Steam sleeping do_wait

I installed steam via Software Boutique but after launching it, nothing happens. I checked the Mate System Monitor and it shows that it is “Sleeping” and has “do_wait” under Waiting Channel. I uninstalled and re-installed it via terminal. Same thing.

Then I ran steam from terminal and I got this:

Running Steam on ubuntu 16.04 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
[2016-12-07 22:52:35] Startup - updater built Oct 13 2016 00:47:16
SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

Anyone experienced this before?

I uninstalled steam, downloaded it again and iinstalled it. It worked :slight_smile:
