Ubuntu : Crashes to desktop.
I got Ubuntu 13.04. I am trying to ditch windows completly.
Since I use this new OS, the game fails to enter on lots of games, and when enters, lets me play until the moment it changes the map. Then spit me to desktop whithout any kind of message. Sometimes it doesn fails at the first load of the map, but in the following after this does it.

My pc:
core i7, 2600 at 3.40 gig
16 gig of ram
GeForce GTS 250/PCIe/SSE2 with drivers 325
64 bit
Ubuntu 13.04

I think i could deal with the error, but when you try to play continuosly it becomes a pain in the ♥♥♥. Almost no games are finished. Funny thing is, i think players believe that i leave the games on purpose, cos im raggin.

Still having this issue? Do other Steam games work? I'm running 64-bit Debian and Nvidia graphics so I may be able to help. Add me if you want.

I have the same problem. Random Crashes on Kubuntu 13.04 (64 bits) with a intel HD4000 GPU, using the latest drivers (xorg-edgers)

Windows PCs are the one and only for gaming, as all games are designed for Windows, then ported.

Oh dear, my dear... did you think this post is to discuss for which OS is better? Sorry. Valve says that in the next generation we are going to play in ubuntu too. I agree with them in that. I am posting about bugs and performance to help them improve in the quality assurance.

No I didn't. I explained, briefly, why Linux and Mac are not good for gaming, because the games are ported. Ported games have bugs. Lots of them. That makes most games nearly unplayable until they are properly fixed, and this usually takes more than just a few updates as new bugs keep coming. Will never work properly in Mac though, because Mac is ♥♥♥♥. But, it will someday work fine in Linux. I like Linux, but if you're a gamer you should have a Windows-Linux Dual Boot.

I HAVE Windows7 x86 AND CRASHES TO DESKTOP. Please dont post about windows or reinstalation of the game. Needed Solution, or some fix...
Same Problem for CS: Global Offensive; Team Fortress 2 works normally.
How to report Valve about L4d 2, can someone answer?

Left 4 Dead series is supported in the Long Term Support release of Ubuntu, 12.04 LTS Desktop, anything beyond that and it's not supported. 12.10 works but it requires alot of tweaks.

13.04 is the lastest Ubuntu however it's also kind of a Beta and is not what Steam is going to support seeing as it's a release that is constantly changing and thus causes alot of problems for Valve that they just really don't want to invest time and money into everytime they put out a new point release vs the Long Term Support which will be relatively the same aside from minor updates for the next few years. If you are going to play games in Linux you will want to stay with the 12.04 LTS Desktop version of Ubuntu.

Have I made sense?

I'm not saying it will never work in 13.04 becaues it will as long as you are a programmer and don't mind the time and effort to fix the little issues that crop up.

I am saying that Valve is doing everything for Steam and their games in the Long Term Support Version. Currently 12.04.

So...

13.04 = If you are a programmer and don't mine debugging everything for everyone else on your own time.

or

12.04 LTS = Valve does everything for you... Well almost but you get the idea.

Make Sense now?

Just want to say that it happens to me too, but not randomly.
Games crashes when graphic gets intense, and a certain crash happens when The Message of The Day appears.

Btw, uBuntu is doing away the idea of long term support version toward rapid development.
