I do believe that current path is steamapps not SteamApps

No Friends List/No Store Loading

In order to resolve this, run steam with "GSETTINGS_BACKEND=memory steam" or edit the desktop file with the "env GSETTINGS_BACKEND=memory steam %U" in the Exec= section.

Vulkan support in Mesa for Windows games?

Talk status
This discussion is done.

After installing games-util/steam-launcher and games-util/steam-client-meta from anyc's steam-overlay, Windows games (or rather the wine install bundled with the Proton Steam client) would still not launch until I compiled in Vulkan support to Mesa as per this wiki page. If there is no objection I'll add a troubleshooting item here for those tyring to get Windows games running, since it is arguable that people looking for assistance might consider it a client or game issue.--Diem (talk) 23:02, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

Following Maffblaster's comment on the Steam talk page, I have added this troubleshooting item--Diem (talk) 17:19, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
