is anyone at hifi at all interested in getting it to work with VR on linux?

I'm interested, certainly
but I haven't tried
@Triplelexx are they "avatar entities" ?
when you create them, you use Entities.addEntity({...}, true); ?
as they are currently implemented, they don't follow along with the avatar unless they are a child of an avatar joint
so, if you rez an avatar entity at <50, 50, 50> and it's not a child, and then go to a new domain, that entity will show up at <50, 50, 50> in the new domain
and your avatar is unlikely to be in the same coordinates in both domains
there's been some talk about having them keep a relative offset from the avatar, even if they aren't children, but I don't think anyone has done it

there is nothing really to try at the moment. there was the pull request for osvr that was rejected for apparently no real reason and then I tried enabling openvr support but something related to qt threading needs to be changed highfidelity/hifi#10098

@sethalves I got around the issue I think now, waiting for feedback. Thanks for the info.
