games dont play right

Asked by Clayton Kase on 2011-04-09

Hello, I just recently switched to UBUNTU and I really like it , the only problem I have is when I play the same Linux compatible games now that I have switched from windows. All my graphics are lagged and I am only getting like 2 fps.

Hi -- What games are you trying to run and what version of ubuntu are you trying to run them on? I assume since you switched from windows that you are running your games in wine, have you checked for their compatibility with wine?

I am not even using wine, They are games directly from the Ubuntu app center or like stupid flash games online......

Okay, then it may be a flash player issue if your having issues with flash games, but what games are you using from the app store?

And I am also using the desktop version and i am on a laptop if it makes a difference.........

No, the desktop version won't make a difference. Maybe the proper video driver is not installed. Could you kindly tell us about the games that you're having problem with and the video card you're using.

i installed those 2 games. they seem to be working on my computer. mind you, i don't know how to play flight gear.
how much memory do you have on your graphics card?

Also, what graphics card do you have, and what driver are you using? And what is the make and model (or, if you built it yourself, detailed specifications) of your computer?

Also, please open the Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run:

lspci; lsmod; sudo lshw

You may be asked for your password. When you enter it, not placeholder characters (like *) will appear. That's OK. Just type it in and press enter.

After it's finished running, select all the text in the Terminal (Edit > Select All), copy it to the clipboard (Edit > Copy), and paste it here.

After alot of tweeking I got it

If you're able to tell us specifically what you changed to get it to work, that might help others with similar problems. (But if you're not sure or you don't have time to post about it, then don't sweat it.)

I was running 64 bit on a not 64bit compadable system.........
