Linux is close!

Finally today we see the light at the end of the tunnel - Euro Truck Simulator 2 Linux port is almost finished. Very soon we should be able to start beta testing it.

    5. Ok guys calm SCS is a little development studio not like RockStar ou EA. They have worked 3 years for this game and they still work hard for making to us a very good game not like European Bus Simulator ou OMSI. They want to make a stable version of ETS2 ans they have not the time for post every 5 minutes.

      Peace

    7. I can't wait to convert my PC from that fucking Windows to Linux. Good luck and great job!

    8. what are you saying we don't care about linux? speak for yourself, i use linux as many people i know. SCS made a great job with the game and it's providing the resources to all the clients, fans and gamers. You didn't bought all the ets2 games from scs so shut up and play, they will do the patch. If you can do better then them so make the patch or a game yourself and stop complaining, the easyest thing to do in the world it's speak and complain, the hardest is to do and achieve goals.

      Delete
    9. So, this is why we have been waiting months for news of the patch... because they're not working on it. Well done SCS, glad to see you have got your priorities sorted... NOT!

      Delete
    10. You can choose to be anything on the Internet, but many people choose to be an idiot.

      SCS is a great company and porting the game to Linux was a great idea. Linux users are a lot more likely to actually buy the game, unlike the idiots here in the comment section complaining about the patch.

      please behave.. I preefer if the blog is clean of mad kids And if you could read you would see this:


      Mike, calm down! We still work hard on next patch, another team works on Linux conversion. So do not speak dirty and wait for info.

      That means they got teams in the scs company working on diffrent stuff at the same time.

      Delete
    12. Thanks for porting this to Linux, will be buying as soon as. Certainly puts some other greenlit games (with promised linux ports) to shame.

      Delete
    13. You might not care about Linux, Mike. However, there are many people who actually do. Even though I don't use Linux, I'm glad they're porting the game over to Linux. When I read the title I misread it at first and thought it said "Linux is closed" and thought they were closing the project. I was disappointed for a while until I realized what it actually said. So please don't speak on the behalf of us. Why don't you just enjoy the game while you wait for the next patch?

      Delete
    14. Good for Linux-lovers.. i don't mind.
      BUT, some more frequent infos about patch-work, WOULD be nice..
      Don't have to be so much, just so we know whats going on..
      SILENT, are the biggest support/game-killer there is!

      Thx

    15. Honestly, SCS have spent a few weeks building linux to help them climb to the top of the table, it's called running a business. They need the money, the need more customers, I'd hate to see anyone on the blog take over SCS, it'd be opening windows inside a double trailer simulator.

    22. -3 for the post, +3 for Linux support.

      When the Linux port is finished and available in a Steam store near me, I'll be sure to purchase the game.

    23. I tried the first in the series and although I couldn't at that time be less interested in the title I had it recommended by a friend of mine so I tried it out. I was stuck in front of the monitor for a long time.

      I'll buy it once it comes out to Linux. Thanks for the port!

      Delete
    24. Steam cares for Linux as many other gaming companies. Thanks for this annoucement SCS. Keep up the good work.
      I guess whiners above don't pay for games they like Windows as a piracy platform.
      +1 for Linux

  4. Was a linux version a big priority? wtf happen to putting your game on steam, all the bitching about not enough votes and yet the games still not on there despite being greenlit over a month ago.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Getting greenlit DOES NOT guarantee that the game will get on steam, it merely means that Vale will allow them to "cut in line" to be reviewed. Being on Linux would allow ETS2 to differentiate themselves as a game available on all of steams various platforms.

    2. It's valve's fault, they are being slow, SCS have done all they can with Steam.

  6. In fact, a Linux version was developed in parallel to the Windows version, so it is not actually a port, but given the resources, priorities and distribution opportunities, we couldn't make it actually much faster. The Linux and OSX versions lagged a bit behind Windows until now, but we're really trying to catch up.

    Steam: we're really trying to push hard, but things are simply not going forward as we as we would like to, but we're going to be public on Steam very very soon.

    5. Ow, my bad. I meant UNIX. Linux programs are an easy port to Unix though

      Delete
    6. Not really, Mac, while in essence BSD, has a vastly different implementation of many APIs and, unfortunately, inferior graphics driver support to Linux (especially now, with the increased support from nVidia/Intel). Then obviously clang works differently from gcc and has different quirks, which means it might cause even more problems. It's about as much effort as Win→Lin porting.

      The only thing that makes porting easy is not relaying on weird APIs and just going OpenGL + OpenAL + SDL - practically without issues.

    As far as I know it's the first time a big racing game comes to Linux.

  13. I noticed you have a desktop shortcut Steam. Does this hint at the imminent appearance of the game in a store or a coincidence? [possibly a Linux version of the game will be all the same , really hope so.]

    Now the question is not about the Steam version. How many more will be DLC? The new company trucks? New areas on the map? Do you have the desire to develop a map of the east, can add part of Russia?

    Replies
    1. The last update was some months ago (and even then it wasn't much), and now it seems that they're working on niche ports instead. If this were a big development team, then likely they would be doing both at once, but since we know that this is not the case... I suspect the patch is either on hold, or very low priority.

      Delete
    2. They are doing both at once, read above. This is probably a large patch and both are important. You call it niche, and you may be right, but a Linux port is a good way to get on to console with Valves Steambox around the corner. The console market is not niche.

      Delete
    3. Regardless of what they are or are not doing, the fact remains that fans of the game wait weeks/months for news regarding the patch, and after all the silence we get this. Not hard to see why people are pissed off.

  21. Someone is never happy. a lot of gamers don't use Linux because there isn't as lot of big games there. SCS is making one big boy for Linux to show others that this can be the way and you are whining about next patches. Patches so far was great and I know they will be much more, but patience please. We saw what happened when there was rush to release new patch. Let it be tested, to keep up with game quality. Fingers crossed for the Linux team. I know there can be last minute corrections to keep up with quality and speed of win version.

    ReplyDelete
  22. 2013 will be the year of Linux. ETS2 ported to Linux, Valve launching Linux Steam app and making their own Linux-based console, the Steam Box. Blizzard just announced that they will port all of their games for Linux. Soon, many more will do this and I hopefully can spare a lot of money everytime I build new gaming PC's. Instead of picking up that Windows which cost a lot here, I can just download the latest release of Linux.

  25. In the comments I hear many people complaining about the patch. I'm sure SCS does'nt do annything without good thinking about it. There are many linux users that where waiting for that version. In the mean time there where already a few patches. So the patches are good it was time for them to work for the linux users.

    I'm sure there working on the new patch to. But making such things take time. And most of the time more then you plan. I do some programing myself so I now it.

    You're doing a great job SCS just waiting on you're patch. But I have time. I rather have a deccent well over thought patch then a patch with bugs. So take you're time to make the patch(es) and threat us like whe are uset to ben treat by SCS.

    I'm sorry for the bad English. I hope everybody understands it.

      Solution. Get rid of crappy windows7 and install Linux (not ubuntu bullshit)

    2. Nothing wrong with Windows 7, just the retards trying to use it on crap hardware.

      Delete
    3. If you have ATI 7600M you can install catalyst driver on Ubuntu.

      Just follow the AMD section on this link (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Valve ).

      After installation, if ubuntu does not start using the new card (see if fgl_glxgears works) create a config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) with this entry (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=11712781&postcount=4).

      Using ($ lspci | grep VGA) command find the BusID and replace that with the one that is the ID of ati card.

      I think that should work, if it does not read the forum post at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1930450 to find more information.

      If AMD driver broke, you could return to Intel drivers using http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu .

      Good Luck!!!

      Delete
    4. Install Ubuntu. If you are using 12.04 LTS, then goto System settings> Additional drivers and click activate. If you are using 12.10 or above, goto system settings>software sources>drivers and click Activate. Reboot BAM you have your drivers working!

      Delete
    5. Sadly, thanks to the ridiculous interface, I can no longer recommend Ubuntu to anyone wanting to have Linux to their desktop/laptop. It probably works just fine on netbooks, but desktops? No. Just no. It all began on Ubuntu 10.04 when the window buttons were moved to the left-hand side and it's been downhill from there.

      Anyway, if you want to run the game on Linux when it comes out you need to use the proprietary drivers as adviced by Varun above. If that doesn't work, you might have to download up-to-date drivers from AMD's website. If those don't work either, getting updated open source drivers from Oibaf's PPA (https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/graphics-drivers) is your last resort.

      If you want something better than Ubuntu, try Linux Mint Cinnamon edition. It's an Ubuntu-derivative, so you get all the software that's in Ubuntu's repositories but with an interface that's actually usable.

  44. Great job getting it out to Linux, guys. Hopefully this will make Steam take notice and get the game on there. Would love to see more people playing due to the game being easier to find, also the opportunity for easy DLC distribution for you guys (Seriously, I would buy new maps/trucks for $2-$5 all day).

    Also, I know you are tired of hearing questions about Steam release, but is there any chance you guys will offer Steam keys to people who have already bought the game via your website? I was planning to wait until the game came out on Steam to buy because I like having all my games in one place, but ended up playing the demo so much I figured I would just buy it.

  46. I absolutely love ETS2, such a big leap from the previous sims. I am in no rush for the patch, with over 2GB of mods including 3 very sweet map mods that the community have created (Modders MsHeavyAlex, Linux are just 2) Some fantastic trailer mods, reskins, truck mods and skins plus real company mods and VTCs who are using their own skinned trucks, trailers and Company mods. Their is so much extra content available for free out on the net, the patch can wait in my eyes.
    Those using other platforms should be given the chance to be able to play the best Truck sim (IMO!) their is which is continually growing. SCS are a small company and should be congratulated for the hard work, especially for pushing the release out for Windows and then porting for Linux. If all you people who keep shouting and swearing about "Make more content!" actually tried, you could make your own content. The game comes with a map editor and the templates for trucks and trailers are out their easily obtainable. Spend 5 minutes trying to learn how to create a Mod or skin, then understand why it takes time to create extra content that the whole community can benefit from.

    1. Yes, it would be reasonable to make versions at least for most used package managers. But as I understood, Petr Šebor is very familiar with Linux (and he have Linus in G+ circles! :-) -- and of course packages is most basic thing. So I'm sure it's in right hands and we must not worry.

  59. Brilliant! I will buy atleast a copy or two to show my support. Great move, Linux is a fantastic platform. I hope your next titles will be released simultaneously on all platforms.

    Also, steering wheel support would be a big plus. I don't know if thats a big deal or not.

    1. You mean Linux version or ETS2 in general? 'Cos Windows version was published in October, but maybe you're not familiar, so I'm asking. You can buy it, for example, on www.eurotrucksimulator2.com

  65. Thank you for supporting Linux. It's awesome to see so much support moving into the OS. I feel sorry for those people on this page who got angry because you worked on such a great feature(cross platformness) instead of getting them a "patch." Obviously some people are a bit selfish. I hope the steam support goes well too. I saw you got accepted through Greenlight, so that should mean it is coming soon.

  70. Why so many Windows users have some problems with Linux version?
    Just shu* *p! We also want to play some games. Not everyone want to use Windows.

    To developers: Thanks a lot for Linux version. I will buy it on Steam as soon as the Linux version will be available.

  71. Good move, because Linux users actually pay for games, while windoze users usually pirate them.

  77. Thank you for your time porting this game to Linux!

  78. While I don´t care about Linux, it´s always a good sign that developers take their time to care for a relatively small userbase.

    Good work.

  79. I saw on the pictures that the linux version of ETS2 has a sleep and truck damage indicator on the route advisor. Will the normal version get this in the next patch?

  80. Thanks SCS for deciding to support Linux. You are awesome devs, going to recommend this game to my Dad when it's released for Linux!

  83. Just read this and I am looking forward for the native Linux version! I am playing with wine at the moment and it works, but sometimes there are some mouse-problems. And a native version is always the best! If you need beta testers, just mention it ;-)

  84. I can't wait to buy the full version and play it on linux.
    I've been playing with the demo for a while under wine and it's awesome :-)

  88. SCS, thank you very much for supporting Linux! This is great news! This will definitely increase popularity of that great OS. I wish more devs would port their games to Linux.

  89. Thank you. This is great news. I really appreciate your efforts to bring such a unique and interesting game to Linux.

    I'm a developer, not really a gamer. My brother is a trucker. I expect this game to give me an idea of what he actually does ona platform I care about.

    Cheers!

  93. People are so unbelievable shortsighted. Valve is planning to release a "console" which runs on Linux. When small companies are early to that party it can give them an edge and even more miney/resources in the end. More resources means growth, means expansion and faster development of patches/dlc or whatever. Granted this will take time, but that is what I mean with a shortsighted atitude. SCS I see what you are doing here and I really support your strategy. It seems a very smart move to make in the long run.
