that SteamVR for Linux is now in beta:
GamingOnLinuxValve have put up SteamVR for Linux officially in Beta form and they are keen to stress that this is a development release. You will need to run the latest Steam Beta Client for it to work at all, so be sure to opt-in if you want to play around with it. VR on Linux will exclusively use Vulkan, [...] On NVIDIA, you need to have the 375.27.10 "Developer Beta Driver", which can be found here. There's also this PPA for Ubuntu users. [...] For AMD GPU owners, you need a very recent build of the open source radv driver (Mesa), likely from git.
Great news, of course!
Croteam recently semi-released Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter
for Linux, with the note that it "is waiting for updated SteamVR for Linux to be released. Once that is out, we will enable the Linux download for all owners". At the time of writing, the game's Steam page
does not yet have the SteamOS icon, but it will probably be available soon.
