    Anyway, second hand games wrapped in anything like eOn, not for me anymore... I want nicely optimized games for my penguin :-) I guess I will have to wait for Valve to show the others what they can do with a flightless bird ... ;-) HL3 plzzzz

    You can run it. Enter the install directory and issue this command manually:
    Code:
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/.steam/bin32/ ~/.steam/bin32/steam-runtime/run.sh ./witcher2 --eon_opengl21
    Updating this, thanks to Pontostroy.

    To use TW2 in Steam properly with Mesa, right click the game, select properties, then set launch options, and put this into the field:
    Code:
    MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.3COMPAT %command%
    The game will then run properly. The launcher, the overlay, everything works.

    This is the best workaround until a new patch comes.

    Well ... i enjoyed it with wine. If anything is messy, it's eON. If you turn two blind eyes to eON you can call it experimental/study project at best.
    I really hate the concept of wine installing a mini windows with all the fake windows libs, even forcing its notepad and internet explorer into your menus and messing up file associations etc. If you install wine, you can only fully get rid of it by reinstalling the OS. On the other hand, eON is a simple coating around the exe, a clean wrapper that doesn't go beyond the install directory. It may perform a bit worse currently, but it doesn't really matter. Years go by, we have stronger and stronger hardware. One day it'll run at 1000 fps even if the code remains the same.

    Well, if wine could come up with a simple wrapper version as well, that would be great. However, it won't happen probably.

    export MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.3COMPAT and witcher 2 works fine with gl32 and mesa 10.4-10.5

    Other thing is that in theory mesa supports opengl 3, but in practice it has still problems with some functions.
    Could you be more specific about the problems you've encountered?
