Experimental Branch: Linux not loading

Currently getting Error "Failed to start game (missing executable)

System: ubuntu 12.04 LTS (64-bit)
Processor: AMD Phenom™ II X4 B55
Graphix: GeForce GT 430/PCIe/SSE2

The steam support suggestion of deleting appcache doesn’t solve this.
Garry’s suggestion of launching from the folder also did not work.

Attempting to run from command line:
Command line output: There is no data folder

Please post here if you or anyone you know has found a way around this issue.

Same here.

I’m sure it’s known. It’s like they didn’t compile the Linux binary, only windows.

Linux ---- 3.11.0-12-generic #19-Ubuntu SMP Fri May 2 16:20:46 UTC x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Ubuntu variant.

Im sure they are working on it!

Yea, that is me.

Wasn’t working with Mac either.

+1 same issue

Found the bug, posted on the bug section : http://forum.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1390969
I post it here too so the dev will see it, I hope it’ll be fixed soon

Well, if they were working on it i think they would found it by now (it took me 30min to find it only because I didn’t know strace so I needed to search)
I mostly think that because we are really not much playing on linux it’s not worth for them spending time now that they have a lot to do

its called the experimental branch for a reason. Doesn’t it say something like “do not use this”
