Steam & Source Games Mint 13 (tutorial)

Until Valve releases their beta version of Steam for Linux we still have an option for playing our Steam games.

Steam & Source Games in Mint 13

I'll walk you through all the steps of preparing PlayOnLinux for your Steam games.
Of course there is no guarantee that they will all work, but I've had a lot of success.
Here are the games I have working so far:
  • Black Mesa
  • Borderlands
  • Half-Life 2
  • Torchlight
  • The Ship
  • Alien Swarm
... and the list is growing FAST!

An excellent guide. However there's an easier way to get Steam in POL. You can download it from POL in Games.

Small matter. You'll help a lot of people getting started with this guide.":O}

Thanks!
I saw that in PlayOnLinux... if you search Steam PlayOnLinux will find it.
Most of the steps still apply, just don't do the download and install SteamInstall.msi
For some reason I like downloading it directly from Steam.
Its hard to tell if the PlayOnLinux is downloading it from Steampowered.com or from their own repository.
