Problem with installing Steam on Ubuntu 15.04+

1

Actually I have installed the new Ubuntu 15.04 64bit, and when I'm trying to install Steam on it, there is a problem. In fact I have downloaded the deb package from steam website, installed it and when I start it nothing happens. I tried to start it from terminal and what I've got

$ steam Running Steam on ubuntu 15.04 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0_client) libGL error: unable to load driver: r600_dri.so libGL error: driver pointer missing libGL error: failed to load driver: r600 libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

This was originally a problem with Steam on Ubuntu 15.04/15.10. Steam bundles old libs and are colliding with mesa drivers, that is also why closed drivers aren't seeing this problem. Update: It might also be that you are missing some things. See other mchid's answer.

This was originally a problem with Steam on Ubuntu 15.04/15.10. Steam bundles old libs and are colliding with mesa drivers, that is also why closed drivers aren't seeing this problem. Update: It might also be that you are missing some things. See other mchid's answer.

There is an open bug in Steam's github.

The current workaround is to remove the old lib version, at least until valve fixes the issue in their startup script or something like that.

So enter these folders and do this (ignore the x86_64 if you only have a 32bit system):

cd $HOME/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.bak cd $HOME/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.bak

If you have problem with the directory above then you should try this:

Some people have the .steam/steam/ubuntu12_32, others have only .steam/ubuntu12_32. If you don't have these folders, find...

This question has been discussed so many times already but I've tried all those answers I still can't seem to get Steam running on Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit.

My system: i7 6700k, NVIDIA GTX 1070, Asus z170 Motherboard. I've installed proprietary Nvidia drivers (367.27)

I installed steam by downloading from steam website (first tried with repository version but that didn't work so I used website version) and I don't know how to remove/uninstall apps installed with sudo dpkg -i or similar method.

Upon running steam from command line I get:

Running Steam on ubuntu 16.04 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0) libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI2 capable libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri/tls/swrast_dri.so libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri/swrast_dri.so libGL: Can't open configuration file /home/wisemonkey/.drirc: No such file or directory. libGL:...

This question already has an answer here:

After installing Steam in Ubuntu 15.04 x64 it won't start.

After trying this command in terminal steam I get this output:

Running Steam on ubuntu 15.04 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0_client) libGL error: unable to load driver: radeonsi_dri.so libGL error: driver pointer missing libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

And also steam --reset command gave this output:

mv: cannot stat ‘/home/[USER]/.steam/registry.vdf’: No such file or directory Installing bootstrap /home/[USER]/.local/share/Steam/bootstrap.tar.xz Reset complete!

I tried this and nothing else. I have AMD graphic card with Xorg...

Who doesn’t love games? No I am serious, according to statistics including google search results, the video game industry is one of the fastest growing industries for the past 10 years, in fact, even during the global recession in 2009, the video game industry continued to grow.

It is a multi-billion dollar industry and I am proud to say that I probably contributed some of my money towards that amount as well lol.

So what does this mean for the Linux Gaming Community? Because of the ever expanding Linux community, game developers are finally paying attention to us Linux users and new Linux games are being developed as we type.

One of the best examples is the one and only Steam Gaming Client.

Steam on ubuntu 15.04(64-bit) causes High CPU usage over time.
Everything was normal, but, Since some ubuntu updates or maybe steam updates, this has been happening to me. Maybe it's something related to the compatibility and steam need to be updated.

When i start a game mainly, steam uses 100% of the ram memory and the system starts to use swap memory, and then, everything starts lagging and i can't play my games.

This post will show you how to install Steam on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Now, before you say it, I know. You’re reading this with a slightly egregious look on your face because, after all, it’s easy to install Steam on Ubuntu, right?

Perhaps not as easy as it could be.

You asked for this guide

Since Xenial’s launch a fair few readers have mailed us seeking help on installing the Steam, the popular digital games distribution platform, on their clean install. Most of these requests wrestle with the installer package distributed on the official Steam website.

In this post I will show you how to install Steam on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus — both the recommended way, and the very much unrecommended way!

For the purposes of this guide I’m going to assume two things: 1) you’re already running Ubuntu 16.04 (Unity), and 2) you have a device capable of running Steam and/or meets the Steam for Linux system requirements.

In this tutorial we will show you how to install and configuration Steam on Ubuntu 15.04. For those of you who didn’t know, Steam is a digital distribution platform for video games. As Amazon Kindle is digital distribution platform for e-Books, iTunes for music, similarly Steam is for games. It provides you the option to buy and install games, play multiplayer and stay in touch with other games via social networking on its platform. The games are protected with DRM. Recently, over 4500 games are available through steam and 125 million active users are registered with Steam platform.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo’ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you through the step by step installation Steam on an Ubuntu 15.04...

because ubuntu -mate-welcome was written for ubuntu mate, steam doesnt work out of the box, you have to run a command, this command must be ran in the terminal when it doest launch, i had to do it twice, once to launch it, and the updates ran and then after the updates again. For more information on installing steam, please visit: Here are my notes: Update your computer: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade or via the update app sudo apt-get install ubuntu-mate-welcome software-center install steam via the software boutique run these commands in the terminal: cd $HOME/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.bak cd $HOME/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.bak I tried to make this video real, so I show the errors I ran in along the way!

The Backstory

Alright, so I just built a PC, and I thought to myself, "Why don't I just install Ubuntu on this while I save up for Windows?" So I did. It worked, but not for the purpose I created the said PC. I made the PC for gaming, and the problem is, Steam doesn't run on it.

The Problem
I managed to find out how to install Steam on Ubuntu. Went on terminal and typed in "steam" it looked like it was going great until... those lines...

libGL error: unable to load driver: radeonsi_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi
libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

NO! It didn't work! After a bit of searching around I found some fixes involving removing libstdc++ and libgcc_s. But when I tried out the scripts they gave me, all it said was that the file or directory didn't exist.

I hope you guys can...

Skype for Web beta is now available to more users

Skype for Web (beta) is now available to try without an invite, providing you’re in the US or the UK that is.

The browser-based version of Skype allows users to make voice and video calls without needing to install the main Skype desktop app. It works in Internet Explorer and Google Chrome on Windows or Safari on Mac OS X.

But the WebRTC plugin that handles the VoIP side of things is not yet available for Chrome OS or Linux.

It’s not all bad though; Skype’s instant messaging feature should (at some point) work on a Chromebook as it doesn’t require a plugin to function.

So why web and why now? Microsoft say they’re doing it “because the hundreds of millions of people […] told us they want to call and IM when they visit our website.”

“We know how critical it is for you to get to your conversations — and Skype for Web helps you get connected anytime.”
