Issue Report: Not downloading!
I got the .deb file and opened it with Ubuntu Software Centre, and it gave me this error message: "Dependency is not satisfiable: multiarch-support(>=2.15-0ubuntu10.2)".
What does this mean? I have a Single-Core AMD CPU at 1.83 ghz that have 32-bit processing, 1gb of RAM, nVidea GForce620 GPU, Ubuntu 11.10, and 100gbs HDD.

It's not working still. I check on my processer, and it's only 32-bit.

Hmm. Try this command: sudo apt-get install multiarch-support

It still gave me a msg. I'm on a diffrent Ubuntu Computer, i'll try there.

We've found that once you fully update your Ubuntu 12.04 system (for example apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade) you'll find that multi-arch 2.15 is available (or already installed). Then you can dpkg -i steam.deb. Or to do it in one step, either use gdebi steam.deb from the command line, or double click the .deb to launch Ubuntu Software Center and press install, either of which will ensure your system is updated appropriately before installing the .deb.

Even if i have a 32-bit processer?

You see, this is kind of a funny problem to me. I did everything I heard here that could possibly fix the problem, but it kept giving me the same error. So I just reverted everything back to how it was, uninstalled steam and reinstalled the graphics driver for whatever reason.

After that was done, I tried to install steam again. And everything after worked just fine somehow.

It's strange how to me it seems to have magically fixed itself, but I'm not going to complain.

But that still doesn't answer my question, will Steam work on 32-bit processers?

Yes, it works on mine (32-Bit AMD). Whats wierd is, all the problems Ive found on here regarding multiarch-support error are for users with 64-bit processors.

Yes, on my second computer, it has a 64-bit AMD CPU, and me and my dad are trying to install the 32-bit stuff, it takes for ever!
