  • Supercharge Steam with SteamTinkerLaunch (stl)

    Linux users and gamers often want to make tweaks, whether it is to squeeze the last bit of performance out of a machine, mod it, or just play around to see what you can do (or see how it breaks). You might say we are tinkerers. And with a wealth of tools at our disposal for Linux gaming, from Lutris, WINE, Steam, Proton, mods…there’s a lot to do and keep track of.

    Enter SteamTinkerLaunch (aka stl), a tool that does nearly everything you can think of, and then more. We recently interviewed the creator, frostworx, all about it. While the Readme and wiki have everything and is quite detailed, one look at the wiki pages will tell you there is a lot.

    So I present to you a quick getting started guide for SteamTinkerLaunch. I’ll walk you through getting set up and the basics, along with some examples of what you can do with stl. Recently I’ve been using stl to enable gamemode for my games, play with post-processing effects, and even to try out regular flat games in VR, all of which I’ll go through below.

    This guide is geared a bit more towards beginner Linux gamers and/or those just hearing about stl, but I hope that more experienced users who may be overwhelmed by stl will also find this useful. (I also helped sort the giant Readme into wiki form over on GitHub, yet still learn something every time I open stl.)

  • Crusader Kings III gets another nice free update with AI & Warfare Improvements

    Paradox are continuing to expand the excellent Crusader Kings III with another free update out now, which expands the game in a few nice ways. Usually, Paradox do big feature releases free along with DLC. This time around though, it seems a bunch of the changes simply could not wait and so CKIII 1.4 is out now for all players.


    What's above is only some of the bigger main additions. There's tons of balance changes, and a healthy dose of AI improvements to that should make for much more interesting games like children and grandchildren now being married off by "their liege if their liege is their parent or grandparent and is allowed to marry on their own" and all vassals can now declare war "no matter how deep down in the vassal tree they are".

  • Turns out some Valheim events weren't happening as expected so prepare for more now

    Valheim is an epic game, selling multiple millions and clearly loved by many. Another fresh fixer-upper update is out now, which has some curious fixes.

    The developers say that there should have been more in-world events, however they almost never happened and certainly not as expected. Iron Gate AB now say to expect to see "You are being hunted…" and "The horde is attacking" to brighten up your day. I've seen the horde attacking probably twice but never the hunted event so that will be interesting.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
