First of all, I really effing hate that those big companies don't port games to Steam so that everyone can enjoy their friggin' games
Now that I've got that out of the system, under is my system (pun intended).

I wanted to play Doom Eternal through Steam (Proton) but the launcher tells me that I am using an old driver (same thing with AC: Odyssey) and that I need to update it. Unfortunately, there is nothing to update because I already am using the latest Nvidia driver for Linux. If I press 'Play anyway' the launcher closes and the game does not start. As for AC: Odyssey, I can sort of play it... the game launches, but I get an annoying pop-up that the drivers are outdated and it only lets me play on potato graphics.
I've tried searching ProtonDB to see if it runs and it seems as if some people manage to do so. I am apparently too stupid to figure out how ProtonDB works as well, because the comments tell me nothing; no settings, no workarounds, no nothing. Is there any workaround for this?
thermal monitordoesn't seem to work, are there any alternatives that are possible to use? That applet seemed perfect, as it monitors everything from disks to CPU, but it seems that it is broken.
- Is there an alternative to MSI's Afterburner? I want to set my graphics card to not pass the 70°C (that's 160°F for you yankees ). If it's possible to do so using terminal or whatever, please teach me how to do so.
- I have a Razer DeathAdder Elite mouse and I remember that on Ubuntu there was an open source alternative to their Synapse (which, imo, sucks anyways as it is super-bloated) - is there something similar for Manjaro? If so, what packages do I need to use in order to make it work?
- Is it possible to set the fan speeds for the CPU? I am using a Corsair H115i processor cooler.
I know this is a lot to ask, but I'm afraid to bork my system by installing all sorts of crap. And, because this is the first time I've managed to use Linux without trouble, I'd like to keep it that way
Many, many thanks to this wonderful community for making me stick to Manjaro and helping me countless times before. Even if you can't help, you're still the reason why I will continue using this distro!
EDIT: forgot to mention that the scroll wheel doesn't work any more when trying to scroll thing such as the
pacman GUI and if I try to click the scroll bar, I almost need surgical precision or else it will click something else.
