• Steam not starting


    Today I tried to start steam. It failed to start this is the terminal output:

    [[email protected] ~]$ /usr/bin/steam %U
    /home/cubbybear/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 161: VERSION_ID: unbound variable
    /home/cubbybear/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 161: VERSION_ID: unbound variable

    libGL error: failed to load driver: i965
    libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so
    libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

    Is there any fixes for this?

  • Execute this command before and after data download:

    find ~/.steam/root/ \( -name "libgcc_s.so*" -o -name "libstdc++.so*" -o -name "libxcb.so*" -o -name "libgpg-error.so*" \) -print -delete
    
  • The command produce this error. syntax error near unexpected token `('
    thanks for your help

  • @ralphdewitt Fixed. Now the command should work.

  • Thanks for your help. This has gotten steam working. One more question will I have to run this every time I run steam?

  • @ralphdewitt Nope, only after client updates. Or you can just set environment variables for libraries.
