It can be malware.
That message "Unable to write to the current Steam application folder." seems to come from steam.exe sometimes.Code:
Unable to get home directory
Unable to write to the current Steam application folder.
Please move Steam to a folder where you have write privileges.

No known virus though. https://www.virustotal.com/file/afbb...bc80/analysis/
Maybe an unknown one.
Unless it's a Linux steam server for a particular game? But it does say 'beta client'.
This is the Steam client from 2003. 9 years old. It was used for distribution of the dedicated servers and was never really stable. Ignore this old crap.
The Steam beta should begin any day now.
Remember, Steam on Linux is not GPL Freedom Steam for RMS-Approved Pure GNU/Linux. It's still a proprietary DRM'd distribution channel for proprietary DRM'd games. The DRM isn't even opt-out for developers; there are games that sell both on Steam and elsewhere and the non-Steam versions are DRM-free while the Steam versions are not, because that's how Steam rolls (... sorry).
Valve doesn't want you poking around inside of Steam of L4D2 to help fix it. They really, really don't.
wut I thawt Linux was imunez 2 viruzez n olny wind0z3 lusers had 2 wurry bout dat crapz!!?!??/``1!`//`~?~!!`11?Quote:
You really should not download and execute random stuff from random untrusted third-party websites you find on the murky web.
If Linux is ever successful on the desktop, the day will come: "Download this .sh and follow the screenshots' instructions to get past some bogus no-execute security anti-measures in your OS, and then you can use our Daily Rotating Celebrity Bouncing Boobies Screensaver! Today's Celebrity is Scarlet Johansson! Tomorrow's Celebrity is Arnold Swarzenegger! Download your copy of Bouncing Boobies now!"
I remember the days when I got called all sorts of name for believing steam was coming to Linux. I feel vindicated. Thank you Mr. Newell & Co.
Edit: at least I thought I did. This is a new laptop and I've only got a couple newer games on it. Was pretty sure a few games I've played before didn't though; hard to verify without redownloading them. I may be totally wrong on this one, but I'm still ~67.12% sure all Steam games have DRM.
