P.S. "Steam" is the executable file
You don't have
to copy it there inorder to get it to work. It's only a convenience so that you can just run it like I said above; with only the filename. If you aren't going to use it uch or if it doesn't matter much where you run it, you can keep it in your home directory and run it with ./Steam .
Anyway, good thing that you cannot write to /usr/local/bin.
Only root should be able to write there. You can, though, put it there as root, give yourself permission to run it, and run it as a user.
