Quest 1 6к поддерживает если судить по этой информации: https://creator.oculus…stribute/oculus-video/
Во второй версии железо примерно в 2 раза мощнее

А там по вайфаю то можно будет пользоваться или только кабель? А то в описании написано высокоскоростному оптоволоконному кабелю, соединяющему ваш совместимый игровой компьютер с гарнитурой Oculus Quest «всё в одном

Посоветуйте с каким объемом лучше брать? До этого не имел дел с VR очками.Зато имеется много видео в формате VR которое я сам снимаю.Я же смогу не загружая в очки соединясь с компом смотреть это видео с PC?
По кабелю официально, по вифи неофициально есть приложения типа virtual desktop

Я взял 64 гига, видео по вифи стримится с пк отлично
PinWard не официально,вы имеете в виду если использовать ломаные игры? А что не получиться просто загрузить их в шлем и играть без проводов не важно купленные или ломанные??

Does Oculus Quest 2 Support Linux? (Explained)
Using Linux can be both excellent and massively irritating at the same time. Those who have spent hours trying to get a simple thing working know what I am talking about.
If you have taken an interest in the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset and are looking for information about its compatibility with Linux-based operating systems, then you have arrived at the right place!
Linux users are able to transfer files and sideload apps on the Oculus Quest 2 (install custom APK-s). Oculus Link and Virtual Desktop are not supported on Linux. Air Light VR (ALVR) does have limited support, but if you want to continue using Linux and also enjoy PC VR gaming, your best option is likely dual booting.
Let does next look at the topic in a bit more detail.
File Transfer and Sideloading Games to Quest 2 using Linux
First, the basics. Sometimes if you take screenshots of your gameplay and/or record videos on the Quest 2, you will later want to transfer them to your PC / notebook for sharing/editing, etc.
On most Linux distributions, accessing the Quest 2 internal storage for transferring files is pretty much plug-and-play. After connecting the headset to your PC via USB cable and turning the headset on, it should prompt for “Allow data access” and you are good to go.
Things are actually similarly easy when you want to install custom APK-s (games, apps, etc) on your Quest 2 using SideQuest. Since you are a Linux user, I already know that you will want to do this.
You can find an excellent step-by-step guide on sideloading apps to your Oculus Quest 2 using the Linux Ubuntu distribution from the Youtube video below:
But the real question now is whether you can also take advantage of the Quest 2 PC VR capabilities when using Linux.
Limited PC VR Support for Linux
VR gaming (like almost everything else) is primarily aimed at Windows users. But Linux developers and their tech-savvy user base are able to overcome almost any hurdle. Right … right?
The unfortunate truth is that if you are a Linux user, your options for enjoying PC VR gaming on the Oculus Quest 2 are very limited. There is light at the end of the tunnel, but it is barely showing.
Oculus Link / Virtual Desktop Not Supported On Linux
The official way for enjoying PC VR gaming is using Oculus Link or (Air Link if you prefer wireless).
The compatibility manual for Oculus Link clearly states that only Windows 10 operating system is supported. Sorry macOS and Linux users, no PC VR gaming for you. Based on my research, there also aren’t any viable workarounds to get Oculus Link working on Linux.
The next logical question for anyone familiar with VR and looking for alternatives would be: “But what about Virtual Desktop?“
Sadly, since Virtual Desktop emulates Oculus Runtime (which does not support Linux), things are not better here either. As for future perspectives, the following comment from a moderator in the Virtual Desktop discord sums the topic up.
Things are not looking good for Linux users in this aspect. Or are they?
ALVR is Promising
An alternative software for streaming PC VR games wirelessly to the Quest 2 often forgotten is Air Light VR (ALVR).
While it is not as intuitive and easy to set up as Oculus Link or Virtual Desktop, ALVR developers have actually started to implement Linux support for their software. Click on the link to follow the progress and latest updates.
Although the current implementation is far from perfect and you can expect bugs and glitches, ALVR does indeed allow PC VR streaming with the Quest 2 on Linux OS (as can also be seen from the Youtube video below).
I wouldn’t personally recommend this solution yet, as it is still in its infant shoes. However, things might move forward as time progresses – so make sure to check the ALVR Github repository and also their discord channel for all the latest updates.
Dual Booting Currently The Best Option
Being a long-time Linux user myself, I understand the merits and the fact that you are most probably not going to substitute it for anything else.
But in this case, you are going to have to… well sort of.
If you want to keep on using Linux, but also enjoy some VR gaming from time to time, your best option is dual booting.
Having both Linux and Windows installed on your computer allows you to continue using your preferred OS for regular day-to-day and/or work activities while being able to quickly switch to Windows if you feel like having some VR fun.
And that’s it from me. I hope this article helped to clarify the current state of VR for Linux and give ideas on how to move forward.
HARDWARE USED FOR TESTING AND WRITING THE ARTICLES:
* Meta Quest 2 (My “daily driver” headset which I absolutely love & recommend)
* Lenovo Legion 5 Pro (AMD Ryzen 5 5600H, Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060, 16GB RAM)
* TP-Link Archer C6 (budget dedicated router for Air Link, see my full setup tutorial)
ESSENTIAL QUEST 2 COMFORT ACCESSORIES:
* VR Cover Foam Replacement (one of the easiest & cheapest ways to improve headset comfort)
* BoboVR M2 Head Strap (reduce pressure on your head and improve the overall fit of the headset)
I am a software engineer and tech enthusiast. During my free time, I like to immerse myself in the world of virtual and augmented reality, which I believe will be more and more prominent in the years to come.
The process of factory resetting electronic devices should be easy and problem-free. After all, you are most probably factory resetting because you are trying to solve another underlying issue. So.
So here’s the scenario — you get a Quest 2 and try a bunch of different apps, simply to test them out. Some you like, some you don’t and you go ahead and uninstall them. If you happen to share.
Hi! I am Martin Rakver, a software engineer and tech enthusiast. Ever since I tried the original Oculus Rift CV1 headset back in 2016, I have been fascinated with the potential of virtual and augmented reality. This site and my Youtube channel is where I share related information and everything I’ve learned.

If you ask this question, you’re probably wrong here. You can use Windows without Problem. Just connect your HMD and start playing.
I personally prefer Linux for these reasons: Open-Source, Free, Privacy and because I’m a nerd and I like to play around with this kind of stuff. No one is forcing YOU to use Linux for VR or anything else. But if you’re crazy like me, welcome to my little guide. 😀
- PC with some Linux Distro.
- PC with GPU that works with VR. (I play on GTX 1050ti)
- VR Headset:
— Valve Index(I play with this one)
— Vive(Untested by me)
— Oculus(Only Quest 1/2)
[Please tell me about other Headsets that worked for you. I can’t know them all.]
For Quest 1 and 2 there is a usable solution.
You can use your Quest over ALVR.
Sadly, you will encounter these issues:
- audio streaming not working
- h265 encoding is not very good
- instability when using bitrates higher than 200
A workaround for the audio Problem is to use wireless Headphones and connect them directly to your PC.
(Thanks gibarel1 for this Info)
If you have a Rift DK/CV try out OpenHMD. Its not perfect but these have the best support from OpenHMD right now.
If you have a Rift S follow thaytan he is working hard on it right now. Twitter GitLab [gitlab.freedesktop.org]
Use the Proprietary Drivers. The Open Source Drivers are not good.
Some distros like Pop!_OS or Linux Mint let you install them right in the first installation Wizard of the OS.
- Install SteamVR over Steam like normally and start it with your HMD connected.
- Follow the instructions on the screen.
- Start some game.
For some people it will work now out of the box!
If not check out the next block:
3. Press CTRL+O to save
4. Press CTRL+X to exit
(Thanks gibarel1 and sit_up_straight and for this Info)
The normal way of just turning them off with SteamVR doesn’t work.
There are some different ways, though. Here is a little guide to find the perfect one for you:
This is the easiest way, in my opinion. Just install this app onto your Phone:
Well. You have to just unplug your Base Stations all the time. Or you buy an old Android Phone or a Bluetooth dongle for your PC. You can also get creative and get some smart power strips and control them over Home Assistant or something. If you have found some other nice solution, write it in the comments, please. 🙂
(Thanks sit_up_straight and RamsomOfThulcandra for this Info)
The most common problem here is that if you’re not on KDE Plasma the audio in and output will just not change automatically.
So just change this over in your Volume settings.
I can’t offer a screenshot of every single DE so here is just an example for KDE Plasma:
(Thanks KCGD_r for this Info)
If this doesn’t work, download pavucontrol.
Go into the Configuration Tab.
Change the profile of your headset to another HDMI output till it works. For me, it’s HDMI 3, but it will only show as plugged in if SteamVR is running.
Most games are not native on Linux.
The only games I know of that have native Linux versions are Half-Life: Alyx and NeosVR.
So for the rest use Proton!
Firstly we need to activate Proton. Go to your settings and check everything link in this picture:
Now install all proton versions. Not just the newest one, because sometimes you have to switch to a older version for one specific game to make it work.
Go to the website ProtonDB [www.protondb.com] and check every game you want to play. You will find tipps and tricks by many users. And please write your own review after you tried the game to help others on this site.
All of your Unity games like Beat Saber or VRchat are crashing instantly? Like this:
Just change the Proton version of these games to 5.13-6, and it will magically work.
These things will not work, and I don’t know a solution for them yet. If you have one, please send them to me.
- Valve Index Cameras won’t work in SteamVR even though you can use them as webcam without any Problem.
