I've installed steam through the software boutique, but whenever I try to launch it, it fails. I get the steam popup window saying that it is updating steam and checking for updates, but it crashed before anything else happens. I've tried the solutions posted here (Steam won't open in Ubuntu 15.10) but it doesn't solve my problem.

Here is the output when I try to run steam in a terminal.

STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically

  • askubuntu.com/a/812114/15003 may help. – edwinksl Oct 10 '16 at 19:11
  • thanks for the suggestion, but the same thing still happens – Wyatt Henke Oct 10 '16 at 19:48
  • A couple of things you can try. 1. STEAM_RUNTIME=0 steam. 2. Exec=env LC_ALL=C steam $@ 3. ldd steam | grep found and look at any libs that are missing. Install the missing libs – GrannySez Oct 11 '16 at 3:46
