Most of the games are playable now thanks to Valve but today I wanted to play catherine classic on Steamdeck but I was not able to - freezing and loading screen when starting a lvl :(

What is the status of VR in Linux? (plug and play?)

Shall I buy Valve Index VR Kit or wait for something newer from Valve?

caused by the systemd boot which turned on by default in 5.25

kwriteconfig5 --file startkderc --group General --key systemdBoot false

then reboot fixed it!

I have Just install the latest version from AUR and Flatpack to see what is the fuss about it...

Both versions ...Crashing all over the place!
A lot of bugs , I cant even press the next button.
Had to press ALT+F4 to close the tips popup.
Tried to install something - crashed...
open it again - crashed...

Linux distro EndeavourOS has the 'Apollo' release out now
12 April 2022 at 6:37 pm UTC

Quoting: Craggles086So if EndeavourOS had a testing and a Stable or LTS branch then I would be sold. Arch breaks too often and Manjaro is too heavy and has too many background tasks running.

If you could build your own system out of Manjaro in the same way you do with Arch then it would be cool. And no, Architect does not quite cut it.

If EndeavourOS could switch to a selection of packages that would not update until they had been tested then it would trump all other Arches!

It has stable - testing - kde unstable like Arch ..

Sorry Arch (EndeavourOS), it's not working out any more and hello Fedora

Once you go with Arch you never go back.... :P

I am using EndeavourOS which is kinda Arch with easy installation...

Is just everything works...
I am even on testing repos on Arch with KDE Unstable , very few issues which most issues are solved within a day.
