Ticket #575 (closed task: fixed)
Automatically add force_s3tc_enable to ~/.driconf
|Reported by:||Philip||Owned by:|
|Priority:||Nice to Have||Milestone:||Alpha 2|
On many Linux systems, we need the user to force the enabling of S3TC in their drivers. (We no longer require the drivers to do compression, so we don't need libtxc_dxtn). Currently we tell them to run driconf and do it themselves.
Perhaps the game could automatically edit the ~/.driconf file and add an application-specific entry to set force_s3tc_enable. Given the documentation it sounds like the intention is that the file is a standard format that can be edited by multiple tools, so we probably shouldn't suffer from incompatible format changes. But maybe this would still be too fragile and/or evil?
