It seems weird, but having played for several hours, I haven’t ever seen a news item sync via comms, and none of the “Information in Space” panels have any entries. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to be discovering more or if there’s a bug here?
Which Linux version are you using?
We have a Ubuntu and a Mint test machine here, and some other ones remotely with our publisher.
I’ll look into it for you.
I’m on NixOS 18.09, using “steam-run” which imitates a Ubuntu system to provide a welcoming environment for games.
This is still true with 1.0.6…
