What works

Browsing web, watching videos, watching streams that do not work in native Linux.

What does not

At base installation, Chrome window renders completely black.  With DXVK window borders are not rendering properly and resizing the window causes portions of the window to not render.


Installing DXVK into Chrome's wine prefix solves the black window and functions very close to native.

Running in a virtual desktop solves border rendering and window resizing issues.

What was not tested

Everything not specifically mentioned as tested.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Works very well with Staging+DXVK in a virtual desktop.  This fully allows me to view streams that are blocked or not function in native Chrome, such as television provider stream sites.
