Yes! ‘Counter Strike’ native on linux steam!

Counter-Strike‘ is a tactical first-person shooter video game developed by Valve Corporation which originated from a Half-Life modification by Minh “Gooseman” Le and Jess “Cliffe” Cliffe. By the fourth beta version, Valve Software, the developer who created Half-Life, began assisting in the development of Counter-Strike. In 2000, Valve bought the rights to Counter-Strike.

Today valve started porting the ‘golden-oldies’ to the Linux platform. Currently available in beta or limited users, but should be live soon.

When trying to launch Counter-Strike, an error is displayed.


Make shure the hl_linux binary is in your path:

$ cd ~/Steam/SteamApps/common/Counter-Strike;
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:. ./hl_linux -game cstrike;


Counterstrike on linux, comfired to run on Ubuntu, Arch and Debian!
