I'm using 14.04, and I've recently installed Steam, Deluge, and Chromium, but none of them actually WORK. When I click on them to open, all I get is a blank header bar which goes away the instant I click on another window, and yet the program is still open. What gives?

What happens when you run one of these from the command line? – krowe Jul 19 '14 at 7:21
I've run all three through Terminal. Steam just lists something about "breakpads" and the blank header opens again. Deluge shows a blank header without any sort of code. Chromium does the same. – user307066 Jul 19 '14 at 7:27
how did you install these programs? – Creator Jul 19 '14 at 8:17
I installed them using the Software Center that came with 14.04. – user307066 Jul 19 '14 at 8:35
