Ubuntu: Steam error “No such file or directory” for 17.04


When I run command steam in the terminal it gives me this error.

$ steam  tar: This does not look like a tar archive  xz: (stdin): File format not recognized  tar: Child returned status 1  tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now  find: ‘/home/jacob/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime’: No such file or directory  

and when I click on the icon it tries to open for a few seconds and then goes away.


Simply open terminal and type:

mkdir /home/$USER/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime  

This creates the missing directory, it worked for me when I had exactly the same error in 17.04.
