    The beta has some bugs, I think.

    There were some bugs on the input control when registering a new account where the carret in the textbox would insert text in reverse. I.e typing "hello" appeared as "olleh".

    The client uses Flash, I don't know how to get it to work.
    Maybe they should use HTML5 <video> instead?
    Copy libflashplayer.so (32-bit) to ~/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/plugins

      Steam is 32-bit only?

      Hence need to get the 32-bit Adobe Flash Player.

      I manually downloaded the x86 package including the libflashplayer.so and copied it to "/usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so". This is with openSUSE but should be the same with other 64bit systems too (maybe the folder name changes to /usr/lib32/... or /usr/lib/mozilla/ or something like that).

        Now that is good news (besides the use of Flash) - and a good start for the coming year.

          AFAIK, VMware ships their Workstation software as a large bundle with all libs included so it works cross-distro with no additional deps handling. I can see Valve doing the same for Steam.

            Works great here. A couple of minor bugs I need to report.

            I would like systray support mind.

              I am on open suse 64 too, but it is still not working.


              Do I need to do something with those folders too ?

              usr ( bin, lib, share )

                usr ( bin, lib, share )
                1. Download http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...2.3.1.i586.rpm
                2. Extract the rpm with ark ( ark -a -b flash-player-11.2.202.238-2.3.1.i586.rpm )
                3. Create folder /usr/lib/browser-plugins if it does not exist ( sudo mkdir /usr/lib/browser-plugins )
                4. Copy libflashplayer.so from the extracted folder to /usr/lib/browser-plugins ( sudo cp usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/browser-plugins )
                5. Restart steam

                Optionally 7. Remove downloaded and extracted filed ;-)

                  Not blaming you, but that stopped flash in firefox.
                  (steam keeps on claiming its the wrong version )

                  After uninstallng flash.
                  And file browser system admin I was able to remove the files in . /usr/lib/browser-plugins
                  Then through yast installed flash, and atleast for jtv its working again.

                  I give up for now. ( justin tv: http://www.justin.tv/ )

                  ( flash not working does prob have to do with me installing 32 bit flash
                  steam was still not happy though.
                  Like it was not happy when I had copied the 32bit so, to the right folder.

                      Maybe other 32bit libraries are missing. You can check if something is missing with "ldd libflashplayer.so" (on the 32bit flash version obviously) it should look like this:

                      Code:
                      ldd /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so
