How to install steam?

Hello, I recently installed the q4os installer for windows to see if was good enough to change to from windows 7.

However, I had a lot of difficulty when it come to installing application, specifically steam, I tried finding it from the package from software centre to synaptic package manager but there nothing related to steam. I even tried searching on the internet to find how to install steam but with no such luck.

If someone can help me with this, I would be really grateful.

Thxs smile.

You only need to follow Steam on Debian guides, as Q4OS is Debian actually. You could start here

Re: How to install steam?

I'm not sure if you're still searching, but I've found that Flatpaks have been working well for me on Q4OS 3.6 . I havent tried with 2.7, though.

sudo apt install flatpak
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub
flatpak install flathub com.valvesoftware.Steam

I believe you do have to restart your computer for the application to show up in your start menu, but it has worked well for me so far.

I hope this helps out smile
