Failed to start game (invalid app config). Linux
As stated above on Ubuntu 12.04 I get a dialog box stating the above. A re-install does not fix the issue. Upon installing it seems to install in less than a second without downloading anything. I'm having the exact same issue with Snapshot. Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure if this is a Steam issue or game specific.

It is game specific. From what I understand, the devs can "turn on" linux support without actually having the install files ready.

Boo! I was too excited when I saw Runner on my Linux games list (Debian Wheezy here, yo!)... yet I ended with a empty folder :(

Ah well... just a bit more... I hope.

Interesting, okay, at least there's a reason.

That explains when you hit Install, there is no specific install info such as size etc.

Hm.... I'd love to finally play those games on Linux! Hope the developers think so too

Thing is they already have the games available in the Ubuntu store but not sure if they're going to get around adding them to Steam. I think they have to go through the whole Greenlight process to get them noticed. Haven't seen them though, if you do, vote for them.

This is a known issue. Just means the Linux version still isn't there yet. So we just have to keep politely pestering

So who do we pester? This happens for me on several games that already have non-steam linux versions.

Ya, if you're a Humble Bundle supporter there are many games in this situtation. I would email them directly personally.

its the same for other Humble Bundle Titles. like Cave Story+, the workaround, just use the build provided on the Humble Bundle website
