The link to the Ubuntu Glibc in that install script seems to be out of date and no longer available, so I commented out the relevant lines and used this version instead, from here. I extracted the deb archive and copied all the files in the 'lib/i386-linux-gnu' directory into '~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32', and now I'm able to run steam. [...]?

I posted too soon. It turns out that though I could run Steam, I couldn't run any games and was still getting the missing GLIBC error.

I deleted everything and used GhostSquad57's Re-write of Valve's deb package, and everything just worked.

So to summarise installing Steam in Waldorf 64-bit (not considering GPU drivers which I expect I'll need to do next if the open source ATI driver, which I believe is installed by default in Waldorf(?), doesn't give good enough performance):

Add i386 repositories, update package list and install dependencies

Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

Hey all, I am a new user after many years away from anything linux, and I am pretty noobish. I installed steam on a fresh install of Waldorf on AMD64. I used the steps presented here and GhostSquad57's deb and it started up flawlessly. However, I was having issues actually getting 3D games to run so I installed my proprietary fglrx drivers. That too, worked without a hitch, (truly shocking me) but now steam is broken. When I attempt to run steam I now get:

Error: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:
libGL.so.1
/home/username/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 42:  4072 Segmentation fault      zenity "$style" --text="$*" 2> /dev/null

Steam will in fact even launch a graphical error box telling me "Fatal Error: Failed to load steamui.so" I am assuming that installing my proprietary 64bit drivers has made it so steam has no 32 bit drivers up to rely on. I don't mind experimenting a bit, but I am not too confident in my Linux abilities when it comes to working with drivers, so I figured I would come here to ask what my next steps should be. I would be happy to provide any additional info people may need, and many thanks in advance.

Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

Try

 sudo apt-get install lib<whatever>:i386 

See if that helps with Steam.  Steam relies on 32 bit libs.  smile

Okay, I installed the libgl1-fglrx-glx:i386 and now steam will run, but it warns me that direct rendering isn't enabled (It is, I checked glxinfo) and attempting to run any game either seg-faults (Metro Last Light), gives a gray screen but plays audio (Aquaria) or in half-life 2's case throws this Error: "Could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glGetError'! Either your video card is unsupported, or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated."

I tried creating a symbolic link between steam's bin folder and the required libraries as some suggested on other sites before I reinstalled, but that failed to work.

Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

Hmm...try uninstalling the amd64 glx libs and run it again.  Or, optionally you could launch steam with

LD_LIBRARY=/path/to/your/32/bit/libs steam

or something to that effect.

That worked like a dream, just loaded up HL2 and Metro to test it out. Many thanks for your help!

Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

I tried what you said and its not working. When I try to "unarch it" I get this.
"tar (child): gist4231563-45bbf171953630f9b11acec71b8cc6fa70f0abe0.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now"
What do I do? I didn't find a "what to do if this happens" section of your post.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

^ Another "steam-debian" binary? roll

https://github.com/AladW/scripts/blob/master/cb-steam

If it doesn't work, don't mind asking - I don't bite. Usually.

Doesn't work because the current version of CrunchBang doesn't like libc6:amd64 versions above 2.13, and it needs 2.15

My workaround was to edit my sources to jessie and grab the updated 2.19 or whatever it is. Worked immediately after I made some adjustments to the first guy's script (similar to yours wink )

Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

Without providing details, I assume it works with the insructions on the github page. As to your "workaround" - congratulations, you've just broken your system.

Actually no? I just grabbed the i386 libc6 needed for steam and left the 64-bit one my system depends on alone.

Though I just switched back to use your script.. There's one minor error which is the url for the security.ubuntu.com is broken (they changed their urls, they don't have ubuntu 10.5 files anymore), lemme grab one to replace it...

http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/ … _amd64.deb
http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/ … 9_i386.deb

Editing that nice script to 10.9 instead of 10.5, and temporarily removing checksums for testing ;3

EDIT: after switching the files to ubuntu10.9 and removing checksums (just because I'm too lazy to grab checksums for those two), it seems to be working immediately and flawlessly! Love the script, works well! Thanks!

I may be a tad late, but I can't seem to get steam to start... Everything installs accordingly as the guide but once I try to launch steam, it just says it's not there.

...kind of a noob at linux, only really used Ubuntu before  monkey ... thanks in advance

Try the script talked about above made by Alad ^

That one seems to work the best.
