I've already installed Steam, but when I click on the program I get this message
ERROR- You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: not
I don't know what to install or even do.

No problem. Welcome to Linux and Ubuntu, by the way.
First, if you didn't install Steam from the Ubuntu Software Center, and didn't try, see if you can install it that way, removing Steam from your system beforehand. You may need to run
sudo apt-get update in a terminal beforehand (when it prompts you for your password, it's typing even if nothing shows up onscreen). I've also noticed that Steam only shows up in the Software Center when you click "show technical items" at the bottom.
If that doesn't help, see the Known Issues section on the Valve Developer wiki. Follow the instructions for Debian-based distributions:
sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6
Let me know if these instructions don't make sense.
This seem to happen on every 64 bits OS.

gksudo gedit /etc/ld.so.conf.d/steam.conf
Add next two lines to file:
Now you should be able to run Steam

14.04 LTS (with
elementary OS 0.3.2 Freya 64bit), and this worked perfectly for me:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo add-apt-repository multiverse sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install steam
How to run Steam with ATI 13.04 on Ubuntu 13.04 64bit with kernel 3.8.12:
Create startup file in your home directory:
sudo gedit st3am.sh
put this in file:
Save & make executable:
chmod a+x st3am.sh
Make shortcut and move to desktop or add to your application menu
Have a fun :)
I had a similar problem with nVidia and Steam, using a GeForce 650ti with the 331 drivers.
I ended up doing CTRL-ALT-F1 and logging in, then
sudo service lightdm stop,
telinit 3 (perhaps not needed after the service stop), and
sudo sh NVIDIA*.run.
The original 331 drivers were removed, and the installation (this time) went fine, and Steam works.
