Alright my dudes. I sent jagex a tech support ticket to fix the linux install.

You can depackage the deb and remove the instance of libglew, as long as you have the modern version of libglew it will work. I tried symlinking 1.10 to 1.13 but it segfaulted (OMG)


Here is the thing, if you remove the dependancy, this thing works for chromebooks. Not even joking. There is a huge audience of chromebook users who could easily install runescape and play it without a problem. The client isnt being modified in any way, just the install scripted dependancies. l0l.

repackge and run it. if anyone needs a guide I got u. Make Gileanor on Chromebooks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Nota Hero.

Another chromebook user here! - Acer Edgar brasswell 1.2Ghz cpu running Gentoo.
The .ebuild works fine there.

I am not familiar with .deb is that Ubuntu/Debian you are running?

The chromebook for it's price around 300 euro is nice priced, however the slow CPU makes games-rpg/runescape-launcher only run at Low settings on that chromebook to get 60 fps.

Personally i would prefer a desktop system that does not cost too much and make the runescape-launcher run at 60 fps on 4k screen :) but that cost a bit more.
GNU/Linux
Gentoo
Debian
RuneScape

use xrander to render game at 1280x720 or something similar / sane to your aspect ration. Some chromebooks are 3:2 vs 16:9 or 16:10

terminal
xrandr
it will output what display your currently using, remember it. it will be like edp-1 or something
cvt 1280 720 60
you will get something like
# 1280x720 59.95 Hz (CVT 1.76MA) hsync: 65.29 kHz; pclk: 146.25 MHz
Modeline "1680x1050_60.00" 146.25 1680 1784 1960 2240 1050 1053 1059 1089 -hsync +vsync

copy everything AFTER modeline

xrandr --newmode [paste]
xrandr --addmode [display name, will be like edp-1] 1280x720_60.00

chromebooks think we need 1440p in a 11" package, thats insane.
You can also try running in fullscreen and using the half resolution thing.
This will DRAMATICALLY cut cpu.

Does this alter the system setting itself? Or is oriented towards the Runescape client alone?

I'm trying to install the Linux client and I encountered libglew. Could you explain your workaround to me like I'm 5?

P.S. I'm new to Linux. I've installed Gnome and Gimp and that's about it lol. I'm catching on fast though. And thank you in advance for your help.
