Ubuntu: 751H running ubuntu12.04 Dont Starve boots to a black screen Audio only?


I have an acer aspire one 751h with 2GB of ram and GMA500 graphics. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32bit.

I have steam loaded on the computer and it runs fine (slow in full screen) but fine. I installed Don't Starve onto the computer and it starts with a black screen with audio only.

I tried about 5 different options in the start up file inside steam (i.e. right click the game--preferences) I tried setting the height to 600 and the width to 800 I tried -gl, -safe and a few others none worked and most started crashing once the sound kicked in.

I tried updating the graphics drivers and no improvement. It still starts to a black screen till you hear the audio then it will crash. can anyone point me in the right direction to get this game to run?


The problem is your video is not supported by the game. Try running the game with a supported video card.

Graphics: Radeon HD5450 or better; dedicated 256 MB or higher (GMA Cards not supported - See below)
