seem that your real concern is having two terminals on the menu.
It is _one_ of my concerns. The other one being apt not resolving these
dependencies the way I expected it to. Unlike you, Sven understood the
question immediately and unlike you, he gave an appropriate answer. I
filed a bug report against mate-terminal. Problem solved.

However, did you actually test that it would happen? Would installing
the multiarch version give you two xterms or would the last one
installed overwrite the first?

Could you simply remove the second menu item if one did in fact show up?

Did you try removing the mate version of xterm before installing the one
steam prefers?
What does it have to do with my initial question about dependencies
resolving ? Stop trying to justify yourself and just admit you were
gratuitously rude to someone you mistook for a newbie.

There is an old saying that it is better to light one candle than to
curse the darkness. If you want to report a bug, report it. If you want
a solution to a problem, ask for help.

I'd like to find out what happens if you try the solutions that I have
suggested. I've got multiple terminals on my setup and it's never
bothered me. I use the one I like most. That's a nice thing about Linux.
But you apparently feel differently. That's also your choice. Has your
bug report been addressed yet?

I thought that was a feature, where you can just download all the things for free. You all made me look. I have installed:
Gnome Term	1155k
XFCE Term	1559k
Xterm		1750k

For what I pay the packagers, I can live with it. I think the points Dale raised were not disrespectful in any way. Maybe multiarch pulled in a 32bit xterm? That is quite possible. You would need one ya know, running 32bit apps one of them, like steam, would probably demand it. Just checked, steam does. But you already knew that. :) Ric

Linux _is_ user-friendly. It is not ignorant-friendly or idiot-friendly.
