GMod Linux is Broken

I open up GMod under Ubuntu 14.04, and it either immediately crashes, or it opens up, and crashes during the initial loading screen, with the pure blue background and the black “Loading” box.

Yes, I realize that this is a repeat. I’m posting this mainly to provide a place for an actual solution to be posted, if someone finds one. “Just run it under WINE” is simply cringe-worthy for an application that claims native Linux support. I’d have to run two separate versions of steam, and gyaaaaargh. No offense to the developers though, I understand that you are probably hard at work fixing this.

The only fix is to wait for an update that fixes it. No ETAs. Soon.

The main thing is so that we know that the developers are aware that it is an actual issue and can’t be solved by: “just fix your broken addons”.
