- Steam not opening in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 10 answers
I'm on Ubuntu 18.04, 64 bit.
I downloaded the .deb from the Steam website. I tried installing with Ubuntu Software. It didn't seem to work. I tried installing via the terminal, using various commands and combinations of commands.
sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/steam_latest.deb sudo apt-get update sudo apt --fix-broken install sudo apt-get install -f
In Ubuntu Software, it currently lists both "Steam" and "Steam installer" as installed applications. When I go to Steam and click "launch", nothing happens. When I open the show applications menu from the desktop and type "Steam", a program named Steam, with the Steam logo, appears. I click it; nothing happens.
How do I diagnose what is wrong?
How do I figure out why Steam is not running on my computer?
EDIT – in response to Organic Marble, here is the code output to the command
