    STEAM on Linux BETA

    Ok, this thread is for all those lucky enough to have been granted access to the beta to post tips, trickes and bugs (and if possible reports and/or fixes).
    Please don't use this thread for general discussion, there are enough of them already.

    Re: STEAM on Linux BETA

    I am testing with my Macbook 4.2 using Ubuntu 12.10 and Steam runs just fine! I am using Xorg-Edgers latest PPA for Intel drivers, thus I have not problem with 3D accel. BTW temps are quite higher than before. Speaking with numbers, I've got 70-80 Celsius running the game.

    Bugs:
    1) I can't maximize steam window in Unity, but it works fine in KDE.
    2) My cursor disappears when browsing into Steam Client.

    In case you don't already have a beta key, there is a tricky way to play two or three games. Yes even without a beta key, you can play them (for the time being). Check this video, me playing World of Goo.

    I am installing Killing Floor now and will test it out as soon as it downloads and report my findings.

    Edit: Killing Floor installs but won't run due to "missing executable".

    I installed Steam on my Kubuntu 64 bit system and circumvented the "closed beta" message by opening steam via this link: steam://open/friends
    When I click the Team Fortress 2 "Play Game" link, it does nothing.

    Re: STEAM on Linux BETA

    Which Nvidia driver should I use for it?

    304 or 310... Is one more stable than the other or does it matter?
    Projects: PhotoFiltre LX | Xwii | URT-2D | TTM

    For those in Kubuntu type in terminal...

    steam steam://nav/library to launch Steam.


    Also don't think you can install TF2 if your not in the beta, it either tells you servers are too busy or it crashes.
