  • Identical loading bugs on 2 different HW setups; not on Windows

    I have two separate machines: My desktop has an i3-5010U with Intel HD graphics 5500 on OpenGL 4.6 and is running Ubuntu 20.04.3. My laptop has a i5-6200U with Intel HD graphics 520 (also on OpenGL 6.4) and is dual-booting Ubuntu 20.04.3 and Windows 10.

    Starting from between 4 and 6 days ago, I became unable to load into multiplayer matches on Linux on both machines, although the same effect was not present on my laptop when run under Windows 10.

    The bug: after I hit "accept" on a multiplayer match, the main UI fades out and the match picking UI begins to load, and then gets stuck. I am able to see the chat console in the center of the screen (although it never shifts to the right side, which happens during a successful load) and the blank 2x5 hero icon placeholders in the top, but nothing more. My party members report me not connecting. After 10-30s, I assume that I'm kicked back to the main UI, and my screen goes black - but takes an abnormally long amount of time to load the main UI, at least 3 minutes (and in some cases it might not have finished after 5, at which point I force-killed the game).

    I have a software development background and am willing to install debug builds, read console logs, or do other things of that nature. I am not sure what other information I could provide to help at this point (just tell me what would be useful and I'll provide it), other than installing Dota on Proton on Linux, which is in progress.

    Thank you in advance for any help you might give; I hope to be as useful a bug-reporter as possible.
