    Anyone playing dota on linux still?

    Just curious what Distros you're using and how it's working out. I'm considering using linux again. But I'm not going to dive in I'm going to stick my toe in first and test the waters. I have to do lots of stuff to get a linux enviroment set to where I'm happy like turning mouse acceleration off is always a big one... >.>...

    Neways how is it?

    I'm playing L4D2 and Dota 2 at Linux Mint 16 KDE. Only difference in Windows and Linux is antialiasing... In Windows you get sharp graphics but in Linux is everything blurred antialiazing as in early versions of Windows Dota.

    Framerate with Nvidia GTX 660 is same in both systems - 120 FPS cap.
    In Linux I have Nvidia drivers "nvidia-331" from PPA Xorg-edgers: http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/xorg-edgers

    Archlinux here.

    Everything OK. Only problem is that i cannot have two monitors activated if SLI is activated too.

    The rest is all ok.

    Europa Universalis 4 works great too and all the games that I have tested worked really good.

    Never heard of manjaro before but since it's apparently mostly Arch I doubt you're facing anything unsolvable. We can't tell you much without any details. You may want to create your own thread though.
