Greetings to all. Surely, many will already be enjoying Steam for the platform GNU / Linux. However, many of those who use Debian Stable (Wheezy)They are breaking their heads from trying to install Steam.
I will show you how to do it without having to die trying, although most of the results had been unsuccessful, due to the fact that the dependencies it requires are in the Ubuntu repos, and / or multi-architecture support had not been implemented.
In order to do this feat, we must do the following:
Install Debian Wheezy multi-architecture support:
apt-get install multiarch-support
Install the dependencies that steam asks us (unfortunately, from Ubuntu), through this procedure:
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/29081229/Steam/debian_install.sh && ./debian_install.sh
Download the Steam package through this procedure:
wget http://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb && sudo dpkg -i steam.deb
Wait for the client to update, log in and that's it.
I hope it has been useful for those souls who have killed themselves looking for a way to install Steam without dying in the attempt.
PS: Here is my screenshot of my Steam in my Debian Wheezy:
