• Steam installation not working.


    Hi im new for Antergos Linux but im not total linux noob. Just not 100% familiar with Arch.
    I installed Antergos today and i selected Steam install. But its not starting up.
    I enabled Multilib from pacman conf and did that process https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/multilib.

    But im not still able to open steam. Clicking steam icon does nothing.
    Here are my details of my computer ->
    7,7 GiB
    Intel® Core™ i5-4690K CPU @ 3.50GHz × 4
    Gallium 0.4 on AMD TAHITI (DRM 2.45.0 / 4.7.2-1-ARCH, LLVM 3.8.1)
    Antergos Linux 64-bit

    Hope that some one is able to help me. Because i really love this OS and i wanna continue using it.

  • My friend says that his steam does not work on the install, but a reinstall with a few tweaks solved the problem. I’m not sure what he did though, but he seems to have mentioned that reinstalling helped. Also, try to remove the dated libraries steam used. As stated on steam’s site, they are working with Ubuntu, and what all linux people know is that Ubuntu uses dated stuff. That may be the reason, too.

    Disclaimer: I haven’t personally tried this, so don’t quote me on this.

  • @karasu Thanks lot. i really really appreciate that you helped me.

    I fixed the problem after many tries and now i was able to open steam.

    Thank you for one more time !
