Steam won't start
My steam installation on Fedora 18 won't start. It works on my Ubuntu installation.

Error:

I think your Steam installation may be broken. On my Fedora 18 64b it works just fine. It looks like you might be missing the file Steam/public/steambootstrapper_english.txt. I checked my Steam directory and it's there.

Try reinstalling Steam?

Thanks for your reply.


I already did that. Just like Steam -reset and removing the steam folders.
Nothing seems to work. :(

What version of Steam did you install?

PS: I have no public folder.
