GameMode is a background process that on-the-fly modifies various Linux system settings to maximize gaming application performance.
GameMode was designed primarily as a temporary solution to problems with energy-saving Intel and AMD processors or regulators on demand, but now it contains a number of functions and optimization configurations.
In some games, when using it, the FPS increases significantly.
In order to install it, you must run the following commands in the terminal:
Ubuntu, Mint, Debian and other derivatives: sudo apt install meson libsystemd-dev pkg-config ninja-build git libgtk-3-dev libdbus-1-dev
Arch, Manjaro and derivatives: yay -S meson systemd git dbus
Fedora and derivatives: dnf install meson systemd-devel pkg-config git dbus-devel
Gentoo: emerge --ask games-util/gamemode
Build and install (for all distributions):
git clone https://github.com/FeralInteractive/gamemode.git
git checkout 1.5 # omit to build the master branch
By default, the gamemoderun script will be installed in the /usr/bin/ directory
It is necessary to make this script executable:
chmod +x gamemoderun
Now you can start the game and enjoy:
Or, open the game shortcut in the editor and insert the env gamemoderun parameter at the beginning of the Exec line:
Exec=env gamemoderun /path/to/game/your_game
You can also add the option to launch the game on Steam:
