Tried to create a .desktop file for java

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 33 Minuten 50 Sekunden

i tried to create a .desktop file for java so that i can just double click on the jar file to play on Salwyrr client (minecraft client) . I checked a thread from askubuntu since pop os and ubuntu are similar and did this .

[Desktop Entry]





Exec=java -jar %f






the java thing was seen on the 'Open With Other Application' tab but after clicking it , the mouse pointer icon changed to a loading icon and after a while just became a pointer icon and the jar file did not open

i would like to know what i did wrong and what i should do for it to work

is it something with the .desktop file i created or is it something else?

What is the differences between Arch and SteamOS? I noticed that SteamOS doesn't come with pacman completely set up...

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 2 Stunden 26 Minuten

...And it got me wondering how software is intended to be handled on SteamOS. If pacman isn't the intended way, what is?

I was also just wondering in general the differences between the two distros. All my searches could find was either clickbait articles, clickbait videos, or articles from older versions of SteamOS that were from the Debian based version

Is MO2 easier to set up on the GOG version of New Vegas?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 5 Stunden 32 Minuten

I'm considering buying New Vegas again on GOG, because it's incredibly difficult to set MO2 up on the Steam version. Most recently I've tried using SteamTinkerLaunch, but that only worked for a little bit and then didn't work anymore, and I got into kind of a fight with the dev over whether the issue was with my computer or STL itself and can't actually get help from him anymore.

So I'm wondering if I could just circumvent the Proton MO2 nonsense and get it working with just the GOG version and just running them both through the same wineprefix.

Pop_OS! 22.04 vs Ubuntu 22.04 Benchmaks (Horizon Zero Dawn, Red Dead Redemption 2)

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 6 Stunden 28 Minuten

I was wondering what was the performance difference between a supposedly gaming distro with a more bleeding edge components, and a more conservative one. The comparison has been performed on a Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro (I wanted a device constrained). The specs are:

CPU: Intel Core i7-8550U (8t 4c) 4GHz. Performance governor for both.

GPU: Nvidia GeForce MX150

Wine: Lutris-7.2-2-x86_64

Ram: 16GB

Ubuntu 22.04 Pop 22.04 Kernel 5.15.0 5.19.0 Nvidia Drivers 515.65.01 515.65.01 Display Server Wayland Xorg

720p without FSR or any upscaling technique. Everything set at minimum.

And here there are the results:

Ubuntu 1 2 3 4 5 Median Average HZD Min 3.0 3.0 3.0 4.0 4.0 3.0 3.4 Max 28.0 26.0 27.0 28.0 29.0 28.0 27.6 Average 12.0 12.0 12.0 12.0 12.0 12.0 12.0 RDR2 Min 18.0 12.5 19.7 16.4 18.7 18.0 17.1 Max 37.4 62.7 35.6 48.9 47.8 47.8 46.5 Average 26.6 26.5 26.6 26.6 26.6 26.6 26.6

Pop 1 2 3 4 5 Median Average HZD Min 1.0 5.0 4.0 4.0 5.0 4.0 3.8 Max 37.0 34.0 31.0 31.0 33.0 33.0 33.2 Average 13.0 13.0 13.0 13.0 13.0 13.0 13.0 RDR2 Min 14.1 20.7 18.0 22.4 14.5 18.0 18.0 Max 60.2 35.8 38.3 33.7 60.3 38.3 45.7 Average 27.3 27.2 27.2 27.3 27.2 27.2 27.2

The % deltas are (Pop - Ubuntu)/Ubuntu:

Electronic Arts games on steam

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 8 Stunden 7 Minuten

Has anyone managed to find out how to play Electronic Arts games on Linux through Steam? ProtonDB can give a Gold or a Platinum rating but Steam does not install the required Origin. I had tried Lutris but this does not work either, despite syncing my Origin account. It asks to enter in an activation number. Steam had never asked for this using the Windows operating system.

Open for suggestions

"Fortune's Run" (FPS/RPG) received a Linux native demo

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 10 Stunden 44 Minuten


[Fortune's Run is ] a classic FPS with undertones of role-playing in the spirit of Deus Ex and EYE: Divine Cybermancy, featuring the campy tone of space operas and titles like Metal Gear Solid.


Fortune's Run received a Linux build for its free of charge demo. Even though its developer claims that demo is only for Nvidia users and AMD GPU users should enable Proton, native demo worked without a problem on AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 with Mesa 22.


Can a Steam Deck user try the Linux demo to see it runs with AMD Graphics fine? Thanks!
