Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

To get wine to run Windows games (and Crossover for that matter) requires a lot of tweak. Heck, even to get Windows applications on Wine is difficult. Most likely you will need to download a hole lot of Win98 dll's to get silly things to work. Get Cedega(FKA Cedega):
Bookmark it. I've got a bunch of Windows games to run natively under Linux with those. Some are even impressive, as Unreal Classic can run under Unreal Tournament as a Mod, pretty neat. As said above, it all depends of the game you wish to play...
Originally posted by RaveR_SwE For example, when i type in "Cedega Launch.exe" it only says "Cedega Launch.exe Could not run the specified command!"
Please, Help Me!
Then it's simply not installed. Please, share a bit with us will ya? . How did you install Cedega? Binary? RPM? Source?. Which commands did you use to install it? Any error messages? Which? Saying the game you are trying to install won't hurt either. If it's Steam, you are in for a big trouble, because Steam and Valve are an embarrassment...
And don't use Crossover to run games... Cedega is the way to go. But remember to check the game list at Cedega's page, to do not tear your hairs appart later if your game is not supported .
Okay, i typed in "Cedega ProgramName.exe" and it didn't work.....
But when i typed in "cedega ProgramName.exe" it worked.
But it says that it can find the .exe file. Must be that you said
about to run the command in the installed directory. I installed it
with CrossOver but i don't know how to run the command where
i installed the game...
Distribution: K/Ubuntu 12.04/14.04, Scientific Linux 6.3/6.4, Android-x86, Pretty much all distros at one point...
Is the original poster messing with us, or does he really not know how to do a change directory, or to substitute the name of his game where I put "ProgramName"?!?!?
RaveR_SwE, read a tutorial on basic Linux/Unix text-based commands (how to change directories, etc.). Remember that Linux is case-sensitive. Remember that Cross-Over and Cedega are two seperate implimentations of wine, and that they will necessarily put things in different places, where the other won't necessarily be able to use it.
