my Steam seems to suddenly not work. I've tried everything (I didn't reinstall drivers, 'cause after I messed up my friend's computer I'm scared to do that on my computer).

Skype fix method is not working, as I get a message in terminal:

ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

Unknown Steam package 'steam-bin'

Nothing works for me, direct rendering is on as glxinfo says about it. Also my drivers are all good working. Any ideas?

We need more information about your system, what graphics card are you using, what updates have you done lately? –  Bruno Pereira Oct 16 '13 at 14:27
    
Ubuntu 13.04, nVidia GTX 460 SE, no updates to anything what-so-ever –  Xylo Oct 16 '13 at 14:29
    
If you're using ubuntu 64bit maybe you need to enable multilib repos to get what looks like the 32bit libGL? Also, forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=105647 "The Nvidia accelerated 32 bit OpenGL implementation is provided by libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386. Have you installed it?" –  jmathew Oct 16 '13 at 15:06
    
Indeed, I am. Can you put maybe an answer how to do so please? I have no idea what you meant :) I'm still kinda new. –  Xylo Oct 16 '13 at 15:10
    
@plcezarpl See my edit to my earlier comment. You should try installing the package with sudo apt-get install libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386. The :i386 is the relevant part as it downloads the 32bit libraries. –  jmathew Oct 16 '13 at 15:14
