06/11/2012. A historic day. Valve releases his first Steam Linux Client ever. 60.000 people filled the beta survey and asked for a beta pass, but only a few of them are now able to try it... Or not?
Yes, it doesn't care if you have been picked as beta tester or not, some Linux users have found a hack so you can open the client and you can also play a few games (only if you have already bought one of the Humble Indie Bundles).
As now, the client is only available for Ubuntu and Arch Linux users.
Download it here:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/steam/ (Arch Linux)
Now follow my installation video if you want to know how to run the client if you're not a beta tester.
As i said before, there are many games which can be already played, but the first thing to do (if you have not done it before) is to redeem all your HIB Steam keys.
This is a list of playable games:
- Dungeons of Dredmor
- Frozen Synapse
- Space Pirates and Zombies
- World of Goo
Waiting for the beta client to be opened to everyone and for some games to be played, here are some screenshots and videos.
That's all. Feel free to send me an email or leave a comment if you got some problems or if you just wanna ask me a question. I will always answer you!
