    @Michael: First page, second image: "KDE Frameworks 5" is not a desktop, just libraries. It wouldn't hurt to explicitly state the *full* KDE Plasma version instead.

      Did you read the article? Michael clearly states it's a known bug with Mutter de-focusing the window because it thinks the game is unresponsive while it's starting.

      Go actually use Gnome 3 and fire up CS:GO. When the annoying "OH NOES I THINK THIS HAS CRASHEDED" popup comes up, click the wait option, and let the game load.

      Bam. You get good performance. Certainly better than the 15fps displayed here.

      Also, troll harder, nub.

          Not actually a mutter bug. The SDL apps aren't responding to pings from Mutter.

            The plot thickens.

            I think this points to something important, though: what Mutter is doing is probably entirely sane, and the reactions of some of the forum-dwellers here might not be.

              As a regular CSGO player, I really wish Mutter would let me increase the timeout before bringing up the crashed app window without having to compile from source. That should be a tweak tool or dconf setting.

                Well, you are the one who started the disinformation about mutter to save your precious gnome dignity.

                  Just when there's an article to be fairly positive about overall, with performance being relatively even (especially if you take into account default software compositing as being a likely reason for MATE's lesser showing - I can't wait for that to be ported to Wayland), people still find a reason to bitch and get all trolly. I swear some of the people around here need a shrink for their issues.

                    For some reason XFCE is faster for gaming on my system than Mate, Mint, Gnome and some others. Most likely due to it being a custom tailored sort xfce fusion for the studio distribution I am on. I have been stuck using this distro and desktop for years cause I pardon the pun don't want to budge from it. I got my brother hooked on the Ubuntu Studio desktop and he used to be a windows only user. Only thing that ran on par with xfce is fluxbox performance wise with games. Is it cause it is set up for low latency? I wish I knew or had a set up control to see the test. Right now the only thing I can compare it to is wintendos latest. Which makes me shrink from gaming a bit still I stay in linux most the time due to it being home more than win10 despite the dozes gaming performance prowess.

                      Michael,

                      I'd like to see the SteamOS compositor in future gaming benchmarks. Can use native SteamOS or that PPA for Ubuntu.
