If you don’t know me yet I’m TAC_Tux and I may only be 15 but i have been programing and using linux for quit some time…after my resent switch to Antergos Arch Linux i had truly fallen in love with Arch and how the classic freedom feeling of linux felt even free-er and had no limits…but like i said i’m 15 and what teenage boy doesn’t love video games. I have recently installed Steam+Bumblebee and i have used SteamOS+Linux to play games for awhile but not yet on Arch…and it was amazing…this was absolutely the smoothest and best quality PC gaming i have ever done…the lightning quick speed of Arch really makes gaming great plus there are tuns of free Linux games on steam and you can now run non steam games through steam for a better feel. Once again my deep love for Arch linux grows and now i shall only use arch linux. I just though it would be helpful to put the link to the video where i learned how to install Steam plus my modified notes from what the guy on youtube had in his description as his notes were not correct…my notes may seem long but this process is short and stupid easy.
Heres the link to the video
[Arch Linux] How to install Steam + Bumblebee with the latest Nvidia [email protected]
here are my modified notes
*Enable the multilib repository if you are running a 64bit machine.
Steam is 32bit so you need the 32bit libs in order to run all 32bit apps and games.
sudo nano /etc/pacman.conf
(uncomment multilib and the line just below it by removing the # then save to enable multilib)
**you will see this…remove the #'s…only on these two lines **
**now you should see this **
go ahead an click file and save to set these changes in stone
**now we need to run the following command line to update your repositories…doing this will officially add multilib to your system **
sudo pacman -Syy
time to install steam
sudo pacman -S steam
now install bumblebee with the Nvidia proprietary driver + all their dependencies and 32bit libs.
sudo pacman -S bumblebee bbswitch primus lib32-primus intel-dri xf86-video-intel nvidia nvidia-utils lib32-nvidia-utils lib32-intel-dri
check bumblebee config and make sure Bridge=primus, Driver=nvidia, if not make that so
sudo nano /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf
now you need to enable bumblebee !!!WARNING DONT LEAVE OUT THE [d] AT THE END OR IT WONT WORK!!!
sudo systemctl enable bumblebeed
now reboot your system and enjoy amazing gaming
