That will only remove the steam installer. Steam itself, and all games installed through it, are not part of the packaging system. You will also need to delete the ~/.local/share/Steam/ folder and its contents, to fully remove Steam and its games from your system. If you chose to install any games in alternate directories not under ~/.local/share/Steam/, ...

The Tomb Raider patch is supposed to work fine with Wine 1.5. Because I needed more recent unpatched versions of Wine for other applications, and hard drive space is not an issue here, I decided to install and run TR 2013 from a custom Wine installation using a virtual drive from playonlinux . Playonlinux provides a version of Wine (1.5.28-TombRaider) ...

Instead of running all of Steam with optirun I would suggest starting Steam normally and editing the program settings to use the launch command of "optirun %command%" (without the quotes). This will limit the memory of your graphics card to being used only by the game itself. I'm not sure if that will help with the other issues you are having but it may ...

If the partition is NTFS or FAT, you'll have to mount it with the correct permissions for files to be executable. Use the lsblk command to identify your USB drive (let's call it /dev/sdb1). You can either mount it manually (I picked a folder called usbdrive, pick what you want): sudo umount /dev/sdb1 mkdir ~/usbdrive sudo mount -t vfat -o ...

To change the default Download folder, Just quit Steam (important!) and move the entire Steam folder to another location mv ~/.local/share/Steam /new/path and start Steam again. It says something like "can't find Steam, did you move it?" and than you can choose the new folder location.

open a terminal and run "sudo apt-get install curl" then "sudo apt-get install -f" then try installing. If it gives another dependency then replace curl in the first command with the name of the new dependency

That is perfectly workable and is in fact what I do for my Steam on Wine. The SteamApps folder is shared with the one for Steam on Windows. You can either create a symbolic link (which is how I first used it) or add it properly as a second library folder (which is how I use it now). I haven't had any problems with it. Games installed in Wine show up fine in ...

For Team Fortress 2, Doat 2 and any other game for that matter, in 99.99% of the time, the same requirements they show for the "PC", will be for Linux. I quote PC because PC does not mean Windows, it means Personal Computer, but hey, they are the ones that mention it like some Non-Linux thing ^^. For example, let's look at both games You will notice the ...

The Steam Store supplies system requirements towards the bottom of every game's store page. Just compare your specs to the requirements supplied. Personally, I would have to wager that your computer is gonna have a hard time running either game. Processor aside, 2GB of RAM is not enough nowadays. (Thankfully, RAM is generally inexpensive) Store Pages TF2 ...

Traditionally speaking the desktop manager (LightDM in Ubuntu's case) would offer you some sort of choice at login. Crouton seems to be hacked together in such a way that there is no login or choice of desktop. It's just manually passing session files to xinit. You could probably expand on that (here's how the startgnome script is called), but we're getting ...

You may have a Steam shortcut on your desktop. If so, you can right click on that shortcut, select Properties, and modify the command to include primusrun. You should insert it just before the wine command, with a space to either side of primusrun

This one would be impossible. Last time I checked, Internet Explorer 9 does not want to play nice with WINE. Unless you can find a way to hack it, not possible. Sorry.

I have the same problem on my laptop HP Compaq nx8220 with Kernel 3.13.0-24 to 3.13.0-30 (in Ubuntu 14.04 and Linux Mint 17). This laptop ran Ubuntu and now Mint since 8 years without overheating problems. Try to boot from an older Live-DVD or USB stick with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS or Linux Mint 13. If this will fix your CPU fan then a bug in kernel 3.13.x might ...

Funnily enough, I was just playing XCOM on Ubuntu 14.04 earlier today. Excellent game. That being said, try looking in your .steam/steam/SteamApps/common/XCom-Enemy-Unknown folder for "XCOMLauncher". Also, make sure "game.x86_64" and "xcom.sh" exist at .steam/steam/SteamApps/common/XCom-Enemy-Unknown/binaries/linux.

It seems that instead of using the default drivers that come with Ubuntu (the drivers I recommend using), you are using Intel's open-source drivers. If you have Intel's drivers installed, you probably have a program called "Linux Graphics Installer" or something similar that is an option if you open System Settings and scroll all the way down. Use that ...

Don't listen to steam. Make sure you have direct rendering by checking glxinfo | grep "direct rendering". If that says No, you have a problem then.

are you able to logout?? (You have to go to exit on steamOS and select Exit Steam). If you can you can switch your desktop environment here: If you can't logout try running gnome-session-quit --no-prompt and see if that makes you able to logout or try killall gnome-session. If that's not the problem you could try running: sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm and ...

I usually resolve these problems by mounting the default folder to another location. That way it's completely transparent to the application as it just use the normal filesystem (no symlink). You can do it temporarly with mount: sudo mount -o bind /your/preffered/folder /home/you/.steam/steam Or make it permanent in /etc/fstab: /your/preffered/folder ...

Referring to this, and past experiences, ClamAV will throw this if it find something packed by something that could used by those that make malware - this can include installed exe's, dlls etc. This probably is just designed to make sure you know something potentially dangerous is there that it might not be able to detect - e.g. from here: Packed ...

Try minimizing and going to the sound settings from the upper right volume control, then switch from your preferred audio device to some other, and then back. This works for me when I oddly lose sound. It has something to do with switching programs I think.

The problem is your video is not supported by the game. Try running the game with a supported video card. Graphics: Radeon HD5450 or better; dedicated 256 MB or higher (GMA Cards not supported - See below) Source:http://www.dontstarvegame.com/specs

I finally found out what the problem was. Recently, this Ubuntu Launchpad bug report came to light. It states that the kernel regressed from .24 to .25. What I did then was go to the mainline kernel builds of Ubuntu and installed 3.13.11 as that's what the bug report stated as a fix: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.13.11-trusty/ You ...
