I'm trying to install steam using playonlinux/wine. There was nothing wrong with the installation, but whenever I try to login, steam crashes. After enabling the debugging mode, i got the log below.

By the way I'm kinda new to Ubuntu. So, if you think I should give you more details please let me know.

Thanks in advance, have a lovely day...

Please see this: wiki.ubuntu.com/Valve also include the specs of your equipment. Steam is usually installed via an Ubuntu client which does all the work. The page provided is very comprehensive about it. Good luck –  Geppettvs D'Constanzo Jan 28 '13 at 19:25

To close voters: I think the solution, even as it stands now, is valuable enough to warrant keeping this question open. I've posted it as a CW answer. –  Eliah Kagan Jan 29 '13 at 7:01

1 Answer 1

The OP solved the problem (originally reported in the answer):

After hours, I realized i didn't install my video card driver. If you're having the same problem, don't forget to install your video card's driver.
