    @Artemis3

    When you create live images you have to turn that default off otherwise you end up with a huge iso with lots of unused packages. The default for Kanotix is logically then install without recommends. If a package "needs" recommends then is is wrongly packaged - you can not rely on this feature.

      as you can see its very easy solution to solve that.
      well why should you solve a problem that you don't need to have?

      Why would Valve want to solve that problem (which is certainly not 'easy to solve'. It's possible to solve it but it's certainly not 'easy' and it also would result in needing a bigger/better server since you need to check all other bug reports and not only by using the exact text but you need to throw words around and search the entire database multiple times. And even a company like Valve isn't going to buy a high-end server if a virtualized server will do the job just as good) if they don't need to?

      In that stage of the beta phase they want to fix obvious bugs. It doesn't matter if you've 100, 1000 or 10000 people looking at the program. They all find the same bugs.

      @Naib you should probably try Heroes of Newerth.

              So there's others there that work like Trine 2, Dungeons of Dredmore etc.

              Are you in the Beta ? If not, how did you mannaged to play Amenesia and Trine 2 ?

              I only mannaged search for linux games in the store, and installed the World of Goo Demo and it's working flawless

              Unity of Command: Stalingrad Compagian fails to to install any files at all (gonna test the staandalone Beta/Demo/whatever from the game devs to see what happens)....

              If i try to do same with Amenesia or Trine 2 demos , it says that it's not for my plantform

                  I've posted here http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410...5239722194376/ but their community, at least here, are really slow, and sometimes I can't see any post there...

                  It's just a simple package (it just 2 files long :P) that add at your login screen the option to play STEAM Big Picture without any DE!

                      Hi, this is my lil' feedback for a non-elected Quantal user, just a few hours ago

                      World of Goo demo OK: easy to add
                      Amnesia demo OK: some libs required

                      any other game known to work with the marginal beta testers?
