    s3tc texture support

    Hi I'm relatively new to Linux (Mint 16 petra cinamon) and have just Downloaded Dota 2 through steam but I can't play it. I get this error message before anything starts:-

    this applications requires either the GL_EXT_texture_compression_s3tc,
    or GL_EXT_texture_compression_dxt1 + GL_ANGLE_texture_compression_dxt3 +
    GL_ANGLE_texture_compression_dxt5 OpenGL extensions.Please install S3TC texture support.

    This is my computer but I have 8gb of ram

    Thanks in advance

    I've contacted steam but they don't answer.

    Hello, I had the same issue yesterday, this trick works for me.
    Open up the terminal and paste this force_s3tc_enable=true steam
    It will start steam , wait a minute and start dota 2, but the other issue i got is lag.. maybe i got about 25-30 fps .
    I guess it because I used this trick , but I'm not sure.
    FYI, I can play dota 2 in windows very well..
