DOWNLOAD LINK : http://www.mediafire.com/download/di2d51edxdcajta/steam-debian_1.0.0.43-1_all.deb
2.copy and paste this code
#!/bin/bash
#inspired by kochd’s script
# installs equivs which is used to generate fake packages
sudo apt-get install equivs

# creates a file called ‘tmp’
> tmp

# appends package info to tmp
echo “
Package: jockey-common

” >> tmp

# builds fake package
equivs-build tmp
# installs fake package
sudo dpkg -i jockey-common_0.9.7-0ubuntu7_all.deb

rm tmp jockey-common_0.9.7-0ubuntu7_all.deb to leafpad or gedit and save it as whateveryouwant.sh and after that make it executable
3.in terminal type :

edit steam with your favorite text editor and search for
# Don’t allow running as root

if [ "$(id -u)" == "0" ]; then
show_message –error $”Cannot run as root user”
exit 1
fi
and replace the 0 with a 1 like this

# Don’t allow running as root
if [ "$(id -u)" == "1" ]; then
show_message –error $”Cannot run as root user”

5.Done :) now run steam from your Desktop and enjoy :)

At first, thanks for the great tutorial :D
I'm real sorry for the nooby question, but i got an 64bit version of kali, so do i have to write "sudo dpkg --add-architecture amd64" instead of i386 or is it because steam is "i386" i hope you understand me:confused:



3.in terminal type :
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
copy the download steam-debian_1.0.0.43-1_all.deb to desktop and run :
sudo dpkg -i steam-debian_1.0.0.43-1_all.deb

Well, you are not in exactly directory, first type ls to see the directory, but for is easy way put in desktop and type in terminal cd /Desktop and then do sudo dpkg -i steam-debian_1.0.0.43-1_all.deb , for more info about ls and cd check this here, http://www.linfo.org/command_line_lesson_1.html
