Launch Steam on Debian 9 with a VPS

Postby kolega1103 » 2018-06-08 16:14

Hey there community,
I am pretty new to Linux and Debian at all, the last few days I installed Debian 9 on my VPS and afterwards a desktop environment. I installed steam, but after it installed everything and was about to launch it said: "OpenGL GLX extension not supported by display. I made some researches but I am not really good in understanding and tried a few of old tutorials but they didnt worked. Thats why I am asking you and pleasing for help :cry:
If you are able to help me/had the same problem please respond I would be very grateful.
Thanks in forward,
Your Oliver

I don't know which "tutorials" you saw, but there is a simple one at Debian's wiki:
https://wiki.debian.org/Steam
It can be found by typing "Debian Steam" in the google search box, it's the very first hit. What a surprise.
