Just as the title says. I'm pretty new to Ubuntu, but I've used it before about a year ago. I had help then, but now this seems pretty confusing. I've already read the Installing Software article, I'm currently trying to install Steam and when I do:
cd ~/downloads/ sudo dpkg steam_latest.deb
I get a error saying that I need python-apt and I tried doing
sudo apt-get python-apt
but it says invalid operation can you guys list the ways to install an application, and describe it like I'm five? Thanks.
Edit: I'm not talking about using wine in this case, just using the actual package from Valve themselves.
