Want to get an easy to use on-screen Discord Overlay for Linux and Steam Deck? Discover Overlay v0.5.1 is out now. It's incredibly useful when you're in a group gaming session, chatting away and you want an easy to see list of who is in the chat (both voice and text channels supported). Good for video recordings too, for viewers to know who is who.

Here's what's new:

  • Added system notification support
  • Huge overhaul of connector which hopefully fixes rate limit / temporary API bans
  • Improved default settings
  • Gave each module a named logger rather than "Root"
  • Fixed Autostart on boot
  • Prevent multiple Flatpak instances
  • Fix HiDPI floating window placement
  • Other but fixes!

Using it on Linux is wonderfully simple, and it works quite well on the Steam Deck too. You can check out a quick test I did previously on the Steam Deck below:

I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.
