Issue Report: Intel Graphics HD3000/4000 and TF2 Black screen
SOLUTION:
1.Open in gedit file /usr/bin/steam as root
2.Add this line after "#! /bin/bash"
export LANG=C
3. Save the file.

Thread copied from here.

Black screen appears after launching TF2. I can hear Valve intro but after that nothing happened.
Seems like other users have same issue.

TF2 works fine for me on Intel HD4000 and Ubuntu 12.10 AMD64. My first guess for why it isn't working for you would be that S3TC isn't installed. Kano gave a command to install it in the original thread:
sudo -i
apt-get --yes install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0;test `uname -m`! = x86_64! && dpkg --add-architecture i386 && apt-get --yes install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386
If it's not that, it might be a missing 32-bit library. Run this command to fix most architecture related issues:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

Even with those commands, with an HD3000, I still have the same problem as Critis, Critis everywhere .


EDIT: http://pastebin.com/rmshUGzp Here's the terminal output about the problem.

Still have problems on HD4000.
Is this x86_64-only problem?

As I said, TF2 works fine for me on Ubuntu 12.10 (64-bit) out of the box. Whatever the problem is, it can almost certainly be found in the delta between 12.04 and 12.10.

The problem is that game cannot compile some shaders.
