The package name is linux-steam-utils. So whatever you use Software Station or pkg install the name it the same.

Once installed you can follow the instruction from https://www.freshports.org/games/linux- ... s/#message

There is a bit of automation for setting it but, if you are in very old AMD it might not be set properly.
