SteamPlay on Linux Mint/Ubuntu not working so well

#1

Hi there , I tried running this with SteamPlay , using Proton 4.11-8 it works up until the point of spawning and then just gave a black screen , had to manually kill all processes afterwards with one process taking a kill -9 to end.

i noted that some people have managed to get this to work with proton so hopefully with this thread we can all figure out what the magic configuration is for that !

also how do i post log files here?

system specs :
Distro:Linux Mint 19.2 Tina
Kernel:5.2.0-050200-generic
RAM:32 GB
GPU Driver:NVIDIA 435.21
GPU:NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070
CPU:AMD Ryzen 7 2700 Eight-Core

Seems Kaiju* had a similar system to yours and worked without configuration, just an older graphics driver and Kernel:

A really dumb question but it still interests me: Are you usng the Steam Version of Infinity:Battlescape, or are you trying to use the standalone version together with proton?
