This post was prepared for guide you how to install Steam in Kali Linux.
Steam is a video game digital distribution service by Valve. The software provides a freely available application programming interface (API) called Steamworks, which developers can use to integrate many of Steam’s functions into their products, including in-game achievements, microtransactions, and support for user-created content through Steam Workshop. Though initially developed for use on Microsoft Windows operating systems, versions for macOS and Linux were later released.
How to Install Steam:
Installing Steam is pretty simple. Follow the steps for perfect installation.
- Download Steam .deb package
- Install Gdebi
- Steam Launcher
- Add 32 Bit Version
- Execute Steam
Download Steam Packages:
Visit Steam official website and download the deb package.
GDebi is a computer program that can install . deb packages. It is available with a graphical interface, but also has a command line option.
In terminal run the following command for installing Gdebi.
mk007@linuxlia:$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
Now switch the directory to where was the downloaded deb package located and run the following command for installing .deb software packages.
mk007@linuxlia:$ sudo gdebi steam_latest.deb
Press ‘Y’ for installing the software packages.
Add 32 bit Version:
Steam was only supported in 32 bit architecture. So, first of all you want to add 32bit arch to your system.
In terminal, run the following command,
mk007@linuxlia:$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
After adding 32 bit, you need to update your system manually.
mk007@linuxlia:$ sudo apt-get update
In terminal, run the following command for executing steam.
Enter your password for installing additional packages.
Now is the time to take little break. Because I could not specify ‘how long it would take for complete it?’. Luckily for me the packages are downloaded in half an hour. Downloading speed is dependent on your system’s network speed. after this step your system was ready to rock.
Finally steam was installed successfully.
