I Have got passed the 27% bug on Steam installing update :slight_smile:

Heres how…
Install wine and other updates.
Download the latest Steam… (MSI FILE)
What is Steam

Then u’ll prolly get a DLL Missing Error (twice)
click finish / let it try and update and crash at 27%

Reinstall using the same file.
Update will still crash at 27%, but no dll errors.

Now right click the Steam icon on the Desktop & select properties goto permissions and tick the (allow execute).

Then from a Terminal window

cd Desktop


Then u’ll see some code… whilst it updates and loads fine…

./Steam.desktop: line 1: Desktop: command not found

Hello everyone. Nice to meet you all.

Excellent! I installed it too and didn’t have any troubles. Thanks for the tips. I’m sure they will be useful for others with same problems. :slight_smile:

Heres more help for getting a game to download through steam

Create the following script: /usr/bin/steam
(Type this in a console window)sudo pico /usr/bin/steam
(Type this text)#!/bin/sh

Steam wrapper script

exec wine “c:\program files\steam\steam.exe” “$@”

(Alternately, you can download it here: http://ubuntuforums.org/images/uf/attach/gz.gif steam.tar.gz (Ubuntu Forums) (203 Bytes)
Ensure the new file is executable:
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/steam

now from a terminal
steam steam://run/13140
that will load steam and download/install Americas Army 3.

(steam://run/13140 - Was gotten through viewing the source code of the page that has the download link in mozilla.)

Also Wine has the follow DLL’s from WinXp Install and they are configured through the command: winecfg
Add the dll’s to /home/<username>/.wine/…c_drive/windows/system32
(renamed older ones before copy - so not to replace them.)

These are the DLL libs set in winecfg (native, builtin)
iertutil, mshtml, msimtf, normaliz, ole32, secur32, shdocvw, shwapi, urlmon, wininet.
