I recently purchased and installed an AMD Sapphire R7 4GB 240. Ubuntu automatically switched to some Open-Source Drivers named Gallium 0.4 on AMD OLAND.

For some reason Steam is not able to launch anymore. I tried opening it from command line and this error came up:

Running Steam on Ubuntu 15.04 64-bit

STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically

Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1440016726)

libGL error: unable to load driver: radeonsi_dri.so

libGL error: driver pointer missing

libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi

libGL error: unable to load driver: radeonsi_dri.so

libGL error: driver pointer missing

libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi

libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so

libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

(Steam used to work properly)

I believe Steam was not able to find Official Drivers, since I did not install them, which I am unable to find. A DVD with those drivers was included, but it said "Windows XP,Vista,7,8". Not Mac or anything.

Is anybody who knows what am I doing wrong?

EDIT: I started it up with the help of irc.ubuntu.com with this article: https://wirejungle.wordpress.com/2015/01/09/how-to-fix-broken-steam-linux-client-with-radeon-graphics-driver-workaround/ ... but I can't start up any game at all

Second Edit: You can also tell me how to run games on Steam while running this following command:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6 DISPLAY=:0 steam

EDIT 3: @SachinKamath told me to re-install Steam from the command line, after deleting Steam. (She was right, even though a Steam Launcher problem seems to appear)

But the following error appears if I run it on command line: Erm.. I got one problem..

Running Steam on ubuntu 15.04 64-bit

SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred

X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

(Was it a corrupted download? Perhaps?)

  • try restarting your display manager using sudo service lightdm restart – Sachin Kamath Aug 25 '15 at 13:33
  • I will try. P.S. I am not using fglxr since I cannot login. Login Loops... not even with CTRL + Alt + F1/F2, since it leads to a black screen. Empty. EDIT: @SachinKamath Your trick didn't work.. Steam seems to not be able to find some files. – Who Aug 26 '15 at 4:55
  • How did you install steam? You downloaded the deb file from their website? If it's so, remove it and then do a sudo apt-get install steam – Sachin Kamath Aug 26 '15 at 13:35
  • It will automatically install the required librarie and packages required for you. – Sachin Kamath Aug 26 '15 at 13:36
  • Should I delete the .steam folder too? @Sachin – Who Aug 26 '15 at 13:46

As mentioned in the comments, the solution is to remove the .deb file installed from the Steam website and do sudo apt-get install steam as it automatically installs the required libraries and packages required for the proper functioning of Steam.

  • Perhaps it was corrupted download? Let me try again.. – Who Aug 26 '15 at 14:25
  • I have updated the answer. – Sachin Kamath Aug 26 '15 at 14:45
  • This is not my problem anymore. I got a new error, check the EDIT 3 on my post – Who Aug 26 '15 at 15:51
  • This one is a graphic card specific error. You should probably open a new thread on this so that others can help you out. I tried my best to help you but my knowledge of the X drivers is limited. After opening a new thread, do post the link here. Cheers mate :) – Sachin Kamath Aug 26 '15 at 19:09
