Having trouble wth tf2.
Every time I try to launch tf2, it validates, it sticks at 100% for a few minutes, then either says it could not be completed, due to no network connection, or it says "finished", and has no error, but validates when I try to play it immediately after.

Can you try validating the game files. And also try running Steam from a terminal: Open the terminal and type 'steam' without quotes. Then paste the output you get when you try and run tf2.

I don't know why, but after a number of times restarting the computer, now it doesn't validate, but now it says the game is not available.
Anorak Man Feb 20, 2013 @ 5:21am 
It says unavailable when you try to launch it? Did you try validating the files + running steam from at terminal?
Cancer Feb 20, 2013 @ 5:25am 
It says it's unavailable after saying it's launching.
How do you open the terminal?
Sorry, I just installed ubuntu yesterday.

It's ok, we've all got to start somewhere :)
Ubuntu with the Unity user interface - I think you open the menu and start typing terminal, it should show you the terminal in the search results.
Otherwise there's a keyboard shortcut crtl-alt-t

What version of Ubuntu are you using, is it 32 or 64 bit, and what graphics hardware do you have?
Cancer Feb 20, 2013 @ 5:31am 
The ubuntu is 12.04 LTS, or w/e, and it is 32bit, and the driver says "VESA SUMO".

When I run steam in the terminal, it does this:
infinity@ubuntu:~$ steam
cp: writing `/home/infinity/.local/share/Steam/bootstrap.tar.xz': No space left on device
cp: failed to extend `/home/infinity/.local/share/Steam/bootstrap.tar.xz': No space left on device
\Package libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 needs to be installed
Package libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 needs to be installed





then opens a new terminal window and it says this:


Steam needs to install these additional packages:
libgl1-mesa-dri:i386, libgl1-mesa-glx:i386
[sudo] password for infinity: ((Then i put my password in))

Well, how much disk space do you have left? You can check just by opening a file browser, it tells you at the bottom of the window. Or you can type

'df -h' in the terminal.
Cancer Feb 20, 2013 @ 5:42am 
It says I have like 150 mb left... That's not right, because on the disk space window (The one you get when it says you have low memory left) it says I have like 447 gb left. D:
Is there a way to let ubuntu have more space on my computer? Because apparently there's much more room it's not using.

Is ubuntu the only OS on your computer, or are you dual booting or using wubi?
٣٦١ Feb 20, 2013 @ 5:48am 
same for me,
my OS is Windows 8 and im have this trouble,
but now im install VMware+Ubuntu to get penguin, but this trouble with validating happened again.
Cancer Feb 20, 2013 @ 5:48am 
I'm dual booting with windows 7.
Hey, I gotta go now, school, but I'll be back later Thanks for the help, though!

@361.AAA, you're not going to get much performance out of TF2 on a virtual machine. In fact, VMware doesn't support OpenGL 3.0 at all as far as I know.

And I'm really not inclined to help you if all you're after is the penguin.

Now im understand that VM not support OpenGL 3.0 . But this happened with me on Windows 8 too:) Yes, all what im want > its penguin , ill try another ways :)

Just out of interest, why are you using VMware? What made you pick that?

I'll still help anyway - can you follow the same steps I gave to "[TB] Pyro's Mad World Of Flames"?
