As you all might know, the Fedora team recently released the latest stable release of Fedora 36. For the uninformed, Nobara Project is an unofficial fork of Fedora OS, made by Glorious Eggroll, the dev behin GE-Proton. Anyways, now, we have Nobara 36 for PS4. With this release, it’s safe to say that the PS4 scene doesn’t suffer from a lack of distros. Don’t believe me? Check the PS4 Linux Distro Download section.
Coming back to Nobara, last month, I had released Nobara 35 for PS4. The distinguishing features of this awesome project remain more or less the same. We have tons of pre-installed applications. A list of the same is available below. Moreover, OBS Studio is also available. You might also look into streaming/recording with PS4 Linux.
By the way, I would also like to inform you guys of the new PS4Linux Forum. Do join for the latest conversations, troubleshooting and more.
- Display Manager – GNOME 42.1
- Mesa – 23.0.0-git
- Libdrm – 2.4.110
- Feature-packed OS for gaming, streaming and editing
- Heroic Games Launcher
- Dolphin Emulator
And many more…
As you might have noticed, I have added Heroic Games Launcher to the list, to make it easier for you guys to launch the games on Epic Store. Moreover, Nobara 36 also comes pre-installed with ProtonUp-Qt, which makes downloading and loading GE-Proton easier on Steam and Heroic Games launcher too.
Streaming and Video editing applications
- OBS Studio
If you feel the list is not very exhaustive, no worries! Just check the terminal install commands database to find detailed instructions on installing more applications.

Among other things, in the video, you will also find the gameplay of the game – Control, launched using Heroic Games Launcher. Enjoy!
Installation: How to install Nobara 36 on PS4?
Like the earlier version of Nobara and Pop OS, the usual installation method ends up in errors. So, I suggest using the faster alternate method for installation.
As for the Rufus method, I will upload them when I have the time.
Set up persistent swap space (Optional, but recommended)
I always recommend the user to set up swap space before beginning any demanding activities on the distro, like gaming or streaming. Including a swap space with the distro will increase the download size. That is why, you will have to do it manually. Here are the steps to set up a persistent swap space on PS4 Linux distros.
If this method doesn’t work, try this alternate swap creation method (second one in the section).
More distros and cool stuff for PS4 Linux is on the way. Join us on social media and the all-new forum so that you don’t miss out. Let me know in the comments or on the forum thread if you do face any errors.
