In theory, primusrun is preferred over optirun for performance and stability, as recommended by the bumblebee devs. I'm unsure why you get the results you did. I know in some cases, frames are capped, but that doesn't seem to be the case for you. (In my case I get 150 fps for optirun glxspheres64 and 60 fps for primusrun glxspheres64, which I believe is due ...

In a terminal: steam --reset This will provide a clean install for the client, but leave all your games untouched. Be aware that although this will "fix" your connection issue, it's akin to buying a new car to fix a flat tire. There is probably a simpler and more elegant solution, but I wasn't able to find one when I had this problem.

Better yet, just install the Steam package provided in the non-free repository hosted on Debian's infrastructure: add i386 sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 edit /etc/apt/sources.list to enable contrib and non-free; the jessie line should look something like (the URL will be different) deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib non-free (...

TL;DR Create the .desktop file with contents, the Steam Id of Project Hospital is 868360, you can see this number inside the Steam link, e.g.: https://store.steampowered.com/app/868360/Project_Hospital/ [Desktop Entry] Name=[replace with the game name] Exec=steam steam://rungameid/[replace with a number = Steam Id of the game] Icon=[replace with a path to ...

To install and run Windows games using Steam and Wine, you need to install Steam in Wine. You need to download the Steam client for Windows, install it using Wine, and connect to your Steam account. (You won't be able to run both the Linux and Windows clients simultaneously.) Then you'll have access to your Windows games from the Steam client running in Wine,...

You need to enable the i386 architecture: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo apt update Then install the 32-bit package: sudo apt install libx11-6:i386

Yes, you don't want to go ahead with that install. It is trying to pull a bunch of unrelated stuff. You could do a backport. The build requirements look pretty modest, so it will probably work. apt-cache showsrc steam has Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 9), libxcb1, libxau6, libx11-6, libxdmcp6, python-dev See How can I install more recent versions of ...

fc-cache -v | grep -i err will give you an error too at line 78 (for me). What it turned out to be was that the <matrix> element in /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf has 2 <name> elements when it should only have one. Doing: sudo nano "/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf" and removing the extra line that reads: <name>...

I installed lib32-nvidia-.. and it helped

I have some pointers for you that should help you out. You should first read the Official Kali Linux Documentation to help you if you run into any issues. If not then you should google the specifics of your issue, including the exact error message. Someone else has probably ran into a similar problem as you and has either asked the question and received an ...

This solution works fine on Debian and Kali-Linux in 64bits and for ATI/AMD GPU. (From scratch) Download steam_latest.deb, and you need to install some dependencies for steam and so Steam itself : sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install zenity zenity-common libgl1-mesa-dri build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) sudo dpkg -i steam_latest.deb Try here ...

You need to download the Steam installer for Windows, install that using Wine, then run Steam itself using Wine. From there you’ll be able to run your Windows games (those that work with Wine), although you might not be able to buy any (for me, the library works, but not the store — that’s not much of an issue in general though since the store web site works ...

I've solved the problem by installing the lib32-nvidia-utils package.

You can use steamcmd for this (it’s packaged in Debian’s non-free repositories and in Ubuntu’s multiverse): steamcmd +apps_installed +quit will list all installed applications with their id, and steamcmd +app_uninstall appid +quit will uninstall the application matching the given id; add -complete before the id for a complete uninstall.

Yes. An example illustrates creating an ext3 subvolume underneath ZFS. #mkfs -t ext3 -L lun4 /dev/zvol/zpool12_3/lun4

In versions of Fedora prior to 28 you could use the negativo17 repo but since Fedora 28 the 3rd party repos that are included with Fedora now include one that has Steam packages. This was mentioned on this Fedora page in the wiki titled: Workstation/Third Party Software Repositories, specifically in this section of the page titled: Restricted Inclusions. ...

This is an easy to fix bug, please see the 7th entry on my blog post about fixing common Steam on Debian Linux problems: http://www.yannbane.com/2013/02/how-to-steam-on-linux-debian-70.html. Solution: Right click on desktop Create launcher... Start writing "Steam" into the name box, and then select it from the suggestion. Create Try to run it! I doesn't ...

First you have to enable multi-arch support: $ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 After that run sudo apt-get update, and then you can install i386 packages.

This problem is caused by the faulty libdrm-intel package, version 2.4.58-2 to be exact. Downgrading to 2.4.56-1 (and installing the dependencies, unfortunately) fixes the problem. The packages can be downloaded from here (this is from the official debian server, no need to worry). Don't forget to download both i386 and amd64 packages if you are using ...

To unbrick a SteamController, or to just change its firmware, plug it via USB while keeping the Right Trigger down. A new USB device will appear (called "CRP DISABLD"). There, you will find a file: firmware.bin. You can replace it with a new (and working) firmware. On Windows, you can copy the new file over the old one. On a Linux box, instead, you have ...

You should install the missing 32 bit version of libGL.so.1. For nvidia, that would be in the package libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386. If you haven't already done so, you also need to add the i386 architecture to your debian system with dpkg --add-architecture i386 You may also need to install libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 and/or glx-diversions if they aren't already ...

The process/workaround here might help solve your issue.

After doing some research and some trying myself, I found a fairly easy fix, that made the package install and steam running. First of all you need the client, if you haven't already: $ wget http://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam_latest.deb Once you got the client downloaded, try to install the steam_latest.deb package. In CLI as well as ...

First we download the latest Steam package: wget --continue http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/archive/precise/steam_latest.deb Then we update apt cache: sudo apt update And install the Steam package with apt: sudo apt install ./steam_latest.deb After you first run Steam and agree to EULA, it will check for additional packages needed: Steam needs to ...

You have to enable the i386 architecture first $ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 && sudo apt-get update Then you should be able to install the desired packages

Your SD card is mounted with the noexec option (or perhaps user, which includes noexec). You need to remount it with the exec option explicitly; you might find it easiest to add an entry to /etc/fstab with the appropriate options (user,exec should do the trick).


2

The official method works fine, at least for packages which have been backported (which include Wine but not Steam). Add the backports repository: echo deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch-backports main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/stretch-backports.list sudo apt update then you can install backported packages by adding -t stretch-backports to ...

How about Xephyr: $ Xephyr :1 -ac -screen 800x600 $ DISPLAY=:1 startfluxbox

The solution for this issue is simply make a symlink to libcurl.so.4 from DiRT Rally/lib/x86_64. The command exactly is this: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libcurl.so.4 [...]/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/DiRT Rally/lib/x86_64/libcurl.so.4

Note: This is the system I've developed for my own use and I just thought I'd share it with you guys Q&A style. If someone's come up with a different system, please by all means post your answer. In addition to all the Compiz stuff, you'll need xdotools, it's kind of like the Autohotkey of Linux. It will allow you to send hotkey combos from the shell ...
