Steam not starting

Description

So, I have a problem with Steam not starting from the start-menu. From the terminal I get the following error:

I have also solved the problem, as it seems to be a problem with me using en_DK.utf-8 as my locale. Steam runs just fine if I run steam with

LC_ALL=C steam

from the terminal. I have no experience with Linux development or bug-reporting, is this a Steam problem or a Solus-project problem? I hope this helps to fix the problem!

Oh, hey, it's the same error I've encountered before, I even made a task T759 for this.

I thought it was fixed because after reinstalling Solus (used Antergos for a while) it worked fine for me. Maybe you should try to reinstall the system as well?

I have the same problem on two different computers, both fixed by said solution. I'm running en_DK.utf-8 on both. Both systems are even cleanly installed yesterday, so they are as up to date as can be.
