Left 4 Dead 2 Performance Issues low FPS
I have performance issues with this game. My FPS are 10 average. Sometimes the game blocks for a while and the music starts a loop. I'm using xorg driver. With fglrx performance is even worst.

Ok i can't turn off "multicore rendering" option, that can bring issues. I change its value to disabled and press DONE, but when I open video options again value has not changed.
Jimbo Jan 12 @ 4:34am 
I deactivated multicore rendering using console (mat_queue_mode 0) but performance is still awfull.
Jimbo Jan 12 @ 5:00am 
I change to fglrx again and it seems that performance has improve. with low graphics i got 60 fps, but game freezes sometimes for a while.

Can you put your Steam's output at pastebin.com or somewhere and give us the link to it?
Jimbo Jan 15 @ 1:51pm 
This time I have been able to play, but in console appears some errors. I had to play with LOW graphics, because with HIGH i had 20 fps.

Did you try to verify game cache (a button in game settings)? In the output I see like some files are missing... Do your other games work Ok? You use Unity, right? Can you try with another DE?
BTW I found something similar in Google: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Dota-2/issues/648

http://pastebin.com/ax9yf34Q I've had a seg fault. I'd tried with gnome and KDE, but it has the same problems. Now Im using fglrx until ubuntu upgrade radeon driver. Half life and counter works fine.

To me all that looks like the game can't use GPU and uses IGP... E.g. these lines look suspicious:
SDL video target is 'x11'
SDL failed to create GL compatibility profile (whichProfile=0!
Maybe Catalyst driver needs updating... But honestly I still don't have a clear idea.

As I'm using ubuntu i'll report a bug to them, because i don't want to loose their support.
