then I get to the Yes/No run option. I have done both. I hit yes, Steam crashes on startup. I have already run TF2(at a horrible frame rate, albiet.) so I clicked no the next time. Then it requests my user name.
That is where is simply tells me that I have an "incorrect user name."
I would really, very much, to an extent unknown to most men, love to play TF2 on linux. This is my only roadblock to doing it "flawlessly."
