  • 100% Orange Juice gets Steam Deck Verified thanks to supporting Steam Input | GamingOnLinux

    Here's another developer who upgraded their game ready for the Steam Deck, with the popular 100% Orange Juice. ICYMI: we're close to 2,000 titles rated either Verified or Playable.

    What is it? 100% Orange Juice is a digital multiplayer board game populated by developer Orange Juice's all-star cast. Characters from Flying Red Barrel, QP Shooting, Suguri and Sora come together with all-new characters to duke it out... with dice.

  • Portal 2: Desolation is looking great in the graphics overhaul | GamingOnLinux

    Portal 2: Desolation is an upcoming community-made Portal game, created by fans in tribute to Valve's iconic series and it's going to look pretty fancy.

    The team has been toiling away to push what they can do with the Source engine, and they've now "completely replaced" the rendering and lighting pipeline. They did this due to some issues with the way Source originally did it, and the new physically-based renderer gives them completely real-time lighting. They also get a lot more flexibility, enabling "lights to move and change color/intensity in the level, making it possible for us to choreograph more sophisticated, dynamic scenes with lighting". With this they also upgraded reflections, shadows, rebuilt some core Portal 2 assets to increase fidelity and much more. It's safe to say it's incredibly ambitious and hopefully players will enjoy it.

  • Slay the Spire fan expansion Downfall flips the game and lets you be the monsters | GamingOnLinux

    Downfall - A Slay the Spire Fan Expansion (the full name), is a bit of a mouthful but it's also spilling over the side with features. So much so, that it got a Steam release outside the workshop — you still need to own Slay the Spire though of course as it's a big mod.

  • Steam Deck closing in on 2,000 games rated Verified or Playable | GamingOnLinux

    Steam Deck is getting close to hitting a pretty big milestone, with nearly 2,000 games rated Verified or Playable. Considering it only released just over a month ago, it's a pretty sweet place to be for Valve's handheld.

    Not without issues though, with some games not really having the correct rating which Valve now wants feedback on with their new system. Still, it seems like the vast majority are being given a rating that fits in well.

  • The Dota 2 'Spring Cleaning' update for 2022 makes muting and reporting easier | GamingOnLinux

    Dota 2 has a very lively community, and sadly often you will come across some attitudes that just aren't friendly and now Valve has made it simpler to deal with them in-game.

    There's now a single button that gives you access to mute voice, text and report a player all from the same little screen. A very useful change. There's also a quick way to mute an entire team if they're a problem. It's a shame such things are needed but welcome changes from Valve there.

  • 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.
