    Steam games quit right after launching

    Hi,
    I've searched the forum but didn't find answer to my problem. When I try to launch any game in steam (tried Counter-Strike Source/1.6 Half-life 1&2) it shows "preparing to launch" window, then game loading screen shows for a blink of an eye, and I'm back to steam.
    I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 x64 with bumblebee and nvidia 331 drivers. glxgears/spheres work just fine, steam doesn't report any errors when launched with optirun. This is output I get from terminal:

    amk@amk-notebook ~ $ optirun steam

    The program 'hl2_linux' received an X Window System error.
    This probably reflects a bug in the program.
    The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
    (Details: serial 136 error_code 3 request_code 15 minor_code 0)
    (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
    that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
    To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
    option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
    backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

    Re: Steam games quit right after launching

    what does this return?
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C display
    you need to get your drivers running correctly on your system first.

    Hi thanks for replying. Here's terminal output:

    Does it mean that system only recognizes intel card?

    Here's a tutorial for installing bumblebee and drivers that I used and followed step by step

    Re: Steam games quit right after launching

    i have no experience with bumblebee or dual graphics. from what it looks like, i don't see your nvidia gfx chip. are you sure it's enabled in the bios? did you receive any errors during the bumblebee install?

    I used to have an issue that looked a lot like yours and it turned out to be all about drivers

    Re: Steam games quit right after launching

    video driver issue- fix / install different video drivers then fully reinstall steam... i would assume.
    **ALSO assuming you've plugged your monitor into the nvidia output and not the onboard intel output.. ..

    331 nvidia drivers dont work well for me- im still on 319- with 13.10 from official nvidia site. they seem to be smoothest on my 560gtx idk why

    so essentially the easiest fix- boot to single user mode easiest- or just kill your xserver from tty{1-5}
    remove any nvidia drivers you installed with apt-get
    uninstall steam - - or at the very least delete your game files - if you like to be thorough -
    get the 319 drivers
    Code:
     wget http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/319.49/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.49.run
    make em runable
    Code:
     chmod +x ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.49.run
    run em, when prompted to install dkms kern modules, select the default No option -
    Code:
     ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.49.run
    update and upgrade packages
    Code:
     apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade -y
    rebooterize the system
    Code:
     init 6
    if any issues you may need to perform steps from here: https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers

    once your desktop and steam are all happy- try to rerun the games- test on a freshly installed game... then test on a previously(prior to grfx driver change) installed game..
