    Civ Beyond Earth

    ./CivBE: error while loading shared libraries: libtbb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    
  • try to run steam-native and NOT steam-runtime and you should be fine

  • @kyrisk said in All Civilization games fail to start:

    try to run steam-native and NOT steam-runtime and you should be fine

    I tried and got a library error :

    You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:
    libXtst.so.6
    libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0
    libpulse.so.0
    libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0
    

    Fixed that by getting necessary packages.
    Steam overlay starts, I can see the processes in “ps aux | grep steam” BUT it still fails to do anything after I login.

  • In most civilization games you need gcc-multilib and lib32-intel-tbb (you can get it from AUR)

    if you have all these and native steam you should be able to run it
