  • The game should work with the proprietary drivers. Don't put too much hope on the open source driver. Your card is probably powerful enough to give a better framerate with the open source driver than the HD3000 would.

      I am on debian jessie with awm, I have steam installed but I have the open source ati drivers, should I bother trying to download dota2? Would it be playable with the proprietary ATI drivers? How about the intel HD3000?
      You can only try it. I was using Ubuntu 13.04 and a HD5-series on-board AMD graphics , and it was impossible to play, slideshow even on slowest settings . The equivalent graphics chip with Windows XP [on an older machine I have ] is light years ahead on Dota2 game performance.

      I think on Windows, the graphics driver code is closer to the hardware, on Linux they have to insert translation layers, which certainly makes it work, and it slows everything down.

        Actually, for the card covered by the new Mesa r600 SB backend (my HD 6850 is one of them), the framerate is surprisingly good, compared to Windows even. Also be sure to use a newer kernel 3.11 that has new radeon power management.

        • Works fine with nvidia binary 325.15
          Used both wine and native, can't say I've had any critical issues, just some minor glitches.

                I think that it may trigger the VAC Ban

                -> "Via the AT-SPI, Orca connects to applications and communicates with their graphical components, such as push buttons, text areas, menus and so forth"

                • Hey. I spend hours on this problem and I can't come up with a solution .
                  Everything works fine except the facts that I can't end the first tutorial. After an introduction movie game says congratulation, I click 'close' and nothing happens. Tutorial is still undone.
                  Please, I just want to play this bloody game

                  • I guess we'll have to wait until another life to see Linux GPU drivers perform better or equal than Windows ones!

                      They already do.

                        sadly on amd cards opengl perfomance is still behind DX performance (but is not linux issue they do perfom as bad on both OSes).

                          • I know OP has some specifics but I was wondering if they had changed - like - would DotA be able to run on my girlfriends Toshiba Chromebook 2 with 4gb ram?

                            Best regards,

                              Dota 2 Linux Minimum System Requirements:
                              nVidia GeForce 8600/9600GT, ATI/AMD Radeaon HD2600/3600 (Graphic Drivers: nVidia 310, AMD 12.11), OpenGL 2.1

                              OpenAL Compatible Sound Card
                              Is this up to date with the reborn client? Especially sicne ATI/AMD Radeaon HD2600/3600 aren't supported much longer by Ubuntu and has been dropped years ago by ATI.
