Another solution, that helped me to launch Steam client was found here - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Steam/Troubleshooting I ran this command - find ~/.steam/root/ \( -name "libgcc_s.so*" -o -name "libstdc++.so*" -o -name "libxcb.so*" -o -name "libgpg-error.so*" \) -print -delete and now Steam launch without any additional pre-loads.
