I managed to run steam under gentoo. and it seems to be working fairly well up till the login screen and 1 or 2 errors. (missing texts for errors are "DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.N-" and "no system implementation" of network manager... i hope i don't need to have that installed for steam to work?)
anyways, as you can see the text on all the menu buttons are scrambled, if i go to login as an existing user and type in username and password, the letters i type will not show at all (not even the ********) but i could make it read the steam license agreement thing.
Is this just a case of missing fonts? if so... which ones?
