Cannot start Steam X-Plane any more

Hi all,

so, I have been happily playing X-Plane for a year now on my arch desktop. I hadn't started steam or x-plane for about a month when I tried it again a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately the game doesn't start at all right now, erroring out with a:

Whoah -- no matter how hard I tried, I failed to get a GLX visual. Something's seriously wonky on your machine.

message.
Now, other than pacman -Syu I haven't been fidling with this machine So I'm a bit clueless as to what has caused this. I tried removing and installing the radeon driver stack (mesa, xf86- stuff, vulkan packages) and event tried the two vulkan providers for amd (amdvlk and vulkan-radeon) but no dice.

Uninstalling plugins, the game or even steam had no effect. Any ideas on how I can debug this?

Re: Cannot start Steam X-Plane any more

That message suggest something is wrong with your OpenGL graphics setup .

please post xorg log as well as the output of

$ lspci -k
$ glxinfo -B   #comes with mesa-demos
$ glxinfo32 -B # comes with lib32-mesa-demos

Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

Re: Cannot start Steam X-Plane any more

Those look normal.

post xorg log and also the terminal output from starting x-plane .

Re: Cannot start Steam X-Plane any more

I'm on gnome on wayland, as far as I'm aware I don't have a resident x11 instance. Do I?

The terminal output from the steam startup really isn't much more than that.

ERROR: ld.so: object '/home/kiriakos/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/gameoverlayrenderer.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored.

Whoah -- no matter how hard I tried, I failed to get a GLX visual. Something's seriously wonky on your machine.
ERROR: ld.so: object '/home/kiriakos/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/gameoverlayrenderer.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored.

That's the whole thing... and the gameoverlayrenderer errors are OK according to the steam docs. (they also existed when the game was working)

Looking at the journalctl i get the following when trying to run the game:

Yes and no.
You proably do not have a standalone X instance , but wayland can start a X instance using xwayland .
check https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/GNOME#GNOME_Sessions

The GLX visual error message suggests x-plane expects to be run as an X application , but isn't .
The glxinfo output indicates xwayland is working correctly .

Try starting x-plane manually the same way you did glxinfo / glxinfo32 .
