Issue Report: Steam does not run for users with '.' in username
I have been having trouble getting steam to run on my Fedora 17 machine. Whenever I run steam, I get the following console output:
[yuh.@lily ~]$ steam
Setting up steam platform in /home/yuh./Steam
ILocalize::AddFile() failed to load file "public/steambootstrapper_english.txt".
SteamUpdater: Error: Couldn't create cache directory /home/yuh./Steam/package, got error 2
SteamUpdater: Error: Steam needs to be online to update. Please confirm your network connection and try again.
I created another user with '.' in the username, and it has the same problem. I created 2 users without '.' in their usernames, and these users were able to run steam. Thanks for looking into this.
