I'm locked out of steam:
Are they picking on me or is this a new feature?
At what point does this happen Daniel?
Pops up as soon a I click the Steam icon or one of my desktop steam games. I can't reach steam itself at all. This came right out of the blue. One day All was well, next, nobody wants to know me.
In the past I've done a dozen fixes for this type of problem, but the easiest way is probably to uninstall and re-install.
I'm half way through my third go at Borderlands 2. Will steam make me start my games over when I re-install?
The worst part is that Steam should turn it's back on me after all I'e done for them! LOL
Awesome! My oldest daughter and I are playing through Borderlands 2 in Mint as well.
Well, if your game is syncing with Steam cloud then you won't lose your save. There is also a local save in your ~/.local/share directory too.
But if you don't want to risk it, then I will look up a solution for refreshing Steam.
Normally it will be something like "Delete this file and run Steam"
These posts suggest deleting your /home/daniel/.steam directory
If you are afraid to delete it, just rename it instead:
Rename to old and then reinstall? I'll try it, really nothing to lose at this point.
You don't have to re-install... just rename the .steam folder in your home and then launch Steam again.
It will repopulate the .steam folder and hopefully allow you to sign in.
seems to be working.
Yay! You go booman!!
Are you logged in now?
No, I apologize. Only us crickets here.
Crickets probably means he got it working, or he's asleep
