o/ - I couldn’t find anyone in my corp/alliance running Linux, hopefully this forum has more devout followers of the penguin. My setup is running pretty well for a 10yr old laptop, but I have a few questions. I don’t want to create a bunch of threads so maybe someone can address them all here?
My Rig: Sony Vaio Laptop - Core i7 3612QM@2.1GHz- 8 GB RAM - 750 GB HDD - NVIDIA GeForce 640M LT - Ubuntu 20.04(dual boot/Win11) - Liqrorix kernel - Latest Lutris Wine ver
Installed and Running EVE (the easy way) with Lutris getting better performance than Win11 but some annoyances.
A few questions:
- Can’t run multiple monitors; Eve client full screen ‘captures’ mouse pointer. Running Eve client windowed (used to work) frees mouse but causes all sorts of UI weirdness. Is there a work-around/fix?
- Discord icon does not show notification status(always has red dot), no Discord overlay (tried Trigg/Discover, nogo). Would like to see Discord pings on game screen. Any solutions?
- Is there a better forum for Eve+Linux than this one?
- Would getting more RAM and/or SSHD help? or time for a new rig?
- Any recommendations for a good Linux gaming laptop?
TY in advance - J’T
