Team Fortress 2 black screen (Linux Mint Petra 16) [FIXED]
Don't install xorg-edgers. use the other ppa and solutions from comments #1 and #2.

Below are steps that did not solve the issue.
------------------
I've seen other reports but I wasn't able to get it to work, it seems to be really specific to what graphics card you have. I would like some help on checking if my system can run this game or not.

I get the valve intro video and the source logo and trrademark info, after that I guess the video plays and the first screen is missing a background and I can see the menu and buttons but those have their corners displauing a black square in front.

I added the xorg-edgers ppa and upgraded all available packages.

Also installed libglide3

I also tried adding this to the steam executable:

export LANG=C
export LC_NUMERIC=POSIX

Description: free implementation of the OpenGL API -- DRI modules
This version of Mesa provides GLX and DRI capabilities: it is capable of
both direct and indirect rendering. For direct rendering, it can use DRI
modules from the libgl1-mesa-dri package to accelerate drawing.
.
This package does not include the OpenGL library itself, only the DRI
modules for accelerating direct rendering.
.
For a complete description of Mesa, please look at the
libgl1-mesa-glx package.
.
The tdfx DRI module needs libglide3 to enable direct rendering.

purging xorg-edgers and trying https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/graphics-drivers to see if that resolves my issue.

I'm running multiarch so I had to use this solution on #7 (should probably used #8) https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ppa-purge/+bug/892886

tried oibaf again.... didn't work... :(

After reinstalling everything and adding the ~oibaf ppa

tried adding this:

sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental

doesn't solve the issue...

adding 386 libs

safi ia32-libs

didn't solve the issue...

trying this:

sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0 libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386

OH GREAT, THIS DID IT. Must have been an issue with Linux Mint not including those by default or something.

Props to this guy crond for posting it here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=225&t=155095&p=858957#p824734
