Hello.

I have purchased Magicka 2 from Steam, but I can't get through the intro screen (screenshot below) - tab key doesn't do anything, I can move the mouse, but can't click anything, and I don't use a controller. No crashing, no loading. The music plays, but there's no fun happening :)
Please inform me, what can be wrong, an how can I fix it? (P. S. I'm new to gaming on Linux)

Laptop details:
Ubuntu 17.10, 64-bit
Gnome 3.26.2
Memory 5,7 GiB
Intel Core i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50Ghz x 4
GeForce GT 635M/PCle/SSE2

The request on that screen is to hit the space bar. This is so the game knows what you want to use in the game.

Note that your video system is well below (about 1/3 the power) the minimum required for the game, the GeForce 550. But I don't think that is causing this problem.

In Windows the logs for this game are in a folder:
C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\ParadoxInteractive\Magicka2\logs\
and are called names like
console_2019-02-01-10.12.06-otevsnst.txt

I don't know where they are for Linux, but see if you can find any files console*.txt

Andrew, thank you for the reply.

I updated Ubuntu to 18.04.2 LTS, and then chose NVIDIA driver metapackage from nvidia-driver-390. I'm not sure what did the job, but now I have a running game :)

I found the problem! :D The game doesn't recognize space bar, when the keyboard is set to another language, different from English. Tried it a few times with russian and lithuanian languages.
