    Steam reports no errors but cannot boot into GUI.

    Idk if commenting this much is against the rules, but I think I know a plausible solution: Gamemode may be the problem. The previous time I had Steam break, I noticed that Steam fixed itself whenever I reinstalled packages in the Chris Titus Tech Ultimate Linux Gaming Guide, and the last section...

    Steam reports no errors but cannot boot into GUI.

    Ok, so after screwing around with random things in an unhealthy panic (The last thing I tried doing was reinstalling Gamemode, a program I use with my Steam games), I got Steam to boot up into a UI, but this problem is NOT solved. This has happened before, and it will inevitably happen again, so...

    Steam reports no errors but cannot boot into GUI.

    Hello. I posted a thread about a similar problem to this one, and found that the solution was to install some packages according to a guide on the Internet. It turns out that Steam working after that was merely a coincidence. I am now randomly experiencing the problem, and I am yet again lost...

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    Ok look at this. Now Steam prints this log and instantly returns to the shell prompt. Running Steam on arch rolling 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically Pins up-to-date!

    I just realized this forum is pretty small. I see about 500 non-logged in users at once, but as far as accounts that are logged in at once, I typically only see a few. Sometimes I even may be the only one online. Very interesting... usually when I see a public service on the Internet I imagine...

    Keeping Your Linux System Secure In An Insecure World

    I see the former on my screen. That may be a glitch on your end, or maybe it was fixed before I came here.

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    SOOO another funny story... I fixed Xorg. The solution was simple, deleting the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf; Xorg actually works fine without it. The reason I think this problem was caused is the Nvidia driver creating xorg.conf upon configuration, which broke my system. I am so happy, just...

    Here is the Device section: Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" #exact Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" EndSection Any other sections you need? EDIT from after Xorg works: I deleted Xorg.conf to fix the problem but I still saved it: # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file...

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    So using Neofetch I can get a more basic interpretation of my GPU model: GPU: NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 620 Plus I now know how to verify that my computer is running the Nvidia drivers, so it actually seems plausible that this is a driver misconfiguration. Xorg just says what...

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    Here's a pic of lspci output, sorry I can't do better. The blurred part is a part of USB controller info (irrelevant). Actually I can't send images via a phone. When I try I can select an image but nothing happens. EDIT from after Xorg works: here is my LSPCI since I can log in on desktop now...

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    Guys I don't think that missing/conflicting drivers are the issue here. When I use lspci -v, I notice the lines on my graphics card say "Loaded driver: nvidia" and "Available drivers: nvidia, nvidia_drm, nouveau" I notice that when I undo the blacklistings at /etc/modprobe.d/*.conf...

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    I am running both linux-hardened and linux-zen on my computer, Those previous logs may have been on either kernel. I can't log in to my computer to show you any direct information until I fix XDM.

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    My computer seems to be corrupted beyond repair. This thread is about getting my computer to a state where there are no missing or duplicate drivers, something that should be obvious. I don't know what you mean by "undo your blacklist change" because I am utterly confused by the situation my...

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    So funny story, this just became an Xorg issue. In an attempt to blacklist/remove Nouveau, I broke XDM which is my display manager. Now I can't do anything on my computer at all, including logging in and giving you any logs. I get something similar to this: xdm-archlinux.service: Failed with...

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    So I noticed something, looking at the Nvidia wiki article, is that the driver "nvidia" is actually not the right driver I needed to install. I actually use a custom kernel (specifically both linux-zen and linux-hardened in alternation), so in order to have the driver installed properly I needed...

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    I tried to install those and yet again Pacman reports they are up to date already. I noticed in the Steam logs one line BInit - Unable to initialize Vulkan! so it may be a problem with Vulkan but there actually seems to be a ton of errors in the logs. Can't post again because I'm posting on...

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    I tried to install that and Pacman reported that the package in question was already up to date. I reinstalled it anyway, and sure enough no luck. This is my log now: Running Steam on arch rolling 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically Pins up-to-date! Steam client's requirements are...
