This package is usually not needed to run SteamVR applications. They require libopenvr_api.so, 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/libopenvr_api.so, /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.
