About me



  1. The game will launch and run with no launch parameters under proton (ie. proton experimental or Glorious Eggroll), but performance is abysmal (even after patch). If you add certain launch parameters, you can get the performance to a pretty decent (i.e. near Windows) state. Launch parameters: PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1 PROTON_HIDE_NVIDIA_GPU=1 PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 However, the use of `PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1` introduces a bug where there is an semi-transparent ground layer above the runway, which planes crash into and explode when you reach a certain height off the ground. I understand Linux is not a priority right now, but there's a decent subset of us who prefer to run Linux and would love to not have to boot into Windows to play. For reference, protondb entry is here: https://www.protondb.com/app/954850
  2. Microsoft or Apple (or Linux)? Which do you prefer?
  3. ANSWER: Ensure Keyboard Layout matches your physical keyboard from KSP1.4 onwards (ie, 101-key, 105-key, etc) UPDATED ANSWER: Ensure you only have a single keyboard layout available! Having multiple layouts (eg, to switch between different languages) breaks KSP1.4 onwards. ---- So I re-downloaded a brand-new fresh install of KSP 1.4.3 for Linux using Steam. No changes to settings, no mods. Double checked and the keyboard layout matches my OS layout; changing this has no effect. No errors in the log file. Debian GNU/Linux 9 with KDE desktop. Launch the game, start a new stock game, create the first basic rocket, launch it, and in flight-mode, none of the standard keyboard keys (ie, letters) work. Ditto in the Editor; none of the "letter" shortcut keys work. The number keys and the control keys DO work (Shift/Ctrl to adjust throttle, R-Shift F12 to open Debug menu, ESC to pause, etc). In other parts of the game, the keyboard works normally: Settings - keyboard configuration; I can change the bindings (eg, Full-throttle from Z to F) VAB - naming a ship; I can type in a new name. Debug menu (in flight mode); I can type into the log input box. So it looks like something is blocking the controls in flight mode/VAB/etc. And no, there's no input locks active. KSP1.3.1 works fine. Any ideas?
  4. Now that the situation with Linux gaming will change by the time KSP2 releases(Major handheld console running desktop Linux), will you(Intercept Games/Private Division) be making a Linux port or testing on Proton?
  5. I'm on a new install of Xubuntu and the textures of the components does not seem to be what it should be, various part textures are blurry, such as the image below. Does anyone have any idea why the textures are like this? Texture resolution in the game settings is full res, the rest of the settings are high, I have deleted the settings.cfg multiple times and it made no difference. I have try reinstalling and verifying the game cache, is this just a Linux thing?
  6. Hi, Im wondering if I can install ksp on kali (i need steam) becouse kali is a debian baced and practicly a skin of ubuntu with some different tools. Im trying this tonight so i will post my result here. Thanks, Mine 36
  7. So I'm running KSP 1.9 on Linux, no mods. Start a game, make a rover, and drive Jeb out to the KSC monolith. Have him stand by the long monolith side with the Squad logo, the side that's facing KSC. The monolith will slowly rotate with the planet away from him. You can see the surface texture move with the monolith. If you turn on any time warp, it stops. Is this just me? Edit: if you move him to the short side facing the mountains, it's even more obvious.
  8. Current version: 2.5.1 License - GPLv3+ Description Based upon known launch options of the Kerbal Space Program, I have created a small bash script. It is configured directly by changing the options inside the script. Each line is commented, and if the script is run with any parameter - it will also spill the help. It is not a GUI application on purpose - so it can be chain-launched from existing launchers (.desktop file, Steam, GOG Galaxy etc). How to install: Scroll down to the link, save and paste contents into new file, rename it to "KSP_launcher.sh" and make it executable; Place this file in same directory with KSP binary; Edit it with text editor and adjust options; (Option) Integrate it into your launcher (.desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications, or other launcher) so it runs this script instead of KSP (Option) If you use GOG offline installer, in "start.sh" replace strings "KSP.x86_64" and "KSP.x86", with "KSP_launcher.sh" Run For console help: run the script with some parameter ("./KSP_launcher --help" or similar) How to modify settings: edit the script, change the variable values, save. What script currently allows: - force LC_C to fix disappearing saves/forgetting settings - automatically rotate it with compression or disable KSP logfile completely - turn vsync on/off (both nvidia and mesa/opensource radeon or intel) - force fullscreen or any video resolution - specify opengl / gles level - change R600_DEBUG variable - change Mesa options - start gallium benchmark mode to display fps - protect KSP from shutdown if it asks for too much RAM at once (if you run many mods) - properly waits for KSP to end for cleanup, even if it segfaults - integrated help and options documented inside script - debug mode that shows options it would run some options were deprecated as no longer applicable. Current version: https://pastebin.com/CeVvvdpT previous version (2.5): https://pastebin.com/GVexVATS previous version (2.4): https://pastebin.com/dw1B8fDk previous version (2.2): https://pastebin.com/ctpp53Bd previous version (2.0): https://pastebin.com/2vwj6szQ Warning if you use the "download" button on pastebin.com, instead of copy-pasting raw contents into new text file, then you may encounter the error: "/bin/bash^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory" To fix it, open this script in text editor and change the line end encodings from Windows to Unix. This done by "pastebin.com", I have no control over this. Heads up of the Linux problems I am aware of, being Linux player myself: - KSP runs hot on GPU Use either nvidia settings panel (for proprietary Nvidia) or radeon profile tool (for AMD, ubuntu PPA) to limit the performance mode of the GPU. In case of Radeon, switch it to manual and low. From my observations, only simulations in atmosphere require a lot of GPU. In VAB/SPH the GPU is perfectly fine in manual low-power mode, consuming 10-20% energy and running cool. Since KSP supports window switching (alt-tab), you can easily adjust performance as you need it. - KSP does not remember settings and always starts in window mode This stopped happening in Linux (for me), but it doesn't seem to be fixed globally. Unity uses comma delimiter set by locale and some locales have "," instead of "." This leads to the problem and solution is to force en_US through LC_ALL=C. This does not prevent using different keyboard layout and does not interfere with game localization. Solution: KSP_unity_forceLC="on", which is default in my script - KSP starts with window of weird size This stopped happening in Linux (for me, since 1.2), but it doesn't seem to be fixed globally. This is because Unity fails to get screen size from window manager. Solution: KSP_ksp_cleanprefs="on" which is default and will remove Unity's "prefs", and you can force the settings for one launch with KSP_unity_forceX, KSP_unity_forceY, KSP_unity_fullscreen variables. - KSP sometimes at loading crashes Xorg session, booting to login Solution: KSP_ksp_protect="on" , which is default in my script - KSP starts with black screen, noticed in Mesa 11 (fixed) Solution: KSP_unity_glcore to "on" or "33" (or higher value, if your GL library supports it) - Bop and Minmus have terrain glitches, noticed in Mesa 12 (fixed) Solution: KSP_unity_glcore to "on" or "41" - RasterPropMonitor shows has pink lines instead of IVA panels (fixed) This is result of having "glcore" enabled, as it breaks the shaders. Here is the bug report. - KSP sometimes crashes I read about this bug being present on Intel opensource drivers. To solve, disable antialiasing in KSP settings. - VAB/SPH floor markers are weird (fixed) (gradient - AMD, covered in flickering noise - Nvidia). This is connected with shader rendering and OpenGL library in the system. On AMD / Mesa 17, the system also freezes at random time and its connected with issue below. On AMD / Catalyst(depricated driver), its reported to be fixed by disabling PPFX edge shaders in settings. On Nvidia (proprietary driver), is reported to happen with driver 378.13 and later. Its possible to workaround this issue by installing Hangar Extender mod. - KSP freezes the system completely (fixed) Freeze happens at random point. The freeze happens earlier, if there are Mods that require a lot of GPU work. After many attempts I have traced this issue to Mesa 17+. Solution: If you have OIBAF or PADOKA Mesa installed, try removing them and downgrading to "hwe" Mesa. This is likely DRI3 issue, but no option I know helped, its somewhere in the Mesa userspace stack. Upgrading kernel does not help. If this interests anyone, I am using x64 Kernel 5.x and NixOS. For driver, I use opensource radeon driver, running with R9 280 (still!). Enjoy!!
  9. Hi everyone, I know that this question has already been asked for Windows users, but I know how to download older version of the game on windows, both with Steam and the launcher of Galaxy of Gaming. The problem is that on Linux there is no Launcher for GoG and on the website I have not managed to download the 1.7.3. (I like to play RP-1) I could do it on Steam, but on steam I do not own the extensions. I tried with Lutris, and the website. No luck so far. I asked this question on the Lutris forum last week, no answer. I just asked this question on the customer support of GoG, and still no answer. I have the feeling that this forum might be my best chance. Thanks.
  10. I've installed KSP in my, now main OS, Manjaro. With the vanilla game i had no problem, but after installing a couple mods, around 20, the frames in the VAB drop to around 3-5 per second. The problem is that in game, with a 120 plus parts the game runs absolutely smooth. Any suggestions?
  11. Hello everybody! I am very excited to update to the new release, but it is running at around 5 frames per second anywhere other than the main menu. The menu is perfectly smooth. I have tried to set the graphics to lower settings, but that didn't improve the situation. My computer is an Ubuntu Laptop that isn't a gaming machine by any means and has pitiful memory, but it runs 1.7.3 fine. I bought the game through Steam if that helps. I did a clean install, but the behavior persists. I already looked through the KSP.log file, but I didn't see anything unusual. I saved a copy of the file if anyone wants to look at it. Thanks for looking!
  12. Hi I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 with the GOG version of KSP, and when I launch the game I immediately get a black screen and the cursor followed by a crash to desktop. This is a fresh install with all the dlc and no mods. Here is a link to my log file, Player.log
  13. I'm currently running Pop! OS Linux distro, and I was wondering as to how I would be able to install KSP. My main problem, is that I have the GOG Galaxy version of the game, I have tried using Lutris to install the game, but each time I get an error saying "Error("Destination path '/home/name/.cache/lutris/installer/kerbal-space-program/unzip' already exists",)" I have obviously checked this each time before installing and its not there. In case its of any help: I have ensured that Lutris has read and write permissions
  14. Since Linux gamers do not get update scripts but have to DL whole client when updating to newer version i suggest that updated version would come with a script, that optionally can be run, that asks are there older version from which to import settings, saves and mods. On the other hand since some updates may break mods, these selections should all be selectable separetly... not forgetting those awesome screenshots!
  15. so i'm only really making a return because i have an ion-powered craft with burn times ~1 hour, but i can't enable physics warp for some reason. everyone says to do alt + . but it doesn't work for me for some reason. maybe because i'm on linux? i really don't know. (sorry if this is in the wrong place, only ~85% sure it should go here but i'm kinda desperate so :/)
  16. I was wondering what distro other forum users have installed if you dual boot with windows that does not count as a dual boot in this quiz also if you use another distro please explain which one
  17. As the title says.... Is v1.6 for Linux actually released? I play on two different computers, one Windows, one Linux. The Window system got the update to 1.6 first, there were some complaints about mk2 Lander but it all worked out in the end. Later that same day I went to play on my Linux system and I *thought* I had update dialog telling me about 1.6, doing upgrade, etc. I played, got the same warning about the lander and some other parts but it worked. Then trying to play again the next day I get incompatible save errors and it won't load. I started investigating this thinking the save had been corrupted only to realize I'm still playing 1.5.1 Now I'm wondering, did I imagine my Linux system updating? Did it revert? Is it even out?
  18. I"m in need of some help installing making history add-on. I"m running Linux mint on a Quad core Asus motherboard I built. the basic program runs great, so i decided to buy the Making history Add-on. I"ve unzipped the files to a folder on my desktop. But the instructions tell me to run a script called dlc-mhe-[lang]. command. I"ve got no clue how to run this in the Command terminal. after i open the terminal I get this:( [email protected]:~$ ) can anyone with some linux experience help me out? Thanks for any help Ray Gott
  19. I've installed the game and the Making History expansion through Steam running on Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic). With the expansion installed, the game no longer runs. Sometimes it crashes before it can load the main menu. Sometimes it crashes or freezes at the main menu. The farthest I've ever made it was to click through to the Making History select-a-mission screen, at which point the game froze. If I uninstall the expansion, the base game still works fine. Is anyone else seeing this behavior? Anyone come up with a workaround?
  20. I am running Darkmultiplayer on KSP 1.4.3 (direct download) on linux. The first time I start a fresh ksp with fresh DMP I get an incompatible mods detected message and A message with terms of service of darkmultiplayer. Darkmultiplayer works just fine the first time I start KSP. the second time I start KSP the incompatible mods message is still there but there is no DarkMultiPlayer window. It is pretty annoying to have to install KSP and DMP again everytime I want to play on my DMP server so I was wondering if anybody knew a solution I am running arch on Linux 4.14.36-1-lts.
  21. I am dependent on an external DLL to perform some functionality for my plugin. To do this I use P/Invoke's DllImport and it works all fine on Windows. When on Linux/OSX, however, a DllNotFoundException is thrown. (I am using dedicated mac/linux libs when appropriate) [EXC 13:45:27.864] DllNotFoundException: osx/discord-rpc.bin DiscordRP.Discord.OSXInvoker.Initialize (System.String applicationId, .EventHandlers& handlers, Boolean autoRegister, System.String optionalSteamId) DiscordRpc.Initialize (System.String applicationId, .EventHandlers& handlers, Boolean autoRegister, System.String optionalSteamId) DiscordRP.Discord.PresenceController.Initialize () DiscordRP.DiscordRPMod.Start () The file definitely exists, so this error can only mean some other issue occurred while loading was attempted. Windows imports: https://github.com/gegy1000/KSP-DiscordRP/blob/master/DiscordRP/Discord/Win64Invoker.cs#L33-L46 OSX imports: https://github.com/gegy1000/KSP-DiscordRP/blob/master/DiscordRP/Discord/OSXInvoker.cs#L33-L46 Used library files: https://github.com/discordapp/discord-rpc/releases/tag/v2.1.1 I'm quite lost as to what's going on here -- so any help would be appreciated!
  22. I have installed 1.4.1 and the DLC as instructed in the ReadMe file. I can access Missions and Mission Builder in game but I cannot see any of the new parts and when I try to start a mission that uses the new KV-series pods I get an error message saying the files cannot be found. I looked for the files and found them but Squad has changed the folder organization in the DLC and it no longer resembles the vanilla install folders. Unfortunately I cannot make any changes to the DLC folders as they are write protected. This is frustrating because I have the files on my computer but cannot figure out how to get the game to see them...
  23. Hi All, First for the required info: KSP Version: I'm running in Linux Mint 18.3 (64 bit), and the game is running via steam; From BuildID.txt: 02077; From readme.txt: 1.4.0; Detailed explanation of what happens: I run the game and i get a VERY brief window which closes immediately, this is with both the 32 and 64 bit versions, reverting to v1.3.1Ican play no problem. No need for screenshots or save files as the game doesn't run Player.log: System specs: I run a Lenovo L512 laptop; Chipset: core i5 430M; Graphics: Integrated Intel HD (inex reports it as "Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ironlake Mobile"); RAM: 4GB; HDD: 512GB SSD (Samsung Evo); Clean Install, no mods Generally I assume my machine is too old now and cannot support the minimum level of OpenGL required for 1.4?? It works no problem on 1.3.1 which I can revert to in steam (for now atleast). Is there any way around this at all? I think it might work if I run Win7 but I prefer Linux really. Is there anything I can do here or am I destined to run no later than 1.3.1 on this machine, it s shame as I was just getting into a decent career with it! Cheers All.
  24. I just installed 64 bit arch linux and ksp 1.3.1 64 bit works but for some reason I always get wierd physics lag spikes in 64 bit ksp on windows and every linux distro that I have tried. 32 bit ksp worked fine on ubuntu but I recently switched to arch and when I try running KSP.x86 now I get Searching for joysticks with GUID 05000000362800000100000003010000 Parsing config 030000008916000001fd000024010000,Razer Onza Classic Edition,platform:Linux,x:b2,a:b0,b:b1,y:b3,back:b6,guide:b8,start:b7,dpleft:b11,dpdown:b14,dpright:b12,dpup:b13,leftshoulder:b4,lefttrigger:a2,rightshoulder:b5,righttrigger:a5,leftstick:b9,rightstick:b10,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightx:a3,righty:a4, Searching for joysticks with GUID 030000008916000001fd000024010000 Parsing config 030000005e040000d102000001010000,Microsoft X-Box One pad,platform:Linux,x:b2,a:b0,b:b1,y:b3,back:b6,guide:b8,start:b7,dpleft:h0.8,dpdown:h0.0,dpdown:h0.4,dpright:h0.0,dpright:h0.2,dpup:h0.0,dpup:h0.1,leftshoulder:h0.0,leftshoulder:b4,lefttrigger:a2,rightshoulder:b5,righttrigger:a5,leftstick:b9,rightstick:b10,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightx:a3,righty:a4, Searching for joysticks with GUID 030000005e040000d102000001010000 Parsing config 03000000790000001100000010010000,RetroLink Saturn Classic Controller,platform:Linux,x:b3,a:b0,b:b1,y:b4,back:b5,guide:b2,start:b8,leftshoulder:b6,rightshoulder:b7,leftx:a0,lefty:a1, Searching for joysticks with GUID 03000000790000001100000010010000 Parsing config 050000007e0500003003000001000000,Nintendo Wii U Pro Controller,platform:Linux,a:b0,b:b1,x:b3,y:b2,back:b8,start:b9,guide:b10,leftshoulder:b4,rightshoulder:b5,leftstick:b11,rightstick:b12,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightx:a2,righty:a3,lefttrigger:b6,righttrigger:b7,dpup:b13,dpleft:b15,dpdown:b14,dpright:b16, Searching for joysticks with GUID 050000007e0500003003000001000000 Parsing config 030000005e0400008e02000004010000,Microsoft X-Box 360 pad,platform:Linux,a:b0,b:b1,x:b2,y:b3,back:b6,start:b7,guide:b8,leftshoulder:b4,rightshoulder:b5,leftstick:b9,rightstick:b10,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightx:a3,righty:a4,lefttrigger:a2,righttrigger:a5,dpup:h0.1,dpleft:h0.8,dpdown:h0.4,dpright:h0.2, Searching for joysticks with GUID 030000005e0400008e02000004010000 Aborted (core dumped) the hardware I am using is a ryzen 7 1700 and an r9 380x
