Question Every time I plug my phone into my computer Steam shuts down (disappears immediately)


I'm on Kubuntu 19.10 currently.

The phone is a Blackberry Passport v1.

This is truly infuriating. I think it's because linux is detecting that my phone CAN be tethered via usb to act as a network connection, even though I have it disabled on my phone.

Can I fix this somehow?

Did you collect any crash logs? They may reside in various amount of places, like /tmp/dumps, /var/log/steam, ~/.steam and so. If there's no any, you may try catching the stderr output, or, if there's no output too, run Steam under strace. The logs should shed the light onto the source of the problem.

In that file there is a bunch of non ascii characters, perhaps some binary data. Do you want me to post the contents of it somewhere?

This is the last thing in the file

Code:

I'm positive this is a KDE issue. Perhaps I should start troubleshooting there.

If you can't see any ASCII parts here, then it will be barely useful. It's easier to get a backtrace via a debugger. Try to install gdb, then run steam with the DEBUGGER=gdb environment variable, type r, reproduce the crash, then type bt.

I'm guessing that these may be SystemD logs. If so, they can be viewed with journalctl.
