Now that SteamVR 2.0 is officially out, Valve has continued to push out Beta releases with other improvements and the Linux situation with SteamVR seems better now too.
In the SteamVR Beta 2.0.10 release Valve noted these improvements:
- A fix for IVRVirtualDisplay interface.
- Fixed binding UI crashing when saving a binding.
- Fix 'Shared IPC Compositor Init Failed' error reported by the Steam client on startup.
- Fix Room Setup not launching on some systems.
And thankfully, testing my Valve Index on Kubuntu 23.10 today the new UI does finally show up and the annoying 303 error has also gone as well. So we're a big step closer. Some issues still remain like the colours being flipped (it's very brown) and the Steam Store section was just a blank page but it's getting there now.
Hopefully it won't be long until the other issues are fixed now it's mostly working. Great stuff to see!
