    I don't use Linux for games. I have a Windows 8 partition which I dual boot into when I want to play games. As for graphics, I use GIMP and Xara Xtreme. Both work fine without any tweaking. So what are you expecting to happen when you say optimize for graphics?

    I wanted to install a game, speedx, on linux and it asked for some libraries like libpng which i thought should be available on the system by default. the game refused to make. i have gimp on my system an gimp is what i use. thanks. if i cannot install this game, then what other game can i install; it's just a low level game for speedracing.

    i understand that the 3d game would install the needed libraries and give me what i seek?
    will download the rpm from fedora site and thanks too for the link to the rpm search. have some software wanted to search for and upgrade by rpm on blag.
    thanks
