    Would you be interested in seeing GeForce Experience on Linux?
    Not really. Especially if it requires/encourages registration.

    What do you use right now for your Linux game streaming and screenshots?
    FFmpeg, jack_capture and KSnapshot.

      I'd love game streaming on Linux. Moonlight is one of my most used apps on my Pixel.

        Oh god, please no. Just recently I tried installing Nvidia drivers for another persons' desktop machine that had some issues, but was prompted with a bloody login screen before I could even install the drivers. I simply didn't install the drivers, there's no way I'm logging into someone else's computer with my shit.

          I'd use it personally. Nvidia's encoder has basically 0 performance impact and is much nicer than using FFMPEG or OBS. The autoconfiguration for games is handy also, though I'd rather see some of the Windows driver's GUI configuration options moved over for easier per-game control of settings like AA/AF/Vsync/Gsync/etc.

            I'm not sure what login screen greeted you, the Nvidia driver doesn't require login to install.

            That said, I don't understand why GFE is bundled with the drivers on Windows, it wouldn't make more sense for me on Linux.

              Can you still install the drivers without Geforce experience? I thought Nvidia removed that option last year, thus forcing everyone who installs the drivers to identify themselves with an account.

                Does that also mean that they finally added support for G-Sync to Vulkan?

                  /usr/bin/import - a strong alternative to KSnapshot/Spectacle/etc:

                  Code:
                  $ cat ~/bin/screenshot
                  DATE=$(date --rfc-3339=seconds)
                  FILE="desktop $DATE.png"
                  import -window root "$FILE"
                  chmod -w "$FILE"
                  notify-send "$DATE.png"
                  And map the global shortcut Ctrl+E to ~/bin/screenshot.

                  KSnapshot/Spectacle/etc are useful if the screenshot is targeting a specific window or desktop region.

                    Of course you can skip GFE. Just don't hit next, next, next in the installer. Select custom install and it lets you select items to install (I don't install 3D Vision and GFE, for example).
