    Steam not running?

    I have installed Steam through the software centre and through the Terminal and it does not run.
    I am using Ubuntu 13.04 and have recently updated my software and Steam.

    This is what i get when i try to run Steam through the Terminal
    Code:
    Running Steam on ubuntu 13.04 64-bit

    Does this work?
    Code:
    STEAM_RUNTIME=1 steam

    Re: Steam not running?

    Could you try
    Code:
    ldd steam
    and see if it's maybe missing libraries?

    Also, did you try asking at Steam? ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410/discussions/1/ )

    I'm getting

    ldd Steam
    ldd: ./Steam: No such file or directory

    for the output of that command and i've tried steam in lowercase and it's the same. sorry i can't put it in the code box >.<

    and i'll ask there

    Did you uninstall Steam first before reinstalling? If you uninstalled it, did you also delete its folders and files in your home folder? If not, give it a try.
    Code:
    rm -rf .steam/*
    
    cd .local/share
    
    rm -rf Steam/*

    Re: Steam not running?

    Oh, sorry, I should have said
    Code:
    ldd `which steam`
    But try oldos2er's suggestion first. That sounds like it would solve your problem.
