• Steam not working


    When I try and run Steam from the terminal I get the following errors:
    [[email protected] ~]$ steam

    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:

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