I first played the game on my Windows box, then I decided I'd give it a try on my Linux box, and it works quite well once I resolved my missing OpenGL extensions problem.

However, I noticed that everything in the game is slower than when I was playing on Windows: character moves slower, enemies move slower, etc. It's actually quite disturbing, and on the verge of frustrating as well, particularly after playing it at normal speed.

Anyone has an idea for fixing that?

You claimed to have installed dxtn.
That means you use Open driver, as proprietary from Nvidia already includes that.

The open driver for nvidia is a hit-or-miss. 80/92a chips (8800/9800) should be good enough supported by nouveau, but I suggest to install nvidia proprietary (legacy) driver if you want full 3d performance, or:
- buy amd (but not the very very recent gpus)
- buy newer nvidia (from kepler and up)
- buy top-tier intel (other provide bad performance)
