Linux Voice Introduction

Article from Issue 228/2019

This month in Linux Voice

Gaming on Linux is a mixed bag. Many users adore the native open source games, and a thriving retro-gaming community carries the torch for low-tech gems of the distant past. But for many hard-core gamers, Linux is just a little more trouble. First of all, many game developers don't bother with putting out a Linux version. Tools like Wine provide a measure of compatibility, but configurations can be tricky and often require extra effort. The Lutris open gaming platform smooths out the kinks for gaming on Linux. Lutris offers automatic access to free and open source games and also provides an interface for accessing games from GOG, Steam,, Origin, Uplay, and other gaming sources. In this month's LinuxVoice, we introduce you to Lutris. We'll also show you around McFly, an innovative utility that brings intelligent search to your Bash history, and we'll introduce you to some leading clients for the Mastodon free microblogging platform.
