[SOLVED] Steam doesn't work under KUbuntu 13.04x64
Steam just doesn't work. It show Fatal error window and that's all. If you want more information, ask and I'll write it here.

ERROR:
Fatal Error: Steam failed to load: *SteamStartEngine(0xff902b00) failed with error 1: CMultiFieldBlob(pSerialized): Bad field - Extends past end of blob

And this is writen in console when I try to start it from there:

I found a way how to fix it. Just write into console:
~$ rm -r .local/share/Steam/ClientRegistry.blob

Also crashing here in the beta. If i opt out, it works fine.
Removing "ClientRegistry.blob" and still doesn't start.

To opt out of the beta updates
~$ rm -r .local/share/Steam/package/beta
