• Steam not working


    When I try and run Steam from the terminal I get the following errors:
    [[email protected] ~]$ steam
    /home/ian/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 161: VERSION_ID: unbound variable

    I have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling but it has made no difference. Anyone got any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Ian

  • Fixed it with a combination of the link posted by solus667 (thank you) and the following link:
    https://manerosss.wordpress.com/2016/05/16/how-to-fix-steam-not-running-with-open-source-drivers-on-arch-linux/

    Just had to re-install the games and it works fine.
