Fail to launch from Steam on Linux

Recommended Posts

Hello Dev. team,


I bought the game very recently and it fails to launch from the Steam interface. When launching from command line I have a "Steam is not running issue" while it is running and connected:

[... and other longer lines...]

Already some effort...

(All this after having resolved libcurl-gnutls.so and *crypt*.so issues)


I know I don't have Windows but MS is not everything...

I just discovered an important thing: it fails with Steam beta only. If switching back to Steam "normal", the game is launching...

(This is still an issue if you need beta for some other game but serves as workaround probably for many of us).
