Default FSAA and AF under Linux?

I installed my nForce and nV VGA drivers on my SuSE 8.2 Pro system and can play games such as Quake 3 etc. well and fluently.

However, I would like to activate FSAA and AF and so far didnt find anything on the Internet except some entries in the XF86config file that do not work.

Is there a tool or something that allows Linux users to use FSAA and AF in games?

Thanks in advance!

you need to set the environment variables before you run the application eg

export __GL_ENABLE_FSAA=1
export __GL_FSAA_MODE=2

for the values for __GL_FSAA_MODE check the README file that is installed with the drivers, as it varies by card.

Open a console terminal and enter the environment variables according to your card's settings (see the release notes).
Then, in the same console, start your game.

If you want those settings to apply to ALL your games, edit the rc.init file and add those export lines (this will work for the user where the modified rc.init is).
