    Phoronix: Steam Beta Update Now Allows Per-Game Enabling Of Steam Play, Other Improvements

    It was just yesterday that Valve dropped a big Steam client update including several long sought improvements for Linux gamers. Today that's been succeeded by another rather nice beta upgrade...

        Just curious, What ports are broken ATM? I would be curious to see if there might be any workarounds.

          Broken can be a term used to describe crappy performance also. For example Tomb Raider has some terrible performing areas in the native linux version and also looks a bit crappy under OpenGL compared to DX11.

          I think ROTR is fine however.

            Mostly unrelated, but how do I report an issue with the hid_steam kernel module with the Steam Controller? If I "fling" the cursor (swipe over the right touchpad and lift), the cursor goes a bit in the direction I swiped, and then goes erratically in some other direction (usually straight up or down, sometimes backwards).

            The SC in that basic keyboard/mouse mode works and maps perfectly for the one game I want to play with it; I don't want Steam client particularly. The experience is great aside from that one issue.

              Well, now I can hope they'll add a faster way to configure Steam's wine prefixes. In pretty much every case I have to dump out their scripts to run winecfg and enable a virtual desktop, plenty of games crap themselves and don't play nicely with dwm. It would also be nice to let people manually fix games that need some configuration to even run (like using winetricks to install .net).

                Why do we even need native steam version now, regular windows steam could be started in standalone proton just fine? Oh, wait a minute....

                  Sorry, I don't get the joke. "Oh, wait a minute...." what?

                    I forget if it's Feral (I'm pretty sure it is) but Company of Heroes 2 is pretty bad. It works but the performance is terrible, and it seems you don't have access to higher-quality textures.
