Fable Anniversary is a remaster of Fable: The Lost Chapters from Lion Head Studios and Microsoft Game Studios. The remake was released on Steam in 2014, and there are no plans for a Linux release. However, with some tweaks, you can get the game to work on Linux.
How to make Fable Anniversary work on Linux
Fable Anniversary is a game for Microsoft Windows. However, it works pretty well on Linux thanks to Proton and Steam Play. Therefore, if you want to play this game on your system, you must install the Linux version of Steam.
Installing the Linux version of Steam is relatively easy, and most importantly, it is supported on almost all Linux operating systems. For the application to work, you must open a terminal window on your Linux desktop.
Opening a terminal window on your Linux desktop is very easy. To do this, press Ctrl + Alt + T on your keyboard. Or find “Terminal” in the application menu and launch it that way. Then follow the Steam installation instructions that match the Linux OS you are using.
On Ubuntu, the Steam app can be installed using the apt install command .

If you want Steam to work with Debian , you need to download the latest Steam DEB package from Valve. To get the latest Steam DEB package file, use the following wget download command below.
After downloading the Steam DEB package to your computer, you can begin installation. Install Steam on Debian using the dpkg command .

Steam is available to all Arch Linux users through the “multilib” software repository. That being said, this software repository is not always enabled by default. To enable it, run the file /etc/pacman.confin your favorite text editor (as root).
Once the file is open in a text editor, find “Multilib” and remove the # in front of it. Then remove the # character from the lines just below it. Finally, save your edits.
After saving the changes to the file, resynchronize your Arch Linux system with the official Arch servers using the pacman -Syy command .
sudo pacman -Syy
After setting up the multilib software repository, install the latest version of Steam on Arch Linux using the pacman -S command .
sudo pacman -S steam
Fedora / OpenSUSE
In Fedora Linux, so users can install via Steam repository software included in the operating system and OpenSUSE Linux. However, these Steam versions tend to perform worse than the Steam Flatpak release, so we recommend following these instructions instead.

After setting up the Flatpak runtime, you can install Steam. Using the two commands below, start Steam.
