How To Install Steam on Fedora 37

Install Steam on Fedora 37

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Steam on Fedora 37. For those of you who didn’t know, Steam is a digital distribution platform for video games developed by Valve Corporation. Its broad selection of games, community features, and ease of use make it a popular choice for PC gamers.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Steam platform game on a Fedora 37.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 37.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Steam.
  • A non-root sudo useror access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Steam on Fedora 37

Step 1. Before proceeding, update your Fedora operating system to make sure all existing packages are up to date. Use this command to update the server packages:

sudo dnf upgrade
sudo dnf update

Step 2. Installing Steam on Fedora 37.

  • Method 2. Install Steam using the RPM Fusion repository √

To get Steam on Fedora, you’ll have to use the RMP Fusion repository. RPMFusion is a series of third-party repos that contain software that Fedora chooses not to ship with their operating system. They offer both free (open source) and non-free (closed source) repos. To import the free and non-free repositories, open the command line terminal and execute the following commands:

## RPM Fusion Free repository ##

sudo dnf install \$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

## RPM Fusion Non-Free repository ##

sudo dnf install \$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

After importing the RPM Fusion repositories, install the latest version of Steam on your Fedora system using the following command below:

sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install steam
  • Method 2. Install Steam using Flatpak/Flathub √

First, we need to install Flatpak on your Fedora system using the command below:

sudo dnf install flatpak

Next, you’ll need the Flathub repository to install the Steam package. Flathub is the largest and most popular Flatpak repository. Most of the time when you want something through Flatpak, it’s going to come from Flathub. For that use the command, given below:

sudo flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub

Finally, install Steam using the following command below:

flatpak install flathub com.valvesoftware.Steam

For additional resources on installing Flatpak, read the post below:

Step 3. Accessing Steam on Fedora 37.

Once the installation is complete, you can launch Steam by running the following command:


Alternatively, you can launch Steam from the application menu in your desktop environment and Flatpak users can use the following command to launch from the terminal:

flatpak run com.valvesoftware.Steam
