Since version 0.19, Kerbal Space Program includes a native Linux version. However, only Ubuntu 12.04 is officialy supported, so it may not work on Arch Linux out of the box.

Known issues

Game never progresses past initial loading

To fix this, set:


No text display

The game requires Arial and Arial Black fonts, provided in the ttf-ms-fontsAUR AUR package.

Graphics flickering when using primusrun

Game crashes when accessing settings or saves on 64 bit systems on Steam

In the properties for Kerbal Space program, set a launch option of:

Game has garbled graphics when running on x86_64 with all lib32 drivers installed

/home/$USER/.local/share/Steam/common/Kerbal\ Space\ Program/ 

Launch with


More elegant solution to follow.

Game crashes when starting a game or opening the settings dialog
