CSGO not running on my Arch

Today I installed steam and CSGO and whenever I try to run CSGO on arch it just opens a blank open GL window and then crashes. I don't know why. Can anyone help me to fix this problem?

No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

I read the steam arcticle on archwiki but I don't know in which folder steam stores log file so that I can show it to you.

Run steam in a terminal, post the output you get.

Re: CSGO not running on my Arch

https://github.com/ValveSoftware/csgo-o … ssues/2815 looks relevant

the library they mention libtcmalloc_minimal.so comes from gperftools .

$ pkgfile libtcmalloc_minimal.so
extra/gperftools
$ 

Is that installed on your system ?
If yes, you may also need lib32-gperftools from AUR .


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

Sorry for the late reply.
I searched for "gperftools" and initially it was not installed in my system so I did

 sudo pacman -S gperftools
yay -S lib32-gperftools
[rounak@archissexy ~]$ pacman -Q gperftools
gperftools 2.9.1-1
[rounak@archissexy ~]$ yay -Q lib32-gperftools
lib32-gperftools 2.9.1-1
[rounak@archissexy ~]$ 

Then I tried to run csgo but nothing happened it opens a blank opengl window and then crashes.

Hmmm looks like people are having the same problem if u go to youtube and search " linus tech tips linux gaming challenge " they were having the same problem.
Here is the link to the video - https://invidious-us.kavin.rocks/watch?v=3E8IGy6I9Wo .

Re: CSGO not running on my Arch

@asta I already made a issue on it in github - https://github.com/ValveSoftware/csgo-o … ssues/2998
I think u are having the same issue.
There is a temporary workaround I found which should work for you -

1. I go to " /home/rounak/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/csgo/panorama/ " folder
If thats not where your csgo is located then find the path to your csgo/panorama folder
2. Rename the videos folder to "videos.bak"
3. Right click on csgo in your steam library and set the launch options to "-novid" without any inverted commas.

It worked for me.
If it still doesn't work install the steam from Flatpak and then install csgo and then run it. Flatpak one is working.
