Remote play together does not work between linux
Science 27 Nov, 2020

My System Info

Linux Distribution: Manjaro
Desktop Environment: Gnome
Graphics Card: AMD RX 580
GPU Driver Version: 2.2.2
(more details https://pastebin.com/w4JPaDfk )

So, basically, Remote Play Together doesn't work between Linux machines (my friend and I both have Manjaro). But Remote Play Together works just fine from Linux to Windows.

I tried different decoding options (and also what it says here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Steam/Troubleshooting#Steam_Remote_Play_issues ) but always it says "The streaming client exited unexpectedly (2)". When him or I try to host. Both tried to RPT to a Windows machine and both worked. The problem is when we try to play (again, both under Manjaro).

I don't know how to generate or find the log files, however, my friend says he found them in /tmp/dumps/file.dmp but idk if this says something useful ( https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BZCxuipNcH6tvQFmRlR8aTMIAuPEdV7I/view?usp=sharing )

It works for me and my family (all linux users) but recently as of mid March controller support stopped working. I use to use remote play for Tekken 7 and Sega games and it worked perfectly then after an update it still works but only for keyboard controls not controller.

So maybe I am missing a package or library or I don't know. Anyway, thanks
