Revision as of 00:14, 26 April 2013

i didn't find any font named marlett.ttf in my vista installation... but i copied all fonts from vista (that are under 1mb) to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts/ and the console (and buddy notifications) now look good. so i dont know what the right font is. but definetly not marlett.ttf.

samba

 m   	13:21 (cur | prev) . . (+153) . . Dinosaw (Talk | contribs) (Added samba to the list of preperations to prevent ntlm_auth out of date/absent errors)

I undid this change, because I have multiple arch installs (none with samba installed), and steam works fine on them. winehq doesn't have anything about this either Thestinger 13:59, 20 August 2010 (EDT)


When installing steam it couldn't connect with the steam server and when run from the terminal it would mention something to do with ntlm_auth being absent or out of date. http://wiki.winehq.org/NtlmAuthSetupGuide this said samba contained the required file.

To test I removed samba though pacman and once again steam would not connect to the server and crashed, the terminal gave this output:

err:ntlm:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated. Make sure that ntlm_auth >= 3.0.25 is in your path.
err:ntlm:SECUR32_initNTLMSP Usually, you can find it in the winbind package of your distribution.

That you can run steam fine without samba suggests that there is another source for this file? Dinosaw 11:21, 24 August 2010 (BST)

Out of date

This is now out of date. It has been removed and added to AUR

"DRM-free" games

Should we list games which are "DRM-free" (as in you can run them without opening Steam, like Eversion)?


Split page?

I think this page should just be reserved for using Steam itself, and using it with Wine, too. We can then move all the games and their fixes/dependencies to a "Steam Games" page, maybe?

Steam ships the games with the libraries that they depend on, so the fixes in the article are really just bugs that should be reported to Valve. For example Sword and Sworcery comes with a 32-bit curl library, among several others. thestinger (talk) 22:24, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

cursors “fixed”

hi, please leave the cursor section intact until steam-for-linux bug #600 is fixed, thanks – flying sheep 17:45, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

If I read http://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/0/846941710613226437/, correctly, this is already fixed.

Unity of Command font problems

Correction for "Native Steam on Linux" section

The link at the end of the blurb about pure 64 bit installs doesn't lead anywhere. It should probably be removed or updated (with the section created perhaps?).

Move section

I suggest move "Game-specific depencencies and troubleshooting" to separate subpage.
