@DanielPowerNL Sorry for the radio silence on the forums past couple days. Believe it or not, I had a light bulb moment and thought of that exact solution, but then started having problems on Steam itself. End result, I gave up on vanilla Arch and installed Antergos - I find this community to be a lot nicer and the OS to be a lot easier to work with. Way I see it, the behind the scenes stuff that I need that I would spend hours searching the wiki for on Arch being there from the get go far outweighs the stuff that I don’t need like a GUI for pacman and so forth.
Thanks for the help though!
@dgameman1 Don’t expect one. I tried to get help with this issue only to get berated for supposedly “not reading the wiki.” Wonder if they realize the wiki may not be the most clear document to a newbie.
And at least you can play, I’m suddenly getting an error that Steamui.so can’t be loaded!
I wouldn’t say i’m in a “hurry” to play haha, obviously the terminal command can run these games as can my (shudder) Windows PC, but I can sometimes be out of the country without internet access, so it pays to have this stuff figured out beforehand.

If you’re using Arch, you should be asking on the Arch forums rather than here.
He has. But to no avail We are aware of that, he has (discreetly) asked permission if he could post here.
Thanks for your help and understanding .
Thanks Anarch :)
Daniel, thanks for the response, but I actually have already installed Steam-Native-Runtime and am running Steam exclusively from Steam-Native. For many games (the half life series, original Portal, and Counter Strike Condition Zero) this has solved all problems I was having (initially Steam-Native would not run at all), but for the three games I’ve mentioned, they will not run without that particular terminal command.
Sorry if my inital post didn’t make that clear
I’m running Steam on an Arch system installed the Arch Way along with XFCE. I’ve installed Steam-Native and the appropriate runtimes and drivers. For the Half Life and Countet Strike games this seems to work fine. However, for Portal 2, System Shock 2 and Duke Nukem 3D do not run from Steam unless I run
LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/$LIB/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/$LIB/libxcb.so.1 /usr/$LIB/libgpg-error.so' /usr/bin/steam
via the Terminal. Is there a way to set this up so that selecting Steam from the Whisker Menu will run these games? If you need more output from the terminal be glad to post it
