I can't play VVVVVV on linux
I don't know why, but when I install the game it doesn't take almost any time.
When I try to launch the game It throw an error to me. Steam can't find the executable.

What can I do?

Get one of your Steam friends to email it to you as a .txt, maybe? Just a suggestion.

Check whether the executable is in place, and whether it has executing permissions (777).

Thanks for the answer but it seems like VVVVVV is not on the steam beta.

BTW I have checked the game folder and there isn't any game folder for VVVVVVV.

Thanks for all.

Yep, despite the fact that it appears downloadable, it does apparently not work. After checking ~/Steam/SteamApps/common/VVVVVV, the game files are also not present, so, I guess it may still be work in progress or something.

It requires password for the linux beta. Does someone got any?

Invitations for linux beta are sent from Valve. You had to fill the survey and ... good luck.
I've the same problem : VVVVVV can't start and game folder is empty

Same here

Even if you have password for Linux beta, VVVVVV isn't included in Linux games on Steam. Just check: http://store.steampowered.com/browse/linux/. Do you see VVVVVV? I don't. Well, if you see VVVVVV in your Linux Steam Library - that's just a bug. The same problems appear with LIMBO, Osmos and many others.

but in dont understand why it looks like downloaded in my steam games list....
Romitas Dec 27, 2012 @ 11:18pm 
That's a bug. Nothing else, really.

Does anyone know if they plan on adding it to Steam for Linux? I mean, Terry Cavanaugh has a Linux version for sale on his official site, so why not have it available on Steam?

Probably not a bug either. There is a VVVVVV linux beta listed within the properties, which is why it appears in the list on Linux.

It's password protected though.

Yup. Must be that. It's a pity, for a second I thought it would work. Oh well, lets wait and see. :D

If you have a deb file for it from the humble bundle or w/e you can install it and then move the files to your steam folder and it works fine. Psychonauts has this same problem unfortunently I did not buy that bundle. :(

Xarin,
Really?!.. No, are you serious?.. Oh, I must try it. Just now. Immediately. Great thanks for the brilliant idea!

What about Psychonauts... well, maybe I'll be able to help you. You've already bought the game on Steam so I don't think that would be piracy. ;) Take this: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/56563744/psychonauts-linux-01042012-bin.torrent
