Can't run any games with proton on steam-manjaro. Xlib: extension "NV-GLX" missing on display ":0".


I'm having some issues using steam with any proton games. I set up bumblebeed according to this wiki post and verified that it's working with glxspheres and other games that support linux natively from steam.

steam output log:

Any idea what might be wrong here?

You're probably missing some 32-bit libraries.

If you install steam-manjaro those should be pulled in.

Already did that. I have both steam-manjaro and steam-native installed

I can't guess what you've already done. Please detail anything you have already tried; this will save other people's time.

Sorry if I didn't make that clear enough but I thought I mentioned it in the title and also the logs mention it in the first line.

This is the problem when other threads are not brilliantly written and you have to read between the lines... I get used to "filtering out" the word "manjaro" in thread titles as every other issue mentions it... ("$APPLICATION won't run on Manjaro", to which I think, Why mention Manjaro given you're posting on the Manjaro forum?).


Something is off with your drivers or graphics stack. Let's start over, with an inxi -Fxxxz just so we can see what we're dealing with, and double-check there are no updates/changes with

sudo pacman-mirrors -f3
sudo pacman -Syyu

Also post output if that mentions any newer packages.

Can you try doing

export LD_PRELOAD="/usr/lib/ /usr/lib/"
steam steam://rungameid/377160

and post the terminal output.

Sorry this one is really my fault because I forgot to mention that I'm already preloading those libraries since I had some issues with the webhelper not loading because of some odd libraries linked like selinux and libpcre. But yeah, that's not the problem unfortunately.

Ah, that explains those warnings and nothing to worry about there then. :slightly_smiling_face:

My guess would be that steam is loading the intel gpu and not the nvidia one. So either figure out how to make bumblebee detect/load it properly (forum search might help) or try another driver setup. See here Options for Nvidia Optimus graphics for the options.

Or wait for someone who knows their driver-fu. :wink:

@dglt might be keen for some fresh meat feedback for the grinder optimus-switch. :innocent:

no grinding needed, thats what bumblebee is for :smirk:

After installing steam-manjaro and wine-staging, I have no problem with my proton and lutris games

sudo pacman -Syu
sudo pacman -S steam-manjaro
sudo pacman -S wine-staging winetricks
sudo pacman -S giflib lib32-giflib libpng lib32-libpng libldap lib32-libldap gnutls lib32-gnutls mpg123 lib32-mpg123 openal lib32-openal v4l-utils lib32-v4l-utils libpulse lib32-libpulse alsa-plugins lib32-alsa-plugins alsa-lib lib32-alsa-lib libjpeg-turbo lib32-libjpeg-turbo libxcomposite lib32-libxcomposite libxinerama lib32-libxinerama ncurses lib32-ncurses opencl-icd-loader lib32-opencl-icd-loader libxslt lib32-libxslt libva lib32-libva gtk3 lib32-gtk3 gst-plugins-base-libs lib32-gst-plugins-base-libs vulkan-icd-loader lib32-vulkan-icd-loader cups samba dosbox

That series of steps is also known as a "partial upgrade".

Whenever you sync the package database you should always update at the same time, whether that's

sudo pacman -Sy
sudo pacman -Su

or the more straightforward

sudo pacman -Syu

You can even combine these with a package installation so you never forget:

sudo pacman -Syu steam-manjaro
