Possible removal of the "wine-doors" element, the section is written as more of an advertisement as it stands. The element should either be built on or appended to another section. --Mehcore 02:26, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Running Steam via ntfs-3g from installed copy on Vista x64 partition works for me. Petteyg359

Hey guys, I saw this page and noticed it was pretty outdated, so I rewrote it on my user page. It's a pretty drastic change and I don't know who the authority is with these pages, so please check out my version of this page and let me know if it's good enough to replace the current one. Thanks! --Flibitijibibo 04:28, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

I started to read over your stuff Flibitijibibo, I would recommended we just revamp this. This is very outdated and could use some new life, one thing I did not know I found in your information is stema can now be installed with winetricks. I normally use PlayOnLinux so I was not aware of this. --Glamdring 01:42, 3 November 2011 (EST)

I want to develop a game for linux, but how?

hi everone. The engine's valve is able to develop games for linux? There'are books teacher how to develop with openGL?

thks, Lucas Cunha. (brazil - brasília)

linking to NTFS mounted partition

I ran with my steamapps dir linked off of my windows partition for a few months and it worked great until I actually rebooted into windows- at which point accessing steam blue screened windows with an NTFS error. I had to tar up everything under linux, delete the directory and re-extract under windows to fix it, and I had to reverify all my game caches, several of which were damaged. I'd highly recommend -not- doing this approach with NTFS-3G at this point in time.

Fix the Steam Protocols section.

At the moment, the Steam Protocols section reads the following at the end: "The author says it will work under Ubuntu, but it may work under other flavors of Linux." I suggest it being changed to: The author says it will not work under Ubuntu, but it may work under other flavors of Linux.

Ubuntu 14.04 Unity & Compiz

The Unity interface now seems to be entirely dependant on compiz so running metacity --replace is not a good idea! Moilleadóir (talk) 06:37, 8 May 2015 (UTC)


Can someone clarify the official Valve stance on SteamBridge? IMHO it is a great idea and should be adopted by Valve.
