    Hey, I'm running xubuntu x64 and steam, When I try to open a game up.. steam breifly loads, then flashes black for half a second and than goes back to the desktop. Tested on counter strike: source and Team Fortress 2.

    I am using the GFX drivers from the official repo's.

    Not enough information.
    Try running from the command line, see if you get any errors.

    First, do not post your steam id/api in the log :)

    Segmentation fault usually indicates a bug in the code.
    Looks like a bug in one of CS scripts.

    Can you see what happens on line 72 in hl2.sh file?
    What kind of code is executed there?

    Hey, thanks

    snippet from hl2.sh
    Code:
    	fi
    	STATUS=$?
    done
    exit $STATUS
    
    Line 72 = "done"
