Issues with PlayOnLinux+Team Fortress 2/Portal
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 18, 2010
Hello everyone, I'm new to these forums and am eager to learn more and more about this wonderful operating system. My current problem arose when I installed PlayOnLinux, I followed an online tutorial which guided me on how to install, what packages were needed alongside this program. That was fine and it installed smoothly, and proceeded to install Steam; which is where it all started...I managed to sign in and Download my pre-purchased copy of Team Fortress 2 onto my computer, ran the installation/configuration prefix for the game: and no matter what i try, it just does not load. Same problem for Portal :S
Anyone else had this problem? please share any fixes please
P.S yes i checked whether i had the right compatability
Issues with Team Fortress 2 dedicated server on Ubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 19, 2012
So I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on a minimal image (so I can run it on a Terminal without any GUI) and downloaded the files for a dedicated server on Linux for Team Fortress 2. When I run the command ./srcds_run (with other parameters) I get a segmentation fault when the game tries to start.
I was informed to run ldd for the binary and it says it's missing libtier0.so and libvstdlib.so, which are in the /orangebox/bin directory to begin with, so I don't know why it's not recognizing the two files.
What should I do about this issue?
OpenGL Error Steam | Team Fortress 2
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 24, 2014
After installing and running Team Fortress 2 I am displayed a message box of the following:
Error!: Could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glGetError'! Either your video card is unsupported, or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated.
I have installed drivers from the official AMD website for my AMD Radeon HD 7500 Series Graphics Card.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. When answering please try to be specific as possible as I have been on Ubuntu for less than a week and am a bit of a noob.

Team Fortress 2 problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 31, 2013
I have just installed TF2 in Ubuntu 12.04 and when I try to run the game an error message pops up saying "Could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glColorMaskIndexedEXT'! Either your video card is unsupported, or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated." For graphics I have Gallium 0.4 on ATI RV515 and I installed libgl1-mesa-dev. Is there anything I can do, or is my graphics card just too old?
Team Fortress 2 Black Screen of Death
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 15, 2013
Hello everyone!!! This is my first time that i have used the Ubuntu forums. I apologize if i may sound like i have never used a computer before, but i have PLENTY of experience with Windows. However, i am very new to the Ubuntu OS, since i just got this computer yesterday. Enough pleasantries, let us get on with what i have to ask.
Every time i startup TF2 (Team Fortress 2), the Valve Logo and the Source Logos appear, with the usual startup sound. But they appear on the top right of the screen instead of being in the center of the screen, PLUS they appear upside-down (dunno if this is a glitch or bug but...), while followed by a totally black screen, then followed by returning to the Steam interface about a minute to a minute and a half later. Is there a way to fix this without hassle or anything like that? I just want to be able to play Team Fortress 2. Also, i am having trouble with launching Minecraft, but i will ask that in a later thread...

Running Steam and Team Fortress 2 in virtual environment
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 29, 2010
Is there a good VM program that can run either Mac or Windows XP and be able to play Team Fortress 2 on Steam?
I use it to trade items between myself and other dummy accounts, but I haven't been able to find a program that's both easy to use and supports DirectX. Oracle VirtualBox is the best I've been using HUD wise, but doesn't support DirectX and playing with stuff like QEMU and VMWare is difficult to use and install.
I'm using Windows 7 64-bit and tried using Virtual to run WinXP and Mint Linux\Wine without success.
Tell me which one is the best to play DirectX games on, even if it is sluggish.
Team Fortress 2
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 11, 2008
I just installed Ubuntu on Friday and have been trying to get some of my most frequently used apps working via Wine. I can run Steam, and I can launch TF2, but when it gets past the Valve logo, it never displays the loading screen and when it gets to the menu, I can hear the music and when I move the mouse, I can hear it clicking over the menu items. However, the screen remains black and my only recourse is to hit F10 to quit.
Now, I didn't install TF2 through Wine. I re-installed Steam via Wine, then used links to point to the correct folders (like steamapps, for instance). I wouldn't think this would be the problem, but who knows?
Did I miss any necessary steps? Thanks.
Team Fortress 2 on Ubuntu 10.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 24, 2011
Hello, Ubuntu Forum Members!
I installed WINE 1.2.2 and I downloaded the installation package for Steam on Windows. Steam installed correctly, at least, I think it did; it's letting be browse all the appropriate pages and such. I then installed Team Fortress 2 through Steam, but when I click 'Play', it will not launch.
What should I do?
Team fortress 2 display settings on low on a new computer build.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 22, 2013
Hello, I recently built a new computer (my first) using an AMD A10-5800K with a MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 motherboard and other parts... it's running ubuntu 12.04but while playing team fortress 2 on steam I found the recommended setting for detail was low. Everything else was at high except that... Which seems odd for what is on the APU. Shouldn't that game run at all max setting with that APU? Thanks.
As an added note I did not do anything in the BIOS, just installed Ubuntu and went on my way. I don't see how that would affect anything... But I'm no expert.
Wine & Team Fortress 2 & My Microphone
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 7, 2009
So, I got The Orange Box (Half-Life 2 + Episodes 1 and 2, Portal, and TF2) working perfectly under wine. The only bugs I have are being unable to view MOTDs (not big enough of a problem for me to complain about), and my microphone working sporadically, if at all.
Basically, here's how it works: I start up TF2, I connect to a server, I talk, and everyone tells me to stop talking. I put "voice_loopback 1" in the game console, and, they aren't joking, my mic is terrible. It was a sort of a staticy sound in 8.10, but now it more sounds like I'm talking under water. But after a while, I can say one sentence before it messes up again. I've tried every possible in game option, I've Googled for the answer, and I searched the forums. Some people have suggested removing PulseAudio for similar problems, but I don't know if that would help.
It's a Wine problem, my mic works fine in Skype. I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
