@raider707 I'm not sure if thats possible, I'm having mixed results using the the info from logcat when opening the store... using the command "am start -n com.valvesoftware.android.steam.community/.activity.SteamMobileUriActivity" when the steam app isnt running will start it then minimise it, running the command when the steam app is open gives mixed results - sometimes it goes to the store, sometimes it does nothing. If you, or anyone else, can get the correct command it should be possible.

@crunhymetal I'm not sure what change fixed it - the only windows change was removing the vb script and we tried running the commands without it. Anyways, glad its working. In time for borderlands - the pre sequel Smile

My Add-ons, only available for XBMC:
Steam Launcher|Music Party Mode|Reboot2oOS|Triple J Radio

But I also had to copy XMBC.desktop over gnome.desktop

Now SteamOS boots into XMBC by default and switching to Steam and back to XBMC works as expected.

Out of curiousity: What hardware are you doing this on?

Using XBMCbuntu on Intel NUC DN2820FYKH
