Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I installed Steam with Winetricks and used Steam to install tf2, but when I tried to boot, all I see is the logos and then a black screen. What did I do wrong?

Try steam for Linux and start it like this: LOCALE=C /usr/bin/steam –  Alexander Nov 14 '12 at 3:41
