Freezing SteamUI Debian 9 Stretch

Postby MSB » 2019-01-12 14:14

A while ago, I'm started to facing with a bug in steam. Tried to install all steam depends again, erased and installed again, used with runtime and runtime disabled, the result always same.

Problem is steam freezing while using its ui. Specially with menus or more than 1 tabs(for examle opened steam library tab with friends tab which become exists in different windows or in steam library part, there are some options in menu part).
Searched everywhere, looked every forum debian or not debian, no info... And funy part is that, steam not giving special error/warning info in terminal :|

The flatpak version is clear, and working fine but flatpak not good at changing path of games to different disks and also more importantly can't useable with bumblebee commands :(

Thus I'm using deb version of steam.

Note: I know one more friend which have same issue on Steam.


Debian version: 9 (Stretch)

Udated,

Debian version 9 (Stretch)
Steam version 1.0.0.59

That's odd, I didn't find that ver in the repo, how you installed it? If it's made for a later ver or another distro, that would be a clue why it doesn't work on stretch.

Trying to install new stuff or foreign debs on stable leads too all kinds of problems, use a backport instead if there is one, or make one yourself.

The error msgs you posted mention that maybe your gtk theme is involved in the problem, but maybe not, have you tried a new default user account to test it?

Udated,

Debian version 9 (Stretch)
Steam version 1.0.0.59

That's odd, I didn't find that ver in the repo, how you installed it? If it's made for a later ver or another distro, that would be a clue why it doesn't work on stretch.

Actually, its from Steam's origianl deb from https://store.steampowered.com/about/ and it updates itself.

Tried 1.0.0.54-2: i386 (stretch - stable) and 1.0.0.49-1: i386 (jessie - oldstable) but result same, amybe even worst, less terminal output with no error.

You really need a good stable os to run anything. I only use debian stable, nothing added, and I don't even use the non-free repo or I would try to help more. My advice would be your deck it's a wreck if you're installing a bunch of crap from different versions/distros. Get the underlying os stable, then try a stable ver of steam on it.

I'm just an old guy, still trying to beat "The Ultimate Doom" from about 20 (30?)yrs ago so I don't need steam. Some other people run it though, so hang in there for a better answer.

Thanks a lot for your attention and help anyway. As you told, I'll wait for another solution for a while.

Btw The Ultimate Doom Relase Date: December 10, 1993 -> It makes 26 yrs, nice guess.

When installing steam, did you read the wiki article?
https://wiki.debian.org/Steam

Note that you must enable multilib repo to install 32-bit depends.

There are also troubleshooting examples there. Trying other versions of Steam, like oldstable, is wrong and you should avoid it.
Code: Select all
steam
is just a wrapper package, it will update itself to the latest version once you run it.

You mentioned that you have a bumblebee setup?

What are the graphics chips being used?

Does Steam still freeze when you run it with/without optirun?

While running steam at Intel, freezing with no specific error message as first post.
While running steam at Nvidia, for now, seams smooth, no freezing faced.
I already using steam with nvidia for temprorary solution. But its makes me crazy, why i should run steam with nvidia? Anyway, seems like intel driver issue
Any suggestions?

Isn't that a function of how the gpu switcheroo works when using bumblebee?

I am not sure but it says:

Power Management
A primary goal of this project is to not only enable use of the discrete GPU for rendering, but also to enable smart power management of the dGPU when it's not in use. We're using either bbswitch (a module) or vga_switcheroo (kernel module, experimental) to do this in Bumblebee.

bbswitch is packaged in Debian and is automatically installed when choosing to install bumblebee through the repositories.

Since Bumblebee 3.0, this feature is enabled by default, using bbswitch. This allow automatic power management, without any configuration needs. If Power Management doesn't work on your laptop, please go to this Power Management (PM) page and help to improve Bumblebee.

either or bbswitch or vga_switcheroo they function similarly.
using the dGPU (nVidia gpu) for the heavy graphics lifting
than sending the dGPU rendering pipelines to the IDG (intel gpu).
Both were developed initially for laptops to conserve battery power
by powering down the dGPU when the battery switched the machine to low power mode.
But with newer Desktop boards showing up with the same hardware
the development is changing rapidly to include the new Desktop
hardware too where low power mode is not very important at all
but still needs to be included for lappys...

check out the bumblebee wikii
Comparison of PM modes
https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/Bumblebee/wiki/Comparison-of-PM-methods
and the project history
https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/Bumblebee/wiki/History-of-the-project
there is more from both intel and kernel about vga_switheroo
that helps get a less fuzzy picture of how the things are supposed to work.
bbswtch description from bumblebee githug
https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/bbswitch
which is very similar to the bbswitch description in the PM modes comparison.

Actually, my problem first occured about 1-2 month ago, and my laptop made at 2015.
So, to be clear, i am not gettin to a point. What i need to do or understand? Seems like dead end..
