This is the second time this problem happened to me and I seriously don't want to do a fresh Ubuntu reinstall again. I was messing around with desktop environments and installed Xubuntu, KDE, and I didn't like the login screen so I reverted back to the Unity one. My games worked fine on Xubuntu and Unity, but the problems happened after I tried to install Plasma, where the first install attempt failed so I had to reset some settings in order to have a succesful second attempt.

The same kind of problem happened to me when I first tried to install Steam on Unity (which I managed to fix by doing a fresh Ubuntu reinstall):

At first, Steam wouldn't launch, but I've found the solution with some quick googling. Then, the games wouldn't launch. (nothing happens after the "preparing to launch game" window closes) The game's process is running though (with ~10mb memory).

I have the correct Mesa drivers installed for my AMD GPU and my OpenGL is up to date.

Here's the log when I try to open a game like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive:

Managed to fix the problem after all. All I had to do was to remove

libstdc++

and

libgcc_s

with the following commands:

libstdc++:
