Steam searches for libasound_module_pcm_pulse.so at the wrong location #1199
I am using Pulseaudio with my Xonar DG (The only way to get volume control working) and Steam looks for the libsound_module_pcm_pulse.so at the wrong location.
OS: Arch Linux x86_64

The permission denied message usually means the machine ID wasn't detected properly.
