This is the output when I try to start steam. It closes with the Message "Keine Verbindung zum Steam-Netzwerk möglich..." (No connection to Steam-Network...)

Removing appcache didn't help so far.

Forwarding Ports in Fritz.Box and connecting directly via LAN didn't work. Also the -tcp option didn't. –  eX00r Oct 4 '13 at 12:28

Can you login directly on the Steam-Website: steampowered.com ? –  MadMike Oct 4 '13 at 12:44

Same problem on German Ubuntu forum

http://forum.ubuntuusers.de/topic/steam-verbindet-nicht-zum-server/

Answer from user1990879 works for me fine... One note: don't do it with sudo (some users with this habit will be captured with error "Scannot run as root user"!) And all will works fine. –  areso Oct 21 '13 at 21:01

Removing appcache helped me till a new steam version was released which seems to have it fixed.

You can remove appcache via terminal

rm -Rf ~/.steam/steam/appcache

Don't do this with sudo.
