Tried random things from different forums, nothing helped. Reinstalled mesa drivers, reinstalled steam, nothing helped

EDIT: Apparently I casually upgraded my distro from "jessie" to "stretch" and it broke symlinks. Vadim's solution works

Try updating your GPU drivers or maybe there is no linux driver support for your GPU?

Probably you run debian 9.0 "stretch" witnh mesa 12.
In such case you should create following symlinks:
rm /home/k/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgpg-error.so.0 ln -s /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgpg-error.so.0 /home/k/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgpg-error.so.0 rm /home/k/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6 ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6 /home/k/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6

Whoa! Indeed, I run 'testing' version on all sources, it worked! Hope it will not be a problem in the future! Thanks! :)

Hi, got similar problem in Debian stretch (debian 9), and the solution is a bit different :

rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgpg-error.so.0 ln -s /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgpg-error.so.0 ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgpg-error.so.0 rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6 ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6 ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6

Hope it helps someone else !

Im using Devuan with ascii branch. It is equivalent to Debian Testing Branch.

only replacing the i386 and amd64 files worked for me:

i386

I don't remember about jessie, but stretch creates by default two entries in grub.cfg for any installed kernel - to use systemd and to load with old good sysvinit. I also used to use Devuan, but dropped since debian started to support systemd-free init again.

I'm here again because right now I dropped Devuan too, but in favor of Void Linux.

Im with problems to load steam, and looking here to see if I can put it to functioning..

Edit:

More easy than I thought. I tried install and then copy all my files to the new system. This make the installation go in problems. Just reinstall and all go ok!
Now only need to put the right folders...

In Debian Stretch First I installed Steam and after that I updated my GPU drivers for Nvidia. Try back to Nouvea drivers, install Steam and then upgrade your GPU drivers.
But Steam have a bug in Debian Stretch. Icon on the system tray is inactive.
