UNinstall TF2 from Ubuntu
I cant launch Team Fortress 2 after Finally Installing Steam for this crappy OS, and also Finally Installing TF2 on Steam. Every time I attempt to "play" Team Fortress 2, I get an Error message saying that It can not be played at this time. The reason why is because It Fails to Verify the Files. I gets to 100% 0 of 1, and just Stops!

So, I read that the Best thing I can do to bypass this "failure to load files" is to Uninstall and Reinstall TF2 (great, I get to wait 8 hours again -_-) Now, Even though I have read that I have to Uninstall TF2, I CANT FIND ANYWHERE That explains HOW! If anyone knows How, please tell me. Or If anyone knows a better way to solve this issue, please tell me...

If you want to have support from us, do not call the OS we prefer crappy... and what is all that useless uppercase doing in your post?

Although I can understand you are frustrated this probably wont get you much help. Steam for Linux is still new and although out of Beta doesn't mean everything is going to be 100% for everyone.

All I have ever done to remove games in Steam is right click and delete local files. Hopefully someone else can verify this is the correct method (as I am still new to using Steam myself).

Sorry for Call it crappy, Everyone has there own opinion. I am just getting very frustrated from how many error messages I have received at every turn. (ie. Installing Steam, Installing TF2, Attempting to Run TF2, Inability to Run some Videos from Youtube, Error messages for Installing a Up To Date Flash Player for Ubuntu)
I just really want to get it to work

This worked. thanks. I guess I was seeing too much red to think about looking there.
Now we wait, to see Reinstalling it, works...

Good luck and try not to get to frustrated it does take time to learn a New OS. I regularly use Windows, Mac and Linux and each one is pretty different from the other so it can be frustrating to fix anything if you are not familiar with it.

The more time you spend the easier it gets, remember you have years of experience fixing Windows issues and maybe a couple of days with Linux ones.

I accept your sorry ;) Also for me it worked to run TF2 Beta instead of the normal TF2. Also dont forget to install the correct graphics driver. Ubuntu by default gives you the opensource ones, but these aren't suited for games.

You're right in calling Ubuntu a crappy OS; however, not all Linux distributions are crappy ;)

@Hammerheart No just no.

Non-vanilla packages (some even proprietary!), forcing the user to use unity, not allowing the user to pick applications to install on initial install, outdated packages (a bigger issue in Debian than Ubuntu), ... the list goes on. To me that sounds like an operating system that is not 'free'. Lack of freedom is a bad thing.

Don't get me wrong though, I like the fact that new faces are joining the Linux community and my initial comment wasn't dogmatic/compeletely serious; however, you cannot deny Ubuntu's apparent moral and design flaws.

Most distributions look the same since they ususally use the same Desktop Environments.

What are you talking about? I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 on this PC and 12.10 on my other PC and i'm running Gnome with Cairo-Dock on both. As easy as typing the word: gnome, in Synaptic and pressing 'Apply'.

Is it that hard to rightclick tf2 and click delete?

Ubuntu installs Unity without asking the user which DE to use? At least that's how it was/has been for the longest time. Yes, you can install other DEs post-initial install.

There are different projects which ship Ubuntu with different DE's like Xubuntu, Kubuntu and Lubuntu.

Yes, I know, but why would I want to download another disc image just to have Ubuntu install a specific DE?
