How to increase performance in 3D games

Postby Anonymous33333 » Fri Feb 14, 2014 7:18 pm

I just installed cinnamon mint 16 on my laptop. I'm new to linux.
I want to play TF2, but there are a lot of frame skips and lag even on all lowest settings.
How can I increase the performance of these games?

I got the AMD driver install package from here
I had windows 7 before on the laptop and tf2 ran smoothly on high settings.
My graphics card is AMD Radeon HD 6400M/7400M series.

Hi did you get that to work from the AMD site? I tried it and it crashed my computer. I managed to get the right drivers through synaptic package manager by searching for FGLRX and then choosing FGLRX in the driver manager. If it doesn't appear in your synaptic search then I think you may need to add the repository that contains it.

I'm new to this too but have been in a a similar situation recently to you and have a similar spec machine from the sounds of it.
