Tips on distro for gaming Swedish

Hi! I’m getting a new laptop any day now and I plan on going back to Linux after maybe a decade on Windows. What works best for gaming nowadays? Is manjaro good for that? I prefer a distro with a nice name but of course that’s not the central thing. I’ll also do some book keeping, writing et cetera but I don’t think...

The usual suspects are Bazzite, Garuda, Nobara. But you can game on every distro. To give proper advice, some info on your hardware would be needed.

One important part for gaming is the graphics card - I cannot comment on that particular one, but I would recommend searching it like “nvidia rtx 4070 + linux” so you can find advice and recommendations. You could also hop over to www.protondb.com, select that card and see what most people are running. Or there is this linux-hardware.org page, where you find lots of info about whats being recommended.

Nvidia used to be problematic with Linux, but I also have an older Nvidia card and haven’t run into any problems (yet). Also there’s lots of new development in that area, I’m sure it’s gonna be ok. Also some distros offer preinstalled Nvidia drivers that you simply select in a driver manager - that for example is the case for Linux Mint.

Keep at it, you got this and there’s so many people and resources online to help. Best of luck!

Just for choosing: distrochooser.de - or put some distros with a tool like Ventoy on a USB stick and do a live install to test it on the actual system. The many options are a great thing, but of course not easy to get into at first. So I’d try not to overthink it, distrohopping is a hobby for some of us :D

For trying out how it looks and feels: distrosea.com

Distributions intended for hardware diagnosis and other related utilities

Within the GNU/Linux ecosystem there are all kinds of tools to diagnose the system, or rather, to check the state of the hardware, but there are few distributions specifically designed to perform this task, or at least that I know of, because the only distribution I know that is intended to diagnose the computer, (Or ​​at...

Back in the day we used Knoppix, I know it still exists, but no clue if it’s still viable?

Have a good transition and if you stick with Mint, I’d recommend the official forums for any questions: forums.linuxmint.com/index.php

Mrs. Troi, this is a great picture. Would you share where and when you took it?

I just finished setting up Linux Mint for an old buddy of mine on his old dog of a laptop, rendering it useful once again! (i.imgur.com)

Edit 2: to everyone suggesting an SDD: i know. Look, if this guy had enough $$$ for an SSD, he could buy a used lappy less than half the age of this one that has an ssd and 2-3x the memory....

I’m sure it’s fun, really, but having a rootkit in a PVE game and that PSN requirement on top, that all seems fishy. I know Sony backed off for now, but like you said, it’s a live service and they might change it again. I still hope players can enjoy it and have a great time.

Not at all, in Linux Mint for example I simply picked the recommended driver and I had no issues with that.

To Cinnamon? What did you experience, please?

I’m using Steam without any issues on Linux Mint. If you consider that, people prefer installing the .deb from the website over flatpak or the version of the Software Manager in Mint.

Thank you for elaborating!

This really caught my eye, but does it make sense for an older PC?

I’m using a web-based reader for that, it does the syncing for me. For example freshrss.org or www.commafeed.com
