installing steam on linux mint debian

make sure you’ve added the debian testing repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free

update the package list
sudo apt-get update

then install equivs (this is used to create a fake jockey-common package) and realpath
sudo apt-get install equivs realpath

download the steam debian installer from here.

install the installer
sudo dpkg -i steam-debian_1.0.0.39-9-2_all.deb

then run steam-debian and then steam

it’ll update itself and you should be up and running…

  1. Thank you very much! This was very useful to me, as it was exactly the problem I had. I wasn’t able to download the .deb package directly from github. Thanks for the instructions and for mirroring the information.
