fedotixDoes Anyone tried the steam controller with The Fedora distribution?
Not a Fedora user myself, but it should work just fine. Take a look here:

slaapliedjeHmm, I have been running 4.18 on Debian Sid for a long time now and haven't had an issue. It has ran about the same as it always has. Wonder if they already blacklist it. Will have to check.
The module is not built in Debian kernels. Just checked.

They should really put Steam Play settings into the Big Picture mode. Now I need to switch to the desktop mode to check which version am I running. Or have a forever "latest beta" setting.

Saturday Mag: Linux gaming news odds and ends plus a look at a few things on sale

Hi Liam. To be frank, I find these type of news not quite to my liking. When I look through new articles, I like to see the headline and the short summary, because I can easily gauge my interest in the topic, and decide if I want to read the full article. Whereas here I have to skim through every paragraph to see if there is anything of interest in there.

I appreciate that you do not want to spam us, but maybe it would be possible to introduce a different kind of news item for these tiny tidbits of information? Something like a headline and a paragraph of text directly on the frontpage without it being a link to an article perhaps.

This is really a matter of presentation, not the actual content. Because the content is great, and you are awesome.

Dedale78/59... 32.2% increase. Cool. I hope it sets a durable trend.
With these rates we will have total world domination in no time. ;)

Linas8-bit Commando had a Linux version since forever, but it was terribly broken. I'll try to reinstall it to see if they fixed it.
Yes, it does seem to work! I just completed a level, a feat that I was not able to do before because of crashes.

hummer010Oooo ... >observer_ is tempting. That's a historical low, according to isthereanydeal.com.

Oh yeah! I missed the last time it was on sale. Not going to make the same mistake twice.

This does look interesting, but is there anything for Linux here?
