Re: Steam for linux: Beta on Ubuntu 12.04

Anyone else here access the beta?

I managed to access the client and install a few games, I've only tried Serious Sam 3 thus far without much success.

Running the new Nvidia 310 driver...

So are you in the beta, and if not, how'd you get the client?

Full Disclosure:

I'm taking my chances with getting possible repercussions. (eg: a ban, termporary or permanent)

At the rate where Ubuntu non-beta members are accessing this, I don't think it'll be an issue, but there is still that remote possiblity.

My game rig is an i7, dual boot.
I finally have linux installed and running the way I want, and more importantly the way the wife and kids want, so I'm not installing beta software on it....
However, I just installed a 3tb drive, so a triple boot scenario is possible......Hmmm a new weekend project?

I was assuming you weren't running Ubuntu, so I was going to mention that some folks got it runnning on Arch and Debian as well.

Oh distro. As mentioned elsewhere, Debian is all I know how to run. I don't like ubuntu, but I do like it as a live cd when I screw something up and need to chroot.

It's still very rough around the edges, although most people have posted good results... if anyone can get it running on Debian I'm sure you'd be it.

Good Luck, and post your thoughts back.

Just a FYI: I was given an invite this week as well, after reading the steam boards people have the beta running on Debian well as Fedora.

I had a bit of a time getting Killing Floor running, after using the scripts to install the video driver from Ubuntu Extreme web site I am running full resolution openGL.
