At this week's meeting, Paul and Ryan asked me to work on a short article
about the gaming platform Steam as you can now install it as a Flatpak
app using Flathub <http://flathub.org>
I've hit a couple of problems. BTW I understand this isn't Stack Overflow
and my rookie mistakes might be a little frustrating!
Anyway, after I'd set up Flatpak/Flathub, I installed Steam using Gnome
Software (which appears to be recommended). However, I couldn't run Steam
after installation because I was missing some drivers (see screenshot).
When I couldn't find the drivers on the internet, I uninstalled Steam and
used these instructions
Steam the normal way to check if it worked. That was fine and, ironically,
told me how to fix my driver problem at the same time.
The problem I have now is that I can't install Steam at all using Gnome
Software. The install button disappears after I click it, only to reappear
a few moments later, and the download % bar doesn't appear at all. It works
fine when I install Steam with Flathub at the command line, though.
What I need is someone to check that they can install and run Steam using
Flathub and Gnome Software. I then could write the article once I know it
works, but, to be fair, I'd feel a bit of douche writing something knowing
I couldn't get it to work properly myself!
Apologies for the hassles,
