So I recently have downloaded steam on my Linux Mint. So far, the steam client in itself works great, I have little to no problems with it. I also had played killing floor, and that works excellent as well, for the most part, it runs as fast if not a wee bit faster than in my windows partition. There are times where I might get a small hiccup in performance but its rare and nothing major.
But when I try TF2 I get hit with this error:
OpenGL extension "GL_EXT_texture_sRGB_decode" is not supported. Please update your OpenGL driver.
Now, I was able to use this
workaround to fix it, but my frame rate is still horrible. Even when using maxframes [fakkelbrigade.eu]
and resolution at bare minimum. I usually get about 25 until more people show up on my screen, then it drops to about 12 or less. On my windows partition though, I have no problem, I can run it maxed out on the lowest res and it runs perfectly, with no slowdowns or anything.
I have the latest proprietary graphics driver installed on both partitions.
My Graphics Card and Processor (If that even matters): AMD Athlon II 635 Quad-Core
ATI Radeon HD 4200
I was mainly just wondering what I will eventually have to do. Because I know people who don't have to use the workaround who get the same speeds as their windows partition.
Is this an issue that I can wait out that will eventually just get fixed (by whomever)? Or am I just going to have to keep using my windows partition for valve games?
(I really don't wan't to get a new graphics card though, mainly because I'm poor as hell.)
