Same here. Then it start this bug (

Started to happen after I downloaded TF2 and made the fix to work in any language. Worth mentioning I did a fresh Ubuntu 12.10 install and it still happens.

Password needed to update /usr/bin/steam file.

I have the same issue.

issue persists. Please Valve fix this. Either by putting all your binaries into the /home directory of the user (which would be, by far, the best variant since it would work on all Linux distributions). Or chown the directory where you store your binaries.

The binaries are stored in your home directory at an appropriate location. It only wants to update the launcher script, which is stored in /usr/bin/steam. We've seen the feedback from you and others on this issue and are considering how to handle it.

GER | tuxator: just FYI, chown would not be safe (other user could replace binary with key-logging binary)
scott_test123: one solution would be making suid binary. But suid binary is not very elegant way and is often considered to be insecure when used by processes except su, ping and maybe some more. Policykit would be more elegant way to do this. Another way could be making a repository and forcing user to update, but it is not very user-friendly. This also adds more platform dependencies...

The main issue is that gksudo is ran by the script with the "--disable-grab" option. Simply removing that option from the command makes the box a lot more trustworthy, mainly due to grabing the focus.

I got this dialog too and if I recall, when I provided my password, Steam never starts again after that. I had to reinstall it and, prior to that, I had to erase all /.steam folder.

daax is correct; uninstall the steam package and delete the .steam directory in your home directory.

After reinstalling the package, steam is working properly.

Edit: I believe this problem occurred after steam crashed while downloading TF2. Can anyone else confirm when this issue started for them?

Hi Tykin, even after the reinstall, I still get this dialog prompting for a password. I didn't provided it though.... and Steam is still working.
