How to Install ToonHUD for Linux, the RIGHT way!
Okay, as seeing that there is no thread for installation for Linux, here it is!

Steps:
  1. Go to the offical ToonHUD site[toonhud.com]
  2. Sign in and create your custom hud account
  3. Edit and save all overrides you choose, then download the ZIP file
  4. Extract the folder inside the ZIP to
    /home/*insertusernamehere*/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Team Fortress 2/tf/custom
    The .steam folder is hidden, so do Ctrl+H to show it, or enable "View Hidden Folders" in the settings of your file manager.
  5. Launch TF2, have fun with your new HUD!

Notes:
  • This discussion will be for Linux troubleshooting as well, if you have a question, post it in the comments section below! I'll try and answer to the best of my abilities.
  • The ToonHUD updater does NOT work with WineHQ.
  • You need lower-case folder names for any type of mod other than the .VPK files. I'd thought that I would add this in for people having troubles with folder mods.

Thanks, I pinned this topic.

I'll try one thing on the next update that might fix the item menu etc. on OSX and Linux. But if it doesn't work, I give up. Then it's community's turn.

Oh hey didn't noticed you used my link. I'll update my file soon, so that the fonts work again. Simply the text alignment is broken on my computer, but it might work fine for Linux.

Uh, about the font, I think that you need to somehow gain root privileges and install the fonts in root.

@ forefront the pyro

Not the case, as I believe TF2 for linux uses its own fontcache program.

There is a command in the source engine that will recache the fonts, but I think that's for something else.

Yeah, for Linux (Ubuntu mostly), fonts themselves don't work, for me only I think. All fonts from the HUD itself don't get recognized and it doesn't get used.

There's also the issue of the chat box, where the font is so small, it's unreadable.

Also, I have my TF2 installed on an external hard drive, in a folder called "LinuxSteamLibrary" because I can dual-boot Windows 10 and Ubuntu. Even after I placed the toonhud folder on the tf/custom folder, fonts still won't work.

For terminal-only you need to install unzip:

Debian/Ubuntu - sudo apt install unzip Arch Linux - sudo pacman -S unzip OpenSUSE - sudo zypper install unzip Fedora - sudo yum install unzip

===================

After you install/If already installed just type:
unzip ~/Downloads/toonhud.zip -d ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Team\ Fortress\ 2/tf/custom/ Instead of ~/Downloads/toonhud.zip use your directory to archive.
