[Solved] Steam - Cannot install 'libc6:i386'
I've been trying for two days to get Steam installed, but no luck. Might be that I'm new to this OS but it's still really frustrating.

Keep getting Cannot install 'libc6:i386'

Specs: ASUS N45SL
Intel Core i5-2450M CPU@2.50 GHz
Windows 7 64-bit
nvidia Geforce GT 635M 2GB

Your using 64 bit and trying to install an 32bit package. You need multiarch. ia32-libs.
I don't know what that is, but the Ubuntu Software Page says the one I downloaded is Steam (64-bit)
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs. Try that. Then attempt to install Steam. I use Archlinux myself and been a while since i been around Ubuntu. If there are additional steps, i'm sure somebody will give some feedback.

Thanks for the feedback, I was able to install it (a big improvement) but when I start it it says the below I pasted. I'm new to this so I really have no idea how to get these things like when people of forums just say

I have no idea how I'm supposed to try that let alone understand what that is... sorry if it sounds stupid and thanks for the patience!

I'm having a similar problem.
The downloads on the website don't lead to a proper steam.
It says, "Wrong architecture 'i836'"
Open up a terminal.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
sudo apt-get upgrade

Then a reboot is probably required.

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update

it should fix your problem

Where exactly do I put that in?
I don't know how to get to terminal.

Thank you. After I enter in the first one, it asks for a password. Should I enter them in both at once?
EDIT: Nevermind

Hmm, I updated by going to the update center, and it downloaded a bunch of stuff. Then I rebooted - then it got stuck on a black screen... I rebooted it 3 times and it's still a black screen. I switched back to Windows now to reply to this, any suggestions?

Mine works. Thank you all so much.
Thanks a lot for the help everyone! I finally managed to run Steam and Team Fortress 2, it's all thanks to the great and helpful community, you guys are awesome!
