No Steam games will launch

My initial install was with a 21.3.7 KDE ISO. I believe it was using the 5.19 kernel. I tested Steam, Grim Dawn (Proton), Shadow of Mordor (Native/Vulkan), Path of Exile (Proton), Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (Native), and Civ 6 (Proton). Steam and the games worked without any trouble. I later upgraded to v22.0.0 and upgraded to the 6.1-1 kernel. Now I can launch the Steam application but no games will launch. Native, Proton, Proton-GE, and launch option strings still result in failure to launch games. I’m hoping you guys have some insight.

My setup:
OS version = Manjaro Linux KDE v22.0.0
Kernel version = 6.1.1-1-MANJARO
Steam version installed = v1.0.0.75-2
CPU = Ryzen 7 5800x
RAM = 32GB RAM
Video Card = Asus TUF RX 6800XT
Monitor = (Free Sync) Dell S2721DGF 27.0" 2560 x 1440 165 Hz
Storage = 2TB M.2 NVMe drive using ext4 filesystem

The following is output from steam_run-time launched from the command line:

Moderator edit: In the future, please use proper formatting: [HowTo] Post command output and file content as formatted text

Try Steam (Native).
Steam (Runtime) crashes on my system and Steam (Flatpak) is buggy and i get the same issue, not running games.

Steam Native fails as well.

Did you try completely removing Steam and re-installing it again? If some links broke (some files Steam expect to be in one place are now not there or got renamed or something), Steam will re-do them all on install again. You can backup your game installs, so you don’t have to download them again.

Or use the flatpak version. It didn’t work for me, but doesn’t mean it won’t work for you.

I guess, one thing you can try is using a gaming centric kernel like xanmod.
https://xanmod.org/

I use it, and it’s running my games fine, though, i’m not saying the provided kernel wouldn’t run the games, it should.

There’s a build installer in AUR, it takes a while to compile, but works.

So if it’s kernel related, changing the kernel would fix that.

I only say that cause you mentioned that you upgraded the kernel. Something probably broke there, but why i can’t say, i don’t really know how to troubleshoot that issue, except trying another kernel to see if that one works better.

And especially if the issue is Manjaro specific, since i’m new to Manjaro myself. General linux stuff though, should be applicable to any linux…

That’s all i can think of.
Good luck!

have you redo validation version proton in steam ?
can you report

inxi -Fza
sudo mhwd-kernel -li

Thanks guys for your replies and suggestions.

@veprovina
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling steam and then reinstalling the games and steam still fails to launch any games. I tried switching to the v6.0 and v5.15 kernels and got the same failure result. Thanks for the info. on xanmod. I will have to look into that. I’m hesitant because I would prefer to use the newer kernels as needed and keep things simple (simple being a relative term given the situation I find myself in).

@stephane
Since I reinstalled steam and Proton I’m going to assume that the files are valid. I have 2 side questions to ask before I list the command output. I set aside 32GB swap partition on /dev/sdc2 which matches my RAM size. It may be overkill on the Linux side given that I have 32GB RAM installed but I figured it should be more than enough. So, my questions are, if I declared a swap partition (marked for swap) during the installation:

  • shouldn’t the installer enable the swap automatically?
  • shouldn’t the installer put an entry in the /etc/fstab for the swap?

If it is not automatic what should I do to enable it and have it being used every time I boot into Linux? Currently my /etc/fstab does not show an entry for swap.

Here is the “sudo mhwd-kernel -li” output:

As you can see there is inxi is reporting that no swap data was found. I don’t believe there is anything out of the ordinary other than no swap, but please let me know if you see anything else out of the ordinary or gives any hint as to what went wrong. If there are other tools and troubleshooting techniques/approaches please post info. on them and/or link to them.

Again, thank you guys.

can you add
“iommu=pt amd_pstate=passive processor.max_cstate=5 nvme_load=yes”

on line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=

sudo nano /etc/default/grub ( ctrl+X + y/n for confirm) 
sudo update-grub

is repo multilib in /etc/pacman.conf ?

# If you want to run 32 bit applications on your x86_64 system,
# enable the multilib repositories as required here.

[multilib]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

is there any orphans ?

sudo pacman -Qdt

Here is what “pacman.conf” has:

[multilib]
SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Here is the output from “sudo pacman -Qdt”:

Putting in the grub changes…
The original grub entry:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet udev.log_priority=3"

The new grub entry:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet udev.log_priority=3 iommu=pt amd_pstate=passive processor.max_cstate=5 nvme_load=yes"

Grub entry change was made, update grub was done. Post reboot I tested steam_runtime with:

  • Proton-GE v7-42, v7-43
  • Proton-Experimental, v7.0-5, v6.3-8, Steam Linux Runtime

I tried Civ 6 and Grim Dawn via Proton, and Shadow Modor (native linux/vulkan client). It all failed with seemingly no change.

I next tested Steam_Native with the above and it all failed.

Next, I ran steam_runtime from the terminal and here is the output from attempting to run Civ6 with Proton-GE v7-42:

Update:
While booted with the 6.1-Majaro kernel, I was able to install Lutris/Wine from GUI add/remove software tool. I then installed Battle.Net launcher, Diablo 3, and Diablo 2 Resurrected. The default Lutris-7.2-2-x86_64 Wine version worked for both games. I’m going to do a reinstall at some point, but if anyone sees anything that would be odd, erroneous, out of place, or have ideas/suggestions on how I should approach troubleshooting the issues I’m having please post. If there are documented stuff out on the web, please point me to it. I will test and report after doing a reinstall.

i have from my side
proton 7.0-5

are you using a layer as gameover HUD ?

1 Like

No I don’t use any HUDs and I turned off the Steam Overlay which had no effect on the behavior.

Update after re-install:
I installed Manjaro v21.3.7 KDE (and yes I’ve verified that the install ISO is good). In an attempt to install Steam Runtime the GUI add/remove tool did a full system upgrade to 22.0.0 and installed the Steam Runtime (1.0.0.75-2). So now I’m at v22.0.0 KDE with the v5.15.85-1-MANJARO kernel.

I installed Civ 6 (Linux native client) and it failed. I next installed Shadow of Mordor (Linux native/vulkan client) it ran without any problems. I can get 550 to 630 FPS in the benchmark with my hardware. I then switched Civ 6 to use Proton Experimental and it worked without using any launcher strings. The 2K launcher came up without any errors. The game launched with DX12, I altered some game settings, restarted the game and encountered no issues. I next installed Grim Dawn x64 and again used Proton Experimental and it ran without any problems.

I switched Civ6 back to the Linux native client and ran Steam from the terminal. Below is the output from my attempted launch:

While looking through the output above I found the following:

./GameGuide/Civ6: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined symbol: FT_Done_MM_Var

I googled it and found a potential fix:
Lib Font Fix in Steam forums

I changed “libfreetype.so.6” to “___libfreetype.so.6.old”. I restarted Steam and the Aspyr launcher came up with no errors. However, once I launch the game and get into the in-game menus the game freezes. I then renamed the above shared object file back to its original name. I restarted Steam and put the following string in the launch options box:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6 %command%

The native Linux game now works without freezing and crashing.

Question: If I install both Steam-Runtime and Steam-Native would that cause trouble?

Installing the v6.0.15-1 kernel and continued testing with Steam-Runtime next.

Booted with the v6.0.15-1 kernel, the native game client fails to launch again. The output from the terminal is below. Testing the v6.1.1-1 kernel next with the native game client next.

The v6.0.15-1 and v6.1.1-1 kernels both cause the same native game client failure to launch. In the output I notice the old font library error returned. So, I renamed the library file, removed the “LD_PRELOAD” string and retried. I ended up with the same failure. The error output was the almost identical to earlier output where the only errors were the ignored overlay references. Switching to the Windows client with Proton-experimental and continued testing next.

The v6.1.1-1 kernel breaks all steam games. The following games failed:

  • Deus Ex Mankind Divided (native linux client)
  • Shadow of Mordor (native linux client)
  • Civ 6 (Windows client with Proton-Experimental, v7.0-5, v6.3-8)
  • Grim Dawn (Windows client with Proton-Experimental, v7.0-5, v6.3-8)

The output below is from the Proton-Experimental run. Testing with the v6.0.15-1 kernel next.

[2022-12-31 23:18:22] Shutdown

The v6.0.15-1 kernel causes the same broken behavior as the the v6.1.1-1 kernel. Below is output from testing:

  • Deus Ex Mankind Divided (native linux client)
  • Shadow of Mordor (native linux client)
  • Civ 6 (Windows client with Proton-Experimental, v7.0-5, v6.3-8)
  • Grim Dawn (Windows client with Proton-Experimental, v7.0-5, v6.3-8)

I will switch back to the 5.15 kernel and retest to see if the breakage remains or if the kernel switch allows steam to behave normally.

When booted into the 5.15 kenel Steam installs some update when launched. This is after going through the switch to the 6.x kernels and then booting into the 5.15 kernel. Steam remains broken with the 5.15 kernel.

The 6.x kernels must have caused a similar steam update install behavior that I missed when looking away from the screen. I am now back to square one of broken steam. Below is the output from testing the same games as above:

[2022-12-31 23:51:37] Shutdown

Update:
I did a clean install of Manjaro 22.0.0 from install media, which comes with the 6.1.1 kernel. I installed Steam runtime. Here is where I’m at so far.

Civ 6:
Native client fails to launch. I switched to Windows/Proton Experimental. The 2k launcher ran the first time and fails to launch beyond that point so the following launcher string was employed:

eval $( echo "%command%" | sed "s/2KLauncher\/LauncherPatcher.exe'.*/Base\/Binaries\/Win64Steam\/CivilizationVI.exe'/" )

With the string above the Windows/Proton Experimental version runs. I’m able to start a game and play a bit without error.

Deus Ex Mankind Divided:
The native Linux/Vulkan client works without any problems.

Witcher 3:
The Windows/Proton-Experimental version, with all the new recent updates, runs without problems. This includes the RED launcher running without error.

I’m going to uninstall Civ 6 and Steam-runtime, install Steam-native, test and report back.

Latest Update:
I uninstalled Civ 6 and steam-runtime, and then installed Steam-native (from the official repositories).

Civ 6:
The native client fails. I again switched to the Windows/Proton experimental version and it ran. The 2K launcher works on the initial run and does some tiny update, but fails to run after that thus the launcher string to skip the 2k launcher is used.

Deus Ex Mankind Divided:
The native Linux/Vulkan game client fails to run. I did not bother to test Proton because I would like to use the Linux Native/Vulkan version of the game.

Witcher 3:
The Windows/Proton Experimental version fails to launch.

The Civ 6 workaround for now is to run the Windows/Proton Experimental version of the game. I fear that I’m going to be right back at a broken installation within a few big OS and kernel updates, and I have no idea how to properly troubleshoot the issues.

Update:
I was able to get Steam and its games working properly on a 6.0 kernel on Linux Mint. Other Linux gamers report that they encounter no problems running Steam and the games on 6.x kernels on other distros (Pop_OS 22.04, Fedora 37, Arch Linux). This is has been reported across multiple sites. This would appear to limit the problems I encountered to Manjaro. I’ve shared info. about my setup and terminal output with other Linux gamers and so far nothing seems out of the ordinary with my setup. I’m unsure how to proceed with troubleshooting so that I would at least be able to pin-point exactly where/how the break occurs, and move closer to resolving the issue. The Linux Mint install is only temporary, because I would prefer to run Manjaro KDE.

Below are the steps I took while testing Linux Mint Cinnamon (LM21-C):

  • I removed the Manjaro KDE 22.0.0 partition
  • installed LM21-C, which comes with a 5.15 kernel
  • upgraded LM21-C to LM21.1-C
  • installed Steam (1:1.0.0.74-1ubuntu2)
  • installed Wine and Lutris
  • installed these games into Steam… Shadow of Mordor (Linux native), Dues Ex Mankind Divided (Linux native), Civ 6 (Linux native), Grim Dawn (Windows/Proton-Experimental), Witcher 3 Grim Dawn (Windows/Proton-Experimental)
  • installed these games into Lutris… Diablo 3/Battle.net, Diablo 2 Resurrected/Battle.net
  • No problems were encountered while testing the games
  • I upgraded the kernel to 6.0.0
  • Again no problems encountered with the games running on 6.0.0
  • I switched Civ 6 from native to Windows/Proton-Experimental and encountered no problem running the game.

Thank you for doing all of your testing with Steam and games. While I’m not trying to play the same games, I’m finding it difficult to get most games to launch. Even ones that claim to have Linux supported versions. I’m glad its not just me. Not sure what the solution is as I don’t like having to close everything and reboot into windows just to play a game.

Have you considered switching to steam beta? It’s what I use, and all my games work.

@ydar Steam Beta did not make a difference in games loading. Thanks for the suggestion though
