Hi! Before I tell about my problem, I just want to say I am very new to linux, and I know you probably get many questions like this, so sorry.
Anyway! Because my pc has been running quite slowly on windows lately, I decided to swap it out for linux. So far, it has actually been running great! I ran into a few problems with cinnamon de, mostly mouse related (couldn’t turn mouse accell off, doing so made mouse very slow) so I switched to xfce. Now, I do have it all setup, and it seems to be working alright. I installed my nvidia gpu drivers, and also vulkan, but still I seem to find a few problems. When I boot up, my pc seems to run quite slowly, and does so until I log out and then in. Earlier on cinnamon it actually gave me a warning about hardware acceleration, which was also fixed by logging out and then back in. I wonder if any of you know what could be causing this?
Now for the gaming problems!
So, I really only play 2 games, world of warcraft and csgo. Now steam was very straightforward, and easy to work with, almost as plug and play as windows. I just installed the package, started steam, and installed csgo (hopefully that’s about right?). Now, the real problem for me has been getting wow to work. From what I understand, I first need to get wine, and then get lutris to launch games from. I did find a guide, but unfortunately it didn’t help me much. When I tried to install the blizzard app it gave me like some semi stub thing, I honestly didn’t really understand (should have screenshot it), and so I gave up. I have had a look at the gaming tutorial on this forum, but I don’t really understand how to create the bash scripts like create-structure.sh for when I have to install wine, and I honestly don’t want to mess up again. I am on a clean install, and any help/guide on how to install world of warcraft using wine and lutris, would be greatly appreciated as it’s the only game I really play a lot.
Thanks for taking the time to read, and potentially help me understand how to make all of this work! I know this isn’t very well written, and if you need any specific info to help me just ask!
