Issue Report: A Steam Engine Instance already exists
Steam reported error just after starting:
Fatal Error: Steam failed to load: *SteamStartEngine(0xfffa7a00) failed with error 1: A Steam Engine Instance already exists.

This bug could not be reproduced, but it could help when revealing another problems, so am reporting it.
Steam on Ubuntu 12.10 (64bit),

This happens to me each time I try to load Steam.

I suspect it's because I had steam on my system before I got my beta key. Un-installing steam it with:

sudo apt-get remove steam

and re-installing does not fix the issue.

No fix as yet but I'll post when I have something.

I just found out a solution/fix to this problem... I know it's late but somebody might find it useful. Apparently steam on linux uses a process called "MainThrd" so when you're looking for the various processes on your task list you may not identify it immediately as steam-related.

Just kill the "MainThrd" process (killall MainThrd in your terminal) and then steam should start normally again.

Thankyou Morgawr - that fixed my Steam not running at all.
