Steam doesn't launch

Postby zerozero on Fri Feb 01, 2013 12:06 am

after the last auto-update you might notice that steam fails to start
if you try
Code: Select all
steam
in the terminal probably you get something like this
Code: Select all
zerozero@zerozero-at-nadia:~$ steam
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically on ubuntu
/home/zerozero/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 403:  6952 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) $STEAM_DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"

bug report
https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam- ... ssues/1075
there's workarounds but for me (probably because i'm running it in the dev. branch of 13.04) for now only
Code: Select all
STEAM_RUNTIME=0 steam
works
