Gaming

Video driver

If you followed Installation/Useful packages/Graphics Driver your graphics driver & Vulkan should be already set-up correctly

Graphics card configuration tool

AMD

bash
yay -S radeon-profile-git radeon-profile-daemon-git
systemctl enable --now radeon-profile-daemon

NVIDIA

bash
yay -S nvidia-settings

Wine

Libraries

Other packages not listed by Lutris

bash
yay -S vkd3d lib32-vkd3d faudio lib32-faudio

Custom Wine/Proton

For custom Proton, I recommend GloriousEgroll or Tk-Glitch

Tk-Glitch also provides a wine version which can be installed with yay -U wine-tkg*.pkg.tar.zst

Programs

Install basic gaming tools

bash
yay -S lutris steam gamemode lib32-gamemode

Custom kernel

WARNING

If you are using NVIDIA and want to use a custom kernel you need to use nvidia-dkms since nvidia is just for the mainline linux kernel and nvidia-lts for linux-lts

bash
yay -Rdd nvidia
yay -S nvidia-dkms

Alternatively you can use nvidia-all to get the latest NVIDIA driver for all kernels

Zen

bash
yay -S linux-zen linux-zen-headers

Tk-Glitch

See linux-tkg

After installing

You need to re-generate your grub config

bash
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Tweak Esync

If this command prints out a value which is equal or greater to 524288 you're all set

bash
ulimit -Hn

However, if it doesn't, or you want to further improve it:

bash
sudo nano /etc/systemd/system.conf
sudo nano /etc/systemd/user.conf

append this in both files

ini
DefaultLimitNOFILE=1024:1048576
