Steam doesn't launch

Postby zerozero » 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

bug report

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
