Hi. Long searched without results. Trying to understand ways to optimize settings for vulkan running. I am addicted to flight sim and X-Plane 11 is the game. With windows and other distros Linux, Vulkan runs well. Many foruns, people tell it is even better in Manjaro. But here it just crashes every time I try to open with Vulkan and not OpenGL. How do you suggest me to search how to improve vulkan settings or even Nvidia Drivers
HI @caiooliveirac, and welcome!
- Please see How to provide good information
1.1. If applicable, please see [HowTo] post screenshots and links
- Do you know if you’ve got the open-source or proprietary Nvidia drivers installed?
2.1. How did you install it?
It sounds, to me, like you’re using thee unofficial, open-source drivers, and that might be the reason why.
KDE UI has a page that permits you to right click and install. But it came already with an Nvidia driver. I have booted with non-free drivers (proprietary). I was suspecting maybe this bad performance is because the Manjaro recognized bad the board and installed bad driver or the game is running on intel integrated video card not with nvidia…
It might be that. You didn’t specify that you had hybrid graphics which I’m assuming means you’re using a laptop.
That’s why I asked for the information in my previous reply:
In addition, open a terminal and provide thee output for:

KDE shows another option called 390xx bumblebee and an option not hybrid (just video-nvidia)
Answer the question, or circle around, but only one way will go forward. Provide your system info properly.

From what we can see, you have properly installed the Nvidia hybrid drivers, on your dual GPU system.
Now with this kind of system, to run your games on the dedicated (Nvidia) GPU, you most likely need to tell to offload on the Nvidia GPU (by default it uses the Intel GPU). If you run your game through Steam, you can do that by going to your game properties and add into the Launch Options the following
It should force the use of Nvidia video card when starting the game.
See if it improves the situation.
If you are starting the games in other way, then tell us.
is this correct ?
I tried. And then the game starts… .I can choose the plane and the local. It begins to charge everything and exactly the instant that it is all going to appear in the screen, the games just disappear. Crash without error messages
What do you mean with “correct”?
I can only see one ext4/linux (filesystem) partition on your partition list. I’m assuming that that is your boot ssd, and that your games are on the external disk.
Im going out on a limb and guess that your external drive is formatted with the ntfs/windows filesystem. In my experience steam is incompatible for most games when installed on that filesystem with windows, and that games fail to launch in the way you described.
Moving a game that does not work to the main drive could diagnose if this is indeed the problem. And if so you might want to figure out how to add a ext4 partition to your main drive.
This was the only problem I had with running games, so hopefully its the same issue for you.
IF SteamLibrary on NTFS
I have only one SSD 256GB ext4 here. I mean it contains Manjaro and Steam in the same partition ext4
Your CPU Temperature is 67 C by 1,2 Ghz ?
What is your Temperature by 3,8 Ghz ?
can you check this
The access permissions in the folder / SteamLibrary / steamapps / common / Proton 6.3 / dist / bin /
are wrong. This applies to all Proton versions except Proton Experimental!
Solution: Delete the folder / dist in the respective version (attention only the folder NOT the archive!)
Then start the game with the Proton version. The / dist folder is now created correctly.
I found low temperatures with Manjaro. Playing games with windows was a hot experience.
Ok. I can move the folder with all the content elsewhere and then we expect that Steam would reinstall the folder with permission?
Do you have the game on Steam? Did you try to run it with Proton instead of native?
Also make sure you have these vulkan packages.
