Solus news lets you use SteamVR with Nvidia cards

New version of Solus

We have been telling you for a long time that Solus would become a rolling release distribution, a distribution that automatically updated without releasing versions or development images. This is continuing and one of the project leaders recently communicated the distribution news.

Solus MATE will receive a new version of its Brisk Menu, a menu that uses the distribution for the official flavor with the MATE desktop. This new version brings some improvements oriented to the user experience and fixes some bugs that the application has.

But more important is the Nvidia driver update. This update allows users to can use the SteamVR application and graphics acceleration with their Nvidia cards. Something that until now was quite difficult for many users who wanted to have Steam and had an nvidia card.

SteamVR can now work on computers with Nvidia and Solus as the operating system

The kernel of the distribution becomes version 4.9.29 and for the first time MariaDB is included, the free database that many distributions and web applications have used and have had for a long time. Along with the incorporation of new packages, Solus has included a new version of its Software Center. A version in which the actuation elements are improved to improve the user experience and performance. The Control + F key combination has also been added to display a search engine and help us find applications or information about it. And if you don't have Solus, you can always go through the official website to get a fresh install image.

With this we see how Solus continues to develop and is more alive than ever but it is true that we still don't know anything about new versions of Budgie Desktop, the Solus desk that has become so popular. A version that was expected for the month of April and that was delayed until October, but it seems that such a thing will take time to arrive or maybe not?
