So my steam has been crashing every time i go to browse the store for games. It only seems to be crashing with games that have video previews. So this to me sounds like a flash player problem. Since im running Linux mint 15 64bit, i needed to put in “libflashplayer.so (32bit)” in my “~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/plugins” folder. Since inside “/ubuntu12_32” doesn’t have a folder called “/plugins“, i just had to make one with “mkdir plugins“. Then i grabbed the latest copy of the 32bit flash player from “http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/“, by selecting “linux(32bit)” as my operating system, and grabbing the “.tar.gz” file. Then extracted the “libflashplayer.so” file in the new “/plugins” folder inside of my “/ubuntu12_32” directory.
This problem most likely has been posted everywhere, and people have figured this solution out before, but oddly in my 64bit..i had never had to do this until just a few days ago. It had always just worked without doing so. Anyway..for those who do need this solution, i am posting it.
My steam is working well now. Good luck!
