[SOLVED] Issue Report: Steam client blinks very fast, can't run games
My steam-client flashes very fast from transparent to normal view when using the default Unity desktop in Ubuntu. Clicking on the navi is totally impossible, because the nav list won't stay still.

Switching to the 2D version of Unity, the steam client doesn't blink as forcefully as in the default Unity and the nav is usable.
However, the games don't run in both cases and it seems that the game window is crashing right after the Steam launch.

I am using the AMD 12.6 Legacy drivers and ia386 is installed

Here's my hardware info and terminal command output from the both desktop environments.

You’re going to need newer drivers, ‘X context is not using direct rendering’ means all graphics commands go through the X server, further slowing down rendering which would explain the flickering.

Could you post the output from glxinfo ?

Also see http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410/discussions/0/882966056280450437/ for other users on the legacy drivers
pistus89 2012년 12월 6일 오전 3시 49분 
I already tried to find newer drivers. Got no results because of AMD's poor support for my graphics card. There's two propiertary drivers found on my "additional drivers" -menu: the AMD/ATI propiertary FLGRX driver (doesn't say anything about the version) which I'm currently using and there's the same drivers "post-release updates" which fails to install when I tried to activate it. Should I give a try for AMD open source drivers?

here is my glxinfo
name of display: :0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: ATI
server glx version string: 1.4
client glx vendor string: ATI
client glx version string: 1.4
GLX version: 1.4
OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650
OpenGL version string: 3.3.11627 Compatibility Profile Context
OpenGL shading language version string: 3.30

direct rendering: Yes
conflicts with Steam’s output of:
Assert( Assertion Failed: X context is not using direct rendering. Unfasten your seatbelt... ):/home/buildbot/buildslave_steam/steam_rel_client_ubuntu12_linux/build/src/vgui2/src/surface_linux.cpp:1324
, so maybe they are detecting something in an odd way.

Note the error with crashpad not uploading files
/tmp/dumps/assert_20121205232608_1.dmp success = no error: Failed to open/read local data from file/application
, it might be worth uploading those dumps and linking them here, can help them debug.

Maybe you have working 64bits driver but a broken 32bits one.
pistus89 2012년 12월 8일 오전 11시 08분 
Solved the problem!

Steam working now without blinking and games don't crash! (yei!) It really was a driver issue. I just installed a package "libgl1-mesa-swrast" which installed mesa drivers and removed the FLGRX.
However, the OpenGL doesn't recognize the VRAM size of the gpu. The terminal gives me note:
WRN: [OpenGL] Unable to determine VRAM size... assuming 512 MB.

The real VRAM size in my graphics card is 1024 MB.
This issue makes problem with playing Serious Sam, because the fps is very low and the whole game is laggy when I start to play map.

Is there any way to get OpenGL determine the correct size of VRAM?
