Ive uninstalled Linux mint 18.3 and reinstalled it reinstalled steam and insurgency and still having same problem. the text in the game just don't show up i cant move over to Linux until i get this fixed Ive got one reply from insurgency support saying :
(It appears that you may have corrupted font which Insurgency uses, if you did not already please verify your game files in Steam:
Go to Steam client, library, right click on Insurgency, select properties, local files, "Verify integrity of game cache...") still didn't work.i just dont know what to do now

To tell you the truth, while I don't have any Windows partitions any more, I'm not a gamer. If I was I'd still have some Windows. Steam doesn't work as well in Linux as in WIndows generally due to poor game and driver optimization, many Linux Steam games require Nvidia graphics, and it's normal to get significantly less FPS in Linux even if the game's working as well as it could. Linux still stinks for gamers.
