As others have stated: thank you! I probably wouldn't have switched over to mainly Linux if it wasn't for Crunchbang. It showed me that the Linux experience didn't have to be bloaty and that I had more freedom and control over what I wanted it to be.

I wonder whether I might get some Steam on sid support here?

I have installed steam successfully (as far as I can tell), but whenever I try to run it, I get the message "OpenGL GLX extension not supported by display". My laptop has an integrated Intel Graphics Card and is 64-bit, so I think I require libgl1-mesa-glx:i386, which I have installed (and on a test installation of Xubuntu I put on the other partition, Steam worked out-of-the-box, so it's not an issue of the computer not being able to do it...)

I have googled around, and think I have confirmed that I do have the correct things installed, but I can't work out where to go next...

If you are on sid you don't follow this guide. Enable multilib like before, make sure you have non-free sources enabled, and then just apt-get install steam.

Step 3 is NOT the graphics drivers. This error seems like you are missing the graphics drivers for your system. Do you have an Nvidia or ATI video card?

Hey running into some problems with steam.

when I try to start it up I get a steam error saying, "OpenGL GLX extension not supported by display" what can I do here?

Do you have proprietary drivers installed for your video card?

Wow, this is strange. I installed it perfectly, even downloaded Football Manager 2014 demo. But now I cant start it anymore. It says :

Error: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:
libc.so.6

And i have it installed

Are you running steam or steam-debian? You need to be running steam-debian

is there a way to install (steam) from testing while staying on stable??
thanks..

No. That would cause breakage from the newer package versions.

Has anyone managed to fix the glibc error? (It'll rear its head the first time after steam updates the client)

I've been trawling the web but I haven't found a fix that works :-(

Tried this one: http://www.yannbane.com/2013/02/how-to- … 4187672398

But got the following error at the last stage:

throne777@theninthgate:~$ mv /tmp/libc/lib/i386-linux-gnu/* ${STEAMLIBS}
mv: target `/tmp/libc/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libutil.so.1' is not a directory

So I manually just moved the files in that folder over to the 'steamlibs' folder in home. But that doesn't seem to have worked.

Tried doing this one: http://www.sarplot.org/readpost/45/Stea … Wheezy_70/
Ran this:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/.local/share/Steam/steam-lib/i386/lib/i386-linux-gnu/:~/.local/share/Steam/steam-lib/amd64/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

Running this does (/solves) nothing, so I assume you need to change it, but I have zero clue what to change it to.

Any help would be much appreciated ^ ^

What method did you use? The first post should just work if you are on wheezy or higher.

Edit: If you have tried past installer you need to remove the steam lines from the bottom of ~/.bashrc

As a footnote to my install, Steam is up and running perfectly, but for the fact I can't use the client window to browse games; it gives an error that I need a newer version of Flash. Been there, done that and it's not a big enough problem to risk hosing up my system (again) trying to get a compatible version. I can browse Steam fine directly from IceWeasel, so this is a minor glitch. I look forward to the day when Flash dies the final death.

Hmm weird. I am able to use the in Steam browser just fine. Doesn't have flash but meh the pictures do fine.

It seems the standard install of CrunchBang has GLIBC 2.13, but 2.15 is required. Did you upgrade it by way of adding a repository?

No. Are you trying this on Statler or Waldorf? It is only designed to work on Waldorf. The script should have downloaded libc6_2.15-0ubuntu10.2_i386.deb to the folder it resides in.

So after a while of searching for the simplest way to do this I think I have found it.

1. If on a 64bit machine enable multiarch

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update

2. Download the steam-install-for-wheezy package and install it

wget https://github.com/GhostSquad57/Steam-Installer-for-Wheezy/raw/master/steam-debian_1.0.0.48-5_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i steam-debian_1.0.0.48-5_all.deb

If it says its missing a package just
sudo apt-get install -f

3. Now before you run steam you need to install the i386 package that provides libgl.so.1 and matches your graphics card
     If on a 64bit system

sudo apt-get install libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386

(This is just for nvida. If you find a package that matches your card just leave a comment below. Found this page that might help you in deciding http://packages.debian.org/cgi-bin/sear … &arch=i386 )
     If on 32bit (untested)

sudo apt-get install libgl1-nvidia-glx

4. Run "steam-debian", let it download the client, and you should then be presented with the login screen.

5. If you get a terminal window at launch that complains about not having jockey-commnon run

sudo /usr/lib/steam/steam-debian-depends.sh

6. Enjoy!

PS: If you just so happen to be running sid you can just run "steam" to open steam. The "steam-debian" script isn't even needed!

Here's my current dual monitor setup. Ignore the top on the left and the bottom on the right. Those areas aren't viewable on the screens.
