Gaming with Steam on Linux


Thanks to Valve's Steam Linux has become kind of a Gaming platform within the last few years. Even the installation ist pretty straight forward and does not require much rights management and so on.

But you can still get some errors. In my case with an AMD graphics card in one of my systems I got this error

libGL error: unable to load driver: r600_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: r600
libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

But all I needed to do was deleting these 2 files and now everything works

rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6
rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1
