3080 Ti users - What kind of performance are you getting in Elden Ring at 4K?

3080 Ti, i9 9900K and 32GB of RAM, using Arch, the NVIDIA 515 driver and the latest Proton Experimental. I feel like my hardware should be plenty for 60FPS. I get stable 60 most of the time, but there are certain points where my frame rate drops to around 40. The ruins in northern Liurnia just before the giant troll merchant are a good example. The part that confuses me is that its not even during the most graphically intense scenes that my frame rate drops. I could maintain solid 60FPS during the whole fight with Margit, and other areas with dense vegetation like the mistwood keep stable 60 as well. Not to mention the fact that my GPU is only at ~91% usage in the affected regions. Is it normal or should I be concerned?

HOTAS buttons recognized as an Xbox controller

Hello, looking for HOTAS assistance with Steam and Elite Dangerous.

VKB Gladiator NXT Joystick
VPC Throttle MT-50CM2
Mint 20.3, kernel 5.13.0-41-generic x86_64
AMD 5600x, RX6700XT
Proton 7.0-2

Both controllers are recognized by jstest, all buttons/axis detected and working. Elite Dangerous is installed through Steam. When binding the buttons, they are translated to Xbox controller buttons. Steam input is disabled for the game. Haven't been able to find anyone else with this issue.

I tried installing/running the game via Lutris but it always crashes on launch and I gave up after a few hours of tinkering.

fresh install, initial update, black screen

I'm running Arcolinux, with a ryzen processor and nvidia 2080 graphics card. I've updated and rebooted repeatedly. I went through the initial install of Steam, it installed updates then opened a black window and thats as far as it goes. Any clues? I haven't even entered my username yet.

I have Vortex running via Proton, but it can't see my other installed games. How do I let it read them?

Exactly as the title says. I have Vortex installed and running, added to Steam as a non-Steam game, running through Proton. It is installed into my Steamapps library with all of my actual games, but it can only see its own folder; how do I make the rest visible to Vortex so I can add the install paths and actually use the modloader?

Please do not suggest alternative methods of installation for Vortex (or equivalent). I have tried every option conceivable over the course of a year and a half, and all of them- without fail- have proven unsuccessful for me.

For Reference: Ubuntu MATE 21.04

Help Needed

So recently i have been trying to play DayZ. However each time i launch the game it doesnt load anything and just hangs on a black screen. I dont use the launcher for DayZ as it gives me this weird error message each time. I launch directly into the client.
I have read online of other people experiencing this problem some of them even on windows. Still have not found any fix. I have tried opting into a steam beta program. I also have set my game to force the use of Proton Experimental. I have proton battle eye runtime installed too. I've found some people that suggest using the command "sudo sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=1048576" in the terminal. This hasn't solved the issue either. I found a discussion on steam about someone having this issue, they disabled Shader Pre-Caching and that worked for then. It hasnt for me. Anyone else having this problem?

Fedora 36 - micro-stutter in all games

Every game I try has severe micro-stuttering making a 60fps frame-rate feel like 30, even though mangohud is reporting 60.

Example games I have tried:

Dark Souls III [frame-time graph]

Skyrim Special Edition

Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth 1

The problem is present in all of these games, in the exact same way.

The only fix I found was to disable my second monitor, but this made no difference.

Which would you rather game with on Linux: Lutris for GOG games or Steam Proton?

I was kind of hoping the release of the Steam Deck would prompt GOG to release a GOG Galaxy client for Linux with a compatibility layer like what Steam's Proton uses but that hasn't happened yet.

Most of my games are bought on GOG for that DRM-free philosophy but now I'm debating if I should start repurchasing my GOG library on Steam plus the games that seem like they won't be coming to GOG anytime soon.

The question though is, what is the gaming experience like playing GOG games through Lutris vs Steam games with Proton?

I am still on Windows 10 to play Battlefield 4 and 1.

05/22/2022 21:04:24 CEST

is it normal for Proton to be laggy?

I've tried Proton to play my steam games on Manjaro linux but apparently the games have a very low framerate. Is my GPU (GTX 1060) too old or do I have to tweak some settings a bit more?

Looking for a FPS that just works - can be played on a TV with wired Xbox controller

I'm running LMDE 4, Ryzen 5900X, 64gb, 1080

Two monitors + TV (need to play full screen on the TV from the couch)

Wired Xbox controller.

Spent most of yesterday trying to play *a* game from my Steam library. Not all of this is Linux fault, I ran into some issues on my old build when an update borked some issues, gave up and was hoping a new platform might have fixed some stuff. After debugging code and tech all week, yesterday killed me - essentially was an extra long day of "work" without anything to show for it. The information on how to even play and how many layers to run them through is so fractured that figuring it out is itself more work than fun. I'm willing to toss my library and buy something new if it means just playing a game instead of debugging it. Use Lutris to open Steam to open Proton? If there's a dummy's guide out there on setting up a playing environment I'm all eyes but when I asked for that it got downvoted so...there's that.

Tried CSGO, controller doesn't seem to work (jerks around and was unusable, some drift that I tried fixing but didn't take hold in the game, known problems). All my Half Life 2s I guess are keyboard only so those are out. Splinter Cell Conviction just wouldn't load (that hurt, I loved that game/series - also seems to be a known problem).

Looked on the https://www.protondb.com/ site for ideas, tempted by Splinter Cell Chaos but has the same rating as CSGO which doesn't inspire confidence. So, before I buy more games I can't play, wanted to see if there were some "bomb proof" recommendations. Could really use a hook and a win.

I made a kart profile for supertuxkart for those who love max of everything

I pushed most things to extreme (speed, acceleration, nitro,mass) without being too unreasonable in my opinion, and edited the controls to make them suit me at those speeds. Since the game is open source, one can edit everything to ones preferences, so it can also be considered a basic tutorial.

For starters, go into /usr/share/supertuxkart/data. There is a file named kart_characteristics.xml. Open the file and between lines 404 and 405 (between and ) insert the following code:


Now we have created a kart profile called super. Now we can define our preferred karts with this. To do that, head into /usr/share/supertuxkart/data/karts/, and open the folder with your favourite character. In the folder, there is file called kart.xml. Open it, and at line 8 change the variable 'type' to 'super' such that it looks like


You only need to make this one change and can leave the rest of file untouched (it determines the appearance so can be broken easily. Back up in case). Relaunch the game and test your kart. Further explanation as to what variables mean is in kart_characteristics.xml file itself.

Arch Linux becomes very slow when updating or downloading games on Steam

This isn't actually an issue that I'm experiencing, but my brother. Whenever he downloads a game (or has high disk usage in general), his computer crawls to a halt. Doing anything takes a while. Opening windows, a terminal, even getting a prompt through ssh on my machine takes a while.

Steam shows about 9-10 MB/s of usage as it writes to disk. If I download the same game on my computer, I get around the same disk usage, but the PC still flies as if nothing's happening.

We both use Arch Linux, both on all AMD systems. Difference is, his PC has gone through some modifications, but it always seemed to have weird issues that I didn't experience.

So, system specs:


  • Ryzen 5 3400G
  • No GPU (using iGPU)
  • 16GB DDR4 RAM @3200Mhz
  • Kingston SA400 480GB SSD

His specs:

  • Ryzen 5 5600X
  • RX 570
  • 16GB DDR4 RAM @3200Mhz
  • Kingston SA400 480GB SSD

As you can see, it's even weirder that we both have the exact same SSD where Arch is installed, and mine is older than his! So I don't really know why this happened.

Before getting the RX 570, he had a GTX 750Ti. We deleted the NVIDIA drivers and replaced them with the AMD drivers, but maybe there's some residue left somewhere? As far as I know, we are both using basically the same system. He's on KDE and I'm on qtile, but I was using KDE before too, and I never experienced none of these issues.

How can I debug this? I guess reinstalling everything could fix it but I would like to be able to figure out the root cause of this and fix it. Maybe there's a problem with the scheduler? Both systems are up to date, but maybe there's some old config file screwing things up. I don't know.

Steam screen tearing?

Recently upgraded my SSD so I reinstalled Linux and I'm in the process of setting everything up same as before and reinstalling my games/programs and such. I did upgrade from Mint 20 to Mint 20.3, though.

I noticed scrolling in Steam felt really jittery, and I think it's slight screen tearing. Turning off the hardware acceleration and smooth scrolling and such seemed to help it be less jittery, but there's still slight tearing. Firefox isn't having this issue though.

I've also noticed bad screen tearing in Terraria too. Tried a few other Steam games like Mini Metro, Dorfromantik, and Necesse and don't see any issues. Don't have a lot of non-Steam games, but Minecraft seems fine too. I also used to be able to play Terraria with Frame Skip: Subtle, but now it has to be Off in order to now do the famous slow-mo (however no frame-skip causes screen tearing now).

Seems to just be Terraria and Steam. Not sure if they're related issues or not.

Any ideas what might be causing this, or what kind of fixes I could try?

I've tried virtual desktop and altering the mouse capture settings, but no dice.

Is there a fix for this? The dosbox version works, but I prefer the improved graphics of the windows version.

Best way to move install to another machine?

Would it be sufficient to just grab a list of installed packages from my current Arch install and my home directory and just reinstall all the packages and import the home directory?

Will that work? Is there a better way to do it?

The DualSense Firmware Updater program doesn't detect my controller (Wine 7.9 + Bottles)

Hello there, fellow Linux Gamers,

I've recently heard that Sony has released a firmware updater for their DualSense controllers so that people like me not having PS5s can reap the benefits of rumble, trigger and analogue stick calibration improvements.

But the catch is that this program is Windows-only. No problem, I'm an Arch user who replaced systemd with runit with ease. So I saw Gardiner Bryant's tutorial on it, installed Bottles from the AUR and selected the latest version of Proton from the dropdown menu. Installing the program went smoothly, but when I opened it, nothing happened.

But then two days later, Wine 7.9 came out and I updated to it (by downloading the caffe fork of 7.9 in Bottles) and changed the runner to it for the program by creating a clean PREFIX for the program.

"Yay, now the program launches! It was a Wine bug, after all!" - said to myself. But then the smile quickly turned to frustration after connecting the controller and seeing that the program didn't detect my DualSense controller (losing the entire point of the application). I closed Steam, hunted for input device dependencies Wine could use and dove deep into the depths of Linux forums, but to no avail.

How can I fix this?

No Man's Sky shadercache reloads everytime I start the game since updating Lutris to

I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit, Desktop).

Until yesterday I used the Lutris version, installed using:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lutris-team/lutris  
sudo apt update  
sudo apt install lutris 

as said here: https://lutris.net/downloads

Because of an issue I updated Lutris and recieved 0.5.10 (using Ubuntu Software Updater).

However, with Lutris version 0.5.10 I was not able to start any game anymore, because of a bug that was fixed with

I tried to update, but on Ubuntu, Luris version 0.5.10. was the latest version.

So I moved over to Github and got the *all.deb file for and installed that using the Ubuntu software center.

Now everything works fine again, but I have one issue with No Man's Sky:

Everytime I start the game, the shadercache gets build from scratch. This takes some time (about 1-2 minutes) and during that time, the game stutters. But its even more annoying, cause if I f.e. load the game while I'm on a freighter, the freighter cache gets loaded, but when I then fly to a planet, It stutters again, to load the planet. If I move then back to the freighter, the game runs smooth, until I restart the game.

This was not an issue in, at least not on my end.

Is there something I can do?

So what do you think of gaming on WINE/DXVK and VAAPI recording?

Maybe it is special?

It may not look good. But it's open source software running a sandboxed game?

I'm sure most recent AMDGPUs record via VAAPI just fine even at 100% load. What do you think? Would it feel and look good?

I wonder if H264_VAAPI would run better if the GPU is at 100% load compared to HEVC_VAAPI considering both are capped at 60fps. The fans probably will be very loud at this point. H264 might release some of the burden from the graphics card.

But WINE/DXVK causes a overhead in gaming. Idk, many old games use up to 70% GPU even from 2008 era. But new games can use 70-99%, and it runs fine despite being many times more graphically intensive than 2008 era games. But I feel like WINE somehow loads the GPU excessively even when "not necessary"?

Is the NVIDIA 515 driver borked for anyone else?

I updated my NVIDIA driver from 510.68 to 515.43 a few days ago (running openSUSE Tumbleweed), and ever since updating it, I'm unable to launch Persona 4 Golden - an error pops up saying "Sorry! Application has crashed". Other games launch perfectly using DXVK so it seemed to be an isolated issue with Persona 4. I tried multiple Proton versions (including known working ones that were fine before the update), as well as a fresh reboot but nothing helped.

Doing further investigation by launching the game with PROTON_LOG=1, it shows DXVK failed to create an instance and a line that follows after that stands out "Required Vulkan extension VK_KHR_surface not supported"

I was previously able to play without any issues, and to confirm that this is an issue with the 515 driver and not the game, I rolled back my PC to the previous NVIDIA version using snapper and locked all NVIDIA-related packages from updating. I'm now on the latest version of my distro with only my NVIDIA packages held back to the previous version, 510, and the game launches perfectly with no errors.

Doing a quick look around, others seem to be facing the same issue too with other games (it seems to only affect some games?), however I haven't found anything on the DXVK or Proton issue tracker mentioning this, nor in this subreddit. Does anyone know what's going on?

What differences are there between the proton versions before and after 5.0-10 that I might be able to get the game working on 7.0-2/experimental so hopefully there is no slideshow.

Does anyone have a n00bs guide to playing Ubisoft games through Steam?

I've seen a few references to people getting this to work but with huge chunks of information left out. Blew the time I wanted to game trying to get something to just work.

I have R5900X / 64gb Ram / 1080.

I have Steam installed.

I installed Splinter Cell Conviction through Steam.

I have Proton Experimental selected

I downloaded UbisoftConnectInstaller.exe from Ubisoft's site, added it as a "non Steam game," selected Proton Experimental for that too, hit "Play" so now that's running in a window next to Steam. I saw some references to installing it through a Steam terminal window but can't seem to find that anywhere.

I hit Play on Splinter Cell in Steam, window pops up for a little bit and then returns the following errors: "Operating System not supported" and "No audio device detected" (assuming that's a result of the OS). This is the same error I had before trying to install Connect Installer or anything else, so I feel like maybe it has nothing to do with that?

Anyway, any help would be great, thanks!

Gamemode.ini question

Arch Wiki has suggested to set the renice to 10 to increase priority and leave the rest by default. I presumed this would give me a better performance, but it was in fact the opposite: a lot of games ran worse with 10 renice setting, so I have it set to 4 which seems to have given me a better performance.

On that note, I do want to tweak the config a little more to squeeze more performance. And one option that had caught my eye was the softrealtime option in the config file; looking at it, most of the options are self-explanatory, but I'm confused what this option does - Should I set it to on or leave it default (off)?

Benchmarking it with the option off and on would be the most obvious answer, but I'm also curious of other people's suggestion or opinion with this option or others in the config file, really.

No Man's Sky shadercache reloads everytime I start the game since updating Lutris to

I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit, Desktop).

Until yesterday I used the Lutris version, installed using:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lutris-team/lutris
sudo apt update
sudo apt install lutris

as said here: https://lutris.net/downloads

Because of an issue I updated Lutris and recieved 0.5.10 (using Ubuntu Software Updater).

However, with Lutris version 0.5.10 I was not able to start any game anymore, because of a bug that was fixed with

I tried to update, but on Ubuntu, Luris version 0.5.10. was the latest version.

So I moved over to Github and got the *all.deb file for and installed that using the Ubuntu software center.

Now everything works fine again, but I have one issue with No Man's Sky:

Everytime I start the game, the shadercache gets build from scratch. This takes some time (about 1-2 minutes) and during that time, the game stutters.
But its even more annoying, cause if I f.e. load the game while I'm on a freighter, the freighter cache gets loaded, but when I then fly to a planet, It stutters again, to load the planet. If I move then back to the freighter, the game runs smooth, until I restart the game.

This was not an issue in, at least not on my end.

Is there something I can do?

Convoluted Origin/Epic situation... worth solving?

Hi guys, I'm trying to figure out if it's worthwhile or even possible to get Battlefront II (the new version, not classic) running on Linux.

I know the game has a Gold rating on ProtonDB, but the issue for me is the convoluted way that I own the game. I got it in a free giveaway on the Epic store, but it was an Origin title at the time, which means that to launch the game on Windows I have to launch it from the Epic store, which then launches it through Origin. This seems like an absolute nightmare to navigate with Heroic and Lutris -- BF2 doesn't show up in my Heroic library, though it does show up in my Epic library, because I don't technically own it on Epic. I'm also having trouble even getting Origin to install through Lutris, but I'm not going to bother troubleshooting that if it's a dead end anyway.

Has anyone resolved this situation? Any advice? If there's some alternative launcher for Origin analogous to Heroic that would be ideal, Origin is awful software even on Windows.

Issue when running Beyond Earth through Lutris

I tried to run Beyond Earth (windows version) through lutris (as I have problems with the linux native version and didn't got it to run with Proton).

btw. I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit, Desktop).

When I try to start it through Lutris I get this error in the log:

How can I fix that?

Automatically Launch Battle.Net Game with Proton

i have a Steam Deck and got Diablo 2: Resurrected to run.
To do that, i installed and added Battle.net in Steam as a non-steam app.
That works and i can play D2:R fine.
But: In the current configuration i have to start the Battle.Net launcher application and after that i can start D2:R from the Battle.Net launcher.

Is there a way to automatically start D2:R after starting Battle.net?
I already did some googling and added a launch option in steam: --exec="launch OSI", but it does not work.

Does someone have a solution for this?

Downloading the Steam shader cache without buying the game first?

I couldn't find this question anywhere on the Internet:

Is it possible to download the pre-compiled shader cache files for a Windows game without having to buy it first on Steam? For example, I've bought Final Fantasy XV on Steam, but I prefer to play an unofficial debug build of the game that runs faster than the official version found on Steam. Because I've already bought the game and downloaded the shader cache files via Steam, all I need to do is move the shader files from $STEAMLIBRARYPATH/steamapps/shadercache/$GAMEID/DXVK_state_cache/ to the folder of the debug build, and then I can simply play that version using lutris without worrying about any stutters when new shaders are compiled.

The problem is that I've also bought some games from the GOG store, which are also available in the Steam store, and I don't want to rebuy these games on Steam simply to have access to the DXVK cache files. Is there any (legal) way to have access to these pre-compiled shaders without spending money?

Steam games under Proton don't boot up if they're installed on my 2nd drive

I'm running Linux Mint, and I've come to a problem where most games under Proton refuse to boot up on my HDD. One thing I've noticed, is that it doesn't to install dependencies, like for an example when Fall Guys was installed under my HDD nothing popped up after installing and booting it up, and it immediately crashed, but after installing it on my SSD it also installed Epic Online Services and all that other stuff it needs.

Games tested:

- Fall Guys (doesn't work, runs just fine on my main SSD)

- Bloons TD5, 6 and Monkey City (doesn't work, BTD6 runs just fine on my SSD, didn't test the others)

- Stardew Valley (works!)

- Paladins (doesn't work, didn't test it on the other drive)

Games with Linux support work just fine such as Counter-Strike: Source, as well as games from other platforms like Epic Games (Enter the Gungeon) under Wine/Lutris.

CPU overload when running apex

I just installed apex on linux and I can't even get past the register screen. When I check my systems monitor it says my cpu is running at 100%, and I can't figure out why. I'm running the game through steam, and I set it as an affinity, but it doesn't seem to change anything. I have an i3-10100 (I know im poor) but it should at least be able to get past the register screen.

Rogue Company working better on Linux than on Windows

Out of desperation I tried it on Linux without any hope, but it installed an worked without any problem out of the box.

I find it very ironic, that I had to use Linux in order to play a native Windows game that otherwise would not have worked.

I'm trying to follow a post from this subreddit a few months ago of installing SC2 via steam

Sc2 can no longer install via Lutris, and I've been trying to find other ways of installing it and I found a post from this very subreddit.

This is the post I'm talking about. The account is no longer active. But I don't understand what he added to steam to get SC2 running.

I've played games via proton, so that's not an issue, but he never really explained what he added.

One of the guys had the same unanswered question:

What do you add to Steam exactly, just the .exe install file from Blizzard?

Help with Titanfall2 on Arch Linux

Hello, I just bought Titanfall2 from steam, but I'm having difficulties launching it from Steam.

I've search around for a similar problem in these sub but no avail on solving my problem

Here's the link that I've tried



I make sure that I've installed all the dependencies required to run the game




Changing the proton compatibility layer from

  1. GE-Proton7-17
  2. Proton Experimental
  3. Proton 7.0-2
  4. Proton 6.3-8
  5. Proton 5.13-6
  6. Proton 5.0-10

And making sure that i delete the 'pfx' folder on each run with different proton version.

The game just wont start. I shows a pop of installing origin thin client, then installing some required windows files and just go back to green button. ( Proton GE , Experimental, 7.0-2, 6.3-8 )

On another Try ( Proton 5.13 ) Origin Client did show up ( I install Origin (not the thin version) through lutris ) but it said that Origin cannot find the game.


I also try to add the TF2 which i download from steam to the origin library, but it cannot launch too.

I cannot download TF2 via Origin, because i bought it on steam.

And I run the game via steam using

mangohud gamemode %commands%

Would really love to run it at its highest refresh rate. I have a VESA certified DP 1.4 cable thats connect, so the cable is not an issue. Paid quite a hefty price tag for the cable. Thanks in advance.

OBS error "Failed to open NVENC codec" after pc wakes up from sleep

Always getting that error when I boot up back again my pc after putting it on suspend. I'm on Fedora 36, but this issue happened to me everywhere and probably because of the propietary Nvidia driver.

My only advice on the Fedora discord server was to "just don't use suspend lol" and I'm obviously not gonna follow that advice. Call me crazy, but I expect my PC to be able to do the things ot was designed to do.

The only fix I know is to reboot the PC, but is not ideal. Anybody knows a fix for this that can be done in runtime or only requires 1 reboot?

Best sites for news/reviews of games available in GNU/Linux?

Hey guys!

Right now my sources to discover news or reviews about video-games are these:

- https://www.anaitgames.com/ (Spanish)

- https://niveloculto.com/ (Spanish)

- https://www.youtube.com/c/RagnarRoxShow

- https://www.youtube.com/c/ErrantSignal/

But the problem is that I'm trying to stick to GNU/Linux gaming, DRM-free and even free/libre software. Do you know of any site with news or reviews or even a forum to discover new games for GNU/Linux, and with interesting reviews about them? It doesn't even have to be a site whose content is exclusively about it, or maybe one in which I simply could filter GNU/Linux games.

Right now my way of doing this is going to itch.io and filtering by Linux. But this site is more of a repository/platform for games, I don't find it useful to find out new interesting games or to find nuanced and passionate reviews or discussions about them.

Thanks a lot in advance!

CoD WaW Missing sounds

There are some missing sounds that I've noticed when I was playing CoD WaW. I don't really know how I can fix these stuff, I'm just hoping someone would point to how I can fix these issues.

The most noticeable is on nazi zombies. The laugh is missing, the round jingle that plays after killing all zombies is gone and when I repair a window, I don't hear the bell jingle.

There's also missing gun sounds. Most noticeable is with sniper rifles. (or just rifles with sniper scopes) the woosh (the one that goes HWEEHHEHEH) that plays is missing entirely and I even [snatched this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUzqBL4blgQ) thinking it was a bug because I was playing the 1.0 version of the game. I since patched it to 1.7 and didn't notice any improvements.

So that about concludes everything I could find that was missing sounds. I hope somebody responds to this thread with a solution. And please, detail it! I'm very bad at wine configuration magics.

World of Tanks not capturing mouse in battle

After much experimentation, I got WoT to launch from Lutris by downloading the installer executable and running that. (the default install scripts for WoT and the WG Center don't work)

The mouse still works fine in menus, etc; it initially worked correctly in-game, then started bouncing around wildly with the slightest touch after I upgraded to the HD client. I couldn't find what was causing it using the graphics menu, so I reinstalled. Now, even with the SD client, the mouse does nothing in-game - it hardly budges the reticle, and does so in the opposite direction AFAICT.

I've tried everything I can think of - forcing mouse warp, disabling it, running in a virtual desktop (although that froze before I could test the game), setting the envvars from the broken install script - to no avail.

I'm using the latest/default lutris-fshack (7.2.0) wine build Lutris has to offer, on Void Linux with river. The game is graphically displayed via XWayland, though. Same results when running the installer with wine64.

So I tried the akmod-nvidia drivers instead. These work better but still a lot of tearing.

Could you give me some tips, this is the 1st time putting together my own linux gaming rig:


Traditionally I've done console gaming my whole life, but recently I decided to purchase and put together PC parts, to make a gaming rig. I work as a software engineer using Linux everyday, so I decided to make a Linux gaming rig, since it's now a viable operating system for pc gaming.

So, here's my requirements:

  • A high end gaming rig: 4k/8k, ray-tracing, freesync, and so on.
  • An AMD graphics card, and an AMD processor.
  • Motherboard(future proof for usb-type-c, and next generation AMD components(graphics-card/processor), if possible).
  • Large glass(or plastic)/see-through casing, with plenty of space, and good ventilation.
  • RAM: minimum of 16gb ram, if it's cheap then I'll want to purchase more ram.
  • M.2 NVME storage: Amount of storage will depend on price.
  • Power supply unit (PSU): highest quality power supply, as well as enough voltage/watts for high-end gaming.
  • System Cooling: Probably a water cooler.
  • Gaming Peripherals: I'll probably go with a steam controller, I already have a Rog gaming headset.
  • Gaming Keyboard and Mouse.
  • Support for usb-c: I try to use usb type-c for everything.
  • Operating System: Linux, I have my own favorite Linux distro and package manager, so no issues here.

This is my 1st time putting together my own Linux gaming rig, so please have patience.

I was thinking to 1st purchase the glass-case, motherboard, amd graphics-card, amd processor, and power-supply 1st as a bundle, then gradually purchase the rest of the parts, so I can do more research before purchasing.

Also I don't mind a purchasing a pre-build pc rig, but I want to parts to be shipped separately, because I want to put together the parts myself, so that I can have a better understanding, and I like to tinker with electronics, hardware, and software.

Any tips are greatly appreciated, thanks in advance for the help.

I'm confused, lol.

New FOSS games?

I was researching foss games and noticed that they are older games, I was wondering if there are any new foss games? Did people give up making foss games? Nothing new appears when I look for them.

wine vs proton performance

does anyone else have better fps with wine-staging over proton?

I had Elder Scrolls Online installed with wine, using the Zenimax installer, and it was perfect.

I had a bunch of Steam credits, so I bought it again on the new system to it with proton-GE.

I never clocked the wine version, but there was no noticeable issues with graphics at "high."

with proton-GE, I must use "low" settings or my fps will drop to around 20.

are there tweaks for proton, or am I best off reinstalling with wine?

V Rising - Arch - Working (minor gfx issues)

Figured somebody may find this useful... I was able to run V Rising on Manjaro Arch today using Bottles. Ill update this as more information becomes available.

  • Install Bottles https://github.com/bottlesdevs/Bottles

  • Go into preferences and install the latest runner for Wine-GE I installed the latest for each, to have them available.

  • Create Windows 10 bottle for Gaming

  • Go to the windows 10 bottle preferences and turn on the following: DXVK, VKD3d, DLSS (for nvidia), FSR, Discrete GPU

  • Go to installers and install Steam

  • Launch Steam, login, download V Rising

  • Good to go!

Notes: The main into (which you can skip) and main menu has orange scanlines, but everything else seems to work. The game itself runs awesome except for some shuddering when new shaders are used for the first time but clear up quickly. I also had a hung process trying to exit it once, but Bottles allows you to kill all processes. One last item of note is Steam seems to disconnect frequently, but doesn't appear to affect game play... but I only used offline mode.

From PopOS to Ubuntu Studio

I have been using popOS for a bit now. Recently updated to 22.04.
I mostly game on my PC but I sometimes stream as well with OBS to twitch.
On the gaming side I have had quite a bit of success with popOS. I've been very happy with it.
The only real issue I've had is with audio especially when trying to stream or record with OBS. I heard about Ubuntu studio today when doing research on how to fix my audio issues. From what I've read it should make the changes I'd like to implement easier and I am strongly considering the swap.
My dilemma though is I am quite a noob when it comes to Linux. I'm still very much learning. So if Ubuntu studio isn't very friendly for gaming I'm not sure I could solve the problem. Effectively trading one problem for another. My stream would work better but I'd have less to stream.
Any advice would be welcome. Please help me decide.

XBox Series X Controller Bluetooth issues


Today I finally bought a controller to pair with my setup. I used Windows machine to update controller firmware, everything seemed to be working fine. Controller connected to my laptop without issues via Bluetooth, I played some games on Microsoft XCloud in my browser (Chrome). But when it came to any other game, the controller starts to act weird.

It behaves like right stick was always stuck in upward position (in some games just constantly looking up) many buttons are inproperly matched (for example RB is Menu, LT is Settings etc). When I connect it with USB - no problem, everything works as expected.

I tested it on Windows, works like a charm. I tested it on online gamepad testers - works fine, no issues, no mismatched buttons. Only in games.

I use Bottles (flatpak version) and Heroic Games Launcher (flatpak version) - both have this problem.

About my distro - Fedora 36 Workstation (GNOME on Wayland), kernel stock 5.17.8-300.

Yes, I gave permission to Bluetooth in Flatseal.

How to Solve Wine Status 126 Error

Hello everyone,

I've been using Windows for almost 30 years now but recently bought a Mac Mini. I am a freelance subtitler / translator and I couldn't find any equivelant for my favorite subtitling software Subtitle Edit, for which I still have to use my ASUS notebook, which is way too noisy compared to my Mac. I've tried installing Win 11 through UTM but it was really slow with a warning saying "Requirements not met."

Anyways, I've decided trying Wine after watching some videos but when I try to install Subtitle Edit using Wine, I get the following error:

Poor performance with new RX 6600 on Manjaro

I'm getting weird periodic FPS dips alongside spikes in GPU and CPU activity using an RX 6600 that's only a few months old on a fresh install. Games will be running smoothly at the monitor refresh rate of 60 FPS and then will start to fluctuate anywhere between 30-50 FPS (even when not under load) typically for around 5-10 seconds until they return back to 60 FPS, repeating periodically. This started happening relatively recently as it ran without problems before running into them and reinstalling my OS as a troubleshooting step. Other troubleshooting steps (which haven't fixed the issue) I've done on the fresh install includes trying mesa-git, different kernels (5.15, 5.16, and 5.17 all face the same issue) changing the PCI-E connector, reinserting the GPU, setting minmum GPU clock speed to match maximum clock speed, and increasing the power limit. BIOS is up to date as is practically everything else.


OS: Manjaro GNOME 21.2.6

Kernel: 5.17.6-1-MANJARO

Civ Beyond Earth - no Sound after several turns (Ubuntu 20.04)

I play Civ beyond Earth (Steam, native Version) on my Ubuntu 20.04 (Desktop, 64-bit).

It runs good, but after some turns i always face the same problem: The sound just stoppes (i get no sound at all).

Restarting the game fixes the problem temporarly.

In the settings the sound is set to 100%, every other software / game works fine.

If you need more system specs / informations / whatever, please tell me.

I also tried to run it through Proton, it worked for 1 day, but now it does not start anymore

Use a windows installation as a wine Prefix? Is it possible?

I'm currently on Linux Mint with dualboot windows 10, and i've been thinking of something, my games have all the save games on C:\, most of their requisites like .net and all of that, are also on C:\, so instead of creating and using a new wine prefix, being basically, a "new windows installation" can't i just use my windows 10 installation, so that way i'm mostly sure that all of the games requisites and save games are going to be present... Is this something possible? Would love to know... i would give it a try but i dont know if it will break my windows installation in some way, and i dont that, since i will still be using windows

Has someone had luck with a arma reforger server on debian?

I know the game is only out for a few days but maybe someone knows the secret command to make it run and maybe this is helpful for others because there is almost no documentation.

What I did:

  • Download the server via steamcmd: app_update 1874900
  • Do everything from step 5 onwards in the official doc because everything before that has to do with docker
    • Install necessary SW
    • Create folder for logs, e.g: mkdir /home/profile
    • Run server
      • ./ArmaReforgerServer -gproj ./addons/data/ArmaReforger.gproj -config Configs/ServerConfig/Campaign.json -backendlog -nothrow -profile /home/profile

Unfortunately I get the error "Addon 'ArmaReforger' dependency '5614BBCCBB55ED1C' can't be added". I found mentioning in of this "Addon" in the ArmaReforger.gproj file. I removed it, just to test if it is neccasary but the I get "Can't find default system font '{0E041C5B1F27DCEA}ui/fonts/robotomono_msdf_28.fnt'"

Has someone an idea?

No input from DualShock 4 or DualSense in Elden Ring

Just what the title says; for whatever reason, I cannot seem to get any inputs to register in Elden Ring with any PlayStation controllers. I've had the DualSense work with the game in the past, and then intermittently stop working for the rest of the day. (Even after multiple restarts.) For some reason though, my arcade stick which uses an Xbox One controller board detects just fine. I've also confirmed that all of the controllers work in other games without any problems, and that jstest always registers inputs from them.

I've tried running with Steam Input enabled and disabled, setting my "Desktop Configuration" for both controllers to "Gamepad", then trying with Steam Input enabled and disabled, and disabling the touchpad on both controllers using an Xinput rule. None of this has proven to work so far.

Has anybody else run into something like this? Is there something I'm missing? Where should I start with log files/options to troubleshoot? Thanks.

Switched from Nvidia to a 6650 XT: stuck at 500 MHz and 30 W maximum

Hi there,

I have switched from a Nvidia GPU to a brand new 6650 XT (PowerColor Red Devil), and let's say it hasn't gone in a satisfying way...

tl;dr: I think I have tried everything and still, the GPU is stuck at a max of 500 MHz and 30 W power draw, resulting in very low fps. Looking for suggestions?

Just a bit of info on what I'm running:

  • Arch Linux, with 5.17.9 linux-zen
  • mesa 22.0.3
  • Asus X370 Prime Pro with a 2018 BIOS
  • Ryzen 1700, not OCed
  • 32 GB of DDR4
  • a Corsair AX 860i power supply, which is more than enough and is working well
  • a 34-inch 21:9 3440x1440 100 Hz monitor over DisplayPort

After installing the card and rebooting, I uninstalled everything related to the Nvidia drivers, and installed all of the stuff for AMD (mesa lib32-mesa vulkan-radeon lib32-vulkan-radeon libva-mesa-driver lib32-libva-mesa-driver mesa-vdpau lib32-mesa-vdpau). I have been using all week (Monday to today) and I was not wowed by the performance but thought that it was probably due to driving a gigantic ass display. This morning, I started questioning if something was wrong...

The symptoms: rather low FPS in games, even with low settings. I tried World of Warships (around 40 fps at top settings, 77 fps at low/medium settings), Old World (no fps numbers to report but felt sluggish and I had to lower settings; this is when I started questioning things), and today I've ran the Shadow of the Tomb Raider benchmark after each try (consistently max of 34 fps, 99% GPU usage at 490 MHz and 33 W power draw).

Here is what I tried, in order:

  • I feared that Steam Flatpak was having some issues dealing with the driver change, so I installed Steam Runtime (along with Mangohud), and it just confirmed the issue: maximum of 500 MHz clock and 30 W power draw. All else seems correct
  • I updated to mesa-git v22.2.0, but it didn't fix the issue
  • I compiled a newer 5.18 kernel (tkg-cfs) and booted it, but it didn't fix the issue
  • I installed Fedora 36 (Nobara, really) on a spare SSD, fearing that my Arch installation had too much cruft, but it presented the same issue
  • Looking at CoreCtrl and CPU-X, it became apparent that the GPU is stuck at a maximum of 500Mhz (core clock) and 30 W power draw. I have no option to draw more or overclock, and all power modes report the same 500 MHz maximum
  • Seeing that the BIOS reported the AMD GPU as using 'Native 8x' over the PCI-E 3.0 slot (which is 16x) and CPU-X reported that it was using 'PCI-E 4.0 16x' (which my MB doesn't have ofc, so it's probably reporting the capability rather than the actual slot it's using), but still it made me think that the motherboard could be the issue
  • I have a X370 motherboard that had a 2018 BIOS, which I ultimately updated first to a March 2022 update (which didn't fix the issue) and later to a April 2022 beta update, but it didn't fix the issue
  • With the new BIOS, I have enabled BAR and related settings, as advised around here, but it didn't fix the issue
  • The board is limited to PCI-E 3.0 but I've read that it shouldn't be the issue. Just in case it was a slot issue, I tried the second PCI-E 3.0 16x slot, but it didn't fix the issue
  • I also suspected a power delivery issue, so I tried switching the power outlets used on the power supply (it's modular), to no avail. I switched to other cables, too, but no dice

I ran out of ideas, bar from trying on Windows (but I don't have that available). For the moment, I've put back the GTX 980 and I'm preparing for a reimbursement.

Do you guys have any idea what might be wrong? Is it possible that a brand new card is just a dud?

Thank you for reading through this whole thing

Apex Not Launching on Dedicated GPU

Hi, I am new to Linux.

Recently started Dual Booting Fedora on my Asus G14. I hopped through a bunch of hoops wrapping my head around what I needed to do to install Nvidia drivers. I tried launching Apex and it was launching and playing fine, (with 24 fps) on my integrated AMD GPU. When I disabled secure boot (i wasn't able to get the secure boot key set up for Linux) My Dedicated Nvidia gpu starts to be utilized however, Easy Anti Cheat won't launch.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is Easy Anti Cheat failing to launch because the secure boot is disabled? Or does this sound like an Nvidia problem? I am experiencing some other non-breaking display glitching and flickering with steam after getting it to run using my dedicated GPU.

Elden Ring slow frame rate now...

Did something happen to Elden Ring? It used to run amazingly for me. I'm on Manjaro with a Ryzen 5 3600, Rx 580 8gb, 32 GB of DDR4 3200, and running kernel 5.16 on xfce. I haven't touched the game in about two weeks and just launched it. It keeps kicking me due to frame rate issues. Everything other game that I've launched has run as it usually does, but not Elden Ring. I did just update my driver's for my GPU and also was messing around with disabling the compositor which didn't seem to make games run any better for me. I'm just wondering if anyone else is having issues.

VortexMM not running after install.

I am trying to install VortexMM on my Linux Mint 20.3 system using Lutris.
Here is the link to the install script: https://lutris.net/games/vortex-mod-manager/

Installation goes very smoothly but whenever I finish the manual install steps and go to start
VortexMM it never ends up launching.
Here is the Lutris Log for VMM: https://pastebin.com/YTwsjMvn

How to tweak Hyperkin Duke Xbox One controller

Hi everyone, I wanted to ask for help on something that's been bothering me as of late and I've not been able to find anything useful in my search for an answer.

I'll start off by saying that I'm on Garuda Linux Gaming Edition using a Hyperkin Duke Xbox One controller (the Halo Cortana version in case that's important) and the issue I'm currently dealing with is the left trigger goes off in most games with just the slightest nudge downwards, meaning in games like Halo MCC I sometimes throw a grenade when I don't want to - it also affects the right trigger but that requires more oomph before it's "pressed". I assume this is a simple deadzone issue that could be easily fixable, so I tried to fix it through Steam but unfortunately it's seen as a generic gamepad, which if I enable support for generic gamepads my single controller is seen as two controllers where each press in doubled up as two separate controllers which is a problem when navigating menues in some games and especially in titles like Hellpoint where pressing start will initiate splitscreen co-op where I control both players. With the generic gamepad support disabled it's seen as a single controller again but it won't allow me to tweak the trigger deadzones via Steam's controller options even with Xbox controller support enabled (which I need for games like Elden Ring).

Being new to full-time Linux I'm still very unfamiliar with how a lot of things work but I'm totally fine with learning more about the terminal, is there a simple fix for this via terminal commands or better yet a simple application where I can manually set the deadzones myself to a more comfortable level? It's not totally gamebreaking but it can make holding the controller for longer gaming sessions a bit uncomfortable as to not misfire, so any help would be very much appreciated.

Linux-TKG question

To those who use Arch and Linux-TKG, how do you update the kernel? Can't find the guide on the Github page.

I could just compile it again, but it takes so much time and drastically slows down my cpu. Since it's not in AUR nor official repos nor is it tracked by pacman/yay, I reckon manual update is the only option, but then I noticed the update-kernel.sh script in linux-tkg folder.

Can anyone clarify or help? Thank you.

Viable way to main Linux, and play games.

Hello All,

So, I have been using Linux on and off. Literally the only thing that is holding me from having it as my main OS is gaming. At the moment, I am using Linux only as a server (proxmox, vms and dockers).

However, I would LOVE to main Linux, and still have a viable way to play the games I love. Question is, Should I throw my current setup out of the window, and install Linux? Or if I am still a hardcore gamer, stick with windows?

For example, I would like to play games like Elden Ring (which I saw is possible?), Warzone, Overwatch, Halo Infinite, Valorant (pretty sure its not working on linux??), and more.

Please, any advice is helpful. Even if not all games I mentioned work, Please let me know how you use Linux to play games. Would love some ideas, see how you guys use it, etc.

Heroic Games Launcher v2.3.2 - Improvements and fixes
URL: https://github.com/Heroic-Games-Launcher/HeroicGamesLauncher/releases/tag/v2.3.2
05/20/2022 02:18:59 CEST

The Force Engine version 0.9 is out (play Lucasarts' Star Wars: Dark Forces and Oulaws by modern means)


Version 1.0 Plans

With version 0.9 finally released, the next major release will be version 1.0 - complete support for Dark Forces in TFE. Unlike the 0.9 release, the plan is to split up the release into several smaller releases. There will be 2 main parts:

  • Bug Fixes. I plan on splitting bug fixes by system and do one or more 0.9x release for each system. Examples include AI bugs, weapon bugs, collision issues, INF issues, etc..
  • The GPU renderer - the last major feature for version 1.0. The GPU renderer will support both shearing for looking up and down (which emulates the software renderer) and accurate perspective projection to allow the player to look up and down further without distortion like modern 3D games. Initially it will support 8-bit color emulation with optional colormap interpolation to remove banding. Later, after version 1.0 is released, true color rendering, dynamic lights and other features will be added.

Linux gaming wiki

Hi guys!

I wanted to give some follow-up about current situation with the wiki. I wasn't really active recently because a lot was going on, and I was too busy with everything. First, I'd like to thank all the contributors and specifically Aragorn (with insane 788 edits) and Marigold (with 108 edits). You two guys were most active on the start of the wiki and so far are keeping the wiki very solid, and it is absolutely amazing. If you want please hit me up I can leverage your permissions, because (especially Aragorn) is basically the main maintainer as of now.

Also, big thanks to all other anonymous contributors.

I got request for dark mode and style modifications, it is currently not possible for me to put the work there to design our own Linux Gaming Wiki theme, even tho I'd love that eventually. In the meantime I have added new theme (not set by default), that you can enable in settings, which supports Dark mode (even automatic one based on browser settings). Even tho I am not a big fun, feel free to try it and give me feedback, we can set it as default if you vibe with the new one more.

Also, domain is coming soon, I'm now hesitating between .eu or .net (net is more expensive about 2 times more yearly) so if you have any preference please let me know too.

Lastly here are some stats (there is no analytics or tracking, these are gathered purely from web server log which is currently 364MB of plain text).

Total requests: 1 386 429
Total unique IPs: 15 925
(Since 2022-01-11)

Average is 13k requests per day.
Keep in mind that there might be more than one request per page load.

Thank you all again, Linux Gaming community is absolutely amazing <3

Overwatch long loading and unloaded meshes

Also compiling shader message

It NEVER happened on this system on different installs, the game started up fast and I could hop in match in 20 seconds but now everything loads so slow as I reinstalled to manjaro.

I'm running latest KDE and problem persists on both 470 and driver-nvidia

fps wise I'm good it's just that it loads long

It's via battle net and current Lutris install script on the website

How do I know which graphic card drivers to use?

Hi everyone,

I am on Ubuntu 20.04, using the GP106M [GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile]. I am having trouble choosing the right driver. In software & updates I have the nvidia-driver-510 selected. At first, I had trouble detecting second screen with it, but using trial and error, I got it to work. However, I am still not sure how to know, if this is the right driver for gaming. Will it work for all games the same? Thanks.

P.S My glmark2 test used to be 200 and now it is only 469

Battle.net Overwatch crashing

Hi there!

I have used PopOS as my first Linux distro for the last few months. But when I broke something and couldn't figure out what it was I switched to Zorin OS and did a clean installation. On PopOS I was able to play any games fine mostly without problems. But now with Zorin I cant play Overwatch anymore. (Steam games work fine) After some tinkering I was able to launch Battle.net. But when I downloaded Overwatch and tried to start it only the Blizzard logo showed up - and then crash.

I have saved to protocols of the whole event from starting battlenet to launching overwatch and closing it again and put it in the comments. I dont know what to do with it. Could someone help me with it?

Thanks in advance

Humble App

Hello guys,

As per the title i've been trying to get that app going for some time now, since the integration with Lutris seemingly can't detect choice subscription and leaves much to be desired in general... i can't seem to find a way though. I tried with a gaming bottle, it installs but it doesn't render correctly. Anybody has been able to fix this or to run it any other way?

Thank you very much to whoever answers.

Far Cry 5 doesn't start with proton


I lately installed Far Cry 5 via Steam but it doesn't "really" start which means that Steam tells me that it's running but it actually isn't (no window opens and so sign of it in the system monitor).

I already tried different versions of Proton without success but since it looks good on ProtonDB with Arch I hope that it's a problem on my side that can be solved.

Can it be a problem with Uplay since there are some reported lately even if I don't even get till Uplay?

I want to switch but find it hard making the transition

I'm sorry if this is long, I ramble or I'm stubborn on my thought process on how I want things to work.

I've been wanting to move to Linux for sometime, its not because Windows is bad in my opinion and while I hear stories of bad updates, files gone missing, driver issues etc... for me its been plain sailing and no issues and I would consider myself a power user. Most days I'm on here reading, checking out GOL, discord channels and some Linux youtubers as well and my games on ProtonDB. I guess you could say I have an interest in it, and I have switched briefly in the past and it was ok (laptop) I did have some frustrations but it was ok, most of these are now solved in Kernel updates.

So with having an interest, the enjoyment of tinkering, and learning something different, maybe some sysadmin knowledge of Linux, maybe its time to make the change. I'm mainly a gamer (Apex, Insurgency Sandstorm, Satisfactory, CSGO, TF2, Killing Floor 2 ) and these all seem to work, with little or no effort.

I do not want to dual boot, I'm a sort of both feet in kind of guy, but I have some concerns:

  1. Lack of functionality, Windows you are blessed with amazing looking GUI's for AMD for example, or VPN clients. Where as Linux seems more barebones or lackluster in features, or am I missing the point and everything is done in a config, Wireshark or Terminal.
  2. Logitech - I have the MX line and use the unifying receiver to pair them - there seems to be some third-party software how reliable is this?
  3. My monitor is 1440p 144hz will this be an issue and can I use Freesync in my games... further more does this limit me to a DE or WM?
  4. I'm somewhat stuck on Distro (Pop OS / Kubuntu I'm familiar with Debian based stuff, Fedora for the more frequent updates or EndeavourOS which I expect to do more googling to get my way through things.
  5. Lastly I have a lot of documents, music, media over 8TB, the drives are NTFS and they are backed up however I was going to use EXT4... I'm seriously worries about data lose or corruption.

Thank you for reading and sorry to be that guy who can't decide, even if you can't answer these but made the jump especially those who had a good experience with Windows.

Just Cause 4 suddenly started crashing on startup

Everything was fine, everything worked perfectly, and at some point when I tried to start the steam version of Just Cause 4, I began to receive an error window that says: Sorry, there were problems, in order to solve the problem, please visit this page, and then it takes me to the support page. I tried to use older versions of Proton, updated Graphic Card Drivers, launched the game through Lutris, and even reinstalled it, but nothing helped.

Proton: GE-Proton7-18 (The newest version)

Ubuntu: 22.04

I suspect that the problem is in such packages as Microsoft Redist and Direct X, because the game began to work without lags only after I updated them, and after a while, as I said, it broke.

Trying to remember the name of a Roguelike from 15 years ago

Approximately 15 years ago I had Slackware on an old laptop. There was a graphically tiled roguelike dungeon crawler that I enjoyed playing, but I can't remember what it was called or seem to find it.

All I can really remember is that it was not a Nethack fork/GUI, and it had key shortcuts for specific actions. Any of you older gamers have some favorites from back then that might be it?

Trouble playing Age of Empires and Overwatch on Ubuntu 20.04?

Hi everyone,

I tried to install some games on Ubuntu 20.04. The first game I wanted to try was Age Of Empires 2 DE. I installed steam through Proton and enabled it in Steam. At first I encountered some lags, but after graphic drivers update and V-SYNC enable the menu was smoother than ever and single player worked fine. However, when I try to run a benchmark test to play multiplayer, the game crashes, sometimes my computer freezes, as if I ran out of memory or something. However I have enough RAM to run this game. No error is reported, just freezes. Do you have any idea what it could be?

After I tried overwatch through Lutris, the installation went without problem, however the game gave an error. I tried changing the graphic driver in the Lutries menu, which gives unexpected error, or that hardware for this driver could not be found.

Do you have any tips on how to solve these errors? I think I might not have the perfect drivers for my graphic card. Also my second monitor works only on my older browsers.

What is a big plus though, is that my favourite old school RPG Gothic works perfectly without having to path anything. This was not on windows and is a huge thing! :D.

How do I run a fitgirl repack that was installed in Windows and later copied to Ubuntu 18.04?

I saw in this thread https://www.reddit.com/r/wine_gaming/comments/syim7j/installing_a_fitgirl_repack_fails/ that it was possible to install the game in Windows then copy to Ubuntu 18.04 before running it via Lutris or Wine.

[ORIGIN] Can't connect to friend list and chat.

Image reference : [https://imgur.com/a/u33IvcD]

I've recently downloaded PVZ:GW2 from Steam and funnily enough the game still runs off the Origin launcher, so I can't send party requests through Steam. But the Origin client just doesn't want to connect me to the friend list, so I'm constantly in offline mode. So, I thought this might be a Steam problem and downloaded Origin from Lutris, which returned the same results, however something I've learned from doing this is this -> [https://imgur.com/a/ltj4a7S]

Details -> [https://pastebin.com/TmcXpGDj]

The game runs normally, just that I'm stuck in offline mode on the Origin client so I can't invite friends.

Proton 7.0 & Lutris-fshack 7.2 were used for the tests.

If the problem persists, I'm going to have to consider refunding the game.

Gamescope mouse 4 and 5 input not working

Hi all, I decided to give gamescope a try for nioh 2, since VRR doesnt work out of the box. The good news is that now VRR works flawlessly and the game also seems less erratic, the bad one is that I had to add -e to get mouse input working. This though didn't make mouse 4 and 5 (the forward and backwards button) work, which are inputs I like using a lot. I'm currently running a fedora 36 install with gnome 42 on a 6900xt red devil ultimate.

Has someone encountered this issue?

YSK: a fully preemptible kernel might make your gaming latency better

There's been some talk about enabling full preemption on Fedora kernels, to improve graphical latency and responsiveness while losing raw throughput (which you probably don't care about unless your desktop is also serving heavy database or web services). Full preemption is for example used on low-latency kernels for audio production, and might benefit gamers and anyone using a graphical interface.

Right now, at least on Fedora, kernel are compiled with default voluntary preemption, where processes in kernel-mode can be preempted only at certain points, which is a step in the right direction but some kernel-heavy processes can still cause latency spikes.

Full preemption can be enabled with modern kernels that have dynamic preemption support (like Fedora's) by adding the preempt=full kernel argument. If enabled you'll see a Dynamic Preempt: full line in your dmesg.

Give it a spin and see how it goes for you. I've been using it on my F36 workstation for a while now, hasn't caused any issue, though it's hard to ascertain how better my UI latency is, as it's a pretty beefy machine.

Anyone else experiencing this problem? Thanks!

Old World - initial performance report on Linux (Debian 11)

So, I got Old World, here my first impressions of the performance on Linux.

The game is playable on Intel IGPU (UHD Graphics 630, Intel i7-8750H, Dual Chanel RAM) in 1080p and low settings (there is even a "very low" preset). FPS are around 30, 20 FPS, and - most importantly - the GUI is snappy, responsive. It's enough for a tun based 4X Game. Really impressive port. Performance could even get better on very low settings.

A Linux Patriot wants to learn how to run games manually using LUTRIS. Yes!

As a Linux Patriot who recently deleted all his Windows installations all the Windows stickers, I am never returning to Windows (and made a few posts on reddit regarding his WINE failures).

So Yes, I spent three days trying to get some common games : Dark Souls I-III, Sekiro, NieR Automata, and MechWarrior 5 working on Lutris as a start (They didn't work). So now I want to ask the Wine_gaming community to teach me how to install the dependencies and make it work.

Lutris is supposed to be self sufficient, it installs all the dependencies and has a Winetricks to install Windows dependencies. I do not use STEAM and I do not have a STEAM account nor am I going to give Valve my account information.

So as a workaround, I have a friend with a gaming VM. I ask him to install the games I want, then I rob it off his hard drive. Of course, that means, the game is running offline and requires manual configuration in Lutris as I know. (I also used to have a steam account, and that is where my existing games like NieR and MW5 come from.)

Dark Souls games appear to work well in Wine, except that Cutscenes don't play and is skipped (and crashes in Manjaro if I don't have a save that skipped the cutscenes). MW5 and NieR crash right away. There are alot of Media Framework and MFC issues.

I did install MFC, but I want someone to teach me how to install it properly for real with Lutris, and learn to read error messages in logs for real like a completent technician. Since I'm going to become a future computer researcher!

I want to ask, is there anywhere describing the Proton configuration, dependencies, and Winetrick libraries required for each game to function? And how did you get the game running in Manjaro (I broke Debian trying to get the games to run)?

Also how do I install Winetricks with Lutris, I can install the REPOSITORY Winetricks, but maybe Lutris's versions will do better.

Help me get games running on Linux (so that Linux can be superior to Windows).

First Impressions of Ubuntu Gaming (Common Problems?)

Hello! I am a noob to linux - currently using Ubuntu 22.04 as of this post.

TLDR: Fresh installs of Steam & League work fine; Upon restart of my PC everything stops working - is this normal??

Have been using and experimenting with Ubuntu for ~2 weeks, I watched every tutorial in the world and flashed a USB to get on my current system. All in all, getting Ubuntu up and running was easy - but primarily using my system as a gaming rig has been more than a headache so far. Trust me when I heard the thousands of warnings that it is a bit difficult to game on Linux, but I decided to bite the bullet and go for it.

In my 2 weeks, I have been able to play games on steam and also League of Legends through Lutris. Now to the real meat and question of the post; Steam was pretty much plug-and-play, downloading Steam Launcher through Snap -- and League of Lutris subreddit instructions helped me get League running fine first try. BUT upon restart of my PC, neither Steam or Lutris would work in any capacity. I would go to associated subreddits first to try to troubleshoot any common issues that way to no avail, as well as going to every website/article I could find to resolve or find any info on my issues -- but in the end the programs would need to do fresh installs of them playable again. 2 Main Issues:

-League would Crash after Champ select (in all occasions; client worked buttery smooth, but after champ select ""loading into the actual game"" it would black screen and "Program Not Responding"

-Attempting to launch steam would open the steam updater for a brief moment, close - than nothing would pop-up or open after, attempting to launch again would loop the above -- no feedback or errors were thrown to really give me any idea of what the issue is.

Again, upon fresh install of either, everything ran smoothly - upon restart of my PC everything would stop working. A little rant-y I know; again - I thought I headed the warnings of linux gaming, but this is not the standard I hope? Is this what the average experience is with linux gaming? Or is this some kind of anomaly? Should I try a different distro for gaming?

TLDR at TOP: Main question in tldr :)

Weird bug with Fortnite on Linux

So here's something interesting, I randomly tried installing the Epic Games Launcher and playing Fortnite on my PC (Vanilla Arch on 5.17.8-zen1) on Wine 7.7 Staging, and it actually runs, even with Easy Anti Cheat. My only problem is the graphics (see below). If anyone has any idea what could cause this, do tell. I've tried both Wayland and X11 compositors with no luck, I am running Plasma 5.24.5. For a short period of time (likely when I was recording for some odd reason) the buttons were completely unclickable, but were able to be clicked after I stopped recording.

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller don't stop vibrating playing with Steam Input

So, I'm plating Middle-Earth using a bluetooth Nintendo Switch Pro Controler. The Controller work's well except the mapping. The A and B buttons are ok but the X and Y are swapped and this make the game hard to play (The combo is Y + B, so I need to press the two opposite buttons). So I tried to use the Steam Input method, right click --> Properties --> Controller --> Enable Steam Input, then all the keys works well, but when something make my controller vibrate, it don't stop! Like, when I jump from one of the towers, the controller start to shake and just don't stop, even if I disconnect and connect the controller again.

Someone know how to fix that? Ah, the game have a native version, so, no Proton/Wine nedded.

i've actually been using Pop! OS for a couple of years now. but i still feel like i don't know what i'm doing. for most of that time i haven't had any real issues.

but lately the whole system has been freezing during games. and i'm noticing some weird lag at other times too. i've updated drivers and updated the kernel and it's still happening.

wondering if a different OS would help. also, i just want to explore more of linux and try other things.

i'm using a AMD Ryzen 5 2400g processor

and nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 card if any of that helps or makes a difference.

How can I map my PS5 controller to keyboard keys?

I'm currently trying to run an old game (from before analogue controls were standard on PC, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver) and the game does not work properly with modern controllers, so I gotta figure out how to get wine to map controller input to keyboard and I'm unable to find out how on google.

PSA: Steam is broken and no one is acknowledging it.

The recent Steam update on May 12 broke the steam client and is now causing multiple issues to both windows and the games themselves.

I started noticing something was off as soon as I saw applications' windows turning black then back to normal (a reset of sort).

Then I tried to play Bo3 and the first thing I noticed was this microstutter, on the main menu, happening every 2 seconds. Then I'd try to play a zombie map and the game would either crash while scrolling the menu, freezing after loading the map, or rarely, being able to play the map to have it crash later when the match was over. This is detailed on this thread aswell https://steamcommunity.com/app/311210/discussions/0/5135803832916918329?ctp=2

Of course the first thing I thought was that my gpu was failing, or that the latest driver was broken. So I made tests, changed driver versions and even cleaned my whole setup. Nothing. There was no graphical artifacts too, just incorrect and unexpected behavior from software that was working perfectly before May 12.

So now I start to think it might be an issue from a recent windows update I installed. So I actually reinstalled windows a total of 7 times, trying different updates, not updating etc... Completely clean installations yet the behavior was still going right when steam was running.

So, to make sure the issue wasn't coming from windows, I switched over to Linux and to my surprise, Bo3 was bevahing the EXACT same way on it aswell. Same identical menu stutter and freeze/crashing.

I then stumbled upon the steam thread linked below and at least reassured myself that my very recently bought gpu had nothing to do with it, and that steam was in fact the culprit.

But now I am browsing through multiple threads on both here and steam and nobody is realizing what is going on. People report fps going from 270 to 70 on Bo3 and someone said it was a legacy issue from the game lol.

And this sub reddit is completely clueless and people are literally playing broken games on a broken system without realizing it.

And I spent the past 4 days having fiddling with this stuff over and over, and had a mental breakdown aswell due to my perfectionism when it comes to this stuff, which I now have to keep in check by completely avoiding to use my computer because it is that bad.

Please, acknowledge this problem and make sure it gets to the right people. These past days have been the worst days of the year for me and I almost returned a perfectly working gpu that had no problems.

League of Legends on Linux.

Ladies and gentlemen, Im here once again with the desire of playing League of Legends on Linux. But sadly, there is no native version, and when i tried wine it didn't work. So, for those who also want either a native version of League of Legends for Linux, or for the regular version to be on Steam for proton compatibility, we are going to let our voices be heard. On Twitter and other social media, #LeagueOfLinux. Let's let them hear our claim. We might not achieve anything, but hey, it might be worth just a twitt or two. Share this message with people that also agree to this goal. Best wishes guys.

Media Foundation Nightmare in Lutris

Ok. I should just say I'm having fun trying to make things work.

Idk why I didn't realize this earlier... But (cutscenes do work on old 2008 games), games like MechWarrior 5 and NieR Automata (and presumely many UE games) don't play cutscenes at all. Well, they don't work at all.

Dark Souls series games works, but cutscenes, don't play, of course.

Lutris Wine Proton 5.12 and Lutris Wine GE 4.11.

They say it comes with Proton 5.8, but I'm using outdated versions, of course. I will attempt to get it working myself, but I want to ask for suggestions in case I don't (I mean, other people would like to see this too, I guess).

Debian Bullseye (with no Systemd) type system I'm using.

Manjaro appears to have it working right away. Debian Bullseye does not. But for some reason, Debian always seem to have broken functionality on it's programs.

Problem with PS4 Controller (Please Help)

This is my first post here. I am reaching out to you all because I have been having an issue with my PS4 controller. Until recently my controller worked fine with my PC. Now for some reason it's been acting weird. Here's the issue:

The controller is detected by the PC.

The controller allows me to use the touch pad as a mouse.

I'm able to change the color with OpenRGB.

AntiMicroX, GZDoom, and Steam big picture mode all work fine with the controller.

What doesn't work is pretty much anything else. Retro Arch as well as the rest of my games don't detect the controller at all, most all of them have native controller support.

I ran it with evtest and the result was it reading rapid non-stop input. (I have a picture of the result but it doesn't look like I can attach it to my post.)

Anyway, I use Ubuntu 20.04.4 and I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me resolve this weird issue.

Any way to force lower gpu memory clocks?

I bought a new 144hz 4k monitor and my idle gpu power draw shot up to 30w from 10w on the previous monitor. This happens because the gpu memory clocks are now always at max. I read that this might be related to blanking timings, so i tried all refresh rates (from 144hz down to 30hz) for 4k, 1440p and even1080p. Then i tried to create a custom refresh rate for 4k and changed to that via xrandr, but all to no avail - the power draw stays at 30w.

Trying to lower the memory clocks manually via corectrl does not do anything. So now i'm out of ideas and it really pisses me off that i need to keep the gpu fans on all the time for nothing (not to mention the wasteful energy consumption).

Did amd just hardcode these gpu memory clock values into the linux drivers? Is there any other method that could potentially help, or am i stuck in this predicament?

Dual sense (PS5 controller) and elden ring

It's a great controller and works wonderfully for any other game I tried it on, elden ring, however, doesn't really work well with it, or better, it doesn't work at all. The touch pad on the controller still works as a mouse even in game, but all the other buttons do not.

Has anyone managed to get it to work on elden ring?

I found this: https://github.com/yoyossef/ds360

Sadly however it didn't help.

Could you give some tips to future proof linux gaming rigs:


I decided to go with putting together an AMD gaming rig, which I'll install Linux on for gaming.

Anyways, I'm on the pcpartpicker website trying to put together a compatible build, but, I'm not sure how to future proof the parts, so for example when the next generation of graphics cards gets released this next fall, I want to be able to easily upgrade to a new graphics card on my linux gaming rig.

Any tips?

Thanks in advance for the help!

PSA: Install All Wine dependencies via your package manager BEFORE turning to Lutris/PoL/etc.

For the Arch family, that's looking at the pkgbuikd file and installing all deps, makedeps, and optdeps

I made the mistake of installing a bajillion Lutris wine runners to run my stuff and got very frustrated when different error messages started popping up depending on what wine helper I was using.

My specs are :

Asus Tuf FX505DT

AMD Ryzen 7 3750H with Radeon Vega mobile GFX

16 GB Ram

512 SSD (given to windows) 1 TB HDD(500 Gb in windows 500 gb in ubuntu)

Nvidia Gefore GTX 1650 Mobile

I tried This post and This video but failed in first step itself where dmesg greo returned nothing. I still went with Chris Titus's video in second part but when creating VM I got error stating cannot load AppArmor profile. So please help me reddit. I tried to passthrough my internal card when watching Chris Titus video.

Also when I tried to follow the video or blog, I had to edit /etc/defualt/grub to add "iommu=1/pt" and amd-iommu=on but after that change, whenever I boot I get long text stating "timer halt at ffffffffff"(someting like that), booting pauses and after some seconds it resumes. I their any problem?

V-Rising players

I have managed to get passed the steamworks failed to initialized issue and get to the game menu by simply switching to bleeding edge version of proton experimental.

I have not been able to get into a game yet but will update if that changes

to switch to bleeding edge go the searchbar in your library and search for proton, right click on experimental and click properties then click on betas click on the arrow to view your beta options and select bleeding edge click apply and proton experimental should start installing an update

Insurgency: Sandstorm

The game is currently with a great discount but the reports from ProtonDB are a really bit mixed, so people say they have problems with the anti cheat, other say the game has significant performance problems so I can't make up my mind about buying it.

Is the game playable, if so for how long has it been?

In the Steam Deck the game is categorise has Unsupported as well.

I did an upgrade to Pop!_OS 22.04, and it upgraded fine. After having several issues, I did a clean install... didn't fix much, but a week later everything is fine after a few updates.

My issue now is that I cannot run Stardew Valley. It's the most current GoG version. When using the command line I get:

Alternatives to Crouton for Chromebook?

Are there any alternatives to the no longer maintained Crouton for installing linux games to Chromebook with Linux ( such as a dual boot) ? I have Crostini setup and it runs some games but not most due I'm guessing the lack of driver/GPU support ( for example Skyrim, which has been run on a chromebook by others using Borealis) . I have a Lenovo Flex 5 with 8gb RAM and a recent i3 . (please don't comment by saying nothing but it's not meant for gaming, as I know and I like the challenge of seeing what I can run anyway, and I am indeed getting a full gaming PC soon.)_

Gnome Dash to Dock


I'm running Manjaro with Gnome and have Gnome Dash to Dock activated.

Elden Ring / Mountaintop of the Giants area

In MotG, in my experience, running under Linux Mint with Proton 7.0-2, I seem to see (a) a LOT of lost network connections (more than usual), and (b) a LOT of controller disconnects. I can usually fix the controller by pulling and re-inserting the USB cable, but the disconnects have to be really unfair to my summoners.

I have a pretty decent GPU (3060ti) but borderline CPU (i5-6400), and in this particular area it seems like the display sometimes struggles to keep up, with a distracting amount of juttering and delayed rendering. Nevertheless, the game plays fine most everywhere else.

Not looking for a fix. Just curious if anybody else has noticed issues with the Giants area.

(Never mind the main issue, that being that co-op'ing the Fire Giant is just about the most troublesome and janky undertaking from the get-go).

Forza Horizon 5 crashes after plugin in Thrustmaster T300 RS

Hello, As far as I can tell, FH5 crashes sometimes but overall it works fine with Proton 7.0-2, Proton Experimental [bleeding edge], and GE-Proton7-17. I tried to use my Thrustmaster T300 RS steering wheel for playing since it worked fine in Dirt 4.0 (native game). In Proton version 7.0-2 and lower the steering wheel won't be recognized at all. With Proton Experimental (at the time I'm writing) or GE-Proton7-17 FH5 keeps crashing. Either when I start the game while the steering wheel is plugged in I can't get any further than the black, "all rights reserved" screen or FH5 crashes as soon as I plugged in the steering wheel while the game is fully loaded. I could send in the log of each possible crash (2.9 GB) Thanks :) delauflahm

Steam Retroarch proton Vs Native

Is there a major performance difference between native and proton? I've read that to get pcsx2 working on the steam version you need to use it on proton and place file in the prefix but unsure.

Does anyone have issue with Steam crashing constantly on Xwayland or Wayland?

I'm having major issue with Steam's performance and stability on Wayland. I know it's not recommended to use Wayland for gaming, especially on Nvidia proprietary, and there's hardly a marginal benefit over Xorg (aside from tear free experience) to begin with. But nevertheless, I wanted to give it a go.

My problem with it is Steam would constantly crash, especially when I run heavy games like Dying Light and Hitman 2016. This doesn't happen on less-demanding games like Slay the Spire and/or does not happen on Xorg.

I'm not sure what's the exact issue is, but I'm wondering if it's just me or Nvidia.

If push comes to shove, I might actually revert to xorg since it can be quite frustrating.

Who to go to for fixing low FPS?

So I've been trying to get Element TD 2 to work halfway decently on Arch Linux. ProtonDB says that the game is Platinum rated, and I don't see anyone complaining about the performance on AMD cards.

When I had a Ryzen 5 2600 + RX 560 combo, I was getting around 10-15FPS at 1080p max quality. Moving down to lowest quality settings didn't change much

I now have a Ryzen 5 5600 + RX 6400 combo, and I'm only getting about 15-20FPS at 1080p max quality. As before, reducing quality settings doesn't change much. The GPU is being pegged 100% at all times

There's obliviously something else going on here, but I'm having problems finding out who to go to for filing a bug report. The Proton issue tracker isn't a very effective place to get help for DXVK, Mesa, or Xorg problems

So far I have the following "flowchart":

  • Does it also happen on Windows? Seek help from the developers (obviously)
  • Does the problem go away when using WineD3D? Then it's probably a DXVK issue
  • Does the problem go away when using Proton-GE? Then it's probably a vanilla Proton issue

However, I seem to be having problems coming up with a test to see if it's a Mesa or Xorg problem. I don't have a different brand video card to try another Mesa driver, and switching to Wayland probably won't do anything since the games still run under an X session using Xwayland.

GTAV resolution issues

proton 7.0-1 (steam)
gtx 980
ryzen 7 1700

windows performance: around 70-100 fps on max settings

linux performance: consistent 30 fps on any settings

i understand that it's likely due to an fps cap, but what can i do to remove this? i also can't set my resolution to 1920x1080, though it seems my WM manages to handle that okay. since i can't set my resolution to fullscreen my refresh rate is stuck at "auto". is there a use flag i should try or something?

thanks in advance for any help, let me know if more info is needed and i'll add it

How can you run PolyMC with mango hud?

It's a flatpak and I am running it through steam. Gamemode is set on the steam launch options and work correctly. However nothing happens when I insert mangohud --dlsym or just mangohud in the steam launch options. The game starts but no mango hud.

I've also tried putting it in the custom commands section of poly mc in all the 3 boxes and it causes the game not to start.

Is there any reason to run native games over proton?

No matter what, there always seems to be a problem with any native version I encounter. Lower fps, old libraries, no cross play etc...

The binding of Isaac is not updated to support repentance on its Linux port, which makes the native port useless and inferior.

I haven't tested hollow knight's port thoroughly , but this game for some reason holds different steam cloud saves depending on whether you are running windows/proton or Linux. And this isn't standard behavior seeing how hitman go shares the same saves with windows.

Sure, I can download my windows saves and manually put them on linux for it to register. But I don't really want to deal with multiple versions of my saves that I will probably forget about later on, so better to use proton. Plus, it kind of defeats the point of using cloud in the first place.

I have also checked many native games on protondb to see what people have to say about it. Pretty much every native game has people saying in the comments how the proton version is better in very specific ways.

L4d2 apparently only supports 5.1 audio on native, which is not the case on proton. Users also report 40-50 more fps under proton. Some also say how the native version has issues inside custom community servers.

Garry's mod's native port is said to be borked by some. In particular, specific mods aren't working. Again fixed through proton.

Additionally, how I ought to know whether a port is old and not up to date with the windows counterpart?

Having to look over protondb every time to make sure mine is the correct version is kind of annoying. I would just like to hit play and have steam launch the best version available.

Instead, the native version is always the first choice regardless of the quality and age of the port. If I didn't look things up, I would be playing Isaac without the dlc I paid for without realizing it. And I am willing to bet there are clueless people just doing that right now.

Obviously, proton gets updated every month or even less, meaning it's always going to be better than the native ports which have multiple years behind their back and are going to be a bit outdated even if the developers put effort and time into it.

And that is assuming the developers put the time and effort. Because many ports are said to be just lazy versions created simply to make the game look more inclusive.

So with all of that being said, why should I not simply enable proton experimental for every game I play, and forget about it to have the most "windows like" experience?

Is there a default browser that Wine uses?

A game I installed (with Lutris) requires you to log in using your Google account. When I click the button that takes you to Google's login page, a window of a browser that I don't recognize pops up, with an empty url bar although the login page is on the screen. Then I enter my mail address, only to get an error from Google that says it's dangerous to sign in using the browser, so I need to use a modern one instead. This leads to an I/O error by the OS that says "could not execute the default browser".

Have you seen anything like this issue before? The browser on my computer is a snap package, could it be the cause?

I've tried restarting my laptop and uninstalling and reinstalling Steam but every time I try to launch it, it just opens a black screen. There's not even a minimize/maximize or close option, I have to right-click the icon on the shelf to close it.

I fixed Ubisoft Connect not connecting when launched from Lutris

I think it's because of FSync2. I run Arch so I typically use the latest kernel. After reading how fsync breaks Ubisoft Connect I decided to boot the 5.15 lts kernel and now Ubisoft connect will connect! I will try to set the environment variable WINEFSYNC_FUTEX2=0 with kernel 5.17 to see if it fixes the issue tomorrow.

Origin on Lutris not working

Hey guys, I've been trying my hardest to get origin to open on Lutris with no luck. I have installed the dependencies listed here: https://github.com/lutris/docs/blob/master/Origin.md and other games are known to work on my install of Lutris as well. When I open origin it just loads a transparent window basically and cannot really be used. Please go easy with me as I've only been involved with Linux for around 6 months now lmao. Specs are below:

Proton Games: How To Guides?

I recently joined the 2020s and picked up a new GPU (RTX 3060). My old GPU, a GTX 970, couldn't play lots of Proton games because of issues with DXVK, etc. So now I have the new card, but I'm not seeing any real improvements.

The games I had installed have redownloaded shader caches, but they simply don't show significant improvements in fps. Games like American Truck Simulator used to sometimes slow to a "slide show" speed, and I'd have to pause playing or restart the game when I was reduced to as little as 3fps. Now, I'm not seeing much of an improvement compared to the jump in GPU performance. From 970 to 3060 should be significant, but the same game on the same settings is only running at 20-30fps.

Other than the driver blob, is there any other specific software packages I should be installing? I managed to find out that the dxvk package wasn't installed, but what about any other Vulkan-based packaged? Or DX-to-Vulkan compatibility layers?

I'm currently running Xubuntu 22.04 with an i7-4790 (non-K), the RTX 3060, 16GB RAM, three 500GB SSDs, and a 2TB HDD. I think my hardware is robust enough (although I might want to think about upgrading the mobo and CPU) even if most of it is six years old. So I'm stuck thinking I might be missing some software that's necessary for Proton games and Vulkan rendering to do their thing.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Playonmac steam wont open LOTRO

I dont know if its a steam thing or playonmac/wine thing. I downloaded playonmac since i have the M1 macbook pro and it does not support 32bit games. I want to play lotro and i downloaded it through steam in playonmac. Lotro launcher comes up, i put my info and when i press play it just goes away and wont open. Anyone have any ideas? Im really bummed and have been trying to find stuff online but no luck.

I'm thinking about getting the quest 2 VR goggles, what are the chances I can get them to work with Linux?

A quick glance at some of the other posts on here Tommy it's not likely that they'll work. But I don't know enough about the technical side to really understand what I was reading.

Steam works with VR right? And steam works on Linux. So can I just use the VR goggles to tap into my steam and play games that way?

Or if it doesn't work with Linux at all, what's the likelihood I could get windows in a VM on my computer and then use the goggles with that?

I'm using Pop OS if that makes any difference.

But if streaming video games doesn't work at all, I could still use the goggles to connect to Linux to play videos I have saved on my computer right? Just regular MP4 files?

I'd like to congratulate System76 on an excellent operating system.

So, last week I was away from the house for an afternoon and my wife wanted to play Beat Saber. Now, I switched full-time from Windows on my gaming PC back in late February and I haven't set up the Index since. And, importantly, my wife has not touched my computer since either, in-fact she gives the occasional good natured jab at my contrarianism because I run Linux on everything.

So she has never touched a single Linux system in her life, she uses a Macbook to run her business, and occasionally plays some games on a Windows laptop that I set up for her. All this to give you some perspective on how surprised and pleased I was to come home to her having the index set up and running with Beat Saber installed all without any issues whatsoever.

That means that not only were there absolutely zero issues or configurations for her to work around, but that the process was simple and familiar enough that she could figure it out without ever having looked at a Gnome desktop before. She is of course very clever, but also not trained or technical in the slightest.

Frankly, I'm not sure who I'm more impressed by, her or Pop_OS. She said the hardest part was finding my application launcher (she had seen me use the pop-shell launcher before but didnt notice what the hotkey was), but she found the applications menu eventually. Once she was in Steam it was smooth sailing.

Can somebody please give me a list of games that run better with Proton enabled?

Better than Windows or native, I know it does happen with some games, like Elden Ring.

Also, just games you've gathered in your experiences.

[LAST UPDATE] Gave Linux another go. Closing thoughts:

TLDR at the bottom.

Hey people, so, after my bad experience with a linux distribution (project Nobara. Not recommend it for now), decided to give Linux one more time with a more widely used distribution, that's also marketed as a "simple" distribution for begginers: Linux mint. And, after messing around with it for a while, and installing and then playing some games on it for a while, I wanted to give my final two cents on my experience so far, hoping it either, helps people on the fence between Linux and Windows to make their mind, or at least helps to give the perspective of someone new on Linux.

So, from the get go, things went a bit rough: I downloaded the stable version of Linux Mint from their web site (hoping the stable version would bring less problems than a bleeding edge one), and after installing it, it doesn't recognize my ethernet adapter because it seems the stable version was too old for recognize it from my new (AMD) motherboard... Yay...

So, I connected my phone to the PC in order to share internet with it through USB, and then updated to basically the latest Linux Mint version, in order to ensure that compatibility was not a problem anymore. And so, after a couple of resets for update the kernel and the drivers, and all that gospel, Linux Mint was finally ready to be *actually* used. So this was a very annoying hitch, but nothing unfixable. Specially because outside that, the system worked well, and there weren't many problems (at least at first glance).

After that, I decided to try two games: Warhammer Total War (outside of steam) and Deep Rock Galactic (through steam) in order to see how much of a hassle was to set everything up.

Starting with Warhammer, I had a few issues from the get go again. I read a lot that one of Linux's advantages was that you could find everything you needed on the software center, so it was all much more safe and convenient than going to the webpage of a company to download the .exe files for install something on windows... But when I tried to find Lutris, it turns out it was not in the software center. So I had to go to Lutris's webpage in order to see the command lines I had to use to add Lutris to the repository, and then have it be installed... Which sounds an awful lot like going to a webpage to download a .exe file, albeit a bit different.

Also, the UI of the software center feels atrocious. You can't cancel something once it starts downloading, it shows a bar filling for the progress without any percentages or letting you see more details, and for reason the aspect of it felt a bit outdated. Overall, not something that felt good to use honestly.

But in any case, once Lutris was set up, I went on to install Warhammer. The instalation process went wihtout many hitches, except that for some reason, it took a long time for the game to install (I was installing from an ISO image I brought over from windows), but other than that, nothing really crazy. And, once I tried to start the game... It gave a message error, saying that freesync was not working. So after de-activating it in Lutris, I launched the game again, and lo and behold, it worked! The game ran without many hitches, and I made it past the tutorial for the dwarves. A few hitches, but so good so far!

Then came time to install Deep Rock Galactic, and this is when more small problems arised: When logging in steam, I noticed that "Alt + ctrl + 2" (the combination for make the "@" symbol in a spanish keyboard) didn't work. I had to use "alt gr + 2", otherwise it wouldn't write the "@" in the email. So I searched for a fix for this behaviour in Linux Mint forums, and it seems there's not a simple fix for this in Mint's configuration options (I searched all the keyboard options, and there was not option to let "Alt + ctrl" do the same as "alt gr").

Then, I realized that the numlock didn't activate itself on boot when I went to use it, and after another quick google search, I found that this one was (luckily) something I could easy change. I had to install some dependency in order for the option to highlight and let me use it, but I could make my num pad work as a num pad as soon as the system booted (why this isn't the default behaviour, I honestly don't know)

Then, came the time to install DRG, which went very smoothly, no complains there. I called a friend over discord (luckily discord was working well from the get-go), asked her to join in, and we went into a mission to check how well it played. And this was where more issues arised:

  • First: The game took a while more to load compared to my friend, all while I have better hardware. And I'm not talking a couple seconds, but full on 10-20 seconds more to load.
  • Second: There was horrible stutter whenever a new visual effect happened on the screen. I assume this had something to do with compilation of shadders? But either way, it wasn't a good experience at all at first.
  • Third: in the game you can use middle click for throw a grenade, and left + right click to make a power pick attack. As I was trying to do a power attack for clear a group of enemies, I realized with horror that by default, left + right click on Mint acts as a middle click (again, why is this default behaviour even?). So I ended up dropping a grenade in my face instead. Had to alt + tab and change that behaviour immediatly else the game was unplayable.
  • Fourth: Some minor visual problems are present in the game (There's a smart rifle weapon that has filling pips as it locks onto enemies. The pips don't go up smoothly like in windows, instead it just goes from 0 pips to whatever amount of pips it should be once you finished locking in, for name the most common one).

And after all that, we quit the game with my friend, I swapped to windows, and went on to play Valheim. To be honest, the first and second problems could have been because the game may have launched in "Direct X12" mode, rather than DX11 mode (that time with my friend I double clicked the desktop icon, which didn't give me any prompt. Today I started from steam, and it gave me the prompt for start in X12 or X11 mode, and I remember reading that x12 doesn't behave too well with proton, at least compared to x11. But even with x11 I was still having small graphical glitches).

So, after that (and after some more use today and yesterday, trying different things and settings), I have finally come to the conclusion: Linux is maybe just not for me.

From the get go, I have basically spent a lot of time fixing big or small stuff from Mint, be it behaviours that simply got in the way (left + right click = middle click), or that were annoying (num pad not being on by default), or simply having to fix stuff (mint not recognizing my ethernet at first), and I never had a "Wow that's cool" moment, or something that made me feel like Linux was more or at least equally as convenient as Windows.

The only thing I found Linux had going was that it was "free and open source", but... Being that I don't care too much about the whole "open source is better than closed source" debacle, I can't say that holds a lot of weight for me.

Reading a lot of comments in here and in other forums, I felt that Linux was going to be a pretty "plug and play" experience, but at the end, it felt just as annoying as it is in windows: In windows (after install), I have to install drivers, software, and disable tracking, and after that, I'm pretty much set to use the PC as I please. In Linux, I had to fix the small problems I encountered, and had to change a bunch of stuff for the OS to feel comfortable... only for get something that didn't perform as well as windows in gaming, that has less software options available, and that likely would have more nicknacks I would have to work out in the future (For name one thing: it annoyed me to no end that I had to write my password a bunch of times when doing some changes, which I would have looked how to change if I had decided to stick with Mint for more time)

So if I have to be honest, if someone asked me today "Do you recommend me to use Linux?", my answer would be: "Depends".

If you care about the whole "Open source" mentality; or if you don't have the money for windows; or if you care about security and privacy concerns over windows, I would say "Yes".

If you care about convenience; or if you have very new hardware/a weird setup; or if you care about the best modern games and software compatibility, I would say "No".

And since I honestly care more about the second part (especially since I have now learned how to de-activate most of window's tracking, so privacy and security aren't real concerns for me), I have to say that this is probably the end of my journey in Linux. At least until there's some big development that makes it just as or more convenient than Windows for my setup.

TLDR: Experience with Linux wasn't THAT bad, but still wouldn't recommend it, unless its being used for very basic stuff, or security/privacy concerns are a problem, or the person doesn't mind tinkering.

Low fps when running no-steam games with steam input

I have overwatch installed via Lutris. If I add it to steam it works fine it's just that my fps went from 70 to 30

Only happens when I run it from my steam library mainly in big picture

even without big picture the fps drops of about 10fps down

I use steam controller so it's a necessity. Please if someone could help me with this I'd appreciate it.

Latencyflex install

Can anyone help me notice something I missed

I have 2 gaming PC's (one is in the living room on the TV)

On my desktop I have latencyflex working, the couch one I can't get it running ( done at different times so maybe that's the issue.)

What I did: Installed latencyflex from AUR Added dxvk.conf in game folder

Latest proton-ge & proton experimental tried

Steam launch options are:


Arch Linux 5.17.7 tkg kernel (tried zen as well) 515 nvidia

Both use the same MSI 1060 6gb GPU

Only CPU and mobo differ.

Recommend me a wireless controller

I'm currently using a steelseries, but it often decides to stop working when I play wirelessly. When it's connected wired all is good, but as soon as I try to play wireless it's a gamble. It's often just fine, but occasionally it stops working or it's like the sticks get stuck in a position, even though they are not.

So, any idea for a new controller I could use? Something that works well on linux?

Has anyone benchmarked realtime kernels for CPU-bound games?

Games are very latency-sensitive; any increase has significant effects on the frame rate.
I've experienced this myself when trying to run compile jobs in the background while gaming. Even when they're at the lowest scheduling priority (SCHED_IDLE) that can allocate >99% of the CPU resources to other tasks, they still cause my game to lose ~30% of it's average frame rate (not to speak of stability): https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/684152/how-can-i-make-my-games-fps-be-virtually-unaffected-by-a-low-priority-backgroun
This is likely due to buffer bloat; larger queues -> higher latencies.

RT-kernels are supposed to offer more consistent latency at the cost of throughput which should be a desirable attribute when gaming. 160fps is nice, high throughput but I'd rather have a more consistent 140fps.
Could they help this case or perhaps even generally be useful?

Has anybody done benchmarks on this? The newest I could find is a Phoronix benchmark from 2012 testing Ubuntu's Low-latency kernel which isn't very applicable today I'd say.

How do you even use a RT kernel? Would I have to give my game a specific priority?

Inviting friends not working when using gamescope

I could use some help with getting the steam community features working when using gamescope. Whenever I launch a game with gamescope all of the 'steam' features basically get disabled (steam overlay, inviting friends, etc.). This has made playing with friends pretty tedious, as now what I have to do is launch a game and they have to join me by themselves. This might work for some games like Payday 2, but obviously not for all games. If anyone knows some fix that'd be incredibly helpful.

How to install custom dependencies like vcred into an already setup steam game.

I am trying to install mods into DMC HD collection. This game become recently playable on proton 7.x. It works fine out of the box apart from the cutscenes which are black. It does not affect me too much. More specifically I am having issues with installing dmc3's texture pack.

It uses specialk to inject the textures in windows. I am using steam tinker launch to set up specialk. For now it seems that specialk IS being hit when the game is launched. (I hear the classic mgs alert sound which sounds up when launching with specialk) but the game immediately crashes. I think this is due to the version of specialk I am using neededing vcred2019.

I am not sure how would I go about installing this. If someone knows please let me know how, it would be especially helpful to know if I can do it directly within steam tinker launch.

Current State - Star Citizen with Lutris

Hi Everyone,

Is here someone who currently plays Star Citizen on Linux via Lutris? I'm currently wondering if it is worth buying the game and wanted to know how well it's running or if there are some specific Settings needed? Currently I just have the Standard Runner and the Launcher seems fine.

I am currently on an Arch Linux with an Ryzen 2600 and an 5700XT. I know I possibly won't get the best Frame Rates, but do you think the game should be playable?

Brand new SSD already at 89% health, with 15TB writtend in under 24h

Long story short, yesterday morning my laptops 1TB Seagate Firecude hybrid SSHD (basically a HDD with an 8GB nand flash storage module) that Ive been using for the last four years starting throwing errors, hanging on reboots, slowing down shutdowns to 5+ minutes. So I ran hdsentinel on it and, quite expectedly, it showed 12% health with two days of estimated lifetime left.

So I went out and bought a long overdue upgrade, a 1TB ADATA SU650 SSD, of the SLC flash type. Came home, plugged it in and I was suprised to see it was at 97% health straight out of the box. Just formatting it for bringing in my backups, I noticed it went down to 94% health in less than an hour, also mentioning 6 errors ocurred during data transfer. So I went back to the store, returned it and exchanged it for another one of the same kind.

Now this second one, was 100% healthy out of the box. I formatted it, I checked for errors and since there were none, I copied my backed up data onto it - about 440GB of mostly images and videos. So after that operation, this second SSD is claiming to be 89% healthy, with 11 errors ocurred during data transfer. To make matters even strangers, hdsentinel claims 15+TB written, while I only wrote 500GB of data onto it.

I should mention this is not a system drive, I have a dedicated M.2 SSD for my system, so there is no swap file being written here, no logs, no nothing.

Now, I'm probably going to exchange it again today, maybe the third time's a charm, but I'm wondering if there's not something I might be missing here.

Finally upgraded.

Finally upgraded from the B450 and R5 2600 to a ROX Strix B550F with RX 5600 X and now I can't get ME Legendary Edition to run. I got rid of Origin and now not sure what to do.

Payday 2 constantly crashing when running with dxvk (Terminate called after throwing an instance of 'dxvk::DxvkError'), need help solving the issue.


So basically I've installed Payday 2 and a couple of mods with it around few days ago. At first, I would be able to play for around 2 hours straight without anything going wrong, but then it would either freeze on loading a new heist or straight up crash, and since it was every two hours I didn't mind it that much. Then it became more frequently, crashing every 1 hour or, as recent, every other heist or in the same heist few times in a row, so the game is becoming kind of unplayable, and I need some help on troubleshooting or fixing it. I'm pretty sure it's not a mod issue since there's no actual crash logs being generated in the location where crash logs are located.

What I did next was I ran steam on terminal and played the game, which gave me the "Terminate called after throwing an instance of 'dxvk::DxvkError'" error everytime it crashed, leading me to believe it's a vulkan issue.

After learning this, I tried running the game on wined3d with the launch command PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1, however the performance was extremely bad, with around 40 fps tops to 15 fps on some maps. After 2 hours the game froze, but it was an improvement in stability.

I have no idea where to even start troubleshooting this issue, as searching it up online didn't really yield anything. So, here's some info:

Specs: Ryzen 5 1600x, gtx 1060 6gb running nvidia's proprietary drivers.

Distro: Arch

Launch options for the game: PROTON_FORCE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE=1 is the only option I normally use.

Running pacman -Qs vulkan gives me:

local/lib32-nvidia-utils 515.43.04-1
    NVIDIA drivers utilities (32-bit)
local/lib32-vulkan-icd-loader 1.3.213-1
    Vulkan Installable Client Driver (ICD) Loader (32-bit)
local/nvidia-utils 515.43.04-1
    NVIDIA drivers utilities
local/spirv-tools 2022.1-1 (vulkan-devel)
    API and commands for processing SPIR-V modules
local/vulkan-headers 1:1.3.213-1 (vulkan-devel)
    Vulkan header files
local/vulkan-icd-loader 1.3.213-1
    Vulkan Installable Client Driver (ICD) Loader

So yeah, any ideas on how to troubleshoot or fix this would be greatly appreciated. If needed, I can post more info about my environment/system.

Match Windows mouse sensivity

I use my mouse at 2000 dpi on Windows, with "increase pointer precision" active, but on any Linux distribution i tried the cursor seems inaccurate, and after a short time it brings pain in my wrist, setting the mouse to 2000 dpi on Linux with Open Razer does not solve the problem (but improves it slightly). Is there a way to have the exact same Windows mouse sensitivity I've used for years on Linux?

Those of you who have already tested the new open source NVIDIA drivers - What has the experience been like?

Ive never been one to install software while its still in its testing phase, because I need my PC to be as stable as possible. But for all you bleeding edge folks who have already took the new 515 open driver for a spin, what are your thoughts? How has the overall desktop experience been? Are there any positive changes compared to the closed driver? Mostly the same? What about major disadvantages?

Detect system bottlenecks in a game or application

Is there a way to know where is the bottleneck (e.g. cpu, gpu, storage, ram, ...) in the PC when running a game?

Red dead redemption r* launcher version on linux wont launch

I have bought rdr2 in the rockstar games launchera long time ago(retrospectively, a bad decision). I have installed the r* launcher with lutris, logged in, installed the game in the default path. When I press play, the launcher says loading and then the button switches to exit game(as if the game is already running) the game itself wont open though.
In the system Monitor, I can see rdr2 taking up 16% of the cpu and only 180mb of ram. Starting lutris from the terminal(lutris -d ) I only get some read access denied errors, which arent necessarily a problem(or so I have read?).

Is there a way to launch the game without the rockstar games launcher?

What are the drawbacks of forcing "Variable Refresh Rate" on X11 with Nvidia

I'm running X11 with proprietary Nvidia drivers. I have disabled VSync in KDE and (from what I understand) forced Nvidia to render all screens at the refresh rate of my highest screen. I've got one main 144fps (with FreeSync Premium enabled) and two secondary, 60fps displays.

This has been achieved in the following way:

1. Environment variables:


2. Configuration in nvidia-settings:
- Enable Allow G-SYNC on monitor not validated as G-SYNC Compatible (main screen)
- Enable Force Full Composition Pipeline (all screens)
- Disable Sync to VBlank and Allow Flipping in OpenGL settings.
- Export the settings to /etc/X11/xorg.conf

3. Modifying /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
- Set Option "UseNvKmsCompositionPipeline" "false" inside the Section "Screen" block (in order to combat high idle usage of the GPU)

This, more or less, works like a charm. Everything runs super smooth (dragging windows around, playing games, general desktop usage) and there's no tearing present on any screen.
Naturally however it doesn't come without a cost... but what am I sacrificing exactly? What other disadvantages come with this method besides rendering too many frames for the secondary monitors?

PS. This is obviously not VRR, I know it's not possible on my current setup. It roughly mimics the user perceived effects of what VRR could do if it was supported in X11

Trying to get GZDoom game to work

Hi, So I'm trying to get a demo game known as Operation E.C.H.O. To work (https://greenlegacy.itch.io/opecho) and its using something called GZDoom, which is some kind of DOOM engine? I installed GzDoom it on my system (Manjaro KDE), and tried running it in both bottles and lutris, and get two distinct error messages.

Where does Proton log what it is doing?

I'm sorry if this is the most basic, but I have been hanging around protondb and tinkering a little and I'd like to up my game so I am wondering where I can find the logs to try and track down the errors that games which are not launching are throwing when they attempt to launch.

Thanks in advane and sorry for posting a probably really basic dumb question.

DXVK does not work with anything

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question or not , i am sorry in advance if its not.

Unfortunately , i can't get DXVK to work with anything , I have a vulkan compatible GPU and i am using Windows. I expected for it to work so i can maybe get some better fps in old games but it seems like it just fails to launch for some reason.

Its always something like Failed to Locate Module and similar and the game would crash before it even starts

Executable not recognized/installation not complete?

I'm running Linux Mint 20.3 with the latest Lutris, Wine, and Mono. I originally installed and ran a number of old combat games -- Steel Fury, Achtung Panzer, Steel Armor: Blaze of War, etc., successfully. Then I wiped and reinstalled Linux Mint, including Lutris, Wine, etc. Whenever I now install and try to run these programs, I get a "no executable found" message "with installation not complete.". This includes Steel Fury, which DOES in fact run, despite that weird message. Anyone have any idea what I might be missing or doing wrong?

Help getting James Cameron's Avatar: The Game to run

Hey everyone,

Ive recently just got the Steam Deck and as with a lot of Deck users, Im new to Linux.

Anyways, Im trying to get Avatar: The Game to play but having issues with it launching. As this game is not available anymore, outside of the CD (which isnt an option due to no disc drive in the deck), Ive downloaded the DODI Repack.

Ive added the .exe to steam and using Proton GE, it begins to launch but then crashes once it shows the first loading image. If anyone could provide any help or assistance with getting this to works Id very much appreciate it. I use to love this game back on PS3 when it first came out and Id really like to give it another play.

Also, Id be happy to purchase it again if anyone does happen to know of a place I can purchase a digital copy thatll be easier to get running or anything to this.

Thank you!

State of Linux and laptop support?

The long and short of it is that I'm not planning on switching over to Windows 11 once the support period for Windows 10 ends. I know the Dell XPS series comes in a Linux variant. There was a company dropping rebranded Cleo laptops but tested to make sure everything works. What else is there?

Hardware-wise, I just need basic stuff working: wireless, keyboard, trackpad, camera, large/fast SSD, USB peripherals like external SSD, battery life that isn't trash, a modern nvidia GPU, etc... I don't need a fingerprint reader, face ID, etc..

Software-wise, as long as VirtualBox works, I can do 99% of the thing I need. The only missing piece for me is ShareX (alts that support Linux aren't there yet in terms of features).

Apex legends

Hello. I have just installed Apex Legends through steam, and when I try to boot it up, the EAC banner pops up and before it finishes, it disappears. In steam, the game appears as if it wasn't open as soon as the banner disappears. I have tried using ProtonGE, Proton experimental, and proton 7.0.2.

I am using Debian Bullseye and GNOME

Mangohud not working properly.

I just switched from Manjaro to Vanilla Arch and while Mangohud was running just fine yesterday on Manjaro, I am now having issues with it on Arch.

Specifically talking about Albion Online, a native OpenGL game. Mangohud works fine with Goverlay and also with the Albion Online launcher, but as soon as I start the actual game, the hud disappears.

Running Arch with nvidia-prime enabled.

Any ideas?

Elden Ring Launch Issue

Hi There, I made the switch to PopOS 22.04 LTS from Win11 this weekend and so far everything has been working flawlessly, except for one thing: Elden Ring doesn't launch properly. I use Proton Experimental and when trying to launch the game I get the initialization screen for EAC. After that Steam states that the game is running, however it doesn't open the game and there is no process running either. Sometimes, after a couple failed tries , it will start without issue, but it is very inconsistent. Maybe some of y'all could point me in the right direction to get it sorted. :)

making games on linux (industry standard tools that aren't supported)

playing games on linux has become better by leaps and bounds over the past couple years

but what about making games?

of course there are great options out there, but there are still tools that are standard in the industry keeping people on windows

  • visual studio (yes vscode works on linux, but plenty of game devs still rely on vs proper)
  • adobe (artists still use photoshop, and switching to GIMP or other alternatives involves quite a bit of re-learning)
  • ableton (or other DAW software, same thing as adobe, skillsets tied to proprietary tools)

so from a practical stand point, what would it take to make an entire studio running linux a real possiblity?

visual studio seems like the easiest one to move away from, just need to have a decent dev env where someone can quickly hit a button to build/debug their changes

it's the artists trained on proprietary tools where it gets complicated. part of me wants to push for more adoption of FOSS alternatives to proprietary tools, but that's a tough sell.

it feels like trying to push game devs to release native linux ports, it's possible, but it isn't what has driven the massive growth in gaming on linux in the past few years.

so, creative cloud on linux? should we push for adobe to support wine? find an eccentric billionaire to buy out adobe and open source all the code? meme GIMP to the moon?

it's a thought that's been stuck in my head for a while. i want to see linux (and the FOSS movement) succeed, and for that to happen people need to be able to work on linux.

i'd love to hear others thoughts on this. thanks for reading!

Lutris gpu not being utilized

I wanted to test out if I could use FSR with Pillars of eternity: Deadfire (the linux version is pretty hard to run stable at 4k 60fps), so I launched the windows version with Lutris using lutris-fshack-7.2 runner version (also tried the glorious egroll runner), but the game is having terrible performance issues, where the gpu is idling at 10%~ usage and I'm getting 17-20fps in game. I tried turning on/off all the runner features like dxvk, esync etc, but that makes no difference. The gpu clocks seem to spike up to the boost frequency every few seconds and then instantly drops to idle where it stays that way until the next spike. This does not happen with steam games running via proton and is only present with POE in lutris.

Any idea what might be happening here?

My setup:

Distro: Manjaro (latest kernel and mesa from repository)

CPU: amd 5900x

GPU: amd RX 5700

Ram: 32gb 3200mhz

05/15/2022 06:56:13 CEST

Surprisingly low performance, notably on CSGO

I'm rocking a Ryzen 5 2600 and an RX 6700 XT. With all my software (Void Linux) up-to-date including Mesa 22.0.3 and Vulkan loader+headers on 1.3.211.

I already made a thread about not being able to ray trace, and while that mystery is mostly solved, I'm noticing that my games just aren't running as fast as they maybe should. CSGO on minimum graphics settings, with -vulkan, has a very unstable framerate between 80~120. I feel like this hardware should easily be pulling 144 vsync. A Hat In Time on latest GE-Proton7-16 usually holds above 150FPS but occasionally stutters or briefly drops below 100.

I doubt my CPU is a bottleneck, and I can't think of what else might be the issue. Everyone else on planet Earth seems to be running Vulkan CSGO at over 200FPS on hardware around these specs. I had wondered whether the schedutil CPU frequency scheduler was throttling my processor, but just loading the game's main menu instantly brought the frequency up to max, so that can't be the issue.

Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated, and I'd rather not buy a new CPU until socket AM5 has some hardware under its belt.

Linux gaming ready!

So I finally made the switch from Windows to Linux as my daily driver. So far I am loving it. I was watching Titus and set up my system for gaming. I know the kernel is not the newest, but it has been running much more stable than what was preinstalled on Linux Mint 20.3.

I went with Liquorix for the kernel and it runs like a dream. Are there any other tips I need to know about? I haven't installed Lutris yet but getting ready for it. Games are running so much smoother and I am loving it for sure.

Installing Linux on a Asus ROG Zephyrus

Hello, I have been looking for good proper resources to try to install linux on my gaming laptop which is an Asus ROG, I managed to install linux 20.04 LTS and after gaming with it for a few months I honestly feel disappointed. Since this was my first time using linux I am not sure if I really did everything I can to make my experience better. Such as modifying the kernel or what exactly I should do to improve my performance. I decided I wanted off of Ubuntu and will change distros entirely. My question is, for ROG, what's the distro yall would recommend? How should I modify my kernel (if need be), what should I do first right after installation? How do I manage my drivers such as Nvidia? I am hoping this post will also help others in my situation. If anyone has good resources or knows what to do, thank you for replying.

Lutris D2R on Linux Crashing (integrated graphics)

Hey guys. Been trying to get d2r working on my workstation all day and I am stuck on what seems to be a common problem where the game crashes immediately when it tries to connect to battle.net.

I am pretty sure that it is the same issue this person was facing, where there was an incompatibility with integrated graphics drivers. They solved it by switching the gpu to a non igpu because they are allegedly not supported.

I am trying to figure out if there is a solution to this, because I only have an igpu on this laptop. This was during the beta I believe but I have been searching the internet all day hoping to see if it is fixed to no avail. sos :(

How to run steam games

I know this is not a primarily tech support space but I wanted to ask if anybody knew a quick fix for a problem while I'm experiencing trying to game on Linux Mint 20.3 cinnamon.

I have an 11700K and a Radeon HD 6850. When I launch games with steam play it runs on the CPU instead of the gpu, even when using the directd3d = 1 %command%.

Any ideas? Trying to play oblivion, btd6, btd5, skyrim, The Ultimate Doom and Deus Ex GOTY on steam.

If this post is not allowed I can take it down, I would still be able to play Terraria and Starbound in Minecraft okay but would be disappointed cuz I thought I would be able to play those games since they ran perfectly well on this GPU in windows.

Optimus on Manjaro. How to set it up?

Hey, I want to install Manjaro on my laptop. It has an Optimus setup (regular ass Optimus with no MUX switch unfortunately) with an RTX 2070.

I want to know how I should set up the Nvidia drivers so that I can "easily" switch between GPUs. Now, to be clear, I am completely fine with having to reboot in order to switch GPUs. That's fine by me. But I just want to know how to set it up.

That being said, if hybrid mode is actually good then that's fine too.

Just started using big picture mode on steam. I love it, its like using a console. The Xbox controller working perfectly ;

Okay so recent night, I finally got a the urge to play some games. I also didnt want to use my keyboard and mouse. I decided to use steam big picture mode. I got to say, it works great! The Xbox console works with some issues mainly around refusing to connect without a cord. Decided to first download all my lego games which works perfectly! I am planning on playing them all next in the next few months.

Is there a way to make Steam use all cores when compiling shaders in the background?

I don't often boot my gaming PC, and consequently I have to upgrade the system, and most of my games, before I can actually play anything.

This is fine, but the worst part of the whole process is waiting for all of the shaders to recompile. It takes forever, because it only runs on a single core.

Is there any way to speed this process up so that I can get to playing quicker?

planning to switch to linux from windows, but concerned about some stuff.

hey soo im quite new to this topic and iv been researching about switching from windows to linux, but im still quite confused, especially for gaming.

will i be able to run stuff like microsoft office apps? will i be able to download games from xbox gamepass? i have some more questions but these are the most important ones.

iv wanted to do that because i like trying out new stuff soo having a different operating system sounds fun, and i heared running linux would make my pc a bit faster, but there is stuff that im concerned about and some are about games.

also idk which distro should i go for, fedora or ubuntu? or maybe there is another distro that is better for gaming

my pc specs are: ryzen 5 5600g 16gb ram no graphics card (planning to get an rx 6600 or 6650xt soon)

i play games like overwatch, roblox, minecraft, and osu, and some other older titles like call of duty bo1, and some that doesnt have anti cheat built in.

i can probably run steam games via proton, but what im concerned about the most is that can i run overwatch and roblox natively without any problems? and will i get worse performance for running on linux?

or do i have to buy a new hard drive to dual boot to windows just for these games?

id also like some tips about these stuff, like maybe i forgot to mention something important before i switch.

Minecraft Education Edition on Linux

Did anyone here try to install Minecraft Education Edition on Linux?

I know it's theoretically a Windows UWP app. I've downloaded it from https://aka.ms/downloadmee , extracted it using unzip (twice, there is a nested archive inside), and tried to run it on Ubuntu 20.04 with Wine 7.8 from winehq.org.
It didn't work. I've installed winetricks and used it to install vcrun2019 and d3dx11_43.

It has shown some progress, because the game was able to start. But it hang after pressing the login/signup button.

GNOME Multi Monitor / Disabling VSync

Hey, I absolutely love the gnome desktop experience however my one issue is that my setup consists of two monitors, both 1920x1080 however my main runs at 165hz while the secondary runs at 60hz. I understand that with the way X server works, it's kind of difficult to have multiple refresh rates, and so it just shows 60hz on both. All the answers I've found to this regard disabling vsync but the guides on how to do that in gnome are either incredibly unclear or are severely outdated. Has anything changed or is there a good solution to this? For reference I'm perfectly fine with having tearing on my second monitor as it just runs Discord or Spotify or whatever else I need.

I wrote this a while back and managed to disable vsync on a previous install by disabling something in nvidia-settings, but ive been messing with it for a couple hours now and i cant find any combination of settings that works the way it did last time :/ Ive also realised that this is less of a GNOME issue and more of an nvidia issue as fixing it last time also worked for plasma and xfce (dont ask why i had 3 DEs installed).

System Info:
OS: Arch, using Xorg
GPU: Geforce GTX 1060 6GB
Monitor 1: 1920x1080 @ 165hz
Monitor 2: 1920x1080 @ 60hz

Keep shaders of New World?

Hello dear community,

some weeks ago I switched from Win11 to Manjaro completely and didn't regret it.

I just have one question: Every time I start New World, I have stutters, when loading new textures. Is there a way to "keep them", so the stutters will be less.

Frametimes are a nightmare when new areas or animations are loaded - worst case um to 4000ms :-(

Kind regards

Sekiro trouble, low FPS, how to solve?

I know this game is limited to 60 FPS by default. However, using Proton 7.0.2 I am getting FPS drops, certainly doesn't feel like solid 60 FPS. This is the only game in my catalogue that doesn't perform well (for reference, I am running BF1 at smooth 100+ FPS on same Proton).

If it helps, I am using RX580. I tried experimenting with graphic settings and setting the networking mode to offline, doesn't seem to help.

Any ideas?

NVIDIA 515 and GNOME on Wayland: HDMI finally works!

The day I've been waiting for long has finally come: on GNOME 42.1 on Wayland, after installing the new NVIDIA 515 driver I can finally plug an external HDMI monitor into my laptop and everything works as I expected and as it does on Windows, in any configuration: joined, mirrored and external monitor only!

[UPDATE] I tried installing Linux... so far not going well

Hey, I'm the same user that posted about asking advice on distros to install since I was buying new pc parts, and wanted to give Linux a try. And so far, I have to say... It's not going well.

I installed windows, went through the usual motions installing drivers and apps needed, and so far I have had the same experience I'm used to, nothing too big or bad.

Now I got to install Linux, and after creating a bootable USB (I chose "Nobara project" as my distro, since it seems to be a fedora with a few usability stuff included), and after starting and installing it in a SSD drive, the problems started from the get go:

  • I press f11 to get to the boot menu, and despite installing Nobara project in one disk, there are two options to boot linux in the boot loader.
  • I don't pay it much mind. Choose first one, and just get into it > There's a screen for boot nobara project > It starts normally, but everything looks glitchy. A pop up appears asking if I want to install Nvidia drivers > Hit yes and wait > takes a while, and later asks me to restart
  • Now there's 2 options in the screen for booting nobara project. I choose one at random, and can't login (screen goes black > goes back to login screen)
  • I tell myself "maybe I chose the wrong nobara project boot option?" and restart. Choose the other one. Now it logins, but screen goes black...
  • I reboot back into windows for write this.

So yeah... So far, windows didn't give me much problems (I had to go through the lengty process of installing drivers and all, but that went without any hitches), while Linux seems to have crapped the bed somehow by... Trying to update the Nvidia drivers... Great.

So unless someone tells me that I somehow did something wrong (like, choosing the wrong booting option... but yet again, while would there be more than one booting option for linux if I literally installed it once in one drive?), it seems like the wrost possible start so far.

Cant launch Squad or Insurgency Sandstorm as the game crashes out right after the EAC loading process is finished.


The two games have very similar errors in log. dxgi.dll and other dlls fail to load and initialize according to Proton logs. Other things like libvr also faces issues.

Ready or Not, a UE4 game, also doesnt work, but experiences different errors.

All other games running on different engines work.

I cant access logs right now, but I will upload them when I can.

Hardware: i5-6500 Intel HD530 AMD HD6450 running in GPU passthrough mode (VFIO passthrough GPU) 16GB DDR3 1600 MHz RAM Installation partition of the games is on a 100+750 GB combined BTRFS partition Mesa 22.04 is the driver version Software: Arch Linux Vanilla installation with KDE Plasma Desktop and Linux-Zen kernel

Ive tried running the desktop in X11 and Wayland Reinstalling Steam by purging its installation directory Tried Flatpak Steam instead of native. Tried Proton GE. Tried purging compatdata to force Steam to reinstall it. Tried following the Squad Linux guide to fix it Tried disabling paranoid mode to fix it

None of these work.

The curious case of Doom Eternal

Let me start off by saying this is not a request for help but more of a rant on the state of this game on my hardware.

The hardware I am referring to is as follows: Ryzen 7 3750H with Vega 10, GTX 1650 and 16 GB of RAM.

I purchased Doom Eternal after it came out on BethesdaNet since i was able to get it at about half price for the pack with the two expansions, and I was able to play it on the same hardware (running through Lutris at the time since...Bethesda Launcher) with good enough success and honestly, not many issues. Everyone was saying at the time "don't buy it on bethesda, get it on steam" but, meh, i made it work and was able to get good enough performance to finish the game and collect/unlock everything.

Fast forward to these days and the Bethesda Launcher games are migrated to Steam. I don't mind that since i don't have to mess with that janky launcher, and i even found a backup of my saved game to migrate. Awesome so far ! Why not give it a try, maybe rip and tear a bit since it's so easy to install and get running with proton.

I was on openSUSE Tumbleweed, already had steam installed and proton-GE setup, gamemode was there too so by all accounts it was just a case of install and play (oh silly me !). Downloaded the 90 GB of game to the nvme drive (just in case texture streaming is hitting a bottleneck in terms of drive speed) and once that was done i hit play. The bethesda screen comes up and bam ! - video memory allocation error.

Hmm, i don't remember ever seeing that error before. Let's check ! 510 drivers installed (the opensuse ones come from nvidia servers) vulkan is working, hell dxvk vkd3d and opengl all work. Tested Diablo 3 in lutris and that worked fine, tested GW2 in lutris and it was ...ok (but that is the norm with that game), tested a few games in steam proton and those worked fine too. This is odd... open Eternal again and the same error. A protondb search later and i am baffled, reports from the steam deck of it working and errors on regular pcs of the same error i was getting. Again, not something i encountered back when i played the game.

One of the posts there mentioned it might be the nvidia drivers and that it works on the 470 driver. Nuked the 510 drivers, installed the 470 ones and yes.. the game starts. It does give an error about the drivers being out of date but it does start. What happens if after i get it working i switch back to the 510 ones ? Well, it stops working and opensuse decides to crap out on me. I manage to get the 510 drivers up and running properly again and think to myself "what if i start the game directly from the doom exe instead of the idtechlauncher. It works ! (sort of) The game starts with no video memory allocation error ! (hahaha) But the framerates ? Barely 60 in the menus, strange, i go and set everything to low, the same and the resolution scale that's set to dynamic seems to stay full time on 50%. Even setting the game to 800x600 has the same issue. Maybe they changed something in an update to the game since i last played it, or maybe i borked something with the nvidia driver when i switched it back.

Let's try on some other linux distro. Arch ! Same results. I even attempted to play super gore nest and oh boy, the big arena with the three locks ? that tanked my framerate from an unstable 35 to 10...WTF ? Maybe it's the drivers, something that is already baked into the system would surely work better. Onward to PopOS ! (thank you ventoy)

The new PopOS installed, nvidia drivers working, and just to make super dooper sure, i set the system to use the nvidia card by default, just ignore the igpu. Steam, download the game, memory error, bypass the idtechlauncher...same problem. At this stage i am about to give up on the entire thing. The only thing i could try would be windows ...bleah.

A couple of days later, with this still gnawing at my neurons, i decided to install windows 10 (i do have 11 but considering i have seen worse performance on that in other games and that it was not a thing when eternal came out i went with 10). After what felt like an eternity in installing updates, the drivers and everything, i am ready to start doom eternal. Nope ! New error ! "No display adapters"

What ? How ? Why ? Device manager clearly shows both the igpu and the dgpu and they are both working fine. Turns out there is an issue with optimus systems and this game in particular where it does not like to see the igpu and the proposed solution is to disable it. Since i don't have a bios option to turn it off, i disabled it in the device manager. Same error, fine, i'll reboot the system...again. Still a nope, i enable the igpu and the game magically starts and works fine...Wow ! Just to make sure i wasn't remembering wrong i take a look at the recommended settings from geforce experience for doom eternal and they were definitely higher than the "everything to low" i was using to test so far, some are even on very high.

Unable to stand windows clogging up the machine, i installed linux again and sort of gave up on it. Today i decided to try again. Fedora 36, steam flatpak and a little more patience.

At this stage I am not able to say where the fault is with this game. I know it works fine with video cards that have more than 4GB of vram but, on the absolute lowest settings for the game (without going into potato territory via console settings), the game should fit in the 4GB just fine. It might be the nvidia driver but that doesn't explain the windows issues and other games work fine on the same driver.

What i was doing to start the game on linux, (bypassing the idtechlauncher) was working indeed but, and this explains the performance i was getting, the game was ever using 512 MB of vram. The ingame settings were showing the full 4GB and it was set to use 2700MB of it but it just wasn't allocating it. Turns out the vram allocation is done by the idtechlauncher ( for reasons ? ) and when that tries to start, it allocates about 3800MB and when it requests an extra 512 MB (probably the same the doom exe is allocating) it obviously runs out of vram.

The only way i have been able to get the game to launch is by setting the display resolution to something like 1024x768, at that point the launcher doesn't run out of vram (for some reason) and the game runs at 150 to 200 fps since it's a crap resolution. At this point i have no clue who to report this to, is it an issue with the id launcher (i tend to think it is), the nvidia driver ? Both ?

Radeon better fan management apps?

i had mad a post looking for a good fan app for radeon 6000 series cards a while back, but now im on arch based linux (manjaro kde) and i re-evaluate the question.

is corectrl the ONLY option? it misses so many features opposed greenwithenvy

whenever im playing a game and it gets to a intense spot the fans SPIKE up and down quickly and constancy and is VERY annoying. greenwithenvy had a delay timer which allowed it to not ramp up unless a sustained temperature was detected.

radeon-profile dosent seem to work anymore/abandoned (shows no gpu)

Are there any good Proton supported games with PS4 Crossplay?

Long story short, I am jumping from Linux to Windows for a while.

Lately I decided to hop on the train for a full ride and I will probably install Fedora 36 to start my journey again (I used Ubuntu, Manjaro, Arch and PopOS).
I use CentOS for work so I feel comfortable using Fedora.

Anyway, I have a friend with a PS4 and we usually play together on weekends. He doesn't have a gaming PC so we need to settle for Crossplay games.

From my experience, I know some titles that support Crossplay are running pretty good with Proton for example :

  • Apex
  • Rocket League
  • War Thunder
  • Brawlhalla

We found another game called Rogue Company but sadly EasyAntiCheat says "NO".

Looking for further recommendations. The genre doesn't really matter much as long as it's COOP / Crossplay multiplayer.

How can I Use Gamescope/Mangohud to Limit Game FPS on Steam when Running a Game from a Lutris Desktop Shortcut?

Basically what the title says.

I've got some games running through Steam from Lutris that I'd like to be able to use the Steam Deck's built in FPS limiter for.

However, it seems that the overlay doesn't do anything when importing a game in Steam from a Lutris desktop shortcut.

Is there any way to enable the FPS limiter for these games?

Weird Steam issue

After a recent update, if I suspend and resume my PC with Steam open, it causes some odd behavior such as the game titles in my library disappearing when I mouse over them, any community pages fail to load and just show a blank screen, and the main store page is messed up as well

I'm on Zorin OS 15, and have been for a few years, minor graphical glitches have been normal after suspending, but are always resolved by simply clicking over to another page and back, it's never been this bad, and I'm fairly certain it was caused by the recent update, I just want to know if anyone else is having this issue, and if anyone knows how to fix it, fully closing and reopening Steam works, but that gets super annoying to have to do every time you suspend

Run a python script through Steam?

hey people, I am new to Linux so apologies if I say something dumb. I just got hold of a Steam Deck (runs Arch Linux) and I am trying to make Steam run a python script.

I have my .py script, I have created a .sh file that simply call the script and created a .desktop file that runs the .sh but when I add it on to Steam it does nothing.

I have also made my .py script executable through pyinstaller but it still doesn't work when I want to launch from Steam neither if I load the executable on Steam or a .desktop linking to the exec.

The script needs my input so it has to run through Konsole. The only thing that made it work is adding Konsole on Steam and then cd to the folder containing the script and running from Konsole but I would like the script to run directly

There seems to be a tiny increase in min fps, same can be seen in phoronix tests, which could mean improvement in gameplay smoothness (tho all results are on "margin of error" territory). Sadly I cannot test the 1% and 0.1% fps, hope to see it done by somebody soon.
Hope this was helpful to somebody.

PSA: HDMI Freesync can be enabled on Polaris

I've got hdmi freesync working on my RX 480 + Iiyama GE2288HS (HDMI-only freesync monitor from 2016). It seems like AMD can't parse the EDID block containing the VFrequency range in driver, hence the requirement for GPUs with a DMCU. I simply hardcoded the values for my monitor, maybe someone wants to implement a proper kernel module parameter.

Steam keeps forgetting about my already installed games?

22.04 LTS

I have a dual boot system (Win10 and Ubuntu) and whenever I restart Ubuntu, Steam forgets about the games I already have installed. Steam is on my boot drive and my Steam games are on a secondary drive allocated exclusively to Ubuntu.

I go to click on the icon to launch say Elden Ring and instead of launching, it asks me where to install it. If I go to Steam > Settings > Downlaods > Steam Library Folders, it doesn't even show Steam folder on the other drive.

This issue has randomly (but only temporarily) fixed itself previously and pops up constantly whenever I restart, so any help is greatly appreciated!

Now, I can't launch the game because button is broken. And I want to try playing this game with Proton, as WINE has some problems when it loses focus (when I come back to window, the game is not frozen, but none of the UI elements work when clicked, even tho the tooltips on hover still display).

Which to keep?

Managed to snag an EVGA 3080 XC3 Ultra for $810, as well as a 6800 XT Red Devil for $680 (open-box). Unsure what to keep for mixed Linux gaming.

Ive been using the 3080 for about a week, and while its great on Windows, the inability to undervolt gives me high temps and loud fans on Linux.

Just snagged the 6800 XT today. Is it the better long term move?

I game on an ultrawide at 3840x1600. Not quite 4K but higher than 1440p.

Xubuntu vs Gentoo Xfce for 4GB RAM, T6500, G102M Laptop

Hi, I have a fossil laptop which has 4GB RAM, Core2 Duo T6500 and NVIDIA GeForce G102M. I installed Xubuntu recently and have been using it for some time. I had always been afraid of Gentoo, until recently. (I managed to install it on a virtual machine. It wasn't difficult at all). The thing is, Gentoo is way less bloated and far more optimized. If I install Xfce on Gentoo, will it make a huge difference compared to Xubuntu?

I haven't been able to get Kingdom Hearts to work on Linux because of my Graphic Card, I think

I have an Acer Aspire E15 (E5-575G-57D4) with a Nvidia Geforce 940MX. (More device info here:https://pastebin.com/embed_js/ViPVzrnX)

Literally any game other I have tried worked at least, weather or not it was lag free was up to the games requirement. And before you ask yes I have tried: https://github.com/FlaareZero/Kingdom_Hearts_Collection_Linux/blob/main/how_to.md I have tried anything I could find, I even tried different distros and the closet I can get is no picture, but only sound. and the occasional screen turns a different color.

I'm at my wits end I've been trying for over a year to get it to work on Linux. It works on Windows for sure, but I'm since Switch from Windows to Linux. Maybe there's something I'm missing, was hoping someone else had a good idea or something. If you need anymore info I'll be happy to provide it. Thank you.

Flatpak: Steam (Proton) + Wine

Hi, guys.

Does anyone know if it's possible to run Proton games with Wine when both are installed as Flatpaks? I uninstalled "regular" Wine and installed the Flatpak version, but now the Proton games won't run. I've tried changing the permissions of the Steam Flatpak but that didn't work. I guess I could reinstall the "regular" version again but I'd really like to know if it's possible to keep it as a Flatpak.

Steam Play Games crash as soon as they launch

I have just made the switch to Manjaro and am trying to get all my games to work again. I have enabled steam play in the steam runtime app, but when trying to run the Elder Scrolls V, it crashes as soon as it starts. For some background, my PC has an AMD A10-7700k Radeon R7, and I am using Proton 7.0-2. I don't have much experience with drivers on Linux, but when running steam from the terminal got some errors related to Vulkan. However, running steam in this way now results in no terminal output for some reason. When I try to verify the game install, i get that one file couldn't be verified and needs to be reacquired, but nothing happens.

recommended resources for learning the Linux graphics stack?

I'm currently learning about the Linux graphics stack, are there any recommended resources for explanations about the concepts like DRI, DRM, kernel, and graphics API?

Here are the resources that I currently learning: - a trip through the graphics pipeline: the best resource I found that explains the software, hardware surround the graphics pipeline. - DRI wiki and its reference - DRI freedesktop wiki - Mesa3d docs

It is too much component and sparse information for me and the misleading expression (such as the "driver" meaning in various contexts is ambiguous, graphics API runtime + umd + kmd, or just kmd?) often confuses me, maybe I need to read the above resources as much as I can, and collect what I am confused about and make a post, before that I wonder is there a guideline like [a trip through the graphics pipeline] or other worth reading? And I think the related blog and books are great forms that often organize the info more readable and smooth.

Is there a way to get the account ID needed for Chiaki in Windows?

Sorry if this is wrong place for this. I'm getting my Steam Deck today, but don't have a USB c to USB connector for mouse and keyboard. I can still do it, but it'll be a pain. Any way to get the account ID to use with chiaki on Windows?

The Nvidia open source kernel driver seems to contain the first ever open source implementation of HDMI 2.1

AMD has refused to implement HDMI 2.1 support in their kernel driver for their RX 6000 gpus citing the fact that the closed HDMI forum spec prevents them from implementing it.

However like someone pointed out in the issue here it seems that the new Nvidia open source kernel driver supports HDMI 2.1. I looked myself and there is a lot of code for HDMI FRL, the new HDMI 2.1 transmission mode that supports 4k@120hz@444 . There even seems to be code related to HDMI forum VRR another very important HDMI 2.1 feature.

If this can lead to HDMI 2.1 support in the AMD driver it is excellent news for people who own TVs that can do 4k@120hz@444

game crashed and will not start anymore - elden ring

Game used to work (played it quite a lot). And only problem was that sometimes i would need to start it a couple of times before it would run. But when it would go into full screen then it would normally work.

I was checking some info on browser and when I came back to the game (which I also did many times before) and when I cam back the game was frozen. Since then the game will not start anymore. It goes into full screen but it crashes directly after.

Was trying to find a solution tried runing with nofsync and esync. Tried with proton GE, experimental and bleeding edge. I tried to reinstall the game. Still the same problem.

my specs are:

OS: Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS

KERNEL: 5.11.0-38-generic

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti

How to overclock your monitors in Linux?

Hi guys, Linux novices here. My second day on the Linux platform! I'm now using Garuda Linux, and I'll say that it's the only distro that works right out of the box, which is great for those like myself who are new to Linux. Some games I played, such as Sven Co-op and CSGO, do work, and the performance is excellent or even better than Windows 11!

Returning to the original question! How can I overclock my monitors in Linux? I did found a solution on YouTube, but it's confusing and look pretty outdated too. I first needed to edit EDID files with AW EDID Editor, a Windows.exe programme, and I was able to alter the EDID.bin file. Suddenly I need to make changes to etc/X11/xorg.conf. What a guy stated following that in the video puzzles me. I utilise Bottles to get the Windows software to run, and I'm impressed that you can run a Windows software.

Is there any other way to get around this? I'd like to increase the refresh rate of my 60Hz monitor to 75Hz. In Windows, I can overclock my monitor to 75.022 Hz by utilising a programme named Custom Resolution Utility (CRU) without any issue. Is there no GUI like CRU or an wasy way for Linux, given how configurable and open it is?

05/13/2022 16:07:22 CEST

Solved. Valve. Steam. Proton. Linux. Assassin's Creed: Origins
  • Desktop
  • Kubuntu 22.04 - Ubuntu Kernel 5.15.0-30-generic
  • Intel Core i7 w/ nVidia -GTX 1650 4GvRAM - 20G System RAM at 1333hz
  • X11 - nVidia-driver-510 (Graphics and Kisak PPA enabled)
  • Logitech Wireless Gamepad f710. In Xbox360 mode w/ Xbox360 support in Steam Client Enabled.

  • Start AC:O then when freezes or activation issue open terminal:
  • [ctl] [atl] [t] run [ killall steam ] in terminal. verifiy local files. This fixes activation issue.

  • Disable Steam Overlay in Game Properties. This fixes freezing / crashing.

  • In game if using LT f710 Gamepad switch to Playstation mode on gamepad. Gamepad now work flawlessly.

  • PROTON GE 7.17 and PROTON Experimental
  • To fix the In-Game Ubisoft " Unknown Graphics Driver " error add the Proton launch options below.

Hello, people of linux, I recently made the big switch from Windows to Arch Linux. I decided to download CS:GO In hopes of me getting good frames. Well I don't get the frames that I was hoping for, I get 100-150. And keep in mind that I have a i5-3550 with a GTX-1070 ti, this is hardware that should be taking me to at least 200 frames. Another thing to mention, I do have the proper proprietary drivers for my GPU.

FSR runs amazingly using Proton GE and the benefits are great. I could literally go on for a few more years without having to upgrade my GPU. Now.. Sometime ago someone on reddit said FSR 2.0 won't run on Linux for X or Y reason I don't remember.

Is this true? Isn't FSR 2.0 open source also?

Steam: Awful performance when playing videos with the window maximized

Playing a game's trailer in the Steam client works fine when it's just a floating window. However, when the Steam window is maximized (or fullscreen), the framerate drops significantly, to the point of making the video unwatchable.

I'm on Arch, Xorg, XFCE. GPU is Radeon HD 7790, driver is radeon. GPU acceleration and hardware decoding in Steam's settings are enabled.

I checked Steam/Troubleshooting on the Arch Wiki, but didn't find anything.

When did Elden Ring multiplayer start working with Proton 7.0.2?

I've been playing fine using Experimental since day 1 but something got updated today and the game would crash 100% after the white screen. I know the routine - EAC, then black, then white, then logo and start game. If the screen stays black, then I know the game is hung so I just kill it and restart. But I repeated got black to white to crash to desktop.

So, as a test I tried 7.0.2 and it worked perfectly, multiplayer and all. I seem to remember trying 7.0.2 a few weeks ago and it worked but did not have multiplayer.

No big deal, just curious.

Increased clock frequency on Nouveau with Nvidia kernel modules possible?

Has anybody already managed to run Nvidia cards at increased clock frequency on the open source Nouveau driver thanks to Nvidia's newly released kernel modules? From what i understand, Nvidia drivers needs to be signed with a cryptographic key to allow the actual hardware to run at higher frequencies. Are these keys somehow included in the open sourced kernel modules? Everybody seems to say that this code is going to greatly help Nouveau performance, but it seems important to first get the GPU's to run at higher than ~500 MHz.

What should I be doing to make sure I'm cleaning up all the nvidia stuff and installing all the right amd drivers? I know I'll have to remove nvidia and nvidia setting but that will probably screw with my X display config. That and the overclocking software could probably be removed.

If anyone could give some advise or point me towards some articles/guides that go through the process?

Disable annoying keyboard flashing (feature?) on Linux

Hello there,
I have a new ASUS TUF Dash F15 laptop. When it goes to sleep/suspend mode its keyboard keeps flashing. I understand this is supposed to be a feature for some reason. However it is extremely annoying and keeps flashing even when the laptop is closed. The only way to avoid the flashing lights is to turn off the laptop completely, which is not the most comfortable solution :)

I found people saying there is an option to disable this in the Armoury Crate. However I am running Linux on this machine, therefore I can not install Armoury Crate. The laptop is sold without an operating system so I assume Asus counts on people running different OS on it.

Does anyone have any advice on how to disable this "feature" ?

Nioh 2 often crashes and VRR isnt working

Hi all

I'm currently trying to play nioh 2, but I'm encountering several issues, first one being that VRR simply doesnt work. I'm running an X11 session with a 6900xt on gnome with VRR enabled (works in other games), but the refresh rate wont change when playing nioh 2. I've tried to set custom fps limits through mangohud, but it didnt help.

My second issue would be that the game likes to crash often, especially when in menus. I tried different proton version, with proton GE 7.10 being the most stable one, but crashes still happen often. Disabling esync didnt help.

My last issue is that the game stutters at times and I cant pinpoint why thats the case, switching between stances can cause fps drops.

These are the errors I get when it crashes in nioh2_d3d11.log:

err:   D3D11: CreateGeometryShaderWithStreamOutput: Rasterized stream not supported

I think Valve needs to implement a policy to enforce anti-cheat support on Linux at this point

There is no valid reason for a developer not to enable anti-cheat support on Linux at this point. In all technicality it's mostly a drag and drop for EAC/Battleye anti-cheat support through Proton. I think at this point Valve should go forward, and implement a policy on Steam requiring developers to opt-in to anti-cheat support on Linux or be penalized/removed from the platform.

TS3 Smooth Patch and Linux / Wine: How to make it work?

I asked this on r/ sims3 but then my post got removed by reddits spam filters for some reason? And then my friend told me to post this here:

On Fedora, I have gotten TS3 to work great with mods and everything, but I NEED the smooth patch; I have been unable to get it to work, following the Windows tutorial (which usually works just fine.)

Simply, I have the Smooth Patch .asi and the .exe in my bin folder as followed, when I open LD's * custom TS3 launcher OR by clicking the TS3PatchLauncher.exe alone (Both viable ways of opening it), it comes up with the same error:

'Runtime error!

Program: [The File Path]\Bin\TS3PatchLauncher.exe abnormal program termination

Press OK to exit the program'

plllEEASE someone, it's a sad world with laggy TS3. It seems like it's such a simple thing that I should be able to fix but I feel like I've looked everywhere; Not only do I still consider myself new to this OS, but looking up things on the error itself hasn't helped and finding anyone else who uses TS3 and therefore the smooth patch on Linux hasn't been successful,, so I'm hoping this helps. Thanks for reading lol!

Gaijen controls games with manual injection packet loss.

THere has always been weird occurrences since playing this game in 2016. They were few and far between, but recently it has been atrocious.

Constant pl%. I have a good connection. I try to make forum post about it and get banned. I contact support and get excuses. It doesn't end. I'm not saying it is Gaijen either; it could be EAC for all I know. It is similiar to playing in servers in germany which I am use to. One of the main reasons I played WarThunder so much is that there was a populated American server so this is really disappointing.

I have to get use to ghost shells and getting killed suddenly. Happens all the time these days. Firing on someone that is looking one way only for them to glitch right on me to get killed.

Or AA shells that are missing to suddenly strike out of no where.

Or shots to disappear and not evan register, but they always know that I fired to give local away.

Low CPU usage in games on Fedora 36 and getting low FPS

Hey Guys, I tried running DotA 2 and CS:GO on my pc and i got around 20-30 fps on both the games and my cpu has four cores and none of them were being used fully. All of them were around 17-20% (checked on MangoHUD). There were no processes running in background. Some suggestions online say that the CPU is over heating but i don't think that is the case because I can generate 100% usage using command line and to be honest if I do that while I am in game my fps goes to 40 but the game becomes jittery. I tried setting performance mode and stuff i also use feral gamemode but still no help PC specs: I3-3220 4gb ram 1TB HDD Fedora 36 LXDE x11

[native] Rise of the Tomb Raider not working on Vega56 and Fedora 35: SIGABRT(6)


I'm trying to get Rise of the Tomb Raider working on my computer with an Intel iGPU and AMD eGPU, but for some reason it either want's to start on the iGPU and only sees the iGPU (the launcher has only the iGPU as an option) and when starting with

VK\_ICD\_FILENAMES=/usr/share/vulkan/icd.d/radeon\_icd.x86\_64.json %command%\

I get a SIGABRT(6) from the launcher.

Other games work perfectly fine with the Vega56 and the game also works on my other computer with a GTX1070.

Does anyone else have problems when running the game on an AMD card?

Has anyone tried Ubuntu's Steam Snap? How is it?

I know Snaps are a controversial subject but I am honestly curious if anyone has given the Steam Snap a go. If so how was it? Was there any discernable performance impact? Do you think it brings anything to the table for Linux gaming?

6800xt stuck at 255 watt power limit

No matter what I do, my 6800xt can't exceed 255 watts. I've tried overclocking:



sudo su -c "echo '$performanceLevel' > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_dpm_force_performance_level"

sudo su -c "echo '$watts' > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon4/power1_cap"

cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon4/power1_cap shows that the value is applied but it doesn't take effect (I know this because I use mangohud in-game and it shows that I'm being power throttled at 255 watts.

I noticed that if i cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon4/power1_cap_default it returns '255000000' so I imagine it has something to do with it. I can't modify its value, I get 'permission denied'. Wondering if there's another profile I need to change or something.

I've tried gui tools like radeon-profile (which doesn't work at all) and corectrl (which works for other tihngs but power limit doesn't get applied).

Note: I've applied amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffffffff and overclocking mostly everything else works (clock, memory, fan, just voltage and power limit doesn't seem to work).

NO, Nvidia IS NOT Open Sourcing their drivers, and it's worse than it looks

Thread that explains it: https://twitter.com/marcan42/status/1524615058688724992?s=20&t=Yr7_zw0sfSI-UPVHcXFHoQ

Nvidia couldn't have their drivers in the kernel because of licensing issues with their binary blobs. They simply moved all the functionalities to firmware and they leave in the kernel some remote calls. This solves the licensing and philosophical issues but let it be very clear THERE WILL BE NO OPEN SOURCE DRIVERS, for what we think and open source driver should be. We are basically moving towards an UEFI pattern where the core of the functionalities are moved in an inaccessible hardware component which is even more a black box than before.

Now and always: "Nvidia, FUCK YOU!" - Some handsome man years ago

The issue I'm having is right when the campaign tries to load my game crashes and the audio doubles for some reason. If anyone knows how to fix this it would be a life saver!

Intel 3000 overheated and overclocked so much it broke

So first off no hate to the ubuntu mesa graphics team . It made my GPU work to the max of my intel graphics 3000 that the heat burned away the things keeping the chipset to my laptop probook 6560b motherboard off it. It definitely worked to the max with the newest drivers because it used functions that would have only worked newer integrated graphics because of the physics of how smaller transistor's burn different

Mesa Drivers messed up on Ubuntu after I updated them for no reason

My laptop was working just fine, I have a testing laptop and a prime laptop. I 'updated' my intel 3000 hd just typing in what commands the mesa website told me to , there was really no reason for me to update my laptop because everything was running just fine and I was content. I checked the release notes and went down a lot of rabbit holes and read/skimmed all of opengl documentation which tells you the intel 3000 hd came out in 2011. My main problem is that I messed up my minecraft client 'optifine' because it also uses opengl in it's docs , I guess too many dependencies were being used at the same time by the new driver update and minecraft. You see, it's only when I begin to type toxic (or anything for that manner) stuff like 'loser, get better' in hypixel bedwars is when my laptop crashes. It does this weird thing when I pull up the chat to talk when it flinkers back and forth which obviously is both optifine and the new driver from mesa are calling the same function making it clear it's shutting off and on since it's located in one binary segment (because opengl is coded in C) . My laptop is now running at 100 percent in CPU usage on my quad core processor when running minecraft now when before it may have just been a single thread or 2 doing that and my other processors with tabs open managing them at 75 percent off and on, basically it was never at 100 percent all the time. I knew I didn't need to install any new drivers since ubuntu did that preinstalled but I did it anyway. This thread isn't so much asking for help, but just to share my experience. I mean all I have to do is uninstall everything I installed but man, knowing I just got beat in bedwars because of this incident doesnt make me want to do it today. I need to lay down or take a walk. Can someone just send me a link or post how do I uninstall mesa drivers back to when it came in the kernal?

Missing mnt folder in steam

Hi! I set up my PC with Linux for the second time. Now with Zorin instead of PopOS.

I installed steam and have left all my games on another hard drive. I mounted it and now wanted to add the drive intro the steam library.

But alongside other folders I cant find the /mnt folder. Here is a screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/cz7dbZM

I'm still new to Linux. So maybe it's a totally easy fix. Have I overlooked something?

Thanks in advance!

Things I have noticed while playing GOG-version of Cyberpunk using Lutris.

Some of my optimizations for Cyberpunk 2077 I have done.

  • I switched to using Fsync. You need a patched kernel that supports it, I use Xanmod. Without it the CPU usage is HORRIBLE. I just switched to an old 10-core xeon and get 70-80% usage with Esync, with Fsync it is about 50%

  • I get better performance using the Gog-Galaxy version, than the Gog-version and after I installed the game via the launcher I changed Lutris to use Cyberpunk2077.exe to bypass the launcher. You might get identical performance or the worse, but for me it is this way.

  • Gog-Galaxy launcher adds CPU-usage and sometimes refuses to launch. Not using it is optimal. Using it just to sync saves and update when next patch comes.

  • Regularly my FPS tanks and I get horrible stutter. These can happen at different situations, like using map, teleporting to CPU heavy areas etc. It is solved by relaunching the game. I also solved the mapbug by switching to windowed / borderless mode.

  • I use latest version of GE-Proton and it is version 7.11. Wine-fshack seems to launch just fine.

Overall I would say playing the GOG version on linux is pretty bad and I guess if I had better gpu than 290 I would have better experience. Not sure if the tanking and stuttering would go away. Game haven't crashed even once, which is nice.

  1. Is Steam any better, some say it is?
  2. Anyone have experience with that FPS dropping to single and under 20 levels and horrible frametimes?

so, i am about to buy a new laptop which will be for work and games and i would like to run linux on it. should i get a linux focused laptop or gaming focused laptop? what would be the trade offs. for a linux laptop i am coinsidering tuxedo (only brand i can get as far as i know). i would like to get a laptop with just ryzen 7000 cpu and no gpu so that should make it easier since many non gaming laptops have only cpu which was a no no till now but with this cpu it shouldnt be a problem. if you could share your toughts/experience i would really apreciate it

Need help debugging two games that only play with gamescope

For some context:

Arch had a mildly nightmarish update for me today which was gcc updating to version 12. I figured this wouldn't break a whole lot and mesa-git and my other -git aur packages would update just fine.

Spoiler: I was wrong.

To cut a long story short, everything broke and I downgraded gcc back to version 11.2.0 and rebuilt all my -git aur packages inlcuding mesa git. Everything seems to be working fine now except Deep Rock Galactic and Ready or Not now will only play correctly if I launch them with gamescope.

My system consists of a 5900X CPU and 6900XT GPU. Logs provided are run with latest Proton-GE but I also tried Proton 7.0-2 and had the same results. I can provide any other information needed to assist in debugging.

Ready or Not

This game crashes on its own, at the end of the log it says that it failed to create a window because no driver could be loaded. Again, the game works perfectly fine under gamescope.

Ready or Not Proton Log

Deep Rock Galactic

This game has never ever given me any troubles under proton. I have 500 hours in the game and about a third of that is on linux. All of a sudden, when I click "play", it just hangs infinitely until I click "stop" manually.

The log was too long for pastebin so I truncated it to the point where I noticed that it was infinitely repeating itself.

DRG Proton Log

Any help is appreciated, again if I missed anything let me know and I'll be happy to provide.

Running Apex in Steam but there is consistent micro stutter (even after importing DXVK cache)

I'm not sure what is going on here, but its like running Apex at 30fps when its running at 200fps... It might not be micro stutter. I'm running Arch Linux in i3 using Proton Experimental (also used Proton GE, issue persists). I used the DXVK cache from here: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/t5xrho/dxvk_state_cache_for_fixing_stutter_in_apex/

Squad issues with insanely low fps at random times

Hey guys. Squad works when the EAC file is downloaded and placed in the correct directory, but there are other problems. After some time playing my FPS sometimes drops to 10 and won't go back to what it was. Also, sometimes changing resolution to a smaller one actually brings it down to 2fps. I am using Proton GE and Nvidia GPU. I thought random fps drops are due to vulkan shaders but it wouldn't go up even after 15 minutes.

Metro 2033 giveaway

Hi folks,

I've been cleaning up an old PC and found a text file containing Steam-Keys for the games Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux that I won at a raffle quite a while back. Both are Gold or Platinum rated on ProtonDB.

I already have these two games and so do all my friends, so I will give them to the first person who redeems them. Hope someone in here is having fun with them!

Metro 2033 Redux: foursixsixsixE-NM73C-T8D5three

Metro Last Light Redux: KAfive0M-IXZGzero-CeightfourKD

I've written out some of the numbers in the code, as I've heard there are bots on Reddit that try to collect such codes. Maybe this will at least make it harder for them.

Let me know if the codes worked!

Modding Fallout with steamtinkerlaunch/vortex

Hey everyone,

I've decided to play through Fallout NV for the first time, though I'd like to install some mods first.

From what I can tell, steamtinkerlaunch is installed correctly, and the game launches with stl as a compatability tool, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to actually manage mods, or in what directory to put them. Is there any of you who could help me?

Performance loss on Anno 1800 after long time playing

When I play Anno 1800 for more 1 or 2h, I noticed important performance loss that are not here at the start of the game. Things like not immediate reaction after some clicks or construction.

I checked CPU and GPU load (via nvtop) and ram usage, nothing is saturating : all three are below 70% of the maximum. However, reducing the graphics settings reduces the problem, even if it does not disappear.

I did find anyone reporting this kind of problem, I though maybe it may be wine related?

Think for the help

Anyone knows how to permanently fix the mouse pointer in games with Wayland ? Going in the settings to change it after each reboot is a little bit annoying (the fix doesn't work after a reboot). This also happens in other games, like Getting Over It (Steam). See video for demonstration.

Should I ditch my dual boot ?

I folks! Since I've switched to Linux I did not really use window. Only once or twice in something like 4 month and it was to run league of legend as It's installed on it.

I know lol.can be installed in Linux (even if it takes a bit of tinkering to have it work correctly).

I'm currently pondering if it's time for me to finally ditch window 100%

Except the occasional lol game, I don't play competitive games, so anticheat would not be an issue for me. The only thing making me afraid is for games like morrowind/oblivion/skyrim, I'd like to run a heavily modded playthrough (mostly for graphics and QOL improvements) but I'm afraid yo have issues

What do you think ?

For some reason the highest complement you can give someone for their fish dish is that it doesn't smell like fish. In the U.S. west coast anyway...

Cant launch any Steam games on Linux Mint

When trying to launch the game Squad on steam I am getting this error message EasyAntiCheat Error: Failed to create IGameCleint instance! Check that the game was run from the correct launcher. Online Play may not be available then I get to the loading screen, the yellow loading helmets move across the screen for a minute then the game crashes before it loads. Whats going on here? Im a new Linux user and if I cant figure this out today, if someone would drop some code for me to type in my terminal Id appreciate it. All the answers Im seeing online are either Its not working or Its working now with no outlined solution. Im launching with Proton 3.16-9 because that was the closest version to what another Mint user said they had used to launch theirs successfully, also launched with Proton Experimental to begin with also no luck.

I hope someone here can relate to my frustration. Linux Mint has been giving me so many miscellaneous issues Im probably going to give up and just reinstall Windows if I cant get this fixed today.

Mouse issues with native War Thunder

I tried playing native (but through Steam) War Thunder on linux (Mint, Manjaro, Fedora 35 and now KDE Neon) and had the same problem everywhere: in game camera was suddenly moving on its own(video). Looks like game can't get more than 1 "flow" from mouse because it happens only when i'm moving my mouse and clicking or scrolling simultaneously. I thought the problem is in my mouse but i used another mouse and it was the same. Also i played some other native and Proton games and mouse was working fine. Even War Thunder through Proton works fine, but there is no EAC support so i can't play my favourite gamemodes. Also, when i alt-tab, do some mouse movement, and return to the game, mouse or camera moves. I think there is something with mouse capturing. Also the game offers me 1080p and 1920x1200 resolution in settings, but my monitor is 1680x1050 and i'm not using any FSR, it's strange. I tried to set 1600x900 and 1920x1200 if there is something wrong with my 16:10 screen, but it doesn't fixes anything

Things i tried to do:

  • switching session from X11 to Wayland, but game was still X11 i think, idk how it works
  • NoMouseGrab
  • updating GPU drivers through mesa-kisak repo
  • turning off VSync, but i couldn't even check if it fixes the problem bcs it feels like 15 fps (it shows 120), it's anyway unplayable
  • changing distros (obviously)
  • running game in window mode
  • turning on/off mouse smoothing
  • this
  • changing the window manager to openbox
  • changing system mouse sensitivity from adaptive to flat
  • changing mouse report rate 125/250/500/1000

Please help, there is the inxi output, say if there is something else needed

issues running various minecraft instances and versions

As a newer Linux (Manjaro) user I have attempted to play minecraft to varying levels of success.

From rd-132211 to release 1.5.1 gives this error in console, rd-132211 seems to close the window instantly where as at least beta 1.7.3 to release 1.5.1 has the window stay open but seems to have the same error log.

From 1.6.1 to 1.12 gives this error.

1.13 onwards seems to work when using a newer java version (17) all instances before 1.13 are using java 8

Obviously I haven't tested every version but they are rough approximations of when different issues start to arise, copy paste paste from neofetch for general system info. Do you have any fixes or should I just use windows for Minecraft as well?

Apex Legends stuttering since the latest update

What are the hopes for a native modloader?

Want to install mods for Bethesda games. I've had poor luck with Lutris and WINE attempting literally exactly this to no avail previously, so I went about every other option. Found one that ran through Protontricks, try to install Protontricks, only has pipx installation (literally what even?) for Ubuntu, enter command, no installation candidate for it. Downloaded the .exe for MO2 directly, tried to run through Proton by adding it to Steam, wouldn't launch.

Needless to say, I am eagerly awaiting the day that either someone makes something native, or Vortex and/or MO2 get a port. But with how long Skyrim modding has been a thing my hopes are rather dim, surely someone would've by now. Maybe someone else knows better than me though, how are things looking on that front?

Apex Legends DXVK cache file git repo



Apex Legends season 13 is here and along with it new characters, map changes and Linux support is still enabled!

A new season feels like an appropriate time to start up this project and find a new home to continue working on this. The community really came through on this thread https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/t5xrho/dxvk_state_cache_for_fixing_stutter_in_apex/ to keep merging and adding entries to the cache file. This worked for a while and probably still does, but eventually it will be lost in the history of Reddit.

As a season 0 player I have a passion for this game and want everyone to have a great experience and provide and opportunity to allow community members to contribute. I switched to Fedora 35 Workstation around season 11 as I felt Windows as no longer the right path for me. I knew support for Apex Legends on Linux had to be coming soon, took the dive in to Linux, and haven't turned back. The day Respawn added support, I removed my Windows drive and have played Apex on Linux exclusively since then. Hopefully this a way I can give back a little to the community and everyone can enjoy the benefits.

What does this file do?

The first time a new player on Linux tries to play Apex Legends it can be a horrible experience. From occasional stuttering when a new shader is cached, to complete freezes and crashes as hundred or thousands of new shaders a processed. These problems also plague long time Apex Legends on Linux players as each new map update has a huge impact on game performance requiring re-rendering of shaders. This repository will hopefully become a large community effort to make Apex Legends on Linux a smooth and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Why do we need this?

Apex Legends uses the Direct3D 11 rendering engine which is not supported on Linux. Instead, Proton uses DXVK to provide a Vulkan-based implementation of D3D11 and 10. While this works great for most games, some have a lot of shaders that need to be accessed while you play the game. The Valve team handles most of the pre-caching of these shaders from community sourced files, but they do not distribute this one file which assists with accessing these pre-cached shaders. A more detailed explanation of what goes on behind the scenes can be found in this r/linux_gaming thread.

Instead of each player having to drop in multiple times with unplayable rendering lag and stutter, we can combine the efforts of multiple Apex Legends players by combining our dxvk-cache files using the dxvk-cache-tool created by DarkTigrus. Lutris provides a build of this tool here.

This effort was originally started by u/ryao in this r/linux_gaming thread. This thread worked well for a while but will eventually get lost in the history of the subreddit and may not be easy to find, especially for new players. Additionally, the history of the cache file is not readily available and cannot be quickly reverted in the event of a bad merge. This repository will also add more transparency to each merge, make it easier to give credit to each contributor, and can be more easily forked/transferred should I or any future maintainers decide to stop working on this project.

Using this file

View the r5apex.dxvk-cache file in this repository and click the Download button in the top right hand corner. You can also use this link to directly download the file to your computer. Copy the downloaded file to your Apex Legends shadercache folder located at /path/to/steamapps/shadercache/1172470/DXVK_state_cache/r5apex.dxvk-cache. By default this location is ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/shadercache/1172470/DXVK_state_cache/r5apex.dxvk-cache. That's it!

You could also clone this repository to your local machine and either manually or automatically pull each update and copy your local repository files to the same location listed above. This does require installing and setting up git and git-lfs for which there are many guides available online.

Contributing cache files

Fork this repository and clone it to your local machine. You will need git-lfs set up to track the cache file. Use the dxvk-cache-tool available here to combine the current r5apex.dxvk-cache file in the repository with your local r5apex.dxvk-cache file. Create a new commit with a commit message containing the current unix timestamp. An example workflow might look something like this.

Copy your local cache file to the location of the repository cache file.

cp ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/shadercache/1172470/DXVK_state_cache/r5apex.dxvk-cache ./r5apex-local.dxvk-cache

Merge your repository cache file with your local cache file. Make a note of the number of entries added by your file!

dxvk-cache-tool ./r5apex.dxvk-cache ./r5apex-local.dxvk-cache

Rename the output cache file.

mv ./output.dxvk-cache ./r5apex.dxvk-cache

Add the new file, commit, and push to your repository.

git add r5apex.dxvk-cache
git commit -m "$(date +%s)"
git push origin main

Create a pull request to this repository and make sure to include the number of new entries this request will add to the cache file! It will be cool to see how many we can add each time!

Help getting Heroic Bash sh files to boot


So I used heroic bash launcher to boot the Kingdom Hearts games through steam about a month ago on my steam deck and worked all fine. Since then I needed to replace my deck, got it back and setting it all back up. Got the games running fine on the heroic launcher, not so using the sh files from heroic bash launcher. I get an error when trying to run the sh scripts manually about the EGS launcher being in offline mode. I haven't set the game to run in ofine mode on heroic launcher so I'm not sure why it's doing that or why it's failing to connect. Interestingly if I press retry it works, but trying on steam doesn't even get that far.

Any suggestions?

Salt and Sacrifice Steam Deck Heroic Launcher Crashes

Hi, new to linux gaming with Steam Deck. Using heroic launcher to play salt and sacrifice on steam deck but it crashes at the first logo. It just freezes there. This person on youtube claims it works out of the box.

I'm on proton 7.0 Is there a setting i need to change to get it to work like in the video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZDtAII_0v4

Thank you in advance.

Does Rocket League Voice Chat works

Rocket league released cross platform voice chat feature earlier today. I played some games but found out neither my voice was reaching them not their voice was reaching me but game showed voice notification few times. I looked at helvum to see that mic was in fact hooked to the game but idk what is wrong.

Can someone else who plays RL on Linux confirm this for me. There are few oddities on my end, one being that i call game and bakkesmod to launch via a bat script.

GTX1060 passthrough to Windows VM from Ubuntu Host (with GTX980TI)

Hi peeps

I have the option to get a GTX 1060 cheap that I will use to run games in my Windows VM - my host system is Ubuntu 22.04 with GTX 980TI. Will I be able to pass the GTX 1060 through to Windows (10) for gaming using e.g VirtualBox?

VRR/FreeSync on cheap Intel Xe laptop [finally] works awesome via Thunderbolt port

Hey all, just wanted to share my results experimenting with variable refresh rate (VRR) on a cheap ASUS Intel Xe laptop running Ubuntu. I knew Intel Xe graphics supports VRR via DisplayPort 1.4, but I was having trouble getting it working out of the box. It turns out there's a trick to making it work. I'm running kernel 5.17 with the intel graphics driver. My first experiments were with a Chromium-based browser running on X, which can actually work with a VRR display if launched with the correct options (see this post for details). At first, my browser wouldn't put the display into VRR mode. Everything was set up correctly, but no VRR. The display was locked to 75 Hz. Another problem was MAME running in SDL's "kmsdrm" mode. In other words, no display or window manager at all. SDL can run using DRM, but again, no variable refresh in games that need it like R-Type or Williams games like Narc and Mortal Kombat that run at 55 Hz. No luck. What the hell?

Here's where it got weird: If I first ran a Wayland compositor, then switched back to X, VRR would then work! Huh? Well, it turns out both Weston and sway seemed to be switching on the display's VRR property via DRM, which apparently is off by default. Once triggered by the DRM call, VRR started to work system-wide, so Stadia games running on X worked with VRR and so did MAME. Awesome. I also encountered this exact same problem on a desktop machine with an AMD card. I knew the card supported VRR, but without the DRM switch, no variable refresh in certain apps. Toggle VRR on, and it works.

Anyway, I decided the proper long-term fix was to just write a small C program that will let me toggle the VRR property on the display myself via DRM calls. It can also be run at startup to do it automatically. I can make it available if anyone wants it.

I'm curious to know if anyone else has run into this problem or if my computers are just trying to kill me dead!

Cannot make screenshots in Elite Dangerous

I'm not sure if this is a Linux issue, a Proton issue or yet another dumb user issue, but I just cannot take in game screenshots in Elite Dangerous running from Steam using Steamplay. Neither can I take Steam screenshots. For other games I can take Steam screenshots but just not ED. I'm thus it's likely not a Linux issue. but wanted to rule this out first. I'm using Gentoo Linux with AMDGPU. I was using Gnome on Wayland. But I've also tried XFCE on Xorg. Neither work. Some tips on troubleshooting would be very welcome. Thanks! Cheers ferg

Need some help running Steep from Epic Game Store

Hey there,

I had switched to Fedora (36) sometime recently and I have been liking it a lot with occasional gaming here and there. I've been trying to run games that have been collecting dust and play them as a new experience and Steep was next up on the list. I have good experience and understanding of how games work on Linux including Proton, DXVK, etc...

Unfortunately however, I have been unable to find a solution for this game that does not involve pirating it (although I might as well at this point, I own the game anyway). I downloaded the game from Heroic Game Launcher as I own it on the Epic Store and it failed to launch at all, so I manually added the game through Lutris and it gave me an error message saying that Uplay was not installed. So, I installed it through a community script from Lutris.net and the client was functional as I logged in and everything. I went back to launch the game through Lutris and this time it opened the Uplay client correctly and asked me to login again, everything was loading fine on the client until it prompted me to input a code in order to activate the game (scratching my head here). I tried looking up for solutions online but I could not quite find information on the same game or other similar instances, and I eventually stumbled on this link from Ubisoft support (https://www.ubisoft.com/en-gb/help/article/activating-your-ubisoft-game-from-epic-games-store/000065272) and it seemed like a somewhat common problem but the resolution did not work even as I rebooted my pc.

So this DRM is kinda fucking me and I am not entirely sure how I would approach this issue, ideally I would want to try to fix it but it seems quite spontaneous so perhaps I will end up resort to downloading the game through other means.

Does anyone have any ideas or experiences with this issue?

Thank you for your time.

Heroes of the Storm (on Ubuntu) - with Wine


I am trying to get Heroes of the Storm to work on Ubuntu ; I use wine. In fact there is absolutely no problem it works fine - except for one thing : sometimes (regurlarly, once per game approximately), relatively randomly (or so it seems), the game crashes : its freezes, then some time after I get a "Fatal Error" message and the game closes ; then I have to relaunch the game...until it crashes again (5, 10, 15, 20, 30 mn after ?) !

If someone has an idea, had this problem and solved it, I'd be happy to hear it.

If it helps, here is what I found in the text file for the crash :



It seems it may be related to wine ; I'm not a dev' though

P.S.: I already tried my luck on "linux_gaming", but I copy/paste it here too in case you are more insightfull on the matter

Low fps and no fullscreen on the external display on a laptop with Proton


I use a two monitor Ubuntu 22 setup and the graphical performance has been satisfactory. However, when using Proton, if I use my external display: in fullscreen I get a black screen constantly, in windowed I get poor performance.


  • Nvidia drivers have been installed: version 510.60.02 (proprietary, tested)
  • Nvidia PRIME setting is set to "On-demand': If I use 'performance-mode', steam wont launch at all.


  • i7-8750H CPU
  • 16,0GiB
  • GeForce GTX 1070 Mobile

Any help appreciated.

P.S I've been 'casually' using ubuntu for years so forgive any future ignorance on my side.

A Rant on Developers

For the last year or two I have spiraled down the beautiful rabbit hole of GNU/Linux and free open-source software. As a gamer I had slim to none issues when it came to gaming on GNU/Linux at first, until I began to play higher-end games such as Apex Legends, and tried to play various Unreal Engine games such as Paladins and Splitgate. This didn't bother me too much; I can just play those games on my PlayStation 4, though, it got me thinking about the logistics of supporting GNU/Linux as a platform.

The three most commonly used game engines and real-time development platforms all support GNU/Linux. I am specifically referring to Unity, Unreal, and Godot, which from my possibly flawed observations are the top three engines, as of right now. All three of these engines run on most GNU/Linux distributions, have the same feature set you would have on Darwin/MacOS or Windows, and are very performant. If I as an independent developer or AAA developer want to create a game that runs on GNU/Linux, I can very easily do so.

I want to preface what I'm about to say with something very important, I'm only sixteen. As a developer who has experience with the three engines I named, I have had absolutely zero issues with building my games for Darwin/MacOS, GNU/Linux, and Windows. Even before I really kept GNU/Linux in mind when developing my games, they built perfectly. Networking worked, and I know Easy Anti-Cheat, the most prolific anti-cheat has native GNU/Linux support.

I don't think most game developers have an excuse not to support GNU/Linux anymore. If their pipeline is sane, it shouldn't make a difference in development time and cost. It isn't even like GNU/Linux isn't a common platform, it is. The Steam Deck is now a thing as well, which should have native builds to get rid of any possible Proton overhead.

If you are a large company working on a game engine, it is insane to me as to why you wouldn't support GNU/Linux. Your rendering engine should at the very least support OpenGL or Vulkan, not just DirectX, as that allows for long-term support for multiple platforms. Once your engine supports OpenGL and/or Vulkan, it should be fairly straight-forward and relatively inexpensive to port over to GNU/Linux.

I'm not speaking out of my ass, either, I have very actively followed low-level development being done towards open-source engines such as Diligent and Wicked. I personally am a contributor to the latter engine, as well. It is baffling to me that independent developers don't support this platform.

Please, correct me if I'm wrong, I'm sure I have a lot to learn still. It just doesn't make sense to me, right now.

Crysis Remastered Benchmark File Error

I have been making a comparison video between Linux and Windows 11 game benchmarks with all the games including a built-in benchmark in all my libraries. I finished Windows benchmarks and now it's Linux's turn. I installed Lutris, Epic Games Launcher and Crysis Remastered. The game runs just fine but both the benchmarkGPU.bat and benchmark.exe files throw an error.

"CrysisRemastered.exe couldn't find in the directory"

I know that the exe is in the directory, otherwise the game wouldn't run. I re-downloaded the game twice but the issue persists.

Is there a way to start the benchmark other than the bat or benchmark.exe files, like from the console inside the game? Or maybe with start parameters, just like how BioShock Infinite's benchmark works?

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Ok, so I've gotten a steam gift card as a present and now I'm trying to buy a game. (I live in Germany by the way). It's asking me for an address, and I use a fake name for my steam account for security reasons. So I'm wondering if I put my fake name into the steam payment section (With my real address), will Steam and the government check my houses records to see if anyone under that name lives here? Maybe I'm paranoid, but it's Germany so you never know.

Proper Screensharing with Sound on Discord now easier than ever

(as long as you use pipewire)

I've already made two posts here prior to the current one describing my endeavor of getting proper screensharing on Discord that isn't mute. What does proper mean in this context you ask? Before starting my research there was only one workaround to getting sound on your screenshare and that involved mixing the desktop audio with your microphone. This has serious drawbacks such as filters being applied to the sound stream like ducking and noise compression and the fact that literally EVERYONE in the call will hear your desktop audio regardless of whether they are watching your stream or not and without the ability of turning it down without tuning your voice down too. So proper means that to the other users in the call your screenshare works as if you were doing it from Windows. The drawbacks to this? You have to use a browser. If you are on Wayland browsers are the only way to screeenshare anyways.

So how do you use this?

Fist of all you will need a Chromium based browser;Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi, Brave, Opera all these work. Firefox doesn't work yet due to a bug that version 101 hopefully fixes.

You will also need an addon, violent monkey (other userscript managers like tampermonkey will also work).

Once you get that shorted out simply go here and click the green Install button to get my script.

The initial setup is done, you don't need to do this again. That part remains the same, what actually becomes easier tho thanks to pipewire is picking the sound of an app. Before you had to do many steps through the pipewire terminal interface each time but now thanks to Noah(Curve) we have a terminal app that does it for you.

Simply download the binary from here, make it executable and run it. One easy way to install it easily through three commands is

wget https://github.com/edisionnano/Screenshare-with-audio-on-Discord-with-Linux/blob/main/virtmic?raw=true
chmod +x virtmic
sudo mv virtmic /usr/bin

Then you can execute it simply by typing virtmic on a terminal and hitting enter. It will ask you for a node name, to learn the node name of the app you are trying to share simple run

pw-cli ls Node|grep node.name 

while the app is running.

Once you do that simply start screensharing either your whole screen or a window and it will have sound.

This post may seem long but basically after you set it up once you only have to do 2 steps:

  1. Run the virtmic app and give it the node name of the app you want to share
  2. Start screensharing

I won't be updating this post if anything new comes up but I will be updating the github repo here:

Headset Suggestions (2022)

Problem that i have: I am using Steelseries Arctis 3 from 2 years but i am quite not happy with sound, it's quite low when connected to back of my motherboard but when connected to front it's louder but still not happy. I am trying to get a great sound experience but don't know what to get either a new headset or Amplifier/DAC and If i get a new headset and the audio remains the same then it's just waste of money cause there are minor problems with my arctis 3 like the cushions come apart and cable is kinda broken but it works, i could order replacements for but it will cost me $41.37 in my country since steelseries does not deliver here.

What I am considering: I am thinking to get Blackshark V2 but i am getting for $142.21 and it's big money for me, if it's gonna sound same as arctis 3 then i will regretting this my whole life, if anyone from here rocks one of these let me know, and are they loud enough that you sometimes need to lower volume cause i am looking for just that. A very loud headset, great audio quality and a nice mic. Few questions about Blackshark V2, Are you able to use the USB thing and does it store settings if you configured it once it windows will it continue to use same settings under linux without software?

Also: Are DAC/Amplifier worth it in linux? if you are getting low audio? or they are troublesome?

Suggestions: Also I could use some suggestions of other Headset that are working great for you people here, with great audio quality and loud while listening to music and while playing games, and mic is quite good as well under $150 or a little extra.

RAZER subreddit would not let low karma people post, so could not get help there.

Thanks, have a nice day.

I've just installed Diablo 2 Resurrected

I've just came here to share my smooth D2R installing experience. Yesterday I've installed Pop OS to try it after struggling with Ubuntu 22.04. I've decided to try to skip all the tutorials online and just install the game using Lutris. I've downloaded it from the store, installed Battle.net (it downloaded some additional stuff automatically), logged in, downloaded D2R and just run the game. It works. It just f*** works. I didn't do any additional action, no searching for the right dependencies, no additional settings. I'm looking forward to play the game to see it it works flawlessly under any circumstances but man - Linux gets better and better. Thanks to all the good open source souls!

Does gaming on Linux really work? A few questions..

Background: We are comfortable on the command line but haven't been around it for a while. About 5 years ago we got rid of our Playstation and bought a powerful laptop then installed LTSC - we've been gaming on it since. Now we've bought a powerful desktop and it's time to decide what we want for the OS!

I asked a few questions on MDL about the new 2021 LTSC and got elitist answers which pissed me off. I'm not a fan of Windows to begin with and are 'natively' Linux users (just haven't been around it for a while). That made me google if Elden Ring worked on Linux. To my surprise, the answer is yes, via Valve / Steam and a compatibility layer to launch an exe.

My goal isn't just to install Steam bought games though.. For instance we own Cyberpunk on GOG where you download, install then launch the game (even offline) without something like Steam or any DRM running.

In the late 90's, Wine didn't work well (no offense), and I don't know what Proton is. I don't want to game out of a virtualbox, nor dual-boot, and we prefer a Linux host - however, my assumption based on out-dated experience is that Windows based games won't work well in Wine. Wine used to be a hassle to get running. Note that I'd be rolling my own desktop on the bare bones Debian install.

- (general) Do modern standalone games work just as well in Linux as they do in Windows now?

- (drivers) We connect to our TV and play in true 4K. Will *nix nVidia drivers support 4096? It used to be that those drivers weren't a priority for any company.

- (emulator) How complicated is the setup for Wine? Keep in mind I wouldn't be installing Wine via Steam, rather a .deb for standalone games, if such a .deb exists?

- (hardware) Will Linux fully support an i7, NVMe and RTX? Will I get the same performance?

- Is there anything I'm missing? For instance, maybe it's not Wine I should be worried about but rather Proton?

- Can anyone recommend a good Debian based guide?

Thanks everyone!

How to apply DXVK Async patch on DXVK Vulkan wrapper?

Trying to get GTA-IV to run properly on Windows 10. I know, this sub is about Linux gaming but it seems to be the most appropriate sub to ask such a question (feel free to nudge me in the right direction, BTW). In any case, I'm currently running the game under Vulkan wrapper (v1.10.1) and while the horrible stutters are dramatically reduced as compared to DX9; they're still present and quite annoying.

Someone suggested to patch the DXVK Async (GitHub) into the Vulkan wrapper to help with shader caching but since I'm not wholly familiar with Linux, I've no idea where to begin!

I also tried YouTube but couldn't find anything.

Can anyone explain the procedure to me... preferably in Windows 'lingo' as I literally never tried Linux in my 30+ years of existence?

How to get VR Games running?

I've converted to Fedora, and most of my games run amazing on it. I've heard it's possible for VR games to run on Linux, but they crash during startup. Haven't really dove into logs yet, but it seems the issue is that either Proton isn't playing nice with them (which I doubt), or they can't communicate with SteamVR. I highly suspect it's the latter, since they fail to open it during startup. I'm using OpenHMD to get my Rift to connect to SteamVR, and the tracking works fine. Any possible ideas on how to fix this?

I really don't want to spread FUD, but I'm a bit concerned that the fact that Canonical is creating a Steam SNAP, means that at some point in the future it will remove the .deb Steam package like it did with Chromium and Firefox. I'll explain why.

I'm sure some of you have heard not long ago that Canonical is creating a Steam SNAP. Currently, Chromium and Firefox are the the only 2 pieces of software in Ubuntu that had their repository .deb package completely replaced by SNAP. If you use Ubuntu, you probably know that almost all of their repo packages (including Steam) are derived mainly from Debian Testing. Chromium and Firefox were probably the only 2 .deb packages that were built by Canonical itself (not derived from Debian), hence the reason they're now SNAP only.

However, I feel like with Steam it's a different story. Remember when before the release of Ubuntu 19.10 Canonical initially wanted to remove ALL i386 libraries, which would've rendered i386 games and the Steam client itself unusable? Valve even said that it will stop supporting Ubuntu officially in that case. Thankfully, because of backlash, Canonical decided to remove most of the i386 packages, but continue shipping only the important ones required to run popular software (pretty much only Steam and Wine). Now, with the existance of Steam SNAP, Canonical will have the excuse to remove the last remaining i386 packages like it initially wanted (Wine is also available as a SNAP afaik). Another reason why I think so is because Canonical didn't explain what exactly is the benefit of Steam SNAP over Steam .deb package. All I heard is something about "improving the experience for gamers" which to me sounds like PR nonsense.

Again, I didn't post this for the sake of spreading FUD. While I despise Canonical as a company, I still love Ubuntu as a distro base and this trend of gradually removing traditional packages in favor of Snaps makes me sad (because like many people I can't stand them for various reasons). Also, it seems like nobody is asking himself the question why is Steam as a SNAP even necessary when the .deb version has worked perfectly in Ubuntu for years?

Btw, if you want to mention Linus breaking his PopOS installation by trying to install Steam, that was entirely System76's fault. They don't use the same Steam package that Ubuntu uses and what happened to Linus is simply because one of the dependencies for their own Steam package was missing in their repos for some reason. As I said, Ubuntu's Steam package has been stellar for years and didn't cause any issues.

Is Proton GE faster than default Proton?

I read in several posts here the differences between both type of Protons. But none of the posts makes the point about performance. Rather, the main difference seems to be about the speed in which bugs are fixed.

Having not compared them myself yet, my target game seems to work fine with both. Might there be a performance difference? Or better performance is not really a benefit of Proton GE?

Moraff's Mahjong in Wine

Hi! I've been trying to get it to work on Wine and it doesn't give me much to work with. I've had to install it from Windows because the installer kept getting me a .net error and it couldn't fetch it from the net either

I tried activating midi support and that doesn't do it either. The error message is rather generic so no hints at all at what it could be

Anyone here had any luck making it run properly?

Elden Ring black screen when focused

The game starts, I get the white screen before the Bandai Namco logo, then it flashes and goes black. If I alt-tab I can see the game but have no control. It accepts inputs on the black screen (I have been able to load my game). I also don't have sound. I've tried changing proton versions and switching between Steam native and runtime. Sometimes the game won't even start at all, I get the EAC popup and then nothing and I have to kill it.

RADV ray tracing problems

I recently treated myself to an RX 6700 XT, and want to experiment with ray tracing. I've learned this much already:

  • On Vulkan, things should generally be alright. On Vkd3d, things are wishy-washy
  • The environment variable RADV_PERFTEST must have rt set
  • For Vkd3d games, at least when using vkd3d-proton, VKD3D_CONFIG must have dxr or dxr11 set (depending on the game)

My system has vulkan-loader and Vulkan-Headers at 1.3.x so there shouldn't be anything held back there. My Mesa packages are all on version 22.0.3, so the latest ray tracing code is included. I have RADV_PERFTEST=rt in my zprofile, so that part is no trouble. I have two ray tracing games: Metro Exodus Enhanced (D3D12 + DXR 1.1) which I launch via Lutris, and DOOM Eternal (Vulkan) which I launch via Steam.

Metro just fails to launch, despite the VKD3D_CONFIG environment variable set to dxr11 in Lutris's settings for that game, saying my "graphics device does not support DXR1.1 or above." The Lutris fork of vkd3d-proton does check this option.

DOOM Eternal launches normally (using GE-Proton7-16) and detects ray tracing capability. When I enable the ray tracing option and apply, my entire system goes down. No, really: outputs go black, USB inputs are ignored (no reisub!), and everything except audio output halts. I have no choice but to reboot.

I'm running out of patience and I just want to try things out already. Any wisdom would be greatly appreciated! I'll return the favor by making a GitHub gist with everything I learn once I get this mess working, so nobody has to put up with this Google-fu again (every search result is from September 2021, istg).

Everhood in Crossover on Mac

So, I've been trying to get Everhood (using the GOG version) to work in Crossover (and also Wineskin, but for now I'm focusing on the Crossover stuff), in a Windows 10 64-bit bottle, and whenever I launch it, it plays the Unity logo animation completely, but then hangs on the empty brown screen after said logo disappears, and stays like that until I force quit it. The same thing happens whether or not I have the "DXVK backend for D3D11" option enabled, and I've gotten one log with the option disabled and one log with the option enabled, which are in this Google Drive folder: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1_lTI6gqVzoQLZVl-EV7mJiQ9fkd1HqAP?usp=sharing

I've already made a post about this but I think that may have been buried or something before I actually got the logs. I'd be very thankful if anyone could offer me any tips, or at least figure out what the issue itself is.

Reducing size of backups (steam, proton, VRChat)


I've read the rules about tech support and I hope it's OK to post this, since it relates to gaming on Linux with Steam.

I tried looking for help on this one, but nothing specific cropped up. There was a lot of false positives related to "how to backup steam on windows".

The thing I'm trying to do is make my backups run faster by excluding unneeded paths. Every time steam does an update it shuffles a lot of files internally (proton). Another culprit is VRChat, which really likes to eat disk space (assets, vulkan shaders).

Excluding the whole steam folder from backups is a no-go AFAIK since not all games support cloud saves and I'd rather not loose save data in case of a crash.

Which sub-directories do you recommend as safe to exclude? Is there a rule of thumb here?

I already excluded the shader cache from being added to backups: ~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/shadercache

I also have a bunch of Proton instances. Is it safe to exclude Proton* ? I'm asking since there are docs folders which perhaps may be used for game saves: ~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/common/Proton 5.13/dist/share/default_pfx/drive_c/users/Public/Documents/

This discussion tells more about saves: https://steamcommunity.com/app/221410/discussions/8/1741094390480128995/

Hence why I'm not touching compatdata, because apparently some games may still setup shop there.

What do you suggest?

Thanks in advance, td

Is Linux suitable for a gaming pc?

Hello, people of this awesome sub!

I'm planning on building myself a PC. My objective is to flawlessly run all the games I already love and to be able to actually find new interesting games without fearing for my computer's ability to run them. Now on Linux, sure, you can run most things nearly flawlessly with platforms like Wine, Proton and Lutris, but there are still some issues, such as problems with GTA V and the lack of ability to play sourcemods.

So, since you guys have more experience than I at running newer games on Linux, I ask the question: is it worth it to use Linux on a gaming PC or should I purchase a Windows license?

Thanks in advance.

Is anything other than Steam actually worth it?

I've just had a very frustrating time with Lutris.

About 6 months back, I managed to get red dead redemption II (rdr2) working with Lutris - I'd purchased it via Rockstar, way back - special offer.

I was using Pop!_OS 21.04 - it took me about 2 days on and off, to actually get it working - but once I did, it ran *perfectly*, which is no small feat, given the volume of issues I've seen.

Last week, I decided to upgrade to Pop!_OS 22.04 - and it screwed my rdr2 install.

No launch. Game won't start.

I've spent another day, more or less, trying to figure it out, but I'm no closer.

It could be:

  • A gnome zenity update
  • A wine update
  • Something in Pop!_OS update?
  • The weather

So, I tried Linux Mint, no luck.

Went back to Pop!_OS 21.04, no luck.

My point is, there's just so many variables of what can go wrong, without a company behind the effort.

Community software is _awesome_ and Lutris is _awsome_ - but it just cannot compete with the likes of Valve - the reason being obvious - Steam Deck.

Sure, Rockstar games are notoriously fickle on Linux - but Valve have managed it.

I've still got my windows partition on my Linux gaming rig - haven't booted it for a year now ... but hell, to me, it seems the only real winner for Linux gaming is Steam - and let's face it, is is Valve who have pushed Linux gaming forward to where it is now...

So, yeah, I'm talking here about relatively recent games and totally about game companies such as Rockstar.

I've had no problems with GoG games - but I don't have many of those, Steam just ... well, it rules my PC gaming, because ... well, I've used it since 2004 and have a lot of games and because ... it's the best there is.

Encoders not on par

My Samsung Note 10+ has 60 fps HEVC hardware encoder and it works great. I can see the image on screen and it gets compressed. 4k 60 fps. Works great! Also has 264. Now I remember these things use to work on Linux dating back to when I had and Hp z620 and rtx 2080. Now I have a 5950x and 3090. libx265 doesn't evan open.

The h.264 CPU encoder is not on par and gltches through out. Which is wrong. I can compress this stuff via HEVC on the GPU. Works great to turn 100Gb file into 4Gb, but as far a streaming and recording live War Thunder Vulkan game play at 2160 p is no go. I can do it, but drastically have to cut quality. Will we ever get a good HEVC hardware encoder that works? That I can use for live play. Why doesn't the h.264 work? THese are questions I ask myself when a cell phone from 2018 can do all these things.

I mainly use Fedora and Clear Linux and proprietary Nvidia drivers in X11.

It's a nice motherboard too. PCI4. I know it is no HP z620, but you get twice the PCI bandwidth!

Haven't been able to get libx265 to work at all.

Note 10+ Samsung 7nm node circa 2018 6.7 billion transistors

3090 Samsung 8nm circa 2020/1 28.3 billion transistors

5950x TSMC 7nm circa 2020/1 19.2 billion transistors

Right now H264 is in the lead. I can get a quality stream, but it glitches a lot. And still isn't right

NV GPU encoders I have to drastically cut quality. The HEVC here is usefull for compressing massive H264 files where it doesn't record in real time

THe software is all kind of behind. libx264 is slightly worse than h264

lib x265 doesn't work

HEVC NVENC is capped around 30 fps 4k. Not the smoothest.

NV H.264 ... You can get a quality stream out of it at 2160p. There are bandwidth limits...

lib x264 is similiar to h.264 (of course)

asv1 asv2, are only good for about 20 fps. Somewhat interesting encoders here.

Dose the CPU have HEVC?

My cell phone can record War THunder at 4k 60 fps via camera and looks great! About 1 GB per minute. Really sharp.


This is embarressing. Android is better than Linux. Should I be Emailing Nvidia here?

Anyone play Grim Dawn with wine? GOG version hangs at black screen for me, but I can hear the menu music

How to completely isolate home directory from wine programs

I have removed access to "z:" drive from wineconfig but windows programs can still access my home directory through "/" point where are folders like bin,boot,etc.. including "home" folder inside which is my home directory and all files inside it are reachable . I tested it through a windows program called explorer++ .

So is there any way to isolate my home directory completely from wine programs ?

I am using wine through lutris , so if there is any lutris specific solution to this , that could work too .

I get it that it's the new hotness, and X is old and busted and filled with cruft, but all I ever see is the trouble people run into with it. X works fine for me so... Other than wanting to try out something new, is there any real practical advantage to it at this point?

How do I mount a network drive in a windows-like way so windows applications don't get confused?

I am beginning my forays into Linux and Wine and I'm already a wee bit confused. I have managed to get a few applications installed, but they can't seem to figure out the file system.

I have a program that manages files, but when I try to show it the network drive it doesn't actually do anything. Im assuming its because it's expecting \ instead of / and other small differences in the layout. Is there a way I can mount the network drive as a 'windows' drive?

A strange place I've used proton

Hey everyone, so I wanted a place to talk about this because I really didn't expect to be doing this. I just got loop hero and I was having hard time getting it to work. Started in a terminal expecting a huge output dump that I'd have to analyze to figure out what was wrong, but it seems it wasn't starting because of one error:

./Loop_Hero: error while loading shared libraries: libldap_r-2.4.so.2

Turns out the developers didn't consider that people update their systems, and were requiring an outdated version of a library that installed on my system, but that they never bothered to bundle with their game.

I thought about it for a bit, maybe downloading a version of the outdated library, and sticking it in the game's directory that it LD_PRELOAD's. Then it hit me, I really don't care enough to do any of that so I'll just run it in proton! and it worked!

I'm just glad that even if we have to deal with developer issues like this we can always rely on proton to help out a bit. It's a bit silly, but I thought I'd share because I never would have thought I'd be using proton in such a situation.

Elden Ring Increase likelyhod of successful launch

I'm Running Linux Mint and I've had issues for a while where Elden Ring doesn't like to launch, black screen and have to close and reopen a few times. However I've found a way that makes it launch successfully almost every time.

Open System monitor, scroll to the bottom of the "e" alphabetic processes, then launch Elden Ring. When the easy anti-cheat window pops up it spawns a process called "explorer.exe". You have to right click that process, and change priority to very low as fast as you can, before the Elden Ring process spawns. Once you get the white screen you can change the priority back to normal.

Hope this helps someone out there, it's purely andecdotal but seems to help avoid the race condition from occuring.

Steam proton help ?

Hey guys, I am a total noob on linux. I have downloaded steam and noticed that my favorite game (boi) is only native up to rebirth but, with proton it is possible to play repentance. However when I turn on proton on the game properties it still only shows up to rebirth, what am I doing wrong ?

Proton not running games. redhat 8

Hi. I followed this tutorial here,


I got steam running and all my games install but when I go to run one, the green icon says running.. then goes back to "PLAY" I have confirmed I installed the nvidia driver from the website without a problem and I installed the 32 bit libraries as well. I am trying to get proton to log but even putting the command (PROTON_LOG=1 %command%) in steam game option the log is never created in game directory or home dir. ( I can't find it I am new to redhat but not linux and new to snapd. Anyway please let me know how I can get proton to log, and help me find it? or give some other options thanks! I should also mention after baldurs gate 3 for example failed, I noticed steam downloaded something so i ran it again and waited for it to process vulkan shaders which finished, but games still do not play.

#EDIT If I rrun steam from command line and run among us I get this with the rest omitted as I found it unimportant. bwrap: Failed to make / slave: Operation not permitted

[HOWTO] Troubleshoot pipewire crackling / pop / popping , mod.rt: could not set nice-level to -11: Permission denied

This happened to me updating from Kubuntu 22.04 beta -> stable, with me having accidentally set pipewire-media-session instead of wireplumber (side note: which also required to: sudo rm /etc/systemd/user/pipewire-session-manager.service and then sudo apt reinstall wireplumber)

Anyway, to fix this, sudo sensible-editor /etc/security/limits.conf

And add the line, to the END of the file:

@audio   -  nice     -20

Save the file, and then REBOOT. Yes, you must reboot -- AFAIK there is no way to apply these changes without reboot. Your audio crackling / popping / spitting / scratch / record distortion / issues should be fixed. linux audio crackling popping sound popping loose jack ubuntu popping ubuntu crackling (Hopefully I hit all the keywords for the web searchers out there. There was no docs on how to fix this, so I'm creating that :) )

Unable to install epic games + gta 5 with lutris

Hi all

I'm trying to install and play gta 5 with lutris

I went through the whole adding epic games as a runner and connecting it thing.

To actually install GTA 5 Lutris first installs epic games launcher and you're supposed to install gta 5 from epic games launcher. I say this because I've got this working in a previous linux install just like this.

However, this time when I try to go through the process of installing epic games launcher, it just keeps me at this infinite "installing epic games store- installing data" window. Its been hours but its still installing epic games. I've retried this process several times now.

Does anyone know whats going on here?

Have a new gpu and have a few questions on GPU driver compatibility and any actions I need to take before or after I switch to the new GPU.

As the title says.

I'm new to Linux and before on Windows, I had a pretty clear way to uninstall graphics drivers and install one that matched my GPU but on Linux, googling has been a bit...difficult. Nothing that makes it clear what actions I should take for a smooth transition.

I'm on AMD going to a new AMD GPU so it's not as if I'm switching vendors. But I'm just making sure.

Is there software for emulating controller with keyboard? Mostly interested because of the Steam Remote.

Thinking about playing some co-op games with friends. Sadly, I don't own a controller, so I thought can I remap controller's buttons to my keyboard?

Tried to search, but all I found is general keyboard remappes (keyboard to keyboard).

If it matters I use Fedora 36, GNOME on x11, supposed game is Enter The Gungeon (but not only).

Or are there any other ways of playing LAN coop games on two keyboards, maybe using other technology rather than Steam Remote?

Is anyone else having problems with Civilization 6?

It ran great on my system until a few months ago. Now it doesn't matter which version of Proton I'm using.

I don't have a problem getting past the launcher but it usually crashes while either loading the game or a few turns into the game. I know my system isn't the best for it but it ran with zero issues under Windows.

I don't see any posts about it so I'm assuming this is just an issue with my machine. However I'm open to suggestions as it is one of my favorite games.

For reference I'm running a laptop with a 4500u and 16 gigs of 3200 ram.

Red Dead Redemption 2 won't start up after pressing PLAY

I tried to change the proton, to change the wine version, to change the launcher version. I'm using the Rockstar Launcher, Lutris with ProtonGE as runner. The Launcher starts, but when I'm pressing PLAY button, it just stucks on Loading and after a couple of minutes it shows EXIT GAME, without anything popping up. As far as I've seen, on 'htop' window, the process is running and it's using a lot of my PC's memory. But, again, nothing is opening.

I'm on Arch Linux, ZEN.

[RPCS3] Tried most ways to play MGS4, need some help

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to play MGS4 on rpcs3 for a while now. Actually I've tried:

  • Cipherxof's custom build, which I've compiled on the patch-1 branch, mgs4-new and mgs4 don't compile either because of a unsigned/signed comparison on templated stuff or undefined Vulkan symbols.
  • According to the rpcs3 wiki, I've also tried latest Illusion's custom build binary from their mgs4-new branch.
  • I used to try official 0.20 appimage a couple months back and lately tried latest 0.22 appimage.

I get various performance but overall it's either good or decent, alas I get crashes all the time and can't get past the first maps of the game, always randomly at different places.
I couldn't identify a single cause for the crashes, just access violation because of unmapped memory.
It seemed to be more stable on latest official build but it's not significant.

So I definitely tried the canary patches ("cellSpurs urgent commands hack") respectively for the 4.88 firmware that I just updated as well. It helped a lot but unfortunately that's not enough.
Ended up trying every single options in the CPU/GPU settings, my investigations only made it worse in terms of performance.
So I kept the configuration alike:


  • PPU Decoder: Recompiler (LLVM)
  • SPU Decoder: Recompiler (LLVM)
  • XFloat Accuracy: Relaxed XFloat
  • Additional Settings: [x] Enable SPU loop detection
  • Additional Settings: [ ] Full Width AVC-512 (ofc UNSUPPORTED on AMD cpu)
  • TSX Instructions: UNSUPPORTED
  • SPU Block Size: Safe
  • Preferred SPU Threads: Auto (might tweak that in case crashes are caused by race conditions)
  • Thread Scheduler: Operating System


  • Renderer: Vulkan
  • Framelimit: 60
  • Anti-Aliasing: Auto
  • ZCULL Acuracy: Relaxed
  • Resolution Scale: 150%
  • Shader Mode: Async (multi threaded)
  • [x] Write Color Buffers
  • [x] Multithreaded RSX

Unmentioned options were left to their respective default.
If anyone managed to play without too many crashes, I'd gladly welcome any advice, I'm fine with the occasional crash or visual glitches here and there, I just ca not get past the first maps atm.

For reference here's my spec which likely isn't the problem:

  • Ryzen 5800X
  • RX 6800XT (Radv driver from mesa 21.3.8)
  • 32Go DDR4
  • 5.17.1-3-MANJARO (DE is KDE Plasma still on x11)

Thanks in advance for the feedback!

Why haven't I asked on /r/rpcs3 ? Because I'm pretty sure I would have got trash for using linux, besides no harm intended but people are usually slightly tech savvier around here and more likely to answer linux specific issues, it seems people on windows aren't struggling as much as I did when looking either at reddit or at the amazing Digital Foundry video on that very topic.

Also, to anyone feeling like lecturing me about emulation, I do own the game but my ex kept the PS3, fml.

I recently tried to play Alan Wake on Heroic Launcher, It launches for a second in black screen and crashes immediately. Same thing happens in lutris. Then I just moved on after trying different wine or proton versions and started playing Amnesia Rebirth. It worked by default. And finally after finishing it, I tried to launch AC Syndicate and this does not even shows a black screen. While I am able to play Rocket League by default. Anyone facing similar issue? If so, did you solved it?

Also I am able to play Cyberpunk 2077(GOG) from Heroic Games Launcher.

Protontricks Steam library warning

I keep getting these messages in the terminal whenever I run protontricks (with or without GUI): protontricks (WARNING): Steam library folder /run/media/$USER/Linux Storage/Steam Library not found. Protontricks might not have access to the directory (and for a few more directories). Those directories no longer exist (in this case, I renamed my mount point to just "LinuxStorage" instead of "Linux Storage"). I removed all of them from Steam a long time ago. Protontricks shouldn't care about them at all.

I'm really only asking this because the OCD part of me wants to rid of any (even inconsequential) errors/warnings: how would one tell protontricks to stop checking Steam libraries that Steam doesn't even use anymore? Thanks :)

How to configure a Gamepad in Ubuntu 22, like we used to do in windows by x360ce.

I have a Quantum QHM7468 USB Gamepad. Which I want to configure, it's completely uncalibrated and doesn't show Right Stick's left and right direction movement.I tried using the same Gamepad on Windows using x360ce, where it works fine. Any alternatives or somethings else? I only play Steam games with it...Thanks.

Update: I tried jstest-gtk, but it doesn't seems to detect either :(

I need some help with witcher 3 goty

I read good reviews about running witcher 3 on linux and some stated that runs even better than on windows. Sadly I have unplayable fps. On Windows works great, but on my Endeavour OS doesn't. I have AMD RTX 480 (4gb) gpu and ryzen 5600x cpu with 32gb of ram.

I run it through steam proton and I tried all versions without any improvements.

Any idea how to make it work?

when running a game using lutris wine on gnome wayland (42.1), if i switch away from the game (using trackpad gestures, using the super key doesn't seem to have the same issue) and try to switch back, the game crashes with an error:

Werid lag/tearing in new EA Games with high graphics details


is it only me or did you notice too that new EA games like Dragon Age Inquisition, Mass Effect Andromeda or Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order have this weird fps issue. I can be running the game at 100+ frames and the game still appears laggy on high graphics settings. Only when I switch details to Low then it runs smoothly.

Does anyone have at least an explanation if not a fix? I would guess that it is related to the game engine.

My specs:
- AMD cpu and gpu
- Fedora
- GE Proton

Thank you for your answers

Heroes of the Storm crashes (Ubuntu/Wine)


I am trying to get Heroes of the Storm to work on Ubuntu ; I use wine. In fact there is absolutely no problem it works fine - except for one thing : sometimes, relatively randomly (or so it seems), the game crashes : its freezes, apart from the mouse that I can still move, and then some time after I get a "Fatal Error" message and the game close ; then I have to relaunch the game, until it crashes again (5, 10, 15, 20, 30 mn after ?).

If someone has an idea, had this problem and solved it, I'd be happy to hear it.

Game not booting off of Steam Proton

The Issue: There is not a single game that will boot from steam (on OpenSUSE). There are no errors that I can see. I have tried Proton Experimental and 7.0. I have tried games with multiple ratings from Platinum to Silver (Rivals of Aether, Shogun, etc.).

Remediation Attempts: I heard that you need an EXT4 format for the game to launch, so I partitioned my main drive to have an EXT4 partition. I then installed the games and proton onto it (keep in mind that Steam is still on the original partition). This did nothing.

Should I install Steam onto the EXT4 partition as well, or should this not make a difference? I have been installing it through the preset application store and there was no option to select a partition, so I would most likely have to use YasT or something and install it from a file online.

Games running but not opening?

So, Im a Mac player, and I wanted to play spore, a great game but only exclusive to windows, so I set up play on Mac, before I buy the game, I used it to run games from steam, got the black screens, fixed it with a YouTube tutorial, but the games only get to running and stop after some time, never opening, any clue how to fix?

Can't get Crusader Kings 2 to work.

I've tried for a while to get CK2 to run on my PC, but it won't, and I'd like some input.

My PC is running Lubuntu, updated to 21.04. The hardware is fine, since this PC has run CK2 before on Windows, before I installed Lubuntu.

Every single time I try to get it to run, CK2 crashes when it begins trying to create/load textures or while trying to load graphics. I've tried validating the files, completely uninstalling and reinstalling CK2 (including deleting the CK2 file in the paradox interactive folder), and I've tried some other fixes, such as the "fullScreen=no" and "borderless=yes" fix, and the "override_resolution_safety=yes" fix. I've even tried running it vanilla, with no mods or DLC, but it doesn't work.

Nothing so far has worked, and I'm starting to get concerned that it won't work, which would be quite upsetting, since I'd like to play some CK2 right now.

If anyone can give me some advice how to get this to run, that'd be greatly appreciated.

Reverse Search ProtonDB?

Hi all,

I'm running a 6-year-old business laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad T450S), and I'm curious what games in my Steam library would be compatible with it. I've uploaded my specs to ProtonDB, and I was looking to find a way to search for which games would run with my specs (versus picking random games and hoping for the best).

I'm not really a hardware person at all. How bad are my specs?

OS: Fedora release 35 (Thirty Five) 
KERNEL: 5.14.16-301.fc35.x86\_64 
CPU: Intel Core i7-5600U @ 2.60GHz 
GPU: Intel Mesa Intel HD 5500 (BDW GT2) 
GPU DRIVER: 4.6 Mesa 21.2.5 
RAM: 12 GB

Is there a way to reverse search ProtonDB like this, or are there any other sites that might serve my purpose? I was hoping to find users with similar hardware and stalk the games they've rated.

Unable to get Flashpoint to work

Complete Linux noob here

Tried to install flashpoint natively by literally copying commands from this website:


And after copying+pasting every command, the terminal shows that there is no ./flashpoint directory after doing everything under 'Installation'. I think that the problem is from the cat << EOF > flashpoint, because I get > at the beginning of every line and I can't exit out of it because I don't have a single idea of what is happening. So I delete everything, delete winetricks, create a new wine prefix, and download the Exe version from the official Flashpoint website:


Got the infinity version, pasted it into my wine drive_c, opened it in Winetricks, and for some reason, when I click the Flashpoint 10.1 Infinity.exe file, it extracts itself through 7zip (??), but still, I open the flashpoint infinity folder after installing, I double click Flashpoint.exe and it opens and just black screens. I don't get what I did wrong at any point with the first method, given that I tried copy-pasting every command 1 by 1 and there is a folder missing for some reason, the Winetricks thing I completely improvised on my own, but I don't get how to run an exe installation in it, given that it opens in 7z and extracts itself for some reason.

The wine version is wine-5.0.3, the winetricks version, Flashpoint version is 10.1, I'm using MX Linux as my OS

I just wanted to play a flash game and I wasted an hour and a half on nothing...

Does Fedora's RPM version of steam install games in the same location as flathub?

Hey folks,

I just installed steam on my F35 machine and by accident installed the flathub version first along with two games. I then uninstalled steam (without uninstalling the games) and reinstalled the RPM version. Now, did the games get uninstalled with it, because they were no longer installed on the rpm version, or are they taking up some of my disk space now, and if so where can I find them at?
Thanks in advance and I hope this doesn't count as a "tech help thread" :)

A Game Developer Sheds Light on Linux Versus Windows Sales
URL: https://linuxgamingcentral.com/posts/linux-dev-sheds-light-on-sales/
05/06/2022 17:55:00 CEST

I ported our game to Linux, here's how much we sold!

Back in November last year I made a post about porting our game Rob Riches to linux. Now that it's nearing half a year I wanted to make a follow-up post on how it went, since I think sharing information is important, and it lets other developers make more informed decisions in the future.

To begin with I'll go over our wishlist and sales stats. We had a total of 2248 wishlists and 266 units sold, whichof 96 wishlists and 27 sales were on Linux. The wishlist conversion rate was 6.1%, but steam offered no stats on how many were linux specific. The full stats are:

Platform Wishlists Sales Gross USD Returns
Unspecified platform 1164
Windows 988 237 1198.1144 9
Mac 0 2 11.89 0
Linux 96 27 158.1272 0

Keep in mind the numbers aren't accurate (we don't have mac support for example, so I'm not sure what made steam count some sales as for mac for example), but I don't know how accurate they are. The steam hardware survey only had 16 answers in April (one of which was linux), so we don't have any information from that either.

The initial look of 11.6% of the sales being on linux definitely makes the effort seem worthwile, especially if it scales with bigger numbers. None of the returns were on linux, which means there's unlikely to be any big linux specific bugs that made people return the game without notifying us, which is great. Sales/Wishlists is 5% higher for linux, but the numbers aren't large enough to draw any conclusions.

Next I'd like to share what it was like to develop for linux. As mentioned in the original post, making the linux build itself worked out of the box with Unity. There's a tiny bit of work to test on linux since I primarily use Windows (with dualboot linux), but other than that it's been fine.

There's been 1 linux specific bug where Unity InputSystem failed to detect the correct keyboard layout for a user on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. This was only when retrieving the key to display, and didn't affect how the game was played. I was going to write an issue, but never got around to installing Ubuntu (I run manjaro) and making a repro. Interestingly the user didn't have the issue when using Proton with the game.

There was also an issue where I accidentally uploaded the windows build to the linux depot, and one where I uploaded the "DONOTUPLOAD" folder that's generated for linux. Since none of these are "linux" issues, but rather "ITR" issues, I don't think it's fair to count them here.

For future games it might make sense to explain how to have steam use Proton, so users have know they have that option if they're experiencing issues with the native build. It'd be nice to know a bit more on what linux users prefer, given that Rob Riches runs well both natively and with Proton.

As a final note, I'm positively surprised how painfree linux with unity has become. I'll definetely argue for supporting linux in the 3D platformer we recently started working on. It'll be interesting to see how unity handles building burst compile and compute shaders on linux, but it's listed as supported so hopefully there will be no issues there .

I've also been trying to push for more accessibility lately, and with that comes more control over graphics and such, which should help if somebody is experiencing issues with some features. Unfortunately not all accessibility features are available on linux, for example the screen-reader support plugin.

I'll be trying to read the replies and answer any questions you may have, and if you want to check out the game, it's available on steam here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1655670/Rob_Riches/

P.S.A Stop telling people to avoid single wine prefixes

Can we just get some confirmation that a single wine prefix is nowhere near as bad as people collectively make it out to be?

I almost never see users admit to doing this and it is very common to see people say things like

"You shouldn't use a single wine prefix because if you install a dependency for one game it can break another"

I have been gaming on linux for over 2 years now, I run lots of various games and applications, mostly using the standard wine shipped with my distro, or GE-Wine. All on the same prefix, it contains the latest vc runtime and .NET installed via winetricks. I believe I also have all the dxd dll's and the d3dcompiler dll installed.

That being said, I honestly can't remember, as I haven't had to look at this in years.

I have never had a single problem related to a game not running due to "having a single wine prefix".

So why do people continue to spew this nonsense that you must have 2+ GB wasted for every single game, and "if you dont like it, use BTRFS" which is itself a colossal undertaking. No one ever suggests to just use a single prefix?

If you are worried about it being broken when you change it... just back it up...?

Is there any reason why there is this black stutter in Lutris while recording in OBS?

The stutter doesn't affect the gameplay, but output of OBS is stuttering. This doesn't happen when using pure WINE only.

Maybe some will ask, why not just use pure WINE? Well based from my observation Lutris consume less CPU.

Increase performance while OBS streaming/recording on laptops

I game on a laptop using Intel+Nvidia (Nvidia Optimus). When I record or stream a game using OBS, I have a severe performance loss despite my CPU and GPU not being utilized to high values. Is there anything that can be done here to have better performance in-game? This only happens on OBS, as recording with other software or streaming on Discord have barely no impact on performance.
OBS settings are set to have better performance, with even SD recording and 24 fps. It actually makes no performance difference recording at full quality or severely compressed.

Which DE to use on a Ryzen + RTX 3060 laptop?

So I got myself an Asus TUF A17 laptop, model FA707RM-HX015, with Ryzen 7 6800H and RTX 3060, yay!
And, naturally, I am preparing to nuke Windows 10 from the orbit and install Linux (glorious Arch, but that is beside the point).

My question is this - would KDE Plasma be a good DE for gaming at this point? Should I strive for Wayland?

Steam vs GOG

I'm going to buy games to play. I am wondering if people use GOG on Linux. They are attractive because they don't have DRM. However, they do not have proton like Steam.

Do you buy from GOG, Steam, or both?

The main game I want to buy has no official support for Linux.

Mk so Im running a paper server with 4gb of ram on aws.

Im looking at how we can run the script in a loop and also set it as a server.

The server root is the starting point of the server not root just like the usr for ec2

I have a paper exception for forge.

Dpaper blah bah before-jar But forge based clients cannot join even though ports are good

My current start.sh is basic. I dont get linux bash and would appreciate it if someone could help me make a script that loops and provide instructions for how to set it as a process that arent too dense.

Anyone else's Xbox S|X gamepads get fucked by a recent update?

5.17.5-arch1-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT

I'm trying to figure out what fucked up my wired S|X setup. I have tried both xpad and xpadneo, I updated maybe 5 days ago. On startup things seem fine, jstest-gtk detects pad and seems to function fine, but then I open a game that worked previously (SRB2Kart) and the D-pad no longer works for menu navigation; the game seems to be detecting the pad as buttons instead of POV hat. I then close the game and go back to jstest-gtk, hit properties to look at the inputs and then the whole thing crashes with

** (jstest-gtk:5362): ERROR **: 15:24:55.316:
unhandled exception (type std::exception) in signal handler:
what: /dev/input/js0: No such file or directory

Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

Upon reopening jstest-gtk the gamepad is gone and then I have to unplug and re-plug the controller to see it again.

Amnesia Rebirth on Epic store

TL;DR: Amnesia Rebirth got updated on Epic store, so the Linux native binaries are now fixed there.

recently there was a post stating that the Epic store version of the game included Linux binaries even tho the Epic store itself doesn't support Linux (and doesn't ship Linux binaries even for Linux native games).

I tried it and confirmed that with the Epic store distribution of the game, there are Linux binaries packed. Unfortunately, after trying to launch (you have to add executable permission flag to the binary first) the game would crash at the end of loading. This was due to Linux executable not updated in last patch.

I have contacted the Frictional Games and to my surprise they were very helpful and updated the Epic store version of the game, so it would include updated Linux binaries. So the game now works correctly and contains Linux native binaries, even on the Epic store. If you tried the game before without luck, you can now try again, since it should be working now.

Also, big thanks to frictional games for being so Linux friendly.

Cannot use Nvidia GPU for gaming while DXVK is enabled in Lutris

Nostalgia hit me and I started playing NFS MW (2005) and NFS Carbon on my Laptop.

I can start and play NFS MW (2005) with the Vulkan ICD Loader set to "Nvidia proprietary". When I try to play NFS Carbon a black window opens and closes immediately. In the the output of "nvidia-smi" the game executable NFSC.exe is listed for the time the black window is open. So it seems that wine wants to use the Nvidia GPU.

I can play NFS Carbon if i disable DXVK but I have then some graphical errors. I can play Carbon when I set the Vulkan ICD Loader to Inel but the performance is way worse.

I installed all needed drivers according to this document:

I started lutris through the terminal to get some more information but I am lost and I don't know where and how I can search for more debug information. I don't see any errors in the terminal output.

Problem with Steam on wine.

So I am trying to run windows steam through my 10.15.4 Catalina mac, and while I get it working on both PlayOnMac and Porting Kit, whenever I try to start a game (specifically Sonic CD), the screen flashes for a second, then nothing happens, and everything runs like I never did anything. Can someone help me out with this?

Mouse Profiles on Linux (Razer)

About 2 days ago, i went again on Linux (this time on Fedora), and one thing that always bothered me on Linux, was the fact that i dont seem to find a way to create a 2 profile of binds for my mouse (Razer Deathadder Essential) on Windows, i would just go to Razer Synapse, and assign a bind to a thing razer has called Razer Hypershift, which basically means, when i have that key pressed, the mouse is using another set of buttons (this only works with the program opened tho), and with this i can assign to the 2nd mouse buttons, special stuff, like macros, or something like that... But i still wasn't able to do so, i tried with a lot of things like

Piper, openRazer and some GUI, autokey, other macro programs, i even tried doing in on Python with pyautogui or pynput libraries, but couldn't do something stable...

Does anyone ever tried doing something similar? Does anyone know how can i achieve this?

Thks in advance

I thought I read somewhere at some point that they fixed this, but I guess not. Or is it fixed in the latest beta?

Atleast if it hasn't been fixed, they should do something about it.

New World launches, but cannot connect due to EAC being unable to load

Title. System:

Ubuntu 22.04 (Cinnamon Desktop)

Ryzen 5 5600X / RTX 3060 Ti (NVIDIA 510 driver) / 32GB RAM

Steam Proton, compatibility layer GE-Proton7-16

Launch parameters for New World: bash -c 'exec "${@/NewWorldLauncher.exe/bin64\/NewWorld.exe}"' -- gamemoderun MANGOHUD=1 %command%

I can launch New World and get into the character select screen (I have been playing the game for some time), but when I hit Play, the game says that the EasyAntiCheat library failed to load and disconnects me.

Game starts with standard wine but neither with lutris nor bottles


so i downloaded Jump Force. Not from Steam...but for testing purposes if you know what i mean (and i mean it literally like that, if i like it, i'll buy it)

Now i run into the issue, that i cannot start the game with Lutris or Bottles, regardless of what wine version i chose.

But when i start it simply via wine itself (wine-7.5) it works perfectly fine.

What happens? When i start the game via wine the easy anti cheat window pops up for a fraction of a second, closes, and the game starts.

When i open the game via Bottles / Lutris, the eac window properly opens and tells me that i haven't done my windows updates (lmao) and then tells me i cannot start the game without proper eac (even though online mode is officially gone lol)

Can someone help to replicate the exact parameters that my wine uses so i can start the game like that on bottles / lutris?

State of VR on Linux

Does anyone know the state of VR video and games on the latest proton or native?

You can find some people discussing having issues from years ago, and some others saying they got stuff running at low fps in 2020 or so. I'm having trouble finding any reports with the latest and greatest.

I want to get into vr but am going to hold off until I know I'll be able to do most things on Linux. I use Ubuntu for now.

Counter-Strike Global Offensive stretched strangely


I've got a little problem when trying to play Counter Strike Global Offensive.
I'm used to play on 1280x960 but the game is unplayable.

My NVIDIA driver is: 510 with Wayland on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.
Monitor resolution: 2560x1440

Any ideas why is it like that?

One thing that ruins gaming on linux for me...

I have been gaming on linux on and of for 3 years. I have Logitech G600 mouse and it never felt right, any one have any suggestions on how to fix that?

What I use is Piper for extra buttons, and Mouse feels supper floaty in games almost like a input lag. I have tried mouse acceleration on and off but that does feel right either. Mouse feels good in the actual desktop environment, it's just the gaming issues.

Currently on Fedora 36

Is anyone here gaming on void?

So I have void set up on my laptop and absolutely love it, so much so I've moved away from my arch install. I dont do any gaming on it though, aside from some gzdoom. I just ordered some parts to build a dedicated gaming pc.

I have ran pop os in the past for a gaming pc and it was ok. I was looking at maybe trying out Garuda gaming edition but I really love my void setup.

I am wondering how viable is it for gaming and if youre running it for gaming what steps did you have to do to get it up and running from a base install.

I mainly use steam, lutris and retroarch, and have been messing around with heroic.

My setup once it gets here will be:

Rx 6700xt oc Ryzen 5600x 16gb ddr4 Asus tuf b550m

I look forward to reading your thoughts and personal experiences.

Recommended Dependencies? (Windows DLL or Component)

Is there a list of recommended dependencies to install after installing wine?

I mean DirectX is used by games, but there are loads of versions under winetricks.

Is it a good idea to install d3dx9, or should I install d3dx9_43? Or should I install all the d3dx9 packages?

If I don't know what dependencies a app or game might need, is there a place to go look it up?

Game clipping software?

Hello, im looking for something that could save the last 30 seconds of the screen (i.e. game) at the press of a keyboard shortcut, kinda like windows game bar does or nvidia shadowplay. Im not looking for something that simply records the screen the moment i tell it to but something that is able to capture what has already happened (so a buffer).

Is there anything like this on linux?

I have only been able to find one person with a similar (but still slightly different problem): link

I also tried various compatibility modes and virtual desktop, as someone suggested, but again no success. Can someone help?

I'm new to redit and Linux. Have a question.donno should post it here or what. So tell me if I'm wrong. I use pop os for now and steam for my games. In some distro like modicia os after install steam and run a game like snake pass ,it download some dependencies like vcruntime and other stuff and then game runs , but in pop os or other distros same game doesn't download anything and moments after hitting play it says running and then back to green play button without running. So what should I do. Appreciate for help.

Dota 2 hard freeze while playing

Dota2 freezes while playing. It happens at least one or two times in one match. I'm using with vulkan.

  • gpu - gtx 1050 ti
  • cpu - i7 9th gen
  • driver version - 510.60.02
  • ram - 16gb
  • os - ubuntu 22.04 64 bit

When it happens, I have to reboot my laptop or kill dota2 from system monitor. But I can call terminal, and when I type sudo dmesg,it shows

[12438.172077] NVRM: GPU at PCI:0000:01:00: GPU-2afb6b5c-428b-b992-f923-dde2ad96590e

I'm proud of this community and its willingness to help new users

I think it's amazing that people take their time to carefully answer new users' questions even though they often have been asked a million times before. Stuff like that matters a lot for people who are fresh off the boat. Even if replies to the same post often seems repetitive at times, it still reinforces the user's belief in which way to choose for their particular situation and go where the crowd/help is.

To many more, cheers!

G29 on Steam Proton (F1 2021)

Hello, I recently bought a Logitech G29. And wanting at all costs to avoid installing a WIndows partition to play. I wanted to give it a try on my Linux Mint.

So I launched my game (F1 2021), the steering wheel is recognized as G29 in the game and works without problems. But not in the Steam controller settings. Annoying to set it up suddenly.

So I installed the Berarma driver "new-lg4ff" and "Oversteer". It's great, the steering wheel is recognized directly and I can configure it this way.

However, my steering wheel is no longer recognized in F1 2021 (nor in Steam).

Is it necessary to configure an input device so that it is recognized? If anyone has already solved this kind of problem, I'm interested and I would be really grateful.

Problem with Grapejuice (Roblox)

Hello I am using Arch 5.xx.x, I play the following games on Roblox:



The problem is, Arsenal runs like crap, 240 FPS dropping to 10 every few seconds, and before you say PC PORATO GO BY NEW PEECEE, it ran on 240 FPS no drops on Windows.

All NVIDIA drivers are configured properly, but when I use my UHD graphics, it runs on 70 FPS no drops.

Note: Jailbreak runs fine.

Watch Dog doesnt work on Linux because they cant detect DirectX 11 (Steam Proton) - Any solution?

I got this when I run the game: Watch Dogs requires that your graphics hardware be compatible with DirectX 11, and have DirectX 11 runtime installed.

They must be so blind not to know that my RTX 2060 can run DirectX 11 heck its can even run DirectX 12 and also do Vulkan!!

Everhood in Wine on Mac

Hi, I was wondering if anyone here has tried and succeeded at getting Everhood to work in Wine, or any other compatibility layer based on Wine, on Mac? I can't seem to get it working in Wine, a Wineskin wrapper, or Crossover, (for the wrapper and Crossover, it opens up, but stays on a brown screen after the Unity logo disappears, but it just crashes immediately in normal Wine) and I wanted to know if there's any specific configuration or whatever that it does work with.

Persona 4 Golden Crashes on Opening Now Displaying Weird Error. Any fixes?

Trying to run persona 4 golden and now its not launching and giving me an error message when i try to run it even after trying different proton versions and other protontricks fixes. would post a screenshot but images aren't allowed so i'll just say what it says instead.

I already looked up if my computer (early 2015 macbook with ubuntu replacing macOS) runs the game, which it does so it isn't a hardware problem (99.9% sure)

Character Model Glitch on Dragon's Dogma for Steam Deck

I installed Dragon's Dogma on my Steam Deck last Friday, and so far it's working great, in spite of Valve having marked it as "not supported" the Monday afterward.

However, there's this kind of weird error that keeps popping up where certain NPC character models don't load properly, leading to some of their clothing or body parts disappearing. This is most noticeable with Madeileine, who has parts of her dress disappear and revealing a textureless character model on the lower half of her body.

I've yet to see any reports of anything like this happening on Arch Linux, and switching from Proton 7.0-1 to Proton GE 7-16 doesn't appear to do anything either. The game still works and runs nearly perfectly, so I've really no idea why it's marked as not supported since the model glitch is by no means game-breaking, but I'm also wondering just what could be happening here and if there's any workaround until Valve manages to find a way to support the game

Dawn of War Soulstorm and vkBasalt

Hi all I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

I was just wondering if someone would be able to shed light on why I can't get vkBasalt to work with Dawn of War Soulstorm.

I'm running Zorin OS 16 Core with vkBasalt installed (through sudo apt install vkBasalt) and I have ENABLE_VKBASALT =1 %command% set in the launch parameters on Steam for Soulstorm (the whole launch parameter is actually (ENABLE_VKBASALT=1 WINE_FULLSCREEN_FSR=1 PROTON_FORCE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE=1 %command% -forcehighpoly -nomovies, though I have tried it with only ENABLE_VKBASALT=1).

For some reason though I can't get vkBasalt to work. I've tried Proton 3.7-8 (which runs Soulstorm the most stable for me, Proton 5.0-10 and GE-Proton-7-9. None of them seem to load vkBasalt. I'm only using vkBasalt to enable the Reshade Colourfullness.fx, AdaptiveSharpen.fx and Vibrance.fx shaders.

Pressing the home key also doesn't do anything.

My vkBasalt.conf file is saved in the Soulstorm directory and the reshade-shaders folder is in /home/documents.

it might be that I set my vkBasalt.conf file wrong so here is the contents of it: https://pastebin.com/KkSXKLzY

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My new PC is about to arrive, and wanted to give Linux a try. Have a few questions for experienced users.

Very soon (2-3 more days) my new PC will arrive, and wanted to give Linux a whirl since I also bought a second SSD, so I can dual boot for a bit until I make my mind on whether stick with Windows or change to Linux. So in preparation, I wanted to ask a few things before it all arrives, so I can start looking into everything and have everything ready before I get to assembling the PC. So, first, this is the hardware I'll have:

  • Motherboard: Asrock B550M Steel Legend AM4
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 5600 4.4GHz Turbo
  • Video card: GeForce RTX 3050 8GB GDDR6 Twin Edge
  • 128gb SSD, 256gb SSD, and 1tb HDD
  • 16gb RAM 3200 MhZ

Alright, with that out the way, here are the questions, numbered so it's easier to answer to:

  1. What's the state of RTX 3050 drivers on Linux? Are they decent, or the video card is almost unusable on Linux? (Hard deal breaker if that's the case)
  2. What distro would you recommend? I would prefer something with a desktop layout similar to windows (I've spent my whole life using it, and it works for me, so don't see the need to re-invent the wheel), and preferably something that doesn't require me to tinker too much (I can tinker, have done so in the past mostly with installing mods and making some obscure software work, and hate to do it).
  3. I'm playing elden ring a lot lately (have stopped until my upgrades arrive), and play quite a few multiplayer games with friends online (mostly stuff like risk of Rain 2, deep rock galactic, and maybe soon league of Legends to play with some old friends). What's the general state of multiplayer in Linux lately? Remember hearing there was a lot of work done on proton due the advent of the steam handheld, but haven't really heard much about the state of multiplayer since.
  4. What popular apps absolutely don't work on Linux, nor are they expected to work anytime soon? I know that probably MS office won't work (can live without it), but wanted to know what other popular programs don't work at all.
  5. What pieces of software do I absolutely need for get the best gaming experience? (In windows I know that I just need up to date drivers, steam, and I'm good to go, but I've heard I will need some other stuff in Linux to get the best out of it. I think I've heard "lutris" named a lot, "proton", and I think something called "Feral Gamemode" or something like that, but wanted a few more details on this).

In any case, thanks in advance for any answers!

Elden Ring performance enhancement tips wanted.

Main System

I am currently using Proton GE 7.16, and the launch parameters: mangohud VKD3D_CONFIG=no_upload_hvv %command%

Game is on lowest settings, can barely hold 30 fps at 1600x900.

Are there any other launch options I can add to make it run better, or am I just boned?

Is there any way to make playlists or add user-made tags in Lutris?

I used to use Launchbox when I was gaming on Windows. Now that I switched to Linux, my only two options are Lutris and GameHub.

GameHub lets me add custom tags, but as the launcher is quite recent, and only managed by one person, there are still a lot of bugs or things that don't work properly.

Lutris seems much more popular, but I don't see any way to make playlists or add my own tags to games. I hear that the team doesn't take feature requests, so could someone explain to me how I could at least add custom tags to games, like directly in the code, so I can manage my games?

For example, I'd like to add a "Christmas" tag for games that I play around Christmas, or "couch co-op" for games that I can play with friends when they come over to my place.

Massive FPS drops in CSGO

sorry if this doesn't belong here, but i figured since i am on linux, this sub would give me the most help. Anw i've been having MASSIVE FPS drops in CSGO recently. It usually ran fine (60fps no vsync) but after the latest update im getting 100fps...until it crashes down to 15-20. It happens about every 20-30 seconds and the game is pretty much unplayable. I have tried -high -nojoy -novid, running with gamemode, and verifying game files. -vulkan stops the game from launching for some reason. Thanks in advance!

EEEKit Pro controller causes Linux to freeze

Whenever I try to connect the EEEKit Switch Pro controller, it causes Linux (Fedora 35) to freeze. This controller does work on Windows and the Switch.

If I try via bluetooth it freezes immediately. Here's a log from journalctl.

If I connect wired then it seems to work but only if I connect soon after booting. Any subsequently or later connection also causes the freeze.

This person seems to have a similar issue but there isn't a solution in that thread either.

How to Install NVIDIA Driver 340 on Ubuntu 22.04?

Hi, I have installed Xubuntu 22.04 on my GeForce G102M laptop and apparently the last supported driver version for my GPU is 340.108. I downloaded it from the NVIDIA's website. No luck. Some say that NVIDIA will not support newer kernels with 340 and that I should use Nouveau. Is that correct?

how to force a game to use GPU

Topaz Labs Applications

I've decided to slowly begin ditching Windows and moving over to Arch for daily usage. My current machine isn't beefy enough nor do the components support GPU passthrough via KVM (or I'd honestly just do that!) to use certain applications in a Windows VM.

I'm a huge fan of what Topaz Labs offers for Video/Photo enhancement, and use their products regularly for work. Via wine 7.7.1, I'm able to install the Video Enhance AI app just fine, it starts up, but once I set the application to start doing its rendering and upscaling, that's when the app crashes. I'm wondering if this is just a GPU issue (I have two EVGA 980Tis in this rig) and it's crashing as it's trying to do this processing over emulation. I have not tried using the CPU (i7-2600K @ 4.9GHz) to do the same task; maybe I should.

Worst case scenario, my work laptop will still be running Windows for the foreseeable future, and I can use it as well, but the mobile Quadro P1000 that's in it leaves a lot to be desired, and work will not give me the budget to upgrade it (it's a Dell Precision, so the GPU modules can actually be upgraded if you can get your hands on one from another laptop/Dell).

I'm just wondering if anyone is using anything from Topaz Labs, and what your workarounds have been.

AC Odyssey on Steam

I've poured hundreds of hours into AC Odyssey on PopOS 20.04 via Steam. I put the game away for awhile to play other games and also in that time I've updated my system to 22.04. I decided to play Odyssey again but when Ubisoft Connect launches, it throws an error that says

"Connection Lost - A Ubisoft service is currently unavailable. Please try again later.".

It's been doing this for several days, but I haven't played the game in quite some time so I'm not certain when this actually started.

I've reinstalled the game, I've tried different Proton versions, I've ensured that my Ubisoft account credentials work by logging into their website successfully but it continues to give me that error.

Vsync just suddenly stopped working.

So, i was working on my pc when there was a power cut. After it cam back, suddenly some stuffs the system werent behaving properly like pulseaudio, and vsync not working anymore. Was preparing to switch to pipewire anyways, so audio situtation got resolved(for most part). Vsync on the other hand is still not working, it literally cuts the fps in games by like 60 percent than intended and ofcourse presence of broken frames on videos here and there. Anyways to fix this. Use Artix linux.

Native or Proton?

Is there a way to easily know if you're installing the native or proton version of a game?

When clicking "Show only games that run on Linux" it doesn't do anything.

Maybe they should change this to show only "native" Linux games. What do you think?

been thinking about switching to manjaro for gaming, yet is it worth it for other stuff

I have been wanting to switch to manjaro since my pc is going old and slow, and I have always been interested in Linux, but the only reason I haven't switch to it is because I kinda need word and office 365 for my work

Is there a substitute for where documents on manjaro work on Linux??

Best Optimisations For Gaming

So Im pretty new to Linux myself, its only been about a month since I made the switch to Arch from Windows, and Ive been wondering what are the best things to do to squeeze every last bit of performance out of my system on a software level? This could include the best lightweight Desktop Environments to use, what system settings to change, options to add to the bootloader, what to disable, etc.

Components are; i5-10400, GTX1080, 16GB 3600Mhz CL18 RAM, 1TB 970 Evo Plus, 250GB Team MP34 NVMe.

Thanks in advanced.

SteamVR Linux Latency

Every time I've tried SteamVR on Linux with the valve index I have experienced very bad latency. The boundary is very delayed from the headset, and the headset view itself is extremely delayed in the SteamVR home or any loading menu. I have been playing VR for around 4 years now and nothing has made me sick until this. When I check the latency graph, it looks normal and the same as what I get on windows, but windows SteamVR feels so much more responsive. I am currently running arch and haven't tried it on any other distros, is this something I will have to deal with or is there something I'm missing?

Elden Ring "Inappropriate activity detected" error on Arch

I just installed ER on arch and I'm getting a "inappropriate inactivity detected" and inability to log in online after getting to the main menu. I tried Proton GE 7-15, 7-9 and Proton Experimental, all with the same result. I tried verifying the game data and also making sure my locale was correctly set, as I've read that could cause issues, but none of that worked. I don't know what else to try.

Mod Organizer 2 (Non Lutris) Skyrim CTD and Nexus link failure

For context I'm using Linux Mint

So I've tried both installing and then later on the Lutris version, I did this because I couldn't quite get the independent version to work properly, at first I couldn't get the lutris version to even install but thankfully a little digging led me to this comment

I got that to kind of work but with two problems, first I couldn't get nexus links to work, not even using the API key as the installer itself recommends, and second and more importantly, not only was the version of mod organiser outdated, but it required me to use Proton version 5.0, I don't know if it works better on other machines/specs but for me that makes the game terribly buggy/jumpy (I tested this on the intro with a fresh install before starting anything, and compared how the different required versions of proton run Skyrim).

That made Lutris Mod Organiser untenable so I went back to this github version and while I technically did manage to get it running, its even worse. While it does "recognise" Nexus links it breaks them and fails downloads instantly, and even worse it CTDs Skyrim on start up.

The Bethesda logo plays, then the Skyrim symbol appears but the main menu doesn't and after a bit the game crashes. This happens regardless of whether I use SKSE or not, whether I have mods on or not.

Both the terminal and the log section of Mod Organizer keep mentioning these errors (I've deleted repetitions and the date)

"EnableNonClientDpiScaling() failed for HWND .... (120) (Call not implemented.)

QPixmap::fromWinHICON(), failed to GetIconInfo() (Invalid cursor handle.)

Unsupported flags (9) used in QCollator"

The "EnableNonClientDpiScaling() failed for HWND" bug has numerous different numbers in the "...." part each time it shows up but it's always followed up by "(120)(call not implemented"

I'm certain this means I've screwed up a dependency of some sort somehow but I can't figure out which one, especially frustrating since I more or less got the Lutris version functional but as I said that ones borderline unplayable before I start any modding

I saw on forums that you need the lib32-nvidia-library which I do have installed so I am not sure what the issue is.

How to switch between OS' without touching the boot loader in between

I tried searching for this solution but couldn't find something relevant enough given how often instructions for dual-booting come in. That's not exactly what I need.

I have Pop_OS! and Windows installed on one machine, each on their own drives. I have rEFInd bootloader set up as well. This machine is in a closet and headless, and I interface with it via remote clients like RDP/VNC. I try to stay in Linux but sometimes a game just doesn't work so I reboot to Windows...and that's what I'd love help with.

Because the machine is headless, I don't want to have to go attach a monitor every time I want to swap OS'. Wondering if anyone knows of tools that enable me to:

  1. When logged into windows, automatically reboot to my Pop_OS! partition
  2. When logged into Pop_OS!, reboot automatically to Windows

Again, aiming to not have to interact with the bootloader at all. Any ideas?

MangoHud stops Elden Ring from Booting

I can't get steam's overlay to work with Elden Ring, I was advised by the forum to install MangoHud and use that instead, however MangoHud doesn't seem to work either. I found a previous thread from a month ago mentioning a fix. https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/tevpug/mangohud_is_preventing_elden_ring_to_boot/?sort=new

Either I didn't do it right or the fix doesn't work anymore, I tried removing the line GameMode and setting it to false in the config, neither worked.

SQUAD not opening after changing steam proton version.

SQUAD was working great for me, but during troubleshooting with another game I switched my steam proton version and now the game won't even open. I've switched back to what I was using and it still won't open.

The game says its open on steam but I get no splash page at all. Has this happened with any other steam games? I've restarted steam and my computer and it hasn't fixed anything.

Elden Ring used to work on Pop!_OS but it doesn't on Arch. Crashes on startup.

I'm trying to find crash logs but I can't, so if you can, please tell me where to find them so I can post them, thank you.

I tried using Proton Experimental, 7.0.2 and GE. None of them work. Also tried reinstalling, but it just crashes on startup. I don't think it's a hardware compatibility issue, as the game was running perfectly when I was on Pop just a week ago. I then switched to Arch. Other games run fine and my Nvidia drivers (proprietary) are up to date.

An alternative to SteelSeries Engine/GG software for Arctis Headphones on Linux

Hello. I have Steelseries Arctis 7 wireless headphones. They work and sound really great on Windows. They have this excellent software for them called SteelSeries GG in which you can tweak your headphones. In this software you can also select couple of sound presets. For example, you can choose a music preset, and the headphones will sound significantly better. Without selecting any of the preset, the headphones sound good but with the preset they sound even better. And here rises my question, is there any alternative to this on Linux? I don't need anything else, just the sound presets, so the headphones will sound better when listening to music.

Best emulator for playing old x86 maybe early x64 games?

So I'm interested in using an emulator for running old early-mid 2000's games, probably with windows vista. I don't want to use virtualization for security reasons and also from what I know using full emulation allows for a lot more flexibility and features such as rewinding execution, save states, ability to muck around with the hardware in unique ways such as by being able to run games at higher resolutions then they can do by default, inserting technologies like vsync and modern AA techniques that didn't exist at the time.

I could also probably play the games fine in good old WINE, but then i'm giving up the aforementioned features of emulation. I'm aware of DOSBox but I can't find anything about it supporting Vista so I assume the hardware it's emulating isn't able to run Vista well enough. QEMU is available but it seems to be missing a lot of the features mentioned that are in most typical emulators (although it's wide CPU selection would be nice for when I need to give some games a bit more grunt, GPU wise however it's selection seems to leave a lot to be desired, and won't even work for many games as AFAIK none of it's GPUs support direct3d unless I am mistaken).

So is QEMU all thats available? Or are there better alternatives for early-mid 2000's for x86/64 emulation?

Underrated advice for improving gaming performance on Linux I've never seen mentioned before: enable transparent hugepages (THP)

This is a piece of advice that is really beneficial and relevant to improving gaming performance on Linux, and yet I've never seen it mentioned before.

To provide a summary, transparent hugepages are a framework within the Linux kernel that allows it to automatically facilitate and allocate big memory page block sizes to processes (such as games) with sizes equating to roughly 2 MB per page and sometimes 1 GB (the kernel will automatically adjust the size to what the process needs).

Why is this important you may ask? Well, typically when the CPU assigns memory to processes that need it, it does so with 4 KB page chunks, and because the CPU's MMU unit actively needs to translate virtual memory to physical one upon incoming I/O requests, going through all the 4 KB pages is naturally an expensive operation, luckily it has it's own TLB cache (translation lookaside buffer) which lowers the potential amount of time needed to access a specific memory address by caching the most recently used memory pages translated from virtual memory to physical one. The only problem is, the TLB cache size is usually very limited, and naturally when it comes to gaming, especially playing triple AAA games, the high memory entropy nature of those applications causes a huge potential when it comes to the overhead that TLB lookups will have. This is due to the technically inherent inefficiency of having lost of entries in the page table, but each of them with very small sizes.

An feature that's present on most CPU architectures however is called hugepages, and they are specifically big pages which have sizes dependent on the architecture (for amd64/i386 they are usually 2 MB or 1 GB as stated earlier). The big advantage they have is that they reduce the overhead of TLB lookups from the CPU, making them faster for MMU operations because the amount of page entries present in the table are a lot less. Because games especially AAA ones use quite a lot of RAM these days, they especially benefit from this reduced overhead the most.

There are 2 frameworks that allow you to use hugepages on Linux, libhugetlbfs and THP (transparent hugepages). I find the former to be more easier and better to use because it automatically works with the right sysfs setting and you don't have to do any manual configuration. (THP only work for shared memory and anonymous memory mappings, but allocating hugepages for those is good enough for a performance boost, hugepages for file pages are not that necessary even if libhugetlbfs supports them unlike THP).

To enable automatic use of transparent hugepages, first check that your kernel has them enabled by running cat /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled. If it says error the file or directory cannot be found then your kernel was built without support for it and you need to either manually build and enable the feature before compiling or you need to install an alternative kernel like Liquorix that enables it (afik Xanmod doesn't have it enabled for some reason).

If it says always [madvise] never(which is actually default on most distros I think), change it to always with echo 'always' | sudo tee /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled. This might seem unnecessary as it allows processes to have hugepages when they don't need it, but I've noticed that without setting it to always, some processes in particular games do not have hugepages allocated to them without setting.

On a simple glxgears test (glxgears isn't even that memory intensive to begin with so the gains in performance could be even higher on intense benchmarks such as Unigine Valley or actual games) on an integrated Intel graphics card, with hugepages disabled the performance is roughly 6700-7000 FPS on average. With it enabled the performance goes up to 8000-8400 FPS which is almost roughly a 20% performance increase (on an app/benchmark that isn't even that memory intensive to begin with, I've noticed higher gains in Overwatch for example, but I never benchmarked that game). I check sudo grep -e Huge /proc/*/smaps | awk '{ if($2>4) print $0} ' | awk -F "/" '{print $0; system("ps -fp " $3)} ', and glxgears is only given a single 2 MB hugepage. A single 2 MB hugepage causing a 20% increase in performance. Let that sink in.

TLDR; transparent hugepages reduce overhead of memory allocations and translations from the CPU which make video game go vroom vroom much faster, enable them with echo 'always' | sudo tee /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled.

Let me know if it helps or not.

Theater of War2: Kursk

For those into simulation gaming, "Theater of War 2: Kursk" on Steam plays flawlessly on my Linux Mint 20.3 machine using Proton 7.2-GE-2. The game is a decade or so old, but really excellent. On my Windows 10 machine, using various compatibility options (Windows XP, Vista, 7) the game plays well for awhile but always dies in mid-session. The sim is worth the time to learn.

I can't run Borderlands 2 through proton (Failed to create D3D9 Device)

For some unknown to me reason when I try to run Borderlands 2 through proton an error message pops up

"Failed to create D3D9 device! This can happen if the desktop is locked"

I am on ubuntu 22.04 and i have an nvidia 1660 super, with proprietary driver. Every other game i tried with proton worked flawlessly. And on protondb i cannot find anyone who has a similar issue to me.

I have tried changing the proton version (i tried 5.13, 7.10, 7.16GE), clearing shader cache (although i don't know if i did it correctly, if anyone knows how to do it i would really appreciate help), skipping the launcher both by launch flags and moving the files, and (trying) to change options to reflect the needed resolution.
