Fix for Steam on 16.04 if launcher fails

This may be elsewhere but this is what got it running after launcher fail toady, finally…

mv ~/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/lib/i386-linux-gnu/{,.disable}
mv ~/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/{,.disable}

Just a question: what exactly it repairs? steam is running quite well for me currently, only problem is that I do get a popup about missing files, which I click-off without further problem.

It’s if you have issues installing, as the install fails from the software boutique:
So, instead sudo apt install steam from the terminal, then apply fix when launcher fails but as yours is running it’s moot
