I decided to install Steam using PlayonLinux.  I can't seem to get the store to show up.  I have it installed but still no store.  I looked up in winehq and found an article saying to disable CEF, saying this: Simply start Steam.exe with the -no-cef-sandbox argument.  So I went into PlayonLinux and added that to the arguments line.  Still no store.  PlayonLinux is setup to use wine 2.12-staging.  I have wine installed on my Ubuntu with their default 1.6 and have upgraded to wine stable 3.0, same results.

Any ideas?

The argument -no-cef-sandbox is exactly what you need, but it only works when Wine Configuration is set to Windows XP

Give that a try and let me know if it still doesn't work.

It was set for XP.  I tried the -no-cef-sandbox and everything else I could find.  I then changed it to Windows 7 and tried other things.  I just reverted back to XP and now it's working.  I don't understand.  Oh well, it's working now.  Thanks.

Yeah, it does that to me as well.  Glad you got it working now.
