Have just spent my lunchtime working on getting an old game running and have found the arcane mix of Steam/Proton settings that let me re-experience it in a way few have been able to for decades.
Very excited, and head running away with itself writing article after article: I'll definitely be posting my settings on Steam and ProtonDB for other users to follow. Check back later on today!
[Update] That, plus I've just noticed the AUR has the latest Nvidia drivers. I'm hoping these might sort out some of the horrendous crashing issues I've been having with Cyberpunk but that will have to wait until this evening.

@Myrrdin You mean setting RADV_PERFTEST=rt?
I didn't have to do it, perhaps Proton Experimental does it?
By the way, RT will be enabled by default in mesa 23.2 which will be released soon:
My laptop with Fedora Rawhide is already running Mesa 23.2.0rc3 on Intel.
Llevo casi 30 horas de juego en Horizon Zero Dawn, no es malo, pero llega a ser aburrido en algunas partes, y eso de que los recursos para ciertos avances sean muy raros de conseguir fastidia un poco, pero en lo general es muy divertido. Y visualmente es espectacular, toda una aventura visual.

Another interesting video from "By Default". It's pretty cool how he just suddenly appeared and made cool video after cool video 👀
And fuck now I'm kinda wondering if I should consider migrating at least a few things away from Gmail :thinking__ai:

Did you all hear about this?
If Microsoft's buyout of Activision goes through, they may end up having a legal obligation to make sure that Activision games run well on Proton.
It almost makes me wish this acquisition goes well too! 🤯

#Proton has developed a new CAPTCHA system that prioritizes privacy, usability, accessibility, and security. The system, which is compliant with #GDPR regulations, uses censorship-resistant technologies, visual challenges, and a computational proof of work.
Proton has just developed and released its own CAPTCHA alternative, with a focus on privacy, but without compromising Security or accessibility. This sounds promising, here's hoping it sees wide adoption.
Click through for more details and specifics of their design goals and implementation.
A password manager by Swiss-based company #Proton is still storing unencrypted data, including credit card numbers and security codes. Patch is on the way.

GE-Proton 8-15 release fixes Mafia Definitive Edition https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2023/09/ge-proton-8-15-release-fixes-mafia-definitive-edition/
Me descargué de manera gratuita la primera parte del juego "Raji: An Ancient Epic", un prólogo que te permite jugar un capítulo del juego llamado, "Raji: Prologue", y es muy bonito, lo recomiendo bastante, se puede jugar #Linux con #proton
Raji: An Ancient Epic es una aventura de acción ambientada en la antigua India. La historia comienza con el conflicto en ciernes entre los demonios y los dioses.
Visualmente, es muy hermoso y la jugabilidad muy intuitiva.
Proton Mail had broken up the family plan into individual e-mail accounts.
1 was still paid, 1 was downgraded to free, and 1 was simple "gone" (no longer existed).
This, they told everyone, was an upgrade in how they would do business. 🙄
They have since brought back the family plan as a sign-up option, but I would not trust Proton for anything.
Especially after how they treated us. They silenced any negative feedback on both Facebook and Reddit.
I am told, Tutanota, is a good e-mail provider, but I can never remember their name (much less pronounce it).
Is it pronounced:
Too ta no ta ?
That said, it is not rememberable. For all the flaws Proton has, which I do not recommend (they'll take your money and run), at least their name is rememberable.
This is it guys! The bash script that can destroy any Unity Dev! I wrote it in 2 mins and don't even know Bash! Succumb to my will now you filthy peasant!
steamcmd app_run 123456

To be honest, I dislike the fact I now have to click, settings and the all settings, when i just want to go to all settings. The "quick settings" is not a something I need more direct access to.
What I would like to see however, is more views, like a "3-weeks" overview. That I really miss.
Proton Mail Vulnerabilities Would Allow Attackers to Steal Emails:
Has anyone else experienced problems with launching Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night on #SteamDeck
It's supposed to be Playable on Steam Deck but won't launch at all for me, it just hangs with the #steam logo on screen.
I've tried different #proton versions, verified the installed data and also checked there wan't any hidden windows in the background (there wasn't as far as i could see).

Okay, just realized that Proton Pass will gladly suggest login info for you but then doesn't save the passwords that it generates. Currently changing like 10 passwords... not thrilled. Not sure if thats normal or it's an issue with the Firefox extension. Either way, super annoying.

@protonmail Thanks! I know that sieve filters can be used for this purpose - I indeed do use them for this purpose.
However, my problem is that I cannot one-click add emails TO a sieve that I have created DIRECTLY from my email inbox.
There's an option to "Always send emails to this location" but when I do that it just creates a whole new filter! And that's really annoying, because there is no easy way to work with multiple filters. It takes a lot of copy/pasting.
If Proton can make it easy to add emails to EXISTING sieve filters, that would be a real boon.

For all the "political" issues around stuff like NVIDIA's drivers, and Wayland vs X11, and all that, Linux gaming has never been in as good a state as it is today.
I'm in that place where I have too many amazing games to play and I can't decide which one to spend my time on.
Armored Core 6 stream some time? c.c
Ugh, @protonmail is missing some serious quality of life features, such as the ability to add emails directly to a sieve filter (you can only select "Always move sender's emails" which just creates a whole NEW filter. That might not be a massive deal except that Proton only allows for 100 active filters at the paid level.
Not feeling especially inspired by this service after two months of use, to be honest. It's a pretty expensive option for a large drop in use experience over mainstream programs.
@n8 I see no reason today why archive formats like music and video should use proprietary formats. Games unfortunately are a more complex issue and we're not at a stage where open source game engines can keep up with the technical evolution of proprietary hardware.
However, it would be very interesting to see older games re-released with open and free licences.
I’m old now, so I don’t get to play many hours anymore, but I’m just amazed how easy it is now.
Anything I want to play is not only supported, but plays exactly as good (or better) than it does on windows.
Zero issues with playing in HiDPI. Everything plays in 5K with no problems, even stuff released in the last two weeks.
Steam UI still needs a workaround for HiDPI, but it’s straightforward enough to add a parameter at launch. Once you’re in a game, there’s no difference.

One of the reason I'm so much into the #SteamDeck and #Proton is because I kinda see Windows as a $140 game launcher and I'm certain a lot of people think like me that it is outrageously expensive for a damn launcher
Do we really need Cortana and other fancy features in our launcher? No. But we pay for the entire damn thing anyway
Ever since I got my free Warty Warthog Ubuntu 4.10 CD in the mail (still had dial-up ~2005), I've had at least one laptop in the house with #Linux on it. I've changed distros over the years but my usecase was pretty much the same -- browse the web, IRC, and email.
I've always been a PC gamer, having a dedicated desktop running the current version of #Windows so I could always play whichever games I wanted.
I hardly mixed gaming and Linux, though I did experiment with Wine a few times in the late 2000's, World of Warcraft and Supreme Commander being the two I remember working decently via PlayOnLinux.
After owning a #SteamDeck for several months, I've realized I haven't encountered any major issues running games I typically play via #Proton. In fact, I was playing more on the SteamDeck than I was on my desktop because of the convenience.
Upon realizing this, I was inspired to ditch Windows and install Linux on my dedicated gaming desktop as the only operating system. Thanks to the resources and hard work by Valve, CodeWeavers and all the contributors & community, it's been a pleasant experience.
Over the last couple of weeks I've been playing the latest games including #DiabloIV and #BaldursGate3 with minimal difficulty. I know I'll run into issues at some point, but with sites like https://www.protondb.com/ there's at least some level of confidence that the hurdles can be solved by the community.
#Proton Mail plug: "Tracking pixels and cookies aren’t the only way companies spy on you. Tracking links in emails tell the sender what emails you opened and what you clicked.
With our Tracking Links Protection feature, we now detect and clean known tracking links, directing you safely to the web page without surveillance. Proton Mail is the first email service to offer this level of protection because we believe your inbox belongs to you."
Worth checking out. https://pr.tn/ref/X0672A01A08G

Hat hier jemand ein #VPN von #Proton unter #Linux am Laufen? Sofern ich mal eine Verbindung bekomme, ist das halbwegs stabil aber ich bekomme nach Start der App für mehrere Minuten nicht mal einen Login, geschweige denn einen Connect.

Forgot to make this public, so I'm re-posting:
People talk about #GamingOnLinux like it's such a new thing…
There was a company 20+ years ago (Loki Software) that chiefly ported games to linux (commercially).
There was also a wine-based #Proton-like compatibility layer called (IIRC) #CrossOver. I think it was actually an "open core" system, where sales of the software helped fund #Wine and/or older versions/portions of the software was released as source for wine.
Keeping Fediverse users informed would be sensible IMO - if this is the real #Proton? Surely an organisation dedicated to #privacy & #security would be concerned to provide link #verification of identity at least:
- or to host Mastodon on your own domain as suggested here:
Le #darkweb (ou #DarkNet) peut avoir la mauvaise réputation d'être un repère de criminels, mais le «Dark» signifie qu'il vous fournit une protection de la #ViePrivée. De nombreux sites #Web réputés se trouvent sur le Darkweb, comme par exemple le New York Times et le Guardian.
Dans cet excellent article de #Proton, découvrez comment le Darkweb vous protège réellement :
Open-source & encrypted password manager
Keep your login credentials secure with Proton Pass, a free and fully end-to-end encrypted password manager.
- Secure, unique passwords for each site
- Quick autofill for swift logins
- Encrypted notes & hide-my-email
- End-to-end encrypted data, including metadata
- Integrated 2FA & safe credit card storage
WTF? Proton has a sale going on, giving Proton Unlimited for 8,99 EUR/month. But since I've already chosen to pay for @protonmail for a long time, I can't use this promotion, and have to pay 12.99 EUR/month for the same product. That seems like a pretty shitty way to thank long-time customers to me. #Proton
@protonmail Just signed up for the Family Plan and is very excited about it :)
Question that I haven't found the answer for (yet): My wife’s favorite calendar app in iOS is WeekCal (for some reason). Can she make her own ProtonCalendar and then view and edit it in WeekCal? As far as I can see it collects it’s data from Settings —> Calendar —> Accounts.
@firstname.lastname@example.org faut leur demander ;-) j'ai débuté avec @email@example.com et puis le VPN, et puis le gestionnaire de mots de passe parce que 1Password va abandonner l'appli d'origine que j'aimais bien pour ne plus offrir que l'appli en nuage et pour ça, j'ai plus confiance à #Proton.
Als je je #internetveiligheid wilt verbeteren zonder dat het je iets kost, dan beveel ik je van harte #Proton aan. Voor e-mail, cloud opslag, wachtwoord manager, agenda en een prima VPN verbinding. Helemaal gratis en encrypted.
Liever direct een maand gratis de Plus versie proberen? Gebruik dan deze Refer a friend-link: https://pr.tn/ref/BG2KDCHS0SH0
Hey @protonmail! It looks like your Drive Plus plan has the highest annual subscription price per GB amongst similar #E2EE #CloudStorage solutions: 24 cents/GB, compared to Tresorit's 14 cents/GB and Sync.com's 5 cents/GB.
Would you consider increasing the storage available on your plans while keeping current prices?
400-500 GB for Drive Plus and 1 TB for #Proton Unlimited would look fairer to me 🙂
