    Would love to see how it's packaged.

      Given that a flatpak is self contained, to the games get installed within the local storage for steam? This would mean that you can't choose a destination for the game outside of your home disk. Is there a way to fix this?



      A flatpak'ed app can't start things outside its own sandbox, so the game must be confined within the steam sandbox.
      A flatpak app can have overrides provided to it on launch. In this case you could add "--filesystem=/your/steam/library/path" to the launcher and it should allow access to the games. I did this with Gnome Games so it could access games stored in a shared system folder outside my home directory as well as allow it to hook into other libretro cores not bundled with it.

        Guess I should've said Flatpak repository or something along those lines to be more clear about it.

        Either way, thanks for the link to the steam flatpak manifests - even if it seems to be just a thin wrapper over the real packaging work they've done in other parts.

          What happened to the similar initiative from Solus?
          AFAIK they packaged the Steam runtime, not Steam itself.

            i'm pretty sure blobs worked fine for broadcom, still broadcom employed open dev

                Broadcom makes the chip and wants to sell it better in its market that wants opensource support.

                That linux distro only wanted a good user experience.

                  why does broadcom want to to sell it in market that wants opensource support, but endless doesn't want to sell it in market that wants opensource support?

                    Correct, Endless does not sell to market that wants opensource support. Endless sells smooth user experience to Apple-like end users.

                      I like how endless have an "offline" so to speak idea. And the flipping apps over to see the code is insanely useful for people learning coding.
