For what it's worth, I fought this issue for a while before I landed on this as a solution: sudo apt-get install steam -y This took care of all of the nasty package issues. Steam started right up.

Will changing to Ubuntu 15.04 affect steam big picture login? No. To be on the safe side: it should not affect it. In general you need to disable (or delete) every PPA before upgrading. And you can re-enable (or re-install) those after you are using 15.04 to be on the very safe side. You can always re-install steam big picture login using the 14.10 ...

You cannot just tell an application to use more memory; it will only request and use as much memory as it has been programmed to do so. If the application itself doesn't let you increase the memory in its own configuration then there is no way to force it to do so.

What I will suggest here is, try killing the other unnecessary processes when you run the game. Then there would be more memory available for all the remaining processes, and therefore the performance will increase. In fact it should increase then.

Someone else has the same problem too. :( But it appears to be resolvable. In your Steam Client, right-click Dota 2 and select Properties. Then select Local Files and then Verify Files. Let it finish the process. It should work after that. If you have any comments, concerns, or questions. please fill free to comment on this answer!. P.S. For more ...

For highest security, you would want to store the password in only one place, that is your mind. But this is not a option as you want to completely automate the process and this method will require you to enter the password everytime. You might have a look at hashing encrypting technology like gpg. But even here, you will need to remember and enter a ...

I think it because of new kernel is coming with updates and some nvidia kernel modules are missing. Try to reconfigure nvidia driver after update, for example sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-346 Where "nvidia-346" name of driver package. If it not help just try to reinstall your current driver via "sudo dpkg -i nvidia-346.deb" (from folder with driver ...

Also, if you experience more issues, let me know in the replies. I will be happy to help

You did not give many details, but you have to know that Windows programs that run under Wine (PlayOnLinux uses Wine) will not have the same performance like under Windows itself, and bugs occur mainly with games. If your entire system's sound is OK and only Skyrim has this bug, then probably it is a Wine performance bug.

This was fairly simple. First you'll need ffmpeg installed. Then there's this simple terminal command you can use to convert all the audio files to MP3: for f in *.flac , *.m4a , *.ogg ; do ffmpeg -i "$f" -ab 320k "${f%.m4a}.mp3"; done Breakdown: for f in *.flac , *.m4a , *.ogg ;: For every audio file of these types, do ffmpeg -i "$f" -ab 320k ...

I agree with the first answer - Steam does work great with Linux, but some fonts and other graphical issues may crop up occasionally. By that I mean that the fonts on the "Updating" window appear more blocky and without anti-aliasing than the counterpart on Windows. Some games may not work correctly due to unimplemented functions in Wine - if you have a ...

i found a very easy answer for this problem, just type this in the terminal udisks --mount /dev/sda2 --mount-options umask=022 (mounts with exec) steam will accept the windows partition and start downloading/installing your game.

There is a workaround. In windows create the Steam Library on the Windows drive In linux create a new Steam Library on you linux partition. Close Steam and remove the files inside the Steam Library folder. Link your newly created Steam Library on linux to your windows Steam Library with: ln -s /path/to/windows/Steam_Library /path/to/linux/Steam_Library

Here are suggestions from other answers. The steps described in other answers are: Follow this answer by @imolit: uninstall your Nvidia or AMD driver I.e. sudo apt-get purge fglrx* or sudo apt-get purge nvidia-* reboot start Steam and let it update, while using the open drivers reinstall your proprietary driver and finally reboot ...

This works fine for me under Ubuntu 15.04 64bits with proprietary driver NVIDIA version 346 and the latest steam client : LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib32/nvidia-346/:/usr/lib/nvidia-346/" steam

Fastfix (tested on Ubuntu 15.04) mv ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1{,.disable} mv ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6{,.disable}

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia Your solution is in the webpage above. Uninstall all current nvidia drivers you have and install those ones.

My best guess would be that Ubuntu thinks that you aren't using your computer and thus puts it to sleep. You can confirm/fix this by going into System Settings: then Brightness & Lock: then changing this drop-down: to Never: If the random black screen + locking stops, then you know that this is what's causing it!

Well, I used sudo apt-get install ia32-libs and it didn't seem to work, but when I ran steam, it started up. I have no idea how trying to install a package that it said didn't exist worked, but apparently it does.

I'm having a similar problem and I tried what was suggested but I still have the same problem. My right analog stick will not work for looking up/down, only left/right. I've tried countless suggestions and nothing's worked so far.

Figured it out on my own, guys. First, assuming your system can actually boot into Ubuntu you'll want to open up a terminal and install kernel version 4.0 as follows. Please note that if you're using a 64 bit version at the end of the wget command you'll want to change that to _amd64.deb $ wget ...

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 ...

Instead of downloading Steam, open a terminal window (Ctrl + Alt + T) and type: sudo apt-get remove --purge steam Press ENTER. Your password will be requested, type it and press ENTER again. 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 found 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.
