    Steam crash after login

    I'm a bit new into this, but anyway...

    I have Ubuntu 18.04 64-bits, on a "cheap" computer, it's not the best but it's something, the hardware info is (or i think it is):

    The problem is that, when i start steam and log-in it just crashes. and this is what it says when launched by terminal:

    Running Steam on ubuntu 18.04 64-bit
    STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
    Pins up-to-date!

    Looks like steam didn't shutdown cleanly, scheduling immediate update check

    Re: Steam crash after login

    Did you download from the Steam webpage?

    If you did, remove the current installation of Steam. Scroll down for the Linux instructions: https://www.wikihow.com/Uninstall-Steam

    If you did install from the repos, look here: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/ste...ux/issues/5463

    Code:
    sudo apt install steam
    This pulls in a raft of dependencies, so it should run fine & dandy.
