• Stuck with Steam


    I seen this topic and made some headway with getting my Steam install to work. I was able to get the Steam install agreement to pop up, however, it is still hanging.

    Here is the output of my terminal:
    [[email protected] ~]$ steam
    /home/dan/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 161: VERSION_ID: unbound variable
    /home/dan/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 161: VERSION_ID: unbound variable
    Running Steam on antergos 64-bit
    /home/dan/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 161: VERSION_ID: unbound variable
    STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
    Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0)

    And then it just hangs.

  • run this command to remove libraries known to cause issues with steam on arch.

    find ~/.steam/root/ ( -name "libgcc_s.so" -o -name "libstdc++.so" -o -name "libxcb.so*" ) -print -delete

  • Thank you for your prompt reply.

    So I wasn’t able to run that command but I saw where you were going with it. I went ahead and removed libgcc* under the ~/.steam/root/… directory and ran steam and it got a bit further. It started updating but after the download I got the error “OpenGL GLX not supported” popup. Is this because of my older hardware? Is there a fix for this? I’m running an older Lenovo T61 Thinkpad.

    Here is the output I get when I run steam:
