I have asked this before and have not gotten a sufficient answer. I run on a debian Jessie, but when i download steam - it says there are packages i need but cannot download. I have here a shell command that will allow you to run steam. This will require you to keep a terminal up in the background but it DEFINETLY WORKS.
save this in a .sh in ur /home/user/ folder:
#!/bin/bash export LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6' #Export so all child processes are affected as well export DISPLAY=:0 #export LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose steam #note, I - tomis13lack - would save this in a file like steam to make it easier. I type ./steam.sh to run it and it is great
