Issues after upgrade to Linux Mint 20
DMG 10 Jul

Hello!
I did upgrade my linux mint to version 20 today and straight after that noticed, that my games works a bit more laggy, than before. And ProtonGE not working at all. For example, if I open ARK with ProtonGE (5.9 or 5.11), I'm stuck with this screen:

With proton 5.0-9 works just fine, but still a bit more laggy. Does anyone know, what could cause this issues? On Linux Mint 19 I did not have such problems.

What graphics card/drivers are you using?

DMG 10 Jul

vendor : NVIDIA Corporation
model : GM107M [GeForce GTX 960M]
driver : nvidia-driver-440 - distro non-free recommended

But I didn't change nvidia driver. It was same in Linux Mint 19.

Today with proton 5.0-9 works fine, but with any of ProtonGE I can't even launch that game. I have no clue, why is that

Do you have errors if you launch the game with the terminal ( or maybe with the log option in lutris)? If yes it could probably be useful to post it.

Did you do an inplace upgrade? or was it a clean install.

If in place try deleting the GE proton folders, rebooting steam, then re-"install" the Proton GE builds.
Also try running the application from the terminal, either by invoking the steam appid directly or by running steam from the terminal. when the game boots there maybe an error output that is helpful.

I checked, but I don't see any special warning compared to proton 5.0-9 version. They both throw same warnings. Game still play sound in background, but I can't access it with ProtonGE.

Here is message from console:

Only error, what I can find in logs is this one:

You can also try reinstalling the nvidia driver.

Quoting: DMGI upgraded from Linux Mint 19
You don't mention what (sub)version of Mint you had, so I'll just assume it is 19.3. In that case you can check out this upgrade recipe from the Mint team: https://linuxmint-user-guide.readthedocs.io/en/latest/upgrade-to-mint-20.html

This section may be relevant, if we assume this also applies to drivers:
QuotePPAs or 3rd party repositories can introduce issues during the upgrade if the versions of the packages they provide are higher than in Linux Mint 20. This can result in unmet dependencies, held packages or resolver issues.

I'm on 19.3 myself, but haven't tried to upgrade yet. Everything works well already, and I did see on the Mint forums that some people had issues.

I did read them, but don't see anything useful, that could fix my problem. I had many softwares, that did disappear after upgrade (for example WPS Office). I had to install them again. Maybe disappeared something on what relies ProtonGE. But if so, how can I find out, what is it? Even with 5.0-10 all runs fine and I didn't see any other problems so far.

Try

  • Login to a fresh Linux account

  • Install a new copy of ark for that account

  • Launch



It's the easiest way to check if there is some cruft left behind from old installs in your home/steam dir
