after my ubuntu was updated to 20.04 shortly, my Zeus + Posidon game, which i used to play via steam running on wine, is not starting any more. There is just a black screen.

I start the steam via:

wine ~/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Steam/drive_c/Program\ Files/Steam/steam.exe -no-browser +open steam://open/minigameslist

which outputs:

ILocalize::AddFile() failed to load file "public/steambootstrapper_english.txt".

Looks like steam didn't shutdown cleanly, scheduling immediate update check

and starts steam as usual. When trying to start the game, i get a black screen only, sometimes even not able to Alt+Tab so i have to restart.

What can i do to diagnose the problem and get Zeus to run again?

In the meantime i found out, that the problem seemed to be issues with the nvidia driver. After manually installing a suitable driver, everything works fine again.
