Four of your packages have no upgrade path or are broken and hence you are getting the said error. You can verify which packages are broken from apt-get log file by running the command: gedit /var/log/apt/term.log You can remove them as follows: sudo apt-get remove [package_name] If that doesn't work you may opt for aptitude. Aptitude is used for ...

Try sudo apt-get install -f then just run Steam through the Terminal (at least the first time). That's always worked for me when I had issues with dependencies.

Yep, I've seen that today. Running ~/.steam/steam.sh yields a more verbose output: Running Steam on ubuntu 16.04 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically grep: symbol lookup error: grep: undefined symbol: pcre_jit_stack_alloc awk: /home/niklas/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtinfo.so.5: no version ...

If you're like me and you never reboot, you may want to start there(I know, I shouldn't be saying that when it comes to a linux machine). If you've had any kernel updates and not rebooted, there could be a conflict between the graphics driver kernel module and kernel version.

The script bellow relies on all native tools of Ubuntu, pactl and qdbus to determine active app, automatically mute and unmute as the app gains and focus from user. The app name is set in APP_ICON_NAME variable. You can use pactl list sink-inputs | grep icon_name to determine the value you need it to be set. In my case, i tested it with chromium-browser . ...

(Automatically) mute sound of a specific application if its window is not in front I tested the script below on Rhythmbox, doing the job without a single error. Running the script below in the background will pause the targeted process if its window is not in front (within one second), muting sound if it comes with the application. Whenever the window ...

If the game is using the normal sound system from ubuntu, a.k.a. pulse audio, then you go into: system settings -> sound -> applications You should see your song playing application there, you can change the volume and even mute it.

When I created this thread I saw similar questions but after spending the last four and half hours digging through the forums I found this Steam won't start on Ubuntu 16.04 and I was able to fix my issue by doing the following enter cd $HOME/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.bak cd $HOME/....

It actually depends how you Installed Steam. (at least on 16.04LTS) Via the steam.deb on steampowered.com the location ist ~/.local/share/Steam Via ubuntu's own multiverse repository the location is ~/.steam The second install method is the recommended one. http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/06/install-steam-on-ubuntu-16-04-lts

Go to the Steam homepage and click the big green install button. It will download the .deb file you need. Open your Downloads folder, right-click the steam_latest.deb, and select Gdebi Package Installer from the menu. Click Install Package on the next box that opens. Type in your password when it asks. You are done.

As you are trying to install Steam, here is a different approach: Install Steam directly from Ubuntu's multiverse repository sudo add-apt-repository multiverse sudo apt-get install steam Reference: https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-install-steam-on-ubuntu-16-04-xenial-xerus

You nearly had it correct, to install steam you need to add the -i flag to dpkg like this: sudo dpkg -i steam_latest.deb And if that still fails you can install python-apt this way, which you as well had almost right: sudo apt-get install python-apt

The problem seems to be with the libpcre libraries in the version from Valve website, i fixed the problem by removing those libraries from the steam directory forcing steam to use the one installed on the system. rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpcre.so.3 rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/...

In my case I had a different place. ./home/aby/.steam/steam ./home/aby/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam ./usr/share/lintian/overrides/steam ./usr/share/doc/steam ./usr/games/steam The best way to know (at least for me) is to go to the root and find for Steam or steam. cd / sudo find -name steam

The only inconveniente is that that you need more disk space to store the two copies of common libraries. There is no conflict betweent he software, since 32bits software will use 32bits libraries and 64bits software will use 64bits libraries.

The answer above was correct for me although the path to the files weren't quite the same when I was trying to get steam to run on 16.04 the path I needed was :~/.steam/bin/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu Also after updating the first time I had to do this again or it still wouldn't update.

This works for me: Start Steam with #!/bin/bash export LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6' #Export so all child processes are affected as well export DISPLAY=:0 #export LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose steam Source: Error in installing Steam on ubuntu 15.04
