GLXOSD in Wine?
Usual 16 May, 2017

Hi guys, newish linux user here. I recently found out about GLXOSD, and I wanted to monitor my fps of my wine version of steam since the steam overlay is hit or miss. But I cant seem to get it working. I tried by adding the glxosd --steam %command% on the launch options like the guide says, but get a wine window error with "File not found" message.

Next, tried by putting on the terminal "glxosd wine path/to/steam.exe", but the overlay doesn't appear, and adding the glxosd --steam %command% launch option gives me the previous error.

What can I do to get GLXOSD running in wine steam? Running Manjaro btw.

Thanks.

Quoting: tomlowshangI suspect glxosd is 64-bit while wine is 32-bit.

How do I launch a 32 bit application on a 64 bit OS with GLXOSD?

Thanks for the help tomlowshang. :)

Now I need to search how to compile those binaries.
