I am running Ubuntu 12.04 and when I try to download Steam, the Ubuntu software center pops up and I receive this message.

Can't download Steam on Ubuntu "dependency is not sastifactible: curl"

How do I resolve this issue?

You may just need to install curl. Press ctrl+alt+t, type sudo apt-get install curl. – No Time Jul 18 '14 at 0:02

open a terminal and run "sudo apt-get install curl" then "sudo apt-get install -f" then try installing. If it gives another dependency then replace curl in the first command with the name of the new dependency
