TF2 Wine
I know, I know, that's not a wine forum here and I know there's a native TF2 version for TF2.
But I can't use it yet because of the famous issue 19[github.com]. So I went ahead and installed TF2 via Wine (Crossover 12.1) and it works. I can start it, watch recordings and it works without any problem.
BUT I can't join any server. It crashes after I hit continue in the motd screen. And I have no clue why. Is there someone here who knows what do to?

The Wine HQ[appdb.winehq.org] page for TF2 might be a good place to look. One of the workaround posted there sounds like it could be related to your problem:

Team Fortress 2 crashes after connecting to some servers

If you can connect to some servers and not others consistently it is most likely caused by the MOTD displayed at the start of any match. This can disabled for all servers via the in-game options.

Options -> Multiplayer -> Advanced -> Disable MOTD (checkbox).

This also happens with some languages has some symbols that Wine can't handle and Team Fortress 2 is a game that is full translated, so, when you connect some servers the engine load this fonts and crash TF2, to solve-it just set language of Steam to english, all the games will be english. This bug happens with portuguese, but, can happen with other languages as well.

I never tried to disable it completly but I will give it a try.
But as I said the MOTD seems to work. It crashes after I press the continue button.

Why would you run it in wine, it runs natively on steam linux.

-.- I suck at reading today. Anyway, you might want to try playonlinux.

You'd be surprised, a number of games can actually run better in WINE than natively (To windows included)

My suggestion is to install the latest Wine from source. If you are not sure how to go about this route, let me know. I could write up a quick how-to.

Or just use the PPA for the unstable version and save yourself the trouble.
Tux9656 (3.14.8-ck1) 3 mar, 2013 @ 6:49pm 
Of course, use the PPA. I'm a Debian user and forget that there is a PPA for just about everything in Ubuntu. I guess, I've become accustom to installing some software from source, and also enjoy doing it this way as well for greater configuration/optimization flexabillity.

Bonus of compiling from source is you can have multiple parallel wine installs at the same time, though. As a side note, when did Wine update to 1.41 in the repositories? I thought it had been 1.0-something for ages -- and that's in Testing (which is also part of why I started compiling it from source).

wine-unstable 1.5.6 is in unstable. I guess there's not much interest in maintaining Wine in the Debian repo these days.

Well I use the comercial wine version Crossover 12.1.2 (Link[www.codeweavers.com]). But I guess I'll give playonlinux and other newer wine configures a try.

But why on earth does it crash? I mean it's just supposed to show the "map details" after I press Continue on the MOTD screen. And as I said, the game itselfs works, I can watch recordings!

It has various versions in the repositories. 12.04 has 1.3 and 1.4. You need a PPA for 1.5, which I strongly recommend.
