I just barely installed Kubuntu and installed steam for the first time. When I try and run it it closes after a few seconds. When I run it in the Konsole I get this message.

Running Steam on ubuntu 16.04 32-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically

It looks like you didn't install the appropriate graphics card drivers,go to Settings->Software&Updates->Additional Drivers and install the latest one's

  • Im not exactly sure where to find this. Im running Kubuntu and my settings doesnt seem to have the Software&Updates. Again sorry for my being novice to this. – Renzbo Aug 15 '16 at 1:45
