Can't connect any parts
Not sure why I can't find similar bug reports. Don't know why this is not working just for me.
I can't build any rockets because I can't connect parts together. The windows does not have such effects.
If I move (for example) a separator under the command part it won't snap together.
I am using the Steam version under Ubuntu 12.10 (64 Bit).

Hello, I can confirm this.
After I saw the Linux version coming out I decided to instantly buy the game after I tried the Demo on Steam and got the same problem.
The green balls indication where to connect parts are not on the parts, they are like 5x the parts size away from it, making it impossible to connect any parts.
The game is unplayable this way, can't produce an aircraft.
Loading pre-saved aircraft won't work, too (e. g. "Kerbal X"). They don't show up. When you go to the Launch after selecting one of these ships you end up in space (you should be at the ramp though) not able to fire any stages and not seeing your ship.
System: Ubuntu 12.04 (64 Bit)
Graphics: ATI HD5570 (drivers working fine)
RAM: 8GB DDR3
Processor: Intel I3

I'm french an I have the exact same issue (Steam, Ubuntu 12.10 64bits, belgian-french locale).
Changing the launch command of steam by "LANG=C optirun command" worked for me (optirun is there because I have Nvidia Optimus technology).
Thank you for sorting it out !

Here the same problem in Ubuntu 13.04 x64 with nvidia 670 and Intel i5.
The only way to play the game is to launch it from the directory with "LC_ALL=C ./KSP.x86_64" command.
With this it's working fine, only the audio is completly wrong (see the image below).
Why after 4 months this bug is always here?
How can I start the game from steam without every time have to start it from the terminal?

Still experiencing this issue on Ubuntu 14.04, locale nl-be (Dutch, Belgium), with the latest version of the demo on Steam.
Also, this thing is really un-Googleable.
@LamerTex, to start from Steam, change the "Launch options" in Steam to:
or, for the 64-bit version:
