Every time I click on the steam application it will update but then the update box disappears and then nothing happens. How can I fix this? I'm using Ubuntu Mate and have a 32-bit system.

This is the output:

hershey@hershey-VGN-FZ180E:~$ steam
Running Steam on ubuntu 16.04 32-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
[2016-08-15 01:19:50] Startup - updater built Jul  8 2016 21:43:51
SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

Also there is nothing I could find to help me using 16.04

  • Run steam from terminal and edit your question with the output. – Raphael Aug 15 '16 at 2:46
  • try launching it with DISPLAY=:0 steam do you get the same error? – Zanna Aug 15 '16 at 6:08
  • I don't know how to do that. I'm still learning the ins and outs of Ubuntu Mate. @Zanna – Hershey Gamer Aug 15 '16 at 6:22
  • Nothing changed I got the same error. – Hershey Gamer Aug 15 '16 at 6:28
  • OK, long shot, but try it with DISPLAY=:0.0 steam and check echo $DISPLAY... try matching the value so whatever you get from echo $DISPLAY use in DISPLAY=.... steam – Zanna Aug 15 '16 at 6:56

Run this in terminal: env LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6' steam
