Dota2 on Slackware64


So far I've followed Eric's guide on getting Steam up. Steam launches fine, I've even used it to download Dota2.

After downloading Dota2, I tried to run it with no luck. I restarted the X server and tried to open steam, and now it is throwing seg faults. These seg faults got fixed after I did a slackpkg update, install, and upgrade-all... now when Dota2 tries to launch it throws this error :

Code:
/bin/sh: primusrun: command not found

I would grok the script.
Try
Quote:
updatedb
locate primusrun
then add that location to the $PATH

PATH=/path/to/primusrun:$PATH

I did that, and then ran a whereis primusrun, but it wasn't able to find it.

Dota2 Runs! I had read somehwere to add primusrun %command% in the dota2 parameters, I just removed that from the launcher settings and it fired up fine.

Edit:

As I am playing the game, I can notice significant amounts of blurr in certain parts, like the minimap. This may be a game thing, but I will look into it more.

you didn't, I hope run

PATH=/path/to/primusrun:$PATH

What I wanted you to do was run updatedb, && locate primusrun. THAT will tell you exactly where primisrun is. If you don't have updatedb, try slocate -u && slocate primusrun

The output should be the directory that primisrun is in

Primus is used for the nvidia / Intel hybrid graphics that need bumblebee. If you aren't using bumblebee, or you haven't installed primus yourself... It won't be there.
