Cannot run Steam

Hello,

I can't get Steam to work on my clean Artix install. I've tried installing 32 bit libraries (it originally complained about libc.so.6 not being present) but now it's throwing me another error that I don't know how to solve.

I'm posting my terminal output:

Code: [Select]

I've tried resetting steam with steam --reset, and reinstalling my nvidia gpu driver. also deleting my .steam and .local/share/Steam folders in my home path, in case something was wrong. Nothing worked. Can I try something else?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Oh, I seem to have fixed it. Nothing in this useless Steam terminal output thing told me that I had to install the package
Code: [Select]
lib32-nvidia-utils
. Hopefully games will work too. I'll post here in case I have more problems.

Edit #2:

Yep, called that one off as fixed too quickly. I'm having another problem, now I can't use the friends UI or browse the store within the Steam client. I'm checking the arch linux wiki but I don't see any solution for this. do I have more things missing?

Now I've tried installing the steam-native-runtime package, and Steam doesn't run in runtime mode (crashes on boot), but it runs in native, although the problems with the friends list and store browser not working persist.

That's a common problem. So I'm surprised that you can't find it because it's on the top red banner of wiki page [1]

As the wiki said, you can install steam-native-pcre-fix in AUR while you wait for official fix

If I can hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate!
