I haven’t started Garry’s Mod in a while, but I tried today and found myself unable to start the game. After the “preparing to start” dialog disappears, nothing further happens, but the hl2_linux process stays alive and it will show me as in-game until I kill it manually.
I’ve already tried reinstalling gmod, I renamed my GMod folder, told steam to delete the local content and re-downloaded the game. I did not do anything else(clean install), but it still didn’t start properly.
I have also tried it on a different computer, but got the same results.
Since it doesn’t work on either of my computers, which both run Linux, but it works for other people in my friends list, I think this may be a Linux-related problem. However, I have no idea how to even start debugging this.
How can I get it to work?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal
