    Kali Linux 2.0 Installing Steam [TUTORIAL]

    I saw a tutorial on this forum that wasn't very helpful as it was outdated and people still needed help. This is how you install Steam while running Kali 64-bit.

    First thing you'll need to do is go grab the latest Steam.

    You can find Steam on valve's official website:
    http://store.steampowered.com/about/

    Installation Instructions

    You'll download a steam .deb file. Replace "replace.deb" with your steam .deb filename.

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i replace.deb
    sudo apt install -f
    Now that steam is installed, if you want to run Steam as the root user you'll need to locate /usr/bin/ and find a file called "steam".

    Open this, and replace the following lines of code:

    Code:
    # Don’t allow running as root
    
    if [ "$(id -u)" == "0" ]; then
    show_message –error $”Cannot run as root user”
    exit 1
    fi
    With:

    Code:
    # Don’t allow running as root
    if [ "$(id -u)" == "1" ]; then
    show_message –error $”Cannot run as root user”
    exit 1
    fi
    Essentially replaced 0 with 1 in this file. This will disable that annoying root message.
    If you're running a 64bit version of Kali and you're receiving a libGL.so error upon Steam's startup the following will fix that.

    Code:
    dpkg --add-architecture i386
    
    sudo apt update
    
    sudo apt install libc6:i386 libqt4-dbus:i386 libqt4-network:i386 libqt4-xml:i386 libqtcore4:i386 libqtgui4:i386 libqtwebkit4:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxss1:i386 libxv1:i386 libssl1.0.0:i386 libpulse0:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386
    Now, reboot your system and run steam from the new desktop icon. Done!

    "You are missing the following 32-bit libraries and Steam may not work:
    libc.so.6 "I'm getting this error and I can not find these codes
    "dpkg --add-architecture i386

    sudo apt update

    sudo apt install libc6: i386 libqt4-network: i386 libqt4-xml: i386 libqtcore4: i386 libqtwebkit4: i386 libqtwebkit4: i386 libstdc ++ 6: i386 libx11-6: i386 libxss6: i386 libssl1.0.0: i386 libpulse0: i386 libasound2-plugins: i386 "
