Also mesa-9.0 at least should work fine

Chris, read the Getting started guide, you are using the old drivers that ship with ubuntu by default.

By enabling a set of repositories you can get access to the Beta drivers.

Again: read the getting started guide

'Mornin' all!
I get the same error message. I installed my proprietary fglrx drivers correctly and they are up and running. I'm googling for some solutions. In the meantime, could someone give me a hint?

Try xorg-edgers ppa or install the beta drivers from the AMD-site. No guarantees.

Steam System Information (under Help, topmenu Steam) gives us more details than the 2 lines.

Also, searching "GL_ext_texture_sRGB_decode" before posting might give more help sooner.
