ADriConf GUI Control Panel Support For Mesa Vulkan Drivers Is Brought Up
ADriConf is the "Advanced DRI Configurator" and is the more maintained and featureful version than the traditional DriConf. But it's still not something Windows users would be envious about (more screenshots here):
It's been doing a best effort job though considering the limited resources and Intel nor AMD investing much effort in this area of GUI driver control panels.
Jean Hertel who has been leading the ADriConf work has now inquired about supporting Mesa's Vulkan drivers in a new Mesa discussion. While the OpenGL drivers have GLX and EGL extensions for exposing driver configuration tunables, unfortunately, for Vulkan drivers there doesn't appear to be any extension at this point for uniformally exposing driver options / driver configuration data. So for ADriConf to support Mesa Vulkan drivers it could be a long road ahead with first needing to get through a new Vulkan extension for driver-specific configuration querying otherwise relying upon static lists of per-driver options within the program itself. Hopefully 2020 will bring more positive news on the Linux driver GUI control panel front.
