If you still don't want to use my wrapper, that's OK, but I just wanted to make sure you knew that it does have a GUI. I forgot to mention that outside the instructions inside it.
vidsgame: Since I prefer GUI and have already messed things up greatly using the terminal in Mint already, I think I'll just stick to Interfaces rather than dwelling anymore into command lines. I'm already registered here, so I thought I might as well ask here. I have searched other places before asking here and have just registered this question in the Steam forums as well.
(Basically, you install zenity via your package manager, download and unpack steamcmd and my wrapper into the same folder, maybe edit the one line which says where to put the downloaded games, mark the wrapper executable, and double-click it. It'll pop up a dialog where you can paste or type game IDs from SteamDB.)
