[SOLVED] I managed to fix the issue by uninstalling the proprietary AMD drivers, rebooting, starting Steam letting it update, reinstalling AMD drivers, reboot. It seems to be working and I can now play all my Steam linux games.
I just installed Ubuntu 13.10 64bit on my main PC. I also installed Steam (.deb from Steampowered.com). The install went without errors.
On running Steam, nothing happens. I run Steam from the terminal and receive two segmentation faults, always occurring on different lines of Steam.sh when I run Steam:
/home/samathy/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 755: 11111 Segmentation fault /home/samathy/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 755: 11239 Segmentation fault
The rest of the output on the terminal is just dump-saving text. I can't see anything about GLX issues, or locale issues (they seem to be popular issues with steam)
I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 64bit with Xubuntu (installed after the Ubuntu install.) My specs are as follows:
AMD FX 6350. AMD HD7870 (With AMD proprietary beta drivers) 12GB DDR3 Samsung 840 EVO 120GB.
This problem is a little weird to me because Steam runs fine on my Ubuntu 13.10 + Xubuntu-desktop, Intel Atom N270 netbook without any fiddling, I can even run games.
I've googled a lot and only really found solutions to other steam issues, not my own.
If anyone could help, that'd be wonderful. Thanks!
edit: I should mention that I've tried doing
It does not produce errors its self, but also doesnt solve the problem either. I have also tried installing Steam from Ubuntu package manage, but that results in the same errors.
