@milksob I disabled the "legacy" oculus support on linux here: highfidelity/hifi#7337
did you undo that? are you building the needed plugin?
if you are, austin makes it sound like it may not work, anyway

but, nobody uses DK1 on linux? is it correct?

there's no linux branch, but if you send me your changes, I can try to get them integrated (or just open a pull request)

might be easier to use osvr-oculus-rift. Is OSVR support going to be finished soon by the way? HDK2 will start shipping soon and finally has the screen resolution to be a viable alternative

what are benefits of adding osvr layer instead of get it directly? I'm not familiar with osvr and can't find references to it in hifi sources.
