Gaming setup guide for Linux mint

Post by cpedretti »

I optimized my installation for gaming with the excellent tutorial from Chris Titus that can be found here:

https://christitus.com/ultimate-linux-gaming-guide/

To get Libfaudio0 just follows the links according to your operating system:


LM19:

amd64 https://download.opensuse.org/repositor ... _amd64.deb

Code: Select all

sudo gdebi libfaudio0_19.07-0~bionic_amd64.deb

i386 https://download.opensuse.org/repositor ... c_i386.deb

Code: Select all

sudo gdebi libfaudio0_19.07-0~bionic_i386.deb

LM20:

amd64 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/u ... _amd64.deb

Code: Select all

sudo gdebi libfaudio0_20.04-2_amd64.deb

i386 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/u ... 2_i386.deb

Code: Select all

sudo gdebi libfaudio0_20.04-2_i386.deb

LMDE4:

wine dependency

Code: Select all

wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/libs/libsdl2/libsdl2-2.0-0_2.0.9+dfsg1-1_amd64.deb

Code: Select all

sudo gdebi libsdl2-2.0-0_2.0.9+dfsg1-1_amd64.deb

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libstb0 -y

amd64 https://download.opensuse.org/repositor ... _amd64.deb

Code: Select all

sudo gdebi libfaudio0_20.01-0~buster_amd64.deb

i386 https://download.opensuse.org/repositor ... r_i386.deb

Code: Select all

sudo gdebi libfaudio0_20.01-0~buster_i386.deb

To download and install the last custom Proton, easier than the tutorial's script:

Download https://github.com/GloriousEggroll/prot ... -ST.tar.gz

Install https://github.com/GloriousEggroll/prot ... ustom/wiki


It's working well on LM19/20 and LMDE4 :D

The kernel benchmarks make interesting reading. I really don't see the point of running modified kernels based on that graphic :shock:

In life you have to know how to get out of your comfort zone, after it is true that if you do not know what you are doing it is better not to try anything, I am lucky to have been able to test on a test pc.

The xanmod lts kernel is a bit better than Liquorix, in terms of latency and fps in a game, according to a benchmark performed with Phonorix.

Better than liquorix but not stock. Also, they are comparing different branches of kernel so the code improvements upstream may account for this to some extent. I'm not dismissing your personal experiences but it does put me in two minds as to whether or not I'd want to start messing with an install that performs perfectly well with the games I play for 2-3fps gain.

I admit that if you just play mahjong online, you don't need to bother to improve your configuration in terms of performance.

After that it's like with everything, you won't make a horse out of a mule, you gain a little in performance.

It's more shire horse than mule in that it happily runs whatever I chuck at it but won't break any speed records, a bit like your signature machine is no thoroughbred stallion either :lol:

Either way, the rest of the tips are of interest so I thank you for drawing them to my attention anyway and have bookmarked the thread.

Thank you for your feedback, in France we have a saying that "only idi@ts don't change their mind".

I don't need a thoroughbred stallion to play left4dead2, having less than 10 games most of which do not run on linux and very badly on wine ... (shit happens)

It does not help to have a racing machine not to exceed 80km / h or 50 mph, it is enough for my needs.

This is exactly what I was looking for. We would need a custom guide for Cyberpunk 2077:)
