Another Steam Client Beta has released, one of the important fixes here is that the DualShock 4 gamepads should now work with recent Kernel versions.

Here's what's changed:
  • Fixed Launchers in Steam games not using the Desktop Configuration

  • Fixed a bug with controller configuration conversion from one controller type to another where some modes such as DPad wouldn’t be active after conversion.

  • Added support for the Desktop Configurator for when a game asks for the Configurator but the user has disabled the overlay or Big Picture overlay.

  • Fixed bug with On-screen Keyboard in Big Picture Mode’s web browser losing input.

  • Fix handling of XDG_DATA_DIRS and .desktop files with command-line arguments when adding non-steam games to your library.

  • Fixed game support for DualShock 4 controllers when using recent kernels.

A pretty small update, but good to have such issues fixed as I saw a few people complaining about the DS4 recently.

The point about the Desktop Configurator sounds interesting, but I'm not exactly sure what they mean by it. I have yet to see any game bring up Steam's own configuration tool for gamepads when editing any gamepad settings in-game. If anyone can shed some light on that, leave a comment.

All I know is that Valve was not ready to ship Steam OS. It is still not ready for a mass audience. It's a bit sad to see. It's very much unfinished like Android TV.
