I'm not sure (not too experienced with debian outside of ubuntu) but can you set the .deb file as an executable?

In wheezy is very hard to install steam.
Upgrade do jessie - no problems :)

In wheezy libc6 is to old.

could you post a download link?

You must edit Your /etc/apt/sources.list and place a jessie repo.
Then "aptitude update && aptitude upgrade"

Or simple reinstall os with debian testing (jessie)
