      How about getting flash to work to view video previews of games? Or just getting rid of the flash requirement altogether?

        That already works on my machine (Arch Linux). Just make sure you the have 32bit Flashplugin.

            Aha, so the "problem" is that the steam client is 32-bit. Is that how it's going to be when they roll out their steambox?

              On the steam for linux forums you can also find a solution.

              Some guy who said he was bored made it.

                64-bit

                Steam is only available as 32-bit?
                Or is there 64-bit?

                    Works for me (Xubuntu 12.10), you're doing it wrong.

                        There isn't really any reason for Steam to be 64 bit, other than "nativeness". Especially now with multiarch. It would be nice if they dumped flash, though...

                          Good point(not really)

                          I upgrade to 13.04 Kubuntu but still I can't click anything in teamfortress2.

                          And now not another "you're doing it wrong" post please...

                              On the otherhand, on Linux we've been running fully 64bits OSes for nearly a decade (except for a few bumps in the begining with the not-quite-open-source Java requiring some quirks to get fully native 64bits runtime, and the shitty 32bits-only closed source flash requiring a wrapper).

                              A 32bits steam feels completely out-of-place, specially for something handling games - i.e.: resource-hungry software which would definitely benefit from the 64bit mode.

                              On the other hand, its a formerly windows software and we all know too well how 64bits has been doing meanwhile on that platform. (Only drivers and a few select software are 64bits, almost everything else is still running 32bits).

                              I second that.
                              Specially since steam only uses it to play video preview - something which is very well covered by HTML5's VIDEO - which in turn is *already* supported in steam as it rellies on the HTML5-compliant webkit.
