• How do I get steam to run?


    Hello! I can’t get steam to run. I successfully installed it, but it doesn’t seem to open. Any help would be awesome!

  • Hi,
    It’s difficult to say without more info. Have you tried to run it from a terminal window? What messages gives to you?

  • Hi mangoman.
    I had a similar issue. Please have a look at my thread on getting Steam to run.

    If you have 64 bit, you need to install the 32 bit lib for this program. Also, after going to the Arch Wiki, look at the graphic drivers you might need.
    Do

    grep -e VGA -e 3D

    to find out.
    Also, is Steam in your program list? If it isn’t then you might want to do what Karasu suggested to me in that same thread.
    Do
    sudo pacman -S steam --force
