I recently managed to get my vive working with steam in linux.

There are only a few games on steam that will work with vr + linux, but imo it's worth trying.

SteamVR runs smooth as butter. The night sky, chaperone bounds, and steam interface couldn't be smoother.

The trouble starts when trying to run anything else.

For example SteamVR Home. It lags like crazy and I see my load spike up to 16.

There is no issue when trying to run VR in Windows with the same hardware. So I know my hardware is capable of doing it.

I tried using renice to up the priority to -15, and it did run a little better, but not great.

Anyone have any luck with SteamVR?
