Dual Intel/Nvidia graphics
There is a bug in JavaFX for Linux, which may cause insane refresh rates on some hardware configurations (mostly hybrid Intel/Nvidia graphics). This should never occur, as the game code includes a workaround to the problem. However, if it happens to you, it will cause high resources consumption and poor graphics quality.
One way or another, if you've got an Nvidia/Optimus laptop, you probably need to use Bumblebee
primusrun in the command line. Just edit the
eist-editor.desktop shortcuts, adding
optirun to the
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=false Exec=optirun eist-returns Categories=Game; Comment=Arcade-puzzle game Icon=/usr/share/eist-returns/eist-returns.png Name=Eist returns
If you'd prefer to make sure you use the proper graphics, instead of editing the
.desktop activator, open the
sudo nano /usr/bin/eist-returns
and change its content to:
#!/bin/sh exec optirun /usr/bin/java -jar -Dprism.verbose=true '/usr/share/java/eist-returns/eist-returns.jar' "$@"
Run the game from the terminal, by entering
eist-returns, and check the output. Search the
