Issue Report: Can't start Amnesia: The Dark Descent Demo - EDIT
After I downloaded Amnesia demo I clicked on PLAY and it opened a transparent window.

{LINK REMOVED - Please don't spam, and be wary of scams.}http://bit.ly/V9poxw

When I tried to close it by clicking on "X", it every time opened a new window, so I had kill the Launcher.bin in system monitor.

Terminal output is here: http://pastebin.com/ZHd1rJTk

Okay, when I launch it from game folder, game start. But when I click on launch after few pictures of developer etc. it freeze on Loading screen

Hey buddy, i have a temporary solution. Go to ~/Steam/SteamApps/common/Amnesia\ The\ Dark\ Descent\ Demo/ and launch ./Launcher.bin
Enjoy :D

Yes, I knew it, but the right problem is, that Steam it can't run properly :)) :D

Check my message in the last thread about this.

But yes, everything else about that launcher window is completely broken.

Is not big deal. If the Steam developers change the executable for ./Launcher.bin to ./Amnesia.bin, i think can run properly. :D

They should also use "uname -m" instead of "arch" in the shell script to check wich binary is launched. The is no arch command on my flavor of linux. But uname should be available for all.
