    Curiosity got the best of me and I hit this gem.

    Just getting Steam to run on 64-bit Ubuntu is frustrating, and when you just resolved all the library conflicts, your work gets undone by the next Steam update.

    Well that the good thing about sticking to the LTS.

    What in the actual fuck, Canonical?! How do you manage to break Steam on each and every iteration?

    I don’t think it’s Canonical, I think it’s a repo/ppa they have installed. Out the box 14.10 had no issues installing steam. I bet if we did the same with 15.04 it would also work out the box.

    Seriously. What was Canonical thinking using newer versions of libraries in the new version of their OS?

    So you’re defending their ineptitude in testing their, perhaps, most popular package for the average user? Or are you saying “Fuck VALVe’s moneymaker! Who the hell plays games on Ubuntu, anyway”?

    Steam is not part of Ubuntu’s repos in any way. It comes direct from Valve. If you look at the supported platforms for Steam, you’ll notice that only 12.04 and 12.10 are officially supported. To me, that sounds like Valve needs to crawl out from under their piles of money and update their packages to support the versions of their chosen platform that people are actually using these days. Blaming Canonical for actually updating their libstdc++ makes no sense.

    I’m just saying that Canonical isn’t obligated to hold themselves back to ancient versions of libraries just to ensure that 3rd party PROPRIETARY DRM software never breaks.

    You what now? https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/application … -launcher/

    Valve keeps the runtime packages in-line with the latest LTS (aka the most used) version. But that one is on me! I know that Canonical doesn’t care if they break compatibility between LTS and non-LTS versions of Ubuntu. Nor do they have to.

    Literally all they’d have to do, is to adjust the runtime from the get go on their package. That’s it! Negativo17 did it for Fedora’s Steam rpm and that one isn’t even on Fedora’s repos!

    But I will agree that VALVe should at least account for libgcc and libstdc++ being higher on the host than their client, especially for people using the Open-Sauce drivers. I complained about this too when I was still on the Calculator.

    Liam Dawe using one of our arguments? Next thing you’ll know, he’ll be calling game devs incompetent!
