I recently setup a new pc with I3 processor and 8GB of RAM with 2TB HDD, I am brand new to Ubuntu and would like to download and install Steam. I downloaded it but when I open it, it doesn't open, the icon loads on dock then disappears after some time. Please help.

  • Make sure you got the right file. It should be named steam_latest.deb. – mikewhatever Oct 16 '16 at 22:28
  • I had the same problem. After launching steam from the Terminal and copying to google I found this workaround: askubuntu.com/questions/617358/… You maybe have to repeat the steps again after an update. – Kevin Majewski fisch02 Oct 16 '16 at 23:13
  • Sorry I am still confused and it still is not working, I downloaded steam straight from their website and it isnt working, I tried to remove it from Software store and it wont do that either. At this point I am lost. I just want to download steam and play some games. – EM0095 Oct 17 '16 at 1:19
