Random guess bad maybe the installer you downloaded is corrupt?

I don't know if there is an installer packaged into the Canonical repos, but have you tried installing steam through your package manager?
Kolito Feb 28, 2013 @ 8:44pm 
I did that, I installed it 3 months ago but this happened today, so I don't know what caused it

Sorry, I misread your OP. I thought you were trying to install it still.

If only we knew what X was xD

I'm prety sure it's saying that the xserver can't create a window?

This just started happening to me today with a steam update.

I'm kinda mad. The beta worked fine, now suddenly an official update kills it
