However sometimes I will exit the game as normal and then when I go to click on the steam icont it switches to the "A" icon and the only fix i have found is to reinstall steam on the macbook.
I have been able to fix this until it happens another time by going to your "Applications" folder and locating Steam and then moving Steam to the desktop, then move Steam back to the "Applications" folder and launch Steam (this fixes the error and the missing icon and should fix everything until it happens another time).
Hope this helps :)
P.S Also the finder will ask some question about whether you want to keep the files (I don't remember the exact wording of the alert but just click leave files), then it should be fixed.
Had it happen again today and this fix worked beautifully! Thanks mouseme!
Still hoping for an official fix, as I'm clearly not the only one affected by this.
So did you get Steam working again?
This forces the client to update and fix itself.
Now the library shows no games available to stream. Host PC is on and I've tried various restarts, changes of settings for streaming on both client and host, reinstall on both, all with no success. The problem now is the same as here:
I've posted on that thread but thought I might as well ask here in case it's in any way related this issue as I had that straight before. Probably still would tbh if I could actually manage to run a game first!
Any advice would be appreciated! Cheers
If that doesn't fix it, you can at least Option-drag it to another folder, then drag it back and confirm overwrite.
As for your games being missing, you should be able to manually install them one by one and they will hopefully be detected from your existing install folder, unless you completely trashed everything.
1. Click steam.dmg and drag it again to applications.
2. Find steam in the applications.
3. Click the steam icon.
4. Wait for download and done!
I hope this works.
This fixed it for me.
Thanks for the above hints for fixing this issue, they are the only ones that I could find on the Internet ....
Annoying the issue is still persisting though.
