Hey guys ! The node Warnings doesn't block the usage of the app, don't worry.

After the installation, you may experience issues as the app does not support NVIDIA GPU right now, and moreover needs a good VA API installation. This can't be done on this package, that is why a tutorial has been written for you, Linux users: https://nicolasguilloux.github.io/blade-shadow-beta/

We will be more careful for the next release. I created a bunch of VM to test it but as the app directly talks to the GPU, it's pretty hard to debug. Please, visit the git of the Linux Community on Shadow, and report your issues on the Discord of your country. ;)

I am getting this issue.

chmod: cannot access 'wrapper.pl': No such file or directory

I just uploaded a patched libva-vdpau-driver package to AUR ( https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libva-vdpau-driver-shadow/ ) which seems to make shadow-beta work on Nvidia cards with the proprietary drivers and VDPAU (at least it does on the two machines I've tried so far). No H.265 support, but regular H.264 seems to run fine. You have to use the --bypass-check option to override the compatibility test.

If anyone tries it out and finds it broken (or working), please let me know over there or on GitHub. :)

libva-utils should be a dependency for this packages. vainfo is necessary for the start of shadow-beta

I'm happy to report that using the appimage installation from https://nicolasguilloux.github.io/blade-shadow-beta/ works perfectly!

I didn't even have this package installed and removed the things I had done previously. I just put the commands in a shell script and executed it, and then it launched the GUI with no issues. I hit connect and boom, there's the Windows desktop! Mouse and keyboard worked perfectly but the mouse was ridiculously sensitive.

Since my modded Skyrim is crashing I ran Unigine's SuperPosition benchmark and it ran without issues! So it looks like Shadow works on Linux now, I was going to say "On Nvidia GPUs" because I have one of the hybrid GPUs in my laptop, but then I remembered it's probably running off the Intel GPU unless they really did fix Nvidia support.

Ah, that explains the freezes on both my laptop and my server, laptop has an mx940 and my server has a GTX 1070.
