jtsn, be that as it may...I've been using Alien Bob's steam client package since day one (having given up on my own package). I've got symlinks in ~/.steam pointing to all the goodies in ~/Steam so either I'm using the wrong package under Xfce, or there are two Alien Bobs. Besides, looking at the steam- "source" packages processed via steamclient.Slackbuild shows that ~/.steam is hard coded.

Which bring us back around to heiser891's seg fault issue on -current. He is probably either missing a dependency, or -current has one that is too new for the steam debugger. Perhaps exploring for other warnings/errors in the console output will provide clues.

Several days ago I installed Haven't tried Alien's steam packages since the very beginning and was surprised how easy was it to install and that it worked out of the box. I tried downloading 1 demo and 1 free-to-play game just to see how it works, and it worked perfectly.

Just wanted to say thank you to AlienBob for doing a good job. And also thanx to Valve and the GabeN for having an ear for non-Ubuntu distros (no nasty dependencies anymore).

Well all the dependencies are still there, they are just self-contained now, in the debian package.
