I got black screen like said in this post : PlayOnLinux Steam black screen

Friend's list, Library, everything show me a black screen.

The answer in the link i posted can't work anymore : a part of this answer is to put Windows Version : Windows XP in wineconfig

As of now, steam can't be launched with Windows XP. So I have to put Windows 7 or 10, and the "-no-cef-sandbox" argument seems to be useless alone.

I can add that i also tried to put d3d11 in Native Windows without success. Someone could help ?


I had the exact same issue. I found an easy fix for me:

Instead of putting the "no cef sandbox..." in the Arguments field, just type:

wine steam.exe -no-browser +open steam://open/minigameslist 

That did the trick for me! Hope it works for you too.

  • this works for me. Just adding -no-browser instead of -no-cef-sandbox did the job also. But with this way i can't open friend's list. – Schtroumpf à Lunettes Nov 20 '19 at 13:41
