    Installs fine with Steam but when I click to play a black window pops up and closes immediately.

    That has to be a driver issue
    Are you using an AMD video card/chip?

    You have everything installed. Are you able to play any other games?

    Did you install 32-bit libraries in Ubuntu 15.10?

    Other games work but I'm not sure if I installed 32-bit libraries; is there a way to check or install?

    Which games? If the working games have 64-bit compatibility then that won't help you.
    I haven't installed them in Ubuntu myself, but here is how you can try:

    Code:
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386; sudo apt-get update
    or

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libasound2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 lib32nss-mdns libgnutls26:i386 libxslt1.1:i386 libxcursor1:i386 libxcomposite1:i386 libosmesa6:i386 libopenal1:i386 libmpg123-0:i386 libldap-2.4-2:i386 liblcms2-2:i386 libgstreamer0.10-0:i386 libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0:i386 libgsm1:i386 libxinerama1:i386 libxi6:i386 libv4l-0:i386 libsane:i386 libudev1:i386 libxml2:i386 libcups2:i386 libxrandr2:i386 libice6:i386 libsm6:i386

    On steam the games that work are: Counter Strike Global Offensive, Left 4 Dead 2, Borderlands 2, Unturned, Team Fortress 2, and No More Room in Hell

    Outside of steam I play League of Legends and that also runs smoothly.

    I used the code and ran it and got this at the end: Not sure if it does anything or not.

    Nice, looks like Ubuntu doesn't even keep the 32-bit packages in their own PPA anymore.
    Since you are playing League of Legends, I'm guessing you have all the 32-bit libraries installed. I don't think it will work without them. And that means you have used PlayOnLinux before.

    Try, uninstalling Don't Starve and downloading it again.
    If it still refuses to launch, try posting in their forum on Steampowered:

    Yeah I use PlayOnLinux, I use your guides a lot they're really helpful. I tried posting on the Steam before and I got no response so I thought I would come to you.

    I've tried the uninstall and reinstall a few times before.

    Have you tried the newer nvidia drivers available? The driver you are currently using is very old.

    I'm not sure how to; I can't really find a proper guide would you be able to help me install new ones?

    Ubuntu should have a Driver Manager
    Search applications for it and you should see newer Nvidia drivers
    Mint 17.2 now supports Nvidia 352 drivers and all I have to do is open the Driver Manager, select the driver, click install.
    Thats it.
    Helps to restart as well.

    In the second screenshot you posted, you can see that there are other versions of the nvidia driver available. You are currently using the 340.96 version, which is actually the current legacy driver for older nvidia cards (300 series and older). You would probably benefit a lot in terms of performance to switch to the 352.63 version which is visible at the top in your screenshot.

    You need to restart after switching the driver, because the kernel modules must be reloaded.

    I don't know if this will help with your current issue, but we can always hope. In any case, please report back here. If it still does not work then I'll try looking more into this to see if I can figure it out.

    Oh yeah I tried all of the drivers listed unfortunately I still get the same error.
    Do you think switching to Mint may fix the issue?

    Before you try Mint, make sure your GeForce 520M is supported. This is a laptop correct?
    I think the "M" in 520 is for Mobile.

    Also, does your Intel i7 have a video chip integrated as well?
    There is a chance they are fighting over the application.
    I'm not very familiar with double GPU's but since you can play other games, this shouldn't be a problem

    Yeah it is a Sony Vaio Laptop and I'm not sure if the Intel i7 has a video chip but the sticker on the laptop says "Intel inside core i7".

    I probably won't be switching to Mint because I'm not sure where the M is coming from and that their are problems that can occur if switching with this driver, I guess I'll try Don't Starve Together to see if I have any luck.

    Well Mint is based off Ubuntu but is more stable due to using an older kernel.

    Just to make sure, you are using the Linux version of Steam for Don't Starve correct?
    Not Windows Steam in PlayOnLinux.

    Don't Starve Together works perfectly on 3 of my Mint 17.2 machines.

    You should definitely use the Linux version of the game, and not try to run the Windows version with PlayOnLinux.

    Install the Linux version of Steam from the Ubuntu software center, and then you can install the Linux version of the game which should run without issues.
