Issue Report: Font glyphs not displaying in TF2
Without setting any environment variables I get the following when starting tf2:, basically a black screen (my window manager, dwm, maintains focus on the steam client)

When calling steam with `SDL_AUDIODRIVER=alsa LC_NUMERIC=POSIX steam steam://rungameid/440` I get:

`locale -a` gives

I've had a look around the thread but can't find anything relevant, any ideas?

Forgot to add, running dwm as my WM with no DE.

Anyone got any ideas?

This still happening? I've seen this exact thing when you do "mat_showmiplevels 1". We fixed it, but that won't get out until next week. Have you done anything like that by any chance?
I may have, I by default hooked up my cfg folder from my windows install which uses chris's maxframes config. I've recently wiped arch and am trying with xubuntu to see what happens.

If you'd like me to load arch back on and provide any more information let me know.

I'll try to install Arch here - I need to give it a try. Thanks for the help.
I've reverted to arch, clean install, no configs.

On my last try I'd copied the .gcf files from my windows install to my linux SteamApps folder. I figure this wont be a problem, but just so everything is clean I've kept my cfg folder open and am installing TF2 from steam without copying the gcf's.

I'll let you know how I go.

It seem for the clean install that it works fine, no font glyph issues.

It loads of up in what appears to be 640x480. The only problem I'm now having is the the onscreen mouse position doesn't map to where the game seems to think it is, and the mouse is locked to travelling within the game screen so there are some buttons that can;'t be clicked (i.e. the "continue" from the motd when you first join a server).

Changing the launch options to `-sw -w 1280 -h 960` allows me to change the resolution and fixes the mapping of the mouse pointer, so I assume it's just a full screen problem.

Are you saying it loaded up fullscreen at 640x480 and there were mouse issues?

Yes, ignored the launch options for fullscreen as well.

The onscreen position -> game menu position mapping was off.

Sorry , I'll be more clear.

On a clean install it loaded up in fullscreen at 640x480 and there were mouse issues (mapping of on screen cursor position to where the in-game menu registered it).

Adding launch option '-w 1280 -h 960' had no effect, it still loads in 640x480 in full screen and the mouse issues are still present

Adding launch options '-sw -w 1280 -h 960' sovles the problems, it launches in windowed mode at the correct resolution and there are no mouse issues.
