Trying to run NWN and Starcraft, among others, on Lindows


No need to flame Lindows here if you want. I personally dont care if you like it or not, I have agreed with myself to fight with it until I get it where I want it. Since I am new to Linux in any form and stubborn as hell, I will probably be bugging alot of people in here.

I have apt-get'ted wine. How do I run an install from a Windows disk on a Linux Distro? How do I use programs that I installed through apt-get at all. I cant find the "start" file anywhere?

Anybody help?

Check out my NWN guide over here in this thread. http://www.easylinuxguide.com/index....iewtopic&t=735
It is located on the 2nd page of my guide.
As for Starcraft you may need more than wine, maybe wineX. I am not into the whole emulation factor though so someone may point you in the right direction for that game.
