Steam On Linux Tries Again For Video Hardware Acceleration By Default On NVIDIA GPUs
Tonight's Steam client beta fixes various general bugs, a number of Steam Input bugs were also resolved, and then a few Linux issues -- 2 of the 3 pertaining to NVIDIA GPUs with their proprietary Linux g raphics driver.
The new Steam beta for Linux has fixed a crash when Steam windows were closed with hardware acceleration enabled on NVIDIA GPUs. In turn, the Steam beta has re-enabled hardware acceleration by default for NVIDIA GPUs.
It's now believed that all the NVIDIA Linux woes have passed and it's safe to re-enable the NVIDIA accelerated support out-of-the-box.
The full list of changes for tonight's Steam beta update can be found on Steam Community.
