    Going for a long-shot, what's your locale?

    Code:
    locale
    Also, what is your GPU(s) and what drivers do you use?

    Code:
    sudo lshw -c video

    Are you able to run glxgears -info?

    Have you installed any ppa with intel-drivers?

    If not, this might be of value?

    Re: Why can't i run steam???

    I have been using Steam on Ubuntu for some time, but encountered same error today.
    Few things happened today, so I do not know which one is causing the issue.
    1. Upgraded from 13.04 to 13.10,
    2. Changed to driver nvidia-319, then changing it back to nvidia-current package.
    3. Started up Steam, then it showed a dialog doing a steam client upgrade.

    Restarting Steam by request...

    I already tried

    a. deleted the "/.local/share/Steam/appcache/"
    b. re-installed the deb file from "http://store.steampowered.com/"
    c. ran command "steam --reset" then it downloaded the update package again but still failed with above messages.

    Any more suggestions to help diagnosing the problem?

    Re: Why can't i run steam???

    Code:
    Major opcode of failed request: 18 (X_ChangeProperty)
    is usually caused by a locale issue. See issue 1420

    You quickly check if this is the problem by running:

    Code:
    LC_ALL=C steam
    If this is your problem, set LANG=en_US.UTF-8 in /etc/default/locale
