gaming tweaks

Hi all,
Ok so I have steam install on my current 12.3 suse KDE desktop.
Im have trouble getting as much kills in game then on windows… idk why but
Gaming feels different on a linux system.
Are there any adjustments that relate to tweaking my system to improve accuracy and smoother performance.
Yes I have latest nvidia drivers, good rates, and game options covered as well.

I’m not a gamer, and don’t use steam at all. I would however suggest that any issues you’re facing would probably have a better chance of being resolved via a steam forum, as they’re unlikely to be openSUSE-specific issues IMO:

ok ty.
Is there a way to adjust your mouse DPI settings in suse?
you know like configuring your mouse settings so that its similar to windows…
microsoft basic optical mouse drivers for linux

You could use the xset command to adjust acceleration and threshhold (sensitivity) eg

xset m10 10
xset m 2 10
xset m default

For more info

man xset

mouse The m option controls the mouse parameters; it may be abbreviated to ‘m’. Of course,
it applies to most pointing devices, not just mice. The parameters for the pointing
device are acceleration' and threshold’. The acceleration can be specified as an
integer, or as a simple fraction. Threshold is just an integer. The setting is
applied to all connected pointing devices. xinput(1) should be used if you need
device-specific settings.

   By default the pointer (the on-screen representation of the pointing device) will go  `accel-
   eration'  times  as fast when the device travels more than `threshold' mickeys (i.e. would-be
   pixels) in 10 ms, including a small transition range. This way, the pointing  device  can  be
   used  for  precise  alignment when it is moved slowly, yet it can be set to travel across the
   screen in a flick of the wrist when desired.  One or both parameters for the m option can  be
   omitted, but if only one is given, it will be interpreted as the acceleration.  If no parame-
   ters or the flag 'default' is used, the system defaults will be set.
   If the `threshold' parameter is provided and 0, the `acceleration' parameter will be used  in
   the exponent of a more natural and continuous formula, giving precise control for slow motion
   but big reach for fast motion, and a progressive transition for motions in  between.   Recom-
   mended `acceleration' value in this case is 3/2 to 3, but not limited to that range.

Changes made by xset are not persistent, (although you could execute as a startup script of similar if desired). There are Xorg options available that can be added for persistent behaviour.

my system doesnt have these consoles to run the commands.
how can I install xset and Xorg on my linux system?:\

is Xorg a set of commands or is it something else?
I dont have this installed in my comp…

I gave you a CLI method using xset (part of the xset package). This has an instantaneous effect, but does not survive a reboot (or restart of the X-server). My brief comments about Xorg related to manual creation/editing of config a file in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory. I’ll leave it to you to research further.

I have also noticed a slightly different “feeling” when playing Source on Linux. After a while you do not notice and it feels “normal”. If you are talking about stuttering and stuff like that then that would be different. Would not matter which Distro you use it generally comes down to drivers for Linux in general (Nvidia, ATI, etc). I have found Opensuse to be a BIG surprise and I am enjoying Source smoothly and looking fine. I do not have a gaming rig by any stretch but it is enough to play CS:S very well.

Chees and best of luck!

Brilliant game i like it. Very nice
