When I used to launch XCOM on steam it is very quick and efficient. That is why I preferred to play it on Manjaro. Recently something happened and new versions of steam appeared in my menu. Now when I try to load the game it has to update microsoft direct x which it never used to do. Also I am pretty sure I have XCOM downloaded more than once. I thought I would uninstall steam then make sure I install the correct version. I uninstalled the two versions and the third does not show up in the uninstall application. I am not sure how to find and uninstall it. Then also the uninstall the games.
I know there is needed information in order to resolve this issue, but I combed through FAQs and other posts and I am not sure what I need to post to get started. Forgive me it has been a while.
So I was able to delete some things that were not needed. I had multiple copies of games downloaded because of the multiple steams on my system. All is fixed. Now I need to determine which steam I should actually use. That is a matter for another thread. I will research and put my findings at the end of this thread in case it helps another user.
