?

I can't redeem my AMD Rewards code on Linux

Hey guys, i bought an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X two months ago. The 3700X is installed in my Linux rig. I tried to redeem the participation code, that the Retailer sent me via mail for my 3700X, but the AMD rewards site want, that i download and run a tool, that only available for Win10. I don't want to use Win10 again. I changed to Linux, because i had the feeling, that Win10 seems to be manipulating and controlling me.

Have you a solution for this? or should i sell the code to a person, that can redeem the code?

FOSS alternatives for Redragon software on Linux?

I made this post in another sub but worded it in a pretty confusing manner, plus I think it fits better here since it's gaming-related in a way.

I bought a keyboard/mouse kit from Redragon (Kumara K552 and Cobra M711 respectively), both have their own separate manufacturer software where you can 1) change RGB LEDs, 2) rebind keys/buttons and mouse-related options (polling rate/DPI, acceleration, etc.), and 3) create macros.

1 is solved with OpenRGB (thankfully), 2 and 3 are still a mystery to me. There's also the fact some keys/buttons have a default configuration I'm afraid of overriding and not being able to go back to (e.g. FN actions on the keyboard for cycling through LED presets/brightness/speed/direction/etc., buttons 6/7/8 on the mouse for increasing/decreasing DPI and cycling through LED presets, etc.). I know you can if using Redragon's manufacturer software, but both are Windows-only .exes, so I'm searching for FOSS alternatives that can do the same. Are there any? If not, has anyone tested running their software through WINE?

I miss the time from 2 years ago when Proton launched

Like when DXVK started to become a thing... things were exciting, then there were rumors of a Steam integration and then Proton was officially launched. It was sooo exciting. So much stuff now just worked. It was so promising and everybody was happy.

Now of course things aren't done yet with anti-cheat and other things, but things just working has kind of become a standard. The excitement of just being able to finally play many games and just testing if they worked was almost more fun than the playing the games itself.

Anybody else miss those days?

Issues with Steam Libraries on Ubuntu

I will start off with: I don't know if this is the right subreddit, if not please point me in the right direction.

I am having trouble adding new Steam libraries with hard drives I added to my system (all are exFAT drives). The are mounted at /mnt/HDD-A, /mnt/HDD-B, and /mnt/Game-SSD all of them are set to mount at boot. When trying to add a library to any of them through the Steam settings it show nothing when clicking okay. If I try doing it when installing a game it show there is 0 bytes available on the drive. (See below link for screenshots of disk mount settings and steam).

Does anyone know what the issue is here or have any recommendations?

Running non-steam games using proton + how to determine what libraries are needed for WINE other than guessing?

Does anyone use proton here for non-steam games? Proton is great but I'm not keen on steam/drm in general (I Use Gog mainly). I did use steam to get the latest proton by starting a path of exile install and just cancelling when proton downloaded. Proton 5.13 I believe? I made a proton folder in my home folder and then In .bashrc I set 'export STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH=$HOME/proton'. However the only game I actually got to run was Dishonored 1, and that was with proton 5.0 and it ran well. Trying with 5.13 complained about missing a 32 bit dll, which was strange. Maybe it needs a 32 bit prefix. Every other game I tried didn't work. So is there a definitive way to use it? A lot of the stuff about it online is kind of outdated. Also is there a way to see what overrides or libraries are needed for a particular game, or do you just have to guess?

Crashing trying to run Baldur's Gate 3

Hey, so I'm having trouble getting Baldur's Gate 3 running on Proton and was wondering if anyone ran into the same issue. Any help would be appreciated :)

I launch the game through bg3.exe and can get to the main menu, but I crash on New Game during the loading screen for whatever reason.

Renoir + nVidia MX350 on Ubuntu 20.04 (focal)

Flairing this support req., because that fits best, but for now I'd just like a discussion on if and how (well) this should even work, how to properly test if it works, and what performance difference I can expect. Experiences of people who have it working, that kind of thing.

So, I've this Asus ZenBook UM433IQ, which has a Ryzen 7 4700U w integrated Vega cores, and an nVidia MX350, and I was hoping to get Prime render offload, a.k.a. case-by-case GPU switching to work.

Installed Ubuntu 20.04.1, Ubuntu mainline kernel 5.8.16, kisak-mesa-fresh PPA (mesa for the iGPU), and graphics-drivers PPA (nvidia-drivers-450 for the dGPU; tried -440 and -455 as well).
From what I gather, that should be it, it should now be possible to switch GPU on a case-by-case basis by setting environment variables, e.g. __NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD=1 for vulkan, __NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD=1 __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=nvidia for OpenGL. There are a few more for finer control and/or hammering it home in case of particularly stubborn software, but that's the theory.
And it works, in theory.

I can run glxgears and vkcube on either card -- but glxgears' performance is much lower on nvidia.
I can run Surviving Mars, which is OpenGL, I think, on either card -- but performance is a wash (say a good 30 FPS for nvidia, and scant 30 FPS for mesa). Same for SuperTuxKart via the Phoronix test suite. 138 FPS on either.
I cannot for the live of me get any Proton games (Vulkan) onto the nVidia. They'll show up as running on it in nvidia-smi just fine, but GPU utilisation stays at 0 %, and GPU memory utilisation at 9-11 MB ... Now, running Proton games this way does have an effect on performance -- it costs 25-30 % ...

What's going on here? It's as if the GPU switching works, but the dGPU doesn't (properly), or is no improvement on the Vega.

Whats Death Stranding like on AMD recently, seeing mixed reports on ProtonDB

My specs are i5 4690k, 16gb ram and a RX 570 4gb on arch Linux

Looking through ProtonDB, the few AMD GPU reports are very mixed. Some say it works fine (Navi user), others say its a disaster (Fiji user). Has anyone tried it out with Polaris recently?

Also would the experience, if playable, even be any good with the VKD3D performance hit on a 570?

No multiplayer on THPS1+2, only singleplayer

It took a bit of messing around, but I've managed to get THPS1+2 working on Manjaro using the description here. I can now run THPS1+2, either via the Epic Games Store or via Legendary. Both will run for me, both will start THPS1+2. So far so good. But when I try to start multiplayer, the game says that I'm not signed in. I can't do anything online. Single player works about as well as I expected, but I can't get into multiplayer at all.

I used an older commit for wine-tkg, set DXVK support to fork, wine staging version to 003d5833 (both in the cfg file), added the patch files that were mentioned in the Reddit thread, and I created a WINE prefix in which I installed DXVK 1.7.2 from the github release page and installed mf-install. I also used winetricks to install arial, cjkfonts, vcrun2019, dotnet40, dotnet48, d3dcompiler_43, d3dcompiler_47, d3dx9. These are mentioned in the Lutris installer scripts. That should be everything. I will probably make an install script later. Maybe provide my compiled version for one script and add a "compile it yourself" thing in another. You may need to install some more libraries on a non-Arch based Linux before doing the whole compilation. I think Arch and derivatives get them automatically from the PKGBUILD.

Anyone got an idea for getting multiplayer working?

Lutris AMD chipset driver error crash

Hi, I'm running Lutris on my popOS distro and I have this issue that has been making gaming on it quite frustrating. From time to time, after playing for a while, my game will crash and I'll get the error BLZOWCLI00000008 saying:

Detected AMD chipset driver is older than recommended. Please consider updating to the latest chipset driver from AMDs web site.

The thing is, all my drivers and bios are up to date. This error also isn't consistent and it might happen after 2 mins of gameplay, or it might not happen after hours of gameplay. Any help is greatly appreciated!

./play.it will be at the MiniDebConf Online #2

The MiniDebConf Online #2: Gaming Edition is a Debian-centric event planned to happen on 19-22 November 2020, with a series of talks around gaming on Debian.

With the ./play.it team we submitted a talk proposal, here is said talk description:

./play.it is a libre software that automates the build of native packages for multiple distributions from DRM-free installers for commercial games. The generated packages are then installed using the standard tools provided by the distribution.

The purpose of this talk is to highlight this software that joined the Debian repositories with Debian Buster, providing a KISS tool to DRM-free game players who do not want to use one of the numerous all-in-one game clients. We probably will talk about DRM quite a bit too ;)

Our main target demographics are players, but this tool could be used by game developers too as a way to quickly generate packages for their games. Contributions to ./play.it are usually done by the players themselves, thanks to a syntax easy to grasp with no programming background.

This is probably going to be a short talk (less than 20 minutes), as I am really uncomfortable talking without an audience really in front of me, but it would have been a shame to let such a great opportunity pass on ;)

The talk should be followed by live questions, that I will try to answer to the best of my abilities of non-native English speaker.

I've been playing a lot of Titanfall 2, which requires the Origin launcher. I'm using Proton 5.0-9 and so far have had a flawless experience besides it taking a while to boot up. Today Origin required an update and since that Origin has been hanging on the "Connecting to Origin" screen, a couple of times it has gotten past that but then it's just a black screen. I've tried a couple other version of Proton (including GE fork). Has anyone else starting experiencing this or is it an issue with my machine?

i'am new to this but i might think the problem is that the crack is 32bit and the game is 64bit so when i run the game the crack wont work. Bit like i mentioned i'am still new to wine .

i tried to cut the internet connection, and tried to change wine version but none of that work.

and origin is not installed in my machine.

getting a game to use integrated gpu not working

I am using Lutris to launch ESO, but even when I set DRI_PRIME=0 or disable the option to use dedicated graphics, it still uses the dedicated graphics. I already made a post in the Lutris subreddit thingy, but no one was of any help xD I also tried to use DXVK_FILTER_DEVICE_NAME to specify the GPU, but that didn't work either. I'm pretty confused. I have a Picasso APU and a Navi14 GPU and my OS is Ubuntu 20.04 lol. Currently running Linux 5.4, but I'm literally about to install 5.9.1

ALSA - No sound.

Hi there! So, for the past few days, i decided to ditch pulseaudio, and use JACK and ALSA only.
The problem is, even though i added Audio - alsa to the registry, and configured it to the right soundcard, there is absolutely no sound; with and without JACK.
I tried this http://gamesplusone.com/alsa_to_jack.html and it also didn't work.
I am not sure how to replicate this, but i *think* that when i use ALSA through JACK, the winecfg sound test works, but still, no sound in game.

If you need more info, I am using Artix, all other ALSA applications work perfectly through JACK, I am trying to play Touhou 8, but I don't think it is the game's fault, because the other game i've tried, Among US, the same thing happens.
Thank you!

Sword Slinger is a physics-based puzzle game about slaying goblins with wits and magic! You'll construct complex behaviors out of simple parts to solve each of the 50 levels. The game is designed such that there is a huge set of valid solutions for each level.

Sword Slinger was made in the Godot engine with C#. I made it over a period of roughly 7 months. It's on sale now for $4.99 USD.

You all were exceedingly helpful in testing out the demo on your Linux machines! I appreciate everyone who played and sent me feedback.

Thanks for taking the time to check out the game! There's also a demo available if you'd want to give it a try!

All screens go black every ~10 minutes while playing Rocket League

I recently made the switch from Steam to the Epic Games Launcher for Rocket League by using lutris. Since then, I have been having an issue where all my screens go black for 5-10 seconds every 10 minutes while playing. It happens to all 3 of my screens, not just the one the game is on. The screens actually completely lose signal which is why it is so odd.

Has anyone else had this issue when using Epic Games Launcher with Lutris? Is it something with my GPU?

Ok, so I used to play the original Tomb Raider way back when, and I just bought the 3 that are on Steam, Tomb Raider (No other name), Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Is there any specific order I should play them in? Do I have to play one first so the others make sense? Is the above order the correct chronological order?

Thanks for the help!

Fossilize Replay is absolutely unacceptable

Sorry for this quick rant, but I'm using Steam daily (as most of us). Fossilize is often compiling shaders in the background, which is okay, because it doesn't usually take a lot of time. But then I closed Steam for a day (probably when Fossilize compiled some shaders in the background). Now I apparently have such a huge backlog of games that need shader compilation that Fossilize always tries to work on those tasks whenever it can and is allowed to do so in the background.

By no means do I have a low-end machine. I have 32 GB of RAM and a 12 core CPU (3900X). But still, Fossilize maybe utilizes 6 threads at 100% and eats up like 24 GB of RAM while compiling shaders for Monster Hunter World. I have vm.swappiness set to 10, but still, at 24 GB of RAM utilization my system puts another 4 GB onto my 8GB Swap partition. Whenever this happens, my system becomes absolutely unusable until I either wait for a long time (I have no time for that) or until I kill Steam or Fossilize directly.

So why is Fossilize unacceptable in its current state? I think that the user should be able to set some kind of RAM limit and Fossilize should either utilize like 80% of available threads to get this shit done ASAP or let the user customize the number of threads it will use up until like 24 threads in my case, depending on the CPU. It is not acceptable that this program makes my system unusable while running in the background. This is why I have disabled this just now. Why doesn't it just use most available threads and get this over with? Why does it have to take so much longer, because it only uses like 6 out of my 24 threads when running in the background, even if the absurd RAM consumption is the much worse part about this. What do you guys think?

Nvidia Driver makes everything unstable

Hey all, as you can see from my history, I've been trying for days to get a stable linux system up and running. I really love the idea of running linux so I've been trying really hard to make it my daily driver, but I 've been having problems with well, drivers.

Pop OS seems to be the most stable, but I get SIGSEGV (segmentation fault) errors when I run ANY browser, regardless of hardware acceleration being off or on. In Manjaro (which I kind of prefer) this also manifests in the machine doing general hardware failure type things. Apps crashing, machine locking up, etc. It happens most often while watching youtube videos, but it also crashes tabs on other sites.

Everything else works fine, I've tested all my RAM with memtest, then physically removed each stick and the problem persists. I've checked that the hard drive works, it passes badblocks.

I have a 1070ti, which is quite an old card by now, so maybe the newer drivers don't work on older hardware? I dunno.

Also I can't seem to install a legacy version of the driver, if I do, it just automatically puts 455 on there, even when I type in 440 manually.

Incoming: Cyberpunk 2077 Question

So the other day I was watching the trailers for the weapons and the cars that are going to be in Cyberpunk 2077 when I noticed that Stadia was included on the platforms at the end when it shows all supported platforms.

Since Stadia is Linux based does this mean we can be confident that it will run on Linux OOTB on launch day? I know for a fact The Witcher 3 runs perfectly on Linux and being the same developer (being they appear more consumer friendly that most developers these days) it seems as if it would be a pretty safe bet that we'll see the game on Linux.

I'm making a hacking game, can you advise me some sources/websites about it?

Hello everyone,

My name is Ben, I'm a new indie game developer making games under the name Cold Coffee Studio since 6 months. I released a couple of games on PC/Mac/Linux and just started a prototype for a hacking game.

I'm looking for people or "sources" (websites, documents, YT videos...) accurate about the subject but not too technical. I don't plan to make a simulation but I don't want to make it look like NCIS hacking.

Thank you

call of duty WaW installing mods - help

Call of duty world at war runs amazingly well on linux but trying to get mods to work is not working, so far I have found out that mods arent installed in the directory of the steam folder, instead they are installed at UserName/AppData/Local/Activision/CoDWaW/Mods, this has told me that I need to go into the "steam proton game id prefix" and add the mods folder my self but the problem is the mod installer doesnt actually install anything or any file that I can find on my system, since maybe its using wine to install the files it, installs it into the wine folder nope nothing there, so I would love a helping hand on this unqiue situation, thank you!

So if falls guys runs on Unity why not just port the game to Linux.

Its probally a one hour project since you just export the current unity project to Linux. Its as easy as exporting against the Switch SDK and hell the Xbox SDK is virtually identical to the Windows SDK. Like I just want to run Fall Guys on my PC of choice and not have to go to Billy Gatie OS.

Xbox Elite Series 2 locking up after a bit of play time...

So I grabbed an Xbox Elite Series 2 controller and i kinda like it, but it's been locking up after some time of playing. The behavior is the controller freezes up (no inputs registered) and the last directional input i gave it keeps holding. If i look at it in a calibration tool it shows the analog stick stuck at a certain value and no button presses register at all. The game continues as normal and i can exit out if i use keyboard controls.

This doesn't seem to happen if i'm not in game and it might be associated just with analog stick inputs (like if i'm using the dpad maybe it doesn't happen?) but other than that it's just anywhere between 5 and like 30 minutes up to maybe an hour? Then it locks up.

I've replicated the issue on two different computers, a desktop and a laptop, both with Fedora 32 installed. I tried a third laptop with Windows and i never had the issue happen there, but it's possible i just got super unlucky and it didn't reproduce in the course of my test? I updated the firmware and the Xbox accessories utility reports the controller is up to date.

I've tried both the xpadneo driver and the xow driver, plus both at once. I haven't actually tried using without them but the controller doesn't seem to get recognized by itself. I also tried multiple games--i've been playing Trials of Mana, but also tried Hyper Light Drifter and Streets of Rage 4 and have seen the issue in both of those.

That said, i haven't seen any other reports of this in a bit of googling and searching reddit and stuff? So i'm hoping this isn't like... just an issue with the controller in Linux? But i dunno what would be going on with it. Is there some way to reset the controller's hardware? Maybe it's just confused.

Anyway, if anyone has some suggestions i'd appreciate it!

Help getting more fps in CS:GO

Now to be honest i have a pretty old system (cpu: i7-950 @3.06GHz, 12 gb ddr3 ram, rx 580 8gb), but I am seeing all of these amazing linux beats windows in gaming videos and articles, and the game that is focused most on is usually csgo. I had around 120fps in Windows and now on linux i cant get above 70fps of nearly identical graphics settings. What am I doing wrong? If anyone knows how I can get at least my previous windows fps please let me know.

Help needed, game won't launch after doing protontricks


I was trying to get No Man's Sky multiplayer to work by installing dotnet40 with protontricks. The installer took so long that I cancelled the installation by doing CTRL+C in the terminal. Big fucking mistake. Now the game won't launch at all. Things I've tried:

  1. Change proton version (resulted in a windows-like popup error complaining about some .dll)
  2. After this I uninstalled the game from steam and downloaded and it again. Now the game instantly crashes.
  3. After reinstallation I tried changing proton versions. Results in same instacrash.

As you guys can tell I'm not an expert when it comes to these tools. I would like to do a complete start-from-scratch for my No Man's Sky installation. Steam reinstallation was not apparently able to do that. Do you guys have any ideas?

Edit: Also, what kind of logs can I provide/inspect to troubleshoot this?

No sound (and other shenanigans)

Hello, I have been trying to set up wine for days now and quite frankly it's been a huge pain in the ass. My experience with linux is not that good and after countless searches and false solutions I'm finally asking for help. Keep in mind I don't use steam/proton/lutris, only wine 5.19.


  1. No sound. Despite the sound test in winecfg working, there is simply no sound in any game whatsoever. I'm guessing it's a directsound issue.
  2. Hyperventilation. The fan goes bonkers any time a game is launched, including 20 year old games with primitive graphics. I'm guessing everything is running on the CPU and DirectX is not used, despite being installed.
  3. Misc errors. May or may not be relevant, but every time winecfg is run from the terminal, a slew of errors appear and they're all saying xxxx:err:rpc:rpcrt4_ncacn_np_handoff Failed to retrieve the computer name, error 2 where xxxx is a hex number.
  4. Non-working 32-bit prefix. Not that big of a deal since I can run 32-bit programs in a 64-bit prefix just fine, but thought I'd mention it regardless. Any time I set up a 32-bit prefix, all windows are either invisible or 1x1. Running anything produces an error window, which of course cannot be read due to the aforementioned reason. Running a simple program like Paint produces a visible, small, empty window.

What I tried

  1. Installing DirectX 9 using this ancient guide and an old redistributable DirectX setup. Setup completes without errors but the problems persist.
  2. Installing DirectX 9+10+11 using winetricks by selecting the appropriate DLLs. Everything installs fine, but the problems persist.
  3. Installing DXVK by following the guide on the github repo. Installs fine but the problems persist AND games like Among Us now spit a DirectX 11 error instead of simply launching in software mode (?) as they did before.
  4. Checking sound=alsa in the winetricks gui, the problems persist and the checkbox gets unchecked at the next launch of winetricks.
  5. Adding native DLL overrides for all x3daudio1_* and xaudio2_* where * is a number (I added a separate rule for every number). The problems persist.

Any help would be appreciated folks.

What is your go to distro for gaming from a compatibility view?

I have dabbled in various releases since making the full switch from windows a few years ago. Was running kubuntu 18.04 and currently running kubuntu 20.04 with the latest kernel 5.9. Tried Manjaro about a year ago. Have a few VM running mint. I really like the KDE dwm.

I have an amd r7 2700x, 32gb of ram and an amd 5700xt.

I wanted to like Manjaro/Arch, but just kept running into so many issues running even native Linux games. Always had missing dependancies or other issues. Now with 20.04 and the latest kernel I am back to running into issues and really tempted to go back to 18.04.

This wasn't meant to be a help thread. I am generally OK with finding the problem due to plenty of posts on various sites.

That said, what has been everyone's most compatible distro when it comes to gaming? That can be native, proton on steam, lutris for gog installs, etc.. I am just trying to get some perspective here.

FFXIV in Proton/Wine - invalid license?

When I try to install and use the FFXIV launcher (from the website, non-steam) in Proton and regular Wine, after logging in it says "This service account does not have a valid FINAL FANTASY XIV license for this platform or your subscription has expired.". My license (non-steam) is valid - the game runs fine in Windows with the same credentials. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

wine-5.19 staging, proton 5.13, arch linux 5.9.1

Here is the command output if that helps (wine). I start the launcher, enter my login info, press enter and the license text appears. There are two lines that repeat endlessly, but I believe this is the part where I press enter after entering my login (without repeating output):

World of Warcraft issues after Manjaro update

Anyone else playing World of Warcraft (retail) on Manjaro? I just got the latest updates but I'm still running 5.8 and 440 but now WoW is crashing just after battle.net starts up - which is odd as I'm not using the new kernel or drivers =/

I had to install wine-staging for retail to work at all, and switching to wine regular didn't help either.

Not a huge deal as I'll just boot into Windows if it's a problem for now, just wondered if there's any easy fix.

WoW Keyboard Movement Issue After Patch

Im back playing WoW retail on my Dell laptop , amd64, only now using Ubuntu 20.04 along with Liquorix Kernel and Wine Staging v5.19 (Gamemode and E-Sync are ON ). I use a Bluetooth mouse and all my drivers are up to date.

Ive installed the game a few weeks ago before the pre-Shadowlands patches and it was running smoothly with no issues at all. After two to three heavy patches since the last 13th, changing the games appearance including characters customization and all, Ive started having this weird movement problem.

By using AWSD or arrow keys on my laptop keyboard, the character keeps running even after releasing the key and simply wont stop for many seconds after . Meanwhile, ESC or jumping doesnt work, or any other shortcuts to help stop it. Seems to be directly related to the mouse camera movement.

Ive researched for a solution and came across some tweaks listed bellow but none worked for me

  • Change Wine version : the only one working right now is Staging 5.19, preventing the game from crashing;
  • Repair and Full Re-installation : deleted folders and downloaded from Lutris, didnt work
  • Rename WTF, Config and other folders ;
  • Using in-game the command /script SetCVar(rawMouseEnable, 1);
  • Using the command /console RawMouseEnable 1 (also 0 value);
  • Enable Lock Cursor to Window in-game ;
  • Turning on the option Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows in Winecfg

Ive tried running WoW with the Battle.net app and directly from the .exe file - both using Lutris. Nothing.

This never happened before and my laptop keyboard is working just fine. Other games on Lutris via Wine are also working without problems.

Does anyone have any ideas? Maybe could be the Liquorix Kernel for some reason? Maybe a conflict between the new patches and Wine Staging 5.19 ?

Any help would be very much appreciated!


PS. Ive noticed a folder on my /home/ directory called GPUCache that apparently was created by WoW. Unaware of it, I have deleted the folder. Now I notice some additional lag loading the character selection screen and when entering the world. Could this be related? Is there a way to recover it if it is necessary?

Weird artifacts from SSAO in WOW SL.

Howdy, I've playing world of warcraft through lutris and the game runs fine, probably a 10% difference from running it native.

The only issues I've encountered are random black screens, like it would do on windows when the video driver stops responding, takes 3-5 seconds for the image to come back, no crashes and happen very rarely, I've had 2 in 10 hours of playtime and the second one are some weird repeating patterns from SSAO. They go away when I disable it. It's not really a game breaker, but I was wondering if anyone was able to fix this.

"Winebrowser" keeps being the default app for some software, even though i uninstalled wine.

(I use arch kde) A couple days ago i installed wine and thought id give it a try. Though unfortunately nothing seemed to work right, so i uninstalled it. Then i noticed that when i try to click on some software, or even links, it tries to open it in something called "winebrowser". For example, last time it popped up was when i try to click on a link on discord. It would load for a couple seconds, but then would stop. Presumably because wine is uninstalled. I tried looking for an application by that name and tried looking for a file called that, but i cant find it anywhere. I even deleted the .wine file. Any advice on how to get rid of it?

If none of your games work with Proton 5.13, check your XAUTHORITY file location

To clean up my home directory, I have had $XAUTHORITY exported as "/run/user/1000/Xauthority". As a result, none of my games worked with Proton 5.13. After commenting out the line in my dotfiles that changes this environment variable, my games were able to work in 5.13.

Help putting together my first linux machine

Hey guys, just looking for a bunch of advice around the many aspects of getting something like this working well for me.

As with many of you, all this exciting new hardware has convinced me to put together a new system. As a developer I have used linux before, but only ever through servers or on machines that aren't mine. I'd like my new setup to be primarily linux, however due to a few key programs I will also have windows as well.

First, about the OS, I have been looking around and manjaro and pop!_os seem to be the distros targeted for someone like me. I'll be using this computer for gaming and development, and it seems like either of these distros will do the job but I'm wondering which one (or other ones) would be better. Also, if I don't like the distro I'm on, how difficult is it to switch them while keeping the rest of my files and such intact?

about dual booting the OS's, is it a better idea to get 2 drives for each OS, or is there not much of a difference having both on the same drive? would things like GRUB work if they are on seperate drives?

Also on the hardware side, I'm going to do my best to get a hold of the new 3080 and ryzen 3900x. I assume that with any brand new hardware there will be issues to iron out after release, but for the motherboard I am eyeballing, it lists the driver OS as windows only, but will this work if I have both linux and windows?

Finally, I am very interested in all of the customization in terms of the looks of the system, and was wondering how difficult it is to replace the default window manager/ GUI with a new one.

Sorry for all the questions and the long post, but any advice would be really appreciated and I hope I can join the club and convert some of my friends once I'm more experienced in linux.

ge-install-manager 0.7.6 ALPHA (proton-ge-custom installation manager script)

ge-install-manager 0.7.6 ALPHA

The quick pitch:

GloriousEggroll proton-ge-custom installation manager. Install any release version, check for the latest release, verify that an installation is not corrupt, and probably much more than you ever wanted.

Inspired by scripts such as:





Near the beginning of this year I decided that I wanted to learn shell scripting (Bash and POSIX.1-2017 IEEE Std 1003.1-2017). One of the many projects that spawned from that desire is the one that I am sharing with you today. While the project initially started as POSIX sh compatible it wasn't long before I switched the entire script to Bash simply because I am lazy. To balance out the potential loss of compatibility I put forth a significant effort to not use Bash features that require Bash > 3.2 (so that OS X/MacOS users who haven't upgraded their Bash can still use the script).

The "problem" was simple. I wanted to automate all the different things that I might do to any one proton-ge-custom installation on any one computer that I use/manage. Over the past few months the script has slowly evolved into what it is today and development continues.

Some of the milestones that have been achieved:

  • Download, verify, and install the latest proton-ge-custom release (ge-install-manager -U).
  • List all installed proton-ge-custom versions, saved packages, and check saved package sizes to determine if any installed release received backports (ge-install-manager -l).
  • Verify one/all proton-ge-custom installations using the files in the saved package(s) (ge-install-manager -v|-V).
  • Print all proton-ge-custom releases available to install using different formats depending on the available screen size (ge-install-manager -L).
  • Print release notes for one/all proton-ge-custom version(s) (ge-install-manager -n|-N).
  • Print disk usage for one/all installed proton-ge-custom versions and saved packages (ge-install-manager -s|-S).
  • Use "proper" return values and handle signals gracefully throughout the entire script.
  • Use consistent and legible formatting and structure.
  • Implement a thorough (optional) verbose reporting system that can be used for a variety of reasons including learning how the script works, diagnosing issues, and performing optimizations (add -z to any/no command).

If you would like to know more about the script, how to use it, or what it is capable of please peruse the README on Github. If you can, please report any issues that you encounter using Github issues. Otherwise, simply reply to this post or send me a message here.

Ampersat, a classic style RPG is releasing early next year on Linux

I'm working on Ampersat, a classic inspired RPG that plays similar to Smash TV and Gauntlet.

All the language and letters of the game have become corrupt. You'll need to venture into the 12 different towers and dungeons to help rid the world (and letters) of this corruption. Defeating a letter will unlock it in the text of the game, allowing you to piece together the story bit-by-bit.

There is a village 'hub-world' where you can upgrade weapons, learn new spells, and upgrade your Ampersat.

Ampersat is releasing on Steam (PC, Mac & Linux), PS4, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch on the 6th February 2021. You can play the demo now through the Steam link below.

MSFS 2020 running almost ootb with the latest steam proton update


Just wanted to let everyone know that MSFS 2020 runs basically ootb with the latest proton update (5.13-1). The only change you need to make is adding "-FastLaunch" to the launch options (right-click title->Properties->Set Launch Options).

I'm running a 3600 with 16gb of ram and an rtx 2600 gpu, and haven't run into too many issues, besides a couple crashes which were fixed by creating a swap file. Performance seems to be slightly worse than when I was running it on my windows partition.

I spent 2 days installing a 31GB game because my internet is very bad and I realized that I've installed the native version which doesn't work well. I want to enable Proton but Steam wants me to reinstall the game.

My ideas would be downloading the Proton binaries and replacing the native Linux ones with Proton

World of Warcraft Shadowlands pre-patch Access Violation with Latest NVIDIA driver

So, the latest WoW patch broke my wine installation. I haven't found anyone else talking about this. Booting into the game crashes at the first cutscene with an "ACCESS_VIOLATION" error.

I switched to my Windows installation, and booted it up. Same error! With Windows, I quickly updated to the latest NVidia driver (456.71) and I was able to boot into the game.

I went back to my Kubuntu installation, and confirmed that I only have driver version 450.80, which was the latest package manager installation. I uninstalled all of my NVIDIA packages, reinstalled kubuntu-desktop, and then manually installed version 455.28. I assume this is a beta driver as it has the label "SLB." Booted up lutris, booted up World of Warcraft...No dice. I was met with another ACCESS_VIOLATION.

Am I the only one experiencing this issue? Did the latest patch break WoW for anyone else?

Is there a workaround yet, or do we just need to wait for the Linux drivers to catch up a bit for NVIDIA?

Alt + Tab = mouse lag

I recently installed Linux Mint 20.04 with a new 5600xt. I've been using linux mint for awhile, but i cant figure out how to fix this. When ever I'm in a game fullscreen and I alt + tab out and back in, I get a weird mouse lag. It actually causes the game itself to drop in fps and lag. restarting cinnamon doesn't fix it. so far, logging off and logging back in is the only way besides rebooting i found that fixes it.

Has anyone had this issue before?

What's the Best Bluetooth Headset for Linux Gaming?

I purchased a Logitech G533 and it's terrible in Linux (and the mic already broke on it after a week). Can you guys recommend a good gaming headset that works well under Linux? I'm trying to find something under $150 and I would like it to be wireless. Thanks for any info!!

Fallout 76 Atomic Shop Fix (Steam/Proton/Lutris)

Hello All,

While debugging a mod manager install, I tripped over a solution to the 'free' bug in the Atomic Shop.

*WARNING* this 'fix' for Fallout76 WILL BREAK loging in through the BethesdaNet launcher! You can bypass logging in through the launcher all together by adding a few lines to your Fallout76Custom.ini file. As noted in this thread.





To fix the 'free' tag on all atomic shop items, one needs to obtain the following DLL files from a windows install (I used win10).


Get both 32 and 64 bit versions. I suspect you only need 64bit since FO76 is 64bit, but having the 32bit version won't hurt anything.

Place the 64bit versions in the prefix/drive_c/windows/system32 folder, and the 32bit in the prefix/drive_c/windows/syswow64 folder.

You will then need to add DLL overrides with winecfg, setting both files to native only.

Once done, launch the game to verify you now can view the correct atomic shop pricing.

Discord: Browser vs App?

I've recently installed Linux Mint on my laptop, just for shits and giggles. Tried L4D2 and CSGO so far.

In the case for Discord, is it better to install the app or use it in the browser? From what I've read somewhere, the app is just a Chromium package or something like that? I use Firefox as my default browser, if that makes a difference.

How to get modded games to run? (Sonic CD)

I've been trying to use the Sonic CD Mod Loader, via the wineprefix used by protontricks to install directx (essential for scd to work), but I didn't had any good results (the game still runs tho).

Anyone knows how am I supposed to apply mods?

X-Wing Alliance doesn't recognise joystick

I have a Logitech Attack 3 joystick and I can't get it to work with X-Wing Alliance (GOG version).

Running Pop!_OS 20.04, the joystick is listed in lsusb and I can use it fine with Dosbox. I also see it when running wine control.

I'm launching XWA via Gamehub, tried using Proton or Wine options but it doesn't make a difference. The game starts, but moving the joystick does nothing.

Is there some wine setting or something else I'm missing?

Make Steam use Graphics Card


I am running Ubuntu and having fun playing quite a few games, but some really could tun smoother if they would use my Nvidia graphics card instead of the Intel Graphics. This worked on Minecraft because I can just click on "launch with dedicated graphics card". But if I want to do the same with a Game on Steam, how can I do that? Sorry if someone already asked this question...

Non steam games on GamerOS?

Has anyone used GamerOS I'm building a couch gaming rig and was looking at GamerOS. However I have a few games in GOG, Origin, and Bethesda.net that would work with proton. I'm wondering if there's a way to add these games in GamerOS (even if it takes using the terminal), because it seems sorta locked down to Steam games and emulators.

Also would I be able to do things like connect bluetooth and play dvds. It doesn't seem like you can easily leave Steam.

I'm not able to log in into blizzard games or battle.net since recently. No useful logs.

So here's the problem: WoW.exe and battle.net.exe work perfectly fine unless I log in. I've tried downloading games, etc. - all works. But as soon as I click "go online" and input my data, following happens:

1) battle.net - simply crashes with "this application encountered unexpected error"

2) wow - freezes (process listed as "defunct" in ps ax)

When I run wine through terminal, nothing useful is printed (there's no wine error messages or anything).

I'm using wine 5.7 from Lutris, although I've tried other versions provided by lutris, no luck.

any idea whats up with that?

Civilization VI nVidia problem on Ubuntu 20.04

Googling didn't help me, so probably here I will find an answer. I have an ASUS motherboard with onboard Intel video and nVidia GTX 1050 Ti card. When i'm starting Civilization 6 from Steam, it seems starts with my Intel card (despite it's said that Intel is not supported, but anyway). But I want to use my nVidia card. After failed attempts to make it see my nVidia card, I even disabled my Intel onborad video, because i was thinking it somehow supersede the nVidia. But, you wish... now Civ6 starts in small window mode and shows Unknown Device as video device. Here is what I have in lspci: ```

Microstutter in every game - sync related?

Regardless of the game I'm playing, I seem to be getting very bad perceived performance even though the frame rate is at a solid 60 and the system isn't under load at all.

This is due to microstutter especially when there is some type of scrolling motion, so it's especially bad for anything with a top-down view like strategy games. Since I play Factorio and Rimworld the most, that's very unpleasant.

I noticed that when I disable Force Composition Pipeline, there is tearing that seems to flicker back and forth at possibly the same rate as I'm getting stuttering with it on. In the game where I'm currently having the issue and tested with various settings (Kubifaktorium), this tearing is present even with Vsync on in the driver. (No in-game setting for it.) When using a tearing test video with mpv (OpenGL) and Force Composition Pipeline off, it even seems like the Vsync setting has absolutely no effect - I'm getting intermittent tearing with or without it. When I don't, I'm also seeing what I would interpret as the same kind of stutter.

Note that when there is no scrolling motion, everything is smooth so this is not actually a performance issue.

I don't know enough about graphic stacks to diagnose or even really investigate this. All performance settings you commonly see mentioned in threads about bad performance are at maximum, of course, but with zero effect.

I don't have a Windows install at hand to easily compare this, but when I last had one for VR, the performance was leaps and bounds better than on Linux. (1/5th frame time, roughly.) That is also apparently very unusual and might help as information. Looking at the frame graphs, is seemed like there was a source of Vsync on Linux that I couldn't deactivate - in many games, the minimum was at a point that roughly was at a 60Hz equivalent regardless of settings.

- GTX 2080 Ti, driver 450.66
- Ryzen 9 3900X
- i3-gaps window manager with Compton, although switching the WM or killing the compositor has no effect. - Fedora 32 - Linux 5.8.6-201.fc32.x86_64

The issue has been present since I got this system which was this year in January. On my last one, I don't remember such issues despite using an Nvidia card as well.

Can someone help me out here? I know that the description of the issue isn't exactly ideal but it has me quite confused.

Half-Life: Absolute Zero ceased development; final version is natively playable on Linux


Half-Life: Absolute Zero is open source re-imagining of Half-Life alpha/beta shown in E3 in 1997/1998:



Half-Life: Absolute Zero has ceased development, after almost a decade worth of development.


Playing on Linux:

Although the mod is available only for Windows on Steam and it works okay via Proton on Linux, it will soon be delisted which will require additional steps to be able to play it. Besides, it is much better to have it running natively on Linux. For that Xash3D FWGS is a great Free engine reimplementation to run Half-Life and its mods.


1) Install Half-Life and download/extract Half-Life: Absolute Zero

2) Download and extract xash3d_fwgs_linux_0.19.2.tar.xz (recent Xash3D FWGS 0.20 doesn't run the mod.)

3) Copy ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Half-Life/valve of Half-Life and AbsoluteZero folder of the mod into Xash3D FWGS's directory.

4) Copy ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Half-Life/valve/cl_dlls/client.so into /AbsoluteZero/cl_dlls

5) Launch the game with following command:

LC_ALL=C ./xash3d.sh -game AbsoluteZero -dll dlls/az.dll -clientlib cl_dlls/client.so

6) If some NPCs' skins are robot skins, disable German censorship in /AbsoluteZero/config.cfg

PSA: Some games crash with Linux 5.9 and amdgpu

Hi all, recently I encountered a crash with Dirt Rally on Linux 5.9 stemming from amdgpu kernel driver, which I did not encounter before. There might be issues with other games as well, but I did not notice. Crash seems to be fixed with amd's drm-next branch, so I believe that the regression was caught. If you experience crashes in random games and see a kernel backtrace in your system logs coming from amdgpu module, please be sure to use an older kernel.

Ubuntu 20.04 on Razer Blade Stealth Late 2019

Hello everyone, I am VERY new to Linux gaming in general (been a long time windows user) but have a fair amount of PC knowledge going into this. I decided to give Ubuntu a try the other day (more or less just out of curiosity)

I started by downloading the Latest Ubuntu install files, making a bootable drive, creating a partition on my SSD, and install along side Windows 10 (2004)

Install was painless, and figuring out the UI was fairly simple.

After install and updates, I chose to follow this post - here
I did all the steps (aside from installing the latest kernel)

Switched my settings in Nvidia X Server to "Best Performance" settings (override and turn off AA, turn off AF, maximum performance)

Installed DooM 2016 off steam (I DID NOT USE WINE) with the linux edition of steam.

This game has been known to have issues staying above 60fps at any settings (even with vulkan) because of the power limit throttling on this laptop while using WIN10.

While playing in UBUNTU, I was able to play ultra settings, 1920x1080 with 120fov, and max AA with an amazing framerate of 75-110FPS with Vulkan

This was a VERY big surprise for me concidering this laptop is NOT overly powerful (i7-1065g7, 16gb ddr4, gtx 1650max-q) can anyone explain why?

Nvidia vs AMD GPU?

Looking at my new pc build. I want it to be a linux based machine. Although I see plenty of benchmarks and comparisons of Nvidia and AMD gpu's on windows, I see little on how they compare on linux, but I've heard nothing but horror stories about issues with drivers.

So give it to me straight, drivers wise and performance wise, what gpu's perform better on linux? Nvidia or AMD?

Is there any advantage to using SteamOS, or any other distro for that matter, for playing Steam games?

If you have issues upgrading to 5.9 on Nvidia, try this.

People report that Nvidia's drivers work with 5.9 however when I attempted to upgrade, DKMS failed and I was left in console mode on reboot. It may have been because of me putting off updates for weeks or using nvidia-all but regardless, I seemed to have fixed it by installing a different Nvidia driver version(Vulkan beta) from nvidia-all from a TTY console. If you have issues, try doing that.

(not responsible for any damages, yada yada yada)

I also used downgrade to downgrade to Linux 5.4(newest from downgrade) but that probably wasn't what fixed it.

Hope it helps.

Red Dead Online

As some may know, there has been an experimental Proton build by Brendan Shanks for a number of months that had Red Dead Redemption 2 working, with some quirks. Most notably that one could not load into Online.

Now, with the recent Proton release those changes and others have made it's way into it and the game now works, with seemingly all quirks I know of fixed.

Even Online should work, and I have myself tested that and have seen other reports that they can load into Online.

However, while Online itself works, me and others have issues when other players get involved.

The tutorial/intro works, but once the game opens up and other players can join your world and missions there are connection issues. The game kicks you back to the main menu with an error.

Most of the time, simply loading into Online fails with that error but sometimes it works and you are put into free roam without any another players and things seem to work.

But as soon as you try to join something with other players or they try to join you, the error occurs.

This post is not so much about fixing the issue, that is likely best handled on GitHub, it's more about trying to figure out how many have the issue.

I have only seen reports of people with the issue, and none where this specific issue explicitly does not happen. So I'm curious as to if it works for anyone. So if you have tested Online, or can test, I'd like to know your experience.

I also saw a bunch of questions about the state of Online in the Proton release post, so this post is also intended to inform people that there still are notable issues with Online, possibly for everyone.

Periodic Slowing

I'm attempting to run Left 4 Dead 2, via Steam, on an old computer running Xubuntu 18.04.

I'm using gamemode to configure the system prior to running, and disabling compositing, which I've read is a major issue with xfce. I'm using an older PC:

CPU: AMD FX-4100, 3.6 GHz

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT

Memory: 10 GB

Everything appears to be working fine, and through lowering the required performance of the game I've managed to reduce lag, however there is consistent periodic slowing which occurs at random intervals, though particularly when an area with a large amount of lighting or fire is encountered.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to begin even troubleshooting this type of issue?

Heavily modded Fallout: New Vegas in Linux using MO2 and Lutris

Running Modded New Vegas (and other Bethesda offerings) on Linux through Lutris and MO2

I've posted several ways over the past couple of years of running Fallout: New Vegas in Linux with mods. It's a Bethesda offering, which means you pretty much need at least 'unofficial patch' mods just to get it to function normally, and get the gameplay that was intended, even on Windows. And while running vanilla New Vegas is trivial with Proton, running modded is somewhat more difficult, with most mod loaders requiring .NET 3.5 which is a royal pain to get working in a 64 bit wine bottle. I've been revising and updating my methodologies as new opportunities come up. This is my current method of getting a heavily modded instance of New Vegas running without issue (so far).


  • This particular system uses Lutris and a .yml file to do the installations for you.
  • I personally use Steam as the launcher, and the script I use expects to see it. It can still be run as an independent executable, say from GOG, but I'm not able to offer support for that option.
  • This *should* be fairly distro-agnostic. I know it'll work on any Debian distro, but should also work on Arch and arch-based distros. Unfortunately, my distro-hopping days are largely behind me, and I've settled on Mint, which is basically Ubuntu with a coat of paint.
  • You need to actually own a copy of New Vegas.


  • First, head over to rockerbacon's MO2 script github. This will be a .yml file that will have everything you need to get going. It will download and install MO2, and associate it with whichever of Bethesda's offerings you wish. Caveats exist on the github concerning compatibility, please review the documentation there for more information.
  • Make sure to install New Vegas and run it at least once to generate the .ini files it will need before actually running the script
  • If you wish to use the 4GB Patch (Large Address Aware) for New Vegas found here, do so now. You can just run the executable through WINE, it doesn't necessarily need to be in the same wine bottle as MO2 since it changes the .exe file directly.
  • The script will install NVSE automatically, no need to install it separately
  • Run the .yml script through Lutris and follow the prompts. Should be very user-friendly.
  • Repeat as necessary for any other Bethesda offerings you own which are compatible.

I would advise against Vortex, as it needs you to disconnect from the internet to set itself up or it will automatically, without user's permission or even knowledge, update to a version which is incompatible with WINE at this time.


  • Don't use MO2 to open a browser window (including clicking on the web icon to bring up Nexus), it will freeze and crash
  • Don't run the tutorial. It will tell you to press said button that makes MO2 freeze and crash
  • For some reason, the built in fomod handler doesn't seem to work too well, especially for things like Project Nevada and other more complicated installs. You'll have to do those manually.
  • If you get a sha256sum mismatch error during installation, it means winetricks has updated, and lutris hasn't yet. Run this command:

$HOME/.local/share/lutris/runtime/winetricks/winetricks --self-update

That should do the trick. Unfortunately, that's on Lutris's side, they use their own version of winetrics, probably for dependency reasons, rather than using the system's version.


  • Since you can't open a browser with MO2 without crashing, you will have to do this manually
  • On the NexusMods website, once you've logged in, click on your icon in the top right corner of the screen, and select 'site preferences'.
  • On the 'My Nexus Account' page it should have taken you to, click on the 'API' tab on the far right
  • Scroll down to 'Mod Organizer 2' and click 'request an API key'
  • Copy the key it gives you. DO NOT SHARE IT.
  • In MO2, click the 'Configure Settings' button (looks like a wrench and a screwdriver)
  • Select the Nexus tab
  • Click 'Enter API key manually'
  • Paste API key from Nexus here


  • There's one issue that can prevent nxm files from associating properly, both the problem and solution are addressed and a workaround found in this issue report. After making the two changes here, it should work just fine. This has been flagged by the maintainer, and should be fixed upstream.
  • There's an issue where MO2 will 'forget' to associate itself when closed and reopened. You may have to manually re-associate with the API key if this occurs. See associated issue report.


Big shout-out and thanks to rockerbacon for setting up and maintaining this resource. I was groping towards something like this, but his script makes things so much easier. I'm currently running a game with PN, AWOP, EVE, and WMX all working together as the 'base' plus a ton of other mods on top, using this methodology, and it seems to be running better than I've ever personally gotten it to run before.

I hope this has been helpful for everyone in the community who enjoys this game and wants to enjoy it to its fullest potential while on Linux.

How much difference does a graphics card make?

Hello, I have a thinkpad X230 with the Intel integrated graphics, I7 four core processor at 2.9 ghz, 8 gig of ram and SSD running Ubuntu 18 LTS.

I mostly play Minecraft on an external monitor, windowed mode, and after it starts up and gets rolling I have pretty much no complaints about the performance. Aside from this I occasionally play Endless Sky and some RTS/Citybuilding games, again, with no real complaints about performance.

I've been contemplating upgrading to an actual gaming machine lately and have been looking at the Lenovo options. Most of them are pretty affordable on eBay, but before I shell out money for an updated laptop I asked myself: "Would having an actual graphics card, even a low end one, improve the performance of the games that I actually play?"

Does anyone have any insight here?

While I was bed-ridden 2 years ago, I had started prototyping this lighthearted Spelunky-esque pixel art game to distract myself. This week I launched the demo of Pyramid Plunge with native Linux support, gamepad support, and i18n. Was wondering if you could check it out and give your feedback.


I'm new to this Linux community. Last week I was contacted by Todd of LinuxGameConsortium.com and asked me if I had any intention to create a Linux version besides Windows. I told him I'll try it out and here it is thanks to GameMaker Studio 2 support. So far it was tested on Ubuntu and Pop.

A lot out there have told me to not bother about Linux users because "who cares of less than 1%" (on steam). Well, I think if I'd make even 1 player have fun and perhaps even laugh with his kids in multiplayer, then I consider it mission complete.

I'm looking forward to your feedback and any questions you got. After seeing how helpful this Linux community is, I thought I'd share my journey with you of how this game came about and do an AMA too.

Elevator Pitch:

Pyramid Plunge is a lighthearted action Spelunky-esque platformer with procedurally generated levels that offer a challenging experience every time you play. You take control of an odd cartoony couple and protect your partner from peril. Have complete freedom while you explore the fully-destructible pyramids of ancient civilizations filled with deadly creatures, booby traps and immense treasure.

You can watch a gameplay trailer on Youtube.

How it all started:

It all started a couple of years ago when I was bed-ridden while still recovering from some unknown virus a couple of years ago. I had just read a book my friend gave me about Spelunky. The book mentioned GameMaker which I had never used before. Now I had been using Unity for over 10 years and since everything was changing around me, I decided to give it a go too. I loved the new 2d game engine. It was strange and weird at first but at the end it's workflow for 2d games is smoother. After doing the usual small games like asteroids, etc to get acquainted with the game engine, I wanted to create a fun little game to distract myself a bit and keep my mind busy. The main focus of the game would be to save your partner and you could choose which character to be too. I envisaged the main action would be carrying your partner and get her to safety. But I wanted to be set in a humorous cartoon setting too so it isn't taken too seriously. I also wanted the levels to be procedurally generated.

My Kids Loved it!

After a bit more recovering, I could be back on a desk for a few minutes rather than in bed. Bit by bit (pun intended) it became a playable prototype. My twin daughters who were 7-years old at the time, came over to my desk to take a peek at what I was doing with a PS4 controller in hand connected to a macbook. To my surprise my daughters loved it! They thought I had bought it or somethin'. And they were awestruck when I told them I was making it. (The graphics were abysmal at the time). We started building the game together. They are quite creative besides being really great QA testers :) We would play daily rounds trying to beat each other's scores on Pyramid of the Day mode, where you get the same level for 24hrs and the leaderboards get cleared every day.

Multiplayer PvP Mayhem

As I was getting better, the game was getting better too. At one point the kids suggested "what if I could play it against my sister?". And after some tinkering around to create split screen version, and hooking 2 PS4 controllers to the macbook, we realised it was really great fun, even more than the single player! Apparently throwing objects in mid-air at your opponent to steal his loot (Sonic Style) is incredibly satisfying and hilarious. Chasing your opponent to steal his money or even his partner to then put her on a booby trap was now our new daily routine. Till this day, it is still a daily thing we do together - play multiplayer and forget for a moment the current world's situation.

Download demo and Wishlist on Steam

You can Download the demo from Steam.

If you could report back the FPS would be great. Just press F2 to see the FPS. (Also for those of you who stream can press F3 to show the gamepad's state on screen).

In this version you can only control Giorgio, as I'm currently working on supporting controlling Felicie. Apparently I need to do over 400 sprites... by hand! But it will be worth it as it will even more hilarious with Felicie throwing around Giorgio.

Developing with the Community - Free Early Access Keys

If you'd like to contribute in any way, I'm developing the game with the help of the community and you can closely follow the development on the game's Discord. I also post dev updates and any pixel art in progress on Discord. And we also compete on the leaderboards.

You can also sign up for updates at pyramidplunge.com, where I will be giving a couple of free early-access keys to subscribers at the end of every month.

Help on Linux Manjaro/Arch Issue?:

A community member tried it out also on a flavor of Manjaro, but it was giving a segmentation fault and I don't really know how to get started to fix such an issue. GameMaker Studio 2 say that they only support Ubuntu. Not sure if there could be some workaround. Just DM me if you have any pointers on this ... would be greatly appreciated.

Looking forward to your feedback and questions!

Battle.net app closes without an error when trying to launch it.

I'm trying to set up Starcraft 2 on my PC using Lutris and the 5.0.2 (stable) version of Wine. When launching the Starcraft_Setup exe file, it usually gets through any "updating blizzard agent" dialogs but then abruptly closes, taking the wine control panel with it. Lutris's logs say it "exited with return code 0", but I'm not sure if that helps anything.

Command to disable force full composition pipeline?

Hi, I have an Nvidia GPU and I am running Mnajaro KDE. I was having screen tearing issues but Force full composition pipeline completely fixes it. However, it is not at all pleasant for gaming, just for general use as when I play CSGO, there is a lot of input lag and the FPS is capped at 60FPS.

Is there any command to disable it on the go?

For instance I use the following launch option to increase digital vibrance just while playing CSGO, wouldn't mind adding a command to disable Force full composition pipeline

nvidia-settings -a "DigitalVibrance=1023" && %command% -nojoy -novid -fullscreen && nvidia-settings -a "DigitalVibrance=0"

Initially when I ran it a small window appeard that changed from black to white and back every few seconds. I looked on the internet and installed the component "crypt32", it looked like nothing changed but now it doesn't even give me the black and white window.. nothing happens when I tried to run it.

I need QTSIxa or related package for Sixaxis DualShock 3 Controller. Here's why.

Hi, I have two dualshock 3 controllers, and the two died because my cable was bad and it was not recharging them. After getting a good cable, I can't see if my dualshock 3 controller is charging or not, because the leds don't show.

Also I have problems while connecting the two controllers at same time.

I tested QTSIxa 1.2 with a live CD ISO.

But I want get the 1.5 version or any other gamepad driver that does show my controller recharging by blinking the led on it like SCP Driver does.

Games downloaded and installed on Win, is it possible to 'copy-paste' them and run on Linux? [Manjaro KDE]

Hey Linux gamers!

So as I wrote in the title, I have dual boot Windows 10 and Manjaro KDE. I use Windows purely for gaming and for a few applications that my college requires that doesn't run (or if it does it doesn't work properly) on Linux.

I have just installed Manjaro KDE on my 1 TB HDD and it works like a charm. I'd really like to run a few games on it, but I live in a country with slow internet and downloading a few games (Fallout 4, Far Cry 5 and Dirt 4) would take me about a day and a half, so I'm asking is it possible to copy-paste directories of these games to Linux and then run them through Steam (I bought all the games mentioned)?

Now I know that Dirt 4 has native support for Linux, but again, my internet is really slow and I can't wait for it to download.

If anyone can help me on this I'd really appreciate it! Also, I've used Linux before and I know how to use it and work on it, but I've never actually did any gaming on it. I've seen that gaming on Linux is now better than ever, so if you can also give me a few tips and tricks about that, it'd be amazing.

Thanks in advance and take care people!

Lutris &amp; i3-gaps: Overwatch black screen when changing workspaces

Hi all, bit of an odd bug I've found. Hoping there's a solution.

I'm running Debian 10 with i3-gaps, the game runs perfectly fine. I noticed yesterday that if I move to another workspace (i.e browse the internet), then move back to the workspace that Overwatch is running on, I get a black screen. The only fix is to kill the process and restart the game.

Wondering if anyone else has encountered this and knows of a fix.

Reflection: eventually something like STADIA is what Valve would do to survive, prosper and f*** sony and M$

Well, steam machines are undoubtedly gone. but do not forget that the philosophy was not only to have a plan B in case of microsoft wallgardening. they also wanted to merge console and PC market to enlarge their userbase.

And given that in some countries few people use steam and a lot use playstation/xbox (examples? italy!) , how can valve compete? selling machines? naaaaaaaaaaay!

Now, i ask myself...why would you buy a $500 console plus 500$ of bounght games in 2020 when you can have at the same price 100 months (8 years) of cloud gaming using mini-gadgets like a fire tv stick?

Another question. How could Valve earn money if they simply let you play free all the library in cloud?

My answer is: Build a service based on linux, like stadia, but let people play remotely the games they already own at 5$ per month.


-no tinkering with building and upgrading a full fledged PC or subtract it to daddy's use ,

-no tinkering with os upgrade, antivirus etc.

-no tinkering with proton versions and EAC

Just use a linux powered "valve stick" or "valveberry", or eventually an android app.

And dear developer, as you built a cloud gaming linux executable, please ship it also for download to linux machines, so that people can buy and play the game also on a standard "steamos 4.x" powered stuff.

P.S. valve is creating an embedding container, using also wayland and the new compositor. may be the problem of "configuration babel" will be hopefully gone soon or late.

Morrowind on OpenMW.

Eighteen years ago I bought Morrowind on CD playing it on Windows XP. It's a really lovely game that doesn't hold your hand like the later Elder Scrolls titles, but super buggy and crashed a lot. Yesterday I finally got around to trying to play Morrowind on Linux through OpenMW . And I have to say wow! I wish I had tried this a while ago.

Specs: OpenMW v0.46.0 via Ubuntu PPA on LinuxMint 20 64-bit Cinnamon. Intel i7-6700k CPU, Nvidia GTX-970 with proprietary driver, 16GB RAM.

Here's what encouraged me to try it. This is from their FAQ on their web site:

Why is the version number less than 1.0? Is OpenMW incomplete? Dont let the version number being less than 1.0 fool you: OpenMW is more stable and less buggy than the original Morrowind game engine and only lacks a few minor features. Reaching version 1.0 signals that it has reached feature parity with the original Morrowind game engine. After that, the project will change directions and de-hardcode Morrowind game mechanics, improve modder tools, and add many new features beyond the original game engine. See this document for the complete post-1.0 roadmap.

I played for many hours and the game never crashed at all like it used to. I repeat, it did not crash at all!!! The mechanics and plot so far seem very solid and bugs worked out. All graphics set on high. The only issues I've encountered is shadows that show through walls and ceilings giving away that people or enemies are nearby, but this was the case with the original game engine too. And occasionally getting my character stuck, but I think I've figured that out that continuing to repeatedly press the forward key and jumping seems to fix this.

Also, as an interesting side point, you can press F3 to see your frames per second performance. And keep pressing it to see further information like how much CPU and GPU it is using and other things that I don't know what they are. I found my performance anywhere from 150 to low 30 FPS when things got busy. But even at it's lowest performance I never noticed any issues with game play.

It's amazing what these people at OpenMW have accomplished! Cross platform and way more stable than the original game! I encourage people to give it a try. You can buy the game on Steam and GOG.

How can I connect to my wireless Xbox one controller?

I have an Xbox one controller which I have been using on my windows boot and decided to give it a go on Linux as well but even though I can see it among connectible bluetooth devices, when I try to connect it says connection failed. I am a total noob and I want your help. Btw I use manjaro KDE and I have the latest non experimental kernel if it matters.

Advice for selecting a distro for Retro Gaming Laptop

Hello everyone,

Because of change of laptops in my job, I am buying cheaply a ThinkPad T460 (i5 6th gen with integrated graphics, 8GB RAM, 128 GB SSD) with intent to make it a portable retro gaming station. So first choice is of course a Linux as old Windows games are best served by WINE. So I need your help in choosing a distro that would easily cover following use cases on this kind of machine:
- Running old win98/xp era games via WINE, maybe with some kind of frontend
- Running emulators of pre-ps2 consoles through RetroArch or separate emulators accessed with a frontend (simillar to Launchbox for Windows).
- Occasionally watching a movie served by Plex Media Server

Of course any software tips when it comes to above uses would also be appreciated. While I am not a complete noob when it comes to Linux, I am still a greenhorn that dabbled in simple distros that I set up for family members who wouldn't need a Windows PC.

Mangohud workaround for Proton 5.13

There is a bug with the new Proton that prevents Mangohud (among other things) from working. It appears to stem from the use of the Steam Runtime container.

Below is my script that appears to workaround the problem for Mangohud, until a proper fix is released. This script has only been tested on Arch Linux and may require library path changes on other distributions.

32-bit games will require a modification to the game launch command as mentioned below.


# Hack to workaround broken Mangohud bug in Proton 5.13-1
# 32-bit Steam games: MANGOHUD32=1 %command%
# 64-bit Steam games: mangohud %command%

Mangohud workaround for Proton 5.13-1

It appears Mangohud and some other things were broken in the new Proton by the use of Soldier Steam Linux Runtime.

Valve is aware of the issue and in the meantime, this hack script I made seems to workaround the bug:

cp /usr/lib/libMangoHud.so $HOME
cp /usr/share/vulkan/implicit_layer.d/MangoHud.json $HOME/.local/share/vulkan/implicit_layer.d
sed -i "s|/usr/\\\\\$LIB|$HOME|g" $HOME/.local/share/vulkan/implicit_layer.d/MangoHud.json

I has only been tested on Arch Linux. Please let me know if it works on other distros.

PSA: You can see reports for removed games on Steam on ProtonDB by editing the link

Hi, I wanted to see the reports for Dirt 3 Complete Edition on ProtonDB. This game was removed from Steam... don't really know why, so it doesn't appear if you search for it. However, you can search for it on SteamDB, copy the game ID, and replace it in the ProtonDB link at the end. For example, this would be the link for Dirt 3 Complete Edition, inaccessible by other means: https://www.protondb.com/app/321040

You can even submit new reports to them! ProtonDB should still include these games in my opinion.

Need help, my Linux gaming experience has been going downhill since 20 days ago

Hey everyone, i am a Linux user since 2018, and i've been gaming in Linux since 2019. My main PC has a Ryzen 7 1700, 16GB of DDR4 3200MHz Corsair RAM, an RX 480 4GB, 250GB NVMe SSD+1TB HDD. My experience (using Arch Linux) until days ago was a true 100/100 for me. My games worked like a charm, some of them even better than on Windows 10. But, as i stated, since days ago, my experience took a sudden turn for the worse. For starters, NieR:Automata, a game i am very fond of, stopped working under official proton builds suddenly (link to the issued i posted in github). I reinstalled the game, wiped the HDD and recreated the steamlibrary directory i have on my HDD (ext4 format) ,tried every official proton build, reinstalled Arch, but none solved the issue. The game only works under custom forks, and i don't know to what extent. I read that it was a vulkan driver issue, but i waited for updates and none solved the issue, until today, the game does not work. Now, after days outside for work reasons, i fired up Project Cars 2, only to find my two new DS4 controllers stop being detected by steam (light goes from white to blue) until i quit the game. This issue happens with every other game i tried so far (at least 10 of them). I did everything i could, i am attached to Arch since i love the AUR, the rolling release for those excellent AMD drivers, and the whole DIY process. But now i am heartbroken since i can't play anymore. I've checked the controllers on my PS4 and they work great. Haven't tested on Windows since i ditched it completely. In this moment, i really don't know what to do. I am torn between trying a *buntu based distro (losing access to the AUR and rolling model) or dual booting Windows 10 until this gets solved (or not). I love Linux, but i also love gaming after a hard day of work, and this last two days have been dedicated to solve the two main issues i am facing, with no success. If any can help, i would be really grateful.

Proton versions used: 5.0.9 and 5.9 Glorious Eggroll's fork. Specs: Ryzen 5 2600x, 1650 Phoenix, and 16GB RAM @ 2133 mhz.

Skyrim doesn't run with proton 4.11-13

My graphics card is a GTX 560

nvidia driver 390.138

Linux Mint 20

Yesterday I got Skyrim working by using Proton 4.11-13 and launch options WINEDLLOVERRIDES="xaudio2_7=n,b" PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=90 %command%. It was working and I was able to get through character creation and the tutorial area. Then I tried to save and quit, but the game froze. I couldn't alt-tab out and the steam overlay wouldn't come up, so I restarted the whole system. Now when I start the game the launcher comes up and the opening Bethesda logo will play, but the main menu won't appear. It's just a black page with the dragon symbol.

I've looked everywhere I can think, but I can't find anyone else with the same issue.

The crazy thing is that if I start jstest-gtk all axes seem to be detected correctly

DirectStorage API Open Source equivalent?

How likely is it that an open source storage API like Microsoft's upcoming DirectStorage in the Xbox Series X gets developed? I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to things like this, but I think it would be pretty cool if games could take advantage of fast NVMe drives reducing CPU overhead too, and making loading times much faster.

Again, I'm quite ignorant in regards to knowing how APIs and such work, and I'm also guessing that it would be pretty hard to make it the mainstream thing to use when creating a Linux version of game, taking into consideration how Linux gaming still needs to increase its userbase.

Just to get this out of the way English is not my first language so brace yourselves for some messups here and there

I'm looking at redoing my pc and laptop setup and changing everything to linux for convenience and because windows 10 has been quite bothersome recently so I'm searching for a Linux distro that's capable of running on two devices at once similar to cloud computing services like shadow or gaming sevices like stadia but using my pc as the server preferably without using VMs and have it usable remotely from my laptop with minimal delay but swap to my laptop to continue the work in case the network starts getting weak since it's a common occurrence where I live

I know this is a bit of a tall order but I'm curious as to the possibilities if there isn't any distro for doing this I'd appreciate any recommendations for softwares that might make up for the lach there of

Star Citizen &amp; Virpil Constellation Alpha HOSAS - Blinking mouse-cursor bug, help?

So I've got myself a pair of Virpil Constellation Alpha joysticks to use with Star Citizen. However I get this annoying bug in the menus if I move the thumbstick on the joystick, where the cursor blinks in and out of existence in the menus and only remains visible if I constantly move the mouse; clicking when it's not visible doesn't count as a mouseclick. This persists until I unplug one of the joysticks and alt-tab out'n'into the game again. If I set up the thumbstick as a mouse the cursor goes to the given position i input, however the moment I stop the cursor in a specific place it recenters to the middle of the screen, causing it to constantly blink between the registered position and the center of the screen.

Obviously the thumbsticks and the way they're handled are somehow to blame. I've noticed that the thumbsticks also register when viewing gamepad (not joystick) input in antimcrox, so I wonder if that has something to do with it since, when using a gamepad, the game allows menu-navigation by using a thumbstick; basically I suspect the game sees 2 or 3 thumbsticks (2 thumbsticks on joysticks + the virtual gamepad thumbstick), and tries to make all of them the mouse.

I could just disable the the thumbpads in joystick firmware, but then I'd be unable to use the thumbsticks for anything and loose 4 axis and 2 buttons of input, which I'd rather not.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Nvidia 450 driver freezing my system

If I try to use Nvidia 450 or 455 drivers (even the server version) my system freezes. Most of the time, I can't even start the session freezing while it's loading it. When this happens I can't do anything else and have to do a hard reset.

Sometimes I can't start the session but it freezes after a few seconds. I can move the mouse but can't do anything beyond that and again have to do a hard reset.

Nouveau and Nvidia 390 work but iI need the most recent drivers because I use proton on steam and this is required to work.

So here are some things I thought:
1) It's probably not something directed caused by an updated in nvidia driver. The reason I think that it's because this issue started a few days ago but affects the drivers from 440 to 455 (and my drivers was up to date before that)
2) It's probably related to packages that would exist in a clean install (but, a full clean install including third party stuff). The first thing I did in my last clean install was doing a ubuntu-drivers autoinstall.
3) After updating any driver higher than 390 I will have the issue in the next reboot and would not be able to start the system without freezing until downgrading again to 390. Thus, it's something that only 440 and higher have. But I have no idea what would be that,.

I have to say that there is a lot of "The file or folder does not exist."


I really don't know what I can really do beyond keeping my drivers at 390 at the moment, since if I try to change to 450 my system will freeze. And i don't have sufficient knowledge to explore solutions only through the command line. The only thing i really could get was the said logs above.

I also have the Nvidia bug report... But for some unknown reason, Ii can't paste bin it and I can't send upload files here, but I accept suggestions on what would be the better way to do that.

Remnant: From The Ashes on Epic Games on Linux, Multiplayer Connection Fix

This video shows how to fix multiplayer in Remnant: From the Ashes.


Apparently, its because extra enabled NIC's on the system screw with the STUN requests of the game, which end up making the game go into a connection loop then kick you back into the main menu.

To fix it, you just disable those extra NIC's temporarily. The video shows how.

Getting Brawlhalla on Pop OS

Hello, I've been trying to get brawlhalla on my old laptop which is running Pop OS 20.04. Steam gives an error (invalid platform) and Lutris just redirects to Steam, but Proton says Brawlhalla has a Platinum rating for compatibility. Am I doing something wrong or can you not run Brawlhalla on Pop OS 20.04?

Lower FPS on some games but higher on others

Hello I am currently using opensuse and I was wondering if this is normal? I get lower fps on games like tf2 or Minecraft but higher FPS on games like hoi4. I have feral game mode on and the settings are the same I had them at on windows. Are there any settings I can tweak to get better performance at the cost of battery life on opensuse? Similar to performance mode on windows. If there are any solutions please share them

My specs on my laptop if it matters I3-8130u Intel hd620

On tf2 I get 50 choppy with lowest possible and super low resolution I used to get 720 p on low settings smooth 60 above FPS

On Minecraft I get 30 - 50 FPS on low when I used to get 60-100 on medium low.

Thank you.

New to Linux and I am interested in doing a Windows VM GPU Passthrough

Hello everyone! I am a windows 10 user but I am interested in switching over to Linux. For trying out Linux, I ended up using a 240gb SSD and putting Manjaro Linux on that. Just to mess around with it and see how I like that. However because not everything is supported on linux, I wanted to try a Windows 10 Virtual Machine with GPU pass through for streaming, editing, playing video games, etc. Now Im not really sure where to begin with setting up a virtual machine with a GPU passthrough

For those wondering here are my specs:



GPU: RTX 2060

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16gb LPX 2933

Minecraft. High FPS, choppy gameplay.

I've just installed linux mint to compare the fps to windows 10's. i managed to get 200 more fps on DEFAULT settings. However, the game feels like its either running on 60 or 50 fps. I have V-sync off. I use 120hz. (on windows I got less fps but not as choppy) Im new to linux, I need help!

Thanks already!

Migrating from Windows 10, having some minor teething pains

Hi gang,

I've started the steady and exciting process of fully migrating over from Windows; I've been a Linux user for many years, mostly for programming and general-use, both on a laptop fully dedicated to it and as a dual-boot on my gaming desktop.

I've decided I'd like to try a complete migration from Windows to Manjaro on my desktop, now, so I've currently got Manjaro running as a dual-boot alongside Windows 10. I've spent a good few days setting up Manjaro, but I've encountered a few problems during the process, and was hoping I could get some advice from anyone who might have had a similar experience initially getting to grips with gaming on Linux.

The first, main issue is that a number of my Steam games which should be supported don't seem to work. At time of writing, the only games I've managed to successfully boot are Devil Daggers and Team Fortress 2. I've tried running FFXIV, DoDonPachi Resurrection, Dirt Rally 2, DUSK, Hedon and DOOM 64, and none of these work with Steam's Proton. The label on the Steam library icon simply changes from PLAY, to STOP, then back to PLAY again, and the games don't launch. What I found interesting, though, is that if I just navigated to their directory and ran them there, the game ran fine - I've installed DXVK and Wine (not sure I've configured DXVK correctly, yet)

Now, those games above, as well as some others, were already installed to my drive from my Windows installation; I'm wondering if this might be part of the problem, and if I should gut the lot and re-download everything (particularly if any game has a Linux Native port, which would certainly be better than a Windows port running via Wine)

I'm a bit confused by the options in terms of emulation layers, also: is it necessary to have multiple installed, or woiuld a combination like DXVK & Gallium-Nine cause issues, for instance? AUR also has a package for Proton, independently of Steam; would this enable me to use a tool like Lutris to use Proton with non-Steam games?

If I do decide to fully migrate, I'm probably going to completely format my main hard drive, completely getting rid of the old boot record and Windows OS, and re-install Manjaro on a fresh partition. With that in mind, my questions would be: * Should I also format my game drives/partitions and re-download everything? * Is it necessary to install Proton separately from Steam? What's the best option(s) for playing non-Steam games that might not have Linux ports? * What is the "right" set of compatability/emulation tools for Steam and non-Steam games without Linux ports?

I hope anyone with a similar experience might be able to share some wisdom; these are probably really stupid questions, I'd just really love to just get into gaming on Linux!

World of Warcraft Pre-Patch: Error #138

I'm very new to Linux based distro's admittedly. I'm running Pop-OS for that reason. After getting everything set up on the same month as world of warcraft's pre-patch, I inevitably began to install Lutris on my computer after thoroughly installing needed updates. I have World of Warcraft installed, along with all possible dependencies, AMD64 drivers, and generally whatever I could find involving DXVK.

Getting to the point, it takes three to ten seconds at MOST (repeatedly) on the connection portion of the login to recieve a critical error: #138 (0x8510008a), along with wow's generic unexpected error prompt. The result of this not only closes world of warcraft, but also battle.net, killing both programs.

I have been checking year old forums all day today and will continue to do so until the problem is fixed, or until I have run out of all possible options to fix this. (Unfortunately, I ran out fast as my problem appears to be unique to my situation.)

Any external help would be greatly, greatly appreciated. I will do whatever it takes in my power to be able to play pre-patch, even if it means dual-booting into the operating system mess of privacy called windows ten. I have a Ryzen 5 2600, and an RX 570 w/ eight gigs of ram.

Additional problems include (seemingly) unfixable battle.net lockup during long-term WoW download (making it download absolutely nothing, and possibly eating up garbage data through the internet) until it is force stopped or until all wine processes are killed, also the launcher is generally laggier than the windows version. Dunno if it's a problem or just an emulation thing. I'm obviously not verbose in this category.

How to install AC Origins through Steam (Lutris)

Today, I bought a couple of Assassins Creed titles from Steam sales. I have been trying to install and launch AC Origins, but I am unable to. After launching, the window remains black and stops responding after a few seconds. My installation method was clicking on Install button under Steam version in Lutris.net origin page. The installer firstly installed Uplay client, which I have signed into and linked the game to that account. After that, it automatically tries to start the game, although it is not downloaded anywhere. Thats where I get the black window. Doesn't matter if I download the game through Steam or Uplay, it always tries to start it without working. The description in Lutris says that game should run flawlessly after Uplay ingame overlay, but disabling it did not help.

What am I doing wrong? Could you please provide me with step-by-step installation process?
Thank you!

Wine regression regarding Silent Hunter 3

So i am maniac of u-boats i play Silent Huner 3 with GWX since it came out i remember playing it on my ivy brudge ( intel hd 4000) using wine and it worked okay, antialiasing was absent, but everything played well.

Now i am using newest wine stable on my Arch linux and there is a checkered smoke looking like dirty cloth and i can't stand it.

I checked winehq bugzilla for this and i found it

BUG #8826 and it was resolved by patching i tiny bit of code and recompile wine

but, newest wine source looks different in matter of directory tree so i don't know how to patch it

"Add gl_vertex_program_point_size call to state_pscale Have attached the patch I'm using at the moment. I just add the call to state_pscale if glsl is being used. This seemed like the most relevant spot I could find for it."

This is the key, what i can do to implement this to wine source? im not programmer i know shit about patching source code

Here's why Cyberpunk 2077 will run with proton in day one without any issues or major tweaks.

Cyberpunk 2077 uses CD PROJEKT RED ENGINE

Which doesnt require too much tweaks in windows, it uses same api that wine use. EG: The witcher 3 run fine without much tweaking.

-> It will be fully compatible with dxvk

-> There will be no DRM, meaning that DRM will not break proton/wine

Polished game, it means that will not break system o.s( and wine)

Can you feel it?

WoW Lutris Nondescript Error

I've been trying to get WoW to run through Lutris for some time now (installed through Battle.net) but all I get is the most non-verbose, nondescript error possible. After clicking play, selecting English and clicking "OK" on the other prompt, this is what lutris gives me (yes, a "weird?"):


Utilizing Lutris 5-7-10, nvidia_icd.json as my Vulkan loader. Wine-staging doesn't work and I suspect something to do with DXVK, but I had played WoW previously without major annoyances (only huge fps drops caused by particles, fog, etc.).

Here are my specs:

[Help] [Question] Among Us on Mac?

Hi! I am using macOS 10.14.4 Mojave hackintosh.

I want to play among us with my friends so i decided to use Wine/Crossover etc.

First, I tried Wine/PlayOnMac and it gave me errors.

Next, I tried Crossover. I made it to run, so i hear the BGM. It appeared on my dock, and I can see that program has a window and I can see it by clicking right in mouse and click all windows.

But the problem is, that I see a invisible window. It is 100% transparent.

How can I fix? Thanks!

Controller mapping software with gyro?

I'm using hid-nintendo and joycond to use 2 joycon as a single controller with gyro.

I bought Robotics;Notes ELITE and DaSH today, as they recently got localized. I have tried to get them running via Proton, but neither get past the loading screen after starting. All the other Sci;Adv games worked pretty easily under Proton.

I have tried all of the proton versions i have installed, and none of them get to the main menu. It seems like it should be possible to get the 2 games working, but im not to smart when it comes to this kind of thing, so i have not figured it out.

"Games not working" Compilation? (via ProtonDB perhaps?)

I understand ProtonDB et. al. are not official and all of those "gaming on linux" compilation lists are wiki-style contributed by all. I also understand a game can work "flawlessly" right now but tomorrow a patch drops (online games using anti-cheat etc) and bang! Linux is out of the equation.

However, is there a way to currently get a sense of what's "not playable" on Linux right now? I was taking a look at protonDB's "borked", but not sure if that's as good as it's going to get.

Basically, I just wanna see what games I would need to KVM-passthrough or dual-boot. I also understand not every game released out there will make it to a list like this, but I mean, most of the well-known games are very likely to be.

I didn't use it for a few weeks maybe months on Linux so i don't think it's really the fall the problem.

State of HDR on Linux - October 2020

Hey Guys!

Rather simple question: as of October 2020, what is the state of HDR support, in all of its flavours, on various distributions and on various hardware?

I'll be updating this thread to included information from the comments below. If the configuration is not mentioned- it's either not supported or support is unknown. I'm hopping to keep this updated as more information comes in.

Trouble with Lutris

Hi guys! I'm having a trouble to start Lutris, launched it from terminal and got this message: "No module named 'urllib3.packages.six' ". Urllib3 is updated through pip, also googled/ddgoed it, try to uninstall and reinstall a couple of stuff but nothing. Running on fedora 32, btw.

Also, an user from Lutris discord suggested to start python prompt with python3 and try to import urllib3.packages.six, and got no error message.

Full terminal (when I try to launch it) is here: https://imgur.com/JKu3tCv

Any help is welcome!

whatcha think about webGL gaming?

I saw a post on fb about linux being the future of gaming, which i think is awesome, but i think I'd rather webGL be the future. As a game maker myself, i went through the whole cycle of putting my game on steam and android, both windows and linux, it was such a pain, and all the work it took didn't exactly payoff, yea i realize not everyone is gonna have the candycrush success. But lately I've been more focused on my website and having my games just exist there, cut out the middle man. I find that it is much more satisfying creative wise and i can make a much more unique experience with it. The big drawback though is multiplayer doesn't work, I'm hoping to find an easy way to make multiplayer work and then i can fully cut my ties with steam.

Path of Exile Performance

Hey all,

I've been playing a lot Path of Exile for the new season, but out of the box performance (either via Lutris or stock Proton on Steam) was abysmal. The game crashed all the time if I had multi-threaded performance enabled, and disabling it meant picture frames during average-size encounters (on an RTX 2080, Ryzen 2600).

I've found three solutions that fix virtually 100% these issues that I thought I'd share.

  1. Install Glorious Eggroll and use that instead of stock Proton/Lutris' Wine. Version 5.9-GE-7 was released about a week ago with several Path of Exile specific fixes, and now GE-8 was released last night with an updated dxvk.

  2. Install Feral Gamemode.

  3. Set the launch properties on Steam to this:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgamemodeauto.so.0 __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATION=1 __GL_SHADER_CACHE=1 DXVK_STATE_CACHE=0 PROTON_NO_GLSL=1 PROTON_USE_D9VK=1 RADV_PERFTEST=aco PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 DXVK_ASYNC=1 %command% --waitforpreload --noasync --nodx9ex --gc2 --nologo

Remove RADV_PERFTEST=aco if you're on an Intel CPU (it's an AMD only adjustment). If you're using Lutris, use only the following commands (which removes the Feral Gamemode line as Lutris will automatically do that).

DXVK_STATE_CACHE=0 PROTON_NO_GLSL=1 PROTON_USE_D9VK=1 RADV_PERFTEST=aco PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 DXVK_ASYNC=1 %command% --waitforpreload --noasync --nodx9ex --gc2 --nologo

Afterwards set Path of Exile to use DirectX 11 instead of Vulkan and you'll be good-to-go (Vulkan is still in beta and, from my research, is the cause of the crashes while using multi-threaded performance).

Been doing T9 maps using a Barrage Fireball build that shoots out hundreds of fireballs per second and, outside of the initial stutter I'd experience even in Windows, performance has been rock solid.

Wine does not open Fallout

I'm on OS Catalina and trying to play the original Fallout. I've downloaded it from here, created a new wrapper (Fallout.app), copied the folder I downloaded, and stablished FalloutLaucher.exe as the .exe file just as the readme said. The thing is that once everything is set the app just doesn't open. The readme said it should be executed as administrator, so I guess maybe the problem lies there. I've read on other forums that some people with the same problem have suddenly become unable to open other wrappers but I've tried with my AM2R one and works just fine. The only problem seems to be on the Fallout Wrapper. Is there any way to solve this? Btw, I'm quite new to WineSkin, so maybe the it's a really simple problem to solve.

I almost want to go to windows because of the weird mouse speed

So firstly I use the Logitech G502 hero SE. It has onboard profiles so I thought it would be fine. Anyways when I launch my pc the mouse is super fast or slow before I log on and then it's slightly more normal. I have a software called piper that is closer to the actual Logitech software but it somehow combines with the mouse speed option in the settings. Whenever I change usb ports the speed for some reason changes. I'm trying to get really good at pvp on this one game but if my mouse keeps being weird i'm not sure what to do. I run ubuntu 20.04

TL;DR I want to have a singular software control the mouse speed that ISN'T a slider so I can get an exact dpi number that works for me.

WoW Pre-Patch Crash Fix

Hey guys, how is it going,

I'm a really noob to linux, so I thought this might help others fix an issue.
You open the game as usual, the cinematic starts running but it freezes... you have to kill the process manually Force Quit.

This worked for me on my amd64 Ubuntu 20.04

You can find your version on how to install wine staging that you'll need to use on the World Of Warcraft using Lutris In Here
So first, get wine staging installed.

When you are done installing and updating. Open Lutris > click on Configure > Runner Options and under Wine Version, select WineHQ Staging I'm using 5.19 .

Let wine install and run the game.

Among Us With Wine Keyboard Problem

I use Kubuntu 20.04. I play Among Us with wine a lot but something's bothering me a lot since long. Whenever I run Among Us, the WASD buttons work fine. But since I use discord, I have to keep switching workspaces. Whenever I switch a workspace and go back to Among Us, the WASD keys don't work. I can still type in the game chat but cannot control the character. I have a workaround but it is annoying. After switching the workspace, I have to make the game windowed and then fullscreen again. I did my best to explain my problem. Can someone help me please? Any help will be appreciated :)

  • check if HMD device is present before opening SteamVR/Stereo3D VR (fixes #94)

Which GPU should i buy?

Hello linux gamers,

i need a little bit of help. I want to buy a new graphic card. I don't want to discuss about my choice to switch to AMD:D
At the moment i play on a GTX 1060 and i need something from AMD.
I don't want to use the NVIDIA stuff anymore. I had only problems with it.
BUT i don't have a huge amount of money, so i can't afford the rx 5700 xt (i think this is their flagship card). I think i can pay like 150 or less. I have no problem with buying a used one. (TBH i prefer buying a used one not just because of the price). But my problem is that i have no idea about the jungle of graphic cards:D The names are like 024958209345290XZUTWH and my Brain is like "whaaaaatttt?".
So which one can i start to search on ebay. It should be simmilar or better in comparison to my gainward nvidia 1060.
Thank you all for your help!<3

Linux gaming for the lazy person

As the title says - I'm lazy. I have experience with Linux, although not the graphics driver/de/graphical parts. I am perfectly capable of following guides and could probably figure some things without them if I had to. But I'm lazy. To my, admittedly out of date, knowledge, playing games on Linux takes a lot of effort, enough that I'd rather dual boot. Is my memory correct or is it different nowadays? The games I play are mostly older large titles. Most recently it's been Mass Effect Andromeda and before that The Surge.

Steam just creating folder during download

Hello all, I recently let go of my windows addiction and put Linux Mint on my Alienware 17r4. Last week, I tried queuing up 5 games to download and install while I went afk. When I came back, steam had said the games were all installed, but it had just created the folders and not downloaded the actual files.

I cant find any info about this on google, and wanted to see if anyone had heard about this before or not.

Solution for Nvidia + chrome corruption after suspend

I just wanted to share a simple solution that I found for one of the most annoying bug I had with Nvidia and chrome based browser.

When my computer goes to sleep then resume the chrome window is all corrupted and only a restart would work.

The known workarounds with flags

--use-cmd-decoder=validating --use-gl=desktop 

Did not work for me.

Enabling vulkan only made the browser slow and unusable.

The solution I found is to create a systemd sleep file and kill the chrome gpu processes (no restart required)

create a file named


with the following content

case $1/$2 in
    echo "Going to $2..."
    echo "Waking up from $2..."
    kill $(ps aux | grep '[b]rave --type=gpu-process' | awk '{print $2}') 2>/dev/null

make it executable

sudo chmod a+x /lib/systemd/system-sleep/nvidia-resume.sh

and replace the '[b]rave' with the name of your browser '[c]hrome' '[v]ivaldi' but keep the [] around the first letter to remove the grep process in the results.

It might not be related to "gaming" but i'm sure many people with nvidia cards have this issue

Hope it helps.

Is Proton ready to replace VFIO for most games?

Hi everyone, about half a year ago I completely switched to Linux, after only using it for university and my home server before. I set up VFIO for gaming and was very happy with it. Only problem is my GPU: a Radeon VII. Most Windows drivers for it are horrible and they crashed regularly when playing League. So I thought being able to reboot the VM while remaining in discord was a huge plus.

Then I came across the reset bug which isn't really resolved to this day. Additionally more games are implementing ridiculous anti-cheat, but that's another story...

The Radeon VII drivers for Linux should be pretty nice, as far as I know. So my thought was if I should ditch my VM for now and just game using Proton. I can play Warframe for example at 4k at about 60FPS in my VM. Therefore my question: Do you guys know, if Proton is fine for most games? I know that League needs Lutris and has a few quirks, but it isn't really on my radar atm anyways.

Cities: Skylines Bugs

There is a bug on Cities Skylines that happens every time: If I load/start a game, then try to load/start a new game using a different map (from the workshop), then various bugs occur:

Sometimes it gives this error, and after that the map is a corrupted version of the map I was trying to load before, and the game lags to the point of becoming unplayable. It looks like a memory corruption.

Sometimes it gives a DirectX Thread error and crashes

Sometimes it also gets stuck while loading, and then I have to forcefully kill the game and start it again.

I tried both the Linux native version and the Windows version, using Proton, both have the same problem, except that the Linux version does not use DirectX.

The only way to solve the bug is to close the game and open it again.

It may be a bug in the maps from the workshop, but I've tried it on various maps and all have the same problem. I tested it on Arrowhead Valley, Powatan Valley, Flatrock Valley and Delta Range 2 (all from the Workshop)

Is there any way to make it work normally?

Can't run games with custom versions of Proton

Not sure why this happens, but as of a few weeks ago it seems I can't run games with custom versions of Proton anymore. Launching the game with a custom version of Proton selected makes it hang at the "Preparing to launch" window. And I can run games fine using the latest Steam-provided version of Proton.

This is the terminal output I get while trying to run the game:

GameAction [AppID 1011990, ActionID 4] : LaunchApp changed task to ProcessingInstallScript with ""
Proton: Upgrading prefix from 5.0-1 to 5.9-GE-7-ST (/home/reb/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/1011990/)
Proton: Prefix has an invalid version?! You may want to back up user files and delete this prefix.

Doesn't seem like there's anything useful, the last bit seems to appear whenever you switch versions of Proton for a game. Not sure if there's a better way to see what Proton is doing, the only log-related things I've seen are for actually running the games, not the prefix creation part.

Things I've tried:

  • Moving the game to the drive where Steam is installed
  • Reinstalling Proton-GE
  • Checking if I have enough disk space
  • Checking the permissions of the compatibilitytools.d folder

Any ideas ?

Games which require a specific Proton version?

via https://github.com/frostworx/steamtinkerlaunch/issues/100 :

Can you think of any game which requires a specific Proton version to work (correctly)?
Or is there maybe even a list?

The reason I ask is that I'm implementing a Proton autoswitch (with optional auto-download) which can be used in tweaks, so if a game depends on a specific proton version it switches automatically to that version which makes the game work out of the box.

Would be nice if a bunch of tweak files would make it into the next steamtinkerlaunch release together with the function.

Any contribution to the above issue would help others to play the game ootb so feel free to add some titles if you know some (which is the general idea of the tweak files in steamtinkerlaunch)

Perfect would be a usable tweak file like this:

Ubuntu GamePack vs SparkyLinux Game Over Edition

I've been tinkering around with an old laptop and I decided that I want to play low spec/ old games (Half-Life, CS Source, Terraria, Undertale) on it using Linux. I've been trying to decide between Ubuntu GamePack and SparkyLinux Game Over Edition. On one hand, SLGO is more lightweight, but Ubuntu GamePack is better. If someone could give advice, that would be great.

How to make "tweaks" with proton

protontricks and No Man's Sky

So I can't see to get No Man's Sky to work in multiplayer, and over on protondb, they suggest that you run protontricks to make it work. So I go ahead and install protontricks (and winetricks, since it seems to require it), and then I think you just run the command and the command line, so I ran:

protontricks -q --force dotnet40 win7

The thing is that it then complains about a 32-bit vs. 64-bit WINEPREFIX as it loads various commands:

Duel Links Data Transfer Problems

Hello. I been playing duel links since last December. I did bought quite a lot of packs and structure decks with monies, and pour over 600 hours into this game. I recently found out for some reason that my steam duel links is not connected to my email (konami ID). It's weird because when I signed up, I put my email in it. When I log in that email on my phone, all of the data is not there at all...

I then found out that I was suppose to do "data transfer." Nearly every game is set up automatically and there is no reason to do a "data transfer." Except for this game, typical konami. I got shafted pretty hard there. Anyways, I tried to do a data transfer, then realized that it won't work because it is tried run through windows via XDG-Open. So I set up a script, (link to github) and got it working. Although, every time I click data transfer, and run the script, it would crash the duel links client. In github link, scroll down to last comment. In that comment shows the bug report. It says that it can't connect to the host, and now host will be closed down (crash).

Side note, I talked to customer service, and it's beating on a dead horse at this point. They just go circles and never read my responses. All they do is copy and paste "solutions."

Could anybody help me out on this one?

Is Win10 still better than Linux in low-end gaming?

I found an old laptop (Inspiron 1420) and I decided to tinker around with it and have it try to run some old/ low spec games (Half-Life, CS Source, Age Of Empires, Terraria, Undertale, etc.). I've done some research on Linux and Windows in gaming and windows is better for gaming, but Linux is better for old laptops, so I'm stuck, which should I choose?

The Dark Mod Linux

The Dark Mod is a community made game based on the Doom 3 engine, with awesome gameplay and graphic quality.

The thing is that the official installer just allows to download it as a standalone into one user folder. So I have created a software that allows to both install and package it into any Linux system wide, as any other application.

Mouse sensitivity weird with Source Engine games!

Today, I had enough of Windows 10 and installed Linux Mint. The installation goes along just fine and I installed Steam. I go into TF2 and try to play, when I realise while everything works fine, the mouse movements are kinda "jumpy" and "laggy". I tested in CSGO, same issue. I really want to play TF2 and CSGO. Is there any way to fix the mouse? I will try to record a video if anyone asks for it.

Properly loading a dll file into a game

Alright some background facts, running a rolling release Linux dist with steam on typical x86 hardware. Now thanks to Linux being secure it doesn't allow code injection into running software by default, as Windows does, although this can be disabled.

Now here's the question, how do I load dll files into a running game in Linux? Most mods using this injection method comes with a proprietary injector software like Xenos64.exe or similar, which obviously only works in Windows. I found a open source project called "linux-inject", compiled and ran but it doesn't seem to be able to inject the dll file into the running game.

Any ideas? has anyone tried this?

RetroPie via. Linux Mint Wii u Pro Controller

Hey guys,

so i'm new to the retropie scene, i've been playing emulators for quite a while now(lately RG350M).

so what i did is, i installed linux mint on an old EEE PC 1000H, installed RetroPie using https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Debian/ this guide, and set it up to boot directly into retropie.

So i wanna use a Wii U Pro Controller, which i already connected successfully. the guide i've seen says, that i can just hit a random button and it will reconnect, but i have to manually reconnect it via the bluetooth settings, it works perfectly fine, but that requires me to go to linux mint before i can start playing. I wanna set this netbook up for my son so he can play some mario and stuff...any advices on how to solve this?

ps: i'm a linux noob lol.

Bioshock Reamastered Proton - Need Original?

I installed both just in case the old one somehow had some dependencies that the new one needed. Can I just delete the original to free up some space on my SSD?

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive/OpenGL Performance on AMD vs Nvidia

Can anyone with recent, first-hand knowledge speak to CSGO performance on AMD cards? I've been using Nvidia to game on Linux for years, but I'm in the process of building a new rig specifically for CSGO and wanted to get the community's opinion. I'm not looking to start a flame war, argue open-source idealism, or anything like that. I'm looking for hard facts from people who have experience playing this specific game natively on Linux with AMD cards.

What say you, AMD users? Is it 100% rock solid and stable? Any stuttering, tearing, crashes, randomness, craziness, etc.? If you were me, and this is the only game you played, would you stick with Nvidia or go with AMD?

I'm leaning towards staying with Nvidia, but wanted to ask the community before doing so.

Linux + Wine vs Win10

I've recently been tinkering around with a really old laptop and I was wondering if I could install Linux on it (either Ubuntu or Pop os). If I ran Linux and Wine on very low spec games (Undertale, Half-Life, Terraria), would it be faster than if I ran it on win10?

The installation screen starts but does not install

Hello guys

I'm trying to install this old game, I followed this guide and unfortunately the installation only starts with a screen asking me where to install and then loads trailers for a very long time (this is normal) without starting with the actual installation .

I am using Manjaro, if this can be helpful.

I know it's a very special game, but I'd be grateful if you could help me out.

Thanks in advance.

How I solved issues with Wine and DXVK on Linux

Hi, I post this discussion here, since I am not able to crosspost; I post because I hope that I can help when/if someone will experience similar issues with wine gaming and DXVK. (I am on Manjaro XFCE, CPU Intel Core i5-3210M, GPU Intel HD4000, SSD, 16 GB Ram)

One month ago I started a discussion about issues with Wine and DXVK, when running GTA San Andreas: https://old.reddit.com/r/wine_gaming/comments/ircgr2/gta_san_andreas_wine_and_dxvk_issue/ I summarize: I experienced hardware overheating and I was forced to limit a lot the game, using libstrangle, to 30 FPS, but during this time, sometimes I still experienced the issues.

Well: I solved a lot. I installed wine-staging (currently 5-18, I am on a rolling release) and: in the game settings I reduced the screen resolution to 1280x720 and set the antialias to 2X.

I set these env variables: * STAGING_SHARED_MEMORY=1 * STAGING_WRITECOPY=1 * WINEDEBUG=-all * mesa_glthread=true

Set these entries in the Wine's regedit: https://i.ibb.co/44xbpYK/wine-regedit-Screenshot-2020-10-11-18-19-01.png

Then I run the game using a bash script which: setting MangoHud to force the Vsync (to avoid tearing), stop the compositor (used to introduce stuttering in some scenes of the game), set the performance governor on the CPU, using schedtool -n -20 to the game process.

And another useful thing which also helped, has been to edit the file effects.fxp of Gta San Andreas; this file is easily editable by opening it using any text editor: I disabled most of the particles effects, like the smoke which occurs during cars collisions and the wheels burnout of the cars. A good guide about is here: https://gtagmodding.com/sanandreas/particles/

How to update NVIDIA proprietary driver the GUI way on Manjaro

I received my Zotac GTX 1650 4GB GDDR6 two days ago amd I was able to install the proprietary driver using Manjaro Settings Manager. I just clicked Auto Install Proprietary Driver and everything went fine. Games, both native and Proton, ran without problem and I'm very happy with the performance increase. I get about 3 times the frame rate output of RX 550 4GB.

But I noticed the driver version is only 450.66. I tried system update but there is no update available.

According to NVIDIA's website, the latest Game Ready driver is 455.28 which was released on Oct. 7, 2020.

Halo: TMCC/GloriousEggroll Proton-5.9-GE-7-ST

last night i managed to play halo reach campaign with windows user played about 30-45 minutes and the game did not desync at any point so in order to do this I went to the directory that contains my proton inside steam folder /compatibilitytools.d/Proton-5.9-GE-7-ST/protonfixes/gamefixes/ and created a .py file with the game id in this case its 976730.py and the file should have the following lines

""" Halo: The Master Chief Collection """

Has anyone gotten the Epic Store version of ARK to run? I only get a black screen.

I got ARK: Survival Evolved for free on Epic some time ago. The Steam Windows version is supposed to work in Proton, minus BattlEye servers.

But when I launch the game through Epic with any of the available launch options in any Wine version and any DXVK version (currently lutris-5.7-10 + 1.7.2), I just get a frozen black screen with music playing. I also tried adding these custom launch options to no avail: -USEALLAVAILABLECORES -nomansky -low -sm4 -novsync -lowmemory

Launching the game with Wine outside the Epic Client results in the game crashing after a second or two.

The only output I get in the Terminal / Lutris log is:

wine client error:102: read: Ungltiger Dateideskriptor

(which translates to 'Invalid file descriptor')

I'm on Manjaro btw, with an RX580 and any Mesa version or AMDVLK. I have already verified the game files multiple times, and tried it with / without Esync / Fsync. The game is stored on ext4.

Unstable performance and low fps on average on CS:GO: Seeking general troubleshooting advice

Fellow gamers,

I am trying to run CS:GO native on an Arch installation but the performance I get is questionable (compared to Windows). The FPS are very unstable, even when facing a wall and not moving in a local server, and it's in average way lower than the FPS I get in Windows. At first I thought that it was normal to get this kind of performance on Linux but I saw benchmarks of people getting more FPS in Linux than Windows (and very stable performance).

What I did so far

  • Tried the closed-source driver AMDGPU-PRO (no improvement).
  • Measured CPU and GPU usage with both radeontop and mangohud.
  • GPU usage is unstable (oscillating between 50% and 80%).
  • CPU usage is low (max 50-60% on 1 core) but this is expected with CS:GO.
  • Checked if direct rendering is activated (it is)

My request

I am looking for advice and/or tools for troubleshooting this issue. I would like to find what is causing a bottleneck. If there is something I should try with my particular hardware (see below), I'd like to know too. In respect to rule 2, I want this post to at least have general advice that anyone could use with different hardware and/or distro.

Wonderfull! Playing music and Wine at same time with ALSA! It IS POSSIBLE! Rocksmith Tested + JACK

First of all thanks for the patience and sorry but my english is horrible I'm brazilian and never had english classes I hope this help many ppl with various problems..
I'm a windows user and a very curious guy, I was playing rocksmith but everytime I alt tabbed, my sound was GONE, i was omg what I gonna do now? After some searching I found this

WARNING: with this tutorial your pulseaudio won't start automatically anymore after playing sounds, it will however run at startup normally. Always run pulseaudio & (and you can close terminal after that) if you kill pulseaudio with pulseaudio -k.

inside it there's a option to enable routing audio from all soundcards into a single virtual audio.

sudo apt-get install paprefs

run paprefs


after that, all you have to do is switch default to that virtual audio

I didnt tested for input audio, because I'm using jack now.

Open your game( eg: rocksmith with my tutorial above for usb interfaces + mic)

if doesnt work do pulseaudio -k in terminal and after that run pulseaudio &




apt-get install qjackctl pulseaudio-module-jack
then sudo editing the /etc/pulse/default.pa file to include two lines under the load audio drivers manually section:

load-module module-jack-sink load-module module-jack-source 

run qjackctl and
if you're playing rocksmith, CHANGE TO 48000HZ (SAMPLING RATE) otherwise the input wont show in the game.
See the pic above, you MUST SELECT INPUT & OUTPUT
also dont forget to select UNLOCK MEMORY.


Now, kill pulseaudio and restart -> pulseaudio & , or restart your linux machine.

AFTER THAT( read again, AFTER, ) go to Connect

follow this to route your input and output through pulseaudio. I just risked one audio interface that was bugged because I started jackctl twice, just ignore it.
You will ask me, I did all this and have no sound.. Yes! Because your open applications will be configured to old audio input/output. Go to pavucontrol and make jack default both input and output, and voila! it will work FINE!

It's mindblowing because in windows I tried everything (voicemeeter, and stuff) and Didnt managed to use my mic in rocksmith & discord at same time.
If you find a problem with linux NEVER, NEVER GIVEUP (and please use xfce, is much better and lightweight -> nordic theme ;) )

If you play rocksmith must see this first.

Battlefield V (and other Origin games) install and launch perfectly, but crash when you enter a multiplayer game. Possible solutions?

I installed Origin via Lutris a few days ago and downloaded some games on it. Some work fine, but some such as Battlefield V work well in the menus and you can search for a game, but once it finds one and loads a level it crashes. I have all dependencies installed, and I'm using Debian. Got any idea what might cause this? Can't find anything out of the ordinary in the logs.

Wonderful! How to play &amp; Listen music with ALSA DRIVER (WINE) ? ROCKSMITH TESTED! Focusrite USB

I'm a curious guy and I don't settle with everything.
I was asking myself, hmm why I cant talk with friends on discord while playing Rocksmith? why my audio device(focusrite USB) must be occupied while using alsa driver on wine?

I was searching and I found this PAPREFS

sudo apt-get install paprefs

run paprefs


go to multiple outputs and enable it.

Now switch your main audio to simultaneos both input and output, and voila!

OpenTrack help Manjaro

got it installed, but i'm missing the freetrack option so it's not working in Star Citizen. I installed it via the AUR.

I'm using an EDTracker. so i've selected Linux Joystick input for the input.

Output options are:

libevdev joystick receiver
UDP over network

Watching all the videos it looks like there should be another option, Freetrack 2.0. What am i missing?

Issues with Ipega 9087 gamepad

Hello, i have a gamepad model ipega 9078. It should be detected as an xbox controller. At least, it should have the keymap as one. But it's being called a ps3 controller even if it's not one. And the keymapping in steam it's totally wrong

anyway to adjust it? xboxdvr it's not even detecting it

instead, it's creates 4 xbox 360 wireless receiver

the gamepad it's wireless, but since i am not with a bluetooth receiver at the moment, i am using it with the USB

hecking the evdev almost all inputs are in the wrong place

FIFA 19's performance is horrible in Wine.

Hello there.

I tried to play FIFA 19 in Wine, but the performance was terrible, with DirectX 11 (Low, 720p, Lock to 60fps) it's around 15-20 fps, in DirectX 12 (same settings) I just get a "DirectX Error" whenever I'm trying to play a match. I tried the cracked version as well, in that I had 60fps for like 30 seconds and then it dropped back to 15. I play Rocket League and Minecraft on Wine as well and they run perfectly 60FPS Full HD Ultra Settings. What's the problem with FIFA then? It runs well on Windows btw.

My config:
CPU: Ryzen 3 1200
GPU: GTX 1050 2GB

Do any of the old 2004-10 era RTS games such as AOE work on linux including multiplayer?

I wanna play with some mates, and we are on a mixture of Windows, Mac and Linux computers. We really like RTS (Age of Mythology, Age of Empires, Warcraft 3...) and were wondering if there were any game with an online (non LAN) multiplayer that we could play.

Old-ish game preferred because one of us is on a Thinkpad T450 and integrated graphics. Also online multiplayer, because one of us is currently stuck in a different continent, also covid.

Comment with the following:

Which Linux native game is your favorite to play online?

For me it's a toss up between Xonotic and Invisigun Heroes Reloaded. The first is the child of a passion love making session btw Quake 3 and UT99. The other is a 2D vs action game where you are invisible until you shoot your gun or use your special ability and it's a great way to play with friends.

[Wine/Lutris] Mouse movement weird in fullscreen windows

I can underclock my GPU but not overclock (RX 5700)

Hello everyone,

I wanted to start at OC my GPU, I own a Sapphire RX 5700 Pulse, I first used the method with AMDGPU for Ubuntu in command line via the terminal, but I get this message "permission denied" while I'm in advanced user mode (sudo), I don't know what blocks it or how to unblock it.

I did some research, and found two interesting tools, Powerupp (https://github.com/azeam/powerupp) and CoreCTRL (https://gitlab.com/corectrl/corectrl), while Powerupp is apparently used by OC and CoreCTRL to manage fans, I can underclock my GPU with Powerupp, but overclocking doesn't work for me using this tool either. To make it simple, when I enter a value higher than the original value in Gfx clock frequency (MHz), for example, from 1750MHz to 1760MHz, when I validate, the modification has been taken into account, but when I do a test via CoreCTRL using the "advanced performance" mode or when I launch a game, the clock frequency is in fact always 1750MHz and not 1760Mhz. To change the voltage, under Powerupp, this point seems to work. For overclocking, obviously, something is blocking me from increasing the clock frequencies.

Problem with Lutris and nvidia drivers

I installed Lutris on Linux Mint but it say i have outdated nvidia driver. My driver is nvidia 390 and it says i have to install nvidia 450, but my GPU is not supported. My card is NVIDIA Quadro 1000M and it's not in the list of supported devices. Does that mean i can't use Lutris?

How can I get Mesa's Iris driver to work fine on my Intel iGPU?

So... this is something I don't have high hopes for. Sadly, I have to use Intel HD 4000 graphics for gaming because no money, and they have a ton of issues in some games, specially in Linux. Thankfully they have experimental Vulkan support here, so I can take advantage of a lot of translation layers that rely on Vulkan almost entirely, and a bit of an FPS boost in some instances.

The ammount of times I saw people saying "this game works perfectly fine with proton/natively" or whatever and then I boot it up and encounter game breaking bugs is too much. Examples:

  • Insurgency has black halos around fire effects basically blinding the entire screen and making gameplay really annoying.
  • Dirt Rally refuses to start, at all.
  • Black Mesa has a ton of completely black parts making it really hard to see and generally unplayable.
  • Alien Isolation can only render characters... which leads to great FPS, but a completely black screen.
  • And now, Worms Mayhem works perfectly out of the box.... but entities (crates, life boxes, tool boxes... and most importantly, the worms themselves) are invisible...

That is an incomplete list of games that gave me trouble and I confirmed are caused because of this shitty iGPU, but there's a lot more I have suspicions could be caused because of it too.

So, while researching the latest error in the iGPU mess saga, the Worms Mayhem one, I came accross a proposed solution workaround. If I tell mesa to use the iris driver with this command before startup: MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=iris %command% then I can see the worms in-game, which is great.

This got me thinking if it could resolve a lot of the other issues I've been having with other games... however, before I can even consider trying them, I have to solve another issue. The iris drivers suck ass for performance.

Without the override I was getting constant 60 FPS on Worms Mayhem, but with the iris drivers I get 10... the game is playable from a visual standpoint, but not from a performance one, fucking great.

So, is there any hope for me? What can I do to make these drivers work fine on my iGPU? I'd greatly appreciate any insight on the issue that could help me have a more pleasant experience, thanks.

Here is a list of my full specs: https://pastebin.com/yWmXTxME

Can't use mouse and keyboard (WASD) controls in 'Among Us' using WINE

Prevent java windows from closing immediately after being opened

Hi, I know this is not completely gaming related, but I figured some of you may have an idea on how to solve this problem. I successfully installed with Wine (version 5.16, 64-bit) on my Linux machine an analysis software (FlowJo 10) built for Windows. There are menu windows which open when triggered with a left click. I think the original design for these menus are such that when a follow up click is detected outside of the menu area, they would close (a pretty common behavior for other windows). Now, whenever I click and open these menu, they immeidately close right after. I can see that that they are opened, but they just close right away as if I followed up with another click. Is there anyway to prevent that from happening? I cannot interact at all with the contents of the menu. I imagine this is a common problem for other Windows apps installed with Wine as well.

The 1.5 update for Flufftopia is out now :D Cute idle game with Linux support since 2018 :)

Hey there :D

Our game Flufftopia got recently an update and is now on the 1.5 - this will be the last update for a while because I want to port the game to Godot first and I'm focused on my game Bring Back The Sun and other projects at the moment!

Flufftopia is a cute and short little idle game with a story - there are two endings and it is available in English, Spanish and German! Also, I put it on sale and it's only 1.25$ :)

It supported Linux since almost 2 years and I won't drop the support in the future! (I'm working on MX Linux, so testing is easy :D)


You can also watch the trailer here: https://youtu.be/ULtaQljxh7E

Important: If you have bought the huge Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality on Itch, you already have the game! Maybe check it out :D

Introducing Vircadia, an Open Source desktop and VR metaverse

Greetings! I'm a member of the Vircadia team, and we've been doing a lot of work to get it ready for a public release, and think we've reached the point where we're ready to invite other people in. It wasn't a secret that we were working on it, but until now we haven't tried to actively spread the word about it. We've decided to start with /r/linux since currently we're targeting the more technically minded users.

Since this may be a new concept for some people, I'll do my best to explain what this is all about.

What is it?

We call it a "metaverse", a virtual shared space. You can think of it as a 3D chat with scripting capabilities and no fixed purpose. If you've seen Second Life, VR Chat, or NeosVR, it's a similar concept.

Just like Reddit provides a base for almost anything people might want to share or discuss with each other, from looking at cute pictures of cats to debating philosophy, so do we provide a base for anything you might want to create in a 3D multi-user environment.

Here are some screenshots

Where did it come from?

Philip Rosedale, the founder of Linden Lab (the makers of Second Life) left the company some years ago and formed High Fidelity, a spiritual successor. After several years of work and several pivots, High Fidelity failed to achieve success, and shut down in January. The company still exists, and started a new project that confusingly kept the same name, despite being extremely different.

Fortunately, their original work was fully Open Source, so the community picked it up and continued development. The initial community project was known as "Project Athena". Later we rebranded ourselves and became Vircadia.

We believe that the core technology is excellent and that the original company's failure to succeed is mostly due to bad decisions and bad timing (they shut down just before COVID-19 struck, and this kind of tech got a renewed interest).

We're not just keeping it alive but actively continuing development. We have a busy GitHub, regular in-world dev meetings and lots of cool new functionality already done, and more being worked on

What makes it special?

  • Excellent Linux support. We have developers (I am one) that work primarily on Linux, and have ensured that it's very easy to compile. We even support VR on Linux.
  • Open Source, under the Apache License 2.0.
  • Portable. We support Linux, Windows, OSX and Android (experimental).
  • Decentralized. There's no required central server -- you can deploy this on a computer without internet access, and the servers don't form part of a grid. You can jump to any server whose address you know.
  • Distributed. The system is made of multiple processes that can be spread among multiple servers if needed, allowing large amounts of users in a single environment (hundreds). The code is heavily multithreaded and takes great advantage of modern multi-core CPUs. Assets are hosted on HTTP.
  • Extremely scriptable. Scripts are written in JavaScript. We have documentation.
  • VR support with full body tracking and eye tracking. We have very experimental support for the Oculus Quest.
  • Unrestricted. Unlike for instance Second Life, we place pretty much no limits on anything. You can have all the space you want, and all textures, objects and scripts your hardware can take.

What's the status?

We'd say it's somewhere around an early beta. The software is functional, usable and stable, and all the core functionality is there, but there's a lot of polish that still could be done to make it into something better. There's plenty to work on, so come and join the fun :-)

What is it good for?

We use it for socializing, holding meetings, making games and watching movies. It's a general purpose environment, so it's not restricted to those things.

Join us!

Download our client. A VR headset is supported, but not required. A decent microphone is highly recommended.

We have an AppImage so it should run on almost anything. You can also try compiling it with our handy build script

We hang out in Discord, at: https://discord.gg/qfmNqMc

We also hold regular meetings, see our calendar. You will need to use the client to get to those. There will be a development meeting followed by a community meeting tomorrow, which is a perfect time to meet the community and ask any questions.

I'll be around to answer any questions and help with any trouble. Please tell me if you have any issues getting it to work.

The Original Dead Space and Bad Performance

Hello! I was wondering if someone could help me with this. I bought Dead Space 1 and 2 on sale recently and specifically DS1 is running very slowly. When I launch the game with default proton I get about 8 fps. I tried disabling esync/fsync but that did nothing. I tried wined3d and that got me to like 25 fps which is, of course, very far from playable (I disabled vsync too). As for comparison, Dead Space 2 runs perfectly at over 200 fps on this machine (ryzen 1700 3.3 ghz, geforce 1070). I tried older versions of proton but that doesn't seem to help. Any other ideas? I'm quite stumped. Thanks for any help.

FIFA 21?

Anyone have any idea how to get fifa 21 to run through steam? The issue I am currently running into is that steam launches origin via proton when launching the game. However origin cannot see that the game was installed. My best guess is that somehow there has to be a way to install the game in a place with the virtualized origin can see it? Any help would be dope!

Interested in experiences with new AMD GPU launches + Linux

Hi all,

I've been waiting anxiously see what AMD has in store for us with their new "Big Navi" GPUs. I'm currently running a Nvidia GTX 2070 (non-Super) that has a hard time keeping up with VR games. It appears that Valve is focusing more attention on AMD GPUs when it comes to Steam VR (async reprojection support, etc.).

When I bought the 2070 I was trying to get an eGPU setup working with a laptop and AMD cards seemed to have some problems with this scenario. Since then I've setup a dedicated gaming desktop and I would prefer to not have to deal with Nvidia's proprietary driver.

I switched over to Arch full time a few months ago so I will be running a very fresh kernel by the time I'm able to get my hands on one of the new AMD GPUs.

My question is about other people's experiences with new AMD GPUs and Linux. One thing about Nvidia is that they typically do a great job of supporting their new GPUs on Linux (albeit through the proprietary driver). I've read some horror stories regarding the "Navi" cards (5700xt, etc.). Is this widespread? Should I expect to have stability problems until next spring? It's a pretty big investment for me so I'd like to go into it with my eyes open.

Thanks for any insight you can provide!

For gaming &amp; Productivity. use Xubuntu. Here's why.

Xubuntu (XFCE)
no chunky animations ,never lose that 0.2 seconds of your life watching animations.

Low ram usage & cpu usage. Extra fps?

Customizable like gnome, and no risk of getting errors, see why..

-> If you have ubuntu and open "logs" you will probabily face tons of spamming logs errors, which indicate that a process is trying to do the same thing alot of times and its wasting your cpu resources.
Mostly that errors are caused by gnome shell and its extensions.

fast alt tab so if you mom is watching you just swuup.
Why Xfce is so better?
You can get old extensions like 4 years ago and it will STILL WORK!
You can run your own extension by .sh script, just copy from someone and change it as you want (CPU usage, GPU USAGE, temp, fan, etc in the panel bar!)

You don't need dash to dock. Xfce comes with that functionality by DEFAULT.

just unlock the panel and put it . You can have multiple panels if you want lol.

You can choose between window grouping or not.

Xfce works with X2Go Server. Your mom's pc is shi***? use thinClient and let her use your PC in a separate session.

Kde and gnome is good for getting youtube views, but for compatibility and daily driver, I'm sure xfce is much more stable.

Xbox wired controller not working with half my games

I used to be able to play games like dirt rally and shadow of mordor with my PDP xbox controller fine but now it doesn't work, some games like war thunder and astroneer still work. I've tried enabling and disabling xbox controller and generic controller support with no luck. I have also tried using proton with several versions. I am using kubuntu (ubuntu) 18.04.5 and as far as I can tell have the latest drivers. I've even tried completely reinstalling the games and steam itself with no luck... please get this seen, dirt rally is impossible with keyboard.

Edit: i'm not very good with ubuntu so if you could be clear when explaining my issue.

Is my CPU dying? Games terribly slow!

Hello everyone,

I would love to get some help/advice from you guys, because I am starting to become quite a bit desperate.

TL;DR: Got a sorta good but aged pc which cannot run resource-intensive stuff since some time. It is not the RAM (memtest86 said its fine), its not wrong drivers (according to Lutris, running nvidia drivers). I suspect it's the CPU but dont know how to test its sanity apart from "htop" on a game to see its load, which I did and which showed ridiculous load for "Children of Morta", "Hyper Light Drifter" and "Rogue Legacy".

I'm on a i7 4770k, 16GB Ram, GeForce GTX 1050ti, ~500GB SSD, running EndeavourOS (Arch derivate). I own the pc since about 7 years, a bit more, a bit less maybe. I upgraded my machine with ram and the graphics card after running the internal GPU for a while (I bought 16gb and replaced the old, just to be sure).

Since maybe 3 months, I am starting to notice weird problems which I struggled to locate. I notice that my "everyday" pc usage has been slowed down quite a bit, which I first attributed to the tiling WM I use (exwm). But I recently bought a game which I should be able to run without significant problems (Children of Morta), and it runs so slowly that I cant do anything. Since this game is at the borders of being "too much" for my CPU, I was like "yeah well, need a new pc for that I guess". But then, I started to notice said behaviour with other, considerably less resource-intensive games like "Hyper Light Drifter" and "Rogue Legacy".

Suspecting the RAM, I ran memtest86 last night, but this showed no errors. I suspected it's because I'm on the wrong graphics drivers, so I re-read the Arch wiki and checked what was necessary to find out if I got everything set up correctly (which it was). Also, Lutris says I'm using Nvidia drivers, not nouveau.

Then, this morning, I checked the CPU load when running Children of Morta using "htop" and was surprised that - even when only load the intro - the CPU load was at 100% for all cores at all times. I have not checked yet, but I am quite certain I will find a similar behaviour even for the less resource intensive games like Hyper Light Drifter or Rogue Legacy.

Is there some sanity checks that I can use apart from what I have done to ensure my CPU is it good shape - or is, indeed, NOT in good shape? If so, is there any repair-ish stuff I can do?

Thanks a bunch for any tip or advice you have to offer. Also, if you think I am totally on the wrong subreddit for such a question, dont hesitate to tell me. I chose linux_gaming over linux because it is mostly related to games that I noticed strange stuff happening. Finally, if you need any logs or command output, please tell me and I will provide :)

Have a good day, folks!

Is emulation of a joystick with keyboard possible?

As the title says, is there some way of emulating a xbox 360 or ds3/ds4 controller with the keyboard in Linux?

In Windows there's a tool called UCR (Universal Keyboard Remapper) that allows you to recognize one or several keyboards as joysticks. Is there anything similar to this in Linux?

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Directors Cut Missing Audio including Dialogue

Hey guys,

Manjaro KDE Nvidia GTX 1070 AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 16 GB RAM


I have tried: Proton 5.0-9, 4.11-13 and 5.9-GE-7-ST


Using a BEHRINGER UMC204HD 192k with Beyerdynamic DT 880 if that helps.


I'm brand new to linux gaming and saw on protonDB that under the "not whitelisted yet, but have received many Platinum reports" list, Deus Ex: Human Revolution ranked pretty high.


Since that was a game I knew ran well on my windows install, I mounted the drive I had it installed under and just copied the files into my Manjaro's steamapps/common folder and clicked install. It recognized the files and installed. When I launch it, things seem to run smooth, however, I seem to be missing audio. There is no audio in cutscenes and dialog has this weird dampened sound where I don't hear any dialog from the played and I only hear dialog clearly from NPCs if I turn the opposite way of them.


Any ideas?

Help running Battlefield 4 (on origin via lutris)?

Recently I installed Battlefield 4 via the default lutris installer: https://lutris.net/games/battlefield-4/

The game mostly runs alright, with a high framerate and such, however, I've noticed there are constant short freezes every 5 or 6 seconds, not making the game "unplayable", but definitely making it much more difficult to play than it should be.

Below is an image with my system information:


I'm playing the game with DXVK 1.7.1 and the wine version lutris-5.7-10-x86_64, as well as with Esync on.

Is anyone else familiar with this kind of an issue (with this game specifically) and how to get rid of freezes?

RX580 horrible performance

I'm a complete noob to Linux, and this sort of topic is completely unfamiliar to me. I have read multiple reports of people having problems with the RX580, but none of the solutions I could find work for me.

I've joined the Linux world not too long ago because of its open nature, privacy benefits, and customization. I don't tend to game a whole lot. When I do, it's mostly because of friends wanting a teammate to join in. However, a game I play regularly is Minecraft.

I use OptiFine to run shaders with Minecraft. I used to use Windows, and I had very few troubles trying to run them. I was usually able to get around 80-110 fps using Sildur's Vibrant Shaders. This is running at 2k. I was pretty impressed with the performance of this old budget card. The drivers I used on Windows were downloaded straight from AMD.

As I stated before, I moved over to Linux not too long ago. I first started using Pop!_OS. One thing I noticed immediately was that my Minecraft performance was incredible. I was getting 130-160 fps on the same shaders, settings, world, and everything as Windows.

Later on, I tried Manjaro, as I wanted to experience an Arch-based rolling release distro. I had several major frame drops, which never occurred on Pop. The longer I used Manjaro, the worse my performance got. Even without using shaders, I was getting 30-80 fps. That's a BIG yikes. I assumed the Manjaro hardware wizard screwed something up because I didn't touch the drivers. Note: I used Manjaro longer than I used my initial Pop installation.

I moved back to Pop!_OS and was enjoying the same high fps I got when I installed it like last time. I even installed the Xanmod kernel and I noticed a very slight improvement, too. Here's where things get weird. The longer I used Pop!_OS, the worse my framerate got. I'm now struggling to get above 80 fps. Usually, I sit around 50 with shaders. Again, this is with the same Minecraft settings. I copied over my .minecraft folder. However, unlike Manjaro, my performance without shaders is optimal for me.

I returned to Windows to check and see if my graphics card is degrading, and the performance was the same as it was before!

What in the world is going on? I'm really disappointed at the moment. I'm receiving better performance on Windows than on Linux. I've tried two heavily different distros and had the same issue. I'm pretty sure this has to do with the amdgpu driver. I don't know what else could be causing issues.

I'm sure some may say "just play without shaders!" I could, but I want to use this computer for 3D modeling someday, and I can't with its current graphical performance.

Note: I have both Windows and Linux, separated on separate drives. I don't like booting into Windows because it's on an extremely slow HHD. I have Windows merely as a backup for if my Linux system breaks. One last thing to mention is that I installed the amdgpu pro drivers and I noticed almost equivalent performance to Windows. However, using that driver causes screen tearing issues, so I reverted back to the stock driver that came with Pop!_OS.

nvidia-smi does not show power usage!!!

I have an Optimus setup, I want to figure out the power consumption when using the Intel and when running an app with the nvidia GPUbut sadly, when I run nvidia-smi, power consuption is N/A.

Is there anyway I can measure the power consumption ?

10/09/2020 00:46:25 CEST

Optimus laptop owners, how much power does your Nvidia card consumes when it is on the on-demand profile ?

when the Intel GPU is active, how much power does your laptop consume as reported by nvidia-smi ?

when you run a program using the Nvidia GPU , how much power does your laptop consume as reported by nvidia-smi ?

State of Torchlight 3 before Final Release

Ok, I'm not here to bash the game or something. Just facts.

As of today, Torchlight 3 is Borked on Linux, not because it can't run, actually it installs and runs correctly but, there's an error about "No platform available":


The game may not ever work on Linux since multiplayer characters are stored in the Echtra servers. They stated single player characters are local and can be played offline but the game still relies on Steam online services anyway.

In a chat with the developers, on their discord server, I explicitly asked about Linux support and they stated: "it has not been talked yet", there are other priorities post launch but it could be considered, depending on "demand" and "IF" the game becomes really popular on PC. The same applies for mod support (I also asked about it). They even said one of the company founding members is a huge Linux fan and making his own OS. But right now, they are trying to make the launch as smooth as possible on consoles. And certainly they would like to put the game on the majority of possible platforms available, but depends on its success.

It's obvious, it should not surprise us. I mean, after all, Echtra is a small company and everything comes down to money. Development costs money...

On the other hand, I've tried Torchlight 3 on Windows, 15 hours and counting and finished ACT 1 so far. I don't want to destroy the game since I've been a huge TL1 and 2 fan but it's impossible not to say it is a downgrade. The game in its Early Access state was improved beyond what people reported was bad a long time ago. It's a different game, it is more polished, there are still some bugs here and there but they are being reported and patched right away.

Anyway. What people say is true. Skill trees are simplified, map design is simplistic, there are no secondary quests, there is "NO FISHING", weapons don't feel rewarding (I've only received 2 legendaries from 2 quests rewards and they sucked). Rewards are...meh... I've gotten a lot of decorations for my Fort though... ' . The Fort is like a Fortnite Save The world Homebase that can be customized.

I don't want to go on... I'll keep playing until I finish my Railmaster character and probably gonna call it. The game right now is finished. They are only patching bugs and basically this is the game that is gonna get out of Early Access at 40 bucks.

There is more post-launch content planned they said, probably another Act (there are 3 now). Well... I guess we will have to wait and see.

Just wanted to share with you guys.

Cloudsaves for games outside of steam? (gog, epic, uplay, origin etc.)

Most likely a very noob question, but i searched r/linux_gaming and did not come across that question in particular. Basically, is there any working, automatic solution for savegames outside of steam?

I thought that i could maybe run gog, epic and the rest through lutris, have those upload and download my saves to the cloud, and then use either lutris or steam's proton for playing the actual game, but for once, those launcher's don't seem to work properly at all (at least with the default installations that lutris provides); and then this whole idea sounds very janky to begin with.

So, does anyone have experience with this? Or is it just the norm to manage ones saves manually?

  • No Nvidia because proprietary drivers needed for optimal performance.

Use cases

  • Gaming(duh)

How can I install Windows Steam on my MBP Mid-2012 thats stuck on Sierra?

I tried to install the Windows version of steam on my Mac a while ago, which looked like it worked, but the problem was this: Upon logging into my Steam account, Wine crashes for some critical reason (I dont have the error log, I can try to install it like I did and grab the log from there). Is it because Steam is already logged on with my Mac client or is it because Im on 10.12.6?

A couple years ago I tried it and it worked just fine, but I think they changed the installer from .msi to .exe, but Im no developer so I dont know.

Proton DXVK and/or Vulkan Games Don't Work or Crash for Linux (Works Fine on Windows?)

A while ago, I was on Manjaro and everything worked fine; then I updated my kernel to 5.8 and my nVidia driver from 440.xx to 450.66 and certain things stopped working as expected.

(Note: This will persist.)

First, Blender stopped rendering Eevee viewports without slowing down my entire system to a crawl (on a 2080 Ti); then, native Vulkan games wouldn't launch properly (Serious Sam 2017), then, I noticed that DXVK straight up refused to work for any game in Proton (or in some cases crash some games (Darksburg).

However, whenever I run a DirectX/Direct3D game through WineD3D instead, then it works (albeit probably not as wonderfully as otherwise). At first, I thought this might just be Manjaro or that particular install, so I rolled back both my kernel and nVidia driver and it didn't work. Then, I reinstalled Manjaro from scratch. Still happens. Then I moved to Fedora 32, and it still happens.

But then, when I load Windows on a separate drive with the latest nVidia driver, Blender and DirectX itself (I did this a week ago) and had no issue.

I also tried submitting this to Blender's dev forum but, so far, this hasn't helped.

Considering that this also affect Proton/DXVK and even native Vulkan games, for me, I figured asking here should probably be the next step in figuring out what to do about all of this...

New dualshock 4 controller (wired connection) causing issues.

It worked fine for a bit, except for the fact that when I plug it in it changes my audio output which was annoying. Then it randomly decided to disconnect and change my audio.

Eventually I seem to have figured out a bit of a pattern, if I touch the touch pad at all it turns yellow and does this.

Must be a driver issue? Not using steam currently, just lutris but even in gnome I just tried to use the touch pad to test to see if it caused issues outside of games and to no surprise the same thing happened.

basically as the title says, ive followed the steps in this guide up till the step that says "Install the remaining deps. The wiki guide is out of date.

Id like to know if theres any way to share a gpu beetwen th host machine and the guest (windows), so I can get nice GPU performance without doing the passthrough.

Ive been researching and I found something about vGPU from nVidia and somethinf about SR-IOV, but the latter was only used for network cards (at least what i found).

My build is a Ryzen 5 2600, GTX1650 and 16GB of RAM.

Proton Problems

Hello everyone,

I have gotten frustrated by some of the Proton setup guides. They all show just clicking a few buttons and games working. That hasn't been my case. I'm running Manjaro with an AMD 390x. I think I'm having issues with my video cards not really supporting Vulkan. If someone could confirm that would be great.

What monetization method do you prefer for a casual, medium-length indie game?

Let's assume there's a game that is probably marketed at $9.99, looks like you could get anywhere from 5-50 hours of enjoyment from it depending if you like it enough.

Maybe a fun game to play in between queues of league of legends for a few minutes. Or play casually with co-op friends on a weekend. Nothing special about it.

Would you prefer:

  • Straight $9.99 with casual updates, and maybe a DLC in 6 months -> year?
    • Or even 4.99 or less?
  • Free game, but micro-transactions for cosmetics, or to unlock portions of the game (like multiplayer)?
  • An X (2?) hour demo, and then a full price game?
  • A $15 game that is very regularly discounted to below $10 so if you wait you'll get it at a good deal, but then those that can't wait pick up the "slack" in terms of cost?
  • A free game, and then a "sequel" that costs actual money?
  • A free game, but DLC costs money?
  • A "pay what you want" price model like with Itch.io or sell sound track / assets as the $9.99?
  • Or anything in between

What are your thoughts for such a linux game?

10/07/2020 15:36:21 CEST

Nvidia Drivers 455.28 Released


Added support for the following GPUs: GeForce RTX 3080 GeForce RTX 3090 GeForce MX450 Fixed a bug that caused X to crash when the NVIDIA RandR provider was disabled while using an NVIDIA-driven display as a PRIME Display Offload sink. Moved layout configuration of SLI Mosaic displays in nvidia-settings from its own dedicated page to a dialog available on the X Server Display Configuration page. Fixed a bug that prevented 8K displays from being used in portrait orientation on Pascal and earlier GPUs. Fixed a bug which caused excessive CPU usage in Vulkan applications which create a large number of VkFence objects. This was particularly prevalent in the Steam Play title Red Dead Redemption 2. Added support for a new device-local VkMemoryType which is host-coherent and host-visible. This may result in improved performance in some applications. Applications which are known to benefit from this new VkMemoryType include: DXVK Title DiRT Rally 2.0, Steam Play Title DOOM: Eternal, and DXVK title World of Warcraft. Fixed a bug that caused WebKit-based applications to crash when running on Wayland. Fixed a bug that led to display corruption at some resolutions when using an NVIDIA-driven display as a PRIME Display Offload sink. Fixed a bug in a SPIR-V optimization that may cause conditional blocks to not execute. Fixed a bug where calls to vkGetRandROutputDisplayEXT with unexpected inputs would generate X11 protocol errors. (https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49407) Fixed a small memory leak during exit of the NVIDIA EGL driver. Implemented support for the NVIDIA NGX Updater. See the "NGX" chapter in the README for information on how to configure this feature. Removed support for the SLI modes "SFR", "AFR", and "AA". SLI Mosaic, Base Mosaic, GL_NV_gpu_multicast, and GLX_NV_multigpu_context are still supported. Updated Base Mosaic support on GeForce to allow a maximum of five simultaneous displays, rather than three. Fixed several synchronization bugs that could momentarily lock up the X server when moving/resizing/focusing OpenGL and Vulkan windows when PRIME Sync was enabled. Added NVIDIA VDPAU driver support for decoding VP9 10- and 12-bit bitstreams.Note that VDPAU's presentation pipeline and OpenGL-VDPAU interop does not support 10- and 12-bit video surfaces yet. See the "VDPAU Support" appendix in the README for supported decoder profiles. Fixed a bug that could cause dual-link DVI to be driven over a connector that only supports single-link DVI, when "NoMaxPClkCheck" is specified in the "ModeValidation" X configuration option. Note this fix may cause behavioral changes for configurations using this option. Fixed a bug where glGetGraphicsResetStatusARB would incorrectly return GL_PURGED_CONTEXT_RESET_NV immediately after application start-up if the system had previously been suspended. Fixed a regression that allowed displays to enter DPMS mode even when DPMS is disabled in the X server settings. Updated nvidia-settings to allow continued interaction with other pages and help content while editing application profiles.

Rocksmith 2014 Remastered + Focusrite Solo 2i2(USB) + Microphone Mode

Tutorial to use microphone input in audio USB interfaces like focusrite.

  1. Audio set to alsa (install alsa drivers, check ubuntu logs if its running or not when you start rocksmith)
  2. WINEPREFIX=~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/221680/pfx winetricks sound=alsa (this will set to alsa)
  3. WINEPREFIX=~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/221680/pfx winecfg

go to audio -> select your audio input/output correctly.

4) Go to rocksmith.ini inside your game folder and put exclusivity mode = 0, and win32Ultralatency = 0

Go to rocksmith check mic inputs and you will see "DEFAULT" which will be your mic. WORKS FINE

Not going to windows near soon.

I Hope it helps :D

[The Sims 3] [Steam] Slow loading and no screenshots

This is kind of two issues (curiosities).

  1. If I load the game regularly through Steam, the loading takes up way more time than if I right-click the icon on the desktop and launch through The Sims Launcher. Why is that? When it launches without Steam, it runs just as smoothly, but the loading time is painfully slow. Also it appears that these two ways of launching have different save locations? I put mods in the Steam folders, they show up in-game, but not if I launch it directly through the launcher. Also the worlds and save files show up differently, as if it was two different installations.

  2. Now not matter the way I launched the game, when I press 'C' in-game to take a screenshot, it doesn't save anywhere even though the game says it did. Where am I supposed to find the screenshots? Or should I only take them with F12 through Steam?

Thank you in advance :)

I Need 2080 Ti 1440p Benchmarks For Comparison

So, after a week and a half of using the RTX 3090 on Linux, I'm starting to get the sense (at list an inkling) that the "reduced performance jump at 1440p vs 4K" situation isn't the same on Linux as it is on Windows. Any of you that have seen the 30 series benchmarks at 1080p, 1440p, and 4K will know that at 1440p the 3090 is demonstrably faster than the 2080 Ti, but not by anywhere NEAR as much as it is at 4K, which a lot of people seem to think is a CPU bottleneck issue.

But on Linux, I'm seeing framerates that seem like they're not losing anything at 1440p as far as relative performance vs the 2080 Ti is concerned. So, I was hoping some of you out there with 2080 Tis might be able to get me some benchmarks so we can compare and see if what the situation is. Especially since that might help any prospective buyers of 30 series cards in making their decision.

Games with built-in benchmarks are ideal since capturing with MangoHud, while awesome, is a bit less standardized, though I'd be cool with MangoHud benchmarks too.

Games that I think would be good to test are Shadow of the Tomb Raider (great built-in benchmark), Tomb Raider 2013, Hitman 2, Borderlands 3, World War Z using Vulkan (again, it has a good built-in benchmark), and GTA V, and then as far as games without built-in benchmarks, Battlefield 1, Battlefield V, Control, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, Star Wars Battlefront II would all be good ones. Unigine Heaven and BaseMark are two other options I think would be good to check. Overwatch as well.

I currently own all of those games, but I'm not opposed to purchasing games if they are good for benchmarking so we can compare, so I'm open to suggestions.

I own other demanding titles like Watch Dogs 2, but those and the rest of my demanding titles don't seem very good for standardized benchmarks at least in my opinion.

If you don't feel like capturing actual benchmark runs but you have a 2080 Ti and play any of those games, feel free to just give me a ballpark of what fps you get on average, or maybe just a range of fps you experience.

I feel like this could also be a big help for those of us that are eyeing Big Navi. Since Michael from Phoronix doesn't have any 30-series cards, we should do the comparisons ourselves.

I think on my post from the other day someone mentioned having a 3080 running on Linux, so it'd be awesome if they can contribute too. I'll try to find their name and tag them if I find it.

Hey folks!

I really want to buy this game, because I'm a big D&D fan.

It's only available for Win and Mac (not surprising, seeing the engine and former games on it). Those games all ran very fine with WINE/Proton.

Still, maybe someone already got it and can confirm that it runs fine on Linux :) Just want to be sure before paying the big price.

Two of my favourite games are $1 right now: Nidhogg and Stick Fight are some of the best fun I've had with friends, and they both run perfectly on Proton. For a few dollars more you get the excellent Linux native Overgrowth as well! (Not sponsored. I just love these games!)

Pro controller support outside of steam

Im using manjaro and the controller is wired

I cant seem to use my switch pro controller outside of steam. When using steam, it works perfectly, but On retroarch the controller is recognized but no inputs work. Im assuming its a driver issue, but is there any way to fix it?

ubuntu only shows a video signal when the bios is set to integrated graphics

pretty much just the title. if i set my bios to dedicated gpu, it will show the post codes, bios flash, and then the screen just turns off. if i set my bios to integrated graphics, i see nothing for a few seconds and then the ubuntu login. i am using a nvidia gtx 1060 3gb, core i5 4440, nvidia driver 450, ubuntu 20.04, and my monitor is plugged directly to my gpu.

Before my new game is released on Steam, I will sell it on Itch only for Linux! Right Before Release Access :D

Hey guys,

after several games published on Itch, I decided to do the next step: Steam!

All of the games that I released at SmokeSomeFrogs have Linux support. Sometimes it took months after the release but this time, I won't only publish it on the same day as the Windows version.

This time, I will publish the Linux version before the Windows version :)

The Right Before Release Access version is almost finished. Until the 1.0 version I will add more sounds, a bit more polish, more settings, localize it in many more languages and correct mistakes. The game is playable from start to finish!


Bring Back the Sun is a short and challenging 2D Platformer. The goal is obvious - bring back the sun! No enemys, no spikes, just jumping above the bottomless pit.


  • A pure experience
  • Challenging but not hardcore
  • Jump through 40 levels
  • Loading in no time
  • Minimalistic graphics
  • Atmospheric soundtrack

The game was made with Godot and on MX Linux! It was great to move most of the development from Windows to Gnu/Linux :)

The game will cost 3$ at release but this Right Before Release Access will only cost you 1.5$.

You can get the game now: https://smokesomefrogs.itch.io/bring-back-the-sun

Or wishlist it on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1437210/Bring_Back_The_Sun_by_Daniel_da_Silva/

Thanks for the support through all the years :) If you don't feel like buying a game today check out my free games :D

Edit: Removed blank spaces :D

X-Plane 11 (Demo) not starting with Vulkan with RADV or AMDVLK

It worked before, but not after the latest patch. When I start the game, it will immediately open a crash report window and next time it automatically falls back to OpenGL. This happens with both AMDVLK and RADV (also with or without mesa-git) on my RX580 on Manjaro. In the terminal it prints WARNING: unable to set v-sync; glXSwapIntervalSGI returned the error 6 but it does that in OpenGL as well, and the log file doesn't have a lot of useful information either:


I just reinstalled the entire game and it made no difference unsurprisingly.

Failed to load libvulkan and doesn't start, when trying to run pillars of eternity (windows version) on wine

I didn't know that libvulkan was used for that? I am new to wine but I have installed windows version of pathfinder kingmaker and it works like a charm.

Pillars on the other hand just does the cursor spinner for a few seconds then fails.

When I tried running from the command line the full error is:

vulkan:wine Failed to load libvulkan.so.1
Failed to load wine graphics driver supporting vulkan.

I have an nvidia card btw. What to do next? I already have nvidia-utils installed which supposedly has the vulkan libraries for nvidia cards.

I know it is available for linux but I have been given the windows version so...wanna get it going via wine. Btw I saw a video on youtube where a guy is running pillars on wine so must be possible but no details of how the title/desc just says that it is running on wine.

Governor changed by Proton?

Hi! I recently noticed that using Proton my processor ran hotter than it should have. To be more specific, I started playing Project Cars and I noticed the processor going over 75 C - which is quite odd, considering I use to set the governor to "powersave" and that it stayed around 55 C when playing Monster Hunter: World.

I then checked and it seems like Proton is changing the governor when I play PCars. It is set to schedutil instead of powersave. I haven't found any information online regarding this. I did a few trials and I can confirm that the governor is only changed when I start the game, not before. What could this be? How can I prevent this change?

I am using KDE neon 5.19.5 with Linux kernel 5.8.13 Xanmod. Proton is at version 5.0-9.

Any distro out there that comes with everything required for browser Hardware Acceleration pre-installed and ready to go?

Most distros I know require the user to manually install VAAPI and other workarounds to enable Hardware Acceleration in the browser for site like Youtube and Twitch. (I don't even know what the whole process is, I tried one time and couldn't even finish it, it did not work in the end)
For Youtube, there's H264ify and that one helps a ton keeping CPU usage low, but when youtube Chat is enabled it becomes a CPU hog again.
(because you know... 2D graphics is too much for a 2GB GPU and 4-core CPU to handle... there's no way to not become sarcastic on this issue...)
For Twitch it's even worse, there's not much help. Enabling Hardware Acceleration hopefully helps with the issue.
Priority to Chromium. Firefox last resort.

SteamTinkerLaunch (stl) v2.2.2 - major. Proton Select and Download, Steam Compatibility Mode and much more

Another major release with tons of new features:

  • **use stl as Steam Compatibility Tool
    (can be easily set via command line: 'stl compat 'add|del|get'")
  • Proton Selection
    • all installed official and custom Proton Installs are autodetected and can be selected per game (or as default for all new game configs)
    • local Custom Proton builds can be easily added to the Proton Selector (via GUI and command line)
    • Download and install Custom Proton by simply
      selecting a package from an auto-generated dropdown menu or entering a direct download URL manually
  • added a Tray Icon
    with Right Click Menu and some initial Tray Icon Buttons
  • easily quit every (hanging) Proton Game via Tray Icon Buttons
  • restructured several Vortex options:
    • simplified the Script Extender check
    • by default the wine binary from the latest official Proton found is used
    • updated default vortex to v1.3.11
    • Vortex Stages are now stored in a separate list and have a Add Vortex Stage
      button in the Vortex menu
  • Steam Category Tweaks are optional now
  • tons of optimizations, cleanups
  • better dependency check on start, declare several internally used tools (including yad) no longer as optional (fixes #84 and #87)
  • fixed a stupid bug which prevented linux native games from starting - (fixes #90)
  • skip the "Start SteamVR" early on Stereo3d VR launch, when it is already running
  • removed RADV_PERFTEST option as aco finally is default and it is just an easy to add variable

But I wasn't sure how well 4k, high refresh rate screens are doing on Linux. I'm running Manjaro so I'm on recent kernels and mesa verions.

Has any body had any issues? Also lastly what's thoughts on 4k been worth it?

Marley - Many Awesome Linux Emulators, Yay!

Hi guys, I started with a new emulator bundle for Linux. It's for DYI machines and for the living room, so everything is detected automatically or preconfigured. The goal is to provide an easy and out-of-the-box experience for the casual retro gamer (with little to no configurations). It runs in parallel with existing emulators. I have planned Christmas as the release date and now I'm looking for some brave alpha-tester or maybe even fellow programmers to get it up-to-speed. The basic functions are there and I'm working on closing out some minor issues from the bug tracker. There's a build script for Arch and compile instructions for Ubuntu.

How do you prevent Nvidia drivers from updating on PopOS?

I am currently on 440.100 and everything runs perfectly for me. 455.23 downloaded and wants to install. I decided to give it a try and it completely rekt my installed games. DOTA runs below 30fps and this is unacceptable for me. I ran Timeshift to a previous back-up and reverted to 440.100 and all is back to normal. How do I prevent future download of Nvidia drivers? Also, how do I remove nvidia-driver-455 from the PopShop under the Installed tab? Apparently it's downloaded and ready to be installed but I am not interested in running this version.

Trying to get Haydee to work on Ubuntu 20.04

So, I recently got the game Haydee on sale from Steam and have been trying to get it to work with my Ubuntu system, but haven't been able to get past the main menu before it CTD. I've poked around, trying a few fixes but none of them worked for me. So I went to the Steam forums for the game and this was the conversation that followed. Error logs, and system details are in that link, if needed, I can repost them here.

So, any ideas for this problem? As far as I can tell most of the people who have persistent issues running this game on Linux are using Ubuntu, as can be seen here, as such that may end up pointing to a solution. Or not.

I'm pretty new the world of Linux, and I'm still getting used to some of the hiccups that occur when trying to run games designed for Windows outside of their natural environment, but am more than willing to make the effort.

Proton won't launch games, tried everything I found online but nothing works.

Hey guys, I'm on a chromebook running Debian.

I understand that the chromebook isn't exactly meant for gaming, but the casual games I tried to launch (fall guys, among us) won't launch. I looked online and tried the following things:

  1. I tried different proton versions (5.0-9, 4.11-13, 4.2-9) and I also checked the "force the use of a specific steam play compatibility tool" option under the game properties.
  2. I tried to "verify integrity of game files" under the game properties and it said that all the game files were successfully validated.
  3. I installed wine and winetricks. I then uninstalled steam and tried to install it using winetricks but that didn't work so I reinstalled the linux version of steam. Is there a different way to use wine?
  4. I tried deleting the specific game folder under /steamapps/compatdata/ and letting steam create a new folder for that specific game.
  5. On proton 5.0-9, I tried setting the game launch option to "PROTON_USE_WINED3D11=1 %command%".
  6. On one forum, it said to make sure python was installed. So I checked and I have python 3.7.3 installed.

I tried all of these for "fall guys" a few weeks ago and for "among us" a few days ago. For all of them, the game says that its "running" but the game screen never shows. I don't know if I can provide a "log" because the game never crashes. I read stuff about "vulkan" but that doesn't seem to be supported on chrome os. I also read stuff about "drivers" but I can't seem to understand what that means. Is there anything else that I can do to get proton to work?

Is there any tool for mapping a gaming keypad on Linux?

I have a Razer Tartarus v2, and Razer doesn't have any official drivers for Linux. There's no on-board memory either, so I can't just map it on Windows and use the same.

I've checked out the OpenRazer project and it only lets me set the lighting, not the actual keymaps. I know I can do it myself using Xmodmap or something similar, but I'd like to keep that as the last option.

I'm also used to having a different profile for every game, so it'd be nice to be able to do that as well.

Star Wars: Squadrons on Ubuntu, Steam

Hello guys, did anyone managed to make new Squadrons work through Steam? Yesterday, I bought the game, downloaded it and hit Play. The game loaded the little starting screen where it says something about easy anticheat, but after this window dissapeared, nothing started. Play button in Steam was now labeled "Stop", so clearly the Steam thought that it's working. I usually play through Lutris, but the game is not there yet. I had to reboot to windows to play, so you know, not a good time. Is there anything that I might be missing? I'm running Ubuntu 20.04. Thanks!

How to fix sluggish Fantasy Grounds in Linux proton/lutris

Thought I could share my little finding here. I bought FG some time ago and since I use linux almost exclusively, I was puzzled why my high-end PC couldn't run FG smoothly. Moving windows or throwing dices were sluggish and felt like a pain. Kinda anything felt.

Despite my configuring efforts, nothing changed until I by accident disabled DXVK and voil, sluggihsness was gone!

Therefore, disable DXVK in lutris and in Steam proton, set launch options "PROTON_USE_WINED3D11=1 %command%"

Popping/clicking sound in VNs running under Wine
  • Manjaro KDE

  • Wine Staging 5.15

  • Realtek ALC887 (integrated)


Some games and VNs running under Wine have a very noticeable popping sound when playing music. On some notes in the music there is a pop, and it's super irritating, I don't really know how to fix that. Games in Proton (inside Steam) work fine.

What I tried:

  • tshed=0 (nothing)

  • PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 (nothing)

  • This video (didn't help)

  • Playing around with PA latency (helped me with some Proton games, but not in this case).

GPU keeps low clock

So I am on an Optimus laptop setup. I am running Debian 11. I use PRIME Render offload as a way to run programs with the NVIDIA card(the issue also persists with nvidia-xrun). One thing that annoys me is the low clock. I have NVIDIA 950M. On Windows the clock I get is the max boosted - 928 MHZ. On Linux for some reason I get exactly 231 MHZ even at full GPU utilisation. I am using the non free nvidia driver with version 450.66. The power mixer is set to maximum performance. Before I had better FPS. I don't know what exactly led to this issue tbh. The issue began like 1 month ago and I am hopelessly trying to find a fix. Pls help me guys. My Linux kernel version is The 5.9 kernel fails to apply some nvidia patch, so I can't install it. I will be happy if someone helps. Happy to provide any additional information. Cheers :)

New game for Linux?

Hello Reddit!

A few days ago I posted this question about some lack of strategy games for Linux : https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/j3xrln/is_there_a_good_open_source_grand_strategy_game/

Since there's still a lack of good titles and viable Paradox alternatives, I thought to maybe sketch out a concept of what I imagine would be cool to see one day on Linux:


Is just a concept I made in photoshop in a few minutes. I called it "alea iacta est", based on a famous Julius Caesar quote.

Basically I took the already existing interface of Triple A and expanded it with tabs for diplomacy, politics and economics, with the idea to finally see a more complex and interesting open source grand strategy. And maybe some interactions with the territory, like the possibility to manage cities, expand them with buildings and create units. Something in-between HoI and Supreme Ruler, without that level of complexity, but with similar potential for fun time.

It would be cool to have some core open source project like this, that can be further customizable with maps and elements from anyone, and I don't see anything like this currently available.

Things is, I'm a designer but I don't have any, any background as a developer, so I have no idea how to bring a good mockup to reality. I throw this concept to the wild, maybe can bring some sparkle to anyone interested enough to take this further..?

And maybe also to get some feedbacks, like knowing if anyone can be interested in grand strategy except me, or to know if is too much of a dream-project but too far from reality (again, not a developer, so for the Dunning-Kruger effect I have no actual idea of the task at hand)

Acer Nitro 5 AN515-44-R3XF for Linux gaming

Hello everyone, I was using old laptop for 10 years, played games at 25fps, now have an opportunity and will to buy a newer and more powerful one. I want to dual boot and play Linux games natively. Is Acer Nitro 5 AN515-44-R3XF good for Linux gaming? It has AMD Ryzen 5 3gHz, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4 GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM. Is this hardware Linux friendly?

PSA: For UE4 games over Wine/Proton, use "clocksource=tsc tsc=reliable", not "clocksource=hpet"

PSA: For UE4 games over Wine/Proton, use "clocksource=tsc tsc=reliable", not "clocksource=hpet"

A big thing I discovered is UE4 titles favor tsc as the clocksource rather than HPET. In fact, you could lose a ton of performance if your clocksource was HPET. Older processors without TSC as a clocksource suffer this the most.

On my 10920X, switching between TSC and HPET was the difference between 70fps and 10fps. It's that big of a difference.

It seems something about HPET as a clocksource severely negatively affects performance, acpi_pm, while also affected by a performance drop, doesn't do it as severely.

One note is DXVK queue submissions with HPET averages around 50+ with HPET, while tsc averages 10.

I don't have in depth knowledge as to why this happens, these were the results of my personal A/B test on my 10920X setup.

Discord Audio Issues While Running Steam Games

Whenever I play Moon Hunters on steam, my discord audio becomes extremely choppy and laggy, both input and output. i've tried tweaking pulse, reinstalling the game, reinstalling discord, running the game through steam play instead of native, none of which fix the issue. has anyone experienced something similar, and is there a fix?

i'm on ubuntu 20.04

Ubuntu 20 - Steam - Civ VI - CPU 90C

Hello everyone!

I hope I am not posting a duplicate post; I did some searches before deciding to post here.

Every time I play Civ VI via Steam on my Ubuntu PC, the CPU heats up to 90 degrees Celsius, and eventually either Steam crashes and closes, or the PC itself just turns off, and won't turn back on for several hours.

Here are my stats:

  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Intel Core i7-2700K CPU @ 3.50GHz 8
  • Radeon RX 580 Series (POLARIS10, DRM 3.35.0, 5.4.0-48-generic, LLVM 10.0.0)
  • I can't see the power supply info from the dmidecode --type 39 command, but I believe it is a 650 watt PSU from Corsair.

Any time I am doing other stuff without Steam open, I'm running between 30 and 40 C. When I start Steam and start playing Civ VI, it goes up to about 70-75 C. If I hide the window and do something else, for instance surf the web, then it shoots up to 90 C, and even if I close the web browser and go back to just Steam, it stays around 90 C and eventually does the crash or shutdown routine.

Any ideas? If I need to provide further command outputs, please let me know.

Steam Play and Discord Sound Issues

This issue is driving up a wall, and I can't find anything online that helps.

While most of the games I run through Steam Play work like a charm, one game in particular is giving trouble. if I play Moon Hunters while chatting with friends on Discord, my outgoing and incoming discord audio becomes extremely choppy and delayed, while the audio from the game runs smoothly. Additionally, audio from other apps like Firefox continues to operate as usual.

Has anyone else encountered this issue, and are there any known fixes?

edit: i'm on Ubuntu 20.04

GPU: Vega 8
RAM: 8GB (2x4)


OS: openSUSE Leap 15.2, all updates & patches have been installed
Kernel: 5.3.18
GPU Drivers: xf86-video-amdgpu 18.1.0

Steam Launch Options: gamemoderun RADV_PERFTEST=aco %command%
In-game graphics settings: all set to their highest and resolution is 1280x720.


Seriously, why does this subreddit doesn't support adding images to posts?
Anyway, I got into an new area in the game and the floor is missing, I can see through it. Textures glitched out or are not being loaded at all? All the other stuff is being rendered correctly. Game was working fine up-to this point. Is this a bug or a driver issue or what? I tried reloading a previous save, but the result is the same.
Thanks for any help. Much appreciated.

Newbie Steam-related questions

Hi! I've migrated from Windows 10 over to Ubuntu GamePack. I've been slowly getting acquainted with all of the inner workings of Linux, and in terms of emulators and source ports and general use programs like Discord, I've fully figured most of them out to the point of being comfortable enough to use them.

However, I've hit a bit of a snag when it comes to using Steam on Linux. There are two particular things that are bugging me, and both greatly hamper my enjoyment.

Firstly, I can't seem to find a way to install games onto one of my secondary HDDs. Steam does detect it and allows me to make a folder, but the games instantly close. This was originally formatted and used for Windows 10, so I figure it may be something regarding that. Games do load on my main SSD, but obviously I don't want to go shoving huge games onto it.

Secondly, performance is very hit and miss with Proton. I'm aware that with a compatibilty layer things won't be 1:1, but comparing what I see on ProtonDB and what I actually get, it makes me feel like I'm going insane. Games like Yakuza 0 that originally ran at 144FPS on my PC now struggle to maintain 60, which, while still playable, makes me feel downgraded. Serious Sam 2 (a game from like 1882) has insane framerate fluctuations, going from max to whatever in the span of seconds, making it really disorientating and distracting.

I was convinced that maybe it wasn't properly detecting my GPU, but given how it runs everything else (eg. Dolphin and pcsx2) seemingly fine, I'm at a loss. Are there drivers I'm missing? I hear a lot of mentions of "Mesa" but I have no clue what it really is, nor am I sure if it came pre-installed with my Distro or not.

Using Ryzen 5 3600 and Radeon RX 570.

Wireless headset support (and HeadsetControl)

The topic of wireless headsets has come up here in the past, and it seems like there is no obvious way to know if a particular headset will work in Linux. I don't see official support listed on product pages (e.g. Corsair or SteelSeries) so it ends up being an internet or Reddit search looking for anyone that uses it on Linux. In other words, someone had to just try it.

Are there any places to find a list of hardware that is known compatible or not? I think that would be useful to have, maybe just as a wiki page somewhere so user reports can be collected.

One thing I've found is the very useful utility HeadsetControl, which lists many of the major headsets as ones it can control sidetone volume, LEDs, volume, etc. So besides a handy tool, it indirectly gives a list of headsets that should work.

AMD Navi 5700xt Frequently Crashes System (Possible Fixes)

Hello all,

I had been struggling for the past week to play Overwatch on Linux using Lutris. It started fine, but after some time I started getting constant crashes when I would join a game. (I may have switched from 144hz to 60hz and that might have worked for awhile before I switched back to 144 - I tried so many things that I can't remember them all)

What shows up in my journalctl when it crashes

Oct 03 12:38:22 arch-desktop-nh kernel: [drm:amdgpu_dm_atomic_commit_tail [amdgpu]] *ERROR* Waiting for fences timed out!

Oct 03 12:38:23 arch-desktop-nh kernel: [drm:gfx_v10_0_hw_fini [amdgpu]] *ERROR* failed to halt cp gfx

Crash steps/info:
- Start Overwatch with lutris
- Join game
- Sometimes it would hang while choosing character, sometimes it would hang after running into a firefight
- Game hangs, audio continues - after ~10sec, screen goes black and then flashes back to Overwatch, but there are green artifact patterns all over the screen
- Mouse is visible and can move - switching to TTY2 allows me to log in
- If I wait long enough, I will eventually be brought to my SDDM login screen
- Some instances, I could reboot from TTY2 - but some would hang during shutdown and never finish. This may be related to how long I waited to reboot (if I did it after SDDM relaunched then it worked - I know that)

But, after searching through forum posts from 2014 to 2020 (apparently driver issues like this are quite common and have been around for awhile) I pieced some info together, I found one reddit post from last year stating that compiling mesa-git and llvm-git will make it work. I attempted to do this, but only managed to install mesa-git (+ lib32-mesa-git), since llvm was throwing a build error (missing file, I couldn't figure out why). Installing mesa-git also removed vulkan-radeon (as they conflict), but in the Lutris/Overwatch Git dependencies page, they mention that this is required.

It was also suggested to me to underclock my GPU a little bit to see if that would help at all. I attempted to last night, and played a game to test (on medium, it worked). NOTE: this was the first test after installing mesa-git, so I know that I needed to test things further.

This morning I tried playing a few games, with no underclocking active. I seem to have stability (for) now, and started ramping up the quality until I was at my computer's comfy limit.

TL:DR; mesa-git saved me from constant crashes. although it removed vulkan-radeon (which I thought was required). Overwatch is the only game I've known to crash my system like this

Alt-Tab System Use

I hope my flair is correct...

So I am one of those people who like to alt-tab out of games and do other stuff on their computer. Unfortunately on Linux this results in most of the remainder of the system operating in slideshow mode. Thanks to nVME storage, I can more comfortably suffer through closing and reopening the game to do other things, but I'd rather just stick to alt-tabbing. Some games are much worse than others so I know it is not specific to gaming but rather the engine used for that particular game in some way. Is there some sort of script or compositing or background rendering I can disable at a system level to allow all fullscreen 3D applications to play nicely when alt-tabbed away from?

Playing GTA5 using Proton on Ubuntu, graphics not what they should be

I used to have Windows 10 on this PC and when I did, GTA 5 with my setup on max graphics looked incredible. Of course you'd hear the graphics card turn on. Ubuntu is the only OS I have on here now, and GTA 5 runs smooth, but the graphics are not anywhere close to Max despite the settings being turned on max. My graphics card's fan is also not running.

If I play WoW classic using Wine and set the game to max settings, my graphics card will definitely turn on.

Does anyone have any ideas what's causing the issue?

How to definitely handle joystick support? x360ce doesn't work


I want to play some old PC games I have on my Arch distro but it seems like some of them actually handles joysticks with Wine, when the others doesn't. In example, Skyrim or OG Trackmania perfectly handles the joystick but games like LEGO Indiana Jones, Rayman Legends or Batman Arkham Asylum doesn't.

It's a pity because these games aren't very enjoyable to play with keyboard and mouse (except the Batman Arkham series, but it's another kind of game) so I would like to know how to make x360ce work on my distro.

I installed it via winetricks as a component, activated it as an option in Lutris, but it's no use... it absolutely doesn't work. Does anyone has an idea? Thanks in advance.

My Lutris and Wine builds are up-to-date btw.
