I'd like to request that there be a way to show/hide DLC in the Linux store. As more games get ported over, this will become almost impossible to navigate.

/me was removed. People were using it to scam people, somehow..apparently Valve just decided to go and remove /me altogether. Not sure if permanent.

/me is no longer functioning correctly, and as of a few minutes ago, steam isn't rendering correctly within wmfs2 in arch linux.
the chat window is not tiling like it's supposed to be, and instead floats on all desktops above all windows. and i cannot receive messages with /me in front of them, nor can i even use the command anymore.
both of these issues were non-existant 2 days ago, and there have been no updates to wmfs2 or any changes to my configurations, what gives?

Every time I start the steam linux client it says it is out of date and needs upgrading. The client then either updates or I go directly to the main store page until the next time where it says I am out of date. This is very annoying as well as the lengthy time it takes to start and log in under linux. My windows machine starts and logs in instantly so I know that the client can operate much faster. Please fix these issues.

Steam is now unresponsive whenever I start it under unity. I run it under fluxbox and everything works fine. Not sure why its not responding if I start steam from the terminal there are no errors, it just sits there doing nothing, can't click on anything, unity continues to work fine I can switch desktops, open other apps, browse the web but steam does not respond. Looked at github issue tracker and didn't see any reports that matched this behaviour. Using nvidia 304.48 drivers with a GeForce 6200 on LTS 12.04

@alejandronova: That's exactly why with my current install I switched to Debian testing aka wheezy, as I wrote. testing is only a tiny bit behind Ubuntu in package versions, and I'm sure Steam doesn't really need the very latest versions; it's just compiled that way. Which is unnecessary and annoying. It's actually similar to the behavior of Windows applications, where DirectX and .NET and Visual C++ runtime etc.etc.etc. have to be installed over and over again.
Moreover, I didn't complain about missing dependencies, I am ready to hack my installtion a bit. But the Steam package checks dependencies in the .deb *and* at least two other places in the installed scripts. That's complete overkill and makes *the package itself* almost unhackable.
Do any of the Steam devs actually read these forums? If yes, again, please:
amd64, reduce dependency checks, generic Linux installer or just a .tar.gz.

Rattlinger, I've experienced no such issues on Arch (x86_64) and I'm not using the NetworkManager service (the Steam client is up-to-date according to the 'Check for Steam Client Updates' utility).
Jan 22, 2013 @ 4:31am
After the update Steam took endless to start, because NetworkManager was not enabled by systemd. If you had the same issues, use "systemctl enable NetworkManager" to make it work again.
I am using ArchLinux 64x
