To launch TF2, be sure to have disabled this button : enabled steam community in-game in steam, setting, in-game.
What I have found : I need to open a root application and enter my root password before launching TF2. A root application is an application who need to enter the root password like NVIDIA X server settings, synaptic ...
If I don't do that I can't play on TF2 or Portal (but Steam works).
Tell me if it's the same thing for you.
