Ubuntu: Can I install Steam without a credit card?



Question:

When I try to install Steam (on Ubuntu 13.04) from the Software Center, it asks for payment details even though it is free.

Can I install it without a credit card ?


Solution:1

Yes.. Don't know why it says "buy", its a free application..


Solution:2

Yes.

While the only option is to click "Buy", you only have to sign into Ubuntu One without paying anything. As you can see, Steam is flagged as a "Free" software.

Once you are logged in, the Software Center will tell you that it's "checking your payment information", but don't worry, it won't charge you for anything. Actually, I don't even have any payment information on my Ubuntu One account.

After that, you'll have to enter your admin password and you'll be good to go.


Solution:3

Go to steam, download installer and doubleclick. You can now get back to software center and install without logging into Ubuntu One.
