Hello. I ran into a somewhat nasty bug, which I solved myself. I've created this thread to share the fix with everyone. Note. This applies to the 64-bit Linux version. It may or may not apply to the 32-bit Linux version.
- The Frictional Games logo doesn't show up when you first start the game.
- The screens that give you an introduction to the game and ask you to adjust the gamma settings have no background images.
- The game segfaults after you click through the intro screens.
- You get a backtrace from GDB similar to the one below:
#0 0x00000000008585f0 in hpl::cGuiGfxElement::GetImageSize() ()

Copy your system's IL library over the one in installDirectory/Amnesia/libs64/libIL.so.1. In my case it was located at /usr/lib/libIL.so.1.1.0. Once you do this, the game should start.
