    I downloaded steam via the app center but everytime I try to open it, the icon appears on the dock then just disappears.

    Okay so I ran steam using terminal and got this
    Code (Text):
    tar: This does not look like a tar archive
    xz: (stdin): File format not recognized
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    find: ‘/home/jacob/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime’: No such file or directory
    so I fixed it with
    Code (Text):
    mkdir /home/$USER/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime
    It's working now lol but I'm keeping this up for other users to see
