About PSO2-NA

Just a note for anyone looking around the ruins here for old PSO players: Until a standalone installer is made available, I won't be playing PSO2, as I am a full-time Linux user and don't own an XBox. I MIGHT play if/when a downloadable installer becomes available that I could get working through WINE or […]

Sometimes, I don't know why I bother

So here we have the GLUON robot arm kickstarter, which looked like a pretty damn cool toy at an amazing price. Of course, it was too good to be true, and yet another kickstarter ends up being ruined with no recourse and no explanation from anyone involved. This officially puts my Kickstarter record at more […]

Static App Images Are Hard To Update

I was looking at anbox - a neat little program for running Android applications on Ubuntu - and was a bit unhappy to see that it was only supported on LTS releases, primarily because of kernel modules that aren't actually part of the snap package in which it's distributed. We're told that static images are […]

Shenmue 3 on Ubuntu

Runs good […]

That nasty Gnome-Shell bug's fixed

Check it. Should be in the regular archives soon; in the meantime, you can install the mutter kit from proposed and get the fixes that way too. I'm glad this one got fixed relatively fast, it wasn't just games that were affected. Firefox would hang, and take the desktop out with it. >:(

Stupid Linux Steam Tricks #312

Is a native game crashing? Would you like a log file? Go into the game's properties and set its launch options to: script -c "%command%" /home/YOURUSER/log.txt Make sure that YOURUSER is your actual home directory (obviously), or point the log file path wherever else you want.


Not only does it screw up debugging, it also makes it nearly impossible to play games that have some startup time associated with them. EDIT: It's getting fixed. Grr. Source: """ is not responding" dialog caused shell to become unresponsive (#1607) · Issues · GNOME / gnome-shell · GitLab
