    Got my invite. Now if only I actually had a desktop Linux box...

    Still searching for a good Mac-Mini-like Linux box.

Hopefully no more major "upgrades" for a while.
    This. A thousand times this. But never fear, there are forum fanboys who will insist you don't know what you're talking about.

    If you haven't seen them, check out the Habey line of cases. It's about as close as you can get to the form/size/asthetics of the mac mini:

    Salut,

    I am on Debian Wheezy/sid 64bit.

    I haven't tested the beta version of TF2(it didn't show up in my list) but the "normal" one and I got the same problem. After looking after a solution in many posts, I found and try this:

    I added these two lines in .bashrc (the user one not root)

    export LANG=C;
    export LC_NUMERIC=C;

    Then, I was able to start and play TF2. The only issue I encourted was about missing letters(replaced by blank spaces) in some text like "W lcome in ..." but TF2 ran quiet well.

    For information, check if you client version is up to date(directly in the Steam client), I did it and it worked.

    I hope it will help you.

    Enjoy,

    A+

    I guess I'll just create a separate Ubuntu partition for testing

    Personally not touching Steam myself, but in the case of TF2 I heard that things are apparently running fine: http://www.gamingonlinux.com/index.p...ge-2#post-6971

    Works great here with Intel HD 4000 graphics and Trisquel GNU/Linux.

    Well, FPS could be higher, but it is playable if you set graphics options a little bit down from "full max everything".

    Running fine here on Radeon HD 6970 with FOSS drivers. A few graphical glitches here and there, but I'll bet they are gone if I update drivers (kernel + newest mesa from git).
