Most people already know about Steam, Lutris is a similar frontend for installing and running mostly Windows games on Linux through Wine. It's pretty easy to install, so it will be a short walk through of what I had to do to get it up and running.
I run with Nvidia graphics cards, so this part will be for Nvidia drivers.
non-free are activated for
apt in the file
deb http://debian.lth.se/debian/ buster main contrib non-free
buster is the release name of the Debian release.
Usually a normal
apt-get install <pkg> will work just fine. But from what I have read we need to activate i386 architecture to download the 32-bit version of Nvidia drivers.
$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 $ sudo apt update
Activate i386 architecture for 32-bit packages Now we are ready to install Nvidia drivers including the 32-bit packages
$ sudo apt install -y nvidia-driver nvidia-driver-libs-i386 nvidia-vulkan-icd nvidia-vulkan-icd:i386
Install Nvidia drivers I usually reboot after I have installed Nvidia drivers, I don't know if it is needed.
Well Steam is in the normal Debian repo, so it can easily be installed using
$ sudo apt-get install -y steam
Lutris is not in the normal Debian repo but a Debian package is hosted by opensuse.org, but we need to add this as a repo
$ echo "deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/strycore/Debian_10/ ./" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lutris.list
now when we have the repo, we need the public key for it so
apt will trust installing from the repo
$ wget -q https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/strycore/Debian_10/Release.key -O- | apt-key add -
and at last we can update apt cache and install Lutris
$ apt update $ apt install -y lutris
Now we are ready to Game on Debian.
