Steam won't open in MX Linux 17


Post by mackronickson » Sat Oct 13, 2018 4:44 am

when I run steam from the 'games' tab in the menu, or run the command 'steam' in the terminal, nothin happens. the output I get in the console is:
Repairing installation, linking /home/jason/.steam/steam to /home/jason/.local/share/Steam Running Steam on mx 17 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0) /home/jason/. local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libxcb-dri3.so.0: undefined symbol: xcb_send_request_with_fds /home/jason/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 444: no match: ssfn*
how can I fix steam?

Run a search on the forum, someone recently had a steam problem and sorted it.
