Maybe it's because of the driver?

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on an HP Pavilion dv7 with a Radeon video card.

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! This might be a Steam bug. You might want to report it as one, but I believe @Braiam may have some other valuable ideas for it. –  Eliah Kagan Sep 6 '13 at 2:22
    
Could you edit your question and add the output of lspci -nnk | grep -A5 VGA and glxinfo | grep -i render, also apt-cache policy libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-glx –  Braiam Sep 6 '13 at 2:22
    
hmm no I can't...because "no such file or directory" for all of the above, @Braiam. –  Stephen Stephens Sep 6 '13 at 13:22

Reading Braiam comment I think you should have executed the commands in three steps:

First one: lspci -nnk | grep -A5 VGA

Second one: glxinfo | grep -i render

Third one: apt-cache policy libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-glx

(Tried to add this as a comment but I don't have enough reputation)

hm okay. well I did that, only the second line worked. I edited the field again to reflect it. –  Stephen Stephens Sep 6 '13 at 17:45
    
ohh my, sorry the first one I pointed is also two commands: "lspci -nnk | grep -A5 VGA" and the other "glxinfo | grep -i render" –  Jorge Sampayo Sep 7 '13 at 14:30
