Thanks in advance for your help. I am trying to get steam PoL to work with an Ubuntu 13.10 64bit installation running unity. I suspect the issue is with my video drivers not being 32 bit but I also might be having multiple issues.

Firstly the 32 bit Video drivers. I am running a Nvidia 660ti and when I launch PlayOnLinux is tells me I need 32 OpenGL Libraries. I have tried running

sudo apt-get install nvidia-current:i386

from my command line and ubuntu told me I need nvidia-304:i386. I say 'Okay' and try to install that and then it tells me I have all sorts of unmet dependencies which have no installable candidate. Anyone know how to get 32bit drivers installed on Ubuntu 13.10 64bit?

Next I try to install steam through PlayOnLinux despite my driver issue and steam installs fine and launches to the login screen before crashing with this error log...

Since the first line says something about 32-bit code I suspect it comes back to the drivers but I am not entirely sure.

Here is the PoL log if it helps...

I have wine 1.5.25 installed through PlayOnLinux
