Accepting SteamCMD license afterwards

November 4th, 2023

This one was tricky. I mistakenly declined the SteamCMD license when installing it using apt, and then it decided that I’m a hostile person who doesn’t ever want to install it. The debconf key in question is steam/question and its value should be “I ACCEPT” instead of “I DECLINE”. Directly modifying /var/cache/debconf/config.dat seemed promising, but the wrong value reappered when trying to install again. Finally a script did the trick (run as root at your own risk):

set -e

. /usr/share/debconf/confmodule

db_set steam/question "I AGREE"
