Steam crash instantly and no longer starting (because new Steam update?)

My Steam no longer working, its crashing instantly… but i could use it 2-3hours ago without any problems.

I didnt changed anything on my PC, besides i just upgraded firefox but this cant be the case or?

I closed steam normaly and i didnt even rebootet my system in this time, but i just started steam again and it looks like that it was downloading a Update for Steam and then it crashes.

I think Steam download in background a hidden steam update (as it was running few hours befor) that leads now to a crash.

Few weeks ago there was a steam crash after the second last Manjaro Stable Update and i had to install:


But this Workaround no longer is working since this last few hours.

I just installed: lib32-libnm
And it works again.

That was the solution 2 weeks ago actually :smiley:

There was some dialogue around what package was actually the solution.
Apparently lib32-libnm is the correctness :slight_smile:

You mean a workaround and as far i remember there was 3 work arounds at this time.

There wasnt a clear and only way at this time, thats why i installed lib32-libudev0-shim instead of lib32-libnm.

### Solutions

* Installing `lib32-libudev0-shim`
  * Because of the order in `LD_LIBRARY_PATH`, Steam prefers dependencies provided by the system over its own. `lib32-libudev0-shim` installs a version of `` that loads ``, so there will be no ABI-related issues.

And since yesterday its no longer working… The point is, there was more ways to fix this issues.

And i remember the Stable Topic where a few more said they installing libudev instead libnm.
