Steam
« on: August 21, 2016, 09:40:30 pm »
just installed sparky and trying linux for the first time and when i click the steam icon nothing happens and when i go to the steam web site and try to install from there i get this from debian installer : error No longer provides steam launcher.

Could not look up the parent vendor of SparkyLinux at /usr/share/lintian/commands/lintian line 1551.

Lintian finished with exit status 2

so how do i get steam ?  :D

also im running the gaming distro of sparky

What Sparky version you have installed - 32 or 64 bit?
Have you fully upgraded the system?
 
Run the command in a terminal emulator:
Code: [Select]
steamand show the full output.
Nothing is easy as it looks.

i dont think that did anything and im not good with the consol thing :( its first time im running linux and im not sure how to to the commands properly or where to enter them i have like 3 consols to choose between LX, UX and X

i tried to follow this link too http://askubuntu.com/questions/451221/ubuntu-14-04-install-nvidia-driver/451248#451248 

and im nor sure how this works i tried but after the sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf command i got stuck 

    sudo apt-get remove nvidia* && sudo apt-get autoremove

After you finish with this one, you should also blacklist the nouveau driver by editing this file with either:

    gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf

or

    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf

…and add these lines at the end:

    blacklist nouveau
    blacklist lbm-nouveau
    options nouveau modeset=0
    alias nouveau off
    alias lbm-nouveau off
