SteamVR under Linux
krisguy commented on 11 September 2017 at 2:59 pm UTC

Anyone have the fortune/luck/mispleasure/other adjective to try SteamVR in Linux? I'm tempted to try it, but I'm afraid it will take everything my RX 580 has and not perform well.

SteamVR On Linux Currently Runs Well On At Least A GeForce GTX 1070/1080

I posted a forum post a while back that I meant to keep more up to date on it.

But the raw issue is that we need more Vulkan games. For example, Alice VR should work, and indeed it works under Linux, but it doesn't display in the Vive headset, since Vulkan support is required. Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter works great though, it's just a serious pain! But Seriously fun!

Destinations and a few other things work though. Definitely need Vulkan...
