Steam not working

Added by Brad Heffernan 3 months ago

I installed steam and when I run it I get the accept box or whatever it is on first run and then nothing happens. I'm running 64bit OS is there something else I need to install for this to work?
Thanks

Try to run it from terminal with something like this

steam > ~/steamlog

and paste this steamlog (it will be in your home folder) on service like pastebin, copy link here.

First looks very similar to your issue. Maybe fixes from that thread will help you.

I thought about USE flagsin mesa package (abi_x86_32) but it's here so this is not an issue.

Found a fix and got it working on my calculate desktop :) YAY!! simply removing the libs did the trick with this command i found on the steam forums

 find ~/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime \( -name "libgcc_s.so*" -o -name "libstdc++.so*" -o -name "libxcb.so*" -o -name "libgpg-error.so*" \) -print -delete

So it's valve's fault, they should update libraries.
