How to play Craft The World on Linux

Craft The World is a sandbox strategy game developed by Dekovir Entertainment and published by Black Maple Games. In this guide, we’ll show you how you can play Craft The World on Linux.

Getting Craft The World working on Linux

To play Craft The World on Linux, you’ll need to enable Proton. Proton can only be enabled on the Steam client for Linux. As a result, you’ll have to install the Steam client on your Linux PC.

To install Steam on Linux, open up a terminal window. You can open up a terminal window by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T on the keyboard. Alternatively, search for “Terminal” in the app menu and launch it that way.

With the terminal window open, the installation can begin. Follow along with the instructions below to get the Steam app set up on your computer.


To install Steam on Ubuntu, run the following apt install command.

sudo apt install steam


You’ll need to download the Steam DEB package to your computer to install it. Using the wget command below, download the latest Steam DEB package to your Debian PC.

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

After downloading the latest version of Steam to your computer, you can install it using the following dpkg command.

sudo dpkg -i steam.deb

With the Steam DEB package installed on your Debian PC, you’ll 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 must first enable the “multilib” software repository on your computer. You can enable it by opening up the /etc/pacman.conf file in a text editor (as root).

Once the text editor is open, find the “multilib” line and remove the # symbol. Also, remove the # symbol from the line directly below. Then save the edits and run the pacman -Syy command.

sudo pacman -Syy

Finally, install the Steam app using the pacman command.

sudo pacman -S steam


If you use Fedora or OpenSUSE, you can install the Steam app from the included software repositories on your system. However, we suggest using the Flatpak release of Steam as it tends to work better on these OSes.


To install Steam on your computer as a Flatpak, start by enabling the Flatpak runtime. After enabling it, enter the two commands below to install Steam on your system.

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