I’m relatively new to nvidia-linux (I’d used nvidia cards under Windows in the past, but my Linux experience for the past several years has all been Intel Mesa) and have been getting used to the various tweaks exposed through nvidia-settings (coolbits, etc).
One thing I’ve noticed is that setting system-wide MSAA or FXAA for OpenGL applications doesn’t really seem to work in practice; because most modern Linux desktops are technically OpenGL applications, enabling MSAA or FXAA results in heavily antialised text (as though desktop applications render to textures, which I think is actually the default behaviour in compiz), which is often illegible, and in any case completely unnecessary.
I wouldn’t bother with the system-wide settings at all if not for the fact that many modern Linux titles don’t seem to have their own internally defined MSAA or FXAA options for some reason, as though they’re expecting you to use system-wide settings instead.
Am I missing something? Thanks!
