TF2 on Ubuntu and non-beta users fix

Successfully installed Steam on Ubuntu 12.04 and now downloading Team Fortress 2.



Amusing testing INCOMING!

I will probably experience a known problem with accounts not authorized for beta testing, but hopefully I already have a solution!

Here it is for you:
1. Open a Steam file with gedit and superuser permissions with this command:

sudo gedit /usr/bin/steam

2. Edit the file putting this dispenser code right after #! /bin/bash:


export LANG=C
export LC_NUMERIC=POSIX



Now you should be good to go, have fun!
