[Solved] Steam UI (library/store etc) doesn't show up after login

So I was trying to give someone steam family sharing access earlier tonight and since that was a slightly confusing process I logged out and back in to my steam account numerous times. Then all of a sudden the UI just didn't show up anymore after I entered the login, it just wouldn't show up - multiple steam processes were running fine. I started it in terminal to see the output:

There are also no errors with the normal steam binary. I did "steam --reset", tried again and it failed the same way. When I login to a different account (a new one I made for testing or one of a friend, it doesn't matter) the UI shows up and everything is fine. If I try to login to my normal account, the UI just doesn't appear again. I tried to move the whole ~/.local/share/Steam folder to somewhere else because I figure it has something to do with some messed up config for my account. Steam starts and asks to download all that stuff again, I agree, it does, I login to my account, same shit. How do I fix this?

Re: [Solved] Steam UI (library/store etc) doesn't show up after login

Ok, I solved it. Apparently family view is bugged on linux. I enabled it when trying to figure out the family sharing thing and as long as family view is enabled, the main steam window isn't rendered on linux. That's why steam worked fine with other accounts. I disabled family view from the steam webpage and the client worked as expected again.
