Launcher for the Steam software distribution service
  20 reviews

Steam is a software distribution service with an online store, automated installation, automatic updates, achievements, SteamCloud synchronized savegame and screenshot functionality, and many social features.

Note: This is a community package of Steam gaming plaform not officially supported by Valve. Report bugs through linked issue tracker.

Note: To add a game library on another drive, first you need to grant the app access to it:

flatpak override --user --filesystem=/path/to/your/Steam/Library com.valvesoftware.Steam

Note: You need Flatpak version 1.12 or later to be able to run Proton 5.13 and newer.

This flatpak works perfectly for me, maybe it has been improved since the last review. To change filesystem permissions use flatseal or flatpak override

Flathub version Works ok for linux native games. Cannot get Proton games to launch at all

The normal package version is great. The flatpak version was borked for me LM20.2Edge. All of these games worked with the normal package but failed with the flatpak. Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Deadspace, 7 Days to Die, Valheim. Also, I didn't try these games on flatpak Steam but on normal Steam they also worked: Far Cry 5, Bioshock Remastered, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and Cold Waters. So, if flatpak doesn't work for you, remove it and re-install the normal package and give it a try.

Whenever I try to launch this flatpak version of steam, I get an error message that says, "Couldn't set up the Steam RUntime. Are you running low on disk space? Continuing..." and then says "You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam my not run: libgtk-x11-2.0.so0"

Can't use steam on Mint, hangs up doing update. Says no internet connection. fine on Ubuntu?

Only this version works for me. If you have problems with games not launching, than it is because of changes in Proton 5.13. You can change Proton version in Steam Settings/Steam Play to make everyting work again. Change it to 5.0.

Please enable access to other partitions than /, so I can add steam libraries on other parititions (eg. /mnt or /media). Also I can't find the link to the mentioned issue tracker. UPDATE: Flatseal can be used to set (filesystem-)permissions. Use "Other files" to permit access to folders (eg: /mnt/.../Games/Steam) or drives and add them to your steam-library.

I want to say a big thank you to the community that put this together, solved my problem for playing games on Mint.

As cdymrtn said in the previous comments, use this Flatpak version of the Steam client instead of the other versions in the Mint Software Manager. The other versions crash consistently.

Make sure to use the flatpak version over the one in the repos, literally couldn't get any game from the repo version to work with proton.

Works very well, but to 5 stars needs to add shortcuts to desktop

Estável e funcional, equipara-se até mesmo com clientes nativos de repositórios tradicionais. Recomendo.
