Issues for enabling Steam games to run with the Solus runtime.
Mar 26 2021
By the way, the one I had was the 460.67, and before that I had the 390..141
yes, I just tried the terminal and found that my nvidia driver was causing the steam to crash. So after uninstalling my nvidia driver I was able to get steam to load again. I will have to look for a better driver option on my video card. any suggestions? Graphics Processor: GeForce GT 710/PCIe/SSE2
Do you get any interesting output when you launch steam from the terminal?
I have been installing every available update that has been made available to the software center for me to download, the most recent ones were yesterday evening.
Operating System: Solus 4.2
KDE Plasma Version: 5.21.3
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.80.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
OS Type: 64-bit
Graphics Platform: X11
Memory: 7.8 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: GeForce GT 710/PCIe/SSE2
When you say you installed the "mandatory security updates" do you mean you didn't install ALL available updates? If so, you should do that and then report if the issue persists.

Using -nostartupmovies -nomovies does actually make the game work. This is great, atleast I can play now.. Many thanks for this workaround.

I think installing the hidapi package fixed the issue for me, though I also installed the xboxdrv and hidapi-32bit packages too for good measure.

I am able to reproduce this using an 8bitdo SN30 Pro+ controller in xinput mode (emulates an xbox one controller). With "Use the intercept library" enabled, Steam does not recognize the controller (though I too can get input in other applications such as sc-controller), while with the option disabled Steam recognizes the controller as an xbox one controller. However, if I put the controller in switch-mode (emulates a nintendo switch controller), I do get Steam to recognize the controller with "Use the intercept library" enabled.

Yes I did close it completely and then made the changes. It is still not working, however flatpak version is there now. Want to have it working without flatpak. Please do let ne know if there is anything that can be done to fix it

I tried disabling it and I still have no luck,
I tried steam on flatpak, and the game launches fine there, No issues observed.. I can use it with Flatpak for some time, however I am 100% sure that the performance is not as good as it would be without Flatpak.

I tried disabling it and I still have no luck, I also disabled the Unity Games Workaround too., I do not have success. I get the below error.
: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
@osgyan I take it you have already tried different settings in "Linux Steam Integration"?
I am also unable to launch Borderlands 2. all other games work absolutely perfection. Any ideas on what could be the issue?

It seems to be working fine now (with native runtime and intercept library set to ON).

Is this still an issue?

So it's possibly the 32bit libsdl2 exemption causing the issue (which would need a new LSI to test), or requires incompatible bundled libs and needs to be exempted from libintercept.
Dec 13 2019
Yes, it works with native runtime (ON) and the intercept library (OFF).
Does it work in this configuration?

It didn't seem to make any difference, at least for me. I also tried to force the CFLAGS to just "-O2" and then "-O0", but it made no difference.
Lastly I tried building alsa-lib with clang and there seems to be no difference in starting Borderlands 2.
I honestly don't know if I am doing something wrong here (don't know how to run the backtraces for example)...
Good idea! @aleksvor. I will give it a shot today or tomorrow if I get some time over 👍
It's a blind guess, but I think we can try building alsa-lib without tree-vectorize too.
Dec 2 2019
I updated alsa-lib to version 220.127.116.11 (currently at 1.1.9 in the repo) and Borderlands 2 still won't start...
Yeah. Different audio setups might be the case...
Nov 30 2019
Are you still having issues with the games, @aleksvor?
I have a working patch to update openal-soft to the recently released update 1.20.0 that I will send up shortly, but testing borderlands before and after the update show the same issue for me. It just won't start :(

Borderlands 2 runs fine for me now, please re-open if you are having trouble still.
Closing due to lack of response in over 30 days.

OK, I've reinstalled the game on my main partition (it was before on another partition), and the minigames work.
As I said, I've had this issue for a long time, ever since I got the game (over half a year ago), so I've tried all the Proton version with it.

In this case. This is a windows only game, in which it makes use of the proton runtime. I'd check which proton version you're using within steam. And if none of those options work, make a report over at https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/issues
