For regular Ubuntu versions you can download the Steam installer right from Steam and double click it and it will open software center. With blackbuntu based on an old version of Ubuntu it may not even run Steam.

Just curious, why would you install Steam on a distro based on Ubuntu 10.10 that was designed for penetration testing? The webpage says clearly:

Does this seem like the best choice for a gaming platform?

according to their facebook page, the developer(s) are/is looking for help developing it. maybe a job for Empiracy?

their website's down and according to sourceforge their final release is 3 years old.

but even if it wasn't, i fully agree with jkirchner.
