    Question Trusty, disable vsync in "radeon" driver?

    Hi everyone,

    On amd64 Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, what is the simplest way to disable all kinds of vsync and disable all kinds of fps caps/limits in the "radeon" driver? I'm trying to play Quake Live through Wine and "vblank_mode=0" lets me have higher than 60 fps in windowed mode, but still stays capped at 60 in fullscreen mode. And yes, I am sure that all kinds of vsync are turned off in the game itself.

    This is on a late 2008 Lenovo 17 inch laptop with
    2 GHz T5800 Intel Core 2 Duo
    4 GB system RAM
    Discrete graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 (512 MB), with a (in case this matters) VGA IN/OUT connector (and accompanying IN/OUT switch)
    Built-in 17 inch 1440x900 display

    Please help.

    Thanks R33D33M33R

    Can you or someone please help me out with carrying out the instructions on the page you linked?
    Do you think this method is applicable to Ubuntu even though it's on archlinux.org?
    Do you think this method will work for fullscreen mode in addition to windowed mode?
    If so,
    What program/application should I use to "create ~/.drirc" ? Would gedit work?
    What kind of text file should I compose it as?
    What file type and file extension should I save it as?
    What does the "~" symbol mean?
    In what folder should I end up leaving the created file in?

    Cheers

    It Should
    If so,What program/application should I use to "create ~/.drirc" ? Would gedit work?
    Gedit is totally fine, it's only a simple text file anyway.
    What kind of text file should I compose it as?
    Simply copy and paste it from the Arch page.
    What file type and file extension should I save it as?
    No extension necessary, this isn't Windows...
    What does the "~" symbol mean?
    the ~ symbol means /home, so ~/.drirc simply shortens /home/user/.drirc
    In what folder should I end up leaving the created file in?
    Home.
    Put in the same place that your folders such as Pictures Videos and Documents is located.
    Otherwise known as the top level of your home folder.
    If that makes sense.
    Just remember to put a dot at the front of drirc.
    The dot makes the file hidden and the system is designed to look for that file as a hidden file.
    Also, if that makes sense.
