STEAM not working on a new device [SOLVED]
« on: November 06, 2016, 11:36:14 am »
Hello, gents! Installed steam on new device and it just doesn't work. Clicking on the steam icon in the Menu does nothing. duh.
I've installed Steam with "sudo apt-get install steam". Reinstalling didn't do anything.
Running Steam through terminal gives this message:

To help us help you, ALL new requests for technical support should include basic system information.

If you haven't already done so, please open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run the following command:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fzthen copy what was returned in the terminal and post it back here.

This was an automated response but please don't ignore it, providing this information now is highly likely to save time for both you and any prospective respondents and aid in the diagnosis of your problem  .. Thanks in advance :)

Note - Please rest assured there is nothing in the output from that command that could be construed as a 'security risk', the '-z' option makes sure of that by filtering out your MAC address.



If you're not sure how to run the above command or how to post the output back here, please see the video tutorial at the link below:
