Steam process is showing in System Monitor, but UI is not launching.

More From » steam


Issue seems to be solved now. I changed the graphics from nvidia-510 to nvidia-470 in Software and Updates.

I removed earlier installs:

sudo apt remove steam steam-launcher steam-installer
sudo apt purge steam steam-launcher steam-installer

sudo rm -rf ~/.local/share/steam
sudo rm -rf ~/.steam
sudo rm ~/.steampath
sudo rm ~/.steamid
sudo rm -rf Steam
sudo rm -rf /usr/lib/steam

Then installed steam via wget

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

sudo apt update
sudo apt install wget gdebi-core libgl1-mesa-glx:i386

wget -O ~/steam.deb

sudo gdebi ~/steam.deb

Then ran steam via terminal


This solved my problem!


Also, when I ran steam through terminal, an error was shown:

Could not connect to X session manager: None of the authentication
protocols specified are supported

For this, a solution was mentioned on the steam website to check $DISPLAY

DISPLAY=:0 steam

Don't have much idea what this is (I AM NEW to Ubuntu and anything open-source). This might help if nothing above this helps.
