Fatal Error: Failed to load steamui.so

Postby AFriendlyTrashcan » 2017-02-19 03:22

Hi, I just did a fresh install of Debian, and now I'm trying to install steam. I followed the instructions on the wiki then after installing and running steam I get the error
Code: Select all
Fatal Error: Failed to load steamui.so

I then removed it and ~/.steam and ~/.local/share/Steam then reinstalled it as was suggested in multiple places, but that didn't solve the problem. I also ran it through the terminal this time and I saw these errors that came up right as the download started
Code: Select all

I followed the instructions on the wiki

Running Steam on debian 9 64-bit


Well, the wiki might have the right info for debian 9 (stretch) but if you can post the link to what you did to install, it might help.

I had to do: "apt install -y libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386" to install 32bit nvidia libraries. ("apt install -y libgl1-fglrx-glx:i386" for amd 32bit libraries.)

Since I had the proprietary nVidia drivers installed, the solution to my problem was:

Check which library was 'not found' by steam:
Code: Select all
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/.steam/bin32 ldd ~/.steam/bin32/steamclient.so | grep 'not found'

I checked which library wasn't found by steam using the preceding command and found I was missing 'libGL.so.1'.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Add i386 architecture
Code: Select all
dpkg --add-architecture i386


Add 'contrib non-free' on the end of my package sources in sources.list
As root:
Code: Select all
nano /etc/apt/sources.list


Add 'contrib non-free' on the end of each 'deb' and 'deb-src' line
For example: "deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free"


Update the packages
Code: Select all
aptitude update


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In my case, since I was missing 'libGL.so.1', the solution then was to:
Install 32-bit nVidia libraries
Code: Select all
aptitude install libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386


I could then run steam without getting the 'steamui.so' error (which was actually due to 'libGL.so.1').
