Comment by ~redstrate on ~redstrate/astra

I wanted to implement virtual keyboard support for non-Steam players that play through Steam, but I don't think that's easily possible. I can force the virtual keyboard stuff on in-game, but it never actually calls into the Steam API as far as I can tell. I think it may be related to the gameoverlay not working.

As noted in https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/8952#issuecomment-1808949760, the Steam overlay is not compatible with how Flatpak is sandboxed. Even adding LD_PRELOAD and stuff to go inside of the Flatpak, it will never detect the Steam API and initialize properly.

A research thread:

The Steam Overlay isn't working inside of the Astra Flatpak, with native Steam (but almost certainly broken with Flatpak'd Steam as well). This is an unfixable problem on our side unfortunately.

This is used as the referrer for news banners, but it's hardcoded. FFXIVQuickLauncher hardcodes this too, but in a different place (in https://github.com/goatcorp/XLWebServices/blob/fd00aee25330f6708d710de56f20054307180bb5/XLWebServices/appsettings.json#L44). Which kind of defeats the point, the URL is already on your computer - so why not extract it locally?
