Finally, I can run Steam on Ubuntu 18.04

I was struggling to run Steam on my Ubuntu 18.04. The Steam installation went very well and no sign of any errors. But every time I tried to run Steam, nothing happened. When I use Terminal to run it, I got some lines of errors such as:

Repairing installation, linking /home/alquimista/.steam/steam to /home/alquimista/.local/share/Steam
Running Steam on manjarolinux 17.0 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0)
/home/alquimista/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib32/ undefined symbol: xcb_send_request_with_fds
/home/alquimista/.local/share/Steam/ linha 444: sem correspondĂȘncia: ssfn*

Well, that’s no good at all. I was expecting a smooth installation process but in fact, I got those errors. 

How to Fix it?

Now I can smile because, with a single command, those errors were fixed. And now, I can run my Steam on Ubuntu 18.04 smoothly. If you encounter the same error after you install Steam, use this command to fix it.


That’s all. The command will do the magic.
