Question Help me with setup, and getting low end windows games running on BodHi


Hi there... I made a post a while ago about "PlayOnLinux" I thought I would make a new thread to encompass other methods and with luck get this all working.

So after everyone saying that no one uses PlayOnLinunx any more I tried something I found on google called "Lutris. I followed the extensive Wiki to get it working as well as Steam for Linux + something called "Proton".

Anyway, after doing it all, nothing would work. Not a single game I tried would run and I couldn't work out what Lutris even was. As it "seemed" that you just loaded the steam app and then installed the windows games there and ran them from there.. so what was lutris for then?

Anyway.. I have done a FRESH install and thought I would go through it step by step with yu good people that have been so helpful in my migration to linux.

I'm going to be verbose so with luck anyone interested in helping is able to!

After Fresh Install

I install the "standard" version of BodHi.iso off the USB, using the "erase" option.

On first boot I run these commands.

> sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade -y
> reboot
> sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y
> reboot

After I do the initial update I installed some minimal stuff. TouchPad-Indicator so I can type without pressing the touchpad and firefox.

> lspci -vv

I run this to see what video card I have.... I get two results with VGA in it...

Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 5906 (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

Now I am playing around on a Yoga 530-14IKB Laptop (ideapad) - Type 81EK

So I guess my first question is ... why is there two VGA entries... and I am "68% sure I have a nvida chipset....

I guess what I am getting at is that i imagine the first thing I need to do is install video drivers... I THINK it is Nvidia.. but how can I find out?

What I did last time was install nvidia drivers....

> sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
> sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
> sudo apt update
> sudo apt install nvidia-driver-440 libnvidia-gl-440 libnvidia-gl-440:i386
> sudo apt install libvulkan1 libvulkan1:i386
> reboot

I got these instructions from.. https://github.com/lutris/docs/blob/...lingDrivers.md

So... yeah... any of this making sense?

I found this site here...

Lenovo Yoga 530-14IKB-81EK00WEGE @ NoteBook Check
| NVIDIA GeForce MX130 @ NoteBook Check

This lead me to Linux Display Driver - x86 @Nvidia.com and the download is a ".run" that BodHi opens as a text file.

I hope this helps!

< EDIT >

> sudo chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86-384.111.run
> sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-384.111.run

did not work.

Code:
ERROR: this .run file is intended for the
Linux-x86 platform, but you appear to be
running on Linux-x86_64.  Aborting installation.

Here is the x64 version of that same driver .run from nvidia

if your first goal is to try and find an appropriate nvidia driver, i would suggest installing the mintupdate package (sudo apt install mintupdate) which installs (among other things) a program called Additional Drivers that should be able to help. though that second entry from lspci definitely isn't identified as nvidia so it seems like your install might have mislabeled the device.

it may also help if threads can contain a single question like "how can i install nvidia drivers for my system" instead of the very broad topic of "get games to work". my unsolicited try doing things piece by piece if you can.

yeah I get that... but I didn't think spamming 500 threads would be cool either. I thought if I just kept posting in this one thread through the entire process would be the way to go?

of course in the end that is totally your call to make and i get the part about not wanting to spam. thus the idea of taking it one piece at a time

my experience in the past is that if people take a look at the first few posts and don't have anything to add, they rarely return later to see if there is something else that they might be able to help with.

to install nvidia drivers 340 or later

Code:
sudo ubuntu-drivers install
that get you the latest that works.

you previously mentioned:
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
and if you do that first you may get something slightly newer.

I think it turns out I do not have a nvidia compatible GPU at all. I mean all the specs say it is.. but I just couldn't get it to work. I guy on reddit told me to use this PPA

https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archiv...aphics-drivers
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
sudo apt-get update
I also installed the MintUpdater to get access to the app "Additional Drivers"
Code:
sudo apt install mintupdate
I then installed steam, set it to use the beta, and then enabled Proton... I could then install Through the Ages and run it as long as I used the 4.4 version. As Through the Ages is the only app at the moment I want to play right now, I am stopping here... but still have no idea what to do if I want to play a adventure game or something. I didn't install any wine or any other thing.

I think I might look into a android emulator to play android games.. maybe that would be easier than trying to get windows games working.
