Steam will no longer install

I deleted my bottle and reinstalled cxgames and steam and now it no longer works. Even after a complete removal of cxgames. My only guess is that something is still left behind. Anyone else experience this or know how to completely remove steam (and I mean really completely, running /opt/cxgames/bin/cxuninstall does not fix the problem)?

The files that you must remove are:
the application itself (Crossover Games),
/users/<your user name>/Applications/Crossover Games
/users/<your user name>/Library/Application Support/Crossover Games
/user/<your user name>/Library/Preferences/com.codeweavers.CrossoverGames.plist and any variations of the above name.

Deleting these will completely remove all trace of Crossover Games from your computer. When you install steam make sure that you do it from the supported application menu, by choosing install steam via download within the application Crossover Games. It is a common mistake to try and download a steam installer on your own, and install it that way. Another thing is to make absolutely sure that you are using Crossover Games, and that the icon has bullet holes in it (i.e. Not Crossover Pro).

I hope that is helpful to you, if it still doesn't work after trying that we can do some more troubleshooting, and make sure that we get this working for you.

Samuel, those instructions are for the Mac, and I gather that Dav is running Linux.

Dav, you can remove ~/.cxgames to delete all of your bottles.

Note that Steam has been updated with a new version. That new version doesn't really work with CrossOver Games 8.x. We have made CrossOver Games 9 Beta available for download from the Unsupported Downloads section of your My Downloads page.

See here.

Thanks Ken, I didn't notice he was using Linux.
