Help Installing Steam on Ubuntu
When I opened the installer for steam I got this: "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: curl". Has anyone else encountered this error and have a solution or can point me to another discussion with the same problem/solution? Quick Update: Friend of mines who works with the OS said "curl" means it's pretty much impossible to install Steam, but the funny thing is that this doesn't happen to everyone it's more or less sporadic. If you came here in hopes of finding an answer to this problem, I'm sorry to say you've reached the end of the road, but do please leave a comment if someone has found a definite fix and my friend was wrong.

Maybe try to put sudo apt-get install curl in a console? Try that and tell me if worked

Which version of Ubuntu did you install?

Actually, and I don't know how, but I've been prompted to install curl 3 times, and accidentally cancelled it the first 2 times, in the last 3 times I started steam, but was able to run despite this cancel. I'm not trying to suggest that you shouldn't install curl, but... how exactly did I do it without curl? Or, what else happened? O.o

Easy fix for Ubuntu etc.

Step 1

sudo apt-get update

Then try
sudo apt-get install curl

If that doesnt install curl, proceed to step 2

sudo apt-get upgrade

Then try sudo apt-get install curl

That will work.
