How to Install Mods on Linux – Factorio
There are two ways to go about installing mods in Factorio on Linux. One way is through the game itself, and the other one is manually installing them. The former is much easier, although, many opt-in for the second method, since some mods cannot be found in the game’s client.
Time needed: 5 minutes.
The first method of adding mods to Factorio on Linux is the following:
Launch Factorio and go to the main menu.
From the main menu, open ‘Mods’.
Once you press the ‘Install’ button a whole list of available mods will be given to you.
Simply choose one from the list, then install it from inside the game.
The other way includes downloading a mod from a third-party website, like FactorioMods. After that, the mod has to be manually installed:
- Navigate to the mods folder on your Linux system: ~/.factorio/mods.
- Go to your downloads folder on your computer.
- From there, drag and drop the mod file to the mods folder.
