Welcome to the Linux Gamers group. This group is governed by people interested in using the Linux operating system for gaming or game creation. Since quite some time Linux is no more a niche product hostile to advanced and demanding games. With big companies like IDSoftware releasing their games also for Linux the interest and acceptance of this system has grown over time. In comparison to other systems Linux offers a couple of unique features as well as particularities and troubles when it gets down to gaming. It's the goal of this club to promote and support Linux gaming.


Let the games begin :D

To anyone that has had problems with sound in meany Desura games on GNU/Linux, add "psdsp" to the start of the launcher
command, IE: in the .desktop file for Desura.
like this:
Exec=psdsp /home/gego/games/desura/desura %U

this fixes sound in meany games..

well sound problems mainly occur when you use a surround setup, otherwise it would just run fine (and i ve got surround so thanks for the comment)

I am sure most of you know it, but I thought I would mention that Oil Rush v1.0 is out now. I mention it because you had an article on it in the past.

If you check out the forum, there's a pretty long thread on this topic. Seems like there are a lot of Arch guys around these days.
