Running Saucy Salamander 13.10 64-bit.

Installed steam via Ubuntu Software Center.

On installing, Steam warns: OpenGl not using Direct render, and links here (unhelpful) https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=9938-EYZB-7457

Running AMD beta linux drivers 13.25.18-140108a-166862E-ATI on a Radeon 290x

glxinfo reports Direct rendering is YES

My user is part of the video group as well

Steam will run, but any game I try to load up with Steam does not seem to want to launch.
