[Solved] FFXIV on DWM?

Does anybody here play FFXIV with DWM? Mine just crashes after hitting play on the launcher.

Currently running ProtonGE7-41. Was just wondering if anyone has even got the game to work on dwm (and if yes, how?) since I couldn't find any specific thread about this.

Re: [Solved] FFXIV on DWM?

Is dwm relevant to this question?  Does the game work on other WMs?

How did you install and how are you running / trying to run FFXIV?  What is the stderr output on the terminal when this crashes?  Is there are core dump?

Re: [Solved] FFXIV on DWM?

The game has really good reviews on protonDB so I assume it works well on most Distro's/DEs.

I just installed it via Steam.

This is the output on my terminal when the error occurs:

Re: [Solved] FFXIV on DWM?

Where the actual files of the game reside? Onto a NTFS partition?

Please post here

$ find ~/ -iname 39210


WARNING!!! MAKE BACKUPS FIRST!!
Try removing its profile folder and re-try with standard Proton (not Experimental, not GE).

But it doesn't work on yours and you seem to link that with dwm.  My question is whether there is any reason at all to think dwm is a relevant factor in your issue - and this is a question you could quite easily test / answer.

You were right it wasn't related to dwm, mb. I had assumed it was since dwm is kinda known for not being compatible with games.

Thank you for pointing out the error, found the reason.


Following command showed me that I had amd vulkan drivers installed (while I'm running nvidia).

pacman -Qs vulkan

I uninstalled the following drivers -

amdvlk
lib32-amdvlk

I assume they installed along with the steam package on pacman

Replaced those with

nvidia-utils
lib32-nvidia-utils

That fixed it!
