My apologies for 'giving up', I figured a bit of laziness here may lead to more productivity in the long run... :fish: :teehee:

I know this is kind of old but perhaps you don't have steam-native-runtime installed, it's part of the multilib repository.  I had the same problem and installing that fixed it.

sudo pacman -S steam-native-runtime

Welcome to the forums cercos, nice to have you..  :clap:

BTW, I run steam-native all the time on Arch but I have never installed the runtime. Do you know what the runtime provides over just running steam-native via the steam package?

I see that the description says "Native replacement for the Steam runtime"but I thought that was essentially what running steam-native instead of just steam did?

In case you all do not  know what steam-native provides......Steam is compiled on SteamOS which is a sort of Ubuntu variant. Because of this, some distros do not work as well with some games due to library locations, etc.. If you run into an issue, you can usually just run the steam-native executable instead of just steam to fix this.

Quote

Steam bundles its own libraries, they call it the runtime, and the native launcher disables this and uses system libraries.

On Arch specifically note that they use up to date packages in the multilib repo. That means with the native option you might encounter broken ABI libraries that games didn't expect. As such I probably wouldn't recommend using it or at least understand it is broken in concept.

To fix the normal steam probably read this: https://wiki.archlin..._runtime_issues

:th_hi: Hello and Welcome,

Thanks for the advice, but I've had steam running perfectly in Manjaro for a while now... chances are it was a bug in steam-runtime that has been patched by now.
I must install steam on my Arch netbook to see if it works there now, although that machine struggles to render Zork... :ermm: :teehee: !
