How to play Gunfire Reborn on Linux

Gunfire Reborn is an adventure FPS game with RPG and roguelite elements. The game was published and developed by Douyi Games. Here’s how to play the game on Linux.

Getting Gunfire Reborn working on Linux

Gunfire Reborn has an excellent rating on ProtonDB, so it should run great on Linux. However, if you’d like to play the game, you’ll have to first install the Steam app for Linux on your computer.

Install Steam

Installing Steam on Linux is easy, thanks to the fact that Valve supports all Linux operating systems virtually. If you’d like to get the app working on your computer, start by opening up a terminal window.

To launch a terminal window on the Linux desktop, press Ctrl + Alt + T on the keyboard. Alternatively, you can launch a terminal window by searching for “Terminal” in the app menu.

Ubuntu

Run the following apt install command in a terminal window to get Steam up and running on Ubuntu.

sudo apt install steam

Debian

Steam works on Debian. However, you’ll have to download the Steam DEB package directly from Valve to get it going. To start the download process, use the following wget download command.

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

When the Steam DEB package has been downloaded, the installation can begin. Using the dpkg command down below, install the latest release of Steam on Debian.

sudo dpkg -i steam.deb

After setting up the Steam DEB package, you’ll have to correct any dependency issues that may have occurred during the installation process.

sudo apt-get install -f

Arch Linux

To get Steam working on Arch Linux, the “multilib” software repository has to be enabled. Unfortunately, the software repo isn’t enabled by default.

Open up the /etc/pacman.conf text file in your favorite text editor (as root). When the file is open, locate the “mutlilib” line, and remove the # symbol from in front of it. Also, remove the # symbol from the lines directly below.

Save the edits in the text editor and close it. Then, use the pacman command to re-sync Arch with the official servers.

sudo pacman -Syy

Finally, install the latest release of Steam.

sudo pacman -S steam

Fedora/OpenSUSE

If you use Fedora or OpenSUSE, you’ll be able to install Steam through software repositories included with the operating system. That said, the Flatpak release of Steam works much better, and we suggest following those instructions instead.

Flatpak

To get the Flatpak release of Steam up and running on your computer, you’ll have first to set up the Flatpak runtime. Set up the Flatpak runtime by following the guide on the subject.

After setting up the runtime, the Steam app is ready to install. Using the two commands below, get the latest release of Steam up and running.

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
flatpak install flathub com.valvesoftware.Steam
