Valve seem to be moving pretty quickly with Steam Play, as a new stable Steam Client is out which includes preliminary support for the new Steam Play Beta.

See Also: My thoughts on Steam Play and what it means for Linux gaming.

So essentially, Steam Play is the same as before as it's in Beta but it's now available to everyone on Linux. You no longer need to opt-in to the Beta version of the Steam Client to actually access it. I'm quite surprised they've done this so quickly, it's only been just over a week since it was actually announced.

On top of that, there's also touch control support in the Steam Link app. That's a pretty nice and natural addition, to have proper on-screen controls to play your games with while streaming from your PC to your mobile device. See their guide here for more info.

There's also plenty of fixes to the new Steam Chat, Steam Input, Big Picture Mode and so on.

See the full changelog here.

Of course not.

QuoteNext year, if you are using either Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 LTS, you will be prompted to upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. For normal release users, this upgrade should happen with the release of 17.10.

As a result of this decision there will no longer be a separate GNOME flavor of Ubuntu. The development teams from both Ubuntu GNOME and Ubuntu Desktop will be merging resources and focusing on a single combined release, that provides the best of both GNOME and Ubuntu.
You should upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04
Oh well. It's actually Ubuntu 18.04 (vanilla), but with the gnome session. My bad.

Hmmm - no matter what try, what I set where, the DXVK_HUD is nowhere to be seen
Did anybody make it work?

Works fine. Just set
DXVK_HUD=1 %command%
as start parameter for the particular game in Steam.

If it still doesn't show, then Proton is probably falling back on wined3d11.

And worth mentioning is that DXVK is for d3d11 games only, and possibly d3d10 in the future. If you are trying to run a d3d9-game then obviously your not going to get DXVK.

No problem, but you should update your PC info, it would be nice if @liamdawe removes the Ubuntu-GNOME on April 2019, that's when 17.04 LTS ends it's support.
