    I have never used Blackbox Linux, do you know if the Proprietary video drivers are installed or open source?
    I would definitely try another game just to be sure...
    • Open Arena
    • 0A.D.
    • Drox Operative

    Hmmm you are right as i can see my computer isnt made for linux and there arent drivers available for my acer3610
    SNIDl:LXA74057016030C0BBKS00 ( cheked on acer official page )
    not that they arent working but they arent working propetly like my cd reader ( it doesnt work at all but on a reboot if i put a cd boot format will be recocnised normaly )
    So probably there is the problem
    tell me what game you want me to test ( that cd isnt reccuired ( sry my english is kinda bad )
    You must guide me for everything because im totaly newbie on linux if you need anything else

    0A.D. is pretty harmless installation. I've never used Blackbox, but Ubuntu and Mint should have it in the software installer. Just search for 0A.D. and install it.
    Otherwise, there are a bunch of other free games out there: Free Linux Games
    Something 3D is preferred so we know if the video chip can handle it.
    What video is running on your Acer3610?

    Here are a bunch more free games on Desura: Free Games
    Just install the Desura client and then create an account.
    Login and search for one of those games on the list, then it will automatically install.

    Blackbox must be using open-source drivers.
    What video chip is your computer using: Intel, AMD, Nvidia?
    I recommend searching online on how to install the proprietary drivers. Open source drivers rarely get the performance games need from the video chip.

    I'm not sure what version of Blackbox you are using, but here is a Blog with some steps on how to install Intel drivers:
    Install xserver-xorg-video-intel

    Of course this is at your own risk. installing drivers can break things in Linux if they are not supported by your hardware or Linux distro.

    I recommend going back to Ubuntu 12.04 and installing the automatic way.
    My Chromebook Acer C710 has an Intel HD 2000 video chip and the drivers are automatically installed with ChrUbuntu.
    But its pretty limited with gaming. I can't play a whole bunch of modern games.

    I forgot to tell you that I did login to League of Legends and started a match.
    Loading all of the Players takes a while, but I was in-game and actually played a bit. No problems. Not even a store crash.
