This package is usually not needed to run SteamVR applications. They require, but usually they will package this library with the application.

Even when developing with OpenVR is often included as a submodule and does not require a system wide installation like openvr-git provides.

This package basically installs /usr/lib/, /usr/inlude/openvr.h, /usr/include/openvr_capi.h (with some fixes), which allows applications to link with -lopenvr_api and #include <openvr.h> without having to include openvr in the project. You only need this package if you want to do this.

It also installs the two OpenVR/SteamVR demo applications /usr/bin/hellovr_opengl and /usr/bin/hellovr_vulkan.
