Buggy Linux Client

Hello,

Running gmod on Linux for the first time in ages I’ve noticed a number of problems:

  1. Can’t open the console with the tilde key even though it’s enabled.
  2. Unable to type in the Steam overlay. I can click but keyboard function is dead.
  3. Game just closes with no error upon joining a certain server at sending client info (185.38.148.13:27035) - it’s probably dumping so I’ll have to run it through terminal and see what the error is.

They don’t happen on any other Valve game.

Fedora 24 Workstation, Kernel 4.6.6. GTX 770, i7 4770k.

Have you tried reinstalling Garry’s Mod?

No but I only just installed it. That’s the Steam equivalent of have you tried rebooting

I recommend you either :
Verify the game cache multiple times or delete a dll in the gmod directory that is despised by the community.
