[Guide] Make Steam (Borealis) work again on FydeOS ๐ŸŽฎ

Steam on ChromeOS/FydeOS

Here is how to install Steam in FydeOS
The guide in the FydeOS website fails, but here is how to get it working!

Please do the steps in order!

  1. Open the terminal by Ctrl+Shift+T.
  2. Here, type shell and hit enter.
  3. Now type sudo bash and hit enter.
  4. Copy then paste and hit enter the script below:
mount -o remount,rw /
wget https://github.com/secretmem/borealis-dlc/releases/latest/download/borealis-dlc.tar.zst -O /tmp/borealis-dlc.tar.zst
tar -Izstd -xvf /tmp/borealis-dlc.tar.zst -C /
rm -v /tmp/borealis-dlc.tar.zst
  1. After it is done (will take some time), then open Chrome and go to this URL: chrome://flags#borealis-enabled. Then hit enable on the flag.

Then restart your device from the flags website as instructed, and launch Steam from start menu. It should work properly.

Youโ€™re welcome!
