SteamLink for Raspberry Pi Released



  • @psyke83 I installed the complete xorg package (which turned out to be the legacy one) at one time but never enabled GL. The only xorg stuff I have installed now are through whatever the steamlink app installs.

  • Problem solved for real. Not sure what it was since I got sick of changing permissions for xorg-related folders with no results. I changed the dev folder's permission and everything in it and that did it.



  • SteamLink was updated to 1.1.30:
    https://steamcommunity.com/app/353380/discussions/6/3362406825533076063/
    Will it be updated in RetroPie too?


  • Global Moderator

    @Swampy steamlink is installed from the Raspbian repositories, so whenever the update is released on their repositories, it will be available for update in RetroPie also.

    @mitu said in SteamLink for Raspberry Pi Released:

    @Swampy steamlink is installed from the Raspbian repositories, so whenever the update is released on their repositories, it will be available for update in RetroPie also.

    You're right - keeping in mind that, similar to the Linux .deb for steam, the package functions only as a bootstrapper to fetch the latest release during launch.

    Unfortunately, the bootstrapper also handles dependency resolution which usually requires user input to confirm via command-line when new packages are to be installed; the effect would be that you'd be stuck on the runcommand dialog.

    The new release doesn't seem to have this problem, but it can potentially happen in future. If/when it does, I'll add the dependencies to the scriptmodule.



  • @thezoof Hi, having the same issue, I am pretty newb when it comes to Rpi script editing , but I added "steamlink" and "streaming_client" to the list of emulators in the music.py, and have reset the system and disabled/enabled audio and no luck for me. How do I rerun the script? Thanks.



  • @r3ddvil

    I added "steamlink" and "streaming_client" to the list of emulators in the music.py

    I think it's just called "steam"



  • The controller doesn't work in emulationstation any more after exiting steamlink inside. This happens since the latest update of steamlink. I don't know weather it is a problem with RetroPie or steamlink. Steamlink installs new udev rules. Perhaps, this could be the problem.

    I mentioned the problem in the steamlink forum too:
    https://steamcommunity.com/app/353380/discussions/6/1737760710137252830/



  • For now I have downgraded to version 1.1.45.105:

    STEAMLINK_DATA_HOME="${XDG_DATA_HOME:-$HOME/.local/share}"/SteamLink
    echo "file://$STEAMLINK_DATA_HOME" >"$STEAMLINK_DATA_HOME/update_url"
    echo "http://media.steampowered.com/steamlink/rpi/steamlink-rpi3-1.1.45.105.tar.gz" >"$STEAMLINK_DATA_HOME/public_build.txt"
    

    seen in https://steamcommunity.com/app/353380/discussions/6/1660069015242109357/
    and in https://steamcommunity.com/app/353380/discussions/6/3681064390585946947/

    Then I also added " --skip-update" in the last line after "/usr/bin/steamlink" in "/opt/retropie/ports/steamlink/steamlink_xinit.sh".

    Now it works again for me.



  • The problem is solved with the newest version 1.1.50.
