    After a long struggle, I got steam running on my debian 64-bit machine. However, whenever I try to run a game (TF2 to be exact) nothing happens. It just doesn't do anything..... Any ideas?

    Update: I actually got Team Fortress 2 to run, however, the screen goes crazy and it is basically impossible to play. I had the same problem when trying to run Dota 2. Is this a graphics card problem or is it missing something that I'm unaware of? Any ideas?

    Yes my system is up to date. I tried that on the wiki and the last step failed so I tried a different way that I found on the steam forums.
    aptitude install libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386


    That command failed and said that apt couldn't find it. I have the sid repositories in the sources file as well.

    What version of the driver are you using?

    Can you post the output from running Steam in a terminal?
    Code:
    steam --verbose
    Try to open the game when looking at the output in the terminal.

    That is what happens when I execute that command and start up the game. It definitely has to do with openGL.

    Alright that worked actually! Now the only problem is that the game is very dark, I haven't tried adjusting the shading or light settings yet, but other than that the game works. Thanks for your help!
