When I start steam from the sidebar, it tries to load, but crashes. I have tried restarting the computer. Once I got the steam updater window, but steam crashed when it was finishing the update. When I try and run it from the terminal, this is what I get:

~$ steam
Running Steam on ubuntu 13.04 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically  

nothing happens.

Please open the Terminal application, run Steam through it typing steam and pushing the Enter key, so after crashing it will probably close if not close it by yourself, return to the opened Terminal and copy and paste here all the lines from [user]@[hostname]:~$ steam to the end. Doing so will allow us to see what is really happening through the log. –  Zignd Sep 14 '13 at 0:34
