Issue Report: Screen stays black after launching TF2 Beta
After i start the TF2 Beta my screen just turns black (with a mousepointer on it) and i hear the Valve Logo sound, afterwards nothing happens, even after waiting for like 10 minutes. I am able to alt+tab out of the window without problems.
I tried it with Gnome 3 and Unity, Serious Sam and other fullscreen games like Nexuiz work like a charm.

The same problem here with Intel Open Source Technology Center Mesa DRI Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset x86/MMX/SSE2, Ubuntu 12.10, Core2Duo, 3GB RAM.
When run TTF2 from terminal I receive:

surface_opengl.cpp (564) : Assertion Failed: glIsTexture( id )
surface_opengl.cpp (845) : Assertion Failed: !"Current texture not set"
surface_opengl.cpp (505) : Assertion Failed: GetTextureForString failed

Same thing here!
Ubuntu 12.04 64 bits
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2160
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 5450
GPU Driver: fglrx-experimental-9 from precise-proposed repository (2:9.010-0ubuntu0.1)

I hear the Valve Logo sound and nothing else. On the terminal I got something that looks like GLSL Shaders code...

I fixed it by exporting

export LANG=C
export LC_NUMERIC=POSIX

but, i think thats not a solution for everyone. Valve should look into this issue

I think this is another problem, not related to the one i reported!

I confirm that
export LANG=C
export LC_NUMERIC=POSIX
Solves the problem for me.
It's a little slow to start, but works.
Heikki Nov 23, 2012 @ 10:20am 
Confirming this, with LANG=fi_FI.UTF-8 TF2 does not work, but with LANG=C everything works.

I think this is rather serious issue, most(?) of the users whose first language is not English install Ubuntu/Linux in their own language, and it is not acceptable workaround to fall back to LANG=C.
AnAkkk Nov 23, 2012 @ 10:38am 
That issue has already been fixed in TF2.
TF2 Beta just isn't up to date.
