Steam games unable to launch from Lutris without Steam already running

I’m having an issue where Steam games are unable to be launched from Lutris unless Steam has already been launched. For example, if my computer has freshly booted, I launch Lutris, and I attempt to run a Steam game in my library, it will fail to launch unless I manually launch Steam. My debug logs can be found here, but I’m not sure how to upload the json file from running lutris --submit-issue.

I am having the same issue on opensuse - but I get the message:

“Steam on Linux now requires the ability to create new user namespaces.”

If I start the steam runner in lutris I can start the games from the games library - just not within lutris.
