Steam would not run after install but solved with script

Hi all

When I installed Steam (I was using Sparky 4.1, kernel 4.1, now Sparky 4.2, kernel 4.2.0-1-amd64), I found it would not run. However, after visiting an Ubuntu forum, I found that executing the following command from the command line:

LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6′ DIAPLAY=:0 steam

that steam would work. I have written this command into a script which is executed by clicking onto my edited steam shortcut. I am using SparkyLinux 4.2 Xfce x86_64, kernel 4.2.0-1-amd64 on an Acer Aspire 5745G Laptop using the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau 1:1.0.11-1+b1 amd64 X.Org X server -- Nouveau display driver.

Hello:

I recently downloaded the latest XFCE version of Sparky Linux. However, after successfully installing Steam, the Steam launcher fails to load Steam. Nothing is displayed on the screen. I checked the /var/log/messages and see no error messages pertaining to this issue. I tried your script via CMD line and this still did not work. Do you have any further suggestions.

I'm using the 64bit version of Sparkly linux.

Hi
Try to run steam in a text console and see the output.

From the error output. It appears the root cause is a video drive issue. Does anyone know the steps to resolve the issue?

" have written this command into a script which is executed by clicking onto my edited steam shortcut"
