6 Things Vision Pro Needs Before It Can Go Mainstream
  • They should’ve waited until they could release something in the form factor of the Viture XR glasses. They could’ve probably figured out how to wirelessly show a Vision OS rendered by the iPhone or MacBook to some small form factor glasses.

    Instead they release a VR headset with pass through video that most people won’t really want to wear in public.

  • Elden Ring on Debian 12
  • You may be missing some setup for the X server.

    One of the last installation steps will offer to update your X configuration file. Either accept that offer, edit your X configuration file manually so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used, or run nvidia-xconfig

    More info here:

  • SteamVR 2.6 released with experimental improvements to async on Linux
  • It definitely works if you are willing to tinker but we are a low priority and anything that breaks takes a long time to fix. There’s even another project called Envision which runs better than SteamVR but isn’t as easy to use yet.

  • What do you use the back buttons for?
  • In games where combat uses the bumpers a lot I bind the back buttons to that. For the rest of the games it depends on the what I find annoying to do repeatedly and end up mapping that to a back paddle.

    For example on Breath of the Wild the back paddle was run which allowed me to run with one hand.

  • Patch Preview From Twinbeard
  • 7+ was quite manageable with a good 4 squad until they kept adding events that would bring a mission to a halt like infinite gunships and factory striders spawning right at the objective. I’m guessing that a lot of these fixes should start addressing that.

  • Linux user share on Steam breaks 2% thanks to Steam Deck
  • I moved my Desktop to Linux when the Steam Deck was announced. Before that I had no idea that Linux was able to play almost any game using Proton.

    So I think the Steam Deck has also boosted Desktop numbers.

  • Streaming non-steam games from Linux?

    I’ve been trying to stream my non-steam games from Arch Linux(host) using Steam Runtime but after opening the game no video gets to the Steam Deck(client). I can stream Steam games just fine but I have noticed that non-steam games don’t load the steam overlay either.

    Has anybody been able to figure this out?
