I am having the same issue; I only see buttons for "Web" and "Friends" button. There's also sound, and an animated background. My Steam client says it is up to date, I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Nvida graphics (latest drivers), and XFCE window manager.

My experience on Debian Wheezy on a Sandy Bridge HD3000 (i5-2450M) and GeForce 610M+Optimus+nVidia 304 (all stock Debian repos, including the unofficial official Bumblebee repo):

- It is kinda slow under HD3000. Trying to raise resolution over 1000xsomething to the native 1366x768 of my laptop panel yields a warning of not enough memory. It is still useable... just sluggish. The main buttons (Store/Collection/Community) appear with the text cropped in a diagonal fashion.

- Under the nVidia it looks nice and it runs much better. Use Primus, because optirun is as slow as no discrete GPU.

- This happens on my laptop, no matter the video card: video freezes or goes to a black screen. Controls are still responsive, but I have to play a while with Alt+Tab until video gets responsive again.

- Still unusable since video lags a lot.
- Won't even display properly on Intel HD Graphics.

Seems to work on Kubuntu 12.10 AMD64 perfectly.
