TF2 Ubuntu Black Screen on start
So, as the title says, since the last update i get that lovely black screen. It loads to the menu, you can hear the music and whatnot.



I've tried open source and proprietary drivers. I've tried all the tips and tricks given here as well with no avail. Any other solutions out there?

ive been getting it since oct 1. everyone using linux kernel has. sadly, if you want to play you got to use mesa drivers.

edit: say hi to valve, it will take them valve time to revert linux changes

Seems there is not much linux players, so they may forget about it… like for ever… I start to hate updates, they not only brake my servers, but clients as well

I thought it was just my computer that had this tf2 issue on Linux. I hope they fix it soon.

SteamOS

It would be quite sad if they did not fix this.

Same problem. Only effects TF2, CS:Go runs flawlessly. Appears to be some issue with the fglrx ATI drivers and the last TF2 update.

my pc just downloaded an update for tf2. I won't be at my ubuntu machine for a few days. If anyone could post whether or not the issue was resolved they will receive much cookies.
