Gaming on an Ubuntu Live USB - is it possible?
bintsmok commented on 10 January 2019 at 1:17 pm UTC

Hi. Can DRM-free Linux games that only use OpenGL be played on a Live USB of Ubuntu?


Thanks.

If you need the proprietary nvidia drivers, you'd have to make a custom Live CD of your own. I think Ubuntu has a utility for making such custom images; though I wouldn't know exactly where to look.

Otherwise, I don't see why not. If you also have a place to install the games, that is.

If you want to play games on Ubuntu on a USB stick I would highly recommend actually installing it to the stick (perhaphs from a second usb stick, or with a tool for the purpose). Otherwise you will be severely limited in terms of both ram and driver versions and everything will go away when you reboot.
