Issue with game, graphics capability

It is possible that Arch or POP_OS have patches in their kernel.
I am honestly at a loss, here.

Thank you for your help :slight_smile:

I will see what should I do next

Yes, I will search based on Ubuntu 20.04 and your AMD graphics card details.

Try installing Mesa Graphic to play FM. I used it to play FM 20 on Zorin 15 a few months ago and it worked. i don't know if this works for Radeon or not. because I don't have a Radeon.

Also, Bourne just pointed out a solution given by Storm not long ago for his Radeon card- maybe it might help you as well:

this is what i have in grub

If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update

/boot/grub/grub.cfg.

For full documentation of the options in this file, see:

info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains

the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD ...)

The resolution used on graphical terminal

note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE

you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'

#GRUB_GFXMODE=1920x1080

Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux

#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true

Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries

#GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true"

Uncomment to get a beep at grub start

#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"

You fixed all issues ?

I am not on Zorin atm, will check soon..

Right now I am on Solus KDE, game is smooth, and I got 4 stars from 5 for graphics capability..

I am really curious what is the main reason for that ? I was so optimistic about Zorin, really wanted to stay on it

Makes two of us. I do not game so much, so I lack the proper experience to really help you. I bet that the solution is out there and easier than we may fear...

Yeah..maybe someone here more experienced ? I don't want to contact devs for this, because not sure is it Zorin or Ubuntu issue

Maybe I am wrong with problem here but if o know what model graphic cards it is then I can research on some websides to find best solution what working for another people. I also would know if this is a laptop or PC.

All help is appreciated:
AMD Ryzen 5 3500U with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx

I cannot recall if the O.P. is using notebook or tower PC, though.

Then I understand this is SoC processor where graphic card is integrated.

Hi guys,

I am back. Thanks for your support. I tried those but no luck.
Asked on Telegram Zorin group for help, and got this :slight_smile:

Needed to add this repo :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kisak/kisak-mesa
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
I updated to latest kernel also.

And now I have 3 from 5 stars :slight_smile: more than enough :slight_smile:
