64 bit right? In that case, install the package «ia32-libs».

I have 64 bit system. ia32-libs is already installed

sudo sh -c 'echo "/usr/lib32\n/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa\n" >> /etc/ld.so.conf.d/steam.conf' && sudo ldconfig

And use search!

it's correcting for your user
sudo sh -c 'echo "/usr/lib32\n/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa\n/home/werm/Steam/ubuntu12_32\n" >> /etc/ld.so.conf.d/steam.conf' && sudo ldconfig

Try this command!
------------------
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib32:/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH/usr/bin/steam:~/.steam/bin32
~/.steam/bin32


if not worked, try remove the local usser folder, re-execute using menu and repeat last step
rm -rf ~/.steam/bin32

don't like the fact i have to start it from the command line; would prefer it to be through the double click icon on the desktop. adding it to the /usr/bin/steam script doesn't help, either, because updating causes the script to be re-written, over-writing my change.

a little irritating; hopefully the team fortress beta will help liven things up.

I'd like to thank you as I was getting this error on Mint 14 and it fixed my issue.

If by chance you are using a laptop with hybrid graphics (such as Nvidia Optimus technology in my case) and none of the solutions above work, try installing Bumblebee and use the terminal command
