Perhaps it cache's some things which get flushed with a reset.

Yup, problem solved. Nothing to see here.

Thanks for the tip.

Good job guys, good job. Special thanks to Dantrell, who was indeed pioneer in this case.

I was running Dantrell's Gnome 3-30 but got stuck to few problems, tried to switch to this, but things got even stranger. :D I decided to go for fresh install, and after a few package mask for lower version I got it all working just fine. Almost. I have full Vulkan support and can play ex. WoW for +150FPS!

But having problems with Steam. :( Maybe some clue what to next? I have Steam running but I get blank sceen where should be news or such. https://imgur.com/a/p4sMTQM

Otherwise seems to be working just fine! So thanks again. [spoiler]Fuck systemd[/spoiler] :D

P.S. Steam was working previously on Dantrell's Gnome. I tried all the fixes I did previously. steam --reset did not solve this issue. :(

And FYI, packages I had to downgrade to order install TS3 was:

=dev-qt/qtxml-5.12.2
=dev-qt/qttest-5.12.2:5
=dev-qt/qtgui-5.12.2
=dev-qt/qtsvg-5.12.2
=dev-qt/qtwidgets-5.12.2
=dev-qt/qtdbus-5.12.2

Also gawk-5.0.0 was giving me troubles, so I would recommend to stay in 4.*.

Struggling with same error. I got Steam running with command "LD_PRELOAD="/usr/lib/libgio-2.0.so.0 /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0" steam". Funny enough, seems to work once and then back to black Steam windows.

GNOME 3.30, including OpenRC support, is now stable for amd64.

As for the Steam issues, Steam runtime is currently incompatible with glib versions over 6 months old still. A potential workaround is to run steam without its runtime (see also: esteam), or running it with GSETTINGS_BACKEND=memory - the core issue seems to be that Steam itself doesn't set or unset that variable, thus /usr/lib/gio/modules/libdconfsettings.so gets loaded (if multilib glib is installed), but that system version is incompatible with that ancient glib from steam runtime and it bombs out or in my case - doesn't show friend list and integrated browser stuff. Steam itself should get fixed; I bet there's a github issue about it somewhere..

Thanks a lot, using the memory backend solved my issues.

(because we all know how soon this will get fixed upstream...)

A more permanent fix:

Update your .bashrc to set /usr/local/bin earlier in your path:
Code:
export PATH=/usr/local/bin:"${PATH}"

Then do the following:
Code:
mkdir -p /usr/local/bin
cat > /usr/local/bin/steam
#!/bin/sh
GSETTINGS_BACKEND=memory /usr/bin/steam
... hit CTRL-D to save the file... and make it executable:
Code:
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/steam
Now whenever your desktop shortcut calls "steam", it will find /usr/local/bin/steam first, set the appropriate environment, and execute the upstream steam script.

That was too good. Thanks for your effort, Dantrell.
