How to play Super Flight on Linux

Superflight is a wingsuit adventure game. It was developed and published by GrizzlyGames. The game was released on Windows. However, it is possible to it working on Linux. Here’s how to set it up on your Linux computer.

Getting Super Flight working on Linux

Superflight isn’t a Linux game, but thanks to Proton and Steam it can work pretty well on most Linux operating systems. If you would like to play this game on your Linux computer, you will need to install Steam.

Install Steam

To get Steam working, launch a terminal window. You can launch a terminal window on the Linux desktop by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T on the keyboard. Or, search for “terminal” in the app menu and launch it that way. 

Follow the installation instructions below to get the latest Steam version working on Linux.

Ubuntu

To get Steam working on Ubuntu, you’ll need to use the apt install command down below.

sudo apt install steam

Debian

On Debian, Steam must be downloaded from the Valve website before installation. To get your hands on the latest Steam release for Debian, use the wget download command below.

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

After downloading the Steam DEB package, the installation can begin. Using the dpkg command below, install the latest version of Steam on your Debian Linux system.

sudo dpkg -i steam.deb

With Steam installed, make use of the apt-get install -f command to correct any dependency issues that may have occurred during the installation process.

sudo apt-get install -f

Arch Linux

On Arch Linux, it is possible to get Steam working. However, you will first have to enable the “multilib” software repository. To enable the repo, open up the /etc/pacman.conf file in your favorite text editor (as root).

Once the text editor is open, locate the “multilib” section and remove the # symbol from in front of it. Then, remove the # symbol from the lines directly below. Finally, save the edits in the text editor and run the pacman command.

sudo pacman -Syy

When the “multilib” software repository is enabled, install the latest Steam on your Arch Linux system using the pacman command down below.

sudo pacman -S steam

Fedora/OpenSUSE

On Fedora Linux as well as OpenSUSE Linux, Steam is available for installation within software repositories included in the operating system. However, the Flatpak release of Steam works much better, so we suggest following those instructions instead.

Flatpak

If you’d like to get Steam working as a Flatpak, you’ll need to install the Flatpak runtime on your computer. You can set up the runtime on your computer by following the guide on the subject.

After setting up the Flatpak runtime on your computer, the installation of Steam can begin. Using the two flatpak commands down below, install the latest release of Steam on your computer.
