Installing Steam using Wine 0.9.37
- Download the latest release of Wine. At the moment the latest release is 0.9.38 but it has some issues with steam updates so I am using 0.9.37. If you need any help with the installation of Wine, you can refer to a very well-written tutorial by Chipp.
- Download the latest version of Steam. The file is now an MSI file which is a form of a windows installer. Do not worry though, Wine can install them.
- Lastly you will need a copy of tahoma.ttf which you can retrieve from a current Windows installation or you will have to search the web for it. I cannot provide a link due to legal issues.
Once you have done all of the above, locate your Steam installer through terminal and run the installer:
|wine start steaminstall.msi|
|wine "/home/accountnamehere/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/Steam.exe"|
