It looks like the steam list is empty or is broken and this disturbs your package update. My first try would be to move all the steam-lists from /var/lib/apt/lists to a temporary directory in my home folder and also move the steam PPA settings from /etc/apt/sources.d to that. Then do an apt-get update again and look if the cache setup is now working again. ...

If you run across this problem and are using the 3.13.0-59 kernel, that kernel is your problem. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1479093 The issue has been fixed with the 3.13.0-61 kernel. If you do not have access to that kernel, yet, you can run steam using strace -f -o/dev/null steam from the command line and your library will show ...

This looks like a problem with your GPU drivers, if you've actually installed any. To solve it: Remove any installed nvidia packages: sudo apt-get remove nvidia-173 nvidia-current nvidia-current-updates Install the nvidia drivers: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current-updates

Not sure about in 14.04, but at least in 15.04 steam is in the multiverse repository. that means that you can simply sudo apt-get install steam and it will install the required dependencies. No need to download a .deb file. Just adding this for future use.

You can use command aliases to limit what commands the user can run as sudo - e.g. this /etc/sudoers restricts the user to commands needed to do admin: # define host aliases Host_Alias HOSTNAME = laptop # define command aliases Cmnd_Alias ARCH = /bin/tar, /bin/gzip, /bin/gunzip Cmnd_Alias CRYPT = /sbin/losetup, /sbin/cryptsetup Cmnd_Alias DIR = /bin/mkdir, ...

the most recent kernel -59 breaks several apps including steam and wine. or rather there are some incompatabilites. there's a thread on github confirming it. I reverted to -58 and my steam games are all back and play just fine. however youtube videos are all black now. here is the launchpad

The latest kernel update (kernel ending in '59') on 14.04, and which I installed today, has somehow blocked use of certain parts of my computer's file system. I'm no expert, but the last readable message during boot ended with 'file system blocked'. No idea why, but previous kernels seem to be working OK, and allow Steam to install/access games with no ...

This is known bug for steam in ubuntu 14.04 64 bit. In a terminal run the command sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri-lts-utopic:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic:i386

The following is from Error in installing Steam on ubuntu 15.04 and is by far the easiest answer to this question (as noted above by tahtisilma). I would add that if you want to avoid the pain of having to use the command terminal each time, then you can edit the desktop file either on your desktop, by right clicking and selecting properties and then ...

If you want to go the graphical route you can load up the System Settings window and select Software & Updates. From there go to the Other Software tab and disable the http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/ repo. Also note: Ubuntu Software Center has a tendency to error out due to the failed repo update. I thought it was something I had done as the ...

From time to time I can watch that too, but for other repositories. The problem usually resolves itself. The files are easily broken. Maybe they are just re-created on the server and you got an unfavorable situation or any programmer or administrator made a mistake. All people make mistakes. In this case, no reason to be paranoid panda … ;)

I have the same issue on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Disabling the repos worked great using the sed command but you could also easily just edit the file itself using nano or your favourite editor sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list And just comment out everything you see with a # sign which essentially does the same thing as the sed command.

Update: Repo fixed, use the following commands to update your system: sudo sed -i -e "s/#deb/deb/" /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade Original Answer: If you are experiencing this issue right now (around 2015-07-24), it's because someone at Valve has improperly configured their repo. You can verify this ...

You may have entered your profile name instead of your account name. Your account name is what you use to log into Steam, and your profile name is your public name. If you have another computer that's logged into your Steam account then you can go to Settings and you should see your account name there.

From the Steam website, you can download the Windows version of steam. go here and click the "Windows" link right below the install button. http://store.steampowered.com/about/ Next, run Windows steam using wine (I'm assuming you have wine installed from your comments). Optional: set WINEPREFIX to a special path if you want to isolate Steam from other ...

Wine does not work well with games, seeing as they are complexly written. Instead you should use PlayOnLinux, a better alternative that's also free.

I founded this workaround - not sure if it works As many of you know, Steam on GNU/Linux is coming with some bundled libraries in case the system does not have them, and some of the bundled libraries or drivers are outdated. As a workaround, just delete the files Steam says are broken; this will force Steam to use the system's libs and drivers. ...

I've had some success launching apps through wine from the Linux Steam client. As Michael suggests, you need to use a shell script to launch them. For example, I use this to launch path of exile, named poe.exe: #!/bin/bash unset LD_PRELOAD export WINEPREFIX=/media/stephen/d_extra/PoE/ export WINEDEBUG=-all cd $WINEPREFIX cd drive_c cd "Path of Exile" wine ...

You could try the Add a Non-Steam Game option and direct it to a shell script that launches the game but this wouldn't solve much as it would also launch the Windows Steam client as well because the client is needed to authenticate the game as part of the DRM process. If the Linux client could authenticate DRM for Windows games than all would be fine but it ...

This problem is caused by the Steam's old bundled version of libstdc++.

This does seem to affect Steam on both Windows and Linux, the best way I've found to stop it from happening is to pause the download when the problem starts, then wait 10-15 seconds, then unpause the download and repeat when it happens again.

It's not Ubuntu question, but primarily Wine. See their site https://appdb.winehq.org/. There you can see list of Windows applications and their Wine tests (for different versions, distributions and etc). They have good rank and description (usually) for wine abilities for running different applications or workarounds to run something using Wine.

There are a few ways to do it, you could download steam for windows using wine then download the games, or if you had enough ram you could use virtualbox with a windows os. and if you're a hardcore gamer you could download windows alongside ubuntu.
