Please remove the Ubuntu repositories for steam. Debian is not Ubuntu and you can damage your system by doing that, if you have not already. Steam is already available in the Debian repos, but you just have to add the non-free section after "main".

The wiki should always be your first place to go, not Ubuntu blogs. https://wiki.debian.org/Steam
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: GIMP 2.10.6, Pale Moon 28.1.0, wine-staging 3.16, qBittorrent 4.1.3, Linux kernel 4.18.8, virtualbox 5.2.18

Is that what is messing me up.... Itried to upgrade to testing and then unstable....

I am having troubles getting cinnamon to start will crash or lightdm will fail. It has something to with xorg.conf compiling wrong.

I keep getting something like: onumber of screens dose not equal number of devices.... equal FAIL

Partially true two screens one graphics card I unplugged the second sceen. I am able to login under fallback mode when cinnamon crashes.

I deleted steam.list in the sources.list.d

root@Murphy-Science-Center:/home/ryan/Desktop# inxi -r
Repos: Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/base.list
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stretch main
Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera-stable.list
deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free #Opera Browser (final releases)

So I can login on the original stretch 9 kernal and it says nvidia driver 390.48.... Second screen is blank. The system projects that it is there, and acts like it is there. The light is on, but it is blank.

So how do I completly remove steam from my system in it's current form.

You have broken your system for sure by adding the testing and unstable repositories. Please restore from a known good stable-only backup or reinstall before proceeding: https://wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian

I can log in fine with the LInux Kernal 4.9.0-6 and debian buster/sid.
* So far the only problem is I had to systemctl restart bluetooth to get A2dp HIfFi sink on. The second monitor started working after a restart and I added nvidia-xconfig --cool-bits=28


Linux kernal 4.15 has yet to come on

Here is a example, :

Also key words = How to remove packages from Debian", yields good results.

I also suggest reading this thread: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?&t=114130 it is educational.
