Connecting to Steam account forever

Hello.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this problem but I really need some help. :D

I'm trying to install Steam on Fedora 17 (64-bit; GNOME).

I first installed WINE and then installed Steam. I inserted my log-in info and then it starts connecting to Steam Account [User-name]. Forever. Perpetually. OR it just disappears. Forever. Perpetually.

I've tried to fix this, really: :(

- Used Winetricks (did everything that's in this page_forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=169544);

- Used Play on Linux (which installed some fonts and deleted some dll files that (supposedly) could compromise Steam);

- Installed Tahoma font and TransGaming ActiveX Control (did everything that's in this page_fedorasolved.org/gaming-solutions/installing-steam-using-wine/);

- Did everything that's in this page (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...on&iId=19444);

- Disabled SElinux;

- Renamed ClientRegistry.blob to ClientRegistryOld.blob;

- Deleted ClientRegistry.blob

- Made sure I hadn't any of the programs that could interfere with steam (https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...28-SFLZ-9289);

- Renamed another file (I'm sorry, I can't remember what file, but someone recommended that one of the forums);

- Deleted that file;

- Re-installed Fedora ("clean" install) various times trying to combine those steps in different ways;

- Reconfigured my router;

- Restarted the computer various times;

- Logged off, restarted, powered off the computer (in this order, without interruptions); :dis:



I can open Steam on Windows (this computer) and on OS X (computer of a friend).

My computer's info:

● 3 GB of memory;

● Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T5870 @ 2.00GHz × 2;

● Graphics: Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset;

● HD: 314,4 GB.



I just want to play Portal 2! :) (and uninstall Windows.) :D

Thank you.
