A Heroes of Newerth developer posted this fix on the HoN reddit: The XML library we use has a new dependency on Ubuntu 15.04 which requires a newer version of the C++ standard library than we use. The internal band-aid fix for this is to grab the libxml2.so.2 from a 12.04.5 and drop it into the HoN/libs-x86_64 directory and then HoN will be able to be ...

This might work: cd ~/steamcmd ./steamcmd.sh https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/SteamCMD#Linux.2FOS_X

DirectX is a collection of a runtime and drivers. As Wine does not support the installation of Micro$oft Windows drivers, you cannot install just any version of DirectX. :-( Therefore, DirectX support needs to be enabled inside the Wine environment by the Wine developers. For more info on the current development of DirectX under wine, read this wine FAQ. ...

After multiple search attempts on the internet and after LOTS of trial and error, I can safely conclude that the main problem is the PPA xorg-edgers. If you have similar problems, you should remove whatever drivers you have from xorg-edgers and then ppa-purge it. If you don't know how to do it, then here's how. Install ppa-purge by... sudo apt-get install ...

You need the 32 bit libGL drivers (libgl1-mesaa-dri:i386). You can issue this command via terminal, sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 If you already have it, try reinstalling, sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 Restart your computer and try again. If that doesn't work, check out this: Error loading libGL.so.1

In the first case, the game complains about the absence of libtcmalloc_minimal.so.4 library. Probably, Steam or the game have their version of this lib inside the directory. Anyway, you can try install it from the Ubuntu repository. I don't now if it uses the 32 bits or 64 bits version, but you can try: For the 64 bits version sudo apt-get install ...

I've had exactly the same problem 1 hour ago. To fix it, edit the file .steam/steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/csgo.sh Before the two lines that start with ${DEBUGGER} "${GAMEROOT}"/${GAMEEXE} you must add "primusrun" (maybe only one line is necessary, didn't tested): primusrun ${DEBUGGER} "${GAMEROOT}"/${GAMEEXE} -x "$ARGSFILE" and ...

It seems to have been fixed by using a liveCD of Vivid Vervet (15.04 64-bit) found here to install 15.04. Managed to play both FTL and Necrodancer with no adverse effect at all, compared to almost immediate distortion in Necrodancer beforehand.

The above answer should work, although I personally ran into some problems when attempting it. What worked for me was running the install from the terminal, rather than downloading the .deb from steampowered.com. All I did was run sudo apt-get install steam -y to get it installed. It loaded the EULA in the terminal, press tab a couple of times to select ok, ...

open a terminal and run: sudo apt-get remove --purge libglapi-mesa:i386 libcheese-gtk23 libcheese7 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get install libglapi-mesa:i386 libcheese-gtk23 libcheese7 sudo apt-get install steam

In my experience, Ubuntu, despite being fairly power-efficient, can consume RAM quite quickly, and once it starts using swap, I've found that it bogs down immensely. I'd check your RAM usage using the system monitor (run it from the Unity dash or with gnome-system-monitor in the terminal). If RAM looks like an issue, you can try trimming down background ...

Sounds like you've got a bunch of background services running... smbd and nmbd smbd and nmbd are daemon of Samba Process. Do you really need to export smb share on windows or other machine. If not! why are these processes running? You can safely kill these processes and disable them from starting automatically when machine boots the next time. Telnet ...

I don't have enough rep to comment unfortunately, you simply open the startup applications app and add the command as /usr/bin/xinput --set-prop "8" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 1.5. Then, at login the script will be run.

I think I found the answer, but not sure how to make it permanent(I think it resets on reboot?) First, do the above xinput list and get the id of your device. Not sure why, but there are 2 mice coming up with id=8 and id=10. I picked 8, and it worked. I ran the following line xinput --set-prop "8" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 1.5, with the value of ...

I did find a solution to this problem. I installed Windows in a virtual machine, attached the USB mouse device to the VM, then traced the USB traffic with Wireshark and isolated the control command that the official Logitech driver used to set the polling rate. (This was quite helpful in pointing me in the right direction: ...

Steam didn't work for me either from the Software Centre. I just used sudo apt-get install steam. This just worked.

When I say "run" I'm referring to running the command in Terminal which can be opened by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T Try running sudo apt-get install steam That should work, if not try this (adapted from the Steam Github README): run sudo apt-get install gdebi-core run wget -O ~/steam.deb https://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb. run sudo gdebi ...

You should probably download the .deb from Steam instead of searching for it on the Software Center. There are two Steam applications, and only the .deb will give the right one to install. http://store.steampowered.com/about/

I've tested on Ubuntu 14.04.2 (the same that cannot run the game obtained from GOG) via Steam and the game runs perfectly fine. Also, consider updating your system, as when I wrote to GOG about why this happens their response was, that this is a common issue to anyone running 14.04.2 due to how the distro is packaged and it containing Utopic graphics ...

You need to install The Silent Patch to fix the resolution issue.

This solved the problem for me: The Microsoft keyboard I used was recognized as a joystick. When I plug in another keyboard it works fine.

Actually, it's entirely possible to play Windows games on Linux, as long as the game is supported by Wine and your hardware doesn't meltdown loading it. There are two ways to go about installing. I would recommend installing WINE and PlayOnLinux to make installing GTA:SA easier.(NOTE: Even with it being 'easier', you may have to work at it to get things ...

According to the wiki SteamCMD depends on lib32gcc1 and lib32stdc++6. So: sudo apt-get install lib32gcc1 lib32stdc++6 should install theses packages.

Ubuntu does NOT have the same video rendering libraries as Windows (DirectX, OpenGL, Direct3D). Therefore, the developers of a hypothetical game have to redesign their game for the other platform. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was never meant to be designed for Linux (because in 2000, Linux was really for developers and not for casual use), so you won't be ...

I had the same problem with a Logitech G302. Planetary annihilation mouse lag problem Unfortunately it seems that the Logitech mouse does not support reducing the mouse polling rate. But if it is really necessary you can reduce it by hardware by connecting your mouse to a slower usb port. Using evhz, I noticed the mouse polling rate reduced from 1000Hz ...

The hardest part is working out which IP ranges belong to which country. There may be a way of doing this yourself but (at least for IPv4) the easiest way of doing this at the moment is using a service like ip2location. They'll give you an entire list. They'll actually give you a list in iptables format. Get what you need, run them (to block them ...

Although Steam is available and officially supported for Ubuntu, not all of the games sold there are. Visit the store page of the games you want to keep playing and look out for the system requirements: If it has a Linux tab, then you should be fine. Else, your game will most likely not run on Ubuntu, at the most with Wine, but don't have too high ...

Steam uses cloud to save your game data so it doesn't matter which OS you use, the necessary thing is that you are logged in as your steam user.

Not every Windows program is working on Wine. You can check the list of supported programs here. There's also PlayOnLinux, a software that uses Wine but it is easier thanks to a very intuitive GUI. Remember, sometimes it's better to use open-source software (like LibreOffice) than emulate Windows closed-source programs (like the MS Office suite).

If you use steam you can enable this option in the steam overlay settings and it should work with any game that works with the steam overlay. It lets you choose what corner of the screen you want the counter to be in and I recommend using the high contrast color setting so that you can easily see the fps counter at all times.
