I recently received my Rift and wanted something to play under Linux, so I spent some time this evening and got the already cross-platform Quakespasm Rift Mod ( to compile and run!

With a bit of Linux know-how, it's actually quite easy to get going. You'll need the official Oculus SDK for Linux and the Quakespasm Rift Mod source code, as well as the following patch to the Makefile:

Be sure to modify the path to the SDK, and place libovr.a somewhere in your path (/usr/local/lib on my system).

It was necessary to run quakespasm in 1280x800 for the stereo images to line up correctly.
