Valve have updated Steam Play with the 3.16-1 beta based on Wine 3.16 and new DXVK

Power-Metal-GamesIt's Ubuntu 18.04. I assure you that I tried every possible thing I found on the internet and NOTHING worked. Not a big thing because I work every day so it's better not to play at all. I will just wait a little and reinstall the OS.

Wasn't there a bug and in the Ubuntu 18.04 Steam package? (Not the first time I got the impression installing Steam on Debian is easier than on Ubuntu...)

Power-Metal-GamesI tried it. It says that "this package has unmet dependencies". I give up...

Which distribution?
I'm sure we can help you.

Power-Metal-GamesYes, I installed that .deb downloaded from Steam. What is the other option?

To be mean: That's the Windows way.
The Linux way would be to use your distribution's package. They've got Valve's package, too, but may incorporate their knowledge about their distribution. Like... package dependencies.

NVIDIA have released the 410.57 driver as well as a 396.54.06 Vulkan beta driver to help DXVK

Comandante ÑoñardoFinally, about a month later, it has arrived to Ubuntu.

You're free to build PPAs at weekends.

Comandante ÑoñardoI mean, this is 2018... In this specific industry, the working model where you go to an office and sit in front of a desk fulfilling other people's daily schedules, is obsolete and ineffective...

I disagree. My company is developing software in real offices, and looking each other in the face (and not an image of it transferred over the net) is an important part of the process. As is periodic free time, like weekends. And a place free from home distraction, at least for me. I've got two baby children, it is impossible for me to work at home.
If anybody tells you weekends are against progress, it's likely he wants to exploit you.

Linux market share on Steam now at a 16 month high after a rounding error was fixed

Cyba.Cowboy~/.local/share/Steam/config/config.vdf

Search the file for the term "SurveyDate" and supposedly that's the last time the survey was run... But as I said, it claims on our computers it has been run, when in reality it has not.

Hm. Mine is under ~/.steam/steam/config/config.vdf
It contains...

"SurveyDate" "2018-02-22"
"SurveyDateType" "2"

EikeExperimental is not as evil as it sounds and has got 396.54 at the moment:
https://packages.debian.org/experimental/nvidia-driver
I did install from experimental several times and didn't run into problems.
Of course: no guarantee.

I used to run unstable/experimental in Potato/Woody times, then got older and switched to testing. Now I don't have enough time to play, not to mention tinkering, so it's stable, with backports when I want some excitement

And as sometimes happens... I had graphical glitches in Rumu yesterday, tried the Nvidia drivers from experimental and ended up with a whole black screen. Well, rollback was successful. I should always store the packages updated in a text file, this made it easier. (Rumu is better started with LANG=C at the moment, and it might be fragile after taking screenshots.)

debianxfceUse the nvidia driver from the web site. The run file is simple to use. Debian has many nvidia packages and they are old, buggy and difficult to remove. With the run file there just one command.

There's three packages to speak of at the moment, 384.130, 390.87 and 396.54. Any of these failed for you? What did you find hard about purging them? What's hard about about apt-get install nvidia-driver? I always recommend taking the distribution packages, because these guys and girls have the same input data as you have from e.g. Nvidia - and more knowledge about their distribution than you and me.

liamdaweWhat I can probably do is include a few of the projects in the tagline to help. The title too possible although titles still need to remain short.

Maybe you could (ab)use the picture.
