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.

install a proprietary driver Since you are gaming this is the first thing you should do. You need to enable non-free sources so: Open Ubuntu Software Center go to Edit -> Software Sources Enable the "Proprietary drivers for devices (restricted)" option. Close the Software center run sudo apt-get update to make sure things are up to date go to your systems ...

I know it's been a while and you've probably solved the problem already, but here is a fix that also works. This error can result if you HAD Steam installed, then did a "nuke and pave" to re-install your system but had /home on a different partition. When you reinstall Linux, your home directory is intact, including your Steam settings, which are in the ...

While this is still an issue for me, I've found a workaround. By adding primusrun to the shortcut, it reliably launches in fully functional form the first time after rebooting my machine. Any subsequent launches are likely to blackscreen, but the first one almost always works. Another workaround is to install SKSE (Skyrim Script Extender), create a ...

Instead of adding the primusrun command in Launch Options (primusrun %command%) you can add primusrun in a shell script in the game directory in the .steam-directory. Each game seems to have its own shell script. CS:GO for instance has: ".steam/steam/SteamApps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/csgo.sh" Find the script for dota2 and change the line: ...

I am encountering this unresolved problem. I have followed the instructions that David gave to Jordan. Is anyone able to assist?

It looks like I dealt with that problem. If anyone experiences this stutters, here is what I did: 1. Turn off steam overlay and steam notifications in game. 2. Go to NVIDIA X Server Settings -> PowerMizer -> Set Preffered Mode to "Prefer Maximum Performance". After setting that I played 2 whole competitive games with no stutters.

I fixed it. Simply go to ->steam ->games ->view game library ->right click cities:skylines ->properties ->general tab ->set launch options -> copy&paste '-screen-height 1050 -screen-width 1400' without quotes That's it. ;)

What you're trying to do is non-standard. There exists a Filesystem Hierarchy Standard that describes where every and all software must reside. That being said, this is your Personal Computer, so you can do whatever you want. ;-) I would install according to the standard and then copy the application/data to it's own home directory. sudo cp --preserve ...

Judging by this GitHub bug report it looks like Garry's Mod has been broken on Linux for more than a week now. There doesn't seem to be any proper workaround available. You will probably have to wait for a patch to address this issue.

Go to Ubuntu's website and go to alternative downloads Find a download of the point release of 14.04.1 Reinstall ubuntu Install steam, hey presto problem gone. I'm no expert but it looks like they upgraded some packages for the 14.04.2 release that means steam can't find the dependencies to install correctly. If you need any expansion on these points let ...

Even though your http_proxy variable is set, if you launch it via GUI it will not work. But if, from the same terminal where echo $http_proxy outputs http://username:password@server:port you launch the command steam, everything works fine - at least it does for me.

It may not be a problem of CPU, but video card or available RAM size. Actually some games are poorly optimized and even setting the lowest quality may still require a lot of resources. Also, if you have multicore CPU, it might be that game can't utilize more than one (or two) cores - it's a known issue that can't be helped.

Try this, just a simulation, nothing will actually happen - sudo apt-get -s install libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic:i386 If it looks ok then re-run the command but remove the -s to actually install If it is questionable or fails then post the terminal output, either here in your question or in a pastebin like - http://paste.ubuntu.com/ or http://pastebin.com/ ...

Got this error after installing version 346.47 of the nvidia Geforce drivers on Ubuntu 14.04.2. During installation of the drivers, I got a message saying that the 32 bit compatibility libraries could not be installed, but I stupidly ignored it. Running back through the installer for the video drivers, and making sure to install those 32bit libraries fixed ...

Try PlayOnLinux, it will automatically install DirectX and all the libraries and settings you need to (hopefully) play the game: Run the following commands (source): IMPORTANT: Replace trusty in http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_trusty.list (below) with the first name of your Ubuntu version (e.g. precise for 12.04 or utopic for 14.10). wget -q ...

I know this is an old thread but removing / deleting this symlink is not a great answer at all. Many other applications depend on this file, although steam requires current drivers. Please read my solution to this issue: Ubuntu 14.04 “could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glGetError'!"

I posted an answer/fix in this thread Ubuntu 14.04 “could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glGetError'!" that relates to steam games and the openGL entry point issue. note to you: use the "/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa" instead of the "/usr/lib32/fglrx/" Also make sure you have the latest mesa drivers installed.
