The main branch (bleeding edge) has the latest version of KDE. So an update is thankfully coming. Still no KDE Connect though, but Discover doesnt shit the bed anymore.Man the linux side of the Deck is such an afterthought. Still the same fucking bug when nothing updates when there are too many flatpaks to update.
And on a more personal note, warpinator doesn't finds winpinator. Again.
I suppose I will have to use an ftp client ? In 2022.
-------------------------------------One of the most exciting changes is to shader compiling. Unless games already have their shaders ready, like you see in Steam when it downloads them for you, there will often be a lot of stuttering as the game builds it up with DXVK as you play. That's now changed! If you have drivers that support what's needed, the "shaders will now be compiled at the time the game loads its D3D shaders, rather than at draw time" resulting in reduced or eliminated shader compile stutter. There's some caveats with this though like some games only loading their shaders as you play anyway, 32-bit games may stutter and NVIDIA uses more space.
I think what you're seeing is the reason Valve hasn't released SteamOS 3.0 yetNot even 10 minutes in the Arch side of Steam Deck, just a black screen while I can still move the mouse cursor.
What did I expect...
Fuck that shit. I'm tired of wasting my time on this fucking linux side.
THIS IS HUGE!!!!DXVK, the translation layer that converts Direct3D calls to Vulkan for use with Wine and Proton, has a big new release out with version 2.0. This is one of the ways that Proton performs so well for Windows games on Linux desktop and Steam Deck.www.gamingonlinux.com
SteamDeckHQ does a great job with recommended settings for a bunch of recent games. But yeah, it would be great if we could download them similar to the controller profiles .What I want the most is steam deck settings community profiles. I would love to just be able to download a "45 FPS" profile and just go. But sadly don't think that's ever going to be possible, since every game handles settings like that differently.
It's installed in each game's proton environment.So, for games that use any kind of external launcher, say Rockstar, EA or Ubisoft games, is the launcher installed into the Proton environment per game, or is it installed into SteamOS proper?
Will you have Internet in Finland ?I will be on a 10 day trip in Finland with many long train rides. Looking forward to all the deck gaming I have ahead of me! Will be interesting to see how well it will work on the road like that. Trying to only stick to 2D games for battery life and those probably work well in offline mode
Yeah I’ll probably have occasional internet , so will set it in offline mode before I leave France. It’s in one week so have time to prepare.Will you have Internet in Finland ?
And , while I have no idea about the process, just remember to set up your deck for offline mode beforehand.
