Closed: Allow adding bash-scripts as 3rd party game to Steam.
Now possible to add only installed to /usr/bin executable files (binaries) into Steam as 3rd-party game. But some games uses bash script to launch.
Thre will be possible to launch wined game from Steam, launch games with special parameters, etc.

Yes. I like this. Pervasive scripting is the most powerfull tool in the linux toolbox :D

Being able to launch arbitrary files would also make Big Picture Mode more interesting as the primary interface for a HTPC.

Some functionality missing? Just add the needed script/program to steam.

Bash scripts would be a bit to much, simple shell scripts are enough. The scripts can also used be the desktop files to start the games.

Yes. If this could be done, then I could launch all my Linux games from one place. This currently prevents me from adding a launcher for Minecraft, as well as Wine games, as previously mentioned.

They have this in Desura, right? Because I can launch non-Desura games through Desura (or even any program as long as I link to the executable).

BTW: Steam already supports it.

This feature has been in the client for a while, and you can also select binaries to launch too.
