check the Problem with installing Steam on Ubuntu 15.04 post. This problem don't seem to affect the closed source drivers, only the open ones.

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 ...

This command will remove Steam if it was installed with errors. Then type: sudo apt-get install steam And press ENTER. Wait for the process to end, and steam will ...

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

So after some research I have founded the solution. Open a terminal and run these commands: rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6 rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1

Do those commands: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 then: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ia32-libs sudo apt-get upgrade Then install libc sudo apt-get install libc-bin:i386

As muru says, you shouldn't have to back up steam.pipe. Steam should be able to re-create it if it is missing. However, when backing up your ~/.steam folder, you should check if you also have a ~/.local/share/Steam folder. If so, you'll probably want to back it up too. It usually contains most of the files associated with a Steam installation, including your ...

You shouldn't copy it. The steam.pid and steam.pipe files are created by Steam as required. These two files should be excluded from backups.

By default Steam stores games in your home directory (hence home partition) under ~/.local/share/Steam, not in the root partition - Steam I don't think is made to have games available system-wide. When you install a game it gives you a option to install it elsewhere: As you can see above, I have created a folder extra in the root partition under which I ...

U don't need to create /boot. If u want have 2 systems, u can install grub on /.(/ would have 10/20 GB) So 2 partition(/,/home) will be good and u can choose where install game on steam. If u have more than 4/8 GB don't create swap cause it ll be not used.

Use jstest-gtk to map the right analog stick to the correct axes. In the mapping window drag Axis 2: ABS_RX and Axis 3: ABS_RZ above Axis 4:ABS_Z (really left trigger). Your final configuration should look like this: Saving this profile would give you ~/.config/jstest-gtk/profile1.xml <?xml version="1.0"?> <joysticks> <joystick> ...

My final solution for this was to swap my Radeon graphics card for a nVidia one I had just bought for a machine in my shop. Fixed all my problems related to Steam. So, atleast to me, Radeon cards are not very Linux friendly.

Make a script nohudrun like the primusrun is done: #!/bin/sh old_key="$(LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib dconf read /org/compiz/integrated/show-hud)" LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib dconf write /org/compiz/integrated/show-hud "['']" "$@" LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib dconf write /org/compiz/integrated/show-hud "$old_key" And invoke it like that: nohudrun primusrun ...

In order to easily install all the libraries you can use the terminal command : sudo apt-get install ia32-libs Hope this helps.

Do this: sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 This will install packages to support 32-bit libraries on your machine.

Try running this in your terminal: sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dev.

The command apt-get update only refreshes your sources; it doesn't do anything else. What you need to do is run this: sudo apt-get install '^libc6.*' That will install the required package for you.

You probably have a different Steam package installed than the one provided in the Ubuntu 15.04 repositories. I suspect you installed Steam on your 15.04 system with the package in the upstream (Valve) repository, by downloading the .deb file from http://steampowered.com or by enabling the software source for it manually. Running apt list -a steam on my ...

I had this problem after an Ubuntu update this morning and, rather than re-installing Steam, I found out that I could instead "reset" it. This fixed my problem and was super simple. From Steam support https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=3134-TIAL-4638: Linux -Open Terminal -Type steam --reset -You will see ...

If you install a game on PlayOnLinux through their list which requires steam. Then it will run the script for installation of that game, install steam for you (windows version), and then the PlayOnLinux script will wait for you to install that game in steam. Afterwards, you will close steam and the script will continue installing the additional files that ...


1

You don't install the games with PlayOnLinux. You will have to install them from within Steam, as they are Steam games.

Did you install via -Wine or without -Wine? Anyhow I would just reinstall Steam via the terminal. sudo apt-get install steam -y A restart of your computer is needed. After restart do an update. sudo apt-get update As a side note I've experienced that if you are running AMD you should install steam and do updates before installing AMD drivers. Hope ...

Check your ~/.fonts folder. If this folder is empty, please download SteamFonts and extract the content of this archive to your ~/.fonts folder. After a steam restart the fonts should be back.

Steam for Windows under Wine works wonderfully. It lets me play Unturned and Terraria (the two main games I cannot play on linux) without issues (so far). Moreover, if the game you are looking at is a source engine game, such as Team Fortress 2 (which is, by the way, also available on Steam for Linux natively,) then you may run into some text rendering ...

Try to install lib32nss-mdns. So do sudo apt-get install lib32nss-mdns. If that won't work do sudo apt-get remove libnss-mdns

Thanks, I've figured it out now. For anyone else who wants to do this, you type ls ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/. I got a few files, 2 of which were .x86 and .x86_64 The latter one worked for me, but I think the other one would work for 32 bit applications.

Steam games are installed by default in directories under /home/<user>/.steam/steam/steamapps/common, where <user> is your username. For example, if you have Europa Universalis IV installed, you can start it from the terminal using /home/<user>/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Europa\ Universalis\ IV/eu4. The Steam binary is located by ...

In my personal 20 years experience setting up gaming computers for fun and sometimes profit, I've setup a few "gaming laptops", and recurrently learned the same lesson; Laptop/notbook PCs tend to have overheating problems when their graphics chipsets are pushed to their limits. One of the features of STEAM is the efforts the operators go to to help ...

I had exactly same issue on Linux Mint Debian Edition 2 64-bit. I resolved it by re-installing NVIDIA drivers with the 32-bit GL libraries (after installing those libraries steam requested). I just assume that installing those other 32-bit graphics libraries broke some linking, and reinstalling NVIDIA drivers with those real 32-bit libraries fixes the ...

Run this command: apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic It will install the x32 Utopic Mesa GLX binaries steam needs to run. Steam is a x32 architecture, and some x64 machines do not have this lib.

Assuming libc.so.6 is the only one you are missing, open a terminal and execute the following commands to install the missing library (be careful here and do not accept changes unless you are happy with the changes ie may uninstall stuff you want to keep!!): sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libc6-i386 Please post any errors.

Did you tried to disable the Steam Overlay? Many people have this issue where the first key pressed on the keyboard when the steam overlay is enabled makes the game crash
