How did you install steam?

Downloaded the launcher from Ubuntu Software and then opened terminal and typed “steam”

Clicking “Steam” icon in Apps results in same issue

run dpkg --get-selections | grep font

Paste the output here.

Also is your system up to date?

I ran sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade

Straight after installing Ubuntu

Well it was the very start of my Linux install so I just re-installed again and this time it is fine and Steam is running.

Maybe because I installed the newest kernel before installing Steam?

So I don’t have to open another thread.
I have an AMD R9 290 and I was wondering if the correct drivers install by themselves? Or shall I update the kernel?
