I've got exactly the same problem (sometimes it crashed in a library, sometimes after hitting 'play') but this helped: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update after that, I can just run Steam by primusrun steam and everything works fine without errors.

When a user logs in, Steam should not automatically open. It's likely that Steam is still set to open in their Startup Applications. Disabling it there should prevent it from starting when a user logs in.

Manually installing those drivers from package is considered a very bad thing by communities of any repository. And for good reason. Never do it without a good reason. If I remember right, you could run this driver installer with --uninstall key to remove the driver (mostly). Then, see if it created a file /etc/X11/xorg/conf and remove it, then in ...

Seems wrong way to me. You install steam from the steam website here. No playonlinux required. And you install steam games from the steam software regardless of the platform. I would advice to install a virtualBox with Windows and Steam if you want to play windows games if that is possible for you. It will prove to be a better gaming experience. In images: ...

During an upgrade, Ubuntu disables any third-party software repositories. After the upgrade, did you re-enable them? In the Systems Settings application, under "Software and Updates", click on the "Other Software" tab, look to see if there is a check next to the Canonical Partner's repositories, as well as any other repositories you may have added. If not, ...

If you don't want to pollute your $HOME, you can create a folder somewhere on a partition, give it your own user accounts's ownership and access rights and create some symlinks. I personally did before launching the Steam Client second time: sudo mkdir ...
