I'm a newbie with Linux but have just installed a 32 bit version of Ubuntu onto a old laptop. Whenever I try to run steam I get this message in the terminal:

Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "overlay-scrollbar"
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "unity-gtk-module"
Requested Force create but SharedObjectMutex already created

If I right click the steam icon I get the normal store library list but nothing loads, this also happens with Skype it appears to load but no login window appears.

Reading other responses to similar problems I've tried installing the lib32 files but this has had no effect.

    Just a note, you'd only need the lib32 files if you're on amd64. – earthmeLon Sep 21 '14 at 21:32
  • I've found an 'official issue' which is also from somebody using a non-amd64 architecture. – earthmeLon Sep 21 '14 at 21:34
  • what is the make/model of your laptop? – Mateo Oct 27 '14 at 2:01

Maybe this link will help with the Steam issue:

Steam Game Not Loading on Ubuntu 14.04

They mentioned modifying the launch files in a text editor.
