Steam will not start

The Steam Client will not start when I try to call it up. When using the Terminal this is what I get:

steam
steam.sh[34711]: Running Steam on manjarolinux 21.2.6 64-bit
steam.sh[34711]: STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
setup.sh[34785]: Steam runtime environment up-to-date!
steam.sh[34711]: Steam client's requirements are satisfied
[2022-05-13 10:00:54] Startup - updater built May 10 2022 16:10:17

You are in the 'publicbeta' client beta.
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1652308694)
SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

This is after I updated Manjaro this morning. Does using the Public Beta matter, is so how do I change this manually?

I use the public beta of steam and can start steam with no issues, altho Iā€™m on gnome and in the testing branch so we might have some differences in system.

Doing some searching this should remove you from the beta:

rm -f ~/.steam/steam/package/beta

The presence of this file triggers the update to the public beta it seems.

You can try to reset:

steam --reset

Removing the complete .steam & .local/share/Steam/ folders has helped some users.

Edit: This seems like a thread to check out.

I fixed the problem by using steam --reset and rebooting afterwards. Thanks.
