Dota2 test version only gives a black screen
I am using a hybrid graphics laptop. When I try to launch dota2 test version, i only get a black screen. When I use optirun to launch steam and start dota2, I got the valve scarry info video and then crash. Anyone knows what is the problem and how to fix it?

https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Dota-2/issues/185 maybe? Try

rm "$HOME/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/dota 2 test/GFxShaders.cache"

actually, I figured out that if you start the game from the dota.sh it runs and works perfectly as far as I can tell. Although it does crash the first time it tries to start and then immediately starts a second time and then works fine. wonder if this is more an issue with Steam and not the game developers?
