I have a problem with amnesia game. After Intro and clicking continue button few times, when game is supposed to start it crashes. Here is console output:

I had same problem (Ubuntu 12.04, Ati 6450, gallium drivers). The game is working now, after install this library:

sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0

Cheers. It helped with this error. Now I'got some other:P *** glibc detected *** ./Amnesia.bin64: corrupted double-linked list: 0x000000000b117f40 *** –  james Jun 4 '12 at 17:26

Try using the additional drivers tool in system setting to search for proprietary drivers you might be able to install. Installing ATI graphics cards(ATI Catalyst) drivers and rebooting helped in my situation.

this assumes the OP has an ATI/AMD graphics card. –  hexafraction Jun 1 '12 at 22:48

@RobertArkenin you are correct. Another user (I've lost their name so sorry for not crediting whomever you are) also suggested a useful edit so I've updated my answer based on both pieces of feedback. –  Garry Cairns Jun 1 '12 at 23:00

Deinstalling pulseaudio did the trick for me. But keep in mind that the sound-mixer widget might vanish. You probably should install a ALSA-based-mixer after removing pulseaudio.
