As background, steam and everything else has been running fine. After I updated nvidia-drivers (and then rolled back to previous nvidia-drivers) I cannot launch steam using primus. I launch steam as follows:

Code:
vblank_mode=0 primusrun steam


and get the error Fatal Error: Failed to load steamui.so with the following in the terminal

Code:
 $ /home/elias/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 152: DISTRIB_RELEASE: unbound variable
/home/elias/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 152: DISTRIB_RELEASE: unbound variable

I recall that this happened to me a while back and creating a new symlink in the steam runtime folder fixed the issue. But I cannot for the life of me find that fix anymore.

Any ideas?

The solution is here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410/discussions/0/458606248630641849/

Basically, just run this and then relaunch steam:

Code:
$ find ~/.local/share/Steam/ \( -name "libgcc_s.so*" -o -name "libstdc++.so*" \) -print -delete
