Cedega and Steam


I've installed cedega and steam fine. After I installed steam I exited out of it. I am wondering what link I should use to open it up with cedega. I tried /home/nathan/TransGaming_Drive/Program%20Files/Valve/Steam/STEAM.exe

but it gives me an error, does anyone know the right way to do it?

What error? If we don't know the error we don't know what's wrong . I also assume that you've typed "cedega /home/nathan/TransGaming_Drive/Program\ /Files/Valve/Steam/STEAM.exe"

I was wondering what the correct link to steam would be. When I hit the link above I get:


Steam.exe (main exception): Unable to change directory to /home/nathan/TransGaming_Drive/Program Files/Valve/Steam

you are getting the error because you cant enter spaces as is in linux, it doesn;t like it, when u have a space, type "\"

e.g: Directory = /home/Program Files

you type: /home/Program\ Files

notice the slash after "Program"

Now think about what you just said. If you put a "/" there, it will make it seem like there is a folder named "Programs" and another file named "Files".

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I'd really like to delete Windoze.

learnmelinux is right, you are trying to type spaces in Linux path-to. For example, I've Quake2 installed in my Linux box through cedega. To run it, Ive to type:

sh-3.00$ cedega .transgaming/c_drive/Program\ Files/Quake2/quake2.exe

You know how to use tab-completition right?. Simply press a few keys as cede <tab> and the terminal will complete it for ya. Use this often to minimize errors when typing long paths.

Regards!
