Steam Does Not Open


#1

I cant open steam and when i try all i see is “You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: libc.so.6”

This is a common issue which occurs if you try to launch a 32 bit app on 64 bit Linux.

Fortunately it’s easily fixed.

First open a terminal and install 32 bit support:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update

Then add the 32 bit versions of the libraries used by Steam:

sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libc6-i386

Then, hopefully, you should be good to go on launching Steam. :slight_smile:
