In December I installed The Steam Linux Closed Beta through some sketchy I'm-not-actually-in-the-beta method. It didn't work of course: "This Version of Steam is not Authorized, etc..." But now I can't transition to the open beta. I remove steam via dpkg --purge and search for any files related to steam, find none, I'm purged, right? No. When I install the open beta from the newest installer on http://store.steampowered.com/about/
I get the same message. Any suggestions?
I also tried removing the ~/.steam directory after uninstalling. Nope.
I reinstalled steam using dpkg and manually installing the dependencies rather than using the Ubuntu Software center, and it works now. Thanks for everyone's advice!
