ChimeraOS 33 has been released! (release notes)

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 1 Stunde 43 Minuten

Key components:

  • linux 5.17.9
  • mesa 22.0.4
  • nvidia 515.43.04
  • chimera 0.14.6
  • steamos-compositor-plus 1.9.4
  • RetroArch 1.10.3


Various Gamepad/Deck UI fixes
  • fixed the session being reverted to Big Picture Mode after a recent Steam update
  • fixed non-Steam games failing to launch
  • fixed performance overlay
  • fixed frame limiter
  • fixed night mode
  • fixed brightness controls
  • fixed ChimeraOS release version not displaying
  • fixed some minor graphical glitches


If you had manually switched to the Gamepad/Deck UI in the past or have custom environment variables defined, you may need to clear your customizations out and re-run `chimera-session gamepadui` to reap the benefits of the fixes in this release. If you encounter scaling issues in the Gamepad/Deck UI, enable "Developer Mode" under Settings->System and then turn off "OpenGL Composer" under Settings->Developer. The Gamepad/Deck UI still does not work with Nvidia GPUs. The internal name for the GameCube launcher script and related folders and files has been changed from `gc` to `ngc` to avoid a naming conflict. A migration will be done automatically and no action needs to be taken.

Graphics settings for Assetto Corsa Competizione acting weird.

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 2 Stunden 19 Minuten

Recently I made the switch to linux and so far it's been great. With this game I'm able to average 150fps with a 6600xt 3700x on high. Problem is whenever I reboot or even exit the game, my frames drop about 30 yet the settings remain the same. Only way to get around this is by selecting any other graphics preset, then changing it back to high. This is running Endeavouros kde. Proton experimental. Something similar with re2. I have to reboot the game for texture settings to change.

Any idea on why this might be happening?

Weird stuttering with games when using xf86-video-amdgpu

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 4 Stunden 50 Minuten

I have this problem that when I have the amdgpu xorg driver installed games will seem to stutter a lot and have some bad tearing. It doesn't seem to be caused by the game themselves as using mangohud to watch frametimes indicates no stutter at all. More confusingly the same games when only using the modesetting driver have no issues and only have minor tearing or none at all. I've tried all xorg related tweaks related to the driver and nothing seems to work.

I will state that I don't consider this a major issue for me as I can't even use freesync due to having a multimonitor setup and more posting this to see if other people have the same problem.

AMD Ryzen 5800X

AMD Radeon 5700XT

Garuda Linux KDE (That said I've moved away from their default setup of using latte as it gave me annoying issues with windows rearranging when waking from sleep)

If anyone can't explain why this happens, or has tested this themselves and found a similar result it would be interesting to know.

Just installed Ubuntu 22.04 my TF2 fps is even WORSE.

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 5 Stunden 5 Minuten

Last time I complained about my TF2 fps being about 25% of what is was on Windows, I heard people suggest that new versions of the AMD driver in newer versions of the kernel will increase performance.

I just upgraded from 21.10 to Ubuntu 22.04 with newer kernels and mesa version.

Turns out my performance got WORSE. WTF?

Will linux EVER be decent for gaming? I am waiting and waiting and waiting....

RX6700xt Max Power in Linux

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 5 Stunden 50 Minuten

Hi all, I would like to know, have any of you seen the power tables for AMD in Linux? I think there's a typo in the max power of the 6700, I bought one, and it is capped at 203 watts instead of 230 watts. Can someone confirm this is? Is it just me? I have a gigabyte RX67GAMING-OC.

HELP PLZ:Heroic "vkd3d" how to install it manually?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 6 Stunden 42 Minuten

Hi,guys.Last time some kind guy told me to use heroic instead of Lutris.I'm trying to play epic games by heroic games launcher.When I opened the game<Disco Elysium>,it crashed.

Then in the log I see that it can't open dxvk.I'm sure I have checked the automatic installation of dxvk and vkd3d in the heroic global setting.

By the way,my wine manager can't fetch from github(https://imgur.com/3rOSuha).

So I think there is an identical problem behind automatic dxvk-and-vkd3d installation and wine manager.

Then I tried to install dxvk manually.It's cheerful that it worked.But now in the log it shows(

Ok,fine.So I want to install vkd3d manually. Where can I find instuctions about its installation? Besides,maybe anyone here know how to solve the problem of my heroic wine manager?

My wine version is <wine-lutris-ge-proton7-12>.And my os is Pop!_os(latest).

Thank you all for your help!

Elden Ring not launching

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 7 Stunden 54 Minuten

Im trying to play Elden Ring on Arch Linux but as soon as I click launch the game says "Running" on Steam but after a second or two it just stops, I don't even get a black or white screen.

I'm using a RTX 2080 Super, I have both 32bit and 64bit proprietary nvidia drivers I've already tried installing the proton EAC runtime and using a custom proton GE and none have worked.

These are the last few lines in the log file where I see something go wrong.

V Rising - how to run - somewhat

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 8 Stunden 22 Minuten


I have been asked how I can play the game from a few linux-friends so I wanted to share here as well, in case someone wants to try it out.

Before you run though, you should know that any kind of alt-tab breaks the mouse and keyboard inputs - there is possibly a very easy fix for this but i am too lazy to figure it out.

So here it goes, use 'bottles" - create a bottle - install steam from the 'installers' tab - direct your normal 'steamapps' folder via shortcut - voila

If you get a black empty screen for steam via bottles - shift into the 'small mode' - you should be able to see your library there

Could you give me some tips on how to correctly host your own linux server, for online gaming:

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 8 Stunden 41 Minuten

Greetings linux gamers:

I'm trying to figure out how to correctly host my own linux server, so that I can invite my friends to play with me on games that support online multiplayer connections, either privately, or enable the linux server to be open to public gaming so random people can connect to my linux server to game.

I upgraded my xfinity/comcast internet service, so I now have access to some static-ip-addresses, and I use reserved-ip-addresses as well, so there's no issue there.

Anyways, I already have my own linux raspberry-pi-4 web server, which I'm using to host my Wordpress website. Anyways, I have plenty of pi-4 boards laying around, so I was wondering if pi-4 boards are viable for hosting a linux server for online multiplayer gaming?

I've already figured out how to host a Java Minecraft server, where I invited a friend to play, he just had to connect to a static-ip-address, then connect to my linux server through the Minecraft menu with my ip(which enabled on my end, as well as allowing his ip address to go through my firewall), and we were able to play Minecraft together through my linux server that I hosted on my pi-4 board.

But what about games like all of the call-of-duty games, skyrim anniversary edition, elden rings, all the halo games, and so forth?

Will they work with a pi-4 linux server that I'm hosting myself on my network?

And is there any extra open source software that I need to install to be able and host a linux server for gaming?

I heard cod pc uses a software called plutonium, as long as it's free and open-source, then I can install that software on my linux server to host cod online multiplayer games with my friends.

And how viable is this for cross-platform?

I'm using a linux gaming rig, but most of my acquaintances that I play with have either pcs running windows, or consoles like xbox or playstation. So will they be able to connect to my linux server to play online multiplayer games with me, hosted on my own linux server?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Games not working well (or at all) on linux

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 9 Stunden 18 Minuten

Got a new laptop, a particularly beefy one (Asus ROG Strix G533QS, RTX 3080, Ryzen 7 5800H, 32GB RAM). Found out some games aren't running well or running at all.

Aimlab from Steam = Clicking on play button leads to error message, with Proton Experimental, Proton GE or regular Proton.

Crysis Remastered from Lutris = not running at all unless I specifically disable DXVK NVAPI / DLSS

Battlefield V from Lutris = runs well unless I enable DirectX12 + RTX. Then it refuses to run at all.

A Hat in Time and Cyberpunk 2077 from Lutris = doesn't run at all, no matter what I change.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey from Lutris = doesn't launch unless I disable MangoHUD.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider from Lutris = game launcher runs, but crashes right after you press the play button

Things I tried:

Note this Fedora 36 was installed saturday, so it's not old and broken.

Nvidia drivers and Asus stuff was installed following this guide: https://asus-linux.org/wiki/fedora-guide/

I'm not scared to switch to other distro or afraid to use the terminal, been a linux user for the past 5 years. First time using Nvidia Novideo drivers though.

Golden Drake Linux: Arch for gamers and game developers!

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 23. Mai 2022 - 20:44

I've created a custom Arch Linux installer designed with gamers and game developers in mind, Golden Drake Linux (GDL), so if you have a minute to look at the README or try out the latest release, please feel free to share feedback, advice, constructive criticism, gentle insults, etc. :) Thanks in advance!

Why might a gamer/dev want to use this installer? Here's my basic answer:

  1. It provides menus during installation for a ton of FOSS games, gaming-related software, development-related software, video recording/streaming/editing software, etc., inc. some carefully-selected AUR packages.
  2. Helpful configurations are applied according to detected hardware (e.g., if an NVIDIA card and another GPU are detected, GameMode will be configured so it also activates prime-run to ensure the NVIDIA card does all the heavy lifting when using gamemoderun).
  3. It may be easier, quicker, and more convenient than using the standard Arch Linux installer (unless you're already very experienced and prefer setting up every little detail your own way, of course).

PLEASE NOTE: 1. In some cases, the "Auto-partition with Encrypted LVM" option may fail completely or may seem to succeed and yet result in a system that doesn't boot properly, so you may want to avoid that option for now. This is a known issue and still being investigated. 2. The standard method for installing Arch is to follow the ArchWiki's installation guide, completing each step via command line according to your particular hardware and preferences. If you use GDL (or any unofficial Arch installer/helper) instead, those steps are, to one extent or another, completed for you in ways that may or may not be ideal with respect to your hardware and preferences. Naturally, this also means you're missing out on much of the educational value of the standard installation process and may not fully understand how your system was set up and configured. For these reasons and more, you should not expect tech support from official Arch sources, such as the Arch Linux Forums. Also, regardless of where you seek help online, please remember to respect other people's time and, before posting any questions/requests, always first search extensively online for answers/solutions as 99% of the time your question/issue has already been addressed multiple times in multiple places. Feel empowered (and grateful) to take advantage of the wealth of useful information already out there, learn from it, do your best to discern whether some of the advice might be bad, outdated, or limited to specific circumstances, and carefully apply what you learn to your situation. Developing the confidence to solve problems in this way will be of great benefit to you! You'll quickly discover how much the ArchWiki is your friend, along with various StackExchange sites such as Unix & Linux and SuperUser.
