tremulous can't start

after i successfully installed Nvidia driver for Gforce 440 GO card , i reconfigured xorg.conf file as nvidia documentation mentioned and restarted the X server and i had nvidia logo starting up with KDE. so i can assume that the nvidia driver was installed no problem. then i installed a game called tremulous which i installed with no problem too. now i'm trying to lunch the game but it's coming back with the error below:
