Steam and multiarch

After enabling multiarch to install Steam does it only install steam and its dependencies or am I also installing other 32bit packages I don't need or use?
(also when someone replies to a thread viewed in firefox does it auto update or do I have to keep hitting refresh?)

Re: Steam and multiarch

I installed steam on my system one week ago (I am not a gamer, but I wanted to test all the new stem/Proton stuff). Here is what I did for  an nvidia gtx760 card:

  • Using only Nouveau drivers for my Nvidia card, I switched to proprietary drivers

# dpkg --add-architecture i386
# apt update
# apt install -t ascii-backports --install-recommends wine
# apt install -t ascii-backports --install-recommends wine32
# apt install -t ascii-backports --install-recommends nvidia-driver 
# apt install -t ascii-backports nvidia-detect
# apt install -t ascii-backports mesa-vulkan-drivers
# apt install -t ascii-backports vulkan-utils
# apt install --install-recommends steam

Check you have python package (for python 2.7) and python3 installed.

And I added nothing more. I didn't even installed the 32-bit OpenGL libraries as stated in Debian wiki, for the moment all is working fine.
