How to play Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel on Linux

Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is a free trading card duel game developed and published by Konami. It was released on the PC but never for Linux. Thankfully, Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel works well on Linux with Proton. Here’s how to get it working.

Getting Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel working on Linux

Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel works on Linux thanks to the magic of Proton and Steam Play. However, those tools only run with the Linux version of Steam, so if you’d like to enjoy Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel on your Linux PC, Steam must be installed.

Steam is supported on a majority of Linux operating systems. To get the app working on your computer, start launching a terminal window on the Linux desktop. 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. Follow the installation instructions below that match the Linux operating system you use.


Run the following apt install command down below to get Steam working on Ubuntu.

sudo apt install steam


Steam is available for Debian users in the official software repositories. However, users have to enable “non-free.” As a result, it is much easier to download the Steam DEB package from the internet instead.

To get your hands on the Steam DEB package, run the following wget download command below in a terminal window.

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

With the download completed, the installation of Steam is ready to begin on Debian. Use the dpkg command below to set it up.

sudo dpkg -i steam.deb

When the Steam app is done installing, you may need to correct some dependency issues. Thankfully, when the apt-get install -f command is run, Steam dependencies can be fixed.

sudo apt-get install -f

Arch Linux

On Arch Linux, users can install the Steam application, so long as the “multilib” software repository is enabled. To enable this software repository, open 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. Then, remove the # symbol from the line directly below. When done,  save the edits, close the editor, and run the pacman -Syy command.

sudo pacman -Syy

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

sudo pacman -S steam


If you use Fedora or OpenSUSE Linux, you will be able to get the Steam app working on your computer using software repositories included in your system. However, the Flatpak release of Steam works much better on these OSes, so we suggest installing that version instead.

With the Steam app installed, launch it and log into your account. Then, follow the step-by-step instructions to get Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel working on Linux.

Step 1: Find the “Steam” menu and select it with the mouse. After opening up the menu, select the “Settings” button to open up the Steam settings area. Once open, find the “Steam Play” area and click on it with the mouse.

Step 2: Find the “Store” button inside the Steam app and click on it with the mouse. Then, on the Steam store, click on the search box. Type in “Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel” and press the Enter key.

Step 3: Look through the Steam search results for “Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel”. Once you find it, select it with the mouse to access the Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel Steam store page.

On the Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel Steam store page, look for the green “Play Game” button and click on it with the mouse. When you select this button, it will add the game to your Steam library.

Step 4: Find the “Library” button and select it to access your Steam library. Inside of your library, locate Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel and click on the blue “INSTALL” button.

Upon selecting the “INSTALL” button with the mouse, Steam will begin downloading the game to your computer.

Step 5: When the game is done downloading, the blue “INSTALL” button will become a green “PLAY” button. Select this button to start up Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel on your Linux PC.
