So many of Valve's other Source games have been ported to Linux, including the original Portal, so where is Portal 2?

If you look in the installation location of Portal 2 you can see they have a portal 2 shell executable, but it doenst work if u put it on Linux.....so we know they are working on it, but not sure when they will fix whatever it is that is broken, or activate it or whatever.

Valve I'll buy this game only when the linux version will be out

I only have (and will have) Linux, and I'll be the first to buy Portal 2 for Linux (as I did for Portal). When will it be out?

Was surprised to see Portal 2 wasn't on Linux but most other games including Portal 1 was. Get to it Valve!

Just bought Portal 2 (beta) - runs great! No problems so far (did only two chambers yet). Thanks so much guys.

I've played through almost the entire game and it works pretty much flawlessly. The only serious bug I've encountered is that the game doesn't recognize Xbox 360 controllers, so you can't play splitscreen co-op.

my friend just gifted me Portal 2 and it shows up as being able ot install into linux. do i need to enable beta within the properties or what?

yes you do, Portal 2 is in Linux beta at the moment so you need to enable the beta from the "betas" tab in the game properties. It's playable but be prepared to encounter bugs.

They seem to be patching frequently, hopefully fuse support (ntfs-linux) is soon. seems to be a recurring issue
