When I say "run" I'm referring to running the command in Terminal which can be opened by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T Try running sudo apt-get install steam That should work, if not try this (adapted from the Steam Github README): run sudo apt-get install gdebi-core run wget -O ~/steam.deb https://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb. run sudo gdebi ...


Although Steam is available and officially supported for Ubuntu, not all of the games sold there are.

open a terminal and run: sudo apt-get remove --purge libglapi-mesa:i386 libcheese-gtk23 libcheese7 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get install libglapi-mesa:i386 libcheese-gtk23 libcheese7 sudo apt-get install steam
