[request] Steam on LMDE Cinnamon x64 w/ Nvidia

Postby bluerabbit4210 on Sat Jan 25, 2014 4:16 pm

Hi all,

Can someone direct me to a guide on installing steam on LMDE Cinnamon x64 with Nvidia drivers? I've tried a few solutions floating around the web and they typically leave me with either a broken x or otherwise unusable cinnamon. Does someone have a guide that's specific to 64-bit LMDE? I've tried the forum search, but 'steam' seems to be all over the place.

Thanks in advance.

edit: I'm on a fresh installation of the .iso with all upgrades.

This seems to be from the era when Steam wasn't in Debian Testing yet. The dependency on jockey-common is not there anymore. Zenity is not required but only recommended for whatever reason. The only thing that still may be relevant is the installation of libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386.

My post was more on the multiarch version of the package... :)
