1. Use of [[Flatpak]]. The steps for setting this up are listed on In the [[Flatpak]] page and will get you up and running with Steam. The Flatpak Steam image is based on Ubuntu 12. 2. We past we have also have an official offered a Docker image for Steam, but this method is no longer officially supported. See [[Steam/Docker]] for details on this image. This It actually works very similarly to the Flatpak method currently only supports NVIDIA hardware, and interested developers may want to play with it or study it. Our It was missing some things like desktop icon integration. Since it requires a decent amount of work to maintain, and the Flatpak Steam image is based on Ubuntu 18. ''Our Docker image is not actively maintainedby others, so we recommend you and works well, Daniel Robbins decided it would be best to just use option 1, abovethe Flatpak version as our official method.''
While these two options use different technologies, under the hood they are actually quite similar. They both use a containerized version of Ubuntu which contains the SteamOS runtime.
