I am very new to Linux. (I have just installed Ubuntu 16.04 on this computer about an hour ago.) I am having difficulty installing Steam. It first said
SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Then I tried doing other things online but they didn't work, and my computer crashed with something that looks like this pink vertical line pattern. (This isn't my picture. I just found it on Google. It has some resemblance to what my crash screen looks like. It goes all checkerboard-like.)
Also, I think I should mention that I didn't use the .deb thing from the Steam website. I ran
sudo apt-get install steam because it said I was forbidden from using the website or something.
I have 2.7GB RAM, an AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 220 Processor × 2, and for graphics I am using Gallium 0.4 on NV4C. (I don't have a GPU, so I don't know how I have graphics.)
Fun fact, my computer crashed while writing this because I had to open the "About this computer" tab to see my specs while I had Firefox open, so this is my second time writting this...
If you could help me, that would be awesome. I just want to play TF2 again. I know my computer probably won't be able to handle it anyways, but I want to get Steam and TF2 anyways.
