Hello

I have installed steam, but with not much success
I've tried troubleshooting with this guide, but again, not with much success: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Steam/Client_troubleshooting#libGL_fails_to_load_driver

Error I'm getting:

Code:

┌─╼[~]

/home/levente/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6

Have u deleted that ?

DONT just delete files from such directory... The correct way to deal with this is to set the environmental variable STEAM_RUNTIME_PREFER_HOST_LIBRARIES=1
STEAM will prefer system libraries over its bundled

Indeed the variable is definitely a better way to go with...

In fact, Steam should by default prefer system libraries these days, although it may in some cases choose not to do so:

I can confirm this issue on my OpenSUSE 42.2 test box. This looks like a steam runtime compatibility issue which is avoided in other distros by use of the STEAM_RUNTIME_PREFER_HOST_LIBRARIES=1 env variable (the current default) which is getting disabled because steam's startup script can not find ldconfig in the PATH variable. Gentoo had a simular issue and adjusted their package to enable this behavior.

Please contact your package maintainer for steam and point them towards https://github.com/anyc/steam-overlay/blob/master/games-util/steam-launcher/steam-launcher-1.0.0.54-r1.ebuild#L86-L89 as a reference.
