Cannot start steam after updating to driver 465

Steam doesn’t start after installing nvidia-driver-465. It works with nvidia-driver-460, however.

I would like to add that I tested a game outside steam and it works normally.

Looks like the graphics drivers ppa dropped the 32bit compat libs needed by steam. Those driver packages are not maintained by nvidia but the ubuntu graphics driver team, you should create a bug report with them.

I have the same problem. We should report it to PPA maintainers
