A week ago I tried to install Steam, I downloaded the .deb package and installed it, and played a game with it. In the next day, Steam prompted me with this:
Steam needs to install these additional packages:
libgl1-mesa-dri:i386, libgl1-mesa-glx:i386, libc6:i386
And then I did it, I installed those packages. But it broke my system. The next time I rebooted my system, it went straight to tty, no GUI. I tried a bunch of things to fix it but the only way (for me, a new guy to Linux) was to reinstall the system.
Now I'm trying to install it again and I found on the internet that installing
ia32-libs would fix Steam. When I was going to install it, apt-get said that it would need to remove elementary-desktop. This is bad.
Right now I don't know how to install Steam without breaking my system. What's the proper way to install it?
If it's relevant, I'm using integrated graphics with an Intel Core i3 processor, Linux 3.2.0-51, distro: elementary OS Luna 64bit.
