Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I just installed Ubuntu as my main OS yesterday and I spent today trying to figure out Wine. I have no knowledge of terminal, wine, or anything Linux prior to yesterday aside from messing around with Fedora Core a few years ago. Here is what I want to do:
I have my harddrive set up where the partition with Ubuntu on it is 10gb, and the remaining ~70gb of my harddrive is still ntfs from when I had windows. That ntfs partition has lots of things I would like to keep, ie lots of music, and specifically, my games. I can mount it just fine and see all the files, that isn't the problem...
How can I make wine run these already set up games? I am pretty stumped by wine in general and the internets aren't helping me. What I want to do, is basically tell wine to open the exe's that are already installed in that ntfs partition. When I navigate to that folder and say, try to run "wine steam.exe", I get an error to the tune of Failed to MapViewOfFile. Would someone mind holding my hand through the process of making wine work for me?
so I just type in this box and it goes on the screen?
