    Hey there, I have been thinking of switching to Linux. I have tried ubuntu 20.04 with unity 2019.4. It worked but not like its supposed to be.

    in an empty scene with a simple low poly character i was getting around 150 fps. but it was actually laggy and unplayable. i couldn't even load a light scene with some assets.

    There might has been some kind of problem. so i want to know if this is fixed or should i use some other distro.

    Unity for Linux is only tested with certain versions of Ubuntu or Centos. Also you need to make sure you have the correct video drivers for the correct GPU's.

    For example, for NVidia GPU's you need to install the proprietary driver from NVidia. The open source driver which often is installed by default for NVidia cards is not supported.

    Intel integrated graphics isn't mentioned as supported, if that is what you're using. Note that Unity for Linux is still in a preview state.

    Upgrade to newest Unity version for starters. Since the Linux editor is considered experimental, we don't backport fixes to it so you're using it in the state it was 2 years ago.
