Looks very interesting. I probably give it a try.

The fast-paced free shooter 'Xonotic' is now available as a Flatpak package for easy install

GustyGhostInstalling it through the itch client is good enough for me. Flatpaks don't auto-update themselves, do they?

They should through gnome-software.

NVIDIA pushed out two new Linux drivers recently with 396.45 and 390.77

I hope this will finally solve the issue with whitelist I have.
So I don't have to rebuild kmod on every start.

Some thoughts on Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War

QuoteYou wouldn't really expect the Space Marines to sit around a table with the Necrons (a race of robotic skeletal warriors) now would you?

Unfortunately this is already in one Warhammer 40k codex. It was between Blood Angels and Necrons (probably Sautekh dynasty) against Tyranids.

GnailzHey, New Bro here o/

I have to say so far this game is absolutely fantastic. I don't even know what more to say, that pretty much sums it up. Haven't had a single crash so far, though I have only had time to put in 4 or 5 hours thus far. It runs smooth as silk on the highest 1080p settings and huge maps. I realize this is more hardware dependent and is only to indicate I'm pushing the game engine. Definitely challenging gameplay with lots of customization features down to random seed generation. I have yet to actually fight an A.I. opponent because even on very low wildlife density they're still EVERYWHERE and constantly causing some sort of trouble. Furthermore, I was never really a fan of how diplomacy is generally handled in 4x games so Slitherine's choice to remove that "feature?" was a good one (LEAVE ME ALONE GHANDI!).

Battle on Brothers!


I was part of the beta testing and it was really stable even in the beta. I encountered only few crashes through whole beta.

RedfaceBe aware that when you buy it directly from Slitherine that you have to specify somewhere that you want the Linux version, I did buy for PC and that turns out to be the Windows version only. I have contacted their support and hopefully they change it for me.
I was wrong, you have to register the game on their site and then get both steam key and the Linux and Windows downloads.
And they even replied on a Sunday:-)

I had the same issue, didn't know I need to register it on their page.

SwiftpawOh my god thank you, have been going "well I want to send them some money for this, but GOG or Steam? I want GOG, but their refund policy is horrible". Is the DRM-free copy provided by GOG or is it straight from their website? If it was straight from them I assume it'd be just like the GOG version except possibly without GOG's installer?

It is downloaded directly from their website.

kshadeIt runs nicely, played it a bit yesterday, but I had to delete ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/pinned_libs_64/ because it's too old for the game to run. Using the current Steam beta client.

Plays like a combination of the type of old-school tactics game Slytherine makes and Civ.
I played the Steam version whole Beta test and didn't have this issue.

ZlopezYou can also grab it from Slitherine shop (Steam key included).

Do you get a DRM-free version there?

As far as I know, you will also get download link for DRM free version.
