If you intend to play somewhat modern games on this computer, you need to do at least two things: Download and install a recent 64-bit version of Lubuntu. Currently, this is 16.04 LTS. Anything less than this, and you're asking for trouble. 12.04 was released in April of 2012. Download and install the latest 64-bit version of Steam, either from the ...

Okay so I may have fixed the issue. It wouldn't previously work by running it direct from the file browser (.steam/steam/steamapps/common/RimWorld/RimworldVersionYaddaYadda.x86_64), I haven't yet checked if this now means I can launch from the Steam client but it does now mean that I can download mods through the workshop even though the overlay doesn't work....

I had the same problem. In my case, I renamed the library libstdc ++ .so. 6 for libstdc++.so.6.old in those folders: ./ubuntu12_32/steam steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ ./ubuntu12_32/steam steam-runtime/amd64/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ I hope I helped.

I have the same problem on Arch Linux but not on Ubuntu. On Arch I solved it by using this script to launch Steam. LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/$LIB/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/$LIB/libxcb.so.1 /usr/$LIB/libgpg-error.so' steam You can adapt and integrate that into /usr/share/applications/steam.desktop or make a new launch script, like /usr/bin/steam-...

The workaround I use is to install the Linux version of Steam. The store works there, you can buy the Windows games, then start the Wine-Steam and play them.

Have you tried CrossOver? It doesn't have IE 11 support though, but IE8 have 3 star which stated that this version have run with limited functionality.

As far as I know, Internet Explorer 11 does not work well under WINE, and you would be extremely lucky to get it working well. The only available entry for IE 11's WINE compatibility currently rates it as "Garbage": https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=33811 And as you can see on the Wine website, no version of Internet ...

Ok so I don't like the way this turned out (I don't understand how to replicate the results). However here is in general what I've done, I tried re-installing NVIDIA drivers (while running X) obviously that failed, at this point I already has 32 bit libraries installed. On next restart I got blank screen (no way to boot). I unplugged Video card and ...

If you run the windows version of steam on wine, you also need to make sure all dependencies are available. For example: steam for windows uses a browser as backend for its store and community. Not sure if it is Internet Explorer, but give it a try please. And if that does not work, install firefox and/or google chrome for windows under the wine, as well. ...

First you're going to want to completely remove any leftover steam-related files using these command lines: http://askubuntu.com/a/217875/569100 Then re-install steam using this: http://askubuntu.com/a/556039/569100 If steam still doesn't work after all that, use this code in the terminal: LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6' steam

I too had the same problem. I fixed my issue by reinstalling Steam by downloading the official Steam .deb pkg & using sudo dpkg -i steam_latest.deb Then I switched to the latest video driver (nvidia~>361.42) under System Settings>Software & Updates>Additional Drivers Lastly, I rebooted & that seemed to fix Steam! Not sure if this ...

steam doesn't start after upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 This sorta fixed it.. I have to input LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6' steam whenever I want to run Linux Steam and wait for it to update (along with keycode verification) each time which is quite annoying.. Will post another question about this. More on that here: (steamwebhelper.exe error) ...

I'm not sure if this would help since this is a solution for those running ArchLinux, but if you've got nothing else to lose: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=193802 removing some files got it working for these users.

steam is a 32bit application, you need the :i386 versions for each package name if you aren't running a 32bit system. sudo apt update && sudo apt install libxtst6:i386 libxrandr2:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libpulse0:i386 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0:i386 -y

Same problem here :( Running Steam on ubuntu 16.04 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically /bin/bash: /home/hannapetra/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtinfo.so.5: no version information available (required by /bin/bash) grep: symbol lookup error: grep: undefined symbol: pcre_jit_stack_alloc grep: symbol ...

Well I finally solved the problem. It turns out that it doesn't work properly if you install it through playonlinux. To solve this issue, it requires you to install Steam and Sonic Adventure 2 manually with WINE. !!!WARNING: This tutorial will only work with a WINE version 7.46 or greater!!! Firstly, open a terminal with Ctrl + Alt + T create the ...

My solution: sudo mkdir -p /opt/steam sudo setfacl -m default:other:rwX -R /opt/steam sudo setfacl -m other:rwX -R /opt/steam If you move any games from another library, you'll need to repeat those commands.

Based on your output can you try this command. You seem to be missing some required library. Try this command to install those missing libraries. sudo apt install libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 libgtk2.0-0 libxtst6

This command solve the issue: env LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/$LIB/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/$LIB/libxcb.so.1' /usr/bin/steam %U

Thank you all. The problem is now solved. I've reinstalled Steam and followed the suggestion here: Steam not opening in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS If you just installed Steam then go to ~/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ and delete the link libstdc++.so.6. Then it should start without problem. Steam is working fine now without ...

No, you can put several games on a single wine prefix. Most of your games you should be able to put in the same prefix. However, if the games require different wine environments, you will need to put them in separate prefixes. (For instance, ones that require Microsoft .Net and ones that require 64bit installs currently cannot be placed in the same prefix.)...

Try ALT-TAB to switch to the program. Also try switching viewports via the last icon on your dock (right above the mounted drives). If that does not work it may be a problem with your graphics and/or it does not run correctly on your computer.

Those two commands will solve your problem, open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and copy&paste (ctrl+shift+v to paste in terminal) them in: mv ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpcre.so.3{,.disable} mv ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpcre.so.3.12.1{,.disable} As for your ...

Only games, which a running on linux will work, not all Steam games. So, you're first place to drop-in would be the app-database of Wine, https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=24749 Can you start steam? If not, than you might not even have installed wine.

looks like you have typical Steam => AMD errors. you will need to do this to solve your issues: Right-Click Steam shortcut and click Properties Select the Application tab In the "Command:" path type in this stuff before your steam path. . . env LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/$LIB/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/$LIB/libxcb.so.1' example: env LD_PRELOAD='...
