Issue Report: Segmentation fault on login
Cant seem to get Steam to work. Tried on a fresh install of Mint, and Ubuntu (Both newest versions, 64 bit)

On my first launch after installing, I will get the error when trying to open my friends list. Any subsequent launches just result in me segfaulting immediately after I login.

Also, when I was actually able to use the program, there was no tray icon. (using cinnamon)

My specs are:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz
7935 MiB DDR3 RAM
AMD HD7870 GPU

I am using the newest version of fglrx-amdccle - straight from apt-get.

Here's what usually comes out when I run steam from the terminal-
steam

Steam worked for me earlier, but I just installed the latest updates for Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit, including a kernel update, and Steam updated itself after the previous run, and I have a segfault at the same line. The "Connecting to Steam" window shows up, and then it crashes after a bit.
Output in the terminal when I run steam.

I'm not sure if this is the same issue, but it's segfaulting on the same line.

Same issue as you guys - segfault - same line:

Found a solution that works for me here ( https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/250 )

sudo apt-get purge fglrx fglrx-amdcccle
sudo update-alternatives --remove-all x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx
