|Are you one of those who use Ubuntu and Unity? Fed up with Unity + Compiz's poor performance when it comes to running games on Linux? Well, I invite you to discover an interesting alternative.|
The concept behind FSGamer is very straightforward: why not start a separate graphical X server session using a super lightweight window manager like openbox and then run the game in question? By default, it uses tty8, although it is possible to change this setting. Just by pressing ctrl-alt-f7 you go back to your original session. Did you like the idea?
1.- Download the file deb by FSGamer.
2.- Install the downloaded package:
sudo dpkg -i Downloads / fsgamer_0.1.1_all.deb
3.- Change the configuration file Xwrapper.config so that FSGamer can start a session of the graphical server X (do not forget the corresponding backup):
sudo cp /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config.backup sudo gedit /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config
Change the line that says allowed_users = console by allowed_users = anybody.
4.- Do the following to enable audio on the new X Graphics Server instance:
sudo usermod -a -G audio $ USER
You may have to reboot the machine for these changes to take effect.
To run it, just run the following command:
