Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

Edit: I got it to work!

By the way, shouldn't you add this step to your guide for 64bit users?:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

Also, I think it's necessary to do an apt-get update as well (the problem I ran into I think).

I used the Kano script a long time ago on my desktop, and I just tested your guide on my laptop. It works.

Thanks man, very useful! Perhaps edit your post to specify that this only works for Waldorf

Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

@Tim:  GPU/APU driver problem maybe?  This sounds like a scenario where Radeon in particular would truly suck.

Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

Hmm, returned no errors during install process, however when I try to run I get this old friend:

zach@sweatshop:~/gist4231563-45bbf171953630f9b11acec71b8cc6fa70f0abe0$ 
zach@sweatshop:~$ steam
bash: steam: command not found

Any ideas?

Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

zachr, try

cd ~/.steam/steam
./steam_on_debian.sh

Can you launch it from there?

PS You should restart your PC after installation or just run

source ~/.bashrc

to update variables.

Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

Hello! I seem to be unable to start steam.

When I enter the following commands:

envy@crunchboom:~/downloads/gist4231563-45bbf171953630f9b11acec71b8cc6fa70f0abe0$ sudo ./steam_bootstrap.sh 
[sudo] password for envy: 
Setting up Steam content in /root/.local/share/Steam
Installing Ubuntu packages
Installing desktop files
Adding Steam to PATH
To uninstall:
rm -rf 
rm -f everything steamish from /root/.local/share/applications
remove [[ -f "/root/.local/share/Steam/setup_debian_environment.sh" ]] && source "/root/.local/share/Steam/setup_debian_environment.sh" from /root/.bashrc
envy@crunchboom:~/downloads/gist4231563-45bbf171953630f9b11acec71b8cc6fa70f0abe0$ 

It looked like it worked, but I don't see the /root/.local/share/Steam directory. Steam is missing, any ideas? (I did follow the rest of the instructions)

Re: Steam on #! Waldorf

Maybe you should edit the guide not to run as root-user. Besides that I found it really helpful. Thanks.
