Steam in software center on non-ubuntu distro
I installed Elementary OS on a new partition today. It's built off Ubuntu 12.04 I believe. I do not see Steam in my software center. I went into my sources file and un commented the lines for the partner and extra repos. I thought that is what needed to be available in order to see Steam.

I am posting this from Steam on Elementary btw, I just downloaded the .deb from the website. Just wondering if anyone can explain to me why it doesn't show up and how I can make it show up. I have had issues with other applications not showing up when they show up under Ubuntu, but I can download and install them manually and they work fine.

Thanks.

drag and drop the deb into software center?
Is your os fully updated?

Yes I'm fully updated, and I'm not talking about just installing steam with the .deb in software center, I wanted it to actually show up in the software center like it does in Ubuntu. Steam and other software normally in the software center don't show up when I use this distro.

And you're on Ubuntu? Which release?

I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 and when I first installed I ran the .deb that I downloaded from steam page. After that it was included in Software Center for updates and uninstalling.

I believe part of the .deb install process adds Valve's steam repository http://repo.steampowered.com/steam

Huh weird. I installed the .deb from the website but Steam still doesn't show up.

If you run steam from the terminal does it load?

Looking at the Elementary OS website indicates that it is still in beta, so if steam will load from the terminal, then it may be a bug in Elementary OS. Also even though it's built from Ubuntu 12.04 the list of available packages will depend on when they forked the code base

I'm running Steam right now lol. Steam installed just fine, it's just not showing up in the software center and I had to install it manually.

when you install the deb it adds the repo to the software center thats why it dosnt show.

I seem to be having a reading fail. It's probably a bug with Elementary which can be reported on their launchpad page https://bugs.launchpad.net/elementary
