@Berly85 You're doing great. The terminal output is what Jerry needed. The only adjustment would be to post it using the Code format. It's one of the formatting tools/buttons in the full message edit screen.

Looking at your system specs, you're not going to get great performance with Steam on your computer.
You could try installing the legacy binary drivers first, reboot, then try Steam again. Menu, System, Install Drivers.

@whateverthing,thanks im trying my best to get in to this ;D
@Jerry
sir i follow your instructions,MENU,SYSTEM,INSTALL DRIVERS...after the searh is done it says [no additional drivers found] because when i install linux lite i updated it.When im surfing on askubuntu site while waiting replies in this forum i found a similar problem in mine and follow their instructions as what they taught on the other guy and i run these commands:
Code: [Select]
rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6
rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

I think what happened (this might be of use to other ppl later) is that the first time I launched steam I canceled it downloading (the 299mb download) and started it again the next day. For some reason it must have been unable to recover from this cancel and even though it appeared to download the next day it never worked until I cleared it via those code lines in the above post and reinstalled it (from mint software manager) and let it download again from scratch.
