 +====== Idle Master ======
 +A program for farming [[Steam]] trading cards. It tricks Steam into thinking you are running a game when you're not, so you can get cards for games without having to play them.
  
 +===== Usage =====
 +==== Linux ====
 +You need to add some info to ''/usr/lib/steam-idle-master/settings.txt''.
 +
 +I found it useful to symlink that from ''~/.config/steam-idle-master/settings.txt''
 +
 +By default, it contains:
 +<code>
 +sessionid = ""
 +steamLogin = ""
 +steamparental = ""
 +sort = ""
 +</code>
 +
 +To get the strings for ''sessionid'' and ''steamLogin'' you need to open you browser, make sure you're signed into Steam, then find your cookies for store.steampowered.com. The other strings aren't mandatory.
 +
 +(if using [[Firefox]] got to ''about:preferences#privacy'' then select ''Show Cookies...'')
 +
 +To run use ''/usr/lib/steam-idle-master/start.py'' (it uses Python 2, so ''python2 start.py'')
 +
