Mangohud does not work with Steam and Heroic

Hi All,

I have an issue with a freshly installed system. I install Mangohud as well as goverlay from spftware manager.The vkcube works fine and i can change the parameters within goverlay. all works.

however, when i start a game with mangohud enabled in Steam (mangohud %command%), the game simply does not start.

same with Heroic, when i try to run a game with mangohude enabled, it drops the following error message:

“Mangohud is enabled, but mangohud executable could not be found on $PATH”.

did anyone face the issue so far ?

thanks in advance


So you installed the package mangohud (and steam and heroic-games-launcher) from the repos?
I ask because pamac can provide SNAP and Flatpak too, and those might not work as expected.

Also heres a related (heroicgames) issue thread:

Welcome to the forum! :wave:

I have no issues using MangoHud with Steam, Lutris or Heroic.

❯ pacman -Qs mangohud
local/lib32-mangohud 0.7.1-1
    32-bit libraries for MangoHud and MangoApp
local/mangohud 0.7.1-1
    A Vulkan overlay layer for monitoring FPS, temperatures, CPU/GPU load and more.
❯ whereis mangohud
mangohud: /usr/bin/mangohud /usr/lib/mangohud /usr/lib32/mangohud /usr/share/man/man1/mangohud.1.gz

thank you both for the prompt help! highly appreciated.

the issue was, that the 32 bit library package was not installed by default. i had to do it manually, but now seems working.

thanks all
