Run non steam windows game under Linux

For example I want to run caesar 3 windows game..
Create this script in Caesar 3 folder, named c3.sh


$ vi c3.sh

#!/bin/bash
SCRIPT=`realpath $0`
SCRIPTPATH=`dirname $SCRIPT`

export STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH="$SCRIPTPATH/compatdata"
mkdir $STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH

# change this to your proton binary, for example: $HOME/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Proton 3.16/proton
PROTON="/path/steamlibrary/Steam/SteamApps/common/Proton 3.16/proton"

# change c3.exe to your game executable
EXE="c3.exe"

"$PROTON" run "$SCRIPTPATH/$EXE"

killall -r "$EXE"


$ chmod +x c3.sh

Run Steam, open menu Games -> Add Non Steam Game -> Browse... and choose c3.sh

Click Play to run! 😼

Clean up Unix Trojan.DDoS_XOR-1, Chinese Chicken Multiplatform DoS botnets Trojan

So you have identified your server is infected with this Trojan

Using top you can find random proces name

Killing it will spawn another new random proces

There is nothing you can do.. just restore your server from backup

Or reinstall your server

Just kidding...

You can clean this trojan because this one is non destructive

Ok let's go!


First you have to find the pid of random process using top

You cannot use ps because it renamed the process name

Then you have to freeze those processes, do not kill it because it will spawn another random process

Use kill -STOP pid [pid] [pid] it will freeze those processes


Next we do cleaning up the trojan from file system

Truncate /lib/libudev.so /lib/libudev.so.6 So it contains nothing, because the trojan copy from this file to random name

Make it immutable (chattr +i)

Next edit /etc/crontab  find lines contains gcc and remove it

Go to /etc/cron.d , /etc/cron.* and remove gcc.sh and another random names


Next we go to /etc/init.d find random file…
