Steam Runtime launches Steam Native

Steam Runtime launches Steam Native,

I've tried finding the solution online but the only thing i found is from this link [Solved] Steam-Runtime launches as Steam-Native / Newbie Corner / Arch Linux Forums, and the solution was to downgrade freetype library but I don't know if that's the case with my problem...

Also i found somewhere else that it is possible that Steam Runtime is actually launched but it is not labeled properly and if that's the case how to check that?

I have never intentionally wanted the runtime, only native, are you sure that's what you want? :confused:

Please provide the output of steam-native and steam-runtime as you did with garuda-inxi.

As I understood from reading forums and arch wiki documentation, Steam-runtime should be preferred way of launching Steam, or did I misunderstood something? :thinking:

My interpretation was that native is always preferred where it is possible to use. Native almost always gives higher performance, because it uses the system's installed libraries, whereas runtime uses pre-packaged Ubuntu ones. You get compatibility almost everywhere with runtime, at the cost of speed.

Take a look at their readme here: GitHub - ValveSoftware/steam-runtime: A runtime environment for Steam applications

I'm not seeing any obvious critical issue with the launch logs you provided.

OK, thanks again for the info!!!

I guess you are right. Then it must be that my taskbar and latte dock are labeling the name wrong which is Steam(Native) whether I run Runtime or Native steam?

Yeah that is most likely it. Seems to work fine from the logs you provided.
