Re: Unable to install Steam from Software Manager with 19.3

Have you tried installing it through terminal?

I think I had the same issue when I installed Mint 19 this spring that the software manager on the GUI said it's unavailable but through terminal it installed without an issue.

Re: Gaming on Linux Mint 20

That's very pity that many games are not available for Linux. I bought recently the GTA 5 and I couldn't install it. Rockstar Social Club version? I think it's best to stick to Steam whenever it's possible. The game is gold rated in ProtonDB. Also the Rockstar laucher works with Lutris, though I ha...

Re: one PC exectuing Linux Mint for gaming ?

I use Mint 19 on both an older laptop and a desktop PC. I generally have good experiences with gaming on Mint. There are some overhead because of the compatibility layer, but most single player games are mostly absolutely playable. New releases may need a couple of days or weeks before the community...

Re: Run .swf games without gnash

On Mint 19.3 interactive content in gnash bugged out anyway. But Adobe Flash Player is also in the repositories and it works fine.

Re: Setting GPU Execution Cap

I'd never tried this, but AMD's official driver should ( https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/radeon-500-series/radeon-rx-500-series/radeon-rx-580 ) allow you to assign dedicated tuning setup for each game (it does on Windows at least). So I guess you can just set an underclolck for that specific...

Re: Another Steam issue

So, what appears to have helped: After trying everything I found on various forums and breaking then restoring my system from image, I decided to upgrade to Mint 20. After I did the "Purge PPAs and 3rd party repositories" step here: https://linuxmint-user-guide.readthedocs.io/en/latest/upg...

Re: How is Linux gaming these days?

I don't play the popular multiplayer games like LoL, PUBG and Fortnite which have known issues with their anti-cheat systems. The only game that I had issues with is BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend which I couldn't run for a good 3 or 4 weeks after I first installed it, but after some updates and tw...
