Have you tried pointing it at the directory you installed Steam to? What happens if you do?

Quick question. Can you buy/install games through the steam client? Does the Steam client open and connect to your account?

After you installed the client did you run it at all? It does need to download and setup a few things first. Maybe you did not complete the install?

/usr/share/doc/steam-debian
/usr/share/doc/steam-debian/changelog.Debian.gz
/usr/share/doc/steam-debian/copyright
/usr/share/doc/steam-debian/steam_install_agreement.txt.gz
/usr/share/lintian/overrides/steam-debian
/usr/share/man/man6/steam-debian.6.gz
