Cannot start v1.2.7 - error loading libsteam_api.so

Post by wh123 » Sat Jun 29, 2019 7:16 pm

Tested on two different machines. Both with Ubuntu 19.04.

The game will not start.
When running the game binary from cli, this error message appears:
~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Warhammer 40000 Gladius - Relics of War/Binaries/Linux-x86_64/Gladius.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libsteam_api.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Other steam games work just fine.

The library file exists on disk, but in a different location:
~/.var/app/com.valvesoftware.Steam/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Warhammer 40000 Gladius - Relics of War/Binaries/libsteam_api.so
After copying that library file into the Binaries directory, and trying again, this error message appears:
./Gladius.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libsndio.so.6.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

That file is not missing; it is located in the Binaries directory.




When starting from the Steam menu (or starting binary Gladius (without the .bin extension)), the following error appears in ~/.steam/error.txt

Code: Select all
