Installing Steam GNU/Linux on a FreeBSD operating system.

 

Play GNU/Linux games on a FreeBSD operating system.

 

To install a Linux version of Steam, install the port linux-steam-utils, for this go to the directory of this port and build the port.

 

 

cd /usr/ports/games/linux-steam-utils

 

make install clean

 

Or install the package, whatever is more convenient for anyone.

 

pkg install linux-steam-utils

 

pkg install wine-proton libc6-shim python3

 

Install your video card driver

 

cd /usr/ports/x11/linux-nvidia-libs(-xxx)

 

make install clean

 

pkg install linux-nvidia-libs(-xxx)

 

To continue, we need to create a new user that is not in the wheel group. If your current user is not a member of the wheel group then you do not need to create a new one.

 

To create a new user, use adduser or bsdconfig following the system prompts.

 

Then go to installation of Steam itself, for this we enter the command from your user:

 

steam-install

 

We wait until completion and write the following in /etc/fstab:

 

fdescfs /dev/fd fdescfs rw 0 0

 

Execute as root:

 

mount -a

 

Launch from the user Steam with the steam command, wait for the update and enter your account, play!
