    Does anyone have a working setup for streaming PC games (with joycon input) to the Switch (via Ubuntu or otherwise)? I know of the in-home streaming thing but it's glitchy and I was hoping to use something more stable in Ubuntu. There's also the "Nomachine" tutorial but that doesn't support joycon input. If there's a moonlight port or something, I have a NVIDIA GPU.

    Thanks, that'll work great! However, are the joycons attached to the console still not detected? My left joycon went haywire so I picked up a cheaper left joycon that isn't wireless.

    Not yet and please don't ask them for one.

    It sounds like most things are working though, I think they're mainly trying to come up with an easy install process. I would be surprised if it didn't come out soon™.

    @natinusala any chance of seeing moonlight as part of lakka 4 switch? It is gaming related, after all.

    Lakka is basically just a linux distro dedicated to running Retroarch, so I really doubt Moonlight would ever be integrated with it. But if you know some basics about Linux, it probably wouldn't be difficult to manually add it yourself.

    That being said, it would be really cool if Retroarch ever decided to add a "Moonlight" core, where "roms" could simply be config files for streaming from different computers.
