If you are using Mesa (FOSS OpenGL/Vulkan drivers on Linux), you can be in situation when it introduces some new features upstream, but it didn't make it into your distro yet and it can take quite a long time for that to happen. A guide to compiling it yourself.

My original guide on how to help fix screen-tearing on Linux with an NVIDIA GPU is a bit dated, so here’s an even easier way.

In January 2017 it will be 4 years since a bug report was opened about Steam not closing to the tray on Linux. On Windows it works perfectly, but on Linux it has been left to gather dust like so many other issues.

Valve have changed the USB/Bluetooth communication the Steam Controller uses, so on Linux you will need to update your udev rules.

I had been meaning to try out Nvidia's NVENC for a while, but I never really bothered as I didn't think it would make such a drastic difference in recording gaming videos, but wow does it ever!

Livestreaming is a big thing now! We do it, you do it, your dog would probably like to do it too. One thing that hasn't previously been easy is setting up things like follower alerts, now it is.

For those that don't know, or forgot, the new Unreal Tournament does in fact have a Linux version. I check on it now and then and it's really starting to come together.

Thanks to a few different people for their advice I have finally found a way to stop screen tearing with Nvidia proprietary drivers.

I don't entirely get why, but Steam on Ubuntu 16.04 will complain that the Steam package is out of date. The way to solve it is a little annoying, but it works.

I still see a surprising amount of confusion from people on what Steam games work on Linux. Hopefully this will help clear it all up.

I came across another one of my weird issues recently. In Unity3D games when running them my mouse pointer would just flash or flicker, and I found a simple solution.

I wanted to see how easy it was to not only get Minecraft working with the Steam Controller on Ubuntu, but to also see if I could get it all on my Steam Machine, and as it turns out most of it is easy enough.
