nvidia drivers v310.32 on ubuntu
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 x64, I have Geforce 580 GTX.
Drivers were installed nvidia-current - all worked fine, but the game slowed down and offered to upgrade the video driver. Available from the repository drivers nvidia-experemental-304 and nvidia-experemental-310 (310.14) are not compatible with my graphics card (X-server will not start.) I downloaded from the site of nvidia driver 310.32 for my system and he got well, but does not run steam and games.
Now when I run steam, it show this error: "You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:"
how can I solve this problem?

hello, if you are using ubuntu 12.10 you need to install linux-source and linux-headers from the software center and only then you can install the nvidia drivers,
however if you upgrade to ubuntu 13.04 you will not have this issue so you can install nvidia drivers without any addicional steps. keep in mind tho ubuntu 13.04 is a alpha and does have bugs, i been using has my main OS and its stable enough for me tho.

OP, ensure you have libgl1-mesa-glx installed.

That might not be the only thing missing though. So, if your system generates another error, please post it.

This seem to happen on every 64bits OS. Full bug report here:


sudo gedit /etc/

Add next two lines to file:


Then execute:

sudo ldconfig

Now you should be able to run Steam

I had the same issue. I'm running Mint 14 Cinnamon. What I did was re-install the libgl1-mesa:386 package in Synaptic and voila!

Hey if you still have this problem never use the ubuntu software centre it has problems downloading copyrighted or not in the ubuntu repo dependises, also in 12.10 the ubuntu modified kernel broke support for alot of graphics cards with no fix from ubuntu. I had to leave 12.10 for this problem, also steam is based so far on 12.04. The nvdia 3.10 did not work for me under 12.10 sadly but, I would try what somepeople found working useing the ppa on this site over trying for the official methoed Edit you also must like noted above install the linux and headers becasue 12.10 for some reason doesin't use them or install them by default

Thank you so much for the fix. After re-installing the mesa packages steam works fine. I was having the same error after updating my graphics drivers.
