Please note that 1.5.1-2 is not based on the same archive as 1.5.1-1 was. There was an upstream bug so delete the old upstream archive before trying to build 1.5.1-2.

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 :

Also, please consider using systemd-sysusers to install the gamemode group. See https://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/man/sysusers.d.html. There are hooks to run systemd-sysusers to automatically create the group after installation.

According to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_package_guidelines#Package_etiquette, please consider adding --libexecdir lib/gamemode to the meson command line.

Hi, thanks for packaging this!

One suggestion: should the group "gamemode" not be created when installing this package?

On line 16 in the PKGBUILD: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=gamemode#n16 "with-pam-group=gamemode" is set, but the group does not exit on my system.

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:
