Hello everyone!  I have been using #! for a few months but just now decided to join the forums after getting lots of help from them.

A little about myself:
I am currently a student studying geology in Texas.  I am 23 years old and enjoy reading A Song of Ice and Fire, hunting, fishing, camping, and videogames (pretty typical).

My linux experience:
I started using GNU/linux after installing Ubuntu on an old desktop, then on my laptop.  After almost a year of Ubuntu I felt like I had learned next to nothing about linux.  I don't have any problem with Ubuntu, but it wasn't what I was looking for.  After the update to 13.10 I decided to switch instead of upgrade, and found #!.  I had been thinking about Debian for a while, but #! can with some configurations that I liked so I wouldn't have to change as much out of the box (also the badass name).  I already feel like I have learned much more about using the terminal and linux in general than I have with Ubuntu.  I almost had as much fun getting Steam to run as I did actually playing games on it.

These forums have helped me a lot so far, thanks all.

#2 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » Steam on Debian Wheezy 64bit (and probably 32bit too!) » 2013-11-27 14:39:14

Thank you so much for this post, I was finally able to get steam running after using #! for several months.  A few quick changes that worked for me: 

First, for step 2 I used

https://github.com/GhostSquad57/Steam-Installer-for-Wheezy/blob/master/steam-debian_1.0.0.44-3_all.deb 

instead of the link given (I got a 404 for the OP link).

Once I did this, I got an error that I needed realpath, and installed it:

sudo apt-get install realpath

Then install and run:

sudo dpkg -i steam-debian_1.0.0.44-3_all.deb
steam-debian

Hopefully this can help anyone who is having trouble.
