Do you have a 64 bit System?
Then try to install the 32 Bit Library, type in Terminal: "apt-get install ia32-libs" or it can also be "apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch" or i think "sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libgcc1:i386 gcc-4.6-base:i386 libstdc++5:i386 libstdc++6:i386" can also work

it says
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

libc6 is already the newest version.
and apt-get install ia32-libs says E: Unable to locate package ia32-libs

And "apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch"? I Tried that at Ubuntu 12.04 there it works

What exactly is the 32bit error you're getting? These posts are very vague...

I have to agree; I use Xubuntu 13.04 and I have no problems running Steam, especially during its installation. So it appears there's a problem with sudoing - have you changed the sudoers list in any way?

By the way, are you sure using a 32-bit version of Linux is right for you? Depending on your hardware, 64-bit is the way to go when it comes to full experience with games and Steam.
