What works

Everything, after some tweaking.

What does not

If you have compiz (Ubuntu's Unity interface) installed, there may arise issues with lag after a certain amount of time. This can be remedied by running the command: metacity --replace in the terminal before running the game from the steam launcher. Graphics might also be a little screw before running this command, even if you don't have lag issues. I recommend running it in a bordered window.


What was not tested

Running directly from the .exe file.

Additional Comments

Graphics requirements are not heavy; run on a basic 2008 Aluminum macbook with 4gb ram, 128 mb graphics.

HowTo / Notes

Fix for lighting bug

2015-02-11 Admin note: the following was extracted from a user comment made in 2014 and may not be relevant to current Wine.

This is apparently a bug caused by a combination of the NVidia driver and Wine after wine 1.5-ish. The easy fix is to disable multi-core rendering in Source engine games.
