    Thank you, you've been really helpful!
    My pleasure i'm sure there might have been a better solution, it's just a workaround that i could actually imagine
    I hope steam doesn't update and overwrite that file without fixing the issue as well, otherwise we might end up having to input that command in again, but it's not the end of the world, really.

    To others reading this who are also suffering the same problem but for whom my post doesn't help, make sure you have the appropriate 32bit libraries necessary to run steam in the first place, otherwise you won't be able to do this!

      Assuming you have your path set right, you can just rename/delete that file, and steam will automagically use the one from.
      I've also had to rename libstdc++.so.6 found in ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/ because of LLVM 3.5.

      I'm still getting the "driver does not expose __driDriverGetExtensions_nouveau()" problem as before, but at least Steam now doesn't complain about the display.

      @curaga Thanks!

              Yup, it's a problem with Steam's runtime. Check these bug reports:

              https://github.com/ValveSoftware/ste...ux/issues/3273
              https://github.com/ValveSoftware/ste...ux/issues/3280
              https://github.com/ValveSoftware/ste...time/issues/13

              They are shipping with old versions of those two libraries (libstdc++ and libgcc_s).

              • Hi guys. Long time I was searching for a solution to launch Dota2 with good fps on Ubuntu.I found this. That guy somehow made it working. I also tried to install drivers from this PPA, but it didn't help.
                My PC is:
                Phenom X6 1100T
                Radeon HD7770 Power Edition
                8 Gb RAM
                Ubuntu 14.04 x64

                Btw my videocard has 1 strange point: when drivers are not installed , it's cooler works on 100% power, that makes noise. When I used proprietary AMD's driver, there wasn't such issue and cooler was quiet.
                With this drivers it works on 100% and I think something didn't setup completely... And also with this drivers Steam gives me OpenGL error when I launch it.

                Can you please help me to do everything right? I can install clean Ubuntu and start over. Are there any advanced instructions how to install everything?

                  I had this happen with my R7850 from MSI. My card has some dust removal technology, which spins the fans in 100% reverse at boot, and then spins normally once the driver loads. If the OS doesn't have proper drivers installed, then the fans continue to run 100% in reverse.

                  I don't know if I ever had it fixed with the open-source driver, but MSI gave me a VBIOS with that behavior removed.

                  • I also have my HD7770 from MSI. I asked their support about this problem but they said that they can't do anything

                      I have the same problem with a R9 270. Here's some background information:
                      https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73338

                      I guess we'll have to wait for a kernel update? Or maybe enabling dpm in the boot-config helps for you - it didn't make a change for my card though.
                      You could also try some of the new kernels; maybe they work better for your card (I don't believe it but it's probably worth a try). I testet my system up to 3.15 rc3 without a change in fan speed.

                      So I switched back to fxglr 14.4 which is way more silent and works with all the games but has horrible 2d-performance and some graphics glitches.

                      The driver situation for "modern" ATI cards (some of them several years old) is very very unsatisfactory at the moment. My personal solution: I'll sell my card as soon as I lose my patience and buy one from nvidia.
