Issue Report: TF2 framerate and text imput weirdness
I'm on a Macbook Pro 6,2 that has three partitions, Ubuntu, Windows, and OSX. TF2 is installed on all three, and there are some problems on the Ubuntu one.
For one, it seems getting a message from somebody in my friends list will occasionally remove my ability to input text in whatever text field I am in. This may be a product of the OS at large, but it seems to only effect Steam. No idea why that's happening, but it is.
As for the second...
TF2 is getting really weird FPS. According to the output CL_SHOWFPS 1, it generally goes from a really low FPS (around 3 or 4) to an okay one (30 or so) then back to the low one every few seconds, regardless of what I'm looking at. On my other OSes, I get much, much higher FPS. Additionally, taking damage removes the number on the health bar, although the inside of it decreases in size correctly.
This is probably a driver issue, but I thought I'd bring it to your attention.
