Now I'm confused. You mean that I can start a steam game with that command? If so can you explain how? :happy:

So after some research, I found this post. I tested it on The Long Dark and now I can even run it on Ultra quality using:

Code: Select all

LD_PRELOAD="libpthread.so.0 libGL.so.1" __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATIONS=1 optirun %command%
There's also a primusrun option but it doesn't seem to work better for me with this game.
