Valve's Steam digital software delivery system
  20 reviews

Steam ( is a software content delivery system developed by Valve software ( There is some free software available, but for the most part the content delivered is non-free.

This package comes with a fairly substantial non-free license agreement that must be accepted before installing the software. If you have any opposition to non-free work, please select "I DECLINE" during the package installation dialogs. There are also additional agreements in various parts of the application that differ from the original agreement. In other words, pay attention and read carefully if you're worried about your rights.

no flatpak version available.. i dont trust anyone.. especially a company as big as Valve who could easily pick on any individual they want and get away with it due to all of the support they already have

No big issues, just enable proton.

Works great, i've found less issues with the system package than with the flatpak version.

Install was easy and once you get proton enabled in settings everything works great.

Works very well! Have issue related to ''Play Next'' not suggesting anything, but it seems to also happen on Windows. All in all it feels basically the same as on Win 10 :)

I use Steam a long time and on Steamdeck, Debian and here on Linux Mint - all Versions runs like a charm!

If you had asked me 10 years ago about gaming and linux I would not have thought this is possible. I recommend protondb. I also recommend go to a game in steam, than on properties, than on compatability and than choose the latest version of proton that is not the experimental one - this way quite many games work very well. Since I deinstalled it still get error meassages for steam in other software updates.

Lief mal bis auf Ausnahmen problemlos. Wenn ich jetzt (nach dem großen Update auf Mint 21) Steam zu starten versuche, stürzt es permanent ab und versucht anschließend, sich selbst erneut zu öffnen. Es ist nicht mehr nutzbar. Schade. Der einzige Store, der nativ unter Linux laufen sollte und in den Paketquellen vorhanden ist. Dank romeroFan, der offenbar dasselbe Problem hat, weiß ich nun, dass der Befehl "steam" im Terminal zumindest funktioniert. Zufriedenstellend ist das allerdings ganz und gar nicht. Da muss sich etwas ändern. Ansonsten dürfte Gaming unter Linux bald voll und ganz aussterben. Wer will sich schon mit solchen Problemen herumschlagen? Gerade Leute, die überhaupt keinen Plan von Linux und Befehlszeilen haben, werden sich das nicht lange antun und bei Windows bleiben, wo es ohne Probleme läuft.

Steam does not open on the new "Linux Mint 21.2 'Victoria' Cinnamon Edition." The panel icon (as well as the "Start Menu" icon) won't open for Steam. It's like something is blocking it. The only way I can get Steam to open is by right-clicking and selecting "Settings." HOWEVER, I did notice that if you double-click the Steam icon on the desktop, as well as typing in "steam" in the terminal, it DOES work. However, even then, running these games can be a hassle. For example, "Dying Light" (which has a native Linux version) take forever to load (which was never a problem in "Linux Mint 21.1 'Vera'"). When it does load, it plays fine. However, when I try to quit the game, the game freezes. I had to shut my PC off and restart it as a result (this occured multiple times and never corrects itself). Could someone please fix this! Then I can go back to playing my Steam library. Thanks... :)

5 Sterne A+ selbst einige Windows spiele laufen unter Proton super. Kleiner Tip: nicht immer die Experminetal Versionvon Proton benutzen, sondern eins darunter(stable) benutzen und die Spiele laufen.

Pretty much the go-to for PC games in general, and there is Linux support available for the games in the form of Proton, so if you're moving from Windows to using Linux for the first time (like me) then you won't be hurting to revert for a while.
