Steam no longer runs


steam no longer opens I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and still

running steam from the terminal gives this

Running Steam on manjarolinux 18.1.2 64-bit

if you fully exit steam and run

steam --console

from the terminal it will output a lot of launch data, it will also get dumped to /tmp/dumps/$username_stdout

can you see any thing weird there?
If it just prints the same as whats in your initial post it means steam is running somewhere.
so you can use ps -aux | grep steam to find the process then use kill $pid where $pid is the pid of the steam process. then try launching from the terminal again to get the output.

Please, open a terminal and run:

STEAM_RUNTIME_HEAVY=1 steam

Then copy here everything.

I had issues with Steam running on the Nvidia 440xx drivers and had to revert to 435xx. Maybe that'll help you too?

It strangely went away with a reboot. Everything is working now. Maybe a combination of reinstall and rebooting was the solution
update 2 apperntly running it from the start menu is what dosn't work for some reason autostart works and running it the term with steam --console works
Update it came back it seems to randomly work or not work running steam --console gives this

any chance you are running Manjaro in a VM?

also over here the solution was to log in to your account via the browser and disable family view.

https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=5149-eopc-9918

no I running it on physical hardware

family view is disabled for me

that's about the best I have sorry, we will need to hope some one with more know how comes along.

its okay I figured it out apparently my steam install got corrupted probably because I was using steam LSI anyway I deleted the steam folder and reinstalled the steam-manjaro package and everything works fine
