With Steam for Linux hitting open beta soon, make sure you’ve got your gaming box all set up- you could be one of the first of a new breed of “Console PC gamers”.
Thomaz de Oliveira dos Reis, a Linux developer, has arranged a script that will boot your machine straight into Steam’s “Big Picture” mode. It’s made for TVs and screens further away, so that makes it perfect for a console-like box under the living room telly.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install steam-login
You can download the Steam Big Picture Login Screen from Softpedia.
