I am new to linux and have recently installed Ubuntu 8.10 64-bit os. I was hoping to be able to play the game Team Fortress 2 on the linux side of my computer. I installed wine, and successfully got steam to work, but when I try to run TF2 it becomes a blank screen. What is interesting, though is that I can hear the music and can scroll over the menu in the game, just not see anything. After messing with the power button, canceling shut down, and restoring focus to the game I can see the game, but it runs excusably slow.I was hoping that I could get this game to work better in Linux than in Vista, but no such luck. Any ideas? I am willing to install things but want to avoid paying for anything if possible.
P.S Here are 2 images...
