Install Steam on Manjaro 21

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Steam on Manjaro 21. For those of you who didn’t know, Steam is a popular video game digital distribution service developed by Valve. It allows users to purchase and play thousands of games. To use Steam, users have to create an account, and they can access the same games on various computers.

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 through the step-by-step installation of the Steam video game digital distribution on a Manjaro 21 (Ornara).

Prerequisites

  • A server or desktop running one of the following operating systems: Manjaro, Arch Linux.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues
  • 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.
