Nice... Does the in-game overlay work?
I’m glad they brought Steam to Linux so people would have an easier way to load wine.

So I got this to work partially for L4D2 on wine, but it errors out at the game menu saying that steam isnt running. Have you gotten this to work for Steam+Wine games?

Also couldn't seem to get this working for CS:GO on wine; wine starts up fine but CS:GO never starts.

Games with DX11 won't work in that way -_-

Simply disable Dx10 and Dx11 in winecfg before try to use those games....assuming of course that the game supports Dx9....

That's because these games use the Steam servers for online play. If you're desperate, you could always pirate the game you bought (which is possibly legal, because, hey, you did pay for it), but you lose the ability to play online. Or you can simply wait the 1 - 3 months till these games are added to the lineup.
