    I purchased the game through Steam. The game freezes on startup, all I get is a black screen (no smiley). The game and steam and completely locked, killing with xkill is the only way to kill the game.

    Not that I'm 100% sure that it doesn't say so, but I can't find it.

    Linux is supported. I purchased and downloaded this from Steam's linux program. On Rust's Steam page, see the 3 icons? It means this game runs on Linux, Windows and Mac.



    I am running the X.Org X AMD/ATI open display driver.

    I tried all the different resolutions and detail settings. Still get the black screen on start.

    In case anyone is having the same problem with an ATI card. I was running the X.Org open source driver. Using Ubuntu's software updates - additional drivers I swapped from X.Org to the ATI fglrx-updates proprietary driver. Problem solved! I should have known, the ATI open source drivers are pretty terrible for gaming.
