On Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS 64-bit the Steam tray icon on the upper right task bar not working as it should. I tried installing steam as a Debian package and through apt but the issue still persists. Also this issue was not present in 14.04.5 LTS 64-bit. What may be the cause of this(missing libraries)?

~$ steam

  • Can you open steam using the terminal steam?

  • What do you mean by it's not working as it should? It doesn't show up? or it doesn't open the menu when clicked? What?

  • @barotto It does not show the menu, the only thing I get is an empty rectangle.

    Is this your problem? There's a screenshot by user tatokis that seems like what you describe.

In my case with Ubuntu 16.04 it was sudo apt install libdbusmenu-gtk4:i386. So try it if @Vesnog's answer doesn't fix your problem.

The problem was caused by a missing 32-bit library on 64-bit installation and the command that solved the issue was: sudo apt-get install libdbusmenu-glib4:i386

The solution is included in this link, thanks barotto for pointing it out.
