Steam updating error unable to open
Disabling the in-game Steam Overlay in the game properties might help.
And finally, if those don't work, you should check Steam's output for any error from the game.
This means you do not have to run Steam from the command-line to see that output.
It is possible to debug Steam to gain more information which could be useful to find out why something does not work.
If you do not have audio in the videos which play within the Steam client, it is possible that the ALSA libraries packaged with Steam are not working.
Attempting to playback a video within the steam client results in an error similar to: The FMOD audio middleware package is a bit buggy, and as a result games using it may have sound problems.
Games that explicitly depend on ALSA can break Pulse Audio.Since the new Steam Friends UI update, it may be the case that in the right-click menu the entries for "Join Game", "Invite to Game" and "View Game Info" are missing.In order to fix this, it maybe be necessary to install . If you mix the Steam runtime libraries with system libraries you will run into binary incompatibility issues, see steam-for-linux issue #4768.Binary incompatibility can lead to the Steam client and games not starting (manifesting as a crash, as hanging or silently returning), audio issues and various other problems.
