Frequently asked questions.
Can I use LÖVR without a VR headset?
Yes, LÖVR will automatically use a fake headset system that you can control with your keyboard/mouse if there isn't any VR hardware detected.
You can also set the
t.modules.headset flag to false in
lovr.conf to disable VR completely and develop a traditional 3D desktop application.
How do I get LÖVR to work with OpenXR?
Currently, OpenXR support is not included by default. You can compile from source and add the
-DLOVR_USE_OPENXR=ON CMake option. There are upcoming plans to include OpenXR by default.
Are there macOS binaries available?
Yes, you can download them from https://lovr.org/download/mac.
Is there any way to access keyboard/mouse input?
Yes, there are
lovr.textinput callbacks. For mouse
lovr-mouse on the Libraries page.
Does LÖVR work on Linux?
Sorta. Linux is an officially supported platform and generally works, but there aren't a lot of people using LÖVR/VR on Linux so problems come up from time to time. If you do run into something, please open an issue or post in Slack about it.
