Steam Error: Cannot run as root user.
I keep getting this error when I try to run steam on my Ubuntu 12.10 server.. Does anyone know how to fix this? I do not really feel like re-installing everything again for another user..

Do not run it from root.

why do you have it on a server?

If you intend to run a game server, there is a text based version of Steam specifically designed for that purpose. It can be found here:
Also, never run anything as root unless you are changing system settings that require root permissions. If you run everything as root, you'll find your Ubuntu server does not offer much more security than Windows 98.
