        Dont misunderstand, I have some original and some not

        the main reason is the time, the money and the being sure you will finish it

        I know itīs wrong, but i am honest and this is my point of view

          • I was mostly curios about waiting for Steam before buying games. Steam on Linux might or might not happen, the best way to convince Valve (and everyone else) is to continue buying native Linux titles.

            Keep supporting LGP and the indies.

            • In this thread a lot of people seem worried about Valve ending their linux efforts (if any) because of experiments with their product.

              Serious, if Valve wants to come to linux, their motivation will not change because of anything as trivial as experimenting with their products or code.

              • New update released today from Valve!
                This time all files were updated except libsteam.so, Good enough!
                This means the patches don't apply anymore, but i got it to work again, but it doesn't look any different and still no fonts unfortunately.
                However, this time i didn't need to skip checking the return value of InitGlobalInstance() like in the past, seems like they fixed the bugs in it or something. I simply changed all dlopen() calls in steamui.so to RTLD_LAZY instead of RTLD_NOW again.

                  Changes from original steamui.so: Changed all dlopen() calls in steamui.so to use RTLD_LAZY instead of RTLD_NOW.

                    • Steam on Linux

                      I record a short vide of the current status of steam, (i have auto login in run.sh).
                      Thanks to all the others that have provided patches to get it working so far.
