After installing Steam on my linux machine in wine I noticed a really annoy bug, the windows of steam are tiled across my screen as shown in the screenshot below.
I managed to fix this by opening up the ‘Configure Wine’ program that comes with wine and under the Applications tab switching from Windows XP mode to Windows 7, this fixed this bug and I now also have system borders on the steam windows.
If you’re interested in getting steam installed I used this guide – https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuMagazine/HowTo/InstallingSteam – It’s pretty simple and only takes a few minutes to do. Below is a quick, simple breakdown of what that guide says to do.
sudo apt-get install wine
Download the steam installer from here:
Copy over the tahoma.ttf font from a Windows install (or Download it here – http://source.winehq.org/source/fonts/tahoma.ttf ). Do this command from the folder you downloaded the font to.
cp tahoma.ttf ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts/
(If it doesn’t work and says the folder is missing or somthing like that do the following and then re-do the cp)
Finally install Steam (Do this command in the directory you downloaded the Steam installer to):
msiexec /i SteamInstall.msi
