Could I run Steam using a Flatpak or Stow like sollutions?

Recommended Posts

You can run Steam using flatpak. Use the Gentoo flatpak overlay: https://github.com/fosero/flatpak-overlay (I use the local repository method, which I put it in /opt/flatpak), emerge flatpak, add the flathub repository: 

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

then install Steam from flathub:

flatpak install flathub com.valvesoftware.Steam

Then as root issue:

echo 'kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1' > /etc/sysctl.d/unprivileged_userns_clone.conf

 

Works for me.

And how would the 32lib libraries would be handled by Flatpak?
Why did you choose the Flatpak method over the others?
I just want to understand the different methods so I can make my choice, I been checking the posts drobbins and the Funtoo and Gentoo Wikies, but I still feel I need more info.

Thanks for your reply.

The needed libraries are installed by flatpak. I choose this method because it's easy, and it works. I'm lazy at baseline. 🙂

 

Forgot to say that you need to reboot after the last line so the kernel gets the appropriate parameter. After that Steam will work.
