TF2 Not Available at the moment
I really would like to see this resolved before the tux distribution is up, but I cannot, no matter what I've tried, launch TF2 in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS without this message popping up. What do I do?

Nevermind then, I managed to pull it up after all!

And back down it goes again. I can't get it working, what should I do?

..... a reboot?
A Yellow Pikmin Feb 27, 2013 @ 9:31pm 
Tried it, nothing. I've tried everything I can think of but reinstall it which I'm going to try to do overnight
Junior s2 Camila Feb 27, 2013 @ 9:55pm 
Probably don't need to. I'd re-install everything except the system.
Don't do it if you're not sure if it will help, ok? But it works for me

sudo apt-get remove --purge steam - then go to ./local/share/ and delete steam folder

Have you tried verifying game's cache?

Yeah I have, its still done nothing.

I had the same problem. I've been trying to get TF2 up for days on Ubuntu with absolutely no success until today, when I spent three hours downloading the thing. Now it won't start and I ran out of space on my partition or whatever. That's frustrating.

Have you tried going to ~./local/share/Steam/steamapps/yourusername and deleting the Team Fortress 2 folder?
A Yellow Pikmin Feb 28, 2013 @ 2:29pm 
No I haven't

It doesn't matter, because I told him to delete the whole Steam folder and the problem still persists

Actually, I just finished doing what you said I should, and its just now installing tf2.

Yeah but before you said it didn't =P

Anyway, good to hear it's downloading. Let's hope it starts the game

SO I got home and the download's paused at 98% (Very Frustrating), so then my computer freezes and I do a hard reset. I boot up Ubuntu and try to launch steam and it gives me a fatal error.

I have noticed a few people having this issue have a very Small partition for Linux (normally 16gigs) and as TF2 is around 12gigs + the Ubuntu install there just isn't any room left.

How exactly would one increase steam's partition?
I'm fairly new to linux.
