Only Elite is impacted so much by the compositor. Other games, both native and Wine/Proton with DXVK, are affected by it but still playable, even more so if I were to tone graphics down. Elite seems to stutter no matter what. Unaffected titles include Overwatch and Snowrunner in Lutris with lutris wine build; Dark Souls 3 and Rocket League in Steam with latest Proton. These being the most resource-intensiveOnly steam performance is impacted?
Have you tested other gl/vk utilities or games or benchmarks outside of steam?
Yeah, that's my hopefully temporary solution for now. Using i3, got a script that toggles the compositor, linked to it in /usr/bin and just running it from there with dmenu. It's something /shrugIf you are using a compositor is it safe to assume you are using a window manager instead of one of the two big desktop environments? If so would it not be best to have a keyboard shortcut that can toggle the compositor off/on so you can toggle it before and after you game? When running a WM myself that is what I did as compositors can have a big impact on games.
Hm, good point, I have not... will do!are you playing in full screen mode or windowed? If windowed, have you checked if full screen mode suffers the same impact from the compositor?
...eh? Removing sounds all too drastic when one can just enable or disable it perfectly fine /shrugIf it's the same whether you are fullscreen or windowed or if you're already fullscreen, then I'd think the compositor needs to go from your system.
The Launcher will crash if your cursor enters the password field without corefonts installed. This sounds like what is happening. Maybe try installing corefonts again. Although it's possible there's a new bug in wine that's causing this. Which version are you using?I've been running a dual boat machine for 4 years, just to play ED. Whilst building a new PC today, decided upon tring to get ED working on Fedora 32 and after spending most of the day attempting to get ED working, I've admitted defeat.
A huge shame, as I have to build my new machine as dual boot machine, just to play ED!
Its a pain. I tried standard wine and Lutris (wine seemed to have a loop bug with .Net 472 in there!).
Installed; dotnet472, corefonts, quartz, vcrun2017 dxvk
I got as far as the launcher firing up, but upon entering my email address and pressing enter, I wes thrown out with a COM error.
Unhandled Exception "Exception from HRESULT:0X88980406"
Before I blat my newly installed Fedora OS, anyone got any other ideas.
Note: I don't have ED via Steam, only the Frontier Store
You can get the Steam key for your current account if you want it. I got it just to make it easier to play ED on Linux.
$ wine --version wine-5.10 (Staging)
Sorry, I forgot to mention, I also had win7 in there.
the two commands I'm running are;
WINEPREFIX=~/ED_wine winetricks ie8 dotnet472 corefonts quartz vcrun2017 dxvk win7
WINEPREFIX=~/ED_wine wine "ED_wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Frontier/EDLaunch/EDLaunch.exe"
Launcher first up. When loging in to my account, I can type in both text boxes (email / password). However, the dialog will not accept the email address until enter is pressed in the email address field (if enter isn't pressed you just get a "This is a required field." message), and it is at this point the Exception from HRESULT:0X88980406 error is generated.

For the time being, I'm getting up a dual boot as I've a spare 240gb SSD I can throw Win10 on.
<your-steam-path>/steamapps/compatdata/359320/pfx), and now it should be ready to go. Sometimes when launching from Steam the ED launcher (which you still see with Steam too) might throw in a couple of errors or warnings that can be ignored.
<your-steam-path>/steamapps/compatdata/359320/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/Saved Games/Frontier Developments/Elite Dangerous/so you need to create this path if it does not exist.
This is the first time I cannot get Elite Horizons started from Kubuntu 20.04. I can still start it from OpenSuSE Leap 15.1 on the same machine. Both have different places where the 20Gb game code is stored.
The startup window pops up and shows the blue Play button.
When pressing it, this error appears: 'Unhandled exception: Attempt to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.'
It goes on to say the EDLaunch.exe has encountered a serious problem.
I used Steam to uninstall Elite and then reinstalled it. The problem remained. I used the both following command lines, without succes:
wine64 EDLaunch.exe /novr
wine64 EDLaunch.exe /novr /steam
I include the error log.
Wine build: wine-5.12 (Staging)
Version: Windows 7
Host system: Linux
Host version: 5.4.0-28-generic
Perhaps someone can tell what is going on here.
In the Steam Play Settings Proton 5.0-9 is enabled. How does installing '.net4 in it' go?I suggest using proton (after installing .net4 in it). It's super easy and should be an identical setup regardless of which distro you're using assuming you're using steam's. Import the game into steam or use a different game launcher if you like
What do you mean by pax security features added to OpenSuse that aren't playing nice? The problem is with Kubuntu, not with OpenSuSE.Is the wine version exactly the same for Kubuntu? 9/10 times this type of thing is a regression bug that has popped up in the newest wine and is fixed by reverting to the previous wine version. In some cases switching from wine staging to vanilla will work but I usually have more luck with staging. I'm still on wine staging 5.6. If neither previous wine or proton work perhaps some type of pax security features were added to OpenSuse that aren't playing nice (such as memory randomization / non executable memory protections). If that's the case you might have to add boot options to the grub bootloader that disable these (or just try a different distro).
