I run Black Mesa on Linux using Flatpak’s distribution of Steam. A few days ago, the game worked fine. However, as of April 29th, the game will not launch and from the terminal I get the error
/home/edwargix/.var/app/com.valvesoftware.Steam/data/Steam/steamapps/common/Black Mesa/bms_linux: error while loading shared libraries: libtcmalloc_minimal.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I’ve seen this error before; Portal 2 had this issue a while back, and solved it by shipping libtcmalloc_minimal.so with the game. Would it be possible for Black Mesa to do the same?
BTW, since Flatpak maintains its own libraries and sandboxes its applications, I unfortuneately can’t simply install libtcmalloc on my distro
