Steam wine issue

Postby Mint@user1 » Mon May 17, 2010 7:49 pm

hi

I installed PlayOnLinux 3.7.6 and then I installed Steam without any problems. After the installation finished I started Steam client it first updated. After it finished updating then it got weird because steam client is shown in the panel and its shown that it is selected but there is nothing displaying in the windows. I took a snapshot to illustrate the problem I am having.

System info:
Linux Mint 8 Helean (GDM) 32-bit

Thank you.

Sorry I don't have an answer to your problem, but there is some good news. It is now confirmed that Valve is making a version of Steam for Linux, so you won't have to use the Windows version via Wine. There is no set release date yet, but rumor has it that it will be this summer.
