HDMI 2.1 AMD alternatives?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20 Feb 2024 - 11:38pm

Is there any alternatives for AMD users on Linux?

My TV does not have DP and I heard all adapters just lack features or plainly don't work.

RHEL administrator contemplating a Linux desktop environment for home use.

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20 Feb 2024 - 10:29pm

I've just had it up to my eyeballs with windows on my desktop at home.
I know I can do all of my professional work with no issues in a linux environment, but I work primarily in a commandline/backend environment.
I have a steamdeck, so I know I can do all of my gaming via proton.
My question is, Which distros can handle all of that, plus steamVR support, and still provide a comfortable user interface, and competent network monitoring solutions?
Of those that do, what are their strengths and weaknesses?

I'm no Linux newbie, I'm comfortable compiling my own drivers/utils if needed. But I would prefer to avoid manual command line drive mounting bullshit wherever possible.

Missing PlayStation Buttons with dualsense Edge

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20 Feb 2024 - 10:12pm

I tried to some games with my dualsense edge, but I always get Xbox buttons displayed. Steam recognizes that it’s a dualsene, only in games It displays Xbox buttons. If I try the same game with the same settings with a normal dualsense, it will be displayed correctly. I tried both wired and wireless. Does somebody know how to fix that ? (Kernel 6.7.5)

GTAV can't connect to rockstar games services

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20 Feb 2024 - 8:11pm

Maybe someone can help me here. I am trying to play gta v with heroic games launcher. It worked perfectly for a few days but since today when starting the game, rockstar games launcher tells me it can't connect to the rockstar games services (code 134). I already tried reinstalling gta, the wine prefix, changing wine version. Starting the game from my windows installation (using the same game files) works.

No game is running!!!

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20 Feb 2024 - 8:03pm

I installed zorin os 17 yesterday and i installed steam, lutris, proton,heroic etc etc on my pc.
now the problem that im facing is that my laptop hasnt been able to run games which it was running perfectly on windows like dota 2, elden ring, yakuza kiwami etc.

The problem im having is that for example: in dota 2, the game runs for 5 seconds (it;s very laggy as well) and it shuts down as soon as the music kicks in. Same with yakuza kiwami , the start up screen is so laggy. Elden ring launches and crashes asap.

I dont know what should i do i even have the nvidia drivers installed.
Please help me!!!!!.

specs are: i5 9th gen and 1660ti 6gb

How is VRR on Linux? And is there a distro and a DE I should prefer for optimal use?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20 Feb 2024 - 7:12pm

I've recently gotten myself a vrr monitor and I've been thinking about trying Linux Gaming again, but I've heard mixed things about its VRR support. I believe there was a a post about somebody who switched back to windwows because of it's lackluster support. Unfortunately, I cannot find the post.

Anyway, I personally would use Fedora with the KDE Plasma DE.

Baldur's Gate 3 - Crash after Hotfix 18 update on Steam

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20 Feb 2024 - 6:07pm

Hi everyone! Today I launched Steam and Hotfix 18 for Baldur's Gate 3 immediately downloaded.

Now the game crashes continuously: sometimes after a few seconds after loading a save, sometimes after half an hour... I'm starting the game in DX11 mode, from Steam I forced the use of "Proton Experimental" but I haven't solved nothing.

Anyone else have the same problems as me?

I'm running the game on a minipc with Ryzen 7 7735HS + Radeon 680M, 32GB RAM, Ubuntu 23.10. Until now I had never had any kind of problem with this game or any others :(

Guide: How to get Armored Warfare working on Steam with your my.com account.

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20 Feb 2024 - 4:47pm

I could not get AW working well or at all outside of Steam and the old rename the api dll trick no longer works (https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/1auzmkf/armored_warfare_best_wine_version_to_use/), but wanted to use my my.com account since I had decent progress and a couple premium tanks. After some fiddling this is what I got to work.

1) Install the my.com launcher. You do not need to install the game. I used the lutris GE 8-25 version and it ran fine. Using regular lutris wine versions it would not connect to the internet for some reason.

2) Install AW in Steam. I'm using Proton 8.0-5 and it runs great on max settings. Launch first time to confirm it works and let it update as needed. Close it when finished.

3) Open the my.com launcher folder. Find the launcher exe. For me it was right in C: in my prefix. ArmoredWarfareMycomLoaderA_en.exe

4) Right click on AW in the library and manage, browse local files. Find the launcher exe. For me it is right in the first folder when the browser opens. ArmoredWarfareMycomSteamLoader.exe

5) Rename the Steam launcher to something else or move it. Copy the my.com launcher over to the Steam folder and then rename it, giving it the Steam launcher name - ArmoredWarfareMycomSteamLoader.exe

6) Launch the game from Steam as you would normally. You should now be able to login as normal with the my.com account. I also only needed to do it once, so far it has remembered my info. The game takes a while to launch. I haven't played it in several years, but I believe I distinctly remember it taking quite a while to launch then as well.

I don't know if this will need to be re-done this if the launcher has an update. It might be a good idea to keep the my.com launcher installed just in case. It did update the game files without any issues this morning, but I've also not had a launcher update that I am aware of.

I also have no idea if Steam overlay works as I typically keep that turned off.

Lutris - Can't see hidden folder

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20 Feb 2024 - 4:25pm

I got Fluffy Mod Manager 5000 with Lutris running and want to Mod a Resident Evil game.

When I want to choose the .exe or install folder, I can´t see the hidden .local folder where Steam folder is located. The context menu does not give the option "show hidden folder".

Does mint offer very easy nvidia driver management for someone who's never used Linux?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20 Feb 2024 - 1:13pm

Lmde particularly. Asking because my card is amd and I don't know what nvidia is like from personal experience. The user has never used Linux before.
