I have to install dinput8 with winetricks to get voice-overs and other stuff from the evo mod of trails in the sky and this breaks gamepad support in wine (the only solution as far as I know to this would be not to use the mods or use steam input to make the controller emulate a mouse and keyboard (which is what I do))
because I am emulating mouse and keyboard with a controller sometimes other applications will take control away from the game, for example, some times ill randomly alt-tab when I don’t want to. or I can hear steam moving through its menu while I am playing. is there a way to block other applications from using the emulated input? ( i been told that a solution fo this could be running a separate xserver however i have been googling, asking on Reddit and other discord servers on how to do this and I haven’t figured it out supposably all you have to do is run this xinit vkcube -- :1 vt$XDG_VTNR for example but this gives an error about having a xserver already running
holy sh$$$ i figured it out i had to do xinit /usr/bin/xterm -- :1 vt$XDG_VTNR and it worked now i can have the steamos compositor for a steam os like experience on tty and i can have my normal kde desktop on the other good bye screen tearing and other issue:partying_face: now it would be really cool if i could assign each session a display so that the steamos like intance is always on my TV and the regular kde desktop is on my monitor
i got it working. So now i have kde runing on my monitor and when i press ctl+alt+f2 It switches to my 4k tv which is running the steamos compositor and session. The only issue is i have to switch between them with ctl+alt+f2 and ctl+alt+f1 and i also haven’t figured out how to automate it on boot.
i just had to install the steamos compostor and in the tty i want steam in run DISPLAY=":1" and then xinit /usr/bin/steamos-session and it worked
so know technicly i fixed my issue as when im gaming im runing a diffrent enviorment so alt tab will do nothing
