No U.S.A. chant from the audience on the landing of Falcon 9's Stage 1 #THAICOM8 , I feel a bit robbed 😛 It's as if landing rockets has become a norm. Dammit #SpaceX ! 😃

Running Steam on Linux just got better, thanks to the Solus Project!

And for my next trick...

Announcing linux-steam-integration.

Linux Steam Integration, or LSI, is a configurable shim I've developed to solve the issue of the Steam runtime. With this shim, one may force Steam to run in 32-bit mode, to combat issues such as seen with the latest CS:GO 64-bit update, as well as to enable or disable the Steam runtime at will.

The shim binary is extremely lightweight and completely leak-free, and is designed to be used in place of the existing /usr/bin/steam, meaning adopters must move the existing Steam binary elsewhere.

This will be expanded in future to address further limitations in the Steam client, in order to bring per-game runtime configuration settings, as well as steadily removing Steam's requirement for it's own SDL libraries.

The repo is on GitHub, and in the next few hours I'll cut a 0.1 release. It's designed to be distro-agnostic, and to finally address the headaches we've put up with for so long now, such as setting the LD_PRELOAD or LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

With this new shim, we can even run Steam with its own runtime without doing any hacks, and letting LSI take care of it for us.

Really happy to see +Ikey Doherty  helping make gaming on Linux easier for everyone and doing so in a way that is approachable to any user, not just techies like myself.

It's easy to just create a solution that helps address an issue in your own ecosystem, it is much bolder, thoughtful, and difficult to create one that any ecosystem can adopt and benefit from.

+Jorge Castro in which case the user can switch back to the Steam runtime, and we can work on resolving the issue ourselves :)

Man, that is one helluva difference.
 
Huge difference in font rendering already with the native runtime over Steam's runtime

One does not merely look at the Rust menu and not do more thorough "testing" -- Under #Solus
