I downloaded overture and tested running xubuntu. Did not have any problems getting out of the first room. I picked up the notebook, the flashlight in the drawer and used the key to open the locker and took the glowstick. Shortly after I could exit the room and continue playing. So the game is working as it should, but I am afraid I am clueless as to why the door will not open for you.

Also tested black plague and it ran fine, both tutorial and the first level, did not get any crash. Again unsure why it crashes for you, in particular if requiem and overture works. You can try and delete the settings for black plague from your home/.frictionalgames/. Launch game again and see if it works with default settings.

I've reinstalled it my arch desktop, I even tried to install it from scratch on my ubuntu laptop. I stuck at the same door. İf you tried it on xubuntu, our only difference is desktop enviroment (Unity-Xfce). It's a bit strange you to not have any problems while you've used same distro with me o.O Could it be releated my steam account or steam ?

Note: I've tried this game's "Cracked" version to just giving a try. Door worked and I could go to base. I broke the ice and I felt down. It's about with steam version.

Perhaps you could try to disable the Steam Overlay for the game. Some games do have issues with it.
Though, it is a very strange issue indeed. Perhaps it would be possible to just transfer a save file AFTER the door and continue from there, assuming the issue doesn't affect all doors.

I guess I've found my issue.

level00_01_boat_cabin.hps
(As I though)

//////////////////////

}

void ExitDoorInteract01(string asEntity)
{

Did not look much but they look identical? Don't see anything wrong?

I tested using Steam version as well and have overlay active. Can't recall but maybe there is a beta branch available, if so check properties and beta tab on the game and switch to the default branch.

I could't get it working. I even format my all disk, all data, changed my main computer's OS to ubuntu (Which should be supported by official) but no chance. I'm clicking verify game integritiy, still don't work. I switched back to arch linux. Ubuntu had the same issues. I've waited for updates, I'm still trying. Sometimes steam says a text like 27 files, 147 files and downloads 5-6 MB data. I'm not sure what was that for. I guess it's about with steam ?

I was using steam default and I even tried (When you asked me to try) steam beta, and still no chance. I will try to install steam by playonlinux and feedback. If it works I guess it's about with linux version because I've tried cracked version of windows and it worked. I guess there was some issues with linux version. If it works I will use wine from now on.

________________________

Wine didn't work too. I couldn't even launch game.
I guess there is no way to play this game properly on linux.
