Ubuntu 13.04 - Black Window Instead of Game
Hello, when I launch the game it appears to start correctly, however all I see is a black window. I'm using the AMD/ATI Legacy FGLRX drivers on my laptop. I tried to visit the Linux section on the Uber website forums, however it says I wasn't authorized even after I made sure my accounts were linked.

What other troubleshooting steps can I take?

It's forum bug, you need to log out on forums and login again, then you'll able to view forums.

It's known bug, you only need to make correct symlink to libudev and it's will work.

Thanks for the fast response!

Here is how you fix it, if anyone else runs into this.

greg@moniker:~$ sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libudev.so.1 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libudev.so.0

If you met any other problems please report on dev forums, it's quite easily to track all Linux-related topics there.
