Can't run steam on arch linux.


After the August 25TH steam suddenly stopped working for me (after OS update)
I can't even get it to start.
this is what i get with steam/steam-runtime

Code:
 Running Steam on arch 4.12.8-2-ARCH 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/$LIB/libgpg-error.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (cannot open shared object file): ignored.
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1500335472)
Please let me know if you need more info.

Have you consulted the steam troubleshooting guide at the Arch Wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...time_libraries

Yes i've already checked that, but anyway i fixed it by downgrading my lib32-nvidia-utils package from version 384-69-1 to 384-59-1, which matches with my actual nvidia package version; It took my a while to realize that both didn't match.
Anyway i'm gonna mark this as solved.

Thanks for help!

^ i had this problem once (not with steam - just some nvidia package mismatch between aur/community and main repos).
glad you got it solved.
