    VR is not good on Linux lmao. I have a valve index and when I used it on linux, it had super bright lights on the edges of the display. I ignored this and played for like 30 mins and after 1 month of no VR usage (busyness), I tested it on windows again and now the edges of my displays in my headset appear to be permanently tinged slightly lighter than the rest of the screen.

    I’m not using my headset on linux again until people spend more time coding, because I don’t want to permanently ruin expensive gear that I have lmao.

    Nix is a programming language, so you have to organize your configuration yourself like you would for any programming project, usually by splitting it into multiple files. Also you can search system modules on the same page that you search for packages though usually there’s not much of an explanation for what it does outside of reading the source code.

    System modules use the package from the repository while enabling some systemd stuff and whatever other options that you will want enabled with it. On a single user system, there is no meaningful difference between system packages and user packages.

    Home-manager can be used to manage files in your home directory, like your configs for apps and stuff. It also can have more module options for apps so you can set up their settings declaratively. Its not for everyone but this is what its supposed to do, outside of your normal nix configuration.

    Nix flakes aren’t a way to install packages, but a way to manage the nix based projects which include nix packages and your nixos configuration and is supposed to make it more reproducible, so its not directly related to installing packages. However if a package for something isn’t in the repos, someone may make a nix flake for installing and building the package.

    Its understandable that you are having trouble though, because the documentation for nix and nixos is terrible, and it only got better for me once I actually spent time learning the nix programming language.
