Guide: Installing kHED on Linux with Steam Proton

This guide describes how to use Steam Proton to play and run Windows games on your Linux computer. Some games may not work or may break because Steam Proton is still at a very early stage.

1. Activating Steam Proton for Linux:
Proton is integrated into the Steam Client with "Steam Play." To activate proton, go into your steam client and click on Steam in the upper right corner. Then click on settings to open a new window. From here, click on the Steam Play button at the bottom of the panel. Click "Enable Steam Play for Supported Titles."

Alternatively: Go to Steam > Settings > Steam Play and turn on the "Enable Steam Play for Supported Titles" option.

Valve has tested and fixed some Steam titles and you will now be able to play most of them. However, if you want to go further and play titles that even Valve hasn't tested, toggle the "Enable Steam Play for all titles" option.

2. Choose a version
You should use the Steam Proton version recommended by Steam: 3.7-8. This is the most stable version of Steam Proton at the moment.

3. Restart your Steam
After you have successfully activated Steam Proton, click "OK" and Steam will ask you to restart it for the changes to take effect. Restart it. Your computer will now play all of steam's whitelisted games seamlessly.

4. Launch Stardew Valley on Linux:
Before you can use Steam Proton, you must first download the Stardew Valley Windows game from Steam. When you download Stardew Valley for the first time, you will notice that the download size is slightly larger than the size of the game.
This happens because Steam will download your chosen Steam Proton version with this game as well. After the download is complete, simply click the "Play" button.

What is kHED? Features and Description

kHED is a 3d low-poly model editor for indie game developers and modding enthusiasts

kHED is a 3d low-poly model editor for indie game developers and modding enthusiasts. I released it back in 2009 as a freeware tool and it was quite popular among Half-Life modding community for being easy to learn and functional enough for the job.
Currently I'm using it to make models for my upcoming game Ostriv and planning it to be the major modding tool for my game.
I decided to release this updated version of the editor in hope it may be useful for other developers and potentially to fund its further development.


kHED lets you create models of any complexity, but mainly designed for low-poly props (under 10k triangles). There's variety of geometry primitives like Plane, Polygon, Box, Sphere, Cylinder, Tube, Torus, as well as procedural tools like "lathe" and "loft". Texture mapping tool supports planar, cylindrical, spherical projection, and basic unwrapping functions.
There's also a powerful UV editor with a handy model preview and ability to export UV map to use as background for texture creation.

Game engines support:

  • Import/export Wavefront *.obj files
  • Import/export Collada *.dae files
  • Import/export Filmbox *.fbx files
  • Import Blender *.blend files
  • Directly import Half-Life (GoldSrc) *.mdl and *.smd files
  • Directly export to Half-Life *.mdl files (NOTE: you need to have studiomdl.exe from Half-Life SDK)
  • Export to Ostriv assets (buildings, agents, skeletons)
  • You can also use Milkshape3D import/export plugins
  • Wide range of supported texture file formats including PSD, DDS, VTX and many others

Difference from old freeware version:

  • Texture transparency support
  • Multisampled rendering (anti-aliasing)
  • Rigging feature
  • Ghost mode to see hidden groups
  • Regroup & Isolate functions don't cancel applied texture
  • Added various features to create Ostriv assets
  • UV editor: copy texture map as normal map or height map
  • Group selection synchronized with a list in groups panel
  • Moving groups up/down in a list
  • Fixed some issues with 4K screen resolution
  • New mode in Polygon Tool: On surface
