My only 3 problems on linux. (Screenshots for quick explanation)
Some avatars/icons in the hero selection screen get glitched.

I'm not a gem magnet anymore... :(

Some of the character's textures seem to glitch (not all)

But if i load a character with bad textures in tavern, then go to a map it will be fixed until i swap hero again.

Otherwise everything is working like a charm. The only real gameplay issue is that the gems don't get auto picked up.

So, am i the only one having these issues? or more like is there anyone not having these issues? Can i fix them by installing some missing dependancy or something?

For additional info (and here i'm wishing for a spoiler tag)
I'm running x86_64 arch linux latest stable kernel. I've got the nvidia proprietary drivers and i have an intel i7 processor. i'm running Enlightenment E17 from arch's official repositories as my Window Manager also.

Even if i want these problems fixed. I'm not complaining. I think its impressive that there are no bigger problems. and I'm loving that it's compatible with the windows version so you can play with the players who are playing it on windows without problems.

Mana does not get auto picked up for linux. It makes insane and nightmare soloing impossible. So you will have to find groups. Trendy is not going to fix these issues ever. They are focusing on DD2 so we will have to get used to playing like this.

What about the textures?

I'm suffering from the mana issue as well. The game also doesn't quit after I close it down.

Those are my only two issues at the moment. The mana issue seems the strangest to me as that would not be a part of any OS specific code.

The mana-magnet issue was apparantly a known bug when they released the port. It will be fixed at some point, but it may take a few months. See: https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5831

If I understand things correctly the port is being maintained by Icculus, not by Trendy. So DD2 shouldn't interfere with bug-fixing in the Linux port.

Mana issue has to do with PhysX (see Dacke's link).

I don't think I've noticed any texture issues. Definitely none missing, but maybe once or twice it looks like the LOD is too low.

There are probably 20 "problems" I have regularly, but nothing that I feel is worth complaining about. The biggest buzzkill for me prior to the Steam release was having to start the game two or three times before I could "Press any key." Those days are gone - everything else is manageable.

Few more month and it will be a year of Trendy ignoring to fix the gem problem plus the series EV crash bug, Linux users should give them an award for such splendid not fixing bugs...
