I'm experiencing odd graphics problems that I cannot fix in proton or lutris. Games become unplayable or look very ugly with nasty lag. I posted some images in the discord of the issue. Adjusting graphic settings in game does not fix either.

Maybe try downgrading libx11 first. Run

sudo downgrade libx11

To version 1.8.2 it have been causing issues recently, and can help maybe.
Report back if this doesn't solve the issue

Yeah the problem is still there, fixed it a little but not really. Lighting is still inverted in most games.

Found the problem, amd packages were installed despite me selecting nvidia.
