[BUG] Steam unable to launch after going offline
Hi,

This evening I put Steam into offline mode as a network policy at work prevented the server connection. I shut my machine down after playing Solar 2 and went home.

Now I'm home, I tried to start Steam and I can't. I get the error "Fatal Error: Steam needs to be online to update but was set to offline mode." The Steam UI never opens so I can't take it out of offline mode. I'm on the latest version 9updated today). I appear to be stuffed.

Any ideas please?

Thanks,
Paul.

Hi,

Thank you. That fixed it. I also deleted the ~/.steam/steam.pid file, just to make sure.

I'm back running again.

Bests,
Paul.

The file is located at (~ is shorthand for your home folder):

~/.steam/registry.vdf

The steam folder is hidden, so you'll need to enable the viewing of hidden files and folders within your file browser options. Alternatively you can open a terminal window and type:

gedit ~/.steam/registry.vdf

(You may need to replace 'gedit' with the name of the text editor you have installed.)

Hi, my steam can't restore connection after going offline. I can't find "Offline" option in my registry.vdf, but it also has "AlreadyRetriedOfflineMode" and its value "0". What can I do to fix this bug?
