I'm running the Linux client for Steam on 13.04. Initially things seemed to work fine, but then Steam froze, and I had to force it to quit. I started it up again, but then it prompted me to update various 32-bit libraries. After doing this games now hang with a blank grey screen. I then re-installed my drivers after reading threads for similar issues, no luck though. Then I added
That "fix" however created a new issue, "OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering, which may cause performance problems.", a known and common issue for 64-bit OS's. So I then ran
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
in terminal. Still no change. I removed the lines I added to
steam.conf, but no change. After reading several boards, I'm kinda at my wits end with this one.
