    Re: Gaming graphic quality is so bad

    We need to know a lot more about your hardware and software so please for a start run terminal command
    Code:
    inxi -Fzx
    You may have to install inxi in order to do this but I think it is a default in Ubuntu now so try first.

    Please use Code-Tags for terminal output as it makes that output much more easily read and understood, formatting the text as seen in terminal, not as plain text when it is copied and pasted. See my signature below for a How-to

    well not much information to go on here. so see this first: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1422475

    and in the mean time what does it mean graphics are so bad? define bad? you get atrefacts? screen is flickering? resolution is low? you see squares in the lines? the look quite well to me. my kids have a much better PCs than i do (GPU wise at least). and their graphics are quite good. they play on HD resolution. they have native steam games, wine games and games via proton. most GPU intense i saw so far is Doom 2016. but Subnautica, Bioshock infinite though with older engines all look great.
    Read the easy to understand, lots of pics Ubuntu manual.
    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?

    I mean that its like bad pixel quality in game i cant tell you what its like but i upload an image from which you can check what i am talking about.

    Also, please re-read post #2. ajgreeny asked you to enclose your terminal output between BBCode code tags to make it readable. ajgreeny also referred to a code tag howto in their signature if you need it. There's one in mine too. Please edit your post #4 and enclose the terminal output between code tags.

    Re: Gaming graphic quality is so bad

    I see from that inxi output that you are using an integrated graphics system on an Intel Atom CPU, probably simply not good enough for gaming.
    Code:
    Graphics:
      Device-1: Intel Atom Processor Z36xxx/Z37xxx Series Graphics & Display 
      vendor: Lenovo driver: i915 v: kernel bus ID: 00:02.0 
      Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.9 driver: i915 resolution: 1366x768~60Hz 
      OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics (BYT) v: 4.2 Mesa 20.2.6 
      direct render: Yes
    It may be good enough for some low resource gaming but for many other games, I suspect not; I am not a gamer so I can not give more detailed info about this so wait for other people to comment.

    is this your laptop?

    you won't really be able to game with this one, however supertuxcart should still work nicely and look good on this one. this could a bug of sorts. are other games also giving you issues?

    slow, but should still be able to do some light gaming. old games (like source engine based ones, games from arround 2005-2010) should be playable on low settings.

    i don't know much about intel graphics, but you can try a few simple things:
    1. switching to old xorg instead of wayland (at login)
    2. run game sin full screen mode. i believe Ubuntu now also has a system settings option that will suppress special desktop effects when programs (games) run in full screen. special desktop effects can interfere with GPU usage and reduce it's efficiency.
    3. check how much ram the GPU has reserved in BIOS. Maybe increase that to 1 GB at least.
    4. Intels (especially a bit older ones) behave quite differently when they are on battery or if they have power plugged in. it gives them a major boost. so make sure power is plugged in when you game.
    5. check system settings and make sure any power management settings and such are boosted for performance when you play games.
    6. play arround with game settings a bit. resolution, view distance, antialiasing, vsync, special effects etc. all have some effect on GPU usage. and they might not have a big effect on game if you reduce some or increase some. lliek for example in CS:GO you can actually see the enemy better if you reduce some settings to low. so pros would have these gaming machines and they would set resolution and almost everything to low.
    7. you can also try a lighter more 2D oriented desktop (such as Lubutnu. Xubuntu) to conserve your small resources and use them for gaming instead. for example i have a netbook with Kubuntu but the desktop is set to that it uses some old openGL and does not look as fancy. but this creates more resources for applications and games.
    Read the easy to understand, lots of pics Ubuntu manual.
    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?
