Ok I’m going to install Steam to play Hearts of Iron, my question is will vulkan-intel 21.1.0-1 give me better acceleration for games? I’m just using default kernel driver, i uninstalled xf86-video-intel. Everything is running smoothly, but I’m well aware that game require more juice lol. Thanks!
I’m using a Intel i7-10700 with the Intel UHD 630
Edit:Steam requires vulkan-driver.
I think you wouldn’t be very successful playing the game without it. When you aren’t playing the game it isn’t being used.
I’m going to install it and see what happens.
I wonder if you need anything else to go along with it? There are other vulkan packages such as vulkan-tools. I’m not a gamer so probably
@keybreak could give you some more advice. Or someone else?
I have no direct experience with Intel, however as always we can go to
, and see Intel part Requirements section
Don’t forget to install other stuff, like Vulkan itself.
Other than that, you should be fine as long as
dxvk works, and by default it should be
3. Install Vulkan
4. Install Vulkan driver for your GPU driver
Yes, no worries all modern hardware supports it, it’s mainly for an old ones
Aah I thought i didn’t need
Because there was no -intel after it lol.
vulkan-icd-loader - To my surprise was already installed
sudo pacman -S lib32-vulkan-icd-loader - I get error: target not found: lib32-vulkan-icd-loader
sudo pacman -S lib32-vulkan-intel - error: target not found: lib32-vulkan-intel
“There is a lib32-vulkan-intel-noglvnd 18.3.2-1 in the AUR though”
Everything else went fine though.
It is weird, i have those in repos
Do you have multilib enabled?
multilib um… probably not…
Should be uncommented here, then
sudo pacman -Syyuu
AAAAAAH, thats much better.
Now to reboot.
Everything seems ok on reboot, now ot mess with Steam later today. Thanks
