Unfortunately, installing Steam from UnitedRPMs repository does nothing for me, same result. That's very unfortunate, since I like the current fedora version a lot, but without Steam it's not covering all of my needs.

Hello friends,

I freshly installed fedora 27, and unfortunately I can't get Steam to run.

I followed that how-to: https://linuxconfig.org/installing-st...

Since I'm using proprietary nvidia drivers, I've installed the 32bit libs (install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686) like it's stated in the howto. Afterwards, I installed steam from the rpmfusion repo. Now, if I try to launch Steam, I just get this output ins the console:

[max@fedorabox ~]$ steam
Setting up Steam content in /home/max/.local/share/Steam
Running Steam on fedora 27 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0)

and nothing happens. I googled somed similar issues, it could be that it's linked to 32bit libs, but I installed the required libs, so I just can't figure out what's the actual problem is. Am I missing something? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards, Max
