The Garry's Mod on Arch Linux Thread

I haven't seen any chatter about this, so let me start things off:

If you're viewing this thread in the next 37 hours, Garry's Mod is 75% off: http://store.steampowered.com/app/4000/

It isn't marked with a Tux icon, but it will show up in your linux games library and you will be able to install it.

However, I wasn't able to run the mod, it gives me the “Could not load library client” error, also described by this user.

I'll post any progress I make here, and if anyone has got it running please post your progess here as well.

Thanks!

After installing lib32-gconf from the AUR (like the blog comment thread I linked to suggested:

$ yaourt --noconfirm lib32-gconf

I was able to attempt to start a game, it exits without an error at the moment though...

Re: The Garry's Mod on Arch Linux Thread

I managed to get to the start-up screen after installing lib32-gconf (as recommended elsewhere), but it's rendered in a small square mid-screen and I can't click on anything.

Re: The Garry's Mod on Arch Linux Thread

Ok, a bit of an update:
I can join a server and play, but trying to start one locally crashes the game.

Re: The Garry's Mod on Arch Linux Thread

This helped me get much further before any "crashes" - the single player game was almost fully set up. Previously the game wouldn't start.
