all valve games launch black screen/no sound, non-valve do not launch at all
Problem started a week ago. Fixed by removing the entire steam folder and allowing to re-download. Problem has since resumed, cannot launch any games, even after deleting the steam folder. Konsole output as follows:

a quick update would confirm this is related to the steam in-game overlay. Disabling via "enable community in-game" does allow games to launch again. Would appreciate some feedback from some of the testers or devs on the issue.

Thanks! This was the exact same problem I was having and disabling the in-game option fixed it for me too.
