Where can I find and delete clientregistry.blob on Ubuntu?
The title says it all. Help me please :(

I've got a 'Fatal error: steam failed to load: *steamstartengine(0xffcf8270) failed with error 1: cmultifieldblob(pserialized): fieldid defined twice', and as I googled everyone says that you must delete clientregistry.blob to fix this.

'bash: cd: /.local/share/Steam/: No such file or directory'

It says the same thing when I try to enter /.local/ folder.

Did that solve your initial problem?
If you don't like using the terminal, you can just go there in your file browser. Ctr+H toggles whether or not to show hidden files or directories (files/directories that start with a period are hidden)

So, what do you actually type?

Just open File Manager (Nautilus if you are on Ubuntu) press ctrl+h to reveal hidden files and look for folder called ".steam", inside you'll find another "steam" folder and there you go, you are inside Steam directory, you can delete ClientRegistry.blob.

Or

Open Terminal (it's in Applications) and type:
rm ~/.steam/steam/ClientRegistry.blob
You can paste it into terminal with ctrl+shift+v or from right click menu.

How do you accurately delete it?
