This is a problem with steam and ubuntu 15.04. Steam bundles old libs and are colliding with mesa drivers, that is also why closed drivers aren't seeing this problem. There is a open bug in steam github the workaround for now is to remove the old lib version, at least until valve fix the issue in their startup script or similar. So enter this folders and ...

Well, I used sudo apt-get install ia32-libs and it didn't seem to work, but when I ran steam, it started up. I have no idea how trying to install a package that it said didn't exist worked, but apparently it does.

Will changing to Ubuntu 15.04 affect steam big picture login? No. To be on the safe side: it should not affect it. In general you need to disable (or delete) every PPA before upgrading. And you can re-enable (or re-install) those after you are using 15.04 to be on the very safe side. You can always re-install steam big picture login using the 14.10 ...

For what it's worth, I fought this issue for a while before I landed on this as a solution: sudo apt-get install steam -y This took care of all of the nasty package issues. Steam started right up.

i found a very easy answer for this problem, just type this in the terminal udisks --mount /dev/sda2 --mount-options umask=022 (mounts with exec) steam will accept the windows partition and start downloading/installing your game.

Fastfix (tested on Ubuntu 15.04) mv ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1{,.disable} mv ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6{,.disable}

For highest security, you would want to store the password in only one place, that is your mind. But this is not a option as you want to completely automate the process and this method will require you to enter the password everytime. You might have a look at hashing encrypting technology like gpg. But even here, you will need to remember and enter a ...

I had the same issue, every time I tried to run steam it would tell me the libgl.so.1 error. All I did was type this into terminal and open steam back up and it worked. sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic:i386 If this works for you, please upvote. Also, if you experience more issues, let me know in the replies. I will be happy to help

I'm having a similar problem and I tried what was suggested but I still have the same problem. My right analog stick will not work for looking up/down, only left/right. I've tried countless suggestions and nothing's worked so far.

After reinstalling Steam and then switching to proprietary drivers for my AMD graphic card it's finally working for me.
