The program 'steam' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)'.
(Details: serial 33 error_code 1 request_code 136 minor_code 19)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Hit me up if you solved it. Im trying for days now

Same problem after update today. We can only wait for a fix, I think.

You don't need to keep doing fresh installs - that's a supported platform so it's probably something else. the X-window problems hint it is very likely graphics related. Check you are using the proprietary driver.

I'm getting something similar now, although mine is due to installing web drivers as opposed to 'Additional Drivers' in Ubuntu, although I need to do web ones because I have a bug if I don't.

Looks like steam didn't shutdown cleanly, scheduling immediate update check
