Thank you for the icon! With the current steam version, I recommend renaming the files to steam.svg and then placing them in the elementary icons theme. You won't need to change the .dektop file if you rename the files, since steam now uses the steam icons by default.
As indicator icon I currently use a Ubuntu icon, which has the wrong color shade. I guess I could correct that on my own.

It didn't work for me.
So, what I've done, was changing "Icon=steam" to "Icon=/usr/share/icons/elementary/apps/48/steam_eos.svg

Besides that :

Nice Icon :D

The icon should be named “steam”, not “steam_eos”. That way somebody can create a Steam icon for another theme and use it without further changes.

For some strange reasons an icon named "steam" in /usr/share/icons is not able to override the default icon, that's why I changed it :)

In my system the only “steam” icon comes from Faenza and it refers to the same platform. If it actually collides with another icon, it could be named “valve-steam” or something like that, specifying the application but not the operating system.

Nice. Quick, easy and didn't even require a log out. I have the steam linux beta and just had to modify the .desktop file to point to the full path of the icon.

We don't include third party icons of apps that we don't have installed by default.
