Steam Games & Ubuntu, Xubuntu Linux

    Steam Games & Ubuntu Linux (I'm using Xubuntu)

    This is a list from one of my Steam accounts I have six :) I was sure Steam said a couple
    years ago they were updating all the game install formats so they would work cross platform?
    Well they updated something for hours but it didn't make all the games work.

    You can play most Windows games in Linux using Wine for Windows. (a little buggy)
    Or running a VM version of Windows, easier just to dual boot Linux & Windows.

    You can install games on a NTFS drive so if you already have a game drive or partition
    you can use that one. Click Steam, Settings, Downloads, STEAM LIBRARY FOLDERS,
    ADD LIBRARY FOLDER. Look under "Media" those will be your NTFS drives.
    (I made a folder D:\Linux\Games\Steam) You will need to mount that drive on start-up
    (give it Read & Write permissions under Linux) Settings, Disks, little gears under the
    Volume box, Edit Mount Options, Automatic Mount Options Off. You don't need to change
    any settings they should work.
