Half of these I don't know what they even mean. Not even half, just all of them is confusing to me :L

It's Linux, so don't feel bad if you're slightly confused. Hey jvert, what do you think about adding a guide to some of these SteamOS/Linux terms so users can more easily participate in discussions? It might help, but it's just a thought.

I don't suppose there's any thoughts in Valve adding support for the Sony Dual Shock 4 (DS4) controller for the PS4 is there? It's become a very popular controller for gamers to use under Windows, especially as a lot of people got a PS4 with 2 controllers for example.

Over the coming years, I suspect the 360 controller sales will taper off (for PC gamers) and the DS4 will become the defacto PC gaming controller. Any thoughts?

I doubt it. Don't underestimate the luxury of having a controller that does not need a special adapter/receiver to use. I like to be able to just stick it in with no issues or expenses.

The supposed de facto standard is going to be the Valve's official controller. I really haven't heard of DS4 becoming "popular" under Windows, specially since recently Microsoft started offering support for the Xbox One controller.

Anyway if this is supposed to be a gaming-oriented Linux distribution, there are some packages like: apache2, mysql, samba and others, that does not seem to be very gaming-oriented to me. I mean, I understand they may be there as dependencies for other packages (I think), but on time they may interfere in performance if they are running in background all the time while you play games

I'll give this release a try and report back. Luckily, now I have a dedicated machine just for this :tgrin:

A package installed doesn't necessary mean it runs all the time, only when it is needed by something. For example samba is needed for local network sharing, but won't be used (and loaded) most of the time.

The PS4 controller works in SteamOS it's just i can't get it working in any games out of the box

Install "sixad daemon"

People have reported this fix that works for Bluetooth works on both the DS3 and DS4... may require remapping in Steam

There's also reports that the DS4 via USB wired works perfectly too... may require remapping in Steam

Agreed, my Logitech F710 is the most hopeless peice of trash I've ever bought, I regret not getting a wired 360 controller. The dongle that this comes with is fucking pathetic.

I wish Logitech just release a new Wireless controller.

Thanks for that - I know it works quite well while wired - but the wireless / BT stuff is a bit more tricky.

I'm ordering a new Asus specific BT-400 dongle, it's apparently the "bees knees" when it comes to Windows based DS4 support - although rumour has it this BT chipset has crappy linux support (or did late last year) - hopefully it's been fixed now.

I'd like to see the DS4 work much better with steam (and to be fair, the Xbox One controller) - long term the 360 controller WILL die out - we need a new defacto controller for the PC now and ideally one that's sold with millions of consoles and used as a backup controller for gamers on their console / PC (interchangable) makes complete sense to me.

Long story short, the more official DS4 support, the better!

Logically yeah Valves official controller will become defacto at least within Steam - but Valve need to be realistic. There's already 15 million PS4's out there and many of us own more than 1 controller. There could be 20 million+ DS4 controllers out in the wild - on a console which should last 5 to 7 more years.

Ignoring the DS4 is just going to get people whining at them.
Also, yes MS has beaten Sony to the support punch but they've screwed up the Xbox One support in that it's cabled only, there's no "official USB wireless adapter" for the Xbox One on PC yet, unlike the 360 controller.

I wouldn't say the DS4 is defacto yet at all either but there's support growing rapidly and 360 support will infact dwindle as the console dies out (know of many OG Xbox or PS2 controller users on PC?)
DS4 currently works on PC (mostly) in an emulated 360 mode too, so it works with any 360 based game - only thing missing is analogue buttons from the DS3 - but about 4 games ever used those.
