Linux client + optirun/bumblebee: Game won't start
Posting in the high hopes that someone else have resolved this issue.

When launched from Steam linux client, the game opens a window for a short time, then exits.

Here's what Steam returns.

Failed to load installscript /home/username/Steam/SteamApps/common/Frozen Synapse/installscript.vdf

Please email the file console.log from the directory ~/.local/share/FrozenSynapse to jimmeh@mode7games.com

Figured it out. You need to run the game from a terminal.
From a terminal, go to ~/Steam/SteamApps/common/Frozen Synapse and run
optirun ./FrozenSynapse

you might need to include the steam path for multiplayer to work:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/Steam/ubuntu12_32/ optirun ./FrozenSynapse

btw, this will work with killing floor too. (edit: Trine 2 as well)

With Super brothers, do the following
create a steam_appid.txt with just 204060 in it. Put it in ~/Steam/SteamApps/common/Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery EP/bin
and run from ~/Steam/SteamApps/common/Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery EP
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/Steam/ubuntu12_32/ optirun ./run.sh
