Arch install of steam

I’ve tried steam native and runtime and both do not work properly on arch. Can’t download properly from steam as they don’t support it.

I’m not familiar with archlinux (cannot try), but besides enabling Multilib repo (+ sudo pacman -Syu) and afterwards installing steam might be there is need for LibGL:

  • Intel 32bit: sudo pacman -Syu xf86-video-intel mesa-libgl
  • Intel 64bit: sudo pacman -Syu xf86-video-intel lib32-mesa-libgl
  • AMD open source | proprietary
  • Nvidia open source | proprietary


Maybe try starting it from your terminal and seeing if there’s any useful error messages?

Multilib was already enabled but installed libgl and 390 drivers instead and it worked. Thanks.
