Ok so I am trying to change my installation directory for steam because Ubuntu is installed on my SSD and I have another terabyte HD. Everytime I try to change my installation path I get this weird graphical glitch.

This is probably a bug and should be reported to Steam. Also, what happens when you try to click 'Next'? Does it work? –  minerz029 Oct 22 '13 at 0:17
Have you tried rebooting the machine? –  mmstick Oct 22 '13 at 0:18
Yes I have the answer below fixed part of it but when I try to select a new directory it comes up with that messed up box. It wont let me change installation directories period. –  Ethan Michael Simonton Oct 22 '13 at 17:21
mmm... I think that it's still a bug. You better report this to Steam Devs. –  Braiam Oct 22 '13 at 18:21

Oibaf just added support for saucy so now is the time to use it:

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/oibaf*; sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers; sudo apt-get update; sudo aptitude upgrade -y; sudo aptitude dist-upgrade -y; sudo aptitude install xserver-xorg-video-all -y

This should fix all of your issues now.

This fixed some of them. I still get that messed up box when I try to change installation directories. –  Ethan Michael Simonton Oct 22 '13 at 17:22
If you haven't reported it already, report the bug with the image you displayed over at github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues?state=open –  mmstick Oct 22 '13 at 18:33
