I would like to see what my framerate is for Borderlands 2 (steam). However, the only way to do this that I can find on Google, is to install 3rd-party-software (fraps, EVGA monitor...). Right now, I am running Ubuntu, which is incompatible with all of these. Is there any way to see the framerate without installing anything?

Steam actually has a built in setting for you to check the FPS of any game. Go into setting and select the In-Game options and change the In-Game FPS counter to whatever position you want. This will then show some small text in one of the corners with the current FPS of the game.

    Thanks! This ended up being a lot simpler then I had imagined.
