End of Steam Linux Beta
Don't you guys think it's a bit premature? Of all the steam titles that I own, none of them work in the native steam client. DoD, CS, TF2, none work. All have some sort of bug that prevents them from running correctly. I'm not here to rant and rave, just curious why Valve would make such a move.

To be fair, most people are able to play most games rather well. And unless your actually running ubuntu, your issues may not affect Valve's claim of it's stability anyway.

To be honest though, I was surprised when it left beta, however I don't now how long it was in beta for, I only had i for a few days prior to the official release.

I use Linux Mint, which is binary compatible with Ubuntu. It's good to hear that others at least have managed to get their stuff running. I didn't think my system specs were that exotic, though I'm sure that is what is causing the run issues for me. I think the Linux client has been in beta (closed and open) for about half a year now.

I'm using Ubuntu 12.10 x64 and all of those games work flawlessly for me.
CS 1.6, CS:CZ, CS:S, DoD, DoD:S and HL2:Deathmatch -----> work great.

Ubuntu actually has stability issues? Because it's been painful to me as well.
'til now I blamed fglrx for my problems.

Most likely hardware on my end then. You would think that two 680 GTX in SLI wouldn't be too crazy to get supported... my guess is that Nvidia is dropping the ball. I have faith that Valve will set them straight though. Just need to be patient.

Didn't say it didn't, just that Valve /can/ adjust the statistics slightly by focusing on ubuntu/solving for ubuntu.

I also use Mint Nadia (14), and I'm using Nvidia GT 640m? and running my games (only have tf2 out of those) well - save for a small controller support bug.

It's hard to say what the cause is, but good luck~

I'd try it without SLI maybe. Using Ubuntu 13.04 with a 560 Ti with the 313.26 drivers. 20 Linux games and each one runs absolutely flawlessly.

Everything works like a charm on my end. They even implemented a tray icon which blends in nicely into the KDE Plasma tray. What more can you ask for.

Half life Counterstrike and Teamfortress 2 all work very good on suse kde.
Serious sam 3 also runs pretty good.
If you want things to be fixed though, its probaly better to post on the github.
Include system info, and the output from the command line.
Start steam from the commandline with, steam.

Copying and pasting is really weird for me in Steam. There are a couple of other rare bugs, like being able to click through windows sometimes (window is visible, but as soon as I click, it focuses on the window behind).

I reported the first one a month ago, it's still not fixed. A bunch of other people I know of have it too.

Also, Steam windows don't flash on Cairo-Dock. That should be really easy to implement universally for all DEs (two little things called dBus and libnotify, I believe), but I was told there are no plans for it, and Unity support is prioritised... even though it's an easy task.

Games work well, though. But games are not the Steam Client, they are different programs. If the client was open source, the bugs mentioned would be fixed overnight. But I guess asking Valve to open up the client is too much to ask.

i still cant install games into another steam directory.
even tho it has an option, it goes in the main folder.
i temporarly made a link from the main steamapp folder to one on another drive but its not correct.

I find it always wants to install to the nearly-spaceless default location, rather than the alternate which has more free space. But, if I take a few extra seconds to specifically select the alternate it doesn't have an issue.

Aside from the lack of highlight-middle-click paste?

I don't know how comfortable you might be with it, but try running Steam through the terminal (CLI). It won't fix anything, but it will spew out a bunch of errors that help you pinpoint the problem. For instance, it might complain about a missing file that once you get it, everything starts working.

That's only if you feel comfortable enough to use the CLI, though.

Everything works like charm here, really great experience. TF2, killing floor, serious sam3, spectraball, haven't had a single problem. Using debian wheezy and steam installed w Kano's script. (kde, nvidia 313.18, gtx480)

Grumbles - are you able to run a non-steam OpenGL game at good speeds? I'm just wondering if the problem is on the side of your NVIDIA SLI setup, or if it's a valve issue? If it only occurs with valve titles or particular games, you might want to get a bit more detail on the problem and log a bug on the github page!

I'm guessing that SLI setups aren't too common among linux users yet, as high-end gaming is relatively new. Filing a bug report could really help.
