With the release of 7.7 coming very soon, we thought we’d test Cradle on additional platforms.
So here’s Cradle 7.7 running on a Steamdeck, in Desktop mode.
As SteamOS is based on Arch Linux, our 64 bit Linux version can be installed.
Both the CDS and WorkBench are running on this very capable device. A keyboard and mouse may work better than the on screen keyboard.
If you install the service manager (systemd script) then the Cradle Database Server (CDS) will start on boot up of the Steamdeck, so you might not want to do that if its primarily used for Steam. However, once started the CDS will stay running in the background when you switch to Gaming Mode. If you have others connecting to your CDS then they can continue to work while you improve your hand-eye coordination in your favourite game.
Although Steamdeck is not an officially supported platform, you can see Cradle does indeed run on additional platforms
