  • SmokinGuns/Steam

    v1 v1  
     1= Introduction = 
     2In this wiki, we will add Smokin' Guns into Steam as a non-steam game entry on Linux. I'll use in this case a machine running a x86_64 system. 
     3On Windows, linking the .exe is straightforward but Linux requires the game to have a .desktop file. 
     5= Content = 
     6* Why 
     7* Creating a Desktop file 
     8* Adding it to Steam 
     10== Why == 
     11There are many reason for you that we may want to add SG in your non-steam games: 
     12* You want to add all your games in steam to have a nice representation of what you have in your machine 
     13* You want to show your friends that you are playing SG, is there actually a better way to do so? 
     14* You want to use the steam overlay while playing. 
     16== Creating a Desktop file == 
     17Open any text editor and paste the content given below: 
     19[Desktop Entry] 
     21Name=Smokin' Guns 
     25You may edit the Exec and Icon line to point to the {{{smokinguns.x86_64}}} executable (or .i386 if you are using a 32bit system) and {{{sg_48.png}}} icon file 
     26Then save what you did as {{{smokinguns.desktop}}} into the root folder of the game (in the example, it was {{{/home/yourname/folder/of/}}}) 
     28== Adding it to Steam == 
     29* Click on {{{+ ADD A GAME...}}} on the botton of the window on the Library section of Steam 
     30* Select {{{Add a Non-Steam Game...}}} 
     31* Click on {{{BROWSE...}}} 
     32* Go where you saved your {{{smokinguns.desktop}}} file, select it and click {{{OPEN}}} 
     33* Then click on {{{ADD SELECTED PROGRAMS}}} 
     34That's all!
