Luxtorpeda

Luxtorpeda project Discord Say Thanks!

Steam Play compatibility tool to run games using native Linux engines; project overview.

This is a sister project of Boxtron and Roberta.

screenshot-0

Official mirrors: GitHub, GitLab.

Pre-requisites

Compatibility tool will work on any modern 64-bit Linux distribution. All packaged games are compiled for Steam Runtime environment and require no additional dependencies.

Using Luxtorpeda with Steam native runtime may or may not work, but is not supported.

Installation (using tarball)

This is pre-release quality software, expect bugs and missing features.

  1. Close Steam.
  2. Download and unpack tarball to compatibilitytools.d directory (create one if it does not exist):

    $ cd ~/.local/share/Steam/compatibilitytools.d/ || cd ~/.steam/root/compatibilitytools.d/
    $ curl -L https://luxtorpeda.gitlab.io/luxtorpeda/master/luxtorpeda.tar.xz | tar xJf -
    
  3. Start Steam.

  4. In game properties window select "Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool" and select "Luxtorpeda".

Installation (debug build, from source)

  1. Download the latest version of Rust: https://www.rust-lang.org/ and verify that openssl is installed on your system.

Debian, Ubuntu et consortes

   $ sudo apt install libssl-dev

Fedora

   $ sudo dnf install openssl-devel
  1. Close Steam.
  2. Clone the repository, then use makefile to trigger

    cargo build
    and install:

    $ git clone https://github.com/dreamer/luxtorpeda.git $ cd luxtorpeda $ make user-install

  3. Start Steam.

  4. In game properties window select "Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool" and select "Luxtorpeda (dev)".

Known issues

  • If game does not start with error "No command line defined", it means you need to force-update game package to a new format. Find game package tarball in

    ~/.cache/luxtorpeda//
    , remove it, and start the game again.
  • Solus and Mint users might be affected by unintended dependency on

    libssl.so.1.1
    , see #42 for details.

Supported titles

Just click "Play" and Luxtorpeda will download and install the package for you. You need to select Luxtorpeda as a compatibility tool first, of course.

Want a specific game? Maybe we are already working on it. You can also make a package request, or create package yourself! :)

Development

You can use

cargo
as with any Rust project;
make
serves only as a convenient frontend for packaging and triggering longer
cargo
commands.
