Steam Linux Performance
I would like to get some feedback on the performance of steam on linux. On my current setup, MainThrd uses around 40-50% cpu while idling. Moving the mouse around on the main steam window causes it to spike to 120% (Ie: using up 1 whole cpu core ++ ).
Scrolling through this forum using the inbuilt browser under the community tab is extremely choppy and stuttery.
Similarly context menus seem quite unresponsive sometimes refusing to acknowledge any mouse over or mouse clicks.
CPU: Core i5 2500k
Graphics: nvidia 470gtx
Distro: Arch Linux with testing repos enabled.
Steam also logs the following to console continuously:
(steam:17095): Gtk-WARNING **: A floating object was finalized. This means that someone
called g_object_unref() on an object that had only a floating
reference; the initial floating reference is not owned by anyone
and must be removed with g_object_ref_sink().
Ideas ? Comparisons ?
