Psychonauts 2 crashes on launch or when changing display settings in Linux


The game may crash at launch or when attempting to alter Display settings such as Window Mode. Please try the following troubleshooting solutions:

  • Use alternate display drivers, found in Software & Updates > Additional Drivers
  • Go to Settings > Appearance and reposition the Activities bar to the bottom of the screen
  • Use an alternate desktop environment (DE) such as Gnome on X.Org or Ubuntu on Wayland
  • Try changing the resolution with the "Resolution Scaling" slider found in the Settings > Graphics menu

If none of these work, please check that the game meets the minimum requirements for Linux, and if it does contact us at including as much detail about your system specification and OS as possible.
