ChimeraOS version 33 has landed hot off the press today. The following software packages have been upgraded:

This release also brings plenty of bug fixes, particularly when using the Steam Deck UI:

  • fixed the session being reverted to Big Picture Mode after a recent Steam update
  • fixed non-Steam games failing to launch
  • fixed performance overlay
  • fixed frame limiter
  • fixed night mode
  • fixed brightness controls
  • fixed ChimeraOS release version not displaying
  • fixed some minor graphical glitches

Keep in mind the Deck UI doesn’t work on NVIDIA. You may also need to clear your customizations and re-run chimera-session gamepadui if you have manually switched to the new UI in a previous version, or have custom environment variables defined. There’s a couple of other notes as well; have a look at the patch notes for more info. Also, be sure to check out the interview I had with the founder of the project last month.
