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

Hi again from a bright and sunny Amsterdam.  I'm sorry to say this is not the same story for installing Steam, definatly not bright and sunny. I just tried to get Steam up and running again using the amended "install for wheezy package".  Installed as described and then installed the Nvidia drivers as described in the tutorial.  When I reboot I again have lost X.  I restore X by deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf and rebooting. After reboot I rerun sudo nvidia-config and then I invoke steam-debian and it goes through the installation/initialisation  procedure.  Steam tries to open but I receive an error that the OpenGl extension used doesn't match the screen.  When I open nvidia-settings, I don't have the option OpenGL/GLX.  If I reboot X is dead again.  Every time I run nvidia-config, X is not available on reboot.  I have followed your instructions to the letter. I really don't know what else to do. I'm beginning to believe that the whole process is an exercise in futility.  As I said previously, I think the driver is probably cursed  lol !!

@AndyinMokum
Hi from freezing NYC.

Oh well, we tried. By the way, the command is nvidia-xconfig. Hopefully it was a typo in you post and not what you ran... cause that would be brutal. If you ran nvidia-config it would say "command not found"

Could just wait for Jessie to become stable, 'cause it has Steam in it's repositories, so there would be no need for getting a modified .deb from github at all and it would (hopefully) resolve all the driver issues automatically.

Yes, we certainly did give it our best shot.  Yes, it was just a typo lol . It just ain't meant to be with this Fujitsu Siemens. Its a shame because everything else on it just works like a champ. I was thinking the same way about Jessie.  Hopefully that will resolve the issue.  Again many thanks for the help.  If nothing else, it has been an interesting experience for me.  If I find a find a solution, I'll post it.  smile!

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

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.

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

Good thread!

I got steam-debian up and running on my Lenovo X230 (intel hd4000) with cb stable 64-bit.

I just started HL2 and the game is very dark! I tried to change gamma but the slider does nothing. Any thoughts?

EDIT; I have found very little about this on the internet. I have tried other 3d programs and those work fine, so it seems to be a problem with either HL2 or Steam. Also, the Valve logo seems a bit cropped and is green. The menus are normal but the 3d background in the title screen and the game it selfe has very high contrast and as I said, the gamma control does nothing, i can't see the three boarders.

Maby there are some other mesa drivers I can test? Any help would be greate.

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?

Thank you, thank you, parkerlreed you rock smile

EDIT: half-life 2 wouldn't start due to lack of openGL s3tc support, I had to:
sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386
then it worked, hope this helps someone smile

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

A few things:

Those who don't trust the GhostSquad package (it adds a third-party repo to your sources.list, for example), can find some install scripts on-line. Such as here:

https://gist.github.com/grindars/4231563

or my own (32 bit only)

http://pastebin.com/he5jA9Mc

If you don't have an English locale, setting LANG=C will result in an error message and cause some games (CSS in my case) not to start. Workaround:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

and add en_US.UTF8 to the list.

Those using proprietary drivers may look into getting a newer version from Backports for better performance (this may break things):

https://packages.debian.org/wheezy-back … lrx-driver
https://packages.debian.org/wheezy-back … dia-driver

I've written a new Steam script:

It works on my 32bit install, but I'd appreciate it if someone with 64bit could test it.

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

Hi,

Looks like it failed here:

sha1sum -c <<< "f71400e63a5e3746c09b7c291d47244667a1b169  steam.deb" && \
dpkg -X steam.deb cb-steam && dpkg -e steam.deb cb-steam/DEBIAN

Did you say you entered the sha1sum command manually, and it worked?

I've just run that part on a 64bit #! live cd (as well as siduction) and I couldn't reproduce it. However I've seen issues with quotes in the past. A guess; could you provide the output of:

apt-cache policy bash libc6

Note that the sha1sums are there to keep track of changes/updates to the packages, they're not a critical part of the script.

During manual entry I skipped the checksum validation, as I had verified it once during the initial download to be thorough and felt it didn't need to be verified every time thereafter.

Here's the requested info:

z0rt@icarus:~$ apt-cache policy bash libc6
bash:
  Installed: 4.2+dfsg-0.1
  Candidate: 4.2+dfsg-0.1
  Version table:

I was also able to successfully install steam using the OP installer and apt-get install -f to resolve dependency complaints, but I am fine with removing it to continue testing your script.

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

apt-cache output seems fine, I'd thougth the Liquorix kernel maybe pulled in unexpected updates.

I am fine with removing it to continue testing your script.

Well if you say only the checksum commands failed there's probably no need to start over.

I'm still curious though as to why these don't work for you (maybe a bash option set somewhere?). How about

set -x
echo 'f71400e63a5e3746c09b7c291d47244667a1b169  steam.deb' | sha1sum -c

Note the two spaces between the sum and steam.deb. It should output

+ sha1sum -c
+ echo 'f71400e63a5e3746c09b7c291d47244667a1b169  steam.deb'
steam.deb: OK

Thanks for your interest.

That performed as you predicted. I feel like it has something to do with the present working directory not being /tmp/cb-steam for some reason, like the mkdir /tmp/cb-steam && cd /tmp/cb-steam command is passed to the interpreter but not actually executed or something. I myself am still learning the ins and outs of bash and can only speculate. Let me know if you need any other information.

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

Just got steam running on my fresh Crunchbang 11 install.

I used this guide (first post in this thread) but running

steam-debian

didn't work initially. I then tried a few other scripts. Getting various errors about which version of libc was required, or that XInitThreads had not been called. Red herrings the lot of them.

I ended up running

sudo apt-get remove steam-debian
sudo apt-get install steam-debian

Then using smxi to change from graphics drivers from the proprietary Radeon drivers to the XOrg drivers and things magically started working.

So that's my tip, try switching your drivers up.

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

^ Don't use the ghostsquad installer. Besides it usually not working, it imports third-party repos (some even reported their system turning to sid/unstable).

https://github.com/AladW/cb-scripts

If you get a checksum error just comment it out in the script.
