[Hyprland] Steam crashing

I recently reinstalled and am having major issues with Steam on Hyprland. I installed on a Plasma base and Steam is fine on Plasma, but crashes in hyprland.

Using Half-Life2 as the test game, and as I said earlier, it is running fine on Plasma wayland.

The error reported (lots of people saying it is a ‘red herring’);

hl2_linux: xcb_io.c:626: _XAllocID: Assertion `ret != inval_id' failed.
ERROR: ld.so: object '/home/xircon/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_64/gameoverlayrenderer.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64): ignored.

When it crashes, it stops a lot of programs opening (e.g. vivaldi), needing a reboot to get them to work.

Any ideas?

I dont have any solution to your problem but i also had problems with steam and after enabling flatpak and installing it from there i had 0 problems after all. So maybe you could consider switching to the flatpak version.

Im also using hyprland.

Your success sounds like a solution to me :disguised_face:

Oooh this is frustrating! Had high hopes this would work, but half-life2 crashes with exactly the same error message, yet runs fine on Plasma6.

:edit: Flatpak & Native run fine on Plasma6.

I reboot into the iGPU (this is a Lenovo Legion 5 AMD/RTX), exactly the same issue, so it is not GPU dependant.
