Libgconf-2.so.4 missing in Garry's Mod

Hello,
I downloaded garry’s mod on steam but when I run it I get this error in the application:

`Couldn't load: /run/media/<user>/42A9F971554C9A67/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/GarrysMod/garrysmod/bin/client.so

Reason: libgconf-2.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Please try again. `

when I do “whereis libgconf-2.so.4” in the terminal I get:
libgconf-2.so: /usr/lib/libgconf-2.so.4 /usr/lib/libgconf-2.so

I checked this path in dolphin and it says that libgconf-2.so and libgconf-2.so.4 are links and don’t have permissions.

Something i tried is:

pkgfile libgconf-2.so.4

Also I think its good to note that I chose a separate hard drive for my game files

Thanks in advance!

Try installing lib32-gconf from the AUR.

Thank you it works! The reason I couldn’t find it in the AUR before must’ve been the wrong file name I used
