Tracker for issues specific to Linux and Mac in the Reborn client. If you have a general issue or non-system-specific feature request please go to Issues that only occur with Vulkan should be logged in the Dota-2-Vulkan tracker.


  • The game requires a 64-bit capable CPU and distribution
  • If using nVidia proprietary drivers on Linux, please update to 340.xx or newer before filing a bug report
  • If using Mesa on Linux, please update to 10.5.9 or newer before fixing a bug report.

If the game fails to launch with a "missing executable" error, please use Steam to verify the integrity of the game's files in order to acquire the missing binaries.


There are basic rules of conduct that should be followed at all times by everyone participating in the discussions. While this is generally a relaxed environment, please remember the following:

  • Do not insult, harass, or demean anyone.
  • Do not intentionally multi-post an issue.
  • Do not use ALL CAPS when creating an issue report.
  • Do not repeatedly update an open issue remarking that the issue persists.

Remember: Just because the issue you reported was reported here does not mean that it is an issue with Dota 2. As well, should your issue not be resolved immediately, it does not mean that a resolution is not being researched or tested. Patience is always appreciated.

Reporting Issues

If you encounter a bug while using Dota 2 Reborn, first search the issue list to see if it has already been reported. Include closed issues in your search.

If it has not been reported, create a new issue with at least the following information:

  • what platform this is occuring on: Linux or Mac;
  • a short, descriptive title;
  • a detailed description of the issue, including any output from the command line;
  • steps for reproducing the issue; and
  • your system information.

Please place logs either in a code block (press M in your browser for a GFM cheat sheet) or a gist.

System information

Your system information must include:

  • your Linux distro or Mac OS version
  • if Linux, your Desktop/Window Manager
  • if Mac, the model and revision of your hardware
  • your Graphics card info (manufacturer, card version), any and all graphics driver versions
  • anything else that you think may be useful (mouse/keyboard, filesystem type, etc).

The preferred and easiest way to get this information is from Steam's Hardware Information viewer from the menu (Help -> System Information).

Once your information appears: right-click within the dialog, choose Select All, right-click again, and then choose Copy. Paste this information into your report, preferably in a code block or a gist.
