Steam games won't launch in OpenSUSE 12.3

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello.

Like the title says, my games in Steam won't launch. I use OpenSUSE 12.3 KDE 64-bit with the proprietary AMD Catalyst drivers. Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance.

Did they work before or is this a new install of Steam -or- SUSE? Have you tried launching them from the terminal? If so were there any errors reported?

I'm not sure how to launch them from the terminal. But I got CS:Source working, apparently they don't like symlinks. :/

you should try the steam forums, or since it's somewhat supported opensuse forums. steam for linux is already fragmented, and game by game.
start steam from terminal and monitor output if game doesn't start or crashes. posting or checking official forums for similar errors helps refine games or the steam platform itself.
