How to play Exo One on Linux

Exo One is an exploration game. In it, players explore alien landscapes using a gravity-based movement system. The game was developed and published by Exbleative. Here’s how to get the game working on Linux.

Getting Exo One working on Linux

Exo One natively supports Windows. Sadly, it does not natively support Linux. So if you want to play this game on your Linux system, you will have to install the Linux version of Steam and make it work with the Proton compatibility tool.

Install Steam

Installing Steam on Linux is relatively easy. To start the installation process, you must open up a terminal window. You can launch a terminal window by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T on the keyboard. Or, search for “Terminal” in the app menu and launch it that way.

With the terminal window open and ready to use, the installation of Steam can begin. Using the installation instructions below, get the latest version of the Steam app running on your computer.


If you want to install the Steam app on Ubuntu, use the apt install command below in a terminal window.

sudo apt install steam


To get the Steam app working on Debian, you must first download the latest DEB package on your computer. Using the wget download command below, grab the newest release of the app.

wget https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steam.deb

After downloading the latest Steam package to your computer, use the dpkg command to install it to your Debian Linux system.

sudo dpkg -i steam.deb

Once everything is installed on your computer, you must correct any dependency issues that may have occurred during the installation process—using apt-get install -f correct the problems.

sudo apt-get install -f

Arch Linux

Arch Linux has the Steam app, but users won’t be able to install it unless they enable the “multilib” software repository. To enable this software repository, open up the /etc/pacman.conf file as root. Then, look for the “multilib” line and remove the # symbol from in front. Also, remove the # symbol from the lines directly below. Save it when done.

Once you’ve edited the file, save it. Then, run the pacman -Syy command to update Arch Linux.

sudo pacman -Syy

Finally, install Steam on Arch Linux.

sudo pacman -S steam


If you use Fedora or OpenSUSE Linux, you will be able to install Steam through software repositories included in the operating system. However, the Flatpak release of Steam tends to work better on these operating systems, so we suggest following those instructions instead.


To install Steam as a Flatpak, you must first enable the Flatpak runtime. You can enable the runtime by following our guide on the subject. Once it is set up, enter the two commands below to get Steam working.

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
flatpak install flathub com.valvesoftware.Steam
