Ubuntu(TF2)
When I launch TF2, It gets stuck on the preparing to launch message. Any easy way to fix that?

In steam click on help, then system information. Copy the output you see there and we might be able to help you.

also, try launching steam from a terminal, then copy and paste the output from the point that you try to launch TF2.

@Vuko PL
You need to install the right drivers, I'm not sure what you are using but you have no driver installed that supports opengl.
blackout24 Feb 15, 2013 @ 9:46am 
Yeah I have no experience with AMD drivers but Driver Version: 4.2.11903 Compatibility Profile Context doesn't sound like the latest propriatery driver that is supported by your card. Another AMD user probably can help you out and direct you to the right place.
Vuxon37 Feb 15, 2013 @ 9:53am 
well I'm using AMD proprietary fgrlx-updates driver assuming it's the most recent one, I update daily. thanks, I'll look further
Shark Feb 15, 2013 @ 10:03am 
it's not, the drivers in the repo are so old aren't even supported by steam. If you are using 12.10 make sure you install linux headers by typing this in terminal: sudo apt-get install linx-headers-generic
then open software updater from by clicking on the icon and click on settings. You will find the driver you need under additional drivers, after you've installed it reboot and it's fixed.
Vuxon37 Feb 16, 2013 @ 2:42am 
Thanks Wouter. I tried what you sugested and here's the terminal output:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
linux-headers-generic is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

So I'm guessing nothing changed
Vuxon37 Feb 16, 2013 @ 7:54am 
[SOLVED] Uninstalled ati drivers from repository, then installed latest (but not beta) drivers straight from AMD website. Works flawlessly. Thanks for help
