I recently installed Ubuntu 18.04 on my laptop. Then I installed Steam via the website yesterday, and it worked. When I tried to launch Steam today it simply crashed as the auto-update began. I used
sudo apt-get purge steam when uninstalling and have tried to re-install both with the download from the website and with
sudo apt-get install steam. The problem persists however.
This is the output I get when trying to run Steam from the terminal:
~$ steam cp: cannot stat '/usr/lib/steam/bootstraplinux_ubuntu12_32.tar.xz': No such file or directory Running Steam on ubuntu 18.04 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically Pins up-to-date!
