Missing 32 bit library
I installed Steam onto Ubuntu and I get the following error message:

"You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:
not"

I have no idea what this means, any help would be appreciated!

This should be fixed in the latest update:
http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/archive/precise/steam_latest.deb

After you install it, do:
steam --reset

Run this command in the terminal.

Ctrl + Alt + T.

slouken, I'm getting a similar problem. I downloaded steam, ran it and i get the error:
E: Unable to locate package libgl1-mesa-dri
E: Unable to locate package libgl1-mesa-glx
E: Unable to locate package libc6

and I redownloaded through the link you posted.

I tried doing steam --reset in the terminal, but that did not fix it.

I'm using ubuntu 12.10 64 bit


When I type steam into the terminal, i get this and the package installer that always fails.

Package libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 needs to be installed
Package libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 needs to be installed
Package libc6:i386 needs to be installed

How do i fix this?

Thanks to Aikari Tsero, we figured this out.

if [ "$(dpkg --print-architecture)" = "amd64" ] && ! dpkg --print-foreign-architectures | grep i386 >/dev/null; then
echo "Fixing architectures..."
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
fi

I'm going to add this to steamdeps so it's automatically taken care of in the future.

Thanks!

I am having the same problem. Would you just suggest to wait? Or should I perform some sort of task to expedite the process?

Forgive me, I don't understand, do I type that into terminal or do I just wait. Thanks.

Problem solved. found another thread with it where you said to run it. Ran that, steam worked. Thank you very much. Also, ubuntu has a lot of options windows should have. Like be connected to wifi and ethernet yet choose which to actually use when you want.

Okay, for anyone who hasn't solved it already, you can do this:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install steam-launcher
steam

(Or you can use update-manager to update steam-launcher)
