You don't need to download anything, just open a terminal and type "sudo apt-get install steam" and press enter.

Depends on what desktop manager you have. For Unity (Ubuntu standard), open the dash and look for Steam (under Games or use the search box). For Gnome, it's very similar. For anything else, open Menu -> Games -> Steam or Menu ->Internet -> Steam.

Login doesn't work. When putting in the username and password, pressing enter, a "flash" happens, nothing more. I'm on Linux Mint 17 64 bit. Back to login screen on and on.

"updating steam information" - "connecting to steam account".. Just a highlighting 'flash' in the area of default Mint logo on desktop and nothing more. Why is this?

He could also run "steam" from his terminal but if he tries to close it then it'll say it'll close Steam too. :P

Usually takes a while for first login, especially with a slow Internet connection (at least in my experience).

If it crashes could you run it from terminal and pastebin the output, or at least around the area where you try to log in?

This is when you should run it in a terminal and look for error messages. Probably you're missing some required libraries.
