Steam - libSDL2-2.0.so.0 is missing [Solved]

Post by B3rtm3n » Tue Mar 05, 2013 16:22

Steam updated today and I got following error message:

Code: Select all

You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:
libSDL2-2.0.so.0
Now steam does not start anymore .

Does anyone has a solution?

Ps. I also noticed that since almost 2 weeks no new updates/upgrades were released, is this correct?

Code: Select all

# find / -name "libSDL2-2.0.so.0"
and also there are no belonging packages!

Damn Valve... It seems to be highly sperimental!!!
SDL 2.0 (WARNING: UNDER CONSTRUCTION):
hg clone http://hg.libsdl.org/SDL


You can build directly from a fresh clone of SDL 2.0.
SOURCE
Hope future developments won't be Linux is Ubuntu for Steam, and other distros will have to wait... :evil:

Found the solution on Steam discussion:
Delete the file

Code: Select all

~./steam/steam/package/beta
, this will opt you out of beta, and Steam will start up like it used to.

Btw, you can however remove yourself from beta branch, search for the option inside Steam settings.

Ok, I used Dolphin to search but forgot to enable hidden files.
It is located in: /home/yourusername/.local/share/Steam/package/beta

Will give it a try...

It did not work (btw I am not in steam beta)

what I did was removing clientregistry.blob in the steam folder and everything located in the folder /.local/share/Steam/package/

restarted steam and it works
