Steam wont open

Hey when i click Check for updates it then says that it is installing updates but after a while it says Update failed…

Something that would help us a lot to understand the problem would be this:

  1. Open the application called ‘Terminal’
  2. In this application run the command:

eos-diagnostics

  1. The above command will create a file with the information of your system (example: eos-diagnostic-160614_111731_UTC + 0100.txt); Send us this file so we can analyze and see a possible solution

I highly recommend to update to the latest version of EOS, which is 3.7.5 at the time of writing. Open a terminal and type:

eos-updater-ctl  update

If this does not work for some reasons or terminates with an error, please provide us with a eos-diagnostics report, by typing:

eos-diagnostics

This will generate a file named something like eos-diagnostics…txt in your home directory. Attach this file here in this thread.

According to https://github.com/flathub/com.valvesoftware.Steam/wiki/Frequently-asked-questions#glxchoosevisual-failed :

If you’re using nVidia, this may mean Flatpak is running userspace drivers that are incompatible with your host installation. The first thing to try is to do flatpak update in terminal.

I see that you have already done this – and yet I see from your diagnostic file that no nvidia Flatpak drivers are installed. Try:

flatpak install --system flathub org.freedesktop.Platform.GL.nvidia-430-40 org.freedesktop.Platform.GL32.nvidia-430-40

@Daniel @jprvita do either of you know any more about what appears to be an nvidia driver issue?
