    Then you can try "cl_showfps 1". It did not start on my netbook with 1024x600 fullscreen due to a bug, but just edited the hl.conf that is created on start and set it to windowed, then it gave me over 30 fps. That's really nice...
    Ah fantastic! I had tried setting -game cstrike on half life and copying some files from half life to counter strike folder but its so long since the WON days and my messing around with mods!
    Had also given up and got halfway through Half-Life

    Thank you am now playing Counter-Strike in Linux

    It has been a good day. Have to admit I like these little surprises Valve puts out. The sudden open beta of TF2 Linux port gave me the same feeling; they sure know how to make a gamer feel good :P

    YES! Thank you valve, this is awesome.

    I think that valve doesn't want people saying "well why should I get the steambox, when less than half of my huge steam library runs on it", so they are working on at least having all *THEIR* stuff in there properly.

    For me, btw my linux games/all games ratio is 33/100.

    This. If it was available outside of Steam, then it would be worth looking into. But as it is, eh.

    I guess it doesn't like Xubuntu and AMD?. I clicked Play and nothing happens. =(

    Edit: nvm it started after a restart of Steam. =p Runs great!

    For those that can't look up/down:
    Do you use a Locale that separates numbers with commas instead of points?
    In the half life config m_pitch "0,022000" needs to be changed to m_pitch "0.022000".

    sed -i 's/m_pitch "0,022000"/m_pitch "0.022000"/g' ~/Steam/SteamApps/common/Half-Life/config.cfg

    That reminds me of
    Code:
    $ LC_ALL=C seq 0 0.5 1
    0.0
    0.5
    1.0
    $ LC_ALL=de_DE.utf8 seq 0 0.5 1
    0,0
    0,5
    1,0
