Steam for Linux

Steam crash log file location?
I am very sorry if this has been asked before...
Where may I find a log file for steam (if one exists)? Like a crash log or something. I am running Ubuntu 12.04 32bit

Try looking in ~/.local/share/Steam/ and ~/.steam/

There's a log directory, but there's no file with the terminal output. Anyway I found a workaround by starting Steam like "steam > /var/log/steam 2>&1" and chmod /var/log/steam to 666.

for me it was /home/<user>/.steam/error.log

its where i found out why my games weren't loading. in my case my permissions were changed in certain files so I just re-configured them and voila!

hope this helps someone else

im running Debian 8 "Jessie"
If you have trouble with Source games, use -condebug launch option for the game.

For TF2 the log is with game files under common/Team Fortress 2/tf/console.log. As long as -condebug is active it will keep appending to that console.log file. If you rename that file a new console.log would be started.
