    Since the November 2016 update I found I had to install libsdl2-2.0 as an extra package so I could manually launch the local server. I'm using Kubuntu 14.04.

    Actually, I didn't start any game until resolving this issue so maybe SDL2 is needed for PA to work correctly now. Dunno.

    Detail: It's a Steam install of PA:Titans

    Yes, if you don't use the steam-runtime libraries, then PA (and server) will try to use the system libraries instead. Normally libsdl2 is pulled from those steam-runtime libraries.

    Alternatively, you can start the server using the steam-runtime like this:
    Code:
    ~/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/run.sh ./server

    I verified by removing SDL2 and, with some path differences, it worked. Good info, thanks. That looks to be a generic mechanism for all steam games ...
