Need Help with TF 2
So recently I have downloaded Team fortress 2 and started the game up, but encountered several problems with what I assume are graphical glitches. The first problem is when starting up the game and the valve logo appears with the valve on the mans head or whatever, there seems to be a strange shade of green layered over the logo. The second problem is in game, I started up in a random server where I attempted to play, but the problem was that I couldn't see anything, everything was practically all black, I could barely see the floor beneath me. I went on several different servers, but it was the same for all of them, I couldn't see anything. I assume both problems tie in with each other as some graphical errors some where in the system and I would love to receive assistance with my problem. If anyone can help please do so, all help is greatly appreciated.

Hmm, I have absolutely no experience with ATI/AMD cards under Linux. I see you're running the open-source drivers though. Have you tried the latest Catalyst drivers and do you still get the same problem?

your Mesa 8.0.4 is way out of date so is the Gallium 0.4 the Radeon HD 4000 Series run best on Opensource Drivers for most users
