Make sure that you have opted into the Portal 2 beta. If you did, it should be displayed as "Portal 2 (Beta) [Beta]" in the library (with the word "beta" appearing twice). You can check the "Betas" tab on the properties window for Portal 2 as well. If "NONE" is selected, then you need to enable the beta, otherwise the game will not work.

If the game still does not run after you opt into the beta, there might be a GPU driver problem. For example, if you have old open source drivers that came pre-installed with the distribution, you may need to update them.
