A new and quite interesting Steam Client Beta is out, nice Linux fixes and Vulkan shader downloading

HoriI use monitor built-in-speakers so unless I destroy my finger pressing the volume down button 100 times to turn mute the audio, and then 100 times again to turn it back to max, which I never expected to have to do, I can't do anything about it.
Usually monitors with speakers have a headphone jack, which automatically mutes the speakers when in use. That might be an easier workaround until the bug gets fixed.

If you like adventure games, pirates and/or comedy, just buy it. I know I will.

The game is -50% on Steam until the 9th, and that's from a base price of 12.49€. It's 19.90€ on GOG and Humble. That's quite a difference.

pingvinThe only thing I want when commenting about nVidia or AMD is to show that opinion of AMD fanboys doesn't need to be understood as the true.
Fixed it for you. Well, not the grammar but the fact that anyone's opinion is nothing but an opinion. Having owned both AMD and Nvidia hardware recently, my own opinion is that both are perfectly fine for a Linux gamer these days. AMD obviously wins on the driver support / Linux-friendliness front simply because of their investment in Mesa and the FOSS drivers, but Nvidia's hardware does still offer more performance per watt/buck, if that's your main concern. In day-to-day desktop/gaming use there's very little difference for most Linux users. New games tend to work with both, and keeping the drivers updated is just about as easy on both sides of the fence.

pingvinAfter reading comments on Linux gaming forums, some people can decide that buying AMD is better choice and it's doing a lot of damage to Linux OS.
Buying AMD hardware is a perfectly sensible choice for a Linux gamer these days. As a nice bonus it shows that we are willing to support companies that play nice and participate in the open source process.

Supergiant Games now have Bastion, Transistor and Pyre up on itch.io

HadBabitsI never finished Bastion and Transistor. They both have beautiful craft in them, but for some reason they were the kind of game that when I put down I just never felt like picking back up. Love Pyre, though.
I guess I might need to give Pyre a chance after all. I also lost interest in both Bastion and Transistor before finishing, even though I enjoyed the art and can't really pinpoint any particular faults in the gameplay either.

devnullWhich looks quite odd not only because of the version but I don't get popups about it. Maybe 2 means opted out? Considering I don't use windows at all that could be at least a year of not being counted.
I got it just yesterday. I tend to get it maybe one to three times per year.
I believe I've gotten it once since Steam came to Linux. Perhaps twice.
Maybe every geographical area gets a set amount, relative to the population user base. Maybe you don't often happen to run Steam when the survey is being conducted during the first few days of any given month? (I've only ever gotten it on the first day of a month.) Maybe you're just unlucky? Could be anything.

"SurveyDate" "2019-05-01"
"SurveyDateType" "3"

No idea what the different types mean.

By the way, I'm not convinced our using Linux has anything to do with how often we're selected to participate. I know it seems so from all the anecdotal evidence we hear on GOL, but that could be confirmation bias. I don't see why Valve would want to intentionally skew the results, especially to make the Linux user base seem smaller than it is. We'll just have to accept that we're a small minority on steam.

toojaysI can't figure out where the download link for Gone Home is. When I click on the "Gone Home" picture on the Trove page it just pops up the trailer video. What am I missing?
