    I've read the Dota 2 Linux Minimum System Requirements are:

    Ubuntu 12.04
    Dual core from Intel or AMD at 2.8 GHz
    4GB RAM
    4GB Hard Drive Space,
    nVidia GeForce 8600/9600GT, ATI/AMD Radeaon HD2600/3600 (Graphic Drivers: nVidia 310, AMD 12.11), OpenGL 2.1
    OpenAL Compatible Sound Card

    But I use:

    Linux Mint 14 "Nadia" with Cinnamon 1.6
    Quad-core Intel 4670K-i5 Haswell
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    500GB HDD
    nVidia GeForce GTX 770 Gaming Edition
    Sabertooth Z87 Motherboard

    And for some reason DotA 2 won't launch. I have successfully installed Steam, then proceeded to install DotA 2. When I click "Play" in Steam, it loads, plays the Valve intro animation, then closes out. Whyyyy? I thought Linux Mint was built off of Ubuntu?
