  3. i come up with terminal that says this:

    Steam needs to install these additional packages:
    libgl1-mesa-dri:i386, libgl1-mesa-glx:i386, libc6:i386
    [sudo] password for censored:
    And i cant type the password.
    When i close the window this pops up:

    Error

    You are missig the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:
    libc.so.6

    Help please?
