Since Steam came out on Ubuntu (official) I've installed it and tried to log in but it didnt work at that time. I thought the servers were offline and I would try it later again.
Steam is giving me the following error message :
"Steam is having trouble connecting to the Steam servers".
Some weeks have passed now but I'm still not able to log in. I've researched a lot of things and it is definitely not my router blocking steam, because I'm running a double boot and I'm perfectly able to run steam on my Windows 8 version.
As I'm relatively new to Ubuntu and the world of Linux I wonder if there is any integrated firewall in Ubuntu that may be blocking this, or does someone else have any suggestions or even better ; solution(s), to my problem.
I'm currently running on Ubuntu 12.10 and I've installed the most recent version of Steam via the Ubuntu software center. I've tried reinstalling it.
