In the meantime, while waiting for a answer, you might find something
useful in one of these threads, on the forum:

Search found 1151 matches: +Can't +run +Steam

after running Steam i am getting error:

Fatal Error: Failed to load steamui.so


Also, often just doing a search using the error message as keywords:
Failed to load steamui.so on Debian testing

Have you looked at this ?

Non-propiertary for Nvidia means Nouveau?
Afaik Nouveau is installed automatically by Debian ?

If that is the case, then i'm not getting signal on my monitor on Nouveau

And second thing is open source Nvidia drivers suck :?

Just tested again with Noveau on Debian Jessie 8.6 this time and Steam works fine

So i guess Debian doesn't like propiertary Nvidia drivers?

After switching to propiertary driver Steam still works fine.

So for anyone who have problem running Steam, install and configure it on Nouveau first, then switch to Propiertary.

I found a final solution, it's best to add multiarch support before installing Nvidia drivers

Code: Select all
dpkg --add-architecture i386


& then

Code: Select all
apt update


And if driver is already installed

Code: Select all
apt install nvidia-driver-libs-i386

All that should be in the Debian wiki entry for Steam--did you check?
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Krita 3.3.2.1, Pale Moon 27.6.0, Audacity 2.2.0, mpv 0.27.0, Corebird 1.7.1, Firefox 57.0, SMPlayer 17.11.2

Wiki tells to install this for Nvidia
aptitude install libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386


I tried it in past, but the installer was trying to remove my Nvidia drivers.
