    Question Team Fortress 2 Black blocky screen

    Hey all,

    Unusual problem since running Ubuntu 14.04 x64.

    When I launch Team Fortess 2 the menu has lots of black blocks. The game play is also black and blocky.

    Any ideas?

    System specs:
    Intel i7 3770
    16GB RAM
    Integrated Intel HD4000
    Code:
    terry@hades ~ $ lspci | grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v2/3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
    Kernel
    Code:
     3.13.0-24-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Fri May 2 23:30:00 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    Any advice appreciated.

    The x-0swat PPA, https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat...aphics-updates will install the latest Intel open-source drivers. All Intel video drivers are open-source, which is a Good Thing that Intel is doing.

    Thanks for the reply, I current have the latest intel drivers installed. I used the Intel Graphics Installer to install version 1.05. Graphics still the same black blocky.

    This would seem to be a problem you should bring up with Steam, whose game it is. They have an interest in seeing that users can play their games, even the free-to-play ones.
