    *Resolved* Install Wine and Steam

    Solution: (The following was done on Ubuntu 6.10)
    1) Download Steaminstall and the following font :tahoma.ttf
    2) In Terminal:
    wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    3) sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/...st.d/edgy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
    4) sudo apt-get update
    5) sudo apt-get install wine
    6) (move the tahoma.ttf file into the wine fonts folder)
    sudo mv ./tahoma.ttf /usr/share/wine/fonts/
    7) sudo wine SteamInstall.exe
    8) click on steam icon created on desktop and cross fingers.

    /* Old post
    I keep trying to install Wine onto my Ubuntu install by using the following methods:
    http://www.winehq.com/site/download-deb

    However, I keep running into permission problems on the last couple steps. Do I need to execute with 'sudu' at the start?

    Now, my assumption is that once I get WINE installed correctly, that I'll be able to figure out how to 'run' it and install Steam. Does that sound about right?

    Re: Wine and UT2004

    No need to run WINE for UT games as they have native installers.

    Re: Wine and Steam

    you know that Wine is in the Ubuntu repos as well right? Im not sure what version off hand but its probly atleast a pretty recent one.

    you would just type "sudo apt-get install wine" to do that. I forget exactly what it is, but theres a command to run wines configuration process to set it up.

    If you want to install it right from source forge you would just do "sudo wget URL". Or you could add the URL to your sources file as well, thou im not sure what apt-get would do then since it would see two versions of wine. I would think it would install the latest but I dont know.

    I wish you luck thou, from my personal experiance wine and cedega do not work. Ive had so little success with them myself that sometimes I wonder if the screenshots arnt photoshoped :P

    Re: Wine and Steam

    lol, sorry I didnt mean that like it sounded. Just meant you could just do apt-get install wine.

    After that im about 90% sure the command to run to configure it is winecfg, but its been a while since I used it.

    Re: Wine and Steam

    OK wine installed and Steam is downloading CS: Source

    I did the following on Ubuntu 6.10
    1) Download Steaminstall and the following font :tahoma.ttf
    2) In Terminal:
    wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    3) sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/...st.d/edgy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
    4)sudo apt-get update
    5)sudo apt-get install wine
    6)(move the tahoma.ttf file into the wine fonts folder)
    sudo mv ./tahoma.ttf /usr/share/wine/fonts/
    7)sudo wine SteamInstall.exe
    8) click on steam icon created on desktop and cross fingers.

    Steam is running and downloading Source. I'll try to play it in the morning... but from the little I have played around with my Steam install... calling it stable would be quite an exaggeration.

    I have a screen shot... but you will just have to bare with me as I figure out how to get it off this box other than emailing it to one of my windows boxes.
