Hello Linux Geeksters. As you know, Valve brought many popular games to Linux via Steam. They have a partnership with Nvidia and make games on Linux possible.
In this article I will show you how to install the Valve Steam client on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia and Linux Mint 13 Maya.
To install Steam on Ubuntu and Linux Mint, do:
$ wget -c media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i steam.deb
$ sudo apt-get install -f
Since Steam has recently gotten support for 64 bit architectures, installing Flash Player Plugin for 64 bit systems (on 64 bit systems) may fix the problem, but I did not test it. I know for sure that if you install the Flash Player Plugin for 32 bit systems (on both 32 and 64 bit systems), works well:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin:i386
