I use to love how easy Steam was to install on Linux, but their current crash-loop makes this app unusable on Mint and other distros. Sad day for Linux gaming.
pathetic, Steam does not launch on Linux, what is the command/script to fix this issue?
for some reason there are two versions showing in my software manager - https://community.linuxmint.com/software/view/steam-launcher (current, less upvotes; probably installed also with deb file from Steam site) and https://community.linuxmint.com/software/view/steam:i386 (more upvotes?)... I use steam for few months; it usually only self updates but from time to time it did not start at all. When starting "steam" in terminal, I found out there was problem with missing APT package for python (in the end that was caused by using python distib. from LinuxBrew which I uninstalled to use usb/bin/python3 again). This asks me to install missing packages which is weird when it sometimes did start ("Steam needs to install these additional packages: libc6:amd64 libc6:i386 libegl1:amd64 libegl1:i386 libgbm1:amd64 libgbm1:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:amd64 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1:amd64 libgl1:i386 steam-libs-amd64:amd64 steam-libs-i386:i386").
Valve has done amazing work to make gaming on linux not only viable but desirable. The proton compatibility layer does wonders for playing an extensive amount of my steam library. Highly recommend. The version in the Software manager may be out of date, consider downloading the .deb from the Steam website at store.steampowered.com/about/.
Would be 5 stars if skins worked easily for Linux. Other than that, 110% thanks to the folks at Steam for this and all the effort in Proton for making gaming WORK for Linux
It needs an update
I am a Linux Mint user and since I installed Steam (with proton activated) I can play at least all the games I ihave interest to play. The last upgarde of Stema was a little bit dificult to install but at the ned was OK.... Great platform for gamin using Linux and to have FUN. Thank you.
Steam freezes my machine. Not immediately but after about 20 to 30 minutes, I’m running LMDE 4. Also I need to use orca and the screen reader can’t read the text on steam. Although orca can read there website.
Don't work anymore
Everything for Linux works flawlessly. I tested Proton only on one game and unfortunately it didn't do very well but that's the detail. I recommend this program
Works for me ^^ Just download the .deb on steam dudes and it's works perfectly ^^
Not working anymore. This need an update.
I can't get it to work, it's frustrating!
I like it because it's steam, even if i'm pretty sure Epic Games market will become bigger. Anyway, this version is not working anymore for me.
