Trine 3 is an Action / Puzzle and Platformer video game developed by Frozenbyte. It is the successor to Trine 2 and was released on August 20, 2015. The game is available on Microsoft Windows, Xbox, PS4, Mac OS, and Linux. Here’s how to get it working on your Linux PC.
Make Trine 3 work on Linux
Trine 3 works on Linux as a native game, but you will have to install the Steam app first if you want to play. Fortunately, Steam works on most Linux operating systems. Unfortunately, the software doesn’t come pre-installed on many distributions, so we’ll have to go over how to make it work first.
To set up Steam on your Linux PC, you will need to open a terminal window on the Linux desktop. You can open a terminal window on the Linux desktop by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T on the keyboard. Or search for “Terminal” in the application menu.
Once the terminal window is open and ready to use, you can begin the Steam installation. Following the installation instructions below, set up Steam on your Linux computer.
In order for Steam to work on Ubuntu, you will need to use the following fit to install command below in a terminal window.
sudo apt install steam
Steam works on Debian; however, you will need to download the Steam DEB package to your computer for it to work. To download the latest version of Steam for Debian, use the wget download command below.
After downloading the latest Steam DEB package on your computer, it is time to install Steam. Using the dpkg command then install the latest version of Steam.
sudo dpkg -i steam.deb
Now that Steam is installed on your computer, you will have to troubleshoot any dependency issues that may have occurred during the installation process. To do that, use the apt-get install -f command below.
sudo apt-get install -f
Steam is available to Arch Linux users, provided you have enabled the “multilib” software repository. To enable this repository, run the /etc/pacman.conf file in a text editor (as root). Once open, look for the # symbol in front of “multilib” and delete it, as well as the lines directly below it.
After editing the text file, save and close it. Then re-sync your packages with the official Arch Linux repositories.
sudo pacman -Syy
Finally, install the latest version of Steam on your computer using the pacman command below.
sudo pacman -S steam
Fedora / OpenSUSE
Fedora and OpenSUSE Linux users can install the Steam application on their computer with software repositories included with their operating system. However, the Flatpak version of Steam tends to work better on these operating systems, so we suggest following those instructions.
If you want to use Steam on your Linux PC as Flatpak, you will first need to configure the Flatpak runtime on your computer. To configure the runtime on your system, follow our Flatpak setup guide.
After setting the Flatpak runtime on your computer, you can begin the Steam installation. Using the two commands below, get Steam working.
