Hi guys,

I have a problem with Steam. I noticed a similar thread saying "Steam wont run" but it is already marked as solved and sadly didn't help in my case. I tried installing via Lite Software, download from valve and also by terminal. Only "terminal-version" did something and patched itself, but did not start. The other two did nothing at all. Uninstalled and deleted everything (also hidden files), made a clean install with Lite, tried to execute via terminal and got this message:

Code: [Select]
arkarion23@Athanasia:~$ steam
Running Steam on ubuntu 16.04 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0)
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

Do you have an idea how to fix this? I am still new to linux so I am not the best at guessing what to install and what not :D

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
ark23

Ok, I found the solution myself.

For anyone who is struggling with the same issue: Steam tries to use it's own libraries that don't work, at least with my amd. So you need to remove them, to force steam to use the system libraries. Just type in Terminal:

Code: [Select]
rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6
rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1

You need to redo this after the first installation, because steam installs its libraries again. Hope this helps!
