I have recently installed ubuntu on my system, which has a Amd radeon hd 7850. The fglrx drivers installed just fine, and the system detects the right card (Pitcairn 7850) after playing with amnesia on native steam without encountering any problems, I've decided to install windows steam using playonlinux. I've installed the game Counter Strike Global Offensive, but when it boots it detects a ati radeon hd 3200 series and says that it doesn't support the game, and then it crashes. Here are the System Info on Steam: Scheda video: Driver non rilevato

I should also add that after it crashes the screen kind of "shrinks in size": the desktop only fills part of the screen and i have to restart unity through the console.

Why not use the native Steam client and native counter striker for Linux instead of running the windows version on wine.
