The version in the Humble Bundles has both 64-bit and 32-bit binaries. The version being sold on Desura is advertised as running natively on both 64-bit and 32-bit systems (this doesn't surprise me, since Desura has a 64-bit client). The Linux Steam version is 32-bit only.

If the Linux Steam client is going to be 32-bit only when other purchase options offer 64-bit binaries for the same games, then I'm going to buy from Steam only as a last resort.
No kidding. Even considering their Ubuntu/Debian centric approach, the Steam boneheads are stuck with anachronistic 32-bit binaries even if 64-bit is available from the game devs. I see a lot of forum posts re: Ubuntu-64 issues because of missing or unavailable 32-bit libs.

I have the 64-bit Desura client running with almost exclusively 64-bit titles. The only oddity is Flare rpg - only 32-bit is available even though it builds fine here as native x86_64.

@zux: your problem seems coming from wrong permissions. Are you running the steam client as a dedicated user (e.g. steam)? Maybe you need to add it to some other group (like video, audio...).
Those libraries are not found because the launcher script specifies their correct path using LD_LIBRARY_PATH upon launch. Retry with
Code:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32 ldd .steam/bin/steamui.so

thank you, I have progress:

bash-4.2$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32 ldd .steam/bin/steamui.so | grep "not found"
	libnss3.so => not found

	libsmime3.so => not found
	libplc4.so => not found
	libnspr4.so => not found
and i think i saw that someone had this problem earlier in the thread, so i'll search

ps. @414N I run steam with my regular user, also tried running as root with same results.

Unhappy

Hello,
I'm a bit shy : this is my first post on LinuxQuestions.org

I am trying to get steam running on my netbook for about 1 week now, but I couldn't manage to get it work.
I have a 32 bit slackware 13.37 system but with many 14.0 updates -maybe I should upgrade one day- which I installed when trying to get steam working.
I have an intel graphic card, I use xfce as window manager.

so, there is the whole output of the console :

Code:
bash-4.2$ su  
Password: 
bash-4.2# steam
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1355957371_client)
Looks like steam didn't shutdown cleanly, scheduling immediate update check

I already saw parts of this code on various websites, but I couldn't find the solution. I already greatly reduced the amount of things displayed in the console
I run it using the root account -bad - because it often gives me some Permission denied errors.

The output is the same with terminal, konsole or Xterm.


I apologize about my English, which is not my native language (correct me please), and about some errors I may have done : It's 1 a.m for me and I am really tired of keeping trying launching steam.

That is certainly not going to work. If you started your X session under your normal user account and then become root in a terminal by issueing "su", your root account will not be able to start any X application (like Steam) because root does not own the X display. Also, the DBus error you see is caused by the fact that your user started the X session and root is not able to connect to the DBus service because of that.

Use your own user account. That is always better.

There is also a crash of the application at the end, but it is not clear why. Steam will crash because of almost any reason. Mostly because of some package you forgot to install.

How did you install Steam? What additional packages/software did you install?

It appeared that the error :
Code:
threadtools.cpp (1439) : Assertion Failed: Permission denied

was because of steam not supporting multiuser. I just rebooted, and then all worked fine (well, I mean fine... I got the usual error output as I posted it yesterday ).

I give it again :

Code:

bash-4.2$
running X as root gave me the same output (just to clarify).

So, I don't exactly remember the names of all packages I upgraded/installed, but I can give you a short list :

Quote:
glibc to the latest version I found
flac
OpenAL
libstdc++so.6 (I upgraded this file as requested by steam, but I then upgraded gcc)
pulseaudio
speex
json-c
flashplayer-plugin
libogg
libvorbis
oxygen-gtk2
(for these last, I did not install the compat32 files, I just verified that they were up-to-date and upgraded if necessary).

edit : intel* also to update my drivers. I then had to upgrade the whole X series packages.
So, I think that the real problem was that steam was not able to find "network manager" as shown in the console output :
Code:
Failed to call method: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files
I just use wpa_supplicant and dhcpcd to connect to the network, I don't use the network manager bundled with KDE (since I do not use KDE)

NetworkManager is not a hard requirement. If it is found, then steam tries to use (I think to properly set up proxies, but I don't know nor care).
I suspect you "contaminated" steam folder contents with wrong permissions while switching between your user and root. Try purging the entire steam folder before retrying.

Thanks,
I already tried to delete the entire contents of ~/.local/share/Steam, but It had no effect.
I will try that again anyway.

I tried to launch steam not in the terminal : I post the log with an attachment (I find that it's more verbose).

Edit : I just installed wicd, I saw somewhere that steam was able to detect it as well as knetworkmanager. I need to reboot to see if this really had an impact...
Edit 2 : It had no effect... I am waiting for your suggests : How can I remove (even if it is not installed) networkmanager (or all references to it)? Or, maybe better, how can I manage to let steam think that it's not installed/force it to use wicd/remove mentions of networkmanager from steam script ?

On a 64-bit multilib system, you will certainly need compat32 packages for libogg and libvorbis. Steam will segfault otherwise. Pulseaudio, FLAC and OpenAL 32-bit compatibility packages are also needed. And speex & jason-c are required by the pulseaudio library in turn but chances are that you do not need those to run steamclient.

And naturally, the glibc multilib packages are needed.

Sorry if I had not been clear enough in my last post. I just upgraded these packages since they were required for the steam client (or the pulseaudio package)

*///////////////EDIT////////////////*

I could manage to set up properly NetworkManager (I did not notice the caps before... so I couldn't use slackpkg)

So, I deleted the ~/.local/share/Steam directory

But when I restarted it, I got this error :

Code:
bash-4.2$ steam

The first error isn't really important, but I think that the steam.sh script should be fixed (at least) in the slackware package :

                while true; do
                        STEAMDIR="`zenity --file-selection --directory`"
I tried to replace the files in public/steambootstrapper_* (with these ones, even if it was the wrong version - it forced steam to re-download these files), but it didn't work.
(the error do not appear anymore, but steam does not start). So the error is elewhere :
Code:

I am currently looking for this now, but I let everything here, hopping that it will help someone...

EDIT : it appears that the error isn't here. I am looking for the line 287
Results : I put DEBUGGER="gdb" before line 272. It told me that :
Quote:
mktemp: cannot create temp file mayeul.steam.gdb.XXXX: Invalid argument
info mktemp said that it needed 6 Xs. So I put 2 X after the filename line 275, but unfortunately, Steam updated the file... I will edit this line when solved.=> Nothing : I could not manage to start the debugger again

EDIT (again : no one answer me, so I guess that you enjoy seeing me continue like that :P) : SteamCMD run fine on my system : I was able to login easily and download... the Win32 version of Galcon fusion

Looks like I need to find the solution elsewhere...

EDIT : there is a new version of steam for Linux, I needed to rebuild the steam client. I now get this error :

Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/steamdeps", line 309, in <module>
    status = main( *sys.argv[1:] )

I am running steam on my desktop now, with slackware 13.37 fully upgraded to 14.0.

Sorry for the double post.

I am trying to adapt the /ust/bin/steamdeps script to vork with slackware, but I am experiencing some trouble : the script uses dpkg, and slackware uses slackpkg.

I replaced dpkg --print-architecture with uname -m, but there is some commands that don't have an equivalent in slackware.

For instance, in the package class, there is a method :

Code:
def isAvailable(self):
                if ( self.installed is None ):
                        return False

                for (op, version) in self.versionConditions:
                        if ( subprocess.call( ['dpkg', '--compare-versions', self.installed, op, version] ) != 0 ):
                                return False

                return True
But I didn't figure out how to compare two packages versions.

there is also some code line 268 which seems to return a package list, but I don't know how it is formatted, so I can't replace it with ls /var/packages

Just to keep everybody's spirit up - Alien's steamclient package works like charm out of the box on a 32-bit Slackware 14. Total disapointment though that I am not able to play my Windows games on it and am limited only to Linux offerings. Or is there a solution?

There is still the old way... Wine + Steam for win32.

It isn't working out of the box for me : today, when I typed steam in the console, it opened up a console window which told me that I had to install steam from the newest .deb...

I think I am going to install slackware 14.0 64 bits, people seems to have less issues with it.
