So I have an acer c7 chromebook and I have chrubuntu 13.10 I think and its 64 bit and I installed steam from the software center but when I open it up it tell me I have to install a package and when I type in my pass word and hit enter it says:

You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:

From terminal

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

once done should work if you get a library error

sudo nano /etc/ld.so.conf.d/steam.conf


(you may need never had to use this line)

Ctrl+X save

sudo ldconfig

Steam should now work properly from this point on..

  • It told me that the packege I was trying to install was out of date or doesn't exist and gave me this list of suggestions – user255629 Mar 7 '14 at 16:27
  • these were the suggestions: However the following packages replace it: lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 – user255629 Mar 7 '14 at 16:29
  • and for the first two lines it says those are unknown options – user255629 Mar 7 '14 at 16:30
