we want free software because that is good for everyone.

Everyone wants freedom but most people have no idea just how enslaved they have become to their computing devices and the proprietary software that controls those devices. The Free Software Movement aims to spread awareness of this issue and to advocate for the use of freedom-respecting software ("free software").

DistroTube basically did a recap of what Richard Stallman used to say on his lectures.
he is not working for Free Software Foundation anymore so he doesnt do than anymore officially.

latest Ubuntu LTS has openjdk-14-jre in the repo

just ping us for the RC release if you guys dont test it with open jdk

in the mean time everyone checks his/her exotic distro for availability :pp

Game runs fine, sometime i have exceptions, but not often.
But any mods doesn't work at all. I can see downloaded maps, can download mods, enable them in the FAF, but they just not working in the game.

@Podli enable the Fallback Vault Location in the client setting and redownload your mods (somehow).
was it not enabled from the beginning? oO

exceptions? use the latest Proton version and install Vulkan tools etc: https://linuxconfig.org/install-and-test-vulkan-on-linux

@foodlfg My client insists on JDK11 so had to install it. Ubuntu 20.04.

0

@LittleMissMurder
yes? what do you want to say with this?
you dont have an old version of java JRE on other distros?

the new 1.2.0 client needs java 14 btw.
i dont know if it is worse news or not. (if you are on Ubuntu 20.04, it is not)

JDK (or rather JRE) 11 is still default but you can of course choose which version to install.

1

well lets simplify this:

  • sudo apt install openjdk-14-jre
  • use: 1.2.0 client
