I have a living room computer running XBMCbuntu, which is essentially a streamlined version of Ubuntu geared towards running XBMC (and so it boots directly into XBMC).
The machine it's installed on is pretty weak from a gaming standpoint, but I have a few indie titles that it should be able to run and I am very curious to see if it would be able to handle in-home streaming of games.
Since, to my best understanding, XBMCbuntu has some Ubuntu bits missing to keep it lightweight, I was wondering if it is at all possible to install the Steam client on it. A simple Google search did not yield anything reliable/conclusive, and so I turn to the expertise of you fine gentle-persons.
Have any of you had any experience with installing Steam on a plain XBMCbuntu machine? If so I would love to know how to get started. To be clear, the machine is more or less at the state one would get to by following the installation instructions on fresh machine.
