Steam for Linux

[Solved] Fatal Error: Failed to load
I'm trying to run Steam on Fedora 17 x86_64, but during the installation, i get this:
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1354925460_client)
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1354925460_client)
and the link on /home/myuser/.steam/bin64 is broken because de .local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_64 doesn't exist.
Someone got any ideas?

Are the 32bit libraries installed? On Ubuntu i had to install "ia32-libs" to make it work.
Seems like they missed a dependency

I just got a repo for Fedora, and it installed those 32 bits libs as a dependencies, guess it was the problem! Thanks

Thanks for the solution. installing "ia32-libs" worked for me. Xubuntu 12.04.1.

Hey if it's not to much trouble what was the repo that you used for Fedora?

Create a file like "steam.repo" with this content:

# Place this file in your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory

name=Steam RPM packages (and dependencies) for Fedora

I have Ubuntu 12.10 installed on an HP dv6-7014 with a GT-650m Optimus (bumblebee installed). To fix this error I followed the instructions in this thread.

I fixed this error on Debian Wheezy (amd64) with export LD_PRELOAD=${HOME}/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/ before running steam

EDIT: fix is incorrect, the proper solution is to upgrade /usr/lib32/ so the symbol gdk_window_get_screen is present (this was due to my ia32-libs-gtk package being from squeeze, and thus too old)

Yeah but fedora is different , it lacks a lot of the libraries that Debian has. Plus it's not a noob distro like Ubuntu you have to compile the steam beta from source.

There is no source available for the Steam Client. Repackagin a deb file is far from "compiling it from source" it's more like extracting a zip file and repackaging it as a rar file so it can be registered in the local package manager...

Have you looked around? I'm not talking about a deb file. That's like a bit rpm

P.S the repos that are stated in this discussion are out dated and don't work anymore.
