The Riftbreaker is a base-building survival video game with RPG elements. It was developed by EXOR Studios and published by Surefire Games. Here’s how you can play The Riftbreaker on Linux.
Running The Riftbreaker on Linux
The Riftbreaker is not native to Linux, but you can play it on Linux if you configure it correctly. You will need to configure the Steam application installed on your Linux system to start.
Installing Steam on Linux isn’t difficult, although you have to do it in the terminal. To launch a terminal window on the Linux desktop, press Ctrl + Alt + T on the keyboard. Or search for “Terminal” in the application menu and launch it that way.
With the terminal window open and ready to use, the installation begins. Follow the installation instructions below that correspond to your Linux operating system.
Use the following apt install command in a terminal window to install Steam on your Ubuntu system.
sudo apt install steam
To install Steam on your computer, on Debian, you need to download the latest Steam DEB package. To do this, use the wget download command to grab the latest version of Steam for your computer.
After downloading the latest version of Steam to your computer, the installation can begin. Using the dpkg command below, configure the latest version of Steam on your computer.
sudo dpkg -i steam.deb
With the Steam DEB package installed on your computer, use the apt-get install -f command to fix any dependency errors that may have occurred during the installation process.
sudo apt-get install -f
Steam is available for Arch Linux users in the “multilib” software repository. To configure it on your computer, you must first activate “multilib”. Open the /etc/pacman.conf file in your favorite text editor (as root).
Once the text file is open, locate “multilib” and remove the # symbol. Also remove the # symbol from the lines directly below. When done, save your changes and run the pacman -Syy command.
sudo pacman -Syy
With the “mutlilib” software repository configured on your computer, install the latest version of Steam on your system using the pacman command.
sudo pacman -S steam
If you are using Fedora or OpenSUSE Linux, you will be able to install Steam through the official software repositories included in your operating system. However, the Flatpak version of Steam works much better on these operating systems, so we suggest following these instructions instead.

To use Steam as a Flatpak on Linux, you must first configure the Flatpak runtime on your computer. Configure the runtime on your Linux PC by following our guide on the subject.
After configuring the Flatpak runtime on your computer, run the two commands below to configure the latest version of Steam.
