Steam says I'm offline when I'm not.
I just downloaded steam after my pc reset and for some reason i can play online games but cant see my friends when i hold shift, and press tab. I can, for some reason, see all my friends that are online on steam when i go to friends but can't message them or ask join them. Anybody have this issue that has a solution?

Clear your web cache and re-start Steam.

Steam > Settings > Web Browser > Delete Web Browser Cache.

Report if anything has changed.

Note that if you're in -game

1) does shift-tab pull up the overlay properly
2) what part of the overlay does work? (browser? clikcing on links? friends stuff)

so friends says 0 is offline and the other stuff says i can click on it but does nothing when i do, doesnt open a new tab for me to inspect the news or anything.

ok so for anyone wondering on how I did it, since it's fixed, all i did was switch to new steam beta or something like that to do it all you need to do is ---> steam (top left corner) ---> account tab
---> beta participation, click change and choose steam beta update. Your welcome, if you need more help contact me!!

best solution I'd have is to run a game and shift + tab and then click on friends and see if it'll allow him to go online

i figured it out. when you have steam open up in the upper left hand corner go to the "friends" menu. mine had the check mark next to "offline" changed it to online and now it's back to normal

Mine is on offline. Except when I click to set it on online, it just stays on offline. Nothing happens. I've had heaps of trouble with steam on Linux, I can't get anywhere with it. At first it took days to get it to change library to one of my bigger mounted hard-drives. When I first got it over, then this offline bug happened. So I'm not able to even download the games I have x)

Man, I'm really enjoying Zorin 16. The only issue is this steam thing, all other game clients (or whatever they're called) works absolutely fine and I can just pick the hard-drive to use, install and play until my eyes bleed. Steam, not so much.

you got to reload the page after changing it. oh and not sure about moving library.. i would keep the library where it's at and start fresh with your linux steam library. i'm dual booting for this reason. using FerenOS ... i like Zorin too!

If I have the library in the main ssd. I will have to download a game, play. Then uninstall. So it's quite the inconvenience to have it there x) don't want to fill up my main ssd
