Game Crash on Debian-Jessie (HumbleBundle version)

#1 Edited by DebianPlayer (2 posts) -

Hi!

I'm trying to play on Debian-Jessie, but i get those error messages and a pretty black screen (I hace to kill the game process from a tty).

./Antichamber.sh

[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; SteamAPI_IsSteamRunning() failed.

[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; unable to locate a running instance of Steam, or a local steamclient.dll.

Loading library: libPhysXCooking.so

Result of loading library libPhysXCooking.so: 0xa631500

Loading library: PhysXUpdateLoader.so

ERROR: PhysXUpdateLoader.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Result of loading library PhysXUpdateLoader.so: 0x0

Loading library: libPhysXCore.so

Result of loading library libPhysXCore.so: 0xa631280

Killed

Someone knows what happens? Looking to the information in the humble bundle web, I pass all the system requirements to be able to play. And now that i bought the game, i find that i cant play becose there are library and steam dependencies... When will be it solved?

New information.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx_archives.html#SDK

Here you can find physx core linux deb and rpm. You only have to untar and install the correct package for your distro.

And now there are only a few errors:

./Antichamber.sh

[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; SteamAPI_IsSteamRunning() failed.

[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; unable to locate a running instance of Steam, or a local steamclient.dll.

Segmentation fault

I was under the impression that all Humble games were generally steam based (i'm not aware of a stand alone Antichamber install). The physX libraries were a bit of a no brainer but you may just need to grab the Steam deb's, considering Valve lead on Debian based platforms that shouldn't be a major problem.

I don't think there is a way out of this without using Steam.
