  • Crypto Is Dead is the next title from The Moon Pirates that's a bit like Papers, Please | GamingOnLinux

    Crypto Is Dead, well, not quite but it's a fun name for a game. In development by The Moon Pirates (Don't Forget Me), it's inspired somewhat by Papers, Please.

    It's a mix of simulation and puzzle game in which you will have to make your bank grow during 30 days. To do so, you will have to check some bills and find out if they are genuine or fake. During your month of work, you will accumulate money, pay taxes and keep up with the central bank by updating your tools. On Twitter, the developer confirmed Linux support.

  • American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2 get an online Convoy mode

    SCS Software has released the latest big free upgrades now for both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator which includes the new online Convoy mode.

    In this new multiplayer mode players can set up and host their own private sessions (password optional) to drive with their friends or other fellow truckers. There is currently support for synchronized AI traffic, time and weather, and the ability to take the same job as other players. However, there's a number of things not currently supported like mods, AI vehicles may vanish when a player leaves, lifting bridges aren't yet synchronized and Steam invites only work through the Overlay. It''s a very fun sounding start though and a natural evolution for both games.

  • Steam on a Chromebook could be closer than we think, with an AMD dGPU model coming | GamingOnLinux

    Thanks to new info spotted by Chrome Unboxed, we've seen more hints of a more powerful Chromebook coming which would make for a reasonable gaming unit.

    We've known for some time now that Google has been planning to get Steam on Chromebooks properly, however most existing models would lack the power needed. In the new report it seems Google are working towards a new Intel and AMD powered Chromebook with an AMD Vega 12 discrete graphics card unit (dGPU). This would definitely change things and if it arrives in time for Google's wider Steam plans, it means there would be another Linux-based device out there from a huge company capable of Linux gaming (either native Linux games or with Steam Play Proton).

  • SkateBIRD returns with another demo available until July 18 for PAX Online | GamingOnLinux

    Want do you get when you cross skateboarding with cute little birds flapping around? SkateBIRD is the answer.

    Funded on Kickstarter originally back in 2019 with close to $70K, it's a promising and somewhat hilarious skating game and now you've got a fresh chance to try it out. The demo has once again returned, and it seems to give been updated too since last I played it.

  • 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.
