 +====== 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''​)
 +

 +  * [[Archi Steam Farm]] - Probably a better card idler, with some extra features.
