The ability to connect TO Ubuntu/Linux systems would be awesome.
Definitely! My main desktop is Linux only. This would be a great addition.
I do not use windows in my pc, so windows host is not option for me.
We want this too! It'll be awhile before we're ready to take on another server, but it will be done. It's really valuable for VMs, so it'll get done.
@Benjy Boxer: This ought to be a priority - all my systems are Linux & Parsec is the only competent streaming service that has a Linux client. Much market share to be had.
Linux server capability is a must for me to consider parsec for the long term into my homelab. As I only use windows as needed. and windows is a pain to VM automatically unlike linux.
As an competitive alternative to nVidia Experience and a potential chance for owners of AMD graphics cards who might also use Linux, Parsec offers a big chance.
Right now we are basically forced to reboot into Windows to stream our games to other devices but given that there are quite a few games by now that also support Linux, I'd really love to see that software to work as a streaming host on my (currently) Mint KDE box.
I currently have Parsec installed on my Raspberry Pi awaiting the ability to connect to my Linux Mint machine running Distance, Borderlands 2, and DOTA 2 mainly. Server resolution: 960x600; Client resolution: 1280x800; full screen on; bitrate 24; Max clients: 2. AMD A12-7900P with 16GB DDR4 RAM and 256GB SSD.
«Please make parsec gaming on linux server great gain»
In all seriousness, the client is awesome. This NEED to be possible for linux server also.
yea linux rocks i have used both windows and linux and i looooove linux really love a good challenge plus it is overall just better than windows so i would love it to be working for linux :D
Hello dears, how is this coming along?
I would also like to know the current status of this feature, as all the alternatives I have tried out to Parsec is deficient in some way. So I would really appreciate Parsec receiving this functionality.
The longer one takes to start thinking about cross platform development of their code, the deeper they tend to dig themselves into an ever harder to escape platform lock-in coding hole. Seriously, the sooner you guys start this, the better off you'll be. If you come at it after you've coded yourself into a Windows-only corner, you're just gonna end up frustrated and disappointed, and you'll look like liars or fools to everyone who knows anything about software development.
All my computers run Linux, so definitely +1!
I'd pay for this feature
I currently have many VMs with GPU passthrough running smoothly, waiting for parsec to complete the remote gaming project! This needs to happens. I have big plans for it when it will be released :) I would definitely pay for it if needs be
I'm also really looking forward for this feature.
Running Ubuntu/Linux myself, would be great. :)
So, 67 votes later, should we start to assume this is never going to happen?
Seriously, i see you implementing a lot of other mostly unnecessary stuff. Could you at least acknowledge this request? You have a very good host/client software, but it is seriously lacking this feature.
And as others have stated, i would gladly pay for this.
Well, I'm done waiting for this. The ONE feature I would have been willing to pay for, the ONLY feature I've been waiting for, and one of the most voted features on this list, and yay! Ignored...
