    I've been having this issue upon loading into PA for the past few weeks on my Manjaro desktop where it will play the intro just fine however the area that the main menu is supposed to be in is black and the only visible thing is the bottom icons on the bottom dock. My specs are as follows:
    Graphics: RX 580
    CPU: RX 580
    RAM: 16 GB
    I've tried a few things but I've had no luck in getting it to be playable. Does it have to do video-linux or video-mesa?

    Hi linux users. Great news.
    I can run PA under ubuntu 19.04 with amdgpu now, using rx580.
    And it's surprisingly easy workaround - you will like it :-D

    We enforce using the windows version of PA and launch it with proton.
    coherent ui supports wine but needs rendering by software.

    1. Go to the steam library, open PA settings.
    2. first tab: enforce specific compatibility tool: for example proton 4.2-9 (works for me)
    3. in same tab: start options: %command% --software-ui
    4. I also disabled BPM overlay, whatever that is.

    game works better then ever under linux
    texture working, no black rectangles, no artefacts, fency glowing lights are working...
    but sound is jittering a bit due to my system-wide-pulseaudio-setup.
    but its perfect now.
    sure, performance could be a bit better for me, but i won't complain with my 4k setting.
    performance is better for me than in native linux mode.

    only one big issue: cover the line no longer works. It doesn't recognice right click release :-( :-(
    or in other words: drag gesture isn't working for cover the line

    but middle click drag gesture for planet move is working...

    have fun
    and give me a like if this post helped you! <3

    Welp, now it crashes while I'm using proton. Any other suggestions.
