If anyone still uses the Mt. Gox Google Gadget, I fixed it so it’s working again. Mt. Gox changed their URL in March, and I hadn’t noticed.
Steam is made specifically for Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit. I run Xubuntu 12.04 64-bit, so after reading a few sites, I finally got things working properly. From here, I’m assuming you’ve already installed Xubuntu and the proprietary driver for your video card.
1) Snag the 32-bit version of Flash from Adobe. Mine defaults to 64-bit Linux, so I had to select the different operating system option at the top of the page. Select the 32-bit, .tar.gz package and download that.
2) Extract the tarball, and copy into the /usr/lib/browser-plugins
From a terminal window
tar -xvzf install_flash_player*
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/browser-plugins
sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/browser-plugins
3) Install 32-bit libraries
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs -f
sudo apt-get -f install
4) Download and install Steam
sudo dpkg -i steam_latest.deb
Steam is finally available on Linux.
There are several ways to enable .bit on your browser. This is what I’ve found to be the most seamless.
