Welcome to the Linux Gamers group. This group is governed by people interested in using the Linux operating system for gaming or game creation. Since quite some time Linux is no more a niche product hostile to advanced and demanding games. With big companies like IDSoftware releasing their games also for Linux the interest and acceptance of this system has grown over time. In comparison to other systems Linux offers a couple of unique features as well as particularities and troubles when it gets down to gaming. It's the goal of this club to promote and support Linux gaming.


Let the games begin :D

I'm getting really tired of Desura mucking up on Linux. Bought two games today that worked fine as demos and then crashed/don't work after I bought the full version.

Please see:
Desura.com
and Desura.com

... if you would like Desura to be supported again in the latest Humble Indie Bundle.

Any alternative ideas are welcome! :)

I don't know how much good this will do, but I started a petition to protest the inclusion of a non-native game in a Humble Indie Bundle:
Ipetitions.com

Please add your signature. It is worded in a very constructive way and it seemed like the most civil way to get our point across.

For anybody who's excited by these sorts of things, I've just published a two part interview with two of the excellent fellows from Frozenbyte which covers developing Trine 2, their experiences with their first in-house Linux port, and what the future may hold.

It can be found here: Cheesetalks.twolofbees.com

Enjoy!

www.SteamForLinux.com

New community site about Steam for Linux and gaming on Linux generally. Here we want to unite all the Linux users wishing to play their Steam games on Linux. And of course this community site should be a message to Valve with a request for Steam client for Linux.
If you want to help please join us!

The client itself is not the main problem, the games are. If the game doesn't run on Linux then having steam on Linux doesn't help at all. One reason this didn't get anywhere so far.

I've tried Xfce on occasion in the past, but I could never get past the fact that the Thunar devs not only refuse to implement tabbed file management, but seem to take pride in it.

...so I got used to LXDE instead. Even lighter and PCManFM has tabs. It still has rough edges, but it serves me well.

The XFCE/Thunar devs are minimalists. They're terrified of one day becoming something like KDE.
