    When I run out of RAM the oom-killer takes Xorg down with it.

        R5 3600 / 5500XT 16GB RAM Arch

        It doesn't run smoothly at 60fps even on lowest settings, but max settings 30fps is smooth.

        There's probably a Proton bug that causes excessive CPU load, it pegs one thread at 100% at all times.

            If it wasn't my only path forward to making my Oculus Rift even vaguely usable without relying on Metashit I probably would not be using Wayland.

                I would try it more if I could get QT apps to scale in Walyand like they do in X11
                Wayland QT seems to ignore my .profile env vars that work just fine on X11 🙁

      I mean, Linux is indeed a piece of shit but I don't see myself going back to Windows and Apple is for literal gays.
      I miss Windows XP.

          Nah 7 was already bloated. XP was the peak, but the hardware advanced too fast for it still being reliable.

      You don't look like that and you never will.

      Linux is an OS made mostly for servers and embedded systems, it is inferior to Windows in everything related to desktop computing.

      No one asked.

    Not endless legend.
    Shit just refuses to start no matter what. If i run it via pure wine it starts but crashes at the loading screen unable to find steam api. If i run it through steam proton it won't start at all, not even a record in the log.
    Tried 32 bit, no difference. Tried all the various keys, different proton versions.
    Bg trilogy won't even start too.
    And this game ran well on the exact same pc when it was windows 7.
    In getting more and more tired of this. Not a single game just works, there are no built in workarounds for each game, you have to dedicate at least half an hour beforehand to find out why game won't start in your particular case and what you should do if you even can.

        Mint latest, i already played through planescape, new vegas and age of wonders 3 on it, currently treating through early stages of morrowind. There's really no way to tell if a game will work or not, what a shame.

          Are you checking out protondb or winehq for workarounds?
          Also why are you using Mint, most necessary important updates are like years behind compared to a rolling release distro, which can affect compatibility with games.

      Did you start it with PROTON_LOG=1 %command% or what log are you talking about? Steam itself sometimes shits out some info if you start it from the console.

    Anyone by chance know how to make controllers inhibit xscreensaver? Do I have to fuck around with some esoteric udev stuff? Happens on any DE.

      I don't use controllers very often so I haven't had that issue, but there's this small Python script which should help you.

      Anon please, I'm mostly a windows user but this is just not true. Unless your definition of computing is consuming fotm triple aids games and using platform locked solutions like adobe, there's not much that windows does better. If anything, systems offer more or less the same experience.

      Don't run random shit from the internet and you should be fine. If you want to mod games or use tenscent spyware games from the epigstore try running everything through bottles or firejail.

                Shadowplay is more efficient, since it does less frame transfers between CPU<->GPU.

      No one asked, but neither am I.
      If I were trans then I'd probably use Windows for the pride flag on the start menu every pride month.

          Probably depends on the Windows version, but the point is Windows supports trans rights. Use Windows to show your support you bigot.

        What the fuck is a pride month, some american thing? And you are joking with whatever flag, right? I heard about some gnomish symbols in the windows start bar or whatever, but I thought this was 4chan trolling. Now I'm not so sure anymore.

      So do I.
      I remember when I tried Linux for the first time in 2010 I found KDE 4 to be the most unusable piece of shit ever and refused to even consider it for years.
      Then I tried KDE5 like four years ago and been a happy camper since then. The jump they've made with that is insane.

        4 felt like a prototype for 5. it was 5's longhorn pretty much.

        it's funny that it manages to be more consistent than win10/11

    I tried to play Melty Blood AACC, but the launcher doesn't want to recognize all the buttons on my stick. Can't get the dpad to work on my controller either, so I just said fuck it. Although maybe I should try launching it through steam.
