Install Stormworks: Build and Rescue on Linux

Stormworks: Build and Rescue is a simulation video game developed and published by British studio Geometa. The game was never released on the Linux platform. However, with a bit of tweaking, you’ll be able to play Stormworks: Build and Rescue on Linux.

Getting Stormworks: Build and Rescue working on Linux

Stormworks: Build and Rescue isn’t native to the Linux platform, but it does have a “Platinum” rating on ProtonDB, so it works well out of the box. You’ll have to set up the Steam app to get the game working.

To install Stormworks, you must have a terminal window opened and ready to use. You can open up a terminal window by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T on the keyboard. Or, search for “Terminal” in the app menu and launch it that way.

The installation can begin with the terminal window open and ready to use. Using the installation instructions below, set up the latest release of Steam on your computer.


To install Steam on Ubuntu, you’ll need to run the following apt install command below.

sudo apt install steam


To get Steam working on Debian, you’ll need first to download the latest release of Steam from the official website. You can download Steam to your computer with the following wget download command.

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

After downloading Steam to your Debian PC, you can install it using the dpkg command below.

sudo dpkg -i steam.deb

Once the Steam DEB package is set up on your Debian Linux system, you will need to correct any dependency issues that occurred during the installation process.

sudo apt-get install -f

Arch Linux

To install Steam on Arch Linux, you’ll need to enable the “multilib” software repository on your computer. You can enable this repository by opening up the /etc/pacman.conf file in a text editor (as root).

Once the text file is open, look through and find the “multilib” software repository line. Then, remove the # symbol. Be sure also to remove the # symbol from lines directly below it. Finally, save the file when you’ve finished editing.

With the editing finished, run the pacman -Syy command.

sudo pacman -Syy

Finally, install the latest release of Steam on your computer using the pacman -S command.

sudo pacman -S steam


If you use Fedora Linux or OpenSUSE Linux,  you’ll be able to get Steam working through the software repositories included out of the box. However, the Flatpak release of Steam works much better, so we suggest following those instructions instead.


To set up the Steam app as a Flatpak on your computer, you must first set up the runtime. You can set up the Flatpak runtime on your system by following our tutorial on the subject.

After setting up the Flatpak runtime, install the latest version of Steam on your computer using the two flatpak commands below.
