EasyOS version 2.2.5 released

The previous official release was 2.2. What is new is mostly work on the infrastructure. This includes hardware-profiling for video and sound, to automatically handle booting of a USB-stick on different computers, or plugging in different cards on the same computer. There has also been a lot of work on Bluetooth, in particular to support sound, such as Bluetooth speakers and earbuds. Read more

Linux needs easier bug reporting tools

I get that developers need specific information for bug reports, but in many cases, the extraction of that information is beyond the pay grade of the average user. Take, for instance, the backtrace. The backtrace command is a powerful tool that allows the user to start an application while gathering specific information about why a program might not be running properly. This is not a command built for the new user. I've been using Linux since the late 1990s and I have to remind myself how the tool is used (because I don't use it often). Read more

Games: Starcom: Nexus, Wild Woods, Shrine

  • Wx3 Labs continue polishing the Linux Beta of Starcom: Nexus - it's looking good

    After getting a Linux Beta build back in December, the open-world space action and adventure game Starcom: Nexus continues getting polished up for Linux support. The developer provided a key, so I took a look to see how the Linux version was running and it's fantastic. I've yet to come across any issues with it. As a massive fan of space, the possibility of aliens and sci-fi tech Starcom: Nexus definitely ticks a lot of the right boxes and the story reminds me of Star Trek: Voyager.

  • You can now nominate games for the GamingOnLinux GOTY Award

    It's finally here! We're bringing back the GamingOnLinux GOTY Awards we did a few years ago, so it's time to get nominating. How it usually works is we have this dedicated GOTY Page, you pick a category and then search for a game in the box at the top to nominate it in that category. You can nominate as many as you wish, as long as they fit within the category. Once enough time has passed we will then lock down nominations, clear up any in the wrong place and open it for voting in around a week or two.

  • Wild Woods, a free couch co-op action game about defending a moving wagon

    Currently free on itch.io while it's not finished, Wild Woods resembles Unrailed! a little in that you're protecting a moving vehicle but it does it in a rather different way. Playable by yourself or with up to three others (1-4 players), you will be running alongside your wagon as it travels through a dangerous forest. During the daytime you can collect resources, which will be vital for surviving the night. When the sun goes down, bandits come out and attack. As you progress, you get to do a few upgrades on your wagon and overall it's a real sweet game to try out.

  • Shrine, a total conversion of Doom II has you slaying Eldritch abominations

    Regular readers will know by now that I love a good first-person shooter, I also keep an eye on fun mods and entire conversions of Doom. Shrine is another recent discovery, sending you into the Eldritch depths of hell. Shrine is inspired by Lovecraftian horror, so it's very much styled as you would expect with seriously freaky looking enemy types. It has 8 brand new weapons, 13 enemies to blast into the next dimension, 16 levels that are surprisingly challenging and a ton of custom textures/sounds and more.
