Installation via Steam on Linux


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I've attempted to install CE via the Beta tab in Steam under properties, and the title of the game became Xenonauts [community] after its first launch but for some reason the game has remained unchanged. I've reinstalled it and tried the process again- to no avail.

Any advice on how to get it to work?

Unfortunately you can't do X:CE with Linux via Steam - the game is wrapped in a WINE wrapper, which means Steam can't change the files within. It's the same reason why installing mods on Linux is a nightmare.

V1.5 Stable will arrive on Linux and Mac via Steam at the same time as it does for Windows, though, so it's probably best just to wait for that given it contains the majority of the X:CE improvements.
