Where did you download the Deb file? My guess is it may be a out of date package

There is an open beta out there, you can download it from, and the current free open game is Team Fortress 2.

Remember, the current distro they're developing the Client is Ubuntu, but people got it running on other non-debian systems.

Search this forum for your system, maybe it can also run in it.

The closed beta was basicly Ubuntu only, with he opening of the beta that changed.

1.1 openSUSE / SUSE
1.2 Gentoo
1.3 Fedora
1.4 Arch Linux

thats odd..
have you tried removing and reinstalling it?
Another way I can think of is launching steam with "steam steam://open/games" and then check for updates in the steam client itself (steam->check for steam updates)
