When i try to open steam, it shows up on the bottom right of the task bar, but the UI won’t open. Here is the terminal output:

I have tried the solutions from https://forum.endeavouros.com/t/steam-refusing-to-open/42069 https://forum.endeavouros.com/t/steam-wont-open/42382 and https://forum.endeavouros.com/t/steam-gui-wont-launch/42317
none of them have worked, except launching with the steam -vgui to use the legacy UI, but the friends list shows as disconnected, and i can’t connect to it.
I have managed to get it working sometimes after using steam --reset several times, but it is not consistent, and it doesn’t work after a reboot unless i do it again.
I see many people had an issue with xdg-desktop-portal-gnome, but i don’t have that installed. I do have xdg-desktop-portal-kde, but i assume i need it, because i am using KDE.
All my nvidia packages are up to date. Here is from pacman -Qs nvidia:
