“Can’t you just apt-get Arma 3?”
“No I’m on Manjaro…”
Then I thought, why can’t we just pacman video games from a repo? Is there a repo that has all the games compiled and what not and works? Is that a thing?
What would it require to make it a thing? Is it even a good idea?
Most linux games are in AUR and some are in official repositories already List of games - ArchWiki
So, yeah, is possible to use either:
pamac build game-name-from-AUR
or for those in repositories:
pamac install game-name
sudo pacman -S game-name
Mind you, games available via Steam can’t be installed like that.
If Steam wants to do all this proton stuff and help linux, hmm,
Well still, that’s cool that we have that, I knew there were some games like libre games and what not, but more than I expected in this list. Would be cool to just have the ability to sudo pacman -S epic-game-name Steam-Game-Name. Perhaps someday in the future it’ll all be integrated and crossplatform for everyone…
Wishful thinking…Future thinking?
