Wow. Wired is so much worse than I remember!
Which article in particular is it? Can you provide a link?
Private Server will not start at all, either from desktop launcher or through Steam
Starting the Private Server hangs when the backend module loads, never proceeding past it. It seems to think that Steam is not running, but it is.
Excerpt from backend.log:
Loading mods in 'mods'
Connecting to storage
Starting CLI server
Connecting to local Steam client failed: Steam is not running
Using Steam Web API authentication instead
Error: STEAM_KEY environment variable is not set!

It continues on that way for quite a while and never fails out.
Steam is starting differently from how it normally does, using the following line:
LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6' DISPLAY=:0 /usr/bin/steam
The reason for that is Steam would not start at all without it, though I don't know why.
