Package Status: Orphaned
The latest stable release of Debian (which is "Jessie" at the time of writing this,) uses libc6 2.19, and should run Steam without the need for this package. Thank you all; it's been fun working on this package. Happy fragging!
This installer is for Debian "Wheezy" and not: testing, sid, or debian variants
Question: What's the difference between this installer and Valve's?
- Answer: This version comes with an extra folder called
x86_64-linux-gnuwhich is from Ubuntu's libc6 deb package, it is saved in
/usr/lib/steam/. The steam-debian excutable loads said folder which solves the need for glibc 2.15
Question: How do I launch?
- Answer: Type in any terminal:
- Note: For users affected by issue #27
LC_ALL=C steam-debianshould be used
Question: Whenever I launch Steam, it asks me to install jockey-common
- As of version 22.214.171.124-3, Steam no longer asks to install
jockey-commonon startup so, this guide isn't really needed, but I'll keep it for legacy purposes
[Method 1] recommended
- Thanks to testian, jockey-common can be installed easily by:
apt-get install jockey-common
[Method 2] if for some odd reason you don't trust testian's repo, you can install jockey-common by executing this script
Question: Where can I find the source?
steam-debian_sourcecontains the source, duh.
