GNU/Linux Gaming on Reddit

Public description

A subreddit for gaming on the GNU/Linux operating system.#### Description


  • /r/Linux_Gaming is for informative and interesting gaming content, news and discussions. It is not (primarily) a tech-support forum.

  • Tech-support requests posted outside the Weekly Tech-Support Thread should be of general interest. Include relevant details like logs, terminal output, system information. What exactly did you do, and how, and with what version of what? How have you tried to troubleshoot the problem? Vague, low-effort tech-support requests may get removed. This wiki page can help you gather system information.

  • You can now flair your own posts. Please mark your "standalone" tech-support requests as tech support and re-flair them as answered! if an answer has been found (even if it was "this can't be done").

  • Respect other users. Heated discussions are fine, unwarranted insults are not. Remember you are talking to another human being.

  • Devs and content producers. If you've ported your game to Linux or created some GNU/Linux-gaming-related content (reviews, videos, articles) then, so long as you're willing to engage with the community, please post it here. If it's a link post, think about writing a comment to tell us more - the more you engage with us, the more we like it. We all need to support each other to help GNU/Linux gaming grow.

  • Spam will be deleted. This means things like repetitious posting of similar content, low-effort posts/memes and misleading/exaggerated titles on link posts. We know spam when we see it and will delete it.
