    • Before continuing forth, know that now you can use moonlight-qt on the latest Ubuntu L4T 3.0.0, you should DEFINITELY check it out, since it uses HARDWARE ACCELERATION meaning it's lightyears faster than embedded, that can't work with it now due to lack of support.

      If you had followed this guide before, uninstall the old package by doing 'sudo apt remove moonlight'.

      Here's how get moonlight-qt, also, definitely check the optional tab later, contains some quality of life that you should see:

      • First you need to download and flash UL4T 3.0.0, and boot it, after that you're going to add moonlight sources to your sources.list.d, to do so:
      Code:
      echo "deb https://dl.bintray.com/moonlight-stream/moonlight-l4t bionic main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/moonlight-l4t.list
      
      • Then add the key:
      Code:
      sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 379CE192D401AB61
      
      • Update your apt sources:
      Code:
      sudo apt-get update
      
      • And finally install your moonlight:
      Code:
      sudo apt install moonlight-qt
      
      And have fun with hw accelerated moonlight-qt!! Updated the repo on the guide for the new official release.
      You can also refer to the official wiki on how to install: https://github.com/moonlight-stream...ling-Moonlight-Qt-on-Linux4Tegra-(L4T)-Ubuntu

    • This one by FeranthurReturn can improve QoL by a lot, specially when away from dock and keyboard.

      • You'll need to install xorg joystick:
      Code:
      sudo apt install xserver-xorg-input-joystick
      • Download the config file and move to usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d
      Code:
      wget https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/604648722491768883/684926248505704484/50-joystick.conf && sudo mv 50-joystick.conf /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d
      • Reboot or log-out and log back in.

      These are the default mappings, you can change them by editing 50-joystick.conf:
      ButtonsMappings and key code
      ARight Mouse Button(button=3)
      BLeft Mouse Button(button=1)
      L and RVolume up(key=123) and Volume down(key=122)
      ZL and ZRBrightness up(key=233) and Brightness down(key=232)
      ScreenshotEnables/Disable mouse mode (when you want to play games)
      HomeEsc(Key=9)
      Plus (+)Enter(key=36)
      Minus (-)Back(key=22)


      If you want to edit, these are the joycon's button codes:
      ButtonButton Codes
      BMapButton 5
      AMapButton 6
      XMapButton 7
      YMapButton 8
      ScreenshotMapButton 9
      LMapButton 10
      RMapButton 11
      ZLMapButton 12
      ZRMapButton 13
      Minus (-)MapButton 14
      Plus (+)MapButton 15
      HomeMapButton 16
      LStickMapButton 17
      RStickMapButton 18


      After editing save and reboot/relog.
      This one is a nice indicator that will stay on your taskbar's tray, you can use it to change CPU frequency on the go, for moonlight 1.02GHz is perfectly fine.

      • Just install it and reboot:
      Code:
      sudo apt install indicator-cpufreq
      • Change frequency by right clicking it's icon.


    Any errors or tips? Point them.
    Build this only if you have a specific goal in mind, end users AVOID, use moonlight-qt because this one doesn't have hwdecoding, won't be fast.

    Now, this is how i made moonlight-embedded work with l4t, no magic, basic compiling and running.

    Preparing.
    • First do the good old update, before that you have to apply the 1.1 update available on the ubuntu lt4 thread!
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    • Then install the dependencies, some of them will already be installed on Ubuntu L4T but run it either way (some aren't), if other distro pops out without them here's how you get them:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libopus0 libexpat1 libasound2 libudev1 libavahi-client3 libcurl3 libevdev2 libenet7 -y && sudo apt-get install libssl-dev libopus-dev libasound2-dev libudev-dev libavahi-client-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libevdev-dev libexpat1-dev libpulse-dev uuid-dev libenet-dev cmake gcc g++ fakeroot debhelper libavcodec-dev libsdl2-dev -y
    Now for the actual cloning and compiling part (fun begins).
    • Clone the repository with this command:
    Code:
    git clone https://github.com/irtimmer/moonlight-embedded.git
    • Then compile it following this:
    Code:
    cd moonlight-embedded
    git submodule update --init
    mkdir build
    cd build/
    cmake ../
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo ldconfig
    Restart and you should be ready (fun deepens).
    • Here a basic connection setup:
    Code:
    moonlight pair <pc local ip>
    moonlight stream <pc local ip>
    That's it! Works somewhat well with my router: TP-Link C3200.

    But now we have to config our Joy-Cons to work with moonlight, since it cant detect and map it accordingly.
    • Got ya covered, to do that you have to just:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/local/share/moonlight/gamecontrollerdb.txt
    • Scroll to the end and add this line if you want ninty's layout:
    Code:
    050000007e0500000620000001000000,Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons,a:b1,b:b0,back:b9,dpdown:b15,dpleft:b16,dpright:b17,dpup:b14,guide:b11,leftshoulder:b5,leftstick:b12,lefttrigger:b7,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightshoulder:b6,rightstick:b13,righttrigger:b8,rightx:a2,righty:a3,start:b10,x:b2,y:b3,
    • If you want M$'s layout (invert a and b, x and y):
    Code:
    050000007e0500000620000001000000,Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons,a:b0,b:b1,back:b9,dpdown:b15,dpleft:b16,dpright:b17,dpup:b14,guide:b11,leftshoulder:b5,leftstick:b12,lefttrigger:b7,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightshoulder:b6,rightstick:b13,righttrigger:b8,rightx:a2,righty:a3,start:b10,x:b3,y:b2,
    Look up for the moonlight command to see the available variables for you to tweak your connection (bitrate, resolution, input device and etc.).

    Any errors or things i should add, point them :).

    Nice thanks. I guess this runs smoother and with audio compared to In-Home-Switching?

    Yes, the only thing is that you have to configure the joycons.

    You're probably missing libavcodec. Try:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libavcodec-dev

    Hey thank you for the tutorial. I have a few questions. When I press the command to stream it, it took me straight to steam. but my joycon button didn't move the controller at all on steam. Is there a way to fix this? and is there a way to make it stream my computer screen instead of going straight to steam. Thank YOU!

    Can’t fix your controller issues, but if you want to go straight to desktop you need to add “mstsc” (found in system32 folder) in GeForce experience, then specify it with “-app mstsc” when loading moonlight.

    Could you execute
    Code:
    cmake ../ >> output.txt
    and attach the file here?

    I got the same error... Figured there are several other missing dependencies that are still needed:

    -- Checking for module 'sdl2>=2.0.4' -- No package 'sdl2' found
    -- Checking for module 'vdpau' -- No package 'vdpau' found
    -- Checking for module 'libva' -- No package 'libva' found
    -- Checking for module 'libva-x11' -- No package 'libva-x11' found
    -- Checking for module 'libcec>=4' -- No package 'libcec' found
    -- Checking for module 'egl' -- No package 'egl' found
    -- Checking for module 'glesv2' -- No package 'glesv2' found

    You both are missing sdl2. Try to install the package:
    Code:
    sudo apt install libsdl2-dev
    If this fails, you can still compile it yourself. But try the package installation first.
    How to compile it yourself:
    Code:
    wget https://www.libsdl.org/release/SDL2-2.0.9.tar.gz
    tar xf SDL2-2.0.9.tar.gz
    cd SDL2-2.0.9
    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake ../
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo ldconfig

    Anyone managed to configure controls? Steam won’t let me, it instantly assigns button 0 to any binding I attempt. Moonlight recommends the sdl2 gamepad configurable, but I don’t think there’s an ARM version.
    That aside, it’s working really well! Tried it 20 miles away and the lag isn’t bad!

    Ill add those other dependencies to the op, before moonlight i had built other things so this will definitely help people with clean installations.

    Hey folks to get joycons working properly you have to:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/local/share/moonlight/gamecontrollerdb.txt
    Scroll to the end and add this line if you want ninty's layout:

    Code:
    050000007e0500000620000001000000,Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons,a:b1,b:b0,back:b9,dpdown:b15,dpleft:b16,dpright:b17,dpup:b14,guide:b11,leftshoulder:b5,leftstick:b12,lefttrigger:b7,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightshoulder:b6,rightstick:b13,righttrigger:b8,rightx:a2,righty:a3,start:b10,x:b2,y:b3,
    If you want M$'s layout (invert a and b, x and y):
    Code:
    050000007e0500000620000001000000,Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons,a:b0,b:b1,back:b9,dpdown:b15,dpleft:b16,dpright:b17,dpup:b14,guide:b11,leftshoulder:b5,leftstick:b12,lefttrigger:b7,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightshoulder:b6,rightstick:b13,righttrigger:b8,rightx:a2,righty:a3,start:b10,x:b3,y:b2,
    That's it.
