To enable it at userlevel (with systemd) don't forget to execute:

systemctl --user enable gamemoded

once as current user and

systemctl --user start gamemoded

if you want to start it manually

For compatibility with 32bit games see :

Switching from Antergos to Arch Linux fixed it.

@telans I always get: Failed to connect to bus: No such file or directory

@hugegameartgd you need to use "systemctl --user status gamemoded" if you enabled using --user

When I run "systemctl status gamemoded.service" I get:

@Vash63

In the last version this seems to be fixed. According to https://github.com/FeralInteractive/gamemode/blob/1.3.1/example/gamemode.ini the ini is in the defaults values, so it shouldn't cause any of the any of the issues you mentioned. By all means, keep a version in doc but can be copied to share/gamemode too now without issues. Maybe add it to backups and copy it in etc too?

Edit: On second thought, since upstream doesn't install it by default, don't bother with it. It is fine in doc

Hi :) When you bump $pkgver you should reset $pkgrel to 1. (Obviously don’t do it now, just keep it in mind for when the package is next updated.)

Hello!This tool is great.But i don't how to use for applications like lmms beta rc7 appimage.

Suggestion - the gamemode.ini should be commented out or named something to not execute by default.

Looking at the config it's a bunch of example values used to override the default behavior. As an example with the default here it tries to execute '/home/me/bin/stop_ethmining.sh' when it starts, which looked a bit weird in my journal. The example .ini also disables restoring governer to the original value and changes the default renice value from -4 to 4, somewhat losing the point of gamemode to begin with.

I don't believe this is an upstream issue as the file is in the 'example' directory of the project and not set as a default config file.

To the users below who had problems starting the service, this is how i managed to make it work.

I installed using makepkg -si, afterwards i ran 'systemctl --user start gamemoded', but it gave me an error.

So i ran 'gamemoded -d' and it launched, then i shut it down using the system monitor and then i ran 'systemctl --user enable gamemoded', and now it seems to startup fine using 'gamemoded' or 'systemctl --user start gamemoded'.

still no gamemode.ini file tho.

I get this: https://pastebin.com/j66hH0CD

Apparently I am missing some gamemode.ini. How do I fix this?
