>I bought a new computer for myself, and installed Kubuntu on it. I installed Steam on it, bought the orange box, tried to run TF2, and it didn't work. When I started it up, t showed the VALVE logo and played their little jingle, showed the Source logo, then the screen went blank and nothing happened :x . It opened it in the Konsole (Terminal) and it gave me this when the screen (on the desktop that I had TF2 on) went blank:
>wineserver crashed, please enable coredumps (ulimit -c unlimited) and restart.
>(There were a few error messages before that, something about GLshaders, but the above seemed to be the main thing.) So I looked online, and other people have been having the same problem. They were told to downgrade Wine to a more stable version. So I am posting this for 3 reasons:
>1. To get extra confirmation on what I should do.
>2. To see if the solution to the other cases is the same for this.
>3. To find out how to put the solution into action (e.g. downgrade Wine)
>Please Help! [Exclamation]  [Crying or Very sad]

Oh, there's a Ubuntu bug about this, too, with some information... I just looked and I can't find it now. Sorry.
