I have following issue when i am trying launch steam from terminal. I tried launch steam from desktop launcher, but it's not working.

"Repairing installation, linking /home/eolsori/.steam/steam to /home/eolsori/.local/share/Steam Running Steam on fedora 27 64-bit STEAMRUNTIME is enabled automatically Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0) /home/eolsori/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 713: 31319 Segmentation fault (core dumped) $STEAMDEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$STEAMEXEPATH" "$@" /home/eolsori/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 444: no match: ssfn* "

I downloaded Nvidia 384.92 driver from Nvidia.com and succesfully installed it with using this tutorial: https://www.if-not-true-then-false.co...

then i used this tutorial for add native screen resolution. ( now i have normal screen resolution ) http://zyxon.github.io/getting-a-moni...

then i install RPMfusion packages from this command: sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/... -E %fedora).noarch.rpm https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr... -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

then i installed steam from terminal ( sudo dnf install steam ) but i can't launch it.

what can i do?

Why? I have launch problem only on fedora. I tested steam on Ubuntu and many other debian based distro and it's working without any problem.

Fedora 27, Nvidia 970 with proprietary 387.34, 16Gig ram, AMD fx-6350 six core, Run Wine and Steam with no issues. What repository did you use to get steam?

And then ran steam and it worked fine.
