Ubuntu – Bastion on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit gives only a black screen

12.0464-bitgamesgraphics

I just downloaded the Humble Bundle with the game Bastion. After installing Bastion and starting it up, only it shows first a few logos, and then only a black screen and the mouse pointer. I can here the sound fine.

I read a message board that recommended starting it with -windowed -x 1280 -y 720 which does not work.

I am on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit, with a Intel 3000 integrated graphics card. Does anyone know how I can get this to work properly?

This helped me:

sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0

(Bastion) use S3tc textures and for some reason Intel graphics cards don't use these automatically on Linux.
