Strange stutter and no config.cfg (Ubuntu?)

When I look slightly up all my textures seem to drag acros the screen causing lag and making the game unplayable, also in my setting there appears to be no sign of a config.cfg.

config.cfg is now client.cfg. and would seam render option is treating everything as 0.1. try creating a cfg folder and putting client.cfg in it.

Example client.cfg file:

This seems like it would work but when I start the game it resets my render to 0.

Anyone have more ideas?
