    Running the mac_linux_test through steam.

    Game loads up the window (in windowed mode) but presents a blank screen, there are bird sounds in the background though so nothing is being drawn to the window I guess.

    Linux Mint 17.3
    16 GB DDR3
    Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 Ti
    Nvidia Drivers - 361.45.11

              Some kind soul on Reddit provided me with a fix that worked for both him and me. It involved replacing the libsdl libraries from stardew valley with another version (from amnesia the dark descent). The link he provided for the libraries if you don't have Amnesia is https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/79134316/Amnesia Test Libs.zip

              It's as simple as going to stardew valley in your steam folder and replacing the files libsdl2.0 with the ones provided

                This should befixed in the latest beta build. Give it a try.
