Linux Mint 64-bit and Steam

I had the following error message on Linux Mint when trying to play a new game:

This application requires either the GL_EXT_texture_compression_s3tc, or the GL_EXT_texture_compression_dxt1 + GL_ANGLE_texture_compression_dxt3 + GL_ANGLE_texture_compression_dxt5 OpenGL extensions. Please install S3TC texture support.

Solved by installing the 32-bit libtxc as follows:

sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386
