CS:GO - no text being rendered

CS:GO used to work fine until the NVIDIA updated to 418.56 (20th April), now no text is being rendered. I searched on internet, but with no luck.

I think this might have been caused by the latest update to freetype2.

You could try installing the old package (see here: The game “legend of grimrock” from steam won’t start.) at least to confirm that this is the issue (or not). [Can't promise it won't cause oddities somewhere else though...]

Sadly this didn't fix it for me :pensive:
Also tried to upgrade freetype2, but the problems still persists.

In mate i had to install steam-fonts from the aur, however in my deepin desktop i did not have to do this, not figured out why that is yet.

I have already installed them.

OK, Have you tried running steam from the terminal and looking for errors?

Manjaro steam native configuration found!
Running Steam on manjarolinux 18.0.4 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is disabled by the user
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/libgio-2.0.so.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64): ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64): ignored.

But runs just fine.

Heya I can confirm this issue.
To solve it I run Steam via: STEAM_RUNTIME=1 steam
And this additional launch settings: -nojoy -novid -d3d9ex -high
