June 10, Latest Steam Deck Beta updates

Steam Deck Beta updates from June 6 to June 9 as they are still quite regular we have consolidated the last few days worth of updates into one


  • Fixed Steam Linux Runtime compatibility tools not being installed to support a title in some cases.

Steam Input

  • Put Nintendo Switch controllers into simple mode when Steam Input isn't active. This also turns off the home LED when in simple mode, as users expect.

  • Gyroscope as Joystick/DPad/Buttons/Lean were using yaw correction-to-the-average-heading, causing subtle drift over time, especially in games which involved a lot of turning in one direction (driving games, flight sims). This was also used in GetMotionData (Steam Input API) affecting titles which used the sensor fusion quaternion for aiming. The correction toward the average has now been removed.

  • Deferred Sensor Fusion: Accelerometer correction (i.e. pitch correction from gravity sensors) for these modes is applied opportunistically - when the controller is rotating fast, or the controller is stationary (determined by stationary noise tolerances in the calibration page). This reduces noticeable "ouija effect" during fine aiming in our experiments. Note, none of the above gyro changes affect "Gyro As Mouse", which only uses Gyroscope readings, not Accelerometer.

  • The top allowed noise threshold for gyroscope in the Gyro Calibration page has been increased 3 fold to allow abnormally noisy gyroscopes to pass the drift correction/calibration process.

  • Fix for a mistake with Gyro orientation which affected Gyro As Joystick/D-Pad/Lean Binds

Desktop Mode

  • Fixed an error trying to delete a local screenshot from the game details page.

  • Fixed incorrect pending wallet balance.

  • Fixed an issue that led to incorrect menu positions.

  • Fixed incorrect file type options being selected by default when setting custom artwork for a game.

  • Rearranged and reworded several items on the friends list context menu to make them more clear.

  • Fixed the friend menu causing a black bar on the underlying chat or group window in some cases

  • Fixed issue where after a client restart, notifications that were already viewed are displayed again as new

  • Fixed some issues where navigation history would get out of sync when using the forward and back buttons, leading to

  • Server Browser - You can now add a favorite server by IP address

  • Fixed hang streaming a game from a Linux computer

  • Double-clicking the Steam icon in the system tray will now open to the default Steam window (as specified in Settings > Interface)

  • Improved performance of the interface in the overlay when animated Steam avatars are enabled

  • Fixed taskbar icons not grouping together.

  • Fixed the "Enable GPU accelerated rendering" setting failing to disable GPU accelerated rendering.

  • Fixed chat windows not becoming the focused window when clicking on a notification toast or the friends list

  • Fixed clipped window controls when the small mode window is made very narrow
