911 Operator puts the player in the role of an emergency and emergency services dispatcher. This is a fun and challenging video game. It was developed by Jutsu Games and published by the game operators. Here’s how to play Operator 911 on Linux.
How to get 911 Operator to work on Linux
911 Operator runs on Linux thanks to Valve’s fantastic Proton technology. However, the application is not native to Linux. For the game to work on your computer, you need to install the Steam application on your computer.
Installing Steam on Linux is relatively easy, and it is supported by a variety of Linux operating systems. Open a terminal window on your desktop by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T on your keyboard to start the installation. Or search for “Terminal” in the application menu.
When the terminal window is open and ready to use, you can begin the installation. Following the instructions below, launch the Steam application on your computer.
If you are using Ubuntu or an Ubuntu-based operating system, you should be able to get Steam working with the simple apt install command below.
sudo apt install steam
Steam is powered by Debian . However, you will need to get the latest Steam DEB package from the official Steam site. Download Steam using the below wget download command .
Once the DEB package download is complete, the Steam installation can be done using the dpkg command below.
sudo dpkg -i steam.deb
With the Steam DEB package installed on your computer, you need to take care of the Steam dependencies on your computer. To fix the dependencies , use the apt-get install -f command .
sudo apt-get install -f
You will be able to install Steam on your Arch Linux computer if you have a “multilib” software repository set up on your computer. To set up this repo, open the file /etc/pacman.confin your favorite text editor (as root).
After opening the pacman configuration file, find the “mutlilib” section of the text file. Then remove the # in the front as well as the lines directly below it. Then save your changes.
When you’re done editing, use the pacman command to resynchronize the official Arch Linux software servers with your installation.
sudo pacman -Syy
Finally, you will be able to install the Steam application on your computer using the pacman command .
sudo pacman -S steam
Fedora / OpenSUSE
Those using Fedora or OpenSUSE Linux will be able to install the Steam application through the software repositories included with the system. That being said, the Steam Flatpak version works much better on these operating systems and we recommend that you follow these instructions.
If you want to use the Steam Flatpak edition on your computer, you first need to set up the Flatpak runtime on your computer. You can customize your runtime by following this tutorial . After setting up the Flatpak runtime, install Steam using the commands below.
