How to setup Linux for gaming like Windows?.

Gaming is growing fast as crazy nowadays, but not everyone can afford a high-end system. While everyone is complaining about windows is consuming a lot of resources, what about playing the game on Linux?. Do even games run on Linux?. Why should I switch to Linux for gaming?. You will get all the answers in this article. I will show you the step by step installation guide to start gaming. Let's go.

The first and main reason to switch to Linux is getting a windows licensed version is too much costly. A middle-class person can get one graphics card in that money to play games. So, why waste money on that. The second thing is Linux is free and the community is working so much to make the Linux system better. Linux is not like the old days, It has become so much better than you even expect.

There are many specific Linux distros are available especially for gaming. For example Pop OS, or Manjaro OS. Let's look at Pop os first. 

POP OS for gaming

So, the Pop os is based on ubuntu. It is very basic to use. You may be already familiar with Ubuntu Linux from the school. So, it is not a big deal.  Even if you know nothing about still this is a good choice because it is so simple, and easy to use.

You just need to download it with Nvidia drivers so you don't have to worry about that later. then go to pop OS shop which is like a play store where you download apps for your mobile phone, same as that. Download steam and you are good to go. 

If you are a total beginner and you know nothing about Linux,then I would recommend going with Pop OS. Because, you won't find something simpler than this.

Manjaro OS for gaming, and how to setup it for gaming?

Now, if you want to go with Manjaro os which is arch-based OS, it may be difficult for newbies. It is so much powerful, and both are super good, but both have their own advantages, and disadvantages. So, you can go with any of them. 

Manjaro OS comes with pre-installed steam, and you won't believe they had done so much work for making it comfortable for gamers. You simply don't need to change anything, or do any geeky stuff. You just need to install the correct drivers for your graphics card, and you are good to go.

How to install drivers in Manjaro OS?

1. Install yay using pacman

2. Update your system using yay

3.  Search for dxvk lutris

4.  Then add wine dependencies using terminal

5. Then open Installing drivers link

6. Choose your driver whether it is Nvidia or AMD

After successful installation of the graphics driver, restart the computer and you are good to go.

What is Lutris, and how to install it on Manjaro to play games?

It is not necessary to play games only from steam in Manjaro, if your game is not available on your steam, and you downloaded it from another website then you can run your game on Lutris. Lutris is the same as steam, it provides you the platform to play games. You can manually install any games you want to play on Lutris. You can install Lutris like this:

Lutris is available for both Pop os and Manjaro so you don't have to worry about it. Both OS are very optimized and it will give you way better performance than windows. Which one you feel comfortable with, you can go with any of them.
