GLXOSD has been discontinued: https://github.com/nickguletskii/GLXOSD/issues/109

I will be very unlikely to be able to fix problems with games crashing going onwards.

@RX14 I just open the start.sh file. If I want to run it on the Nvidia I use "optirun start.sh".

Trying to see FPS I used "glxosd start.sh".

@joaojotta can you give me the exact command you use to run the game?

joaojotta commented on 2017-12-26 20:14

@RX14 Yes and yes. The game runs just fine. Sad it doesn't work... would you happen to recomend any alternatives? I just need to check FPS during games, nothing else. And not Steam games so... Thanks for the reply!

@joaojotta is the start.sh executable? (chmod +x) Does it run fine using just /PATH/TO/GAME/start.sh? If that's not the problem, I'm not sure what to do.

GLXOSD has been discontinued (see: https://github.com/nickguletskii/GLXOSD/issues/109), so it's just a matter of time until things stop working.

I'm trying to run a GOG game (start.sh file) but I keep getting the error:

/usr/bin/glxosd: line 60 /PATH/TO/GAME/start.sh: No such file or directory

Any tips?

Thanks!!

Doesn't work at all for me. Only works if I use it with glxgears and nothing else.

Alright, so I wanted to update this package bit it seems upstream is pretty broken. After quite a bit of messing around to get the package to build at all, the resulting package doesn't run either. The guy who wrote the software lives on Ubuntu and just hardcoded[1] the path for the libraries.

This is patchable in the PKGBUILD but is likely going to be a mess and should definitely be fixed upstream. I'd have to make a PR for that and make sure nothing else is broken.

If anyone else wants to step in, please do so. I am not using this package right now so I'd be A-OK to transfer the package ownership to someone else.
