I ran the script file in the .steam folder and got a little more debug output:

Cuda is essential to many. So until a fix, steam is unusable forever to us.

Tired of trying out all these nvidia fixing things, I choose to use the flatpak version steam.

$ sudo apt install flatpak
$ sudo flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
$ sudo flatpak install flathub com.valvesoftware.Steam
$ flatpak run com.valvesoftware.Steam

Everything done in 15 mins, easy and smooth.

Hello @omen23, this is an nVidia driver issue which is being tracked at #5778. The CUDA .deb driver package provided by nVidia does not have 32 bit userspace support. If it is available to you, add the libnvidia-gl-418:i386 package, which may involve adding the Proprietary GPU Drivers PPA.

Closing as a duplicate of #5778.

I rather use a working cuda 10 with 418.67 .. and wait for valve to fix this .. i mean come on bros ...

sudo apt install libnvidia-gl-418:i386

any way of installing it without breaking my CUDA 10 + 418.67 installation?
