Can't start Counter Strike (wine)
I've installed Steam and Counter Strike (1.6) under wine. Steam works fine (except the mouse pointer is slightly off) but when I try to start CS, I'm suddenly in tty1:
xprop: unable to open display ':0'
usage: xprop [-options ...
kdeinit: sending SIGTERM to children.
kdeinit: sending SIGTERM to children,
Then I don't know what to do, so I startx and start over.
What can I do about this?
I got a message before saying that the previous attempt to start in openGL video mode failed and that the game would run in software mode.
I run Slackware 12.0, on a machine with an internal graphicscard...
Do any Opengl apps run? (glxgears or Opengl screensaver is a good way to test).
You don't mention your graphics card or driver.
If you are trying to start app from within X and OpenGL works - try another version of wine - newer or older.
Thanks for the repiles
Opengl seams to work, I've been using an opengl screensaver for some time now. My graphics card is an nVidia mcp61s onboard graphic. I don't know anything about the drives...
I was using 1.0.1, I tried 1.1.9, now when I try to start CS I get the usual "Preparing to launch Counter-Strike..." (as before) but this time nothing happens. Under game status "syncing: 0%, 0 Bytes/s" blinks a few times, and then nothing.
