They work very well, (and natively) on the linux platform, some people have think they work even faster/smoother than with windows.

Now another problem

Thanks a lot. I have well installed quake with quake.x11 linux binaries. But I can't run it.

I type: cd /usr/local/games/quake
./quake.x11

It tells me: ---> bash: ./quake.x11: No existe el fichero o el directorio (Translation: File or directory does not exist)

Thanks Lava for helping me...

I'm sure it's my fault. I have tried 3 quake engines (fuhquake, squake, quake-x11)

I'm exhausted, I don't know what I do wrong...

you tried darkplaces? if youve played transfusion ( http://transfusion.sf.net ) a blood-like game built on the quake engine, it uses darkplaces, and it works great. try that.

Lava, :-( I'm so newbie...

Could you be so kind of telling me how to install Darkplaces? I have looked for information and I have tried but I don't success.

I have downloaded it from: http://icculus.org/twilight/darkplaces/download.html

I have downloaded the file: DarkPlaces engine Windows OpenGL build 20031207b

Can you explain me? I would be so thankful. Besides, that would help me installing other programs.

THANKS

Tell me you do have the WINDOWS version of quake installed in /usr/local/games/quake
Just the linux binary (i.e. quake.x11) on its own isn't enough. You need to put quake.x11 into the same directory as a windows version of the game (the same folder that contains the id1 directory. You also then need to make all the filenames lowercase.

Thanks Komakino.

Yes, I have the windows version of Quake. And I also did all the things you have told me except the last one. I don't know what that it means. Make all the filenaes lowercase?
