XCOM 2 on Steam crashes at launch, missing shared libraries?

I have recently bought XCOM 2 on Steam. I am trying to launch it on my dual-booted KDE Dr460nized edition. The game should run natively, but it closes as soon as I launch it.
By running Steam from the console, I was able to find that the game closes itself because it couldn't find some shared libraries, such as "liblber-2.4.so.2". I'm not too sure what that means or how to fix it.

So far, I've tried to:

  • verify the game files.
  • update the system through update
  • run the game with "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./lib/x86_64/:../lib/x86_64/ %command% -allowconsole" as my launch options.
  • run the game with "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/anonyme/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/XCOM 2/lib/x86_64/ %command% -allowconsole" as launch options

openssl - XCOM2 on Fedora: Can't find libcrypto.so.1.0.0 - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange this post on stackexchange was the closest one I could find to my issue. I have included below the output of ldd ./XCOM2. I didn't understand the proposed solution too well, so I didn't follow it.

I didn't bother trying to run the game on proton, because it would mean downloading 11Gb of additional content and I figured that there must be a more efficient way.

Steam's console output when launching the game:

there are a bunch of .so.X files which are "not found".
liblber-2.4.so.2 (this is the one which appears in the output when I launch the game)
I'm guessing that I am supposed to install these? The issue is that I don't know how, or if I should even mess with them.

Sadly, there wasn't much more information I could gather on the issue.

Looks like the game on Arch Linux based distros (and some others) aren't working well on Native on the base game (without the War of the Chosen DLC) , so its not just you. Some reason I guess the version that uses that DLC doesn't have those issues. https://www.protondb.com/app/268500

From what I gather, if you don't want to get that DLC, you would be best trying Proton and looking at reports from my link if you have other issues. Also, people seem to have a better time with running it in general with either Proton 7 or Experimental.

Be sure to check out this report in particular. It might have a way for you to run the native version: https://www.protondb.com/app/268500#z8VLK0KPKw
The post recommends trying with this as a launch option:

Hello, thanks for the swift reply

DLC isn't an issue as my version did come with all DLC available, and they are all installed. I had no idea that it was relevant, though.
I do think, although unsure, that launching the game should open the 2K Launcher. Mine doesn't even try, sadly.

As for the launch options, I did try and it still won't launch. But it shouldn't relate to missing libraries, just to using the right graphics card for better performance. However, by looking a little bit more through the website that you linked, I was able to find this post, which does absolutely relate to my issue https://www.protondb.com/app/268500#H9jNvSKx99

I'll see if I can fix this, maybe I can install the missing library files from the core repositories like this report states. Maybe I'll have to bite the bullet and try to run the game on proton. Thanks for the help

libldap is available as a package and I already found it installed on my machine. The other 2 are not coming up in a package search for me, but I know liblber is related to libldap Is liblber part of openLDAP? What is it's purpose? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange

As for libgconf-2.so.4 RPM, there are plenty of libg related packages that should be already installed on Garuda by looking at my install and the package list on the KDE ISO. I am just guessing it doesn't know how to interact with those for some reason?



After a moment of searching, I found 2/3 of the solution

liblber-2.4.so.2 came from the lib32-libldap package, but apparently it doesn't include the dependency that I need since its 2.6 update, according to a comment from AUR (en) - crossover.
Instead, i found this package AUR (en) - libldap24, which I speculated was the 2.4 update of the same package. Whether it was or wasn't, I still don't know, but now steam cries out for a different library package, libgconf-2.so.4, which also wasn't found in the ldd ./XCOM 2 package before.

Now, ldd ./XCOM 2 DOES find liblber and libldap

liblber-2.4.so.2 => /usr/lib/liblber-2.4.so.2 (0x00007fa5ab7a4000...
libldap_r-2.4.so.2 => /usr/lib/libldap_r-2.4.so.2 (0x00007fa5a685...

So I think I just have to figure out where I can get myself libgconf-2.so.4, and I shouldn't get the "missing libraries" error

Oh man, it works!

I found the pkgfile libgconf-2.so.4 command through your link, and it gave me chaotic-aur/gconf, along with three other things. So i installed gconf through pacman -S gconf to see what happens
The launcher came up when I ran the game. And when I pressed play, I was never happier to see a game's title screen come up.

Thanks a lot. If I were there, I'd buy you a cookie. Maybe. :cookie:

Glad you got it working!

In these cases the Solution goes to the post providing the right suggestion, not to the relevant implementation. :wink:
Maybe that's the cookie :crazy_face:
PS: choose the right one of course. I didn't follow the topic...
