I'm using Ubuntu 12.10 (32 bit) with MATE desktop. Game is very slow and hangs on exit (i must kill proccess).

Workaround for game speed:
Create Trine 2 shortcut and run directly from desktop right after logging in to Ubuntu (Steam main window is minimalized).

Workaround for hang on exit:
First of all i want to say that i have usb microphone VF0610 Live! Cam Socialize HD (creative webcam). When I activate microphone (mate-volume-control) before starting the game Trine 2 dosn't hangs on exit.

Reproduce the issue:
Run Steam from menu or shortcut desktop and then run Trine 2 from library or tray icon (same as PCSan method). In my case doesn't seem to matter what graphics detail I use, game is slow anyway...

Trine 2 is much faster when using workaround even on very high detail.

Please attach the required information as described here: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux. Did you try to disable the Steam overlay?

Chiming in as I have the same proble and the given workaround works for me as wel altough it only works when I start the game right after logging in to Ubuntu.

To reproduce the issue, I start Steam using the Unity dash and then I start Trine 2 from either the Steam library interface or the Steam icon in the top bar.I launch with Graphics Detail Level set to "high". When the game has loaded it is quite choppy (is there a way of measuring framerate?).

When using the suggested workaround, the game runs much smoother.
In other words, I relog in to Ubuntu and start the game with the shortcut with Graphics Detail Level set to "high".

@PCSan
Thanks for the tips :-)

@olavd
Yes, I disabled the Steam overlay. I thought that this resolve issue but after the while I realized that doesn't help.

You are welcome!

By the way, for me Trine 2 does not hang on exit.

@kurczakospl

When I activate my microphone game dosn't hangs on exit...details above

@hamsterready

Same problem in my case - very slow.

@cjosephson

The game is also very slow for me, even in lowest settings. Gets worse as graphics quality increases.
