• Steam wont open after new Clean Install.


    Just installed a new fresh copy of Antergos. Steam installed but when i click the icon steam will not open. How do I get steam working?

  • HI @John-Vore

    First, did you follow directions as per Wiki for complete setup? link text Ensure you have all libs and repositories correctly set up and installed.

    from the Arch Wiki

    You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: libGL.so.1
    You may encounter this error when you launch Steam at first time. Make sure you have installed the lib32 version of all your video drivers as described in #Installation
    

    what happens when you do steam in terminal?
    Also, how old or new is your hardware? Known issues with some ages of hardware. However, even those/that issue can be resolved.

    from the Arch Wiki:

      Steam makes heavy usage of the Arial font. A decent Arial font to use is ttf-liberation or the fonts provided by Steam.
    

    You also have other errors listed there.
    Came acrsoss an interesting link here.
    Might want to read the whole thread though.
