Can't Run Steam with Box64 on Pi4 (Ubuntu)

Wed Jul 28, 2021 9:03 pm

I can't run Steam with box64 on my Pi4 with Ubuntu Desktop installed. Has anyone successfully installed Steam on a Pi4 with 64-bit Ubuntu and box64? If you have, could you let me know how? :?:
Because when I run

Code: Select all

steam
in the terminal it says I need some packages, but I can't install them because they're either amd64 or i386. Is there a way I can install x86 packages on ARM?
An RPi can be a gaming PC. As long as you have the right packages and software anyway.
Using a RPi4 8GB with Ubuntu Desktop 21.04, main interests are gaming and programming. Also occasionally uses two RPi3B+ and a RPi3B.

As per your other post, the developers have a Discourse Support Channel linked on their website:

Take what I advise as advice not the utopian holy grail, and it is gratis !!

I don't have a Discourse account is the problem with that.

I found what I was doing wrong and got Steam to launch. But errors come up and I can't actually boot the app yet, just update it.
