I got a bit of a problem here. I just recently wiped my HP laptop from windows 8 and installed Ubuntu, I want to play garrys mod on steam but all my workshop items are re-downloading. I didnt want to sit and wait so I decide to work on something else on my computer in the mean time. But when I go to check on the downloads in-game, the game somehow closes itself along with steam and I have to start up steam again. Is there any work around or something? I figured since garrys mod is compatible with Linux I thought it would be fine, but I guess not.
