Hi there, I just did a fresh install of Manjaro KDE on my laptop with a dual Intel and Nvidia GPU. I’ve got bumblebee setup and am able to run Linux games such as Team Fortress 2 on my Nvidia GPU no problem. However I am seeing an issue with Windows games running through Proton. I have verified on protonDB that these games do in fact run on Proton. When I click play the “Preparing to launch…” window comes up and it just gets stuck there. I’ve tried running steam via command line and this is what happens the first time I hit play on a proton game:
GameAction [AppID 1229490, ActionID 1] : LaunchApp changed task to ProcessingInstallScript with ""
fsync: up and running.
wine: RLIMIT_NICE is <= 20, unable to use setpriority safely
If I hit cancel and try it again, I just get
GameAction [AppID 1229490, ActionID 2] : LaunchApp changed task to ProcessingInstallScript with ""
All my games are installed on a ext4 drive. I have a SSD where my OS is installed and a mounted HDD. I have games installed on both and Proton games do not work on either, so I feel this isn’t an issue with my storage devices.
Anyone have any ideas what may be the issue here? Any help is greatly appreciated!
Proton requires Vulkan and Bumblebee doesn’t support that,what gpu do you have?
You can try forcing Proton games to OpenGL instead of Vulkan but the performance can be a little worse than normal,right click on the game on steam and go to properties and in the launch options type
