I just got the Humble Bundle 5 and am suffering severe graphical defects on Braid and Bastion. Both games run but do not display properly. Sound, mouse etc. work fine. Here are some screens of Bastion:

Bastion graphic glitch Bastion graphic glitch

I couldn't get a screen of Braid. I think its main problem is alpha support (all textures, even stair texttures etc., remain square and overlap the character). I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 with a Mesa Intel 915g graphics card (according to Amnesia :), which has no support whatsoever for my card). Is there anything I can install/fix to remedy these graphical problems, or do I need to fork over the cash for a new graphics card?

Same problem here. Have you found a solution? I couldn't find anything anywhere, but if you fixed it, maybe you could add the solution here as an answer for other people? Cheers! – stragu Jul 15 '12 at 13:49
No, I never found a solution. Sorry! – makuto Jul 27 '12 at 16:51

This helped me.

I already have it. – makuto Jun 15 '12 at 21:29
I found this question and answer by googling "ubuntu bastion black", and your apt-get command fixed the problem for me. Bravo! – Chris Moore Jun 20 '12 at 8:08
This didn't fix it for me. I noticed that, for Bastion, the problem only happens on an external monitor. – stragu Jul 15 '12 at 13:49
My son's running ubuntu 12.04 on an an old iMac with ati graphics and adding this library did the trick. – Henk Langeveld Dec 27 '13 at 10:29
