Team Fortress 2 wont launch
Hello and welcome to my post. I have recently downloaded team fortress 2, and it will not launch. Steam has no problems however when I try to launch TF2 it says something along the line of "launching team fortress 2", then that message disapers, and nothing happens. I am running Lubuntu 12.10, and am using the recommended Nvidia driver. Any known solutions that do not involve changing my OS, or anything major?

Thanks!

-Edit
I have tried nvidia-exprimental-310
, and verifying the cache, but no luck.
I am fully updated

I don't think you have to change your OS. This happended to me once, just had to Verify game's chache and restart my PC.

Close Steam and enter this in a terminal window:

steam steam://rungameid/440

Afterwards share the output with us.

I'm in the same boat as "Me".

Steam installed successfully, and runs well.
System up-to-date per update manager.
Nvidia drivers 310.14 installed.

When launching TF2, I get the window that it is preparing to launch, then a black terminal windows flashes by (at least I think it's a terminal window - goes by too quickly for me to see the title bar) and ...well, that's it. My status changes to being "in game" in the instant that the black window flashes up, then it drops me back out again.

When I run the command
steam steam://rungameid/440
I get MUCH more than "Me" does. Would it help to post it?

I have encountered the same problem. I am running the recommended third-party AMD drivers (accessed via jockey-edm). When I type the following into terminal:

steam steam://rungameid/440

I receive the following output:
