Re: Steam on Debian Wheezy 64bit (and probably 32bit too!)

Alad i would like to install steam using your script. Im using 32 bit #!

However im not great at linux, how exactly do I use the script?
Ive tried pasting the entire script code into a new .sh document and executing it... nothing happened

Cheers for any advice.

@woof --- have a look at post #123: Alad says his script is no longer working... sad
@CSCoder4ever has said that the GhostSquad57 installer still works, try that: https://github.com/GhostSquad57/Steam-I … for-Wheezy

Re: Steam on Debian Wheezy 64bit (and probably 32bit too!)

Both my script and GhostSquad's work for 32bit, neither do for 64bit. If nothing happened, probably the checksums changed (I keep checksums to keep track of Steam changes).

edit:

Certain games include their own launch script that can change the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable. These games include: The Swapper and You Have to Win the Game. The fix is quite simple, look around $HOME/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common for the game's content directory. Once you're inside the directory, try to find a launch script, (anything with launch in the name). Open it with a text editor. Look for LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. and replace with LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.:/usr/lib/steam/i386-linux-gnu/:/usr/lib/steam/x86_64-linux-gnu/

edit2: sums are the same. Did you chmod +x the script?

You have to execute the script from a terminal. You can't just open it from Thunar.
