[SOLVED] Steam [x64]: failed to load steamui.so

Hello,
I was using steam without too many issues when it was in AUR. I updated my system today and I noticed steam moved to [multilib] (I'm on x64) and a bunch of lib32 dependencies were removed. So I cleaned up those dependencies (looking for them with pacman -Qdt), but now steam doesn't load up with the error "Failed to load steamui.so"
Any idea?
Thanks!

I was having the same problem, so I moved $HOME/Steam so that it couldn't find it, then let it reinstall itself. Then I moved my games into the new location, which was $HOME/.local/share/Steam.

Agree with above, had the same problem when moving from the AUR version.  If you rename your ~/.steam to something like .steam-old, and start steam, it will repair your install and re-download the client.

For me:

 mv .local/share/Steam{,.old} 

fixed it.

Zauka, you should ask on the ubuntu forums.  These forums are for arch linux support only.  Also we discourage "necrobumping" old threads, especially with solved thread.
