    At first, thanks for the great tutorial
    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

    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
