I wanted to play “Guns of Icarus” so I installed Steam on Solus OS even though the Snaps version isn’t ready yet.  It’s supposed to integrate seamlessly when it is.  I’ve only tried the one game.  Everything seems a lot smoother than when I tried last year.
>sudo eopkg install steam

From the EULA I agreed to online, the PicoBrew C home brewing system I ordered for $399 on Black Friday utilizes a mix of Open Source and proprietary software (I’m guessing the base OS is Linux).  I will be here the middle of next week, may not be enough time for me to run a batch before next show.

I didn’t get MakuluLinux installed on either bare metal or a VM.  On second look, I did have a go with this years ago and it doesn’t look like it’s had an update in two years and the cert on the homepage seems to have expired since last show.  Finally, the nVidia GT730 I ordered only came today.

Failed to get quasselconf.py working on the Arch server, probably because it has QT dependencies and the server isn’t running X.  Had the bright idea of copying the config files from /var/lib/quassel to a shared folder and installing quasselconf on the Solus desktop:

>sudo eopkg install python3-devel
>sudo pip3 install quasselconf
>sudo pip3 install pyqt5
>quasselconf -c path-to-copied-config-files -t core
Which returns – a blank line
