Big Picture issue with Fedora 35

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 1 Stunde 1 Minute

Since upgrading to Fedora 35 I have this weird issue when quitting a game, back into Steam BP. Even though BP starts up normally, when quitting a game it ends up switching into what looks like windowed mode without decorations. I have to exit BP and reopen it for it to run in fullscreen again.

Has anyone else had that issue before? Used to work fine before the upgrade.

Hey people, i recently got into playing DA:I again, and i just can't do it without some mods. On my Windows PC, i used frosty mod manager, but i don't know how to even get it to start on Linux. I own the Steam version of the game, if it helps.

Steam bans?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 29. November 2021 - 22:05

What is the state of encountering steam bans given the different emulation approaches to rubbing windows only games? Or other things to watch out for. My library is enormous right now and a ban is the last thing I want.

Thanks for all the great info!

Graphics card support in Linux?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 29. November 2021 - 20:04

When I was first starting out, I remember everyone saying how Nvidia cards weren't well supported because the drivers weren't open source.

I'm trying to decide on hardware, I'm looking at system 76 laptops but need to know how well this stuff is supported nowadays as I look at other vendors

Overwatch never stops 'Compiling shaders'

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 29. November 2021 - 19:16

Hi, I have a fresh install of EndeavourOS on an AMD Thinkpad and I tought it'd be fun to see how Overwatch would run on it. - I installed wine-staging, Lutris and gamemode and just installed OW from the script. It installed and runs just fine, it just doesn't seem to ever stop 'compiling shaders.' I left the thing on for a few hours over a couple of days but it just never goes away? On my Pop install (Nvidia/Intel) the 'compiling shaders' thing goes away after a few minutes. The only thing I customized in Lutris is adding __GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE_SKIP_CLEANUP 1 to the game's config. I was wondering if I missed an obvious step or if I can help it in any way?

Am I trying the impossible ?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 29. November 2021 - 19:10

I have a dual boot with 64 bit Windows 7 and Lubuntu 20.04 LTS.

I installed Wine and Lutris on Lubuntu, I added games on my Windows drive to Lutris choosing Wine as the runner and not changing any other thing, I tried playing them and nothing happened except the system got so slow I had to restart...

Arch Linux with GUI/DE site?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 29. November 2021 - 18:39

So I recently f'd up my Arch installation. I wanted to get a GUI/DE installed but I ran into some trouble so now I'm back to where I started... or I might not be...?

I found this site... ( https://archlinuxgui.in/ ) that claims to provide an Arch iso with GUI/DE of your choosing (along with other stuff) preinstalled.

I am just wondering if there are any hidden malicious apps installed to allow remote access or something... am I just being paranoid? Anyone else heard of this site? Can I trust these iso-files?

Is it possible to have default settings for wine in Lutris?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 29. November 2021 - 17:57

I always want certain settings in my wine configuration. For example, I never want / to be mounted as Z, and I never want my documents or downloads folder symlinked. Is it possible to change default settings, so I don't always have to open wine config to change this?
