I am using slackware 14.0, and have gotten all the multilib stuff taken care of. I have skype,spotify and steam running. I have used steam to download Dota2, and when I go to launch the game I get an error --

/bin/sh: primusrun: command not found

I did a

locate primusrun 

Then searched for primusrun, but it wasn't found (using a whereis).

Any ideas?


primusrun seems to a be a part of Primus, which is apparently some kind of library that that game probably requires. There's a Steam knowledge base article that may help you:
