If it makes you feel any better, a whole lot of people have reported this "bug."
I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.
Ubuntu user 28819
I had been playing minecraft since beta. Not sure why they recommended real Java, because I never had trouble with openjdk.
I got into Linux Steam while it was still beta in January. I got Counter Strike:Source and Half Life 2 when they were on sale, but have mostly be playing Team Fortress 2.
Since I got a game controller (Logitech F710) to qualify for Steam OS hardware beta test, I was looking for something to use that with and recently bought a space program on sale called Salvation Prophecy. I still use keyboard/mouse on the ground, but the gamepad for space battles, which works pretty much like RC flying. It supports Windows and Linux, but not Mac. Everything worked with the gamepad in xbox mode for Steam Big Picture mode and in the game, except for the Dpad (zoom & weapon slot) while flying (even though it worked in circular menu). Keyboard/mouse or joystick were configurable in the game, but not the gamepad, so I made some settings with the Dpad in keyboard settings, looked for that xml config file, modified the gamepad xml file, and then everything worked with the gamepad.

Been playing The Bard's Tale from the Humble Bundle and it is hilariously AWESOME!
In my opinion, I would call it a AAA game from the PS2-XBOX1 generation. The developers, inXile-Entertainment, created all the Baldurs Gates, Torment, Icewind Dale, Fallout, Starfleet Academy and more. Really top notch creative game developers.
I highly recommend it!
bought this on steam Halloween sale:
Natural Selection 2
Left For Dead 2
Also installed 2 free to play games:
No More Room In Hell
I played all the Baldur's Gate games about a decade ago and to this day I would say The Baldur's Gate Trilogy is the most epic game I have ever played! Started playing it in 1999 and finished playing Throne of Bhaal (the third instalment in the trilogy, it was meant to be Baldur's Gate 3 but ended up as an expansion with content as large as the host game itself!) in 2002.
Hopefully they throw Icewind Dale and Torment in Linux-Steam as well as I never got a chance to play those games!
I have just downloaded Left for Dead 2 from steam .. not my faourite game but at least it runs native and is fun.
As a sde note I bought UT2004 Midway edition to run from the linux Installer.. but the the installer crashes with an error .
Anyone know where i could get help with this.
This my faourite game and do not wish to install windows to run it.
I have to use windows at work.. at home i dont even want to dual boot.
