Dear PlayOnLinux Forums,

Last time I asked for help here, you were very quick and helpful; I bring this issue from a thread I posted in the ubuntu forums originally (where answers are not coming yet, that thread is here: )

I'm running xubuntu 16.04 on an Acer Aspire 15 laptop, and I am trying to play Mirror's Edge with Wine (playonlinux), using gallium9 for better performance.
lspci -vvnn | grep VGA gives:

00:01.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Mullins [Radeon R4/R5 Graphics] [1002:9851] (rev 05) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

2. Added and sudo apt-get upgraded to the
3. Made sure what wine version is the system one (wine --version now gives "wine-1.9.19", before it was 1.6 for some reason))
4. In PoL, in my mirrorsedge-prefix, set wine version to System, used winecfg to enable the gallium nine tick in the Staging tab
5. Added

Section "Device"

  Identifier "radeon"

  Driver "radeon"

  Option "DRI" "3"


To /etc/X11/xorg.conf (I'm not sure if this is correct, but it is as instructed in one of the ppa's).

When starting with debug in PoL:
