Ubuntu – steam fatal error “steam needs to be online to update, but was set to offline movies.”


I tried re-installing it but it simply keeps giving me this error in a little window. When I close it, an identical error pops up some 3 seconds later without any new provocation.

Best Answer

Make sure steam isn't running at all in ~/.steam/.

  1. Delete ~/.steam/steam.pid

  2. Edit ~/.steam/registry.vdf line 29 from "Offline" "1" to "Offline" "0"
