Summary Hello my fellow penguins! This guide will show you how to set up a Skyrim modding environment for the original “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” on Linux, using a modified Steam Proton run script. 🔥 Please note, that this guide IS NOT for “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition” - it’s for the older “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” or “Legendary Edition”. If you are looking to play with “ModOrganizer 2” and “TESV: Skyrim Special Edition”, there is a Lutris installer here.
For those of you who know about the virtual content I love to create, you can no doubt imagine that this game was an instant buy for me. I’ve played a few games on Steam this week, but this one was probably the most visually and audibly pleasing. It really is a refreshing treat for the senses, and it’s one of those games that makes you feel a little better about life after playing it.
Below is a list of my favourite Linux and technology related YouTube channels. This isn’t an exhaustive list of all the content I watch. Simply, a list of the ones I personally frequent on a regular basis. Hopefully this will be a good introduction for those curious about the Linux and the technology community. If you have any favourites of your own, and you’d like me to list them below, send me an email and I’ll check them out.
New users to Linux may find it a bit “fiddly” getting Second Life up and running. So, in this guide I’ll quickly show you how to install the Firestorm client to access Second Life. The Linux distro I use is Manjaro Xfce 20.0.3, which is a Arch based distro. However, the steps below should work on other Linux distros like Ubuntu, Linux Mint or Pop!_OS 📝 Ensure you have your Linux graphics drivers up to date and installed correctly before following the steps below.
Introduction I’ve seen lots of Linux gamers online having issues trying to get this game to run. So, today I thought I’d install “Linux Mint MATE 19.2” from a fresh install, and see if I could get “Elite Dangerous” running on it. I documented my steps along the way. Hopefully this will help others wanting to play “Elite Dangerous” after running “Linux Mint MATE 19.2” from a fresh install. Here’s how it went.
No Geforce Experience?! Windows gamers will be familiar with “NVIDIA Geforce Experience”, and its ability to allow you to record the last 30 seconds of gameplay as a video file to the hard drive. Annoyingly however, for us Linux gamers, even though NVIDIA supports Linux with its proprietary binary graphics drivers - they haven’t made a Linux version of Geforce Experience. Enter OBS To Save The Day! Thankfully, with “OBS Studio”, we can use its “Replay Buffer” feature, which can act in much the same way.
