Bought Rust a week ago. Still cannot play on Linux

Hi there,

i know this is Early Access and Beta. And I don’t mind bugs in this stage of development. But I would be happy to run the game I bought a week ago at least once! Running on Linux Mint 15 (same as Ubuntu 13.10) the game somehow gets the directory for the libirust-directory wrong and exists with an error:

Fallback handler could not load library /home/comrad/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/rust/rust_Data/Mono/x86_64/.//home/comrad/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/rust/rust_Data/Plugins/x86/

is there some environmental variable that has to be set to something (xdg…stuff?)?


I thought this was fixed in the most recent update, Might be a stupid question but I assume you’re all up to date, right?

Thanks for your reply. I’ve updated on steam. Tried the normal and the dev-channel. Removed and uninstalled and reinstalled twice now.

I had a similar missing libs issue.
The slightly dirty and possibly unrelated way I got it running on Linux (ubuntu 64bit, AMD 5450 gfx card I think, it’s an old one) was installing steam in wine, adding a steam app folder that pointed at my existing linux install.
Ran the game under wine (had to update) and then dropped back out and restarted the native linux version.
Switched on beta participation and it started working (gui was a little messed up but playable), one of the updates caused it to fail again so switched off beta participation, (updated again) and it’s been fine since.

thats probably new installs then?

might be some files are missing on new installs?

cause i dont have any issues like that. but my game is installed long time ago… just getting updates

verifying your local content might be good idea

Thanks for all your answers. I’ve verify the local content several times. But good news, everyone. The latest update fixed the issue for me. It works now. Thanks!

I have an other problem with my installation

Try to add the path in /etc/ and then run the ldconfig command.
Or you could also set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable. Looks like you guys both have basically the same problem. The issue doesn’t exist for me on my Ubuntu 13.10 install but I suspect this is probably related to 64bit vs 32bit somehow

Hi luizrocha13,
I had the same problem on my Ubuntu 13.10 64 bits. Seems like Steam is mixing 32 bits game library with 64 bits system libraries.
I solved the problem with the following two steps:
1 - Disable Steam Community In-Game
2 - Set game launch options as follow: “LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. %command%” (no quotes)
